Abstract :

Aim: Home-based exercise program is extended in application to heart failure patients and used to replace the hospital-based exercise. Little is known about the effectiveness on clinical practice in Taiwan. The aim of this study was to systematically review and to investigate the effectiveness of home-based exercise interventions for heart failure patients. Methods: Randomized controlled trials in MEDLINE, PubMed, CINAHL, Embase and CEPS were reviewed using the keywords including home-based exercise and heart failure. Types of outcome were not restricted. The Jadad scale appraised the quality of identified studies. Results: Nine studies met the inclusion criteria. There were significant improvement in participants├ó┬?┬? physical capacity, depression mood and quality of life. Conclusion: Home-based exercise program (walking combined resistance training; at least three times per week; duration 12 weeks) supervised with telephone or home visit is important for safety and effectiveness, as well as adherence in heart failure patients.
