(HealthDay)—Since 2008, there has been an increase in the number of U.S. adults with awareness of heart attack symptoms and knowledge of the appropriate response to a heart attack, according to research published in the Feb. 8 issue of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Jing Fang, M.D., […]Continue Reading ...
Potentially lethal heart conditions may become easier to spot and may lead to improvements in prevention and treatment thanks to innovative new software that measures electrical activity in the organ. The heart’s pumping ability is controlled by electrical activity that triggers the heart muscle cells to contract and relax. In certain heart diseases such as […]Continue Reading ...
Experimental drug shows promise for simultaneously treating inflammation and heart disease in experimental models Prednisone, the current standard of care used to treat kids with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), reduces chronic inflammation but has harsh side effects. Eplerenone, a heart failure drug, is used in older patients to treat cardiomyopathy, a leading cause of mortality […]Continue Reading ...
Dean hopes his finding will lead to better measures of blood pressure. Credit: Peter Mathew New blood pressure categories are helping to inform the development of more accurate measurement devices, following a discovery by Tasmanian researchers. Blood pressure subtleties are being missed by the current cuff measure, according to a recent study led by Dean Picone […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Elderly men who experience extended episodes of interrupted breathing while asleep have a high risk of heart problems. Research shows for the first time that poor blood oxygenation is a good indicator of the chance of heart-related death, which cannot be attributed to sleep apnoea alone. A team led by Associate […]Continue Reading ...
Engineering researchers at the University of Toronto have developed a “training” device that can be used to grow cardiac tissue and measure how effectively it beats. Gen Epic Solutions | Shutterstock The device, called Biowire II, could be used in the future to test potential drug candidates and pave the way for new applications in […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic disease of the heart and a leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young people and athletes. Scientists have long known that the condition’s cardinal feature—an unusually thick heart muscle that contracts and relaxes abnormally—is fueled by some glitch in the heart’s molecular […]Continue Reading ...
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and romance, but the holiday has also become an opportunity to promote heart health, a tradition that continues as Clemson University bioengineers announce the launch of two separate research projects. Will Richardson and Naren Vyavahare said Thursday that they have each received grants from the National Institutes […]Continue Reading ...
If you happened to have dropped by the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco Monday evening, you might have caught sight of something out of the ordinary. Under the direction of an enthusiastic woman with a tight bun in her hair and a huge smile, dozens of people on the second floor of the bright, […]Continue Reading ...
Patients with heart failure are more likely to die after surgery than patients without heart failure, a study led by surgeon Sherry Wren, MD, has found. The higher mortality rate held even when the researchers considered that heart failure patients are generally in poor health and are more likely to undergo complex surgeries. “We adjusted for […]Continue Reading ...
Is it better to have a heart attack while traveling or at home? Find out at Acute Cardiovascular Care 2019. The annual congress of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA), a branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), will be held 2 to 4 March at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos de Malaga […]Continue Reading ...
Heart attack survivors may think the worst is behind them. But many later develop heart failure, a progressive disease marked by shortness of breath and swelling in the legs. Symptoms can prevent patients from working, exercising — even picking up grandchildren. Heart failure occurs after a heart attack when enough of the heart muscle dies, causing […]Continue Reading ...
Hypertension is abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries, which are the blood vessels that carry blood from the to the rest of the body. As the heart beats, it forces blood through the arteries to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the rest of the body. The strength of the blood pushing against the artery […]Continue Reading ...
