Clinical Profile of Patients Hospitalised with Heart Failure in a Tertiary Care Hospital of Central India

Dr. Pradeep Deshmukh | Dr. Hardik More

Abstract: Heart failure HF is a widespread global health concern, with increasing prevalence attributed to factors such as aging populations, obesity, and chronic diseases. However, the landscape of HF etiology and management varies across regions. This study, conducted in India, sought to elucidate the clinical characteristics and medication patterns of HF patients, shedding light on the extent of evidence - based medicine implementation within the local community. A retrospective observational analysis of 186 HF patients was performed, revealing key findings: a notable proportion of patients had preserved systolic function, coronary heart disease was the leading cause of HF, and medication adherence to recommended therapies, especially beta - blockers, was suboptimal. These insights highlight the need for targeted interventions and guideline adherence to improve HF management outcomes in the Indian context.
