  • The bioethical inquiry about allocating fairly scarce health resources is not new, all countries around the world that were seriously afflicted by SARS-CoV-2 have issued triage guidelines in order to address the dilemmas raised by the pandemic.

  • Cervical self-sampling yields useful cytology. [Journal Article]
    BJOG. 2020 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Denton KJ
  • Effective Cervical screening involves a complex sequence of interactions between women, clinical staff and systems. Even in well organised screening programmes, achieving high population coverage is challenging. The transition to using Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) testing as the primary screening modality, rather than cytology, has introduced the possibility of using a self-collected sample for th…
  • Risk prediction in acute medical care: the potassium story. [Journal Article]
    Acute Med. 2019; 18(1):2-3.Fløjstrup M, Brabrand M
  • The increased demand for secondary healthcare services has led to overflow in emergency departments and acute medical units throughout the world. And, as all patients therefore cannot be seen at once, most departments have introduced triage by experienced nurses at arrival. Triage is meant to predict time to be seen by a qualified healthcare professional and not - necessarily - to predict outcome.
  • Sweet syndrome with pulmonary involvement in a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome. [Journal Article]

  • We report a patient with Sweet syndrome involving the pulmonary system in the context of myelodysplastic syndrome. Although Sweet syndrome may involve a variety of organ systems, the pulmonary system is rarely affected and can result in poor clinical outcomes, including acute respiratory distress syndrome. Both cutaneous and pulmonary symptoms respond well to systemic corticosteroid therapy and e…
  • [The importance of triage in dental trauma. De differences between the hospital and dental practice]. [Journal Article]
    Ned Tijdschr Tandheelkd. 2020 May; 127(5):302-308.Dubois L, Helmers R, Braun AK
  • In dental trauma, the first thought is often: 'Where is that tooth?' And, of course, it is certainly true that fast repositioning is beneficial for the prognosis of the tooth. Nevertheless, it is extremely important to focus on the condition of the patient before focussing on the treatment. A structured approach is mandatory for optimal diagnosis and treatment. This includes possible concomitant …
  • Gastrointestinal Malignancies and the COVID-19 Pandemic: Evidence-Based Triage to Surgery. [Review]
    J Gastrointest Surg. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Fligor SC, Wang S, … Callery MP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Moderate evidence suggests that delayed resection of colorectal cancer worsens survival; the impact of time to surgery on gastric and pancreatic cancer outcomes is uncertain. Early resection of gastrointestinal malignancies provides the best chance for curative therapy. During the COVID-19 pandemic, prioritization of procedures should account for available evidence on time to surgery and oncologic outcomes.

Italy is one of the most affected countries in Europe. COVID-19 is a new challenge in modern dentistry. New guidelines are required in dental clinics to avoid contagion caused by cross-infections.

  • Agents and Robots for Collaborating and Supporting Physicians in Healthcare Scenarios. [Journal Article]
    J Biomed Inform. 2020 Jun 27 [Online ahead of print]Lanza F, Seidita V, Chella A
  • Monitoring patients through robotics telehealth systems is an interesting scenario where patients' conditions, and their environment, are dynamic and unknown variables. We propose to improve telehealth systems' features to include the ability to serve patients with their needs, operating as human caregivers. The objective is to support the independent living of patients at home without losing the…
