Abstract

The recommended treatment for severe hypothermia with circulatory collapse is re-warming using cardiopulmonary by-pass. This may require transporting a patient to hospital with on-going cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Manual CPR during patient transport may result in sub-optimal ch...read more

Fluid Dynamics: Engineering Devices

Physiological fluid dynamics can assist in understanding the pathological mechanisms. Understanding of cardiovascular diseases, hemodynamics and the circulatory system can assist in designing engineering devices as potential therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research on fluid dynamics and engineering devices.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
