Background
This study assessed the psychological impact of the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on university hospital nurses. It provides an assessment of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, distress, and burnout of nurses dealing directly and indirectly with COVID-19.
Methods
In a web-based, cross-sectional study, 111 nurses from Daegu Catholic University Hospital in Korea were enrolled from August 4 to August 9, 2020. Patient Health Questionnaire-9, Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7, Impact of Event Scale-Revised, and Maslach Burnout Inventory were used to assess the psychological symptoms of depression, anxiety, psychological distress, and burnout among the study participants.
Results
Of 111 nurses, 35 (31.5%), nine (8.1%), 26 (23.4%), and 49 (44.1%) experienced depression, anxiety, distress, and burnout, respectively. Nurses who performed COVID-19–related tasks were more likely to have moderate depression (related vs. unrelated, 52.0% vs. 25.6%; p=0.037). There were no differences in anxiety, distress, and burnout between nurses with and without COVID-19–related tasks. More than 50% of the participants showed receptive and positive attitudes toward caring for COVID-19 patients.
Conclusion
Nurses who performed COVID-19–related tasks had a higher risk of depression. There were no significant differences in anxiety, distress, and burnout between the two groups. Since nurses who perform COVID-19–related tasks are more prone to psychological distress, continued psychiatric interventions are required for infectious disease outbreaks with a high mortality rate for healthcare workers who are emotionally vulnerable.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Neurilemmoma is a benign and slowly growing neurogenic tumor. Intrathoracic neurilemmoma often develops in the chest wall and posterior mediastinum, but endobronchial neurilemmoma is extremely rare. The diagnosis of endobronchial neurilemmoma with preoperative imaging findings is challenging and is usually made via postoperative pathological examination. These authors encountered a case of primary endobronchial neurilemmoma in a 52-year-old woman who had no symptoms. A 3.0 x 2.6 cm mass in the right lower lobe projecting into the mediobasal segmental bronchus was shown in the results of the contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the chest. Benign neurilemmoma was confirmed via bronchoscopic biopsy, and surgical resection (sleeve bronchial excision and end-to-end anastomosis) was performed.
