Congestive Heart Disease

Congestive Heart Disease is the incapability of the heart to pump and supply adequate blood supply to the body.

Congestive Heart Disorder can lead to heart failure, which is extremely life-threatening. The heart is the primary organ that is responsible to provide sufficient blood supply to every part of the body. It is a literal pump machine. The heart pumps blood to the pulmonary system throughthe right ventricle to oxygenate the blood and pumps blood to every part of the body through the left ventricle. Without the heart the body would die of hypoxia and systemic organ failure.
