Biomarkers May Separately Predict New Preserved- and Low-LVEF HF Biomarkers May Separately Predict New Preserved- and Low-LVEF HF

Two types of heart failure, two ways to predict its onset: The different biomarker arrays for each HF type seem to reflect poorly understood differences in underlying causes.Medscape Medical News

Authors: Xu Z, Chen L, Jin S, Yang B, Chen X, Wu Z Abstract Palliative care might be beneficial to heart failure. However, the results remain controversial. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the effect of palliative care on heart failure.PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, EBSCO, and Cochrane library databases were systematically searched. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the effect of palliative care versus usual care on heart failure were included. Two investigators independently searched articles, extracted data, and assessed the quality of included studies. The primary outco...

Ischemia-reperfusion injury is associated with serious clinical manifestations, including myocardial hibernation, acute heart failure, cerebral dysfunction, gastrointestinal dysfunction, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Ischemia-reperfusion injury is a critical medical condition that poses an important therapeutic challenge for physicians. In this review article, we present recent advances focusing on the basic pathophysiology of ischemia-reperfusion injury, especially the involvement of reactive oxygen species and cell death pathways. The involvement of the NADPH oxidase sy...

Conclusion: UCP3 protein was involved in the incidence of high-salt induced hypertension and the progression of cardiac dysfunction in the early stages of heart failure. UCP3 ablation exacerbated high-salt-induced cardiac hypertrophy and cardiac dysfunction.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;46:1683 –1692

Publication date: Available online 24 April 2018 Source:Pharmacology & Therapeutics Author(s): Joachim Alexandre, Javid Moslehi, Kevin R. Bersell, Christian Funck-Brentano, Dan M. Roden, Joe-Elie Salem Significant advances in cancer treatment have resulted in decreased cancer related mortality for many malignancies with some cancer types now considered chronic diseases. Despite these improvements, there is increasing recognition that many cancer patients or cancer survivors can develop cardiovascular diseases, either due to the cancer itself or as a result of anticancer therapy. Much attention has focused on heart fai...

Conclusions: We developed ComprehENotes, an instrument for assessing EHR note comprehension from existing EHR notes, gathered responses using crowdsourcing, and used IRT to analyze those responses, thus resulting in a set of questions to measure EHR note comprehension. Crowdsourced responses from Amazon Mechanical Turk can be used to estimate item parameters and select a subset of items for inclusion in the test set using IRT. The final set of questions is the first test of EHR note comprehension.

In this study, we developed a polyimide based 2D cuff electrode to wrap around on the vagus nerve. Thanks to the tiny size and bendable protruding structure of the contact tips of the device, the electrode sites are able to flexibly bend to touch the nerve, selectively record and stimulate the vagus nerve. Gold, platinum and platinum black materials were chosen to compose the electrodes for nerve stimulation and recording, respectively. Since the platinum black has ~30 times larger charge delivery capacity (CDC) than gold, Pt black electrode is used for nerve stimulation. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and cycl...

H Suresh, BS Arun, V Moger, PB Vijayalaxmi, K. T. K Murali MohanIndian Journal of Nephrology 2018 28(2):127-134 Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a recently recognized complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD), especially in end-stage renal disease. It has prevalence estimates of 30%–50% and is an independent predictor of increased mortality in CKD patients. The aim of this study is to analyze the prevalence of PH in patients with CKD, its severity in different stages of CKD, and risk factors for it. One hundred and eight patients with CKD treated at Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences, Hubli, Karnataka,...
