Role of physical training in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.


About 50% or more of heart failure (HF) patients living in the community have preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF), and the proportion is higher among women and the very elderly. A cardinal feature of HFpEF is reduced aerobic capacity, measured objectively as peak exercise pulmonary oxygen uptake (peak VO(2)), that results in decreased… (More)
