Free Pulse Checks for Londoners during Global AF Awareness Week

More than 150,0000 Londoners have the most common type of irregular heartbeat, which is called Atrial Fibrillation or AF, and are at higher risk of a stroke. Not everyone with AF has symptoms and a simple pulse rhythm check could save their life.

New model estimates odds of events that trigger sudden cardiac death

A new computational model of heart tissue allows researchers to estimate the probability of rare heartbeat irregularities that can cause sudden cardiac death. The model, developed by Mark Walker and colleagues from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, and IBM Research, Yorktown Heights, NY, is presented in PLOS Computational Biology. An increased risk of sudden cardiac death is associated with some heart diseases. It occurs when an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) interferes with normal electrical signaling in the heart, leading to cardiac arrest. Previous research has shown that simultaneous, spontaneous calcium release by clusters of adjacent heart cells can cause premature heartbeats that trigger these deadly arrhythmias.

Public health initiatives improve bystander response for cardiac arrest

Public health initiatives focusing on CPR and first-responder training were associated with increases in bystander-initiated CPR and defibrillation and increased survival, study data show. “Little is known about the influence of public health initiatives, including widespread training of laypersons in CPR and first responders in high-performance CPR and automated external defibrillator use, to improve bystander and first-responder resuscitation efforts in patients who experience at-home cardiac arrest,” Christopher B. Fordyce, MD, MHS, MSc, of the division of cardiology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and colleagues wrote. “In fact, there are concerns that expanded CPR training may not correct the large fraction of cardiac arrests that occur at home.”
