Exercise Capacity in Heart Failure

Effect of mechanIcal circulatoRy Support ON Exercise Capacity aMong pAtieNts With Heart Failure

This study will evaluate how the cardiovascular system interacts with mechanical hearts to provide blood flow to the body during exercise. Two aims are proposed: 1) to determine the impact of a mechanical heart on exercise pressor reflexes in heart failure patients; and 2) to define the primary determinant(s) of exercise capacity in heart failure patients before and after device implantation.
