The objective of this research article was to assess the trend of hospitalization, epidemiological characteristics and economic burden in the young adult, aged 18–45 years, presenting with atrial fibrillation.MethodsHospitalization data from the National Inpatient Sample between 2005 and 2015 were used to analyze prevalence of risk factors and financial burden in young adults with atrial fibrillation.ResultsFrom 2005 to 2015, a total of 260,080 admissions were included in the study. From 2005 to 2015, there was a decreasing trend of total admissions with atrial fibrillation among the age group of 18–45 years co...

Authors: Augstburger E, Héron E, Abanou A, Habas C, Baudouin C, Labbe A Abstract Ischemic optic neuropathies are among the leading causes of severe visual acuity loss in people over 50 years of age. They constitute a set of various entities that are clinically, etiologically and therapeutically different. Anatomically, it is necessary to distinguish anterior and posterior forms. From an etiological point of view, the diagnosis of the arteritic form due to giant cell arteritis requires emergent management to prevent blindness and even death in the absence of prompt corticosteroid treatment. When this diagnosi...

Conclusion The mediating effects of sleep improvement on cardiometabolic risk/disease control were inconclusive. More research to examine the effect of sleep-related risk-factor modification on cardiovascular health is warranted.

CONCLUSIONS: Newly-diagnosed essential HTN patients aged 30 or older who had comorbid SD at the time of their HTN diagnosis had a higher incidence of cardiovascular complications than those without comorbid SD. Age, gender, income, area of residence, and comorbid diabetes mellitus had a significant effect on the incidence of cardiovascular complications. Approximately 2% of cardiovascular complications were found to occur due to the presence of SD. PMID: 32023673 [PubMed - in process]

No, I kid you not. There’s no Sir Not-Appearing-in-this-Film nor eloquent monologues about swallows, and not even a reference to hose-riding coconut mimicry. I’ve truly found the Holy Grail of health tracking and will share it with you today. Behold as the answer is… the smart sleep alarm! If you ask anyone I know, they’ll probably share how I reverently praise smart sleep alarms. By the end of this article, you will understand why this is the case. Don’t count sheep, your health depends on it When I was a baby, my parents used to sing me lullabies to lull me off to sleep. As ...

The objective of our study was to determine the prevalence, risk factors, and the impact of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the adult with congenital heart disease (ACHD). One hundred forty-nine consecutive patients seen in our ACHD program were screened for OSA using the Berlin Questionnaire. Demographic and clinical details on subjects were collected through a chart review. Clinical variables were analyzed to determine risk factors for positive OSA screen, as well as associated outcomes. Seventy-seven (52%) of our cohort were females. The median age of the cohort was 33  years (range = 18–74) an...

Sleep is very important for our physical and mental health. Sleep disturbances increase risk of substance use disorders as well as risk of onset and worsening of medical and other primary psychiatric problems like diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and depression [1,2]. Substance use disorders, particularly alcohol and opioids can cause or exacerbate sleep disturbances [3,4] leading to even greater problems with our health in addition to the consequences of substance use [1,2].

This study found an association between stroke risk and longer sleep, longer midday napping, or poor sleep quality. But an association is not the same as causation. Rather than longer sleep duration causing strokes, there are other possible explanations for the findings. For example, people who sleep more at night or nap more during the day may have other risk factors for stroke, such as: A higher incidence of depression. Excessive sleeping or poor sleep quality may be symptoms of depression, and prior studies have noted higher stroke rates among depressed individuals. A more sedentary lifestyle. Those who are not active ...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common chronic disease resulting from repetitive collapse of the airway during sleep, causing hypoxemia and sleep fragmentation. Untreated OSA at varying severity levels has been linked to hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, stroke, diabetes, decreased work performance, decreased quality of life (QOL), and increased all-cause mortality. It is a costly global health concern as the increasing prevalence of OSA parallels the rising rates of obesity. OSA affects approximately 22% of men and 17% of women, while severe OSA is present in 2-4% of the adult population1.
