Hello,

ASCVD -Atherosclerotic Cardio-Vascular disease.It is a disease of blood vessels which become narrow due to deposition of fat inside the vessels(Old age,smoking) and when they affect the vessels of the heart, it is called ASCVD.

CHF - Congestive Heart failure.When the blood vessels to the heart are narrowed to the extent that it doesn't sustain the heart,the heart fails which is called as CHF.

I hope this helps you.

Regards,

Dr.Tharun
