Preliminary evidence suggests that poor patient-reported quality of life (QoL) predicts mortality on the short term in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). It is unclear if this association persists on the long term. We evaluated whether patient-reported QoL at the time of implantation predicts mortality and ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VTa's) during 7 years’ follow-up in patients with an ICD. A consecutive cohort of patients (80% men; mean [SD] age = 58 [12]) implante...

PURPOSE: Today, catheter ablation is a widely used treatment for atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial flutter (AFL). Knowledge on long-term patient-reported outcomes and readmissions is lacking and is warranted to plan optimal follow-up care. Objectives were to describe patient-reported outcomes including perceived health, quality of life, anxiety, depression, and physical activity compared with an age- and sex-matched reference population without longstanding disease; readmissions and mortality;...

Background: Higher levels of patient activation for self-managing health are associated with positive clinical and health care utilization outcomes. Identifying a patient's activation level can guide clinicians to tailor interventions to improve their health. Effective self-management of atrial fibrillation (AF) requires patient activation to participate in treatment decisions, prevent complications, and manage risk factors. Yet, little is known about activation in patients with AF. The purpose ...

Background:Implantable cardioverter–defibrillator (ICD) therapy significantly improves the survival of patients who are at high risk for sudden cardiac death. However, it is unclear whether this survival is accompanied by impairment on quality of life (QoL).Objectives:This systematic review sought to describe whether ICD therapy, as compared with standard treatment, can have an impact on QoL outcomes.Methods:Extensive literature searches were carried out in PubMed, EMBASE, LILACS and Cochrane Li...

Background:Increased physical capacity after comprehensive rehabilitation in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing ablation has been found in the CopenHeartRFA trial. The purpose of this study was to investigate: (a) sex differences in health status, psychological distress and quality of life, (b) sex differences in rehabilitation outcomes and (c) predictors of effect of rehabilitation.Methods:We conducted an exploratory analysis of data from the randomized CopenHeartRFA trial, where...

Purpose ICDs can improve survival in at-risk patients but no consensus exists with respect to their impact on health-related quality of life (QOL). Moreover, the data are unclear on QOL benefits in specific patient subgroups. We sought to analyze, in the INTRINSIC RV ICD trial population, health-related QOL longitudinally following ICD implant and consider impact of age, gender, and ICD shocks on QOL by employing a global measure of health-related QOL.

Abstract Objective To describe: (i) differences in patient reported physical and mental health outcomes at hospital discharge between a) cardiac diagnostic groups and b) cardiac patients and a national representative reference population and to describe (ii) in-hospital predicting factors for patient reported outcomes. Methods A national cross-sectional survey combined with national register data. From April 2013 to April 2014 all patients (n = 34,564) discharged or transferred from one of five ...

Background Patients with postural tachycardia syndrome often appear depressive and report diminished quality of life (QOL). In the current study, we first evaluated if the maximal heart rate (HR) increment after standing is associated with the clinical symptoms in patients with excessive orthostatic tachycardia (OT). Next, we investigated the correlations among the symptoms of orthostatic intolerance (OI), depression, and health-related QOL in these patients. Finally we assessed if patients with...

Background:In 2005, the UK Department of Health recommended that a new role, the arrhythmia care coordinator (ACC), be created to guide patients through the diagnosis and treatment for arrhythmia. The belief was that this would improve the efficiency of care and improve their quality of life. The British Heart Foundation provided funding for 32 such posts, all of which were filled by arrhythmia specialist nurses, and commissioned an evaluation of the new service to assess its impact on patients....

Abstract Background Although atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common abnormal heart rhythm in men and women, there are gender differences. Mortality for women with AF can be 2.5 times greater than for men. AF risk among women is also greater than in men when patients have additional conditions. Women are more likely to experience longer symptomatic episodes, more recurrences, and higher ventricular rates during AF. We sought to explore presentation, comorbidities, treatment, and quality-of-l...
