In vitro Inhibitory Effect of Alcohol Hand Rubs Against Staphylococcus aureus
Moon, Cheol ; Kim, Kyung-Mi ;
Journal of Korean Biological Nursing Science, volume 12, issue 2, 2010, Pages 73~80
Purpose: We tested the inhibitory effect of six purchasable alcohol hand rubs against Staphylococcus aureus. Methods: Five alcohol hand rubs were collected with random manner on the market and 1 alcohol hand rubs which is currently used in a hospital was included. we designed the experimental scheme on the basis of M7-A6 method of NCCLS. Each hand rubs were diluted to 1:1, 1:10, 1:100, 1:1,000 with tryptic soy broth. S. aureus was cultured. Turbidity and the colony counting was measured. Results: With dilution rate of 1:1, all products showed more than 95% of the inhibitory effect on bacterial growth. At 1:10 dilution, product
, 2, 3, 4, and 5 displayed the inhibitory effect of 97.77%, 92.38%, 78.19%, 97.42%, and 96.6%, respectively. But, the inhibitory effect of product
has been disappeared at that dilution. Over 1:100 dilution, all products lost their inhibitory effect except product
displayed more than 96% of inhibitory effect at all dilution rate, even at 1:100 and 1:1,000. Conclusion: We identified that inhibitory effect on bacterial growth of alcohol hand rubs was variable. We suggest that concentration of alcohol should be checked before choosing alcohol hand rubs. Further evaluation of in vivo study is needed.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare effects of intravenous fluid warming and forced-air warming on perioperative body temperature, Blood Pressure, Pulse and thermal discomfort after gastrectomy under general anesthesia. Methods: Data collection was performed from October, 2009 to February, 2010. The intravenous fluid warming group (27) was warmed through an IV line by an Animec set to
. The forced-air warming group (27) was warmed by Bair Hugger System. The warming continued from induction of general anesthesia to two hours after completion of surgery. The data was analyzed by t-test,
, repeated measures ANOVA using SPSS/WIN 17.0. Results: There was a significant difference of body temperature and thermal discomfort between the intravenous fluid warming group and the forced-air warming group. Conclusion: We need to explore the effects combination of the intravenous fluid warming and the forced-air warming, and other warming therapy and the efficiency of modalities with regards to cost benefit is also needed.

Journal of Korean Biological Nursing Science, volume 12, issue 2, 2010, Pages 89~96
Purpose: This study was aimed to develop and evaluate an obesity-management program for middle-aged obese women. Methods: Two 12 week session of the obesity-management programs constituted of weekly education and exercise such as aquarobic, pilates & yoga, and power-walking during 60 min for 3 days a week from June to December, 2006. The subjects included 47 middle-aged obese women between 30 and 60 yr. The effectiveness of the program was evaluated according to the change of body weight, body component, abdominal circumference, and serum lipid concentration. Data were measured by Inbody, tape measure, and blood test. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, and a paired t-test with an SPSS/PC. Results: There were statistically significant decreases in body weight, body mass index, body fat mass, Hemoglobin, abdominal circumference, total cholesterol level, and low density lipoprotein after the program was completed. But there were not statistically significant difference in fat free mass, muscle mass and triglyceride. Conclusion: The results of this study showed that an obesity-management program have positive effects in body composition, abdominal circumference, and lipid metabolism for middle-aged obese women.

Journal of Korean Biological Nursing Science, volume 12, issue 2, 2010, Pages 97~105
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of yoga and health calisthenics program in the middle aged women on physiological index and life satisfaction. Methods: This research was an one group pretest-posttest design. A pre and post measurement tool of the program was applied to measure body weight, obesity, rate of body fat, vital capacity, inhalation rate of oxygen, sit-up, grasping power, total physical response, body anteversion, body mass index (BMI), total physical strength, physical strength, health age, life satisfaction. Data collected from this tool was analyzed by SPSS in paired t-test. Results: The results were summarized as follows: yoga program group, the body weight, obesity, BMI, %body fat of the decreased. The results of pulmonary yoga group, vital capacity and inhalation rate of oxygen, total physical strength examination results showed a significant difference. Conclusion: In this study, the yoga program was effective in positive on body composition and physical strength, life satisfaction in middle aged women.
A Study on Self Management, Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), and Perceived Health Status for the Type II Diabetes Patients
Park, Ju-Young ;
Journal of Korean Biological Nursing Science, volume 12, issue 2, 2010, Pages 106~113
Purpose: This study is conducted to examine the relationship among self management, HbA1c, and perceived health status of type II diabetes patients in community health department. Methods: Data were collected from 93 type II diabetes patients who are registered at five community health center using comprehensive survey, modified self care behavior, blood glucose and HbA1c were assessed by nurses. The data was analyzed by the SPSS (14.0) computer program, and it included descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, and pearson's correlation coefficient. Results: There was significant relationship between perceived health status and HbA1c (r=-.252, p=.015). There was significant relationship between self management and HbA1c (r=-.279, p=.007). Conclusion: In order to control blood glucose in the type II diabetes patients, it is necessary to develop supportive self management programs by considering perceived health status.
Study on Knowledge Levels of Pre-dialysis, Chronic Renal Failure Patients at Glomerular Filtration Rates (GFRs) and Their Educational Demands

Purpose: To examine the levels of the disease-related knowledge and educational demands of pre-dialysis, chronic renal failure patients at different GFRs and stages. Methods: This study used a cross-sectional survey and aimed at 116 pre-dialysis, chronic renal failure patients, who were registered and received regular treatment from December 1 to December 31, 2009 at the nephrology departments of tertiary medical centers in Seoul. Stages were classified into Stage 3, 4 and 5 depending on GFR ranges. To measure the levels of knowledge and educational demands, the tool, which were first invented by Young Ae Lim (1996) and then modified by Hyo Sun Lim (2005) to adjust the knowledge and educational demands measuring tool for hemodialysis patients to pre-dialysis patients with chronic renal failure, was used. Collected data was analyzed with the SPSS WIN 12.0 program (average, standard deviation, Pearson's correlation coefficient, t-test and ANOVA). Results: There was a significant difference in the disease-related knowledge levels of the subjects at each stage (F=24.41, p=.000). The Scheffe post hoc test confirmed that patients at higher stages had higher levels of knowledge of their disease. Also, although the results showed that patients at higher stages had higher educational demands, there was no significant difference among the groups (F=1.259, p=.288). Conclusion: As patients have different levels of knowledge of the disease and educational demands depending on their stages, it is important to develop and use a systematic education program that reflects the demands and levels of patients at each stage in order to help pre-dialysis patients with chronic renal failure with self-management and improve their quality of life.
