Heart Failure Care
Heart failure is a weakening of the heart’s pumping power. With heart failure, the body does not get enough oxygen and nutrients to meet its needs. The heart tries to pump more blood, but the muscle walls become weaker over time. Symptoms of heart failure may include shortness of breath from fluid in the lungs, swelling (such as in legs, ankles or abdomen), dizziness, fatigue, weakness, cold or clammy skin or a rapid or irregular heartbeat.
