New articles in the GANM Library - COVID-19 Control, Decreased Fetal Movement, and Fatigue in Nursing

Apr 12, 2021

Dear GANM community,

 

In this week’s edition of the GANM Research Library Brief we would like to share three articles centering around the topics of COVID-19 control measures, pregnancy outcomes and decreased fetal movements, and fatigue in the nursing profession!

 

 

Movsisyan A, Burns J, Biallas R, et al. (2021). Travel-related control measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic: An evidence map BMJ Open, 11:e041619. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2020-041619

 

In a recently published article, researchers sought to map the existing evidence of travel-related control measures in order to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Included were 122 studies from across the globe focusing on COVID-19 as it related to border closures, screening quarantine, and travel bans and restrictions. In addition, most studies sought to address infectious diseases and screen outcomes while very few discussed economic and social outcomes. Overall, there was a heterogeneous base of information. This study showed gaps in evidence related to control measures, all of which should be addressed to inform future research and help better combat infectious diseases.

For childbearing individuals presenting with decreased fetal movements (DFM), what are the outcomes? This is the question recently looked into in a new article published in JAMA. In this cohort study, approximately 100,00 women were included and DFM was not associated with an increased risk of stillbirth. However, results show an increased risk for SGA or small for gestational age, planned early term birth, operative birth of any kind, and ultimately adverse perinatal outcomes. This eludes to the idea that DFM is a marker of increased risk for a fetus.

El año 2020 fue declarado el año de la enfermera y de la partera por la Organización Mundial de la Salud. Este año representó muy impactante para el rubro de la salud a raíz de la pandemia del COVID-19. El articulo de esta semana reflexiona en las circunstancias en las cuales las enfermeras Colombianas tuvieron que trabajar durante la pandemia y hace un análisis de los efectos de las condiciones de trabajo; particularmente enfocándose en la fatiga por compasión, el síndrome de burnout y como estas circunstancias han afectado la calidad de vida del equipo de enfermería.
