Global Congestive Heart Failure Registry

2017-03-13 20:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Heart failure (HF) is a major health problem worldwide but there is no global HF study that documents demographics, socioeconomic and clinical factors, diagnostic and management patterns, etiology, biomarkers, co-morbidities, treatments, quality of life, barriers to care and outcomes in all parts of the world. Such knowledge is essential in the prevention and treatment of this global disease. The Global Congestive Heart Failure Registry (G-CHF) is a global registry of approximately 20,000-25,000 HF patients enrolled over approximately 5 years to study these risks and causes of HF.

Description

The G-CHF Registry is a prospective global cohort study of approximately 20,000-25,000 HF patients enrolled over approximately 5 years. Baseline data will be obtained on demographic and socioeconomic data, clinical and laboratory variables, co-morbidities, biomarkers, echocardiography, HF causes, medication use, management patterns, quality of life, and health systems. Six-month, 12-month, 18-month and 24-month follow-up data will be obtained to document patient outcomes and factors associated with outcomes.

A sub-study of approximately 4000 patients (a subset of the main study population) will be performed to measure frailty, cognitive and lung function, mental health, medication adherence, patient-reported barriers to care, dietary assessment, and collection of blood and urine samples for central storage and analysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.

Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
