Coronary artery vasospasm induced by cocaine (maybe)
2.5 out of 5 stars Cocaine-Induced Coronary Artery Vasospasm. Almaddah N, Ajayi TO. N Engl J Med 2016 Feb 4;374:e5 Full Text with video In a series of amazing studies that are now about three decades old, Richard Lange and his colleagues at Parkland Hospital in Dallas investigated the cardiovascular effects of administering intranasal cocaine to patients to patients during cardiac catheterization for routine workup of chest pain. In an initial study, the group demonstrated that cocaine produced coronary artery vasoconstriction that was relieved by nitroglycerin and exacerbated by smoking a cigarette and also by ad...

New theory about migraine triggers published
ConclusionThe study brings together evidence in support of a plausible theory about the causes of migraine. However, the evidence is very mixed in quality. Although the author says all triggers have the potential to cause oxidative stress, the link for some triggers is quite weak. For example, he says in the study it is unclear whether excessive mental work can cause oxidation, and that the role of oestrogen is not clear. Because of the difficulty of showing the effects of oxidative stress on the brain, most of the evidence is from animal studies on mice or rats, or studies of what happens to cells in test tubes or petri d...

Study Assesses Nitroglycerin's Effect on Hypotension in STEMI Patients
This study was designed to determine if nitroglycerin (NTG) administration is more likely to cause hypotension in patients with an inferior wall ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) versus one somewhere else in the heart. The authors defined hypotension as systolic blood pressure < 90 mmHg. They also examined the frequency of systolic blood pressure dropping more than 30 mmHg after NTG administration. The information was extracted from retrospective chart review of 1,488 EMS reports that had EMS 12-lead ECGs for which the computer interpretation was “acute MI.” They found that hypotension occurred as often in ...
