Heart failure is one of the most important causes of dyspnea and fatigue in patients who attend to the ED with this chief complaint.

Dyspnea is mostly on exertion, along with orthopnea, increased nocturia urination at night, having to wake up and possible progressive lower extremity edema, specially at the end of the day. This increases pressures within heart chambers, causing a series of mechanical abnormalities that end up in vascular congestion, both in lungs causing impaired gas exchange in alveoli and dyspnea and in the proximal venous system causing jugular vein distention and edema of lower limbs.

The following illustrations review some of the clinical features, the patients who are at most risk and the pathophysiology of this complex disease.
