The number of samples in this study were 197 patients with heart failure in Camelia Hospitalization Room Dr. Soetomo General Hospital Surabaya. Sampling technique was total sampling. The variables were age, sex, stage, symptoms, physical examination, and pharmacological treatment. The data were analyzed descriptively.


Results: Most heart failure causes in this hospital was coronary heart disease (40.6%). Patients aged 46-65 years old and male patients were more dominant although the difference was not really significant. Male patients were dominant in heart failure due to coronary heart disease and hypertension, meanwhile female patients were dominant in heart valve disease and other causes. Most patients in all causes of heart failure were diagnosed at advanced stage, such as stage III (35.5%) and stage IV (35.5%). Main symptom that was found more in the patients was dyspnea (70.1%), which could be found in coronary & heart valve disease. Physical examination results were based on the causes. Most pharmacological treatments that the patients had were Furosemide (88.3%) and Spironolactone (73.6%).
