Abstract : Brass flakes, dusts and fumes cause lung diseases are poised to become major health problem in brass sector. Cough, phlegm, chronic bronchitis and dyspnoea were significantly higher among brass workers. Therefore, this study is intended to explore the relation of socio-demographic and work related factors with respiratory health problems among brass industry workers in order to provide useful information for any possible brass flakes and gas control strategies. This was a cross sectional study aiming to assess the relation of socio-demographic characteristics and work related factors with respiratory health problems among workers of 10 brass industries of two villages, Kaissa para and Hindu para in Dhamrai upazilla, Dhaka, Bangladesh from 1st January 2017 to 31st December 2017. Total 124 sample was collected by convenient sampling technique. Among 113 respondents, 77% had been suffering respiratory health problems and rest of the participants 23% were healthy. About 9.7% were suffering from cough with phlegm for 3 months or more & rest of the respondents 90.3% were not suffering from cough with phlegm. About 96% were suffering from wheezing with shortness of breath, and 85% were not suffering from wheezing with shortness of breath. The policy makers and the factory owners should be concerned about the occupational health and safety problems of the workers specially the respiratory diseases due to brass flakes, dust and gas which would help to take necessary steps to overcome their respiratory problems.

Abstract : Appendicitis is considered as one of the most common abdominal conditions requiring surgical intervention. The appendectomy, like most surgical procedures, has its own complications and therefore should only be done when indicated. Case series have reported the incidence of negative appendectomy in many different parts of the world including western nations. A high rate of negative appendectomy is unacceptable. At the same time, surgeons should aim to prevent perforation at all costs. For this reason, considerable efforts are now being made to improve diagnostic accuracy and prevent unnecessary appendectomies. All case files of patients who underwent appendectomies at Al-Karak Teaching Hospital in Jordan between January 2014 and December 2015 were reviewed. Demographic data, symptoms, signs on presentation, intra-operative findings, and histological reports on the excised vermiform appendixes were extracted from the case files and analyzed. The incidence of negative appendectomy in our study was 18% with no difference in incidence between genders. The incidence of negative appendectomy observed at Al-Karak Teaching Hospital is near or around that reported by most studies. This alarming figure clearly indicates the need for accurate diagnostic procedures to confirm the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Further studies and evaluations are warranted.

Abstract : Government funded health systems are the hallmarks of welfare states. They always suffer from over-burden and are underfunded. This results in painful waiting lists and long clinics. In- order to reduce the sufferings of patients attending surgical outpatient clinic, innovative initiative of telephone clinic was taken five years ago. This study was conducted to assess success and find areas or groups requiring attention. A retrospective analysis of prospectively maintained database was done. First 1000 patients given appointment from January 2015 in telephone clinic were found using the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry (HIPE) reporting system. Characteristics regarding age, gender and procedure performed were recorded and the effect of these characteristics on attendance and outcome of clinic was analyzed to find any relation. The mean age of the patients in the study was 50.6 years with 477 males and 523 females comprising 47.7% and 52.3% respectively. The largest group was of 402 given appointment to outline their endoscopic findings followed by 198 patients who underwent laparoscopic procedures like appendectomies, hernias and adhesiolysis etc. Analysis found that out of the patients who attended the telephone clinic 71.5% were discharged after first appointment. There was no relation found between attendance, discharge based on gender p=0.51 and 0.60 respectively. But a statistically significant relation was found between attendance, discharges and “Millennial generation” p=0.029 and 0.002 respectively. Telephone clinics are safe, costeffective, convenient and a patient friendly alternative to conventional clinics. They are safe and convenient alternative to conventional clinic with comparable attendance.

Abstract : This manuscript provides a narrative review of Pathogenesis and transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID 19), proposes guidelines for dental practitioners and elaborate the currently available treatment strategies to fight the COVID 19 pandemic. Presently, the pandemic of COVID-19 caused by the latest strain of severe acute is highly infectious and is one of the biggest challenges faced by mankind. The hallmark of the infection is rapid human to human transmission by contact, and guidelines to prevent the virus dissemination is need of the hour. An electronic search was performed using PubMed, Scopus databases, Web of science databases. The selected articles were reviewed and cross checked for additional publications. The Data were generated with the following keywords: Pandemics, COVID 19, Diagnostics pf COVID-19, Dental Clinics, Aerosols, Infection Control, Personal Protective Equipment, Treatment of COVID-19. Dentists are at higher risk of acquiring the infection due to close facial contact with patients during dental procedures. The droplets and aerosols generated during clinical procedures are the major source of transmission. Therefore, dental clinics should adhere to strict infection control protocols and emergency dental procedures with donning of protective personal equipment. Saliva can be used as a potential non-invasive tool for early screening. Various clinical trials are underway to restrict the deadly pandemic.

Abstract : Within the premise of student-centered research, the OMFS training program, as the authors believe, could provide a rich area for exploration. It helps to engage students in their surgical training process and gives medical academics more information about this learning experience, as perceived by students. This, in turn, will influence the future development of this important qualification program. Study. A qualitative focus group study that included nine Iraqi (OMFS) fellowship students who were purposively selected. The focus group discussion lasted for one hour and 43 minutes. A Generic Qualitative Approach was chosen as the adopted methodology. Data were coded line by line and organized using the Framework Approach. Finally, the Constant Comparative Method was sketchily employed to uncover and comprehend the underlying patterns. Data analysis revealed that various themes had been incorporated chronologically into the students’ body of experience. These themes are shown in the study’s theoretical construct and comprise new professional challenge; new professional expertise; the influence of the mentor/ supervisor; a sense of accomplishment regarding prospective professional achievement; impediments; isolated voices. Maxillofacial surgical training brings a sense of achievement on both personal and career levels, due to the range of gained knowledge and expertise.
