Acupuncture on Cardiac and Autonomic Function in Human Heart Failure

Study:

Acupuncture on Cardiac and Autonomic Function in Human Heart Failure

Rationale:

n/a

Purpose:

Acupuncture treatment may improve the cardiac function and the quality of life in heart failure patients. These effects may be related to the inhibition of sympathetic activity and/or increased vagal function. The suppression of inflammatory reaction with acupuncture treatment may also be associated with these outcomes. Specific aims include: 1. To evaluate the effect of acupuncture treatment on human cardiac sympathetic/vagal activity 2. To evaluate the effect of acupuncture treatment on cardiac function and functional capacity 3. To evaluate the general health score of the quality-of-life with acupuncture treatment 4. To explore the mechanism of acupuncture treatment on inflammation and nitrative stress in heart failure patients.
