Cardiologic Check-ups.

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD), especially coronary artery disease (CAD), are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Elimination of modifiable risk factors has the potential to prevent up to 80 % of CVD. Therefore, disease prevention is based on the assessment of individual total CVD risk by using risk scores such as SCORE-algorithm that include the known main cardiovascular risk factors such as age, sex, smoking status, arterial hypertension und cholesterol.

Natriuretic peptide-guided treatment for the prevention of cardiovascular events in patients without heart failure.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Early intervention for those with high cardiovascular risk is crucial in improving patient outcomes. Traditional prevention strategies for CVD have focused on conventional risk factors, such as overweight, dyslipidaemia, diabetes, and hypertension, which may reflect the potential for cardiovascular insult. Natriuretic peptides (NPs), including B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide ...

In this document, recommendations were developed addressing two...

Cases in Precision Medicine: A Personalized Approach to Stroke and Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in Women.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States, and stroke is third. This article uses a case scenario to examine female sex-specific cardiovascular risk factors across the lifespan and describes a precision medicine-based approach to risk factor modification and primary prevention. It also presents recent updates to the role of genetic testing and polygenic risk scores for the prediction of stroke and cardiovascular disease.

Risk prediction of future cardiac arrest by evaluation of a genetic risk score alone and in combination with traditional risk factors.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a leading cause of death globally, commonly through sudden cardiac death. Cardiac arrest of cardiac origin (CA) is associated with a poor prognosis and there is a great need for risk assessment and intensified preventive actions. In this study we aim to assess if a genetic risk score for CHD, composed of 50 common CHD susceptibility variants (GRS), predicts CA and to evaluate a novel composite risk score including traditional risk factors as well as GRS.

Parenteral viral hepatitis infection risk assessment by teenagers.

Introduction: Developing strategy of parenteral viral hepatitis prevention among adolescents and youth is becoming an urgent issue. The aim of the research was to study the available data on the risk factors and ways of parenteral viral hepatitis transmission among adolescents and youth, as well as their attitude toward the problem of infection process spread by parenteral way and awareness of the personal risk of contamination.

National Analysis of Risk Assessment Content in Prenatal Records Across Canada.

Each Canadian province/territory has a distinct prenatal record form to guide maternity health care. Because there is no national oversight of these forms, little is known about how they compare regarding content on risk assessment for adverse perinatal outcomes. We cataloged and compared the risk factors that are captured on prenatal record forms across Canada. Nine out of 12 records included risk sections, with an average of 35 risk items. We identified 100 prenatal risk factors and categorized them as me...

Material-Psychosocial-Behavioral Aspects of Financial Hardship: A Conceptual Model for Cancer Prevention.

Risk of cancer increases with age; and socioeconomic factors have been shown to be relevant for (predictive of) cancer risk-related behaviors and cancer early detection and screening. Yet, much of this research has relied on traditional measures of socioeconomic status (SES) to assess socioeconomic circumstances, which limits our understanding of the various pathways through which the socioeconomic environment affects cancer risk. Research on hardship and health suggests that concepts of financial hardship ...

Expediting cataract surgery in New Zealand is cost-effective for falls prevention and improving vision-so what might be the next steps?

Multifactorial individual assessment with interventions tailored to the individual's risk factors can reduce the rate of falls and risk of fractures. Assessment of vision is one key aspect of multifactorial assessment and first eye cataract surgery reduces the rate of falls. We recently modelled the impact of expediting first eye cataract surgery in New Zealand for falls prevention (Boyd et al Injury Prevention). The model used was the same model used for previous modelling of home safety assessment and mod...

Measuring implementation: development of the implementation process assessment tool (IPAT).

Implementation science comprises a large set of theories suggesting interacting factors at different organisational levels. Development of literature syntheses and frameworks for implementation have contributed to comprehensive descriptions of implementation. However, corresponding instruments for measuring these comprehensive descriptions are currently lacking. The present study aimed to develop an instrument measuring care providers' perceptions of an implementation effort, and to explore the instrument's...
