This paper details the implementation and operational performance of a minimum-power 2.45-GHz pulse receiver and a companion on-off keyed transmitter for use in a semi-active, duplex RF biomedical transponder. A 50-ohm microstrip stub-matched zero-bias diode detector forms the heart of a body-worn receiver that has a (CMOS baseband amplifier consuming 20(More)
Free radical production may cause myocardial damage during reperfusion of ischaemic myocardial tissue; when free radicals interact with polyunsaturated fatty acids or their esters, lipid peroxides are produced. A product of lipid peroxidation, malondialdehyde, was measured in 10 subjects with stable angina who underwent angioplasty of a proximal high-grade(More)
Department in Antrim experienced a large number of 7-day readmissions, i.e., the number of patients who were discharged from the department and then readmitted from A&E within 7 days of their discharge. Cardiology had the second highest figures within the hospital with 144 of 2780 patients. This number was also high in comparison with national rates, with(More)
UNLABELLED The risk of arterial embolism is well recognised following Direct Current Cardioversion (DCC) for atrial fibrillation although the use of prophylactic anticoagulation remains controversial. AIM To determine the risk of arterial embolism post-cardioversion and which factors predict successful cardioversion and maintenance of sinus rhythm. (More)
The mobile coronary care unit based at Coleraine Hospital was called to 155 patients in the community during a six-monthly period, 74 of whom had sustained a myocardial infarction. Over the same period, 25 of 49 patients admitted via the ordinary ambulance with suspected ischaemic heart disease had sustained a myocardial infarction and received medical care(More)
