The heart is basically a muscle that re-oxygenates blood and keeps it pumping through the body.  Chronic heart failure is a condition that occurs when the heart’s ability to pump blood is weakened.  Since the heart can’t adequately pump the blood through, it compensates in two ways: it becomes dilated in order to hold excess blood or stiffening occurs in the heart chambers. Both dilation and stiffening weaken the heart over time.

Chronic heart failure (CHF) can develop over a number of years.

Treatment for chronic heart failure ranges from medical management to a heart transplant, depending on the patient and the severity of the condition.
