BACKGROUND To define the arrhythmogenic effects of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in the intact heart, we carried out a detailed electrophysiological assessment in our previously validated feline aortic-banding model and then tested the effects of agents that blocked either the slow inward calcium or voltage-dependent potassium channel. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Using Donabedian's structure-process-outcomes (SPO) framework, this descriptive, exploratory study examined the structure of a telemonitoring program in a population of patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), the process of nurse-patient telephonic interactions, and patients' clinical outcomes. METHODS Secondary data analysis was conducted using(More)
Thirty children were randomly assigned to one of three groups prior to receiving dental treatment. One third of the children were assigned to a stressinoculation group, one third to an attention control group, and one third to a no-treatment group. The stress-inoculation group received instruction in relaxation and in positive self-talk. Observations by an(More)
Left ventricular hypertrophy increases vulnerability to ventricular fibrillation. To determine whether calcium channel blockade protects against ventricular arrhythmia in left ventricular hypertrophy, we studied the effects of gallopamil, a potent and specific calcium channel antagonist, in 37 cats undergoing aortic banding (group 1, n = 28) or a sham(More)
Background. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of increased morbidity and mortality globally. Clinical practice guidelines recommend that individuals with CVD are routinely instructed to engage in self-care including diet restrictions, medication adherence, and symptom monitoring. Objectives. To describe the nature of nurse-led CVD self-care(More)
