Cardiac rehabilitation in patients with cardiovascular disease leads various hemodynamic parameters obtained using simple non-invasive tests to their appropriate levels
In conclusion, CR may lead various hemodynamic parameters obtained using simple non-invasive tests to their appropriate levels.
CONCLUSIONS: The level of patient satisfaction, duration of hospitalisation and the severity of stroke were found to be the three important factors associated with SS-QOL at hospital discharge, indicating doctors might assist patients adjust to the consequences of stroke and improve the QOL of subacute stroke.

New research, which was presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual conference, has found that moderate drinking is linked to a longer life. Drinking about two glasses of wine or beer a day was linked to an 18% drop in a person’s risk of early death—an even stronger effect than the life-preserving practice of exercise, according to the researchers. The results came from the 90+ Study, a research project out of the University of California Irvine’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders that examines the habits of people who live to at least 90. ...

VASCULAR dementia is a common from of dementia which is caused by an impaired supply of blood to the brain and may be caused by a series of small strokes. Symptoms tend to get worse over time - what is the life expectancy?
Summary Left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) is a ratio that is deemed to accurately normalize stroke volume (SV) to end‐diastolic volume (EDV). Ratios are now well‐recognized for not normalizing the numerator, in this case SV, consistently for the denominator, EDV. We aimed to provide the first allometric‐based scrutiny of the conventional assumptions that underpin the EF ratio. We allometrically modelled untransformed SV and EDV measurements from 112 preclinical heart failure patients in the Multi‐Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), and 864 chronic heart failure patients in the Treatment of Preserved Cardi...
Cardiovascular disease, which includes heart disease and stroke, is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for one out of every three deaths. According to the American Heart Association, there are more than 800,000 cardiovascular disease deaths in the United States each year and 92 million Americans are living with at least one form of cardiovascular disease or the after effects of a stroke.
HIGH blood pressure rarely has visible symptoms, but if it ’s left untreated it can cause increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. The best way to reduce high blood pressure is to make healthy lifestyle changes - adding avocado into your diet can help lower your reading.
