More Evidence: Untreated Sleep Apnea Shown to Raise Metabolic and Cardiovascular Stress

Sleep apnea, left untreated for even a few days, can increase blood sugar and fat levels, stress hormones and blood pressure, according to a new study of sleeping subjects. A report of the study’s findings, published in the August issue of The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, adds further support for the consistent use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), a machine that increases air pressure in the throat to keep the airway open during sleep.

'Open Gym' Format Shortens Waiting Time for Cardiac Rehab

Changing from scheduled appointments to an "open gym" format can reduce waiting times for cardiac rehabilitation, reports a study in the September/October issue of Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

Tick Saliva May Hold Potential Treatment for Reducing HIV-linked Heart Disease Risk

Scientists may have found a clue to why people living with HIV have double the likelihood of developing heart disease. The findings, made by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Vaccine Research and National Institutes of Health, also show that an experimental drug may hold promise as a potential treatment.

Electrical Nerve-Block Research Used in Pain Management Takes Aim at Asthma, Heart Failure

Biomedical engineering researchers at Case Western Reserve University are refining more than 15 years of work on an electrical nerve-block implant, focusing their next step on new applications related to treating asthma and heart failure.

Compared to people who live in predominantly white neighborhoods, those who live in predominantly black areas are much less likely to receive CPR or defibrillation from a bystander when their heart suddenly stops beating while they are at home or out in the community.

Sanford Researcher Awarded More Than $2 Million Grant

A scientist at Sanford Research studying lung development and disease in premature babies has received a $2,041,195 grant over five years from the National Institutes of Health’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Peter Vitiello, Ph.D., will study how molecular pathways contribute to lung development and disease in premature babies.

Federal Preemption of Taxes on State and Local Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Is Not Warranted

Federal and state government can alter or hinder state and local activity through a legal mechanism called preemption – when a higher level of government blocks the action of a lower level of government. A new study evaluates whether it could it be used to block taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages.

Turtles May Hold the Key to Protecting Human Hearts after Heart Attack

In humans, going just minutes without oxygen—such as during a heart attack or stroke—can cause devastating damage to the heart. Researchers looking to freshwater turtles to understand the mechanisms that protect them from heart damage after long hibernation periods will present their findings at the Physiological Bioenergetics: Mitochondria from Bench to Bedside conference in San Diego.
