ABSTRACT

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARSCoV-2) infection not only affects the respiratory system but also induces coagulation abnormalities and thrombosis. We report a middle-aged woman who presented during the Covid-19 pandemic with sudden-onset acute left upper limb ischaemia of short duration, with no history of dry cough, breathlessness or fever, and tested positive on TrueNAT for SARS-CoV-2. Later, she developed deep venous thrombosis of the right lower limb during isolation in the hospital.

ABSTRACT

The low student learning outcomes, coupled with the necessity of students to study independently at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, added to the list of problems for basic physics lectures and the Vision of IAIN Batusangkar to integrate the Qur’an in lectures. So, learning media is needed in the form of Basic Physics Student Worksheets integrated with the Qur’an with the Scaffolding Approach. This Student Worksheet contains material that guides students to learn to achieve independence. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the use of basic physics student worksheets integrated with the Alqur’an with a scaffolding approach to student learning outcomes and to see student responses to the use of student worksheets. The type of research is pre-experimental with one group pretest and posttest design. Sampling used a total sampling technique, with a sample of students from the Department of Chemistry for the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 years, that is 15 and 14 students. The research instrument was in the form of learning outcomes test questions and student response questionnaires. Based on the data analysis, the following results were obtained: 1) Both research phase 1 and research phase 2, all students gave a positive response to learning using Student Worksheets. 2) The use of basic physics student worksheets was not effective in phase 1 research, and in phase 2 research it was quite effective in improving student learning outcomes. So it was concluded that the Basic Physics Student Worksheet integrated with the Qur'an with the Scaffolding approach was quite effective in improving student learning outcomes. © 2022 American Institute of Physics Inc..

ABSTRACT

Background: Listening to music is a common practice among software developers. Music listening after work can help release work-related stress;while listening to music at work can improve work efficiency and make tedious work more enjoyable. The working environment of developers in the past few years has changed dramatically due to the vast adoption of remote and hybrid work policies. Aims: We aim to understand how listening to music at work affects remote developers' perceived productivity and creativity. Method: We investigated 130 software developers and collected their music listening habits during remote work in a questionnaire. We studied the impact of listening to music on developers' creativity and productivity while working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Results: Our survey data suggests that developers generally feel more productive and creative when listening to music during remote working conditions. Conclusion: We found that developers who listen to music feel more productive and creative while working remotely due to reducing environment distractions. © 2022 Association for Computing Machinery.

ABSTRACT

Background: Effective hand hygiene is one of the most cost-efficient means of preventing infectious diseases in the community. Studies conducted to assess the hand hygiene practices of the general population in India are relatively limited. The present study was conducted with the aim to assess hand hygiene practices among the participants visiting the outpatient department (OPD) of a dental institute in the Purvanchal region in India. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 880 participants visiting the OPD of a dental college in the Purvanchal region. The data were collected using a pretested questionnaire focusing on the hand hygiene practices of the participants. Statistical analysis was done using Chi-square test and the level of significance was set at 5%. Results: Results showed that 98.5% of the respondents used soap/antiseptic liquid soap or hand sanitizer. The frequency of handwashing increased with the improvement in socioeconomic status, with almost 70% of upper-class participants washing their hands daily 5-6 times or more (P = 0.001). A significant association was seen between education and extension of handwashing (P = 0.001). Conclusion: Majority of the population were using soap and water for handwashing which shows that people are aware that proper hand hygiene is necessary to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, especially COVID-19. However, more work is needed to educate people from lower socioeconomic status about good hand hygiene practices.

ABSTRACT

Background: Patients with COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) present varying disease severity;with such heterogeneity in clinical presentations, it can be challenging to assess the severity and progression of the disease. In addition, no specific markers have been identified that would indicate the diagnosis or prognosis of the disease. Therefore, this study was aimed to determine whether a panel of hematological and inflammatory biomarkers were indicative of disease severity in the assessment and the prognosis of COVID-19. Methods: The retrospective cross-sectional study was carried out in a university hospital in South India between May 2020 and September 2020. The participants were 997 patients with COVID-19, confirmed by real-time reverse transcriptasepolymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Information regarding demographics and laboratory tests was obtained from medical records. Association analysis was conducted using SPSS, version 16, and a P-value <0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: Inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and D-dimer, calculated inflammatory ratios, and hemoglobin were significantly increased in cases of severe COVID-19. Leucocytosis with increased absolute neutrophil count and decreased absolute lymphocyte count were observed. Conclusion: Haematological and inflammatory markers may indicate the severity of the disease. The severity of COVID-19 was indicated by elevated total white cells, increased neutrophillymphocyte, and platelet-lymphocyte ratios. Increasing levels of CRP indicated a severe prognosis of the disease. D-dimer elevations may indicate the incidence of thromboembolic episodes. Therefore, hematological indices were considered applicable in assessing the progression of the disease and for the risk stratification of the disease. © 2022 Shriaz University of Medical Sciences

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally altered the pedagogical approach to education at every level of training, including at the undergraduate level and graduate or professional level. These unprecedented times have tested academic resilience, agility, creativity, and adaptability in all aspects, including inventive alternative teaching methods. With an increasing reliance on virtual instruction, self-directed learning, and hybrid models of instruction, certain approaches of hands-on training, practice-based learning, and evaluation have had to evolve. The University of Minnesota's Master of Medical Device Innovation students are typically immersed in clinical environments through physician shadowing in the operating room, evaluating unmet needs and untapped areas of potential innovation. Engineers who can immerse themselves in surgical education, shadowing, and frontline medical experience can better appreciate, recognize, and enhance current medical technologies and processes. With the OR case restrictions in the era of COVID-19, these learners were faced with limited clinical exposure and thus limited familiarity with the dynamics and processes of clinical practice. As such not only education, but the functioning of the entire industry is stunted. From an instructive perspective, this creates a challenge for students attempting to generate relevant and feasible practicum ideas, accurate prototypes, and offers fewer opportunities to develop these ideas alongside the experts and medical professionals - the target audience. Simulation education provides a means for students to engage with clinical practice in a meaningful way that bridges the gap between clinical exposure and virtual learning. A hands-on approach in which students were able to practice fundamental surgical skills of suturing, knot-tying, and the basics of laparoscopy. Learners were offered three didactic workshop sessions that introduced these skills and then were given opportunities to perform with supervision from expert educators. Low-cost, low-fidelity models of pertinent anatomy and physiology provided students an immersive experience that allowed them to develop a deeper understanding of interventional skills. Three two hour-long sessions of guided skills practice on low-cost simulators were attended by the 2022 Masters of Medical Device Innovation cohort and subjective measures of their understanding of the fundamental concepts were evaluated. High-level findings of these workshops suggest that simulation education is an effective tool in advancing the baseline understanding of surgical principles as opposed to virtual instruction and may offer some further benefit, not possible even through clinical shadowing itself. © 2022 by ASME

ABSTRACT

The disruptive changes of technological advancements and the COVID-19 pandemic have pushed the education sector to leap into a new learning model, known as hybrid learning. Hybrid learning implements both onsite and online learning to students simultaneously. This research aims to display the impacts of information technology (IT) usage, IT adoption, and innovation capabilities to increase learning process performance during hybrid learning. This research has used a quantitative approach by gathering survey data from 1,160 college students during a hybrid learning process. Hybrid learning had been conducted for four months before the survey was taken in December 2021. The findings show that IT usage, IT adoption, and innovation capabilities significantly affect the hybrid learning process performance. Moreover, IT adoption has the most robust beta coefficient, followed by innovation capabilities and IT usage. Therefore, this research posits that the hybrid learning process performance greatly depends on the adoption of IT, followed by the innovation capabilities of the lecturers. IT usage also supports the hybrid learning process performance. Thus, the three variables are essential in successfully maintaining the hybrid learning process. © 2022 Society for Research and Knowledge Management. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

We measure inequities from the COVID-19 pandemic on mortality and hospitalizations in the United States during the early months of the outbreak. We discuss challenges in measuring health outcomes and health inequality, some of which are specific to COVID-19 and others that complicate attribution during most large health shocks. As in past epidemics, pre-existing biological and social vulnerabilities profoundly influenced the distribution of disease. In addition to the elderly, Hispanic, Black and Native American communities were disproportionately affected by the virus, particularly when assessed using the years of potential life lost metric. For example, Hispanic and Black Americans in 2020 saw 39.5 and 25 percent increases in excess mortality relative to trend, compared to a less than 15 percent increase for Whites;we find losses in potential years of life three to four times larger among Hispanic and Black compared to White Americans. Individual-level data from a commercially insured population show that otherwise similar Black and Hispanic enrollees were hospitalized due to COVID-19 at a higher rate than White enrollees. We provide a conceptual framework and initial empirical analysis which seek to shed light on contributors to pandemic-related health inequality, and suggest areas for future research.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 infection is well-known to produce different neurological complications, including cerebrovascular diseases. Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by transient segmental vasoconstriction of the cerebral vasculature, has been rarely reported in association with COVID-19 infection. The causative agent, the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), binds to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2) receptors for its entry into the host cell. This leads to downregulation of the ACE-2 and increased activity of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone (RAAS) axis resulting in sympathetic overactivity and vasoconstriction. This might be the possible mechanism of RCVS in COVID-19. We hereby report a case of RCVS occurring in a SARS-CoV-2infected patient. This was a 38-year-old male without any comorbidities or risk factors, who presented with headache and confusion. His SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR was positive. MRI of the brain was normal but cerebral angiography revealed segmental vasoconstriction in bilateral middle cerebral arteries and the terminal part of the internal carotid arteries, which resolved almost completely after 2 weeks. He was treated with oral nimodipine 60 mg every 6 hourly. A database search revealed 2 previous cases of RCVS associated with COVID-19. In conclusion, RCVS is a rare complication of COVID-19. It is possibly under-recognized as only a few COVID-19 patients with headaches undergo cerebral angiography especially when parenchymal brain imaging is normal.

ABSTRACT

The presence of autonomous robots is increasing in every field by the day. Robots require computer vision to interact with the surrounding environment. Computer vision is an area of study which deals with the algorithms which interpret the data from images or videos. One scenario in which robots could be helpful is in the medical field. This paper presents a set of algorithms which cater to the needs of a medical robot. An object detection algorithm is trained for the objects expected in medical environment. The detected object's 3-D coordinates are extracted. To find the 2-D orientation of the object a novel approach based on edge detection and linear regression is described and implemented. These algorithms help the robots to serve in the medical environment where the contagious diseases are a threat to healthcare workers as seen in the COVID-19 pandemic. © 2021 IEEE.
