Objective: Cardiovascular diseases generate the highest mortality in the globe population, mainly due to coronary artery disease (CAD) like arrhythmia, myocardial infarction and heart failure. Therefore, an early identification of CAD and diagnosis is essential. For this, we have proposed a new approach to detect the CAD patients using heart rate variability (HRV) signals. This approach is based on subspaces decomposition of HRV signals using multiscale wavelet packet (MSWP) transform and entropy features extracted from decomposed HRV signals...

Normal pediatric values of three-dimensional (3D) left ventricular (LV) volumes and strain are not well established; moreover, no reports exist of the stress-strain relation and the heart rate-corrected velocity of circumferential fiber shortening (VCFc) based upon 3D imaging in children. Three-dimensional LV datasets were obtained in pediatric patients (≤18 years of age) with structurally normal hearts. Ventricular volumes and strain components (longitudinal, GLS; circumferential, GCS; and 3D strain, 3DS) were analyzed using a commercial 3D speckle-tracking analysis package...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to identify whether impaired global longitudinal strain (GLS), diastolic dysfunction (DD), or left atrial enlargement (LAE) should be added to stage B heart failure (SBHF) criteria in asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. BACKGROUND: SBHF is a precursor to clinical heart failure (HF), and its recognition justifies initiation of cardioprotective therapy. However, original definitions of SBHF were based on LV hypertrophy and impaired ejection fraction...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral microbleeds are a potential neuroimaging biomarker of cerebral small vessel diseases that are prone to intracranial bleeding. We aimed to determine whether presence of cerebral microbleeds can identify patients at high risk of symptomatic intracranial haemorrhage when anticoagulated for atrial fibrillation after recent ischaemic stroke or transient ischaemic attack. METHODS: Our observational, multicentre, prospective inception cohort study recruited adults aged 18 years or older from 79 hospitals in the UK and one in the Netherlands with atrial fibrillation and recent acute ischaemic stroke or transient ischaemic attack, treated with a vitamin K antagonist or direct oral anticoagulant, and followed up for 24 months using general practitioner and patient postal questionnaires, telephone interviews, hospital visits, and National Health Service digital data on hospital admissions or death...

BACKGROUND: A troponin assay is commonly sent for patients presenting to emergency departments (EDs) with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Multiple studies suggest that elevated troponin levels do not predict coronary artery disease in these patients. Patients with elevated troponins are more likely to have additional cardiac testing, which can lead to increased health care costs and unnecessary invasive procedures. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to evaluate low- to intermediate-risk patients (HEART [history, electrocardiography, age, risk factors and troponin] Score 1-6) presenting to the ED with SVT...

OBJECTIVE: A few studies report comparable analgesic efficacy between low-dose ketamine and opioids such as morphine or fentanyl; however, limited research has explored the safety and effectiveness of intravenous low-dose ketamine as a primary analgesic in a civilian prehospital setting. The objective of this study is to compare pain control between low-dose ketamine and fentanyl when administered intravenously (IV) for the indication of severe pain. METHODS: This was a retrospective, observational review of prehospital adult patients (≥18 years) who presented with severe pain (numeric rating scale, 7-10) and were treated solely with either low-dose ketamine IV or fentanyl IV between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2016...

Systemic inflammation and disease activity seem to contribute to excessive prevalence of cardiovascular (CV) diseases (CVDs) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The objective of the study was to assess chosen CV parameters in RA patients who have continuous low disease activity. The study group consisted of 70 RA patients without known CVD and 33 healthy controls, of a comparable age. All RA patients had continued low disease activity (DAS28 ≤ 3.2) from 2 to 7 years. The groups were assessed for: blood pressure, serum amino-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), carotid intima media thickness (cIMT), electrocardiography (ECG), ejection fraction (EJ) and diastolic dysfunction (E/A ratio) in echocardiography...

OBJECTIVE: The HEART Pathway risk prediction tool (HEART score plus serial troponin measures at 0 and 3 hours post-presentation) is used to identify low-risk patients with chest pain who may qualify for safe, early discharge. We calculated the percentage of patients in our observation unit that qualified as low risk using HEART Pathway, as well as their associated outcomes. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed charts on 966 consecutive patients admitted to our observation unit for chest pain (January 2015 to February 2016); HEART Pathway scores were retrospectively calculated and serial cardiac troponin values logged...

Objectives: We investigated the association of fluid overload and oxygenation in critically sick children, and their correlation with various outcomes (duration of ventilation, ICU stay, and mortality). We also assessed whether renal angina index (RAI) at admission can predict mortality or acute kidney injury (AKI) on day 3 after admission. Design and setting: Prospective study, pediatric intensive care in a tertiary hospital. Duration: June 2013-June 2014. Patients: Patients were included if they needed invasive mechanical ventilation for >24 h and had an indwelling arterial catheter...

Background: Histamine H2 receptor activation promotes cardiac fibrosis and apoptosis in mice. However, the potential effectiveness of histamine H2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) in humans with heart failure is largely unknown. We examined the association between H2RA initiation and all-cause mortality among patients with heart failure. Methods: Using Danish medical registries, we conducted a nationwide population-based active-comparator cohort study of new users of H2RAs and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) after first-time hospitalization for heart failure during the period 1995-2014...

The prognosis of patients with HFrEF remains poor despite the use of current medical and device therapies. Preclinical studies of HFrEF using IC delivery of RT-100, a replication deficient, E1/E3-deleted human adenovirus 5 encoding human AC6 was associated with favorable effects on LV function and remodeling. A recent multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2 study demonstrated the safety of IC delivery of RT-100 in HFrEF patients and potential efficacy at the higher doses. This phase 2 dose finding study, which included doses not expected to be effective, identified a potential reduction in congestive heart failure admissions in the AC6-treated group one year after randomization...

Objective Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is associated with several clinical syndromes, one of which is acute non-ST-segment ACS (NSTE-ACS). S100A1 is a calcium-dependent regulator of heart contraction and relaxation. We investigated the association between the serum S100A1 level and the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score in patients with NSTE-ACS and the potential of using the serum S100A1 level to predict the 30-day prognosis of NSTE-ACS. Methods The clinical characteristics of 162 patients with NSTE-ACS were analyzed to determine the GRACE score...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The Microcirculatory Shock Occurrence in Acutely Ill Patients (micro-SOAP) study investigated associations of microcirculation and mortality. Risk stratification in critically ill patients is of utmost interest. Established score such as APACHE2 (Acute Physiology And Chronic Health Evaluation 2) are relatively complex and might therefore be of limited use. Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) was described to be associated with mortality in various diseases. We therefore aimed (i) to evaluate BUN for prediction of mortality in a cohort of critically ill patients and (ii) to investigate associations of BUN with microcirculation...

A higher dietary inflammatory index (DII®) score is associated with inflammation and incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD). We hypothesized that a Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) intervention would reduce DII score. We assessed dietary data from a randomized controlled trial comparing 6-month MedDiet versus low-fat diet intervention, in patients with CHD. We aimed to determine the DII scores of the prescribed diets' model meal plans, followed by whether dietary intervention led to lower (i.e., more anti-inflammatory) DII scores and consequently lower high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and interleukin-6 (hs-IL-6)...
