ABSTRACT

Background and Aims: Due to COVID-19 pandemic, face to face clinics were suspended at Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley. This in turn increased long waiting period for patients. Also, patients were skeptical to attend face to face clinics due to COVID-19 pandemic.So, virtual clinics was initiated. Method(s): Prospective survey of patients who attended stroke/TIA virtual clinics in the span of 3 months. A total of 50 patients (Stroke/TIA) participated in this survey. All the patients were above the age of 18 years, consent was taken from all the patients who participated in the survey. Result(s): Nursing and care-home staff were extremely happy with virtual clinics as nursing team could also be present with the patients for their clinic appointments. Also, there was no need to book transport or arrange escort for the patients.Patients suggested to start video consultation clinics. 2% of the patients who were dissatisfied with the virtual clinics provided the feedback that they rather preferred the conventional face to face clinics over Virtual clinics.After carefully analysing the feedback given in the survey, we are planning to introduce video consultantion clinics for TIA patients. Conclusion(s): Majority of patients who attended Virtual TIA clinics were satisfied with this approach, as virtual clinics were convenient to adhere for the doctor's appointment, avoids travelling to hospital and saves waiting time in the waiting area at the outpatient's department. Based on the feedback provided by the patients in the survey we are introducing Attend Anywhere video consultation in our TIA clinics. (Figure Presented).

ABSTRACT

Background: Researchers have been perplexed by the diverse clinical symptoms of COVID-19 spikes, and its oral symptoms are not frequently documented. Objectives: To estimate the prevalence of orofacial symptoms associated with confirmed COVID-19 cases and to assess the oral health-related quality of life among these patients. Methods: After audio consent, a pre-tested structured questionnaire was used to gather data from COVID-19-confirmed patients, and cases from a tertiary dental care facility in Thiruvananthapuram were also included. Results: Out of 200 participants, 86 (43%) were females, and 114 (57%) were males. The mean age was 40 years, ranging from 10 to 75 years. It was found that loss of taste (111, 56%), dry mouth (54, 27%), oral ulceration (18, 9%), white discoloration (12, 6%), burning sensation (9, 4.5%), red discoloration (7, 3.5%), tooth mobility (4, 2%), osteomyelitis (3, 2%), mucormycosis (4, 2%) and gingival bleeding (1, 0.5%) were the orofacial symptoms present in the participants. Conclusion: The prevalence of orofacial symptoms was 68% in COVID-19 patients, with loss of taste, dry mouth, and oral ulcerations as predominant symptoms. The mean oral health impact profile (OHIP) value of the COVID patients who showed oral manifestations was 17.44, whereas for those who did not show oral manifestations, it was only 7.46. © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Medknow Publications.

ABSTRACT

Background: It is well known that COVID 19 infection affects multiple systems in the body. Reports have documented many changes in the hematopoietic system in the pathophysiology of the disease. Aim: The aim of the study was to find out the prevalence and any significant difference in routine haematological parameters on presentation in Paediatric and adult patients with COVID 19 infection. Methodology: We conducted a multicenter retrospective descriptive observational study and investigated the prevalence of haematological abnormalities at presentation of 1000 PCR swab confirmed COVID 19 infected randomly selected adult and Paediatric patients admitted to 3 tertiary hospital in Dubai. Data was gathered through their electronic medical records and all analysis was done using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences software (SPSS). Results: The prevalence of at least one abnormal haematological parameter was 95.1% (794/835) on first presentation to the hospital. After adjusting of age and gender the prevalence of any white cell abnormality was 34.7% (290/835) (5.7% leukopenia, 9.6% leucocytosis, 25.4% lymphopenia, 5.5% neutropenia, 16.4% had neutrophilia, 7.3% monocytosis, and 1.2% eosinopenia). A prevalence of 15.3% (128/835) anaemia, 9.5% (79/835) thrombocytopenia and 4.3% (36/ 835) thrombocytosis was also observed. The prevalence of other abnormal blood parameters: C reactive protein 69.5%(573/835), D dimer 57.5% (280/835), high LDH 52%(383/835), high ferritin 72.1%(452/835), high INR 5.1%(38/835), prolonged PT 32.2% (240/835), and prolonged APTT 35.6%(264/835). A significant difference in prevalence of these abnormalities was evident between adult and Paediatric population, these abnormalities were much more prevalent in adults but interestingly paediatric population tended to have higher incidence of neutropenia, eosinophilia and monocytosis (p<0.001). Conclusion: The effects of COVID 19 infection are different in adult and paediatric patients. Many mechanisms have been hypothesized for this observation. This study revealed another less studied and interesting variation in the manifestation among the two populations.

ABSTRACT

In early 2020, the corona virus disease (COVID-19) has become a global epidemic. The WHO announced the disease as a public health emergency of international importance (PHEIC), and the issue was considered a health emergency. Automated computed tomography (CD) detection of lung infections offers a tremendous opportunity to expand the traditional health approach to resolving COVID-19. But many problems with CT. Facing contaminated areas from fragments, which include greater variability in infectious properties and low-intensity comparison between infections and normal tissues. Moreover, by suppressing the project of an in-depth model, a lot of information cannot be collected over some time.
