first_imgThe former police officer who fatally shot her neighbor after entering the wrong apartment has been found guilty of murder.A grand jury in Texas came to the conclusion, Tuesday afternoon after an emotional testimony from the officer Amber Guyger last week and hours of deliberation this week.According to the report, Guyger fatally shot Botham Jean as he sat in his apartment watching tv on September 6th of 2018. Guyger claimed she believed Jean was an intruder after she walked into the wrong apartment.After a short confrontation with Jean, Guyger says she shot him because she feared for her life. It wasn’t under later that Guyger says she realized that she had parked on the wrong floor and entered the wrong apartment.Guyger’s lawyers argued that Guyger had a right to defend herself under the stand your ground law, however, prosecutors argued that the “castle doctrine” did not apply to Guyger because she entered someone else’s home.“It protects homeowners against intruders – and now all of a sudden the intruder is trying to use it against the homeowner,” prosecutor, Jason Fine said.Prosecutors also stated that Guyger despite being and officer of the law with specific training, she did not render adequate aid to Jean nor did she use the first aid supplies she had with her in her work bag.While Guyger has been found guilty of murder which carries a potential life sentence, Judge Tammy Kemp is allowing the jury to consider a manslaughter conviction, which typically carries a sentence of between two and 20 years.last_img read more

Previous clinical studies of this therapy have been promising and have shown improvements in patients’ quality of life and heart function.The CardiAMP investigational therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for ischemic heart failure which occurs after a heart attack. The therapy includes a pre-procedure screening test. A small bone marrow sample is taken and screened to identify patients with a higher likelihood of benefitting from the treatment.Related StoriesImplanted device uses microcurrent to exercise heart muscle in cardiomyopathy patientsMaternal proximity to oil and gas areas associated with congenital heart defects in babiesRepurposing a heart drug could increase survival rate of children with ependymomaIf a patient with University of Minnesota Health qualifies for the therapy, additional bone marrow is collected, which is immediately processed to concentrate the cells into the therapeutic dosage. The dose is then delivered through a catheterization procedure directly into the damaged portions of the heart. Therefore, the patient’s own cells are used in a therapy designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing response.”Treatment of heart failure can be very challenging to the patient as well as for the care providers. CardiAMP is an investigational therapy using patients’ own cell lines to treat the failing heart muscle,” said Ganesh Raveendran, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Cardiovascular Division, University of Minnesota Medical School. “This therapy, if proven to be successful, could complement the current treatment modalities available to the patient and eventually reduce the need for LVAD therapy and heart transplantation.”Heart failure is a serious, chronic, and progressive condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs, and, for which typically there is no cure. However, many people with heart failure lead full, happy lives when the condition is managed properly. In 2015, an estimated 5.7 million Americans over the age of 20 were reported to have heart failure, according to the American Heart Association (AHA). The prevalence of heart failure continues to increase due to the aging population and the increase in major cardiovascular risk factors, including obesity and diabetes.last_img read more
