Design and Construction of 3 Standard Lead Electrocardiogram Monitoring System

ABSTRACT The challenge posed by cardiovascular disease and the associated casualties has taken a centre stage in policies relating to global health and wellbeing. A lot of technological innovations have been made in this direction with attendant challenges. A standard ECG machine was constructed using affordable locally sourced discrete components to achieve the same objective. Simple Operational Amplifiers, few discrete components, signal pick-up devices and power source were assembled to a...

PRODUCTION OF SOAP USING CHAMOMILE OIL

SOAP PRODUCTION USING CHAMOMILE OIL Background of the studyWhat is soap? Soaps are divided into two main types: Toilet and Industrial.These are few definition of soap. One of definition, soap is an alkali metal salt of a long-chain fatty acid and is manufactured using vegetable and animal fats. Besides, soap is a chemical compound or mixture of chemical compounds forming from the interaction of fatty acids and alkaline solution. The alkaline solutions often called lye usually used in making s...

AYURVEDIC PERSPECTIVE ON PATHOLOGY OF COVID 19

ABSRACT  Covid 19, a disease which created havoc in the world by its severe acute respiratory corona virus syndome-2 [SARS-coV-2], rigorous studies have been taking place to study the cause, pathogenesis, symptoms, treatment protocols of the disease. Ayurveda has considered it as a type of a janapadodhwamsa , the infection is caused due to virus which in Ayurveda is considered as, bhuta[microbes] which is a agantuja hetu [external factors]  This jivanu/microbe enters the body and affects ...

Prevalence Of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria And Antimicrobial Susceptibility Among Women Attending Antenatal Clinic Of Gatundu Hospital In Kiambu County, Kenya

ABSTRACT Asymptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy is associated with risk of preterm birth and pyelonephritis if untreated. The apparent decline in immunity of pregnant women appears to promote the growth of both commensal and non-commensal microorganisms. Women with asymptomatic bacteria in the early pregnancy develop symptomatic bacteriuria later in pregnancy. The incidence of antibiotic resistance has been steadily increasing over the past few years resulting in limitation of therapeutic...

Auditory Screening Of Basic School Children: A Comparison Of Pure-Tone Audiometry And Impedance Audiometry

ABSTRACT Background: School age children are faced with various forms of sensory disorders which impair academic, social and functional development. One of the most prevalent forms of sensory disorder is hearing loss. Auditory screening serves as an important process in identifying children with undetected hearing loss. The use of pure-tone audiometry has been the back bone of assessing children. In Ghana, auditory screening of school children has not been efficient due largely to the scarci...

Design Of Emergency And Trauma Hospital From A Biomedical Engineer Perspective

Abstract This project is Design of a hospital for emergency and trauma services in order to improve the healthcare services and to eliminate the emergency department deficiency . The design depend on the interviews and visits held in different facilities were the data collected and analysed to build the appropriate design. A plan has been drawn up to provide the hospital with all the required equipment in every single department as shown in the design model.The simulation program (ARCHICAD) w...

Impact of Adoption of Koryat Plough on Groundnuts Production )A Case Study Ghubish Locality-West Kordofan state)

Abstract The effect of the adoption of koryat plough on the production of peanuts (groundnuts) in Ghbeish locality. the importance of studying : The peanut is the main cash crop in ghbeish locality and is the main feed for animal feeding, especially sheep, as is the result of the source contributes to national income, so it is necessary to stand on the effect of the adoption of the use of farmers to the koryat plough and then put proposals and appropriate solutions. Study Society: The study ...

Study Of The Internal Derangement Of The Knee Using Ultrasound And MRI

Abstract   Musculoskeletal sonography is rapidly evolving modality which is gaining popularity for the evaluation and management of joint and soft tissue disorder the purpose of this exhibit was to study the internal derangement of the knee using ultrasound and MRI. All patients (50 patients) were scanned by MRI 1.5 Tesla as standard and by ultrasound using high linear frequency transducer. The study took place in Sudan Khartoum 2014-2015. The part examined in the knee include meniscuses (La...

Measurement of Prothrombin Time, Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time, Fibrinogen Concentration, Platelets count and indices in healthy police dogs in Sudan

ABSTRACT The study aimed to determine the normal values of Prothrombin Time (PT) Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT), Fibrinogen Concentration (FIB), platelets count (PLT), mean platelets volume (MPV), plateletcrit (PCT) and platelet distribution width (PDW) for healthy police dogs in Sudan and to assess the effect of breed and sex on these parameters. Forty six dogs were used; 20 Labrador Retriever and 26 German Shepherd dogs comprising 21 males and 25 females, 20-83 months old. Bl...

Computerized Central Blood Bank Management System

Abstract Blood is a vital constituent in human body that is indispensable for human life, it supplies nutrient and oxygen to all body cells, because of this essential role, blood bank was introduce in this research to help in collecting, separating and storing blood by using computerized information system to organized and maintain information about donors, and blood groups. Manual systems as compared to computerized systems are time consuming and costly, in addition to human errors. A comp...

Speckle Noise Reduction In Ultrasound Images Using Modified Hybrid Median Filter

Abstract: Ultrasound Imaging Is A Widely Used In Medical Diagnosing Imaging Techniques. Because Of Following: Low Cost, Painless And Considered Harmless To The Patients. However, The Main Problem Facing Ultrasound Images Is Speckle Noise, Which Is Inherent Multiplicative Noise That Reduces The Overall Quality Of The Images In Term Of Resolution And Contrast. Edge Detection In Medical Image Is An Important Task For Object Recognition Of The Human Organs, And It Is An Essential Pre-Processi...

Application Of Fat Suppression Effect In MRI

Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools of modern healthcare. The signal in medical MRI predominantly originates from water and fat molecules. Separation of the two components into water-only and fat-only images can improve diagnosis, and is the premier non-invasive method for measuring the amount and distribution of fatty tissue. Fat-water imaging (FWI) enables fast fat/water separation by model-based estimation from chemical shift encoded dat...

Assessment Of Patient’s Safety

Abstract Patient safety has become an international priority with major research programs being carried out. The aim of this research is to assess the concept of patient safety. Two artificial neural network systems were designed by using questionnaire for the classification of an idle and non-idle hospital. After training and testing the systems results were obtained for classification of data. The Two type of neural networks (Feed Forward Back propagation and Competitive neural network arc...

Implementation Of Hadamard Encoding And Reconstruction Of MEGA-Edited Spectroscopy (HERMES) For Quantification Of Ɣ-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) And Glutathione (GSH

Abstract The present study aimed to accelerate and improve accuracy of ɣ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutathione (GSH) quantification. These metabolites, present at low concentrations in the brain, are challenging to detect using MR spectroscopy due to the fact that their resonance frequencies overlap with those of other more abundant metabolites. The advanced spectral editing techniques involving J-difference editing that are required to resolve the overlapping signals of these low concen...
