Cardiac device lead clots and cardiac ablation: mitigating the potential for Peri-procedural stroke?

An increasing number of patients receive implanted cardiac devices to ensure adequate beating of the heart ( pacemakers ), prevent sudden cardiac death from life – threatening rhythm disturbances (implantable cardioverter – defibrillator (ICDs) ), as well

RhEPO improves time to exhaustion by non-hematopoetic factors in humans

It is still unclear by which mechanism recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) improves endurance performance. The common belief that it acts by increasing oxygen delivery is rather unlikely. Therefore, we investigated several exercise-relevant variables in healthy, very active

Gas Man computer simulation mimics anesthesia care

Gas Man® computer simulation mimics anesthesia care and allows anesthesia care providers to improve patient safety. Major surgery requires an anesthesia professional to give general anesthesia to a patient. This often begins with a drug injected in

A new example of what not to do in science

A well-known example of what not to do in science is to publish one’s research results not in a single paper, but in as many small papers––called Least Publishable Units (LPUs)––as possible. This is advantageous because researchers

Invertase effect localized on the cell wall on resistance of potato plants to low temperatures

Low temperature is a determinative environmental factor, which can affect all aspects of plant life and determine their geographical distribution and productivity. According to the response to low temperatures plants are divided into some groups: frost- resistant,

New app revolutionising assessment in youth mental healthcare

Across the population, young people are at the highest risk of developing mental health disorders but are the least likely to receive the support they require. Barriers to care been attributed to a range of issues with
