Correction of QRS voltage for body mass index does not improve the prediction of fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events. The Moli-sani study
ConclusionsBMI correction of ECG LVH voltage criteria does not significantly improve the prediction of cerebro and cardiovascular events in obese patients in a large cohort at low cardiovascular risk.
We report the case of a 58-year-old woman presenting with recurrent episodes of constrictive chest pain during exercise within the last 2 weeks. Except for obesity, general and cardiovascular clinical examination on admission were normal. Diagnoses: The resting 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed changes typically for Wellens syndrome. High-sensitive cardiac troponin I was normal. We established the diagnosis of low-risk non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome with a Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events risk score of 92 points. Interventions: The patient underwent coronary angiography, who showed su...
Obesity is associated with alterations in cardiac morphology. Common electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities occurring with high frequency in obese subjects include leftward axis shift, changes in P-wave morphology, low QRS-voltage, among others. We aim to determine if the prevalence of ECG abnormalities is higher among severely obese patients when compared with non-obese patients.
(JAMA Network) Electrocardiographic findings a woman in her 50s with COVID-19, fever and shortness of breath, with comorbidities that included morbid obesity and obstructive sleep apnea, are reported in this case series.
This case report presents the electrocardiographic findings a woman in her 50s with COVID-19, fever, and shortness of breath, with comorbidities including morbid obesity and obstructive sleep apnea.
Conclusions: The odds of several easy-to-assess cv disease risk factors are higher among middle-aged, but not older, cancer survivors relative to the general Canadian population. Initial assessment of cv risk for middle-aged adults in the survivorship setting could be quickly and inexpensively performed using self-reported and easily measured metrics.

ml;ksel S Abstract Obesity is a common health problem and the prevalence is increasing worldwide. The improper and unregulated use of unconventional therapies, especially herbal treatment methods, has grown due to widespread availability. In our case, a 41-year-old male patient developed palpitation, confusion, loss of consciousness, and cardiac arrest while at home. An emergency medical team was called and chest compressions were performed by his wife until the medical team arrived. Ventricular fibrillation was detected on the monitor 5 minutes after the cardiac arrest occurred and the patient was defibrillated. ...
This study aimed to explore the correlation between serum osteocalcin levels and correct QT interval (QTc) interval prolongation, a risk factor of cardiac morbidity and mortality. METHODS: We recruited 1210 subjects (age range: 26-80 years) in communities in Shanghai. Serum osteocalcin levels were determined using an electrochemiluminescence immunoassay. The QTc interval was measured using a 12-lead electrocardiogram and was calculated by the Bazett formula. A prolonged QTc interval was defined as QTc > 440 ms. Visceral fat area (VFA) was assessed by magnetic resonance imaging. A VFA of 80 ...
In conclusion, this group of paediatric patients with PWS had impaired cardiac autonomic balance due to reduced parasympathetic modulation during SWS. This result could imply an underlying increased cardiovascular risk in PWS even during early age and independent of obesity. PMID: 32812310 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: patients with anterior MI who suffer from diabetes with hyperglycemia in admission, obesity, and dyslipidemia have a potentially higher LP prevalence, despite statistical insignificance. To increase the prognostic value of SA-ECG, serial examinations are needed during hospitalization. PMID: 32778627 [PubMed - in process]
