Abstract
The hospitalized heart failure (HF) population is becoming a significant economic burden to Asian countries because of the growing elderly population, increased prevalence of HF, and recurrent rehospitalization. A targeted treatment strategy is needed with prognostic factors that can reduce mortality or rehospitalization after discharge. The accepted prognostic factors include age, low systolic blood pressure, ischemic heart disease, reduced left ventricular function, hyponatremia, and renal dysfunction. Prognostic factors for clinical outcomes in hospitalized patients with HF may be different in Asian people. Further research leading to better understanding of the characteristics of Asian patients hospitalized with HF is warranted.
