  • Evaluation of Gynecology Patient-Oriented Free Mobile Android Medical Apps

    • Authors: Roxana Denisa Capras, Ariana-Anamaria Cordoş
      Pages: 124 - 138
      Abstract: Introduction: Women's lives have always been marked by numerous questions and anxieties related to their reproductive system. Smartphones have contributed significantly to the development of and progress in modern medicine. At this moment, mobile medical applications in the field of gynecology offer quick and easy access to information about women's reproductive health, starting with puberty and ending with late menopause. Aim: The purpose of this study was to identify mobile applications in the field of gynecology that provide correct, easy to understand and evidence-based medical information. Materials and methods: The study took place between July 1-20, 2021. A search was carried out on the "Google Play" webpage using the keywords: pregnancy, fertility, ovulation, and menstrual cycle. Only applications in English were considered eligible. Each application was evaluated according to its general characteristics (country of origin/ranking/download count). We also evaluated six specific criteria for each individual application: interactivity, functionality, aesthetics, contents, benefits, and evidence-based aspects. Results: Eighty-five applications available on ″Google Play″ were selected and described. The extracted applications could be easily used by both patients and gynecologists. All analyzed applications were evaluated with almost the maximum score for interactivity, functionality, aesthetics, content, and benefits. None of the applications offered sufficient details to prove that the information provided was based on evidence. Conclusions: All the applications included in the study had an extremely attractive interface and were built to be easy to use. Unfortunately, none of the applications met the necessary criteria to be classified as evidence-based mobile medical applications.

  • COVID-19 Monthly Pandemic Evolution in Algeria

    • Authors: Zohra CHEKROUD, Salim HEDDAM, Nadjah KHANNAT, Bouchra KHALFAOUI
      Pages: 139 - 147
      Abstract: Our study's objective was to retrospectively evaluate the pandemic Coronavirus Infection Disease first appeared in 2019 (COVID-19) in Algeria from July 2020 until February 2022 by studying the evolution and relationship between three variables: the number of new cases, the number of new deaths, and the number of cases hospitalized in intensive care. Data were obtained from "Our world in Data Organisation" ( on 01 March 2022. They were proceeded by descriptive and multivariate analysis. The correlation between the three variables and the analysis of individual principal components (PCA) were conducted. The number of new cases shot up the month of January 2022 with 33685 cases, the peak number of cases in intensive care was recorded in July 2021 with 1261 cases whereas the number of new deaths reached its peak in the month of August 2021 with 1015 cases. A significant linear dependence has been identified between the number of new cases and the number of cases in intensive care (R2>0.5). The PCA analysis allowed us to distinguish the months of August 2020, November 2020, July 2021, August 2021, September 2021, and January 2022. They were characterized by high levels of new confirmed cases, new deaths and/or cases in intensive care. During the study period, the pandemic COVID-19 in Algeria passed by three waves characterized by peaks in the number of new cases and new deaths.
