Supportive Care in Heart Failure

This chapter starts by addressing the epidemiology and aetiology of heart failure (HF) with cognitive impairment. The clinical features and treatment of cognitive impairment associated with HF are shown. All the available evidence regarding cognitive impairment associated with HF clearly indicates that mortality and readmission rates cannot be considered any longer the only outcome variables in the management of patients with HF. As stated by several authors, research in the field of HF should broaden to a comprehensive view of health outcomes, so yielding evidence that might support clinical decision-making, improve clinical practice, and guide health policy. The course of research on the multidimensional assessment of older patients with HF, that begun nearly twenty years ago, is still far from its end.

Keywords:   cognitive impairment, heart failure, epidemiology, aetiology, treatment, mortality, readmission rates
