This guideline offers best practice advice on the care of adult patients (aged 18 years or older) who have symptoms or a diagnosis of chronic heart failure. It aims to define the most effective combination of symptoms, signs and investigations required to establish a diagnosis of heart failure, and those which will influence therapy or provide important prognostic information. It also gives guidance on the treatment, monitoring and support of patients with heart failure.
