Abstract

Background In the United States, heart failure has emerged as the leading first-listed diagnosis among hospitalized older adults. Methods The number and prevalence of hospitalizations, procedure use, and discharge outcomes for men and women aged greater than or equal to 35 yearshospitalized with heart failure were estimated from National Hospital Discharge Survey data for the years 1985 through 1995. Results In 10 years, the number of hospitalizations increased from 577,000to 871,000 for a first-listed diagnosis and from 1.7 to 2.6 million for any diagnosis of heart Failure. Almost 78% of men and 85% of women hospitalized with heart failure were aged greater than or equal to 65 years. Among persons hospitalized with any diagnosis of heart failure, in-hospital mortality rate decreased from 1985 to 1995 whereas prevalence of discharge to long-term care increased. In 1995, 67% of male patients were discharged home, 12% were discharged to long-term care, and 8% died during hospitalization; the corresponding values for female patients were 58%, 21%, and 8%. Men had twice the prevalence of invasive cardiac procedures as did women during hospitalization. Conclusions The growing burden of heart failure can be expected to increase during the next decade unless innovative interventions and primary and secondary prevention strategies are implemented.
