Department of Cardiology, Beijing Key Laboratory of Early Prediction and Intervention of Acute Myocardial Infarction, Center for Cardiovascular Translational Research, Peking University People's Hospital, Xizhimen South Rd No.11, Xicheng District, Beijing, 100044, China.

The purpose of the present study is to develop and validate a prediction tool to identify patients who refuse to receive percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) rapidly. We developed a risk stratification model using the derivation cohort of 288 patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in our hospital and validated it in a prospective cohort of 115 patients. There were 52 (18. Read More

A combined care model using early access to specialists off-hours to reduce cardiac admissions.

Intern Emerg Med 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Division of Cardiology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Despite the implementation of diagnostic and treatment algorithms for many common cardiovascular (CV) complaints, identifying low- and intermediate-risk cardiac patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) who could be managed without hospital admission remains difficult. We hypothesized that the presence of an attending cardiologist in the ED after normal working hours would decrease the proportion of these patients admitted to the hospital. We conducted a retrospective study of patients seen in the ED with cardiac diagnoses identified by ICD-9 codes during the time period when the cardiologist was available (6 p. Read More

Is social support associated with hypertension control among Ghanaian migrants in Europe and non-migrants in Ghana? The RODAM study.

Intern Emerg Med 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Department of Public Health, Amsterdam University Medical Centres, Amsterdam Public Health (APH) Research Institute, University of Amsterdam, Meibergdreef 9, 1105 AZ, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Hypertension (HTN) control is crucial in preventing HTN-related complications such as stroke and coronary heart disease. Yet, HTN control remains suboptimal particularly among sub-Saharan African (SSA) populations partly due to poor self-management. Self-management of HTN is influenced by social support, but the evidence on the role of social support on HTN control particularly among SSA populations is limited. Read More

Thyroid hormones modulate uric acid metabolism in patients with recent onset subclinical hypothyroidism by improving insulin sensitivity.

Division of Endocrine and Metabolic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Some evidence suggests a relationship between thyroid dysfunction and uric acid (UA) metabolism, but the potential influential role of thyroid hormones on UA metabolism is still debated. This report was designed to evaluate the influential role of levothyroxine (L-T4) replacement therapy on circulating levels of UA in patients with recent onset post-thyroidectomy subclinical hypothyroidism. Circulating levels of thyroid hormones, UA and other metabolic parameters were assessed in 155 recently thyroidectomized patients (131 females, mean age 51. Read More

Hyperuricemia is an emerging risk factor for the development of heart failure (HF) and is associated with a worsen prognosis of the disease. The effect of urate lowering drugs (ULT) and, in particular, the xanthine oxidase inhibitor in patients with HF is controversial.

A lower impact of an acute exposure to electronic cigarette aerosols than to cigarette smoke in human organotypic buccal and small airway cultures was demonstrated using systems toxicology assessment.

Intern Emerg Med 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Philip Morris International R&D, Philip Morris Products S.A., Quai Jeanrenaud 5, 2000, Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

In the context of tobacco harm-reduction strategy, the potential reduced impact of electronic cigarette (EC) exposure should be evaluated relative to the impact of cigarette smoke exposure. We conducted a series of in vitro studies to compare the biological impact of an acute exposure to aerosols of "test mix" (flavors, nicotine, and humectants), "base" (nicotine and humectants), and "carrier" (humectants) formulations using MarkTen EC devices with the impact of exposure to smoke of 3R4F reference cigarettes, at a matching puff number, using human organotypic air-liquid interface buccal and small airway cultures. We measured the concentrations of nicotine and carbonyls deposited in the exposure chamber after each exposure experiment. Read More

Causes and impact on survival of underuse of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers in heart failure.

Intern Emerg Med 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Genova, Genoa, Italy.

Guidelines recommend angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB) for treatment of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), but these medications are underprescribed in clinical practice. We reviewed the records of HF patients receiving a first visit in a tertiary outpatient clinic from January 1st 2004 to May 31st 2015, and selected those with a serum creatinine concentration (sCr) available at both the first and last visit and < 3.5 mg/dL at baseline, and a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < 50% at the first visit.

The Endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidase protein 1 (ERAP1) trims N-terminal amino acids from epitope precursors for Major Histocompatibility Complex class I presentation. Genome-wide association studies demonstrated that ERAP1 gene single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with Behçet's syndrome (BS).

The role of laboratory medicine is essential in healthcare, since in vitro diagnostic testing represents now an unavoidable part of reasoning and clinical decision making. Laboratory tests are an essential part of most care pathways, aimed at optimizing resource utilization and improving patient outcome. The activity of laboratory professionals is interconnected with all medical disciplines, and provides a crucial support for ordering the right test, for the right patient and at the right time, but also helps interpreting and using laboratory data.

PMI R&D, Philip Morris Products S.A., Quai Jeanrenaud 5, 2000, Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

Smoking is the major cause of lung cancer. While the risk of lung cancer increases with the number of cigarettes smoked and the duration of smoking, it also decreases upon smoking cessation. The development of candidate modified risk tobacco products (cMRTP) is aimed at providing smokers who will not quit with alternatives to cigarettes that present less risk of harm and smoking-related disease.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty, University of Istanbul, 81310, Istanbul, Turkey.

Behçet syndrome (BS) is a multi-systemic complex disorder with unknown etiology and a unique geographic distribution. It could not be possible to include it into specific classification schemes and it is certainly not a uniform disease. Several cluster and association studies revealed that it has been composed of multiple phenotypes ascribing the principal problem such as skin-mucosa, joint, eye, vascular, neurological and gastrointestinal involvement.

However, researches from infected patients outside of ICU especially in Emergency Department (ED) drew contradictory conclusions on the prognostic value of qSOFA. This systematic review evaluated qSOFA as a prognostic marker of infected patients outside of ICU. Read More
