Permanent Observatory of Heart Failure

2014-07-23 21:09:46 | BioPortfolio


The observatory consists of a row of data collection on a population composed of all patients with heart failure cared for in centers participating in the national education program for patients (named I-CARE) in the form of two groups. Patients who are undergoing a program of therapeutic education track are listed and included in the group of patients educated. Patients who receive no education or only a minimal element for any reason whatsoever are also listed and included in the group of patients who are not educated.

The following of patients will be periodic after their entry in the observatory, up to 2 years of follow up.


The Center for patients with heart failure cared for in a center practicing therapeutic education dedicated to heart failure.

The definition of heart failure selected for inclusion is that recommended by the European Society of Cardiology : presence of at least two signs or symptoms of heart failure (dyspnea, edema of the ankles crackles) at rest or during exercise associated with objective evidence (preferably by echocardiography) of cardiac dysfunction ( systolic and / or diastolic) (resting) and in case of doubt, a response to specific treatment of heart failure.

All patients who are undergoing a program of therapeutic education track are listed and included in the group of patients educated.

All patients who receive no education or only a minimal element for any reason whatsoever are also listed and included in the group of patients who are not educated.

Follow up is done by CRAs at the French Society of Cardiology, by mailing and phone contacts.

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.

A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.

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.
