Clinical Influence of Nonadherence With Prophylactic #Aspirin in Preventing #Preeclampsia in High-Risk Pregnancies

..Women with inadequate adherence had higher incidence of early-onset preeclampsia (17% versus 2%; odds ratio [OR], 1.9 [95% CI, 1.1–8.7]; P=0.04), late-onset preeclampsia (41% versus 5%; OR, 4.2 [95% CI, 1.4–19.8]; P=0.04), intrauterine growth restriction (29% versus 5%; OR, 5.8; [95% CI, 1.2–8.3]; P=0.001), preterm delivery (27% versus 10%; OR, 5.2 [95% CI, 1.5–8.7]; P=0.008), and higher likelihood of increase in antihypertensives antenatally (60% versus … Continue reading Clinical Influence of Nonadherence With Prophylactic #Aspirin in Preventing #Preeclampsia in High-Risk Pregnancies

Changes in atrial #fibrillation admissions following #daylight saving time transitions

Daylight saving time (DST) imposes a twice-yearly hour shift. The transitions to and from DST are associated with decreases in sleep quality and environmental hazards. Detrimental health effects include increased incidence of acute myocardial infarction (MI) following the springtime transition and increased ischemic stroke following both DST transitions. Conditions effecting sleep are known to provoke atrial fibrillation (AF), however the effect of DST transitions on … Continue reading Changes in atrial #fibrillation admissions following #daylight saving time transitions
