Geriatric Syndromes
Sibel Eyigr
Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2009,
Abstract: In recent years, clinicians and researchers have shown increasing interest in geriatric syndromes. Geriatric syndromes such as frailty, delirium, urinary incontinence, dizziness, falls, sleep problems, malnutrition, pain, self-neglect are multifactorial, and associated with substantial morbidity and poor outcomes in clinical practice. They are highly prevalent in older adults, especially frail older people. Nevertheless, the concept of central geriatric syndrome has remained poorly defined. This article, based on a review of the literature, discusses the assessment and the characteristics of geriatric syndromes. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2009; 55 Suppl 2: 57-61.

Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2010,
Abstract: Frail elderly syndrome is a geriatric syndrome of increased vulnerability to stressors due to impairments in multiple interrelated systems. Common signs and symptoms are unintentional weight loss, muscle weakness, fatigue, slow walking speed, and progressive functional decline. Frail older adults are among the most challenging for medical management. Therapeutic interventions include nutritional supplementation, exercise training, comprehensive geriatric assessment and management by consultation services, and hormonal or anti-inflammatory interventions. Further intervention studies are needed to determine the effectiveness and the potential harm of these treatment modalities in the frail elderly. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2010;56:135-40.

Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: Objective: We have not identified any objective evidence in the literature about the effects of raloxifene treatment on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory markers. We investigated the antioxidant/anti-inflammatory effects of raloxifene and the association of its antioxidant/anti-inflammatory effects with body mass index (BMI) and postmenopausal period in women with osteoporosis (OP). Materials and Methods: Fourteen postmenopausal women with OP were enrolled in this study. Raloxifene hydrochloride 60 mg/day was administered for 6 months. The oxidant/antioxidant state was evaluated by measuring erythrocyte catalase (e-CAT) and paraoxonase (PON1) activities, levels of thiobarbituric acid (e-TBARS), serum diene, total antioxidant activity (AOA), trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity (TEAC), ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP) and anti-inflammatory effects were assessed by measuring tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, Interleukin (IL-6), IL-18, IL-10 and adiponectin levels. Plasma cytokine (TNF-alpha, IL-6, IL-10, IL-18) levels were measured by ELISA kits and antioxidant parameters were determined by spectrophotometry. Serum levels of all parameters were measured at baseline and end of the study. Results: IL-6 level was significantly decreased but IL-10 and PON1 levels were significantly increased after the study treatment (p<0.05). Raloxifene treatment significantly decreased IL-6 levels when postmenopausal period was longer than 10 years and BMI was <30 kg/m2 (p<0.05). Conclusion: Raloxifene resulted in a significant decrease in pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-6 and significant increases in anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 and antioxidant PON1 levels in women with OP. BMI and postmenopausal period are both associated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of raloxifene in postmenopausal period. Turk J Phys Med Re-hab 2012;58:29-35.

Abstract: Objective: To establish the efficacy of short-term outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic pulmonary diseases. Materials and Methods: Data from 65 outpatients [Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD, Group 1, n=44) and non-COPD (Group 2, n=21)] who presented to the rehabilitation center were analyzed retrospectively. Respiratory functions, blood gases, functional capacity (peak oxygen consumption (pVO2), shuttle walk test (SWT), endurance shuttle walk test (ESWT), dyspnea [Medical Research Council (MRC) Dyspnea Scale], quality of life (Saint George’s Respiratory Questionnaire, SGRQ), and psychological symptoms (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, HADS) tests before and after an 8-week rehabilitation program were obtained from patients’ medical records.Results: After the rehabilitation program, a significant improvement in pVO2, ESWT, SGRQ (symptom, activity, impact subscale and the total score), and MRC dyspnea scale (p<0.05) was observed in both groups, compared to the pre-rehabilitation period. In contrast, no significant improvement was observed in either groups following the rehabilitation program with respect to respiratory function tests (ZEV1 (ml,%), ZVK (ml,%), ZEV1/ZVK (%), blood gas measurements (paO2, paCO2, oxygen saturation), SWT, and HADS (p>0.05). On the other hand, in inter-group comparison, the significant low values of ZEV1 and ZEV1/ZVK in the pre-rehabilitation period in Group 1 compared to Group 2, also persisted after rehabilitation (p<0.05). The comparisons regarding the rest of parameters did not reveal any significant difference (p>0.05). Conclusion: Outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation improves functional capacity, dyspnea, and quality of life in patients with COPD and non-COPD. Whatever the dyspnea etiology was, a regular exercise program in the rehabilitation unit is recommended for patients with chronic pulmonary diseases. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2010;56:6-10.

Abstract: The new form of detective novel sample in Luise Rinsers detective Novel “Sündenbock” The Fundaments of This Research: The criminal novel, one of the subspecies of novel, is most widely-read type of maintenance literature known as trivial literature. However, in public opinion literature is not esteemed since the low level of literary quality. In order to change the image of traditional criminal novel, a social-political dimension has been attempted to get this type after 1930s. In the meantime, social, political, religious, moral, and feminist elements have been started to be used extensively in this type. Thus, a new theory has occured. The novel of Luise Rinser, Sündenbock, is a good example to this type of criminal novels.The Aim of This Research: This study has aimed to interpret the “Sündenbock” novel of Luise Rinser by social-critical point of view in accordance with the named theory above.Data Sources: At first, the novel of Luise Rinser has been used as a source in this study. Furthermore, theoretical studies on criminal novel, the publications about Luise Rinser and the studies on political literature have been used as a source.The Main Discussion: After World War the second, the type of criminal novel has been changed in German Literature. In this process, all types of political and social subjects have been used in literature. Luise Rinser is the pioneer of this change in criminal novel. a new dimension to the criminal novel and the subjects unrelated to social and politicalThe Result: The novel not only has brought extended the limits of this type, but also has changed ones in German Literature.

Abstract: This research has been conducted to examine the predictor effects that children’s temperament traits have on the social competence variable. In total of 112 preschool children (57 boys, 55 girls), and their mothers and teachers participated in the study. To collect data, the Social Competence and Behavior Evaluation scale, short form (SCBE-30) as well as the Short Temperament Scale for Children were completed by their mothers and teachers. According to the results, there is a significantly positive relationship between the level of social competence and the persistence and rhythmicity level of temperament traits. In other results there was found to be a significant positive relationship between the level of anger/aggression and the reactivity temperament trait. According to the results of the multiple regression analysis social competence also has a significant effect related to temperament traits.

Abstract: Every year, millions of people die or get seriously injured due to errors in health practices. Therefore, it is crucial that safe care is enabled and medical errors are minimized in nursing practices and rapid response is given to changing health conditions. In order to train nurses who have professional values and are efficient in their field, simulation-based ethical education has become popular today. Enabling patient safety and preserving legal rights are ethical obligations in terms of personal, institutional and vocational benefit. Simulation is an educational model consisting of ethical and legal concepts. In this context, it is envisaged that simulation-based training such as self-rule, patient consent, patient defensiveness, empathy, communication skills and care in special patient groups are integrated in all health fields. It is considered that this approach regarded as an innovative practice can contribute to the training of health team, which has ethical values. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the current state of the simulation-based ethical training under the light of literature review.

Abstract: Objective: To determine serum thiol/disulfide homeostasis in panic disorder (PD). Methods: Serum native thiol, total thiol, and disulfide levels were measured in the patients with 40 PD patients and 40 healthy subjects. Serum native thiol, total thiol, and disulfide levels were measured with a novel colorimetric, automated method. The thiol-disulfide ratio was also calculated. Results: The native thiol (p < 0.001) and total thiol (p < 0.001) levels, and the native thiol/total thiol (p < 0.001) ratio were significantly lower, whereas disulfide/native thiol (p < 0.001) and disulfide/total thiol (p < 0.001) ratio significantly increased in the PD patient group compared to the control group. The cut-off value was 92.26, 3.83 and 3.56 for native thiol/total thiol, disulfide/native thiol and disulfide/total thiol respectively. Conclusion: This is the first study in the literature to evaluate thiol-disulfide homeostasis in patients with PD. Our results suggest that the disulfide/thiol ratio is significantly greater in panic disorder patients.

Abstract: Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate of oxidative stress between the schizophrenic patients who regularly continued to Community Mental Health Centers (CMHC) and the patients who did not continue to CMHC. By this study, the effects of CMHC on oxidative stress between these two group of patients were assessed. Methods: Total number of 86 volunteers were enrolled in this study; 43 (27 males, 16 females) patients who regularly continued (average 2 years, at least 3 days a week) to CMHC and 43 (25 males, 18 females) patients who regularly did not continue to CMHC. Total antioxidative stress (TAS), total oxidative stress (TOS), oxidative stress index (OSI), paraoxanase (PON1), arylesterase (ARE) and total thiol (T.Thl) levels were measured with a novel automated method. Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) was used to assess the patients. Results: TOS, PANSS-Negative subscale and PANSS-Total subscale were found to be significantly higher in the group of patients who were not continuing to CMHC, than the group of patients who were continuing to CMHC. ARE and T.thl were found significantly lower in the group of patients who were not continuing to CMHC. There was a significant positive correlation between PANSS-Negative Subscale and TOS, OSI in the group of patients who were not continuing to CMHC. There was a positive correlation between PANSS-Negative Subscale and TOS in the group of patients who were continuing to CMHC. Conclusions: Oxidative stress and negative symptoms of schizophrenia in the group of patients who were continuing to CMHC were less than in the group of patients who were not continuing to CMHC. Thus, regular follow up at CMHC is very important in the treatment of schizophrenia patients.
