In brief: Pretty serious.
Failure is never good.
But the underlying cause of failure is more important than the failure itself. Understanding the cause, be it valvular, pulmonary or l sided is the key to how serious it is and guides treatment. Heart failure in a woman is the same as in a man until pregnancy comes along.
