A digital object identifier (DOI) can be used to cite and link to electronic documents. A DOI is guaranteed never to change, so you can use it to link permanently to electronic documents.

To find a document using a DOI

  1. Copy the DOI of the document you want to open.
    The correct format for citing a DOI is as follows: doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(08)61345-8
  2. Open the following DOI site in your browser:
  3. Enter the entire DOI citation in the text box provided, and then click Go.
    The document that matches the DOI citation will display in your browser window.

The DOI scheme is administered by the International DOI Foundation. Many of the world's leading publishers have come together to build a DOI-based document linking scheme known as CrossRef.

Reasons of development of life-threatening arrhythmias that lead to sudden and total death in cases of cardiovascular diseases are still unclear, though cardiac research of this problem is conducted throughout the world. Damage of connective tissues insulation cover of the heart’s conductive pathways with oxidation of ectopic nodes can lead to life-threatening arrhythmias. This damage has never been considered before as a cause of electrical instability of the heart. Accordingly, treatment of such patients should change, and consequently should reduce the total number of sudden deaths due to cardiovascular diseases.

The speed of electricity conduction from the heart to the nervous system and its distribution throughout the body remains underestimated. Slowdown of electric magnetic induction (acceleration) between the heart and the central nervous system as well as slowdown of its distribution results in insufficient speed of electric flow and reduction of bioelectric processes of the body. This leads to activation of the sympathetic nervous system with the subsequent cascade of pressor mechanisms and development of essential hypertension.
