The task force also used consistent language and graphical descriptions of both the strength of a recommendation and the quality of evidence. In terms of the strength of a recommendation, strong recommendations use the phrase “we recommend” and the number 1, and conditional recommendations use the phrase “we suggest” and the number 2.

149. Mitochondrial Function, Biology, and Role in Disease (Full text)

The incessant energy requirements of the heart are sustained by the consumption of a mass of ATP daily that surpasses cardiac weight itself by approximately 5 to 10 fold. This perpetual demand for energy reflects the continuous contractile functioning of the heart to sustain systemic circulation and nutrient supply. This high-energy flux translates into the cardiomyocyte having a mitochondrial volume between 23% and 32% of myocellular volume. Interestingly, cardiac mitochondrial density increases from human (...) pathology is not clear cut. In this section, we give a brief overview of metabolism and perturbations and their consequences on myocardial function. ETC Biology: Energetics and ROS The final common pathway for oxidative metabolism, which generates the bulk of cardiac ATP, is the sequential passage of electrons from high (NADH or FADH 2 ) to low (molecular oxygen) redox potentials down the ETC (complexes I through IV). This stepwise electron transfer results in the active pumping of hydrogen ions out

Does This Patient Have Acute Mountain Sickness?: The Rational Clinical Examination Systematic Review. Acute mountain sickness (AMS) affects more than 25% of individuals ascending to 3500 m (11 500 ft) and more than 50% of those above 6000 m (19 700 ft). AMS may progress from nonspecific symptoms to life-threatening high-altitude cerebral edema in less than 1% of patients. It is not clear how to best diagnose AMS.To systematically review studies assessing the accuracy of AMS diagnostic (...) at altitude, Acute Mountain Sickness-Cerebral, and clinical functional score perform similarly to the Lake Louise Questionnaire Score using a score of 5 or greater as a reference standard.
