In the United States, 5 million individuals have heart failure. Each year, 550 000 new cases are diagnosed, and there are 1 million hospitalizations. The direct and indirect costs of heart failure are estimated at $29 billion per year. Although heart failure presents enormous healthcare burdens, outcomes in heart failure are highly variable, with annual mortality varying from 5% to 75%. Physicians need to counsel patients about prognosis to enable informed decisions about medications, devices, transplantation, and end-of-life care. Previous heart failure (HF) risk models stratify patients into three risk groups using peak oxygen consumption (VO2). An individualized estimate of survival in HF has not been reported. The Seattle Heart Failure Model was derived by retrospectively investigating predictors of survival among 1,125 HF patients in PRAISE1 (NYHA 3B-4, EF
