Cardiac Insufficiency

Cardiac insufficiency, also known as heart failure, occurs when the heart cannot pump strongly enough to make sufficient blood reach the entire body. Consequently, people feel weaker, tired or experience shortness of breath. It is the first cause of hospitalization in the population over 65 years.
