    Sudden Death

    My grandfather, aged 71, passed away last Friday. At around 2:30 in the afternoon, we found him lying on the bathroom floor. There was poop on the toilet bowl so he actually still did his bathroom business. We do not know how long he has been there for. But earlier in the morning, he was still fine and ate breakfast. Even though many of us assumed he was already dead, he was rushed in the hospital as they revived him for the next 30 minutes... however, he was declared as “Death on Arrival” and there....

    Could panic disorder lead to heart failure?

    I've been feeling this strange thing in my chest, mostly on the left area. A few days ago I had my first panic attack, called the ambulance and went to the hospitals. All the tests showed my heart was okay and this was a panic attack. After I went to the hospital, I had 4 more panic attacks in a row in 1 hour. They were scary! I was not convinced though, because how would panic disorder create this strange feeling in my heart? I've done some research and found out that A LOT of people with....

    Alternative potential hypertensive treatment

    Hi, I am a student at Durham University studying Biology. I am currently doing a module called Biological Enterprise, where I am a part of a team that is mimicking a ‘start-up’ business producing a new product. Our product is going to help hypertensive patients by releasing high blood pressure medication continuously at a slow rate so there is no need for daily medication. We would love to know if people would be interested in a product that would replace the need for daily medication and unnecessary....

My doctor does not know why I’m getting low bp and high heart....

    Radial pulse

    Hello , I am trying to figure out why my radial pulse is always in the 40's but my ekg's always show 70-80's or within normal range. My cardiologist just says don't worry about pulse readings that it basically just isn't registering the bigeminy or trigeminy beat. Does this sound right? It always freaks me out when I take my pulse on either wrist or neck and I get a 40's reading. I have been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy due to alchohol. I have thousands of pvc's a day....
