Mortality rates are higher in U.S. counties where eviction rates are also elevated, and this trend is strongest in areas with higher proportions of Black residents and women, UT Southwestern researchers found.

New Data Shows 85% Reduction in One-Year Mortality for Medicare Heart Failure Patients With BVA-Guided Care
New data validate the benefits of the BVA-100 blood volume measurement test for Medicare heart failure patients. Data were presented at the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) 2022 – which brought together the world’s leading experts in heart failure.
When Catastrophe Strikes, ‘Think Aorta’
Vascular and cardiac surgeons in the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai know all too well the danger that looms when a patient experiences a tear in their heart’s main artery, called an aortic dissection. The condition, however, is often mistaken by patients—and even some physicians and nurses—for a heart attack, which can delay diagnosis and subsequent lifesaving surgery.
Second COVID-19 Wave in Europe Less Lethal Than First Wave
As Europe experienced its enormous second wave of the COVID-19 disease, researchers noticed the mortality rate was much lower than during the first wave. This inspired some to study and quantify the mortality rate on a country-by-country basis to determine how much the rate decreased. In Chaos, they introduce methods to study the progression of COVID-19 cases to deaths during the pandemic’s different waves; their methods involve applied mathematics, specifically nonlinear dynamics, and time series analysis.
