Oral Semaglutide: A Novel Oral Preparation of GLP-1 Receptor Agonist

Priya Mohan Babu and Vinay Eligar

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

The glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an endogenous hormone produced by the L cells in the intestine. It is released in response to the intake of food and intestinal dilatation. It stimulates the pancreatic beta-cell to secrete insulin which is dependent upon ingestion of food. GLP-1 acts to slow down gastric motility and suppress appetite through the GLP-1 receptors in the satiety center. It is neutralized by the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) enzyme very quickly. Hence the endogenous GLP-1 ha...

COVID-19 Pneumonia: Guiding the Decision to Intubate Based on Work of Breathing Assessment Independent of Oxygenation

Amin Nadeem, Philip Fanapour, Mylene Apigo, Sunyoung Kim, Sanish George, Muhammad Khan, Azib Shahid, Charmi Patel, Ria Carnate and Raúl J Gazmuri

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 04, 2021

In most patients, COVID-19 pneumonia initially causes significant hypoxemia but without substantial impairment of lung compliance that would increase the work of breathing (WOB). Once adequate oxygenation is established, a tool to determine WOB independent of oxygen needs can guide the decision to intubate for invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). We monitored oxygen requirements and WOB in 10 patients admitted with severe COVID-19 pneumonia (radiographic evidence of extensive lung disease with...
