Abstract

Anemia is common in patients with chronic heart failure and has emerged as a potentially correctable risk factor for adverse outcomes in these patients. Whether anemia also correlates with increased morbidity has been less well investigated. We studied 912 patients to analyze the relationship among anemia, severity of chronic heart failure, and clinical outcome. We found that anemia is common in patients with chronic heart failure and is associated with greater disease severity and higher hospitalization and mortality rates.
