and Congestive Heart Failure 16
The intervention is designed to work best with community-dwelling patients aged 65 and older with a nonpsychiatric-related hospital admission who have at least one of the following diagnoses documented in their patient record: congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary artery disease, diabetes, stroke, medical and surgical back conditions (predominantly spinal stenosis), hip fracture, peripheral vascular disease, cardiac arrythmia
, deep venous thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism.
It is an important tool for physicians because atrial fibrillation (AF), a common cardiac arrythmia
, is often intermittent and therefore under diagnosed.
In its program to treat life-threatening cardiac arrythmia
, Nortran has developed several drug candidates suitable for clinical testing as treatments for atrial arrhythmia.
In addition, Prescott provides a history and overview of the company, its newly appointed management team, its revolutionary technology platforms and disposable catheters in the treatment of cardiac arrythmia
disorders as well as insight into the evolving Electrophysiology sector, Cardiac Pathway's primary market and user base.
Given that the ion channels are involved in stimulation and conduction in the heart, the researchers say that malfunction can cause cardiac arrythmias
, which may lead to ventricular fibrillation.
Severe PHP resulting in hypercalcemic crises, seizures, and cardiac arrythmias
are a risk to the expectant mother (17,18).
