Changes in the Cardiac Autonomic Regulation in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Adhd) (Report)

Changes in the Cardiac Autonomic Regulation in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Adhd) (Report)

Background & objectives: ADHD is one of the most common mental disorders among children. We hypothesized that ADHD is associated with the impairment of the cardiac autonomic regulation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cardiac autonomic regulation in children with ADHD at the rest and during orthostasis using short-term heart rate variability […]

Measurement of Functional Capacity Requirements of Police Officers to Aid in Development of an Occupation-Specific Cardiac Rehabilitation Training Program.

Measurement of Functional Capacity Requirements of Police Officers to Aid in Development of an Occupation-Specific Cardiac Rehabilitation Training Program.

Police work involves exposure to a broad range of emotionally harrowing incidents and is often cited as one of the most stressful occupations (1). Traumatic events such as shootings, severe motor vehicle accidents, and incidents involving the death of a child are all ranked as extremely stressful by law enforcement personnel (2-4). Given the overwhelming […]

Postoperative Glycemic Control in Cardiac Surgery Patients (Pharmacology Notes) (Report)

Postoperative Glycemic Control in Cardiac Surgery Patients (Pharmacology Notes) (Report)

Blood glucose management in critically ill patients remains an ongoing controversy. In recent years, clinical trials evaluating blood glucose control in critically ill patients advocated for intense blood glucose management, with target blood glucose levels between 80 and 110 mg/dL (1). Intense blood glucose control resulted in a reduction in morbidity and mortality in the […]

Recognizing the Deteriorating Patient Prior to Cardiac Arrest: Predictive Criteria and Risk Factors/Kardiyak Arrest Oncesinde Kotulesen Hastayi Tanimak: Ongoru Kriterleri Ve Risk Faktorleri (Report)

Recognizing the Deteriorating Patient Prior to Cardiac Arrest: Predictive Criteria and Risk Factors/Kardiyak Arrest Oncesinde Kotulesen Hastayi Tanimak: Ongoru Kriterleri Ve Risk Faktorleri (Report)

Kardiyak Arrest ve Sagkalim Zinciri Kardiyak arrest, “kalbin mekanik aktivitesinin durmasi ve bunun dolasimin bulgularinin olmamasiyla kanitlanmasi” olarak tanimlanmaktadir (1). Arrest, bir cok degisik patofizyolojik yolagin ortak bir sonlanim noktasidir. Arrest sonrasinda, kardiyopulmoner resusitasyon (KPR) uygulanan bir hastada hem arrestin ortaya cikisini hem de KPR’nin sonucunu ongorecek risk faktorleri ve kriterler geriye donuk olarak saptanabilir. […]

Sildenafil--a Possible Treatment for Acute Pulmonary Hypertension During Cardiac Surgery (Clinical Report)

Sildenafil–a Possible Treatment for Acute Pulmonary Hypertension During Cardiac Surgery (Clinical Report)

Primary pulmonary hypertension has an annual incidence of 1 to 2 cases per million people in the general population and an onset in the third to fourth decades of life (1). It is a progressive disease that affects women twice as frequently as men; the mean survival time from diagnosis is 2.5 years (2). Patients […]

Increased Total Heart Rate Variability and Enhanced Cardiac Vagal Autonomic Activity in Healthy Humans with Sinus Bradycardia (Clinical Report)

Increased Total Heart Rate Variability and Enhanced Cardiac Vagal Autonomic Activity in Healthy Humans with Sinus Bradycardia (Clinical Report)

Sinus bradycardia can be defined as a sinus rhythm with a resting heart rate (HR) of 60 beats per minute (bpm) or less. However, few patients actually become symptomatic until their heart rate drops to 50 bpm (1). That is, even while resting HR tends to diminish with age (2), physiological regulatory mechanisms maintain normal […]
