Heart Failure (Congestive Heart Failure) Medications

Definition of Heart Failure:

The purpose of the heart is to pump blood, which contains oxygen and nutrients, to the rest of the body. Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is simply the failure of the heart to perform this main function adequately. Of course, a lack of blood pumped to the body is only considered CHF if the heart actually receives a sufficient volume of blood from the incoming vessels in the first place (i.e., normal filling pressures). When there is not enough blood for the heart to pump out, the problem is not CHF.

Congestive Heart Failure occurs when the flow of blood from the heart (cardiac output) decreases, or fluid backs-up behind the failing ventricle, or both.
