Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of HF patients who were revisited emergency department before the appointment date. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    All HF-peatient charts were reviewed and divided in revisit group and non revisit group.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Characteristics of the patients in revisit group [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The Characteristics of the patients in both groups such as underlying diseases, ejection fraction, and time for treating in emergency department. The results were compared to find the relation between both groups.

Detailed Description:

Because heart failure (HF) is the leading cause of hospitalization and readmission in many hospitals worldwide.

Identifying the risk factors of these HF patients in emergency department is the important reason for the proper management of the HF patients in the future. And can reduce number of hospitalization and readmission in our hospital.
