The mice used in this experiment were reported to have larger and more severe atherosclerosis wounds after a stroke or myocardial infarction. These results were observed to be as a result of increased monocyte production that was triggered by the stroke that affected the spleen action. This understanding of factor affecting atherosclerosis and can be used in using better management techniques (Dutta et al 2012). This is because the kind of intervention used on atherosclerosis patients with ischemic complication can affect the long term outcome. Care should thus be taken with patients with such problems to avoid further complications I find this article to be important because you find that most patients suffering from atherosclerosis also suffers from myocardial infarction. The interaction of the two makes it hard to treat one or the other. Understanding how myocardial infarction affects other diseases is important in developing better treatment methods. For instance, people suffering from atherosclerosis should not be subjected to a treatment that increases the possibility of getting a stroke or myocardial infarction. It gives a deeper understanding how the myocardial infarction may affect the body so that precautions can be taken. Article two Guidelines for Management of Acute Myocardial Infarction The article looks into the various strategies that have been put forward on the treatment of myocardial infarction. It starts by analyzing all the symptoms associated with the disease and how they affect the body. The author then systematically explains all the treatment options and their implication on the body. This is putting in consideration that although there may many treatment strategies, their effectiveness is tagged on their ability to give the nest end results and reduce the risk of the patient getting other infections. The article puts all these risks in the clear so that doctors can be able to decide which treatment option best suits their patient condition. The author highlights early risk stratification and rapid diagnosis as major factors influencing the success of treatment of acute myocardial infarction. In order to understand the extent of the progression of the disease, different strategies are used and this look for biochemical, pathological, clinical and electrocardiographic (ECG) characteristics (Banerjee & Kumar 2011). These risks should be analyzed quantitatively to get a greater picture of the disease progression. I think this article is important because it not only describes the different treatment options but it also gives a detailed account of the risks associated with these treatment options. The physician can use this method to determine which treatment option suits a patient in context of other disorders that the patient may have. The information presented here can be used by doctors to have the needed information that would increase the chance of having better outcomes. Article Three Plasma HDL cholesterol and risk of myocardial infarction: a mendelian randomisation study The article is about a study that seeks to know whether a high level of plasma HDL cholesterol decreases the risk of getting myocardial infarction. The study seeks to identify whether the association of low risk to myocardial infection with low plasma HDL cholesterol is cause. It takes a mendelian approach where genes are assorted independently during meiosis and their causal effects is not affected by the disease progr

The heart muscle needs a constant supply of oxygenated blood to keep it nourished. This blood is transported to the heart through the coronary artery. However, the coronary artery can become narrow and hinder the flow of blood to the heart. This is often caused by deposits of fatty matter, proteins and inflammatory cells on the coronary artery.
An imbalance in this predisposes the heart muscle to ischemia, which means reduced blood flow. The tissue death as a result of ischemia occurs because of two reasons, reduced oxygen supply and the decreased delivery of nutrients, both of which are brought in by the flow of blood though the heart muscle.
So he is unhappy regarding his transfer away from his home and rural hospital and wants him sent back there. He is unemployed, a smoker, and has a current history of heavy alcohol intake. Mr. Walker has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus in 2005.
The author states that the symptoms caused by heart disease result most commonly from myocardial ischemia, from disturbance of the contraction and/or relaxation of the myocardium, or from obstruction to blood flow. Ischemia is manifest most frequently as chest discomfort, while reduction of the pumping ability commonly leads to hypotension.
The picture is consistent with microcytic hypochromic anaemia. There is an associated inflammatory component of the disease suggested by leukocytosis. Since there is normal platelet count, one can freely rule out bone marrow inflammation.
2. In this setting, small-bowel involvement may lead to malabosrption.
Obesity, poor diet, and lack of exercise are precursors to this condition. Fortunately, these factors can be changed.
In order to diagnose myocardial infarction, a series of tests need to be conducted—giving the patient a work-up which may
An elevation of the ST segment reveals injury, serving as a first sign of heart attack on EGC. Since the ECG portrays the electrical performance of the heart, organs are improperly perfused when the heart becomes compromised (CGMH, 2015).
