Comparison of Successful Intubation Between Video Laryngoscopy View Before Attempted Intubation and Direct Laryngoscopic Intubation by Student Registered Nurse Anesthetists: A Pilot Study.

This study required group 1 to perform direct laryngoscopy in their first clinical opportunity in the operating room; group 2 was required to observe a minimum of 3 video laryngoscopic (GlideScope, Verathon Inc) intubations performed by the clinical preceptor before the students' first attempt using direct laryngoscopy. Other modalities used to secure the airway in this study included the GlideScope and a laryngeal mask airway. Results of the data analysis revealed there was no significant difference between groups for success of direct laryngoscopy (group 1, 54%; group 2, 58%; P = .45). PMID: 26742334 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of physical activity, and its association with mental and sleep health outcomes among Jordanians during a period of COVID-19 induced lockdown. Validated questionnaires were administered using a web-based platform to evaluate moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA), anxiety and depressive symptoms, sleep health, and sociodemographic characteristics. A modified Poisson regression model with robust error variance was used to estimate adjusted prevalence ratios (aPRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Compared to participants who met the guidelines, those who did not had s...

Eco-anxiety, also known as climate anxiety or  eco-distress, was defined by the American Psychological Association in 2017 as “a chronic fear of environmental doom.”1 This phenomenon is not considered a DSM diagnosis or medical disorder, but rather a natural response to a significant stressor, namely “the generalized sense that the ecolo gical foundations of existence are in the process of collapse.”2 However, as legitimate as it may be, this anxiety can still cause distress and dysfunction. Therefore, there is a clear need for strategies for managing and mitigating this state of unease.

This provides evidence to support the establishment of international cohorts of treatment-seeking veterans to improve knowledge within this field.
