  Failure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Failure (or flop) in general refers to the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective.
The criteria for failure are heavily dependent on context of use, and may be relative to a particular observer or belief system.
As well, the degree of success or failure in a situation may be differently viewed by distinct observers or participants, such that a situation that one considers to be a failure, another might consider to be a success, a qualified success or a neutral situation.

 Acute Kidney Failure: Encyclopedia of Medicine
Unlike chronic kidney failure, which is long term and irreversible, acute kidney failure is a temporary condition.
Acute kidney failure appears most frequently as a complication of serious illness, like heart failure,liver failure, dehydration, severe burns, and excessive bleeding (hemorrhage).
X rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography scan (CT), ultrasound, renal biopsy, and/or arteriogram of the kidneys may be used to determine the cause of kidney failure and level of remaining kidney function.

 What Causes Heart Failure?
Heart failure occurs when the heart loses some of its blood-pumping ability as a natural consequence of aging.
As a symptom of underlying heart disease, heart failure is closely associated with the major risk factors for coronary heart disease: smoking, high cholesterol levels, hypertension (persistent high blood pressure), diabetes and abnormal blood sugar levels, and obesity.
A single risk factor may be sufficient to cause heart failure, but a combination of factors dramatically increases the risk.

 Right Reason: Failure
It is, arguably, the experience, anticipation, and sense of inevitability of failure, or the absence of all these, that has shaped much of the self-understanding of conservatives and their opposites.
Most crucially: for those for whom failure is not inevitable, or for whom success is mandatory, the temptation is almost always overwhelming to see the end-state, in which all partial failures have been overcome, as overriding all person-centered considerations and restrictions.
In philosophical ethics, two of the most important treatments of failure are those of Bernard Williams and Thomas Nagel, in their somewhat different essays, both titled "Moral Luck." Williams, for example, argues in his essay that in some cases it is only success or failure that justifies or disjustifies an agent's choices.

Acute kidney failure may result from sudden inflammation of the spaces between the glomeruli and the tubules (acute interstitial nephritis) and inflammation of the glomeruli (acute glomerulonephritis).

 Congestive Heart Failure -- Biotechnology Encyclopedia
The term heart failure is frequently misused, especially when given as cause of death: it is not synonymous with "cessation of heartbeat".
There are many different ways to categorize heart failure, including the side of the heart involved (left heart failure vs. right heart failure) or whether the abnormality is due to contraction or relaxation of the heart (systolic heart failure vs. diastolic heart failure).
If there is a reversible cause of the heart failure (eg.: infection, alcohol ingestion, anemia, thyrotoxicosis, arrhythmia, or hypertension), that should be addressed as well.

 Your Guide to Heart Failure
Diastolic dysfunction (or diastolic heart failure) occurs when the heart contracts normally, but the ventricles do not relax properly or are stiff, and less blood enters the heart during normal filling.
The goals of treating heart failure are primarily to decrease the likelihood of disease progression (thereby decreasing the risk of death and the need for hospitalization), to lessen symptoms and to improve quality of life.
When heart failure occurs after a heart attack, the surgeon may choose to combine bypass surgery and/or valve repair, with removal of the infarcted (dead) area of heart tissue or the aneurysm.

Heart failure is progressive with the potential for gradual deterioration, but treatment can often slow the progression of the illness and substantially increase the patient's quality of life.

 Whiskey Bar: Failure is an Option   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Under the circumstances, the mindless chants of "failure is not an option" are starting to sound like the desperate prayers of the terminally ill. Failure is always an option -- particularly for morons who launch a war of choice under the impression that they can't possibly lose it.
The most serious threat, though, is that the neocons would use their newly regained freedom of action not to limit the fallout from failure in Iraq, but to invade Iran and/or Syria -- the same "flight forward" response to crisis that ultimately ruined imperial Germany.
Which is why the most likely scenario is that failure in Iraq will be followed by further setbacks in the war on terrorism, as the neocons (or their neolib counterparts) stumble from one ill-conceived fiasco to another.
