While some contend that moonlighting affords trainees an opportunity to supplement their income and grants valuable educational opportunities, others argue that moonlighting interferes with the objectives needed to achieve during training. Gastroenterology fellowship programs must carefully balance the financial needs and autonomy that accompanies being a board-certified internist with the educational objectives of fellowship program. While post-graduate program policies vary widely, a paucity of data exists on the effects of moonlighting on medical trainees. In this article, we examine the pros and cons of moonlighting during gastroenterology fellowship.</p> Zachary Field Copyright (c) 2023 Hospital Administration and Medical Practices 2023-05-01 2023-05-01 2 10.54844/hamp.2023.0035 Respiratory and other systemic complications of coronavirus disease 2019 in adults: A narrative review <p>To review and summarize the health complications known to be caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and their<br />pathophysiology. A thorough search was conducted for articles on the complications of COVID-19 from December 30th, 2019<br />through November 20th, 2020. August using the PubMed, Google Scholar, and World Health Organization (WHO) databases.<br />and it was supplemented with inclusion of pertinent articles till May 30th, 2021 Articles that did not have patient data, those<br />which included data of patients &lt; 18 years of age, studies limited to pregnant patients, and studies limited to only specific<br />co-morbidities and organ dysfunctions were excluded to avoid selection bias and heterogeneity in study population. A total of<br />108 studies were included in the narrative review. These studies reported numerous complications of COVID-19 with the most<br />common being acute respiratory acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) (19.5%–72%), myocardial injury (13.6%–36%),<br />cytokine storm (5%–10%), acute kidney injury (AKI) (4%–54.7%), acute liver injury (14%–62.4%), and venous thromboembolism<br />(VTE) (4%–20%). Our review extensively illustrates the incidence, predictors, and pathophysiology of respiratory, cardiovascular,<br />immunological, hepatobiliary, coagulative, neurological, and renal complications of COVID-19. Enhancing the host immune<br />responses against viral infection and modulating the inflammatory responses, along with appropriate support of respiratory<br />function; as well as the management of complications involving multiple organ systems potential leading to multi-organ failure,<br />are all important aspects to be considered for the recovery of critically ill patients with COVID-19.</p> Kiran S.
