Patient Care

Monitoring technology helps providers assess patients at a distance

BodyGuardian enables continuous or intermittent physiological monitoring and detection of abnormalities arising from a range of medical conditions before they lead to clinically significant concerns. It does not require surgical implantation of sensors and provides an alternative to in-hospital monitoring.

The latest from Mayo Clinic on theheart.org

Mayo Clinic joins forces with theheart.org to provide a unique perspective on patient care, clinical trials, news and events in cardiology via video and podcasts.

Research

TACT trial studies safety and efficacy of EDTA chelation therapy
A 68 percent increase in use led researchers to evaluate the efficacy of disodium EDTA chelation in the treatment CAD. While not conclusive, the results signal possible benefit for patients with diabetes and prior anterior MI.

Genetic research and high-precision microscopy may prevent hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
Researchers evaluate myosin and actin genes from children with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to determine the molecular events that lead to the disease's symptoms. In nearly half of all cases, the genetic problems that occur are a result of spontaneous mutation.
