ABSTRACT

Introduction: Corona virus disease has several dermatological symptoms. Telogen effluvium is one of them. The present study presents a case series of post COVID Telogen effluvium from Central India region. Material and Method: This retrospective observational study included 72 patients (61 females & 11males), aged 29 to 62 years (median 49 yrs). The patient’s demography, history of hair fall, signs and symptoms, co morbidities and the treatment received for COVID-19 infection, Psychological perceived stress score, triggering factors for Telogen effluvium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and Ferritin levels were recorded & analysed. Result: The included patients were suffering from at least one co morbidity. Thirty patients had severe COVID-19 infection and were hospitalized. Psychological perceived stress score was low (12) in two, moderate (16-24) in twenty and high (29-38) in fifty patients. Vitamin B12 was low in twelve and Ferritin in ten patients. Seventy patients (97.2%) had positive hair pull test and 69 (95.8 %) had diffuse loss of hair. Discussion: Post covid Telogen effluvium was seen generally in females, and in middle aged. Most, 70/72 had moderate to severe psychological stress, Psychological perceived stress score was more than 16. Patients reported 2.2 to 6 months (median 3.5 months) after COVID-19 infection. Most 69 (95.8%) had diffuse hair loss. Post Covid patients may have several triggering factors for Telogen effluvium like psychological stress, nutritional deficiency or the drugs (heparin). Conclusion: Post Covid Telogen effluvium could be triggered by psychological stress, nutritional deficiencies (Vitamin B12, Iron) or drugs (heparin). Such cases could be managed by identification of triggering factors, proper counselling, high protein diet with vitamin supplementation.

ABSTRACT

The world is witnessing the COVID-19 pandemic, which originated in the city of Wuhan, China, and has quickly spread to the whole world, with many cases having been reported in India as well. The healthcare system is going through unprecedented load on its resources while the available infrastructure is inadequate.COVID-19 samples are being tested at a massive scale and even small optimizations at this scale can save time, huge amounts of money, and resources. Particularly, the manual approach or even baseline greedy approach being used to allocate COVID-19 samples to medical labs across a state can lead to underutilization of resources. Hence, this work proposes a system to optimize the problem of allocation of medical samples to medical testing laboratories with high efficiency and minimal economic penalty. We use the Mixed Integer Programming (MIP) Model using high-performance MIP based solvers for custom applications by providing a tight integration with the branch-and-cut algorithms of the supported solvers to improve the results compared to baseline greedy approach. The system provides a transportation schedule optimized with respect to capacity of different labs and COVID-19 cases across the state of Karnataka. We tested the model on various datasets and observed significant improvement over the baseline greedy model.

ABSTRACT

The recent emerging coronavirus as novel corona virus (2019‐nCoV) formed viral pneumonia based emergency not only in Wuhan but also Europe, Iran, North Korea, India, and many more countries. WHO has already declared this situation as pandemic of corona virus. The world has around twenty-four lakhs cases in the whole world with around one and half lakhs deaths as on 20 April 2020. The corona virus is the family member of Nidovirales, which occur in human body from animal-human interaction. Here, we deliver the basics of corona virus and illustrate the social impact of this emergency. The review will aid the knowledge of CoV with their family and understand the person for healthy life. Here we study the Indian Tweets to determine the people’s emphasis on emerged Novel Coronaviruses (COVID-19), also compute the comparative tweets as concern of corona virus especially for Indian capital region for last six months January to June 2020 and January to March 2021 and find out the tactics of tweets for peoples concern about it. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

Cases of mental health issues are increasing continuously and have sped up due to COVID-19. There are high chances of developing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and dementia after 2–3 months of COVID-19 diagnosis. In this paper, a review and meta-analysis of machine intelligence approaches—namely, machine learning, deep learning (deep learning with hybrid boosting), and machine vision methods—for mental health issues and depression detection were presented. Meta-analysis was performed in four parts. The first part focused on the publication trends, criteria for inclusion and exclusion, and the current methodological scenario. The second part was intended for the methods and their advantages and limitations. It covered mental health issues and depression detection techniques along with the challenges. The third part focused on the discussion and applicability of datasets. The fourth part focused on the complete analysis and discussion along with suggestive measures;moreover, it covered the overall analysis, including the methodological impact, result impact, current trends, and some suggestions based on the limitations and challenges. © The Authors.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Thrombocytopenia is a rare complication of renal replacement therapy with most of the cases reported in intermittent hemodialysis patients. There is limited data regarding the incidence of thrombocytopenia caused by continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). We report a case of thrombocytopenia in patient treated with CRRT for severe AKI from COVID-19 sepsis unrelated to heparin. Case Description: A 73-year female with history of type 2 diabetes mellitus was admitted for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pneumonia. Patient developed acute hypoxic respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation despite treatment with hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and convalescent plasma. Hospital course was complicated by septic shock and acute kidney injury with serum creatinine rising from a baseline of 0.8 mg/dl. Continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD) without any anticoagulation was initiated due to severe fluid overload. Significant thrombocytopenia below 50,000/mm3 was noted 2 days after CVVHD treatment. Patient received multiple antibiotics and heparin drip before CVVHD and platelet counts were above 150,000/ mm3. Heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) was ruled out with negative serotonin release assay and platelet counts remain low despite the discontinuation of all potential agents. Disseminated intravascular coagulopathy was excluded based on coagulation tests. Platelet counts finally went up to 160,000/mm3 on subsequent CVVHD holidays and again dropped to 70,000/mm3 after CVVHD was resumed. Discussion: The rate of rise in platelet count more than 150,000/mm3 in 2 days after cessation of CVVHD supports the diagnosis of thrombocytopenia caused by CVVHD. Although the exact mechanisms remain unclear, previous studies suggested that the mechanical destruction of platelets by the hemofilter or allergic reaction to dialyzer membrane as some of the reasons. Some studies have found that severe decline (more than 50%) in platelet count was associated with increased mortality and decreased rate of renal recovery. Thrombocytopenia on CVVHD unrelated to HIT is an under-acknowledged complication. Understanding the multiple etiologies of thrombocytopenia will help prevent the excessive use of blood products, fluid overload state and the potential clotting issue of CVVHD due to transfusion.

ABSTRACT

Agnihotra, the basic healing fire of HOMA Therapy, is a small fire prepared in a copper pyramid exactly at sunrise and sunset each day. Agnihotra can neutralize the effects of pollution on plants, animals and human beings and at the same time give nourishment. As this is about Covid-19, a threat to all of humanity, and Agnihotra may be a means to alleviate the ramifications. Keywords: Agnihotra, copper pyramid, Mantra, Rice, Dried cow dung, Ghee.
