Summary

This study is enrolling participants scheduled to have a cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) implanted to treat their heart failure, a condition where the heart muscle is weakened and cannot pump blood effectively. Participants also need to have a history of atrial fibrillation (AF), a condition in which the top chambers of the heart beat irregularly. A CRT-D device works by placing wires called leads in the heart that receive electrical signals programmed to coordinate or synchronize the heartbeat to help pump blood more effectively. The purpose of this study is to collect follow up data for a year post implant. Study procedures include completing questionnaires, six minute walk test and physical assessments. Participation in this study will include 4-5 visits over the course of about one year.
