Although coffee is a widely used, pharmacologically active beverage, its impact on the cardiovascular system is controversial. To explore the effect of acute caffeine ingestion on brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD) in subjects without coronary artery disease (CAD; controls) and patients with CAD, we prospectively assessed brachial artery FMD in 40(More)
Weak electromagnetic fields (WEF) enhance Ca2+ entry into cells via voltage-gated Ca2+ channels and affect various aspects of metabolism, structure, and function. However, little information is available on the effect of WEF on skeletal muscle, which depends primarily on intracellular Ca2+ stores for function and metabolism. Here, we examine the effects of(More)
Heart exposure to 16Hz magnetic fields (MFs) was shown to be cardio-protective for diseased hearts; still, the mechanism of this effect is unknown. We hypothesize that a possible one mechanism is an increased trans-membrane KATP channel open probability due to modulation of the degree of dissociation between K+ ions, having a resonance frequency of 16Hz,(More)
The reduction in heart rate (HR) during the first min of recovery immediately after a maximal exercise stress test (GXT) has recently been found to be a powerful and independent predictor of mortality. A modified Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) designed in our lab, is used to perform time-dependent spectral analysis during the non steady-state conditions(More)
