Stroke: What is a healthy amount of salt? This is the maximum you should eat
STROKE is a dangerous condition which causes some brain cells to die. To avoid it you can make diet changes to remove substances that increase your risk, such as salt which raises blood pressure. However you still need some salt, or sodium, to function normally. You should eat this much salt to help control the condition.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAn understanding of the basics concepts of deep learning can be helpful in not only understanding the potential applications of this technique but also in critically reviewing literature in which neural networks are utilized for analysis and modeling.Recent FindingsThe term “deep learning” has been applied to a subset of machine learning that utilizes a “neural network” and is often used interchangeably with “artificial intelligence.” It has been increasingly utilized in healthcare for computational “learning”, especially for pattern recognition for d...
Purpose We assessed resting central/peripheral blood pressure (BP), postexercise BP, and hemodynamic responses (stroke volume, cardiac output, and systemic vascular resistance) after acute exercise and 2 wk of aerobic training in lean and centrally obese men matched for BP. Methods Eight lean (body mass index 30 kg·m−2, visceral fat = 1471 ± 374 cm3) men performed six training sessions (3 d·wk−1 for 40 min at 65%–70% HRmax). Resting BP and hemodynamic measurements were obtained at baseline, after exercise for 60 min, and at 24 h and 48 h after the last training session. Results ...

RickardsAbstractProlonging the therapeutic window for treatment is imperative for survival from a multitude of life-threatening events such as hemorrhage, cardiac arrest, and stroke. Inspiratory resistance breathing is a therapeutic approach that augments the reduction in intrathoracic and intracranial pressure during inspiration, facilitating improvements in vital organ perfusion under conditions of ischemia, such as blood loss and cardiac arrest. In this review a series of studies will be presented ass...
