Aims: Heart Failure (HF) is a growing epidemic globally and a challenging situation particularly for a country like India. There is paucity of data in the Indian context and the Indian College of Cardiology National Heart Failure Registry (ICCNHFR) would be the first of its kind in understanding the aetiology, demographics and treatment pattern in the country. The rationale and design of the study is described. Methods and Results: This is a prospective observational registry study of Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (ADHF) across various hospitals in India. This would include data of consecutive adult patients admitted with acute heart failure in the hospitals. This study is from Sep 2019 to Sep 2021 and is expected to enroll about 10000 patients. The primary data would be to analyse the demographics, aetiology, comorbid conditions, inhospital mortality, 30 day and one year mortality and rehospitalisation. The secondary aim would be understand the diagnostic patterns and therapeutic options offered for these patients.Conclusion: The present registry is designed to analyse the national data on ADHF. This would identify gaps in HF care and therapy. This would help in improving quality of heart failure care in the country and better resource utilization. This will help in the reduction of mortality and morbidity rate related to HF
