Hypertensive disorders and pregnancy-related stroke: frequency, trends, risk factors, and outcomes.

CONCLUSION: Having traditional stroke risk factors substantially increased the stroke risk among hypertensive disorders of pregnancy hospitalizations. Stroke with hypertensive disorders in pregnancy had two distinctive characteristics: a greater increase in frequency since the mid-1990s and significantly higher stroke-related complication rates.

Conclusion Although ice slurry ingestion attenuated CV drift more than fluid ingestion, it did not mitigate the decline in V˙O2max. Contrary to previous findings, when ice slurry is ingested, changes in heart rate may not reflect changes in relative metabolic intensity during prolonged exercise in the heat.

Authors: Güçlü Gündüz A, Yazıcı G, Özkul Ç, Küçük H, Batur Çağlayan HZ, Nazlıel B Abstract Background/aim: Following stroke, damage to the central nervous system and adaptive changes in muscle tissue are factors responsible for the loss of muscle strength. Even though it is suggested that early physiotherapy and mobilization prevent structural adaptive changes in muscle tissue, studies regarding this issue are insufficient. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of early physiotherapy and mobilization on quadriceps muscle thickness (QMT...
