Lend a hand to help the Gift of Life program

first_imgWe would like to thank the Gift of Life for expanding services and for also seeking community support from within Port Arthur.The 22-year-old nonprofit has helped hundreds of people from our area for decades; and now, when they seek help from our community, we hope our community does the right thing and returns the favor. The group is seeking a business partner to underwrite their Blessing Bags food program, and we are sure someone will step up and do the right thing. Ideally the Chamber of Commerce will put the word out and help organize something — a group of businesses could agree to underwrite one month a year, for example — and soon this worthy idea will be fully funded.However, even more than money, the group needs community leaders and especially church leaders and retired people to volunteer to talk to groups and translate. If you need something to do or if you want to give back and participate with something more substantial than a donation, please call their offices and offer up your time. Speaking volunteers need not be medical experts — only generous.center_img To sign up, please call 409-833-3663.last_img read more

Critical illness common in New York COVID-19 inpatients: study

first_imgOf 1,150 COVID-19 adult patients hospitalized in New York City from Mar 2 to Apr 1, 257 (22%) were critically ill, and 101 (39%) of them died, according to the largest known US prospective study of coronavirus patients.In the prospective cohort study, published yesterday in The Lancet, researchers from Columbia University and two affiliated NewYork-Presbyterian Hospitals in Manhattan reviewed electronic medical records and lab and radiographic findings of COVID-19 patients in respiratory failure.The most common symptoms of the 257 patients included shortness of breath, fever, cough, muscle pain, and diarrhea. Median time from symptom onset to hospitalization was 5 days; black, Hispanic, and Latino patients sought care later in their illness than white patients. Ninety-four (37%) of the patients were still hospitalized as of Apr 28. Median observation period after hospitalization was 19 days. Underlying illnesses, delays in seeking careFifty-nine (62%) were Hispanic or Latino, and 13 (5%) were healthcare personnel. Of the total, 82% had one or more underlying illness, the most common of which were high blood pressure (162 [63%]) and diabetes (92 [36%]); 119 (46%) were obese, including 39 (71%) of 55 patients younger than 50 years.Of the 257 patients, 203 patients (79%) required mechanical ventilation for a median of 18 days, 170 (66%) received vasopressors for low blood pressure, and 79 (31%) needed dialysis. Median time to clinical deterioration after hospitalization was 3 days. Using the multivariable Cox model, the authors determined that advanced age, chronic heart disease, chronic lung disease, and elevated levels of inflammatory marker interleukin-6 (IL-6) and the blood clot indicator D-dimer were independently associated with in-hospital death.Median age was 62 years, and 171 of 257 (67%) were men.The vast majority of patients (229 of 257 [89%] received antibiotics, and 208 (81%) were prescribed antiviral drugs: 185 (72%) were given hydroxychloroquine, and 23 (9%) received remdesivir. Sixty-eight (26%) patients received corticosteroids, and 44 (17%) were given IL-6 receptor antagonists for inflammation.Implications for hospital resource allocationMax O’Donnell, MD, MPH, senior author on the study, said in a press release that the study helps characterize the effect of COVID-19 on critically ill patients.”Of particular interest is the finding that over three quarters of critically ill patients required a ventilator and almost one third required renal dialysis support,” he said. “This has important implications for resource allocation in hospitals, where access to equipment and specialised staff needed to deliver this level of care is limited.”The researchers caution that their results may not apply to hospitals outside of New York City and call for research on more racially, ethnically, and geographically diverse patient groups.In a commentary in the same journal, Giacomo Grasselli, MD, and Alberto Zanella, MD, of the University of Milan in Italy, highlight the study’s association between risk of death and high levels of IL-6 and D-dimer.”First, it confirms the key pathogenic role played by the activation of systemic inflammation and endothelial-vascular damage in the development of organ dysfunction,” they wrote. “Second, it provides the rationale for the design of clinical trials for measuring the efficacy of treatment with immunomodulating [involved in immune response] and anticoagulant [blood clot–preventing] drugs.”They call for further research to improve and tailor therapies, focusing on the role of initial noninvasive respiratory support, timing of intubation, optional mechanical ventilation settings, and the safety and effectiveness of immunomodulating and anticoagulant drugs.last_img read more

Powered by Firework The heavyweight showdown between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is potentially expected to land at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This news was first reported by Lance Pugmire of LA Times.Advertisement This is the biggest heavyweight fight in American soil since Wladimir Klitschko took on Bryant Jennings in 2015 at the Madison Square Garden in New York, where the Ukrainian legend won the fight via unanimous decision.Advertisement Initially, it was expected that the fight will land in either New York or Las Vegas but Barclays Center in New York already has a Michelle Obama speech scheduled for that night, while T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is hosting a Justin Timberlake concert.Deontay Wilder is coming off of an impressive win over Luis Ortiz, where Wilder survived an onslaught from Ortiz but ultimately displayed his uncanny power late in the bout when he knocked out Ortiz in the tenth round.Advertisement Meanwhile, Tyson Fury is coming off of a dull win over Francesco Pianeta on the undercard of Carl Frampton and Luke Jackson.The fight is scheduled to land on Showtime PPV in US and BT sports PPV in the United Kingdom.Also Read-KSI vs Logan Paul sold almost as many PPVs as Jones vs Cormier 2!

Sreesanth on Koffee-gate: Others have made bigger mistakes

first_imgAdvertisement 6dgeNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs6bpWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E9dk9( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 5h6t6Would you ever consider trying this?😱58rCan your students do this? 🌚57gRoller skating! Powered by Firework Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were ordered to return from Australia after their comments on Kofee with Karan sparked an outrage on social media. The duo, who were suspended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) from playing any form of cricket, drew flak from all quarters for their comments about women. The BCCI has also set up an inquiry against Pandya and Rahul. However S Sreesanth feels that Indian cricket needs both of them as the duo are match-winners and will be crucial in the upcoming World Cup 2019.Advertisement Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have been suspended by the BCCI pending an inquiry.“I will only say that whatever happened was very bad, but the World Cup is around the corner. Both Hardik and Rahul are both good cricketers…,” Sreesanth told reporters.“I will only say to Hardik and Rahul, that surely they are both match-winners and sooner or later they will be back on the field. Yes, I know how difficult it is for a cricketer to miss the game and I just hope BCCI allows them to play, once they realise I am sure they should be playing where they should be playing,” the former India pace bowler added.Advertisement Hardik and Rahul have been replaced by Vijay Shankar and young Shubman Gill for the two contests. Sreesanth reckons that there are cricketers who have done worse things that the two and have luckily gotten away without any punishment.“Yes, what happened was wrong. They said some wrong things. But there are others whose have made bigger mistakes than these, who are still playing and are in different fields not just cricket. The same people are speaking about this. When they see an opportunity they pounce on it like tigers,” Sreesanth said.Advertisement Sreesanth himself is under a life-long ban from cricket by BCCI for a spot-fixing scandal in 2013, but still has hope left in him that someday it would be lifted.“On top of that, if my ban gets lifted this month or next month, then I will be the happiest…,” said the cricketer who has chalked out the plans thereafter – try himself in Ranji matches before fighting for a spot in the Indian team.

SA hockey women secure Scotland series victory

first_img17 February 2014 The South African women’s hockey team secured a series victory over Scotland at the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria on Sunday after turning a 1-0 halftime lead into a 4-0 victory in the third of five tests. In the two previous matches, Giles Bonnet’s charges won 5-3 and 4-2. South Africa’s goals came from on-song striker Celia Evans (33rd and 52nd minutes), confident debutant Toni Marks of Eastern Province (50th) and double Olympian Kathleen Taylor (69th).Milestone Kelly Madsen reached the milestone of playing her 100th Test match to add another chapter to the remarkable hockey achievements of the Madsen family, who could make up a family team composed entirely of players who have represented South Africa. While the test series has been decided there will be no let up from the team ahead of their departure for Buenos Aires on Wednesday evening for a five-test series against world number two Argentina, which will play a vital role in South Africa’s preparations for the World Cup and Commonwealth Games. The Scots, too, are working very hard ahead of the Champions Challenge and Commonwealth Games tournaments that are set to be held in Glasgow, and will be determined to give a good account of themselves with the bigger picture in mind.Up to the task Scotland had their moments on Sunday, but the South African defence was up to the task of containing the threat, and while the penalty corner count was shared at four apiece, it was South Africa’s confident finishing, especially from open play, which impressed. The assuredness and self-belief of the home team’s strikers – and indeed across all three lines, from the defenders to the midfield to those up front – has been a feature of the series.Standout performer While South Africa turned in an impressive display, Nicolene Terblanche stood out, putting together an energetic all-round performance that lifted her team-mates. Scotland disappointed, but will still be able to take some positives out of the game. The two remaining tests will be played on Tuesday at 18:30 and Wednesday at 13:30.
