Abstract

This report will review the abnormalities of the peripheral circulation and skeletal muscle which are part of the heart failure syndrome and can limit exercise tolerance; introduce trials that have shown benefits of exercise training in a variety of heart failure patients; suggest strategies for recommending activity training in patients with heart failure. Finally, this report will identify areas where data are missing and where trials are currently being undertaken.
