Mothers’ Perception of Nursing Care of Hospitalized Children in Peadiatric Ward in a 3rd Level Facility in South-South Nigeria

Peretomode Evans, RN, RM, RPHN, B.N.Sc., MSc, Udo-Peretomode Eunice, RN, RM, RPHN, B.N.Sc., MSc and Diorgu Faith C, PhD, RM

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 24, 2021

Patient perception is an important indicator which gives an idea about the quality of nursing care services. Caregivers or family members who are responsible for the child’s stay in the hospital can play significant role in expressing their perception of the care provided to their relatives. This study assessed mothers’ perception of nursing care that exists in pediatric department of a teaching hospital in South-south, Nigeria. It also examined the association between mothers’ socio-demog...

Timeline of Cross Finger Flap: From its Inception to its Future

Sourabh Shankar Chakraborty, DNB, MNAMS, Sudeshna Acharya, MBBS, Manojit Midya, MS, MCh and Ranjit Kumar Sahu, MS, MCh, FCLS

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: April 07, 2021

Since the first description of the cross-finger flap in 1950 for finger injury defect cover, over the last 70 years it has been tremendously explored and has underwent innumerable refinements and modifications. Whether used alone or in combination with other flaps for the reconstruction of finger defects, traumatic or non-traumatic, cross finger flap has proven its worth as a workhorse for finger reconstruction. Despite a handful of innate disadvantages, it has given excellent sensory, functiona...

Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion from the Right-Side Approach in the Treatment of a Patient with Left-Sided Inferior Vena Cava

Xigong Li, Weiyi Diao, Shuo Wang, Dongdong Yu, Junsong Wu and Yuzhu Zhang

Article Type: Case Report and Literature Review | First Published: March 31, 2021

Oblique lumbar interbody fusion (OLIF) can achieve better reconstruction of the lumbar spine via the anatomic corridor between the psoas muscle and the great vessels. Despite OLIF is considered as an effective and relatively safer procedure, congenital anomalies of the main vessels surrounding the oblique corridor may pose higher risk of vascular damage, which should bear in mind in deciding to use the OLIF procedure. We presented a case of an anomalous left-sided inferior vena cava (IVC) who un...

Validity of Using Cross-Sectional Area for Strength Assessment of the Supraspinatus Muscle during Diagonal Horizontal Adduction Testing with Measured Isometric Resistance Applied through Dynamometry

Steven Forbush and William Bandy

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: April 17, 2021

A new test for assessing supraspinatus muscle (SM) injury, the Diagonal Horizontal Adduction test (DHA), has been developed which demonstrates more isolation of the SM and the similar widening of cross-sectional area (CSA) visualized through musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSK). The purpose of this study was to determine whether the resistance changes in CSA of the SM using DHA testing are consistent with the forces generated by this muscle under voluntary contraction using Isometric Dynamometry (ID...

Ivermectin and COVID-19 in Care Home: Case Report

Pierre Loué and Christine Fardeau

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 17, 2021

COVID-19 appeared at the end of December 2019 in China in the city of Wuhan before spreading around the world in just a few months. At the end of May 2020, among 77 000 people living in care home in Paris area, 16 940 (22 %) were estimated positive to Covid19 and 5 600 (33 % among positive ones) had a Covid19 related death. When lockdown started on March 15, 2020, old age and comorbidity features including heart failure, diabetes, respiratory failure, obesity, were known to be a high-risk of sev...

Possible Role of Biomedical Polymers in COVID-19 Journey: A Short Review

Akram Jassim Jawad

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: April 09, 2021

In recent months, many scientists and engineers have tried to minimize and control coronavirus spreading by different techniques. These techniques usually focused on cutting the circlet of Covid-19 infection by both direct and non-direct ways. As a polymer composites widely used in everyday products, a short review of Polymer Nano-Composites (PNCs) for antiviral activity against Covid-19 has been achieved. Firstly, virus’s structure, especially Covid-19 has been discussed. Then, different PNCs...

A Model for Coronavirus Pandemic

Pirooz Mohazzabi, Gabrielle Richardson and Gwendolyn Richardson

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 20, 2021

A simple model is developed for spread of a pandemic disease. The model is based on simple, uninhibited population growth except that the rate of infection is assumed to be proportional to the existing infected population. The model is in agreement with the CDC data on COVID-19 for the United States in 2020. Ever since humans have walked on the face of Earth, they have been afflicted by various diseases, some of which have wiped out large fractions of their population. Infectious diseases such a...

A Stochastic Model with Jumps for the COVID-19 Epidemic in the Greater Abidjan Region during Public Health Measures

Mohamed Coulibaly and Modeste N’zi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 20, 2021

Our goal in this paper is to adapt to the context of the Greater Abidjan Region (Côte d'Ivoire) an existing model reflecting the evolution of the COVID-19 epidemic in Wuhan (China). This model is a deterministic compartmental model which is translated by a system of ordinary differential equations. We are reinvesting this model to obtain the parameters of the epidemic in the great Abidjan. We study some mathematical aspects of this deterministic model. Using data from the evolution of the COVID...

Southwest Florida and COVID- 19: A Large Community Experience

Anita M Arnold, Silvia Caswell, Karla Quevedo, Chongsun Oh, Matthew J Mick

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 17, 2021

Initial reports of COVID-19 infection suggested certain populations were at high risk if infected, yet it was unclear how best to identify, triage and treat those patients. COVID-19 is a novel virus initially reported from Wuhan, Hubei province in December 2019 that has spread globally. As the virus spread, clinicians were trying to assess the populations at risk, how to treat and follow best practice guidelines as they were evolving. We sought to examine our community hospital experience, ident...

Tranilast for Preventing Scar Formation: A Renewed Therapeutic Option

Yasuhiro Horiuchi

Article Type: Short Note | First Published: April 17, 2021

The current strategies adopted for treating and preventing scar development still present many difficulties such as in cases of severe burns. Tranilast, a familiar agent for the treatment of allergies, regulates several biological processes including wound healing. Regardless of the site of scarring, tranilast is expected to minimize scar formation systemically for burns, post-surgical scars, and skin diseases such as severe acne. Tranilast is highly safe and can treat scar formation without pla...
