Background: Fatigue consists the most common symptom that experience patients with heart failure. Objective: of the study was to explore factors associated with fatigue in hospitalized patients with heart failure. Methods : In the present study, 60 hospitalized patients were enrolled. Data collection was performed by the method of the interview using a questionnaire that included  demographic, clinical and other characteristics as well as the scale of Fatigue (MFIS-Greek). Results: At least 50% of the participants  scored below 69 (median) in the total fatigue score and below 41 and 28 for the physical and mental fatigue, respectively. These values indicate moderate to high effects of heart failure in the fatigue patient’s felt. Finally, it was found that patients who were a little or not at all informed about their state of health had 13.9 points higher score in total fatigue than patients who were very informed (p=0.018, 95%CI: 2.47, 25.34). Similarly, patients with insomnia had 11.11 points higher score in total fatigue than those without insomnia (p=0.034, 95%CI: 0.87, 21.34). Regarding  mental fatigue, patients who were enough informed about their state of health had 8.46 points higher score in mental fatigue than patients who were very informed (p=0.004, 95%CI: 2.78, 14.14). Conclusion: Assessment of fatigue is essential in order to provide holistic treatment to hospitalized patients with heart failure.
