Abstract

An effective approach for determining the clinical classification of heart failure (HF) patients is to estimate cardiac hemodynamics during exercise. This approach is strengthened further when measurements including cardiac power are used to describe cardiac hemodynamics. We hypothesize that cardiac power quantifies the hemodynamic and pressure-generating capability of the heart, relating with exercise tolerance better than traditional measurements in HF.
