What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure is a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart muscles are unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s requirement for blood and oxygen. In India, about 8-10 million people suffer from heart failure disease.

There are two types of Heart Failure:

Diastolic Heart Failure: The heart can't properly fill with enough blood during the resting period between each beat.

Systolic Heart Failure: Also called left ventricle heart failure, it means that the heart can’t pump or squeeze enough blood out to the rest of the body.
