This study was carried out to assess the effect of vaccination status on the severity and clinical outcome among patients infected with COVID-19. The study included all adult COVID-19 patients admitted in our hospital from 1 st April...
Article
There are numerous publications describing the epidemiology and clinical outcome of patients infected with COVID-19. However, limited studies solely describing the fatalities, especially in India. In this retrospective, single-centre analysis of patients’ case records, we aim to describe and discuss the demographics, clinical, laboratory findings i...
Article
Patients with nasal polyposis frequently have associated bronchial asthma and hypersensitivity to NSAIDs. When the three conditions co-exist, it is referred to as the Samter’s triad. Patients with Samter’s triad are an important subset of those with aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD). We present a case of a young female patient undergoi...

The year 2020 saw the rise of an influenza-like illness from SARS-nCoV2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Illness by novel Coronavirus 2), which causes myriad of symptoms in patients, ranging from mild upper respiratory symptoms to severe ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome). It is, however, known to cause high morbidity and mortality in patients wit...

Background Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a frequent complication of COVID-19 and is associated with a component of thrombo-inflammation and cytokine storm. COVID-19 also affects the hemostatic system causing multiple coagulation abnormalities that is a cause of concern and needs to be addressed. Objective We aimed to assess coagulat...
Article
The virus SARS-CoV2 and the disease spectrum caused by it have led to a widespread impact on the medical and economic status of all nations of the world. This led to an expedited mission to introduce a vaccine which could attempt to neutralize the pandemic to some extent. Many vaccines have been introduced with an acceptable safety profile, produci...

Identification of neurological manifestations associated with SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2) in patients with no or mild pulmonary infection proves to be a challenge. The incidence of neurological associations of COVID-19 may be small as compared with respiratory disease; however, in the present scenario with an increa...

Evaluation of clinical and epidemiological profiles of such patients can help in understanding and managing the outbreak more efficiently. This study was a prospective observational analysis of 200 diagnosed COVID-19 patients admitted to a tertiary care centre from 20th march to 8th May 2020. All these patients were positive for COVID-19 by an oro-...
Article
INTRODUCTION COVID-19 started in November 2019 as an infection with a new strain of Corona virus and spread across all geographic regions. It has been observed that various coagulation abnormalities are not infrequent in COVID-19. Bleeding and coagulation abnormalities have surfaced as one of the mechanisms that could be related to increased mortal...

We read with interest the two articles by Tadolini et al. [1] and Stochino et al. [2] which described recent cohorts of either current or former TB patients with COVID-19 and studied their clinical course. India has the majority of global burden of tuberculosis (TB) along with highest rising number of daily COVID-19 cases in the world [3, 4]. Thoug...

Both tuberculosis and COVID-19 being communicable and prevalent diseases in India, the co-existence can lead to worse outcomes, as seen in this study, where there was high mortality among active as well as treated TB patients with COVID-19 co-infection

Awake fiberoptic bronchoscope (FOB) guided intubation is the gold standard of airway management in patients with cervical spine injury. It is essential to sufficiently anesthetize the upper airway before the performance of awake FOB guided intubation in order to ensure patient comfort and cooperation. This randomized controlled study was performed...

Use of ultrasonography for performance of nerve and plexus blocks has made the process simpler and safer. However, at times,variant anatomy of the visualized structures can lead to failure of blocks or complications such as intravascular injections. This is especially true in case of novice operators. We report a case of a variant branch of subclav...

With an ever-increasing incidence of high impact collisions, polytrauma is becoming increasingly common. Patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) may require urgent surgical intervention along with maintenance of an adequate mean arterial pressure (MAP) to maintain cerebral perfusion. On the other hand, patients who sustain blunt aortic injuries...
Article
Difficult airway is always of special concern to anesthesiologists, but in a trauma setting where having a secured airway is most important, the incidence of difficult airway increases manifold. We report a "cannot ventilate cannot intubate" situation in a trauma patient who was later diagnosed to have arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, a syndrome...

The role of clonidine as an adjuvant to local anesthetic agents in brachial plexus block (BPB) has been extensively studied. However, till date there has been no consensus about the ideal dose of clonidine for this purpose. This study was carried out to evaluate two doses of clonidine-1 and 2 g/kg, added to 0.5% bupivacaine, with regard to onset an...

Giant paraesophageal hernia is an uncommon morbid disorder which may present a risk of catastrophic complications and should be repaired electively as soon as possible. Laparoscopic fundoplication is the mainstay of surgical management of this disorder due to several advantages such as lower post-operative morbidity and pain. We report a case of a...
