High blood pressure in pregnancy remains, by its complications, the leading cause of morbidity as well as maternal and fetal mortality. The frequency (5 to 10% of pregnancies) and the potential severity of this disease, both for mother and child, encourage to standardize and to optimize our medical practices. If the short-term complications for the mother and child are well known, long-term ones for the mother are beginning to be better identified. The onset of hypertension during pregnancy disrupts the classic organization of healthcare and requires the intervention of the general practitioner and/or an obstetrician, a gynecologist, a midwife, a cardiologist, a nephrologist...

AIMS: Ideal cardiovascular health has been defined by the American Heart Association as the absence of disease and the presence of seven key health factors and behaviours. However, little is known about the mental aspects associated with ideal cardiovascular health metrics. The objective of this study was to assess the relationships between psychosocial risk factors and ideal cardiovascular health metrics among Finnish women at municipal work units. METHOD: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Finland among 732 female employees (mean±SD age 48±10 years) from ten work units in 2014...

Clinical rotations form the foundation of medical education. Medical students in the UK are offered conventional rotations such as cardiology, surgery, and psychiatry as part of their undergraduate curriculum, but a rotation in hematology is not currently mandatory. This paper explores the benefits of a compulsory hematology rotation, and suggests recommendations for its implementation in UK medical school curricula.

Cardiovascular screening in young athletes is widely recommended and routinely performed prior to participation in competitive sports. While there is general agreement that early detection of cardiac conditions at risk for sudden cardiac arrest and death (SCA/D) is an important objective, the optimal strategy for cardiovascular screening in athletes remains an issue of considerable debate. At the centre of the controversy is the addition of a resting ECG to the standard preparticipation evaluation using history and physical examination...

PNH Education and Study Group (PESG) have been established in December 2013 as a non-profit, independent, medical organization www.pesg.org. Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a multi-systemic disease that should be treated with a multidisciplinary approach. Patients may apply to the clinics other than the hematology due to variability and diversity of clinical findings which lower the rate of diagnosis due to low awareness about PNH. PNH might be overlooked and diagnosis might be delayed. Regarding these, PESG was established with the collaboration of Immunology, Cardiology, Thorax Diseases (Pulmonology), Neurology, Gastroenterology, General Surgery and Urology specialists in addition to hematologists dealing with PNH...

Hospital readmissions are common and costly and, in some cases, may be related to problems with care processes. We sought to reduce readmissions after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a large tertiary care facility through programs to target vulnerabilities predischarge, after discharge, and during re-presentation to the emergency department. During initial hospitalization, we assessed patients' readmission risk with a validated risk score and used a discharge checklist to ensure access to appropriate medications and close follow-up for high-risk patients...

BACKGROUND: Even though struggling with similar symptom burden, patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) receive less palliative care than patients suffering from malignant diseases. Researchers have found that this might be related to lack of knowledge about palliative care, insufficient interprofessional communication as well as the cyclic course of disease which makes accurate prognosis difficult. However, research findings have shown that patients with CHF benefit from palliative care...

Inpatients with heart failure take a number of high-risk drugs such as anti-thrombotic and anti-arrhythmic drugs, in addition to other drug types, including diuretics and cardioprotective agents. Pharmacists should support the pharmacological management of these patients by evaluating their clinical condition and laboratory data, due to the frequency of renal failure. Furthermore, it is known that poor adherence to a drug regimen is one of the aggravating factors for heart failure. It is necessary to conduct regular patient education to facilitate early hospital discharge and to prevent the recurrence of heart failure...
