Heart failure is a syndrome consisting of symptoms such as breathlessness, fluid retention & fatigue. These symptoms occur when the heart is struggling to pump or relax as it should to ensure enough blood, oxygen & nutrients are circulated around your body.
Heart failure is a lifelong chronic condition requiring medication and sometimes other treatments. Palliative care needs may be considered alongside this and can when appropriate include end of life care.
