There are about 10541 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Turkey. 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.
The aim of the study is to examine the effect of Reiki on fatigue, vital signs, and engraftment in bone marrow transplant patients.
Depression and anxiety symptoms are common during pregnancy which may disturb the intrauterine environment by affecting the mother's physiological responses to stress, and ultimately impair fetal and postnatal development. There is increasing evidence about the effects of maternal distress on young brain tissue leading to some structural changes. The neurological footprints of these structural changes on the young brain may be caught early in life by a video assessment of General Movements (GMs) quality.
It is important that effective catheter fixation will reduce the risk of catheter unavailability for specific reasons and the incidence of catheter-related complications. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of sterile transparent film dressing and tape methods used in pe- ripheral intravenous catheter application in newborns on the duration of catheter stay and the development of catheter-related complications.
This study was planned in a randomized controlled prospective experimental design in order to determine the effect of mobile-based education given to patients undergoing gynecological oncology surgery on quality of life. Research Hypotheses: H1. Education given with mobile application in gynecological oncology patients positively affects symptom control of patients. H2. The education given with the mobile application in gynecological oncology patients positively affects the quality of life of the patients.
Hemodialysis; It is the process of returning the liquid and solute content of the blood taken from the patient to the patient as a result of rearrangement by means of a membrane and with the help of a machine. A permanent vascular access that can be used for months or years is required for HD treatment to be sufficient for patients with end-stage renal disease to survive and improve their quality of life. For this reason, patients who will be treated for HD need to have an arterio-venous fistula (AVF), graft or catheter to ensure adequate blood flow. CRF patients treated with HD are exposed to 300-320 AVF cannulations per year on average. The size and length of the diameter of the fistula needles, the piercing process created in the skin, the advancement of the needles into the tissue during the procedure, the entry angle of the needles and the entry techniques cause the patients to experience pain during the procedure. Non-pharmacological methods frequently used in pain control include many applications such as distraction, massage, hot and cold application, aromatherapy. Distraction, which is one of the non-pharmacological methods, is a method that enables patients to focus their attention on a different point and to control and reduce the symptoms they experience. Methods such as listening to music, taking pictures, watching television, solving puzzles, daydreaming, deep breathing and coughing exercises, sphygmomanometer blowing, active listening, tapping, inflating balloons, distraction cards and using virtual reality glasses are used for this purpose. With the virtual reality glasses, the individual gets away from the environment with the glasses connected to the device worn on his head and the sounds coming from the headset, concentrates his attention on the image he watches and feels like he is in another world thanks to these five-dimensional glasses. The most basic feature that distinguishes virtual reality glasses from similar applications is that it gives people a real feeling. Virtual reality glasses, which are easy to apply and use, have no side effects, and can be effective in physical, psychological and social recovery, are an initiative that can be preferred in health applications. In this study, it is aimed to determine the effect of using virtual reality glasses on pain during fistula cannulation applied to hemodialysis patients. The hypotheses of the research; H₀: The use of virtual reality glasses is not effective in reducing the severity of pain. H1: The use of virtual reality glasses reduces the severity of pain.
Robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery has become an alternative to open or laparoscopic technique in various surgical fields. Robot assisted laparoscopic surgery is preferred by surgeons and patients due to easy accessibility, lower blood loss and lower transfusion rates. However, robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery can cause significant changes in cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic and cerebral physiology because it requires a deep trendy position. When long -lasting deep trendelenburg position is applied, the cerebral autoregulation is impaired. In the literature, the presence of cases with brain edema is shown. In recent years, many biomarkers have been used in the evaluation of brain damage. S100 Calcium Binding Protein (S100β), N Ron specific enolase (NSE), Glial Fibrils are among the biomarkers used to show acidic protein (GFAP) brain damage. The S100β is specific and is mainly produced by astrocytes and enters the bloodstream after neuron damage. Glial fibrils is an acidic protein (GFAP), a protein encoded by the GFAP gene in humans, an intermediate filament protein produced in the central nervous system. Neuron specific enolase (NSE) is one of the enzymes that increase brain damage encoded by Enolase 2 (ENO2) gene. Mini Mental State Examination and Montreal Cognitive Assessment will be performed to determine neurological changes developing in patients. The purpose of this study; Robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery is to examine the brain damage that may develop in patients due to deep trendelenburg position in patients with the said biomarkers and to evaluate the anesthesia methods applied in these surgery in line with the study results.
This study was carried out as a randomized controlled experimental study to determine the effect of inhaled lavender and bergamot oil on anxiety and sleep quality in patients hospitalized in the intensive care unit who had undergone surgical intervention. The universe of the research; Patients who were hospitalized in an Intensive Care Unit in Istanbul between May 2021 and October 2021, and the sample consisted of patients who met the criteria for inclusion in the study. Fifty-four patients who agreed to participate in the study and met the inclusion criteria were included. Lavender oil or bergamot oil or distilled water was administered to the patients 2 evenings by inhalation.
Purpose: The present study was conducted to determine the effect of repositioning frequency during phototherapy on bilirubin level and neonates comfort. Design and methods: This was a single-centered, single-blind, 3-arm, pretest-posttest parallel-group randomized controlled trial conducted in a neonatal intensive care unit. Participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups: Supine position group (n = 20), hourly position change group (n = 20), and control group (n = 20). The bilirubin level and comfort levels of the neonates were evaluated.
The primary aim of this study was to compare the acoustic sound quality of edentulous patients rehabilitated with two-implant overdentures or the all-on-4 concept. The secondary aims were to evaluate the effect of implant and prosthetic success on acoustics.
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) negatively affects the quality of life of millions of women. PMS is a common cyclic disorder characterized by somatic, cognitive, emotional and behavioral symptoms that usually occurs in young and middle-aged women, lasts during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and ends with the onset of menstruation.Studies have shown that women with high PMS symptoms are more inactive. Physical activity participation in women affects a wide spectrum of self-perceptions, including knowledge, social, and emotional self-perceptions. By determining which physical, emotional, social and academic/knowledge areas are affected by women, increasing their participation in physical activity can be achieved. The subject of the study is to determine the symptom severity of women with and without premenstrual syndrome and to examine how premenstrual syndrome affects physical activity self-worth.
