Poster summary

Impaired vasomotor control in chronic heart failure (CHF) limits the delivery of O2 to skeletal muscle during exercise. Previous results demonstrate significant increases in skeletal muscle blood flow (Q) during exercise with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) supplementation via fish oil (FO) versus safflower oil (SO) in healthy rats. Whether PUFA supplementation with FO will improve vasomotor control in CHF and skeletal muscle Q during exercise remains to be determined.
