In brief: Multiple ways
Treatment can focus on 1) improving symptoms (using medications such as diuretics) or 2) treating the underlying problem (such as surgically repairing a valve) or 3) improving the function of the heart (such as a biventricular pacemaker).
Factors that aggravate heart failure such as anemia or hyperthyroidism can be corrected.

In brief: CHF
Treatment depends on what the cause of the CHF is.
Could be surgical, could be medical. Systolic CHF is different from diastolic CHF and valvar stenosis CHF is different from valvar insufficiency chf. Virtually all kinds have diuretic as part of the treatment.
