As we know the heart functioning is critical to life. The heart failing to pump blood around the body properly is sometimes referred to as heart failure. This usually occurs because it has become too weak or rigid to carry out its function properly.
Although people of different ages can develop heart failure it tends to be more common in older people.
Heart failure is a progressive and long-term condition that worsens over time. Although there is no cure, the symptoms associated with heart failure can be controlled for a long period of time that can span across many years.
