      Abstract: The objectives of this cross-sectional descriptive research were to study the level of  physical activities and to study the relationship of predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors with physical activities of the elderly people in a village, Bang Pla Sub-District, Bang Phli District, SamutPrakan Province. The sample was 200 independent elderly people with least 60 years of age  in  a village, Bang Pla Sub-District, Bang Phli District, SamutPrakan Province and was selected by using the stratified random sampling based on gender, then simple random sampling was used by a lottery. The questionnaire was used as a research tool for data collection. The obtained data were analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, chi-square test and Spearman’s rank correlation analysis.             The results showed that the elderly people were in a moderate level of physical activities. (=2.96, SD=0.78). The predisposing factor was occupation, which had a correlation with the physical activities of the elderly people at a significance level of 0.05 (p-value = 0.002). Alternatively, gender, age, marital status, educational level, and income level had no significant correlation with the physical activities of the elderly people. Knowledge and attitudes about physical activity were positively correlated with physical activity at low and moderate levels at a significance level of 0.01 (r = 0.379, 0.673 p-value = 0.000). The reinforcing factors consisted of family support, which had a low positive correlation with the physical activities at a significance level of 0.01 (r = 0.068, p-value = 0.000). Similarly, support from the village health volunteers and support from the community had a moderate positive correlation with the physical activities of the elderly people at a significance level of 0.01 (r = 0.643, 0.502, p-value = 0.000). The enabling factor of the elderly people was facility, which had a low positive correlation with the physical activities at a significance level of 0.01 (r = 0.378, p-value = 0.000).

      Pages: 15 - 31
      Abstract: The objective of this research was to study the effect of sodium starch glycolate on dissolution of paracetamol extended release bilayer tablets. The immediate and extended release layers were prepared by wet granulation method. Extended release layer was prepared by using hydroxypropyl methylcellulose K4M (HPMC K4M) as matrix former at 1.25% of extended release layer weight. Sodium starch glycolate was used as disintegrant with concentrations 0, 1, 1.5, 2 and 2.5% of extended release layer weight. In vitro released studies were performed according to dissolution USP 40 and compared with dissolution specification. The results showed that the released rate increased with increased of sodium starch glycolate. The dissolution profile of the drug with 1.5% sodium starch glycolate was similar to that of the innovator. Both were conformed to the acceptance criteria level L1  of  USP 40. Dissolution test results were further analysis by comparing with the innovator. The values of difference factor ( ) and similarity factor ( ) were 4 and 68, respectively. Drug released kinetics was followed Fickian diffusion. The mechanism of drug released through the matrix was found to be diffusion swollen and erosion controls. Extended release layer with HPMC K4M 1.25% as matrix former and sodium starch glycolate 1.5% as disintegrant would be benefit for this study. Therefore, the extended released bilayer tablets could be a potential dosage form for delivering paracetamol

  • The effect of hemolytic contamination in sample on clinical chemistry
           analysis

    • Authors: ปานทิพย์ รัตนศิลป์กัลชาญ, วรภัทร์ บุญเยี่ยม, ธนวัฒน์ กษมาวุฒิ
      Pages: 47 - 59
      Abstract: This study aimed to examine the effect of hemolysis on clinical chemistry analysis. Blood samples were obtained from 30 healthy volunteers in the age range of 20-60 years. Non-hemolyzed plasma was separated from whole blood by centrifugation. Hemolysis was simulated in samples by adding their own hemolysate to their non-hemolyzed plasma to make the final concentration of hemoglobin at 0.9 mg/mL, 1.8 mg/mL, 3.5 mg/mL and 6.7 mg/mL. These samples can be classified as 1+, 2+, 3+ and 4+ hemolysis samples respectively. Subsequently, all samples were analyzed for the following 14 parameters: glucose, BUN, creatinine, uric acid, total cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, total protein, albumin, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, AST and ALT using an automatic analyzer. Clinical chemistry analysis showed that different hemolysis levels appear to significantly increase the level of certain tests. Accordingly, hemolysis 1+ affected direct bilirubin level (p<0.05). Hemolysis 2+ affected total bilirubin and AST level (p<0.05). Hemolysis 4+ affected glucose, uric acid, ALT and total protein level (p<0.05). However, hemolysis did not significantly affect to the results of BUN, total cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, albumin and creatinine level. In conclusion, these results suggest that different levels of hemolysis may affect different chemical analytic parameters. Considering these results, hemolysis level may be an important factor to prevent unnecessary rejection.

  • HPV Vaccine : Nursing Role in Health Promotion and Cancers Prevention from
           HPV

    • Authors: สิทธิศักดิ์ เครือพิมาย, พรศิริ พันธสี
      Pages: 132 - 145
      Abstract: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common infection in sexually transmitted infections. It is a major cause of many cancers in both female and male organs. The cancers caused by HPV infection in women include cervical cancer , vaginal cancer, cancer of the mouth and throat  and anal cancer. In males they include cancer of the penis, cancer of the mouth and throat and anal cancer. Therefore, primary prevention of HPV infection is very important. By avoiding getting HPV, reducing and eliminating the causes or risk factors associated with cancer or enabling the body to resist carcinogens including vaccination against HPV is the primary prevention of effective HPV infection. because it can make a better immunity better than natural HPV infection and is available to both males and females. Nurses have a very important role to play in health promotion and prevention of desease from HPV infection, because of their roles as health assessors, educators, counselors and creators of academic work and systematic knowledge including deep and accurate knowledge about HPV and HPV vaccine to be able to deliver health promotion and disease prevention to the people most effectively.

  • Motorcycle Accidents in Thailand : Epidemiology Perspective

    • Authors: วัชรพงษ์ เรือนคำ, ณรงค์ศักดิ์ หนูสอน
      Pages: 146 - 160
      Abstract: Deaths and injuries from motorcycle accidents are major public health problems in Thailand. Understanding motorcycle accidents is complicated because it has many complicated components. Use of epidemiology perspectives to analyze the situation of motorcycle accidents, the distribution of motorcycle accidents (person, time and place), and the cause of motorcycle accidents in epidemiology triad: human (motorcyclist), agent (motorcycle) and environment (road conditions, environment, and law enforcement). Furthermore, this view will allow us to better understand the problem of motorcycle accidents and to apply the knowledge gained to the prevention and control of motorcycle accidents. Moreover, it will solve the problem effectively and solve the actual causes of the motorcycle accident problem.

  • Preliminary hazard Analysis (PHA): Hazard Identification Technique for
           Work Accident Prevention

    • Authors: อุมารัตน์ ศิริจรูญวงศ์
      Pages: 161 - 172
      Abstract: The Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA) technique is a tool used to search for basic hazards and used to search for hazards during the design of production processes or machines in order to set adequate safety measures before production starts. In addition, this technique is very useful for proactive safety management. The PHA technique has a complicated procedure that can use to investigate basic causes of accidents. The implementation of PHA has a total of 6 steps, including analyzing scope determining, the risk level estimation criteria based on relevant factors, hazard analysis team, risk evaluation and eliminating or reducing risk. For the input for hazard identification this consists of data from manuals of concerned machinery, electrical systems, toxicity of chemicals, work instructions and past accident information, etc. The output part consists of issues of various mistakes of process units or machines, danger source and defects or inadequacy of safety measures. Hazardous findings must be registered on the Preliminary Hazard List (PHL) together with the risk level. Risk level should be determined based on the likelihood of occurrence and severity or other factors associated. Hazard identification with this technique leads to the initial system safety requirements (SSRs). However, this technique is only a Preliminary Hazard Analysis. For increasing capabilities, this technique should be used with other techniques such as failure mode effects analysis (FMEA) or what-if.
