— An older term for heart failure. Because not allpatients with heart failure have problems with excess fluid, such as in the lungs or extremities,the term "heart failure" is preferred over "congestive heart failure." Heart failure is the inability ofthe heart to pump out all the blood that returns to it. This results in blood backing up in the veinsthat lead to the heart and sometimes in fluid accumulating in various parts of the body. (See also heart failure.
