In brief: Poor heart pumping

This is when the heart is unable to pump out enough blood.
This can be caused by many things, including scarring of the heart after a heart attack, valve problems, infections, and other causes.

In brief: CO=SVxHR

Cardiac output is the result of heart rate and volume pumped per heart beat (stroke volume).
If volume goes down like in bleeding, heart rate goes up to maintain cardiac output.
