In Bulgaria, vaccination coverage against the SARS-CoV-2 virus is low. The reasons for this fact are many and varied. The aim of the present study was to establish what the attitudes towards the COVID-19 vaccination process are among students from various specialties from several Bulgarian universities. In this research, 600 students participated, divided into two groups: Doctor of Medicine (MD) students (n = 300) and non-MD students, i.e., students of specialties, such as mathematics, engineering, finance and economics, law, human sciences, etc. (n = 300). Each respondent completed a quest
Although continuous positive airway pressure is the gold standard for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), it does not improve obesity. By contrast, bariatric surgery significantly improves obesity but with sustained OSA in the majority of patients. This study proposes a comprehensive technique—combined airway and bariatric surgery (CABS)—to improve both obesity and OSA. The aims of the study are to evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of CABS in morbidly obese OSA patients. The retrospective study enrolled 20 morbidly obese OSA patients (13 males; median age, 44 years; media
This study carried out an integrative review in order to identify the prevention and treatment of Burnout syndrome, as well as to analyze the response of this strategy. A search was carried out on the journals portal, using the following descriptor-treatment and burnout., 73 abstracts were selected for reading and at the end 18 articles were included. To prevent and treat Burnout syndrome, it is important to change the organization, the team's posture and the strengthening of individual coping.

To outline treatment considerations and outcomes for a cohort of patients with forniceal rupture with the aim of adding to a very limited body of literature regarding clinical practice in this area. We retrospectively searched all radiographic records for patients treated at our institution between January 2009 and January 2016 with forniceal rupture. We compiled demographic data, etiology, clinical factors, treatments, and outcomes. Of the 103 patients analyzed, the median age at presentation was 64 years (interquartile range 52-73), and 56 (54%) were female. The etiology of forniceal rupt
Higher COVID-19 incidence and mortality rates in rural than in urban areas are well documented (1). These disparities persisted during the B.1.617.2 (Delta) and B.1.1.529 (Omicron) variant surges during late 2021 and early 2022 (1,2). Rural populations tend to be older (aged ≥65 years) and uninsured and are more likely to have underlying medical conditions and live farther from facilities that provide tertiary medical care, placing them at higher risk for adverse COVID-19 outcomes (2). To better understand COVID-19 vaccination disparities between urban and rural populations, CDC analyzed
