Epidemic hemorrhagic fever complicated with late pregnancy: A case report

In this report, we describe anunusual case involving a pregnant woman with HFRS who was in a state of shock. Diagnoses: Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and septic shock. Interventions: Timely termination of pregnancyalong with correction of the shock is very important to curb the inflammation and reduce organ damage. Outcomes: Although HFRS in pregnancy could pose a serious threat to the lives of the mother and the child. Our patient was successfully treated. Lessons: Early and accurate diagnosis, anti-shock treatment, and timely termination of pregnancyare the key aspects of therapy for HFRS with late pregnancy.

Abstract In deterministic models of epidemics, there is a host abundance threshold above which the introduction of a few infected individuals leads to a severe epidemic. Studies of weather-driven animal pathogens often assume that abundance thresholds will be overwhelmed by weather-driven stochasticity, but tests of this assumption are lacking. We collected observational and experimental data for a fungal pathogen, Entomophaga maimaiga, that infects the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar. We used an advanced statistical-computing algorithm to fit mechanistic models to our data, such that different models made different ...

AbstractIn dairy cattle, the hormonal changes around calving induce large metabolic changes to support milk production. Mobilization of adipose reserves is one of the changes involved, imposing a metabolic load on the liver. We hypothesized that the risk for excessive lipolysis and hepatic lipidosis postpartum can be reduced by starting fat mobilization and processing during the prepartum period by physical exercise, especially in cows with a high body condition score (BCS). As a proof of concept, 32 pregnant Holstein ‐Friesian dairy cows were selected for a 2 × 2 experimental design. Sixteen cows had a BCS

Authors: Balayla J, Shrem G Abstract Every year, about 85 percent of the approximately 5 million births in North America are evaluated with the electronic fetal monitoring (EFM). Clinicians use the EFM as a proxy to assess fetal oxygenation status, fetal well-being, and potential compromise. Despite the widespread use of this technology, neonatal hypoxia and acidosis continue to make up a high proportion of neonatal morbidity at term. Indeed, though the fetal heart rhythm is inextricably linked to fetal acid-base status, EFM has not been shown to reliably predict neonatal pH status nor has it reduced adverse matern...

Authors: Gebremariam Weldearegawi G, Tekola KB, Fseha Teklehaymanot B Abstract Background: Each year there were about 80 million women who experienced unintended pregnancy in the globe. In Ethiopia, around one third of women have experiences of unintended pregnancy. However, the magnitude of unintended pregnancy was not determined in the study area. Hence the aim of the study was to assess the magnitude and associated factors of unintended pregnancy among pregnant women. Methods: Institutional based cross-sectional study design was employed among 345 participants. Participants were selected by systematic random...

Okay, I'm not an epidemiologist or a virologist. But I do know something about those subjects, I'm a public health professor, and I am an expert in clinical communication and risk communication. So I'm going to offer some observations that I hope will help people keep this public health scare in proper perspective and maybe be of practical use.There are two important parameters we need to understand the risk caused by any communicable disease. I'm going to broadly say transmissibility, and the probability that exposure will lead to serious disease.We often see transmissibility represented as a single number, called R0 or &...

Authors: Venkata Surekha M, Sujatha T, Gadhiraju S, Kotturu SK, Siva Prasad M, Sarada K, Bhaskar V, Uday Kumar P Abstract Background: During pregnancy, iron is transferred from mother to fetus with placental iron transport proteins (Transferrin receptor, Divalent metal transporter/DMT1, ferroportin/FPN1 and Zyklopen). The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of maternal iron deficiency anemia on placental iron transporters. Study Design: Two hundred pregnant women, in third trimester of pregnancy were divided into anemic (Hemoglobin/Hb
