BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) constitutes the most prevalent arrhythmia affecting up-to 2% percent of general population. Apart from well-established risk factors which increase the odds for the development of AF e.g. age or arterial hypertension, recent analyses indicated that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may independently, negatively modify arrhythmia occurrence profile. Concurrently, erectile dysfunction (ED) is commonly neglected, potent marker of cardiovascular risk which considerably worsens men's psychological state...

BACKGROUND: The etiology of sudden cardiac arrest in infants is different from that in adults, with respiratory failure, sudden infant death syndrome, and drowning being the primary causes in the former. According to the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations, the quality of chest compressions (CC) is a key element affecting the effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The current ERC and AHA guidelines recommend the 'two-finger technique' (TFT) or 'two-thumb encircling hands technique' (TTHT) for external CCs during infant CPR...
