The purpose of this secondary analysis was to examine heart failure (HF) patient’s symptoms of fatigue, dyspnea and mood disturbance in response to a 24 week exercise training intervention. Social Learning Theory was used to guide the conceptual framework for the randomized controlled trial from which this data was obtained. Sixteen subjects (14 males and 2 females) with an average age of 66.9 years were enrolled in the intervention group receiving the exercise training. Sixty-nine percent had ischemic HF and New York Heart Association (NYHA) classifications were II (19%), III (69%) an IV (12%). Mean ejection fraction (EF) was 28.3% (SD=7.0) and body mass index (BMI) ranged from 20.0 to 41.5 (M=27.7, SD=5.8). Measurements were completed at baseline, 12 and 24 weeks for fatigue (Piper Fatigue Scale), dyspnea (Baseline Dyspnea Index) and mood disturbance (Profile of Mood States [POMS]). Fatigue significantly decreased over time [F (2,20)=3.89, p < .05] while a non-significant decrease in dyspnea occurred over time [F (2,20)=2.33, p > .05]. Total mood disturbance significantly improved over time [F (2,16)=4.47, p < .05]. Symptoms reported by patients over time were not significantly correlated with either EF or NYHA classification. BMI was significantly correlated with fatigue (t=-.57, p < .05) and depression-dejection on the POMS (t=-.56, p <.05), indicating less fatigue and depression-dejection for patients with increased BMI. Age was not significantly related to fatigue or dyspnea symptoms over time, however it was significantly correlated with mood disturbance. Older patients had significantly greater total mood disturbance, tension-anxiety, depression-dejection, and confusion-bewilderment on the POMS (p < .05). These findings provide support for the beneficial effects of exercise training on symptoms of fatigue, dyspnea, and mood disturbance in HF patients. AN: MN030175
