What is Congestive Heart Failure or CHF?
- The body is made up of living tissue that requires fuel (oxygen and nutrients) for survival
- The supply of blood (which carries these vital substances) increases and decreases with the needs of the body
- CHF occurs when the heart is unable to meet the needs of the body, i.e., when demand exceeds supply
