Use of technology by nursing staff

Abstract : The purpose of this study was to collect information about the perceptions and knowledge of nurses regarding the use of health technology in Health Institutions in the Municipality of Shkodra. Cross-sectional methods were used, following a quantitative approach. The study assessed the following components: nurses' perceptions and willingness about information technology, and how these nurses were prepared to use information technology as a good opportunity to improve health care. The persons who

Accuracy of The Single Beat Method for Assessment of Mitral Valve Stenosis Severity in Atrial Fibrillation

Abstract : In mitral stenosis (MS) patients, determining stenosis severity in atrial fibrillation (AF) is time-consuming by averaging measurement by multiple cardiac cycles. Whether a single beat method can be used to measure the mitral valve area (MVA) and transmitral gradient for stenosis severity assessment in AF is still uncertain. Forty-eight MS patients with AF (mean age 46.8+8.6 years) underwent routine echocardiographic study. The MVA by pressure half time (PHT) and transmitral mean gradient were m

Biosynthesized Ag-nanoparticles activity against blaCTX, blaTEM entB, htrA of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from different clinical sources

Abstract : Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria were isolated from different sources; urine, blood, burns and wound swab, sputum, ear swabs, fluid, pus, endotracheal swabs, CSF and abscess of biopsy as (37, 24, 16, 9, 4, 3, 3, 2, and 1) % respectively. It showed different levels of antibiotic resistance with highest level of resistance against Ampicillin (100 %), also it showed that 53.13% of isolates were positive and 46.87% were negative for producing of β-lactamase. Biosynthesized Ag-NPs has inhibitory actio

Assessment of Preventive Measures against Covid 19 among Secondary Schools Students in Karbala City, 2022

Abstract : A variety of measures have been put in place in Iraq to slow the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there is still little information available about students' knowledge and practice during the pandemic of COVID-19. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate knowledge, practice, and related factors, among students at secondary schools in Karbala City Iraq, toward COVID-19. A cross-sectional study was conducted from 15 December 2021 to 29 March 2022, using a self-administra

Is Single Anastomosis Sleeve Ileal (SASI) bypass Superior to Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) among Obese Patients in Kirkuk City: A Retrospective Study?

Abstract : In the past twenty years, bariatric surgery has witnessed a huge demand by obese patients, especially those who suffer from related diseases. The current study aimed to compare the outcomes of a single anastomosis sleeve ileal bypass (SASI) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). In this cohort retrospective study, 80 obese adult patients who underwent bariatric surgery participated, 40 of them for SASI versus 40 others for LGS surgery in a private hospital in Kirkuk governorate, northern Ira

Study of Interleukinــ1β gene expression in diarrhea patients infected by Listeria monocytogenes

Abstract : Listeria monocytogenes is a gram-positive bacterium that infects individuals after consuming contaminated food and it’s linked to a high mortality rate worldwide. This experiment aimed to determine the gene expression of IL-1β in the small intestine in diarrhea patient exposed to L. monocytogenes. The investigation was carried out using the small intestine of rabbit injected with 1 ml of a 107 CFU/ml of L. monocytogenes, and small intestine of rabbit injected with 1 ml of PBS as a control. Ei

Relationship between vitamin D deficiency and arterial hypertension in Iraqi population

Abstract : High blood pressure is one of the main chronic diseases that can cause many other diseases of the cardiovascular system and eventually lead to death. The level of vitamin D in the body affects blood pressure indirectly. This study aims to know the type of Relationship between vitamin D deficiency and blood pressure in Iraqi patients. In this study, 220 patients were collected, and they were divided into two groups that, which included (130 patient groups were distributed into 70 males and 60 fem

The Impact of Coronavirus to Terrorist Offenders in Indonesia: Assessments on psychological risk profiles before and during pandemic

Abstract : City lockdowns during the Coronavirus pandemic were seen by terrorism networks as authorities’ attempt to limit people’s access to places of worship and secularise people, as well as a sign of a forthcoming apocalypse. Several arrestments of terror actors in Indonesia during the pandemic raised the question of whether the physical restrictions ever reduced the criminogenic risks of terrorist network’s members. This study aims to investigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on highly-cla


Abstract : Sepsis is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. The innate immune response is the first defense mechanism to prevent infection and fight the pathogen invasion. Cathelicidin is a part of the innate immune system that has antiendotoxin and anti infection functions. In recent study, low levels of cathelicidin are associated with the risk of sepsis and increased mortality. This is a cross-sectional study involved 22 sepsis subjects, 15 septic shock subjects, a

Expression of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α and Interleukin-6 in Aspergillus flavus Keratitis after Cryotherapy

Abstract : Fungal keratitis remains challenging due to its high incidence and potential complications that can lead to blindness. Early detection and early treatment of fungal keratitis are critical for avoiding vision-threatening complications. Cryotherapy can be a non-invasive and safe alternative therapy modality for fungal keratitis. This study aims to determine the effect of cryotherapy on corneal wound healing in a rat model of Aspergillus flavus keratitis using immunohistochemistry examination of TN
