Development of a clinical score, PANDA, to predict delirium in stroke care unit
Delirium frequently complicates acute stroke and worsens outcomes. Because delirium is potentially preventable, predicting its occurrence is essential. Although several prediction scores have been proposed, nurses need to quickly predict delirium in stroke care units (SCUs). We aimed to develop a simple tool for this purpose by examining a comprehensive set of potential predictors.
CONCLUSIONS: The GXT provided only a peak VO2 but not the VO2max. Consequently, the real VO2max and PPO could be provided by only VP administrations. This is likely to result from the lower Qc and SV responses observed from a prolonged incremental test protocol when compared to short bouts of constant work rate trials.

CONCLUSIONS: PulseRider-assisted coiling for treatment of patients with wide-necked aneurysm reached 90% adequate occlusion rate that rises up to 91% at sixth month with 5% complication rate. PMID: 32635777 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Cytokine storm is an acute hyperinflammatory response that may be responsible for critical illness in many conditions including viral infections, cancer, sepsis, and multi-organ failure. The phenomenon has been implicated in critically ill patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus implicated in COVID-19. Critically ill COVID-19 patients experiencing cytokine storm are believed to have a worse prognosis and increased fatality rate. In SARS-CoV-2 infected patients, cytokine storm appears important to the pathogenesis of several severe manifestations of COVID-19: acute respiratory distress syndrome, thromboembo...

Neurological manifestations include inflammatory CNS syndromes, encephalopathies, ischemic stroke
CONCLUSIONS: Detection of serum levels of CCAT2 and miRNA-216b could be applied for predicting the rupture of carotid atherosclerotic plaques. They may be potential biomarkers predicting ischemic stroke. PMID: 32633397 [PubMed - in process]
