Abstract

A study to evaluate the effectiveness of natural honey application on oral mucositis among patients undergoing radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy in selected hospital, Kanyakumari district. Out of 60 samples, 30 samples were in study group and 30 samples were in the control group. The WHO Oral Mucositis Grading Scale was used to screen the oral mucositis in the study and control group. Pre assessment was done on first day and post assessment was done on seventh day. The researcher concluded as per the study that, oral mucositis can be reduced by natural honey application. This study findings statistically proved the natural honey application is effective on oral mucositis among patient undergoing radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy.

MATERNAL RISK FACTORS OF HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA AMONG NEWBORNS.

[Year:2018] [Month:Sep-Dec] [Volume:9] [Number:3] [Pages:4] [Pages No:14 - 17]

Keywords: maternal risk factors, hyperbilirubinemia, newborns

   DOI: 10.5958/2249-3190.2018.00037.8  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

The incidence of hyperbilirubinemia is on the increase and the reasons for it are less explored to guide its prevention. So a study to identify the maternal risk factors of hyperbilirubinemia among newborns was undertaken. An analytic retrospective approach with case control design was used and through purposive sampling, 50 newborns with hyperbilirubinemia and 50 newborns without hyperbilirubinemia were selected as participants of the study. The mean of the total maternal risk scores of cases (M= 8.9) were higher than the controls (M=6.9) and the difference was statistically significant at P<0.001 level. Item wise analysis has shown specific antenatal, intra natal and neonatal risk factors which were higher among the cases with hyperbilirubinemia. The study findings can be helpful in planning strategies f ention of hyperbilirubinemia in newborns.

[Year:2018] [Month:Sep-Dec] [Volume:9] [Number:3] [Pages:5] [Pages No:22 - 26]

Keywords: respiratory status, incentive spirometry, post operative patients

   DOI: 10.5958/2249-3190.2018.00039.1  |  Open Access |  How to cite  | 

Abstract

The respiratory system is crucial to every human being. Respiration is an important task, since it costs life. Incentive spirometers also known as sustained maximal inspiration devices, are used to promote deep breathing. This present study analyzed the effectiveness of Incentive Spirometry on respiratory status among post operative patients subjected to major abdominal surgery. The objective of the study was 1.To assess the pre test respiratory status of the post operative patients. 2. To assess the post test respiratory status of the post operative patients. 3. To evaluate the effectiveness of Incentive Spirometry on respiratory status on post operative patients. 4. To find out the association between respiratory status and their demographic variables. True experimental design was adopted & 60 samples were selected by simple random technique at Billroth Hospitals. The level of respiratory status was assessed by using incentive spirometry among abdominal post operative patients at ICU & post operative wards. The major findings of the study shows that, the post test level of respiratory status was maximum of 73.33% had good score and 26.67% had excellent score in experimental group. The study concluded that the incentive spirometry was found to be effective & there was a significant difference in the respiratory status among post operative patients. There was no significant relationship found between the post test respiratory status with selected demographic variables.
