It is widely believed pacemakers will be able to reap benefits from artificial intelligence (AI) by learning to identify patterns and make necessary adjustments. The adoption of AI in pacemakers can bring a paradigm shift in the way patients are treated by ensuring seamless patient-specific therapy.Feb 21, 2020
Angina pectoris occurs when your heart muscle (myocardium) does not get enough blood and oxygen. Not enough blood supply is called ischemia. Angina can be a symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD). This is when arteries that carry blood to your heart become narrowed and blocked.
The wall of the heart separates into the following layers: epicardium, myocardium, and endocardium. These three layers of the heart are embryologically equivalent to the three layers of blood vessels: tunica adventitia, tunica media, and tunica intima, respectively.May 10, 2021
sustained release INTRODUCTION. Pharmaceutical companies use a variety of abbreviations to denote short- and long-acting medications. Commonly used abbreviations include CR for “controlled release”, SR for “sustained release”, ER for “extended release”, and IR for “immediate release”.
A moderate amount of heart blockage is typically that in the 40-70% range, as seen in the diagram above where there is a 50% blockage at the beginning of the right coronary artery. Usually, heart blockage in the moderate range does not cause significant limitation to blood flow and so does not cause symptoms.
