ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the time-domain (SDNN, RMSSD) of heart rate variability (HRV) and heart rate (HR) of young football players in different training sessions. Method: 15 football players voluntarily participated (mean age = 15.5 ± 0.5 years, height= 171.1 ± 7.9 cm, weight= 62.4 ± 8.9 kg, BMI= 21.2 ± 1.9 kg/m2). They performed three different training: speed, coordination, and match formation. The HRV and HR of the participants were measured during warm-up, main training, and cool-down in each of the three different training sessions. Results: There was a significant interaction between time and intervention on RMSSD (Frmat= 2.983) and HR (Frmat t= 4.894). The results show that HR and HRV are affected differently by diverse training practices in football.


Objetivo: determinar el dominio del tiempo (SDNN, RMSSD) de la variabilidad de la frecuencia cardíaca (HRV) y la frecuencia cardíaca (HR) de los futbolistas jóvenes en diferentes entrenamientos. Método: participaron voluntariamente 15 jugadores de fútbol (media de edad = 15.5 ± 0.5 años, altura = 171.1 ± 7.9 cm, peso = 62.4 ± 8.9 kg, IMC = 21.2 ± 1.9 kg / m2), quienes se sometieron a 3 entrenamientos diferentes: velocidad, coordinación y partido de entrenamiento. La HRV y la HR de los deportistas se midieron durante el calentamiento, el entrenamiento principal y el enfriamiento en cada uno de los 3 entrenamientos. Resultados: hubo una interacción significativa entre el tiempo y la intervención en RMSSD (Frmat = 2.983) y HR (Frmat = 4.894). Los resultados indican que la HR y la HRV se ven afectadas de manera diferente por diversas prácticas de entrenamiento en fútbol.

ABSTRACT

Objective. The purpose of this study was to provide appropriate preoperative supportive conditions to improve anxiety and vital signs for patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting -CABG- surgery. Methods. This clinical trial study was performed on 90 patients undergoing CABG surgery in Farshchian Hospital of Hamadan, Iran in 2019. Sample was selected by convenience and were randomly divided into three groups: control (n=30), intervention1 (n=30), and intervention2 (n=30). The control group received only the routine preoperative counseling of ward and admitted to the operating room as usual; the intervention1 and intervention2 groups in addition received another two counseling sessions, then the intervention1 group was admitted in the operating room as usual, but the intervention2 group was admitted by the counselor in the operating room. Data were collected using a three-part questionnaire including demographic characteristics, vital signs chart, and the Spielberger's State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Results. The results showed that there was a significant difference in the mean anxiety of the three groups after admission in the operating room (intervention2 was lower than intervention1 and control groups, p<0.001; and intervention 1 group was lower than control group, p<0.001) and also there was a significant difference between the mean systolic blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate of the three groups (p<0.001) but the mean of the variables of temperature and diastolic blood pressure in the three groups were not significantly different (p=0.59 and p=0.225, respectively). Conclusion. Our results revealed preoperative consultation and admission in the operating room by the consultant can reduce the level of anxiety and stability of vital signs of patients undergoing CABG


Objetivo. Evaluar si las condiciones de apoyo preoperatorias mejoran la ansiedad y los signos vitales para los pacientes sometidos a cirugía de bypass de arterias coronarias (CABG por sus siglas en inglés). Métodos. Este estudio clínico se realizó en 90 pacientes sometidos a cirugía de revascularización coronaria -CABG- en el Hospital Farshchian de Hamadan en Irán. La muestra se seleccionó por conveniencia y se dividió aleatoriamente en tres grupos: control (n=30), intervención1 (n=30) e intervención2 (n=30). El grupo de control recibió solamente la consejería preoperatoria de rutina cuando ingresó a hospitalización y en el momento de admisión en la sala de cirugía; los grupos de intervención1 e intervención2 además de la consejería rutina recibieron otra sesión adicional; y cuando se admitió el grupo de intervención2 en la sala de operaciones, lo acompañó la misma persona que hizo la consejería. Los datos se recopilaron mediante un cuestionario de tres partes que incluyó características demográficas, un cuadro de signos vitales y los puntajes del State-Trait Anxiety Inventory de Spielberger. Resultados. Los hallazgos mostraron que hubo diferencia significativa en el puntaje de ansiedad de los tres grupos después de la admisión en la sala cirugía (en intervención2 fue menor que en los grupos intervención1 y control, p<0.001; y en el grupo de intervención1 fue menor que en el grupo de control, p<0.001). También se encontraron diferencias estadísticamente significantes para las diferencias en la presión arterial sistólica, la frecuencia cardíaca y la frecuencia respiratoria de los tres grupos, pero no para las variables de temperatura y presión arterial diastólica (p=0.59 y p=0.225, respectivamente). Conclusión. Nuestros resultados revelaron que la consulta preoperatoria y la admisión en el quirófano por parte del consultor pueden reducir el nivel de ansiedad y la estabilidad de los signos vitales de los pacientes sometidos a CABG.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Es conocida la capacidad de los fractales estadísticos en la evaluación de la complejidad de diferentes sistemas cuya dinámica pueda ser evaluada a partir de las frecuencias de una variable; para esto, se utiliza la medida de la dimensión fractal estadística, la cual puede ser calculada con la ley de Zipf-Mandelbrot. Esta ley matemática ha sido aplicada en cardiología para evaluar el grado de complejidad de la dinámica cardíaca. En el presente trabajo se aplicó la ley de Zipf-Mandelbrot junto con la metodología diagnóstica desarrollada previamente para evaluar dinámicas cardíacas normales y con enfermedad aguda. Materiales y métodos: Se tomaron 15 registros Holter; 10 con diagnóstico normal y 5 con patologías agudas de pacientes de la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos. Se organizaron jerárquicamente las frecuencias de aparición de las frecuencias cardíacas de cada dinámica en rangos de a 15 lat/min, en busca del comportamiento hiperbólico necesario para la aplicación de la ley de Zipf-Mandelbrot. Posteriormente se realizó una linealización y se obtuvo la dimensión fractal estadística para cada dinámica. Resultados: Los valores de la dimensión fractal estadística para una dinámica cardíaca aguda variaron entre 0.4925 y 0.6061, mientras que para una dinámica normal variaron entre 0.7134 y 0.9749, evidenciando la diferenciación entre ambos grupos. Conclusiones: El comportamiento fractal estadístico de la dinámica cardíaca fue corroborado, de igual forma la pérdida de complejidad para las dinámicas agudas respecto a las dinámicas normales


Background: The capacity of statistical fractals in the evaluation of the complexity of different systems whose dynamics can be evaluated from the frequencies of a variable is known. This is why the measure of the statistical fractal dimension is used, which can be calculated with the Zipf-Mandelbrot law, this mathematical law has been applied in cardiology evaluating the degree of complexity of cardiac dynamics. In the present work, the Zipf-Mandelbrot law was applied together with the diagnostic methodology previously developed to evaluate normal cardiac dynamics and acute disease. Material and methods: 15 Holter records were taken; 10 with normal diagnosis and 5 with acute pathologies of patients of the Intensive Care Unit. The frequencies of occurrence of the heart frequencies of each dynamics were organized hierarchically in ranges of 15 lat/min, in search of the hyperbolic behavior required for the application of the law of Zipf-Mandelbrot. Subsequently, a linearization was performed and the statistical fractal dimension was obtained for each dynamics. Results: The values of the statistical fractal dimension for acute cardiac dynamics varied between 0.4925 and 0.6061, whereas for normal dynamics they varied between 0.7134 and 0.9749, evidencing the differentiation between both groups. Conclusions: The statistical fractal behavior of the cardiac dynamics was corroborated, as well as the loss of complexity for the acute dynamics with respect to the normal dynamics

ABSTRACT

Home cardio-respiratory monitoring began over 40 years ago with the aim of preventing sudden infant death. Although it has been shown that monitoring does not meet this objective, its prescription has been maintained in various clinical situations and with very different criteria. Consensus on the subject has not been able to define precisely the type of monitoring or the time required for different diseases. Among the diseases that still consider the indication of cardio-respiratory monitoring at home are: persistent apnea of prematurity, high-risk BRUE (Brief Resolved Unexplained Events), neurological or metabolic diseases with compromise of the respiratory center, convulsive cough, pathologic gastroesophageal reflux and technology-dependent patients (high flow nasal cannula (CNAF), noninvasive ventilation (NIV), invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) to tracheostomy, and others). A review is presented on the development of cardio-respiratory monitoring at home, highlighting the true usefulness of this technology with a general proposal, which must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and always taking into account the conditions that must be met to perform adequate monitoring and useful.


La monitorización cardio-respiratoria en domicilio se inició hace más de 40 años con el objetivo de prevenir la muerte súbita del lactante. Aun cuando se ha demostrado que la monitorización no cumple este objetivo, se ha mantenido su prescripción en diversas situaciones clínicas y con criterios muy diversos. Consensos acerca del tema no han llegado a definir con precisión el tipo de monitorización ni el tiempo requerido para distintas enfermedades. Dentro de las enfermedades que todavía consideran la indicación de monitorización cardio-respiratoria en domicilio se encuentran: apnea persistente del prematuro, BRUE (episodio breve resuelto inexplicado) de alto riesgo, enfermedades neurológicas o metabólicas con compromiso del centro respiratorio, tos convulsiva, reflujo gastroesofágico patológico y pacientes dependientes de tecnología (cánula nasal de alto flujo (CNAF), ventilación no invasiva (VNI), ventilación mecánica invasiva (VMI) a traqueostomía, y otros). Se presenta una revisión sobre el desarrollo de la monitorización cardio-respiratoria en domicilio, resaltando la verdadera utilidad que tendría esta tecnología con una propuesta general, que debe evaluarse caso a caso y siempre teniendo en cuenta las condiciones que deben cumplirse para realizar una monitorización adecuada y útil.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Temperature is one of the main factors that influences cardiovascular functioning in ectotherms. Hence this study sought to investigate heart rate responses of a freshwater crab species, Poppiana dentata, to different temperature exposures since the species generally reside in habitats of fluctuating physicochemistry. Heart rates were non-invasively determined in juvenile crabs for three temperature regimes, each over an 8-day session; A: temperature exposures of 26 °C (2 days) to 30 °C (3 days) to 26 °C (3 days), B: 26 °C (2 days) to 32 °C (3 days) to 26 °C (3 days) and C: a control at constant 26 °C. Heart rate variations were significant among the regimes (P < 0.05), with the median heart rate being highest for regime B (74 beats per minute or bpm) during the temperature insult (32 °C), relative to regime A (70 bpm) and the control (64 bpm). Notably, a suppression and inversion of the diurnal cardiac patterns occurred for regimes' A and B crabs respectively, with rates from the highest temperature insult not shifting back to pre-insult levels during recovery (26 °C). It is plausible that P. dentata may have compensatory cardiovascular mechanisms that account for these differential heart rate responses, possibly conveying adaptive strategies in its dynamic habitat conditions.


Resumo A temperatura é um dos principais fatores que influenciam o funcionamento cardiovascular dos animais ectotérmicos. Sendo assim, este estudo buscou investigar as respostas de frequência cardíaca de uma espécie de caranguejo de água doce, o Poppiana dentata, após exposição a temperaturas diferentes, visto que esta espécie geralmente reside em habitats de composição físico-química variável. As frequências cardíacas foram determinadas de maneira não invasiva em caranguejos jovens submetidos a três regimes de temperatura, cada um ao longo de uma sessão de oito dias de duração; A: exposição a 26oC (dois dias) para 30 °C (três dias) para 26 °C (dois dias), B: 26 °C (dois dias) para 32 °C (três dias) para 26 °C (três dias) e C: um controle a temperatura constante de 26 °C. As variações de frequência cardíaca foram significativas entre os regimes (P < 0,05), sendo que a frequência cardíaca mediana foi mais alta para o regime B (74 batimentos por minuto ou bpm) durante o insulto térmico (32 °C), em relação ao regime A (70 bpm) e ao controle (64 bpm). Observou-se particularmente uma supressão e uma inversão dos padrões cardíacos diurnos nos caranguejos dos regimes A e B, respectivamente, sem que as frequências do insulto térmico mais alto voltassem aos níveis anteriores ao insulto térmico durante a recuperação (26 °C). É possível que o P. dentata possua mecanismos cardiovasculares compensatórios responsáveis por essas respostas de frequências cardíacas variadas, o que pode indicar estratégias de adaptação às suas condições de habitat dinâmicas.

ABSTRACT

RESUMO O objetivo desta pesquisa foi estabelecer valores médios percorridos para o teste de caminhada de seis minutos em crianças saudáveis no Norte do Brasil. Este foi um estudo experimental, randomizado, cego e transversal que avaliou 63 crianças saudáveis do sexo masculino e feminino, de 10 a 12 anos, que após terem seus dados antropométricos registrados foram treinadas e instruídas para a realização do teste conforme recomendações da American Thoracic Society, após avaliação-padrão. O teste foi realizado numa pista reta de 30 metros, com marcações a cada 3 metros e cones indicando onde o retorno deveria ser feito para a continuidade do teste. Ao final, foi refeita a avaliação pré-teste. Foi observado índice de massa corporal muito baixo nos meninos de 11 anos, e normal nas outras faixas. A frequência cardíaca imediata pós-teste apresentou-se significativamente elevada em todos os grupos (p<0,001), enquanto todos os outros dados cardiovasculares colhidos não apresentaram alterações. As distâncias percorridas foram significativamente inferiores às previstas por equação-padrão para todos os grupos e sexos (p<0,0001). O valor médio percorrido encontrado em meninas foi de 436,30±56,74m e 460,80±63,90m em meninos, enquanto a média geral foi de 445,70±54,10m, abaixo dos valores esperados para a amostra. O resultado obtido pelo grupo estudado, menor que a média esperada, pode ser creditado ao fenótipo regional, mas o Índice de Desenvolvimento muito mais baixo que a média brasileira deve ter sua influência mais bem estudada. Espera-se que os achados contribuam no apontamento de valores de referência do teste em crianças do Norte brasileiro.


RESUMEN El presente estudio tuvo como objetivo establecer los valores medios recorridos por niños sanos en el Norte de Brasil en la prueba de caminata de seis minutos. Este estudio es experimental, aleatorizado, ciego y transversal, que evaluó a 63 niños y niñas sanos/as, de edades entre 10 y 12 años, y tras registrados sus datos antropométricos recibieron capacitación e instrucción para realizar la prueba según lo recomendado por American Thoracic Society, después de la evaluación estándar. La prueba se realizó en una pista recta de 30 metros, con marcas cada 3 metros y conos que indicaban dónde debe realizarse el retorno para la continuidad de la prueba. Al final, se rehízo la evaluación previa a la prueba. Se observó un índice de masa corporal muy bajo en niños de 11 años, pero normal en otros grupos de edad. La frecuencia cardíaca inmediata posprueba fue significativamente elevada en todos los grupos (p<0,001), mientras que no cambiaron los demás datos cardiovasculares recopilados. Las distancias recorridas fueron significativamente más bajas que las predichas por la ecuación estándar para los grupos y géneros (p<0,0001). Los valores medios encontrados fueron de 436,30±56,74m en las niñas y 460,80±63,90m en los niños, mientras que el promedio general fue de 445,70±54,10m, por debajo de los valores esperados para la muestra. El resultado obtenido en el grupo estudiado, inferior al promedio esperado, puede acreditar al fenotipo regional, pero el Índice de Desarrollo mucho más bajo que el promedio brasileño debe tener su influencia mejor estudiada. Se espera que los hallazgos contribuyan al establecimiento de valores de referencia para la prueba en niños del Norte de Brasil.


ABSTRACT The objective of this research was to establish mean values covered for the six-minute walk test in healthy children in Northern Brazil. This was an experimental, randomized, blind and cross-sectional study that evaluated 63 healthy male and female children, aged 10 to 12 years, who after having their anthropometric data recorded were trained and instructed to perform the test as recommended by the American Thoracic Society, after standard assessment. The test was carried out on a straight track of 30 meters, with markings every 3 meters and cones indicating where the return should be made for the test continuity. At the end, the pre-test evaluation was redone. Very low body mass index was observed in 11-year-old boys, and normal in other age groups. The post-test immediate heart rate was significantly elevated in all groups (p<0.001), while all other cardiovascular data collected did not change. The distances covered were significantly lower than those predicted by the standard equation for all groups and sexes (p<0.0001). The average value found in girls was 436.30±56.74m and 460.80±63.90m in boys, while the general average was 445.70±54.10m, below the expected values for the sample. The result obtained by the studied group, less than the expected average, can be credited to the regional phenotype, but the Development Index much lower than the Brazilian average should have its influence better studied. The findings are expected to contribute to the establishment of reference values for the test in children from northern Brazil.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes and the incidence of permanent pacemaker implantation after catheter ablation in patients with of atrial fibrillation (AF) and sinus node dysfunction (SND).METHODS: Among 3,068 total consecutive patients who underwent AF catheter ablation (AFCA), this study included 222 (9.5%; men 53.2%, 63.7±9.2 years of age, 81.5% paroxysmal AF) with underlying SND and a regular rhythm follow-up. We analyzed the rhythm outcomes, changes in the mean heart rate or heart rate variability, and permanent pacemaker implantation rate.RESULTS: During 47.5±28.8 months of follow-up, 25 (11.3%) patients received pacemaker implantations due to symptomatic SND. More than half (56.0%, 14/25) underwent a pacemaker implantation within 3 months of the AFCA, and the annual pacemaker implantation rate was 2.0% afterwards. Both the early (68.0% vs. 31.0%, p<0.001) and clinical AF recurrence (68.0% vs. 32.5%, p=0.001) rates and continuous antiarrhythmic drug use after 3 months (44.0% vs. 24.4%, p=0.036) were significantly higher in patients requiring pacemaker implantations than those that did not. An anterior linear ablation (odds ratio [OR], 9.37 [3.03–28.9]; p<0.001) and the E/Em (OR, 1.15 [1.02–1.28]; p=0.018) were independently associated with permanent pacemaker implantations after AFCA in patients with AF and SND.CONCLUSIONS: After AFCA in patients with AF and SND, 1 of 9 patients needed a pacemaker implantation and half needed implantations within 3 months. The AF recurrence rate was significantly higher in those who required pacemaker implantations after the AFCA.

ABSTRACT

This study reports the clinical use of two sevoflurane-based anesthetic techniques in dogs undergoing craniectomy. Twenty-one animals undergoing elective rostrotentorial or transfrontal craniectomy for brain tumor excision, anesthetized with sevoflurane, were enrolled in this retrospective, observational study. Anesthetic records were allocated to two groups: Sevo-Op (sevoflurane and short acting opioid infusion): 8 dogs and Sevo-Dex (sevoflurane and dexmedetomidine infusion): 13 dogs. Average mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate, end-tidal carbon dioxide, end-tidal sevoflurane and intraoperative infusion rates during surgery were calculated. Presence of intra-operative and post-operative bradycardia, tachycardia, hypotension, hypertension, hypothermia, hyperthermia was recorded. Time to endotracheal extubation, intraoperative occurrence of atrioventricular block, postoperative presence of agitation, seizures, use of labetalol and dexmedetomidine infusion were also recorded. Data from the two groups were compared with Fisher's exact test and unpaired t tests with Welch's correction. Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated for categorical variables. Intra-operatively, MAP was lower in Sevo-Op [85 (± 6.54) vs. 97.69 (± 7.8) mmHg, p = 0.0009]. Time to extubation was longer in Sevo-Dex [37.69 (10–70) vs. 19.63 (10–25), p = 0.0033]. No differences were found for the other intra-operative and post-operative variables investigated. Post-operative hypertension and agitation were the most common complications (11 and 12 out of 21 animals, respectively). These results suggest that the infusion of dexmedetomidine provides similar intra-operative conditions and post-operative course to a short acting opioid infusion during sevoflurane anesthesia in dogs undergoing elective rostrotentorial or transfrontal intracranial surgery.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To provide a standardized protocol for the measurement of cervical strain elastography, present its reproducibility, and analyze baseline clinical factors affecting the measurement of elastographic parameters.METHODS: This study was performed by the Korean Research Group of Cervical Elastography. We enrolled pregnant women according to our study protocol. After measuring the cervical length, elastography was performed using the E-Cervix™ quantification tool to measure the strain of the cervix using intrinsic compression. We evaluated 5 elastographic parameters, namely, the strain of the internal os of the cervix (IOS), strain of the external os of the cervix (EOS), ratio of the strain of IOS and EOS, elasticity contrast index, and hardness ratio. For baseline clinical factors, we examined the maternal body mass index, blood pressure, heart rate, uterine artery Doppler indices, and fetal presentation.RESULTS: We established a specific protocol for the measurement of cervical elastography using the E cervix program. For all elastographic parameters, the intra-observer intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) ranged from 0.633 to 0.723 for single measures and from 0.838 to 0.887 for average measures, and the inter-observer ICC ranged from 0.814 to 0.977 for single measures and from 0.901 to 0.988 for average measures. Regression analysis showed that the measurement of the elastographic parameter was not affected by baseline clinical factors.CONCLUSION: We present a standardized protocol for the measurement of cervical elastography using intrinsic compression. According to this protocol, reproducibility was acceptable and the measurement of elastographic parameters was not affected by the baseline clinical factors studied.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the efficacy of three intraoral topical anesthetics in reducing the injection needle prick pain from local anesthetic among children aged 7–11 years old.METHODS: It is a prospective, Interventional, parallel design, single-blind, randomized clinical trial in which subjects (n=90) aged 7–11 years were included in the study based on an inclusion criteria. Subjects were divided into three groups based on computer-generated randomization with an allocation ratio of 1:1:1. Groups A, B, and C received benzocaine 20% jelly (Mucopain gel, ICPA health products Ltd, Ankleshwar, India), cetacaine anesthetic liquid (Cetylite Industries, Inc, Pennsauken, NJ), and EMLA cream (2% AstraZeneca UK Ltd, Luton, UK), respectively, according to manufacturer's instructions, for 1 minute prior to local anesthetic injection. After application of topical anesthetic agent, for all the groups, baseline pre-operative (prior to topical anesthetic administration) and post-operative scores (after local anesthetic administration) of pulse rate was recorded using Pulse oximeter (Gibson, Fingertip Pulse Oximeter, MD300C29, Beijing Choice Electronic). Peri-operative (i.e., during the administration of local anesthesia) scores were recorded using Face, Legs, Activity, Cry, Consolability (FLACC) Scale, Modified Children hospital of Eastern Ontario Pain Scale (CPS) behavior rating scale, and Faces Pain Scale (FPS-R) – Revised (For self-reported pain). Direct self-reported and physiological measures were ascertained using FPS-R – Revised and Pulse oximeter, respectively, whereas CPS and FLACC scales assessed behavioral measures. To test the mean difference between the three groups, a one way ANOVA with post hoc tests was used. For statistical significance, a two-tailed probability value of P < 0.05 was considered as significant.RESULTS: The Cetacaine group had significantly lower pain scores for self-report (P < 0.001), behavioral, and physiological measures (P < 0.001) than the other two groups. However, there was no significant difference between the Benzocaine group and EMLA group during palatal injection prick.CONCLUSION: Cetacaine can be considered as an effective topical anesthetic agent compared to benzocaine 20% jelly (Mucopain gel) and EMLA cream.

ABSTRACT

This study aimed to evaluate the viability of using a non-invasive digital monitor to monitor heart rate (HR) and motility during the embryonic development of Pantanal alligator (Caiman yacare) using Egg Buddy ® , at different incubation temperatures. The collection of the eggs followed the Ranching system and egg identification, transportation, and incubation were performed with the required care; all eggs were incubated with 90% humidity at 29°C for the first 45 days. Thereafter, the incubation temperature was either maintained at 29°C, increased to 33°C or maintained at 29°C and embryos simultaneously treated with 4-aminopyridine on days 46, 47, 48, and 49 (29°C-4AP). Embryo movement was measured with a digital non-invasive monitor on days 30, 35, 42, 49, 56, and 60, at which point embryos were sacrificed. In the statistical analysis no differences were observed between the groups for the temperature (33°C and 29°C); for motility, a difference was observed at day 49 for the 29°C-4AP group. This revealed that the non-invasive evaluation method can be used to verify embryonic motility and HR effectively in Caiman yacare embryos.(AU)

ABSTRACT

This study aims at evaluating the effects of electrolytes, glucose and cortisol levels over heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) in healthy newborn calves. Seventeen healthy Holstein calves were evaluated during their first month of life, and the plasma concentrations of glucose, cortisol, calcium, magnesium, inorganic phosphorus, sodium and potassium were analyzed. HRV indexes were determined in the time and frequency domains through the analysis of neonatal electrocardiogram recordings. In the first day, low blood levels of phosphorus presented a strong correlation with the HR and the increased high-frequency components of HRV. The plasma concentrations of magnesium decreased significantly throughout the 35 days, revealing a positive association with a decreasing low-frequency components of HRV at day 28. There was a strong correlation between HR, HRV indexes, some plasma electrolytes, glucose and cortisol during the studied period. Variations in the concentrations and correlations observed may be attributed to the adaptive neonatal period in calves.(AU)


Este estudo teve como objetivo avaliar os efeitos dos níveis de eletrólitos, glicose e cortisol sobre a frequência cardíaca (FC) e a variabilidade da frequência cardíaca (VFC) em bezerros recém-nascidos e saudáveis. Dezessete bezerros da raça Holandesa foram avaliados durante o primeiro mês de vida e foram analisadas as concentrações plasmáticas de glicose, cortisol, cálcio, magnésio, fósforo inorgânico, sódio e potássio. Os índices VFC foram determinados em domínios de tempo e frequência por meio da análise de gravações do eletrocardiograma neonatal. No primeiro dia, baixos níveis sanguíneos de fósforo correlacionaram-se fortemente com FC e aumento dos componentes de alta frequência da VFC. As concentrações plasmáticas de magnésio diminuíram significativamente ao longo dos 35 dias, revelando correlação positiva com a diminuição dos componentes de baixa frequência da VFC no dia 28. Houve uma forte correlação entre FC, índices de VFC, eletrólitos plasmáticos, glicose e cortisol durante o período estudado. As variações nas concentrações e correlações observadas podem ser atribuídas ao período neonatal adaptativo em bezerros.(AU)

ABSTRACT

The allometric relationship between bodyweight (BW) and heart rate (HR) has been described as inversely proportional in domestic species, but that has been refuted. The relationship between HR and electrocardiographic variables is described in literature. However, studies about the variation and influence of factors on the hemodynamic and electrocardiographic parameters in dogs are not abundant. As the metabolic rate is defined as the production and dissipation of heat by the body surface area (BSA) in m², it is essential to define that relationship. A retrospective study was conducted to analyze the correlation between HR, ECG parameters and BW in dogs. One thousand electrocardiographic tracings were analyzed in addition to the ECG parameters and clinical data such as gender, age and bodyweight. The determination of BSA was performed as follows: BSA (m2) = (10.1 x bodyweight 0.67) X 10-4. When the unified groups were analyzed, there was a negative but weak correlation (r= -0.14, P< 0.0001) between bodyweight and HR. There were differences between weight groups regarding electrocardiographic variables. There is no allometric relationship between BW and HR in dogs. Weight was associated with changes in ECG variables.(AU)


A relação alométrica entre peso corporal (PC) e frequência cardíaca (FC) foi descrita como inversamente proporcional em animais domésticos, mas isso tem sido refutado. A relação entre FC e variáveis eletrocardiográficas é descrita na literatura. No entanto, estudos sobre a variação e a influência de fatores nos parâmetros hemodinâmicos e eletrocardiográficos em cães não são abundantes. A taxa metabólica é definida como a produção e dissipação de calor pela área de superfície corporal (ASC), de modo que é essencial definir essa relação. Foi realizado um estudo retrospectivo para analisar a correlação entre FC, parâmetros eletrocardiográficos (ECG) e peso corporal em cães. Foram analisados mil traçados eletrocardiográficos, além dos parâmetros de ECG e dados clínicos, como gênero, idade e peso corporal. A determinação da ASC foi realizada da seguinte forma: ASC (m 2 ) = (10,1x peso corporal 0,67 ) x 10 -4 . Quando os grupos unificados foram analisados, houve uma correlação negativa, porém fraca (r= -0,14, P<0,0001) entre PC e FC. Houve diferenças entre os grupos de peso em relação às variáveis eletrocardiográficas. Não há relação alométrica entre PC e FC em cães. O peso foi associado a alterações nas variáveis de ECG.(AU)

ABSTRACT

This study aimed to evaluate comparatively the effects of propofol or isoflurane on hemodynamic variables in piglets that received inspired oxygen fraction (FIO2) of 0.5 under spontaneous ventilation. Therefore, sixteen piglets weighing 16±1.1kg, were randomly divided into two groups: GI (Isoflurane and FIO2 of 0.5) and GP (Propofol and FIO2 of 0.5). Heart rate (HR), systolic, diastolic and mean arterial pressure (SAP, DAP and MAP), central venous pressure (CVP), cardiac output (CO), mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) and mean capillary pulmonary pressure (mCPP) were assessed 40 minutes after anesthetic induction (T0), followed by 15 minutes intervals (from T15 to T60). The variables cardiac index (CI), stroke volume (SV), stroke index (SI), total peripheral resistance (TPR), total peripheral resistance index (TPRI), pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), and pulmonary vascular resistance index (PVRI) were calculated. SAP and TPRI were significantly different between groups at T30 and T60 (P< 0.05) with higher GP values being recorded. There were no differences in the other variables, however, GP presented mean closer to normality on most of the analyzed variables. Therefore, we conclude that total intravenous anesthesia with propofol presented greater stability of the hemodynamic variables evaluated.(AU)


O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar comparativamente os efeitos do propofol ou do isoflurano sobre as variáveis hemodinâmicas em leitões que receberam fração inspirada de oxigênio (FIO2) de 0,5 sob ventilação espontânea. Dezesseis leitões, pesando 16±1,1kg, foram divididos aleatoriamente em dois grupos: GI (isoflurano e FIO2 de 0,5) e GP (propofol e FIO2 de 0,5). A frequência cardíaca (FC), a pressão arterial sistólica, a diastólica e a média (PAS, PAD e PAM), a pressão venosa central (PVC), o débito cardíaco (DC),a pressão média da artéria pulmonar (PAPm) e a pressão média capilar pulmonar (PCPm) foram avaliados 40 minutos após a indução anestésica (T0), seguida por intervalos de 15 minutos (de T15 a T60). As variáveis índice cardíaco (IC), volume sistólico (VS), índice sistólico (SI), resistência periférica total (RPT), índice de resistência periférica total (IRPT), resistência vascular pulmonar (RVP) e índice de resistência vascular pulmonar (IRVP) foram calculadas. PAS e IRPT foram significativamente diferentes entre os grupos em T30 e T60 (P<0,05) com maiores valores de GP sendo registrados. Não houve diferenças nas demais variáveis, entretanto o GP apresentou médias próximas da normalidade na maioria das variáveis analisadas. Portanto, concluiu-se que a anestesia intravenosa total com propofol apresentou maior estabilidade das variáveis hemodinâmicas avaliadas.(AU)

ABSTRACT

O presente manuscrito teve por objetivo a revisão de literatura sobre os efeitos do destreinamento (DT) no sistema cardiovascular e em fatores de risco cardiovasculares, tais como massa corporal, adiposidade e perfil lipídico. Para isso, uma ampla pesquisa da literatura nas bases de dados PubMed, Scopus e Web of Science foi realizada, e o conjunto de dados mostrou que o DT promove reversão das adaptações cardiovasculares obtidas com o treinamento físico, tais como redução do VO2máx, do débito cardíaco máximo, do volume sistólico, do volume sanguíneo e da massa ventricular. Além disso, o DT induz aumento da frequência cardíaca de repouso e submáxima, da resistência vascular periférica e da pressão arterial. O curso temporal para que tais efeitos cardiovasculares ocorram é amplo, podendo ocorrer a partir da segunda semana de DT até três meses após o DT. O DT também gera prejuízos aos fatores de risco cardiovasculares, tais como aumento da massa corporal e da adiposidade, aumento do colesterol total, LDL e VLDL, e redução do HDL. Enquanto os efeitos na massa corporal aparecem após quatro semanas de DT, as mudanças no perfil lipídico são mais precoces, com apenas uma semana de DT


The objective of this manuscript is to review the literature about the effects of detraining (DT) on the cardiovascular system and on cardiovascular risk factors such as body mass, adiposity and lipid profile. For this, a wide literature search in the PubMed, Scopus and Web of Science databases was performed, and the data showed that DT promotes the reversal of cardiovascular adaptations obtained with physical training, such as reduction in VO2 max, cardiac output, ejection fraction, blood volume and ventricular mass. In addition, DT induces an increase in resting and submaximal heart rates, peripheral vascular resistance and blood pressure. The timeframe for such cardiovascular effects to be seen is long, which may occur from the second week of DT to 3 months after DT. DT also causes damage to cardiovascular risk factors by inducing an increase in body mass and adiposity, an increase in total cholesterol, LDL and VLDL, and a reduction in HDL. While effects on body mass appear after 4 weeks of DT, changes in lipid profile appear earlier, with only 1 week of DT

ABSTRACT

O exercício físico é recomendado no tratamento da hipertensão arterial. Agudamente, a execução do exercício promove aumento da pressão arterial (PA), mas, no período de recuperação pós-exercício, é possível evidenciar redução da PA e, principalmente, após um período de treinamento físico crônico, pode haver diminuição da PA clínica e de 24 horas dos hipertensos. Apesar desses efeitos serem conhecidos, sua magnitude e mecanismos dependem do tipo de exercício executado e de suas características. Este artigo revê os efeitos agudos e crônicos clássicos do exercício aeróbico e os efeitos mais recentemente estudados dos exercícios resistidos isométrico e dinâmico na PA, seus mecanismos e fatores de influência, ressaltando os pontos que embasam as recomendações atuais sobre o uso do exercício na hipertensão arterial. O conhecimento atual demonstra que: 1) o exercício aeróbico promove aumento da PA sistólica durante sua execução, gera hipotensão pós-exercício clinicamente relevante e reduz a PA clínica e de 24 horas após o treinamento; 2) o exercício resistido isométrico promove aumento progressivo da PA sistólica e diastólica durante sua execução, não produz hipotensão pós-exercício consistente e reduz a PA clínica após o treinamento, mas esse efeito hipotensor ocorre com um protocolo específico de exercício de handgrip; e 3) o exercício resistido dinâmico promove grande aumento da PA sistólica e diastólica durante sua execução, gera hipotensão pós-exercício cuja relevância clínica ainda precisa ser comprovada e parece diminuir a PA clínica, mas não a ambulatorial, após o treinamento. Face a esses conhecimentos, o treinamento aeróbico complementado pelo resistido dinâmico é recomendado na hipertensão


Physical exercise is recommended for hypertension treatment. Acutely, exercise execution increases blood pressure (BP), but, during the recovery period, BP decreases, and after a chronic training period, clinic and ambulatory BP may decrease in hypertensives. Despite these known effects of exercise, their magnitude and mechanisms depend on the type of exercise and its characteristics. This article reviews the classical acute and chronic effects of aerobic exercise and the more recent knowledge about isometric and dynamic resistance exercises on BP, its mechanisms and factors of influence, highlighting the aspects underlying exercise recommendations for hypertension. Current scientific knowledge shows that: 1) aerobic exercise increases systolic BP during its execution, produces a clinically significant post-exercise hypotension, and chronically decreases clinic and 24-hour BP; 2) isometric resistance exercise produces a progressive increase in systolic and diastolic BP during its execution, does not promote consistent post-exercise hypotension, and decreases clinic BP after training, but this hypotensive effect results from a specific protocol of isometric handgrip; and 3) dynamic resistance exercise produces a huge progressive increase in systolic and diastolic BP during its execution, promotes post-exercise hypotension with questionable clinical relevance, and seems to decrease clinic but not ambulatory BP after training. Based on this current knowledge, regular aerobic exercise complemented by dynamic resistance exercise is recommended for hypertension

ABSTRACT

The study is based on the fact that left atrial (LA) volume measurement is a marker of the presence of diastolic dysfunction and that Vitamin D deficiency may be associated with ventricular remodeling, worsening of left ventricular (LV) diastolic and systolic function, and activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Objective: To evaluate whether LAV changes are related to vitamin D deficiency. Method: A cross-sectional, population-based, unicentric study in which 640 patients over 45 years of age enrolled in the Niterói's Médico de Família program, RJ, were evaluated. Patients were submitted to tissue Doppler echocardiography to evaluate the parameters of diastolic and systolic function and vitamin D dosage. The presence or absence of hypovitaminosis D associated with structural and functional cardiac changes was compared between each group. A p < 0.05 value was considered as an indicator of statistical significance. Results: Of the 640 individuals analyzed, hypovitaminosis D was confirmed in 39.2% of the patients, of whom 34.8% had diastolic dysfunction. The most relevant echocardiographic parameters that were statistically significant were non-indexed AEDs and LAV, E'/A' and E wave deceleration time, which were associated with the presence of hypovitaminosis D (P < 0.01). Conclusion: The study of the association of hypovitaminosis D and the appearance of structural and functional cardiac abnormalities may contribute to the discussion of the adoption of one more criterion to select individuals at risk of developing clinical cardiac insufficiency in primary care since, with the use of echocardiography, the subclinical condition of cardiac involvement, with prognostic and treatment implications for the referred patients with hypovitaminosis D, can be identified early

ABSTRACT

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends as a weekly "target dose" of exercise 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of intense exercise. Public health policies have prioritized the practice of exercise as a strategy for disease prevention and health promotion, with health professionals as their main promoters. Objective: To assess the interaction between the amount of exercise per week and the knowledge about recommendations for fighting a sedentary lifestyle among health care professionals attending a congress of cardiology. Methods: Participants of the 2017 Rio de Janeiro Society of Cardiology Congress were interviewed. Knowledge about the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations for fighting a sedentary lifestyle was assessed by asking participants the question: "How much weekly exercise is recommended by the WHO?" Responders were stratified by the weekly exercise load reported. A multivariate logistic model was created to determine independent predictors of knowledge. Results: A total of 426 participants were interviewed (45.5% men, median age 31 years, 37.8% physicians, 65.8% of the physicians were cardiologists). The overall knowledge level was 44.6%; 38.1%, 52.7% and 56.6% among non-physicians, non-cardiologists and cardiologists, respectively (p = 0.002). Of all participants, 21.8% were inactive, 15% were lightly active, 34.7% moderately active and 28.4% highly active, and the percentage of individuals who gave a correct answer to the question on exercise recommendations was 30.1%, 42%, 48% and 52.9% respectively (p < 0.0001). In the multivariate analysis, being highly active (OR = 2.25, IC95%, 1.238 - 4.089), moderately active (OR = 1.93, IC 95% 1.105 - 3.39) and being a cardiologist (OR = 2.01, IC 95% 1.243 - 3,267) were predictors of knowledge. Conclusions: There was a linear association between exercise level and knowledge about the WHO recommendations on exercise. Policies to stimulate the practice of exercise among health professionals can positively impact campaigns for reducing sedentary lifestyle in the general population

ABSTRACT

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation seems to be a promising option to intensify the rehabilitation and improve the exercise capacity of patients in the immediate postoperative period of cardiac surgery. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the hemodynamic (heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and mean blood pressure) and respiratory (respiratory rate and oxygen saturation) responses to neuromuscular electrical stimulation in the immediate postoperative period in patients submitted to cardiac surgery and to verify its feasibility and safety. Methods: This is a pilot randomized controlled trial, wherein critical patients in the immediate postoperative period of cardiac surgery were randomly assigned to a control group, using sham neuromuscular electrical stimulation, or an experimental group, submitted to neuromuscular electrical stimulation sessions (FES), for 60 min, with a 50-Hz frequency, 200-µs pulse duration, time on: 3 s, and time off: 9 s. Data distribution was evaluated by the Shapiro-Wilk test. The analysis of variance was used and a p-value < 0.05 was considered significant. Results: Thirty patients were included in the study. The neuromuscular electrical stimulation was applied within the first 23.13 ± 5.24 h after cardiac surgery, and no changes were found regarding the hemodynamic and respiratory variables between the patients who underwent neuromuscular electrical stimulation, and those in the control group. Conclusions: In the present study, neuromuscular electrical stimulation did not promote changes in hemodynamic and respiratory responses of patients in the immediate postoperative period of cardiac surgery

Objetivos: Determinar la correlación entre saturación de oxígeno, frecuencia cardiaca y respiratoria durante los primeros 720 minutos de vida en recién nacidos a término a 3 400 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Métodos: Estudio observacional, prospectivo. Se incluyó a recién nacidos de parto eutócico a término del servicio de neonatología de un hospital de Cusco-Perú durante octubre y diciembre del 2016. Se evaluó la saturación de oxígeno, frecuencia cardiaca y respiratoria a los 5, 30, 120, 360, 480 y 720 minutos después del nacimiento. Se realizó un análisis descriptivo y se calcularon las correlaciones entre las variables utilizando el coeficiente de Correlación de Pearson. Se consideró significativos los valores p<0,05. Resultados: La media de saturación de oxígeno, frecuencia cardiaca y frecuencia respiratoria fue estable a las dos horas. Se obtuvo una correlación significativa entre la frecuencia cardiaca y saturación de oxígeno a los 5, 30, 120, 360 y 720 minutos. La frecuencia respiratoria y saturación de oxígeno se correlacionó significativamente a los 5, 30, 480 y 720 minutos. Conclusiones: La correlación entre la saturación de oxígeno, frecuencia cardiaca y frecuencia respiratoria es adecuada en distintos periodos. Este estudio contribuye a conocer mejor la adaptación a la vida extrauterina del recién nacido en esta población de altura(AU)


Introduction: Newborns adaptation to extrauterine life is important, especially in high altitude populations where the characteristics are different from sea level populations. Objectives: To estimate the correlation between oxygen saturation, heart and respiratory frequency during the first 720 minutes of life in term newborns at 3 400 meters above sea level. Methods: An observational, prospective study was performed. Newborns from eutocic delivery at term that were born during October and December 2016 in the neonatology service at Cusco-Peru Hospital were included in the study. Oxygen saturation, heart frequency and respiratory frequency were assessed at 5, 30, 120, 360, 480 and 720 minutes after birth. A descriptive analysis was performed and the correlations among the variables were calculated using Pearson's correlation coefficient test. Values p <0.05 were considered significant. Results: Mean oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiratory rate were stable at two hours. A significant correlation was obtained between heart rate and oxygen saturation at 5, 30, 120, 360 and 720 minutes. Respiratory frequency and oxygen saturation correlated significantly at 5, 30, 480 and 720 minutes. Conclusions: Correlation between oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiratory rate are adequate in different periods. This study contributes to better understand the adaptation of newborns in these high altitude populations(AU)
