    • Cardiorespiratory fitness and cognitive function in midlife: neuroprotection or neuroselection? 

      Belsky, Daniel W; Blumenthal, James Alan; Caspi, Avshalom; Israel, S; Moffitt, Terrie E; Poulton, R (Ann Neurol, 2015-04)
      OBJECTIVE: A study was undertaken to determine whether better cognitive functioning at midlife among more physically fit individuals reflects neuroprotection, by which fitness protects against age-related cognitive decline, ...
    • Care of the Patient with Chest Pain in the Observation Unit. 

      Limkakeng, Alexander; Borawski, Joseph; Graff, Louis G (Emergency medicine clinics of North America, 2017-08)
      Care of the patient presenting to an emergency department (ED) with chest pain remains a common yet challenging aspect of emergency medicine. Acute coronary syndrome presents in nonspecific fashion. The development and evolution ...
    • Congenital heart disease and pulmonary hypertension. 

      Gupta, V; Krasuski, Richard Andrew; Tonelli, AR (Heart Fail Clin, 2012-07)
      Many patients with congenital heart disease and systemic-to-pulmonary shunts develop pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), particularly if the cardiac defect is left unrepaired. A persistent increase in pulmonary blood ...
    • Magnitude of spinal muscle damage is not statistically associated with exercise-induced low back pain intensity. 

      Arpan, I; Bishop, Mark D; George, Steven Z; Horn, Maggie Elizabeth; Lott, DJ (Spine J, 2011-12)
      BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Findings on imaging of noncontractile anatomic abnormalities and the intensity of low back pain have weak associations because of false-positive rates among asymptomatic individuals. This association ...
    • Provoked exercise desaturation in patent foramen ovale and impact of percutaneous closure. 

      Devendra, Ganesh P; Krasuski, Richard Andrew; Rane, AA (JACC Cardiovasc Interv, 2012-04)
      OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to assess the prevalence of provoked exercise desaturation (PED) in patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) referred for cardiovascular evaluation and to evaluate the impact of PFO closure. ...
    • Swimming-Induced Pulmonary Edema: Pathophysiology and Risk Reduction With Sildenafil. 

      Cherry, Anne; Freiberger, John Jacob; Kernagis, DN; Martina, SD; Moon, Richard Edward; Natoli, Michael J; Otteni, CE; ... (11 authors) (Circulation, 2016-03-08)
      BACKGROUND: Swimming-induced pulmonary edema (SIPE) occurs during swimming or scuba diving, often in young individuals with no predisposing conditions, and its pathophysiology is poorly understood. This study tested the ...
