Cardiovascular research: Electric assistance for stroke recovery ♦ Blood thinner, antidiabetic drug mix increases hospitalizations ♦Sense of purpose in life linked to lower mortality and cardiovascular risk

Sense of purpose in life linked to lower mortality and cardiovascular risk  People who have a higher sense of purpose in life are at lower risk of death and cardiovascular disease, reports a pooled data analysis
Electric assistance for stroke recovery Robotic therapy works better if stroke patients’ brains are stimulated by electricity
New clinical practice guidelines recommend use of arteries rather than veins in heart bypass surgery New clinical practice guidelines have been released that recommend expanding the use of arteries from the chest and forearm rather than using veins from the leg when performing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery in certain patients
Blood thinner, antidiabetic drug mix increases hospitalizations A common blood thinner warfarin can have a potent interaction in patients treated for diabetes that may land them in the hospital, researchers have discovered.
