Symptom-limited, laboratory-based exercise tests are often used to define prognosis in patients with chronic heart failure, but they do not relate to measures of normal daily activity. Invasive measures of central hemodynamics similarly relate poorly to outcome. Pedometer scores of weekly walking are markedly reduced in patients with heart failure, but… (More)
