Did watching the Presidential address and the response last night spike your stress level? No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, exposure to the government shut-down, economic pressures, and legislative uncertainty can elevate your stress level. In my research on job stress, uncertainty was the second most common source of stress (following overwhelm). Why should we be concerned about the stress caused by uncertainty? Stress of any kind causes a natural physical reaction. We can’t alleviate all stress, and we wouldn’t want to even if we could. Some stress is natural and necessary; it is what gives...

Both diseases share associated risk factors – hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea, obesity and smoking. Moreover, inflammation plays a causative role in both diseases. The prevalence of CAD in patients with AF is from 17% to 46.5% while the prevalence of AF among pati...

By ANISH KOKA, MD I’m sitting amidst a number of cardiologists to go over the most recent trials presented at the interventional cardiology conference in Denver.  The cardiology fellow presenting goes quickly through the hors de oeuvres until finally getting to the main course – ORBITA. ORBITA sought to test the very foundations interventional cardiology was built on – the simple idea that opening a stenosed coronary artery was good for patients.  The trial was a double blind randomized control trial of patients with tightly stenosed arteries who either had a stent placed or had a sham procedure...

Abstract Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cardiovascular disease while atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. Both diseases share associated risk factors - hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea, obesity and smoking. Moreover, inflammation plays a causative role in both diseases. The prevalence of CAD in patients with AF is from 17% to 46.5% while the prevalence of AF among patients with CAD is low and it is estimated from 0.2% to 5%. AF is a well-established factor of poor short- and long-term prognosis in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and is associ...

Conclusion: There were greater procedural complications when performed post-call compared to no post-call; however, when adjusting for significant baseline variables, there was no significant difference seen between groups. Taking into consideration factors that contributed to procedural complications most likely will improve patient outcomes.

I’m not interested in lengthening your lifespan. I want to increase your “health span”… the length of time you feel energized and ready to take on the world.

That’s why it’s called the “happy hormone.” What Does Serotonin Levels Affect? Serotonin does a lot more than keep you in a good mood.
