Physical Activity for Patients with Heart Failure

Summarize evidence and synthesize statements regarding physical activity for patients with heart failure.

Suppose the PICOT question for the study is as follows:

  • In patients with heart failure, how three-time does a week of physical activity compared with no physical activity decrease the incidence of hospitalization over three months?
  • Read and review “Cardiac Rehabilitation Participation Rates and Outcomes for Patients With Heart Failure” by JL Rengo.
  • Describe the study design, number, and description of participants, the measurement method, instrument, or tool.
  • How was the reliability & validity of the instrument attained? Discuss the strengths and limitations of the study.
