R-wave Optimisation in Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Study

2014-08-27 04:00:50 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to investigate whether the use of a simple feature on the 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG) to optimise pacemaker device programming can have clinically relevant benefit to patient management. More specifically it is to investigate whether using the R-wave in V1 of the surface ECG to guide the timings between left (LV) and right ventricular (RV) pacing improves response to Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy.

Genetics of pubertal timing.

To summarize advances in the genetics underlying variation in normal pubertal timing, precocious puberty, and delayed puberty, and to discuss mechanisms by which genes may regulate pubertal timing.

Proteasome activity determines pupation timing through the degradation speed of timer molecule Blimp-1.

The transcriptional repressor Blimp-1 is a labile protein. This characteristic is key for determining pupation timing because the timing of the disappearance of Blimp-1 affects pupation timing by regu...

Timing Matters: a strategy for neurons to make diverse connections.

Neurogenesis proceeds like a continuous wave, in which each type of neurons is produced over a few days to several days. During this protracted time window, early-born and late-born neurons are sequen...

Constraining Alternative Theories of Gravity Using Pulsar Timing Arrays.

The opening of the gravitational wave window by ground-based laser interferometers has made possible many new tests of gravity, including the first constraints on polarization. It is hoped that, withi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reproductive rights rest on the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have the information and means to do so, and the right to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health. They also include the right of all to make decisions concerning reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence.

Intensely discomforting, distressful, or agonizing sensation associated with trauma or disease, with well-defined location, character, and timing.

Voluntary cooperation of the patient in taking drugs or medicine as prescribed. This includes timing, dosage, and frequency.

Aching sensation that persists for more than a few months. It may or may not be associated with trauma or disease, and may persist after the initial injury has healed. Its localization, character, and timing are more vague than with acute pain.
