Smart Heart Study: Cognitive Benefits of Cardiac Rehabilitation

2014-08-27 03:44:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The proposed study will be the first to examine whether changes in blood flow patterns within the brain account for the possible cognitive benefits of CR. A clearer understanding of this possibility may provide key insight into the way CVD affects the brain, help identify effective treatments, help a greater number of patients return to work, and improve quality of life.

Description

Based on recent patient referrals, we expect that 30 participants will subsequently enroll in CR and 30 will not. CR patients will complete standardized neuropsychological tests (45-60 minutes) and Transcranial Doppler (30-40 minutes) during their first and last week in the CR program. Patients who do not enroll in CR will undergo testing at similar intervals to serve as a matched control group. Standard medical records will be collected for participants in both groups to obtain demographic and medical information. CR-specific medical records will also be collected to obtain information about possible mechanisms for cognitive benefits (e.g. improved stress test performance, reduced blood pressure, etc.). All participants will be compensated for their time.
