ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on how 1-year mortality after first hospitalization for heart failure can be similar in patients with preserved or reduced ejection fraction (DHF). DHF is primarily a disease of the elderly and women with hypertension and that it is clinically indistinguishable from systolic HF (SHE). EF is the basis of the most clinically important classification of HF into SHF and DHF.
