【Abstract】 The US Preventive Services Task Force updated its 2014 recommendation statement and issued the latest evidence report and systematic review of screening for cognitive impairment in older adults on JAMA,concluding that due to lack of sufficient evidence,the balance of benefits and harms of screening for cognitive impairment (MCI and mild to moderate dementia) of community-dwelling adults aged 65 years and older cannot be determined.More research is needed on the effect of screening and early detection of cognitive impairment.Moreover,a large amount of evidence for long-term follow-up and intervention for cognitive impairment patients and/or their caregivers is needed.In addition,reports on harms of cognitive impairment screening and interventions to participants and reasons for attrition of trial participants should be encouraged.Based on the new recommendation statement and current research status,we overviewed the definition,prevalence,risk and protective factors of cognitive impairment,early cognitive impairment screening instruments and their benefits and harms,and net benefit assessment of screening,treatment and intervention,future research suggestions,as well as the significance of the statement in guiding community-based screening and management of cognitive impairment.

【Abstract】 Background Monocyte to lymphocyte ratio(MLR),mean platelet volume to lymphocyte ratio(MPVLR),neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio(NLR) are all new markers of inflammatory response,which are related to the adverse outcomes in patients with acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction(STEMI).However,few studies at home and abroad have been found to explore the relationship between these hematological parameters,and the clinical value of the combination of them in predicting the prognosis of acute STEMI patients.Objective To investigate the clinical value of hematological parameters in predicting major adverse cardiovascular events(MACE) after percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI) in patients with acute STEMI.Methods A total of 524 patients who were diagnosed with acute STEMI and who underwent emergency PCI for the first time at the First Affiliated Hospital,School of Medicine,Shihezi University from August 2017 to February 2019 were enrolled.They were divided into MACE group and non-MACE group according to whether MACE occurred during the follow-up period.Baseline characteristics were collected,including age,proportions of males,smokers,diabetes,hypertension,and hyperlipidemia,Killip class of post-admission acute myocardial infarction-induced heart failure,admission GRACE score,pre-PCI clinical indicators〔fasting blood glucose,creatine kinase isoenzyme(CK-MB) peak,peak troponin T(TnT),total cholesterol,triacylglycerol,low-density lipoprotein,high-density lipoprotein,left ventricular ejection fraction,C-reactive protein(CRP),N-terminal brain natriuretic peptide precursor(NT-proBNP),white blood cell count,neutrophil count,lymphocyte count,hemoglobin,platelet count,monocyte count,MPV,MLR,MPVLR,NLR,red blood cell distribution width,platelet distribution width〕and culprit vessels detected by coronary angiography,number of stents,time from symptom onset to PCI,no-reflow prevalence,and medical treatment.Cox regression analysis was used to investigate the influencing factors of MACE in STEMI patients after PCI.The receiver operating characteristic curve was plotted to evaluate the predictive value of MLR,MPVLR and NLR,alone and in double-combination forms,for MACE after PCI in patients with acute STEMI.Results In this study,a total of 56 patients developed MACE during the follow-up period,including 23 cases of cardiogenic or all-cause death,15 cases of heart failure,7 cases of recurrent angina pectoris,5 cases of malignant arrhythmia,4 cases of recurrent myocardial infarction and 2 cases of stroke.Compared to those without MACE,MACE patients had greater mean age,higher mean admission GRACE score,peak TnT,CRP,NT-proBNP,neutrophil count,monocyte count,MPV,MLR,MPVLR,and NLR,and also a higher proportion of admission Killip class ≥Ⅱ.Moreover,MACE patients had lower levels of lymphocyte count as well as LVEF(P<0.05).And they had a higher no-reflow prevalence(P<0.05).Multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that lymphocyte count〔HR=0.884,95%CI(0.817,0.966),P<0.001〕,monocyte count〔HR=1.169,95%CI(1.104,1.463),P=0.009〕,MPV〔HR=1.333,95%CI(1.005,1.752),P=0.039〕,MLR〔HR=1.701,95%CI(1.332,2.172),P<0.001〕,MPVLR〔HR=1.372,95%CI(1.196,1.443),P<0.001〕and NLR〔HR=1.428,95%CI(1.037,1.576),P=0.015〕were the influencing factors of MACE in acute STEMI patients after PCI.MLR was positively correlated with NLR(rs=0.195,P<0.001) and MPVLR(rs=0.210,P<0.001).NLR was positively correlated with MPVLR(rs=0.483,P<0.001).MLR+NLR,MLR+MPVLR,or NLR+MPVLR was better than MLR,NLR,or MPVLR in predicting MACE after PCI in acute STEMI patients(P<0.05).Conclusion Hematological parameters such as MLR,MPVLR,and NLR shortly after admission are related to the prognosis of acute STEMI patients.And combined application of these hematological parameters can more effectively identify high-risk patients and predict the occurrence of MACE.

【Abstract】 Background Pediatric Critical Illness Score(PCIS) is widely used in evaluating severe pediatric patients.Glasgow Coma Scale(GCS) is recommended for the evaluation of brain function in critically ill patients.Electroencephalogram(EEG) monitoring is considered to be an important predictive method of brain injury.There are few reports about predicting the prognosis of children with severe viral encephalitis by PCIS in combination with GCS score and video EEG(VEEG) monitoring.Objective To explore the prognostic value of PCIS combined with GCS score and VEEG monitoring in severe viral encephalitis in children.Methods A retrospective analysis was conducted on 113 children with severe viral encephalitis treated in the ICU Ward,Yulin Maternal and Child Health Hospital between January 2013 and October 2018,including 37 with good prognosis(4-5 points) and 76 with poor prognosis(1-3 points) evaluated by the Child Glasgow Outcome Scale.The clinical data,CSF examination,PCIS,GCS score and VEEG of the two groups were compared to identify the risk factors for the prognosis of severe viral encephalitis.Values of PCIS,GCS score and VEEG monitoring,alone and in combination in predicting the prognosis of severe viral encephalitis were compared.Results In good prognosis group,18 cases were cured and 19 had mild sequelae.In contrast,in poor prognosis group,5 died,25 had severe sequelae,and 46 had moderate sequelae.Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that adverse prognostic factors for severe viral encephalitis were as follows:PCIS≤80,moderate VEEG abnormalities,and severe VEEG abnormalities(OR=12.626,512.020 and 160.712,P<0.05).And GCS score > 8 was associated with decreased risk of poor prognosis(OR=0.042,P<0.05).ROC curve analysis showed that the combination of GCS score,PCIS and VEEG monitoring had a larger AUC than GCS score(0.888 vs 0.615,Z=5.043),PCIS(0.888 vs 0.793,Z=2.834),VEEG monitoring(0.888 vs 0.705,Z=3.484) alone(P<0.05) in predicting the prognosis of severe viral encephalitis.And PCIS showed a greater AUC than GCS score(0.793 vs 0.615,Z=3.248,P=0.001).Conclusion In children with severe viral encephalitis,PCIS≤80 as well as moderate and severe VEEG abnormalities increased the risk of poor prognosis,while GCS score > 8 decreased the risk.The combination of PCIS,GCS score and VEEG monitoring showed higher accuracy than each alone in predicting the prognosis.

【Abstract】 Background Neonatal sepsis is one of the main causes of premature infant death,especially early-onset sepsis(EOS),so early diagnosis and timely treatment are particularly important.Blood culture is the gold standard in the diagnosis of sepsis,but the peripheral blood volume of newborns is limited.As the earliest blood sample after birth,the umbilical cord blood volume is sufficient and the collection is convenient.Objective To explore the clinical value of umbilical cord blood culture in preterm infants with EOS,and to observe the changes of inflammatory indexes in infants with positive results of blood culture,in order to provide a basis for the clinical treatment of EOS.Methods A total of 150 pairs of pregnant women who were suspected or diagnosed with intrauterine infection and their preterm infants(gestational age ≤37 weeks)were selected from the Second Hospital of Tianjin Medical University from June 2018 to June 2019,of which 102 premature infants were diagnosed with EOS.Umbilical cord blood was collected immediately and peripheral venous blood was collected for culture within 24 hours after infants were born.Inflammatory indicators were detected at 0-<24 h,24-<48 h,and 48-72 h after the birth of premature infants,including hypersensitive C-reactive protein(hs-CRP),procalcitonin(PCT),white blood cell count(WBC),and platelet count(PLT).The inflammatory indexes of premature infants with positive and negative results of cord blood culture were compared at different time periods mentioned above.After positive alarm of cord blood and peripheral blood culture,the bacterial identification was performed.The treatment and outcome of EOS infants with positive cord blood culture were recorded.Results There was no significant difference in the positive rates of cord blood culture〔19.6%(20/102)〕and peripheral blood culture〔16.7%(17/102)〕in infants with EOS(P>0.05),and the positive rates of cord blood culture and peripheral blood culture in infants without EOS were both 0.EOS infants with positive results of cord blood culture had a higher level of hs-CRP and PCT than those with negative results at 0-<24 h,24-<48 h,and 48-72 h(P<0.05).EOS infants with positive results of cord blood culture had a lower level of WBC than those with negative results at 0-<24 h(P<0.05).EOS infants with positive results of cord blood culture had a lower level of PLT than those with negative results at 48-72 h(P<0.05).A total of 20 pathogenic bacteria were identified in the cord blood culture of infants with EOS,including 15 strains of Gram-positive bacteria(including 10 strains of Staphylococcus,3 strains of Listeria monocytogenes,and 2 strains of Streptococcus lactis),and 5 Gram-negative strains(including 3 strains of Escherichia coli,1 strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae subpneumoniae,and 1 strain of Acinetobacter baumannii).A total of 17 pathogenic bacteria were identified in peripheral blood culture,of which 15 cases were consistent with the identification results of cord blood culture.Conclusion The positive rate of cord blood culture is similar to the positive rate of peripheral blood culture in infants with EOS,but cord blood is convenient for blood collection and has sufficient blood retention,which is conducive to the diagnosis of EOS.After the newborn is born,if hs-CRP and PCT increase,WBC and PLT decrease,suggesting that the infant may have EOS and antibiotics can be adjusted as appropriate.The anti-infective therapy,further diagnosis and treatment plan should be formulated after the bacterial culture results come out.

【Abstract】 Background In the 21st century,the incidence rate and mortality rate of malignant tumors are rising constantly,which imposes both mental and economic burdens on society and individuals.Therefore,the prevention and control of cancer are very important.Objective To perform a descriptive analysis of cancer death in Yingkou's urban residents from 2013 to 2018,offering a theoretical basis for the prevention and treatment of cancer in this city.Methods A retrospective design was used.From the mortality information system of Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention,death data of Yingkou's urban residents from January 1,2013 to December 31,2018 were obtained,among which cancer death data were extracted by using the ICD-10 code set.Crude mortality,standardized mortality,annual percentage of change (APC),potential years of life lost (PYLL),potential years of life lost rate (PYLLR) and average years of life lost (AYLL) were calculated.Excel 2007,DeathReg 2005,SPSS 17.0,Joinpoint 4.7.0.0 were used to analyze the cancer death and cancer-related loss of life years.A GM grey model was established to predict the cancer mortality in the 2019—2021.Results From 2013 to 2018,a total of 5 638 people died of cancer in Yingkou,with an average annual crude mortality rate of 210.89/100 000 and a standardized mortality rate of 162.47/100 000.The average annual crude mortality rate for men was 263.78/100 000,and the standardized mortality rate was 209.76/100 000;the average annual crude mortality rate for women was 159.71/100 000,and the standardized mortality rate was 120.23/100 000.The cancer mortality showed a significant upward trend in 16-50 years old (APC=16.42%,P<0.01),and the upward trend of mortality slowed down in over 50 years old (APC=8.03%,P<0.01).The six leading causes of cancer death were lung cancer,liver cancer,colorectal and anal cancer,gastric cancer,esophageal cancer and breast cancer.During this period,the mortality of colorectal and anal cancer showed an upward trend(APC=8.27%,P<0.01).PYLL and AYLL caused mainly by cancer were 21 948 person-years,and 10.79 years,respectively.The PYLL caused by lung cancer was the largest (8 327 person-years).And breast cancer (1 773 person-years) had the second largest impact on women's life expectancy after lung cancer (2 533 person-years).GM grey model predicted that the cancer mortality in Yingkou was 223.86/100 000 in 2019,227.63/100 000 in 2020 and 231.46/100 000 in 2021.Conclusion Among Yingkou's urban residents,cancer ranked the second leading cause of death.Men had higher mortality of major cancers than women except breast cancer.Liver cancer and breast cancer tended to be more prevalent in young people.It is predicted that the cancer mortality in Yingkou from 2019 to 2021 would be higher,with an increasing trend.Since cancer has become a serious threat to the health of urban residents in the city,relevant intervention and management should be strengthened.

【Abstract】 Background With the increase of life expectancy,the incidence of degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis(DLSS) in the elderly is increasing.DLSS generally requires surgical decompression.However,elderly patients are often complicated with many medical diseases,and the preoperative anesthesia assessment of spinal decompression for them is usually high risk.Many patients are unable to undergo open surgery under general anesthesia,and their daily life is obviously limited because of the disease.With the development and maturity of endoscopic decompression of spine,percutaneous endoscopic spinal decompression under local anesthesia may be a safe and effective treatment.Objective To investigate the clinical efficacy of percutaneous spinal endoscopy under local anesthesia for elderly DLSS patients with preoperatively assessed high risk for general anesthesia.Methods From December 2016 to April 2017,18 elderly patients with DLSS and treated with percutaneous endoscopic spinal decompression from Department of Orthopaedics,Hebei General Hospital were included.All were preoperatively assessed as having a high risk of general anesthesia(ASA P3-P4).16 cases were operated via a transforaminal approach,and other 2 cases were operated using a translaminar approach.Outcomes were evaluated by follow-up interviews at 6 weeks,6 months,1 year after the surgery.Low back pain and leg pain were measured by Visual Analog Scale(VAS) score.Functional outcomes were assessed by Oswestry Disability Index(ODI).Results The operation time was 30-81 minutes〔averaged(49.5±17.0) minutes〕.One patient had neck pain during the operation,but the symptom disappeared after discontinuation of the operation.There were no complications such as postoperative infection,intraspinal hematoma,lumbar instability,and so on.The coexisting medical diseases were stable during the perioperative period.VAS score of low back pain at 6 months and 1 year after operation was significantly lower than that of 6 weeks after operation(P<0.05).The VAS score of leg pain and ODI at 6 weeks,6 months and 1 year after operation were lower than those before operation(P<0.001).The ODI at 1 year after operation were lower than that of 6 weeks after operation(P<0.001).Conclusion  By relieving the physical pain and improving the functions for daily life,percutaneous spinal endoscopic decompression under local anesthesia has been proved to be effective for elderly DLSS patients at high risk for general anesthesia.
