Cardiovascular Research: So long, stethoscope? New device, smartphone alter exams ♦ Improving safety, decreasing risks of new blood thinners

Chest pain in female-pattern heart disease is linked with abnormal heart blood flow, demonstrated with a drug commonly used to alleviate chest pain patients with coronary artery disease, which was found to be ineffective in patients with moderate female-pattern heart disease, but may offer some relief for sicker patients.
Improving safety, decreasing risks of new blood thinners By reversing the effects of the blood thinners apixaban and rivaroxaban within minutes, this new antidote may help to save the lives of patients taking blood thinners that experience major bleeding complications.
So long, stethoscope? New device, smartphone alter exams A smartphone-based device known as Heart Buds performed just as well as traditional stethoscopes and better than a disposable model in identifying heart murmurs and other vital sounds during patient exams
Lowering body temperature increases survival, brain function in cardiac arrest patients with non-shockable heart rhythms Lowering the body's temperature in cardiac arrest patients with 'non-shockable' heart rhythms increases survival and brain function. Patients who received the treatment were about three times more likely to survive cardiac arrest and have better neurological function compared to those who did not receive it
