ABSTRACT

Background: The values of viral load in COVID-19 disease have gained relevance, seeking to understand its prognostic value and its behavior in the course of the disease, although there have been no conclusive results. In this study we sought to analyze serum viral load as a predictor of clinical outcome of the disease, as well as its association with inflammatory markers. Methods: An observational and retrospective study in a private hospital in North Mexico, patients with SARS-COV-2 infection confirmed by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were followed through clinical outcome, viral load measurement, quantification of inflammatory markers and lymphocyte subpopulations. For the analysis, multiple regression models were performed. Results: We studied 105 patients [47 (SD 1.46) years old, 68.6% men]. After analysis with multiple regression models, there was an association between viral load at admission and vaccination schedule (β-value=-0.279, p= 0.007), age (β-value= 0.010, p = 0.050), mechanical ventilation (β-value= 0.872, p = 0.007), lactate dehydrogenase (β-value= 1.712, p= 0.004), D-dimer values at admission (β-value= 0.847, p= 0.013) and subpopulation of B lymphocytes at admission (β-value= -0.527, p= 0.042). There was no association with days of hospitalization, use of nasal prongs or high flux mask. Peak viral load (10 days after symptoms onset) was associated with peak IL-6 (β-value= 0.470, p= 0.011). Peak viral load matched with peak procalcitonin and minimal lymphocyte values. C-reactive protein peak was before the peak of viral load. The minimum value viral load was documented on day 12 after symptom onset;it matched with the minimum values of IL-6 and ferritin, and the peak of D-dimer. Conclusions: SARS-COV-2 admission viral load is associated with vaccination status, mechanical ventilation, and different inflammatory markers.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C) is a hyperinflammatory state involving two or more organs associated with a previous diagnosis of SARSCoV- 2. Cardiac dysfunction is described in 80-85% of cases. Currently, there is a knowledge gap regarding long-term cardiac and functional outcomes in children diagnosed with MIS-C. METHOD(S): We conducted a retrospective chart review of children < 21 years admitted to our hospital for MIS-C between January 2020 and January 2022. We collected demographic, clinical, laboratory, imaging data [left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), coronary artery dilation (CAD)], and functional status score (FSS) during hospital stay and long-term (up to 6 months) follow up. Using a student t-test and chi-square test, we compared the outcomes of children admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) vs outside the PICU. RESULT(S): Out of the 40 children admitted to the hospital with MIS-C during the study period, 16 (40%) were admitted to the PICU while 24 (60%) were admitted outside the PICU. Of the PICU patients, 13.33% showed CAD and 31.25% had a LVEF <=55% on at least one echocardiogram during their hospital stay. Of the echocardiograms completed on the non-PICU patients (n=22), 18.18% showed CAD and 9.09% had a LVEF <=55% on at least one echo during admission. Between PICU and non-PICU patients, there was a significant (p <= 0.05) difference in mean length of stay (13.56 vs. 6.16 days respectively), lowest LVEF (56.14% vs 62.58%), and change in Functional Status Score (DELTAFSS) (0.5 vs 0.0). Of the 16 PICU patients, 11 had follow-up echocardiogram and none had persistent CAD and/or LVEF <=55%. Of the 20/24 (83.33%) non-PICU patients with echocardiograms at follow-up, 10% displayed persistent coronary artery dilation while none had LVEF <=55%. At follow-up, a significant proportion of non-PICU patients had persistent CAD as compared to PICU patients (p<=0.0001), but there was no difference in LVEF and DELTAFSS amongst the two cohorts. CONCLUSION(S): A significant proportion of children admitted outside the PICU had persistent coronary abnormalities at up to 6 month follow up compared to patients admitted in the PICU. However, none of the patients had persistent low LVEF (<=55%) or functional disability at up to 6 month follow up (DELTAFSS).

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Since the recognition of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), different immune therapies have been utilized as monotherapy (MT) or combination therapy (CT). Currently there is a lack of sufficient literature examining the long-term cardiac and functional outcomes in children following MT versus CT for MIS-C. METHOD(S): We conducted a retrospective chart review of children < 21 years old admitted to our tertiary care children's hospital for MIS-C from January 2020 to January 2022. We collected clinical data, especially cardiac imaging data [left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), coronary artery dilation (CAD)], and functional status scores (FSS) during hospital stay and long-term (up to 6 months) follow up. We then compared the long-term outcomes of children who received three different treatment regimens during hospitalization: Steroid only (S), Steroid and IVIg (S + IVIg), and Steroid, IVIg, and Anakinra (S + IVIg + Ana), using a student t-test and Fisher's exact test. RESULT(S): Of the 40 children admitted with MIS-C during the study period, one who did not receive any immune therapy was excluded and of the remaining 39, the number of patients in each treatment group (S, S+IVIg, S+IVIg+Ana) was 13 (33%), 14 (36%) and 12 (31%) respectively. During hospitalization, among the S, S+IVIg, and S+IVIg+Ana groups, the mean (SD) LVEF were 63.9 (4.9)%, 60.0 (7.2)%, 55.9 (9.1)% respectively and CAD was documented in 1/11 (9.1%), 3/14 (21.4%) and 2/11 (18.2%) patients, respectively and at up to 6-month follow-up, the mean (SD) LVEF were 63.9 (2.8)%, 63.5 (4.0)%, and 66.3 (3.1)%, respectively, and CAD was documented in 0/11 (0%), 0/10 (0%), 2/10 (20%) patients, respectively. There was no significant difference in the proportion of patients with persistent low (<= 55%) LVEF or CAD across the groups at long-term follow-up (p>0.05). There was no significant difference in DELTAFSS across the 3 groups at discharge [mean (SD): S 0 (0), S+IVIg 0.3 (1.1), and S+IVIg+Ana 0.3 (0.9)] as well as at follow-up [mean (SD): S 0 (0), S+IVIg 0 (0), and S+IVIg+Ana 0.3 (0.7)]. CONCLUSION(S): In our cohort of MIS-C patients, cardiac and functional outcomes were favorable at follow-up irrespective of combination of immune therapies offered during hospitalization.

ABSTRACT

Background: Information about COVID infection in physicians is limited. This knowledge would allow the implementation of actions to reduce its impact. The objective was determining the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection in physicians from health institutions in Argentina, its characteristics, and associated factors. Methods: We conducted a multicenter prospective / retrospective cohort study with nested case-control study. Physicians active at the beginning of the pandemic were included, those on leave due to risk factors were excluded. The incidence of confirmed cases was estimated. We conducted bivariate analyses with various factors and used those significant in a logistic regression. Results: Three hundred and forty three physicians with COVID-infection from 8 centers were included. The incidence of disease was 12.1% and that of global absenteeism related to COVID, 34.1%. Almost 70% of close contacts were work-related. In the multivariate analysis living in Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (CABA) (OR 0.19, p = 0.01), working in high-risk areas (OR 0.22, p = 0.01) and individual transportation (OR 0, 34, p = 0.03) reduced the risk of COVID. The odds of infection increased 5.6 times (p = 0.02) for each close contact isolation. Discussion: The number of close contact isolation increased considerably the risk of infection. Living in Buenos Aires City, individual transpor-tation and working in high-risk areas reduced it. Given the high frequency of close contact in the workplace, we strongly recommend the reinforcement of prevention measures in rest areas and non-COVID-wards.

ABSTRACT

Mental disorders in the young adult population are becoming more frequent, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to the need to find new ways to adapt to therapeutic methods, offering greater attractiveness for this age range, and in many studies, it has been reported that this can be achieved thanks to video games. In this work, a controller design for video games that allows to obtain some of the most relevant biological signals of the relationship between the physiological state and the mental state of the user is proposed. An accessible and non-invasive instrument was built, in the form of a video game controller, to make measurements of heart rate and the galvanic response of the skin, two physiological variables that play a vital role in determining a person’s emotional state, that allows, in turn, to play video games that are designed to be able to perform actions based on the measurements of biosignals, such as modifying the difficulty, improving the user experience, etc. Making use of two biosignal sensors (photoplethysmography and galvanic skin response), the controller is developed to offer non-invasive biofeedback while playing computer video games, which provides an effective approach to developing interactive and customizable diagnostic and therapeutic psychological tools. This work, which involves the unification of various ideas and fields, could mean an advance in the field of the development of digital alternatives for therapies related to mental health, as well as a tool that allows a greater approach on the part of the community to which it is focused. This may mean that, in future developments, there is greater cohesion and a greater boom in treatments for people considered young adults. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

The development of systems that help automate and manage people’s lives at different levels is what has driven the enormous growth that humanity has had. On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant an unprecedented event that has marked a before and after for the entire world. As a result of this, companies and institutions implemented various technological tools to have a greater capacity to respond to the challenges generated by this and other similar potential diseases, however, the development of these technological tools is not always clear and accessible, particularly to small companies and to academic institutions. This paper describes the development of a web tool for the analysis of physical and mental health data of students using a COVID-19 screening tool, commonly used psychological questionnaires and inventories which help diagnose symptoms of mental illnesses, and a microblogging tool for further natural language processing. The results and conclusions reached at the end of this work are also presented. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives HAI is an immune-mediated chronic inflammatory liver condition of uncertain etiology. There are genetic factors and triggering agents such as toxicity, infections, and medications, among others. Case summary An 18-year-old woman with nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and jaundice, positivity for Hepatitis A IgM (IGM-HAV). PCR SARS COV 2 negative, creatinine 0.56, FA 297, GGT 463, DHL 756, INR 1.4 BT 5.32, BI 2.87, BD 2.45, ALB 3.57, AST 136, ALT 135, Hb 8.9, Neutrophils 500. Hematology concludes with hemophagocytic syndrome (SH). HCV AND HBV negative, IGG 1560, ANTI DNA 108, ANA 1:80, IGM-HAV reactive, EBV 29.9125 copies/ml. Cyclosporine is administered by SH. 10 months after she is assessed in the liver clinic for the persistence of transaminasemia. By ultrasound hepatosplenomegaly, without dilation of the bile duct. Liver biopsy reported inflammatory infiltrate of periportal predominance with interface activity, macrovesicular steatosis, without fibrosis, without hemophagocytosis, with biochemical and histological data compatible with HAI with a simplified score of 7 points. (Fig. 1). Discussion HAI is associated with positive autoantibodies, hypergammaglobulinemia and necro inflammatory features in histology. HAV and EBV can induce HAI, as it induces autologous antibodies against triose phosphate isomerase. The patient has complicated EBV infection with SH and persistence of IGM-HAV for 11 months. Liver biopsy with autoimmune hepatitis data, probably as a result of EBV infection and false positive for IgM-HAV for EBV coinfection. Conclusion A woman with EBV, probable false-positive HAV and EBV-induced HAI is reported. Funding The resources used in this study were from the hospital without any additional financing Declaration of interest The authors declare no potential conflicts of interest.

ABSTRACT

Quarantines and virtual learning became necessary as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This study investigates the challenges and opportunities in virtual classes;and how they affect the academic goals. There were 150 secondary students from Junior and Senior High School levels of education in the Philippines, who were deliberately selected;and they participated in the quantitative online survey that used a 62-item self-made 4-point Likert scale questionnaire, with 0.81 reliability coefficients. The data were evaluated by means of the percentage, the mean, and the standard deviation. Sex and secondary education levels were used, in order to compare the students' challenges and opportunities. One-way ANOVA compared the male and female respondents' perceived challenges and opportunities. The results revealed that junior high-school (JHS) girls highlighted academic satisfaction;while school-life balance, and virtual learning helped as challenges and opportunities. The females found school-life balance, communication (F(1,149)=11.098;F(1,149)=8.430, p<0.01), academic fulfilment, self-directedness, and time-management (F(1,149)=4.224;F(1,149)=4.470;F(1,149)=4.030, p<0.05) more difficult than did the males. Senior high school (SHS) students were less satisfied with the virtual teaching (F(1,149)=14.391, p<0.001), technology use (F(1,149)=7.342, p<0.01), and communication (F(1,149)=3.934, p<0.05) than JHS students. Males were more satisfied with school and teachers' assistance (F(1,149)=7.482, p<0.01). Some viewed virtual learning more favourably;and they regard themselves as being adaptive;they think the subject matter and learning tasks are interrelated;and they viewed virtual feedback more positively (F(1,149)=6.438;F(1,149)=5.900;F(1,149)=5.183;F(1,149)=4.470, p<0.05). The JHS students reported subject matter and the virtual learning tasks as being interrelated;and they valued virtual feedback, school and teacher support, and the adaptability to change. Challenges and opportunities may serve as the foundation for establishing a more inclusive policy on virtual learning implementation, with school and stakeholders' cooperation needed to sustain learners' holistic development. © Authors.

ABSTRACT

During the COVID-19 crisis, the French National institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE) used aggregated and anonymous counting indicators based on network signaling data of three of the four mobile network operators (MNOs) in France to measure the distribution of population over the territory during and after the lockdown and to enrich the toolbox of high-frequency economic indicators used to follow the economic situation. INSEE's strategy was to combine information coming from different MNOs together with the national population estimates it usually produces in order to get more reliable statistics and to measure uncertainty. This paper relates and situates this initiative within the long-term methodological collaborations between INSEE and different MNOs, and INSEE, Eurostat, and some other European national statistical institutes (NSIs). These collaborations aim at constructing experimental official statistics on the population present in a given place and at a given time, from mobile phone data (MPD). The COVID-19 initiative has confirmed that more methodological investments are needed to increase relevance of and trust in these data. We suggest this methodological work should be done in close collaboration between NSIs, MNOs, and research, to construct the most reliable statistical processes. This work requires exploiting raw data, so the research and statistical exemptions present in the general data protection regulation (GDPR) should be introduced as well in the new e-privacy regulation. We also raise the challenges of articulating commercial and public interest rationales and articulating transparency and commercial secrets requirements. Finally, it elaborates on the role NSIs can play in the MPD valorization ecosystem.

ABSTRACT

This article analyzes the communication strategies applied by the Peruvian Government during the second wave of Covid-19. In order to support the variable "communication strategies" in times of crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the following approaches were used: Castillo-Esparcia (2020), Soto & Fernandez (2020), Macassi (2020), Guibarra & Sanchez (2020), Lazaro & Herrera (2020). The research was developed methodologically with a quantitative approach. Ruling with the criteria of a non-experimental, descriptive design. An analysis was carried out at 734 hours of press conferences;40 communication products from the communication campaigns 'Let's not lower our guard' and 'Put my shoulder' and 200 posts published on Facebook. The variables were operationalized in 3 dimensions and 15 indicators, measured using observation as a technique, and the observation guide as a data collection instrument. It was found as a final result that the press conferences were one of the main strategies that have served to maintain communication by the Government towards the Peruvian people. Additionally, Facebook was the main social network that served as a channel to communicate issues related to Covid-19, and the two communication campaigns were mostly informative and preventive.

ABSTRACT

During the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the major concerns at the Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de América Latina (UCAL;the University of Sciences and Arts of Latin America) has been to keep offering highquality education with effective teaching methodologies and creativity at its core. This article aims to describe and understand the use of digital tools for class preparation, synchronous encounters, storage, interaction, collaborative work and assessment by UCAL’s instructors in creative careers. It finds that instructors were proactive about learning and using a variety of digital tools. Gamification apps and interactive boards were instructors’ favourites because they tended to motivate their students the most. No statistically significant associations were found between tool selection and course, sex, or age. Based on the evidence, this article will propose general guidelines for a training plan for instructors. © 2022

ABSTRACT

Given the appearance of a "new virus" in the of Wuhan city, China, called SARSCoV- 2, which causes the well-known severe acute respiratory syndrome (COVID- 19), many scientists are trying to find a solution against the virus that has caused a pandemic. In this search, a transmembrane glycoprotein called dipeptidyl peptidase 4 or DPP-4 was found present on the surface of different types of cells and a target in MERS-Co-V infection, which opens hope by suspecting that DPP- 4 can be a target in different coronaviruses by serving as a therapeutic strategy. Added to this, there are results that find elevated DPP-4 in patients with severe complications from COVID-19, which may be a possible marker of severity. However, there is still little emphasis on the identification and association of this glycoprotein with COVID-19. To this effect, a bibliographic review was carried out on the most significant aspects of Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 and its function against COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

Background and aims: A global study with equitable participation for cirrhosis and chronic liver disease (CLD) outcomes is needed. We initiated the Chronic Liver disease Evolution And Registry for Events and Decompensation (CLEARED) study to provide this global perspective. Aim to evaluate determinants of inpatient mortality and organ dysfunction in a multi-center worldwide study. Method: We prospectively enrolled pts with CLD/Cirrhosis >18 years without organ transplant or COVID-19 who were admitted non-electively. To maintain equity in outcome analysis, a maximum of 50 pts/site were allowed. Data for admission variables, hospital course, and inpatient outcomes (ICU, death, organ dysfunction [ODF]) were recorded. This was analyzed for death and ODs using significant variables on admission and including World Bank classification of low/middle-income countries (LMIC). A model for in-hospital mortality for all variables during the hospital course, including ODs) was analyzed. Results: 1383 pts (55 ± 13 yrs, 64% men, 39% White, 30% Asian, 10% Hispanic, 9% Black, 12% other) were enrolled from 49 centers (Fig A). 39% were from high-income while the rest were from LMICs. Admission MELDNa 23 (6–40) with history in past 6 months of hospitalizations 51%, infections 25%, HE 32%, AKI 23%, prior LVP 15%, hydrothorax 8% and HCC 4%. Leading etiologies were Alcohol 46% then NASH 23%, HCV 11% and HBV 13%. Most were on lactulose 52%, diuretics 53%, PPI 49% and statins 11%, SBP prophylaxis 16%, beta-blockers 35% and rifaximin 31%. 90% were admitted for liver-related reasons;GI bleed 30%, HE 34%, AKI 33%, electrolyte issues 30%, anasarca 24% and 25% admission infections. In-hospital course: Median LOS was 7 (1–140) days with 25% needing ICU. 15% died in hospital, 3% were transplanted, 46% developed AKI,15% grade 3–4 HE, 14% shock, 13% nosocomial infections and 13% needed ventilation. Logistic Regression: Fig B shows that liver-related/unrelated factors on admission which predicted in-hospital mortality and development of organ dysfunction with MELDNa and Infections being common among all models. Nosocomial infections and organ dysfunctions predicted mortality when all variables were considered. High-income countries had better mortality outcomes likely due to transplant and ICU availability. AUCs were >0.75 (Figure Presented) Conclusion: In this worldwide equitable experience, admission cirrhosis severity and infections are associated with inpatient outcomes, which are greater in low-income settings. Liver-related and unrelated factors and regional variations are important in defining critical care goals and outcome models in inpatients with cirrhosis.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: Alongside the inequities surfaced by COVID-19, a confluence of demographic and policy-related shifts over the last few decades has elevated the education of multilingual learners (MLs) in state education agency (SEA) leaders' work. This study employs an ecological perspective to examine how SEA leaders promote social justice policy implementation in their efforts to uphold MLs' civil rights under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Research Methods: Given its embeddedness in a research-practice partnership (RPP) that emphasizes integration of researchers' expertise with SEA leaders' real-world knowledge, the study employs a participatory research approach. Drawing on 23 semistructured interviews with SEA leaders and 20 hours of observations during RPP meetings, the authors engaged in an iterative analysis process involving coding, memoing, and extensive member checking. Findings: Findings show the dual roles that leaders played to uphold the spirit of civil rights law across local education agencies (LEAs) and within SEAs, and they highlight the structural, cultural, and political dynamics that operated to enable or constrain this work. The study also reveals that cross-state collaboration may be a powerful mechanism for upholding ML civil rights in ways that go beyond compliance toward transformation and social justice. Implications: Although ESSA expanded the role of the SEA in policy implementation, little attention has been given to supporting state-level organizational development. Our findings suggest the need to allocate resources to support SEA capacity development. Such support is ever more critical as state systems work to develop coherent and aligned supports in response to COVID-19-related disparities.

ABSTRACT

The shift to distance learning has created unique perspectives and challenges to educational stakeholders specifically among teachers who are tasked with keeping teaching and learning on track despite their professional, technical, and personal concerns, and inadequate familiarity to the new learning modality. While these realities have been challenging the capability of teachers, they also open the doors for opportunities of levelling up to a new education landscape and harnessing potentials which may be useful for the furtherance of the teaching practices. The present qualitative study aims to document Science teachers’ perspectives, challenges and opportunities in the teaching of Science courses during the pandemic. It consists of the various insights, initiatives, coping strategies and actions, and opportunities of eight Filipino Science teachers towards securing a responsive and efficient learning management in the midst of the unforeseen challenges in the education sector brought by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. © 2022, North American Business Press.
