FDA approves new treatment for a type of Heart Failure

May 7, 2020

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)Silver Spring, MD – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Farxiga (dapagliflozin) oral tablets for adults with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for heart failure.

Heart failure occurs when the heart does not pump enough blood to support the body’s needs, and this type of heart failure happens when the heart’s main pumping chamber, the left ventricle, is weakened.

FDA approves drug for adults with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for heart failure.

Racial inequities uncovered in hospital admissions for Heart Failure

October 30, 2019

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – According to new research published in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation: Heart Failure, people who are Black or of Latin American descent with heart failure are less likely to be admitted to specialized cardiology units, a disparity that may help explain long-known racial differences in heart failure outcomes.

Heart failure patients not treated in a specialized cardiac care unit are more likely to be readmitted within one month of discharge. (Rupal O’Quinn, University of Pennsylvania)

American Heart Association reports Autopsies reveal how Meth hurts the Heart

September 13, 2019

American Heart AssociationBoston, MA – Use of the illegal stimulant methamphetamine causes build-up of tough protein fibers in heart muscle, which may help explain the development of enlarged hearts and heart failure in users, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association’s Basic Cardiovascular Sciences 2019 Scientific Sessions.

Methamphetamine, also known as meth, is an extremely addictive and commonly abused stimulant drug, with 1.6 million Americans reporting using the drug in 2017.

Autopsy samples reveal that methamphetamine use makes dangerous structural changes in heart muscle that increase the risk of heart attack, sudden cardiac death and heart failure. (American Heart Association)

Prolonged exposure to Low-Dose Radiation may increase the risk of Hypertension

June 2, 2019

Hypertension is a known cause of Heart Disease and Stroke

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – According to a study of workers at a nuclear plant in Russia published in the American Heart Association’s journal Hypertension, prolonged exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation increased the risk of hypertension

Uncontrolled hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, can to lead to heart attack, stroke, heart failure and other serious health problems.

This study is the first to associate an increased risk of hypertension to low doses of ionizing radiation among a large group of workers who were chronically exposed over many years. (American Heart Association)
