In brief: Heart failure

Heart failure means that the heart is not pumping effectively enough to meet the body's needs.
There are many reasons this happens, including heart attacks, valve problems, and heart muscle diseases. The treatment depends on the cause. Some kinds of HF are entirely reversible, and others are not but can be improved with the right meds, diet, and treatments.
