Let me introduce the 6th issue of our journal to you. Its cover presents three milestones in science to mark the list of the greatest discoveries: DNA structure, model of atom, and … the specific blood flow regime in a human body. The latter discovery is demonstrated for the first time, but we hope it will hold a firm place in the list considering its contribution to understanding of importance of cardiometry as a new fundamental science.
It would be of interest to our reader to learn more about the latest results from research of biophysical processes related to occlusive blood flow when non-invasively measuring arterial pressure. The research led to a new officially registered scientific discovery that laid the groundwork for development of the cardiac cycle phase analysis theory. The respective theoretical and practical concepts facilitating pioneering effective investigations in cardiometry were originated from that research.
Cardiometry reveals a number of problems in cardiology which could not be solved before. Their solutions have become possible only due to a high scientific potential of cardiometry.
Original devices developed on the basis of cardiometry for cardiac signal recording and analysis are an absolutely new class of medical instrumentation supported by the latest advancements in metrology, and they make it possible to detect any responses of the cardiovascular system performance to external and internal effects.
In this issue you will find a unique story presenting Memoirs written by Prof. Roman M. Baevsky about Y.A. Gagarin, the first cosmonaut in the history of mankind. In fact, the 12th of April 1961 is the birthday of telemetry and space telemedicine, the new era of medicine. It is very exciting to read about the emotions of the man who was among the pioneers and developers of space cardiology diagnostics and who was responsible for remote medical control of the first cosmonaut during his space mission. Besides, two scientific articles by Baevsky are published by us herein.
In April this year, the 16th Congress of the Russian Society of Holter Monitoring and Noninvasive Electrophysiology (ROHMINE) took place in Russia. Within its framework, the 8th All-Russian Congress CLINICAL ELECTROCARDIOLOGY was traditionally held. It should be noted that this ROHMINE Congress has initiated a process of the 1st All-Russian Conference of Pediatric Cardiologists of FMBA of Russia. Very interesting reports were presented by the “Sports cardiology” section.
In this connection, the paper “Anatomy and physiology of the sinoatrial node: modern concepts” by Prof. N.A. Tarsky should be highlighted. To our mind, it is an original research report which proves for the first time our suggestion that no links between the SA and AV nodes exist. In fact, it is the second law of cardiometry. However, Prof. Tarsky did not state that the SA node is a baroreceptor, but he has given excellent proof that there are no links between the said nodes.
Time shows that the potential of our research school being involved in development of cardiometry as a new scientific field is the most advanced in the world. It is not just simple words. Our journal deals with new developments in the cardiovascular system research. We hope they will attract attention of not only academicians, but also medical practitioners.
