Heart failure and severe sepsis are two common conditions with high rates of associated morbidity, mortality, and healthcare resource utilization. Heart failure affects almost 6 million people in the United States and is characterized by frequent hospitalizations and high risk of death. We aim to study the effects of sepsis in patients with pre-existing heart failure. This is a novel area of research in the field of medicine.
