In the general population, increased WBCC and neutrophil count are widely used as markers for infection during inflammatory states 1. However, 32% of geriatric patients with an infection do not develop an increase in WBCC 2. The hypothesis is that with inflammation, geriatric patients have a misadapted response of the immune system (IS) 3. Our recent retrospective study 4 has shown that total and differential WBCC were not correlated with infection in a geriatric hospitalized population. Therefore, WBCC does not seem to be a reliable marker for infection in geriatric hospitalized patients. The neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio, and CRP, seem to be better markers. the aim of the study to investigate this hypothesis prospectively and assess the role of aging and chronic diseases (such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and risk factors (CVRF) 5, cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection 6, periodontitis 7, onychomycosis 8 ) in this process and assess the role of a geriatric assessment. To assess the usefulness of WBCC in the diagnosis of infection in geriatric patients and to address the contribution of ongoing chronic co-morbidities and age to WBCC-kinetics during an acute inflammatory syndrome, young and geriatric hospitalized patients with an inflammatory syndrome with and without infection will be compared
Description: observation of WBCC is correlated with infection by older patientMeasure: Usefulness of white blood cell count (WBCC) during infection in geriatric patient Time: 1.5 years
The disease COVID-19 has been classified as pandemic by World Health Organisation (WHO) in March 2020. This poses a risk to healthcare workers. Whether esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a aerosol-generating procedure (AGP) has brought controversy. Multiple international guidelines consider EGD as AGP based on expert consensus. No scientific data has been published regarding this. With a commercially available particle counter, we can differentiate the particle counts of different sizes in different areas of the endoscopy room. An increase from baseline particles of < 5um during or after the procedure would suggest that the procedure is an AGP. The baseline particle counts before and during the procedure are also recorded. The details of the procedure including procedure time and the use of sedation are also documented.
The Corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is currently involving all parts of the world. Several risk factors for critical illness and death from the disease have been proposed. However, it is still unclear if the observed associations between different comorbidities and chronic medications and severe COVID-19 disease and mortality is different from associations between the same factors and other severe diseases requiring intensive care unit (ICU) -care. This is important since some of the observed risk factors are very common in the aged who, by age alone, are more prone to a more severe course of any disease. By combining several registries, this study will compare, on several comorbidities such as hypertension and diabetes , the first 2000 cases of COVID-19 patients receiving critical care in Sweden to a Swedish sepsis-cohort and a Swedish adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) -cohort.
Description: In a binary logistics model with the outcome Sepsis or COVID-19 the OR for several comorbidities are determined.Measure: Risk factors of ICU care COVID-19/Sepsis Time: Five years preceding ICU admission to ICU admission
Description: In a binary logistics model with the outcome ARDS or COVID-19 the OR for several comorbidities are determined.Measure: Risk factors of ICU care COVID-19/ARDS Time: Five years preceding ICU admission to ICU admission
Description: In a binary logistics model with the outcome ICU-mortality the OR for the interaction between several comorbidities and a binary variable COVID-19/Sepsis are determined.Measure: Risk factors of ICU mortality COVID-19/Sepsis Time: Five years preceding ICU admission to ICU discharge
Description: In a binary logistics model with the outcome ICU-mortality the OR for the interaction between several comorbidities and a binary variable COVID-19/ARDS are determined.Measure: Risk factors of ICU mortality COVID-19/ARDS Time: Five years preceding ICU admission to ICU discharge

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
