The article presents an overview of continuous ST-segment monitoring, which is used to detect silent ischemia in patients. A discussion of guidelines which have been developed for implementing continuous ST-segment monitoring is presented. The importance of using a 12 lead electrocardiogram in continuous ST-segment monitoring is discussed.

    Background The European Society of Cardiology recommends that patients with >10% area of ischemia should receive revascularization. We investigated inter-observer variability for the extent of ischemic defects reported by different physicians and by different software tools, and if interobserver...

    Recruitment of leukocytes in the tissue microvasculature is considered to be a rate-limiting step in ischemia-reperfusion (I/R)-induced inflammation. The objective of this study was to examine the role of mast cells in CXC-chemokine- and I/R-provoked leukocyte recruitment in the colon. Balb/c-...

    OBJECTIVES: Remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a non-invasive and virtually cost-free strategy for protecting the heart against acute ischaemia-reperfusion injury (IRI). We have recently shown that the inhibition of extracellular RNA (eRNA) using non-toxic RNase1 protected the heart...

Patients with the concave...
