The response of the cardiovascular system to acupuncture treatment is studied in the present paper.
The article aims at describing the basic principles of cardiometry – a fundamentally new scientific field which enables the accurate measurement of cardiovascular system parameters.
Description of rapid and slow ejection phases in the cardiac cycle.
This paper deals with a study of central hemodynamics in 363 pediatric patients with burn shock as compared with a reference healthy children group in order to establish clinical value of the hemodynamic parameters for burn shock diagnostics and therapy.
Capabilities of the cardiometric diagnostics based on the heart cycle phase analysis for identifying the primary cause of a disease are considered in this paper.
Up to the present, ECGs have been classified on the basis of the analysis of the ECG curve shape. But this made impossible to classify many ECG shapes. The most promising methods for the classification must evaluate each of the 10 cardiac cycle phases both by their functions and hemodynamic parameters. The aim hereof is to develop the new classification principles for all possible ECG shape variations.
The article aims at describing the theoretical principles of cardiometry as a fundamentally new scientific field which enables the accurate measurement of the cardiovascular system parameters.
The article considers the development of the periodic table of ECG phase changes which should reflect the variety of the ECG curves and can be used as reference system for diagnostics purposes.
The interrelation between hemodynamic changes, functions of the cardiovascular system and biochemical reactions in the cells of the heart muscle is investigated in the present paper.
The results of study of an artificial aortic valve by the heart cycle phase analysis are given in the paper. The main aim of the study is identifying the artificial aortic valve influence on cardiovascular system functions, the way and ranges of these functions change. The results of phase blood volume measurement and the numerical values that characterize the metabolic processes in heart muscles are given herein.
The paper reviews the existing methods for hemodynamic parameters measurement, namely the Fick method, the thermodilution technique and the Cardiocode technology. Comparative analysis of the above methods is presented. Strong and weak points in each method and their informative values are identified. Distinctive features of the Cardiocode method, as the only noninvasive one, are described.
Conventional methods for arterial pressure (AP) measurement are not capable of identifying it in each cardiac cycle. Besides, they ignore many significant factors. The paper reports on an innovative method based on cardiac cycle phase analysis for detecting systolic and diastolic AP changes in each cardiac cycle using synchronous digitally processed ECG and Rheo recordings. Considered is the phase mechanism of the natural diastolic pressure regulation. The diastolic AP changes referred to the physiological norm and aortic dilatation status are also assessed.
Attempts to create an artificial heart were highlighted by our journal one year ago. Now we can say that there is no break-through news in this field: no technological progress, no pioneering research and no spectacular advancements are reported.
The paper presents some interesting data and findings on the study of the performance of the cardiovascular system in long-living individuals aged over 90. In this case, highland area individuals of this class are compared with those in flatland areas.
