Cardiovascular Research: Heart disease: Jamming the signal ♦ Safer, faster heart scans in view ♦ Nurse staffing, work environments affect survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest

Heart injury reduced after bariatric surgery but not lifestyle intervention Heart function in morbidly obese patients returns to normal after bariatric surgery but not after lifestyle intervention. The results suggest that bariatric surgery may reduce the risk
Nurse staffing, work environments affect survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest Patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest have low survival rates -- but why do some hospitals achieve higher survival than others? Higher nurse staffing levels and better working conditions may be part of the answer.
Safer, faster heart scans in view T1 mapping technique provides clearer imagery and could be used with a wider range of patients than current techniques as it does not require the rare earth heavy metal Gadolinium.
Heart disease: Jamming the signal A short peptide has been developed that inhibits the activation of a signal pathway in monocytes that enables monocytes to adhere stick to endothelial cells and penetrate sites of acute inflammation.
