Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is prevalent in heart failure (HF) patients, yet these patients are poorly characterized. We aimed to describe the characteristics and outcomes of patients with systolic dysfunction and COPD in a contemporary HF randomized trial. Methods and Results: EVEREST investigated 4,133 patients hospitalized with worsening HF and an ejection fraction (EF)
