BACKGROUND: While patients with heart failure (HF) with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF) constitutes a global health crisis the incidence, prevalence and prognosis of the disease may differ depending on the continent and country. OBJECTIVE: To profile, analyze and compare cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) data of patients with HFrEF between Italian and Brazilian cohorts. METHODS: In this observational study, a total of 630 patients with clinical and functional diagnosis of HFrEF (315 patients from Brazil and 315 patients from Italy) performed CPET...

BACKGROUND: Maintaining physical activity is challenging after cardiac surgery. Postsurgical cardiac patients often experience sleep problems showing a reciprocal interaction with physical activity. As sleep and physical activity show day-to-day variations, their daily relationships need to be assessed. However, no studies have examined daily sleep-physical activity relationships in postsurgical cardiac patients. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to examine the effects of daily sleep factors on daily physical activity after cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: Shared decision-making plays an important role in ensuring value-based healthcare in cardiac surgery. However, the personal situations of patients in cardiac care have not been widely explored, and thus, little is known about the decision-making experiences of patients and their relatives before surgery. OBJECTIVE: To explore the perceptions of patients indicated for cardiac surgery and their relatives during the decision-making process, as well as their experiences of a conversation aimed at achieving shared decision-making in the treatment trajectory...

BACKGROUND: How socio-demographic characteristics and comorbidities affect bacterial community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) prognosis during/after hospitalization is important in disease management. OBJECTIVES: To identify predictors of medical intensive care unit (MICU) admission, length of hospital stay (LOS), in-hospital mortality, and bacterial CAP readmission in patients hospitalized with bacterial CAP. METHODS: ICD-9/10 codes were used to query electronic medical records to identify a cohort of patients hospitalized for bacterial CAP at a tertiary hospital in Southeastern US between 01/01/2013-12/31/2019...

BACKGROUND: In addition to conventional pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) programs for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the use of virtual reality-based therapy (VRBT) has been proposed as an effective complementary tool to be included in PR programs for COPD. OBJECTIVES: To analyze the effectiveness of VRBT on functional capacity, pulmonary function, and functional mobility in patients with COPD. METHODS: A meta-analysis was carried out through a bibliographic search in PubMed (Medline), WOS, PEDro, CINAHL, CENTRAL, and Scopus since inception up to June 2023...

BACKGROUND: Everyday living with a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is complex, particularly for people with physical or cognitive impairments or limited social supports. There is a need for standardized pre-operative functional evaluations. OBJECTIVES: Our objectives were to describe a pre-operative occupational therapy (OT) evaluation for LVAD candidates, assess its feasibility in routine care, and characterize functional needs. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed electronic medical records of pre-operative OT consultations for LVAD candidates over four years (n = 209)...

Nonetheless, the precise cause-and-effect relationship remains uncertain. OBJECTIVES: In this investigation, we utilized a two-sample Mendelian randomization (TSMR) approach to probe the presence of a causal connection between gut microbiota and PAH. METHODS: Genome-wide association (GWAS) data for gut microbiota and PAH were sourced from MiBioGen and FinnGen research, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus type 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is known for its rapid progression to acute hypoxemic respiratory failure (AHRF). The increased use of oxygen therapy during the pandemic and the progression of AHRF have highlighted the need to promptly determine the need for orotracheal intubation (OTI). OBJETIVE: To determine the validity of quantitative measurement of oxygen debt (DEOx) according to arterial gases compared to the use of iROX in patients with high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy requirement, presenting with acute respiratory failure as a consequence of SARS-CoV-2 infection...

INTRODUCTION: For out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs), time is of the essence. While the relationship between EMS response time (ERT) and OHCA outcomes is well studied, a more comprehensive assessment of the effects of other intervention time is needed, which is essential to guide clinical practice. OBJECTIVES: Evaluating how a longer total pre-hospital time (TPT), ERT, advance life support response time (ART) and EMS cardiopulmonary resuscitation time (ECT) increase the mortality rates, unfavorable neurological outcomes, and severe complications at discharge of OHCAs...
