Scripps study suggests a shift in decades-old practice for detecting irregular heart beats. San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2014 Research by the Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) has found that a small adhesive wireless device worn on the chest for up to two weeks does a better job detecting abnormal and potentially dangerous heart rhythms than the Holter monitor, which is typically used for 24 hours and has been the standard of care for more than 50 years. The findings,...

Blood Test May Predict Heart Attack

A new blood test developed to predict heart attacks as much as two weeks in advance could be a savior to more than 2.5 million Americans at risk, medical news site MyHealthNewsDaily reports. The test, which measures circulating endothelial cells (CECs) in the blood, was used in a study of 50 patients led by Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) — a collaborative program between Scripps Health and the Scripps Research Institute (SRI). CECs in heart attack patients are...
