Abstract: 18987: Hall F, Core 4, Poster Board: 4051 Sudden cardiac arrest isn't always so sudden, according to research presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2013. In a study of middle-age men in Portland, Oregon, more than half had possible warning signs up to a month before their hearts stopped abruptly. Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops due to a failure in its electrical system. Patients can sometimes survive if they receive CPR immediately and...

A new study highlights the importance of exercise and physical fitness among people with stable coronary artery disease. Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Henry Ford Hospital found that higher levels of physical fitness lower the risk of having heart attacks and increase survival in those with coronary artery disease, whether or not they have had a procedure to open up their blocked arteries. "In our study, the patients who were most fit had a 75 percent...

'Hybrid procedure' combining minimally invasive corornary artery bypass surgery (CABG) with percutaneous coronary intervention is feasible and safe compared with traditional CABG A hybrid approach to treating coronary artery disease that involves a "hybrid procedure" combining a minimally invasive bypass surgery with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was found to be feasible and safe in a clinical trial. This is the first randomized study of the technique. These findings were...

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online New research from John Hopkins University has found that young or middle-aged women with type 2 diabetes carry much greater risk for coronary artery disease than was previously understood. As a general rule, women under the age of 60 are much less likely to have coronary artery disease than men of the same age. Unfortunately, for women of the same age who have type 2 diabetes, their risk of coronary artery disease quadruples,...

Cardiac Stress Test
2012-11-18 19:30:13

The cardiac stress test is a diagnostic test used in Cardiac pathology for the purpose of patient diagnosis. It measures the heart’s function while placing a heavier workload on the heart. The cardiologist cannot be at the patient’s side while at work, under stress, during a workout or pushed to the limit so this test mimics those activities in a controlled setting. How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
