BACKGROUND: Coronary artery calcified atherosclerotic plaque (CAC) predicts cardiovascular disease (CVD). Despite exposure to more severe conventional CVD risk factors, African Americans (AAs) are less likely to develop CAC, and when they do, have markedly lower levels than European Americans. Genetic factors likely contribute to the observed ethnic differences. To identify genes associated with CAC in AAs with type 2 diabetes (T2D), a genome-wide association study (GWAS) was performed using the Illumina 5 M chip in 691 African American-Diabetes Heart Study participants (AA-DHS), with replication in 205 Jackson Heart Study (JHS) participants with T2D...

Background: A compression-ventilation (C:V) ratio of 30:2 is recommended for adult cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by the current American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines. However, continuous chest compression (CCC) is an alternative strategy for CPR that minimizes interruption especially when an advanced airway exists. In this study, we investigated the effects of 30:2 mechanical CPR when compared with CCC in combination with regular ventilation in a porcine model. Methods: Sixteen male domestic pigs weighing 39±2 kg were utilized...

Hypertension is a major risk factor for ischemic cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease, which are respectively the primary and secondary most common causes of morbidity and mortality across the globe. To alleviate the risks of hypertension, there are a number of effective antihypertensive drugs available. However, the optimal treatment blood pressure goal for antihypertensive therapy remains an area of controversy. The results of the recent Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) trial, which found benefits for intensive lowering of systolic blood pressure, have been debated for several reasons...

Differences in coping within the African American population are not well understood, yet these differences may be critical to reducing stress, improving health, and reducing racial health disparities. Using a descriptive, exploratory analysis of the Jackson Heart Study (N = 5301), we examine correlations between coping responses and associations between coping and demographic, socioeconomic, psychosocial, and neighborhood factors. Overall, coping responses were not strongly correlated and patterns of associations between covariates and coping responses were largely inconsistent...

Chest compression cannot be effectively applied under certain situations, such as chest wall deformity, rib fracture, or hemopneumothorax. Active abdominal compression-decompression cardiopulmonary resuscitation (AACD-CPR) could reach better resuscitation outcomes in certain cardiac arrest (CA) patients. AACD-CPR can strengthen the high quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in "2015 American Heart Association for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care update guide". The two methods can complement each other in opposite direction, and implement the "2016 national consensus on cardiopulmonary resuscitation on CPR in China", which is an important part of the wisdom to the Chinese CPR...

BACKGROUND: NO bioavailability has not been systematically examined in congenital heart disease (CHD). To assess NO in patients with CHD, we measured nasal NO (nNO) generated by the nasal epithelia, given blood NO is difficult to measure (half-life, <2 ms). Given NO's role in hemodynamic regulation and the association of NO bioavailability with heart failure risk, we hypothesized NO levels may differ with varying severity of CHD physiologic characteristics. METHODS AND RESULTS: Six-hundred eighteen subjects, 483 with CHD and 135 controls, had nNO measured noninvasively via the nares using American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society guidelines...

Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) is a purified plasma product that is used for many immune-deficient conditions and autoimmune conditions. Use of IVIg for treatment for Kawasaki disease (KD) is critical for control of inflammation. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends a single infusion of 2 g/kg preferably given during the first 10 days of illness. In this review, we have discussed the possible mechanisms of action of IVIg in KD and its clinical usage in this condition.

Unfavorable lipid levels during childhood are associated with subsequent development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The American Academy of Pediatrics and National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in 2011 recommended universal lipid screening for children between ages 9-11 years and between ages 17-21 years. The objective of the study was to determine temporal trends in lipid testing among children and young adults in a mid-western population. The Rochester Epidemiology Project database was used to identify lipid testing in ages 2-21 years (n = 51,176) in the Olmsted County population from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2014...

BACKGROUND: Increased left ventricular (LV) myocardial stiffness may be associated with impaired LV hemodynamics and incident heart failure (HF). However, an indicator that estimates LV myocardial stiffness easily and non-invasively is lacking. The purpose of this study was to determine whether diastolic wall strain (DWS), an echocardiographic estimator of LV myocardial stiffness, is associated with incident HF in a middle-aged community-based cohort of African Americans. METHODS AND RESULTS: We investigated associations between DWS and incident HF among 1528 African Americans (mean age 58...

Implantable cardiodefibrillators (ICDs) have proven benefit in preventing sudden cardiac death (SCD) in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC), making risk stratification essential. Data on the predictive accuracy on the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) risk scoring system have been conflicting. We independently evaluated the ESC risk scoring system in our cohort of patients with HC from a large tertiary center and compared this with previous guidance by the American College of Cardiology Foundation and Heart Association (ACCF/AHA)...

There is a large number of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), diabetes mellitus (DM), and hypertension (HT) but whether the targets on blood pressure (BP) control in patients with DM and/or CKD are met is not clear. This narrative review therefore investigated evidence on services aimed at achieving desirable clinical results in patients with CKD and DM, and HT in Australia. Literature pertaining to pathology diagnosis and management of these patients as well as the complexities in management were considered...

As noted in part 1 of this series, periprocedural cardiac arrest (PPCA) can differ greatly in etiology and treatment from what is described by the American Heart Association advanced cardiac life support algorithms, which were largely developed for use in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and in-hospital cardiac arrest outside of the perioperative space. Specifically, there are several life-threatening causes of PPCA of which the management should be within the skill set of all anesthesiologists. However, previous research has demonstrated that continued review and training in the management of these scenarios is greatly needed and is also associated with improved delivery of care and outcomes during PPCA...

Social inequalities are at the heart of disparities in sexual health outcomes among African American and Latino/a adolescents living in the United States. Schools are typically the largest and primary context in youth development. School characteristics such as peer and teacher discrimination and school performance were examined to determine whether such characteristics predict sexual behavior in adolescents of color. This study utilized a representative sample of high school age students to assess sexual risk behavior...

Depression is associated with an increased likelihood of cardiac events and stroke. We hypothesized that the vascular risk factor burden might itself predispose to both cardiovascular events and depression. Therefore, we examined whether aggregate scores of vascular risk factor burden were associated with the new-onset of depression in the community. We studied 2023 depression- and dementia-free Framingham Heart Study (Framingham, USA) Offspring participants who attended both examination cycles 7 (1998-2001) and 8 (2005-2008)...
