Heart Disease & Failure

Heart disease describes the conditions that affect your heart. Diseases under the heart disease umbrella include blood vessel diseases, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and heart defects you're born with i.e. congenital heart defects, Rheumatic heart disease, Hypertensive heart disease, Ischemic heart disease, Hypertension and many more.

Heart failure is a condition in which your heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs. The term “heart failure” doesn't mean that your heart or is about to stop working or has stopped. However, heart failure is that serious condition which requires medical care. If you have heart failure, you may tire easily and have to limit your activities. It can lead to heart failure by weakening the heart muscle over time.
