  • Changes in violence against healthcare professionals with the COVID-19

    • Authors: Esra Kurt Canpolat, Umut Gulacti
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: To investigate how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected violence against healthcare professionals (HCPs). Background: Violence poses a severe threat to healthcare providers.
      MATERIAL AND METHODS: All violence cases against HCPs reported in Adiyaman Training and Research Hospital were retrospectively examined in two different periods: between March 22, 2020–March 22, 2021 (pandemic period) and the previous year’s same times (pre-pandemic period).
      RESULTS: Eighty-eight violence cases against HCPs occurred during the study period were included in the study. Of these cases, 64.8% occurred during the pre-pandemic period and 35.2% during the pandemic period. While the incidence of violence against HCP in the emergency department was 40.4% in the pre-pandemic period, it decreased to 29% in the pandemic period. While the most reason for resorting to violence was not wanting to wait in line in the pre-pandemic period, it was reported as hospital rule violations during the pandemic period.
      CONCLUSIONS: Our results showed that characteristics of violence against HCPs have changed in the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • A comparative study on effectiveness of workshop education versus
           education via mobile learning (m-learning) in developing medical
           students’ knowledge and skill about cardiopulmonary resuscitation

    • Authors: Maliheh Abdollahi, Gholam Abbas Valizadeh, Leila Bazrafkan, Mohammadreza Dehghani, Mostafa Bijani
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: A variety of educational approaches are being used today to improve learning in the field of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Therefore, the present study was conducted to compare workshop education with education via mobile learning (M-learning) in terms of their efficacy in developing medical students’ knowledge and skills about cardiopulmonary resuscitation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The present study was quasi-experimental performed on 60 interns selected from a university of medical sciences in southwest Iran. Participants were assigned to either the workshop education group (n = 30) or the mobile learning group (n = 30). Before and after the intervention, the knowledge and skills of the participants in terms of basic and advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation were measured by a questionnaire. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Independent-Samples t-Test, Paired-Samples t-Test, and Chi-Square Test in SPSS software v. 22. RESULTS: Education via mobile learning caused a significant increase in the participants’ knowledge about cardiopulmonary resuscitation (p < 0.05). However, this method did not result in a significant difference in the participants’ skill scores, while the workshop education group showed a significant increase in their cardiopulmonary resuscitation skill scores (p < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Our results revealed that education via mobile learning was better in enhancing medical students’ knowledge about cardiopulmonary resuscitation. However, workshop education was more effective in developing practical skills in the field of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Accordingly, educators are recommended to employ a combination of mobile learning and workshop education for achieving better results.

  • Factors affecting false calls to prehospital Emergency medical services
           and analyzing The recorded false calls in the dispatch center

    • Authors: Zahra Sheikhalipour, Akram Ghahramanian, Abbas Dadashzadeh, Omid Zadi Akhuleh, Farzad Rahmani, Majid Fallah
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: False calls to the prehospital emergency medical service (EMS) can divert EMS concentration from people with life-threatening conditions to a false situation and also affect the lives of the at-risk people.
      MATERIAL AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study, was conducted in 2019. The population consisted of 28 Dispatchers personnel and 130 emergency medical technicians located in 24 urban bases, and the recorded messages of 450 false calls to the prehospital EMS were also analyzed. Both personnel perspectives on the false calls questionnaire and false call content evaluation checklist were used to collect data.
      RESULTS: The most influential factors in the incidence of false calls were the dimensions of public education (4.38 ± 0.5) and instructions and guidelines (4.28 ± 0.51), respectively. “Insufficient knowledge of people about the sensitivity of EMS work” from the public education dimension (4.60 ± 0.54) and “Lack of codified rules for dealing with false calls to the EMS” from the instructions and guidelines dimension (4.48 ± 0.71) were the most important factors. type of requests from EMS were mostly unnecessary conversations (52.4%) and dispatching an ambulance (21.3%).
      CONCLUSIONS: Given the importance of emergency, it is required to promote the general public knowledge and culture, as well as stricter rules and training programs for all ages, should be considered to reduce false calls. On the other hand, prehospital emergency medical dispatcher personnel should be trained on how to deal with false calls.

  • New hematological parameters as early diagnosis and prognostic markers in
           critically patients

    • Authors: Birdal Gullupınar, Caner Saglam, Emine Vildan Yavru, Elif Eren Aksoy, Serhat Koran, Togay Evrin, Erden Erol Unluer
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Nucleated red blood cells and immature granulocytes are not normally detected in the blood of healthy adults. We aimed to investigate the effect of nucleated red blood cells and immature granulocytes on mortality in order to identify critically ill patients who were admitted to the emergency department, at high risk of death, and who was not traumatic.
      MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study was performed retrospectively in the emergency department of a tertiary education and research hospital between January 2021 and June 2021. All patients who died out of trauma and patients who were discharged from the emergency department on the same day were included. Nucleated red blood cells and immature granulocytes parameters were compared between the two groups. The primary outcome was all-cause death in the emergency department.
      RESULTS: Of the 188 patients included in the study, 129 (68.6%) were male. Nucleated red blood cells (1.88 ± 6.9/μL; 0.02 ± 0.08), % immature granulocytes (2.91 ± 3.04/μL; 0.58 ± 1.63) and immature red blood cells in deceased patients’ granulocyte count (0.38 ± 0.46/μL; 0.04 ± 0.04) was significantly more significant than the control group (p < 0.001). When the area under the curve was examined, the highest value was found in nucleated red blood cells (Area under the curve = 0.920, p < 0.001). In multivariate regression analysis, high nucleated red blood cells, immature granulocyte count, and white blood cell levels were associated with all-cause mortality in the emergency department.
      CONCLUSIONS: High nucleated red blood cells and immature granulocyte levels may be associated with increased mortality during admission to the emergency department.

  • Systematic review and meta-analysis of serum amyloid a prognostic value in
           patients with COVID-19

    • Authors: Bartosz Fialek, Olha Yanvarova, Michal Pruc, Aleksandra Gasecka, Alicja Skrobucha, Maria Boszko, Czeslaw Ducki, Maciej Cyran, Lukasz Szarpak
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: This study was designed to assess the levels of human serum amyloid A (SAA) among COVID-19 patients.
      MATERIAL AND METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis. A comprehensive literature search was performed (PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, and Cochrane network), and studies comparing SSA levels in: (A) with non-severe vs severe COVID-19; (B) severe vs critical COVID-19 condition; (C) survived vs died due to COVID-19 in-hospital treatment period — were included. Random-effects meta-analyses were performed to obtain pooled estimates.
      RESULTS: Thirty studies met the criteria and were included in the meta-analysis. Pooled analysis showed that SAA levels were statistically significantly lover in non-severe group 58.7 ± 53.9 mg/L compared to 154.5 ± 169.6 mg/L for patients with severe condition (MD = –120.29; 95% CI: –135.35 to –105.22; p < 0.001). SAA levels among patients with critical condition were 89.5 ± 90.4 mg/L compared to 195.3 ± 206.2 mg/L (MD = –56.66; 95% CI: –101.81 to –11.51; p = 0.01). SAA levels in patient who survived were 108.7 ± 157.3 mg/L, and 206.8 ± 58.8 mg/L for patients who not survived (MD = –85.04; 95% CI: –145.78 to –24.29; p = 0.006).
      CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, this updated meta-analysis suggests that SAA concentrations are positively correlated with the severity of the COVID-19. Therefore, SAA can be considered a biomarker for predicting the severity and prognosis of COVID-19. Measurement of this parameter might assist clinicians in monitoring and evaluating the severity and prognosis of COVID-19.

  • Effectiveness and safety of tranexamic acid in total knee arthroplasty: a
           systematic review and meta-analysis

    • Authors: Jaroslaw Pecold, Mahdi Al-Jeabory, Michal Pruc, Svitlana Doan, Ihor Navolokin, Serhii Znamerovskyi, Lukasz Szarpak
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Major elective orthopedic surgery is often associated with blood loss, requiring the need for blood transfusion. A possible pharmacological option to reduce surgical blood loss in total arthroplasty is the use of tranexamic acid. The objective of the study was to undertake a meta-analysis investigating the effects of tranexamic acid on knee arthroplasty.
      MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was designed as a systematic review and meta-analysis. The PubMed, Central, Web of Science, and Scopus databases were searched up to March 23, 2022, to identify randomized controlled trials concerning tranexamic acid (TXA) administration during knee arthroplasty. Overall and stratified pooled odds ratios (ORs) or mean differences (MDs) with their 95% confidence intervals (Cis) were obtained.
      RESULTS: Fifty-two articles were included. Pooled analysis showed that hemoglobin changes in TXA group was 3.4 ± 3.1, compared to 4.03 ± 2.62 for non-TXA group (MD = −1.30; 95% CI: –1.57 to –1.03; I2 = 99%; p<0.001). Total blood loss was reported in 31 trials and was statistically significantly lower in the TXA group compared to non-TXA (MD = –391.51; 95% CI: −454.29 to −328.73; p < 0.001). Intraoperative blood loss was lower when using TXA rather than non-TXA (MD = −32.10; 95% CI: −50.63 to −13.58; p < 0.001). 24-hours blood loss from the drain was also lower with TXA than with placebo (MD = −228.68; 95% CI: −293.31 to −164.05; p < 0.001). The above dependencies also applied to the intravenous as well as topical application of TXA. Blood transfusion was performed in 11.2% of patients from TXA group, compared to 34.3% of patients treated with placebo (OR = 0.16; 95% CI: 0.11 to 0.22; p < 0.001). Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) was observed in 4.6% of patients treated with TXA, compared to 5.8% of patients treated with placebo (OR = 0.81; 95% CI: 0.49 to 1.35; p = 0.42) and pulmonary embolism was 0.5% in TXA group and 1.4% in placebo group (OR = 0.44; 95% CI: 0.15 to 1.36; p = 0.15).
      CONCLUSIONS: Tranexamic acid is effective and safe in reducing blood loss, the requirement for blood transfusion, and drain output in patients undergoing knee arthroplasty.

  • Association between low serum vitamin D and increased mortality and
           severity due to COVID-19: reverse causality'

    • Authors: Teodoro J. Oscanoa, Rawia A. Ghashut, Alfonso Carvajal, Roman Romero-Ortuno
      Abstract: We are very close to completing two years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though vaccines have been developed and applied to more than 4 billion people in the world, SARS-CoV-2 continues to be a challenge for humanity. Therefore, it is important to study modifiable risk factors that may increase the severity of COVID-19, and one of the most discussed has been vitamin D. Currently, there is some evidence of association between low serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D3] and increased mortality and severity due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Before the pandemic, experimental evidence in animal and human studies had reported that an acute inflammatory process can cause a secondary decrease in 25(OH)D3. COVID-19 can be associated with a severe inflammatory process with an elevation of inflammatory markers; in this light, the reported association between low 25(OH)D3 and COVID-19 severity and/or mortality may be an epiphenomenon of the inflammatory process induced by SARS-CoV-2 and be an example of reverse causality.
