Impact of Hemodynamic Ramp Test-Guided HVAD RPM and Medication Adjustments on Exercise Tolerance and Quality of Life
Sorry, not currently recruiting here
The main purpose of this study is to compare Echo-guided testing to the Hemodynamic-Echo Ramp Tests to determine which method of testing provides better information for adjusting pump speed and medical treatment for Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) patients. Better adjustments may provide better quality of life, exercise tolerance and reduced unwanted cardiac events over a 6-month period.
