Attitudes of Jordanian Anesthesiologists and Anesthesia Residents towards Artificial Intelligence: A Cross-Sectional Study

Success in integrating artificial intelligence (AI) in anesthesia depends on collaboration with anesthesiologists, respecting their expertise, and understanding their opinions. The aim of this study was to illustrate the confidence in AI integration in perioperative anesthetic care among Jordanian anesthesiologists and anesthesia residents working at tertiary teaching hospitals. This cross-sectional study was conducted via self-administered online questionnaire and includes 118 responses from 44 anesthesiologists and 74 anesthesia residents. We used a five-point Likert scale to investigate the confidence in AI’s role in different aspects of the perioperative period. A significant difference was found between anesthesiologists and anesthesia residents in confidence in the role of AI in operating room logistics and management, with an average score of 3.6 ± 1.3 among residents compared to 2.9 ± 1.4 among specialists (p = 0.012). The role of AI in event prediction under anesthesia scored 3.5 ± 1.4 among residents compared to 2.9 ± 1.4 among specialists (p = 0.032) and the role of AI in decision-making in anesthetic complications 3.3 ± 1.4 among residents and 2.8 ± 1.4 among specialists (p = 0.034). Also, 65 (55.1%) were concerned that the integration of AI will lead to less human–human interaction, while 81 (68.6%) believed that AI-based technology will lead to more adherence to guidelines. In conclusion, AI has the potential to be a revolutionary tool in anesthesia, and hesitancy towards increased dependency on this technology is decreasing with newer generations of practitioners.

Hemophilia in Jordan: An Economic Burden Dilemma of Rare Disease

Jordan is an upper-middle-income country with high expenditures on pharmaceuticals. The development of new rare disease (eg hemophilia) therapies has encountered significant obstacles with respect to economic the cost of the disease and treatment. The aim of this overview was to estimate current annual spending on hemophilia treatment in Jordan and estimate the financial impact of adapting a new medication (Emicizumab) recently used for treating hemophilia patients in Jordan. Methods based on the literature review, direct medical costs were quantified, required items’ costs from the actual practice in Jordan were elicited from an expert panel, and a focus group meeting with the same was conducted one month later to determine the current estimated number of hemophilia Patients in Jordan, identify current treatment on demand quantities and their prices. All related medical costs were also identified (eg bleeding, the estimated number of hospital days, and/or Intensive Care Unit per bleeding episodes). Estimation of the annual consumption of current on-demand treatment quantities and cost were calculated and compared with scenarios of adding the new therapy (Emicizumab). Results showed that the financial impact of using Emicizumab SC instead of Recombinant Factor VIIa IV on the budget of the Jordanian government will be 425,747 JOD ($601,338) annually. Conclusions the economic advantages of a new hemophilia treatment might be very substantial for patients.

The efficacy of bupivacaine infiltration along nephrostomy tract on postoperative pain control and opioid consumption after PCNL: a prospective randomized controlled trial.

OBJECTIVE: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a common endourological procedure for patients with large kidney stones, but the management of postoperative pain is still a major challenge. The aim of this clinical trial was to evaluate the efficacy of 0.25% bupivacaine infiltration along the nephrostomy tract on postoperative pain scores and analgesia consumption in patients who underwent PCNL. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 50 patients who underwent PCNL were enrolled in this prospective, randomized controlled trial (NCT04160936). Patients were prospectively randomized into two equal groups: the study group (n= 25) received 20 mL of 0.25% bupivacaine infiltration along the nephrostomy tract, whereas patients in the control group (n= 25) did not. Postoperative pain as the primary outcome was assessed by using a visual analogue scale (VAS) and a dynamic visual analogue scale (DVAS) at different time points. The secondary outcomes were the time for first opioid demands, the number of opioid demands, and the total opioid consumption over the 48 h postoperatively. RESULTS: There were no significant differences between the two groups regarding demographics, surgery, and stone characteristics. Patients in the study group had significantly less VAS and DVAS pain scores compared to the control group. The mean time of the first opioid demand in the study group was significantly longer as compared to the control group (7.1±2.5 h vs. 3.2±1.8 h, p< 0.001). The mean number of doses and total consumption of opioids were significantly less in the study group compared to the control group over 48 h (1.5±0.8 vs. 2.9±0.7 …

Dose-dependent effect of melatonin on bat thermogenesis in zücker diabetic fatty rat: future clinical implications for obesity

Experimental data have revealed that melatonin at high doses reduced obesity and improved metabolic outcomes in experimental models of obesity, mainly by enhancing brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis. A potential dose-response relationship has yet to be performed to translate these promising findings into potential clinical therapy. This study aimed to assess the effects of different doses of melatonin on interscapular BAT (iBAT) thermogenic capacity in Zücker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats. At 6 wk of age, male ZDF rats were divided into four groups (n = 4 per group): control and those treated with different doses of melatonin (0.1, 1, and 10 mg/kg of body weight) in their drinking water for 6 wk. Body weight (BW) was significantly decreased at doses of 1 and 10 mg/kg of melatonin, but not at 0.1 mg/kg compared with the control, with a similar rate of BW decrease being reached at the dose of 1 mg/kg (by ~11%) and 10 mg/kg (by ~12%). This effect was associated with a dose-dependent increase in the thermal response to the baseline condition or acute cold challenge in the interscapular area measurable by infrared thermography, with the highest thermal response being recorded at the 10 mg/kg dose. Upon histology, melatonin treatment markedly restored the typical brownish appearance of the tissue and promoted a shift in size distribution toward smaller adipocytes in a dose-dependent fashion, with the most pronounced brownish phenotype being observed at 10 mg/kg of melatonin. As a hallmark of thermogenesis, the protein level of uncoupled protein 1 (UCP1) from immunofluorescence and Western blot analysis increased significantly …

Synthesis and Characterization of a Ti–Zr‐Based Alloy with Ultralow Young's Modulus and Excellent Biocompatibility

Recently, metastable β‐type Ti alloys have attracted attention as promising materials for medical implants due to low Young's modulus and superior biocompatibility. The former is dependent on texture developed during the thermomechanical process. Herein, new Ti–Zr–Nb–Sn–Mo alloys with ultralow Young's modulus and excellent biocompatibility are developed as promising materials for medical implants. The effect of Mo on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the Ti–18Zr–5Nb–3Sn system is investigated. X‐ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) results reveal that Mo acts as a β‐phase stabilizer. Moreover, mechanical behavior and recrystallization texture show strong composition dependence; the 2.5Mo alloy shows the lowest Young's modulus of 40 GPa. This is due to the formation of a recrystallization texture with strong Goss component of <001>. Corrosion behavior of …

Pain in preterm infants: Different perspectives

In the last decades, there has been a tremendous change in approaching and managing neonates' pain. These changes began with rebutting the previous misconception about neonates' , particularly preterm infants' , pain. The development in neuroimaging has revealed that by 24 weeks of gestation the peripheral nervous system is mature and function fully. Researchers now know that neonates experience pain and premature infants have even lower pain thresholds. Since that time, a mounting amount of literature has addressed the issue of neonatal pain. Many pharmacological and non pharmacological pain reduction strategies have been investigated for their safety and analgesic effectiveness. Many interventions such as nonnutritive sucking (NNS), skin-to-skin contact (SSC), and facilitated tucking are effective in controlling neonates pain.

Hesitancy towards covid-19 vaccines: An analytical cross–sectional study

Vaccination is the most promising strategy to counter the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Vaccine hesitancy is a serious global phenomenon, and therefore the aim of this cross-sectional study was to explore the effect of educational background, work field, and social media on attitudes towards vaccination in Jordan. We compared between medical personnel who were in direct contact with patients and non-medical individuals at Jordan University Hospital in terms of demographics, knowledge about COVID-19 vaccines, rumors received via social media, their trust in these vaccines, and the encouraging factors for vaccination. 646 individuals were enrolled in this study, of which 287 (44.4%) were from medical field, and 359 (55.6%) from non-medical field. 226 (35%) were planning to take the vaccine once available, with a positive response from 131 (45.6%) medical field workers, compared to 94 (26.2%) non-medical individuals (p < 0.001). The social media rumor that was believed the most was the unsafety of these vaccines (n = 283; 43.8%). Only 163 (56.8%) of medical persons did not believe any of the circulated rumors, compared to 126 (35.1%) of non-medical persons (p < 0.001). The effect of medical personnel advice (OR = 0.83; 95% CI = 0.70 to 0.98; p = 0.026) and social media (OR = 1.21; 95% CI = 1.04 to 1.41; p = 0.012) were significantly associated with the willingness to take COVID-19 vaccine once available. In conclusion, medical personnel and social media play a crucial role in increasing the society’s inclination towards vaccination by providing the community with updated evidence-based information about …

Preparedness of frontline doctors in Jordan healthcare facilities to COVID-19 outbreak

The number of COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease of 2019) cases in Jordan is rising rapidly. A serious threat to the healthcare system appears on the horizon. Our study aims to evaluate preparedness of Jordanian frontline doctors to the worsening scenario. It has a questionnaire-based cross-sectional structure. The questionnaire was designed to evaluate preparedness according to knowledge about virus transmission and protective measures, adherence to protection guidelines, and psychological impacts affecting doctors. Institutional factors affecting doctors’ readiness like adopting approach protocols and making protection equipment available were investigated; 308 doctors from different healthcare facilities participated (response rate: 53.9%). Approximately 25% of doctors (n = 77) previously took care of COVID-19 patients, and 173 (56.2%) have institutional COVID-19 approach protocols. Only 57 doctors (18.5%) reported all PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) available. The self-reported score of preparedness to deal with COVID-19 patients was 4.9 ± 2.4. Doctors having institutional protocols for dealing with COVID-19 cases and those with sustained availability of PPE reported higher scores of preparedness (5.5 ± 2.3 and 6.2 ± 2.1 with p < 0.001, respectively). Correlations with knowledge score, adherence to PPE score, and psychological impacts were investigated. The study revealed multiple challenges and insufficiencies that can affect frontline doctors’ preparedness. Policy makers are urged to take these findings into consideration and to act promptly.
