Cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart muscles are unable to contract properly. So because of this the heart is unable to pump the blood to the whole body properly. This condition can lead to heart failure. Cardiomyopathy may be of two type- intrinsic cardiomyopathy and extrinsic cardiomyopathy. In this the heart muscles may become too weak to pump blood to the body or may contract irregularly that can even lead to sudden death. The signs and symptoms are usually similar to other heart problems also and the common signs and symptoms include shortness of breath, swelling of the legs due to accumulation of fluid in the body, cough, weakness and dizziness. The conditions only worsen with time so the disease should be treated at proper time. It can be diagnosed by either chest X-ray or by electrocardiogram. The person with severe problems may even need heart transplant.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
