Method: Observational study. The nutritional status have been evaluated by Subjective Global Assessment and Mini Nutritional Assessment the nutritional status of 377 patients joined in a high complexity hospital with decompensation of chronic heart failure. Results: The mean age was 75±10. The 51,5% (n=194) were men. According to the Subjective Global Assessment, 50,7 % (45,6 %-55,7 %) were normal nutrition, 41,9 % (37,0 %-46,9 %) were on risk of malnutrition and 7,4 % (5,2 %-10,5 %) were evident malnutrition.
