Cost-effectiveness and accuracy of exercise stress echocardiography in the non-invasive diagnosis of coronary heart disease.

Aust N Z J Med 2000 Dec;30(6):660-7

Epworth Hospital, Melbourne, Vic.

Background: Exercise stress echocardiography (ESE) is a more recent form of totally non-invasive stress testing which like exercise thallium SPECT scintigraphy (ETS) was developed to overcome the known limitations of ECG stress testing, namely the limited diagnostic accuracy and the inability of ECG stress testing to site the region of coronary artery disease (CAD) induced ischaemia.

Aims: To determine the sensitivity and specificity (and overall accuracy) of ESE in a group of patients referred for ETS imaging and compare the relative costs of each technique.

Methods: One hundred and fifteen patients referred for ETS consented to a simultaneous ESE. Read More

The potential impact of global environmental change on population health.

Authors:
S Tong

Aust N Z J Med 2000 Oct;30(5):618-25

Centre for Public Health Research, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane.

Due to rapid industrial changes and increased pressure of people on fragile ecosystems, large-scale environmental perturbations have been occurring on Earth. Major current environmental problems that can be expected to have a substantial effect on human health include human-induced climate change and stratosphere ozone depletion, because they threaten the ecological support systems on which human life depends. The most serious potential consequence of global environmental change is the erosion of Earth's life-support systems. Read More

Aust N Z J Med 2000 Oct;30(5):573-7

Methods: One thousand and twenty-two patients from the multi-ethnic urban catchment area of Fremantle Hospital in Western Australia were studied. Read More
