There are about 54 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Bahrain. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
Caudal epidural block CEB is the most commonly performed neuraxial block to provide effective pain relief and analgesia in patients undergoing infra-umbilical pediatric surgery. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of adding CEB to general anesthesia in terms of intra- and post-operative pain management. Design: Double-unblinded. Prospective. randomized. Study, Setting: salmanyia medical complex. intraoperative, postoperative recovery room Methods: A total of 72 patients American Society of Anesthesiology physical status classification ASA 1. Patients were equally allocated into two groups Group A and with CEB and Group B without CEB, aged two months to six years. respectively, over a study period of six months. Both groups were compared based on hemodynamic stability, level of sedation, analgesia need, pain score, and parental satisfaction. Postoperative pain was evaluated by four different pain scales.
Background: Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is a recognized healthcare-associated infection in lungs parenchyma that occurs in patients in which they are connected to mechanical ventilator. And this infection will occur after completing 48 hours of connection to the ventilator. Aim study aims to evaluate the effect of implementing VAP prevention bundle training program on nurses' knowledge and compliance among nurses in intensive care unit in Salmaniya Medical complex in Bahrain. Methodology: A quantitative quasi- experimental study was conducted in the main ICU of Salmaniya Medical complex in Bahrain. Purposive sampling technique was used, and 58 ICU staff nurses were enrolled at data collection period. Tools used for data collection was a self-administrative questionnaire to assess ICU nurses' knowledge and observational checklist was used to assess their compliance. Data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistics
The United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Kingdom of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and Qatar have authorised sotrovimab for emergency use. Local experience among physicians include recent successful COVID-19 vaccine pivotal studies supported by the authorities' willingness to expedite understanding of the role of monoclonal antibodies such as sotrovimab in the management of COVID-19 and expertise to integrate the latest knowledge into the local or regional COVID-19 management guidelines. The aim of this study is to collect local clinical evidence for sotrovimab effect in the real-life setting in the UAE and the Kingdom of Bahrain. Overall study population is 20,000 and the duration of the study will be approximately six months from recruitment date.
The study is intended to estimate the proportion and clinical management of people with type 2 diabetes having atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases or who are at high risk to develop atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Participants will be asked to give information about their health. Partipants will continue normal way of life and will not get any medication other than those prescribed to them by the doctor. The study will last for about 6 months.
Early identification of a patient with infection who may develop sepsis is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, this remains elusive because no single clinical measure or test can reflect complex pathophysiological changes in patients with sepsis. However, multiple clinical and laboratory parameters indicate impending sepsis and organ dysfunction. Screening tools using these parameters can help identify the condition, such as SIRS, quick SOFA (qSOFA), National Early Warning Score (NEWS), or Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS). The 2016 SCCM/ESICM task force recommended using qSOFA, while the 2021 Surviving Sepsis Campaign strongly recommended against its use compared with SIRS, NEWS, or MEWS as a single screening tool for sepsis or septic shock. We hypothesised that qSOFA has greater prognostic accuracy than SIRS and EWS (NEWS/NEWS2/MEWS).
This is a multicenter, prospective, single-arm observational non-interventional study (NIS), which will be conducted in various countries in the Middle East and India.
Study Design: This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 clinical efficacy study evaluating NONS in adult volunteers as a treatment for high-risk asymptomatic and symptomatic individuals with mild COVID-19 infection. thru facility).
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is potentially a deadly disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that targets the lung mainly, resulting in respiratory tract infections in humans. It has developed into a pandemic with serious global public health problems. Recent research has shown that the new SARS-CoV-2 variants reduces the efficacy of the vaccinations and are predominantly more transmissible or infective. A few countries namely Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Turkey have recently started introducing a booster dose following primary two doses of the COVID-19 immunization series. This study aims to identify which booster dose is more effective; taking a booster dose from the same vaccine initially taken or a booster dose from a different vaccine than initially taken.
Observational study is to demonstrate a clinically significant reduction of ionizing radiation exposure during transcatheter ablation of supraventricular tachycardias using the EnSite precision mapping system in a real-world clinical setting without compromising efficacy and safety.
Dried dates (Phoenix dactylifera) have the second highest phytoestrogen content of any fruit, only secondary to dried apricots with 329ug of phytoestrogens per 100g. The date palm is one of oldest planted trees on the earth at around 2,000 years old. Dates are nutritionally rich and a good source of fiber and carbohydrates and their potential medicinal and nutritional effects have been suggested in a number of studies. Date sugars have also been shown to be phenol rich, potent antioxidant, and strong inhibitor of α -glycosidase that may also have benefit in diabetes. In addition, dates are rich in micronutrients that may also have benefit for diabetes and insulin resistance . Dates have a glycemic index of 50 and studies have shown that the consumption of differing varieties of dates do not significantly affect the acute glycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of date phytoestrogens on HbA1C and fasting blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes in comparison to the same glycemic load of raisins that have low phytoestrogen content.
