What Is The Diagnosis Called When You Have A Weak Heart That Doesnt Pump But At 20% The Regular Rate?

not necessarily I was diagnosed with Acute Systolic Heart Failure. Not everyone has the congestion as long as it is treated with diuretics. Congestive heart failure is have so much extra fluid that it backs up into your lungs and makes it hard to breath or need high does of lasix or have to be on oxygen at home. I have cardiomyopathy , Left Ventricular Heart Failure, Leaky Mitral Valve . Reduced Ejection Fraction Rate of 20-25%
