The objective of this study was to prospectively test the performance of POC cTn measurement by paramedics to detect myocardial infarction (MI) among patients transported to the ED for acute chest pain.Methods: A prospective cohort study of adults with non-traumatic chest pain was conducted in 3 Emergency Medical Services agencies (12/2016-1/2018). Patients with ST-elevation MI on ECG were excluded. During ambulance transport paramedics initiated intravenous access, collected blood, and used a POC device (i-STAT; Abbott Laboratories) to measure cTn. Following ED arrival, participants received standard evaluations including...

AbstractWe investigated the relationship between time trends in nutrient intake and coronary risk factors/mortality rates in Tanushimaru, a Japanese cohort of the Seven Countries Study. All men between the ages of 40 and 64 were enrolled. Subjects numbered 628 in 1958, 539 in 1977, 602 in 1982, 752 in 1989, 402 in 1999, 329 in 2009, and 160 in 2018. Eating patterns were evaluated by 24-h dietary recall from 1958 through 1989, and by a food frequency questionnaire administered from 1999 through 2018. The total daily energy intake decreased from 2,837  kcal in 1958 to 2,096 kcal in 2018. Carbohydrate intake as a pe...

ute;nyi J Abstract Mortality in type 1 diabetes, although showing a declining trend, is significantly higher than standard mortality. The case study focuses on a woman who lived for 91 years; she was insulin-dependent for 86 years and has been treated by a single physician - the author - for over 55 years. She was diagnosed with diabetes in 1932 at the age of five.
