Serial heart rate measurement and mortality after acute heart failure
We examined the association between HR obtained at admission at Day 4 and at discharge and long ‐term mortality in a cohort of 672 patients discharge from hospital after management of acute HF.Methods and resultsAll patients examined were in sinus rhythm. HR was derived from electrocardiogram and was defined as the first reported HR in the medical record. At 1 year follow up, 60 patients died. Median HR was 86 ± 17 b.p.m. (first tertile: 75 b.p.m., third tertile: 97 b.p.m.) at admission, 76 ± 14 b.p.m. (first tertile: 67 b.p.m., third tertile 85 b.p.m.) at Day 4, and 72 ± 11 b.p.m. (first tertile: 64 b.p.m., third tertile 80 b.p.m.) at discharge. Patients who died were significantly older (75 ± 11 vs. 71 ± 12 years;P = 0.027), had more frequently a history of ischemic cardiomyopathy (n = 34/60,P = 0.012) and of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (n = 26/60,P = 0.027), had higher admission N terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (14 572 ± 21 600 vs. 7647 ± 7964 pg/ml;P = 0.027), had lower systolic and diastolic blood pressures (P 85 b.p.m. at Day 4 (P 80 b.p.m. at discharge (P

In this study, we aimed to assess the possible association between affective temperaments and GH.Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on women with GH hospitalized in hospitals affiliated with Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, compared with healthy women admitted for normal delivery in the same centers during the study. Data were collected via Temperament Evaluation of Memphis, Pisa, Paris, and San Diego-Auto-questionnaire (TEMPS-A) and Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS) 21.Results: TEMPS-A revealed that scores anxious (P
Conclusion: This study provides evidence for blood pressure management in Chinese pregnant women. PMID: 32243195 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we hypothesized that moderately and chronically reducing ACh could attenuate the deleterious effects of aging on NMJs and skeletal muscles. To test this hypothesis, we analyzed NMJs and muscle fibers from heterozygous transgenic mice with reduced expression of the vesicular ACh transporter (VAChT), VKDHet mice, which present with approximately 30% less synaptic ACh compared to control mice. Because ACh is constitutively decreased in VKDHet, we first analyzed developing NMJs and muscle fibers. We found no obvious morphological or molecular differences between NMJs and muscle fibers of VKDHet and contro...
Conclusions: Patients with ≥1 risk factor had a 30% higher risk for arrhythmia recurrence after ablation, but no differences in risk for repeat ablations, adverse events or death.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved
