ESC relies on a function-based vs extensive scoring-based approach to assessment and management of neonatal abstinence syndrome.

“We have shown for the first time that rehospitalizations following heart attacks in women aged 55 and younger are accompanied by certain non-cardiac factors that appear more common in women than men and are associated with more adverse outcomes. The study reveals a need for paying greater attention to these noncardiac risk factors in younger women in order help design better clinical interventions and improve outcomes after discharge for a heart attack.”
