The Role of Cardioselective Beta Blockers in Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test and Echocardiography in COPD Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.348
Synopsis: 
Physicians are still reluctant to use β-blockers in COPD patients as it is a contraindication. Previous studies evaluating pulmonary function test showed that β-blockers could be used in patients with COPD. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of cardioselective β-blockers on cardiopulmonary capacity during exercise. A novel test, CPET, is used in our study.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of cardioselective β-blockers in echocardiography and cardiopulmonary exercise tests (CPET) in COPD patients.

Positional Atrial Sense Failure in a Ratedrop Pacemaker Causing Frequent Tachycardia Attacks

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.573

The Editor,

 Sir,

 Selected patients with Cardio-inhibitory reflex syncope may benefit from cardiac pacemakers; particularly rate-drop response algorithm may decline syncope episodes. But sometimes inappropriate rate-drop responses may present challenging diagnostic problems.

Does the Dıfferent Type of Pulmonary Hypertensıon Cause the Same Effect on Rıght Heart and Serum Asymmetrıcal Dımethylargınıne Levels ın Female Patıents?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.319
Synopsis: 
We aimed to evaluate if different type of PH cause the same effect on right heart functions and serum asymmetric dimethylarginine levels in female patients. In our study we found that PAH caused more impaired right heart functions than PVH.
