CARDIAC AUTONOMIC TESTING AND TREATING HEART DISEASE. “A CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE” 2 OF 2

ABSTRACT Background Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major health concern, affecting nearly half the middle-age population and responsible for nearly one-third of all deaths. Clinicians have several major responsibilities beyond diagnosing CHD, such as risk stratification of patients for major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and treating risks, as well as the patient. This secondContinue reading “CARDIAC AUTONOMIC TESTING AND TREATING HEART DISEASE. “A CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE” 2 OF 2”

NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM AND HEMODYNAMICS OF PATIENTS WITH BLUNT AND PENETRATING TRAUMA

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND To describe early effects of sympathetic (SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) activities measured by heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate variabilities simultaneously with noninvasive hemodynamic patterns in patients with blunt and penetrating trauma. METHODS Descriptive study of 168 monitored trauma patients in a level I university-run trauma service. We studied HR andContinue reading “NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM AND HEMODYNAMICS OF PATIENTS WITH BLUNT AND PENETRATING TRAUMA”
