  • V.I.T.A.M. in COVID 19: A Systematic Approach to a Global Pandemic

    • Authors: Siva Naga S. Yarrarapu, Pankaj Bansal, David Abia-Trujillo, Austin Cusick, Megan Melody, Varun Moktan, Andrea Rivero, Tara J. Brigham, Claudia Libertin, Lisa Brumble, J O’brein Jennifer, Augustine Lee, Torp Klaus, Christan Santos, Candido Rivera, Jason Siegel, Pramod Guru, Pablo Moreno Franco, Devang Sanghavi
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      IntroductionIn the unprecedented era of COVID-19, ongoing research and evolution of evidence has led to ever-changing guidelines for clinical monitoring and therapeutic options. Formulating treatment protocols requires the understanding and application of the evolving research.ObjectiveThe primary objective of this study is to present a systematic evidence-based approach to synthesize the necessary data in order to optimize the management of COVID-19.MethodsAt Mayo Clinic Florida, we developed a multidisciplinary centralized COVID Treatment Review Panel (TRP) of expert pulmonologists, intensivists, infectious disease specialists, anesthesiologists, hematologists, rheumatologists, and hospitalists that in real-time reviews the latest evidence in peer-reviewed journals, the available clinical trials, and help guide the rapid application of therapeutics or interventions to the patient and the bedside provider.Results/ConclusionsThe multi-disciplinary team approach of synthesizing clinical data and coordinating care is effective in responding to rapidly evolving and changing evidence. Systematic data collection and evidence-based treatment algorithms enable physicians to rapidly translate the current literature to clinical practice, and improve care and outcomes of patients.

  • Inhaled Nitric Oxide via High-Flow Nasal Cannula in Patients with Acute
           Respiratory Failure Related to COVID-19

      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      INTRODUCTIONLimited evidence exists regarding use of inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in spontaneously breathing patients. We evaluated the effectiveness of continuous iNO via high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) in COVID-19 respiratory failure.METHODSWe performed a multicenter cohort study of patients with respiratory failure from COVID-19 managed with HFNC. Patients were stratified by administration of iNO via HFNC. Regression analysis was used to compare the need for mechanical ventilation and secondary endpoints including hospital mortality, length of stay, acute kidney injury, need for renal replacement therapy, and need for extracorporeal life support.RESULTSA total of 272 patients were identified and 66 (24.3%) of these patients received iNO via HFNC for a median of 88 h (interquartile range: 44, 135). After 12 h of iNO, supplemental oxygen requirement was unchanged or increased in 52.7% of patients. Twenty-nine (43.9%) patients treated with iNO compared to 79 (38.3%) patients without iNO therapy required endotracheal intubation (P = .47). After multivariable adjustment, there was no difference in need for mechanical ventilation between groups (odds ratio: 1.53; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.74-3.17), however, iNO administration was associated with longer hospital length of stay (incidence rate ratio: 1.41; 95% CI: 1.31-1.51). No difference was found for mortality, acute kidney injury, need for renal replacement therapy, or need for extracorporeal life support.CONCLUSIONIn patients with COVID-19 respiratory failure, iNO delivered via HFNC did not reduce oxygen requirements in the majority of patients or improve clinical outcomes. Given the observed association with increased length of stay, judicious selection of those likely to benefit from this therapy is warranted.

  • Inflammatory Mechanism and Clinical Implication of Asthma in COVID-19

    • Authors: Vasa Adi Wisnu Wardana, Alfian Nur Rosyid
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the respiratory tract that has become a public health problem in various countries. Referring to the Global Initiative for Asthma, the prevalence of asthma continues to increase especially in children. Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that has declared a pandemic by the world health organization on March 2020. For many years, it has been known that people with asthma have a worse impact on respiratory viral infections. Asthma has been listed by the centers for disease control and prevention as one of the risk factors for COVID-19, although several studies have different results. SARS-CoV-2 utilizes angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) as its cellular receptor, and it has been known that the expression of the ACE2 receptor is reduced in asthma patients. This reduced expression could also be accounted from the therapy of asthma. This paper aims to discuss the pathophysiology of asthma and COVID-19 and the susceptibility of asthma patients in contracting COVID-19.

  • Transient Impact of Dysglycemia on Sputum Conversion among Smear-Positive
           Tuberculosis Patients in a Tertiary Care Facility in Ghana

    • Authors: Ernest Yorke, Vincent Boima, Ida Dzifa Dey, Maame-Boatemaa Amissah-Arthur, Vincent Ganu, Ernest Amaning-Kwarteng, John Tetteh, C. Charles Mate-Kole
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      BACKGROUNDApart from increasing the risk of tuberculosis (TB), diabetes may be associated with more severe disease and lower rates of sputum conversion among TB patients.METHODSWe conducted a baseline cross-sectional study with a longitudinal follow-up of newly diagnosed smear-positive TB patients for 6 months. Sputum conversion rates between those with dysglycemia and those without were compared at 2 months (end of the intensive phase) and 6 months (end of the treatment). Descriptive statistics and logistic regression were computed to assess factors associated with dysglycemia as well as sputum conversion.RESULTSA significantly higher proportion of normoglycemic patients had negative sputum compared with those with dysglycemia (83% vs 67%, P-value  .05). After controlling for age group and adjusting for other covariates, patients with dysglycemia were 66% less likely to convert sputum than those with normoglycemia. Females were at least 7 times more likely than males and those with high waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) of 88% were less likely compared with those with low WHR for sputum conversion at 2 months, respectively. At 6 months, females (compared with males) and those with high WHR (compared with those with normal WHR) were at over 9 times increased odds and 89% less likely for sputum conversion, respectively.CONCLUSIONA significantly lower proportion of smear-positive TB patients with dysglycemia converted to smear negative after 2 months of treatment but not at the end of the treatment, thus suggesting a transient impact of dysglycemia on sputum conversion.

           To Pembrolizumab

    • Authors: Hisham Wehbe, Maria Kozah, Salwa A Koubaissi
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Background:Paraneoplastic hyper-eosinophilia associated with metastatic lung adenocarcinoma is a rare finding and has been associated with a poor prognosis when present. Early hyper-eosinophilia appearing following non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) has been previously reported with contradictory outcomes.Case summary:We present the case of an elderly man with newly diagnosed metastatic lung adenocarcinoma and baseline hyper-eosinophilia, treated with pembrolizumab, and showing evidence of significant and rapid disease progression suggestive of hyper-progressive disease, worsening baseline hyper-eosinophilia, and a fatal outcome within 1 month of therapy initiation.Conclusion:Pre-treatment hyper-eosinophilia could represent a predictive factor of an unfavorable response to ICI treatment in cases of NSCLC. Additional similar cases are needed to draw a more conclusive relationship.

  • Assessment of Ventilation and Perfusion in Patients with COVID-19
           Discloses Unique Information of Pulmonary Function to a Clinician: Case
           Reports of V/P SPECT

    • Authors: Marika Bajc, Fredrik Hedeer, Ari Lindqvist, Elin Trägårdh
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      V/P SPECT from 4 consecutive patients with COVID-19 suggests that ventilation and perfusion images may be applied to diagnose or exclude pulmonary embolism, verify nonsegmental diversion of perfusion from the ventilated areas (dead space ventilation) that may represent inflammation of the pulmonary vasculature, detect the reversed mismatch of poor ventilation and better preserved perfusion (shunt perfusion) in bilateral pulmonary inflammation and indicate redistribution of lung perfusion (antigravitational hyperperfusion) due to cardiac congestion. V/P mismatch and reversed mismatch may be extensive enough to diminish dramatically preserved matching ventilation/perfusion and to induce severe hypoxemia in COVID-19.

  • A Quick Review on the Multisystem Effects of Prone Position in Acute
           Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) Including COVID-19

    • Authors: Janet O Adeola, Shivani Patel, Evelyne N Goné, George Tewfik
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Objective:The purpose of this review is to highlight the multisystem effects of prone position in ARDS patients with a focus on current findings regarding its use in COVID-19 patients.Methods:Two reviewers comprehensively searched PubMed database for literature regarding pathophysiology and efficacy of prone position in ARDS patients as well as specific data regarding this approach in COVID-19 patients.Conclusion:Prone positioning is well-documented to improve oxygenation and cardiac function in ARDS patients and might confer increased survival, with benefits that outweigh risks such as facial edema, endotracheal tube displacement, and intraabdominal organ dysfunction in obese patients. Severe COVID-19 pneumonia, while meeting ARDS criteria, differs from typical ARDS in several ways. Data would suggest that advantages of prone position would become limited after significant disease progression and fibrosis. The use of this technique in COVID-19 requires prolonged sessions that are unprecedented in the treatment of ARDS patients. New data regarding COVID-19 pathophysiology and patients continues to evolve daily. More frequently, patients are proned while maintaining spontaneous breathing—the results of this intervention are an area for future studies. There is more to learn about the appropriate use of prone position in COVID-19 patients. The multisystem risks and benefits require clinicians to adopt a patient centered decision-making algorithm when employing this technique in COVID-19 patients.Level of evidence:NA

      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Purpose:Nintedanib is an approved treatment for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which slows disease progression. Management of patients with IPF receiving nintedanib can be complicated by tolerability issues, comorbidities, and concomitant medications. We developed consensus recommendations on the management of dosing, adverse events and comorbidities in patients with IPF treated with nintedanib.Methods:A modified Delphi process using 3 questionnaires was used to survey 14 pulmonologists experienced in using nintedanib. Panelists rated their agreement with statements on a Likert scale from −5 (strongly disagree) to +5 (strongly agree). Consensus was predefined as a mean score of ⩽−2.5 or ⩾+2.5 with a standard deviation not crossing zero.Results:The panelists’ recommendations were largely aligned with clinical trial data, real-world evidence, and the prescribing information, and provided additional guidance regarding minimizing gastrointestinal effects, periodic monitoring for liver dysfunction, caution with respect to concomitant administration of cytochrome P450 3A4 and P-glycoprotein 1 inhibitors and inducers and anticoagulants, and management of comorbidities. The panelists unanimously agreed that adverse event management should be individualized, based on careful consideration of the risks and benefits of each possible intervention and discussion with the patient.Conclusions:These consensus recommendations provide additional guidance on the appropriate management of IPF with nintedanib, for use alongside evidence-based literature and the prescribing information.

    • Authors: Thanyaluck Sriboonreung, Jirakrit Leelarungrayub, Araya Yankai, Rungthip Puntumetakul
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Objective:To identify the correlations and possible predicted equations of maximal inspiratory (MIP) and expiratory mouth pressure (MEP) values from pulmonary function test (PFT), demographics, and anthropometrics.Methods:This study involved 217 healthy participants (91 males and 126 females) aged 19 to 50 years. The PFT (forced vital capacity; FVC, forced expiratory volume in 1 second; FEV1, maximal mid-expiratory flow; MMEF, and peak expiratory flow; PEF) was performed by spirometry, whereas MIP and MEP were evaluated by a respiratory pressure meter. Pearson correlation and multiple linear regression, with the stepwise method, were used for statistical analysis.Results:The MIP and MEP had a significant positive correlation with weight, height, body mass index (BMI), and waist circumference. MIP had a significant positive correlation with FVC (%) and PEF (L/s and %), as well as a negative correlation with FEV1/FVC (ratio and %) and MMEF (%). Whereas, MEP showed a significant positive correlation with PEF (L/s and %) and negative correlation with FEV1/FVC (ratio and %) and MMEF (L/s). Finally, the predicted MIP and MEP equations were 103.988−97.70 × FEV1/FVC + 31.292 × Sex (male = 1 and female = 0) + 0.662 × PEF (%) and 47.384 + 3.603 × PEF (L/s)−9.514 × MMEF(L/s) + 30.458 × Sex (male = 1 and female = 0) + 0.534 × PEF (%), respectively.Conclusion:The respiratory muscle strengths can be predicted from the pulmonary function test, and gender data.

           Experience of an Expert Specialist Reference Center

    • Authors: Amelia Spinella, Luca Magnani, Marco De Pinto, Chiara Marvisi, Luca Parenti, Gianluigi Bajocchi, Carlo Salvarani, Maria Teresa Mascia, Dilia Giuggioli
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Objective:COVID-19 pandemic represents a serious health emergency that severely compromised our Public Health system, resulting in a rapid and forced reorganization and involved the management of chronic diseases too. The Scleroderma Unit of Modena and Reggio Emilia follows more than 600 patients suffering from systemic sclerosis (SSc) and recently became the referral center (HUB) in Emilia-Romagna for this rare connective tissue disease. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the extent by which the lockdown and the pandemic has impacted the activity of admissions to Scleroderma Unit of Modena and Reggio Emilia.Methods:Our daily clinical activity is characterized by outpatient visits, videocapillaroscopy exam, ulcers treatment, therapeutic infusions in day hospital regimen, multidisciplinary visits following our dedicated SSc care pathway, and clinical trials. Our activity has been quickly rescheduled to ensure the proper assistance to our SSc patients during the COVID-19 pressure.Results:The use of telemedicine has certainly assured a robust continuity of health care. Furthermore, telephone pre-triage, nurse/medical triage, proper physical distancing and use of PPE/DPI allowed us to re-organize and continue SSc daily activity. Specifically, therapeutic infusions in day hospital regimen and outpatient visits, including ulcers treatment, was guaranteed and maximized.Conclusion:The management of scleroderma patients by an expert specialist reference center is crucial in order to ensure continuity of care and pursue the best SSc practice.

  • COVID-19 Related Cardiovascular Comorbidities and Complications in
           Critically Ill Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

    • Authors: Michael Koeppen, Peter Rosenberger, Harry Magunia
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Circulatory, Respiratory and Pulmonary Medicine, Volume 15, Issue , January-December 2021.
      Objective:This systematic-review and meta-analysis aimed to assess the prevalence of cardiovascular comorbidities and complications in ICU-admitted coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients.Data sources:PubMed and Web of Science databases were referenced until November 25, 2020.Data extraction:We extracted retrospective and prospective observational studies on critically ill COVID-19 patients admitted to an intensive care unit. Only studies reporting on cardiovascular comorbidities and complications during ICU therapy were included.Data synthesis:We calculated the pooled prevalence by a random-effects model and determined heterogeneity by Higgins’ I2 test.Results:Of the 6346 studies retrieved, 29 were included in this review. The most common cardiovascular comorbidity was arterial hypertension (50%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.42-058; I2 = 94.8%, low quality of evidence). Among cardiovascular complications in the ICU, shock (of any course) was most common, being present in 39% of the patients (95% CI, 0.20-0.59; I2 = 95.6%; 6 studies). Seventy-four percent of patients in the ICU required vasopressors to maintain target blood pressure (95% CI, 0.58-0.88; I2 = 93.6%; 8 studies), and 30% of patients developed cardiac injury in the ICU (95% CI, 0.19-0.42; I2 = 91%; 14 studies). Severe heterogeneity existed among the studies.Conclusions:Cardiovascular complications are common in patients admitted to the intensive care unit for COVID-19. However, the existing evidence is highly heterogeneous in terms of study design and outcome measurements. Thus, prospective, observational studies are needed to determine the impact of cardiovascular complications on patient outcome in critically ill COVID-19 patients.
