Intrinsic changes in skeletal muscle are being increasingly suspected as part of the underlying cause of exercise intolerance in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). The objective of the present study was to determine whether differences existed between CHF patients and age-matched healthy controls in the concentration of skeletal muscle Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase (adenosine triphosphatase), a cation pump that functions to restore Na(+)-K(+) gradients and protect membrane excitability. Moreover… CONTINUE READING
