Deep learning model provides rapid detection of stroke-causing blockages

A sophisticated type of artificial intelligence (AI) called deep learning can help rapidly detect blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the head, potentially speeding the onset of life-saving treatment, according to a study published in Radiology. Large vessel occlusions are blockages in the arteries that supply oxygenated blood to the brain. These occlusions

Systolic BP increases at rapid rate above 120 to 125 mm hg

(HealthDay)—After systolic blood pressure (BP) reaches 120 to 125 mm Hg, it increases at a relatively rapid rate toward overt hypertension, according to a study published online March 21 in JAMA Cardiology. Teemu J. Niiranen, M.D., from Boston University, and colleagues used data from the Framingham Original Cohort (1,252 participants; 63.1 percent women) to identify
