Abstract : Background: The newly emerging covid-19 pandemic has imposed an undeniable burden on the global health care systems and human well-being. Objective: To holistically evaluate the perception and knowledge of radiology team members as regards COVID-19 infection and its related aspects. Methodology: A cross-sectional anonymous questionnaire-based survey was conducted among radiology teams within the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. It targeted both radiologist and radiology technicians. Results: one hundred fifty-four radiology team members participated in this study. They were 88 radiologists and 66 technicians. Sixty-two radiologists (70%) had a good knowledge about the new Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines for the radiology department teams during the covid-19 pandemic. Their overall perception and practice regarding the protective measures was very high (96.8%). Conclusion: Radiology team members within the Eastern Province area were highly acquainted with the MOH guidelines for dealing with covid-19 pandemic. They are also fully oriented with the self-precautionary measures during the pandemic. Although the participants’ number is slightly limited, it may highlight the need for further studies with higher participants’ number to give a realistic view of the radiologists and their team when dealing with biological hazards such as this pandemic.

Abstract : Introduction: Patients with coronavirus 19 (COVID 19) presented with mesenteric venous thrombosis (MVT). Methods: This study included 10 patients presented with acute abdomen who were diagnosed with MVT on contrast enhanced CT of the abdomen. Diagnosis of COVID 19 was confirmed by PCR on nasal and orpharyngeal swab in 8 cases while the other two cases with negative PCR were diagnosed by high resolution chest CT. All cases were managed with abdominal exploration except for one case with splenic infarction which was managed conservatively. All cases received therapeutic dose of low molecular weight heparin postoperatively. Results: In our study two cases out of nine required re-exploration and re-resection of the gangrenous bowel segment and another two cases require mechanical ventilation because of chest complication. Conclusion: The best current strategies for confronting such complication in COVID-19 are prophylaxis with low-molecular-weight heparin and treatment with full-dose low-molecular-weight heparin with monitoring of anti-Factor Xa if available; however there is no evidence to support thus result.

Abstract : Abstract: Public health concerns have been raised about the possibility that exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields from cell phones could affect the overall health. Objectives: to determine the perception of university students regarding Mobile phone health hazards, and find out their actual practice of usage. Study design: A cross sectional study was conducted in Minia University. Methods: The study participants were university students from different faculties. A total of 765 participants answered the questionnaire. Results: Most of participants (72.1% of males and 86.9% of females have at least one mobile phone, 77.2% of males and 56.5% of females using mobile phone for 5-10 years. Right ear (45.6%) was preferred. (75.5%) of females locate the mobile in the bag while 82.6% of males locate it in their pocket. Majority of males (99.2%) and females (99.5%) were aware about health hazards of mobile phone. Most of participants agreed that mobile phone usage can cause headache (87.8%), sleep disturbance (63%), and loss of mental attention (58.7%). Conclusions: the authors found that most of the participants used the mobile phone for 5-10 years. Right ear was preferred than left ear. Majority of the students were aware about health hazards of mobile phone. Most of them agreed that the mobile phone usage can cause health hazards.

Abstract : Von Willebrand Factor (vWF) is a multimeric glycoprotein that functions as bridge between platelets and subendothelial tissue, also acts as a carrier of factor VIII. Meanwhile, vWD, a hereditary deficiency of vWF is the most frequent congenital human bleeding disorder that can be classified as type I, II, and III. It has been known that vWF concentration is affected by ABO blood group. The aim of this study is to determine reference value of vWF activities in Indonesian peoples. A cross-sectional study was conducted with 60 subjects of each O blood group and non-O blood group. The activities of vWF were determined by immune-turbidimetric method using Innovance VWF Ac Reagent and Sysmex CS-2100i coagulometer. The measurement principle was an increased turbidity due to agglutination after the addition of polystyrene particle coated with anti GP1b and recombinant GP1b (two gain-of-function mutations included) that bound to the antibody as well as to the vWF of the sample. The reference value of vWF activities in O blood group was 24.2% - 125.4% while in non-O blood group was 37.7% - 166.1%. There was a significant difference between vWF activities in the two groups (p < 0.005). Taken together, our study concluded that the vWF activities of blood group was significantly lower than non-O blood group.

Abstract : BACKGROUND: COVID-19 viral infection has become a global threat since the beginning of 2020. World Health Organization (WHO) has imposed universal recommendations for curfew to control the pandemic. This study designed to evaluate the perception of families within the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) as regards the effect of the curfew on their children. METHODOLOGY: A qualitative cross-sectional questionnaire-based study was performed. This questionnaire was designed in Arabic and distributed electronically among the GCC population with special emphasis on Saudi Arabia. RESULTS: The study included 2006 respondents with a female to male ratio of 5:1. One thousand five hundred twenty-seven of the participants have taught their children the proper etiquette of performing hand hygiene as well as sneezing and/or coughing. Yet, 372 did not consider social distancing as an important issue for their children to learn. Others (118) denoted pediatric unhealthy nutritional habits during the curfew. Overall, 609 of the participants reported the importance of extra supplementary nutrients during the lockdown. Breastfeeding was not a common practice among the participants. CONCLUSIONS: Lack of information among the participants was reported when concerning the crucial effects of dietary and activity habits on children’s immune system during the curfew era. This necessitates the implementation of extra instructional educational social strategies to overcome this defect.
