Exercise Training Effect on Quality of Life and Exercise Capacity in Patients With Heart Failure and Preserved Ejection Fraction: A Pilot Study

The purpose of this is to develop and implement a pilot study that will demonstrate the

outcomes on the effect of exercise training on quality of life (QOL) and exercise capacity
in patients with a diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF).

initiatives are based on this age group and HF development increases with aging).

- Diagnosis of HFPEF stable NYHA Stage II- III with an EF of ≥ 45%

- Stabilized on cardiac medications and post hospitalization > 4 weeks

- Ability to participate in exercise testing and training.

- Referral from Cardiologist or primary care physician.
