Heart Failure is a condition in which the heart too weak to pump enough blood to the body's other organs. The entire body depends on the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood delivered by the heart for proper function. Heart failure may result from narrowed arteries that supply blood to the heart itself -- coronary artery disease. A past heart attack, extreme obesity, and/or high blood pressure may also contribute to heart failure.

Percent of heart failure patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD), a condition where the heart doesn't pump enough blood throughout the body,who were given either an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) -- which are medications that help to relax the blood vessels -- at hospital discharge (CMS)
