Use of Tranexamic Acid Prevents Intubation in ACE Inhibitor- Induced Angioedema

Ramzan Judge, Stephanie Kolaski and Farhan Qadeer

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 11, 2021

ACE-I, a common antihypertensive medication, regulates blood pressure by inhibiting angiotensinconverting enzyme (ACE). This inhibition prevents the formation of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, a peptide hormone that causes vasoconstriction. ACE is also involved in the degradation of bradykinin, a potent mediator of vasodilation. When ACE is inhibited, the arteriolar smooth muscle relaxes and increases blood flow, leading to increased vasodilation of blood vessels, vascular permeability, and ...

Correlation between Self-Reported Daily Activity and Submaximal Walk Test in the Assessment of Functional Capacity among Patients with Hypertension

Tolulope O Olatunbosun, MSc PT, Taofeek O Awotidebe, PT, PhD, Rufus A Adedoyin, PT, PhD, Olufesola M Fasakin, RN, MSc, Suraj A Ogunyemi, MBChB, FWACP, Abayomi A Olawoye, PT, DPT and Adekola J Odunlade, MSc, PT

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 13, 2021

Time constraint on the part of clinicians or musculoskeletal comorbidities in the lower limbs in some patients with hypertension may sometimes prevent submaximal walk test. Hence, self-reported activity thus becomes an alternative method for assessing quick functional capacity (FC). This study assessed FC using a self-reported daily activity tool; Duke Activity Status Index (DASI) and correlated its value with 6-Minute Treadmill Walk (6-MTW) among patients with hypertension. This cross-sectional...
