Conclusion Overall cost was higher for patients with DM, whether or not they were admitted with acute HF due to HFrEF or HFpEF. Cost per day alive for patients with DM continued to exceed corresponding costs for patients without DM, with HFpEF patients with DM having the highest cost.

ABSTRACTBACKGROUNDVEST did not demonstrate a significant reduction in arrhythmic death with the wearable cardioverter ‐defibrillator (WCD), but compliance with the device may have substantially affected the results. The influence of WCD compliance on outcomes has not yet been fully evaluated.METHODSUsing linear and pooled logistic models, we performed as ‐treated analyses omitting person‐time in the hospital and adjusted for correlates of WCD compliance. To assess the impact of early stopping of WCD, we performed a per‐protocol Kaplan‐Meier analysis, censoring after the last day the WCD was worn. Interactions of ...

Abstract The oxygen uptake (V˙O2) kinetics during onset of and recovery from exercise have been shown to provide valuable parameters regarding functional capacity of both chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic heart failure (CHF) patients. To investigate the influence of comorbidity of COPD in patients with CHF with reduced ejection fraction on recovery from submaximal exercise, 9 CHF-COPD male patients and 10 age-, gender-, and left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF)-matched CHF patients underwent constant-load exercise tests (CLET) at moderate and high loads. The V˙O2, heart rate (HR), and ca...

Authors: Rathi V, Ish P, Singh G, Tiwari M, Goel N, Gaur SN Abstract Non-anemic iron deficiency has been studied in heart failure, but studies are lacking in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The potential clinical implications of association of iron deficiency with the severity of COPD warrant research in this direction. This was an observational, cross-sectional study on patients with COPD to compare disease severity, functional status and quality of life in non-anemic patients with COPD between two groups - iron deficient and non-iron deficient. Stable non-anemic COPD with no cause of bleeding were e...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Journal of Sport and Health ScienceAuthor(s): George A. BrooksAbstractOnce thought to be a waste product of oxygen limited (anaerobic) metabolism, lactate is now known to form continuously under fully oxygenated (aerobic) conditions. Lactate shuttling between producer (driver) and consumer cells fulfills at least 3 purposes; lactate is: (1) a major energy source, (2) the major gluconeogenic precursor, and (3) a signaling molecule. Lactate Shuttle theory is applicable to diverse fields such as sports nutrition and hydration, resuscitation from acidosis and Dengue, t...

Authors: Totzeck M, Rassaf T Abstract Cardiotoxic side effects can significantly limit the quality of life and survival of tumor patients under treatment. Acute and chronic effects include hypertension, venous and arterial thromboembolic events, acute and chronic coronary syndromes, heart failure and arrhythmias. Patients with previous cardiovascular diseases are often more frequently affected by side effects. The triggers are not only irradiation and conventional chemotherapy but increasingly also newer forms of cancer treatment. These include targeted therapy and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI). The goals of o...

ConclusionsAlthough the definitions found in the literature differ, the diagnosis of diastolic dysfunction is associated with a 3.53-fold increased risk of cardiovascular events or death. This finding highlights the importance of developing easily applicable and consensual diagnostic criteria, as well as fostering research on effective treatment strategies when diastolic dysfunction is identified in the subclinical stage.ResumoIntroduçãoA disfunção diastólica (DD) é muito prevalente e representa um mecanismo fisiopatológico central para várias doenças cardiovas...

This study aims to assess the impact of the implementation of a protocol-based follow-up program for heart failure patients on readmission and mortality rates and quality of life.MethodsA quasi-experimental study was performed, with a prospective registry of 50 consecutive patients discharged after hospitalization for acute heart failure. The study group was followed by a cardiologist at days 7-10 and the first, third, sixth and 12th month after discharge, with predefined procedures. The control group consisted of patients hospitalized for heart failure prior to implementation of the program and followed on a routine basis...
