  • Case Study: Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

    An invasive approach including percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) improves clinical outcomes in clients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and in clients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTEACS) (Mehta et al., 2012). Periprocedural major bleeding is a strong autonomous predictor of early and late major adverse cardiovascular events and mortality (Bertrand, Larose, & Rodes-Labau, 2009; Verneugt, Steinhubl, & Hamon, 2011; as cited in Bernat et al., 2014). In an investigation of more than three million PCIs from the U. S. national registry, post-procedural bleeding events were linked with an increased chance of in-hospital mortality and an approximated 12.1% death rate related to bleeding complications…

Despite progress in stenting technique and stent itself, in some PCI cases, bifurcation lesions still remain challenging for cardiologists as they are more difficult to manage than simpler lesions. Clinically, stenting with bifurcation lesions is found to be associated with poorer post-PCI outcomes, which increases the need to evaluate side branches prior to PCI.…

  • Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (ED)

    During PCI, a deflated balloon or other device on a catheter is introduced from the inguinal femoral artery or radial artery until they reach the site of blockage in the heart under X-ray imaging guidance. At the blockage, the balloon is inflated to open the artery, allowing blood to flow. A stent is often placed at the site of blockage to permanently open the artery. (Kushner et al., 2009). The part of the heart muscle does not die immediately after occlusion of coronary artery. If blood supply…

  • Conflict Intervention

    nature, including religious tensions, non-violent political movements(e.g. imposition of a strong ideology: the war against communism in general for example, although it did contain elements of violence in certain regimes) as well as referendums.

  • Reading Fluency Problems Affect Reading Comprehension

    However, these studies primarily focus on the intervention working to improve reading fluency over a short period of time. Few studies have been conducted to determine the long-term effects of these interventions or the efficiency of using these interventions in a severely time constrained classroom setting. Can students and parents continue these interventions at home to further push these children to maximum improvements in reading? It is difficult to study the latter question because of the…
