A higher d-dimer threshold safely rules-out pulmonary embolism in very elderly emergency department patients.
Thromb. Res.

Hide Abstract
D-dimer is commonly used in the workup of suspected Pulmonary Embolism (PE), but its specificity decreases with age. We evaluated whether using a higher cutoff value for D-dimer could increase the test specificity without reducing its sensitivity for ruling-out PE in elderly and very elderly patients presenting to the Emergency Department (ED).

Hide Abstract
SunTech 247 is an oscillometric blood pressure (BP) monitor manufactured by SunTech Medical Inc., Morrisville, North Carolina, USA. The aims of this study were (i) to determine its accuracy using the 1993 modified British Hypertension Society (BHS) protocol, the 2002 International Protocol (IP) and the 2002/2003 Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) standards, (ii) to compare the performance of BHS protocol and IP.

Long-term risk of sustained hypertension in white-coat or masked hypertension.

Hide Abstract
It is debated whether white-coat (WCHT) and masked hypertension (MHT) are at greater risk of developing a sustained hypertensive state (SHT). In 1412 subjects of the Pressioni Arteriose Monitorate e Loro Associazioni Study, we measured office blood pressure (BP), 24-hour ambulatory BP, and home BP. The condition of WCHT was identified as office BP >140/90 mm Hg and 24-hour BP mean <125/79 mm Hg or home BP <132/82 mm Hg. Corresponding values for MHT diagnosis were office BP <140/90 mm Hg, 24-hour BP > or =125/79 mm Hg, and home BP >or =132/82 mm Hg. SHT was identified when both office and 24-hour BP means or home BP were over threshold values and normotension was under the threshold value. Subjects were reassessed 10 years later to evaluate the BP status of the various conditions defined previously. At the first examination, 758 (54.1%), 225 (16.1%), 124 (8.9%), and 293 (20.9%) subjects were normotensive, WCHT, MHT, and SHT subjects, respectively. At the second examination, 136 normotensives (18.2%), 95 WCHT (42.6%), and 56 MHT (47.1%) subjects became SHT. As compared with normotensives, adjusting for age and sex, the risk of becoming SHT was significantly higher for WCHT and MHT subjects (odds ratio: 2.51 and 1.78, respectively; P<0.0001). Similar results were obtained when the definition of the various conditions was based on home BP. Independent contributors of worsening of hypertension status were not only baseline BP, but also, although to a lesser extent, metabolic variables and age. Subjects with WCHT and MHT are at increased risk of developing SHT. This may contribute to their prognosis that appears to be worse as compared with that of normotensive subjects.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
