BACKGROUND VAP is defined as pneumonia in patients who use ventilators. The acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE II) scoring system was originally developed for predicting mortality in patients who were admitted to the intensive care unit. Due to the complexity, a simpler score called IBMP-10 was developed. We designed the study to confirm(More)
BACKGROUND Weaning decision for the patients on a mechanical ventilation (MV) device is often made based on personal judgments and experiences, which results in longer MV length of stay and higher costs. Therefore, the present study aimed to the effect of application of Burn's wean assessment program on MV length of stay among the patients hospitalized in(More)
Temperature-dependent development and population growth parameters of the fungus gnat, Lycoriella auripila (Winnertz), on button (737 and A15) mushroom were evaluated at nine constant temperatures, ranging from 8, 10, 12.5, 15, 20, 22.5, 25, 27, and 30 degrees C and developmental rates were modeled as a function of temperature. At 25 and 27 degrees C, an(More)
BACKGROUND Epilepsy affects children's quality of life and leads to social and mental problems. Promoting the mental health of children, especially epileptic ones, and preventing problems affecting them constitute major concerns for every country. Mental health promotion requires intervention programs. OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND Critical care patients are at higher risk for untreated pain. Pain has persistent and untreated effects on most of the body systems and results in development of complications, chronic pain, and increased length of stay. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of the implementation of a pain management program on the length of stay in(More)
BACKGROUND Appropriate nutritional support is effective on achievement of expected outcomes in intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Although several studies have suggested different conclusions about the effectiveness of tube feeding methods, there is no specific program of nutritional support for patients who have been hospitalized. There is a possibility(More)
BACKGROUND Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a common side effect in patients with an endotracheal tube. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of an upper respiratory care program on the incidence of VAP in mechanically ventilated patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this clinical trial, 62 patients with endotracheal tube were selected and randomly(More)
