Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart can no longer pump enough blood to the rest of the body.
Heart failure is generally classified as systolic or diastolic heart failure.
"Systolic Heart Failure" is when your heart muscle cannot pump, or eject, the blood out of the heart very well.
"Diastolic Heart Failure" is when your heart muscles are stiff and do not fill up with blood easily.
