UNDERSTANDING HFrEF, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO
What is HFrEF?
A healthy heart is a muscular pump that squeezes and relaxes to deliver blood to the body. Heart failure doesn’t mean the heart has stopped. For people with HFrEF (a type of heart failure called “reduced ejection fraction”), it means the heart muscle is weak, so it can’t pump enough blood to keep up with the body’s needs. About half of people with heart failure have HFrEF. Unlike a heart attack, heart failure happens slowly. It’s a chronic condition that gets worse over time and can lead to hospitalization or death.
