Study offers clues to 'Broken Heart Syndrome'

...atients. Twenty percent of patients were unable to breathe on their own and needed a respirator. In all patients, cardiac catheterization showed characteristic abnormalities in the motion of the heart. One patient died of acute heart failure. The good news is that most patients who survived the first 48 ...

MIT's ocean model captures diversity of underwater forests

Freeze! Scientists film proteins at work by freezing them at different states

...abolism. In humans, about 2% of the oxygen used to breathe is transformed into this toxic “superoxide radical?molecule, instead of water. This production is increased in people affected by neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer. A high amount of these molecules worsen these illnesses, so scientists are...

"In 2005 we invented the molecular walker, which moves in a straight line rather than hopping around in all directions as a normal molecule would do. Now it can c...

Salamanders suffer delayed effects of common herbicide

... their gills and develop lungs that enable them to breathe in air. Scientists then tracked their survival to near reproductive age. Results from the study, which lasted about 500 days, indicated that the two highest concentrations increased salamander mortality during exposure. However, this mortality b...

Breathing easy: When it comes to oxygen, a bug's life is full of it

...inaudible pants. They are not, because they do not breathe through noses or mouths. Instead, insects draw in oxygen through holes in their bodies known as spiracles and pump the oxygen through a system of increasingly tiny tubes (tracheae) that deliver oxygen directly to tissues and muscles. Insects typicall...

Steep oxygen decline halted first land colonization by Earth's sea creatures

... used by birds. They found that at sea level birds breathe 30 percent more efficiently than mammals and at 5,000 feet in elevation birds are 200 percent more efficient. Ward pictures a world in which dinosaurs were able to adapt to low atmospheric oxygen content relatively easily, and when oxygen levels r...

Researchers win money to develop breath test to detect breast cancer

...ct the metabolites. Theoretically, a woman could breathe into an over-the-counter device and cancer-indicating metabolites would be attracted into the nanopockets, thus causing the pored surface to fill and become dense. Then, an electrical charge would be applied so that the straight particles would bend,...

Oceans turning to acid from rise in CO2

... global warming. Marine plants soak up CO2 as they breathe it in and convert it to food during photosynthesis. Organisms also use it to make their skeletons and shells, which eventually form sediments. With the explosion of fossil-fuel burning over the past 200 years, it has been estimated that more than a t...

Discovery of an American salamander where it shouldn't be: Korea

Because these nocturnal animals live, breed and lay their eggs on land, they typically are found in areas with abundant rainfall, such as the eastern United States. They are most abundant in North and South America, with one lone ...
