Difference in prevalence of exertional oscillatory ventilation between healthy subjects and patients with cardiovascular disease.

Difference in prevalence of exertional oscillatory ventilation between healthy subjects and patients with cardiovascular disease. Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2020 Mar 27;90(1): Authors: Corrà U, Piepoli M, Giordano A Abstract Exercise oscillatory ventilation (EOV) is an ominous sign in heart failure due to reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF) whatever it is represented. But EOV is detected also in normal healthy individuals and in other cardiovascular disease (CVD) patients, however, its prevalence in these is not completed clear. The aim was to describe the occurrence of EOV in healthy subjects and the overall population all CVD patients who performing symptom limited cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). Healthy subjects were divided in athletes and normal subjects, while, CVD patients were subdivided into: i) t hose with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF); ii) those with mild to moderate impairment of LVEF (41-49%); iii) those with severe impairment of LVEF (≤40%); iv) HFrEF or with preserved LVEF (HFpEF); and iv) patients after heart transplantation (HXT). EOV was observed only in CVD patients and in those with depressed LVEF; the prevalence of EOV was observed 1.9% (3/55) those with mild to moderate impairment of LVEF (41-49%), 3.4% (56/1613) those with severe impairment of LVEF (≤40%), and 7.3% (214/2903) in HFrEF); no EOV was observed in CVD with preserved LVEF. Kremser's EOV was observed in patients, and,...

Cognitive impairment and mood deviation often occurs in patients with heart failure. Frailty and sarcopenia have been widely studied in patients with heart disease, but cognitive frailty has been little explored. High complexity of patients referred for heart transplantation connected with socioeconomic characteristics in a developing country underlines the importance to investigate cognitive and mood conditions in this population. The aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of cognitive impairment and depression symptoms in patients with heart failure in waiting list for heart transplantation (HTx).

Left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) are being implanted at a higher rate than ever before to treat end stage heart failure, and are known to decrease mortality and increase quality of life (QOL) for patients. However, major adverse events, including major bleeding and infection (INTERMACS definitions), are common in patients with an LVAD. These events have great potential to impair patient experiences of living with an LVAD.The purpose of this analysis was to examine whether having a major adverse event would alter patient-reported outcomes over time, including depressive symptoms and QOL.

Health literacy is an established concept in the health care world that seeks to understand people's comprehension of various healthcare information and their ability to apply it. Health literacy has been extensively studied in the heart failure literature, and inadequate health literacy has been linked to impaired ability to assess risk versus benefit information, poorer physical and mental health, increased hospitalizations, and an inability to fully engage in treatment planning and self-care.

In conclusion, taller body height at the entry to adulthood, supposed to be a marker of early-life environment, is associated with lower risk of dementia diagnosis later in life. The association persisted when adjusted for educational level and intelligence test scores in young adulthood, suggesting that height is not just acting as an indicator of cognitive reserve.

This is the latest in a series of yearly posts in which I suggest areas of development for biotech startups I'd like to see actively developed as a part of the longevity industry in the near future. Today, this year, is a good time to be starting a company focused on the production of a novel therapeutic approach to intervening in the aging process. There is a great deal of funding for seed stage investment, and many compelling projects lacking champions, yet to be carried forward from academia into preclinical development. Numerous scientific and industry crossover conferences are now held every year, at which it is possi...

Conclusions Body image significantly predicted personal well-being among patients with an implanted LVAD. Depression alone, or depression combined with anxiety, moderated the relationships between body image and personal well-being. The current results may help to heighten healthcare providers' awareness of body image perception among patients with an implanted LVAD.

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all...
