AFib Decision-Making Education
Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is found in people with an irregular heartbeat. The condition causes a higher risk of stroke. There are choices people make with their doctor to address the issue. Research is needed to see if using educational websites helps patients make the best decision with their doctors. The information we learn will aid future patients.
Health and Safety Consequences of Poor Sleep Health
Sleep is a key factor affecting your overall health. We want to investigate if altering your nightly sleep duration impacts your bodys metabolism (how you metabolize food). We will also look at your physical activity, food intake, and cognition during the study. (IRB#: IRB_00133959)
Improving Congenital Heart Disease Care for Adolescents and Young Adults
Congenital Heart disease (CHD) is one of the most common birth defects with most major effects diagnosed in infancy. Because there is no cure for CHD it is a lifelong chronic illness. Research is needed to understand the needs of people with CHD as they transition from child to adulthood. This information will improve the care and quality of life for people with CHD. (IRB#: IRB_00149991)
Improving MRI for People with Heart Disease
People with heart disease may need an imagining scan known as an MRI. Research is needed to improve MRI methods used for finding heart problems and better determining what is normal and what is a disease. These include myocardial fibrosis. The thickening of tissue in heart muscles. The information we gain may aid future patients. (IRB#: IRB_00154019)
Improving your blood pressure through culinary medicine
High blood pressure is a silent disease that can have devastating consequences. Keeping your blood pressure under control will reduce your risk of developing heart disease, strokes, and even dementia. This study is designed to help you accurately detect if you have high blood pressure, and then get you the treatment you need to keep it under control. In the intervention arm, you will get to participate in a series of cooking classes and learn how to cook foods which will improve your blood pressure without the use of medications. We will discuss components of the DASH diet and teach key culinary skills to help you feel confident preparing and eating more healthful food. If you choose to participate, you will be asked to attend all physician visits, nurse visits, and shared medical visits. You will also be asked to track your blood pressure at home and report it every few weeks to few months. You will be asked to get labs, and weight periodically as well to track your health.

Physical Therapist 6 Minute Walk Test for Adults
Physical therapists that provide rehabilitation services to adults often use a test called the 6 Minute Walk Test (6MWT) to track a patients progress and set goals for their walking. Currently, a 6 minute 100 feet walk test is used. However, because 100 feet takes up a lot of space, using this test is not always easy in a rehabilitation clinic or a patients home. Research is needed to learn how far adults typically walk on a 39 feet pathway in 6 minutes. This information will improve the ability for physical therapists to track progress and design treatment plans for people with a variety of health conditions. (IRB#: IRB_00150989)
Selexipag: A Drug to Study for Children and Adolescences with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in the lungs and heart. Selexipag is an approved drug for adults with PAH. Research is needed to know if the drug is safe and effective for children and adolescents with PAH. The information we learn may aid future patients. (IRB#: IRB_00135477)
You may decide to volunteer. You are free to decide to join this research or not to join this research. You may be asked to take part in this research if your doctor feels that you may be a good candidate to be treated with the TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved this TREO medical device to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) for endovascular (EVAR) (not open) surgeries.
The purpose of this research is to help determine the long-term performance of the TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft as a treatment for patients with AAA. After your EVAR repair with the TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft, you will return to your doctor for 1-month and 12-month follow-up visits. Following the 12-month follow-up, you will return once a year for 5 years. Patients who enroll will do 8 visits in total over 5 years.
There is no randomization or blinding the treatment. All eligible patients who can have EVAR surgery and TREO Abdominal Stent-Graft to treat AAA are welcome to join. (IRB#: IRB_00138928)
University of Utah Long Covid Registry
Researchers at the University of Utah have established a registry to follow individuals who are experiencing prolonged symptoms after COVID-19 infection. We are interested in following people with "Long Covid" using in depth health surveys and optional blood draws to better understand this condition with the goal of ultimately developing clinical management strategies.

VenoValve: An Investigational Device for Patients with CVI
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a debilitating condition that involves leg pain, leg swelling, enlarged veins, skin discoloration, and open sores on the lower legs. VenoValve® is an investigational device that may resolve severe CVI symptoms. Scientists and doctors do not know the safety and effectiveness of this device. Research is needed to learn if it may be approved and used to improve the health of CVI patients.
