Conclusion: Self-management behaviors and HrQoL of CHD patients in Chinese communities were inadequate. There is a positive correlation between self-management behaviors and HrQoL among CHD patients in Chinese community settings. Therefore, it is critical to improve self-management behaviors and HrQoL of CHD patients in Chinese communities.Impact statement: Self-management behaviors were found to positively influence on HrQoL among CHD patients in Chinese community settings. It is necessary to develop the nursing intervention on self-management behaviors to enhance the HrQoL of CHD patients in Chinese communities. PMID...

Authors: Takayanagi Y, Koike A, Kubota H, Wu L, Nishi I, Sato A, Aonuma K, Kawakami Y, Ieda M Abstract The pulse wave transit time (PWTT) is easily measured as the time from the R wave of an electrocardiogram to the arrival of the pulse wave measured by an oxygen saturation monitor at the earlobe. We investigated whether the change of PWTT during exercise testing reflects cardiopulmonary function. Eighty-nine cardiac patients who underwent cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) were enrolled. We analyzed the change of PWTT during exercise and the relationship between the shortening of the PWTT and CPX parameters. P...

AbstractPulmonary hypertension (PH) has been described in myelofibrosis (MF), but it is rare and typically found in advanced disease. Although the etiology of PH in MF is unclear, early predictors may be detected by echocardiogram. The goals of our study were to evaluate the prevalence of PH as determined by echocardiography in a cohort of MF patients and to identify clinical risk factors for PH. We performed a retrospective review of MF patients from October 2015 to May 2017 at MD Anderson Cancer Center in the ambulatory clinic, and those with echocardiogram were included. Clinical, echocardiographic, and laboratory data ...
