By Phil Plait August 12, Over the course of three more years, we did it five more times. Despite the return of hundreds of kilos of rocks, thousands of pictures, and independent verification and authentication from dozens of countries some of which were and still are our enemiessome people stubbornly refuse to accept the fact that the Apollo Moon landings were real.
Unsurprisingly, they found that all of these did, indeed, serve as predictors of a higher hazard of cardiac death. One surprise predictor of the likelihood of cardiac death was "Receiving a potent diuretic".
However, the rationale behind prescribing potent diuretics was not explored and some dogs without CHF might have inappropriately received diuretics. Sometimes it is frustrating to try to objectively summarize studies by RVC cardiology researchers because they tend to either overlook or intentionally hide the obvious and refuse to provide breed-specific data about cavalier King Charles spaniels.
This is another one of those times. Boswood, studied the effect of pre-heart failure administration of pimobendan on dogs, Boswood bother to provide any breed-specific data or findings about cavaliers.
When we asked him to do so, his response was, in short, "No". Once again, here Dr. Boswood fails to provide data singling out the cavalier -- data he surely has -- even though there were six times more cavaliers in this study than any other breed. Not only that, but three of the seven organizations which assisted RVC in recruiting dogs were cavalier groups, the Cavalier Campaign, Cavalier Matters, and the Companion Cavalier club.
Surely their members expected some helpful information about their breed in the reported results. When you combine CKCSs with all other breeds in a study of this nature, you end up with a mess of unhelpful information for cavalier owners.
Italian researchers find serum iron decreases in MVD-affected dogs in heart failure stages. Brambilla studied the case records of 54 dogs, measuring their serum iron concentration SIC and iron-capacity factors.
They did not find any significant differences in iron values between Stage B and Stage C dogs. Thai study shows that moderate regular exercise can improve physical capacity in MVD-affected dogs in Stage B1.
In an October articlea team of Thai veterinary researchers Saikaew Sutayatram [right], Chollada Buranakarl, Anusak Kijtawornrat, Kumpanart Soontornvipart, Pakit Boonpala, Prapawadee Pirintr tested six Beagles with Stage B1 mitral valve disease mitral regurgitation but no heart enlargementto determine the effects of "submaximal endurance training" by treadmill running and 6-minute walks, over a period of eight weeks.
It did not test dogs in Stage B2 heart enlarged or in Stage C in heart failure. The investigators report finding that the exercise: They concluded that, "supervised or moderate regular exercise that is within the individual physical capacity should be performed in subclinical MMVD dogs and dogs with low routine physical activity, in order to preserve or improve physical capacity and quality of life.
Visser devises new landmark x-ray measurement to diagnose enlargement of the left atrium in MVD-affected dogs. In an October articleUniv.
Johnson have introduced a new, highly accurate x-ray measurement of the left atrium LA to determine if MVD-affected dogs have LA enlargement. They call their measurement "vertebral left atrial size VLAS ". Technically, they describe the measurement as: For the purpose of this study, the carina was defined as the radiolucent circular or ovoid structure within the trachea that represented the bifurcation of the left and right mainstem bronchi.
Similar to the vertebral heart size method, a second line that was equal in length to the first was drawn beginning at the cranial edge of T4 and extending caudally just ventral and parallel to the vertebral canal Figure 1, below. The VLAS was defined as the length of the second line expressed in vertebral-body units to the nearest 0.Aug 12, · In July , Man first walked on the Moon.
Over the course of three more years, we did it five more times. Despite the return of hundreds of kilos . A reader writes: What is your take on a manager who schedules a get-together at her place on a Saturday?
My husband’s boss scheduled a dinner over at her place, and we hesitantly said yes for not wanting to give a bad impression. Virginia has been a university English instructor for over 20 years. She specializes in helping people write essays faster and easier. Describe a problem vividly.
Propose a solution. Argue that the solution is practical, feasible, cost-effective, and workable. Explain why it is better than other. September Ivabradine reportedly improves heart rate variability in MVD-affected dogs with enlargement.
In a September article, Thai veterinary researchers (Prapawadee Pirintr, Nakkawee Saengklub, Vudhiporn Limprasutr, Anusak Kijtawornrat [left]) conducted a long term (3 months) study of oral doses of ivabradine in four MVD-affected Beagles with heart enlargement (Stage B2).
