Highlights

Kinesiophobia is an important predictor of adverse outcomes in patients with acute or chronic low back pain, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and neck pain. The temporomandibular disorder (TMD) has many similarities with the above diseases. Both are disorders of musculoskeletal structure, but there are few studies on kinesiophobia in TMD patients in China. There are few studies on TMD in China. Therefore, this study aims to review the research progress of Kinesiophbia, and provide evidence for medical staff to implement targeted interventions.

Abstract

This article reviews the source and concept of Kinesiophbia, the assessment tools, the adverse effects on temporomandibular disorders, the influencing factors and intervention methods, and provides a reference for clinical practitioners to choose appropriate intervention regimes. Nursing staff provide information support for effective health education, thereby reducing the level of patients with Kinesiophbia, promoting the recovery of mandibular function and improving their quality of life.

This study was to examine the current situation of self-perceived burden in primary glaucoma patients and its related factors. The results showed that the patients with primary glaucoma had a heavy burden of self-perception. It was helpful to improve the patients' awareness of negative experience and actively cope with the disease.

Abstract

Objective: To explore the status of self-perceived burden (SPB) in primary glaucoma patients and to analyze its influencing factors. Subject and setting: A questionnaire survey was administered to 236 inpatients from a tertiary general hospital and a eye hospital in Tianjin. The investigation was conducted after obtaining informed consent from each participant. Instruments: They were investigated using general data questionnaire, Self-Perceived Burden Scale (SPBS), Medical Coping Modes Questionnaire (MCMQ). Design: A descriptive cross-sectional design was used to gather data in this study. Results: The total SPBS score of primary glaucoma patients was (31.10±9.34) was medium. Regression consults showed that avoidance and surrender coping style, medical burden and right eye vision were the influencing factors of patients’ SPB (P<0.05). Conclusion: Patients with primary glaucoma have a relatively heavy SPB, so medical staff should encourage them to actively face it. Tailored strategies in line with the patient’s economic and visual conditions to reduce the SPB.

Highlights

We summarized the analgesic effect, commonly used acupoints and adverse reactions of auricular point pressing beans after mixed hemorrhoids operation. We found that auricular point pressing can improve the analgesic effect, reduce anal edema, and the price is low, and the operation is convenient, so it is recommended to be popularized clinically.

Abstract

Objective: To systematically evaluate the application effect of auricular acupuncture in postoperative analgesia in patients with mixed hemorrhoids. Methods: We searched Chinese Biomedical Literature Database, CNKI, WanFang, PubMed, Embase, and The Cochrane Library to collect randomized controlled trials about auricular acupuncture on Postoperative patients with mixed hemorrhoids. According to the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria screening literature. RevMan 5.3 software was used for meta-analysis. Results: A total of 20 articles and 21 studies were included, including 1999 patients after mixed hemorrhoids. The control group was treated with routine nursing analgesia. The experimental group was treated with auricular acupressure beans based on the control group. The meta-analysis showed that the pain relief rate of the experimental group was better than that of the control group [OR = 2.84, 95% CI (2.12, 3.80), P < 0.05]. Subgroup analysis showed that the application of auricular acupressure after milligan morgan was superior to the control group in the analgesic effect [OR = 3.68, 95% CI (2.62, 5.18), P < 0.05], but it is not yet possible to apply auricular acupoint pressing to relieve pain after Stapler hemorrhoidectomy (P > 0.05). The pain scores of 24 hours and 48 hours after operation in the experimental group were lower than those of the control group, indicating that auricular acupoint sticking can relieve the pain after operation.The improvement of the postoperative anal margin edema was better in the experimental group than in the control group, 24 h [SMD = -1.99, 95% CI (-2.84, -1.14), P < 0.05], 48 h [SMD = -1.92, 95%CI (-2.72,-1.11), P < 0.05]. The adverse reactions were lower than the control group. Conclusion: The application of ear acupoint pressure pea after external exfoliation of mixed hemorrhoids can improve the analgesic effect and reduce the symptoms of postoperative anal edge edema, and the price is low, the operation is convenient, and the side effects are few. It is recommended to be popularized in clinical practice.

This case report describes the case of a full term girl baby with left congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which was identified during the fetal life and managed appropriately in the neonatal period. This case report study emphasizes the importance of finding such congenital abnormalities in time, and these abnormalities can be diagnosed by ultrasound before delivery, so as to get effective treatment.

Abstract

This case report describes the case of a full term girl baby with left congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) born to a 36-year-old mother at 38 weeks of gestation. The baby at birth had an APGAR 8 and birth weight 2.930 kgs. Pre operatively, the baby was ventilated and was kept Nil per oral and continued with Total parenteral nutrition. Nasogastric tube continuous suction was done. The parents were counselled for the surgical repair of CDH. On the third day of life, exploratory laparotomy was performed. 5 cm diaphragmatic defect was found. The stomach, pancreas, small bowel, large bowel, and spleen were successfully restored from the left thoracic cavity and the diaphragmatic defect was closed. Post operatively, the baby was breastfed well, thermo regulated, maintained saturation, passed urine and stool and was discharged.
