ABSTRACT

Objective: This study sought to explore the perceptions of experts about the performance of nursing homes during the COVID-19 outbreak. Method: A qualitative study was developed in two stages: (1) a focus group, conducted in May 2020, with 5 experts; (2) a modified e-Delphi, implemented in September 2020 with 22 experts, both in the area of assistance in nursing homes from Northern and Center of Portugal. Results: The results allowed identifying three main areas that influenced the performance of nursing homes during the COVID-19 outbreak: organization models and resources; physical and mental health of residents and; family as a support. Conclusions: Older adults residing in nursing homes are particularly vulnerable to severe disease or death from COVID-19. It is emergent that nursing homes prevent physical and mental frailty in older residents and the loneliness aggravated by the pandemic circumstances. Decision-makers need to recognize that older people living in nursing homes have several health needs, which should determine the implementation of new strategies namely the increase in the number of professionals with appropriate skills.

ABSTRACT

This is the first known case of a Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) positive patient treated entirely with Ayurveda. So far in Modern Western Medicine (MWM), no cure has been found which is specific to COVID-19. The only literature relevant to the treatment of Coronavirus disease has surfaced from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM which was extensively used to control the epidemic in China, also consists of herbal medicines similar to Ayurveda. In this case, the patient, who was familiar with the use of Ayurvedic medicines, fully aware that no proven cure exists in MWM, decided to entirely rely on the limited Ayurvedic medicines that he had in his possession at the time of falling ill. Despite the patient presenting with symptoms, namely high fever, severe body pain and severe cough, along with many of the other associated symptoms of COVID-19, the progress of the disease could be arrested within a short period by being exclusively on Ayurvedic medicines. This illustrates that there is a wide scope to explore the variety of pertinent medicines present in Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia which can be used more rationally to suit every stage of the disease. Being the first-of-its-kind it is a valuable contribution to scientific literature from the world of Ayurveda. This should encourage the healthcare policy makers to quickly use Ayurveda to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control in India, as they seemed to have demonstrated it in China with TCM.

ABSTRACT

Motivation for the choice of topic: The covid-19 pandemic has restructured the entire health care system. As systems of care were overwhelmed, many health professionals in related professional areas became increasingly involved in providing medical aid. The present paper aims to highlight a comparative analysis between two psychiatric wards of the same hospital, with qualified medical staff, with similar levels of competence, one of the wards caring for patients exclusively with major psychiatric pathologies, and the other patients with associated SARS-COV2 infection. The objective is to highlight links between different variables, such as motivation versus amotivation, anxiety and/or burnout, work experience, and resilience, all of which also relate to decisions to accept and provide quality medical care to this particular category of patients. Methodology Application of specific questionnaires and scales on a group of 60 medical workers in two psychiatric wards, one of which was declared a ward working with psychiatric patients with covid. Results: Resident doctors, then nurses, followed by hospital attendants, attending physicians and lastly psychologists, cope in descending order with professional stress related to covid-19 anxiety. This is high and correlates positively with depression and burn-out - which, in the case of young people, risks demotivating them to the point of destroying their future plans and the hope of successful professional self-esteem. Conclusions: The covid-19 pandemic in a psychiatric hospital has raised anxieties even among medical staff, who have moved from somatic to psychiatric care over the years, and the comorbidity of mental illness and SARS-COV2 infection has raised particular problems. Among staff, anxiety, risk of depression, burnout, with depletion of compensatory resources have increased. Resilience calls for the use of mature defence mechanisms and professional experience protects against anxiety and burnout.

ABSTRACT

Understanding COVID-19 vaccination attitudes is of paramount importance in order to estimate and influence the willingness to vaccinate. A cross-sectional study was performed in the spring of 2021 in Romania by sending a web-based questionnaire to patients with rheumatic autoimmune diseases in order to assess their willingness to vaccinate against SARS CoV-2 and to identify factors that might influence their decision. Variables derived from the questionnaire were analyzed in univariable and multivariable analysis. 71 patients, of which 60 (84.5%) women, were included in the study, with a 53.5% (38 subjects) willingness to vaccinate. A positive association was observed between the willingness to vaccinate and the patients' trust in authorities, trust in the healthcare system and the choice of scientific sources of information in their decision making. A positive correlation was observed between the intention to vaccinate and the global VAX score, as well as the subscale VAX scores (p<0.05). Global VAX score emerged as a predictive factor for the intention to vaccinate on logistic regression (p<0.05). The present study underlines the importance of reliable scientific sources of information for pa-tients with autoimmune diseases and how the general attitude about vaccination becomes a pre-dictive factor for accepting COVID-19 vaccine.

ABSTRACT

Background: The impact of severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) infection on Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) patients and their humoral response against the virus infection or vaccination is presently unclear, as in extant research Type 1 and Type 2 DM is rarely distinguished. Objective: we aimed to investigate the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection, any associated risk factors for hospitalization, and the COVID-19 IgG antibody levels in T1DM patients versus those obtained from healthy individuals. Methods and subjects: 58 T1DM patients and 56 healthy adults with documented COVID-19 diagnosis and/or documented vaccination were recruited from different clinics in Al-Karak Governmental Hospital to complete a questionnaire before collecting their serum samples for measuring IgG levels. Results: Our results revealed a statistically significant decrease in SARS-CoV-2 NP IgG antibody levels in COVID-19 infected T1DM patients compared to infected healthy individuals who served as controls, while, no significant difference was noticed in the levels of SARS-CoV-2 S1/S2 IgG antibody among vaccinated T1DM patients versus controls. After adjusting for associated risk factors, the risk of hospitalization due to COVID-19 for individuals with uncontrolled T1DM was significantly increased compared to controls, and among patients with T1DM, glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) correlated negatively with the IgG levels. Moreover, IgG seropositivity was significantly associated with old age and smoking. Conclusion: Our findings point towards an increased need for vaccination for patients with T1DM, and suggest that glycemic control could be a vital measure for diminishing the impact of COVID-19 on these individuals.

ABSTRACT

Infertility arising from infections is alarming cause of secondary infertility which is growing in number by the day. Mullerian anomalies can result in female infertility. A unicornuate uterus with a rudimentary horn is an abnormality induced by a faulty mullerian duct fusion. On Hysterosalpingogram, the uterine cavity has a spindle-shaped that tapers at the tip and drains in to a single oviduct. A 30 years old female with secondary infertility post COVID 19 infection, which upon investigated turned out to be unicornuate uterus with single fallopian tube on left side cornual block visualized in fallopian tube. All the causes of fallopian tube block including pelvic inflammatory disease, tuberculosis, trauma and bacterial infections were ruled out yielding COVID19 as the probable cause of infertility. Fallopian tube cannulation was done following which she conceived spontaneously. Elective encirclage done at 12 weeks and she was asked to report at 37 completed weeks for cervical stitch removal. After that emergency LSCS done. She delivered baby boy of 2.7kg with APGAR score 9/10. We concluded that angiotensin convertase enzyme 2 receptor were present on the fallopian tube might be responsible for post COVID fallopian tube blockage which is a topic for further studies. Prompt detection and management of long COVID sequelae in the form of infertility, particularly in predisposed people who are more likely to develop such difficulties, is thus critical to preserve infertility.

ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 pandemic was a real challenge to healthcare systems worldwide, particularly in emerging nations;this study aims to provide a vision of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on breast cancer (BC) management and reconstruction in Saudi Arabia. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted across health care practitioners;we accumulated data by an online questionnaire from 58 physicians in different specialties about the effect of COVID-19 pandemic on their practice from March 2021 to May 2021. Results: About 45% of participants reduced medical practice during Covid-19 pandemic by 10 - 30 %, and 41% reduced medical practice by 31-50%. About half of the participants (48%) treated less than five breast cancer patients infected by Covid-19, and about 36% of patients developed Covid-19 infection under chemotherapy. Conclusion: there was a considerable reduction in providing health services to patients affected by breast cancer, yet Saudi Arabia managed to get out of this pandemic with the least damage possible due to governmental efforts. In capable countries and organizations, health authorities should share their expertise and experience to prevent damage to people already suffering from a devastating disease like breast cancer.

ABSTRACT

Background: Hospitalization is not normally necessary in all COVID patients, nor is lab tests and PCR. There is subjective evidence that patients with "slight" COVID-19 may complain of persistent symptoms weeks after the infection. Methods: A group of 489 patients was tracked for 8 months after recovering from mild to severe COVID-19 infection at a Saudi tertiary hospital between March 6th and December 2nd 2021, IRB and informed permission acquired #89742/2022, and participation was freely. We evaluated the clinical condition, lab findings, and demographic features of the patients and used SPSSversion26 to perform our statistical analysis. Results: All of them were followed up until the second follow-up visit at 4.3 months (median 131 days (IQR 112-149). Age was a significant indicator of post CL syndrome, obtained p-value for age, 0.032, was less than critical alpha level of 0.05. BMI was a significant indicator of post CL syndrome, obtained p-value 0.032 (odds ratio (OR) 1.04;95% confidence interval (95% CI): (1.00 - 1.073)), body aches was a significant indicator of post CL syndrome, obtained p-value 0.040 (OR 0.59;95% CI (0.36-0.98)), fatigue was a significant indicator of post CL syndrome, obtained p-value.005 (OR 2.05;95% CI (0.99-4.22)). Conclusion: Manifold signs are present around 3 months after the onset of signs in formerly hospitalized and non-hospitalized participants with established or suspected COVID-19. This suggests the presence of a "(post-COVID-19 syndrome)" and peaks the final healthcare needs in a subset of individuals with "slight" or "Spartan" COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

COVID-19 (Coronavirus infectious disease 2019) denotes an ever changing and varied disease which has crippled the health care systems throughout the world. There have been studies conducted across the globe to establish the important factors for severity and mortality associated with COVID-19. We tried to study the effect of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on the severity as well as outcome of COVID-19. Material and methods: A total of 180 patients with COVID-19 were enrolled in this study and were then screened for history of COPD. There were 49 patients with history of COPD and 131 patients with no history of COPD. Inflammatory markers and HRCT scores were assessed for all the patients and they were followed up to study the outcome. Result: COPD was significantly associated HRCT Score, inflammatory markers and outcome. The mean HRCT Score for patients with COPD was more in COPD group (15.39 +/- 4.65) when compared with Non-COPD group (9.39 +/- 3.98). Mortality was also significantly higher in patients with COPD (67.3%) when compared to the patients without COPD (3.3%). Conclusion: We conclude that COPD is an important factor which has to be considered while treating the patients of COVID-19 especially in the rural India where lockdown restrictions and lack of knowledge have provided hinderance in achieving optimal follow up as there is increased severity and mortality associated with it.

ABSTRACT

Background: Despite the emergence of potentially prophylactic vaccines, COVID-19 transmission poses a persistent threat to healthcare providers (HCPs) communities. Aim: Assess the progress in the knowledge and attitudes of HCPs of Armed Forces Hospital Wadi Al Dawasir (AFHWD) toward COVID-19 measures and vaccines perception. Methods: A questionnaire was distributed online, 09-10, 2021, to achieve study aim. SPSS-22.0 software was used for the analysis;ANOVA;t-test used for comparing quantitative variables;.2 for categorical data;level of materiality set to 0.05. Results: Out of 149 HCPs, 38 (25.5%) were "physician" 44 (29.5%);"nurse";31 (20.8%) " allied health" 11 (7.4%)" pharmacist";25 (16.8%);"other"'. HCPs averaged 39.3 +/- 9.2y of age. Overall score (84.3%) greater than cutoff, set to 70%, also greater than that assessed earlier (69.5%) was achieved (p=0.005). The higher profession the higher score (p<0.05). "Age";"clinician";"infection prevention and control (IPC) training;"COVID-19 infection", were significant score predictors. COVID-19 "all knowledge" (general and IPC, combined) = 79% exceeded cutoff (70%), (p<0.001);also exceeded that identified earlier (69.6%), (p<0.001). The IPC perception score behaved likewise: 86.1% vs. 70%, 86.1% vs. 71.6%, (p<0.001), respectively. An overall vaccine response (68.3%) comparable to cutoff was verified (68.3%), (p=0.08). Most (86.6%) HCPs accepted a COVID-19 vaccine;73.2% were vaccine confident;23.3% of those immunized were concomitantly vaccine hesitant (p = 0.012). "Age" and "clinician" predicted vaccine response variability. Conclusion: Findings imply an ongoing improvement of the HCPs' responses on COVID-19 requirements. Continued education and adherence with updated protocols provide utmost protective environment for the HCP staff against COVID-19 consequences.

ABSTRACT

Background: During COVID-19, the mode of education was changed completely to online, however, in medical colleges across Saudi Arabia, the lectures were a blend of online and offline (PBL, examination, clinical skills, and labs) activities. Aims: Our aim of this study to compare the learning outcomes in both medical and non-medical students and find out the challenges, limitations, and problems faced by medical students in the online and offline blended mode of teaching. Methods: After acquiring affirmative consent, 151 medical and non-medical students from Shaqra University were randomly engaged in a cross-sectional study. A classic questionnaire was created in Google Form and a virtual assessment was done. The acquired students' data was assessed using SPSS and Microsoft Excel software. Results: Over 85% of both medical and non-medical students chose online real-time training methods. In the COVID-19 duration, more than 80% of medical (M) and non-medical (NM) students said that virtual teaching was comparatively more difficult for them to focus on than the on-site teaching. Over 50% of both M and NM students believe that the COVID-19 epidemic damaged their grades this semester/block. Surprisingly, after receiving the vaccination, more than 80% of M and NM students expressed interest in on-site instruction. Conclusions: The study clinched that the online mode of education was disliked by many students regardless of the stream and are eager for offline mode of education.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Due to the confinement of the COVID-19 pandemic, educational centres have remained closed, transferring the teaching process to online mode, thus adapting infrastructure, methodologies, and the university community. Objectives: This work aims to evaluate the effectiveness of strategies in learning organic nomenclature and seek student opinions about committing fraud in organic chemistry course assessments in the online mode in the pharmaceutical career. Methods: The methodologies used allowed the students to understand and apply the organic nomenclature rules, using online collaborative guides and crosswords worked in synchronous classes, previous reading, and the collaborative asynchronous creation of informative files for the recognition of heterocyclic compounds and formative assessment. All assessments were applied in three-people groups in the synchronous classes. Finally, an anonymous survey was administered to know the student perception of the possibility of fraud during the course. Results: A substantial improvement (from 47.7% to 80.5%) was observed in the application of IUPAC rules for organic compounds. Of the students who responded to the anonymous survey, 81% reported that the methodology used decreased the opportunity to commit fraud during assessments.

ABSTRACT

With the emerging of new strains of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (such as B.1.1.529 for example), despite numerous studies to create effective vaccines, it becomes obvious that the relevance of studying the pathomorphology of tissue structures with damaged cellular targets has increased manifold. Most knowledge on genes of pathogenicity loses its importance for the development of antiviral agents since the reservoir for the virus is the cells, in which SARS-CoV-2 then persists. These data are more important for the development of vaccines, and the treatment strategy should be based on damaged cellular targets. The mechanisms of hypoxia in patients infected by SARS-CoV-2 with COVID-19 do not have an exhaustive explanation based only on the acute alveolar damage. Our investigation deals with the data on pathologic red bone marrow in patients with a fatal COVID-19 outcome against the background of various indicators of erythrocytes in clinical blood tests. We found in the structure of the red bone marrow that there is damage to the stroma and parenchyma as well as pathomorphological signs of damage to erythropoiesis in the patients of both groups. The data obtained on the cellular targets of SARS-CoV-2 can serve as a fundamental platform for the development of targeted conservative therapy in the treatment of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, and should also be taken into account in severe COVID-19 cases with the risk of unfavorable prognosis.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the need for regional collaboration on disease prevention and control to the fore. The review by Durrance-Bagale et al. offers insights on the enablers, barriers and lessons learned from the experience of various regional initiatives. Translating these lessons into action, however, remains a challenge. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) planned to establish a regional centre for disease control;however, many factors have slowed the realisation of these efforts. Going forward, regional initiatives should be able to address the complexity of emerging infectious diseases through a One Health approach, assess the social and economic impact of diseases on the region and study the real-world effectiveness of regional collaborations. The initiatives should seek to be inclusive of stakeholders including those from the private sector and should identify innovative measures for financing. This advancement will enable regions such as ASEAN to effectively prepare for the next pandemic.

ABSTRACT

Online teaching and learning have received widespread acceptance in recent years due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The current study set out to determine nursing students' perception and attitude to the online learning model (OLM) in the schools of nursing within South-West Nigeria. The study employed a descriptive cross-sectional design to collect data among nursing students. A self-developed questionnaire was used in this study to collect data via online google.form.com. Data analysis involves application of Relative Importance Index (RII). Findings revealed a high level of perception about online classes. Main attitudinal traits demonstrated by students were getting easily distracted, engaging in multiple tasks and having family distractions. Family members also distracted the teachers. Poor electricity supply, unstable internet network, and financial constraint were the major barriers encountered. In conclusion, we found that nursing students in South-West Nigeria demonstrated a positive disposition to online learning and have a good attitude towards it.

ABSTRACT

Background. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) have become an increasing cause of concern among sonologists. In this study, we evaluate the incidence and risk factors for WRMSDs among sonologists in the pre-COVID-19 and present COVID-19 era while identifying high-risk zones for WRMSDs and providing a brief review of optimal working conditions to avoid WRMSDs. Methods. A "Google form" questionnaire with close-ended questions regarding musculoskeletal discomfort was sent to 350 radiologists during the period of February-March 2021. Data was collected by time-based sampling over a period of 15 days. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS version 26. Results. 77% (n = 100) of the respondents reported suffering from musculoskeletal discomfort, and 70% (n = 100) attributed such discomfort to their profession as a sonologist (p = 0.001). Among sonologists who attributed their musculoskeletal discomfort to their profession, shoulder pain (p = 0.001), neck pain (p = 0.001), lower back pain (p = 0.001), and wrist pain (p = 0.017) were the most common symptoms. When musculoskeletal discomfort was attributed to the profession, a statistically significant association was found with stress level during the COVID-19 pandemic (p = 0.001) and musculoskeletal discomfort attributed to using extra barrier precautions such as transparent screens during ultrasound (US) scans (p = 0.009). Conclusions. Adapting to new safety and ergonomics is the need of the hour. A regular review of the work practices adopted by sonologists, especially in the current context of COVID-19, enforced protective strategies may greatly help in risk identification and minimizing the precipitation of WRMSDs.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: human resources in industrial parks are an important component of the global supply chain Social capital, including social networks, beliefs and norms, can play an actively expanded role in maintaining the stable working status of this group of workers. This article analyzes social capital as an important factor in bringing a group of workers mostly from rural backgrounds back to the country's industrial parks after the covid-19 epidemic is brought under control. Design/method/approach: Questionnaire data from Vietnam's Binh Duong industrial cluster is used to measure social capital and analyze its impact on the return of the workforce. The team used 514 semi-structured questionnaire data combined with 15 in-depth interviews with workers and business andunion managementgroups to measure the relationship between social capital and workers' choice to return to work. Result: Social capital has a dominant role in directing workers back to the industrial park. Other factors that have influenced the process include corporate support policies and the role of trade unions. Practical meaning: The return of workers to work in industrial parks concentrated in Vietnam in addition to economic value also affirms confidence in the network of relationships. The exchange and trust in corporate policies are the motivation for workers to stick with the business for a long time in the context of safe adaptation to the covid 19 epidemic. Originality / value: This article provides an insight into the process and nature of workers returning to work after fleeing industrial parks in Vietnam before the 4th wave of covid-19 outbreak. It provides theoretical lessons on human resource management based on social capital in Vietnam and countries with many industrial parks concentrated in Southeast Asia.

ABSTRACT

Background: Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection has made restrictions on every sports level, from the audience to athletes worldwide. Volleyball players' life were affected by COVID-19 infection, the layout of training, and competitions. This study aims to show the effect of COVID-19 infection on the performance of volleyball players. Methods: Nineteen volleyball players aged 15-20 in the same volleyball club and infected with COVID-19 in the first league of their country were included in the study. Weight, height, fat percentage, muscle mass, countermovement jump, Squat jump, Spike jump tests, and agility T-tests records were compared before (1 and 2 measures) and after the COVID-19 infection (3 and 4 measures). The team physician asked and recorded the players' feelings about changes in their sports performance after the COVID-19 infection. Results: The mean number of PCR (+) days was 13.4 +/- 2.6. All the median differences of the vertical jump tests had a statistically significant increase at every measure except for the Countermovement jump and squat jump' last two measures, squat jump' first two measures, and spike jump' between twice and third measures. The median differences between the first and last agility T-tests were not statistically significant (p = 0.277). The feeling of volleyball players about the sports performance level was decreased by 57.9%, increase 10.5%, no change 31.6%. Conclusions: Volleyball players' vertical jump performance was getting better despite the COVID-19 infection in our study. Inactivity might be more harmful than COVID-19 infection on sports performance.
