OBJECTIVES Accurate civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems are the primary data source to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mortality. This study assesses how the pandemic impacted CRVS system processes in Loreto region of Peru, one of the worst affected countries globally. DESIGN Qualitative study. SETTING Loreto, a remote region, which had the highest reported mortality rate in Peru during the pandemic. PARTICIPANTS Semistructured individual interviews and document...

INTRODUCTION Piling evidence suggests that a higher level of prestroke physical activity can decrease stroke severity, and reduce the risk of poststroke mortality. However, prior studies have only included ischaemic stroke cases, or a majority of such. We aim to investigate how premorbid physical activity influences admission stroke severity and poststroke mortality in patients with intracerebral haemorrhage, compared with ischaemic stroke. A prespecified analysis plan counteract some inherent b...

OBJECTIVES Interhospital transports of critically ill patients are high-risk medical interventions. Well-established parameters to quantify the quality of transports are currently lacking. We aimed to develop and cross-validate a score for interhospital transports. SETTING An expert panel developed a score for interhospital transport by a Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU), the QUality of Interhospital Transportation in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine (QUIT-EMR) score. The QUIT-EMR score is an overall s...

OBJECTIVE Bioprosthetic aortic valves with an extended subannular component, such as transcatheter valves, exert increased compression on the cardiac conduction system and increase the risk for permanent pacemaker implantation. It is unknown if the On-X mechanical prosthetic valve, which has an elongated subannular valve housing, increases the risk of permanent pacemaker implantation following aortic valve replacement. DESIGN Observational nationwide cohort study. SETTING Swedish population-base...

OBJECTIVES Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) have been proven to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in coke oven workers, and increased plasma viscosity is a signal for higher risk of catching up cardiovascular disease. We want to explore whether the plasma viscosity is affected by the concentration of PAHs. DESIGN Our study is a cross-sectional dose-response study. SETTING Participants in this study came from a coke plant in Taiyuan, Shanxi. PARTICIPANTS We used data of 693 coke ...

INTRODUCTION COVID-19 is associated with a marked systemic inflammatory response with concomitant cardiac injury and remodelling, but it is currently unknown whether the latter is reversible. Given that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a powerful stimulus to improve cardiorespiratory fitness while also eliciting marked anti-inflammatory effects, it may be an important countermeasure of reducing cardiopulmonary morbidity following COVID-19. METHODS AND ANALYSIS 40 COVID-19 survivors who...

INTRODUCTION Aphasia is an impairment of language that occurs in 30%-40% of stroke survivors. This often chronic condition results in poor outcomes for the individual with aphasia and their family. Long-term aphasia management is limited, with few people receiving sufficient services by 6-12 months postonset. We present a protocol for the development of coproduced aphasia service elements. We will use experience-based codesign (EBCD), an approach that enables service users and providers to colla...

INTRODUCTION The global COVID-19 pandemic has reported to have a negative impact on the mental health and well-being of individuals around the world. Mental health system infrastructure, primarily developed to support individuals through in-person care, struggled to meet rising demand for services even prior to COVID-19. With public health guidelines requiring the use of physical distancing during the pandemic, digital mental health supports may be one way to address the needs of the population....

OBJECTIVE To describe opioid agonist treatment prescribing rates in provincial prisons and compare with community prescribing rates. DESIGN We used quarterly, cross-sectional data on the number and proportion of people prescribed opioid agonist treatment in prison populations. Trends were compared with Ontario surveillance data from prescribers, reported on a monthly basis. SETTING Provincial prisons and general population in Ontario, Canada between 2015 and 2018. PARTICIPANTS Adults incarcerate...
