Dr Haykowski has published in the journal Heart Failure Clinics: The primary chronic symptom in patients with diastolic heart failure, even when well compensated, is severe exercise intolerance, measured objectively as decreased peak oxygen uptake (peak Vo2).
Recent advances in the pathophysiology of exercise intolerance suggest that noncardiac peripheral factors contribute to the reduced peak Vo2, and are the major contributor to its improvement after supervised endurance exercise training.
Alberta HEART investigators have published in PLoS One on potential components driving diastolic heart failure.
