Psychiatric reaction of an intensive care unit survivor in the context of coronavirus disease 2019: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2022 Jun 23;16(1):263. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Neurosciences, Service of Neurology, University Hospital of Geneva, 4, Rue Gabrielle Perret-Gentil, 1205, Geneva, Switzerland.

Background: The coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic has had a serious impact on global mental health, particularly in intensive care unit survivors. Given the lethal potential and unpredictability of coronavirus disease 2019, a high risk of posttraumatic stress disorder was identified in the beginning of the crisis. There are insufficient details in current literature and no official guidelines available for the treatment and follow-up of acute stress disorder and the prevention of posttraumatic stress disorder for intensive care unit survivors in the context of coronavirus disease 2019.

Clinical features, electroencephalogram, and biomarkers in pediatric sepsis-associated encephalopathy.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 23;12(1):10673. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Pediatrics, D'Or Institute for Research & Education (IDOR), Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 22281-100, Brazil.

To date, no specific diagnostic criteria for sepsis-associated encephalopathy (SAE) have been established. We studied 33 pediatric patients with sepsis prospectively and evaluated the level of consciousness, the presence of delirium, electroencephalographic (EEG) findings, and plasma levels of neuron-specific enolase and S100-calcium-binding protein-B. A presumptive diagnosis of SAE was primarily considered in the presence of a decreased level of consciousness and/or delirium (clinical criteria), but specific EEG abnormalities were also considered (EEG criteria).

Coronavirus as the Possible Causative Agent of the 1889-1894 Pandemic.

Infect Dis Rep 2022 Jun 13;14(3):453-469. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of Health Sciences, University of Burgos, 09001 Burgos, Spain.

Using new and original nineteenth-century sources, we analysed the epidemiology, clinical features and virology of the 1889 pandemic, which was referred to at the time as 'Russian flu' or 'Asiatic flu'. However, we rejected this identification of the disease as an 'influenza', which we believe to have been based on insufficient knowledge of the causative agent and instead posit that the pandemic was caused by a coronavirus. We provide a new account of the 1889-1893 pandemic, with a more detailed chronology that included at least four epidemiological waves. Read More

Effect of remifentanil on post-operative analgesic consumption in patients undergoing shoulder arthroplasty after interscalene brachial plexus block: a randomized controlled trial.

J Anesth 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, 101, Daehak-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, 03080, South Korea.

Purpose: Remifentanil is useful in balanced anesthesia; however, there is concern regarding opioid-induced hyperalgesia. The effect of remifentanil on rebound pain, characterized by hyperalgesia after peripheral nerve block has rarely been studied. This study evaluated whether intraoperative remifentanil infusion may increase postoperative analgesic requirement in patients receiving preoperative interscalene brachial plexus block (IBP).

A Multi-country Comparative Study on Palliative Care Knowledge and Attitudes Toward End-of-Life Care Among Undergraduate Nursing Students.

J Cancer Educ 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Department of Adult Health & Critical Care, College of Nursing, Sultan Qaboos University, Al-Khod, 123, P.O. Box 66, Muscat, Oman.

The global burden of human death after experiencing serious health-related suffering (SHRS) requiring palliative care (PC) and end-of-life care (EOLC) is increasing. The largest increase in SHRS, death situations, PC, and EOLC needs continues to be in developing countries with limited access to PC. It is critical that nursing human resources in countries with limited access to PC are well trained and have adequate knowledge, attitudes, and skills to provide PC and EOLC. Read More

Study design and protocol of a low to high intensity computer-based cognitive training at home in supplement to standard care in patients with AD.

BMJ Open 2022 Jun 20;12(6):e050993. Epub 2022 Jun 20.

EMC Laboratory - (Etudes des Mécanismes Cognitifs), Universite Lumiere Lyon 2, Lyon, France.

Introduction: Recent studies on cognitive training in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) showed positive long-term effects on cognition and daily living, suggesting remote computer-based programmes to increase training sessions while reducing patient's travelling. The aim of this study is to examine short-term and long-term benefits of computer-based cognitive training at home in patients with mild to moderate AD, as a complement to the training in speech and language therapists' (SLT) offices. The secondary purpose is to study training frequency required to obtain noticeable effects. Read More
