Abstract : Cardiorespiratory endurance is an important aspect of health affecting the physical andmental activities of an individual. Little is known about the level of physical fitness among young adults inthe UAE. The present study was undertaken to assess Cardiorespiratory Endurance in Terms of PFI andVO2max among Gulf Medical University Students, Correlate PFI with Vo2max, and Compare thecardiorespiratory endurances between male and female students and Arabs and non-Arabs. Thisexperimental study was done on 78 healthy male and female students in the age group of 17 to 25 yearsfrom different nationalities and ethnicity. The cardiorespiratory endurance was assessed using HST. BMI,PFI (long form) and Vo2max (indirectly) were calculated and the Participants were categorized according toBMI, PFI, and Vo2max reference ranges. The data were presented as percentages and mean + SD. Studentpaired t-test was used to determine the difference in PFI and VO2max between Males and Females andArabs and non-Arabs. Pearson correlation coefficient was used to determine the correlation between PFI andVO2max at p < 0.05. Over 60% of Arabs (45.7+5.07) and non-Arabs (46.3+4.42) and females (46.0+3.81)and males (45.6+6.07) were having poor PF. As for VO2max, most students of both genders (males; (55%,42.0+4.26), females; (61%, 36.2+3.00)) and ethnicities (Arabs; (46%, 38.5+4.62), Non-Arabs; (79%,39.6+4.74)) found having average VO2max. Students were predominantly in the poor PF category and havean average VO2max indicating poor to average Cardiorespiratory endurance. A significant positivecorrelation was found between PFI and VO2max.

Abstract : One of the major complications of venous access ports placement especially in cancer patients scheduling for chemotherapy is infection. We aimed to investigate the frequency of catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) originated from chemotherapy catheter in children undergoing chemotherapy. All cancer patients referred to the Hematology department at Ali Asghar Pediatric Hospital during 2006 to 2016 who underwent chemoport treatment were included into this retrospective cross-sectional study. CRBSI was considered is children with a portal chemotherapy with at least one positive blood culture obtained from a peripheral vein and catheter tip, clinical manifestations of infections, and no apparent source for this infection, except the catheter. Overall, 36.42% of the subjects had chemotherapy port and 63.58% had no chemotherapy port. In total, 18.87% of all patients had blood infection and 81.13% had no infection. The rate of chemotherapy catheter insertion was strongly associated with higher rate of positive blood culture for infection (p < 0.001). In this regard, the rate of infection in the children with and without catheter was reported to be 64.9% and 29.8% respectively (p < 0.001). The most common bacterial strain discovered by blood culture in both groups with and without catheter was micrococcus subfamily. Regarding clinical outcome in those subgroups of children with and without chemotherapy port, the death rate was found to be 2.7% and 0.5% respectively with no difference (p > 0.05). CRBSI is a common event in children suffering chemotherapy especially in higher ages.

Abstract : One of the proper clinical practices applied in emergency medicine departments is the medical technique of procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA). The sedation level should be modified somehow that patients be able to undergo undesirable medical conditions and also preserve normal consciousness and physiological reflexes while being able for considering and responding to tactile or/and verbal stimulations. In spite the fact that the most frequently applied drugs for procedural sedation are broadly safe, but improper dosing or monitoring would increase adverse side effects. It should be noted that applying the technique of procedural sedation in emergency medicine departments may bring risks along. Appropriate medical monitoring from one side, and providing proper accessibility to resuscitation possibilities with the presence of properly educated staffs of emergency units for immediate management of airway and supporting the life of patients in an advanced way from the other side, could decrease the harmful consequences of treatment. For proper screening of compatibility of procedural sedation and evaluation the main risk factors, preprocedural assessment should be done. Patients who have improper airway, are in full stomach condition or have considerable medical diseases should take higher levels of conscious sedation and also should consider alternatives to procedural sedation. The medical professional doctor which is responsible for carrying out procedural sedation must be educated properly from the point view of operation, dose, consequences, side effects and antitoxin of frequently applied sedative analgesics. The recent developed novel and advanced techniques are such as the chemical compound of Inhalational anesthetic, drug delivery system of transmucosal, target controlled sedation (TCS), patient-controlled sedation (PCS) and transnasal esophagoscopy. After procedural sedation process, all patients must be undergoing medical monitoring and also must be kept at the recovery room until they present all required criteria’s for being discharged.

Abstract : Aggressive behavior among high school students is a vital school administration topic as a universal problem. One of the recent issues concerning both the media and parents is aggressive behavior among the high school students in Ho Chi Minh City and worldwide. This study aimed to investigate Vietnamese high school students' perception of aggressive behavior. The sample was composed of 450 students (184 boys and 266 girls from grades 10, 11, and 12) of 16–18 ages attending five high schools in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. They completed the Overt Aggression Scale, which included verbal aggression, physical aggression against objects, physical aggression against self, and physical aggression against other subscales. The most common aggressive behavior among the students was found to be “Verbal Aggression” (M = 1.55, SD = 0.91). The results also found that school aggression is a multifaceted problem among Vietnamese high school students. The present study investigated the verbal aggression, physical aggression against objects, physical aggression against self, and physical aggression against others among high school students from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Abstract : The highly use of generators creating an alarming level of pollution (air and noise) in all regions of the world. The soot which is impure carbon particles emitteddfrom diesel engines into environment during combustion process is to consider one of the dangerous pollutant due to its direct and broad impact on the respiratory organs and some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons known for their cancer properties are associated with it. Environmental conditionsshave many serious impacts on the general health of humans-as well as on dental status. The aim of the study was to evaluate caries experience and salivary oxidative stress biomarker (protein carbonyl) in relation to dental caries among a group of diesel generator workers. The sample for this study included 94 workers in diesel generators, their ages were between 20- 49 years. Collection of stimulated salivary samples was carried out under standardized conditions to determine the level of oxidative stress biomarker (protein carbonyl) while caries experience was determined by the Decayed- Missing – Filled Surface index by WHO 1997. The result revealed that caries experience (DMFS, DMFT, DS, MS) was relatively highest among the workers with longer duration and the most component of caries experience was the Missing surfaces (MS) followed by Decayed surface(DS) while the least one was the Filling surfaces (FS), furthermore, the salivary protein carbonyl level was increased approximately with increase duration of work in the field of generators. Saliva considered as a valid and convenient diagnostic biofluid for measurement of oxidant/antioxidants in patients. In this study there was changes in the oxidative stress in the biological systems among the workers with longer duration which can be produced by the exhaustion, of antioxidants and/or by an-overload of oxidants, as a result of this ,the antioxidant defense system become deficient that may,,be important in the inflammatory reactions, also caries experience was approximately,higher=among the=workers with longer duration ,therefore special oral, and general health,,preventive and educational programs are needed for them.
