Heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body. Heart failure can be caused by coronary artery disease, a heart attack, heart valve disease, high blood pressure, heart arrhythmias and even a virus or a toxic agent such as chemotherapy.
