Heart failure is a condition in which the heart is not strong enough to pump as much oxygenated blood as the body needs. As the body gets less oxygen, the classic symptoms of heart failure begin to show: shortness of breath, fatigue, rapid heartbeat, swelling in the legs, and fluid retention.

But the physiological symptoms are just part of the problem of heart failure. Psychologically, heart failure is associated with depression, anxiety, stress, all of which cause even more damage to the heart.

In addition, psychological conditions make people less able to take care of themselves; people suffering from depression or anxiety are less capable of maintaining therapeutic life changes, such as healthy diet and exercise, which are crucial to managing heart failure.

For that reason, an important component of heart failure treatment is treating these negative emotions. Cardiac rehabilitation focuses not only on the physical aspects of the disease, but also includes group or individual counseling to manage the anxious fear of the future, sense of isolation, and stress that accompany heart failure.

Cardiac rehab is a multi-faceted treatment program that helps people manage a variety of cardiovascular health conditions. It consists of safe, progressive exercise training, tailored to each individual’s ability; education about therapeutic life changes, such as smoking cessation and maintaining (and even enjoying!) a heart-healthy diet; and stress management. Cardiac rehab can be provided in both outpatient and inpatient facilities.

According to both the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, cardiac rehab is an vital component of recovery from heart disease or heart surgery. Studies consistently show that cardiac rehab reduces the risk of future heart problems in people with a variety of heart conditions, as well as lowering overall risk of death from heart disease.

Would I Benefit from Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac rehab benefits those who have suffered from:

Angina

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

Heart attack (also known as a myocardial infarction)

Heart failure

Heart procedures, such as:

   Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts (CABG)

   Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

   Pacemaker Implantation
   Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (also known as PCI or angioplasty)

   Stent Placement

   Valve Replacement

Does Insurance Cover Cardiac Rehab?

Most insurers, including Medicare, cover the conditions listed above, though they might request a referral from your doctor. In the case of heart failure, cardiac rehab coverage is generally dependent on the extent to which the heart is incapable of pumping blood.

When Should I Start Cardiac Rehab?

Depending on your medical condition, cardiac rehab may start while you are still in the hospital. In other cases, it may begin a week or more after you are discharges.

How Long is Does Cardiac Rehab Take?

Because your program is tailored to your specific needs, the length of cardiac rehab will vary. However, most programs last no longer than three months. Depending on your condition, you may be able to take part in an intensive program that lasts only one or two weeks, or you may benefit from a program that extends beyond three months.

According to statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 400 million people worldwide suffer from hearing loss. When an individual's hearing loss is not too severe and damage to the cochlea is not too extensive, electronic devices such as hearing aids can help them manage their hearing deficiency. However, after a certain point, no electronic device is capable of helping an individual manage their hearing loss.

More fundamentally, it is essential to note that managing hearing loss by means of an electronic device or implant is in no way connected with reversing hearing loss. Until recently, the concept of reversing hearing loss in humans would have been considered science-fiction.

It is a fascinating fact that mammals are the only vertebrates that are unable to regenerate damaged cochlea cells. The cochlea contains the hair-like cells that line the inner ear. These hair-like cells pick up vibrations from the eardrum and transform them into electronic signals that can be processed by the brain. Other vertebrates, for example fish and birds, can regenerate the sensory hair-like cells contained in cochlea.

Aging and exposure to loud noises are the main causes of damage to the cochlea. When the sensory hair cells contained in the cochlea are destroyed, a degree of irreversible hearing loss will occur. And when a critical amount is destroyed, severe or total hearing loss will result. At present, this loss is irreversible.

In 2012, research led by Dr. Patricia White identified the group of receptors essential for the regeneration process of sensory hair cells in fish and birds. These receptors are known as epidermal growth factor cells (EGF).

Recently, a group of researchers from the University of Rochester and the Massachusetts Ear and Eye Infirmary began a series of experiments to duplicate this process in mice. This groundbreaking research, also led by Dr. White, was published in their European Journal of Neuroscience.

The researchers were able to identify a specific receptor, known as ERBB2, which when stimulated appropriately caused sensory hair-like cells to regrow in the cochlea. Via a series of experiments, the team was able to find a successful method to stimulate the ERBB2 receptors, resulting in stem cells transforming into the sensory hair cells required for hearing.

Regarding this process, Dr. White stated: "You have to regenerate sensory hair cells and these cells have to function properly and connect with the necessary network of neurons. This research demonstrates a signaling pathway that can be activated by different methods and could represent a new approach to cochlea regeneration and, ultimately, restoration of hearing."

Although this research is still at an early stage, it demonstrates the first time that sensory hair cells were regenerated in mammals. It is hoped that further research will soon lead to human trials, and ultimately to a revolution for the treatment of hearing loss.
