Abstract : In recent years’ obesity has become a major health problem across all age groups. The life style changes and habits aggravated the prevalence of obesity especially childhood obesity. Many studies have suggested that serotonin has been linked with the occurrence of obesity along with various other factors. The serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) studies have been increasing in the recent time and based on these we aimed to study the relation of serotonin allele’s expression with Body mass index of university students. The study was a case control involving 66 participants done in Biochemistry department, RAK Medical and Health Sciences University, Ras Al Khamiah. Using a standardized questionnaire, the diet history was taken and using this we calculated the calorie intake. The saliva was collected and using the manufactures guidelines the DNA has been extracted using DNA Genotek kit. The polymerase chain reaction used to detect the polymorphism in the subjects using forward and reverse primers. Finally, DNA gel electrophoresis done to detect the alleles in different subjects. The study results showed that BMI, Waist circumference and body weight percentage was significant in overweight and obese subjects. The most common alleles in normal subjects was SS when compared with overweight and obese showing SL, LL. Our study was in accordance with other studies which showed L allele associate with obesity. There were some other showed contrary results which we didn’t find in present study. We suggest that, L allele associate is a risk and can be used to asses/predict the obesity..

Abstract : To study the effect of intravenous esmolol on intraoperative analgesic requirements in laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anaesthesia the study was carried out in 80 patients after obtaining consent from the patients who were divided into two groups, group e (esmolol) and group p (isotonic saline). haemodynamic parameters, fentany lrequirement, concentration of isoflurane used, autonomic signs and somatic signs were monitored intra-operatively an 1hour post-operatively. there was a significant difference between haemodynamic parameters at 1min,5min after intubation, during incision, starting of pneumoperitoneum, 15, 30, 60min of pneumoperitoneum, and 15min after release of pneumoperitoneum between the two groups. Relatively lower values in group were seen and statistically noteworthy difference was found (pvalue<0.05). Relatively lower requirement of fentanyl, concentration of isoflurane was used and relatively lower autonomic and somatic signs was seen in group E and the difference was found to be statistically noteworthy (pvalue<0.05). The hemodynamic parameters in control group after supplementing with fentanyl and increased concentration of isoflurane were similar to those who received esmolol. thus, esmolol having analgesic property can be given a thought. hence, we conclude that the intraoperative use of esmolol attenuated nociceptive stimulation..

Abstract : This study aims to identify the gaps in Quality Standards implemented in the Preventive Health Check department of the hospital and to justify the importance of adherence to the standards for quality care, staff motivation, patient satisfaction and ultimately brand value. The approach to the study was qualitative. Through mere observation and interaction with staff and patients and by the data collected. Appropriate literature reviews and studies of client satisfaction and managerial issues were also identified along with it. There are certain gaps in the considered standards and actual implementation that leads to lapses in Laboratory, Radiology department and that affects the client satisfaction rate. The compliance rate of the departments has a relation with the client satisfaction. The slight deviations from the set standards can reduce the client satisfaction due to lack of expected quality care and also affects the employee morale. The adherence to the standards encourages the employee to be updated in their fields and that in turn helps achieving greater satisfaction rate of the clients. For a hospital to adhere to the set standards mentioned in the JCI standards becomes every important to maintain the quality care service. This helps in Continuous Quality Improvement which is an important factor that determines the success of a hospital in these days. Improvement in quality is believed to result in fewer mistakes, shorter delays, improvements in productivity, increased market share and lower costs..

Abstract : Fixation failure is a common issue in orthopedic practice that carries negative impact specially on patients, in addition to burden on both doctor and health system. Our aim the most common pattern of failure, and the most common possible factor for fixation failure. An observational was conducted at the orthopedic surgery department in Imam Al Hussein medical city in Karbala from April 2018 to December 2019. Seventeen patients with 20 fixed fractures met the criteria for entry and were eligible to be included in the study, where recent significant trauma near the fixation area, pathological fractures, spine and per prosthetic fractures were excluded.17 patients with 20 fixation failures were reviewed and 11 of them were male and 6 were female. 70% of fixation failure occurred in lower limb while 30% in upper limb, plates constituted 75% (15 cases) meanwhile 10% found in dynamic hip screws and cannulated hip screws and 5% (1 case) was external fixation. Inadequate surgical technique was the most common cause of fixation failure (80%), others like obesity (35.2%), poor patient compliance (17.6%), and infection (10%) were contributed to fixation failure in lesser extent. Among technical issue; improper implant was 65%, meanwhile inadequate reduction was found in 60%, and improper Implant application was found in 85% of cases. Among plate-screw group (15 cases); the commonest pattern fixation failure was; screws cutout (53.3%) followed by broken plate (46.6%) and screws pullout (46.6%) and we relied on AO principles in evaluating these aspects of fracture management. Improper implant choice, incorrectly performed fixation techniques, deficient post-operative care and underestimation of fracture morphology all were possible causes..

Abstract : The objectives of this study were to examine the helpfulness on assessment of guidance and counselling services in helping undergraduate and post graduate students with psychiatric problems and found out the actual factors causing psychiatric problems among undergraduate and post graduate students who were studying at Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi. The researcher used quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate the assessment of guidance and counselling services in helping undergraduate and post graduate students with psychiatric problems at Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi. The respondents who participate in this study were 139 Undergraduate and post graduate students, they agreed that the assessment of guidance and counselling services were helpful to them in coping with psychiatric problems at Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi. As a result of the reliability coefficients (Cronbach Alpha) the helpfulness on assessment of guidance and counselling services by undergraduate and post graduate students) n = 139, the Crobach Alpha ranged from 0.88 to 0.95. Semi-structured interviews were used to gather data from three undergraduate students and three post graduate students who faced psychiatric problems..
