    A person doesnt die directly from CHF. Congestive heart failure is a situation in which the heart cant pump blood well enough to meet the needs of the body in all circumstances.

CHF tends to be progressive over time, and eventually the heart may be so weak that it will fail completely instead of simply being inadequate to the task, at which point death occurs. But CHF itself doesnt directly cause death, rather its some complication precipitated by CHF that can cause death.
