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.

CONCLUSION: Sputum suction and alveolar lavage with portable fibrobronchoscope can significantly improve the hypoxia and pulmonary infections, reduce the inflammatory response, and thus improve the prognosis, rendering suction and alveolar lavage with portable fibrobronchoscope as a safe and effective treatment for non-severe ischemic SAP patients with dysphagia.

The number and complexity of endoscopic procedures performed by gastroenterologists and surgeons have increased in parallel with the increasing number of antithrombotic agents in clinical use.1,2 The decision to stop and resume 1 or more of these antithrombotic agents in the periprocedural period is challenging, and one must consider several patient-specific and procedure-specific factors, most notably the indication for antithrombotic use and the bleeding risk associated with the procedure. Acute coronary syndrome and stroke carry high rates of  morbidity and mortality and are dreaded adverse events of withholdi...

(Natural News) A stroke is medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to your brain becomes blocked due to a blood clot or a burst blood vessel. This blockage deprives your brain of essential nutrients and oxygen, which can lead to brain cell death within minutes. Here are some risk factors related to lifestyle considerations that...

ConclusionThis innovative use of milrinone, if applied in more captured patients with internal carotid occlusion or those with reversible hemodynamic failure, would improve our understanding of the ischemic thresholds and cerebral vascular reserves and would improve the clinical outcome of this significant ischemic insult.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewHere, we describe the four primary imaging modalities for identification of carotid artery dissection, advantages, limitations, and clinical considerations. In addition, imaging characteristics of carotid dissection associated with each modality will be described.Recent FindingsRecent advances in etiopathogenesis describe the genetic factors implicated in cervical artery dissection. MRI/MRA (magnetic resonance angiography) with fat suppression is regarded as the best initial screening test to detect dissection. Advances in magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of dissection include the use o...

AbstractPurposeThe role of the autonomic nervous system in the genesis of atrial fibrillation (AF) has been well studied; however, the converse remains poorly understood. Pulmonary veins (PV) contain receptors important in cardiac reflexes. Here, we evaluated reflex responses in patients with paroxysmal AF (PAF) to lower body negative pressure (LBNP).MethodsThirty-four PAF patients (including 14 PAF patients post successful PV Isolation; PVI) were compared to 14 age and sex-matched controls. Mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), systemic vascular resistance index (SVRI), cardiac index (CI), and stroke volume index...

AbstractObjectivesTo produce a scoring system for predicting the development of edema in ischemic stroke patients without edema on admission.MethodsThis retrospective study included 572 ischemic stroke patients (73.3  ± 13.0 years, 300 male) without signs of cerebral edema on the first CT scan, which was performed on admission. Another scan was normally performed 3 days later, and subsequently whenever needed. Edema was defined as cerebral hypodensity with compression of lateral ventricles. The main clini cal, laboratory, and instrumental variables obtained during the first 24 h were rel...

AbstractProsthesis-patient mismatch (PPM) occurs when the effective orifice area of the prosthesis is too small in relation to the patient's body surface area. There are few data available on the frequency and prognostic impact of PPM after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Our aim was to determine the prevalence of PPM and to investigate its association with medium-term clinical course of patients undergoing TAVI. We included 185 patients undergoing TAVI (79 ± 5 years, 49% male, 98% CoreValve) between April-2008 and December-2014. The effective orifice area (EOA) was determined by transthoracic echoca...
