[Exercise Training and Physical Activity in Patients with Heart Failure].
Abstract Exercise Training and Physical Activity in Patients with Heart Failure Abstract. Heart failure is a clinical syndrome with different etiologies and phenotypes. For all forms, supervised exercise training and individual physical activity are class IA recommendations in current guidelines. Exercise training can start in the hospital, immediately after stabilization of acute heart failure (phase I). After discharge, it can continue in a stationary or ambulatory prevention and rehabilitation program (phase II). Typical components are endurance, resistance and respiratory training. Health insurances cover cost...

Abstract Sustainably Anchoring Exercise as a Therapy in Health Care Abstract. Regular exercise reduces the risk of suffering from noncommunicable diseases such as cancer or diabetes. Within the framework of the National Strategy for the Prevention of Non-communicable Diseases, movement as a form of therapy is therefore to be anchored in health care in the future. Sports physicians have an important role as multipliers. PMID: 30131031 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Praxis)

The Role of Physical Exercise in Obesity and Diabetes.
Abstract SUMMARY: The prevalence of obesity is increasing world-wide. Obesity is associated with a plethora of metabolic and clinical constraints, which result in a higher risk for the development of cardiovascular complications and metabolic disease, particularly insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Obesity is an acknowledged determinant of glycemic control in patients with type 1 diabetes and accounts for the majority of premature death due to cardiovascular events. Physical exercise is generally recommended in patients with diabetes in order to prevent the development of or reduce existing obesity, as adopte...

This article aims to summarize the literature on the role of physical activity in cancer patients and to propose exercise programs based on studies and recommendations. Medical advances with improved early diagnosis and treatment have increased the number of cancer survivors. At the same time, the quality of life of these patients must also be improved. In the different stages of the disease physical activity has an important role to play with its beneficial effects on fatigue, physical condition, mood etc. Collaboration between health system actors and patient education are the key to success in this multi-disciplinary ca...

Abstract CME: Acquired Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis Abstract. Acquired hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis comprises a heterogenous group of hyperinflammatory immunoreactions often resulting in uncontrolled immune responses, mainly throughout proliferation of cytotoxic T cells and hemophagocytosis by macrophages. Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is often underdiagnosed, contributing to its high morbidity and mortality. A systematic diagnostic approach and the use of established diagnostic criteria should lead to an early diagnosis, which is crucial for any therapeutic attempt to achieve a curative state of ...

[Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis].
Abstract Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis Abstract. Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a group of rare diseases characterized by over-activation of the immune system. They form two groups: primary and secondary HLH. Primary HLH are linked to mutations impairing lymphocyte cytotoxicity. Secondary HLH are triggered by infections, autoimmune diseases or neoplasia, the remaining cases being labeled idiopathic. HLH manifest as febrile states, cytopenias and hepatosplenomegaly. In the absence of treatment, they quickly lead to multiple organ failure. The diagnosis is currently based on the presence of several...

Routine diagnosis should include a detailed medical history and a physical examination including Allen's test. Imaging of vascular lesions can be done initially by acral plethysmography and duplex sonography, or directly in the context of angiography (gold standard). Early diagnosis enables effective therapeutic strategies and preventing permanent sequelae. The optimal treatment options are selected depending on the intensity ...

Pituitary adenomas (PA) are benign neoplasms originating from parenchymal cells of the anterior pituitary. Tumor mass effect can cause headaches, visual deficits by compression of the optic chiasm, and partial or complete hypopituitarism. Hormone secreting PA can cause several forms of specific syndromes such as Cushing's disease or acromegaly depending on the type of hormone. Endoscopic transsphenoidal resection is the preferred treatment option for most symptomatic or growing PA. Nowadays techniques l...

The aim of this review article is to discuss protein intake in senior adults at risk for fragility fractures as a modifiable factor for fracture prevention. Proteins are building blocks of the bone matrix and the muscles. This dual function fits in with the concept of prevention of fragility fractures in senior adults aimed at reducing both bone loss and falls. In older adults, a protein-rich diet could be another simple and effective way to promote bone and muscle health, in addition to the established recomme...

Abstract Biomarkers of Smoking - Which Cut-Off Values Should be Used? Abstract. Verification of smoking status by means of biomarkers is important for treatment decisions of patients with smoking-related diseases. Cotinine is currently the best biomarker to document nicotine consumption. A low cost alternative method to determine smoking status is by measurement of carboxyhemoglobin (CO-Hb) in the exhaled breath. The main disadvantage of CO-Hb is the short half-life. The appropriate cut-off value for active nicotine consumption in Switzerland is 50 ng/ml or higher cotinine in the urine or 10 ng/ml and 12 ng/ml in ...
