Catecholamine-Induced Myocarditis in a Child with Pheochromocytoma

Conclusion: It should be kept in mind that even if there are no signs and symptoms of catecholamine elevation, cardiomyopathy may be the first sign of PCC. PMID: 31208160 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Background: The association of subclinical thyroid dysfunction (STD) with cardiac arrhythmias remains controversial, particularly in the non-elderly population. Objective: To investigate whether STD was associated with cardiac arrhythmias in a cohort of middle-aged and older adults. Methods: Baseline data of the Longitudinal Study of Adult Health, ELSA-Brasil (35-74 years) were collected from 2008 to 2010. After exclusion of clinical hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, participants were categorized as euthyroidism (TSH = 0.4-4.0 µU/mL), subclinical hypothyroidism (TSH> 4.0 µU/mL; FT4 = 0.8-1.9 ng/dL...

The prognosis associated with prolonged intra-ventricular conduction on electrocardiogram (ECG) remains uncertain. We aimed to compare clinical outcomes of narrow versus prolonged intra-ventricular conduction on ECG stratified by QRS morphology and cardiovascular disease (CVD) status. A post-hoc analysis was performed of the randomized-control PRECISION trial. Patients with centrally-adjudicated, non-paced baseline ECGs were included. QRS duration was classified narrow ( ≤100 ms) versus prolonged (>100 ms) with additional categorization into left (LBBB) or right (RBBB) bundle branch block or non-specific intra-ventri...

In this study, the goal is to develop an EMG patch which could be worn on the lower leg, the gastrocnemius muscle, to detect real-time muscle fatigue while exercising. A micro controller unit (MCU) in the EMG patch is part of an ARM Cortex-M4 processor, which is used to measure the median frequency (MF) of an EMG signal in real time. When the muscle starts showing tiredness, the median frequency will shift to a low frequency. In order to delete the noise of the isotonic EMG signal, the EMG patch has to run the empirical mode decomposition algorithm. A two-electrode circuit was designed to measure the EMG signal. The maximu...
