           Upper Egypt

    • Authors: Hanan Elzeblawy Hassan; Rasha Nabil Malk, Asmaa Abouda Abdelhamed, Amal Sarhan Eldesokey Genedy
      Pages: 412 - 425
      Abstract: Background: Birth-infection is known to be a major cause of maternal perinatal morbidity and mortality. Globally, it has been reported that better care during birth and labor, and newborns' care, as well, immediately after birth can avert up to 1.49 million maternal and newborn deaths and stillbirths. Infection Control is the most important field of concern in labor and delivery rooms. Aim: study the effect of an educational program on maternity nurses' knowledge and practices towards infection control in labor units according to standard infection control precautions. Subject & Methods: This study was conducted on 30 nurses worked in labor units of three hospitals in Fayoum city, Egypt. The method for data collection consists of а questionnaire based on standard infection control precautions. Checklists were used for 11 procedures to assess nurses' practices. Results: Nurses' knowledge and practices regarding infection control, according to standard infection control precautions, were poor. Statistically significant improvement in the maternity nurse's knowledge and practices after the implication of the program was found. The majority (87.0%) of nurses had expressed their satisfaction to participate with a high level of significant. Conclusion: Results indicate that prevention and control of infections aren't adequately applied in Fayoum hospitals. Therefore, after the program was implemented; all nurses reported higher scoring in both awareness and skills than before. The satisfactory score progressed while unsatisfactory one regressed. This is mirrored to the program's effect. Recommendations: Activate hospitals' infection control committees which should be combined with maternal death reviews, audits, training and feedback on infection rates in upper Egyptian Hospitals.

  • Nutrition Related Factors Affecting Academic Performance of Female Health
           Sciences Students

    • Authors: Alyaa Farouk Abdel Fattah Ibrahim; Arwa Abdulaziz Alhamed, Ghadir Mohammad Almusa
      Pages: 426 - 434
      Abstract: Malnutrition during students’ early life inhibits normal growth and affects their mental developmental. Several factors may contribute to the negligence of healthy nutrition practices among college students. The current study aimed to identify nutrition related factors affecting academic performance of female health science students. Methodology: One hundred seventy-two female health sciences students were included in an institutional-based cross-sectional study at KSAU-HS, Riyadh. Data were collected using youth students’ bio-socio-demographic and lifestyle structured interview questionnaire. Results: medicine students tended to have higher Body Mass Index (BMI)s compared to nursing students. About two tenth (20.8%) of the medicine students were overweight compared to only 14% of the nursing students, and 7% of the nursing students were obese compared to 8.3% of the medicine students. On the other hand, 22% of the nursing students were identified as underweight compared to 12.5% of the medicine students. BMI was significantly associated with Grade Point Average (GPA) among nursing students (τb =0.120, p=0.029). Yet, it did not show significant correlation with GPA among medicine students (τb =0.067, p=0.481). However, BMI was highly correlated with GPA for the total participants (t=6.355, Sig.=0.000, 95%CI=1.111-2.112). Highly significant correlations were found between BMI and all assessed socio-demographic and lifestyle factors except age. In addition, highly significant correlations were detected between GPA and all assessed socio-demographic and lifestyle factors. Conclusion: Study participants’ BMI was highly correlated with their GPA. High significant correlations were detected between BMI, GPA and all assessed socio-demographic factors including; academic semester, college, marital status, parents’ education, father’s occupation and family income but did not show significant correlation with age. In addition, BMI and GPA showed high significant correlation with all assessed lifestyle factors including; stress, TV watching, computer/electronic use, physical activity, daily sleeping time and day naps.

  • Effect of Positioning during Suctioning on Cerebral Perfusion Pressure
           among Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury

    • Authors: Naglaa EL Mokadem; Shimaa EL-Sayed
      Pages: 435 - 441
      Abstract: Background: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Patients with TBI may need mechanical ventilation because they cannot clear their airway secretions due to decreased consciousness, loss of laryngeal reflexes and an inability to cough. Endotracheal suctioning is important and needed in mechanically ventilated patients for airway clearance, improvement of oxygenation and prevention of atelectasis and infection. However, endotracheal suctioning is an invasive procedure and adversely affects some physiological indicators, such BP, PaO2, O2 saturation, HR, ICP and CPP. Aim: To examine the effect of positioning during endotracheal suctioning on cerebral perfusion pressure among mechanically ventilated patients with traumatic brain injury. Design: A quasi-experimental design (Study-Control) was used. Setting: The current study was conducted at the neurosurgical ICUs in Menoufia University Hospital and the teaching hospital in Shebin AL Khom. Sample: A convenient sample of 100 mechanically ventilated patients with traumatic brain injury were recruited from the neurosurgical ICUs. Tools: A Semi Structured Demographic Sheet; Physiological Measures Recording Sheet including CPP; MAP; CVP and Oxygenation as indicated by ABGs values; and Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). Results: There was a highly statistically significant increase in CPP (84.30± 6.35, 74.80±8.20) in the study group compared with the control group after endotracheal suctioning and elevating head of bed (HOB) at 30 degrees respectively (P=0.001). Furthermore, there was a statistically significant increase in PaO2 (88. 57±11.50; 73.57±11.24) in the study group compared to the control group after suctioning respectively (P

  • Nurses’ Satisfaction Related to Implementing Patient Acuity
           Tool-Based Assignment

    • Authors: Marwa Hassan Ageiz; Hind Hassan Abd El-mageed
      Pages: 452 - 462
      Abstract: Nurses’ assignment that based on patient acuity tool scores regulates the number of nurses on a shift according to the patients' needs, thus balancing nurses’ workload and enhancing nurses’ satisfaction with assignment. This study aimed at assessing nurses' satisfaction related to implementing of patient acuity tool-based assignment. Experimental posttest only design was used. This study was conducted in critical care units at the Menoufia University Hospitals in Shebin Elkom. Simple random sample of nurses was selected from the previous units that was divided equally into two groups: experimental group (n=89) and control group (n=89). Additionally, all first line managers of the same units were selected (n=33). Tools used for data collection included: (1): Nurses’ Satisfaction with the Methods of Assignment questionnaire (posttest only). (2): First line managers Opinion Sheet to measure their opinion regarding implementation of the acuity tool-based nurses’ assignment. Results of the current study revealed that the majority of nurses in the experimental group were satisfied with method of assignment that based on acuity scores after implementation of the program. Also, there was no statistically significant difference between nurses’ satisfaction in the experimental group and their personal data except regarding their educational level and years of experience that was highly statistical. In conclusion, implementation of Kidd et al., new patient acuity tool was effective in improving nurses’ satisfaction with assignment. Moreover, the highest percentage of first line managers agreed on implementation of the patient acuity- tool based assignment. Continuous incorporation of the patient acuity tool in nurses’ assignment and generalization in other nursing units is a significant implication to promote proper distribution of nursing shift assignments and better nurses’ satisfaction.
