Introduction To Heart Failure

​You may have heart failure if the muscle in your heart becomes very weak and cannot pump blood throughout the body. This causes blood to flow more slowly, and when the condition worsens, you will find it harder to breathe. Fluid also builds up in your lungs, causing you to cough and wheeze.​

People with heart failure also have swollen ankles, feet or abdomen because fluid builds up in their organs.​​​​
