Evolution of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 according to previous metabolic status

Nutr Hosp. 2021 Jun 28. doi: 10.20960/nh.03469. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) encompasses a wide spectrum of symptoms, including respiratory, gastrointestinal, hematological, and dermatological manifestations. The virus interaction with cells located in the respiratory tract causes the release of inflammatory mediators, whose involvement could be exacerbated by co-existing obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular events.OBJECTIVES: the objective of this research was to analyze the clinically metabolic status in patients who have suffered COVID-19 disease in order to predict the outcome.METHODS: this research is a retrospective study based on a cohort of 165 consecutively admitted patients with criteria for COVID-19 pneumonia according to WHO guidelines at the Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro between March and April 2020. Recorded variables included demographic and epidemiological data plus diagnoses as well as morbid complications during hospitalization. The Biochemistry Unit Laboratory carried out laboratory analyses according to validated operational procedures. The statistical tests included univariate and multivariate models adjusted for baseline characteristics and clinically relevant features.RESULTS: the most frequent comorbidity in our cohort was arterial hypertension (44.0 %), followed by dyslipidemia (32.1 %), obesity (30.9 %), and diabetes mellitus (20.0 %). The association between admission to the intensive car...

AbstractChronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is an underdiagnosed condition. Patients typically present with the symptoms of right heart failure. Diagnosis is usually done by radionuclide ventilation/perfusion (VQ) scan, high-quality multidetector computed tomography (CT) or pulmonary angiography at expert centers. Pulmonary endarterectomy remains the corner stone in management of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest is commonly used for the operation at most centers. In-hospital mortality ranges from 1.7 to 14.2%. Pulmonary hemorrhage, reperfusion lung injury, and rig...

Q fever is a common zoonosis with almost a worldwide distribution caused by Coxiella burnetii. Farm animals and pets are the main reservoirs of infection and transmission to humans is usually via inhalation of contaminated aerosols. Infection in humans is often asymptomatic, but it can manifest as an acute disease (usually a self-limited flu-like illness, pneumonia or hepatitis) or as a chro...

Commenting on the announcement that the government is to end the public sector pay freeze UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said: “There’s never a good time to freeze public sector pay. Doing so at the peak of a pandemic was the height of folly. “Staff were doing their all to keep under-pressure services running, and ministers looked like they didn’t care. “There can be no decent public services without the people to run them. Pay freezes don’t help employers hold on to experienced staff, nor attract new recruits. “But if the chancellor doesn’t allocate...
