The paucity of literature regarding the role of time and intraocular pressure (IOP) when treating ocular compartment syndrome (OCS) has resulted in limited guidance for emergency physicians (EP).
The lack of resources for and limitations placed upon testing for the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have been well documented. 1–3 On March 12, 2020, the governor of Delaware declared a state of emergency with identification of the first local cases of COVID-19, which led to an increase in testing interest among the public.
Obesity results from a complex interaction between diet, physical activity, and the environment. The built environment encompasses a range of physical and social elements that make up the structure of a community and may influence obesity.
The objective of this study was to evaluate a 12-session home/community-based health promotion/obesity prevention program (Challenge!) on changes in BMI status, body composition, physical activity, and diet.
Early rapid weight gain (RWG) increases, whereas longer durations of breastfeeding decreases, odds for later obesity.
This study sought to assess the association between unidimensional acculturation and diabetes, and analyze mediating pathways of the association in African immigrants to the United States (U.S.).
Background and Aim:
This study aims to determine COVID-19 patient demographics and comorbidities associated with their hospital length of stay (LOS).
Design: Single-site, retrospective study. Setting: A suburban 700-bed community hospital in Newark, Delaware, USA. Patients: Patients admitted to the hospital from March 11, 2020, to August 11, 2020, with a positive COVID-19 status. We followed a time-to-event analysis approach and used Kaplan–Meir curves and log-rank tests for bivariate analyses, and an accelerated failure time model for a multivariable model of hospital LOS.
Objective Healthcare systems globally were shocked by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Policies
put in place to curb the tide of the pandemic resulted in a decrease of patient volumes throughout the
ambulatory system. The future implications of COVID-19 in healthcare are still unknown, specically the
continued impact on the ambulatory landscape. The primary objective of this study is to accurately
forecast the number of COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 weekly visits in primary care practices.
Food insecurity is defined as limited access to food and is associated with adverse physical, social, and emotional health outcomes. As social needs are addressed in heath care, efficient methods to identify patients living in food insecure households are necessary. A 2-item screen (HFSS-2) derived from the US Department of Agriculture Household Food Security Scale (HFSS-18) has been validated among parents of pediatric patients with a sensitivity of 97% and specificity of 83%.
Objectives: This study empirically examines preparedness with a kit, medication, and a disaster plan on disaster outcomes including perceived recovery, property damage, and use of medical or mental health services.
Methods: Using a cross-sectional, retrospective study design, 1114 households in New York City were interviewed 21-34 months following Super Storm Sandy. Bivariate associations were examined and logistic regression models fit to predict the odds of disaster outcomes given the level of preparedness.
