- How People Process Different Types of Health Misinformation: Roles of Content Falsity and Evidence Type: This study examines how people perceive and act on different types of health misinformation related to COVID-19 vaccines, such as fabrication and misuse of statistical and narrative evidence. Results from an online experiment showed that misused misinformation was more likely to be shared and verified than fabricated misinformation.
- Functional results and return to sports on recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability. Influence of the COVID-19 pandemic; Comparative retrospective study and short-term results: This study compared functional results in patients who underwent surgery for recurrent anterior shoulder instability (RAGHI) during the COVID-19 pandemic with remote-based rehabilitation, to those who had surgery before the pandemic and had in-person rehabilitation therapy. 68 patients were included and divided into two groups: In person-group and Home-based group. Western Ontario Shoulder Instability Index (WOSI) and Subjective Shoulder Value Scale (SSVS) were used to assess functional results.
- Discriminating promiscuous from target-specific autoantibodies in COVID-19: Researchers screened 247 COVID-19 patients and found that sACE2:spike complexes induced ACE2 reactivity, suggesting that autoantibodies targeting ACE2 may contribute to severe outcomes of COVID-19.
- Application of microfluidic technologies on COVID-19 diagnosis and drug discovery: Microfluidic technologies are being used to develop diagnostics and drugs for SARS-CoV-2. This review covers the structure of SARS-CoV-2 and microfluidic design, as well as the application of microfluidic devices in SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis based on detecting viral nucleic acid.
- Compulsory vaccination against COVID-19 in the context of the principles of the convention on human rights and biomedicine: This study aims to analyze the legal and ethical issues related to the introduction of compulsory vaccination against COVID-19 in countries around the world.
- SARS-CoV-2 and the nervous system
- Airways management in SARS-COV-2 acute respiratory failure: A prospective observational multi-center study: This study aimed to determine the adverse events related to tracheal intubation in COVID-19 patients, such as hemodynamic instability, severe hypoxemia, and cardiac arrest. The study was conducted in two tertiary care medical hospitals in Northern Italy from November 2020 to May 2021.
- Living with pulmonary sequelae of COVID-19 and the implications for clinical nursing practice: A qualitative systematised review: This study aims to synthesise qualitative research on pulmonary sequelae of COVID-19 and identify patient needs and experiences to develop nursing care strategies. A systematised review methodology will be used on a purposive sample of published articles to generate knowledge to guide nursing practice.
- A patient who recovered from post-COVID myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome: a case report: This case report describes a patient who developed ME/CFS after an infection with SARS-CoV-2. The patient’s symptoms, treatment, and management of ME/CFS are discussed.
- Two-year follow-up of patients with post-COVID-19 condition in Sweden: a prospective cohort study: This study aimed to determine the long-term recovery of patients hospitalised due to COVID-19 during the first pandemic wave 24 months post-admission. Results showed that over 40% of patients experienced persisting symptoms and activity/participation limitations, indicating a post-COVID-19 condition.
- Using machine learning models to predict the willingness to carry lightweight goods by bike and kick-scooter: This dataset contains survey results from two of the largest cities in Brazil and Portugal, which were used to measure people’s willingness to use active modes of transportation (biking and kick-scooting) for shopping and transporting lightweight goods in cities with low maturity for cycling and scooting.
- Surgical Management of Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy in the Era of Widespread Communicable Disease: Turbinoplasty and other mucosal-sparing techniques are the main methods used to reduce turbinate hypertrophy. Debate over which technique produces the most effective and durable outcomes is ongoing, and additional attention is needed to balance outcomes with a focus on safety during this time of widespread communicable diseases.
- Immunoglobulin, glucocorticoid, or combination therapy for multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children: a propensity-weighted cohort study: This study evaluated immunomodulatory treatments for Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) in an international observational cohort. Analysis of the first 614 patients showed that a combination of immunoglobulin and glucocorticoids was the most effective treatment. This follow-up analysis of an additional 517 patients found similar results, with a combination of immunoglobulin and glucocorticoids being the most effective treatment for MIS-C.
- TECHNOLOGIES FOR RECOVERY AND GROWTH IN POST COVID-19 ERA IN TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS IN NIGERIA: This study investigated the use of technology in tertiary institutions in Nigeria in the post-COVID-19 era. A descriptive survey design was used to sample 490 academic staff from 49 federal universities. The findings showed that technology is being used to facilitate recovery and growth in the post-COVID-19 era.
- Rhythm and conduction complications after COVID-19 infection in physiological hypertrophy of myocardium (athlete’s heart): Athletic Heart Syndrome (AHS) is a condition characterized by normal cardiac function and reversible myocardial remodelling in athletes. The incidence and severity of post-COVID-19 cardiac pathology in active athletes is unclear, but one complication is myocarditis. A case study of a 23-year-old rower with moderate COVID-19 is presented.
- Rhino Orbital Cerebral Mucormycosis in Covid-19 Crisis: This study evaluated the involvement, clinical features, contributing risk factors, and outcome of post-COVID Rhino-Orbital Cerebral Mucormycosis (ROCM), an angioinvasive fungal infection commonly seen in diabetic and immunocompromised patients. Results showed that ROCM is significantly increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
