Preoperative Statin Therapy Protects Elective Aneurysm Patients

Preoperative statin therapy has a protective effect on patients undergoing elective abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair that reduces risk and subsequent total hospital costs according to a new study from researchers at the East Carolina Heart Institute in Greenville, North Carolina.

Formation of Plexiform Lesions in Experimental Severe Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

A new preclinical model of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) may lead to improved research and ultimately better therapies for this life-threatening problem, according to its developers, researchers at the University of South Alabama.

CPAP Use Reduces Incidence of Cardiovascular Events and Hypertension in OSA Patients

In non-sleepy patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) can reduce the incidence of cardiovascular events and hypertension, according to researchers from Spain.

Gene Therapy May Be Effective in Treating PAH

Gene therapy has been shown to have positive effects in rat models of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), according to researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia.

Hospital Costs Soon Run Higher For Self-Discharged Cardiovascular Patients

A University of Maryland School of Pharmacy study found that younger cardiovascular patients, as well as males, singles, and uninsured patients, are more likely to discharge themselves from the hospital against medical advice.

Early vs. Late Tracheotomy Does Not Reduce Mortality in ICU Patients

Early tracheotomy in ICU patients on mechanical ventilation (MV) did not reduce mortality when compared to later tracheotomy in a study of cardiac surgery patients requiring prolonged ventilation in a Paris study.

Heavy Exercise May Produce Asthma-Like Symptoms Even in Healthy Children

Children who undergo brief periods of intense exercise may exhibit lung dysfunction or other symptoms similar to those experienced by asthma patients, even when no history of asthma exists, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of California’s Irvine and Miller Children’s Hospital.

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (Ipf), Therapy

Hope for Patients with Mild Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

A new therapy shows promise for patients with mild idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. According to researchers in Japan, inhaled N-acetylcysteine (NAC) monotherapy preserves more lung function in some idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients than no therapy.

Kidney Function and Damage Markers Predict Mortality Risk

Tests of kidney function and damage predict the risk of death from cardiovascular diseases and all causes.

EMS Can Prevent Limb and Respiratory Muscle Weakness in ICU Patients

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) can prevent critical illness polyneuromyopathy (CIPNM), according to Greek researchers. CIPNM is an acquired limb and respiratory muscle weakness that is a common and serious problem among intensive care unit patients, and can result in prolonged ICU and hospital stay. EMS can also shorten the duration of weaning from mechanical ventilation and the length of ICU stay.
