ABSTRACT

Purpose: One of the areas most affected by the sudden restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic was the education system and students. The aim of this study was to compare the fear of Covid-19, physical activity levels, mental health, academic motivation and sleep quality of students who received distance education and face-to-face education during the pandemic period. Method(s): In our study 93 university students who received distance education (age: 20.33+/- 1.82 years, height: 167.08+/-8.86 cm, weight: 61.41+/-12.08 kg) and 110 university students who received face-to-face education (age: 20.13+/-0.98 years, height: 167.62+/-8.12 cm, weight: 62.20+/-13.32 kg) were included. Fear of Covid-19 were evaluated by the Covid-19 Fear Scale, physical activity levels by International Physical Activity Questionnaire, mental healths by Depression Anxiety Stress Scale, academic motivations by Academic Motivation Scale, and sleep quality by the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index. Result(s): There was no difference between the two groups in the parameters of mental health (p=0.335), academic motivation (p=0.629) and sleep quality (p=0.230). It was observed that the fears of Covid-19 (p=0.001) and physical activity levels (p=0.023) of the students who received distance education were lower than those who received face-to-face education, and the sitting times (p=0.001) were higher. Conclusion(s): During the Covid-19 pandemic, it was observed that there was no difference in mental health, academic motivation and sleep quality between distance education and face-to- face education. However, we think that it is important to plan for reducing the sitting times and to increase their physical activity levels of students who receive distance education.Copyright © 2022 Turkish Physiotherapy Association.

ABSTRACT

Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a member of the herpes virus family and is the causative agent of chickenpox and shingles. While chickenpox, which is the primary infection, is mostly seen in childhood, shingles is located latently in the dorsal root sensory ganglia and cranial nerve ganglia, causing recurrent attacks in adulthood. Shingles may rarely present with neurological complications such as encephalitis. Many diseases are seen in the coexistence of Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) due to the pandemic. In this case report, it was aimed to draw attention to the ophthalmic varicella zoster virus infection with a different clinical onset accompanied by COVID-19 who presented with the clinic of encephalitis.

ABSTRACT

Today, when sports have become a very important sector for the economy, football, which is one of the favorite elements of the sports sector, has a very large financial position among other sports branches. Many different organizations such as UEFA also contributed to this position. In this study, the effect of the Covid-19 epidemic, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020, on football clubs was analyzed through the financial statements of football clubs. In the research, the ratio analysis method was applied through the financial statements of the three football clubs in the category of UEFA champions league leaders as of 5 May 2021 and the football companies traded in the BIST for the periods 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. As a result, it has been revealed that all clubs were affected negatively compared to the pre-pandemic period, but the three clubs, which are UEFA leaders, were less affected by the negative effects of the pandemic due to their strong financial resources and sporting successes. In the evaluation of the research, it has been revealed that Besiktas is the club with the best debt-paying power among the clubs in Turkey. It was evaluated that the net working capital of the other three clubs was negative. It is understood that the three clubs, which are the ranking leaders in 2021, have strong financial positions that do not differ much from each other. It is another result that the solvency and resource structures of Turkish football clubs and UEFA ranking leaders are far from each other. This situation is generally;It can be attributed to sportive success, the difference in the income balance and the increase in the exchange rate in our country.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The global COVID-19 pandemic and new variants continue to seriously threaten society. In this study;It was aimed to investigate surveillance of SARS CoV-2 and other respiratory viruses in respiratory tract samples in the winter season of 2020-2021 in Sakarya province. Material and Method: The study was carried out at Sakarya Training and Research Hospital between 2020-2021. e study was carried out with respiratory tract samples (Nasopharyngeal swab) stored in the laboratory. Clinical samples included in study were stored in a Bio-SpeedyRvNATRtransfer tube (Bioeksen,Turkey) and no extraction was performed in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. All analyzes were recorded on BIO-RAD CFX-96C1000 Touch Real-time system device using Diagnovital influenza A/B, SARS CoV-2, RSV multiplex Real Time PCR amplification kit. Results: Of the 200 patients diagnosed with URTI/LRTI, 54.5% were male and 45.5% female. e most common clinical symptoms;sore throat 74%, cough 73.5%, fatigue 71%, fever 57%, runny nose 56%, headache 48.5%, sneezing 41.5%, loss of smell / taste 39.5%, diarrhea 36%, dyspnea was 31.5% and myalgia was 23.5%. PCR positivity rates of samples were analyzed as 28.5% for SARS COV-2 and 1.5% for RSV, respectively. PCR positivity for influenza A/B was not defined in the study. Considering the statistical significance between PCR results and COVID-19 symptoms in patients;symptoms of dyspnea (n=63), fever(n= 62) and sneezing(n=56), respectively, were statistically significant(p<0.05). Conclusion: Due to the circumstances, only three main viral agents could be investigated in the study. RSV was frequently identified as an important factor in pediatric patients, whereas influenza-which may be related to social and individual measures (mask,distance,hygiene)- was not detected in any sample. More comprehensive scientific studies are needed to support the data.

ABSTRACT

Aim: Data on the outpatient follow-up of COVID-19 cases is still scarce. Also, the significance of the ROX index in decision-making for hospitalization in the ambulatory COVID-19 cases remains unknown. The aim of this study is to determine the general characteristics of COVID-19 patients treated as outpatients and to investigate whether the ROX index is applicable in hospitalization decisions. Material(s) and Method(s): This retrospective cohort study was conducted in confirmed adult COVID-19 cases between 15 October 2020 and 01 March 2021. A total of 5240 confirmed COVID-19 patients were included in the present study. Factors affecting hospitalization were investigated. Result(s): The study population was divided into two groups as those who require hospitalization (n=672) and those who did not (n=4568). The number of male patients and the mean age of the patients were significantly higher in hospitalized patients group (p=0.046, p<0.001). ROX index that was calculated at the home visit on the third day of disease was found significantly lower in the group of hospitalized patients (p<0.001). There was a significant correlation between ROX index and inflammatory biomarkers in the present study (p<0.001). The ROX index was found the most accurate parameter for decision-making for hospitalization in ambulatory COVID-19 patients (AUC=0.794 CI=0.773-0.814, p<0.001). Discussion(s): The ROX index can be a useful and objective clinical tool for decision making for hospitalization in the ambulatory COVID-19 cases.Copyright © 2022, Derman Medical Publishing.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The majority of the patients with COVID-19 are followed ambulatory. Determination of prognostic factors of mortality in risky groups is essential to improve patient management. The aim of this study is to describe the clinical presentation in patients over 65 years of age with COVID-19 who are followed up at home by a physician and provide insights into the initial prognostic factors in this distinctive population. Material(s) and Method(s): This is a retrospective and observational study. Clinical records of the patients aged over 65 years who were visited by the filiation team, including a physician at home, due to the diagnosis of COVID-19 disease within 2 months were reviewed. Factors affecting mortality were examined. Result(s): Our study included 51 deceased (mean age: 75,1+/-9,0 years, 40,2% males), and 102 patients with COVID-19 who survived (mean age: 73,0+/-6,9 years, 68,6% male). Platelet count ( < 150.000, OR 7,26, p=0,001), CRP level ( < 4, OR 4,55, p=0,02), albumin level ( OR 3,24, p=0,02), and Troponin I level (OR 0,03, p=0,02) were the strongest predictors for death. When propensity score matching was applied, gender (male, OR 7,14, p=0,02) and platelet count (< 150.000, OR 5,34, p=0,02) were the strongest predictors. Discussion(s): Elderly COVID-19 patients have a high mortality rate. An easily measurable and accessible platelet count may be a predictor of a bad outcome. Close follow-up and timely treatment may significantly reduce mortality in high-risk elderly patients under.Copyright © 2022, Derman Medical Publishing. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Aim: SARS CoV-2 transmission in healthcare personnel was first reported on January 20, 2020. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anxiety levels experienced by healthcare personnel in Turkey during the COVID-19 pandemic and the factors affecting these levels. Material(s) and Method(s): A survey investigating sociodemographic features and examining anxiety levels was conducted among approximately 1000 healthcare personnel who were expected to take active roles in the pandemic across Turkey. The survey was conducted in three stages: before the pandemic spread to Turkey, at the beginning of the pandemic and when the pandemic became prominent. A logistic regression analysis was performed to determine the factors affecting anxiety and predictors of anxiety levels. Result(s): In the first survey, always (odds ratio, 15.781;p<0.01) and often (odds ratio, 5.365;p<0.05) media use, in the second survey media use (p<0.05) and profession (odds ratio, 0.021;p<0.05) and in the third survey, marital status (odds ratio, 17.716;p<0.01) and gender (odds ratio, 4.431;p<0.05) were determined as the predictors of anxiety related to COVID-19. Discussion(s): As a result of this study, healthcare personnel groups were defined (women, nurses, married people) who need special intervention and support to provide spiritual comfort when working on the front line in the fight against COVID-19. Further comprehensive studies are needed of the extent of psychological support required by healthcare personnel and to whom and how this support should be provided.Copyright © 2022, Derman Medical Publishing.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Whether beach chair position can improve pulmonary compliance in mechanically ventilated subjects with Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is unclear. This study aimed to investigate the impact of beach chair position on pulmonary compliance and oxygenation in mechanically ventilated patients with COVID-19. Material(s) and Method(s): Forty-four COVID-19 subjects admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) of our institute who receive invasive mechanical ventilation were enrolled in this observational study. Patients were initially placed in supine position. Following a couple of hours patients were then placed in beach-chair position (head of bed elevated to 30 degrees) at least 16 hours a day. Data from mechanical ventilator was recorded hourly in each position. Total compliance was defined as tidal volume (VT, milliliters) divided by the difference between plateau pressure (cm H2O) and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP, cm H2O) Blood gas analysis was performed bi-hourly. Mean values were taken for statistical analysis. The difference in lung compliance, airway resistance, and blood gas analysis between supine and beach chair position was the primary outcome measure of this study. Result(s): Positioning patients form supine to beach-chair led to a significant improvement in lung compliance (29.68+/-10.42 ml/cm H2O vs. 33.96+/-11.71 ml/cm H2O, p<0.001), reduction in airway resistance (17.51+/-8.44 H2O/L/sc vs. 16.73+/-8.06 H2O/L/sc, p<0.001) and led to a significant decline in plateau pressure (30.82+/-5.94 cm H2O vs. 29.98+/-5.68 cm H2O, p=0.001). Moreover a significant improvement in PaO2 was observed following positioning from supine to beach-chair (67.93+/-20.29 mm Hg vs. 87.83+/-27.33 mm Hg, p<0.001). Conclusion(s): Compared to supine position, beach chair positioning improves lung compliance and oxygenation in COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) who receive invasive mechanical ventilation.

ABSTRACT

"Background: The aim is to investigate anxiety prevalence among the healthcare workers during COVID-19 pandemic and the also relationship of ""significant clinical anxiety"" with coping styles and the relatedfactors. Subjects and methods: An online questionnaire was performed to evaluate the anxiety responses of544 healthcare workers, the adopted coping styles and the related factors during COVID-19 pandemic. The questionnaire included the subsections of sociodemographic data, other clinical data and the items on exposure to social media, Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7) Scale and Coping Styles Scale Brief Form. Result(s): Minimal, mild, moderate and severe anxiety were present in 214 (39.3%), 191 (35.1%), 95 (17.5%) and 44 (8.1%) participants, respectively. GAD-7 score was >10 in 139(25.6%) of the participants indicating ""significant clinical anxiety"". Being female and a nurse were associated with significant clinical anxiety. In addition, theparameters such as ""concern about COVID-19, concern about infect COVID-19 to relatives, unwillingness to work, frequency of social media use about COVID-19, sleep disturbances and experiencing somatic symptoms"" were observed to be extremely significantly more common in the healthcare workers with ""significant clinical anxiety"" than those without that mental condition. The regression analysis revealed that higher adoption of using emotional social support, one of the emotional focused coping styles and behavioral disengagement, one of the ineffektive focused coping styles are considered to be predictor of significant clinical anxiety. Whereas, positive reinterpretation, one of the emotional focused coping styles was a predictor in reduction of significant clinical anxiety. Also more frequent exposure to social media and sleep disturbances were the predictors of significant clinical anxiety in the healthcare staff. Conclusion(s): Our results have emphasized the factors that should be taken into account and application of coping styles that may be functional in protecting mental health of the healthcare workers in their struggle against a huge disaster affecting worldwide societies.

ABSTRACT

Hydatid cyst is an infection caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus, which is seen endemic in animal husbandry areas. Due to the heavy burden on physicians during the pandemics, diseases other than COVID-19 took a back seat during the differential diagnosis of patients. Hydatid cyst is located in the bone at a rate of 1-4%. The symptoms and imaging features of the cyst located in the bone are not specific, thus they are less likely to be considered in the differential diagnosis of extremity lesions. The absence of a specific clinical picture and the lack of high sensitivity of the indirect hemagglutination test bring radiological evaluations to the fore in diagnosis. In this case report, we shared diagnostic and treatment process of a patient-who was first admitted to the hospital with edema, pain and fever in the leg, was diagnosed with multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) later diagnosed hydatid cyst with lung and bone involvement.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which started in China in December 2019 and spread all over the world, is more progressive in patients who are elderly and with chronic diseases. Especially, kidney involvement affects the survival of patients. In this study, we analysed COVID-19 patients who developed acute kidney injury treated in our unit, retrospectively. METHOD: The clinical and laboratory data of 610 patients who were hospitalized due to COVID-19 pandemic between 1 June 2020 and 30 June 2021 in the intensive care and other clinics of our hospital were evaluated from the records, retrospectively. A total of 140 patients were diagnosed with AKI according to the criteria of Kidney Disease Global Outcomes (KDIGO). The patients were divided into two groups as KDIGO stages 1 and 2 and 3. RESULTS: The median age in both groups was 70 (35-92) and 73 (35-90) years. Approximately 70% of them were >65 years old. Almost all of the patients had hypertension. Most of the patients were using angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inh) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) (84%). AKI was present at the time of admission (61.9%) in the KDIGO 1 group and at the time of hospitalization (64.3%) in the KDIGO 2, 3 groups. The mortality rate was higher in stage 2-3 AKI patients (35.7%). Ferritin and fibrinogen levels were high in the KDIGO 2, 3 group, while lymphocyte levels were low. CONCLUSION: AKI can be seen at the time of admission and during treatment in patients who are hospitalized and treated due to COVID-19. COVID-19 is more mortal in patients with advanced AKI.

ABSTRACT

The pandemic caused people to spend more time in quarantine spaces (living spaces) than ever before and continuously interact with that space. With the emphasis that architectural designs affect subjective human experiences, it has been revealed by scientific studies that people need spaces that are intertwined with nature with gardens and terraces during periods like this. While these studies refer to the spatial configurations that will make individuals feel good psychologically, they also mention the buildings’ features such as their location, size, space quality, and comfort content. The main aim of running this paper is to identify the emotional state changes that occur in individuals during the quarantine period and to use these determinations in designs within the framework of the concept of “pandemic space,” a concept that emerged after the pandemic started. Seven hypotheses have been developed in this context. As method, a questionnaire consisting of 39 items designed to measure individuals’ emotional state changes was chosen. The meaningfulness of the hypotheses was questioned using the statistical values obtained as a result of the data analysis of the data collected from 1500 people. As a result of the study, several design approaches to pandemic spaces were put forward by trying to interpret this meaningfulness in terms of space. © International Journal of Sustainable Building Technology and Urban Development.

ABSTRACT

Study Objectives: This study aimed to examine the effects of university students’ perceptions of coronavirus anxiety on their level of socialization through sports. For this purpose, a total of 284 students, 205 male, 79 female, students studying at Mehmet Akif Ersoy University Faculty of Sports Sciences in the fall semester of the 2021-2022 academic year constitute the universe of the study. Among the students who constitute the population of the study, 114 students are studying in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Teaching, 8 in the Department of Sports Management, and 162 in the Department of Coaching Education. Methods: In the analysis of the study data, descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation, frequency, and percentage values were examined. Test of normality was examined first to determine whether parametric analyzes will be performed. Results: When the socialization levels of university students through sports were evaluated according to age groups, the level of socialization through sports of students in the 21-22 age group is significantly higher than the level of socialization through sports of the students in the 18-22 age group. It was determined that the levels of socialization through sports of the students studying in the coaching education department were significantly higher than the levels of socialization through sports of the students studying in the physical education and sports teaching department. Conclusion: In the correlation analysis, it was determined that there was a very weak negative correlation between the coronavirus anxiety and the sports and socialization.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND AND AIM: To reveal the possible role of pannexin-1 in the molecular mechanism of the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) disease by evaluating the level of pannexin-1 in intensive care unit (ICU) patients, non-ICU patients and healthy controls. METHODS: 27 healthy controls and 63 COVID-19 patients who applied to Sivas Numune Hospital were included in the study. of the COVID-19 patients, 33 were IC patients. 30 were non-ICU and pannexin-1 levels were determined using the enzyme-labeled immunosorbent assay (ELISA). C-reactive protein (CRP), ferritin, lymphocyte count and neutrophil count values and some clinical information of the patients were obtained retrospectively. RESULTS: Pannexin-1 levels in healthy control, non-ICU patients and ICU patients were 1.76 ± 0.39, 1.78 ± 0.39, and 1.68 ± 0.42 ng/mL (p = 0.594), respectively. Pannexin-1 levels were found to be 1.65±0.39 and 1.72±0.46 ng/ mL, respectively, in patients discharged from intensive care units and those who died (p = 0.630). However, higher CRP (p<0.0001), ferritin (p<0.0001) and NLR (p<0.0001) levels were found in the patients compared to the control group. We determined higher neutrophil lymphocyte ratio in mortal cases (p<0.015). CONCLUSIONS: Since there was no statistically significant difference between groups, we think that the pannexin-1 has not any role in the molecular mechanism of COVID-19. However, when the number of patients in our study is taken into account, our results studies should be supported with other studies involving larger number of patients.
