ConclusionsRemote system operation allowed full teleoperation of a non-fluoroscopic navigation system (keyboard, mouse, and screen) as well as bidirectional real-time audio/video feedback with the operating physician, providing a fully autonomous remote assistance in 50 complex ablation procedures. This technology ensures workflow continuity and optimal workforce flexibility and has relevant and promising implications in the field of training, teaching, and resource optimization that deserves further development.

In the spring of 1918, a virus swept across the world, killing approximately 50 million people by the summer of 1919. My grandmother, Kathryn (“Katie”) Ann Darmody—an Irish immigrant who settled in New York State in 1904—was among the nurses who responded to this pandemic, which became known as the 1918 influenza pandemic (or, erroneously, the Spanish flu). Today, as the world contends with the COVID-19 pandemic, my grandmother's experiences resonate with new meaning—a reminder of how, then as now, nurses have been at the forefront of public health. Her story, transmitted across generations, i...

by Josua O. Aponte-Serrano, Jordan J. A. Weaver, T. J. Sego, James A. Glazier, Jason E. Shoemaker Respiratory viruses present major public health challenges, as evidenced by the 1918 Spanish Flu, the 1957 H2N2, 1968 H3N2, and 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemics, and the ongoing severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic. Severe RNA virus respiratory infections often correl ate with high viral load and excessive inflammation. Understanding the dynamics of the innate immune response and its manifestations at the cell and tissue levels is vital to understanding the mechanisms of immunopathology and to de...

This study aims to explore high school physical education teachers’ perceptions of the potential, advantages, and disadvantages of the blended learning model of instruction. An online survey was used to register the views of 174 Spanish high school physical education teachers (120 men and 54 women). The main findings revealed that physical education teachers considered that blended learning, compared with full face-to-face learning, implied a work overload, worsened social relationships, and did not help to increase students’ motivation. Likewise, most teachers considered the physical activity performed by stud...

This study aimed to analyze the effects of several psychological factors (self-esteem, self-control, and emotional stability) over lifestyle-related variables (time spent on leisure activities) and the levels of satisfaction (family, friends, work, and leisure satisfaction) experienced during the COVID-19 outbreak. Data for this article were retrieved as part of a cross-sectional international study conducted in eleven Spanish-speaking countries between March and September 2020. The analyses were conducted using the responses of 9500 persons (65.95% women, 34.05% men). Structural equation modeling was used to test the dire...

Abstract Although misinformation has been an issue in previous public health emergencies such as black plague or spanish flu, COVID-19 pandemic highlighted its importance. Nowadays, information about health is produced so quickly that it becomes complicated to manage it efficiently. Not only scientific evidence production increased exponentially, other sources of non-validated information also emerged through websites, blogs and social media. Public health professionals must be aware of such relevant concepts, the cognitive theories that support them and what the main threats to population's health are - such as vacci...

ConclusionsIn reason of religious gatherings, places of worship had had an important role in the virus transmission, becoming the first cause of contagion in several countries especially during the first wave of the pandemic, because of the absence of social distancing, masks use, danger awareness and, in some cases, poor hygiene conditions or CoViD-19 denial. Although there was a different risk associated with different religions, this systematic review highlighted how important is to evaluate worship-related outbreaks as a major public health concern.Key messages50+ worship-relate clusters with a variable range of person...
