    Sammanfattning : Acute myocardial infarction (AMI), caused by ischaemic heart disease (IHD), is a leading cause of death in both men and women in the western society. Hypertension, diabetes, and smoking are examples of well-known risk factors of IHD, but also there are psychosocial factors, such as stress, vital exhaustion (unusual fatigue, irritability, and demoralization) and depression that have been associated with an increased risk in both genders.

  2. 2. Epidemiology of heart failure and feasibility of home care in patients with worsening chronic heart failure

    Författare :Masoud Shafazand; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Chronic heart failure; mortality; deterioration; hospitalisation; gender; home care; quality-adjusted life years; emergency care; health care costs; ischaemic; non-ischaemic; health-related quality of life; conventional care; acute myocardial infarction; coronary heart disease; heart failure;

    Sammanfattning : Aim: To investigate gender-specific trends in long-term mortality in patients hospitalised for ischaemic and non-ischaemic heart failure (HF) and explore temporal trends in the risk of HF complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Another aim is to characterise patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) that seek an emergency department (ED) because of their deteriorating condition and evaluate the feasibility of home care (HC) in comparison with conventional care (CC) in patients with worsening CHF.

  3. 3. Ischaemic heart disease - risk assessment, diagnosis, and secondary preventive treatment in primary care : with special reference to the relevance of exercise ECG

    Författare :Gunnar Nilsson; Eva Samuelsson; Thomas Mooe; Per Wändell; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Exercise ECG; Ischaemic heart disease; Myocardial infarction; Prehospital delay; Primary care; Prognosis; Referral; Statin; Secondary prevention; Arbets-EKG; hjärtinfarkt; ischemisk hjärtsjukdom; sekundärprevention; Family Medicine; allmänmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Ischaemic heart disease is a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to most general practitioners. We sought to identify diagnostic characteristics and prognoses of patients in primary care that received exercise electrocardiography (ECG). We compared the ECG test results with respect to probability of subsequent cardiologist referrals. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition and aspirin in congestive heart failure

    Sammanfattning : Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors act by decreasing production of angiotensin II and by potentiating the effects of bradykinin by inhibition of its breakdown. Bradykinin exerts part of its effects via vasodilating prostaglandins. Since the cyclooxygenase (COX)-inhibitors, e.g. LÄS MER
