Opportunity details

Help us design our heart failure study!

Seeking patients with heart failure (any type) to review our study & give their thoughts

Link to organisation:

Full description:

We are designing a study, to test whether a small gland in the neck (the carotid body), is overactive in different groups of heart failure patients.

We hope to block this gland & see if this helps patients to be able exercise.

We would love for you to read our plans & give your opinions on whether it’s something that patients with heart failure could do & if our info makes sense.

All work is done from home at your own pace. Prepaid envelopes for return of documents will be provided.
