Dear sir/madam, I am searching the topic 'cardiac embarrassment',which is connected to something like mediastinal shifting after a pulmonary surgery.I have searched many sites but could not get the topic in detail & in a better manner.It seems the topic is not an highlighted one,but my curiosity for this search topic is increasing.I would like you to include this topic on your site,as your site shows detailed and thorough information about any topic. Kindly do look into this matter.Looking forward to see this topic on your site. Thanking you in anticipation. Yours truly, site member.
Hi Josh! Great work editing this article, especially since its probably one of the more time-intensive topics to look into.
-You did a great job avoiding jargon in the 'causes' section and using links to additional Wikipedia articles for further information on the arrhythmias discussed.
-It might be helpful to include a bulleted list of the causes of cardiac arrest before going on to explain each one
-Under CAD, the article mentions LVH as a leading cause of SCD. While this is probably true, you could move it down to the next section which discusses structural heart disease not related to CAD.
-Since you included a link to the article on Long QT syndrome, you could consider removing the description of long QT included under arrhythmias to streamline the article some.
-There are a few instances where the article seems to use primary articles (under the ICD section). May want to find higher level evidence for this information. Instead of referencing trials (ie MADIT-II trial) that can't be searched in Wikipedia, you could try summarizing some of the criteria that would qualify a patient for ICDs.
-The section under Targeted Temp Management also seems to cite a few primary articles. This area could use some summarizing instead of presenting so many statistics. Same with the "other" section
-The Epidemiology section seems out of place. You might want to move it earlier in the article.
-This article is pretty comprehensive. Overall, great job! If you wanted to pick one section to focus on, I would probably choose to clean up the 'management' section.
