Heart Failure/Oedema

10,078 members with Heart Failure/Oedema

Heart failure is a chronic condition where the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood through to meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen. This causes fatigue and shortness of breath, and can cause edema, or swelling, in the arms and legs. Everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs or carrying groceries can become very difficult. Heart failure is a serious condition that can worsen over time. However, many people with heart failure lead a normal life when the condition is managed with heart failure medications and healthy lifestyle changes.
