Mice: Linking Aerobic Exercise & Heart Failure

Research Paper Title Aerobic exercise protects against pressure overload-induced cardiac dysfunction and hypertrophy via β3-AR-nNOS-NO activation. Background Aerobic exercise confers sustainable protection against cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure (HF). Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and nitric oxide (NO) are known to play an important role in exercise-mediated cardioprotection, but the mechanism of NOS/NO stimulation during exercise… Read More

Causes & Measures to Prevent Sudden Cardiac Death in Athletes

Research Paper Title Sudden Cardiac Death in Athletes. Abstract Sudden cardiac death is defined as an unexpected death, occurring usually within one hour from onset of symptoms in cases where the death is witnessed and in unwitnessed cases within 24 hours of the individual last being seen alive and well. Sudden cardiac death in athletes is the leading… Read More

Iron Deficiency, Non-Cardiac Intervention & Symptomatic Heart Failure

Research Paper Title Beneficial Effects of Long-term Intravenous Iron Therapy with Ferric Carboxymaltose in Patients with Symptomatic Heart Failure and Iron Deficiency. Background The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefits and safety of long-term i.v. iron therapy in iron-deficient patients with heart failure (HF).

What is the Impact of Repeated, Prolonged Exercise Bouts?

Research Paper Title Impact of Repeated Prolonged Exercise Bouts on Cardiac Function and Biomarkers. Background The present study examined the impact of repeated bouts of prolonged (< 60 min) exercise on left ventricular function and cardiac biomarkers. Methods Ten athletes completed a 15.3-mile hill run on three consecutive days and were assessed before, immediately after,… Read More
