Departamento de Cardiopneumologia - FM/MCP

O Departamento de Cardiopneumologia está ligado ao InCor (Instituto do Coração). Foi criado em 1986 unindo quatro disciplinas: Cardiologia, Pneumologia, Bases fisiológicas da prática médica e Cirurgia Cardiovascular. Sua concepção tem como foco estabelecer uma ponte entre o ensino de fisiologia, propedêutica e patologia clínica. Atualmente, as disciplinas regidas pelo Departamento são: áreas de genética e cardiologia molecular; cardiologia; cirurgia cardiovascular; cirurgia torácica e pneumologia.

  2. Parameter estimation of an artificial respiratory system under mechanical ventilation following a noisy regime

    RESEARCH ON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, v.31, n.4, p.343-351, 2015

    Abstract Introduction: This work concerns the assessment of a novel system for mechanical ventilation and a parameter estimation method in a bench test. The tested system was based on a commercial mechanical ventilator and a personal computer. A computational routine was developed do drive the me...

    REVISTA COLOMBIANA DE CARDIOLOGíA, v.29, n.6, p.663-675, 2022

    Abstract: Hyperlipidemia is a highly prevalent condition and contributes substantially to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), which is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in Colombia. The reduction of LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) decreases the risk of ASCVD and adverse cardio...

  4. Mortality over time among COVID-19 patients hospitalized during the first surge of the pandemic: A large cohort study

    PLOS ONE, v.17, n.9, article ID e0275212, 12p, 2022

    BackgroundCapacity strain negatively impacts patient outcome, and the effects of patient surge are a continuous threat during the COVID-19 pandemic. Evaluating changes in mortality over time enables evidence-based resource planning, thus improving patient outcome. Our aim was to describe baseline...

  5. Genome-wide association study for Chagas Cardiomyopathy identify a new risk locus on chromosome 18 associated with an immune-related protein and transcriptional signature

    PLOS NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASES, v.16, n.10, article ID e0010725, 20p, 2022

    Background Chronic Chagas Cardiomyopathy (CCC) usually develops between 10 and 20 years after the first parasitic infection and is one of the leading causes of end-stage heart failure in Latin America. Despite the great inter-individual variability in CCC susceptibility (only 30% of infected indi...

  6. Proteomics of high-density lipoprotein subfractions and subclinical atherosclerosis in type 1 diabetes mellitus: a case-control study

    DIABETOLOGY & METABOLIC SYNDROME, v.15, n.1, article ID 42, 14p, 2023

    BackgroundSubclinical atherosclerosis is frequently observed in type 1 diabetes (T1D) although the mechanisms and markers involved in the evolution to established cardiovascular disease are not well known. High-density lipoprotein cholesterol in T1D is normal or even high, and changes in its func...

  7. Cardiovascular disease onset in old people with severe hypercholesterolemia

    ATHEROSCLEROSIS, v.365, p.9-14, 2023

    Background and aims: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) variants are associated with higher atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk (ASCVD) even when compared with other forms of severe hypercholesterolemia, especially in young people. Lipid lowering therapies (LLT) may change hypercholestero...

  8. A novel wireless oxygen gas sensor based on silver film loaded on a patch antenna

    MATERIALS CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS, v.299, article ID 127513, 6p, 2023

    In this work, a patch antenna loaded with sensitive silver film was employed for the detection of oxygen gas at high concentrations. SEM micrographs demonstrate that the morphology of the Ag film presents an elevated degree of porosity, confirming that the film is suitable for adsorbing O2 gas mo...

  9. Muscle and visceral fat infiltration: A potential mechanism to explain the worsening of obstructive sleep apnea with age

    SLEEP MEDICINE, v.104, p.42-48, 2023

    Study objectives: Aging is a major risk factor for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and is associated with increased upper airway collapsibility, but the mechanisms are largely unknown. We hypothesized that the increase in OSA severity and upper airway collapsibility with age are partially mediated...
