Resistance Training in HFpEF
Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.

About this study
The objective of this proposal is to determine the effect of resistance exercise training on locomotor muscle function, exercise capacity, exertional symptoms, and quality of life in HF patients with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
All patients will be managed by their primary care physician or cardiologist with additional review and oversight by Dr. Borlaug (Co-Investigator) prior to enrollment to ensure adequacy of inclusion and exclusion criteria and that participation in exercise testing and resistance exercise training is safe.
- Clinical diagnosis of HFpEF.
- Patients 18-80 yrs old with a history stable (no medication changes in past 6 weeks (w/duration of diagnosis >6 months).
- New York Heart Association class I-III.
- Ejection fraction ≥40%.
- Current non-smokers with <15 pack year history.
- Non-pregnant women, and individuals who are able to exercise (i.e. without orthopedic limitations or neuromuscular disorders).
- Patient refusal to participate.
- Significant orthopedic or neuromuscular limitations
- Significant cognitive impairment
- Hemoglobin < 7.0 g/d.
