Abstract : Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an early stage of cognitive decline associated with normal aging and dementia. Harmful behavioral activities, mental health issues, and chronic diseases that commonly manifest after retirement may predispose military veterans to MCI. Therefore, a cross-sectional study was conducted among veterans who lived in the urban city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to determine the prevalence of MCI and its associated factors. A total of 406 male veterans with a mean age of 61.5 years old participated in the study. Face-to-face interviews were conducted to obtain information on sociodemographic, behavioral activities, and health-related conditions. All participants underwent cognitive tests using the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA-BM). The results showed that the prevalence of MCI was 21.4%. A logistic regression model revealed that low physical activity (adjusted odds ratio (aOR) 10.29), hypertension (aOR 2.22), lower education level (aOR 2.98), subjective memory difficulty (aOR 3.61), and subjective concentration difficulty (aOR 3.95) were associated with a higher likelihood of MCI. In addition, those aged 60 years and above, as well as those in the non-officer group, were associated with a higher risk for MCI with aOR 4.57 and 4.59 respectively. In conclusion, inactivity and hypertension are preventable risk factors MCI. Therefore, military veterans must be encouraged to practice a physically active lifestyle after retirement to maintain a healthy cognitive level..

Abstract : Guided imagery is now finding widespread scientific and public recognition. Guided imagery is being used to teach psychophysiological relaxation, alleviate anxiety and depression, relieve physical and psychophysiological symptoms, overcome health-endangering habits, resolve conflicts, help patients prepare for surgery and tolerate procedures more comfortably. Quasi-experimental research was conducted to assess the outcome of the guided imagery on pain perception among post caesarean mothers. Non-randomized non-equivalent control group design was adopted for the survey among 60 post caesarean mothers, selected using a non-probability purposive sampling technique. The tools used were Socio-demographic Proforma, Clinical variable and Numerical Pain Intensity Scale. Guided imagery was administered to the experimental group for 20 minutes for three days. The analysis results showed that the mean difference of pain in the experimental group was 2.83 with S.D. 0.65, significantly higher than the mean difference of pain in the control group 1.37 with S.D. 0.51, with a difference in a mean difference of 1.46. The calculated 't' value of 7.89 was more than the table value (2.001) with the degree of freedom 58 at 0.01 level of significance, which was highly significant. Thus, guided imagery effectively reduced the pain perception among post caesarean mothers in the experimental group. The study's findings have implications in nursing practice, education, administration and research..

Abstract : Non-compaction of left ventricle is an uncommon autosomal dominant disorder and Right ventricle non-compaction is still rarer. It is a rare cardiomyopathy that is believed to arise from an arrest in embryonic endomyocardial development. More recent studies suggest that it can be acquired later on in life sporadically. It may be accompanied by life-threatening complications, which are most commonly heart failure, arrhythmias, and thromboembolic events. We present a case of 40year old man who presented with dyspnea and palpitation since 15 years and was diagnosed after 2D Echocardiography and Cardiac MRI as Bi-ventricular non compaction with Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). To the best of our knowledge, this combination of ASD with biventricular non-compaction has not been reported in literature so far..

Abstract : Hepatitis has become a foremost health concerns worldwide. Majority of the infected population remain unaware of their disease status due to non-screening practices. The aim of present study was to evaluate the prevalence of undetected cases and practices regarding Hepatitis B & Hepatitis C among patients attending community pharmacies of southern Punjab, Pakistan. A cross sectional study was conducted for the duration of three months from January to March, 2017 using a structured, validated questionnaire. Rapid diagnostic kits were utilized for screening of patients from selected community pharmacies of two big cities of South Punjab, Pakistan. Descriptive and inferential statistics were applied for data analysis by using SPSS version 20.0. P value <0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Among total 794 respondents, 565 (71.2%) were males and 229 (28.8%) were females. Prevalence of undetected HBV cases was 2.01% (n = 16) and for HCV was 5.41% (n = 43). Results showed poor practices of respondents with mean practice score of 2.54/6 (±1.581). Study emphasized the need of educational programs along with motivational campaigns to persuade people for regular screening of HBV & HCV that will prove beneficial in early diagnosis and management of the disease..

Abstract : Airway managements by direct laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation during general anaesthesia are known to induce clinical changes in hemodynamic variables such as tachycardia, hypertension, and arrhythmias, which can cause myocardial ischemia. In order to prevent adverse cardiovascular responses, laryngeal mask airway can be used instead of laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation during airway management. The aim of our study is to compare the hemodynamic response with FASTRACH intubating laryngeal mask airway (ILMA) and Macintosh laryngoscopic intubation. Institute Ethics Committee Clearance was obtained before start of study. Study was carried out on 78 patients belonging to ASA grade I and II, aged between 18 to 65 years, including either gender. Patients were divided into Group M:Intubation using Macintosh laryngoscope and Group L:Intubation using FASTRACH LMA. After obtaining informed written consent from patients in their own understandable language, they were randomly assigned to one of the two groups based on WINPEPI APP. Mean heart rate when compared showed significant increase in group M whereas there was slight increase noted in group L. Systolic blood pressure and mean arterial blood pressure showed increase in both group after intubation. Diastolic blood pressure showed significant increase in group M whereas in group L significant decrease was observed. There were no ECG abnormalities noted in both groups. Based on our study we concluded that intubation using FASTRACH ILMA is associated with less cardiovascular response and hemodynamic changes when compared with Macintosh laryngoscope..
