The investigators will examine the effects of 12-weeks of nutritional interventions in older participants who have a symptom of mild to moderate heart failure.
The idea behind the Future Patient research project is to develop a telerehabilitation program and tools for patients with heart failure. The hypothesis for this study is that participation in a telerehabilitation program for patients with heart failure will increase the patients' quality of life and multi‐parametric (subjective and objective) individualized monitoring in a telerehabilitation program for patients with heart failure will increase detection of worsening of symptoms and avoid future hospitalization of the HF-patients.
The GUIDE-HF IDE clinical trial is intended to demonstrate the effectiveness of the CardioMEMS™ HF System in an expanded patient population including heart failure (HF) patients outside of the present indication, but at risk for future HF events or mortality.
Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a major and growing public health problem and poses economic burden on the society. There is a need for a safe, equipment-free, low-cost, and easily implemented exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program for CHF patients in China. Baduanjin exercise, translated as 'eight silken movements', is one of the most common forms of traditional Chinese exercise and it could have value to be integrated into a exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program for CHF patients, together with education, evaluation and consultancy. Accordingly, the BESMILE-HF program applying the Baduanjin exercise as the central component, has been developed in Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine which is one of the largest hospitals of Chinese medicine in China. This project is to evaluate the efficacy and acceptability of BESMILE-HF program in patients with CHF in China, and it will be based on a randomized controlled trial and a qualitative study.
Background: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a multi factorial disease, affecting clinical outcomes in failing heart (HF) patients treated by Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy with a defibrillator (CRT-d). Methods: One hundred and ninety five T2DM patients will receive a CRT-d treatment. Randomly the study population will receive a CRT-d via multipolar left ventricle (LV) lead pacing (n 99 as Multipolar group), v/s a CRT-d via bipolar LV pacing (n 96, as Bipolar group). These patients will be followed by clinical, and instrumental assessment, and telemetric device control at follow up. Study design will be to evaluate, in failing heart T2DM patients, cardiac deaths, all cause deaths, arrhythmic events, CRT-d responders rate, hospitalizations for HF worsening, phrenic nerve stimulation (PNS), and LV catheter dislodgment events (and re-intervention for LV catheter re-positioning), comparing multipolar CRT-d v/s bipolar CRT-d group of patients at follow up.
Cognitive Intervention to Improve Memory in Heart Failure patients
This study tests the hypothesis that endogenous bradykinin contributes to effects of a combined angiotensin receptor blocker/neprilysin inhibitor (LCZ696 or Entresto)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of an early, coordinated rehabilitation intervention for patients with severe heart failure in NYHA class III and IV with a ejection fraction of <40% of normal cardiac function measured on frequency of readmissions, physical ability and participation in activities of daily living and quality of life.
Patients with chronic heart failure need a "safe and effective" exercise program that will improve their quality of life. For this study, we will determine if adult chronic heart failure patents assigned to an experimental exercise group of walking and Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) program will have an additional beneficial effects on respiratory muscle strength (PImax), cardiovascular endurance, quality of life, walking speed, heart rate variability, and physical activity level compared to subjects who are assigned to the home walking and "sham" Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) program.
