Statins reduce the risk of coronary death in elderly patients with existing heart disease

Statins reduce the risk of coronary death in elderly patients with existing heart diseaseStatins reduce the risk of coronary death in elderly patients with existing heart disease In the randomized PROSPER (PROspective Study of Pravastatin in the Elderly at Risk) 5804 patients 74-82 years with heart disease or factors of cardiovascular risk took pravastatin (40 mg/day) or placebo. Initial cholesterol levels varied about 4.0 to 9.0 mmol/l Time of follow-up was 3.2 years. Who led the study, Dr. James Shepherd (University of Glasgow) reported that in the treatment group the level of cholesterol low-density lipoprotein (LDL) decreased by 34%. Combined parameter outcome (frequency of coronary death, myocardial infarction, stroke) was reduced by 15%: the number of these events in the group intervention amounted to 408, in the placebo group - 473. Mortality from coronary heart disease decreased by 24%. Читать полностью -->

Tests for the rapid diagnosis of SARS did not live up to expectations

 Tests for the rapid diagnosis of SARS did not live up to expectationsA few days ago the media reported the development of a system of rapid diagnosis of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS. It was assumed that the creation of such a rapid test that allows for several hours to differentiate SARS and other respiratory diseases and to identify patients for immediate isolation, will almost instantly distribute the spread of infection. But, unfortunately, these hopes were not realized. As shown by studies conducted by specialists of the American and canadian Centers for prevention and disease control (CDC), a significant number of cases of infection with coronavirus causing SARS, are not accompanied by the appearance in the blood sufficient for a study of the number of viral particles. Thus, in various situations, the rate of false-negative results (negative results from obviously sick people) reaches 60 percent, which makes the study is almost meaningless. In addition, even in the absence of humans, the virus that causes SARS, does not mean that it does not need to be hospitalized - SARS heavy flow with a high probability of fatal outcome can cause a variety of infectious agents.

CollapseCOLLAPSE - one of the forms of acute circulatory failure characterized by a sharp drop in vascular tone or rapid decrease in the mass of circulating blood, which leads to reduced venous inflow to the heart, the fall of the arterial and venous pressure, cerebral hypoxia and inhibition of vital functions of the body. Causes: acute infection (abdominal and typhus fever, meningoencephalitis, pneumonia, and others), acute blood loss, diseases of the endocrine and nervous system tumors, syringomyelia and others), exogenous intoxication (poisoning by carbon monoxide, organophosphorus compounds, and others), spinal and epidural anesthesia, orthostatic blood redistribution (overdose of certain drugs - ganglioblokatorov, insulin, antihypertensive agents, and others), acute diseases of the abdominal cavity (peritonitis and other). The collapse can be a complication of acute disorders of contractile function of the myocardium encompassed by the notion of "syndrome of small cardiac output that occurs in the acute period of myocardial infarction, when pronounced tachycardia, profound bradycardia, disorders of sinus node function and other There are differences between the concepts of "collapse" and "shock". Shock in contrast to collapse referred to as the body's response to super-strong, especially pain, irritation, accompanied by more severe disorders of vital functions of the nervous and endocrine systems, circulatory, respiratory, metabolic processes and often renal excretory function (see Shock}.
