Depression and Quality of Life in Chronic Heart Failure Patients and the Caregivers
Depression and Quality of Life in Chronic Heart Failure Patients and the Caregivers

Anxiety and depression are often present in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). This study aimed to evaluate the influence of anxiety and depression on the physical function, disability, and quality of life (QOL) in CHF. This study examined the effects of 8-week home-based exercise on these parameters, and investigated the correlations between these outcome changes.
