BOSTON (CBS) — The number of women who suffer from a heart attack while pregnant or soon after giving birth is on the rise. In fact, according to researchers at the NYU School of Medicine, the risk has gone up by 25-percent between 2002 to 2014. The overall risk of having a heart attack while pregnant is still very low, but after looking at more than 49-million births, researchers found that risk continues to climb. The cause is not completely clear but researchers believe several factors may contribute. Women are having children when they’re older. More women of reproductive age are obese. More have diabetes. ...

The number of women who have a heart attack during pregnancy, labor or in the weeks following birth appears to be rising. In a new study, published Wednesday in the journal Mayo Clinical Proceedings, researchers looked at more than 49 million births.Among the women who gave birth, 1,061 had a heart attack during their labor and delivery; 922 had heart attacks during their pregnancy, and 2,390 women had heart attacks after they gave birth. Overall, the risk of having a heart attack was relatively low. But the risk increased 25% from 2002 to 2014, the researchers found, which they call a concerning rise. Among women who had...

This study aims to determine methodological variations in the event simulation approaches of published health economic decision models, in the field of obesity, and to investigate whether their predictiveness and validity were investigated via external event validation techniques, which investigate how well the model reproduces reality. Areas covered: A systematic review identified a total of 87 relevant papers, of which 72 that simulated obesity-associated events were included. Most frequently simulated events were coronary heart disease (≈83%), type 2 diabetes (≈74%), and stroke (≈66%). Only for ten pub...

Authors: Bronstein JM, Wingate MS, Brisendine AE Abstract The portion of newborns delivered before term is considerably higher in the United States than in other developed countries. We compare the array of risk exposures and protective factors common to women across national settings, using national, regional, and international databases, review articles, and research reports. We find that U.S. women have higher rates of obesity, heart disease, and poor health status than women in other countries. This is in part because more U.S. women are exposed to the stresses of racism and income disparity than women in other...

There’s no doubt that kids need more sleep than adults. Their growing bodies and brains burn through a lot of energy, and adequate rest and recovery are essential for proper development. That’s why the National Sleep Foundation recommends that teens get eight to ten hours of sleep a night, while younger kids require more. But what about adults? It’s common for people to sleep fewer hours in middle age than during their 20s or 30s—and to report feeling fine. But does a person’s sleep requirements diminish with age? “No,” says Dr. Leila Kheirandish-Gozal, director of clinical sleep r...

The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of various ultrasound frequency-time combinations on quality characteristics of potato strips during deep-fat frying. Results indicated that the potato strips subjected to ultrasonic waves at the frequency of 40 kHz for 30 min, exhibited the highest moisture diffusivity, resulting in the highest reduction in oil uptake (23.18%) among all the samples. Additionally, the ultrasound combined frequencies of 28 kHz (for 20 min) and 40 kHz (for 10 min) showed the best performance in reducing the shrinkage of fried products. Moreover, ultrasound frequency of ...

Publication date: September 2018Source: Clinica Chimica Acta, Volume 484Author(s): Gjin NdrepepaAbstractUric acid (UA) is an end product of purine metabolism in humans and great apes. UA acts as an antioxidant and it accounts for 50% of the total antioxidant capacity of biological fluids in humans. When present in cytoplasm of the cells or in acidic/hydrophobic milieu in atherosclerotic plaques, UA converts into a pro-oxidant agent and promotes oxidative stress and through this mechanism participates in the pathophysiology of human disease including cardiovascular disease (CVD). Most epidemiological studies but not all of ...
