ABSTRACT

In patients with acute ischemic stroke and COVID-19, the highest ratio between neutrophils and lymphocytes and increased serum levels of C-reactive protein, ferritin, D-dimer and fibrinogen are associated with poor neurological prognosis;75% of these patients die or survive with significant disability. At the moment, however, they cannot be established firm conclusions about the long-term evolution of these patients. Thus, the objective of this systematic review was to identify and correlate clinical and biochemical findings in patients with infection confirmed by SARS-CoV-2 and acute ischemic stroke.

ABSTRACT

There are currently 449,368,894 confirmed cases and 6,033,022 deaths from the coronavirus COVID- 19 outbreak as of March 08, 2022, leaving 443,335,872 survivors. The actual number of global COVID- 19 cases is likely to be two to three times higher than reported. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the novel virus responsible for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, resulting in unprecedented global health and economic crises with massive social impacts and massively strained health resources globally. COVID-19 is well recognized as a multi-organ disease with a broad spectrum of manifestations. During the early phases of the pandemic, patient advocacy groups, many members of which identify themselves as long COVID, have helped contribute to the recognition of post-acute COVID-19 Neurological Syndrome (PCNS), a syndrome characterized by persistent symptoms and delayed or long-term complications beyond four weeks from the onset of symptoms. This paper provides a comprehensive review of the current literature on post-acute COVID- 19 Neurological Syndrome, its pathophysiology, and its organ-specific sequelae. We explore the shared pathobiological profiles of stroke and COVID-19 involvement in the brain with a significant impact on the long-term care of both groups of survivors. The paper will discuss the role of universal biomarker, serial systemic immune-inflammatory indices (SSIIi) in the context of PCNS and potential implications in post-stroke neurological complications to introduce a systems biology approach to promote brain health for all globally.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Pregnancy itself is a stressful event that can be affected by the current outbreak of COVID-19. It is important to pay attention to the factors that reduce the anxiety caused by COVID-19 epidemics in pregnant women. Therefore, this study was performed with aim to determine the relationship between social support and anxiety caused by the epidemic of COVID-19 in pregnant women. Methods: This cross-sectional, correlational study was performed on 200 pregnant women in 2020. Sampling tools included a demographic and midwifery information questionnaire, Perceived Social Support-Family questionnaire (pss-fa), and a questionnaire for anxiety in Pregnant Women caused by COVID-19 epidemic. Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 16) and Pearson correlation coefficient, ANOVA and independent t-test, and single-variable linear regression. P<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: The prevalence of anxiety caused by COVID-19 epidemics was significantly different in the weak, moderate, and strong social support subgroups (P<0.001). The results of correlation test showed significant inverse relationship between anxiety caused by COVID-19 and the level of social support received by pregnant women (Pearson correlation coefficient=-0.211, p=0.003);this means that increasing the level of social support from the family reduces the level of anxiety caused by COVID-19 epidemics in pregnant women. Conclusion: Considering the inverse relationship between the rate of anxiety caused by COVID-19 epidemic and the level of social support received by pregnant women, it seems that supportive measures by the family and those around them are essential.

ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 is a new disease, so we don’t know what comes next. Since information on delayed symptoms is limited, this study was conducted to assess the frequency of delayed symptoms in patients with COVID-19. Methods: This follow-up cross-sectional study was conducted in a referral general hospital in Tehran, Iran from Feb to Apr 2020. Two hundred patients hospitalized for COVID-19 and were discharged were assessed for delayed symptoms 6 wk after discharge. Results: The mean age of the participants was 55.58±13.52, and 160 (80%) Of them were male. On admission to hospital, patients reported a mean of 5.63±2.88 symptoms per patient, range from 1 to 14 symptoms. Dyspnea was seen in 119 (59.5%) 0f them as the most frequent symptom. Then weakness, myalgia, and shivering were reported with a frequency of 111 (55.5%), 107 (53.5%), and 103 (51.5%), respectively. Six weeks after discharge reassessment was done. None of the patients was readmitted to the hospital. Ninety-four (42%) of them were symptom-free. Fatigue was the most frequent delayed symptom with a frequency of 39 (19.5%), and then dyspnea, weakness, and activity intolerance with a frequency of 37 (18.5%), 36 (18%), and 29 (14.5%) were reported, respectively. Conclusion: Fatigue, dyspnea, weakness, anxiety, and activity intolerance were most frequent delayed symptoms, respectively. Majority of patient was symptoms free and those with symptom, had mild to moderate symptoms. The importance of symptoms is not fully recognized.

ABSTRACT

Background and Aim: As a global threat, the COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge to psychological resilience. Systematic studies by examining and combining all related documents can provide a more complete description of the dimensions of the problem in society. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of various psychological disorders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: This is a systematic review. Studies using different combinations of keywords COVID-19, SARSCoV-2, pandemic, psychological disorders, mental health, psychological consequences were retrieved from different scientific databases Magiran, SID, Iranmedex, Elsevier, Pubmed, Science Direct, Scopus, Web of Science. These studies were published from December 1, 2019, to May 30, 2020. Twenty-eight studies out of 410 retrieved articles were evaluated and analyzed for data extraction. Results: The analysis of studies revealed that the different types of psychological disorders like stress, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, mental distress, schizophrenia, sleep disorders and sleep disturbances, vicarious traumatization, internet addiction on moderate to severe in public and medical personnel were recorded during COVID-19 crisis. The frontline health care workers such as nurses were more depressed, anxious, insomniac, and mentally disturbed. Women were more vulnerable to psychological disorders and sleep problems. Young people in the age group between 18 and 30 years old were more likely to experience generalized anxiety disorder and mental distress. Conclusion: COVID-19 has led to high prevalence and a wide range of psychological disorders among individuals and various groups in society, especially in medical personnel. It is essential to provide psychological assistance and training strategies to deal with a variety of these psychological disorders. © 2020 Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences.
