Heart Rate, Baroreflex Sensitivity and Cardiovascular Morbidity and Mortality in the Population
The aim of the present PPS3 study is (1) to assess the determinants of the regulation of heart rate and blood pressure variations and carotid properties (under different physiologic stimulations) and (2) to evaluate the respective contribution of heart rate, blood pressure variations and carotid properties to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality including sudden death during 10 years at least in healthy considered subjects.
Overall, 10 000 men and women will be recruited during two years for an extensive clinical examination including a 2h holter ECG, a carotid doppler echo tracking, a step test, as well as blood and DNA collections. Thereafter, the cardiovascular morbidity and mortality of the participants will be followed up for 10 years at least.

Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
A venomous New World spider with an hourglass-shaped red mark on the abdomen.
A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.
The maximum exposure to a biologically active physical or chemical agent that is allowed during an 8-hour period (a workday) in a population of workers, or during a 24-hour period in the general population, which does not appear to cause appreciable harm, whether immediate or delayed for any period, in the target population.

Visual assessment of wall motion abnormalities (WMA) by 2-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) is the most semi-quantitative method used to detect coronary artery disease (CAD), but it carries many limi...
Echocardiography accounts for nearly half of all cardiac imaging techniques. It is a widely available and adaptable tool, as well as being a cost-effective and mainly a non-invasive test. In addition,...
Myocardial Deformation Imaging by Two-Dimensional Speckle-Tracking Echocardiography for Prediction of Global and Segmental Functional Changes after Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Comparison with Late Gadolinium Enhancement Cardiac Magnetic Resonance.
Myocardial deformation analysis by speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) has been shown to accurately predict viability in patients with chronic ischemic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. The aim o...
The feasibility and potential for the morphological and hemodynamic investigation of the heart has been increasing the use of the echocardiography in the research setting. Additionally, the developmen...
We present a novel approach for enhancing the quality of an image captured from a pair of flash and no-flash images. The main idea for image enhancement is to generate a new image by combining the amb...
