Noninvasive Determination of Blood Pressure by Heart Sound Analysis Compared With Intra-Arterial Monitoring in Critically Ill Children—A Pilot Study of a Novel Approach

Conclusions: Our findings provide proof of concept that the heart-sound signal-based method can provide accurate, noninvasive blood pressure monitoring.

AbstractPurpose of reviewRapid advancements in technology and electronic medical record systems have given rise to massive amounts of cardiac imaging data with the potential to alter medical practices. The rise of machine learning (ML) and radiomics – the concept that images contain invaluable data regarding disease processes beyond what the eyes can see – promises increased precision and accuracy to the current standard of care. Recent advancements in major cardiac imaging modalities, such as echocardiography, cardiac CT and cardiac MRI, h ave uncovered promising diagnostic and prognostic information through t...

CONCLUSION: AI AS GOOD OR BETTER than middle rad residents EXCEPT: “ In general, residents performed better for more subtle anomalies, such as masses and nodules, misplaced lines and tubes, and various forms of consolidation, while the AI algorithm was better at detecting nonanomalous findings, the presence of tubes and lines, and clearly visible anomalies, such as cardiomegaly, pleural effusion, and pulmonary edema," the authors wrote. "Conversely, the AI algorithm generally performed worse for lower-prevalence findings that also had a higher level of difficulty of interpretation, such as masses or nodul...

AbstractBackground and objective The main objective was to evaluate the impact of Hepatitis C Virus treatment with direct-acting antiviral agents on tacrolimus blood levels in recipients of kidney and heart allografts.Method We analysed Hepatitis C Virus infected adult patients who received tacrolimus as immunosuppressive maintenance therapy and received direct-acting antiviral agents treatment in a tertiary hospital with solid transplant multidisciplinary program in Madrid, Spain. Liver and renal function, tacrolimus dose and blood levels were analysed before and 12  weeks after the end of treatment.Results We identi...

CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrate that adult patients in cardiac arrest initiated on VA ECMO in the cardiac catheterization laboratory and cared for by a multidisciplinary shock team in the critical care unit have superior long-term survival and functionally favorable neurologic recovery when compared to current literature.

By KEN TERRY In a recent podcast about the future of telehealth, Lyle Berkowitz, MD, a technology consultant, entrepreneur, and professor at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, confidently predicted that, because of telehealth and clinical automation, “In 10-20 years, we won’t need primary care physicians [for routine care]. The remaining PCPs will specialize in caring for complicated patients. Other than that, if people need care, they’ll go to NPs or PAs or receive automated care with the help of AI.” Berkowitz isn’t the first to make this kind of predictio...

Conclusions: Somatostatin concentrations were associated with CVP and CI in patients with HF. The pathophysiological mechanism may be related to congestion and/or hypoperfusion of the intestine. Somatostatin was an independent predictor of mortality in advanced HF.Cardiology
