Heart failure happens when the heart loses its ability to pump enough blood, leaving the organs and tissues with insufficient oxygen and nutrients to function properly. In congestive heart failure, there is a build-up of fluid in the tissues (an oedema).
Adopt a healthy lifestyle to prevent and control risk factors (diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, smoking and obesity) for coronary artery disease which is the commonest cause for heart failure.
