Heart failure means your heart can’t keep up with your body’s demand for oxygen as it should, and as a result, your body can’t get all the oxygen it needs.
With congestive heart failure (CHF), blood flowing away from your heart slows down, causing the blood returning to your heart to back up. This causes congestion in your tissues, which leads to swelling in your legs and ankles.
