ABSTRACT

Objective: The current study aimed to describe the clinical characteristics of mild SARS-CoV-2 infected pregnant women with abnormal liver function (ALF), explore the association between ALF with maternal and fetal outcomes. Method(s): This retrospective analysis included 87 pregnant patients with mild SARS-CoV-2 infection admitted and treated from December 1, 2022, to 31, 2022 in the department of Obestircs at Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital. We evaluated patients for demographic and clinical features, laboratory parameters and pregnancy complications. Result(s): 27 Patients in this cohort had clinical presentations of ALF. Compared with the control group, the peripheral blood platelet (PLT), D-dimer quantitative determination (D-Dimer), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), total protein (TP), albumin (ALB), indirect bilirubin (DBIL), gamma- glutamyltranspeptidase (GGT) and total bile acid (TBA) showed significantly differences (p<0.05). 12 cases (44.44%) complicated with pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH), 14 cases (51.85%) complicated with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), 2 cases (7.4%) complicated with acute fatty liver during pregnancy (AFLP) and 5 cases (14.81%) complicated with postpartum hemorrhage in patients with abnormal LFT were significantly higher than those in the control group (p<0.05). Compared with the control group, the incidence of premature delivery (22.22%) and fetal distress (37.04%) in the experiment group were significantly higher (p<0.05), and the incidence of neonatal asphyxia was not significantly different (p>0.05). Conclusion(s): Pregnant women are generally susceptible to mild SARS-CoV-2 and may induce ALF. ALF is associated with increased risk of mother and infant. The maternal and infant outcomes of those who terminated pregnancy in time are acceptable. Therefore, pregnant women with COVID-19 who received antiviral treatment should be closely monitored for evaluating liver function and relevant indicators. The long-term outcomes in the future are worth to further study.Copyright © 2023

ABSTRACT

The structure of the presentation will be 1) Pandemic-Epidemiology 2) General Pandemic-Management 3) HRT and COVID 4) Different spectrum of menopausal symptoms (Europe/Asia) 5) Different risks lead to different HRT. 1) Pandemic-Epidemiology: SARS-COVID-19 has got to be a new disease, China was the first to suffer from the pandemic starting in December 2019 with spread all over the world. Diagnosis, treatment and protective measures have started in Europe in March 2020;up from autumn 2022 in Europe the pandemic changed to endemic, but protective measures still should be continued in risk patients like in hospitals and nursing homes. Rehabilitation will for long-time be an issue like treatment of "Post-" and "Long-COVID". China pursued a zero-COVID-policy until Dec 2022. The sudden stop of almost all measures led to a sharp increase in infections, which shows that the disease will remain a global risk. 2) General Pandemic-Management: Protective measures like vaccination, surgical masks, screening/testing, isolation management, travel/residence history in high-risk regions, education of patients and families had to be the first priority, ahead of other issues such as the management of menopause. 3) HRT and COVID: Already the first prelimary data assessed in Wuhan/China have shown that women with low estradiol-levels had more severe infections with COVID. An analysis of health records of 68,466 COVID-positive patients from 17 countries showed that the fatality risk for women > 50 years receiving HRT was reduced by more than 50% compared to those women not taking HRT (Seeland, 2020). Likewise from a case-control study analyzing the self-reported data of 1.6 million UK menopausal women through the COVID-Symptoms Study Smartphone application (control populations adjusted for age, body mass index, and smoking status) was concluded, that HRT not only can be used, but even can protect from COVID-infections and/or their sequelae (Costeira, 2021). 4) The different spectrum of menopausal symptoms (independent of COVID-infections) comparing data in Europe (showing more vasomotor symptoms) and China (more somatic symptoms) will be presented, including own data. 5) Different risks during HRT consequently lead to different use of HRT, especially more transdermal estrogen combined with progesterone in Europe due to much higher VTE-risk, but more management of the high bleeding-problems in China using individualized (mostly oral) estrogen/progestogen combinations.

ABSTRACT

In the context of the era of big data, the emergence of e-commerce platforms has brought many opportunities and risks. Due to the COVID-19, e-commerce has achieved unprecedented development, and e-commerce fraud has severely damaged the healthy economic environment. This paper uses the RUSBoost algorithm to build an e-commerce fraud risk prediction model, and verifies the predictive performance of the model through data experiments. The results show that it has a high accuracy rate for identifying e-commerce fraud. If the model is applied to e-commerce, the losses caused by ecommerce fraud could be avoided in time. At present, there are fewer e-commerce fraud risk prediction models and have a wide development prospection. © COPYRIGHT SPIE. Downloading of the is permitted for personal use only.

ABSTRACT

This article aims to analyze the China-Argentina health cooperation in the face of the COVID-19 health crisis from the perspective of multilevel governance. It has been shown that state and sub-state actors played a dominant role in the first cooperative stage, while non-state actors started to play an increasingly active and significant role in the second stage. Through health cooperation between the two nations, Argentina has managed to overcome some of the challenges posed by the pandemic and has improved its health governance capacity in facing the coronavirus. To cope with the second wave of the epidemic, these two countries' health cooperation needs to be strengthened at multiple levels.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: COVID 19 is a global pandemic that has stretched healthcare resources. We explored the shift in patient demographics and clinical management of systolic heart failure (HF) patients during the COVID 19 outbreak. Purpose: To examine the impact of COVID 19 on the hospitalization rates of decompensated systolic HF patients in a tertiary hospital in Asia and delineate differences in the clinical characteristics and management of these patients. Methods: Data was extracted from the admission registry for systolic HF patients admitted to the tertiary hospital from January to June 2019 (pre- COVID) and the corresponding time period in 2020 during the COVID outbreak. We compared the demographics, clinical management and outcomes of these patients. Results: There was a significant reduction in patients admitted for systolic HF during the COVID period, 174 (6.3%) compared to 240 (8.5%) pre- COVID (p=0.001). The baseline demographics were similar except for the age of patients admitted during the COVID 19 period, which were younger at 66.1±13.5 compared to 69.9±13.9 pre-COVID (p=0.007). The mean left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was lower during the COVID period (22.9±10.1% vs 24.9±10.1%;p=0.032). More patients during the COVID period were placed on mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (p=0.001) and SGLT2 inhibitors (p<0.001). For those with recurrent admission for systolic HF, the number for HF admissions in the preceding one year was lower during COVID period compared to pre-COVID (0.2±0.5 vs 0.5±1.0 readmissions, p<0.001). There was no COVID 19 infection among those admitted for systolic HF. The 30-day all-cause mortality and readmission rates were comparable between both groups. Cardiac related mortalities were higher during the COVID 19 period compared to the pre-COVID period (77.8% vs 100.0%, p=1.000). No difference was observed in the length of stay nor proportion of patients who required a higher level of care in high dependency or intensive care unit during the COVID outbreak. Those who were admitted during the COVID period were more likely first presentation of decompensated systolic HF, 119 (68.4%) compared to 135 (56.3%) pre-COVID (p=0.014). Conclusion: Similar to the existing publications, there was a reduction in patients admitted for HF during the COVID period. However, for those who were admitted, these patients were younger and had lower LVEF. Most of them were first diagnosed with systolic HF during the hospitalizations. For those who had previous history of systolic HF, they had a lower number of HF admissions in the preceding one year compared to those who were admitted during the pre-COVID period. There was no difference in the 30-day mortality and utilization of high dependency or intensive care unit during the COVID outbreak.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: Based on the latest epidemic situation and field experience, this study aims to explore the correlation of computed tomography (CT) stages and blood glucose level in patients with novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19). PATIENTS AND METHODS: The clinical data of first and multiple CT imaging re-examination and blood glucose levels from 62 confirmed cases of COVID-19 were collected for a retrospective analysis to determine the correlation between glucose level and CT-based staging. RESULTS: Of the 62 COVID-19 patients, 48 cases of early stage and 14 cases of advanced stage were found in the CT data of the first diagnosis. These 62 cases were currently under follow-up (17-32 days): 18 cases in early stage-resorption stage, 25 cases in early stage-advanced stage-resorption stage, 12 cases in advanced stage-resorption stage, 5 cases in early stage -advanced stage-severe stage-resorption stage, and 2 cases in advanced stage-severe stage-resorption stage. Among them, the CT of 14 patients with advanced stage at the first diagnosis showed multiple stage lesions (advanced stage + early stage) at the same time. Patients presented with statistically significant changes in blood glucose at early stage-resorption stage, early stage-advanced stage-resorption stage, advanced stage-resorption stage, and early stage-advanced stage-severe stage-resorption stage (p<0.05). However, no statistically significant alterations were observed in the glucose level of patients with advanced stage-severe stage-resorption stage (p>0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Alteration of blood glucose is positively correlated with CT-based staging of COVID-19. Blood glucose is of great value in clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 and in determining the stage and prognosis of this disease.
