Abstract : Nurses working at ICUs are at risk of developing mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression due to the highly demanding nature of their work and the working environment. Indeed, these disorders may negatively influence the health status of nurses and might decrease the level of nurses’ professional performance. Purpose: To investigate the effect of anxiety and depression on the performance of nurses working in intensive care units in Jordan. A non-experimental descriptive cross-sectional design was used for this study. A validated self-reported questionnaire; the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and the Six-Dimensional Scale of Nursing Performance were used among 375 nurses. Nurses working in ICUs were picked from two private and two governmental hospitals in Jordan. Jordanian nurses working in ICUs had a mild level of anxiety and depression with a mean score of (8.25 ± 3.74; 8.61 ±3 .67, respectively). The lower levels of anxiety, the lower levels of depression predicted higher quality and frequency in performing nursing care. The higher level of education predicted higher quality of performing activities while the higher years of experience and nurse working in governmental hospitals predicted a higher frequency of performing nursing activities. Anxiety and depression faced by ICU nurses in Jordan negatively affected their performance and therefore the outcome of the patient health status. Therefore, assessing factors causing anxiety and depression among nurses is crucial. Future research may implement strategies to decrease anxiety and depression and examine the effect of these strategies on the performance of the nurses.

Abstract : Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) affects up to 20% of all newborns; however, controversies remain regarding the primary treating specialty. The present study aims to evaluate physicians’ knowledge about CNLDO from among all possible specialties that may encounter CNLDO cases. A thorough questionnaire was developed to assess knowledge, attitude, and practice of pediatricians, ophthalmologists, primary care physicians, and general practitioners regarding CNLDO. Ninety-six participants were included in this study with a mean age ± standard deviation of 29.1 ±5.18 years. Marital status significantly affected the mean scores for practice because married doctors had a higher mean score (P=0.045). The practice setting significantly affected only knowledge (p= 0.008) because doctors in university hospitals had a higher mean score (difference, 4.53; confidence [CI], 2.12-6.94). Ophthalmologists had higher knowledge and practice scores than did other specialists. Years of experience also affected the attitude toward CNLDO cases: more experienced doctors had higher scores, regardless of their specialty. Different specialists encounter the common condition CNLDO. Encouraging referrals to ophthalmologists and providing more educational materials to pediatricians is essential because pediatricians are the most common specialists who will encounter such cases.

Abstract : Childbirth complications and admission to the intensive care units in the immediate postpartum period have the potential to impact transition to motherhood. Mothers in the intensive care units have special needs other than monitoring and resuscitation. This study aims to explore the subjective experience of transition into motherhood among Jordanian mothers who suffered childbirth complications that required postpartum hospitalization into the intensive care units. A descriptive phenomenological approach has been conducted to underpin this study among purposive seven mothers who developed childbirth complications and were admitted to the intensive care units at any of the Royal Medical Services Hospitals in Jordan. Data were generated through semi-structured qualitative interviews. The interviews were conducted at two points of time, within the first month and four to six months after birth. The results showed five major themes in relation to transition to motherhood after childbirth complications and admission to the intensive care units: Early Separation and Delayed Bonding, Unmet Needs of the Mothers by the Intensive Care Unit Environment and Healthcare Professionals, Devastation: Physical and Emotional and the Role of Spirituality and Sociocultural Influences. This study provided insight into risks of the childbirth complications upon mothers’ physical and psychological well-being, and maternal- infant relationship, it also highlighted the needs of mothers during their stay in the Intensive Care Units..

Abstract : Patients express high anxiety before undergoing any surgery due to fear of anesthesia and its implications. Considering this, the study aims to provide insights about patients’ fears related to anesthesia. It also identifies the causes that instill anesthesia-fear. A cross-sectional design was used where data was collected from 3285 individuals through a survey questionnaire. The findings indicate that the majority of the individuals were afraid of both surgery and anesthesia (43.1%). Top causes of fears were related to medical errors (56.7%), the untrained anesthesiologist (53.2%) and fear related to death (38%). It concludes that medical errors serve as a primary fear-inducing factor for anesthesia in surgical treatments.

Abstract : The purpose of this systematic review is to compare the safety and efficacy of the cyclosporine and mycophenolate mofetil in patients with diabetes and renal failure. There is no work we found that compares the safety and efficacy of cyclosporine and mycophenolate in diabetic and renal failure patients. The search was limited from 1983 to 2017 and articles must be in English. Articles searched from various resources and are evaluated using PRISMA. 25 articles picked and screened at the end of 12 articles included in the study. The result shows that the pharmacokinetics of cyclosporine is affected by the renal failure and diabetes and mycophenolate did not show much variation in pharmacokinetics. The safety of mycophenolate in renal patients in terms of serum Creatinine is more than the cyclosporine and shifting of the patient from cyclosporine to mycophenolate shows better results. It is concluded that mycophenolate is more safe and efficacious than cyclosporine in diabetic patients with renal failure.
