CONCLUSIONS: In this depictive study of 85 fatal cases of COVID-19, most cases were male aged over 50 years old with noncommunicable chronic diseases. The majority of the patients died of multiple organ failure. Early onset of shortness of breath may be used as an observational symptom for COVID-19 exacerbations. Eosinophilopenia may indicate a poor prognosis. The combination of anti-microbial drugs did not offer considerable benefit to the outcome of this group of patients.

Conclusions Job strain is associated with a higher risk of incident CHD in Denmark. As we used a JEM, we can rule out reporting bias. However, under- or overestimation of associations is possible due to non-differential misclassification of job strain and residual confounding by socioeconomic position.byRugulies R, Framke E, S ørensen JK, Svane-Petersen AC, Alexanderson K, Bonde JP, Farrants K, Flachs EM, Magnusson Hanson LL, Nyberg ST, Kivimäki M, Madsen IEH. doi:10.5271/sjweh.3890

This study aimed to assess the relationship between radiation dose and changes in the irradiated myocardial F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake after radiotherapy (RT) in breast cancer patients. The data of 55 patients with left and 48 patients with right breast cancer who underwent curative surgical resection and adjuvant three-dimensional conformal RT and staging (PET1), post-adjuvant chemotherapy (PET2), post-RT (PET3), and surveillance (PET4) FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) were retrospectively reviewed. The median interval between PET1 and curative surgical resection, between the end of ...

BEST supplements for the heart: One of the gravest threats to life expectancy is heart disease so taking steps to protect your heart could mean the difference between life or death. Taking supplements for your heart has been met with a degree of scepticism over the years due to scant evidence, but recent research suggests a particular supplement may hold promise as a form of protection against heart disease.

Artificial intelligence is making its way into health care, and one of its first stops is making sense of all of those scans that doctors order. Already, studies have shown that AI-based tools can, in some cases, pick out abnormal growths that could be cancerous tumors better than doctors can, mainly because digesting and synthesizing huge volumes of information is what AI does best. In a study published Feb. 14 in Circulation, researchers in the U.K. and the U.S. report that an AI program can reliably predict heart attacks and strokes. Kristopher Knott, a research fellow at the British Heart Foundation, and his team condu...

Loss of capillary density, and thus flow of blood through tissues, is a known feature of aging, though the causes of this change in tissue maintenance are far from completely explored. It is proposed to be quite important in loss of tissue function, particularly in organs with high metabolic demands, such as muscle and the brain. Researchers here provide evidence to suggest that this loss of capillary density is a noteworthy mediating mechanism linking the age-related impairment of heart function with the presence of chronic kidney disease. The latter is already known to correlate with impaired capillary structure in the h...
