H Kazemi,M Ghorbani
Journal of Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between metacognitive components and dysfunctional attitudes in outpatients with bipolar mood disorder II. Methods: Thirty-six young adult outpatients with current diagnoses of BMD II(20 females and 16 males) were recruited from Esfahan Counseling Center. Diagnoses were based on the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I Disorder-Clinical Version(SCID-CV). A battery of questionnaires including Metacognition Questionnaire and Dysfunctional Attitude Scale(DAS) were self-assessed by patients before medical therapy. Results: Pearson's correlation analysis showed that the components of metacognition and its relationship with dysfunctional attitudes is positive and significant(r= 28/0, p<0/05). Multiple regression analysis showed that two of the metacognitive components emerged as potentially useful in prediction of dysfunctional attitudes(negative beliefs about uncontrollability, danger and thoughts control). Also, results indicated that those two components have a significant positive relationship with vulnerability, perfectionism and effectiveness)R2= 0/29, 0/35; p<0/05). Components of positive beliefs about worry and beliefs about cognitive self-consciousness related to cognitive confidence in predicting the criterion variable and its components showed no significant contribution. Conclusion: Study findings suggest that DSM-IV BMD II outpatients with metacognitive distortions have shown higher levels of dysfunctional attitudes.
Atypical Kawasaki Disease in Two Infants Younger Than 6 Months
H Dahifar,A Ghorbani
Journal of Research in Medical Sciences , 2005,
Abstract: Two infants, a boy and a girl aged 2.5 and 5 months, respectively, were admitted to Tehran's Children Hospital, for fever of unknown origin lasting for about two weeks. The boy presented with abdominal distention, diarrhea, irritability, pyuria, anemia, leukocytosis, thrombocytosis and raised titer of acute phase reactants. The girl presented with irritability, diarrhea and abdominal distention, Leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, anemia and elevated titer of acute phase reactants. All bacterial cultures and serological tests were negative. Cardiac echocardiography showed coronary artery aneurysm in both patients and confirmed the diagnosis of Kawasaki disease. These cases showed that atypical Kawasaki disease was often a late diagnosis and therefore should be quickly suspected in febrile young infants with abnormal inflammatory laboratory results without infection. Echocardiography is an important tool for diagnosis of atypical Kawasaki disease. Key words: Kawasaki disease, Infant, Coronary artery

Abstract: Migraine is a paroxysmal disorder with attacks of headache, nausea, vomiting, photo- and phono phobia and malaise. Migraine treatment is a mystery of medicien yet. We compare the efficacy of sodium valproate versus propranolol in our patients. Two 35 members groups with migraine headache (according to criteria of international headache society) were selected. At first, we discontinued any drugs used by subjects. In group one we started sodium valproate by dose 200 mg/day then increased it up to 600 mg/day during 3 weeks. In another group, propranolol was started 40 mg/day and was increased up to 80 mg/day in a period of 3 weeks. After 12 weeks of treatment, improvement of headache was compaired between groups. Headache severity, freqency and duration were similar in two groups after 12 weeks. It seems that propranolol and sodium valproate have the same affects on migraine headache.

M. Ghorbani,H. Zare Mirakabad
Trends in Agricultural Economics , 2010,
Abstract: This research carried out to study of factors influencing on trout production in Khorasan Razavi Province using a cross sectional data of 105 trout producers and estimation of trout production function in 2008. Results showed that farms' area, number of fry, feed, fish farming period and water flow have positive effect on trout production and water temperature and fish losses have negative effect on it. Farms area, water temperature degree, number of fry, feed, fish farming period, water flow, water source, labor and fish losses elasticities are 0.282, -1.428, 0.216, 0.422, 1.641, 0.430, -9.19x10-4, -1.407 and -0.157, respectively. The highest positive effect is due to fish farming period that shows trout producers harvest earlier of economic harvesting time and supply to market. The highest negative effect is due to water temperature that shows it is high. Use of farms' area, number of fry, water flow and feed are at stage 2. Water temperature and fish losses are at stage 3. Effect of Farms area, water temperature degree, number of fry, feed, fish farming period, water flow, water source, labor and fish losses on fish production are 15.46, -78.30, 11.85, 23.14, 89.99, 23.58, -5x10-2, -77.15 and -8.60 kg, respectively. Fish cost price is 23518.16 rial kg-1 that sale 30000 rial kg-1 at market. Cost, revenue and gross revenue of trout estimated 49.13, 62.67, 13.54 rial/day/fish, respectively. Gross margin (income) is 6481.84 rial kg-1. Regard to results, fish feed management, supplying of farms water from river and spring, try to decrease of water temperature to 15-16°C, fish harvesting in income maximization time and farm environmental management suggested.
Investigation of the growth and development, essential oil and minerals content in two species of mint in hydroponics and aquaponics
H. R Roosta,F. Ghorbani
Journal of Science and Technology of Greenhouse Culture , 2011,
Abstract: Aquaponic is the combined culture of fish and plants. This experiment was arranged as a factorial in the framework of completely randomized design with two factors of growing system (aquaponics and hydroponics) and plant species (Mentha piperita and Mentha sativa) with 3 replications. The results showed that most growth factors of the two species were higher in hydroponics compared to aquaponics. Aerial parts and root fresh and dry mass, leaf area and number of nodes were higher in hydroponics compared to aquaponic culture. SPAD index was influenced by the culture system and its value was higher in hydroponic system. Essential oil content of M. sativa was higher in hydroponics and of Mentha piperita was higher in aquaponics. Lower amount of Mn and Mg in Mentha sativa shoots and N, P, Mg and Mn in Mentha piperita was the probable reason for growth reduction of plants in aquaponics as compared to hydroponics.

Iranian Journal of Pediatrics , 2006,
Abstract: Background: Birth is probably considered as the most highly dangerous event in every one’s life. Although a few percent of newborns may require resuscitation in this stage, wrong methods or failures would lead to death or leave some irreversible complications. That is why it is of great importance to learn the proper methods and become skilful in resuscitation. This study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of conventional and recommended methods of teaching resuscitation to nursery students. Methods: The research is an interventional–semi experimental study. The samples were 46 nursery students of the third semester who were divided into two groups of 23 according to their place of residence. The resuscitation was taught through the conventional and recommended methods. The conventional method consists of teaching all the theoretical subjects by different instructors and performing the related team work. In recommended method the time specified to theoretical subjects is less, and most of the subjects are somehow included in practical work. A pretest was given in the two groups and after the training a final theoretical and practical test was held through the OSCE methods. The findings were analysed by using the SPSS software and some statistical tests as: Mann Whitney U-test, Independent sample t-test, Pearson correlation, paired t-test. Findings: The findings of this study show that there is no significant difference between the primary knowledge of the students in the two groups. The post-test scores are higher in both groups and the difference is significant which suggests that training has been efficient in both groups. Comparing the post-test scores (practical and theoretical) shows no significant difference. There is no significant difference between the increase in practical and theoretical scores of both groups either. Conclusions: considering less time (1/2) and lower costs (1/4) spent on training in the recommended method, there was no change in efficiency.
