Heart failure (HF) affects 82% of adults 65 years of age or older and is the most common hospital discharge diagnosis in this age. In spite of high costs of care for persons with HF, the effects of HF on dependency and limitations in daily activities leading to disability are substantial. Nagi’s (1991) model of disability describes the sequential effects of factors contributing to disability. Using Nagi’s model, pathology (comorbidity, etiology of HF, & hospitalizations) directly affects functional impairments that are structural abnormalities of specific body systems (aerobic capacity, heart function, fatigue, dyspnea, muscle strength, & balance). This impairment leads to functional limitations that are restrictions in physical performance (activity intolerance & gait) and, which subsequently lead to disability (restrictions, modification, & perceived efforts in ADLs). Also included are Intra-individual (depression, perception) & extra-individual (social support) factors added by the Institute of Medicine. A cross-sectional design using a convenience sample of 143 adults over 21 years of age who were chronic HF& NYHA Functional Class II through IV. They must be cognitively intact, and able to speak and read English. Recruitment will be in a Heart Failure Clinic of an academic medical center. Path analysis will be used to test Nagi’s model of disability. Factors contributing to disability identified from the study will guide nursing assessment and interventions to reduce disability.
