EpiCast Report: Heart Failure - Epidemiology Forecasts to 2026
Heart failure (HF), also referred to as congestive cardiac failure, is a heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic needs of the body (AHA, 2015a). HF commonly occurs in people older than 50 years of age, and severity increases progressively with age (Mosterd and Hoes, 2007). The symptoms can develop quickly, such as in acute HF, at which time the patient needs to be hospitalized. However, in chronic HF (CHF), the symptoms develop gradually (NHS, 2014).
Eventually, without the heart's pumping action to deliver oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the cells, fatigue, shortness of breath, and coughing results. Even everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs, or carrying weight can become tedious.
In the 7MM, it is forecast that the diagnosed incident cases of HF will increase from 1,990,569 cases in 2016 to 2,468,827 cases in 2026 at an annual growth rate (AGR) of 2.40%. The US had the highest number of diagnosed incident cases of HF in the 7MM in both 2016 and 2026, at 827,525 cases in 2016, and 1,081,878 cases in 2026.
In the 7MM, epidemiologists forecast that the diagnosed prevalent cases of CHF will increase from 14,403,423 cases in 2016 to 17,127,297 cases in 2026 at an AGR of 1.89%. The US had the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of CHF in the 7MM in both 2016 and 2026, at 5,816,242 cases in 2016, and 7,115,415 cases in 2026.
The report EpiCast Report: Heart Failure - Epidemiology Forecasts to 2026 provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and the global trends for HF in the seven major markets (7MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). It includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed incident cases of HF, diagnosed incident cases of HF segmented by ejection fraction and ventricular dysfunction, acute HF hospitalizations, acute HF hospitalizations by worsening HF, advanced HF, and de novo HF, and acute HF hospitalization by patients admitted and discharged, hospital length of stay for acute HF hospitalization, diagnosed prevalent cases of chronic HF (CHF), and diagnosed prevalent cases of CHF segmented by ejection fraction.
