Clinical practice guidelines for heart failure. (1/232)

Development of guidelines can be a difficult process; each organization or institution must establish the rules and criteria for including specific therapies and the level of complexity needed. Specific outcomes must be incorporated, including maintenance of comfort and functionality, freedom from hospitalization, and survival. In existing guidelines for the management of heart failure, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor therapy is clearly the gold standard. However, there is still a high mortality with ACE inhibitor therapy; the key may be choosing the right patients. Current guidelines reflect the uncertainty regarding digoxin before the Digitalis Investigation Group (DIG) trial; obviously, these guidelines should be revisited. Clinical practice guidelines for the management of heart failure need to be revised to include a better consensus on beta-blockade, the new data on digoxin, emerging data on angiotensin II receptor antagonists, and current thinking on anticoagulant therapy.  (+info)

Evaluation of the American Heart Association Stroke Outcome Classification. (2/232)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the concurrent validity of the American Heart Association Stroke Outcome Classification (AHA.SOC) and compare performance of its function classification with that of the Modified Rankin Scale. METHODS: The individuals in this study included the last 105 consecutive subjects who were part of a cohort of 459 stroke patients in the Kansas City Stroke Study. The patients were evaluated with a variety of standardized assessments at enrollment (within 14 days of stroke onset) and followed at 1, 3, and 6 months after stroke. Specifically, we examined validity of AHA.SOC by comparing its 3 domains (ie, Domain, Severe, and Function) with stroke severity. We correlated AHA.SOC-Function with scores of the Barthel Index, Lawton Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) Scale, and Medical Outcome Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) measures of physical function and mental health. Finally, we compared the discriminant ability of AHA.SOC-Function and the Modified Rankin Scale in assessing disability and handicap. These data were analyzed with the use of Spearman rank correlations and Kruskal-Wallis tests. RESULTS: All 3 domains of the AHA.SOC were significantly associated with stroke severity and scores of Barthel Index, Lawton IADL, and SF-36 physical function (all P<0.001). Both AHA.SOC-Function and the Modified Rankin Scale discriminated well the disabilities and handicap measured by Barthel Index, Lawton IADL, and SF-36 physical function (all P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The AHA.SOC was able to capture impairments, disabilities, and handicap after stroke. The AHA. SOC-Function performed equally as well as the Modified Rankin Scale in assessing disabilities related to basic activities of daily living but differentiated slightly better than the Modified Rankin Scale in assessing disabilities/handicap related to instrumental activities of daily living. Neither the AHA.SOC-Function nor the Modified Rankin Scale captured differences in mental health after stroke.  (+info)

Pediatric advanced life support: a review of the AHA recommendations. American Heart Association. (3/232)

The etiologies of respiratory failure, shock, cardiopulmonary arrest and dysrhythmias in children differ from those in adults. In 1988, the American Heart Association implemented the pediatric advanced life support (PALS) program. Major revisions to the program were made in 1994, with further revisions in 1997. The PALS program teaches a systematic, organized approach for the evaluation and management of acutely ill or injured children. Early identification and treatment of respiratory failure and shock in children improve survival, from a dismal 10 percent to an encouraging 85 percent. Family physicians who care for acutely ill or injured children have a tremendous opportunity to save lives through implementation of the PALS information.  (+info)

Development and implementation of a decision support system for carotid artery stenosis: the Carotid Ultrasound Report Enhancement (CURE). (4/232)

The management of carotid artery stenosis is an art evolving into a science, increasingly informed by clinical trials of medical management versus carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Ideas about optimal management depend on the confluence of patient-specific variables, surgical expertise, and the state of medical knowledge. In this complex and progressing setting, an up-to-date decision support system could help physicians apply the latest evidence to patient care. Carotid ultrasonography (US) studies provide an excellent opportunity to aid in the therapy of carotid stenosis. We developed a Carotid US Report Enhancement (CURE) to augment carotid US reports with treatment-specific prognostic information and patient-specific portions of the American Heart Association's 1998 guideline for the management of carotid artery stenosis. In the process of designing and implementing the CURE software, we encountered and eventually solved a variety of problems. The first problem was that US test was not always precise enough to distinguish between a moderate and mild carotid stenosis. Likewise, the standard US reports did not elucidate several technical problems that decreased the reliability of the US result. Third, although 17 of 18 physicians agreed to receive the CURE reports, they requested non-incriminating wording. Fourth, vascular surgeons supervising the US laboratories were reluctant to support the CURE report if they thought it would be construed as prompting self-referral. Finally, information about some comorbid conditions (e.g. a history of atrial fibrillation) could not be obtained reliably from the patients. The result of responding to these problems is a decision support program that is increasingly robust, able to detect many of its own limitations, and capable of integrating data from multiple sources. A randomized controlled trial now in progress will evaluate the clinical impact of the CURE program.  (+info)

AHA Science Advisory. Stanol/sterol ester-containing foods and blood cholesterol levels. A statement for healthcare professionals from the Nutrition Committee of the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism of the American Heart Association. (5/232)

Considerable attention in the recent past has focused on the potential benefits or adverse effects of butter versus different types of margarines, usually with respect to their relative content of polyunsaturated, saturated, and trans fatty acids, and the impact of these on low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. Recently, a new class of margarines and other fat-derived products (eg, salad dressings, mayonnaise) containing plant-derived sterols that are intended for use to lower blood cholesterol levels have been introduced into the food supply. These products are being marketed as adjuncts to low-saturated-fat and low-cholesterol diets to maximize reductions in LDL cholesterol levels achievable by dietary means.  (+info)

Circulation Research: origin and early years. (6/232)

Circulation Research, first published in 1953, was created by the American Heart Association as "the authoritative new journal for investigators of the basic sciences as they apply to the heart and circulation." This review of the early years of the journal highlights the contributions of the first four Editors: Carl J. Wiggers, Carl F. Schmidt, Eugene M. Landis, and Julius H. Comroe, Jr. The success of Circulation Research is seen not only in the high quality of the articles published in its pages but also in the remarkable improvements in prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease that have occurred over the past half century.  (+info)

Dietary protein and weight reduction: a statement for healthcare professionals from the Nutrition Committee of the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism of the American Heart Association. (7/232)

High-protein diets have recently been proposed as a "new" strategy for successful weight loss. However, variations of these diets have been popular since the 1960s. High-protein diets typically offer wide latitude in protein food choices, are restrictive in other food choices (mainly carbohydrates), and provide structured eating plans. They also often promote misconceptions about carbohydrates, insulin resistance, ketosis, and fat burning as mechanisms of action for weight loss. Although these diets may not be harmful for most healthy people for a short period of time, there are no long-term scientific studies to support their overall efficacy and safety. These diets are generally associated with higher intakes of total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol because the protein is provided mainly by animal sources. In high-protein diets, weight loss is initially high due to fluid loss related to reduced carbohydrate intake, overall caloric restriction, and ketosis-induced appetite suppression. Beneficial effects on blood lipids and insulin resistance are due to the weight loss, not to the change in caloric composition. Promoters of high-protein diets promise successful results by encouraging high-protein food choices that are usually restricted in other diets, thus providing initial palatability, an attractive alternative to other weight-reduction diets that have not worked for a variety of reasons for most individuals. High-protein diets are not recommended because they restrict healthful foods that provide essential nutrients and do not provide the variety of foods needed to adequately meet nutritional needs. Individuals who follow these diets are therefore at risk for compromised vitamin and mineral intake, as well as potential cardiac, renal, bone, and liver abnormalities overall.  (+info)

Guideline compliance improves stroke outcome: a preliminary study in 4 districts in the Italian region of Lombardia. (8/232)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Guidelines for medical practice in stroke have been proposed in different countries, but their impact on stroke outcome has not been verified to date. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of the American Heart Association guidelines for acute stroke and for transient ischemic attack on first-ever stroke patients. METHODS: Three hundred eighty-six first-ever ischemic stroke patients were admitted to the study. Those observed within 6 hours from stroke onset were eligible for the acute clinical phase of the study, while all were admitted to the early clinical phase. The follow-up lasted 6 months. Primary end points were survival and the effectiveness of treatment on disability, measured as the proportion of potential improvement in the Barthel Index score achieved during treatment. A rating of noncompliance with the guideline recommendations was calculated for each patient, and its association with the end points was investigated. The Kaplan-Meier method and log-rank test were used to estimate and compare survival curves between groups; Cox proportional hazards model and logistic regression were used to identify risk factors for mortality; and correlation tests and regression analysis were used to evaluate the influence of guideline compliance on disability. Both univariate and multivariate statistical analyses were performed. RESULTS: Survival and treatment effectiveness were directly correlated with guideline compliance. The relative risk of death for patients with a noncompliance rating > or =5 was 2.26 with respect to patients with a noncompliance rating <5 (95% CI, 1.51 to 4.67; P<0.0007). In this latter group, at 6 months we detected a 15% decrease in mortality (95% CI, 9.1% to 17.5%). Treatment effectiveness showed a Spearman's rank correlation with the noncompliance rating of -0.3 (P<0.001). At discharge we observed a 13% increase in treatment effectiveness, while no significant differences were detectable at 3 and 6 months. These associations were confirmed by the multivariate analysis, in which we included, together with the noncompliance rating, all the variables previously identified as independent predictors of mortality and disability. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates an association between adherence to guidelines and stroke outcome, and it can be viewed as a study that prepares the way for a randomized controlled trial in this area. It also emphasizes the need to develop personnel and structures devoted to stroke care because an evidence-based clinical approach could significantly reduce the risk of death.  (+info)

Among a large cohort of patients with IS/TIA, we found that AF was present in 11.8%. Moreover, patients with AF were more likely to have a history of myocardial infarction/coronary artery disease and/or prosthetic valves, and had more severe strokes than IS/TIA patients without AF. As recommended by American Heart Association/American Stroke Association guidelines, warfarin use was high among IS/TIA patients with AF but, nonetheless, significantly underutilized. Of the 38 patients who did not receive warfarin at discharge but were eligible for its use, 18 (47.4%) initiated warfarin up to 1 year after the index stroke event and 20 (52.6%) did not. Of the 253 patients discharged on warfarin, 208 (82.2%) were still using warfarin at 12 months. Importantly, male gender was the only independent predictor of warfarin use at 12 months.. Current American Heart Association/American Stroke Association guidelines recommend warfarin use as a class IA recommendation in IS/TIA patients with AF.9 Warfarin ...

None of the 3 earlier studies carried out with primarily intra-arterial fibrinolysis or first-generation mechanical embolectomy devices showed a benefit of endovascular treatment over intravenous r-tPA in intravenous r-tPA-eligible patients either as a substitute for initial treatment (SYNTHESIS Expansion) or as subsequent intervention in those with persistent large-artery occlusion after intravenous r-tPA (IMS III and MR RESCUE). MR RESCUE also showed no benefit for other patients treated within 8 hours even if selected by multimodal neuroimaging criteria. These studies, using almost exclusively intra-arterial r-tPA and first-generation endovascular devices alone or in combination, achieved recanalization rates of 27% to 41%. The subsequent trials using stent retrievers almost exclusively demonstrated improved results for both recanalization rates and outcome. Studies have shown that clinical outcome improved with increasing effectiveness of recanalization. Those with partial recanalization ...
Background: Characterizing International Classification of Disease (ICD-9) code validity is essential given widespread use of hospital discharge and claims databases in research. Estimates for acute stroke vary depending on the codes investigated. We sought to estimate the validity of ICD-9 codes grouped according to the 2013 American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) updated stoke definition and to explore differences by patient characteristics and study site.. Methods: Medical records (N=4,260) containing ICD-9 codes 430-438 or stroke keywords in the discharge summary were abstracted for hospitalizations of Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study cohort members from 1987-2010. A computer algorithm and physician reviewer identified definite and probable ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with differences adjudicated by a second physician. Using ARIC diagnosis as a gold standard, we calculated the positive predictive ...

To the Editor:. The members of the Atherosclerosis, Hypertension, and Obesity in the Young Committee of the American Heart Association Council on Cardiovascular Disease in the Young believe it is of clinical importance to point out a discrepancy in the cuff size section of the recent American Heart Association Scientific Statement Recommendations for Blood Pressure Measurement in Humans.1 On page 705 of that document, the report states that the ideal cuff should have a bladder length that is 80% and a width that is at least 40% of arm circumference. The statement quotes a study by Marks and Groch2 that concluded that the error in measurement of blood pressure is minimized with a cuff width of 46% of the arm circumference.. Immediately after these 2 statements is a series of 4 bullets giving cuff recommendations. The dimensions given in the bullets call for only 2 cuff widths, 12 and 16 cm, rather than the original text, which called for widths of 10, 13, 16, and 20 cm. If one calculates ...

The 2006 American Heart Association / American Stroke Association Council on Stroke Guidelines for Prevention of Stroke in Patients With Ischemic Stroke or Transient Ischemic recommended that patients with cryptogenic stroke take antithrombotic drugs (i.e. aspirin) in order to prevent a second stroke. When a stroke patient is found to have atrial fibrillation (AF), the guidelines recommend oral anticoagulation due to its superior efficacy over aspirin for stroke prevention. Physicians can best optimize the use of medicines only if they can precisely and correctly diagnose a patients AF. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the time to first AF by 6 months continuous rhythm monitoring versus control treatment in subjects with a recent cryptogenic stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) without history of AF ...

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Gum disease and tooth loss may be associated with a higher risk of death in postmenopausal women but not increased cardiovascular disease risk, according to new research in Journal of the American Heart Association, the open access journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.. Loss of all natural teeth also was linked with an increased risk of death in postmenopausal women, according to the study led by researchers at the University at Buffalo.. Periodontal disease, a chronic inflammatory disease of the gum and connective tissue surrounding the teeth, affects nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults 60 and older. The loss of all ones teeth, called edentulism, impacts about one-third of U.S. adults 60 and older and often results from periodontal disease.. Beside their negative impact on oral function and dietary habits, these conditions are also thought to be related to chronic diseases of aging, said Michael J.

Ischemic stroke (caused by a blockage in a blood vessel in or leading to the brain) averaged a 6.6 day stay and $15,000 in costs. Costs were higher at government/public hospitals and urban teaching hospitals., says the statement. Also, costs were highest in the western United States and lowest in the South, researchers said.. Of the total, 22% were subarachnoid hemorrhage, 23% were intracerebral hemorrhage, and 55% were ischemic stroke, says the statement.. In adults, roughly 13% of all US strokes are the bleeding type, according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. However, in this study, the bleeding type accounted for almost 45% in children. Of the cases, private insurance covered 55% of the children, Medicaid or Medicare government insurance programs covered 35%, and self-pay or other coverage accounted for the remaining 10%, according to the statement. The study also found that for families with the higher incomes, childhood stroke costs were greater.. Furthermore, ...
Early detection of aspiration risk in acute stroke is critical as it allows for immediate intervention, thereby reducing mortality, morbidity, length of hospitalization, and healthcare costs. Screening of swallowing prior to the administration of food, liquid or medication, including aspirin, in individuals presenting with stroke symptoms is a guideline American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. In accordance with this guideline, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has advocated the screening of swallowing be a quality performance measure in acute stroke. Moreover, the Office of the Inspector General recently issued VHA Directive 2006-032 mandating that the initial nurse assessment must include a screening of swallowing. In response to the directive, many VHA facilities created and implemented some version of a nursing swallowing screening tool (SST), but to our knowledge, none have been validated using an instrumental swallowing examination nor has reliability been ...

A significant change in these guidelines, which update a previous statement from 2006, is that clinicians are urged to address primary prevention of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke because the risk factors and prevention strategies for these events largely overlap. The critical role of a healthy lifestyle in the prevention of stroke is also emphasized. Areas of particular interest include emergency department (ED) screening, aspirin use among low-risk patients, asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis, and atrial fibrillation (AF), among other updates. ED screening for stroke risk represents an entirely new recommendation. Due to a lack of resources, there has been a surge in the number of people who receive care ...

Our Commitment to Stroke Care. After a stroke, every second counts. Strokes happen when a clot blocks a blood vessel in the brain or when a blood vessel bursts. Without a constant blood supply, brain cells quickly die. In fact, nearly 2 million brain cells are lost every minute after a stroke starts. According to The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds and nearly 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. Stroke is a major concern for the community, which is why Memorial Hospital of Gardena has made a significant investment in stroke care. What inspires us, however, are the citizens of Gardena. We believe strongly that it is our duty to offer quality, compassionate, state-of-the-art stroke care to our community. In March 2017, we became the first certified stroke center in Gardena. The Joint ...
BACKGROUND: An American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) writing committee has recently recommended that tissue evidence of cerebral infarction associated with temporary symptoms (CITS) lasting ,24 hours should be considered a stroke. We analyzed the impact of considering CITS as equivalent to stroke on the results of the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) trial. METHODS: We compared outcomes in the medical (n = 227) and stenting (n = 224) groups in SAMMPRIS using the following primary end point (new components in bold): any stroke, CITS, or death within 30 days after enrollment or within 30 days after a revascularization procedure for the qualifying lesion during follow-up; or ischemic stroke or CITS in the territory of the qualifying artery beyond 30 days ...

January 24-26. Gurmeen Kaur, MBBS. This year at ISC 2018 in Los Angeles, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association put together a new program called the Fellows in Training program (FIT). In addition to introducing attendees to the International Stroke Conference and the AHA/ASA, the workshop was meant to provide stroke fellows with tools and training that will benefit them in their professional career, as well as opportunities to interact with thought leaders and potential mentors in the national and international stroke community.. Around 50 fellows from vascular neurology programs around the country were a part of the workshop, which began with an introduction and several talks on how to identify your mission statement, good ways to present your data, and introducing changes in healthcare by understanding business, quality improvement and leadership models and roles. Day 1 also included a talk on how to build a practice and various practice models and their limitations. This ...

The goal of therapy for bradycardia or tachycardia is to rapidly identify and treat patients who are hemodynamically unstable or symptomatic due to the arrhythmia. Drugs or, when appropriate, pacing may be used to control unstable or symptomatic bradycardia. Cardioversion or drugs or both may be used to control unstable or symptomatic tachycardia. ACLS providers should closely monitor stable patients pending expert consultation and should be prepared to aggressively treat those with evidence of decompensation. © 2010 American Heart Association.

In the topsy-turvy world of Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland (1), the Cheshire Cat said, only a few find the way, some dont recognize it when they do-some … dont ever want to. Such was the status of many healthcare providers and patients in November 2013 at the issuance of the 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults (2). This was coupled with the Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk (3), using a new risk assessment calculator, the Pooled Cohort Equations (4), to estimate atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk for adults aged 40 to 75 years in the primary prevention setting. ASCVD incorporates stroke events in addition to coronary heart disease events and includes serious nonfatal events, as well as mortality; these additions are designed to reduce disability.. Guideline highlights include the following: focus on managing ASCVD due to ...

Definitive therapy of advanced heart failure, as classified by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines, is complicated because of the lack of donor organs for transplantation.1 This shortage has established a need for alternative heart failure therapies. In 2004, the Food and Drug Administration approval of a 70cc total artificial heart (TAH; SynCardia Systems Inc, Tucson, AZ) served as a valuable new treatment option offering a bridge to transplant, although patients await a donor heart.. Recent studies demonstrated that the 70cc TAH has been successfully placed in 1300 patients worldwide and has served as a successful bridge to transplant in 79% of patients.2 However, the invasive removal of the atria and ventricles during placement of the TAH carries risks. Hematologic risks include hemopericardium and coagulopathy, which may further result in either pulmonary or neurological embolic events. The implanted device itself is not without risk given reported ...

The American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association task force (ACC/AHA 2007 guidelines) has assigned Class I recommendation for oxygen use to correct arterial oxygen desaturation (Sao2 ,90%) and Class IIa recommendation for all patients with unstable angina/non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and uncomplicated ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction within the first 6 h after presentation. The rationale for oxygen use is based on 2 assumptions: 1) that increasing arterial oxygen tension decreases the acute ischemic injury and the eventual infarct area (5,6); and 2) the observation that some patients with uncomplicated myocardial infarction have arterial hypoxemia due to fluid retention in the lungs and a ventilation-perfusion mismatch.. However, the evidence supporting these assumptions is limited. Moreover, we are not aware of any studies demonstrating that normoxic subjects undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction derive any benefit ...
DALLAS, Monday -A womans heart attack may have different underlying causes, symptoms and outcomes compared to men, and differences in risk factors and outcomes are further pronounced in black and Hispanic women, according to a scientific statement published in the American Heart Associations journal Circulation. The statement is the first scientific statement from the American Heart Association on heart attacks in women. It notes that there have been dramatic declines in cardiovascular deaths among women due to improved treatment and prevention of heart disease as well as increased public awareness.. Despite stunning improvements in cardiovascular deaths over the last decade, women still fare worse than men and heart disease in women remains underdiagnosed, and undertreated, especially among African-American women, said writing group chair Laxmi Mehta, M.D., a noninvasive cardiologist and Director of the Womens Cardiovascular Health Program at The Ohio State University..
