Why are hospitals turning a blind eye to racist patients who demand a white doctor?

DR ZESHAN QURESHI: It's 3am at a busy London hospital. I've been called to the delivery of a premature baby. I step into the cubical, where I'm met by the father, who lunges toward me.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAnakinra, which is an Interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor antagonist with the advancing disease process, has started to be considered as an alternative treatment for Covid-19 patients with cytokine storms. We evaluated the effect of corticosteroids and IL-1 receptor blockage with anakinra on pregnant patients with Covid-19 at high risk for respiratory distress, ongoing fever, deterioration in their general condition and consequently maternal and fetal complications. Fourteen pregnant women who received anakinra (median dosage: 400 mg...

Respir Care. 2021 Oct;66(10):1549-1559. doi: 10.4187/respcare.08766.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Inhaled nitric oxide (INO) is used to treat hypoxic respiratory failure without clear evidence of benefit. Future trials to evaluate its use will be designed based on an understanding of the populations in which this therapy is provided and with outcomes based on patient characteristics, for example, a history of premature birth.METHODS: This was a multi-center prospective observational study that evaluated subjects in the pediatric ICU who were treated with INO for a respiratory indication, excluding those treated in the neonatal ICU o...

CONCLUSIONS: This is the largest relevant series and longest follow-up to date. Adverse outcomes were likely incidental because the mothers' medical histories revealed alternative aetiologies. There was no definite evidence of fetal morbidity or mortality after HBOT in this study. HBOT may improve long-term fetal outcomes after in-utero CO poisoning without complications.PMID:34547775 | DOI:10.28920/dhm51.3.248-255

Ichthyosis prematurity syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis that is associated with mutations in theSLC27A4 gene. Its onset occurs in early childhood and presents with the clinical triad of premature birth, thick caseous desquamating epidermis, and neonatal asphyxia. Here, we describe a prematurely born baby patient (33 weeks of gestation) with a homozygous variant at the initiation codon site (c.1 A#x3e;G,p.Met1Val) in theSLC27A4 gene to raise awareness of this rare syndrome despite its distinctive features as we believe it is still underdiagnosed.Case Rep Dermatol 2021;13:470 –473
