Despite advances in the treatment of coronary artery disease, studies - both local and global, confirm an alarming increase in morbidity and mortality in India compared to the global best-in-class benchmark. Heart failure facts in India needs to be gathered scientifically and carefully investigated before specific areas can be targeted for improvement. The National Heart Failure Registry of Indian College of Cardiology is precisely an initiative to facilitate this. The study plan aims to enrol 10,000 patients with acute decompensated heart failure, as they get admittance into government or private hospitals across various states.
The Proforma will capture over 150 parameters on a per patient basis including information on demographics, clinical patterns, and diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for these patients. The study objectives includes making recommendations to improve planning and utilization of resources towards achieving the best-in-class standards nationally.
The study plan is being conducted in two distinct phases. The intent is to enrol patients with acute decompensated heart failure, as they were admitted into government or private hospitals across various states.
|Pilot phase (August 01, 2018 to August 31, 2020)
|ICC - National Heart Failure Registry (A registry for acute decompensated heart failure patients in India)
September 1, 2019 onwards
|Enrolled up to 5000 patients
|Twenty Two (22) centres from different regions were enrolled in the study to achieve a national footprint as indicated under Participating Centres.
|The CTRI Phase is starting with 12 centres as indicated under Participating Centres and may be expanded.
|The current status of the pilot study can be viewed in the summary dashboard.
