A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ.

Is hospital care involved in inequalities in coronary heart disease mortality? Results from the French WHO-MONICA Project in men aged 30-64. (1/291)

OBJECTIVES: The goal of the study was to assess whether possible disparities in coronary heart disease (CHD) management between occupational categories (OC) in men might be observed and contribute to the increasing inequalities in CHD morbidity and mortality reported in France. METHODS: The data from the three registers of the French MONICA Collaborative Centres (MCC-Lille, MCC-Strasbourg, and MCC-Toulouse) were analysed during two period: 1985-87 and 1989-91. Acute myocardial infarctions and coronary deaths concerning men, aged 30-64 years, were included. Non-professionally active and retired men were excluded. Results were adjusted for age and MCC, using a logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: 605 and 695 events were analysed for 1985-87 and 1989-91, respectively. Out of hospital cardiac arrests, with or without cardiac resuscitation, and 28 day case fatality rates were lower among upper executives in both periods. A coronarography before the acute event had been performed more frequently in men of this category and the proportion of events that could be hospitalised was higher among them. In both periods, the management of acute myocardial infarctions in hospital and prescriptions on discharge were similar among occupational categories. CONCLUSIONS: For patients who could be admitted to hospital, the management was found to be similar among OCs, as was the 28 day case fatality rate among the hospitalised patients. In contrast, lower prognosis and higher probability of being hospitalised after the event among some categories suggest that pre-hospital care and the patient's conditions before the event are the primary factors involved.  (+info)

Feasibility of direct discharge from the coronary/intermediate care unit after acute myocardial infarction. (2/291)

OBJECTIVES: This investigation was designed to determine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of direct discharge from the coronary/intermediate care unit (CICU) in 497 consecutive patients with an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND: Although patients with an AMI are traditionally treated in the CICU followed by a period on the medical ward, the latter phase can likely be incorporated within the CICU. METHODS: All patients were considered for direct discharge from the CICU with appropriate patient education. The 6-week postdischarge course was evaluated using a structured questionnaire by a telephone interview. RESULTS: There were 497 patients (men = 353; women = 144; age 63.5 +/- 0.6 years) in the study, with 29 in-hospital deaths and a further 11 deaths occurring within 6 weeks of discharge. The mode length of CICU stay was 4.0 days (mean 5.1 +/- 0.2 days): 1 to 2 (12%), 3 (19%), 4 (21%), 5 (14%), 6 to 7 (19%) and > or = 7 (15%) days, respectively with 87.2% discharged home directly. Of the 425 patients surveyed, 119 (28.0%) indicated that they had made unscheduled return visits (URV) to a hospital or physician's office: 10.6% to an emergency room, 9.4% to a physician's office and 8.0% readmitted to a hospital. Of these URV, only 14.3% occurred within 48 h of discharge. Compared to historical controls, the present management strategy resulted in a cost savings of Cdn. $4,044.01 per patient. CONCLUSIONS: Direct discharge from CICU is a feasible and safe strategy for the majority of patients that results in considerable savings.  (+info)

Audit of thrombolysis initiated in an accident and emergency department. (3/291)

Early thrombolytic therapy after acute myocardial infarction is important in reducing mortality. To evaluate a system for reducing in-hospital delays to thrombolysis pain to needle and door to needle times to thrombolysis were audited in a major accident and emergency (A and E) department of a district general hospital and its coronary care unit (CCU), situated about 5 km away. Baseline performance over six months was assessed retrospectively from notes of 43 consecutive patients (group 1) transferred to the CCU before receiving thrombolysis. Subsequently, selected patients (23) were allowed to receive thrombolysis in the A and E department before transfer to the CCU. The agent was administered by medical staff in the department after receiving oral confirmation of myocardial infarction from the admitting medical officer in the CCU on receipt of fax transmission of the electrocardiogram. A second prospective audit during six months from the start of the new procedure established time intervals in 23 patients eligible to receive thrombolysis in the A and E department (group 2b) and 30 ineligible patients who received thrombolysis in the CCU (group 2a). The groups did not differ significantly in case mix, pre-hospital delay, or transfer time to the CCU. In group 2b door to needle time and pain to needle time were reduced significantly (geometric mean 38 min v 121 min (group 2a) and 128 min (group 1); 141 min v 237 min (group 2a) and 242 min (group 1) respectively, both p < 0.0001). The incidence of adverse effects was not significantly different. Nine deaths occurred (six in group 1, three in group 2b), an in-hospital mortality of 9.9%. Thrombolysis can be safely instituted in the A and E department in selected patients, significantly reducing delay to treatment.  (+info)

Comparing physician-specific two-year patient outcomes after coronary angiography: methodologic issues and results. (4/291)

OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate methodologies to compare physician-related long-term patient outcomes appropriately. BACKGROUND: Evaluation of physicians on the basis of short-term patient outcome is becoming widely practiced. These analyses fail to consider the importance of long-term outcome, and methods appropriate to such an analysis are poorly defined. METHODS: All patients undergoing coronary angiography between 1992 and 1994 who received all of their cardiac care at our institution were followed for 27+/-13 months (mean+/-SD). Patients (n = 754) were cared for by one or more of 17 staff physicians. Risk-adjusted models were developed for four candidate clinical end points and cost. Physicians were then evaluated for each outcome measure. RESULTS: Of the clinical end points, death could be modeled most accurately (c-statistic = 0.83). The c-statistics for other end points ranged from 0.63 to 0.70. Physicians with outcomes statistically different (p < 0.05) from other physicians were identified more commonly than would be expected from the play of chance (p = 0.005). However, improvement in the c-statistics by the addition of physician identifiers was very modest. Physician's evaluations by the four measures of clinical outcome were variably correlated (r = .00 to .85). Graphic display of clinical and cost results for each physician did identify certain physicians who might be judged to provide more cost-effective care than others. CONCLUSIONS: Although comparisons of groups of physicians on the basis of long-term patient outcomes may have merit, individual physician-to-physician comparisons will be more difficult, owing to 1) multiple physicians contributing care to individual patients; 2) the poor predictive capacity of models other than that for survival; and 3) the modest apparent impact of differences in physician providers on long-term patient outcome. With these caveats in mind, modeling to compare patient outcomes of individual physicians with homogeneous patient populations or to identify gross outliers (good or bad) may be practicable in some patient-care systems, but may be inappropriate in others.  (+info)

Analysis of the treatment of acute myocardial infarction using ambulance records in Japanese cities. (5/291)

By means of ambulance records, the current state of medical services for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was investigated in Chiba City and Ichihara City, Japan. From all patients transported by ambulance personnel in 1992 (n=31,191), 388 patients who were admitted within 2 weeks after the onset were studied. Types of admitting institution, diagnoses, medical treatments and prognoses were investigated. According to medical records, 168 patients fulfilled the criteria of definite AMI and were admitted alive. Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and recanalization (PTCR) were performed on 54 and 6 patients, respectively. The hospital case-fatality rates were lower in the patients who underwent emergency PTCA or PTCR than in the others. Emergency PTCA or PTCR, and admission to coronary care units (CCU) or institutions equipped with coronary angiography, decreased the fatality risk, even after considering age, sex, and disease severity. These results show the importance of the selection of institutions for AMI patients. Because 40% of definite AMI patients were sent to institutions without CCU, it is essential that enough CCU are available through an improvement in cooperation between the various types of institutions, and in the proper transfer of AMI patients to CCU  (+info)

Hospital mortality of acute myocardial infarction in the thrombolytic era. (6/291)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the management and outcome of an unselected consecutive series of patients admitted with acute myocardial infarction to a tertiary referral centre. DESIGN: A historical cohort study over a three year period (1992-94) of consecutive unselected admissions with acute myocardial infarction identified using the HIPE (hospital inpatient enquiry) database and validated according to MONICA criteria for definite or probable acute myocardial infarction. SETTING: University teaching hospital and cardiac tertiary referral centre. RESULTS: 1059 patients were included. Mean age was 67 years; 60% were male and 40% female. Rates of coronary care unit (CCU) admission, thrombolysis, and predischarge angiography were 70%, 28%, and 32%, respectively. Overall in-hospital mortality was 18%. Independent predictors of hospital mortality by multivariate analysis were age, left ventricular failure, ventricular arrhythmias, cardiogenic shock, management outside CCU, and reinfarction. Hospital mortality in a small cohort from a non-tertiary referral centre was 14%, a difference largely explained by the lower mean age of these patients (64 years). Five year survival in the cohort was 50%. Only age and left ventricular failure were independent predictors of mortality at follow up. CONCLUSIONS: In unselected consecutive patients the hospital mortality of acute myocardial infarction remains high (18%). Age and the occurrence of left ventricular failure are major determinants of short and long term mortality after acute myocardial infarction.  (+info)

Increasing levels of interleukin (IL)-1Ra and IL-6 during the first 2 days of hospitalization in unstable angina are associated with increased risk of in-hospital coronary events. (7/291)

BACKGROUND: A growing body of evidence suggests a role for inflammation in acute coronary syndromes. The aim of this study was to assess the role of proinflammatory cytokines, their time course, and their association with prognosis in unstable angina. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 43 patients aged 62+/-8 years admitted to our coronary care unit for Braunwald class IIIB unstable angina. In each patient, serum levels of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra), interleukin-6 (IL-6) (which represent sensitive markers of biologically active IL-1beta and tumor necrosis factor-alpha levels, respectively), and troponin T were measured at entry and 48 hours after admission. Troponin T-positive patients were excluded. Patients were divided a posteriori into 2 groups according to their in-hospital outcome: group 1 comprised 17 patients with an uneventful course, and group 2 comprised 26 patients with a complicated in-hospital course. In group 1, mean IL-1Ra decreased at 48 hours by 12%, and IL-6 diminished at 48 hours by 13%. In group 2, IL-1Ra and IL-6 entry levels were higher than in group 1 and increased respectively by 37% and 57% at 48 hours (P<0.01). CONCLUSIONS: These findings indicate that although they receive the same medical therapy as patients who do not experience an in-hospital event, patients with unstable angina and with complicated in-hospital courses have higher cytokine levels on admission. A fall in IL-1Ra and IL-6 48 hours after admission was associated with an uneventful course and their increase with a complicated hospital course. These findings may suggest novel therapeutic approaches to patients with unstable angina.  (+info)

Troponin I and myocardial injury in the ICU. (8/291)

Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) is a protein that is specific to heart muscle. Increased concentrations appear in serum after myocardial cell injury. cTnI was compared with creatinine kinase MB (CK MB), myoglobin and the 12-lead ECG for detection of myocardial injury in an unselected series of 109 medical and surgical ICU patients. Clinical observations and daily 12-lead ECG were recorded prospectively. Samples for cTnI, myoglobin and CK MB serum analysis were collected each day. Increased serum cTnI concentrations (> 0.1 microgram litre-1) were observed in 70.6% (n = 77) of the ICU group. Tachycardia, arrhythmia, hypotension and treatment with inotropic drugs were associated with higher concentrations. The standardized mortality ratio by APACHE III for the ICU sample was 0.98. All subjects in an unmatched control group of 98 medical unit emergency admissions without a primary cardiac diagnosis had serum cTnI concentrations < 0.1 microgram litre-1. We conclude that increased serum cTnI concentrations occur frequently in the ICU suggesting that there is a high incidence of cardiac injury in these patients.  (+info)

Discussion. Loss of blood due to diagnostic and therapeutic tests is associated with a fall in Hb.7-9 In our study the average number of analyses per patient was 7. Vincent et al., with a data gathering period of the same length as ours, state that 46% of patients undergo an average of 4.6 analyses in 24h.12 On the other hand, Mendoza et al.13 conclude that approximately 50% of patients undergo an average of 8±5 extractions per day. According to Carrillo et al.14 the number of extractions varies from 5 to 12 per day.. We observed that the volume of blood extracted varied, depending on patient pathology; the units where the greatest number of extractions took place during the first hours after admission were Cardiac Surgery and the Coronary Unit. These created enzyme curves to monitor patients after cardiac surgery, or to monitor cardiac enzymes in patients with acute cardiovascular pathology. We agree with the bibliography that these patients have greater blood losses.15 Carrillo et al.14 ...

Almost all medical devices in ICU/CCU have a built-in clinical alarm system to alert when there are changes in a patients condition. The objective of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the existing alarm system in ICU/CCU. Two summative usability tests were conducted to test the effectiveness of existing and new alarm signals based on IEC 60601-1-8:2006 standard. Further formative test was conducted to study perception of urgency associated with number of tones in the alarm signals. The findings indicate that the existing auditory alarm signal in ICU/CCU do not indicate the urgency of the alarm conditions. The simulation test indicates that the respondents preferred 282Hz, 500Hz and 800Hz for low, medium and high-risk alarm respectively. The one-sample proportion z test on urgency mapping indicates that the proportion of responses for highest risk is more than 50% for single tone test signal. These results show that single tone test signal being perceived as highest risk ...

Patient states that he was in good health up until the evening of last March when during physical effort (tennis match), he experienced intense oppressive chest pain, with nausea. He was taken to the Emergency Department where an ECG was performed which showed elevation of the ST segment in leads V1 to V5, aVL andinferior ST segment depression. Following administration of ASA, clopidrogel, heparin, and NTG, the patient underwent primary PTCA with the placement of two non-medicated stents in the mid proximal segment of the anterior descending artery. The coronography also showed stenosis of 70% of the circumflex artery mid segment, and a decision was taken to treat this at a later date; the right coronary artery showed no signs of significant stenosis, but slight irregularities to the walls. An aortic counterpulsator was positioned for the presentation of hypotension. Treatment was begun with glycoprotein inhibitors (abciximab).

Well, I am writing this post tonight from a very unexpected place. Yesterday afternoon my husband and I were sitting, watching TV when the phone rang. It was a cardiologist from a hospital about 40 miles away. Apparently the cardiac loop recorder that my husband has been wearing for the last 3 weeks transmitted an arrhythmia that concerned the doctors. My husband wasnt understanding what the doctor was explaining so I grabbed the phone from him and spoke to the doctor myself. Apparently the monitor had transmitted that he was in ventricular tachycardia. I asked to the doctor to clarify that again as he generally has atrial fibrillation, not v-tach. Sure enough he verified that he had about a 30 beat episode of wide complex v-tach. So off to the hospital we went. When we got there they knew right away who we were and rushed my husband back to the stroke/ heart attack center. At this time his blood pressure was running 220/115 so we were a bit worried. He was a direct admission to the cardiac ...

Background Gender differences in presentation and management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are well established internationally. This study investigated differences in a national Irish sample. Design Cross-sectional survey. Methods All centres (n= 39) admitting cardiac patients to intensive/coronary care provided information on 25 consecutive acute myocardial infarction patients and other ACS patients admitted concurrently (n= 1365 episodes). Patient data was analyzed in terms of those with prior ACS/revascularization, and those without. Results Men with prior established ACS/revascularization were twice as likely to have received revascularization procedures (coronary artery bypass graft or percutaneous coronary intervention) prior to admission when controlling for age, total cholesterol and insurance status [odds ratio (OR) 1.97, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.18-3.29, P = 0.011]. No gender differences were seen in acute-phase reperfusion (OR 0.96, 95% CI 0.76-1.24, P |0.05) or antiplatelet

  • This pandemic represents an unprecedented operational challenge for our health-care systems and leadership. (
  • This concerning drop in health-care utilization corresponds to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread social distancing. (
  • We, as health-care professionals, have postponed or cancelled standard testing, including screening tests for identification of major cardiovascular issues. (
  • Could health-care professionals be attributing cardiac symptoms such as chest pain as symptoms of COVID-19? (
  • Direct costs -- Costs associated with prevention activities and the health-care system (compare with Indirect costs). (
  • Indirect costs -- Costs not directly associated with prevention and health-care activities that accrue to individuals (e.g., loss of time from work), society (e.g., disability payments), or employers (e.g., decreased productivity). (

  • [5] There is an increase in the pulmonary artery pressure, hypervolemia, polycythemia, and increased blood viscosity, all lead to additional stress on heart, predisposing personnel to Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). (
  • A logistic regression model was developed using Platelet IIb/IIIa Antagonism for the Reduction of Acute coronary syndrome events in a Global Organization Network (PARAGON-A) data to assess the prognostic value of the extent and distribution of ST segment depression in predicting one-year mortality. (
  • Identify by orders is care plan examples, assess stress reduction. (
  • The aim of the present study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of drotrecogin alpha (activated) versus that of standard care in the treatment of severe sepsis in Spain. (
  • Thus, individuals who had undergone a coronary artery CT scan and a respiratory function test at approximately the same time served as subjects for the present study. (
