Background The COVID-19 pandemic poses a critical global public health crisis. Operating room (OR) best practice in this crisis is poorly defined. This systematic review was performed to identify contemporary evidence relating to OR practice in the context of COVID-19. Methods Medline was systematically searched using PubMed (search date March 19, 2020) for relevant studies in accordance with PRISMA guidelines. Documented practices and guidance were assessed to determine Oxford levels of evidenc...

Introduction Operating room (OR) practice during the COVID-19 pandemic is driven by basic principles, shared experience, and nascent literature. This study aimed to identify the knowledge needs of the global OR workforce, and characterise supportive evidence to establish consensus. Methods A rapid, modified Delphi exercise was performed, open to all stakeholders, informed via an online international collaborative evaluation. Results The consensus exercise was completed by 339 individuals from 41...

Abstract The current Australian sugarcane industry transition toward adoption of an ‘alternative’ herbicide strategy as part of improved environmental stewardship is increasingly complicated by recent farming system, regulatory and herbicidal product changes. This study quantified and compared the efficacy, economic costs and environmental risk profiles of a range of established, emerging, and recently registered pre-emergent herbicides across field trials in the Wet Tropics region of North Quee...

Abstract An operational method to assess trends in marine water composition and ecosystem health during flood periods has been developed for the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Queensland, Australia. This method integrates satellite water colour data with field water quality and ecosystem monitoring data and involves the classification of Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS satellite) pixels into six distinct water bodies using a “wet season” colour scale developed specifically for th...

Modern water quality gradients on the inner-shelf of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) are influenced by catchment modification and increased terrigenous suspended sediment delivery. Proxy-based reconstructions of terrestrial sediment discharge are critical to trace the environmental drivers that modulate inshore water quality and to quantify the magnitude and timing of major changes. In this study we present high-resolution Porites coral rare earth element (REE) data over the period 1987–2012 from i...

Determining the source of sediments and associated nutrients fromterrestrial to aquatic environments is critical for managing the detrimental impacts of soil erosion and loss of nutrients from terrestrial into aquatic environment. However, tracing the source of particulate nutrients from different land uses has not been adequately carried out due to methodological difficulties in separating sources, particularly in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) catchment. The objective of this study was to develo...

Coral reefs globally are impacted by natural and anthropogenic stressors that are compounded by climate change. Understanding past reef responses to natural stressors (cyclones, sea-level change, freshwater inputs, and sedimentation) can provide important insights to further understand recent (within the past century) trends in coral cover and diversity. Here we use a compilation of recently published data to investigate the Holocene development of five fringing reefs that are located on a cross...

Abstract Studies documenting the effects of land-derived suspended particulate matter (SPM, i.e., particulate organic matter and mineral sediment) on marine ecosystems are typically disconnected from terrestrial studies that determine their origin, transport and fate. This study reviews sources, transport, transformations, fate and effects of SPM along the ‘ridge-to-reef’ continuum. We show that some of the SPM can be transported over long distances and transformed into large and easily resuspen...

We thank the crew of the R.V Cape Ferguson and Line Bay, Australian Institute of Marine Science for the collection of coral cores. Yi Hu and Shane Askew from the Advanced Analytical Centre, James Cook University analyzed the water samples and performed the scanning electron microscopy on the corals from Havannah Island, respectively. The water samples collected between 2007 and 2010 were collected with the support of the Australian Government's Marine and Tropical Sciences Research Facility gran...
