Abstract

The base deficit is the best way to evaluate severity of Metabolic Acidosis (MA). It indicates a value corresponding to the number of mmol/L below 24 of the measured bicarbonate concentration. Base deficit between 0 and 5 mmol/L indicates that the patient is not at risk of immediate harm. Arterial blood gases are typically measured every 2-4 ho

Isolated Coronary Artery Stenoses (CAS) involving the ostium of the Left Anterior Descending (LAD) artery is very challenging, especially in a setting of primary Angioplasty in Myocardial Infarction (PAMI). Intimal atherosclerosis in the Left Main Coronary Artery (LMCA) bifurcation is primarily in area of low shear stress which is the lateral w

Abstract

Background: Diabetes carries a two-fold risk of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD). Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy (DAN), often progressing to Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy (CAN, critically low parasympathetic tone [P]), increases death 3.5-fold over 5 years, half sudden or non-renal. Oxidative stress is a major cause of DAN. Also, increased symp

Abstract

Background: Over one billion people have Hypertension (HTN); mortality and morbidity are increasing. The Parasympathetic and Sympathetic (P&S) nervous systems prominently affect the onset and progression of HTN, yet P&S measures are not used to assist in management. Our objective was to determine the feasibility of HTN control using P&S-guided
