Hyperthyroidism in pregnancy is associated with increased foetal and maternal morbidity. Hyperthyroidism occurs in 0.2–0.6% of pregnancies. This suggests that based on 23,000 deliveries in the 3 major Dublin maternity hospitals that 40–60 cases per year would be expected to be at risk of a poor outcome from hyperthyroidism.To clarify those factors associated with poor outcome in hyperthyroidism in pregnancy we undertook an audit of 53 cases of ...

Power spectral analysis (PSA) of heart rate variability (HRV) in the detection of cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in subjects with diabetes mellitus

Khamis Amjed , Rizvi SR , Hoashi Shu , Byrne Marie , Firth RG , Kinsley Brendan

Standard Autonomic Function tests AFT may not detect subclinical CAN. Modalities exist (Frequency Domain) using PSA of HRV, which may detect subclinical CAN.We performed standard AFTs (HR response to deep breathing, Valsalva, Tilt at 1 min and 6 min) and PSA of HRV on these tests in 46 subjects (29 DM and 17 Controls) matched for age and sex. We sought to establish if those DM subjects considered normal by AFT would exhibit abnormalities in PSA of HRV. W...
