The purpose of this research is to develop patient-centered palliative care interventions to improve patient-provider communication and Quality of Life (QoL) of ethnic and racial minority patients living with life-limiting illnesses. Eliciting personal experiences is an effective way for patients to communicate their cultural values and beliefs. This study will assess how to integrate the patients' personal experience narratives into the electronic health record (EHR). The primary hypothesis is that the implementation of a patient-centered intervention to elicit personal experiences that are included in the EHR will improve patient-provider communication and patients' QoL.
The DERIVATE study was conceived to integrate the information resulted from clinical data, transthoracic echocardiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging to provide a more reliable risk stratification in patients affected by heart failure (HF) and worthy of prophylactic implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapy. The main purposes of this multicenter registry are to: 1) determine CMR findings, and specifically late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) features, T1 mapping, and extracellular volume (ECV) that predict sudden cardiac death (SCD) and ventricular arrhythmia; 2) provide a comprehensive clinical and imaging score that effectively improves the selection of patients who deserve a prophylactic ICD therapy; 3) evaluate the contribution of machine learning to predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) as compared to standard clinical scores.
This retrospective observation is to investigate the incidence,clinical outcomes and prognosis of hospitalized heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in patients with acute myocardial infarction(AMI).
This study aims to assess the effectiveness of a social incentive-based gamification intervention to increase physical activity in the 3 months after hospital discharge.
This VA QUERI Partnered Evaluation Initiative will evaluate the impact of an immersive Point-of-care Ultrasound (POCUS) Training Course on provider skill acquisition and retention; the frequency of POCUS use by trained providers; and the barriers/facilitators to POCUS in the VHA. Data sources include pre- and post-course assessment tools, medical coding data, and course evaluations. Providers that participate in the POCUS Training Course will be compared to control providers from wait-listed facilities. Additionally, participating facilities vs. wait-listed facilities for the POCUS Training Course will be compared. Findings from this project will guide ongoing efforts of the investigators' operating partners, VA Specialty Care Centers of Innovation (SCCI) and the VA Simulation Learning and Research Network (SimLEARN), to develop a national POCUS training program and facilitate implementation of POCUS use system-wide in the VA healthcare system.
The objective of this study is to determine ventricular loading conditions during and after PulseCath® iVAC2L support, and assess its impact on specific load dependent humoral factors and cardiac enzymes. These specific patterns are so far unknown and will be compared with the validated FDA-cleared and CE marked Impella CP. Ten cases with Impella CP will be performed in this study to obtain the exact same measurements for comparing purposes.
The aim of this study is evaluate the effect of whey protein supplementation on muscle mass preservation, improvement of strength and quality of life, and inflammatory parameters in patients with heart failure NYHA I or II followed by a cardiac rehabilitation program.
The purpose of this study is to obtain single-center safety and feasibility data on patients managed with reduced anti-coagulation, and the incidence of thrombotic and bleeding adverse events associated with the HeartMate 3 LVAS therapy.
This study will evaluate the performance of a curriculum using medical simulators to train patients with advanced heart failure and their caregivers to master the self-management of ventricular assist devices (a device implanted into the heart to help circulate the blood). The investigators expect this training will improve self-management skills, and reduce VAD-related infections and re-hospitalizations. In addition to providing innovative training to the patients and their caregivers, the study will advance our knowledge of the effects of simulation-based training on patient self-management and safety.
The purpose of this study is to Evaluate the Safety of DILATREND SR Cap. in Korean Patients with Essential hypertension, Chronic stable angina and Congestive heart failure for 52 weeks.
