The computer-analysed 3 orthogonal lead system ("3-lead ECG") provides a rapid and consistent interpretation of the electrocardiogram. In 102 patients undergoing selective coronary arteriography, the ability of such a system to predict the presence of absence of coronary artery disease and the site of myocardial ischaemia was compared with that of the(More)
SUMMARY The normal human left ventricular response to large variations in preload was studied in 12 young men. M-mode echocardiograms were recorded at supine rest and compared with studies obtained during head-down tilt (HDT) at 50 and during progressive lower body negative pressure (LBNP) to-40 mm Hg. During HDT, end-diastolic volume (EDV) increased 23% (p(More)
In a district general hospital's coronary care unit (CCU) 197 patients with chest pain were admitted over a 6-month period and in 131 an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was confirmed. 67 (51%) were eligible for thrombolytic therapy, on criteria laid down for a trial of streptokinase. Criteria for thrombolysis were not fulfilled in 41 (31%) and 12 patients(More)
The haemodynamic effects of intravenous cyclizine, an antiemetic that is widely given with opioids in left ventricular failure and myocardial infarction, were studied in 11 patients with severe heart failure. Cyclizine significantly increased systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures, and right and left ventricular filling pressures, and negated the(More)
Ecological niche models (ENM) have been used with mixed success for predicting the geographic extent of non-native species to aid management and conservation. This approach is problematic for predicting invasions of patchily-distributed species (e.g., pond-breeding amphibians), whose occurrence is often determined by local habitat conditions. Here, we(More)
The influence of beta blockade on the ability of ST depression, during pre-discharge exercise testing, to predict coronary anatomy and subsequent complications was studied in 300 consecutive post-infarct patients, 125 of whom underwent cardiac catheterisation. At the time of exercise 62 patients were taking a beta blocker. The exercise test had a higher(More)
?The cardiovascular effects of the cardioselective beta, agonist prenalterol have been studied in nine patients with severe chronic congestive cardiac failure and in six patients with left ventricular dysfunction resulting from previous myocardial infarction. In the patients with cardiac failure intravenous prenalterol in a dosage of 1.5 microgram/kg(More)
