Cardiovascular reactivity and psychological hyperarousal in hot flash-associated insomnia disorder

Conclusions: Though hot flash-associated insomnia is characterized by psychological hyperarousal before sleep and during the daytime, it does not relate to cardiovascular responsiveness to acute stressors. Our findings do not support the hypothesis that altered cardiovascular control is a potential mechanism by which hot flash-associated insomnia confers higher cardiovascular disease risk.

ConclusionsSTAI-S and HADS-A reflect a common anxiety attribute, but using the recommended cutoff scores on the respective measures show very different prevalence rates and would classify patients as anxious with the STAI-S who would not be identified as such with the HADS-A. Clinicians and researchers should be aware of the inequivalence when using these measures for screening and determining the prevalence of probable clinical anxiety levels.

Patients with critical limb ischemia are exposed to qualitative and quantitative malnutrition as a result of anorexia caused by chronic pain, insomnia, overuse of analgesics, and limitation of mobility. Furthermore, malnutrition is a well-known factor that causes coagulation disorders and immunosuppression, and it directly adversely affects the wound healing process. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of qualitative and quantitative malnutrition on the results of revascularization procedures as frequency of large amputations in patients with critical lower limb ischemia.

The literature has shown a correlation between estrogen production and vascular protection (anti-inflammatory and vasoprotective effects). Therefore, as estrogen production decreases after menopause, there is an increase in cardiovascular risk. The aim of this study was to evaluate survival of women younger and older than 55  years after major vascular intervention and to compare it with that of age-matched men.

Authors: Orri JC, Hughes EM, Mistry DG, Scala A Abstract The authors compared the linear and nonlinear heart rate variability dynamics from rest through maximal exercise in postmenopausal women who trained at either moderate or high intensities. The outcome variables included the RR triangular index, TINN, SD1, SD2, SD1/SD2, DFA α1, DFA α2, and α1/α2. Maximal exercise reduced SD1, SD2, DFA α1, DFA α2, α1/α2, RRTri, and TINN in both groups and increased SD1/SD2 (p

This study aimed to verify the reliability and validity of a diagnostic tool for climacteric and postmenopausal syndrome pattern identification (CaPSPI) by identifying seven major patterns and 10 syndrome elements.MethodsThis study was conducted between June and October 2018, in two University Korean Medicine Hospitals. To investigate the construct validity, 275 women aged 45-60 years experiencing menopausal symptoms (Kupperman index ≥20) answered a 75-item questionnaire regarding menopausal symptoms. To investigate the tool’s criterion validity, a previously developed pattern identification questionnaire (DSOM) w...
