QK times (QKs, QKD and QKS-D) in eighty normal subjects of both sexes between 19 and 40 years old were studied. The values obtained were not statistically significantly different in males and females. QKs had a significant negative correlation with heart rate in both sexes. QKD and QKS-D had also significant negative correlation with heart rate in one of the sexes only.

    The article focuses on a study in Great Britain which reveals that failure of nurses to measure the pulse rates when taking blood pressure leads to undetection of patients with arrhythmias. Such study shows that 26% of nurses conduct pulse palpitation. Further, general practitioner (GP) Dr....

    Background: The digestion of food is known to alter the hemodynamics of the body significantly. The purpose of this study was to study the postprandial changes in stroke volume (SV), cardiac output (CO) and left ventricular (LV) longitudinal systolic and diastolic functions measured with tissue...

    POSTURAL ORTHOSTATIC TACHYCARDIA SYNDROME (POTS) IS A disabling orthostatic intolerance that mainly occurs in premenopausal women. Since the tachycardia has been shown to be due to low stroke volume, left ventricular (LV) volumes and mass, these investigators tested the hypothesis that exercise...

    Aortic blood pressure is more meaningful than brachial blood pressures for clinical diagnosis, and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is better predictor for the outcomes than clinical blood pressure monitoring. However, there are few devices which provide continuous central blood pressures...
