Joslin Research Ties Autoimmunity-Associated Heart Dilation to Potential Heart-Failure Risk in Type 1 Diabetes
Joslin Diabetes Center

There's a higher case fatality rate in type 1 than type 2 diabetes, which suggests different mechanisms for heart failure might be involved in type 1 diabetes.” Given the burden of heart failure in type 1 diabetes, the early identification of patients at particular risk is of importance.

Estudio de Mayo Clinic descubre cómo las células madre reparan los daños por un ataque cardíaco
Mayo Clinic

Los investigadores de Mayo Clinic descubrieron cuáles son los mecanismos de recuperación que las células madre activan después de un ataque cardíaco. Las células madre restablecieron el músculo cardíaco al estado que tenía antes del ataque al corazón, lo cual, a su vez, facilitó un diagrama del posible funcionamiento de estas células.

Las personas sin hogar que sufren un ataque cardíaco reciben menos tratamiento en el hospital y muestran tasas mayores de reingreso
Mayo Clinic

El sinhogarismo se ha convertido en una crisis social y un problema de la salud pública en todo el mundo y afecta a gente de toda edad. La mayoría de las personas sin hogar están en desventaja porque tienen menos recursos y, posiblemente, no cuentan con un buen seguro de salud.

Six ways home-based cardiac rehab keeps patients safe, healthy during COVID-19
Mayo Clinic

COVID-19 presents evolving challenges to health care, in part because it is a new viral disease. People do not have natural immunity and a vaccine hasn't yet been developed.Patients with heart disease are at increased risk of cardiac-related complications and death, and are more likely to develop severe complications from COVID-19.

Device That Tracks Location of Nurses Repurposed to Record Patient Mobility
Johns Hopkins Medicine

By repurposing badges originally designed to locate nurses and other hospital staff, Johns Hopkins Medicine scientists say they can precisely monitor how patients in the hospital are walking outside of their rooms, a well-known indicator and contributor to recovery after surgery.

Atomic Magnetometer Points to Better Picture of Heart Conductivity
American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Mapping the electrical conductivity of the heart would be a valuable tool in diagnosis and disease management, but doing so would require invasive procedures, which aren’t capable of directly mapping dielectric properties. Significant advances have recently been made that leverage atomic magnetometers to provide a direct picture of electric conductivity of biological tissues, and in Applied Physics Letters, new work in quantum sensors points to ways such technology could be used to examine the heart.
