Authors: Jiang Y, Tan HC, Tam WWS, Lim TW, Wang W Abstract Previous studies had suggested that Omega-3 fatty acids have pleiotropic effects and favourable safety profile, which may potentially increase the efficacy of antiarrhythmic drugs in suppressing atrial arrhythmias through combination therapy. This meta-analysis aimed to determine the effectiveness of using Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids as a sole anti-arrhythmic agent or as an adjunct to existing pharmacological therapies in preventing atrial fibrillation recurrence. Randomized controlled trials published in English, from inception to December 2016, we...

In conclusion, following large insulin overdoses, in‐hospital admission and treatment with IV glucose may be needed for up to a week. Monitoring of electrolytes and hepatic and cardiac functions seems important. Several experimental treatment options may be considered in addition to glucose administration. With appropriate pre‐ and in‐hospital treatment, cases with severe hypoglycaemia and neurologic complications may have a favourable outcome.

CONCLUSIONS: We report that CSFP is associated with J-wave and slurring ERPs. However, the clinical significance of these changes needs to be clarified. PMID: 29460660 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract In Brazil, the scorpion species responsible for most severe incidents belong to the Tityus genus and, among this group, T. serrulatus, T. bahiensis, T. stigmurus and T. obscurus are the most dangerous ones. Other species such as T. metuendus, T. silvestres, T. brazilae, T. confluens, T. costatus, T. fasciolatus and T. neglectus are also found in the country, but the incidence and severity of accidents caused by them are lower. The main effects caused by scorpion venoms - such as myocardial damage, cardiac arrhythmias, pulmonary edema and shock - are mainly due to the release of mediators from the autonomic nervous...

Alzheimer ’s is the number one mental disorder diagnosed in the elderly with over 5.4 million people afflicted in 2016. According to Maplewood's records 43% of patients have dementia, 45% have depression and 21% have both. These two diagnoses have symptoms of sleep disturbances, agitated behavior and sadnes s which can increase the risk for falls. Often medications given to treat depression can lead to somnolence, decreased appetite, constipation, confusion or possible arrhythmia. Circadian rhythms are controlled in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) located in the hypothalamus by a monosynaptic pathway with the retin...

CONCLUSIONS: PWD value was elevated in asthmatic compared to the control group. The CQTD was not statistically significant between the groups. These results indicate that the risk of developing AF in asthmatic patients might be higher than in the normal population. Ventricular arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death risk may not be high in asthmatic patients. PMID: 29461607 [PubMed - in process]

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT02442206. Findings Between May 18, 2015, and April 20, 2017, we randomly assigned 62 eligible participants to treatment; 30 to indacaterol–glycopyrronium followed by placebo and 32 to placebo followed by indacaterol–glycopyrronium. The 62 randomly assigned patients were included in the intent-to-treat analysis. There were two protocol violations and therefore 60 were included in the per-protocol analysis. 57 patients completed both treatment periods. After indacaterol–glycopyrronium treatment, left-ventricular end-diastolic volume increased from ...
