ABSTRACT

Academic success is a priority, and according to the literature review, it is associated with the application of problem-based learning methodologies or the continuous assessment model. The case study performed was based on the course unit Corporate Simulation (CS), part of the Accounting and Finance course academic curriculum. After describing the functioning process, objectives, and assessment model of CS, it was shown that from 2014/15 to 2019/20, the level of approval of CS was 94.8%. Also, from the results of the survey conducted with the students who completed CS, from 2007/08 to 2018/19, on a scale of 1 to 5, in options 4 and 5 (good and very good), the objectives weigh on average, 85.3%, and that, in the academic year 2019/20, the specific characteristics of functioning, as a consequence of COVID 19, did not cause changes in the trends of assessment and approval in CS. © 2022, IGI Global.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Presently, there are few population-level strategies to address SARS-CoV-2 infection except preventive measures such as vaccination. Micronutrient deficiency, particularly vitamin D and zinc deficiency, has been associated with dysregulated host responses, and may play an important role in COVID-19. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: We have designed a 2x2 factorial, randomised, double-blind, multi-centre placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the effect of vitamin D and zinc on COVID-19 outcomes in Maharashtra, India. COVID-19 positive individuals are recruited from hospitals in Mumbai and Pune. Participants are provided (1) vitamin D3 bolus (180 000 IU) maintained by daily dose of 2000 IU and/or (2) zinc gluconate (40 mg daily), versus placebo for 8 weeks. Participants undergo a detailed assessment at baseline and at 8 weeks, and are monitored daily in hospital or every 3 days after leaving the hospital to assess symptoms and other clinical measures. A final follow-up telephone call occurs 12 weeks post-enrolment to assess long-term outcomes. The primary outcome of the study is to time to recovery, defined as time to resolution of all of fever, cough and shortness of breath. Secondary outcomes include: duration of hospital stay, all-cause mortality, necessity of assisted ventilation, change in blood biomarker levels and individual symptoms duration. Participant recruitment commenced on April 2021. ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: Ethical approval was obtained from institutional ethical committees of all participating institutions. The study findings will be presented in peer-reviewed medical journals. Trial registration numbers: Nct04641195, ctri/2021/04/032593, hmsc (goi)-2021-0060.

ABSTRACT

Education is one of the most important pillars of our society, thus there is a constant need of adapting to new contexts. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted schools and demanded change in technological literacy. This case study, conducted in a European public school, aims at understanding the context and developing an intervention under the assessment of the pandemic’s impact on such organizations. Hence, a literature review was performed, comprising a framing of the current conditions and relevant constructs to cope with change. Examples of the last are reflexivity, psychological safety and adaptivity. This review led to the diagnosis and the intervention proposal development following Porras’ [23] and Kurt Lewin’s (1947) change models. The diagnosis encompassed the conduction of interviews and focus groups. Hence, several intervention proposals framed by the job demands and resources model by Bakker et al. (Annu Rev Organ Psych Organ Behav 1:389–411, 2014) were developed. All the proposals are presented in this chapter, as well as their desired effects. From the data gathering process and its following analysis, the needs of the school arose, and topics such as exhaustion, the perception of low digital skills, the inability of establishing barriers, lack of digital resources and technologies’ integration, as well as a weak internal communication were mentioned. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Sepsis is a common cause of morbidity and mortality with no gold standard diagnostic test for detecting sepsis. Blood cultures are a frequent diagnostic step but the results take at least 48 hours and timely recognition of infection and initiation of appropriate antibiotics remain crucial in the treatment of sepsis. Biomarkers thus come in handy for rapid diagnosis and risk stratification. Objectives: Primary objective: To assess the diagnostic and prognostic value of procalcitonin (PCT), interleukin-6 (IL-6), ferritin, and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in differentiating between Gram-negative and Gram-positive sepsis patients. Secondary objective: To determine the relationship between serum PCT, IL-6, ferritin, and CRP levels and isolated sepsis pathogens. Materials and methods: We are conducting a cross-sectional study for a period of 2 years on 360 adult patients admitted in an intensive care unit (ICU) of a tertiary care hospital with sepsis or septic shock. Our exclusion criteria are patients with burns, suspected or documented non-bacterial infections, viral hepatitis, iron overload states, and active COVID-19 infection. We are using convenience sampling. Demographic details of patients are collected. Blood is drawn for estimation of the four aforementioned biomarkers as well as body fluids of the patient based on clinical suspicion are sent for microbiological evaluation on admission to ICU before administration of antibiotics. Based on the culture reports, patients are classified as culture-positive or culture-negative sepsis and the biomarkers in each group are analyzed for diagnostic and prognostic accuracy. The primary outcome of the study is the survival or death of the patient while the secondary outcome is the number of days of ICU stay. During the time of submission, only 25 patients had been recruited and an interim analysis is being conducted. Results: During the time of submission, only 25 patients had been recruited and an interim analysis is being conducted. The mean age of our patients was 57.16 years. The study population was predominantly males (20 subjects) with ten subjects of urosepsis, three with pancreatitis, two with pneumonia, and the remaining ten had a miscellaneous diagnosis. The mean values of the inflammatory markers were as follows: PCT = 16.672 (±24.3495), CRP = 85.8428 (±62.1224), IL-6 = 610.268 (±723.3846), and ferritin = 625.0832 (±628.5289). The p value of the biomarkers is <0.00001 and is significant at p < 0.05. The following combinations of biomarkers were found to be statistically significant - PCT with IL-6 (p = 0.00018), PCT with ferritin (p = 0.00012), CRP with IL-6 (p = 0.00116), and CRP with ferritin (p = 0.00079). The sensitivity of CRP and IL-6 was 100% while specificity was highest for PCT at 50%. Eight of the subjects had Gram-negative sepsis. The mean days of hospitalization were 19.92 days. Eight of the subjects died contributing to a mortality rate of 3.2 per 10 subjects. Conclusion: The combination of biomarkers reflects different aspects of sepsis pathophysiology and would be feasible to incorporate as a point of care testing. The biomarker panel that would provide diagnostic information for the investigation of a patient with suspected sepsis earlier than cultures is PCT with IL-6 and ferritin.

ABSTRACT

Funding Acknowledgements Type of funding sources: None. Background The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on clinical practice, amounting to more emergency department and intensive care unit (ICU) admissions. Due to their frequent multiple comorbidities, management in the ICU is challenging. Early studies suggest that cardiac injury is frequent in hospitalized patients with COVID-19, and it is plausible that these patients have a higher risk of cardiac dysrhythmias. Purpose To determine the prevalence of dysrhythmias in ICU patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, identify major predictors and determine the impact on in-hospital mortality. Methods A retrospective study of 98 consecutive patients with COVID-19 Pneumonia admitted to the ICU of a tertiary hospital in 2020. The main outcome was dysrhythmias (including significant bradycardia, high/slow ventricular rate or new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) or atrial flutter, other supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation). Significant bradycardia was defined as heart rate lower than 40 or need of treatment. Sociodemographic variables and clinical data were retrieved for each patient, severity scores at admission (Apache II, SOFA and SAPS II), number of days on mechanical ventilation or high-flow oxygen and placement on Venovenous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) or prone position were recorded. Statistical comparison was made between groups, including logistic regression adjusting for confounding variables. Results The most frequent arrhythmia was significant sinus bradycardia (28, 28.5%) followed by high ventricular rate AF (14, 14.2%). Patients who had dysrhythmias were older (66.24 ± 10.13 vs 60.85 ± 12.69 years, p 0.024), more severe (SAPS II score 42.55 ± 11.08 vs 35.98 ± 11.26, p 0.006), had more atrial fibrillation (AF) (p 0.022), had higher maximum C-reactive protein (mCRP) (6.56 ± 2.68 vs 6.24 vs 2.86, p 0.009), were mechanically ventilated for a longer time (15.64 ± 13.18 vs 8.92 ± 8.85 days, p 0.004), had longer intubation time (14.52 ± 9.39 vs 8.70 ± 8.21 days, p 0.002) and had higher usage of dexamethasone (p 0.042) and prone position (p 0.016). When adjusted for confounding variables, prone was the most significant predictor (OR 2.800;95% CI 1.203-6.516) followed by use of dexamethasone (OR 2.484;95% CI 1.020-6.050). Days intubated, days on mechanical ventilation, age, mCRP and SAPS II on admission were also predictors of dysrhythmia. Regarding mortality, patients with arrhythmic events had a tendency for greater in-hospital death (OR 2.440;95% CI 0.950-6.310;p 0.065). Conclusions COVID-19 ICU patients are a subset of patients at risk of cardiac arrhythmias. Use of prone position was the main contributor to these events, but clinical history, severity and treatment may also play an important role. Efforts must be made to optimize ventilatory support and treatment in order to reduce the risk of dysrhythmias. Predictors of dysrhythmias

ABSTRACT

Context: The Database Systems (DS) subject is a significant subject in Computer Science and Engineer-ingrelated undergraduate programs, as it supplies knowledge and abilities required for professional practice within the software industry. Teaching DS principles, concepts, and practices and relating them to real-world scenarios is challenging, particularly in social isolation circumstances due to Covid-19. Moreover, teaching resources can pose additional setbacks for teachers and students who are unfamiliar with remote learning. Purpose: This study investigates the DS students' perception regarding the methodology and teaching practices adopted by the teacher during the social isolation period. Method: We conducted a survey with the DS subject students to investigate their perception regarding the teaching methodology adopted, the challenges, and their motivation during this period of social isolation. Results: Our findings revealed that most students have adequate study conditions, i.e., a suitable environment for studying at home and the necessary equipment to attend online classes and perform the subject's practical tasks. Moreover, 79% of the students felt motivated to study the subject remotely, and more than 74% of the students endorsed the teaching methodology adopted by the teacher.

ABSTRACT

At the beginning of 2020 we assisted to an enormous increase of remote working due to Covid-19 pandemic. Largest effects arise, the increase in flexible working has impact on how people use their home, shops, offices, enterprises. All questions about positive and negative implications cannot leave people's mind. In this ecosystem at any point employees will inevitably have to work with other people at some point, must interact with clients and customers, need to work with colleagues, managers, suppliers and build relationships with them. Changing mindset, it is not an easy task. Some companies are creating solutions with that we do not forget to maintain personal relationships between employees. This paper discuss that points and give a prototype, to try effectively tackle a problem. © 2022 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine whether high-flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) or noninvasive ventilator (NIV) can avoid invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) in COVID-19-related acute respiratory distress syndrome (ADRS), and the outcome predictors of these modalities. Design: Multicenter retrospective study conducted in 12 ICUs in Pune, India. Patients: Patients with COVID-19 pneumonia who had PaO2/FiO(2) ratio <150 and were treated with HFNO and/or NIV. Intervention: HFNO and/or NIV. Measurements: The primary outcome was to assess the need of IMV. Secondary outcomes were death at Day 28 and mortality rates in different treatment groups. Main results: Among 1,201 patients who met the inclusion criteria, 35.9% (431/1,201) were treated successfully with HFNO and/or NIV and did not require IMV. About 59.5% (714/1,201) patients needed IMV for the failure of HFNO and/or NIV. About 48.3, 61.6, and 63.6% of patients who were treated with HFNO, NIV, or both, respectively, needed IMV. The need of IMV was significantly lower in the HFNO group (p <0.001). The 28-day mortality was 44.9, 59.9, and 59.6% in the patients treated with HFNO, NIV, or both, respectively (p <0.001). On multivariate regression analysis, presence of any comorbidity, SpO(2) <90%, and presence of nonrespiratory organ dysfunction were independent and significant determinants of mortality (p <0.05). Conclusions: During COVID-19 pandemic surge, HFNO and/or NIV could successfully avoid IMV in 35.5% individuals with PO2/FiO(2) ratio <150. Those who needed IMV due to failure of HFNO or NIV had (87.5%) mortality.

ABSTRACT

Prevent and control healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) is a priority in healthcare assistance, not only due to present COVID-19 pandemic. Annually, around 3.2 million patients are affected by one of these infections and it is estimated that without controlling them, by 2050, 10 million more people could die every year, with especial relevance among elderly with infectious situations representing a third of mortality in people over 65 years old. Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in healthcare area have an important role in this panorama, by preparing students to be future professionals, stimulating them to have an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to today’s real-life challenges. A mixed-methods research was conducted, at European level (in Portugal, Finland, Poland and Spain), to facilitate learning of good practices on HAIs prevention and control while developing innovative solutions. 1475 participants were enrolled, from all partner HEI: 79 professors and mentors were interviewed (individual or focus group), 1326 final year nursing students made a self-report inventory (application of InovSafeCare Scale) and 70 students participated on focus group (agile piloting of the Model). The result of this research is a pedagogical model that mixes dimensions and methods that take nursing students closer to the demands of HAIs prevention and control and capacitates them to transfer knowledge to work settings with an innovative and entrepreneurial perspective – the InovSafeCare Model. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to ascertain the level of occupational stress before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, how it changed, and its association with health outcomes of hospital workers in the Recôncavo of Bahia, Brazil. A longitudinal study was conducted with 218 hospital workers over 18 years old. A semi-structured questionnaire was used for collecting sociodemographic, occupational, lifestyle, anthropometric, and health data. The main exposures were occupational stress, assessed through Job Content Questionnaire and classified according to the Demand-Control Model and reported shift work. Health outcomes considered were nutritional status assessed by Body Mass Index (BMI), Waist Circumference (WC), and Body Fat Percentage (BF%); health self-perception; and cardiovascular risk factors. We used McNemar chi-squared or Wilcoxon tests to compare levels of exposure and outcome variables before and during the pandemic, and odds ratios to evaluate associations between changes in occupational stress and shiftwork with health outcomes. During the pandemic, participants reported increased occupational stress and shift work, lower self-perceived health, and had higher BMI and cardiovascular risk factors, compared with before the pandemic. No association was observed between change in occupational stress and health outcomes. However, increased amount of shift work was related to increased BMI in the overall sample (OR 3.79, CI95% 1.40-10.30), and in health workers (OR 11.56; CI95% 2.57-52.00). These findings support calls to strengthen labour policies to ensure adequate working conditions for hospital workers in context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABSTRACT

The article discusses the first reactions of many distinguished commentators to the impact that the CoViD-19 pandemic had on people's religious life globally. Such acrossthe-board response is investigated against the background of Peter Sloterdijk's exemplary reinterpretation of the religious vertical impulse in terms of anthropotechnics and is found defective. A more nuanced and ambivalent account of secularization is offered in the end as a viable alternative to the standard thesis of the disenchantment of the world.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 virus outbreak led to the need of developing smart disinfection systems, not only to protect the people that usually frequent public spaces but also to protect those who have to subject themselves to the contaminated areas. In this paper it is developed a human detector smart sensor for autonomous disinfection mobile robot that use Ultra Violet C type light for the disinfection task and stops the disinfection system when a human is detected around the robot in all directions. UVC light is dangerous for humans and thus the need for a human detection system that will protect them by disabling the disinfection process, as soon as a person is detected. This system uses a Raspberry Pi Camera with a Single Shot Detector (SSD) Mobilenet neural network to identify and detect persons. It also has a FLIR 3.5 Thermal camera that measures temperatures that are used to detect humans when within a certain range of temperatures. The normal human skin temperature is the reference value for the range definition. The results show that the fusion of both sensors data improves the system performance, compared to when the sensors are used individually. One of the tests performed proves that the system is able to distinguish a person in a picture from a real person by fusing the thermal camera and the visible light camera data. The detection results validate the proposed system. © 2021, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, health care system was readjusted and thoracic cancer patients with COVID-19 were studied in international registries. In patients with malignant thoracic neoplasms the differential diagnosis is complex, due to the location of the disease and symptoms related to cancer. Age, smoking status, comorbidities, previous corticotherapy treatment, performance status and stage of thoracic malignancies have been described as prognostic factors. Some registries and series of COVID-19 in thoracic malignancy patients reported mortality rates of 26% (CCC-19), 32% (TERAVOLT), 39% (UKCCMP) and even 47% (Dutch Oncology COVID-19 Consortium). A national survey on the impact of COVID-19 in lung cancer patients' treatment has been presented by the Portuguese Lung Cancer Study Group. However, a national study of COVID-19 patients with thoracic malignancies has not been done. Objectives: To access the frequency and severity of COVID-19 in Portuguese patients with thoracic malignancies, and to study clinical manifestations, intensive care admission and factors associated with a worst outcome. Methods: LUNGCOVID is a multicenter national observational study. Patients with primary thoracic malignancy, age 18-years-old and SARS-CoV-2 infection diagnosed by reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction or antigenic test since March 2020, will be eligible. Clinicopathological characteristics will be accessed by reviewing medical records. The variables to be studied are: age, sex, performance status, smoking habits, presence of comorbidities, previous corticotherapy treatment, factors related to the underlying cancer disease (stage of the disease, histological type), treatments, previous chest radiotherapy, oncologic systemic treatment, COVID-19 symptoms, need of intensive care admission and survival.

ABSTRACT

Connective life has accelerated since 2020, when the covid-19 pandemic began, which contributed to intensify some digitization processes that have been underway for decades. This connective life also presents new challenges, such as surveillance capitalism, the attention economy, and contingent intellects, formed by powerful persuasive algorithms. In this context, the 147th edition of Chasqui is proposed as an Ibero-American transnational digital culture observatory. To do this, we have selected 10 articles that reveal significant networks, and in which user behaviors are studied;Ibero-American habits, uses and customs are mapped on social networks;Forms of organization in the consumption, production and circulation of content are described;techniques and content used to manipulate information and opinion are analyzed;describe and identify themselves in ways of spreading false news and hate speech;and new theoretical proposals are presented to understand Latin America through the analysis and reading of fields such as big data, machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, algorithms, or data analysis and visualization systems.

ABSTRACT

This text intends to shift the centrality of the debate about COVID-19 to the human condition post-pandemic. We use the concept of imitation as an axis (Tarde, 1978), in addition to other authors who contribute to the reflection on the "tragedies" generated by the new Coronavirus, based on the climate of insecurity and fear established in humanity and the economy. We propose a theoretical essay in which we use resources from the "sociological imagination", in the sense of prospecting the inversion of the established order and we present nine different and correlated arguments, as an analysis of the possible panorama that offers a hope in the context of use the direct and pronoun transitive verb "to hope", of political action, of longing, of seeking and contrary to the act of waiting.
