Safer Warfarin Treatment

2014-08-27 03:16:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study is a national multicenter prospective observational study, including 200 patients. The main purpose of this study is to explore in more detail the influence of genetic variability (CYP enzymes and vitamin K dependent proteins) and dietary vitamin K status on warfarin dosing, clinical effect and adverse events with emphasis on the initial phase of treatment. The hypothesis is that genetic variability concerning CYP enzymes and vitamin K dependent proteins predict dosing and adverse events during warfarin treatment. The main aim is to individualize warfarin therapy and establish a treatment algorithm based on genotype and dietary vitamin K status to make the anticoagulation therapy with warfarin more secure.

Accuracy of oscillometric blood pressure measurement in atrial fibrillation.

The primary aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of automated oscillometry (AO) in outpatients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The secondary aim was to explore whether AO accuracy is influenced...

Atrial Fibrillation and Arterial Hypertension.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) and arterial hypertension frequently coexist, not only because arterial hypertension increases the incidence of new onset of atrial fibrillation, but also because those two en...

Red blood cell distribution width as a predictor of atrial fibrillation.

Current evidence suggests that a higher red blood cell distribution width (RDW) may be associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) development. Given that some controversial results hav...

Hyperglycemia on admission and hospitalization outcomes in patients with atrial fibrillation.

We evaluated the association of admission blood glucose (ABG) and mortality in patients with and without diabetes mellitus (DM) hospitalized for atrial fibrillation (AF).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).

The urea concentration of the blood stated in terms of nitrogen content. Serum (plasma) urea nitrogen is approximately 12% higher than blood urea nitrogen concentration because of the greater protein content of red blood cells. Increases in blood or serum urea nitrogen are referred to as azotemia and may have prerenal, renal, or postrenal causes. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

Any liquid used to replace blood plasma, usually a saline solution, often with serum albumins, dextrans or other preparations. These substances do not enhance the oxygen- carrying capacity of blood, but merely replace the volume. They are also used to treat dehydration.

The body fluid that circulates in the vascular system (BLOOD VESSELS). Whole blood includes PLASMA and BLOOD CELLS.

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
