Exercise Training Associated With Inspiratory Muscle Training in Heart Failure

The investigators hypothesize that aerobic exercise training associated with respiratory muscle training will cause additional benefits in the autonomic control and respiratory function compared to isolated exercise training or respiratory training in chronic heart failure patients.

Phase N/A

Systematic Assessment and Targeted Improvement of Services Following Yearlong Surgical Outcomes Surveys

The overarching purpose of SATISFY-SOS is to implement a rigorous process to assess short-term and intermediate-term outcomes of surgical and procedural patients who receive anesthesia services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital facilities, located in St. Louis, Missouri. Specifically, patients will be followed for major morbidity events, for mortality, and for quality of ...

Phase N/A

Contribution of Endothelin-1 to Exercise Intolerance in Heart Failure

Specific Aim 1 will determine the direct effect of vascular endothelin-1 (ET-1) on skeletal muscle vasoconstriction in HF and age-matched controls. Intra-arterial infusion of the ETA subtype receptor will be undertaken to pharmacologically probe disease-related changes in the ET-1 pathway at rest and during exercise. It is hypothesized that ET-1-mediated ...

Phase N/A

Tolvaptan for Advanced or Refractory Heart Failure

Despite its demonstrated efficacy and tolerability, Tolvaptan remains underutilized for the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) in many centers. Post-hoc analysis suggests that Tolvaptan may provide optimal outcomes in patients with more advanced heart failure (HF) including those with cardiorenal syndrome, marked hyponatremia and severe congestion, or a ...

Phase

Indicor Validation

Patients who are scheduled to undergo a left heart cardiac catheterization for direct measure of left ventricular end diastolic pressure (LVEDP) as part of routine care will be asked to participate. Investigators will take non-invasive measures of LVEDP using the Indicor device, repeated at three time points before and after ...

Phase N/A

Cardiac Rehabilitation and Noninvasive Ventilation in Heart Failure

BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) is a cardiovascular syndrome with enormous impact on public health by high morbidity and mortality rates that are associated. Studies show that changes in striated skeletal muscle of those individuals, possibly caused by progressive physical inactivity, contribute to the construction of the pathophysiology of this disease, ...

Phase N/A

A Study of Experimental Medication BMS-986231 in Patients With Different Levels of Kidney Function

The purpose of this study is to investigate experimental medication BMS-986231 in patients with different levels of kidney function.

Phase

Exercise-based Cardiac Rehabilitation Program on Hospitalized Heart Failure Patients Submitted to Cardiac Transplantation

Objective: To evaluate the effects of an early-based cardiac rehabilitation program on the functional capacity, inspiratory muscular strength and clinical outcomes in hospitalized heart failure patients before and after heart transplantation. Method: 30 hospitalized heart failure patients awaiting cardiac transplantation will be selected and randomized in 2 groups: conventional group ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Evaluation of Asians With CRT for Heart Failure

Among patients undergoing CRT for severe heart failure according to indications stipulated in international Cardiology guidelines, baseline demographic data is collected. Age, gender, NYHA functional class, comorbidities, QRS width on ECG, presence of left bundle branch block pattern on ECG, presence of atrial fibrillation, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) on ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Real-time Intracardiac Pressure Measurements Using Subharmonic Ultrasound

This study will use contrast echocardiography to assess the accuracy of a new non-invasive imaging method for subharmonic aided pressure estimation (SHAPE) compared to simultaneously acquired intra-cardiac pressures measured invasively during cardiac catheterization. This study is designed to verify that contrast echocardiography using the SHAPE method, already proven in a ...
