ABSTRACT

Objective: To establish the diagnostic validity of the CALL score as a predictor of mortality in patients with severe COVID-19 in the Intensive Care Unit of the Trujillo Regional Teaching Hospital from April 2020 to July 2021. Material and methods: An analytical, retrospective study was carried out, in which 177 patients with severe COVID-19 admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Regional Teaching Hospital of Trujillo were included, according to selection criteria, the CALL score was calculated for each one and was associated with the mortality found;applying the statistical chi 2 test;Subsequently, a multivariate regression analysis was performed to identify risk factors associated with mortality. In turn, the AUROC (area under the ROC curve) was used to establish the predictive performance of the CALL score.

ABSTRACT

Background: Invasive mechanical ventilation as a therapeutic strategy is not without complications. It is imperative to have protective ventilation parameters in those patients who are subjected to it. We aim to demonstrate whether mechanical power as a ventilatory parameter has prognostic validity for mortality in critically ill patients with prolonged invasive mechanical ventilation. Material and Methods: An analytical cross-sectional study was carried out of critically ill patients on prolonged invasive mechanical ventilation due to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome due to COVID-19 who were admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Hospital Regional de Trujillo during the March 2020 to March 2021 period.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The COVID-19 disease is complicated by severe acute respiratory syndrome (ARDS), which is considered the main cause of mortality within intensive care units, despite providing early and optimal ventilatory support. However, it is necessary to identify the factors associated with mortality in these patients.

ABSTRACT

Introduction. We live in a globalized world that is kept connected through the internet. Determining the veracity of the information we receive is difficult, even more so in that related to health. The internet is one of the most popular sources for the search for health-related information and this behavior increases in the context of epidemiological outbreaks. In the context of the current pandemic, an increase in anxiety about health issues has been found, the main concern being being infected by SARS-CoV-2. Search strategy: A search was carried out in the PubMed database of all articles published up to June 30, 2020. The search for terms included the keywords suggested by the controlled vocabulary Medical Subjects Headings (MeSH) and connectors. Cyberchondria, COVID-1 9 and Mental Health: The role of the media is crucial, because it could induce anxiety in the population. Cyberchondria involves experiencing anxiety after searching for medical information and addressing health problems online. It originates as a behavior that seeks the feeling of security, however, it is repetitive and excessive, which leads to worse worries. One of the risks is that patients develop distrust of the doctor and a greater likelihood of self-medication. The prevalence of this entity, in our country and in many others, is unknown. In the context of this pandemic, it is important that research focuses on finding an effective drug or vaccine soon;however, we must not ignore the mental health of the population, which has been impacted by all the social changes in our lives. Conclusions: Cyberchondria is a new clinical entity, which leads to the excessive and repetitive search for information on health issues on the Internet;increasing anxiety in people. In the context of the current pandemic, it is necessary to evaluate this aspect.
