  • The Analytical Effect of Frequent Plateletpheresis Donation

    • Authors: Kanokwan Klunklin
      Pages: 154 - 154
      Abstract: The frequent platelet donation may affect the platelet counts of the donor. This retrospective,
      descriptive study had aimed to analyze the effect of the frequency, regular, long term plateletpheresis
      towards the donor's platelet counts. The data were collected from the plateletpheresis donors, Buddhachinaraj
      Phitsanulok Hospital, from June 2015 to December 2017. The platelet counts before each donate and
      the first time counts were compared by pair t-test. The results founded that there were 157 donations, 80.9
      percent of the donors donated double dose. The mean number of platelet products collected per donation
      was 1.8. The total platelets received were 3,072 doses. The interval between each collection of plateletpheresis
      was 35-43 days. No important decrease in platelet counts before donation was seen in donors donating
      platelet components up to 20 times. No frequent donors had a platelet count less than 150 x 109 /L. In
      conclusion; long-term frequent plateletpheresis does not decrease the donor platelets

      Pages: 161 - 161
      Abstract: Shoulder pain is a common complication of acute stroke patient. It has effect on physical
      therapy and recovery of patient. This retrospective study aimed to estimate the incidence of shoulder
      pain in acute stroke patient. The data were collected from the recorded physical therapy cards from October
      2015 to September 2016, analyzed by using computer program and reported in number, frequency,
      percentage, mean and standard deviation. The risks of shoulder pain were compared by using multiple
      logistic regression with statistic significant level at 0.05. There were 446 stroke patients in this study and
      the incidence of shoulder pain was 11.2 %. Group of patients who could followed command less than
      2 steps (group 1) had risk of shoulder pain 2.17 times than those who could follow command 2 steps
      (group 2) [crude OR 2.17 (95%CI 1.199, 3.928)]. Thus, the rehabilitation therapy should be aware in

  • Quality Improvement of Nursing Handover in Cardiothoracic Surgery
           Intensive Care Unit

    • Authors: Pimkasama Srichattanawat, Apiradee Nunsupawat, Petsunee Thungjaroenkul
      Pages: 175 - 175
      Abstract: Nursing handover is a process for transferring patient information by nurse from one period to the
      following period for continuous nursing care. This developmental study aimed to improve the quality of
      nursing handover in Cardiothoracic surgery intensive care unit, Buddachinaraj Phitsanulok Hospital,
      from August 2017 to January 2018 by using nine steps of continuous quality improvement process: finding
      a process to improve, organized a team that known the process, clarifying current knowledge of the
      process, understand caused of process variation, selected the process improvement, planed the
      improvement, did the improvement, checked the results and acted to hold the gain and continuous
      improvement combined with SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation). The research
      instruments were records of characteristics, group interview guideline, observation checklist regarding
      nursing handover's practice and incident report record. Data were analyzed and presented by frequency and
      percentage. Qualitative data were analyzed by content analysis. The results revealed that after using this
      process, registered nurses could completely and correctly perform more than 80.0% of nursing handover
      protocol. There was no incident from nursing handover and nurses had a high satisfaction level of 64.3%
      in the handover protocol. The suggestion after using the process was this protocol should be used
      continuously because nurse practice team was unfamiliar with handover forms. Therefore, this protocol
      could help nursing handover effectively with good outcomes of patients. Administrators should apply this
      protocol to improve nursing handover's quality to other care units

      December 2017 and 2) 32 registered nurses working at two inpatient units. Research instruments were
      the pressure ulcer care model, the record form of demographic data and pressure ulcer, test of nurses
      about pressure ulcer and the questionnaires towards the nurse satisfaction on the pressure ulcer care
      model. Data were analyzed by using: frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Dependent t-test
      and Fisher' s Exact test. The results showed that after using this model, pressure ulcers were decreased
      from 23.1% to 2.5% (p = 0.004). Nurses' knowledge related to pressure ulcer scores were increased from
      21 to 28 (p = 0.001) and satisfaction scores were at high levels in all dimensions. In conclusion, the usage
      of pressure care model can reduce pressure ulcer and the nurses have high satisfaction on this model

  • Pre-operative Routine Cross-match for Elective Total Knee Replacement

    • Authors: Wiboon Wanitcha
      Pages: 209 - 209
      Abstract: Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) has developed to minimal invasive surgery, decreased blood loss
      and blood transfusion, resulted in quick recovery. Nowadays, the routine preoperative crossmatch is still
      performed for all patients but not use as a whole. It causes loss of budget and time to prepare blood.
      This retrospective descriptive study aimed to find out the proper hemoglobin and hematocrit for crossmatch
      before TKA in Buddhachinaraj Phitsanulok hospital from October 2013 to September 2016. The result, there
      were 366 patients undergone unilateral TKA by the researcher. Pre-operative crossmatch bloods were
      prepared 380 unit but transfusion only 34 unit. The crossmatch to transfusion ratio was 11.7 and overall
      transfusion rate was 8.9. The patients who had pre-operative hemoglobin less than 12 gram/deciliter or
      hematocrit less than 36% had received blood transfusion 4.5 and 5.7 times more than the patients who had
      pre-operative hemoglobin more than 12 gram/deciliter or hematocrit more than 36%. In conclusion, the TKA
      has pre-operative blood preparation more than usages. These results should develop to be guideline for
      pre-operative crossmatch TKA patients who has pre-operative hemoglobin less than 12 gram/deciliter or
      hematocrit less than 36%

      access cannulation time for BBTAVF (84.63 days) was longer than upper arm AVG (32.15 days) (p < 0.001).
      The functional primary and secondary patency rate at 18-months follow up in both groups were 75.8%
      vs 65.8% (p = 0.113) and 91.7% vs 74.7% (p = 0.062), respectively. The hemodialysis catheter-related
      infection events after access creation were 3 (12.5%) for BBTAVF and 3 (7.0%) for upper arm AVG group
      (p = 0.659). The upper arm AVG group had gotten thrombosis 10 patients (20.8%) and gotten infection
      5 patients (10.4%). Conclusion, although the functional patency and HD catheter-related infection
      events after access creation were not significant different but the upper arm AVG group had more severe
      complications that requiring surgical interventions. Therefore BBTAVFs should be the first choice in
      patients with no limited life expectancy and had no high risk on prolonged hemodialysis catheter

      Abstract: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common form of peripheral entrapment neuropathy.
      There are several methods of treatment including wrist splint. This research had aimed to evaluate
      the effectiveness of wrist splint in carpal tunnel syndrome. This study was conducted during July 2014-
      April 2017 at the Out-Patient Department of Prasat Neurological Institute, Bangkok, Thailand. A total of
      106 patients with clinically and electrophysiologically nerve conduction study (NCS), confirmed idiopathic
      CTS were divided into two groups of wrist splint group (treated group, 51 patients) and medication group
      (controlled group, 56 patients). Patients were evaluated at onset prior to intervention and at 6 months.
      The primary outcomes measure changes in scores of Thai version Boston Carpal Tunnel questionnaire
      (BCTQ) and the secondary outcomes were measured by changes in Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) and
      severity according to neurophysiological classification. The results showed that, at the endpoint of this
      study after re-evaluation at six months follow up both groups showed a significant reduction in symptomatic
      BCTQ, treated group (from 3.4 to 2.8; p < 0.001) and controlled group (from 3.0 to 2.4; p < 0.001).
      No significant difference was found in nerve conduction study measurement, but overall neurological
      severity classification improved to less severe classes significantly in both groups (p < 0.001). Surgery was
      significantly performed in controlled group more than treated group (1 case (2%) vs 8 cases (14.5%)
      with p-value 0.032). The study demonstrates that both wrist splint and medication are highly effective
      in relieving symptoms in CTS however wrist splint can significantly decrease turn rate to surgery

  • Developing Programs to Promote the Ability of Performing Daily Activities
           of Patients with Stroke in the Discharge Stage from the Hospital

    • Authors: Orathai Promkaew, Apiradee Charoennukul, Lakhana Chopsiang, Arunnee Rattananitated, Rujira Kamsal, Phunchata Jaiviriyaboonya
      Pages: 248 - 248
      Abstract: Cerebrovascular disease is a worldwide important heath problem. This research and development
      had aimed to develop the programs to promote the ability to perform daily activities of patients with stroke in
      the discharge from the hospital, in Sappasitthiprasong Hospital, Ubon Ratchathani. The research was
      divided into three steps. The first step; studied the situation of patients with stroke after returning home,
      second step; developed and presented the program using results of the first step combined with
      methodology of empirical evidence in developing the program and tools. The program consisted of
      patient assessment, health education by video about stroke, Thai traditional massage, hot compression,
      demonstration and feedback of physical therapy, body exercise. Home activities were followed up
      through six weeks, by home visited in the first and fifth week, by phone in second, fourth and sixth week.
      Third step; trialed and evaluated the program in 30 cerebrovascular patients and caregivers. The results
      showed that mean scores of ability to perform daily activities of patients with stroke after using the program
      ( = 81.67, SD = 20.94) were higher than before using the program ( = 62.5, SD = 16.80) about
      19.17 (p < 0.001). In conclusion, the development of the program to promote ability to perform daily
      activities of patients with stroke in the discharge stage from hospital can help patients to increase their
      daily activities

  • Measurements of HDL Cholesterol Particle and Cholesterol Efflux Capacity
           in Assessment of Cardiovascular Diseases

    • Authors: Napaporn Apiratmateeku, Wanvisa Treebuphachatsakul
      Pages: 259 - 259
      Abstract: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the first ranking cause of death of the global population.
      Previous publications had focused on the increasing of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-cholesterol)
      level could decrease the CVD events or not. The prevalence of CVD still increased in the normal and high
      HDL-cholesterol group, indicated that the measurement of HDL-cholesterol was a poor biomarker to predict
      the risk of CVD. Therefore, the recent research projects focus on the size and particle of HDL-cholesterol
      and also the capacity of HDL-cholesterol, called cholesterol efflux capacity and found the relationship in
      prevention of CVD more than the level of HDL-cholesterol. This article provides information between CVD
      and size, particle and capacity of HDL-cholesterol for more investigation and considering as a new biomarkers
      for diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of CVD in the future

  • Immune Responses to Dry Eye Diseases

    • Authors: Pussadee Paensuwan, Wanachat Chaiyasan, Darawan Pejchang, Rossukon Khotcharrat
      Pages: 267 - 267
      Abstract: Dry eye disease is an ocular surface disease characterized by losing of homeostasis of the tear
      film. The etiology is caused by an inadequate tear production or quality deficiency of tear film resulting
      in rapidly tear film evaporation. It is accompanied by hyperosmolarity of the tear film. The exposure of
      the ocular surface to the hyperosmolar tear film activates both of innate and adaptive immune system.
      Inflammatory response represents a major mechanism leading to the secretion of inflammatory mediators
      in tear, following by the impairment of the ocular surface with abnormal ocular symptoms. Biochemical
      tear components including inflammatory mediators are evaluated as a diagnostic biomarker of dry eye
      disease severity. The treatment consists of artificial tear and anti-inflammatory drugs

  • Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Patient with Oropharyngeal Exercise

    • Authors: Mantana Prakassajjatham
      Pages: 278 - 278
      Abstract: Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea is a common pathologic condition which implicates in
      serious biophysical and psychological effects and reduces quality of life. The standard treatment is using
      continuous positive airway pressure therapy. Oropharyngeal exercise is an alternative or adjunctive
      therapy with other methods. It is a simple, safe and inexpensive method. It acts by increasing the
      strength and tone of the oropharyngeal muscles for maintenance of the upper airway patency. This
      modality of treatment significantly decreases of Apnea Hypopnea index, increases oxygen saturation
      during sleep, decreases daytime sleepiness and increases quality of life.
