Novel Wireless Devices for Cardiac Monitoring

Novel Wireless Devices for Cardiac Monitoring | Big Health | Scoop.it

It is likely that the cardiac patient of the future, “wired” with a personalized network of biosensors, will be extremely different from the usual patient today. These biosensors will transmit a wealth of data about the patient’s genomic, metabolomics, and clinical responses to daily stimuli to the patient’s smartphone peripheral brain. Once that information is received, the smartphone will process it using sophisticated and personalized modeling software and will direct the patient to take action, for example, to contact his or her physician, to adjust a medication, or to alert emergency medical services of an impending myocardial infarction. These devices have the potential to revolutionize medicine. The eventual integration and study of these devices in the coming years must carefully examine not only the relative safety and efficacy of this technology relative to conventional care but also the impact of this technology on changing the costs of health care by preventing rehospitalization and empowering patients.

Tomatoes linked with fighting cancer

Tomatoes linked with fighting cancer | Big Health | Scoop.it

Eating tomatoes may lower the risk of prostate cancer, research suggests.

 

Men who consume more than 10 portions of tomatoes each week reduce their risk by about 20%, according to a UK study.

 

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide, with 35,000 new cases and around 10,000 deaths in the UK every year.

Cancer experts recommend eating a balanced diet which is high in fruit and vegetables and low in red and processed meat, fat and salt.

 

Men should still eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, maintain a healthy weight and stay active” - Vanessa Er - Bristol University

 

The Bristol team analysed the diets and lifestyles of around 20,000 British men aged between 50 and 69.

AGING AMERICA: Exercise as the Fountain of Youth

AGING AMERICA: Exercise as the Fountain of Youth | Big Health | Scoop.it

The fitness instructor is about to start pushups, but first she has to move her walker out of the way. The exercisers at this suburban apartment complex are all over 75 and their leader, Hildegard Gigl, will turn 99 in June.

"I'm getting older but I'm not getting old," said Gigl, whose half-hour class includes pushups against a wall and weightlifting with soup cans to "In the Mood" and other Big Band tunes.

Exercise may be the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth, one of the best ways to age happy and well..

Walking can cancel out the deadly effects of sitting behind a desk all day

Walking can cancel out the deadly effects of sitting behind a desk all day | Big Health | Scoop.it
An hour of moderate physical activity per day is enough to cancel out the deadly effect of sitting behind an office desk or watching TV, research has shown. Scientists who analysed data on a million men and women found that sitting for more than eight hours a day without taking exercise significantly increased the risk of dying early. People in this group - who include many thousands of office workers - were up to 60 per cent more likely to die prematurely than more active and less sedentary individuals.

Lyme Disease with cardiac involvement

Lyme Disease with cardiac involvement | Big Health | Scoop.it

Lyme carditis occurs when Lyme disease bacteria enter the tissues of the heart. This can interfere with the normal movement of electrical signals from the heart's upper to lower chambers, a process that coordinates the beating of the heart. The result is something physicians call "heart block," which can be mild, moderate, or severe.

Heart block from Lyme carditis can progress rapidly.

The cases of three patient who had sudden death has been reported byCDC

Warning Signs of a Stroke

Warning Signs of a Stroke | Big Health | Scoop.it

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A STROKE? When the brain does not get enough blood flow, many different signs and symptoms can occur. The amount and type of symptoms depend on what part of the brain is involved. Some of the common signs of stroke include 

Asymmetry in the face or a droop on one side of the face

Weakness on one side of the body (such as an arm, leg, or both)

Numbness or unusual sensations on one side of the body

Trouble speaking (speech is slurred; cannot repeat a simple phrase)

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I NOTICE WARNING SIGNS? Time is the most important factor if you think you are having a stroke. The faster you can get to a hospital, the better your chances of recovery. Therefore, you should call the paramedics right away if you have any of the above warning signs—do not “wait it out” to see if the symptoms get better on their own. The reason that time is very important is that for some strokes, a medication that dissolves blood clots can be given through the bloodstream as treatment. This medication only works during the first few hours after a stroke. After that it is no longer effective and can even cause harmful side effects. Therefore, it is very important, when possible, to record the exact time that you or someone around you first noticed symptoms and the time that you were last well without symptoms.
