Abstract

Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Whilst anaemia is known to cause heart failure, CHF may also frequently cause anaemia. There is a positive correlation between the severity of heart failure and the prevalence and severity of anaemia in CHF. The presence of anaemia in CHF independently predicts increased mortality in HF. There are many potential reasons for the development of anaemia in CHF but most of the anaemia seen in CHF is the "anaemia of chronic illness". This review will discuss the prevalence of anaemia in CHF, its causes, and its prognostic importance.
