Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle can't pump enough blood and oxygen properly, to meet your body's needs. This does not mean your heart has stopped or is about to stop working, and is usually treatable with an individualized care plan. You can trust that Carilion Clinic's Heart Failure team has you in good hands.
