To continue surveillance of coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality and morbidity in the seven county metropolitan Minneapolis/St. Paul (Twin Cities) areas.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the GI clinic's currently used web-based instructions at St. Paul's Hospital.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of using the weight loss medication Xenical (generic name - orlistat) on weight loss and change in heart disease risk factors in patients of the Healthy Heart Program Lipid Clinic at St. Paul's Hospital over a three month period. Xenical works by blocking the body's absorption of dietary fat in the gut, allowing it to pass through to be excreted, therefore reducing the intake of fat and calories. This is a pilot study support...
Will the intervention (Heart SMART program) be feasible in moderate or high stress patients, who are referred to the Women's Heart and Preventive Cardiology clinics at Mayo Clinic?
This study aims to explore and reduce readmission rates, while improving health-related quality of life through patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and after Heart Valve Surgery. This will be investigated through surveys and by a trial investigating the effect of an early rehabilitation effort in a Heart Valve Clinic format.
The purpose of this study is to help people with heart failure (HF) to manage their HF and to prevent rehospitalizations. Another purpose is to test the usefulness of clinical appointments and educational videotapes in teaching patients how to manage their HF. It is proposed that the group clinic intervention will reduce rehospitalization, depression, and improve problem solving related to heart failure symptoms.
To continue surveillance of cardiovascular disease risk factors in the seven-county area of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
This study is a 12-month study. There are two different groups in the study. Both groups will enter the study after the graduation from 8-hour diabetes education course taught at VGH, St. Paul's, or Richmond Hospital. The first group will receive on-going support from their peers who have diabetes and are trained specifically to help other patients with diabetes. The second group will receive the usual care.
To demonstrate the safety, feasibility, quality of life, primary caregiver satisfaction, and cost effectiveness of integrated Home Telehealth care versus standard care in a heart failure clinic.
The study is designed to examine whether curriculum, designed in partnership with teachers at Moreland Elementary school in West St. Paul and Mayo Clinic InSciEd Out scientists, is able to influence the behavior and health literacy of students. This information will be collected in surveys before and after the students are given the curriculum during the school day.
Heart failure is a condition where the heart does not pump enough blood to the rest of the body. People with heart failure may have another condition called the "metabolic syndrome"( having excess fat in the belly, high blood pressure, high fat in the blood, low level of good cholesterol and high blood sugar). People who have both heart failure and the metabolic syndrome often see many doctors. A new clinic has been formed at Ben Taub General Hospital that includes a specialist...
Background: - Aortic valve stenosis is a disease that makes a major heart valve get smaller. This reduces heart function and causes death. Severe aortic stenosis (AS) can be treated in a couple of ways, including replacing a heart valve. Objectives: Researchers want to study fibrosis in the heart. A sub-study will test whether heart function and blood supply improve after a valve replacement. Eligibility: - Adults at least 18 years old with aortic stenosi...
Heart failure (HF) patients living in low-income or isolated areas may have limited access to necessary clinic services and more difficulty in self-managing their illness. This study will evaluate a program that combines group health care visits and a peer-to-peer telephone buddy system at improving health outcomes among low-income and racial minority HF patients.
Subjects meeting the inclusion/exclusion criteria will wear the µCor for at least 90 days. During the study, clinic follow up will occur every 30 days. For all subjects, each scheduled clinic visit will include assessment of cardiac symptoms and any relevant clinically actionable events. The subject will be given a daily diary to track symptoms, unplanned hospital visits, medication changes, and all other heart failure related clinical events. Weekly phone calls to the subject...
This project proposes the development and design of a motor intervention using a cognitive video game and describes the feasibility, safety and acceptability of virtual augmented video gaming device named Virtual Reality on the Intensive Care Unit (VRICU). The project in two phases is performed in healthy participants (Phase 1) and heart patients after elective heart surgery on the Intensive Care Unit (Phase 2). Furthermore, brain function will be measured during exer-gaming w...
This study is a pragmatic randomized clinical trial to determine the effectiveness of two strategies of early follow-up in adults after hospitalization for heart failure: telephone follow-up with a heart failure care manager vs. in-person clinic visit with their primary care provider. The primary outcomes during 30-day follow-up will include readmission for heart failure, death and readmission for any cause. The study team will randomly assign 2400 patients during a 15-month pe...
This study looks at the difference in surgical scar outcomes between two different surgical incision methods during thyroid surgery: scalpel vs electrocautery. Patients who are already scheduled for thyroid surgery with Dr. Sam Wiseman, Endocrine Surgeon at St. Paul's Hospital, and that meet the eligibility criteria for this study will be invited to participate. After signing the informed consent form, participants will be randomized into either one of the two incision methods...
In this study, the investigators provide participants who had congenital cataract the artificial intelligent clinic or normal clinic in the purpose of seeking out a better way to make a definite diagnosis with high efficiency and accuracy, and report a prospective, randomized controlled study aiming at comparison of artificial intelligent clinic and normal clinic for diagnosing congenital cataract.
To assess if a virtual out patient clinic via a telephone review was an acceptable and safe alternative to a clinic attendance for a broad range of general surgical patients discharged following a hospital admission.
Heart failure is a condition where the heart pump does not function normally causing the lungs to become congested. The primary symptom of heart failure is shortness of breath, and this often leads to patients visiting the emergency department for care. Decision-making in the emergency department is a high-stakes situation, where there is a need for decision support to guide clinicians to make better decisions about admission to hospital or discharge home. Many low-risk patient...
The purpose of the research is to determine if patients have fewer Heart Failure (HF) events after receiving Aquapheresis (AQ) therapy compared to intravenous (IV) diuretics up to 90 days of discharge from the hospital. Heart Failure events are defined as returning to the hospital, clinic or emergency department (ED) for treatment of HF symptoms.
We aim to determine the effectiveness of lung impedance guided preemptive therapy (LI-Guided) of chronic heart failure patients with preserved ejection fraction (LVEF ≥ 45%) who are being treated in our hospital's outpatient clinic.
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of a multidisciplinary team clinic including a clinical pharmacist, a registered nurse (RN), dietician and physician providing short-term sub-acute management of patients with heart failure on patient outcomes and the quality of medication use. Patients being discharged from the emergency department with a diagnosis of heart failure will be eligible for this study. We believe that emergency room visits, hospitalization and deat...
The purpose of this study is to compare Dual LV (left ventricular) pacing to standard single LV pacing (BiV pacing) to see if Dual LV pacing: 1. Improves the way the heart's left ventricle functions 2. Decreases the number of hospital and clinic visits for heart failure related symptoms 3. Slows the rate patients experience certain heart failure symptoms 4. Reduces uncoordinated heart contractions
The investigator is trying to improving our knowledge in the treatment of HF patients, for the purpose of improving their quality of life and reducing hospitalizations. For achieving this the investigator would like to build a registry which will include all the HF patients going an evaluation in the Heart Failure unit or clinic in our facility,
