Abstract

The physiopathology of the heart failure involves compensatory mechanisms as exacerbated neurohormonal activity, endothelial dysfunction and consequently the muscle disability and exercise intolerance. The interval exercise training has been proposed as one efficient method to heart failure patients. It seems that the main mechanism involved in the benefit of the interval exercise training is the "shear stress". AIM: To study the interval exercise training versus the continuous exercise training in the sympathetic activity and in the peripheral muscle perfusion in heart failure patients. Moreover, we will evaluate the muscle apoptosis, levels of antioxidants enzymes, quality of life and exercise capacity. METODOLOGY: Will be selected 27 patients (male and female) with age between 40 and 60 years, left ventricular ejection fraction less than 40% and functional class I, II and III. These patients will be randomized into three groups: Interval (GI), continuous (GC) and control (GE). All patients will be evaluated with microneurography, peripheral muscle perfusion, muscle biopsy, cardiopulmonary exercise test and quality of life before and after end of the period of 02 (two) months. This way, we expect evaluate the impact of the interval exercise training versus continuous exercise training in the sympathetic activity and in the peripheral muscle perfusion in heart failure patients.
