  • Maternal social determinants of health and birth weight

    • Authors: Shabih Manzar
      Pages: 1 - 6
      Abstract: Background: Social determinants of health (SDoH) affect health during pregnancy. Previous studies have looked at the association between individual SDoH among pregnant women and neonatal outcome. In this study we looked at the correlation between a cumulative SDoH score and birth weight. Methods: Information on the social determinants of health (SDoH) among pregnant women was collected by using the electronic questionnaire. By using the color-coded wheel, generated by the electronic record system, we developed a SDoH score, ranging from 0-20. A SDoH color of green indicated no concern, while red indicated severe concern. The corresponding birth weight for the maternal SDoH score was noted after delivery. The data was analyzed using the MS excel program. Results: A total of 130 women out of 159 (81%) completed the questionnaire during the study period of eight weeks. The mean SDoH score was 3.12 with standard deviation of 2.3 (range 0-13). The mean birth weight was 3048 grams with standard deviation of 563 grams (range 860-4215 grams). A weak negative correlation (r = - 0.14, R² = 0.0217) was noted between the birth weight and SDoH score. Conclusions: Maternal social determinants of health affect fetal growth. Further studies are needed to validate our findings.

           study observing the spread of COVID -19 in India

    • Authors: Presthiena Lofi, A B Prasad, P R Varghese, Praveenlal Kuttichira
      Pages: 1 - 7
      Abstract: Background:  The lockdown policies and pandemic curve in India during the two overlapping waves were different. This study aimed to explore the spread of COVID-19 pandemic transmission during the first and second waves in the context of nationwide lockdown in India. Methods: The present study was a cross-sectional analysis of the COVID-19 incidence and daily fatalities from March 24, 2020 to July 17, 2021 was done using data retrieved from public domains of governmental websites and COVID-19 dashboards.  The daily number of cases (DNC), and the daily number of deaths were observed in the context of the lock and unlock phases and analyzed using descriptive statistics in Microsoft Excel 2010. Results: The country was able to effectively handle the first wave in 2020, delaying the peak by up to six months, in which nationwide lock down probably had an effect. During the first pandemic wave in 2020, the DNC increased from 506 cases on March 23 (Lock 1) to a peak of 97,874 cases on September 16 (Unlock 4), before declining to 31,118 cases on November 30 (Unlock 6) as the lockdown came to an end.  With only state-level lockdowns in the second wave, the DNC jumped from 9,121 cases on 15th February 2021 to 414,118 cases on May 6, 2021 and then dropped to 30,093 cases on July 19, 2021. The peak was uncontrollable, with 1,846,806 cases and 236,529 deaths reported across the country in the three months from April 1 to June 30, 2021. Conclusion: The nationwide lockdown probably had an effect on the control of pandemic during the first wave. The findings highlighted the desirability of national policies, and synchronization of lockdown restrictions across the country during pandemic.

      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: Background: Attachment style is a major variable in the creation and description of marital problems and has received greater attention in recent years. The traits of secure attachment include constructive emotional interactions and intimate marital relationships. The present study aimed to predict marital conflicts using a problem-centered systems approach with the mediating role of attachment styles among conflicting couples. Methods: In this descriptive correlational study, the statistical population in this study was the total number of conflicted couples in Tehran and Qom in 2020. The sample included 540 men and women with marital conflict selected by convenience sampling. The research instruments included the Experience in Close Relationship Scale (ECR-S), the Marital Conflict Questionnaire (MCQ), and the Family Assessment Device (FAD). Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation method and structural equation modeling using SPSS version 22.0 and LISREL version 8.0 software. Results: The assessment of the hypothetical model of the research indicated that it was a good fit with the measurement model (CFI>0.90; IFI>0.90; RMSE>0.08). The results demonstrated that the components of the systems approach with the mediating role of attachment styles could explain marital conflicts (P<0.001). These components had an indirect relationship with marital conflicts through attachment styles (β= -0.27, P= 0.01). Conclusion: Based on the results, the proposed model had a good fit. Overall, the findings verified the marital conflict model based on a systemic approach mediated by attachment styles.

    • Authors: Melody Omraninava, Shaghayegh Javan , Ghahraman Mahmodi
      Pages: 1 - 6
      Abstract: Background: Appendicitis is known as inflammation in the appendix, and its treatment is merely through surgery. There is mistaken diagnosis according to clinical presentations. C-reactive protein is an annular pentameric protein found in blood plasma, whose circulating concentrations rise in response to inflammation. It is an acute-phase protein of hepatic origin. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic effect of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis in patients referring to Valiasr Hospital in Qaemshahr city, Iran in 2017-2018. Methods: This study was a diagnostic study and blood samples were collected from patients with acute abdomen pain with suspected appendicitis in Qaemshahr Valiasr Hospital. Then CRP results were compared with pathological results as golden standard; then sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of this test were determined based on standardized test (pathologic result). Results: The sensitivity and specificity of CRP test in diagnosis of acute appendicitis were 71.42% and 60.58%, respectively. In addition, PPV and NPV were 88.88% and 42.85%, respectively. Conclusion: According to the results of this study, CRP can be considered as one of the predictive tests of acute appendicitis. Evaluation of CRP levels, alongside with other diagnostic approaches, can be used as an adjunctive diagnostic method in the diagnosis of acute appendicitis.

  • Pandemic-related decline in injuries related to women wearing high-heeled
           shoes: Analysis of U.S. data for 2016-2020

    • Authors: Philip Cohen
      Pages: 1 - 6
      Abstract: Background: Wearing high-heeled shoes is associated with injury risk. During the COVID-19 pandemic, changes in work and social behavior may have reduced women’s use of such footwear. The aim of the study was to investigate how the trend in high-heeled shoe related injuries (HHSRIs) among U.S. women may have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: This used 2016-2020 data from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to assess HHSRIs among U.S. women. The study included injuries with the “Footwear” product code and selected those with narratives using words suggesting the involvement of high heels. Analysis is based on frequency of such reports by date. Results: In 2020 there were an estimated 6,290 high-heel related emergency department visits involving women ages 15-69, down from 16,000 per year in 2016-2019. There were 5.40 HHSRIs per 100,000 women ages 15-69 in 2020 (CI: 3.95 to 6.86), significantly below the peak in 2017. Analysis by date shows the 2020 decline began after the start of the COVID-19 shutdowns on March 15. There was no significant change in the percentage of fractures or hospital admissions. Conclusion: The COVID-19 pandemic was associated with a decline in reported injuries related to high-heeled shoes among US women. Among these, there was a non-significant increase in more serious injuries, which might suggest pressure to stay away from hospitals for less serious injuries during the pandemic. However, if fewer women wearing such shoes, the result may be fewer injuries in the future.

      Abstract: Background: Emergency department (ED) is one of the most important hospital departments, with significant effects on public health. The aim of this study was to evaluate the adult ED's performance of the largest teaching hospital in southern Iran. Methods: In this retrospective cross-sectional study (March 2017-August 2018), the registered data in the Hospital Information System (HIS) were collected, and the ED’s performance was assessed based on the Iranian emergency performance index. The slopes of the trend lines were calculated for each indicator. Moreover, 2 six-month periods were compared. Results: The data of 104,081 patients were analyzed. The mean (±standard deviation) of visited patients per-month was 5,782.28 (±1258.55). The slope of the trend line was negative for all indicators, except for discharge from ED with personal responsibility. The mean duration of waiting time for the first visit by physician in each triage level slightly decreased. Comparison of the two six-month periods showed a significant difference between the visited patient (P<0.0001). The percentage of patients disposed within six hours (P<0.0001), leaving ED within 12 hours (P<0.0001), as well as the percentage of successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation (P=0.014) in the six-month period of 2018 was significantly lower. The percentage of discharge with personal responsibility significantly increased (P=0.005). Conclusion: Although the number of patients visited in this ED decreased, all indicators had dropped. However, the percentage of discharge with personal responsibility was increased. Moreover, the mean duration of waiting time for the first visit by physician slightly decreased in each triage level.

      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Background: Marital adjustment is one of the most important factors in determining the stability and permanence of the marital relationship and can leads to feelings of happiness, satisfaction and satisfaction of needs that are mutually met. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of social support on marital adjustment in hospital staff with the mediating role of self-control and resilience. Methods: The present study was a descriptive correlational study. The statistical population included the staff of Samen Al-Aimeh Hospital in Mashhad with a total of 380 people in 2020, from which a sample of 257 married male and female staff were purposefully selected. Data were collected using questionnaires of social support, marital adjustment, resistance, and self-control. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software version 21 and Pearson correlation (structural equation type). Results: There was a significant relationship between self-control as a mediating variable and marital adjustment with value (B = 0.700, P <0.001). Also, there was a significant relationship between resilience as a mediating variable and marital adjustment with the amount (B = -0.643, P <0.001). A total of 0.93 variance related to marital adjustment was explained by the variables of social support, resilience and self-control. Conclusion: The results showed that social support has a positive effect on marital adjustment. It is recommended that in order to improve the marital adjustment of couples, workshops should be held on how to perform and receive social support and promote psychological flexibility in social organizations and institutions.

  • The relationship between moral disengagement and spiritual well-being in
           the students of Tehran universities with the mediating role of positive
           and negative affects.

    • Authors: Fatemeh Zamani Amir, Hayedeh Saberi, Simin Bashardoust
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: Background: Spiritual well-being is the fundamental dimension of health that integrates the other dimensions (physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual) and is dynamically reflected in four domains of self, others, environment, and a superior being. The present study aimed to investigate the mediating role of positive and negative affects in the relationships of moral disengagement and spiritual well-being in university students in Tehran. Methods: The statistical population of this descriptive correlational study comprised all students of universities in Tehran in the academic year 2020-2021. A sample of 301 students (199 females and 102 males) was selected via convenience sampling. The research instruments included the Spiritual Well Being Scale (SWBS), the Moral Disengagement Questionnaire, and the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS). Data were analyzed by the Pearson correlation method and path analysis. Results: There was a significant correlation between the components of moral disengagement, positive and negative affects, and the components of spiritual well-being (P<0.001). The findings revealed that the path between negative affects and spiritual well-being was significant and negative, and that between positive affects and spiritual well-being was significant and positive (P<0.001).  The total path coefficient between moral disengagement and spiritual well-being was significant and negative, and the indirect path coefficient between moral disengagement and spiritual well-being was significant and negative (P<0.001). Positive and negative affects, therefore, significantly and negatively mediate the relationship between moral disengagement and spiritual well-being (P<0.001). Conclusion: According to the results, spiritual well-being can thus be promoted through training to prevent moral disengagement both directly and as mediated by positive and negative affects.
