    Sudden bursts of anger may trigger heart attacks, strokes or other cardiovascular events within two hours of a flare-up, a team of U.S. researchers suggest. In a new study published in The European Heart Journal, researchers examined studies that spanned amore-than-18-year period from experts in the medical field. The Harvard School of Public Health team found that cardiovascular events can be triggered by psychological stress, such as an angry outburst, which has “shown to increase heart rate and blood pressure, and vascular resistance.” And people who are obese, smokers, or have a history of heart disease are more susceptible to...

    77-year-old collapsed across street from DC firehouse (Newser) – Marie Mills' father collapsed Saturday afternoon in a shopping center parking lot across the street from a Washington, DC, firehouse—but firefighters didn't rush to his aid, despite repeated pleas for help, and Medric "Cecil" Mills, 77, died of a heart attack. Marie Mills tells WTTG that bystanders were "screaming and hollering" at a firefighter across the street, and three people even ran over to Engine 26, but they were told rescuers could not respond until 911 was called, the Washington Post reports. Sources say that when 911 was called, an...

    For a few days, it seemed that the strange tale of the unidentified jogger who had lain unconscious in a Brooklyn hospital for a week after collapsing in Prospect Park on New Year’s Eve would end happily. When his half brother identified him this week as Rynn Berry, it was too late; he was taken off life support on Thursday. When emergency responders took Mr. Berry, carrying keys and an asthma inhaler but no identification, to the hospital at 1 p.m. on Dec. 31, he had already gone into cardiac arrest and he soon lost brain function.

On a sad note, one of the family members sitting on the section for the Woman Marines platoon 4037 had an apparent heart attack while watching his daughter or granddaughter in her ceremony. His condition is unknown, they did not stop working on him and they took 10 or more minutes once he was in the ambulance and it did NOT leave screaming from the scene. If anyone can tell me...

    Pizza Hut was panned by health campaigners today after unveiling a new “Cheesburger Pizza” that contains nearly 3,000 calories. The pizza is billed as a “fun treat to share” and features ten mini burgers topped with mozzarella embedded around the crust. A large serving contains ten 288-calorie slices, and costs Ł2.50 ($3.98) more than a traditional deep pan. Just half the pizza is enough to account for 72 percent of a woman’s daily allowance of 2,000 calories. The chain's latest “crust innovation” follows others such as the Hot Dog Stuffed Crust, and was first launched at its restaurants in the...

    Yahle, a diesel mechanic from West Carrollton, Ohio, "coded" - a term meaning emergency -- on the afternoon of Aug. 5, after arriving in the hospital that morning in cardiac arrest. A team of doctors rushed to his hospital bedside and used chest compressions, a bag connected to a breathing tube and medications to force blood and oxygen through his body. After 45 minutes, they gave up and declared him dead. "He was truly flatlined at the end of that code. He had no electrical motion, no respiration, and no heart beat, and no blood pressure," says Jayne Testa, director...

According to critical care physician Sam Parnia, modern resuscitation science will soon allow doctors to reanimate people up to 24 hours after their death.At some point, everyone's heart will stop. For most, this is when they begin to die. Doctors succeed in very few cases at bringing the clinically dead back to life. However, more patients could be saved if medical professionals put existing knowledge about the treatment of cardiac arrest to better use, argues critical care physician Sam Parnia, 41, who is leading a revival of research in this field at...

    Dunkin’ Donuts wants to sell you a doughnut sandwich. Hitting stores Friday, the breakfast item is composed of a fried egg, bacon and two glazed doughnuts. It has 360 calories, according to the company website. That’s 60 more than an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's. Coming on the heels of the news that McDonald’s is offering egg whites as a substitution on any of its breakfast items, a glazed donut sandwich at Dunkin’ would appear to be running counter to a healthier-eating America. …

A major crime squad is investigating the death of 52-year-old Badri Patarkatsishvili, whose body was found at his country mansion in Surrey at about 11pm last night. His family said he suffered a heart attack - but Surrey Police have launched an investigation to confirm the exact cause of death after reports of a plot to kill him.

    A simple and inexpensive test that can spot a heart attack waiting to happen could be available next year. Scientists say they are very close to the ‘holy grail of heart medicine’ – a rapid blood test that will pick up if someone is on the cusp of a heart attack. These patients could then be given drugs to thin their blood and prevent the heart attack. The U.S. researchers developing the test believe it will be possible to predict heart attacks two to three weeks in advance. It is hoped the test will cost under Ł65 per person. In...

    New findings from a landmark research study led by Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) -- a collaborative program between Scripps Health and The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) -- shows a promising new blood test may be useful in helping doctors predict who is at risk for an imminent heart attack. Results of the study, titled "Characterization of Circulating Endothelial Cells in Acute Myocardial Infarction," were published this week in Science Translational Medicine. The study concludes that circulating endothelial cells (CEC) from heart attack patients were abnormally large and misshapen and often appeared with multiple nuclei, which indicates that CECs are...

    Small doses of aspirin can lower the risk of heart attack in people who never had heart disease, a new look at the medical evidence shows. But the blood-thinning drug doesn't appear to cut the chances of dying from the disease, at least not enough that researchers can say for certain. And experts warn people to consult their doctor before taking the medication, which increases the risk of bleeding ulcers. "I like to say you have to make the recommendation about aspirin one patient at a time," Dr. Michael L. LeFevre, who was not linked to the study, told Reuters...

Stress generates the so-called fight-or-flight response, which causes sharp upticks in heart rate and blood pressure that can strain the heart.

Their research, led by Dr. Bruce Liang, director of the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center, is published in the Jan. 11 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Cardiologists found that heart attack patients had elevated levels of the protein fragment known as Caspase-3 p17 in their blood. “We’ve discovered a new biomarker for heart attack, and showed that apoptosis, or a particular kind of cell death, is...

    PARIS (AFP) – Heart attack survivors who eat chocolate two or more times per week cut their risk of dying from heart disease about three fold compared to those who never touch the stuff, scientists have reported. Smaller quantities confer less protection, but are still better than none, according to the study, which appears in the September issue of the Journal of Internal Medicine. Earlier research had established a strong link between cocoa-based confections and lowered blood pressure or improvement in blood flow. It had also shown that chocolate cuts the rate of heart-related mortality in healthy older men, along...

    August 07, 2009, 0:00 a.m. Government Medicine KillsThe U.K. and Canada prove it. By Deroy Murdock Imagine that your two best friends are British and Canadian tobacco addicts. The Brit battles lung cancer. The Canadian endures emphysema and wheezes as he walks around with clanging oxygen canisters. You probably would not think: “Maybe I should pick up smoking.” The fact that America is even considering government medicine is equally wacky. The state guides health care for our two closest allies: Great Britain and Canada. Like us, these are prosperous, industrial, Anglophone democracies. Nevertheless, compared to America, they suffer higher...

    Heart attack symptoms vary. Most people know about extreme chest- and left arm pain, although there may be no pain in the chest during a heart attack. Other signs include intense jaw pain, as well as nausea and profuse sweating. The latter may occur less frequently; nevertheless, it is important to be aware of these potential danger signs. What happens if you are sleeping when you have a heart attack? The majority of people (about 60 percent) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, severe pain may wake you from a deep sleep. If...
