130 yrs ago this month, Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, a Black surgeon at Provident Hospital in Chicago whose ancestors were slaves, performed what was then believed to be the first open #heart #surgery. A thread... (1)
The patient, 24yo James Cornish, had been stabbed with a knife in the chest in a saloon scuffle. He was bleeding profusely when he was dropped off at the hospital by a horse-drawn ambulance. (2)
With no diagnostic equipment other than a stethoscope - X-rays would not be discovered for another 2 yrs—Williams examined him. The stab wound was slightly to the left of the breastbone and directly over the right ventricle. (3)

Its not so #cool as it sounds... because of the following,

#Eating #redmeat has been associated with various #health problems, including:
#Cardiovascular disease: High consumption of red meat has been linked to an increased risk of #heart disease due to

the high levels of saturated fat and #cholesterol found in red meat.
#Cancer: Several studies have suggested that high consumption of red meat, particularly processed #meat, can increase the risk of certain cancers, such as colon cancer.
Type 2 #diabetes: Red meat consumption has been linked to an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, potentially due to the high fat content.
#Obesity: High consumption of red meat has been linked to an increased risk of obesity due to its high #calorie and fat content.

#heart #transplant #covid19 #vaccination There is a great deal of consternation about heart transplants and vaccine requirements. This thread is meant to explain to the public why our partners in heart transplant are so incredibly strict.
Heart transplant is one of the most scarce resources that exist. Big reason? A donor has to be deceased for a heart to be available. Even then, a separate medical team has to be sure the heart is healthy enough survive two surgeries (leaving the donor, getting to destination).
If fully functional hearts could be delivered at some point in the far future on a 3d printer, this will no longer be an issue. That’s an active area of research but not a reality.

Canadian guidance on #alcohol consumption
(January 2023)
1. Young people should delay alcohol use for as long as possible.

2. Individuals should not start to use alcohol or increase their alcohol use for health benefits.

3. Any reduction in alcohol use is beneficial.
4. When pregnant or trying to get pregnant, no amount of alcohol is safe
5. When breastfeeding, not drinking is safest
6. Consuming no drinks is associated with better health & better sleep,
7. Three to six drinks/week raise the risk of developing breast, colon & other cancers
8. Seven or more drinks per week increase the risk of #heart disease or #stroke.

9. Each additional drink "radically increases" the risk of these health consequences.

10. Consuming one or two standard drinks weekly will likely not have alcohol-related consequences.

We Need To Base Our Understanding of Reality Upon Reality, Not Manipulation.

Everything You Think You Know About Disease Is Likely Wrong....
In order to understand the world around us as the truth about it is emerging from a 100+ year slumber, it’s going to be important to challenge ideas that have absolutely zero basis in reality.

I will start off by saying that we have been duped - ALL OF US.

My resting #heart rate (RHR) during past last week ranged from 41 to 47 bpm (average HR 45 bpm)

1. Lower HR (without use of medications) has several health-related benefits.
#MedTwitter #fitness #Health Image
2. Middle aged people with RHR >70 bpm have 68% higher risk of death and 20% higher risk of coronary events during 10.5 year follow up as compared to those with RHR <70 bpm.…
3. Compared to men with RHR ≤ 50, those with RHR > 90 had three times higher risk of death (during 16 year follow up)
With RHR as a continuous variable, risk of death increased with 16% per 10 beats per minute (bpm).…

Anti-acidity medicines increase the risk of heart attacks

1. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) like omeprazole, esomeprazole & rabeprazole are commonly used for treating GERD and other acidity-related disorders.
A recent study looked at long-term PPI use and risk of heart diseases.
2. 19,229 adults with type 2 diabetes were followed up for about 11 years.
Long term PPI users had 27% higher risk of coronary artery disease; 34% higher risk of myocardial infarction, 35% higher risk of heart failure & 30% higher risk of all-cause death, as compared to non-users
3. The mechanism of PPI increasing the risk of #heart diseases could be: the effects of PPI on altering gut microbes and their interaction with anti-platelet agents (PPIs may reduce the bio-availability of clopidogrel).

My feeling is that many people in times of crisis (#corona, #EnergyCrisis, #inflation) do not perceive or hardly perceive (correctly) some natural phenomena at night, such as the starry #sky.
This can sometimes be seen beautifully even in big cities like #Berlin (See videos by @MusiciScience on various platforms).

In addition, there are also certain #acoustic #phenomena that probably few people think about. For example, I wondered why I sometimes wake up at night. An #audio spectrum analysis may reveal the cause. Take a look at the video in the last tweet in this thread.

1. You can get all the #exercise you need in just 8 minutes a day if you work out a bit harder, according to a new study.

Just 54 minutes of vigorous exercise per week can lower the risk of early #death from any cause by 36%, and chances of getting #heart disease by 35%. Image
2. Current guidelines recommend 150–300 min of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, 75–150 min of vigorous physical activity, or a combination of both/week. However, 50-75% of population can not fulfil this due to various reasons.
8 min/day should be manageable for majority.
Take home message
Short bouts of vigorous exercises (8-10 min/day) may be a good option for busy people.

Why do a few young, physically active, seemingly healthy people suffer from heart attack?
1. A person with normal body weight, doing regular running, cycling, or working out in gym, is not immune to heart attack, as a few recent reports suggest. Here are some of the reasons why:
2. Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HCM)
HCM accounts for 40% cases of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young athletes. Unfortunately over 80 % of affected individuals are asymptomatic before SCD, which often occurs during exercise or in its aftermath.
#running #fitness
3. Cardiac arrhythmia
About 15-20% cases of SCD occur due to cardiac #arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm). In patients younger than 35, the most common cause of SCD is a fatal arrhythmia, usually in the context of a structurally normal #Heart.

Empagliflozin is now my go-to SGLT2i for pts with #diabetes and #CKD or #CHF, over cana or dapa or ertu.


and EMPEROR-Reduced and EMPEROR-Preserved
EMPA-KIDNEY is unique because it enrolled GFR 20-45 *without* proteinuria whereas others (DAPA CKD, CANVAS) enrolled pts with CKD+proteinuria, though DAPA-CKD conducted a subgroup analysis for UACR < and > 1000
The primary outcome was a composite of progression of #kidney disease (defined as #ESRD, a sustained decrease in eGFR to <10, a sustained decrease in eGFR of ≥40% from baseline, or death
from #renal causes) or death from #cardiovascular causes

Relationship of #distance #run per week to coronary #Heart disease risk factors

1. Guidelines recommend 30 minutes of vigorous #exercise on most days, if not all days. What is the effect if one exceeds these limits? Is it beneficial or harmful?
#running #fitness #marathon
2. Compared with runners who ran less than 16 km (10 miles) per week, long-distance runners (≥80 km/wk) showed:
#2.5 times higher prevalence of HDL>60 (protective against heart disease)
#50% reduction in hypertension
#>50% reduction in need to BP or cholesterol lowering drugs
3. Estimated age-adjusted 10-year coronary heart disease (CHD) risk was 30% lower in runners who averaged more than 64 km/week than in those who averaged less than 16 km/week (42 vs 61 events per 1000 men).

Correlation between resting #heart rate (HR) at admission and long-term #Survival in patients admitted with #stroke
1. High resting HR is a risk factor for stroke and death. In a recent study, patient's HR at admission after stroke was correlated with long term survival & death. ImageImageImage
2. Compared with the reference group (mean heart rate < 60 bpm), risk of #death was 23% higher for mean heart rate 60–69 bpm, 74% higher for mean heart rate 70–79 bpm, 116% higher for mean heart rate 80–89 bpm, and 183% higher for mean heart rate ≥ 90 bpm.
3. Compared with the reference group (mean heart rate < 60 bpm), the risk of cardiovascular death was 18% higher for mean heart rate 60–69 bpm, 57% higher for mean heart rate 70–79 bpm, 98% higher for mean heart rate 80–89 bpm, and 136% higher for mean heart rate ≥ 90 bpm.

Awesome October 2021: A month of 31 half #marathons on 31 consecutive days- sharing my experience
1.Starting from 30th September, and ending on 31st October 2021, I completed 32 runs of 21.1 km or longer, with a total mileage of 817 km in 32 days (average of 25.5 km/day).
This included one Full marathon (42.2 km) on 30th October.
2.The purpose was to test my #endurance, and to see the #physical & #mental effects of long distance #running on 32 consecutive days. I present my observations here.
3. How difficult was it? In reality, it was not difficult. Once you get up and start the run, it is easy to complete. The most important is- you need 2.5 to 3.5 hours time to compete the distance. I could manage that in the mornings between 5 and 8:30 AM.

Doctors in India live 10 years lesser than average population- What can doctors do to save their lives?

Yes, you heard it right. Studies from Kerala and Pune by Indian Medical Association revealed these shocking statistics- doctors die about a decade earlier that the rest.
Life expectancy of a Malayali (native of Kerala) is 74.9 years but according to the IMA study, the mean ‘age of death’ of a Malayali doctor is 61.75 years. Indian doctor’s average lifespan is 55-59 years, almost 10 years lesser than that of the general population (IMA, Pune).
Common causes of death: #heart attacks (27%) and #cancers (25%). Other causes include #infections and #Suicides.
Risk factors for diseases and #death: physical inactivity, #obesity, #overweight, #stress, #sleep deprivation and long working hours are common among #doctors.
