Cardiologists and nephrologists – the importance of collaboration

Bridging the gap between health problems of the heart and kidneys continues to be a talking point amongst specialists. Across both fields, there is clear evidence and recognition that kidney function can affect cardiac health. Kidney patients are vulnerable to a higher level of cardiovascular events as a risk factor and vice versa. Over half of all heart failure patients have moderate or severe chronic kidney disease. Both conditions are connected to similar risk factors, including obesity, diab...

Not getting enough sleep seems to be even more deadly than we thought, new studies show

A trio of new studies show that too little or too much sleep is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Sleeping less than five hours per night raises the risk for a heart attack or stroke by about the same degree as smoking does, according one study in older men. This adds to a significant body of evidence that suggests regular sleep is essential for health. Most of us know that not getting enough sleep is bad for us. Yet many people believe their busy lives require th...

Oxygen therapy for patients suffering from a heart attack does not prevent heart failure

Oxygen therapy does not prevent the development of heart failure. Neither does it reduce the long-term risk of dying for patients with suspected heart attack. This has been proven for the first time by researchers at Karolinska Institutet as a result of a major Swedish study. The study is to be presented at the European Society of Cardiology's (ESC) cardiology congress in Munich and published at the same time in the journal Circulation.

A step in the light direction for arrhythmia

Each successful beat of the heart is the result of a well-timed electrical orchestra, headed by a conductor tasked with tirelessly maintaining this life-sustaining rhythm. The conductor of this silent symphony is the heart’s natural pacemaker cells, which synchronize the muscular contractions necessary to pump blood throughout the body. Cardiac rhythm was described as early as 2,500 years ago in the writings of Chinese physician of legend, Bian Que. Similarly, the influence of electricity on hea...

Two anticlotting medicines better at reducing bleeding risk than triple therapy

Using just two anticlotting medicines for patients who have atrial fibrillation and have had a stent placed in a heart artery is safer than using the current standard treatment of three medications, according to a new study presented by Brigham and Women's Hospital cardiologist Christopher Cannon, MD, at the European Society of Cardiology and published simultaneously in The New England Journal of Medicine.
