BACKGROUND Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is common in the industrial setting. However,there is a controversy about the sole role of occupational ergonomic hazards in CTS. OBJECTIVES This study was conducted among assembling workers of a detergent factory and computer users with the aims of A) determination of CTS prevalence and B) evaluation of personal(More)
OBJECTIVES To define variations of the depressor septi muscle in Iranians; to provide guidance for modification of this muscle during rhinoplasty in patients with an active muscle and short upper lip; and to correlate our findings with our clinical experience to develop the applied algorithms. METHODS This study was conducted by dissecting 82 depressor(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid Ultrasound in Shock (RUSH) is a recently reported emergency ultrasound protocol designed to help clinicians better recognize distinctive shock etiologies in a short time. We tried to evaluate the accuracy of early RUSH protocol performed by emergency physicians to predict the shock type in critically ill patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Ergonomic factors predispose nurses to low back pain (LBP). Few studies have clarified the role of workplace violence in LBP occurrence. OBJECTIVES The present study was designed to investigate acute and chronic LBP in Iranian nurses and its association with exposure to physical violence as well as its personal and ergonomic risk factors.

A switch controller which achieves low-latency deterministic `Guaranteed-Rate' (GR) connections in packet switched networks is demonstrated on a `Field Programmable Gate Array' (FPGA) device. A Software Defined Networking (SDN) control plane can configure the FPGA controllers to establish deterministic GR connections in a forwarding plane of IP routers or(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid ultrasound in shock (RUSH) is the most recent emergency ultrasound protocol, designed to help clinicians better recognize distinctive shock etiologies in a shorter time frame. OBJECTIVES In this study, we evaluated the accuracy of the RUSH protocol, performed by an emergency physician or radiologist, in predicting the type of shock in(More)
OBJECTIVES The primary goal of this study was to evaluate the incidence and characteristics of posttraumatic headache attributed to mild brain injury in military personnel in Iran within a prospective and observational study design. METHODS A prospective observational descriptive study was conducted with a cohort of military personnel under military(More)
BACKGROUND Military personnel are usually exposed to high levels of impulse noise (IN) which can lead to hearing loss. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of relatively low level exposure of impulse noise (IN) during shooting practice on hearing using pure tone audiometry (PTA) and transiently evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE)(More)
Statistics is a science with many applications in trauma research and several other fields. Prior to conducting research, the study problem must be clearly defined; then, measurement tools for the study variables should be determined, next, data collection instruments as well as survey questionnaires should be obtained (1). Selection of the study design and(More)
