The health benefits of physical activity have been widely recognized, yet there is limited information on associations between accelerometer-related parameters and established patient-re-ported health status. This study investigated the association between the waist-worn accelerometer measurements, cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX), and results of the Kansas City Cardiomy-opathy Questionnaire (KCCQ) in heart failure (HF) patients hospitalized for acute decompensation. A total of 31 patients were enrolled and wore a validated three-axis accelerometer for 2 weeks and completed the short version of the KCCQ after removing the device. Daily step counts, exercise time (metabolic equivalents × hours), and %sedentary time (sedentary time/device-equipped time) were measured. Among the measured parameters, the best correlation was observed between %seden-tary time and the KCCQ overall and clinical summary scores (r = −0.65 and −0.65, each p < 0.001). All of the individual domains of the KCCQ (physical limitation, symptom frequency, and quality of life), with the exception of the social limitation domain, showed moderate correlations with %sed-entary time. Finally, oxygen consumption assessed by CPX demonstrated only weak associations with the accelerometer-measured parameters. An accelerometer could complement the KCCQ results in accurately assessing the physical activity in HF patients immediately after hospitalization, albeit its correlation with CPX was at most moderate.
