Large Scale Study: Outcomes for Long QT Syndrome Patients Treated at Specialty Center Are Better

Sudden cardiac death, and episodes of fainting and seizures from long QT syndrome are significantly lower than previously thought when patients are diagnosed and treated at a specialty center dedicated to the treatment of genetic heart rhythm diseases, according to Mayo Clinic research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This is one of the largest studies of long QT syndrome patients – people who have an inherited heart rhythm condition that can potentially cause fast and chaotic heartbeats – evaluated and treated at a single center to analyze these outcomes.

Emergency and Urgent Hospitalizations Linked to Accelerated Cognitive Decline in Older Adults

Emergency and urgent hospitalizations are associated with an increased rate of cognitive decline in older adults, report researchers at Rush University Medical Center. The results of their study suggest that hospitalization may be a more of a major risk factor for long-term cognitive decline in older adults than previously recognized.
