HEARTS "Heart function Assessment Registry Trial in Saudi Arabia"  is a national medical registry of the heart failure disease in all major geographical regions of Saudi Arabia

The main goal of Hearts registry is to study the current practice patterns in the management of patients with acute HF in order to assess the

gap between practice & evidence to improve the quality of cardiac care provided to such large population.

A furthermore strategic goal of this study is to establish heart function clinics across the country that will reduce the morbidity and hopefully the mortality of the heart failure disease by managing high-risk chronic HF patients.

Organization Structure

Several medical professional entities are integrated in HEARTS registry & represented by the Principal Coordinating Center, the Steering Committee, the satellite site principal investigators, & professional research assistants. The Principal Coordinating Center is chaired by Dr. Khalid F. AlHabib, Assistant Professor of Medicine & Head

Dr. Khalid Al-Habib

of Cardiology Dept. at King Fahad Cardiac Center, King Khalid University Hospital and King Saud university. Riyadh. additionally, he is the principal investigator of CARES & GULF-ACS presently undergoing registries & the former SPACE Registry.

Project Description

Heart failure (HF) is a complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the ventricle to fill with or eject blood. The cardinal manifestations of HF are dyspnea and fatigue, which may limit exercise tolerance, and fluid retention, which may lead to pulmonary congestion & peripheral edema. It represents a major and growing public health problem.

Our Objectives

To describe a comprehensive view (E.R/In-patient/Out-patient) of    the current causes, diagnostic & treatment strategies, short and long-term prognosis for patients with HF (systolic versus diastolic).

To identify opportunities to improve the care of patients with HF through implementation of quality initiative programs

To create a permanent database tool for continuous quality measurement useful to both country-wide studies and to individual hospitals seeking to improve quality of care & allow comparison with local and national practice patterns (i.e: NOT how to choose a hospital when seeking cardiac care since the involved hospitals will be kept anonymous in the publication process)

To evaluate practice trends in the proper use of old &/or new tests medications & devices, & encourage use of those with clear evidence and thus raise the standard of care & reduce the gap between guidelines and “real-life” practice.

► To foster collaborative interaction with other cardiovascular

outcome assessment projects.  .....Read more










Mission Statement

" The right treatment for the right patients at the right time: turning evidence into action in patients with heart failure "

Our Vision

To improve the morbidity and mortality of acute and chronic heart failure patients by improvement of evidence-based therapies and establishment of disease management programs.

Ethical Considerations

An ethics approval letter will be obtained from the ethics committee of each individual participated hospital.

There is no consent form to be collected from each individual patient in this registry for the reason that Individuals’ names & identities are un-identified designed to be encrypted during the whole study period starting from data entry & ending by the publications.
