Heart Failure (HF) in chronic setting is an important cardiac cause of morbidity and mortality. HF burden in India is expected to increase because of increasing risk factors especially hypertension and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Treatment of HF in India has been as per recommendations from international guidelines. There are no guidelines for management of HF in India. Recently, European Society of Cardiology guidelines on management of HF were released. To understand the new evidence and new recommendations and to apply these in management of HF in India, experts from across the country provided consensus for adaptation of these ESC guideline recommendations in Indian setting. This article provides the consensus opinion from Indian experts on recommendations of ESC guideline for diagnosis and treatment of HF for adaptation in India.
