Heart disease has a substantial psychological component
MADRID, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Greek researchers say cardiovascular disease has a substantial psychological component and psychological interventions such as music therapy halve deaths.
Conclusion: Cardiac left ventricular and arterial functions are affected in psoriatic children and may be an alarming sign of atherosclerotic heart disease in the long term. Early detection of these changes may be helpful for eliminating other risk factors. PMID: 30997977 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Accumulating evidence suggested that circulating exosomes and its cargoes including mRNA, microRNA and long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) play essential roles in cardiovascular diseases, while their roles in RHD remain unexplored. In the present study, we investigated genomic profiles of circulating exosomes harvested from RHD patients. And we performed...
Around four million people in the UK carry genetic variants that protect them from obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease, according to a new paper co-authored by MRC researchers.
This statement was commissioned as a Multisociety Expert Consensus Systems of Care Document by the American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS), American College of Cardiology (ACC), American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), and Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). Expert Consensus Systems of Care Documents are intended to summarize the position of these partnering organizations on the availability, delivery, organization, and quality of cardiovascular care, with the intention of establishing appropriate benchmarks.
This study examines whether having health conditions or concerns related to smoking is associated with use of vaping products. Data came from the 2016 wave of the International Tobacco Control Four Country Smoking and Vaping Survey. Smokers and recent quitters (n = 11,344) were asked whether they had a medical diagnosis for nine health conditions (i.e., depression, anxiety, alcohol problems, severe obesity, chronic pain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and chronic lung disease) and concerns about past and future health effects of smoking, and their vaping activities. Respondents with depression and alcohol problems were m...
ConclusionPatients with subclinical hypothyroidism versus healthy individuals had some changes in echocardiographic parameters that indicate involvement of diastolic function of the left ventricle. They were significantly different when compared SH group and the control group. This study demonstrated ventricle diastolic dysfunction in pediatric patients with hypothyroidism. The results of our study suggest that cardiac follow-up may be useful in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism and clinical trials are needed to explore therapeutic effects of T4 and T3 administration in this patients.
CONCLUSION: This meta-analysis suggests that depression in patients was associated with increased risk of developing ventricular arrhythmias, especially in patients with CHD. Cardiologists and psychiatrists should be alert to the risk of ventricular arrhythmia in patients with depression. Moreover, the antidepressant medications (e.g., tricyclic antidepressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) that could affect heart rate variability should be used carefully. .

(Natural News) Just about everyone is familiar with Popeye, the sailor who packs a spinach-powered punch. It’s also a trick that parents (and grandparents) have used for decades to convince their children to eat their vegetables. It turns out, there’s truth behind those colossal punches. Spinach, according to multiple studies, offers a bevy of health benefits –...
Conclusion: The results suggest that CPAP and BIPAP are, respectively, the most effective therapeutic approaches to CSA in patients with the histories of HF and opioid use, but CPAP + O2 could be reliable in some conditions as well. Therefore, it may require further studies to be clarified. PMID: 30993083 [PubMed]
Your heart will thank you if you replace red meat with healthy plant proteins. Doing so will lower your odds for heart disease, according to a new study.
