Congestive Heart Failure

More than six million adults in the U.S. have heart failure1, and is the leading cause of hospital admissions for persons over age 652.

Congestive heart failure happens when the heart is not able to pump blood effectively, which can cause your organs to receive inadequate blood, oxygen, and nutrients. Fluid builds up in your body’s tissue and can cause increased pressure on your heart.

Congestive heart failure is a progressive condition that can worsen over time. It’s important to work with your physician
