  • The Role of Anxiety Sensitivity, Intolerance of Uncertainty, and
           Obsessive-Compulsive Symptoms in the prediction of Cyberchondria

    • Authors: Zahra Zangoulechi, Zahra Yousefi, Neda Keshavarz
      Pages: 1 - 6
      Abstract: Frequent search for health-related data on the internet that escalates anxiety experience is called cyberchondria. The aim of this study was to determine the role of anxiety sensitivity, intolerance of uncertainty and obsessive-compulsive symptoms in the prediction of cyberchondria. The study was performed on 177 students of Tabriz University, Tabriz, Iran. The samples were recruited using clustering sampling method. Data were collected using Cyberchondria Sensitivity Scale (CSS), Anxiety Sensitivity Index-Revised (ASIR), Maudsley Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (MOCI), and Intolerance of Uncertainty Scale (IUS). According to the regression analysis, anxiety sensitivity, intolerance of uncertainty and obsessive-compulsive symptoms positively and significantly predicted cyberchondria. According to the results, the interpretation of physical sensations as dangers, uncertainty about the origin of these senses, and the feeling of responsibility and coercion to be sure about the health leads the individual to frequently search medical information through the Internet.

  • Fluoride Levels of Urban Water in Western Azerbaijan Province in 2017

    • Authors: Mehdi Daneshpooy, Elmira Jafari-navimpour, Mahdi Rahbar, Javad Parhizgar
      Pages: 10 - 14
      Abstract: Introduction: Fluoride is one of the naturally occurring mineral elements which has an effective role in preventing dental caries and its consolidation. Fluoridation of water is a simple technique and the most effective method approved for preventing dental caries. Accordingly, this research was carried out with the aim of investigating the level of fluoride in the urban water of cities in Western Azerbaijan province in 2017. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-cross-sectional study, the level of fluoride in urban water reservoirs of 17 towns of Western Azerbaijan province was examined in different reservoirs. The information of the reservoirs was collected from water and wastewater organization of the province, where a 250-cc water sample was collected from each reservoir. The prepared samples were thenT sent to the laboratory to measure the level of fluoride. Determination of the concentration of fluoride ion in water samples was carried out using spectrophotometric method. Eventually, the data obtained from this study were examined by statistical-descriptive methods using SPSS 17. P <0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results: The results obtained from the study indicate that the level of fluoride in the samples investigated in Shooth and Poldasht town was larger than the optimum level, while the rest of towns had a level lesser than the optimum value. Furthermore, the median of the investigated population (the median fluoride of the towns of Western Azerbaijan province) was 0.227 ppm, when based on statistical tests, it had a significant difference with the optimal fluoride value (1 ppm) (p-value<0.05). Conclusion: Considering the median of fluoride concentration in towns of Western Azerbaijan province (0.227 ppm), it can be stated that the level of fluoride in drinking water of this province is low, elucidating the addition of supplementary fluoride to the drinking water of reservoirs.

  • Sexual Dysfunction Prevalence in Women with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    • Authors: Alireza Shafiee Kandjani, Mohammad Reza Hosseinpour, Hossein Daneshamooz, Habib Shoja, Leila Nikniaz
      Pages: 15 - 19
      Abstract: Background: Sexual dysfuntion is a common complication of diabetes and its psychiatric and physical affects may obligate a huge burden compromising patients’ matrimonial, inter-personal and marital relationships. Current study is aimed to evaluate the frequency of sexual dysfunctions in type 2 diabetic women during 2015-2016 in Tabriz, Iran. Materials and Methods: Current cross-sectional study evaluated data gathered from 18-45 years of age type 2 diabetic women attending diabetes care centres of Tabriz. Sample size was estimated to be 300 and the sampling process fulfilled using cluster sampling methods according to the inclusion criteria. Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) is used as the research tool. Descriptive data analysis were applied to achieve results using SPSS 20. Results: Non-parametric binominal tests reflects statistically significant decrease in sexual activity of the diabetic patients (p= 0.001). The probability of the catogry below the cut point was 1 which means that 100% of type 2 diabetic women suffer from sexual dysfunction. All items of sexual function are found to be below the average normal measurments. Conclusion: Type 2 diabetic women are vastly under the burden of sexual dysfunction, which affects their physical and psychological health. Current study showed the need to provide sufficient and available care services and organized education courses for diabetic women.

  • Role of Duplex Ultrasound in Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer and Localization
           for Biopsy

    • Authors: Iman Yazdaninia, Abolhassan Shakeri Bavil Olyaei, Javad Jalili, Hasan Mohammad Rezaei, Armin Zarrintan
      Pages: 20 - 24
      Abstract: Background: Prostate cancer is a common malignancy among men and is one of major problem of health care system. Ultrasonography is useful, safe, and available method for evaluation of prostate problem. The aim of present study was to evaluate the role of duplex ultrasound in diagnosis of prostate cancer and localization for biopsy. Methods & Materials: In a descriptive analytical study, 27 patients with increased level of PSA, who were referred to ultrasonography ward of Imam Reza Hospital for prostate biopsy, were included in the study and examined with color doppler and duplex ultrasonography. Biopsy was done for all patients using transrectal guided ultrasonography. Resistance index (RI), pulsatility index (PI), prostate volume, and pathology findings of biopsy, were evaluated. Results: Among 27 patients, 12 patients (44.4%) had prostate cancer and 15 patients (55.6%) had benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In evaluation of RI & PI in prostate arteries, there were no significant differences between patients with malignancy and patients with BPH (P>0.05). Mean volume of prostate in patient with prostate cancer was 36.56±3.13 ml and in patients with BPH was 54.76±5.42 ml. Mean volume of prostate in patients with BPH was significantly more than patients with prostate cancer (P=0.020). Conclusion: Based on the findings of present study; there is no significant correlation between vascular features of prostate arteries and prostate malignancy, and volume of prostate in patients with BPH was significantly higher than patients with prostate cancer.

  • Nurses Beliefs And Attitudes Towards Visiting Policy In The Intensive Care
           Units Of Ghanaian Hospitals

    • Authors: Yakubu H. Yakubu, Maryam Esmaeilie, Elham Navab
      Pages: 25 - 32
      Abstract: Background: Research and evidence supporting open and liberalized visiting policy has resulted in many hospitals adopting these policies. But, ICU nurses’ beliefs and attitudes about flexible and open visiting policy vary. Hence open visitation has not always been implemented by nurses who are the ward owners. It is vital to evaluate nurses’ beliefs about and attitudes towards visiting policy. Methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional quantitative survey was conducted in 4 public hospitals in Ghana, with a sample of 140 nurses. Data were collected with a validated scale – BAVIQ to assess the nurses’ beliefs and attitudes toward visitation. Results: Generally, nurses’ preferred restricted visiting policy based on their attitudes however, the beliefs of nurses about visiting policy were skeptical (neither agree nor disagree). The study also showed a meaningful relationship between nurses’ beliefs and their sex (p=0.02), experience (p= 0.00), educational level (p= 0.00), employment status (p=0.00) and executive position (p=0.00). It also indicated a meaningful relationship between nurses’ attitudes and their sex (p=0.00), experience (p=0.00), educational level (p=0.00), and executive position (p=0.00). Chi - square was used to compute the test. Conclusions: Based on the findings, ICU nurses’ beliefs and attitudes toward visitation support the universal concern of restricted visiting policy in Ghana. These are important factors in the implementation of flexible visiting policy in the intensive care units; the beneficial effects of open visiting policy for the nurse, the patient and the family because it enhances patient centered care and optimal health. Therefore the need for drafting a protocol and guidelines for intensive care units visiting policy in Ghana is recommended. A qualitative research in specific areas of visiting policy is recommended.

  • The Most Accurate Method for Measurement of Mitral Valve Area in Mitral
           Stenosis by Direct Planimetery Three Dimensional Transesophageal
           Echocardiography (3D TEE)

    • Authors: Mehrnoush Toufan, Naser Khezerlouy Aghdam
      Pages: 33 - 33
      Abstract: DEAR EDITOR,
      Three-dimensional (3D) transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a powerful tool for assessment of mitral valve area with multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) or direct planimetery in patients with rheumatic mitral valve stenosis. Two dimensional transthorasic echocardiography (2D TTE) is a well-known conventional method in these patients which is used routinely. This method is less accurate than 3D TEE because mitral valve is saddle shaped and 2D images cannot image this valve correctly [1-7]. Exact method for 3D mitral valve area measurement is not determined yet and MPR was used as an accurate method. Direct planimetery by 3D TEE emerged as a novel method to evaluate mitral valve area with least variability [8].
