NCT ID: NCT05202769 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Non-invasive Monitoring of Vital Signs

Non-Invasive Vital Signs Monitoring (NIVS) Project

Start date: February 11, 2022
Study type: Observational

This study is aimed at non-invasive extraction of cardiovascular and respiratory parameters from red-green-blue (RGB) and thermal imaging cameras from patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. The main focus of this study is in assessing the feasibility of implementing such a camera-based system for prolonged monitoring of patients, identifying limiting factors which may interfere with accuracy or practical aspects of the system, and postulating solutions to overcoming these.

The Long Term Effects of COVID on Pulmonary Function

Start date: October 15, 2021
Study type: Observational

An observational cohort study of patients discharged from the ICU following admission with COVID19 infection, looking at their medical wellbeing 6 months after discharge from the ICU.

NCT ID: NCT05035589 Not yet recruiting - ARDS Clinical Trials

The Effect of Tocilizumab on Procalcitonin and Other Biochemical and Clinical Markers in the Setting of COVID-19 Pneumonia

Start date: September 20, 2021
Study type: Observational

This study aims to establish whether tocilizumab has any significant effect on procalcitonin levels on patients diagnosed with COVID-19 pneumonia requiring intensive care admission. The effects on other biochemical and clinical markers are also considered.

NCT ID: NCT04902768 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Congenital Heart Disease

Assessment of Patterns of Patient Reported Outcomes in Adults With Congenital Heart Disease - International Study II

Start date: August 1, 2019
Study type: Observational

This is an international, cross-sectional and descriptive study that aims to investigate differences in patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient-reported experience measures (PREMs) and that aims to explore the profile and healthcare needs of adults with congenital heart diseases.

NCT ID: NCT04775433 Recruiting - Physical Fitness Clinical Trials

'The Actual and Perceived Levels of Physical Fitness and Lifestyle Habits in University of Malta Students'

Start date: March 15, 2021
Study type: Observational

The ultimate goal for every health-care system is to have a healthy population by maintaining good physical fitness levels and lifestyle habits, including regular physical activity, good sleep quality, smoking and alcohol abstinence. The main components of physical fitness include body composition, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. National research based on actual and perceived physical fitness levels in University of Malta (UM) students where both physical and non-physical testing are included, is lacking. Also, to the knowledge of the researcher, no such research investigated the relationship between the actual and perceived levels of physical fitness with lifestyle habits (smoking, alcohol consumption and sleep). This study aims to investigate the correlation between the actual and perceived levels of physical fitness (body composition, cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance and flexibility) by physical and non-physical testing, the correlation between lifestyle patterns (smoking, alcohol consumption and sleep.

NCT ID: NCT04644978 Recruiting - Mental Illness Clinical Trials

European Study on the Attitude of Psychiatrists Towards Their Patients

Start date: July 29, 2020
Study type: Observational

Background: Many people think that people with mental disorders might be dangerous or unpredictable. These patients face various sources of disadvantages and experience discrimination on job interviews, in education, and housing. Mental health-related stigma (MHS) occurs not only within the public community, it is a growing issue among professionals as well. Aim: We designed a prospective, observational, multi-centre, international study of 35 European countries to investigate the MHS among medical specialists and trainees in the field of general adult and child and adolescent psychiatry. Methods: An internet-based, anonymous survey will measure the stigmatizing attitude by using the local version of the Opening Minds Stigma Scale for Health Care Providers. Presentation of the Results: The results of the research will be published in an international peer-reviewed journal. Furthermore, we will present the results on national and international conferences.

NCT ID: NCT04595123 Completed - Depression Clinical Trials

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic in Perinatal Mental Health (RISEUP-PPD-COVID-19)

Start date: June 15, 2020
Study type: Observational

Introduction: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a new pathology, declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization, which can have negative consequences for pregnant women and their newborns. It is estimated that 1 in 5 women will develop a mental illness in the perinatal period. COVID-19 pandemic has been associated with anxiety and depression in the population. The current pandemic is a unique stressor with potentially wide-ranging consequences in the perinatal period, but little is known about the impact of COVID-19 on perinatal mental health. Thus, the objective of this study is to explore the experiences of pregnant and new mothers during the current pandemic, particularly its impact on perinatal mental health (including depression, anxiety, PTSD and psychological distress). Methods: The study design is a prospective observational study, with a baseline assessment and three follow-ups: one month; three months; and six months post baseline. This international study will be carried out in 11 European countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Greece, Israel, Malta, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom) Chile and Brazil. The study population will comprise pregnant women and new mothers with an infant under six months of age, covering a broad range of women across the perinatal period. Ethics and dissemination: The study and handling of the data will follow all national required data protection standards. Each researcher (or team of researchers) involved will submit the project to their local ethical committee before starting the project. Results from the project will be disseminated in peer reviewed journals and international conferences.

NCT ID: NCT04360226 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Assessing the Utility of Peak Inspiratory Flow as a Predictor for COPD Exacerbations

Start date: December 14, 2020
Study type: Observational

This is an international, mulitcentre, observational, prospective study into Peak Inspiratory Flow in COPD patients that aims to: A) Determine the prevalence of suboptimal Peak Inspiratory Flow (PIF) and inadequate inhaler choice and assess the baseline characteristics of these groups. B) Assess the clinical role of PIF and inhaler choice in predicting COPD exacerbations and symptom burden. C) Assess the variability and correlation of PIF with other lung function measurements and CAT score in stable COPD. It is a 12 month study comprising one baseline assessment and 2 follow-up visits at 6 and 12 months.

NCT ID: NCT04206046 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Arthroplasty, Replacement, Knee

The Effect of Regional Anaesthesia and Genetic Factors in the Development of Chronic Pain Following Total Knee Arthroplasty

Start date: June 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The study aims to assess the effect of spinal anaesthesia against a general anaesthesia with a femoral block, with respect to the incidence of chronic pain following a total knee replacement. It will also focus on genetic factors and their influence on chronic pain.

NCT ID: NCT04165369 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

Observational Study to Evaluate the Epidemiology of Surgical-induced Acute Kidney Injury

Start date: June 9, 2020
Study type: Observational

The evaluation of an accurate occurrence rate for AKI is of great importance for health policy, quality initiatives as well as for designing clinical trials. The primary objective is to prospectively evaluate the incidence of AKI within 72 h after extended surgical procedures that require admission to an observation unit.
