The study analysed data from over 600 male patients, aged 67-71 years, with heart failure from six countries. During the research, the “Montreal Cognitive Assessment” test was used to measure cognitive function and exercise capacity was measured with a six-minute walk test.

The results showed the younger and better educated heart failure patients with better fitness were significantly less likely to have cognitive impairment.

Two-thirds of the patients with heart failure had cognitive problems, showed the study, presented at the EuroHeartCare 2019, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), held in Milan, Italy, from May 2 to May 4.
