Heart failure is a weakening of the heart’s pumping power. With heart failure, the body doesn’t get enough oxygen and nutrients to meet its needs. Heart failure is the most common hospital admission diagnosis in patients age 65 or older and is associated with severe functional impairments and high rates of mortality and morbidity.
