COVID-19 pandemic was reported significantly in the literature as a situation that affected the mental health status of healthcare workers in general and nurses in particular. However, there is a lack of studies exploring the levels and associated factors of depression among Jordanian nurses amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Aim: The present study aimed at assessing the levels of depression and its associated factor among Jordanian nurses amid the COVID-19 pandemic. King Abdullah University Hospital and Princess Rahma Pediatric Hospital, Jordan. A cross-sectional descriptive study was performed in the period between Feb-2002 and Apr-2022 at King Abdullah University Hospital and Princess Rahma Pediatric Hospital, Jordan. The study used the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-21) over a sample of 205 nurses. The data was analyzed using the Statistical Package of Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings of the study revealed that 46.8% (n=96) of the nurses were normal, 21% (n=43) had mild mood disturbances, 5.9% (n=12) showed borderline clinical depression, 15.1% (n=31) had moderate depression, 3.4% (n=7) had severe depression and 7.8% (n=16) had extremely severe depression. In addition, the results showed that there was a significant association between levels of depression among nurses and their socio-demographic characteristics (age (p=0.009), gender (p=0.001), years of experience (p=0.030), marital status (p=0.010) and working area (0.041)). The study concluded that there is an increasing prevalence of depression among Jordanian nurses amid the COVID-19 pandemic and these levels were affected by nurses' characteristics.
The govern and change of ingredient for the all of amount that content carbon paste electrode(CPE ) to give the value of response for the electrode increase (50 times) in make optimize of the amount (ion pair) and (y) value in Nernistain equation is (7.7834 - 25.0576) and this lead to the slope value significantly is change ( 17.9252 - 57.70108) mV/decade, and also optimize other content of (CPE) as multi wall carbon nanotube (MWCNTs), three type of plasticizer and graphite, all these content will illustrate the extent of their effect on the efficiency of electrode in case of changing their quantity until we reach the highest value of the slope.
Many studies show that it might be challenging to identify in order to diagnose the usual Interstitial Pneumonia, this study would assess the effectiveness of chest computed tomography to differentiate Connective Tissue Disease-Associated Interstitial Lung Disease from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. a retrospective evaluation of 48 patients admitted to our hospital was conducted 2019-2022, who had a UIP pattern on a diagnostic-quality CT study and a multidisciplinary diagnosis of CTD-ILD or IPF. 31 (64.6 %) were male, and 17 (35.4 %) were female with a mean age of 56.96±11.31 years. 34 (70.8%) had IPF, 14 (29.2%) had CTD-ILD. 40 (41.7%) of them smokers. Rheumatoid arthritis was the most common type of CTD-ILD. There were significant differences between IPF and CTD-ILD in terms of the distribution of lung involvement. Also significancy founded in the prevalence of ground-glass opacities, consolidation, honeycomb lung, and lymphadenopathy. the sensitivity and specificity values show that different imaging features can help distinguish between IPF and CTD-ILD with varying accuracy. CT can help in diagnosing the causative features of usual Interstitial Pneumonia in most of patients diagnosed with UIP had IPF.
