  3. Coumadin is a very nasty drug all the way around. I know this will not be popular post for the pharmaceutical company, but it is my opinion if you do not need to absolutely be on it, do not take.

  6. Thousands of adults may be needlessly taking tablets for high blood pressure, doctors say. A panel of experts in the U.S. has recommended that adults over 60 should only be prescribed medicine when their blood pressure levels reach 150 over 90 or higher. This is due to the side effects that blood pressure tablets can cause, such as fainting and falls in older people and interaction with other medicines they are taking. The new guidance was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. In it, the doctors stress they are not changing the definition of high blood pressure: 140

  8. When it comes to improving heart health, the mind can be a powerful tool. For those with heart disease, psychological therapies can decrease the likelihood of heart attack and death. While heart disease therapies involving exercise, diet and medication can improve physical health, the benefits of mental therapies may be less obvious. A new study found that heart disease patients may lower the risk of heart attacks and death if they receive psychological support, including music therapy and talking about their treatment.

  10. An exercise study provides good news for people who don’t like to jog, but want a healthy heart. It suggests that taking a brisk walk in the park, at the mall or on the treadmill may be all it takes to keep the ticker ticking. Duke University researchers found that the amount of exercise may be more important than intensity to improve cardiovascular health. Just as earlier research has indicated, the study of 133 overweight sedentary men and women found that two to three hours of exercise a week at a moderate intensity can greatly reduce cardiovascular disease. Researchers said the fin
  11. Now a study has found that in fact music can strengthen the heart - and improve the recovery of patients suffering from heart disease. Cardiologists said the findings suggested that all people could boost the health of their hearts simply by listening to their favorite tunes. Patients with cardiac disease were divided into three groups. Some were enrolled in exercise classes for three weeks. Others were put in the same classes, but also told to listen to music of their choice at any point for 30 minutes every day. A third group only listened to music, and did not take cardio-vascular exerci
  12. As you age, a waxy substance called plaque (plak) can build up inside your arteries. This condition is called atherosclerosis (ath-er-o-skler-O-sis). Atherosclerosis can affect any artery in the body. When atherosclerosis affects the coronary arteries, the condition is called (CHD) or coronary artery disease. Over time, plaque can harden or rupture (break open). Hardened plaque narrows the coronary arteries and reduces the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. This can cause chest pain or discomfort called angina (an-JI-nuh or AN-juh-nuh). If the plaque ruptures, a blood clot can form on
  13. We will keep you all in our thoughts and pray's. Can you message what hospital she is at?
  14. Hello and welcome. As far as the stents go, you need to ask the cardiologist that did the procedure what type of stent they used. Stents most often used are metal drug eluting stents coated with immune suppressants. But some doctor's have been using what is known as the new bioabsorbable everolimus-eluting stent, or BVS, which made up of two layers of a biodegradable polymer: one that contains the immunosuppressant drug , the other forming a longer-lasting backbone. Over time, the body breaks down and absorbs the polymer, ultimately leaving nothing behind. I would think that some one needs t

  16. Have a heart problem? If it's fixable, there's a good chance it can be done without surgery, using tiny tools and devices that are pushed through tubes into blood vessels. Heart care is in the midst of a transformation. Many problems that once required sawing through the breastbone and opening up the chest for open heart surgery now can be treated with a nip, twist or patch through a tube. These minimal procedures used to be done just to unclog arteries and correct less common heart rhythm problems. Now some patients are getting such repairs for valves, irregular heartbeats, holes in t
  17. A study of 137 mummies has revealed that atherosclerosis, or the hardening and narrowing of the arteries, may have been more common among ancient peoples than previously thought. Overall, researchers found that over a third (34%) of the mummies showed signs of probable or definite atherosclerosis. As with modern populations, older people seemed more likely to show signs of the disease. Atherosclerosis is usually considered to be linked to risk factors such as smoking, obesity, and lack of exercise. However, the researchers suggest that these findings may support the idea of a predisposition
