Heart Failure and Skilled Nursing Facilities: The Importance of Getting the Facts

For many people diagnosed with heart failure — which almost invariably results in a hospital stay — the next stop is a skilled nursing facility. While their physician often will reassure them that it’s just for a short time until they can get back to their home, in reality, that stay is long (averaging 144 days). And often they find themselves back in the hospital and back to a nursing facility again.

Limiting Protein Reduces Post-Heart Attack Injury in Mice

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 735,000 Americans experience a heart attack each year. Opening a blocked coronary artery to restore blood flow to the heart prevents sudden cardiac death. However, doing so also triggers cardiac damage through oxidative stress and inflammation, which eventually can lead to heart failure. In a new study, researchers at the University of Missouri School of Medicine have identified a protein that can be targeted to decrease post-heart attack injury and prevent heart failure in a mouse model.
