Indices of Renal impairment in patients with Atrial Fibrillation

Abstract : Atrial fibrillation is the commonest type of arrhythmias with significant mortality and morbidities. There is a correlation between AF and renal impairment and this correlation is complex and may be a manifestation of cardiorenal syndrome, a bidirectional complication of these diseases or its treatment or both coexist in same disease. To evaluate frequency of renal indices abnormality among patients with atrial fibrillation. By using cross sectional descriptive study, randomly selected 52 atrial

Functional Capacity Changes After Cardiac Rehabilitation Program as A Quality of Life Predictor in Left Ventricular Dysfunction Patients Who Underwent Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Abstract : For Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) accompanied by decreased left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was the preferred management and superior to pharmacological therapy alone. Health assessment related to the quality of life in patients with CAD and post-CABG is important and intended for evaluating the acquisition of the therapeutic target. Based on the guidelines, treatments of CAD should be accompanied by lifestyle modification and cardia

Detection of Extended-spectrum β-lactamases Genes in the Zoonotic Brucella abortus

Abstract : Brucellosis is a frequent infectious zoonosis over the world, intimidating both veterinary and human public health. The misuse and overuse of antibiotics in Iraq in the veterinary field is associated with the high rate of antibiotic resistance that observed in some zoonotic bacteria directing to cause serious infections in human. The point of this study; is to determine the occurrence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) -producing Brucella abortus in the blood of cattle. One hundred blo

The Effect of an Animation Video on Pain Response of 3-6 Years Old during Injection Intravenous

Abstract : Animated videos are one of the easiest ways to play when the child receives a medicine injection via an intravenous catheter that might reduce pain response. This study aimed to determine the effect of animation video on pain response for 3-6 years old during injection medicine via intravenous catheters. The study employed a quasi-experimental pre-test - post-test design. The intervention group (n: 107) was provided with an animation video during intravenous therapy, and the control group (n: 10

Evaluation of the locally applied doxycycline on alveolar osteitis incidence following surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars

Abstract : One of the most common oral procedures carried out every day in oral and maxillofacial surgery units is the surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars. After the impacted mandibular third molar has been removed, postoperative morbidity is unavoidable. Alveolar osteitis, a painful, unhealed socket, is one of the most frequent surgical sequelae. By introducing and applying a new material inside the extraction socket, many researches were attempted to prevent the development of alveolar o

Effectiveness of locally applied clindamycin on the occurrence of alveolar osteitis following surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars. A comparative study

Abstract : One of the most frequent procedures in oral surgery units is the removal of a partially or completely impacted mandibular third molar under local anesthesia and it directly affects the patient's quality of life. The aim of this study is to make a comparison between the effect of the locally applied clindamycin and the systemic clindamycin on occurrence of postoperative alveolar osteitis following surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars. Fifty patients who had undergone the surgical

Association between BsmI (rs1544410) and TaqI (rs731236) VDR Gene Polymorphisms with Vitamin D Status in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients

Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) arises due to combination of modifiable and non-modifiable. One of the modifiable risk factors is vitamin D concentration, which is associated with the incidence of T2DM and mediated by the vitamin D receptor (VDR). The aim of this study is to see the association between BsmI (rs1544410) and TaqI (rs731236) VDR gene polymorphisms with vitamin D status in T2DM patients in the city of Medan, Indonesia. 76 T2DM patients were enrolled in this study. The vitamin D leve

Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia L.) Affects the Pharmacokinetics Profile of Metformin in Rabbits’ Plasma

Abstract : The drug-herb combination between metformin and bitter gourd needs further study of the benefits and risks. This study aims to explore metformin in plasma samples using the HPLC method and its pharmacokinetic profiles affected by the bitter gourd. This experimental method study with a post-test randomized controlled group design. Healthy albino rabbits were divided into three groups (n=3). They were administered with bitter gourd juice 100% (4 ml/kg BW) and metformin (BM1), bitter gourd juice 50

The Effectiveness of Education on Farmer Knowledge and Behaviors towards COVID-19 Prevention: A Study in an Agricultural Area

Abstract : Following the healthcare and sanitation protocol has been widely used to prevent COVID-19 transmission. The research objective was to determine the effectiveness of WASH educational collaboration on farmers as an attempt to COVID-19 prevention. This study was an observational pre-experimental pretest-posttest design study without a control group. This research was carried out in March 2021, located in two districts with high COVID-19 positive cases, Johan Pahlawan and Meureubo Districts, West Ac


Abstract : Malaria incidence has declined in Indonesia for years, but it is still found a foci malaria in forest areas. Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) has been used as a diagnostic tool in remote forest areas because other tests are difficult to carry out due to poor infrastructure. Microscopic examination requires expert personnel to determine the right interpretation. The disadvantage of both methods of diagnosis is that they cannot detect the low density of parasites, causing the diagnosis to be missed. Fo
