According to Todd Russell, MD, FACS, a ProMedica Physician with Jobst Vascular Institute, Rita’s was a silent but very serious risk. He explained, “Her abdominal aortic aneurysm was asymptomatic [showing no symptoms], it was an enlargement of her artery and because it was enlarging significantly, there was a risk the artery wall could become very weak and rupture.”

In the most comprehensive review to date of studies on subjective well-being, a team of researchers conclude there is a connection between happiness and health in some instances — from better wound healing and immune system function to emotional resilience. The researchers say what’s needed now is more work to unravel when, how and what types of subjective well-being are most influential.

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.
