Portuguese to English: ACUTE REVERSE CARDIAC REMODELING DURING SILDENAFIL ADMINISTRATION IN HEART FAILURE PATIENTS. General field: Medical
Source text - Portuguese Introdução
Hipertensão Pulmonar (HP) é comorbidade frequente em pacientes com insuficiência cardíaca (IC) crônica, e sabidamente um fator de mau prognóstico, sendo a principal responsável pela mortalidade precoce no pós – operatório de transplante cardíaco (TC). Diante do elevado risco de falência ventricular direita do coração transplantado, pacientes candidatos ao TC são submetidos ao teste de reatividade pulmonar para determinação do prognóstico.

Ações de preservação ambiental trazem benefícios não só para a GM, como para todo o planeta
Aliar produtividade à preservação do meio ambiente é um compromisso que a General Motors assumiu há várias décadas. Antes mesmo de se falar em responsabilidade ambiental, a companhia já contava com um Departamento de Meio Ambiente, que cuidava dos resíduos líquidos e estava atento à legislação. “Em 1985, ingressei nesse Departamento. Apesar de, à época, a legislação ainda ser embrionária, já tínhamos uma estrutura para resolver todas as questões que as novas leis iriam levantar”, explica Nelson Branco, Gerente de Serviços Ambientais da GM.

To unite productivity and preservation of the environment is a promise that General Motors assumed many decades ago. Before exactly speaking about environmental responsibility, the company already had a Department of Environment, which looked after the liquid waste and was attentive of legislation. “in 1985, I entered this Department. Although at the time, the legislation was still only embryonic we already had a structure for solving all the questions that the new laws would go on to raise”, explains Nelson Branco, Manager of Environmental Services at GM.
