The purpose of this scoping review by the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) COVID-19 Nutrition Taskforce was to examine nutrition research applicable to the COVID-19 pandemic. The rapid pace of emerging scientific information and need for expeditious translation into clinical nutritional care prompted this activity to discover research/knowledge gaps. This methodology adhered with recommendations from the Joanna Briggs Institute. There were 2301 citations imported,...
CONCLUSION: The COVID-19 outbreak has had a negative impact on endoscopy training of gastroenterology fellows in a high-volume center in Germany. This must be taken into consideration when planning "return-strategies" after the pandemic.
CONCLUSIONS: COVID-19-induced liver injury must not be ignored, as it is observed in one fifth of infected patients. Pro- spective studies evaluating liver function during the course of COVID-19 are needed to provide a complete overview of hepatic involvement during this viral infection.
In attempts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 among high-risk inflammatory bowel disease patients, many gastroenterology practices have recently gone 'virtual', using telemedicine technologies to care for their patients. In efforts to support this transition and improve approachability, social media platforms have been used to deliver telemedicine services with significant success. However, the patient perspective on this use of social media has largely been ignored. This study provides a...
In April 2020, a newly recognized pediatric disorder associated with COVID-19 characterized by significant inflammation with symptoms resembling Kawasaki disease was described by medical teams in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Italy. Before these reports, data from the initial COVID-19 outbreaks in China had not found the virus to cause significant morbidity or mortality in children. To date, pancreatitis has not yet been reported in either acute SARS-CoV-2 infection in children or...
CONCLUSION: Old age, active smoking, pulmonary embolism, decreased SpO(2)/FiO(2) ratio, and increased lactate and D-dimers were predictors of 28-day mortality in critically ill COVID-19 patients.
CONCLUSION: we emphasize the importance of good screening protocols, rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2 and other most common respiratory pathogens, which may help for a better control of COVID-19 spread and avoid delayed care of other lung diseases.
CONCLUSIONS: RV and LV function are significantly impaired in hospitalized COVID-19 patients compared with matched controls. Furthermore, reduced TAPSE and GLS are independently associated with COVID-19-related death.
CONCLUSION: Among those who continue to drink alcohol, social distancing has led to a significant increase in the amount of alcohol ingested, frequency of alcohol use, and an increase in AUDIT-C scores in women suggesting hazardous alcohol use behaviors. Clinicians should continue to assess patient alcohol use during the pandemic. Further studies will be needed to assess long-term outcomes after the COVID-19 pandemic resolves.
