    Aim: To assess the influence of atrial fibrillation on mortality in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) in a prospective study compared to heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFREF). We have hypothesized that atrial fibrillation decreases survival in HFPEF. Patients...

    Objectives: Previous research suggests that blood-thinning treatment for patients with atrial fibrillation as well as treatment for patients with heart failure is not adequate among the elderly. We tested this among long-term patients in nursing homes. Methods: Information about the patients (n...

    Heart Rate Variability (HRV) series exhibit long memory and time-varying conditional variance. This work considers the Fractionally Integrated AutoRegressive Moving Average (ARFIMA) models with Generalized AutoRegressive Conditional Heteroscedastic (GARCH) errors. ARFIMA-GARCH models may be used...

    Background and Aim: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), based on broad QRS duration has proved successful for patients in late stage heart failure (HF), however almost 30% do not respond. Standard segmental Doppler echocardiographic measures of ventricular dyssynchrony are controversial in...
