Summary

During the last decade, progress has been made in the management of heart failure. However, the changing characteristics of patients and practices in the "real world" and their impact on the prognosis of patients admitted for acute heart failure remain poorly studied.

2000 consecutive patients recruited in a single day in hospitals volunteered to participate in the cohort during a day dedicated.

Description

The total duration of recruitment is one day (date to be set soon by the Executive Committee): all patients hospitalized, and whatever their date of admission with the diagnosis of heart failure will be selected for the study.

Information on each hospital stay will be obtained at baseline and at the end of the hospitalization by the hospital teams.

A telephone follow-up will be conducted at 3 months among survivors and / or their doctor by CRAs dedicated to the French Society of Cardiology.

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.

A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

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