Abstract Background and Objectives: Recent literature suggests that lung ultrasound might have a role in the diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis. The aim of the study is to evaluate the relationship between an ultrasound score and the clinical progression of bronchiolitis: need for supplemental oxygen, duration of oxygen therapy and hospital stay. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective observational single-center study, conducted in a pediatric unit during the 2017-2018 epidemic periods. All consecutive patients admitted with clinical signs of acute bronchiolitis, but without the need for supplemental...

The placement of a venous access device is no exception. In the experience of the vascular access team of our hospital, hit by the COVID epidemic in March 2020, the safety of both the patient and the staff can be ensured by an insertion bundle of few smart strategies, which include choice of long dwelling peripheral catheters (midline catheters) rather than short venous can...

In conclusion, elevated brain amyloid was associated with family history and APOE ε4 allele but not with multiple other previously reported risk factors for AD. Elevated amyloid was associated with lower test performance results and increased reports of subtle recent declines in daily cognitive function. These results support the hypothesis that elevated amyloid represents an early stage in the Alzheimer's continuum.

This study is the first to analyze the progression of atherosclerosis at frequent intervals. The previous view was that the disease progressed very slowly throughout life. However, the new results show that the disease progressed very rapidly in 40% of the individuals analyzed. Future data from the PESA study will show whether this progression is associated with subsequent cardiovascular events. Until now, the speed of atherosclerosis progression has not been a factor in assessing individual risk." "The key finding of the study is that over a short follow-up of just 3 years, 40% of individuals aged betwee...

acute; Z, Babik B Abstract The recent coronavirus epidemic poses a serious challenge to practicing intensive care physicians due to the high incidence of hypoxic respiratory failure. Because pneumonia plays a prominent role in the critical pathomechanism of COVID-19, imaging studies are at the forefront of both the diagnosis and follow-up of the disease and the detection of potential complications. Reviewing the literature data so far, we present the characteristic differences between chest CT, chest X-ray and chest wall ultrasound, and make recommendations for the use of different examination modalities. The init...
