Cardiac workload of dressers in underground manual coal mines
R Saha,A Samanta,NC Dey
Journal of Institute of Medicine , 2010, DOI: 10.3126/joim.v32i2.4938
Abstract: Introduction: Occupational disorders invite absenteeism amongst the miners. Though rapid technological advancement has happened, yet assessment of cardiac workload was largely ignored in underground coal mines in India.
Some Proximate Analysis of African Pear (Dacryodes Edulis)
NC Onuegbu, NC Ihediohanma
Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management , 2008,
Abstract: Some physical and chemical properties of African pear (Dacryodes edulis) samples from nine different trees were analysed in order to determine the level of differences that exist between trees. The length of the individual fruits ranged from 39.86 mm to 80.76 mm while the weight ranged from 15.97 g to 39.36 g. Significant differences (p . 0.05) were observed between the samples for all the parameters measured. Fruit density showed a negative correlation (r = -0.86) with the pulp/seed ratio. Significant differences were also observed in the proximate composition of the African pear pulp. The major components of the pulp were moisture (36.5% to 53.82%), oil (18.81% to 38.36%) and protein (11.09% to 19.19%). The pulp acidity ranged from 0.92% to 1.69% expressed as citric acid.
Uses and Gratifications of Home Videos among the Nigerian Teenage Audience: Implications for Cultural Development and Sustainability
NC Nnaji
African Research Review , 2011,
Abstract: The fall out of the introduction of the video cassette recorder (VCR) in the mid-1970s has been the proliferation of home video films. And the dominant audience of this unique medium today is found among children and teenagers, which have employed it for various purposes. This work studies the gratifications sought by teenagers in Enugu-North Local Government Area of Enugu State in the home video films they watch. Using the survey research design and a population of 200 this work found that the preponderant of the population use home video for diversion and relaxation, while a sizable number use it to ease tension. The content and duration of watching put in this past time are different ball games. As much as 42 percent of those polled spend 3 -5 hours a day watching films. Their dominant genres are love, comedy, sex and children films. The implication of all this for cultural development and sustainability is that our youths have become captive audiences to immorality and alien culture. The researcher recommends a stricter regulation of this medium as well as training of continuous practitioners of the industry.
Disc Battery Impaction in the Oesophagus
NC Okpala
Journal of Science and Technology (Ghana) , 2008,
Abstract: The recent growing popularity of electronic miniature toys has made disc battery ingestion increasingly common. The impaction of these miniature toys can result in a range of complications such as minor oesophageal alkali burns, tracheo-oesophageal and aorto-oesophageal fistula. A case report in which an eleven month old boy swallowed a foreign body-a disc battery is presented. Occasional retching was observed with no respiratory distress upon arrival at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, United Kingdom. Even though he was irritable, systemic examination did not reveal any obvious abnormality. The slightly-eroded battery with surrounding black debris was eventually removed. On the chest radiograph, the battery looked similar to coins which are more commonly ingested and could be easily mistaken for coins with dire consequences. The chest radiograph revealed the battery as a circular radio-opaque shadow with a peripheral double rim. It is important for medical practitioners to recognise this fact and be able to identify a battery from a coin which has a similar shape but a single rim since the history of the foreign body swallowed may be as unclear as it was in this case.

Attitudes towards psychiatry of undergraduate medical students at Bayero University, Nigeria
NC Aghukwa
South African Journal of Psychiatry , 2010,
Abstract: Background. This study determined and compared responses of 5th- and 6th (final)-year medical students on their attitudes to psychiatry as a profession. Also elicited were their choices of area of future medical specialisation. Method. A prospective and cross-sectional study using an adapted 27-item self-administered questionnaire to obtain responses from 91 5th- and 6th-year medical students at Bayero University, Kano, Nigeria. Results. More than 60% of the students’ first choices for future specialisation were surgery, obstetrics/gynaecology or internal medicine. Psychiatry was the first preference for less than 2%. More than 75% of the students’ views on the overall merits and efficacy of psychiatry were positive, although they felt that psychiatry had low prestige and status as a profession. In addition, the same proportion considered that psychiatry was scientific, making advances in the treatment of major mental disorders, and helpful in liaison practice. More than 50% stated that psychiatry would not be their choice of last resort for residency education and the same proportion felt that friends and fellow students rather than family members would discourage them from specialising in psychiatry. More than 50% would feel uncomfortable with mentally ill patients, felt that psychiatry would not be financially rewarding, and did not think that psychiatrists abuse their legal power to hospitalise patients. Attitudes of the two groups of students to psychiatry as a profession were not significantly different (p>0.05). Conclusion. A clinical clerkship in psychiatry did not influence the students’ choice of future specialisation.
The ageing eye” functional changes from cradle to gray: A review
NC Ikoro
Journal of the Nigerian Optometric Association , 2006,
Abstract: Ageaffects the structure and functions of both eyes equally.With increasing age the eyes' axial lengths increase, mean refracting power decrease, lens power decreases and visual acuity increases. Hyperopia increases, stabilizes and then decreases but increases again from age 45 while myopia shows up from age 7 and increases linearly with increasing age till age 20 and then levels off.Accommodative amplitude on the other hand decreases with age while contrast sensitivity improve and is at its maximum between ages 20 and 30 after which it decreases as a function of age, colour vision and visual fields also diminish with age.
Cerebrospinal Fluid Shunt Infections

Klimik Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Shunt is the most common approach among medical and surgical treatment modalities for treating hydrocephalus. The main purpose of the shunt is to reduce intracranial pressure by draining the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the ventricles. Infection is one of the serious complications and it develops in approximately 5-15% of the inserted devices. The microorganisms responsible for the shunt infection usually arise from the normal flora of the skin. During the surgical procedure and healing period, microorganisms residing in skin may adhere to the shunt and start the infection. The clinical symptoms may differ according to the type of shunt used. Abdominal pain is the most common complaint in patients with infected ventriculo-peritoneal (VP) shunt. On the other hand, fever is the leading symptom in ventriculo-atrial (VA) shunt infection. Other than clinical signs, biochemical and microbiological analysis of CSF are necessary to diagnose shunt infection. The gold standard of treatment is the usage of antibiotics with shunt revision. In addition to parenteral antibiotics, intraventricular administration of antibiotics may be an essential part of the treatment. The most efficient way to avoid shunt infection is to follow the strict rules for preventing surgical site infections.
Neutropenic Enterocolitis
Serkan ?ncü
Klimik Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Neutropenic enterocolitis, which has very high mortality, is one of the syndromes that may develop in immunocompromised patients. This syndrome usually develops after the usage of cytotoxic drugs and the main symptoms are fever and abdominal pain. Other than aerobic and anaerobic inhabitant bacteria of the intestine, fungi may also be the etiologic agent in this syndrome. Clinical findings, ultrasound and computed tomography are used for diagnosis. Caecum is the most involved intestinal segment and the wall thickness greater than 4 mm should be interpreted as diagnostic sign. Supporting therapy and broad spectrum antibiotics that covers possible pathogens should be started for neutropenic enterocolitis. Surgery should be considered in patients with clinical deterioration, perforation and uncontrolled hemorrhage.
