In November 2017, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association published new guidelines for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). This directive broadens the definition of hypertension and recommends that it should be treated more quickly. Read More
A sudden cardiac arrest among athletes is not very common and is rarely caused by a structural heart defect shown by research in The New England Journal of Medicine.
The researchers selected 74 patients between 12 and 45 years old from a Canadian database for cases of sudden cardiac arrest in the period 2009-2014. 16 of these occurred during a competitive sport, the rest during recreational sports. Read More
Fever is very common in young children. More than 60% of parents with children aged between 6 months and 5 years say their child has had one. It’s usually caused by a minor viral infection, such as a cough or cold, and can normally be treated at home. A high temperature can be quite worrying for parents and carers, but most children recover with no problems after a few days. The problem, however, is that treatments for fever are often poorly provided, including poorly ventilated rooms and over-covered children, parents often do not know the recommendations that help to lower the temperature of their child. A recent study indicates what can be the right ways of improvement. | Forest Medical Calibration Services Read More
In a continuation of our articles exploring the medical science of cardiac physiology, we shall be looking in-depth into Atherosclerosis. Associated with ageing demographics, plus increased signs of metabolic syndromes, Atherosclerosis is a dominant reason for mortality globally. Forest Medical, like all other companies working in the Medical Device Testing industry, is committed to ensuring that prognosis of specific health conditions (especially those linked to the heart) are diagnosed quickly and accurately. That is why we offer free technical support to ensure your medical diagnostic equipment is checked and maintained to the highest standards by a company that holds the ISO 9001:2008 award.
In this article, we shall be outlining how medical scientists from the Cardiovascular Research Center of Paris have successfully highlighted the mechanisms which underlie the development of Atherosclerotic Plaques. Notably, they exposed the shielding function of Autophagy, a process for cleansing and converting cellular components, within a cells lining of the arteries. These conclusions, printed in PNAS, contribute towards a better comprehension of the fundamental steps of development of these plaques and open the way to new medicines. Read More
As February is international Heart Month, led in the United Kingdom by The British Heart Foundation (BHF) who are encouraging everyone to make small changes towards a healthier lifestyle, we thought we would devote a number of new articles to explore medical science’s advances in understanding this vital organ. Forest Medical, like all other companies working in the Medical Device Testing industry, are committed to ensuring that prognosis of specific health conditions (especially those linked to the heart) are diagnosed quickly and accurately. That is why we offer free technical support to ensure your medical diagnostic equipment is checked and maintained to the highest standards by a company that holds the ISO 9001:2008 award.
In this article, we shall be outlining a fascinating study which links the heart and the brain, indicating an individuals state of consciousness. Read on for more information. Read More
Scientists have identified a mechanism to regulate the composition of the lactase gene, an enzyme which allows intestinal lactose digestion. The mechanism involves nuclear receptors known as “PPARg”; which are capable of being changed by naturally occurring molecules. So far, identifying the required particles found in one’s diet has proven to be tricky; however, many in the medical science community believe the team from the International Center for Research on Inflammation in the city of Lille, France, could be on the verge of a breakthrough. | Forest Medical – Blood Pressure Monitor Calibration Read More
The identification of a pair of unique genes associated with the diagnosis of Conn’s syndrome connects fifty percent of cases of hypertension (high blood pressure) for sufferers of the disease. | Forest Medical – Blood Pressure Monitor Calibration Read More
