Prolonged exposure to heat does not affect clinical and biochemical characteristics in patients with cystic fibrosis
Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance are key clinical characteristics of cystic fibrosis (CF), especially when patients are exposed to high temperatures. However, the effect of prolonged heat exposure on clinical and biochemical status of patients with CF is unknown.In Cyprus, an island with extreme heat during summer, we used wearable sensors to monitor ambient temperature exposure and physical activity in patients with CF and control individuals for 2 weeks during three periods (summer, early fall, late fall). At the end of each period, all participants were clinically assessed measuring anthropometrics, blood pressure,...

Efficacy of corona virus disease 2019 vaccines on oxygen demand, intensive care unit administration and mortality: a single centre retrospective study
Conclusions: The study have shown that there is no difference between the mortality rates (p=0.52) of vaccinated and unvaccinated patients who needed supplementary oxygen therapy. Their ICU admission rate (p=0.67) does not show a significant difference as well. The results demonstrate that even though ICU admission does not differ in vaccinated and unvaccinated groups, mortality rate is double in the latter (p=0.25). (Source: European Respiratory Journal)
