Exercise in Patients With a Biventricular Pacemaker
Effects of an Exercise Program on the Tendance to Severe Arrhythmias in Patients With Severely Impaired Left Ventricular Function and Cardial Re-synchronisation Therapy

The investigators will evaluate the effects of an exercise program (walking on a treadmill) on the physical performance, the cardiorespiratory function, the proclivity to heart arrhythmias and the quality of life of patients with severely impaired left ventricular function and a bi-ventricular resynchronization pacemaker.

Phase 2
Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Left Ventricular Failure
Other: Endurance exercise
The patients carry out an exercise program (walking on a treadmill) three times weekly for 12 weeks at a speed corresponding with an intensity of 70% of VO2max.
