illnesses that are relevant to them.The information provided here is for

summarise Heart failure.As we know the heart functioning is critical to life.The heart being to pump blood around the body properly is sometimes referred to
as heart failure.This usually occurs because it has become too weak
or rigid to carry out its function properly.Although people of different
ages can develop heart failure it tends to be more common in older people. Heart failure is a progressive and long term condition that worsens over time. Although there is no cure, the symptoms associated with heart failure can be controlled for
a long period of time they can span across many years.
