provides technologies for the treatment of Afib
and related conditions.
Standard Conventional Treatment in Patients With LV [Left Ventricular] Dysfunction and AF) study, run entirely in patients with HF with reduced ejection fraction and AFib
, showed a statistically significant improvement in patient survival and HF hospitalization after catheter ablation compared with medical management (N Engl J Med.
guidelines for heart failure and AFib
management are updated.
The incidence of AFib
was 5.0 and 4.1 per 1,000 person-years in the ustekinumab and TNF inhibitor groups, respectively, with an adjusted hazard ratio of 1.08 (95% confidence interval, 0.76-1.54).
When it took his reading, Tom's watch said it couldn't check for AFib
because the heart rate was over 120 beats per minute: "If you're not feeling well, you should talk to your doctor," it said.
People with AFib
appeared to lose more ability in two of the three cognitive tests: the DSST, a test of executive function and processing speed, and the WFT, a test of executive function and language.
The study is designed to analyze the impact of Apple Watch on the early detection and diagnosis of AFib
, and the potential to improve outcomes including the prevention of stroke.
"Through Apple Watch people have been able to learn more about their heart health, including discovering they have AFib
. This kind of information empowers customers to follow up with the right treatment or even better, implement healthy habits aimed at prevention," said Jeff Williams, chief operating officer, Apple Inc.
[USA], Sep 22 ( ANI ): According to a new research, black and Latino individuals are paradoxically more likely to experience higher rates of complications and even death as a result of atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib
Patients with nonvalvular AFib
are at increased risk of stroke when blood pools in their heart and forms a clot that can be ejected into the bloodstream.
Previous studies have shown similarly increased rates of AFib
among endurance athletes such as long-distance runners, said researchers, including those from Cleveland Clinic in the US.
Cardiologs is the world's most advanced cloud-based and Artificial Intelligence-powered ECG analysis solution to aid healthcare professionals in screening for arrhythmias such as AFib
using ambulatory ECG monitoring recordings.
