Sleep-disordered breathing is a highly prevalent medical condition, which if undiagnosed leads to increased morbidity and mortality, particularly related to increased incidence of cardiovascular events. It is therefore imperative that we identify patient population at high risk for sleep apnea and refer them to the appropriate therapy as early as possible. Up-to-date there is no management guideline specifically geared towards cardiac patients. Thus, we propose a (SAP) Sleep Apnea Pathway to correctly identify and triage these patients to the appropriate therapy...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac rhythm disturbance encountered in clinical practice, and its prevalence is increasing as the population ages. The American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, and the European Society of Cardiology established guidelines for the management of patients with AF. Atrial flutter (Afl) is less common and is often associated with or preceded by AF or occurs in an isolated pattern. A major limitation of the currently published guidelines for the management of patients with AF and Afl is their complexity, the fact that official guidelines are published separately for each of these arrhythmias, and that they were published several years ago...

The PREDICTS project-Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)-has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples of biodiversity from multiple sites that differ in the nature or intensity of human impacts relating to land use. We have used this evidence base to develop global and regional statistical models of how local biodiversity responds to these measures. We describe and make freely available this 2016 release of the database, containing more than 3...

Current guidelines recommend against revascularization of the noninfarct artery during the index percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in hemodynamically stable patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This was based largely on observational studies with few data coming from randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Recently, several small-to-moderate sized RCTs have provided data, suggesting that a multivessel revascularization approach may be appropriate. We performed a meta-analysis of RCTs comparing multivessel percutaneous coronary intervention (MV PCI) versus culprit vessel-only revascularization (COR) during primary PCI in patients with STEMI and multivessel coronary disease (MVCD)...

Lamotrigine overdose usually follows a benign pattern, and the majority of cases reported involve a co-ingestant. Prior reports have suggested the possible use of intravenous lipid emulsion in cases of severe sodium channel blockade. We describe the electrocardiographic changes in a massive lamotrigine overdose treated with intravenous lipid emulsion. A 36-year-old male with bipolar disorder ingested 13.5 g of lamotrigine in a suicidal attempt. The lamotrigine level was 78.0 μg/mL. Comprehensive drug screen was negative for all screened compounds...

BACKGROUND: Recent reports suggest altered antithrombotic efficacy and higher risk of bleeding with new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients with renal insufficiency. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the efficacy and safety with recommended doses of NOAC compared with conventional treatment in patients with renal insufficiency. METHODS: PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, EBSCO, Web of Science, and CINAHL databases were searched from January 1, 2001 through March 23, 2014...

The workup of moderate-to-large pericardial effusion should focus on its hemodynamic impact and potential cause. A structured approach to diagnostic evaluation of pericardial effusion is needed. We retrospectively studied a contemporary cohort of 103 patients with moderate-to-large pericardial effusion hospitalized at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital Center from July 2009 till August 2013. Diagnosis of pericardial effusion was independently ascertained by chart review. We applied a stepwise parsimonious approach to establish the cause of pericardial effusion...

Current guidelines recommend 12 months of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in the absence of increased bleeding risk. Studies have suggested that early discontinuation of DAPT can result in an increased risk of stent thrombosis. However, given the potential for major bleeding, the optimal duration of DAPT after DES implantation remains uncertain. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, and ClinicalTrials.gov databases from inception until October 2013 for randomized controlled trials that compared shorter versus longer DAPT duration after DES implantation...

Effectiveness of new oral anticoagulants (NOAC) in patients with cancer is not clearly defined. There remain concerns of doubtful benefit and chances of potential harm with newer agents. In this meta-analysis, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of NOAC in patients with cancer. PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Web of Science, and CINAHL databases were searched from January 01, 2001 through February 28, 2013. Randomized controlled trials reporting efficacy and safety data of NOACs (rivaroxaban, dabigatran, and apixaban) with control (low-molecular-weight heparin/vitamin K antagonists/placebo) for patients with cancer were included...

The number of cases of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is estimated to be 300,000/year in the United States. Two landmark studies published in 2002 demonstrated that therapeutic hypothermia decreased mortality and improved neurological outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Our institutional pathway for the management of survivors of cardiac arrest stresses teamwork involving multiple disciplines, including cardiology, critical care, nursing, neurology, infectious diseases, physical therapy, social work, and pastoral care...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown that hypertension is inversely correlated with bone mineral density (BMD) as determined by dual energy x-ray absorptiometery (DXA) in different ethnic groups. But in most published studies, either the sample size was small or the study was limited by different measurement methods. These limitations leave this association controversial and inconclusive. The current study utilizes a sample of African American females referred for clinical screening of osteoporosis in our center to find out if any association of high blood pressure and BMD in this ethnic group exists...

Subacute (medical) tamponade develops over a period of days or even weeks. Previous studies have shown that subacute tamponade is uncommonly associated with hypotension. On the contrary, many of those patients are indeed hypertensive at initial presentation. We sought to determine the prevalence and predictors of hypertensive cardiac tamponade and hemodynamic response to pericardial effusion drainage. We conducted a retrospective study of patients who underwent pericardial effusion drainage for subacute pericardial tamponade...

In this case, uncharacteristic clinical and laboratory findings led to an unanticipated diagnosis for a 24-year-old woman admitted for new-onset heart failure with features suggesting cardiac tamponade. Concomitant diagnosis of progressive mixed connective tissue disease associated with severe hypothyroidism was made. Despite early recognition (based on clinical and pathologic features) and rapid management (with glucocorticoids, thyroxine, metoprolol, lisinopril, furosemide, and milrinone), she deteriorated and died within 4 weeks...
