Abstract: Acute heart failure (AHF), can occur as decompensated chronic heart failure (HF) or as a first episode, "new onset". The aim of this study was to analyse the clinical characteristics and prognosis at one-year in a cohort of patients with new onset AHF. Prospective observational study of 3,550 patients with AHF. We compared patients with new onset HF with the others. Restricting the analysis to new onset AHF patients, we analysed the clinical characteristics, readmissions, mortality and impact of left ventricular ejection fraction on the prognosis. A total of 1,105 (31%) patients fulfil the criteria for new onset AHF. These patients versus the rest, were younger, had a higher aetiology of hypertension and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction, less global comorbidity and better baseline overall functional status. After one year, mortality in new onset HF was less than chronic decompensated HF (15 vs. 27%; p New onset AHF shows a clinical profile and prognosis different to that of chronic decompensated HF. Higher comorbidity, renal function and treatment post-discharge predict a higher risk of mortality.
