BACKGROUND: Comorbidities are stressors to the body and have a negative impact on quality of life and sexual function. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of the coexistence of coronary heart disease and chronic musculoskeletal pain on sexual function and quality of life of patients undergoing an exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program. METHODS: This cross-sectional observational study included 105 patients...

Lee Anne Siegmund, Nancy M Albert, Mark S McClelland, James F Bena, Shannon L Morrison
BACKGROUND: Phase II cardiac rehabilitation reduces hospital readmissions and cardiovascular disease risk factors and improves functional capacity. Cardiovascular disease risk factors double with patients with metabolic syndrome, a population less likely to adhere to cardiac rehabilitation. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine relationships between cardiac rehabilitation uptake timing, demographic variables and functional capacity, and readmission in patients with metabolic syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Low sleep quality is common in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Positive effects of cardiac rehabilitation on patients treated for AF with ablation have been found, but whether cardiac rehabilitation affects sleep quality is unknown. The objectives of this study were to investigate (1) differences in sleep quality between cardiac rehabilitation and usual care groups and (2) whether other factors could affect sleep quality. METHODS: From the randomized CopenHeartRFA trial, 210 patients treated for AF with ablation were included...

Rodel V Bobadilla
BACKGROUND: After acute coronary syndrome, guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor for a period of 12 months for the prevention of secondary cardiovascular events. However, the risk of recurrent ischemic events can persist beyond 12 months, and there has been much debate regarding the benefits of prolonging dual antiplatelet therapy in certain patient populations. PURPOSE: The purpose of this review was to investigate the optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy in the post-acute coronary syndrome patient...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure follows a highly variable and difficult course. Patients face complex decisions, including treatment with implantable cardiac defibrillators, mechanical circulatory support, and heart transplantation. The course of decision-making across multiple treatments is unclear yet integral to providing informed and shared decision-making. Recognizing commonalities across treatment decisions could help nurses and physicians to identify opportunities to introduce discussions and support shared decision-making...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure prevalence continues to rise in the United States causing significant morbidity and mortality and costing billions in healthcare expenditures. Consensus guidelines updated in 2016 recommend an angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNi) as a therapeutic option in lieu of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker for the management of stage C heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). For chronic HFrEF patients with New York Heart Association class II or III symptoms tolerating an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor/angiotensin receptor blocker, a change in therapy to an ARNi is recommended to further reduce morbidity and mortality...

Leonie Klompstra, Tiny Jaarsma, Anna Strömberg
BACKGROUND: Motivation is necessary in patients with heart failure (HF) who are attempting to become more physically active but may not be sufficient to initiate physical activity. Self-efficacy might explain the relationship between motivation and physical activity. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the role of exercise self-efficacy in the relationship between exercise motivation and physical activity in patients with HF. METHODS: A total of 100 stable patients with HF (88% in New York Heart Association class II/III; mean age, 67 ± 13 years; 62% men) were studied...

BACKGROUND: Lifestyle physical activity (ie, moderate physical activity during routine daily activities most days of the week) may benefit human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive adults who are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to describe lifestyle physical activity patterns in HIV-positive adults and to examine the influence of lifestyle physical activity on markers of cardiovascular health. Our secondary objective was to compare these relationships between HIV-positive adults and well-matched HIV-uninfected adults...

BACKGROUND: Mortality rate is high for older women with heart failure (HF) who are discharged to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) after hospitalization, but little is known about their symptoms, nutritional factors, and pressure ulcer status and whether these variables predict the women's return to the community. OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study are to characterize symptoms (ie, dyspnea, cognitive dysfunction, depression, and pain) and nutritional and pressure ulcer status, evaluate relationships among symptoms, and examine predictors of return to the community among older women with HF admitted to SNFs...

BACKGROUND: Anxiety is the earliest psychological response to acute myocardial infarction. When anxiety persists or becomes severe, it has negative consequences including increased risk for in-hospital complications. Therefore, it is necessary to determine which groups of people are at risk for high anxiety after acute myocardial infarction. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether there is a difference in anxiety levels and rate of complications based on gender early after acute myocardial infarction...

Kelly L Wierenga
BACKGROUND: African American women with heart failure (HF) have stressors that negatively impact HF self-management adherence and heighten the occurrence of negative cardiac health events. Perceptions of illness coherence and controllability and emotion regulation are known to facilitate self-management in the face of stressors. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether difficulties with emotion regulation and negative perceptions of illness coherence and controllability are detrimental to adherence and increase negative cardiac health events in this patient population...

BACKGROUND: We conducted a secondary analysis to (1) compare changes in mood disorders and quality of life (QOL) among 4 groups of patients with heart failure in a home-based exercise program who had varying degrees of change in their exercise capacity and (2) determine whether there was an association between exercise capacity, mood disorders, and QOL. METHODS: Seventy-one patients were divided into 4 groups based on changes in exercise capacity from baseline to 6 months: group 1showed improvements of greater than 10% (n = 19), group 2 showed improvements of 10% or less (n = 16), group 3 showed reductions of 10% or less (n = 9), and group 4 showed reductions of greater than 10% (n = 27)...

BACKGROUND: Fatigue has been identified as a major symptom in heart transplant (HTx) patients; however, researchers have not examined the role of fatigue characteristics (ie, intensity, interference, and duration) in the quality of life (QOL) of HTx patients. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore differences in physical and mental aspects of QOL by patient characteristics, as well as the association between fatigue characteristics and QOL in HTx patients after considering other confounding factors (symptom distress and psychological distress)...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) has been increasing among Koreans, and middle-aged and older women are at risk of metabolic syndrome. Effective strategies to promote lifestyle modification need to be developed. OBJECTIVE: We examined the effects of a self-management program on improving the cardiovascular health status and promoting healthy behaviors among overweight or obese Korean women at risk of metabolic syndrome. METHODS: A pretest and posttest intervention design was used...

BACKGROUND: mHealth, or the use of mobile technology in healthcare, is becoming increasingly common. In heart failure (HF), mHealth has been associated with improved self-management and quality of life. However, it is known that older adults continue to lag behind their younger counterparts when it comes to mobile technology adoption. OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of this study was to examine factors that influence intention to use mHealth among older adults with HF...
