Ultrasound measured Gastric Cross-Sectional Area in Critically-ill Children

Abstract : Monitoring gastric residual volume (GRV) and holding or interrupting enteral nutrition for large or elevated GRV has had a firm place in the recommendations of critical care nutrition guidelines. The present study aimed to assess the feasibility of measurement and the influence of critical illness on ultrasound-measured gastric CSA. 46 mechanically ventilated patients and 30 older adults were included in this prospective trial. All patients were subjected to careful history taking, thorough clin


Analysis of the effects of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy on weight loss and co-morbidities

Abstract : The sleeve gastrectomy was initially developed as the initial step in the gastric bypass procedure, it is now being carried out on its own an increasing amount. As a result, it is essential to report results on the reduction in the number of co-morbidities as well as weight loss. A continuous group of 80 patients diagnosed with morbid obesity were examined. The operative variables, the number of complications, the amount of weight loss, and the requirement for medication to treat co-morbidity at


Preparation, Identification and Characterization of Novel Schiff base Derived from Diamine and Aldehyde Derivatives and its Zn, Co, and Ni Metal Complexes

Abstract : Schiff bases and metal complexes have brought the attention of the researchers due to its wide application as bioactive and anticancer compounds. To synthesis new Schiff base derived from aldehyde and diamine derivatives and its three metal complexes (Zn, Co, Ni). The white crystalline Schiff base (1E,1'E)-N,N'-(ethane-1,2-diyl)bis(1-(4-chlorophenyl)methanimine) (E4CPMA) was synthesized from the reflux of one moles of ethane,1-2-diamine and 2 moles of 4-chlorobenzaldehyde. Te metal complexes wer


Effect of Sanrego (Lunasia amara Blanco) Stem Extract on Aphrodisiac Activity of Diabetes Mellitus Rats Induced by High-Fat Diet

Abstract : Complications of diabetes are commonly found including the decreased sexual ability for diabetic patients. A plant that is efficacious as an aphrodisiac and is known by people in South Sulawesi is the sanrego plant (Lunacia amara). The aim of this study is to determine the aphrodisiac effect of the ethanol extract of sanrego stems on diabetic rats induced by a high-fat diet. The research method was the post-test method by extracting sanrego stems with ethanol solvent, Wistar rats were fed a high


DM EXERCISE AS A STRATEGY TO MAINTAIN BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS IN TYPE II DM PATIENTS

Abstract : Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic disease characterized by an increase in blood sugar levels caused by damage to the pancreas gland as a producer of the hormone insulin, resulting in impaired metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. The aim is to analyze the application of diabetes exercise in clients who have diabetes mellitus. The research design is descriptive research, using case study method. Participants consisted of 2 clients who had type II diabetes mellitus, and were taking medicat


Relationship of Hematological Parameters with State of Heart Failure

Abstract : Anaemia is a common and important comorbidity in patients with chronic heart failure as demonstrated in some studies and is associated with poor outcomes, it is complex and multifactorial. To review some hematological parameters in relation to state of heart failure in term of echocardiographic parameters. A cross sectional hospital based study was to be performed during the period from 15th of February 2019 to 15th of December 2019 enrolling patients admitted to the medical ward, C.C.U. and eme


Design, Implementation & Evaluation of Communication Skill Module by Using ADDIE Instructional Framework to Enhance Basic Communication Skills among First Year Medical Undergraduates

Abstract : Having an open line of communication between doctors and their patients is crucial to provide excellent care. The importance of include lessons on how to effectively communicate as part of a student's undergraduate medical education cannot be overstated. As part of its mission to improve the quality of medical education in India, MCI/NMC planned to include the AETCOM module to the UG curriculum in 2019. This study's goals were to create, test, and refine the CS module by using ADDIE instructiona


COMPARISON OF TWO DIFFERENT NUTRITION SCREENING TOOLS TO IDENTIFY THE RISK OF HOSPITAL MALNUTRITION AMONG HOSPITALIZED CHILDREN IN INDONESIA

Abstract : Malnutrition among hospitalized children is often misdiagnosed and untreated. This study aimed to compare STRONGkids and PYMS screening tools for determining the risk of malnutrition in hospitalized children. This cross-sectional study was conducted among patients aged 2-to-18 years in tertiary-care hospitals in Indonesia. Demographic data, illnesses, and nutritional assessment based on STRONGkids and PYMS methods were measured within 24-48 hours of admission. The sensitivity, specificity, and p


The Potent of Radical Scavenging, Toxicity, and Apoptosis of Various Fractions of Marine Sponge Axinella aruensis from Kangean Islands

Abstract : A sponge of the family Axinellidae is a marine invertebrate with plenty of medical potential applications. The present study aimed to investigate the antioxidative, toxicity, and apoptotic effects of Axinella aruensis extracts and fractions, particularly from the Indonesian Kangean Islands. The sponge was extracted with methanol, then partitioned with hexane, ethyl acetate, butanol, and water. Each fraction was observed for its free radical scavenging properties to DPPH, toxicity, and apoptosis


Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Metabolite as a Potential Cell Therapy for Pseudomonas aeruginosa Keratitis

Abstract : Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis is the most common eye infection, that develops very rapidly and can lead to endophthalmitis and corneal perforation. Corneal wound healing process is determined by the balance of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1α) and Transforming Growth Factor-β (TGF-β) as “master regulator” cytokines. Mesenchymal stem cells can maintain the equilibrium of these two inflammatory cytokines. The study was to analyze the effect of
