New Tools Determine Risk of CHD in Diabetics

2016 02 Feb

According to a recent report, new tools could be used for improving the treatment of heart disease in patients with type 2 diabetes. This could prove to be quite significant since nearly two-thirds of deaths among people with type 2 diabetes is related to cardiovascular disease. The report is published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology:... Read more

Selenide Protects Heart Muscle Following Cardiac Arrest

2015 14 Apr

According to a new preclinical study by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, damage to heart muscle from insufficient blood supply during cardiac arrest and reperfusion injury after blood flow is restored can be reduced by 90 percent if selenide is administered intravenously in the wake of an attack. The findings have been published... Read more

Study: Hyperoxia Alters Microcirculation in Healthy Volunteers

2015 19 Jan

Hyperoxia may induce vasoconstriction and alter endothelial function. However, recent data suggest a potential therapeutic role of normobaric hyperoxia (NH) in sepsis and cerebral ischaemia.In this study, researchers evaluated the effects of NH on the microcirculation in 40 healthy adult volunteers using side-stream dark field (SDF) video-microscopy...

Cerebral Oxyhaemoglobin: a Useful Indicator of Neuroprotection

2014 31 Aug

A prospective, multi-centre, cohort study was conducted to test whether regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) predicts neurological outcomes after out-of-hospitals cardiac arrest (OHCA). The primary goal of the study was to learn more about oxyhaemoglobin (oxy-Hb) levels in the cerebral tissues during the development of anoxic and ischaemic brain... Read more
