Heart Failure

Overview
  • Heart Failure is a clinical syndrome caused by an inability of the heart to meet the baseline physiological demands of the body. Because failure of the left heart and failure of the right heart result in different clinical syndromes we discuss them separately. However, it should be pointed out that the primary cause of right heart failure is left heart failure. Consequently, the overlapping syndrome of right and left heart failure is commonly found in the context of a single patient and is frequently termed "Congestive Heart Failure".
