With acute heart failure, you experience a sudden, rapid decline in heart functioning. Heart failure, which means your heart can’t pump as well as it should, can occasionally quickly get worse. In that case, it’s referred to as acute or sudden heart failure. Heart failure is a life-threatening condition. According to the Cleveland Clinic, it is a “sudden, life-threatening condition in which the heart is unable to do its job.” In other words, the heart still beats, but it cannot deliver the adequate oxygen that the body demands.
