However, there was no statistical difference between acupressure treatment and placebo (acupressure at nonacupressure points) groups. Because fatigue and poor sleep is often accompanied by depressive symptoms, Tsay (2004) reported that the application of 12-minutes of acupressure at SP 6, GB 34, ST 36, and KD 1 three times a week for four weeks reduced fatigue and depression, and improved sleep quality in patients with ESRD (n = 106) when compared to a control group (p <
From ur study, we found that there is no significant rise in IOP with LMA insertion whereas ETT intubation produced a significant raise which persisted for two minutes. Today, LMA has come to be widely used as an alternative airway device during daycare anesthesia. The LMA has become a very attractive alternative to endotracheal tube. In this study, the efficacy of LMA in reducing IOP during ophthalmic surgeries in children is compared with that of conventional endotracheal
In Texas grading system of the wound, there was indication of improvement (marginally significant (P < 0.09) in the second visit and there was a highly significant change in the second visit after 30 days of post test (P < 0.001). The Wagner scale of wound grading system the wound was classified in pre-test and post test one after 15 days and post test two after 30 days. The result showed there was no significant change in all three visits of both treatment groups. This Wagner tool result showed herbal treatment to be better but statistically not very
He reported that the intervals between the episodes of biliary colic decreased from one time every 10 days until it became daily. Also, the attack of biliary colic was relieved by intramuscular injection of antispasmodics and analgesics at first, but they weren’t effective anymore. The option of cholecystectomy was discussed and the patient agreed. Pre-operative laboratory investigations revealed normal kidney function, normal blood picture and elevated liver enzymes and elevated bilirubin (AST=174 u/L), (ALT=399 u/L), (GGT=206 u/L), (Alkaline phosphatase=147 u/L), (Direct bilirubin=2.0 mg/dl) and (Indirect bilirubin= 0.6 mg/dl). The patient was admitted to gastrointestinal endoscopy unit for Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
It has nicotine just like the traditional cigarettes but it is less harmful. In fact according to 2012 study entitled Levels of selected carcinogens and toxicants in vapor from electronic cigarettes, they found out that the levels of toxicants, ninr (9) to four hundred fitfty (450) it is times lower that in cigarettes.
Other physical examination findings were normal. The patient had no known chronic illnes. But he had history of taking alcohol 20-40 gr / daily and smoking 1-2 pockets / daily for 40 years. He had no special family history. Patient’s laboratory findings were ; creatinin: 1.02 mg/dl, albumin: 2.9 mg/dl, Total bilurubin: 4.0 mg/dl, ALT:22 IU/L AST:20 IU/L, hemoglobin:10.6 gr/dl, platelet: 232.000, protrombin time: 18.7 sn, INR: 1.37, serum protein elektrophoresis: beta-gamma bridging, serum-ascites albumin gradient: 2.1 gr/dl, AFP: 6000 IU/ml, CA 19.9-CA 125-CEA: negatif, HBsAg (+), HBeAg (-), HBV DNA: 61.700 IU/ml, HDV (-), AntiHCV (-), markers for otoimmun hepatites and other etiological tests were negative.
In terms of asthma control, the confidence interval on the mean of a normal distribution (=0,05) in this sample group is 17,87 ≤ CI 95% ≤ 21,41. Results show that asthma control is comparatively better in children aged 6-12 than in children aged 13-16. The summary data from asthma control tests administered to both groups is on the borderline between the categories “partially controlled” and uncontrolled” (19,83). A follow-up CACT test was administered to 107 participants after their parents had been counselled by pharmacists in accordance with our algorithm. Seven participants in the baseline test voluntarily withdrew from the study before the follow-up test.
Moreover, a significant decline in glucose, triacylglycerols and cholesterol with a percentage of 48.6%, 43.5% and 28.6% respectively was found in the diabetic group treated with the highest dose of blackberry juice (25%) when compared to the diabetic group treated with water only. However, the biochemical parameters of kidney function did not affected by blackberry consumption. In addition, the plasma antioxidant capacity (PAC) values shown indicated that regularly consumption of blackberry promotes the antioxidant capacity to intermediate levels. This effect was distinct when the non-diabetic group that treated with blackberry beverage only lost their PAC in a percentage of around 4 to 5% compared to the non-diabetic group that treated with water which had lost 12% of their PAC. Although decrease in levels of lipid peroxidation in plasma and kidney to intermediate levels with a percentage of 7.5% and 19% respectively was observed in the diabetic group treated with 12.5% of blackberry beverage, but generally, the values are not statistically different if compared with the diabetic group treated only with water.
Although two uncontrolled, non-comparative studies of high-dose BTX-A (200 U of Botox® in each axilla) described efficacy for as long as 29 months,[140,191] most other studies suggest little significant improvement with dosing >50 U per axilla. [56,85,144-146] One large randomized, double-bling, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial comparing 50 U and 75 U Botox® with placebo found no significant difference in the efficacy or duration of action with the higher Botox® dosage, and both doses were significantly better than placebo.  One report incurporated the use of hyaluronidase to facilitate spread and lower the overall dose of BTX-A
