  • Determining Stressors among Dentistry Students of Tabriz University of
           Medical Sciences in Educational Environments and its Relationship with
           their General Health Condition

    • Authors: Tannaz Pourlak, Javad Yazdani, Seyyed Vahid Dehnad, Arezou Ghoreishizadeh, Seyed Ahmad Arta, Fatemeh Dabagh, Mohammad Ali Ghavimi, Masoume Amani
      Pages: 1 - 4
      Abstract: Background: It is believed that medical students are more faced with stressors during their academic studies. The highest rate of stress and anxiety in clinical education settings may negatively affect the learning and success of these students. The aim of the current study is investigating the stressors dentistry students face within educational settings and its relationship with their general health condition. Materials and Methods: The current statistical-analytic study performed upon 180 dentistry students of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in 2014. A 54-item Student Stressors Questionnaire was used to assess the students stress and a 28-item Goldberg Questionnaire was used to evaluate the general health of the students. Likert 4-item scale (0 to 3) was used for scoring both questionnaires. Results: Mean age of the participants was 24.37±2.84. 6.65% of students were female and the mean stress level was 1.2±0.6. 36.7%, 48.3% and 15% of students had low, average and high stress level, respectively. There was no significant relationship between students’ stress and sex or their marital status. 50%, 23.3%, 20.6% and 6.1% of students had high, average, poor and very poor general health, respectively. There was no significant relationship between students’ gender and their general health. There was also no significant relationship between students’ stress and their general health. Conclusion: Almost half of dentistry students had average stress and 15% had high stress in which levels its pressure may get sever with increased academic period and difficulty level of the academic units. Correct educational programs, periodic counseling meetings and use of skilled counselors at universities can play influential roles to reduce stress level of dentistry students.

  • Comparison of Analgesic Effects of Intravenous or Rectal Acetaminophen for
           Controlling Post-Tonsillectomy Pain

    • Authors: Mahin Seyedhejazi, Yalda Jabbari Moghaddam, Daryoush Sheikhzadeh, Mojtab Sohrabpour, Nasrin Taghizadieh
      Pages: 5 - 8
      Abstract: Background: Acetaminophen is a simple analgesic and antipyretic administered in varied formats and from different routes. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of intravenous (IV) and rectal acetaminophen (RA) for controlling post-tonsillectomy pain. Methods: In a double-blinded randomized clinical trial, 70 children scheduled for adenotonsillectomy were randomly allocated into two groups, each containing 35 patients.In the first group, 40 mg/kg of rectal acetaminophen and in the second group, 15 mg/kg of IV acetaminophen was administered at the end of surgery before extubation. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were measured every 15 minutes after intubation. Face pain score was recorded for every 30 minutes between extubation and discharge from recovery room. The data from both groups were analyzed using SPSS program. Results: All demographic findings (age, gender and weight), the size of used endotracheal tubes, initial heart rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure were comparable in both groups.The pain intensity was reduced in both groups. But this decrease was more prominent in the group who received IV acetaminophen (P=0.006). The changes in systolic blood pressure were not significant in both groups, as well as the changes in systolic blood pressure in recovery room and the ward. Diastolic blood pressure increased both in the recovery room and the ward. The changes were not significant in the ward; whereas, the changes in diastolic blood pressure in recovery room were statistically significant (P=0.008). Heart rate decreased significantly both in the recovery room (P=0.001) and in the ward (P=0.002). Conclusion: Intravenous acetaminophen is more effective than rectal acetaminophen for attenuating post adenotonsillectomy pain in children.

  • Quality of Speech Following Cleft Palate Surgery in Children

    • Authors: Shahin Abdollahi Fakhim, Nikzad Shahidi, Gelavizh Karimi Javan
      Pages: 14 - 18
      Abstract: Background: Surgical treatment of cleft palate is accompanied with speech problems. Speech therapy in these children after surgery can improve their speech. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the quality of speaking in operated cleft palate patients and speech therapy effects in a small group of these patients. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, speech quality of 55 children with operated cleft palate was assessed regarding resonance, audible nasal emission, consonant production and speech acceptability. Speech outcomes after therapy were evaluated in 19 patients. Results: Cleft palate types were unilateral cleft and lip palate in 18 cases, bilateral cleft and lip palate in 4 cases, secondary cleft palate type in 30 cases and of mere-soft palate in 3 cases. Thirty-five children were operated during the first year of life and 20 were operated after the first year. More than 55% of patients had normal hypernasality with few cases of severe hypernasality and less than 45% had error in consonant production. Patients operated during first year of life had more speech problems. Speech parameters were improved in 19 patients after speech therapy. Conclusion: In conclusion, children with cleft palate have some degrees of speech disorders after repair surgery than could be improved by the speech therapy. Speech therapy should be considered as one of the main treatment protocols along with repair surgery in children with cleft palate.

  • Evaluating the Accuracy of Dental Space Prediction as a Simple Visual
           Observation Compared to the Standard Prediction Method in Mixed Dentition
           Period

    • Authors: Abbas Salehi-Vaziri, Mojtaba Sabzijati, Mohsen Nuri-Sari, Mohsen Merati, Mahdi Rahbar, Hannaneh Karimi
      Pages: 19 - 24
      Abstract: Background: Investigating and analyzing the dental artery space during a mixed dentition period is very important because it is used in orthodontic treatments planning. The main purpose of this study is to compare the standard Tanaka-Johntson method and simple visual observation in the space analysis in a mixed dentition period and realizing the accuracy of the simple visual observation. Methods Materials: The present study follows a double blind cross-sectional study. Three patients who were in the mixed compare period were selected and six samples were collected from the upper and lower Maxilla duplicate casts. Data were analyzed using ICC and correlation and paired t-test with SPSS 22 software. Results: The general analysis result of the estimated sizes by specialists and residents and the obtained sizes from the Tanaka-Johntson method shows only 28% of the agreement between these two methods. The announced agreement for the sizes was 31% by residents and 22 % by specialists. According to the obtained data, the average difference between specialists and residents was at least one hundredth of a millimeter and the maximum difference was ninety-seven hundredths of a millimeter. Conclusion: The results of the present study show that the estimation of space difference in a simple visual observation method has not an acceptable accuracy in comparison with the Tanaka-Johntson method. In addition, the conducted estimations by residents were also slightly more accurate than that of the specialists.

  • Comparison of Anesthesia Depth Monitoring using Conventional and
           Bispectral Index on Incidence and Severity of Nausea and Vomiting after
           Urological Surgeries

    • Authors: Reihan Shenasi, Hamzeh Hoseinzadeh, Hasan Mohammadpor-Anvari, Davod Aghamohammadi, Reza Sari-Motlagh
      Pages: 25 - 28
      Abstract: Bispectral index parameter is used to guide the titration of general anesthesia. This monitoring improves recovery times and hospital discharges, as well as minimizes adverse events. The objective of this study is the comparison of anesthesia depth monitoring by conventional and bispectral index on nausea and vomiting after urological surgery. 180 participants who were scheduled for abdominal urological surgery were studied. Patients before induction of anesthesia were randomize into two groups with and without bispectral index monitoring. Incidence and severity of nausea and vomiting were recorded every 30 minutes for 2 hours and every 6 hours to 24 hours after surgery. The incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting in Bispectral index group is 14.4% and 8.9% and in control group 28.9% and 23.3%, respectively. The risk of nausea and vomiting after surgery was reduced by 14.5% and 14.4%, respectively in patients monitored with bispectral index.
      INTRODUCTION
      Nausea is the conscious perception of medulla stimulation that is associated with vomiting center and create vomiting response (1). General anesthesia with the use of inhalants can cause nausea and vomiting after surgery (Postoperative nausea and vomiting, PONV). The incidence of PONV is reported about 20-30 percent (2). It seems that multiple-factor can cause PONV and few items such as anesthetic drugs, kind of surgery and personal risk factors is effective on PONV. These factors make into two categories that includes factors out of control by anesthesiologists and factors can control by anesthesiologists.
      1. Factors out of control by anesthesiologists: some of these factors are age, gender, past history of PONV and motion sickness, smoking, kind of surgery, operating time and anesthesia time, anxiety of patients and parents. 2. Factors controlled by anesthesiologists: these factors are associated of anesthesia settings, including premedications, kind of anesthesia, anesthesia drugs during surPublished

    • Authors: Seyyedhossin Ojaghihaghighi, Samad Shams Vahdati, Rouzbeh Zoraghchian, Roshan Fahimi
      Pages: 29 - 33
      Abstract: Background and Objectives: Proper management of resources and patients in emergency departments (ED) is the main priority of the hospitals. By investigating patient referrals to our ED during 5 years, we tried to help making policies about development and management of ED. Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive study, data pertaining to etiology of admission and final discharge of patients were collected through medical record review (HIS) from 2011 to 2015, and analyzed utilizing SPSS software. Results: 444552 patients were referred to our ED among whom 22.37% were outpatients. The most common indications for admission were trauma (37.97%), abdominal pain (20.63%), headache (10.59%) and CVA impression (3.59%). 25.92% of patients had personal consent to leave the ED without being visited (Left Without Being Visited: LWBV) by a physician. Mortality rate was 0.76% in five years. Trauma was the most common cause of death in first three years (25.87%, 20.90% and 20.07%, respectively); and decreasing level of consciousness was the most common cause of death in last two years (22.89% and 30.40%, respectively). Conclusion: Considering safety and patient’s satisfaction as two factors determining quality of emergency care, these findings reveal the need for reducing LWBS (by improving communication skills and quality of care) and lowering the incidence of mortality and morbidities (by improving diagnostic and therapeutic skills).
