Prehospital Sinus Node Dysfunction and Asystole in a Previously Healthy Patient With COVID-19.

Prehosp Emerg Care 2021 May 3:1-4. Epub 2021 May 3.

Montgomery County Hospital District, EMS, Conroe, 77304 United States.

We report a case of a previously healthy 47-year-old female with syncope due to multiple episodes of nodal dysfunction and asystole. During these brief episodes, she was hypoxic in the mid-80's as a result of COVID-19 pneumonia. The patient was admitted and treated for viral pneumonia and found to have normal electrocardiograms (ECG's), normal troponin levels and a normal echocardiogram during her hospital stay. Read More

Left Bundle Branch Pacing: Current Knowledge and Future Prospects.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2021 23;8:630399. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Cardiology, The Second Affiliate Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China.

Cardiac pacing is an effective therapy for treating patients with bradycardia due to sinus node dysfunction or atrioventricular block. However, traditional right ventricular apical pacing (RVAP) causes electric and mechanical dyssynchrony, which is associated with increased risk for atrial arrhythmias and heart failure. Therefore, there is a need to develop a physiological pacing approach that activates the normal cardiac conduction and provides synchronized contraction of ventricles. Read More

Adenosine and neurohumoral syncope.

Minerva Med 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Laboratory of Biochemistry, Timone Hospital and C2VN INSERM, INRAE, Aix Marseille University, Marseille, France.

Either central or peripheral baroreceptor reflex abnormalities and/or alterations in neurohumoral mechanisms play a pivotal role in the genesis of neurally mediated syncope. Thus, improving our knowledge of the biochemical mechanisms underlying specific forms of neurally mediated syncope (more properly termed 'neurohumoral syncope') might allow the development of new therapies that are effective in this specific subgroup. A low-adenosine phenotype of neurohumoral syncope has recently been identified. Read More

Chronic perinatal hypoxia delays cardiac maturation in a mouse model for cyanotic congenital heart disease.

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 2021 05 19;320(5):H1873-H1886. Epub 2021 Mar 19.

Children's National Heart Institute, Children's National Hospital, Washington, District of Columbia.

Compared with acyanotic congenital heart disease (CHD), cyanotic CHD has an increased risk of lifelong mortality and morbidity. These adverse outcomes may be attributed to delayed cardiomyocyte maturation, since the transition from a hypoxic fetal milieu to oxygen-rich postnatal environment is disrupted. We established a rodent model to replicate hypoxic myocardial conditions spanning perinatal development, and tested the hypothesis that chronic hypoxia impairs cardiac development. Read More

Relative Sinus Bradycardia: An Unexpected Finding in Preeclampsia With Acute Pulmonary Edema.

Cureus 2021 Feb 10;13(2):e13262. Epub 2021 Feb 10.

Cardiac Arrhythmia Center, Cardiovascular Division, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA.

Preeclampsia is a multifactorial pregnancy-specific syndrome, which can result in significant alterations in cardiovascular hemodynamics. We report an observation of unexpected relative bradycardia in a previously healthy woman who presented with postpartum preeclampsia and acute pulmonary edema. We observed an increase in heart rate following normalization of blood pressure, which suggested that the initial slower than expected heart rate may reflect a baroreceptor response to hypertension.
