Standard Sets

Heart Failure

The ICHOM Standard Set for Heart failure is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to persons with Heart failure. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

  1. Includes dyspnoea, fatigue and tiredness, disturbed sleep, and peripheral oedema.
  2. Includes health-related quality of life, maximum physical exertion.
  3. Includes depression and anxiety, confidence and self-esteem.
  4. Includes admissions, appointments.
