The hypothesis of this study is that using hospital admission to identify patients with poorly controlled diabetes (hemoglobin A1c levels >8%), and intervening during the hospitalization w...
The goal of the proposed study is to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to address pain management in the inpatient setting while appropriately managing pain and optimizing pat...
This study is to compare the maternal and neonatal outcomes in the patients with PPROM who are managed at home versus those managed at hospital, half the patients will be managed at home a...
The EARLY-AF study is centered on an evaluation of the impact of the early invasive management of Atrial Fibrillation. The primary goal of the study is to evaluate the clinical effectivene...
This study is performed to assess if PET-MR imaging can improve treatment of patients with irregular heart rate and heart failure. Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is too weak to...
Glycemic control has been increasingly recognized as a critical element in inpatient care, but optimal management of blood glucose in the hospital setting remains challenging. The aims of this study w...
The Osborn or J-wave, an upright deflection of the J-point on the electrocardiogram (ECG), is often observed during severe hypothermia. A possible relation between Osborn waves (OW) and increased risk...
Heart failure (HF) is currently among the most prevalent and costly chronic diseases among older adults, who are at increased risk because of other chronic conditions and the aging process. HF has a s...
Junctional and AV nodal reentrant tachycardia share common electrocardiographic features, but they differ in their management and outcomes after catheter ablation. This case concerns a 60-year-old fem...
Hyperglycemia occurs frequently in hospitalized patients with stroke and peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Guidelines for inpatient glycemic management are not well established for this patient popul...
A potent anti-arrhythmia agent, effective in a wide range of ventricular and atrial arrhythmias and tachycardias. Paradoxically, however, in myocardial infarct patients with either symptomatic or asymptomatic arrhythmia, flecainide exacerbates the arrhythmia and is not recommended for use in these patients.
An integrated professional approach to screening, evaluation, control, and reduction of abnormal WEIGHT GAIN.
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
A broad approach to appropriate coordination of the entire disease treatment process that often involves shifting away from more expensive inpatient and acute care to areas such as preventive medicine, patient counseling and education, and outpatient care. This concept includes implications of appropriate versus inappropriate therapy on the overall cost and clinical outcome of a particular disease. (From Hosp Pharm 1995 Jul;30(7):596)
A naturally occurring variation in heart rate that occurs during a BREATHING cycle, where the time between heartbeats is shortened during inspiration and prolonged during expiration. It is not the same as SINUS ARRHYTHMIA, the disorder.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
