Continual measurement of arterial dP/dtmax enables minimally invasive monitoring of left ventricular contractility in patients with acute heart failure

Continuous, reliable evaluation of left ventricular (LV) contractile function in patients with advanced heart failure requiring intensive care remains challenging. Continual monitoring of dP/dtmax from the arteri...

BOSTON (CBS) — A drug that has been used to treat heart failure for decades may improve behavioral symptoms in some young children with autism. Bumetanide is a diuretic, which is used to treat the buildup of fluid in the body. Researchers in China and at the University of Cambridge looked at 83 kids between three and six years old and found that, three months later, the children treated with the diuretic scored better on a behavior scale which measures emotional response as well as verbal and non-verbal communication. They believe the drug helps nerve cells communicate more effectively by reducing the level of a...

The prognostic significance of temporal changes in resting heart rate in young adults for premature heart failure and cardiovascular disease is unclear. We investigated the association between temporal changes in resting heart rate in young adults and early adult risk factors, subsequent cardiac function, and the risk of heart failure and cardiovascular by middle age.

ABSTRACTBackgroundAtrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with heart failure (HF) rehospitalization in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).ObjectiveWe tested the hypothesis that catheter ablation of AF could reduce HF rehospitalization compared with conventional pharmacotherapy in patients with HFpEF.MethodsEighty ‐five consecutive HFpEF (EF≥50% and a history of HF hospitalization) patients diagnosed as AF by 12‐lead electrocardiogram were retrospectively analyzed. Thirty‐five patients who received catheter ablation (ABL group) were compared with 50 patients treated by anti‐arrhyt...

ConclusionsIn this relatively young, oligosymptomatic, and with regard to the protocol without major comorbidities patient cohort, the overall costs are lower than expected compared with the HFrEF population. Further investigation is needed to investigate the impact of, for example, comorbidities and their effect over a longer period of time. Simultaneously, this analysis suggests that prevention of comorbidities are necessary to reduce costs in the health care system.
