BACKGROUND: The designation of some cardiac-specific proteins as prognostic biomarkers in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations suggest that the process of exacerbation involves cardiomyocyte injury. Among these cardiac biomarkers, heart-type fatty acid binding protein (h-FABP) is considered a very sensitive diagnostic marker for cardiomyocyte injury and a prognostic marker in chronic heart failure. However, the prognostic usefulness of h-FABP in patients with COPD remains unclear...

BACKGROUND: Chest pain is a common presenting symptom in the emergency department (ED). Although the diagnostic workup for chest pain is well established, the best time to perform invasive cardiac catheterization in patients with low to moderate risk of coronary artery disease is still unclear, particularly if noninvasive tests such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) and nuclear myocardial perfusion scan show nonsignificant findings. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 52-year-old female who presented to the ED with acute-onset chest pain that had started early in the morning while she was sleeping...

BACKGROUND: Late-afternoon hospital discharges can lead to admission bottlenecks and negatively affect the flow of patients needing hospital admission. Delays in discharge are a prevalent health care problem and have been linked to increased length of stay, lower patient satisfaction scores, and adverse outcomes. As a result, hospitals are placing a renewed emphasis on early discharge as a way to reduce admission delays and achieve optimal patient flow. This study shows that the Model for Improvement (MFI) is an effective approach for complex improvement efforts...

We report a case of morning glory syndrome (MGS) associated with persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) and Peters' anomaly. A 2-day-old girl, born at term with a birth weight of 3,350 g was diagnosed with Peters' anomaly, cataract, microphthalmia, PHPV, and MGS. A right limbal lensectomy and vitrectomy with stalk cauterization was performed 8 days later. No early postoperative complication occurred, the family was discharged with advice on medication, and follow-up examination was scheduled. The case report reveals the coexistence of PHPV, Peters' anomaly, and MGS, which may suggest a genetic link...

Circadian peculiarities of HR regulation and functional capacities of the heart in WAG/Rij rats with genetically determined absence epilepsy are related to spike-wave activity of the brain. The number of spike-wave discharges (SWD) is maximum at night, early morning, and evening time and decreases to minimum at 08.00-16.00. At night, functional capacities of the heart are reduced and stress test at night induces ischemic changes in the myocardium at a lower functional load than in the daytime (low level of SWD activity)...

We present a case of allergic reaction to patent blue in a patient who underwent excision of sentinel lymph node associated with segmental breast resection. About 20min after the dye injection, the patient developed hypotension (BP=70×30mmHg) associated with increased heart frequency. The patient was treated successfully with decreased inspired fraction of inhaled anesthetic and fluid replacement. At the end of the procedure, she presented with bluish urticarial-like plaques on the head, neck, upper limbs, and trunk; hydrocortisone was then used...
