In this article the authors evaluate the work of Zhi-Gang Shao regarding network analysis of human heart dynamics. They further examine the human heartbeat through the associated networks of time series of interval based on the visibility algorithm. Further, they argue that the assortative coefficient of associated networks could distinguish between healthy subjects and patients with congestive heart failure without examining the dependence of the sampled length of time series.

    The article focuses on the role of mitochondrial energizer, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), in the treatment of congestive heart failure. CoQ10 improves the heart's pumping rate and reduces the need for medications. It also acts as a stimulant, offering short-term improvement in heart muscle function. As...
