Background: It is reported that 20 to 30% of patients are not responders to this treatment (Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy). The reasoning in this merely theoretical paper shows the plausible danger that can be brought by measurements apparatus, in the occurrence the CRT especially when it is sophisticated.
Objective: In Physical Cardiochemistry field our overall purpose is to bring a contribution to heart health. It is needful to draw attention for caregivers and manufacturers, especially with respect to the magnetism these apparatuses may exhibit.
Methods: The Observation and documentary research are used. It is recalled hereby successively energy metabolism in healthy cardiomyocyte, adaptive energy metabolism of a hypertrophied and insufficient heart, cardiac resynchronization therapy and energy metabolism of the cardiomyocyte with its potential effects on both glucose oxidation and fatty acids oxidation.
Results: It is shown a plausible interaction between oxygen magnetic field, paramagnetic by nature, and pacemaker and/or defibrillator electromagnetic field according to the sacral principle of “like dissolves like” with all evil consequences on patients.
Conclusion: It will be necessary to evaluate later not only the behavior of the various energetic substrates of a hypertrophied heart as a function of the variation of the magnetic field strength but also the content of the probable substances produced in the presence of a magnetic field and with a potentially harmful effect on cardiac function. Convinced technology has its setbacks, the pacemakers and/or defibrillators manufacturers are invited to a greater rigor, greater caution and sustained care in building these devices. In next publication study of a case (CRT-D), where the diabetes has been observed, will be outlined.

The effects of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system on the human body are so diverse and our knowledge about them is ever growing. Angiotensin 1-7 has been proven to play protective roles in patients with cardiovascular disorders including but not limited to hypertension.
As is the case with Africa, the prevalence of hypertension in Sudan is rising, and its complications could be delayed by pharmacologically manipulating the levels of renin-angiotensin system metabolites.
The aim of this review is to compare the advantageous and deleterious effects of Angiotensin 2 in contrast to those of Angiotensin 1-7 and to assert the well-established protective effects of Angiotensin 1-7 (systemically and locally) in hypertensive patients
