    mercury changed in the tube. These mercury displacements produced deflections which were then recorded in a photosensitized paper. Using the capillary electrometer, Augustus Waller, a physician-physiologist recorded the first human “cardiogram” or cardiac recording in 1887 by placing electrodes on the chest and back of an individual (Cajavilca and Varon 326). He observed two deflections representing the heart’s depolarization and repolarization. These waves were called V1 and V2, the equivalent of

  • Familial Cardiomyopathies ( Fc )

    5585 Words  | 23 Pages

    Background: Familial Cardiomyopathies (FC) are a collection of cardiac diseases that vary vastly genetically, and pathologically (1, 2). Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common form of FC (2). HCM is diagnosed often with left ventricular hypertrophy without a noticeable increase in external load and smaller ventricular cavity, but with a preserved ejection fraction (3). That is, the percent of blood leaving the left ventricle (5) does not change. Other pathologies include interstitial

    Athletes with abnormal AV conduction characterized by an HV interval >90 ms or a His-Purkinje block should have pacemaker implantation. Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT): SVTs are not more common in athletes than in the general population of a similar age distribution, with the possible exception of atrial fibrillation (AF). Treatment of these SVTs with catheter ablation is likely to achieve a permanent cure and, in general, is preferable to lifelong therapy with pharmacological agents. Atrial

    Abstract—The increase in popularity for wearable technologies has opened the door for an Internet of Things (IoT) solution to healthcare. One of the most prevalent healthcare problems today is the poor survival rate of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests. The objective of this paper is to present a noval way of solving such a big problem by using Mobile IoT devices, Cloud computing technology and Machine learning. Mobile IoT that can collect physical activity such as heart rates and body temperature

As the main etiology behind coronary artery ischemia is the plaque rupture, methods to prevent plaque rupture, plaque stabilization, decreasing plaque formation and searching risk markers for sudden plaque rupture should be discovered. The role of cholesterol in
