Kidney patients more vulnerable to COVID-19 infections

first_img MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha Acute kidney injuryCOVID-19George Institute for Global Health IndiahaemodialysisInternational Society of Nephrologyuremic patients News Patients with damaged kidneys are vulnerable to infection, may exhibit greater variations in clinical symptoms and infectivityThe COVID-19 pandemic is throwing up unique challenges for health systems. It presents particular challenges for patients who receive regular haemodialysis. These patients with damaged kidneys, also known as uremic patients, are particularly vulnerable to infection and may exhibit greater variations in clinical symptoms and infectivity.“Unlike other at-risk individuals, these patients do not have the ability to stay at home and not interact with others. Despite the high risk they face, they must travel to dialysis centres 2–3 times every week. This significantly increases the risk of transmission of infection to patients themselves, family members, medical staff and facility workers, and all others,” says Prof Vivekanand Jha, Executive Director, George Institute for Global Health India and President of the International Society of Nephrology. The involvement of kidney in COVID-19 infection seems to be frequent. When the infection is severe, it becomes an independent predictor of mortality.In a paper entitled ‘The Novel Coronavirus 2019 epidemic and the Kidneys,’ written by an expert group of nephrologists from around the world including China, it has been pointed out that all family members living with dialysis patients must follow the precautions and regulations given to patients to prevent person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 within the family. The precautions include body temperature measurement, good personal hygiene, hand-washing, and prompt reporting of potentially sick people. The results of the study have been published in the Journal Kidney International.The management of patients on dialysis who have been suspected to have been in contact with COVID-19 should be carried out according to strict protocols to minimise risk to other patients and healthcare personnel taking care of these patients,” said Prof Jha. These guidelines have been made available on the International Society of Nephrology website.As per earlier reports of SARS and MERS-CoV infections, acute kidney injury (AKI) had developed in 5-15 per cent cases and about 60 to 90 percent of those cases reported mortality. In the case of patients with COVID-19 infection, preliminary reports suggested a lower incidence (3-9 per cent) of AKI; but later reports indicate a higher frequency of kidney abnormalities. A study of 59 patients with COVID-19 found that about two-thirds of patients developed a massive leak of protein in urine during their stay in hospital.It is recommended that persons with potential COVID-19 risk must be given the same supportive care as given to critically ill patients. Supportive care includes bed rest, nutritional and fluid support, maintenance of blood pressure and oxygenation, prevention and treatment of complications by providing organ support, maintaining haemodynamic stability, and preventing secondary infection.

323 students participate in nationwide “reflections” art program

first_imgOf the 323 students that submitted art pieces, 24 were selected as District winners by a group of judges that are experts in each art genre. These winners go forward to regional selections and potentially to the state and national levels. Inspired by the “I matter because” prompt, students’ artwork grappled with a range of complex themes including isolation, sacrifice, social justice, and self-worth, no doubt drawing on experiences from an exceptionally challenging year. Another particularly poignant submission came from Kayla Lewis-Koury, a senior at Samohi, who created a film from her experience at a Black Lives Matter protest. The theme, which was chosen prior to the events of 2020, could not have been more timely. During a year of isolation, uprising, and calls for justice students channeled their experiences and emotions into dance choreography, creative writing, photography, film production, music composition, and the visual arts. Eloise Siegler, a 3rd grade student at Franklin Elementary, was selected as a winner for her black and white photography submission of a child dressed as a doctor. “I’m completely blown away by the talent of our kids and how they’re able to express themselves through these different artistic categories,” said Fields.

While the program is a competition, its mission is to inspire students to delve deeper into the art world and use it as a tool for self reflection and expression.

Every year PTAs across the District organize the art program at their school and encourage students to use critical thinking skills to interpret the theme and express themselves imaginatively. “To me, that child represents a future generation of frontline workers. She is important because that child would be the one saving lives in a crisis like Covid-19,” wrote Siegler in her artist’s statement. “EVERY person matters, but I wanted to point out that healthcare workers save lives every day and they are essential in every way!” PTA Council Reflections Chair April Fields initially worried that less students would be motivated to participate during remote learning this year, but was very impressed to see 323 submissions come in. “The mission for the Reflections Art Program is to let children’s creativity come out and to inspire them to express themselves and find joy in the different skills you need for different types of art,” said Santa Monica-Malibu PTA Council President Gabrielle Cohen.last_img read more

Player speaks out after Man United transfer – “I had many…

first_imgFollowing the announcement on Thursday, the club released videos with the likes of Javier Mascherano and Juan Sebastian Veron both welcoming the player to the club.Rojo has spoken to the local press since his arrival to his home country, and talked about how happy he is to return to Estudiantes.“Many things came together. I need to play, return to my level, the family insisted, my old woman told me to come back. I had many offers to go to other clubs, but what better than being at home. I hope to be on the pitch as soon as possible,” said Rojo (via El Intransigente).Embed from Getty Images“I want to go to practice and be with the boys as soon as possible. I’m very happy. It’s something I dreamed of, there was a chance and it could be done. I talked to Sebastian quite a lot but one day my head clicked and I decided to return. It all came together.”Signed from Sporting in a €20m deal back in 2014, Marcos Rojo has made 122 appearances for Manchester United. His struggles with injuries have been a big problem during his time at Old Trafford. He says this is one of the reasons he’s trying a new league.“I suffered a lot of injuries lately, I went to the bench a lot. And I needed to compete and what better than to do it at home. Argentine football grew a lot and this is going to be a beautiful challenge. I talked with almost everyone and they helped me at this time. I don’t know what to say to the fans, it’s incredible.”Rojo’s loan deal with Estudiantes will run until the end of the season, and his future should become more clear in the next few months.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?
