Purpose of Study 

SODIUM-HF is a multicenter clinical trial in ambulatory patients with chronic HF to evaluate the efficacy of a low sodium containing diet on a composite clinical outcome composed of of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular hospitalizations and cardiovascular emergency department visits.

The hypothesis of this study is that patients following a low-sodium containing diet will have fewer clinical events (fewer hospital readmissions or emergency department visits, longer survival) than those on Usual Care.
