AbstractSince heart failure is a significant cause of mortality and morbidity Understanding the clinical profile, risk factors, and outcome predictors in patients with heart failure is crucial. Considered to be the main electrolytes linked to the electrical characteristics of the cardiac membrane are serum sodium, potassium, and calcium, which determine four phases of the action potential following an incident of acute myocardial infarction, serum electrolyte abnormalities are frequent whose clinical significance in both STEMI and NSTEMI has not yet been fully recognised yet. With the above available literature there still seems to be a lacuna especially with regard to Indian population, hence this study was taken up mainly to assess, measure and determine serum electrolytes and its association in acute heart failure patients based on the outcomes.
