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.

Death rate of Medicare patients who were admitted to the hospital for heart failure and died within 30 days of hospital admission. The 30-day period is used because this is the time period when deaths are most likely to be related to the care patients received in the hospital. (CMS)
