The Effect of Pseudoephedrine on the Heart
Division:Health Sciences
City:Thornhill, ON
School:As-Sadiq Islamic School
Abstract:Reports of cold remedies causing heart attacks led to this unique study. Digital video microscopy of Daphnia magna hearts, known to be similar to human hearts, when exposed to Pseudoephedrine showed progressive and dangerous increase in heart rate. Extrapolation to humans suggests one of the many reasons for heart attacks.
