The goal of this study was to evaluate heart rate recovery (HRR) as a useful variable in assessing risk of death in heart failure(HF) patients and compare it with other prognostic indicators. Methods: Retrospective data were analyzed in 712 HF patients who underwent echocardiography and exercise testing. Results: Patients were divided into 3 groups according to their HRR: group 1 (HRR ≤ 4 bpm), group 2 (5 ≤ HRR ≤ 9 bpm), and group 3 (HRR ≤ 10). Group 1 had the highest mortality in both, the long and short term. HRR was independently predictive of mortality after adjusting for age, gender, NYHA class, LVEF and BMI. Conclusions: HRR might be used as an additional prognostic indicator.
