TL;DR: It can be established that hypertension and diabetes mellitus are a stroke risk factors and correlated in patients with atherosclerosis.
Abstract: Background Stroke is becoming a major challenge in healthcare systems, and this has necessitated the study of the various risk factors. As the number of people with hypertension, diabetes mellitus and obesity increases, the problem is expected to worsen. This review paper evaluates what can be done to eliminate or reduce the risk of stroke. Objective The aim of the research is to evaluate the risk factors for stroke. The paper also aims to understand how these risks can be handled to avoid incidences of stroke. Method Published clinical trials of stroke risk factors studies were recognised by a search of EMBASE and MEDLINE databases with keywords hypertension, blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, stroke or cardiovascular disease, or prospective study, and meta-analysis. Results The findings of this review are that the prevention of stroke starts with identifying risk factors for stroke, most of the patients diagnosed with stroke have various risk factors. Consequently, it is a very significant to identify all the risk factors for stroke as well as to teach the patient how to dominate them. Conclusion after summarising all the studies mentioned in the paper, it can be established that hypertension and diabetes mellitus are a stroke risk factors and correlated in patients with atherosclerosis.

TL;DR: Collaboration is required between policymakers, healthcare professionals, business and community leaders, schools and local organisations to create suitable environments that support healthy lifestyles for children and young people.
Abstract: BACKGROUND Childhood obesity has a worldwide association with serious health problems and complications that increase the risk of illness and death. AIM To identify and assess the factors contributing to overweight and obesity among school students in north Jordan. METHOD A descriptive cross-sectional study involving 1,554 students was conducted between October 2014 and February 2015. RESULTS More than two thirds (70%) of participants were normal weight (5th percentile-<85th percentile), while 12% were overweight and 13% were obese. The prevalence of obesity was high (20%) among those eating snacks three times per day. The prevalence of overweight was high (12%) among those who followed no regular physical activity programme. CONCLUSION Collaboration is required between policymakers, healthcare professionals, business and community leaders, schools and local organisations to create suitable environments that support healthy lifestyles for children and young people.

TL;DR: In this paper , a capillary electrophoretic method for the chiral separation and quantification of mitiglinide (MTG) enantiomers is described (less than 9.5 min) with resolution value Rs = 5.25 and after performing the dynamically coating for the bare fused capillary.
Abstract: A capillary electrophoretic method for the chiral separation and quantification of mitiglinide (MTG) enantiomers is described (less than 9.5 min) with resolution value Rs = 5.25 and with excellent peak shapes after performing the dynamically coating for the bare fused capillary. The study aims to develop and validate a novel and simple method for the separation and quantification of MTG enantiomers using CE after dynamic coating the capillary wall using the hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) coating agent. Dynamic coating procedure of the capillary inner surface is conducted via rapid flushes using 0.1 M sodium hydroxide, water, and aqueous solution containing HEC, and hydroxypropyl-γ-cyclodextrin (HP-γ-CD). Besides buffer was used for the dynamic coating process in addition to its use as the separation medium. When the dynamic coating was used, peak symmetry was improved. A bare fused-silica capillary was used throughout the separation after being coated using HEC dissolved in the background electrolyte (BGE) of 50 mM Na₂HPO₄ - 1 M H₃PO₄ solution; pH 8.5; containing 25 25 mg mL-1 of each HP-γ-CD and HEC. The dynamic coating procedure achieved an improvement in migration time as well as peak area precision. The adsorbed coating agent showed slight interactions with MTG, providing efficient separation with outstanding durability and reproducibility at slightly alkaline conditions (pH 8.5). Acceptable validation criteria for selectivity, linearity, precision, and accuracy were also studied. The newly developed method was effectively applied to the assay of enantiomers of MTG in pharmaceutical formulations. Additionally, it was proven to have the advantages of being simple, rapid, and accurate.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors examined the effect of a care pathway on the autonomy, teamwork, and burnout levels among coronary care nurses in a tertiary hospital and found that the care pathway was associated with reduced nurse burnout.
Abstract: A care pathway is a structured care plan based on best clinical practice for a particular patient group. It reorganizes a complex process by providing structured, standardized care and supportive multidisciplinary teamwork. Although care pathways are used worldwide, the impact and benefit of a care pathway for coronary care practices have been minimally debated. This preliminary study aimed to examine the effect of a care pathway on the autonomy, teamwork, and burnout levels among coronary care nurses in a tertiary hospital.A preliminary study was conducted using a pre/posttest one-group quasi-experimental design. A self-administered questionnaire was provided to 37 registered nurses from the cardiac ward of a tertiary hospital. The care pathway was developed on the basis of the current literature, local guidelines, and expert panel advice. The autonomy, teamwork, and burnout levels at the beginning and 4 months after disseminating the care pathway were measured. Implementing the care pathway included educational sessions, training in using the care pathway, and site visits to monitor nursing practices.Most of the respondents were female (94.6%; n = 35), the median age of the respondents was 26.5 years (interquartile range [IQR] = 23-31), and the median length of the clinical experience was 4 years (IQR = 2-8). A statistically significant reduction in the mean burnout score was observed (mean of 58.12 vs 52.69, P < .05). A slight improvement in autonomy level was found, although it was not statistically significant. No statistically significant improvement was found in the teamwork levels.The care pathway was associated with reduced nurse burnout. The results showed a slight improvement in autonomy level among coronary care nurses after implementing the care pathway. From a practical viewpoint, the current study can help policy makers and managers reduce burnout. This study highlights the importance of using care pathways as a tool to reorganize the care process and improve the working environment. Managers must support nursing decisions and provide continuous education to enhance nurses' autonomy, which may increase understanding of respective roles, leading to higher levels of teamwork. However, with a small sample size, caution must be applied, as the findings might not be generalizable.
