As an outcome, there is improper blood flow to supply the body parts with oxygen and essential nutrients. The word heart failure does not signify that the heart halts beating absolutely, but that the heart is not functioning properly.

    There are two rudimentary disorders in congestive heart failure:

    • Systolic dysfunction happens when the heart can't supply sufficient blood to fulfill all the body requirements.

    • Diastolic dysfunction happens when the heart is disabled to accept all the blood supplied to it.

    Many people suffer from both systolic and diastolic heart failure.

    The symptoms of congestive heart failure are:
