COVID-19 caused a worldwide pandemic and there are still many uncertainties about the disease. C-reactive protein (CRP) levels could be utilized as a prognosticator for disease severity in COVID-19 patients. This study aims to determine whether CRP levels are correlated with COVID-19 patient outcomes and length of stay.
Cardiac surgery with median sternotomy causes iatrogenic damage to the function of the diaphragm muscle that is both temporary and permanent. Myocardial infarction itself causes diaphragmatic genetic alterations, which lead the muscle to nonphysiological adaptation. This article reviews the neurophysiological relationships of the diaphragm muscle and the symptoms of diaphragmatic contractile dysfunction, and the authors discuss a scientific basis for the use of a new noninstrumental diaphragmatic test in the hope of stimulating research.
