ABSTRACT

Social isolation has been an important strategy to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, which has affected the practice of sports and physical exercise and has also had an impact on perception of variables such as self-esteem and subjective well-being (Positive and Negative Affect Schedule [PANAS], and life satisfaction). Even though these variables have a significant relation, they may also give rise to affect mediation, which is not conclusive in this pandemic era. For this reason, this research's objective is to compare those variables before and during confinement, in addition to analyzing the mediation effect within a structural model in SmartPLS. By conducting a quantitative, correlational, and comparative research, a sample of 200 sports and physical exercise students from a university located to the northeast of Mexico was obtained. Significant differences were found in variables such as self-esteem (pre-pandemic [M= 3.65;DE= .272] and during [M= 3.23;DE= .543];p< .001) and positive (pre-pandemic [M= 3.64;DE= .601] and during [M= 3.41;DE= .797];p< .05) and negative (pre-pandemic [M= 2.37;DE= .733] and during [M= 2.11;DE= .765];p< .01) affects before and during the pandemic, as well as a mediation effect of positive affect in the relation between self-esteem and life satisfaction (t= 3.772;p< .001). This is intended to contribute to the understanding of the pandemic effects on the relation between sports practice and positive psychology variables, perspective which has gained great relevance in the last years.

ABSTRACT

Ossifying fibromas are benign fibro-osseous neoplasms that affect the craniofacial and mandibular skeleton. Juvenile psamomatoid ossifying fibroma is a rare variant of ossifying fibroma, which can be locally aggressive, and with a high recurrence rate. We present the clinical case of a 15-year-old patient with a morbid history of hypothyroidism and hyperparathyroidism, who consulted for increased volume and displacement of teeth in the right maxilla. The histopathological result was consistent with juvenile psamomatoid ossifying fibroma. Owing to the hospital situation during the COVID-19 the treatment consisted of hemimaxillectomy with iliac crest autograft using digital planning. © 2022 SECOM CyC.

ABSTRACT

The preventive and compulsory social isolation established in Argentina due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic led families to look for alternatives to maintain the bond and communicate with their non-cohabitant relatives. One of these alternatives was the use of videochat. Videochat enables new ways of audiovisual communication (Ames et al., 2010;Ballagas et al., 2009;McClure & Barr, 2017) that could affect the interactions in which adults and children collaborate in the construction of different types of discourses. Narratives are one of the first and most relevant forms of discourse, it allows for the reconstruction and communication of one's experience and is one of the ways in which thought is configured. In this work, a case study was conducted of the narratives produced during videochat conversations of a four-year-old girl with non-cohabiting relatives. The aim was to characterize the interactions that help in the configuration of children's narratives during technology-mediated situations. The research question were: (a) how do technology-mediated interactions allow the child to narrate about past and future events and to create fictional narratives?;(b) how does the child participate in the construction of those narrative in the context of these technology-mediated situations? Five videos of videochat interaction belonging to a single four year old girl were selected from the corpus "Contextos naturales de interaccion en los hogares en los que los/ as ninos/as usan tempranamente tecnologia". This corpus gathers different technology-mediated interactions collected during daily activities in the home of children aged 0 to 6 years. First, 31 narratives in which the girl participated were identified. Subsequently, used the constant comparative method was used (Strauss & Corbin, 1998) as well as analysis tools developed within the framework of interactive sociolinguistics (Gumperz, 1982, 1984);also, concepts developed in previous research (Arrue et al., 2014;Labov, 1972;Rosemberg et al., 2010;Stein et al., 2020) were heuristically recovered to answer the research questions. Of the 31 narratives produced in the interactions, 14 were related to personal experience, 13 were of future events, and 4 were fiction narratives. Regarding the posed questions, results showed that children do in fact create personal, future and fictional narratives in technology-mediated interactions with adults. Technology also enables children to decide how much they want to participate in interactions: they can lead the narrative, or they can back off to a yes-or-no answer kind of participation. The child relies on the possibility to share visual information, beyond audio, to provide both events and context information. This interactive and multimodal aspect of videochats was also found to enable the girl to turn to present adults both to scaffold her narrative production and to resolve doubts about unknown words. Even though there are methodological limitations to this study, this first approach to narratives in technology-mediated interactions shows the richness that this type of interaction can have for the development of children's language.

ABSTRACT

Electric drives have been used in several applications, such as electric vehicles, industry 4.0, and robotics. Thus, it is mandatory to promote updated electric drive courses that allow students to design novel solutions in these engineering areas. However, traditional undergraduate courses that only cover theoretical aspects and do not allow students to interact and produce practical results through experimentation are insufficient today. The students are not exposed to educational innovation, so they have difficulties proposing original solutions. On the other hand, conventional theoretical and laboratory courses in which students follow specific directions for achieving predefined goals do not allow students to create novel solutions and integrate the innovation process as a standard methodology. Moreover, beginning in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced professors to implement digital tools and materials to continue education intensively. This proposed course presents an alternative to promote practical and theoretical knowledge in students. Besides, engineering students must create innovative solutions to increase the quality of life in rural and urban communities, which calls for novel experimental approaches. Electric drives are fundamental elements in electric systems and industrial processes proposed to save energy or control electric machines. In addition, industries urge specialized engineers who can tackle complex industrial problems. The proposed educational methodology can be implemented in manufacturing, agriculture, robotics, and aerospace. Hence, low-cost devices to validate the proposed solutions became used by students to achieve novel solutions using electric drives. This paper describes an undergraduate course called "Digital Control of Electric Machines" (electric drives) and its implementation of the Tec21 Educational Model of Tecnologico de Monterrey, V Model, MATLAB/ Simulink, low-cost hardware, and complex thinking. The content of the course begins with electric machine models and power electronics that allow students to move from the basic to the advanced industrial electric drive problems in a friendly manner. In addition, the V-model and Modelo Tec 21 are used as fundamental pillars of the leading innovative structure of the proposed course. The results showed that students mastered several soft and hard skills to accomplish complex design goals, including controlling an electric rapid prototype vehicle.

ABSTRACT

Diagnostic tests to detect the coronavirus allow the identification of the virus in addition to the antibodies generated by the body of the person who has previously been infected, so the objective of the research is to detect COVID-19 in diagnostic tests carried out in patients. It is a quantitative, descriptive experimental cross-sectional study, which was carried out with a total population of 560 patients from hospital centers. In its results, we observed that 83.4% (n=467) of patients were non-reactive to the Antigen Test and 66.8% (n=374) of patients were negative in the PCR test. In conclusion, the strengths of the COVID-19 detection tests should be complemented since it allows for an accurate and timely diagnosis of patients. © 2022 The Authors.

ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 and Acute kidney injury (AKI) are associated with increased mortality and worse kidney outcomes. Although vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 have decreased the rate COVID-19 morbimortality, the role of immune protection against SARS-CoV-2 in the setting of AKI has not been fully yielded Methods: Retrospective case-control study that included clinical and biochemical data of 412 (78 vaccinated and 334 non-vaccinated) patients with severe COVID-19. Cox regression analyses were used to evaluate the effect of the vaccine in mortality and AKI outcomes Results: The mean age of the patients was 55+/-15 years, 64% were women, the mean body mass index was 28+/-5 kg/m2, and median in-hospital stay was 10(6-16) days. The rate of mortality and AKI 3 was 29% vs 10% and 27% vs 13%, for unvaccinated and vaccinated patients, respectively. Cox proportional hazard ratios for survival and prevention of AKI are shown in table 1 Conclusion(s): The SARS-CoV-2 vaccine was independently associated with lower mortality and AKI progression in patients with severe COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

The transition from traditional teaching to virtual teaching in public institutions of higher education (PIHE) is a process that began with the first computers in the 20th century, which has been accelerated by the Covid 19 pandemic, forcing the PIHE to adopt new virtual learning environments for which the traditional educational model was not designed at the University of San Carlos de Guatemala (USAC). The global characteristics of the Covid 19 pandemic have affected USAC teachers, students, administrative and service workers, and authorities, who had to adapt various methodologies with the support of ICT to continue the educational process. The implementation and use of these technologies evidenced a digital divide both in cognitive processes and in the use and access of digital tools. The study addressed the trends of use and access to technology in three case studies at the campus of USAC in Guatemala City: Architecture, Humanities and Economic Sciences, with a sample of 2,128 students, who responded through a Google form survey instrument, interviews and a forum, from February to may 2020. The results show that the different socioeconomic levels affect the access and use of technology for the educational process, which is why it is necessary for PIHE to adopt policies and strategies that guarantee education.

ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 vaccination rates among U.S. young adults, particularly in communities of color, remain lower than other age groups. We conducted a qualitative, community-based participatory study to explore beliefs and attitudes about COVID-19 vaccines among young adults in Black/African American, Latinx, and Asian American or Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.Methods: We conducted six focus groups between June and August 2021. Participants were recruited by partnering with community-based organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Focus groups included Black/African American (N=13), Latinx (N=20), and AAPI (N=12) participants between 18 and 30 years of age. Emerging themes were identified using a modified Grounded Theory approach.Results: Prominent themes among all three racial-ethnic groups included mistrust in medical and government institutions, strong conviction about self-agency in health decision-making, and exposure to a thicket of contradictory information and misinformation in social media. Social benefit and a sense of familial and societal responsibility were often mentioned as reasons to get vaccinated. Young adult mistrust had a generational flavor fueled by anger about increasing inequity, the profit-orientation of pharmaceutical companies and health institutions, society's failure to rectify injustice, and pessimism about life prospects.Conclusion: Factors influencing vaccine readiness among Black/African American, Latinx, and AAPI young adults have a distinct generational and life-course texture. Outreach efforts should appeal to young adults' interest in family and social responsibility and the social benefits of vaccination, while being cognizant of the friction mandates pose for young adults' sense of self-agency. Efforts will be most effective coming from trusted messengers with a proven commitment to communities of color and health equity.

ABSTRACT

Feedback in the evaluation process has become more important in teaching practice since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The aim of the present study is to analyse the construct validity and reliability of the Sociofor-mative Analytical Rubric for the Assessment of Assertive Feedback (RASERA). This instrument was applied to a sample of 525 students from normal schools in Mexico. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis were used to analyse its construct validity. Its reliability was analysed using Cronbach’s alpha. The results of the first analysis revealed the formation of two factors;the first, we called execution of assertive feedback and the second, representativeness of assertive feedback. These two factors explained more than 65% of nificant factor loadings were found in them (FL > 0.50). For its part, the CFA revealed a good fit of this model (Ratio χ2 /df: 2.284;GFI: 0.909;RMSEA: 0.068;RMR: 0.035;CFI: 0.966;TLI: 0.955). For each factor, the average variance extracted, and the composite reliability were pertinent (AVE > 0.50 and CR > 0.70) and each item showed an adequate standardised factor load (SFL > 0.50). The reliability analysis gave optimal factor values (Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s omega > 0.85). We conclude that the RASERA instrument has adequate psychometric properties. © 2022, Universidad Internacional de la Rioja. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: The rate of pediatric patients diagnosed with Sars Cov 2 has increased since the early stages of the pandemic. Gastrointestinal symptoms have been demonstrated to be relatively common in pediatric COVID-19 patients as well as severe complications like PIMS syndrome because of the expression of ACE II in different areas of the digestive tract which serves as a receptor for their entry and infection in the body. During the last months of the omicron variant wave, we observed some gastrointestinal conditions in pediatric patients days after the resolution of the Sars Cov 2 acute infection period, sparking our interest to execute further research and analysis. OBJECTIVE(S): Describe the presence of functional gastrointestinal disorders as a post-covid infection sequel METHODS: We performed a descriptive, cross-sectional, observational, retrospective study, were we recollected the clinical and epidemiological data from the medical records of pediatric patients with a history of Sars cov-2 infection confirmed with positive PCR or antigen (sars cov-2) tests at Hospital Angeles Lomas, Mexico City. We included children from 6 months up to 16 years of age, who presented functional gastrointestinal disorders at a minimum 15 days after the infection that fulfilled Rome IV criteria. We evaluated the frequency and proportion of the qualitative variables;we obtained the arithmetic mean and the standard deviation for the quantitative variables with normal distribution RESULTS: We included data from 30 patients with confirmed covid 19 diseases by positive pcr or antigen (sars cov-2) tests, with a mean age 5.327 +/- 3.8 years Min: 7 months Max: 16 years, with a female predominance of 56.7% vs 43% male patients. During the acute infection by covid, 20% presented respiratory symptoms, 13.3% gastrointestinal symptoms, 36.7% only fever, 3.3% dysgeusia and 26.7% were asymptomatic. Adequate nutritional status was detected in 93% of the patients. The mean days the patients presented manifestations was 32 +/- 14 days, at a minimum 15 days, with a maximum of 63 days, being the most frequent functional gastrointestinal disorders: abdominal pain 90%, bloating 76%, vomit and reflux 33%, diarrhea 30%, constipation 26.7%. There was no weight loss in the patients, the appropriate treatment was given for each case. There was no complication in 90% of the patients, 10% presented acute abdominal pain and were transferred to the emergency room, 1 patient was diagnosed with appendicitis and 2 patients with mesenteric lymphadenitis. CONCLUSION Special attention must be paid to toddler and preschooler patients with Sars Cov 2 infection, regardless of the clinical manifestation in acute infections, mild or asymptomatic, functional gastrointestinal disorders may occur in the first 2 months after a positive PCR test. The ileum and the colon are places in which there is a greater expression of the ACE II, so when the enterocytes are invaded by SARS CoV-2, they may produce alterations in absorption and other mechanisms that could be the cause of these consequences. It is of vital importance that all pediatricians are aware of the consequences of the disease to prevent misdiagnosis.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Until June 11, 2020, 10.4% of the total positive cases of SARS-CoV-2 in Cuba corresponded to patients under 18 years of age. Clinical manifestations in children affected by SARS-CoV-2 are usually mild and few deaths occur compared to other age groups. Objective: Characterize from the clinical, epidemiological and immunological point of view the Cuban pediatric patients infected by SARS-CoV-2 until June 11, 2020. Methods: Observational, cross-sectional study in 137 pediatric patients infected with COVID-19, who were epidemiologically discharged. Results: 56.9 % of the patients presented asymptomatic form of the disease. Havana was the most affected province and the average age was 11.3 years. The most frequent symptoms were: fever, cough and diarrhea and occurred more frequently in patients with black skin (Odd Ratio = 3.40). Antibody concentrations for tetanus and Haemophilus influenzae type b provided protection in 92.7% to 100% of children, while for diphtheria 24.8% had no reliable protection. Of the symptomatic patients, 62.5% developed specific total antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. Conclusions: Patients in pediatric ages can contribute significantly to the transmission dynamics. Reliable protection for specific vaccines, the development of total antibodies to SAR-Cov-2, and general favorable prognosis without complications require continued research to identify biological and immunological differences between children and other age groups. © 2021, Editorial Ciencias Medicas.

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on various aspects of education across the world. The study outlined in this article was focused on the changing level of students' productivity in the Philippines at the inception and duration of the pandemic. Work sampling was employed to quantify and analyse the time spent by undergraduate industrial engineering students on their academic and personal activities as a measure of productivity during the pandemic. It was found that students exhibited productivity recovery, that is, the time they spent on academic activities after a year of remote learning was higher relative to during the emergency transition to remote learning at the beginning of the pandemic. The analysis of the multilevel categories of activities, both academic and personal, revealed that the productivity increase can be attributed to the adjustments made by the instructors taking advantage of synchronous classes, self-regulation and improved time management of students, and enforced student identity in a learning-from-home setup. © 2022 World Institute for Engineering and Technology Education.

ABSTRACT

The proper use of information technology (IT) in Universities during the Covid-19 pandemic has been of vital importance, so it is necessary to generate a methodological-technological proposal that serves as a guide to meet the needs of educational programs and users (students, teachers, and administrative staff) who work from home. The present research presents an exploratory, descriptive, correlational, and cross-sectional study composed of (1) review of the literature, (2) application of a survey, (3) study of information reliability (Cronbach's alpha), (4) study of correlations (Pearson’s bivariate) and (5) proposed solution. Generating an analysis of different Universities in Mexico and identifying how they are attending the educational processes and the technological tools they use. Based on the above, a methodological-technological proposal is presented based on resilience. It provides access to information and digitization of the educational processes of any university, which helps users adapt to the new hybrid environment achieving an acceptable level of digital maturity at all levels. In addition, it provides a set of technological options that the user can implement and select the most appropriate based on the needs of their academic processes, integrating academics, students, administrators, and those responsible for the computer centers through a single digital platform and with a single username and password. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Seroconversion after a two-dose course of mRNA COVID-19 vaccination in kidney transplant recipients ranges between 30% and 50% in different series. We previously demonstrated that a substantial proportion of patients (35%) without a humoral response, develop a cellular response after the second dose assessed by the ELISpot technique. We aim to study the evolution of both humoral and cellular responses in the same cohort before and 1 month after the administration of the third dose of 100 mcg of mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine. METHOD: Final population included 129 KTRs studied at four time-points: at baseline before the first dose, after the second dose (median 42 days) and before (203 days) and after (232 days) the third dose. At all the time-points, IgG and IgM were assessed as well as N- and S-protein specific ELISpot. The main outcome was seroconversion after the third dose. RESULTS: After the second dose, 26.7% of naïve cases experienced seroconversion. Before the third dose and in the absence of clinically evident COVID-19, this percentage increased to 61.9%. After the third dose, seroconversion was observed in 80.0% of patients. S-ELISpot positivity after the second dose was significantly associated with final seroconversion [OR (95% CI) 3.14 (1.10-8.96);P = .032], while transplantation < 1 year and previous kidney transplant were negatively associated with [OR (95% CI) 0.23 (0.07-0.80);P = .021 and OR (95% CI) 0.22 (0.06-0.78);P = .020, respectively). IgG after third dose were significantly higher (P < .001) in patients who maintained S-ELISpot positivity throughout the study (34.3%) and were correlated with S-spots after the second dose (r = 0.344, P < .001). CONCLUSION: A substantial proportion of KTRs vaccinated with mRNA-1273 develops a late seroconversion after two doses and only a fifth remained seronegative after a third. Cellular immunity seems to play a major role in the development of a final strong humoral response.

ABSTRACT

Developing a mechatronic system involves designing and implementing different subsystems involving multiple engineering areas, giving the system a high level of complexity. Thus, the design methodology is critical in developing multidisciplinary mechatronic products. The V-model is one of the most used methodologies by industry and academia. The three-part design structure facilitates rapid prototyping: system design, domain-specific design process, and system integration;these consider consumer requirements as the initial inputs. Nowadays, universities require dynamic design methodologies to develop new skills and competencies in their students. Hence, improvements of design methodologies must be adopted in various educational models, such as the Tec-21 model at Tecnologico de Monterrey. This educational model uses challenges in its pedagogical approach, actively involving students in current, relevant problem situations like the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper describes the development of a multitasking, modular, teleoperated robot named Robocov, a mechatronic V model product, as described in VDI guideline 2206, using a fuzzy cluster decision system to empower the methodology. This robot is a mobile teleoperated platform that can utilize various adaptable modules. Depending on the module, it can develop different activities and solve multiple tasks. Due to the current pandemic, the first developed modules were programmed with tasks focusing on sanitizing closed and open spaces and monitoring health standards and protocols.

ABSTRACT

Objective. To evaluate the operative capacity of nine serological rapid tests to detect the IgM/IgG antibodies response in serum from patients with SARS-CoV-2 in different clinical stages. Methods. A cross-sectional study of serological rapid tests was designed to compare the performance of the evaluated immunochromatographic tests for the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2. A total of 293 samples was used, including negatives, asymptomatic, and symptomatic serum samples. Results. The sensitivity of the evaluated tests was low and moderate in the groups of asymptomatic serum samples and the group of serums coming from patients with less than 11 days since the onset of the symptoms. The specificity for the anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies tests ranged between 86.5%-99% for IgM and 86.5%-99.5% for IgG. The sensitivity and the likelihood ratio were different according to the study groups. The usefulness of these tests is restricted to symptomatic patients and their sensitivity is greater than 85% after 11 days from the appearance of symptoms. Conclusions. Serological tests are not an adequate strategy for the identification of asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic patients. Serological rapid tests for the detection of specific anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies can be used as a diagnostic aid, but diagnosis must be confirmed by RT-PCR. Rapid tests should be reserved for patients with symptoms lasting more than 11 days.

ABSTRACT

Background: Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) exposed health personnel worldwide to high stress levels, which increases the phenomenon of burnout. Aim: To evaluate burnout, its risk, and protective factors in our health team, which has been exposed for months to greater work stress and changes in their usual tasks due to the pandemic. Material and Methods: An online survey including the Maslach Burnout Inventory Human Services Survey (MBI-HSS) and sociodemographic questions, was carried out among health care personnel who continued working during the pandemic. Results: A total of 209 surveys were obtained. Seventy six percent of respondents presented some degree of burnout in the time of the pandemic. Only one protective factor was observed: living with one or more children at home (Odds ratio (OR) 0.21, 95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.05 - 0.87;p = 0.03). Having night shifts (OR 2.72, 95% CI 1.02 - 7.28;p = 0.04), having more than six years in the workplace (OR 3.58, 95% CI 1.18 - 10.8;p = 0.023) and maintaining a regular or poor diet during the pandemic (OR 4.52, 95% CI 1.51-13.48;p < 0.01) were identified as risk factors. Conclusions: A high incidence of burnout was observed in the surveyed population. Living with one or more children in the home stands out as a protective factor and working night shifts, having more than 6 years in the workplace, and maintaining a poor diet as risk factors.
