J Strength Cond Res 34(2): 422–429, 2020—Advanced dental techniques such as jaw-repositioning have shown to increase lower body muscular power such as vertical jump, but its effects on acceleration and speed have not been studied. Similarly, jaw repositioning is commonly used to increase airways volume and ventilation in a special population (i.e., obstructive sleep apnea); however, its ergogenic effects on aerobic performance have yet no...

CONCLUSIONS: Lifestyle subgroups of patients were determined by stress, emotional problems, and age. The groups were significantly associated with Aβ42 and diagnostic outcome. This pattern may confound the differentiation between objective and subjective memory problems. Asking about lifestyle variables, in conjunction with neuropsychological testing, could potentially identify individuals who are not likely to have objective memory impairment and guide interventions.

BOSTON (CBS) – The tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s death sent a shockwave across the country. For kids who grew up watching him play, the news can be difficult to cope with. Thirteen-year-old Jandell Marcano plays basketball for Hopkinton Middle School and wears the No. 24 because of Kobe. He was playing the video game NBA 2K as Kobe when he heard Bryant had died. “I was playing 2K, with him, then 10 minutes later I found out he died,” Jandell said. He was then devastated to learn Bryant’s daughter, Gianna, was also killed in the helicopter crash. She was the same age as Jandell. Elizabeth Booma...

Conclusions: Episodes of malignant arrhythmias are frequent in patients with OSA and systolic ventricular dysfunction. Although it is not possible to identify risk factors for the development of these events, its intensity depend on the systemic inflammatory level determined by IL2 and C-reactive protein.

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is associated with arrhythmias and cardiovascular death. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is highly prevalent and independently associated with atrial fibrillation among patients with HCM.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, although the pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for this interdependence are not completely known. For instance, the increased sympathetic activity may be implied. The severity of COPD correlates with various arrhythmic manifestations such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and either sustained or nonsustained ventricular tachycardia. COPD and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome may increase the overall cardiovascular risk, especially in elderly patients. Additionally, electrolytic disorders may precipitate cardiac rh...

A man in his 40s with self-reported hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea presented in cardiac arrest owing to ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation. He reported feeling unwell on the afternoon of presentation with dizziness and blurry vision, and then abruptly lost consciousness with seizure-like activity. On the arrival of emergency services, he was found to be pulseless with a rhythm of ventricular fibrillation; he was resuscitated with return of spontaneous circulation, intubated, and brought to the emergency department where cooling was initiated. His initial electrocardiogram (ECG) is ...
