L’hypersensibilité à l’électricité (HE) est un syndrome essentiellement défini par le patient lui-même, lequel présente des plaintes qu’il attribue à l’usage ou à la proximité d’appareils ou d’équipements émettant des champs électriques (CE), magnétiques (CM) ou électromagnétiques (CEM). La plupart des recherches, scandinaves, indiquent des plaintes dermatologiques chez des travailleurs sur écran mais de plus en plus de personnes se plaignent d’un syndrome plus général de type neurasthénique qui s’étend à d’autres sources de rayonnements nonionisants, lignes à haute tension et systèmes de mobilophonie. Ce terme n’implique pas de relation démontrée entre l’exposition aux champs électromagnétiques et les symptômes rapportés, comme l’indiquent les études de provocation. L’origine de l’hypersensibilité à l’électricité serait davantage multifactorielle et invite à la prise en considération multidisciplinaire de facteurs environnementaux, biologiques, psychologiques et psychosociaux dans le diagnostic et le traitement de ce syndrome hétérogène. Le but de cet article est de donner un aperçu des connaissances actuelles et des hypothèses étiologiques destinées à mieux comprendre et mieux aider les personnes qui en souffrent. [less ▲]

Hypersensitivity to electricity has been reported many times in the literature. From another point of view, numerous measurements have been performed on perception level. Even if it appears that part of the population has a lower perception level of current, there is no clear link with the so called “hypersensitivity to electricity” which is more related to declared physiological disorders in part of the population (sleeping problem, headache ...). Such declared hypersensitivity is currently not yet related to any biological parameter. Our research team is currently trying to determine a relationship between hypersensitive declared people and the perception level when injecting current in the low frequency range 50-1000 Hz. We have performed current perception tests with individuals under different conditions (different wave shapes, frequencies, influence of external electric field, male and female...) using a particular protocol and our own designed system for current injection. This paper will present our test system design (current injector, wave shape converter, safety aspects) and our first results based on both sine wave (different frequencies) and wide band signal.

In this review, various applications of Near Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging (NIR-HSI) in agriculture and in the quality control of agro-food products are presented. NIR-HSI is an emerging technique that combines classical NIR spectroscopy and imaging techniques in order to simultaneously obtain spectral and spatial information from a field or a sample. The technique is non-destructive, non-polluting, fast and relatively inexpensive per analysis. Currently, its applications in agriculture range from vegetation mapping, crop disease, stress and yield detection to component identification in plants and impurity detection. There is growing interest in HSI for the safety and quality assessment of agro-food products. The applications have been classified from the level of satellite images to the macroscopic, if not, molecular level. [less ▲]

In response to high blood pressure, left ventricular hypertrophy develops. But in hypertension, the myocardial hypertrophied structure is abnormal. The prevalence of this hypertrophy is influenced by age, gender, weight, race, genetics and the severity of high blood pressure. By echocardiography, it has been possible to detect non invasively and more precisely this hypertrophy and its anatomical pattern which is not uniform. This cardiac response is influenced by hemodynamic but also by non hemodynamic factors, but the exact mechanisms are not yet well understood. The humoral and tropic factors particularly affect the cardiac remodeling. Left ventricular hypertrophy has been noted by itself to be an independent risk factor for sudden death, ventricular arrhythmias, myocardial ischemia, and heart failure. Very early hypertension, diastolic dysfunction is noted. The progression to systolic failure in moderate hypertension usually occurs over several decades. According to the worse prognosis of left ventricular hypertrophy, it has been suggested that the reversibility of this anatomical modification by antihypertensive treatment is beneficial. Preliminary data support this idea. [less ▲]

The kidney could be the cause of essential hypertension which can also cause renal disease. High blood pressure is also very common in chronic kidney disease, and is moreover a well-known risk factor for a faster progression of kidney failure. Hypertension and kidneys are thus closely linked. Hypertension must be aggressively treated in patients suffering from chronic kidney disease, with a blood pressure goal of less than 130/80 mmHg, even lower than 125/75 mmHg when proteinuria is over 1g/day, using optimal and effective antihypertensive drugs. Among them, the blockers of the renin-angiotensin axis offer nephroprotective but also cardioprotective properties beyond their effect on blood pressure. [less ▲]

Dans cette revue portant sur l'association diabète et hypertension artérielle, deux facteurs de risque pour le système cardiovasculaire, nous avons voulu insister sur la nécessité impérieuse de corriger toute élévation tensionnelle chez un sujet diabétique. Ce but doit cependaat tenir compte des effets métaboliques potentiellement néfastes des médicaments mis à notre disposition. Le choix thérapeutique doit être l'aboutissement d'une réflexion portant sur le type d'hypertension, et donc sur le mécanisme physiopathologique probable de l'élévation de pression artérielle, et sur les effets secondaires possibles des substances antihypertensives. Une règle de conduite générale est proposée, à adapter cependant à chaque situation. Quel que soit le médicament choisi, le traitement de cette association hypertension artérielle-diabète fait la part belle aux mesures diététiques et à l'hygiène de vie. [less ▲]

Prevalence of arterial hypertension is growing, in particular due to population ageing. Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Prevention is conceivable on a theoretical basis by reduction or, if possible, prevention of excess weight, diet modifications, increased physical activity among other means. To be efficient, prevention should include an early detection of patients at risk and a long term assessment of efficacy requiring many efforts from both patients and physicians. [less ▲]

Dans l'hypertension artérielle et la décompensation cardiaque, les inhibiteurs de l'enzyme de conversion constituent un outil thérapeutique important mais, parfois, au prix de certains effets secondaires (par exemple, la toux). De nouvelles perspectives de contrôle du système rénine angiotensine-aldostérone se profilent à l'horizon avec l'avènement des antagonistes des récepteurs de l'angiotensine Il. Le losartan est lepremier agent de cette famille, de nature non peptidique et actif par voie orale. Sa longue durée d'action permet une seule administration par jour. Cet agent bloque tous les effets connus de l'angiotensine II par une action au niveau des récepteurs appelés AT1. Au vu des premiers résultats publiés, il constitue un concurrent des inhibiteurs de l'enzyme de conversion dans l'hypertension et la décompensation cardiaque. [less ▲]
