Sindirim Asclepiades’in ilaç teorisinde birincil faktör olmuştur. Asclepiades, “psikojenik denge” sağlamak amacıyla akıl (mental) hastalarının tedavisinde müzikle terapiyi kullanılmıştır.Asclepiades, savunuculuğu ile atom ya da parçacık teorisinde bir değişiklik yapan tıbbi bir yöntem geliştirdi; bu nedenle Asclepiades psikoterapi, fizik tedavi ve moleküler tıp alanında öncü bir hekim olarak kabul edilmektedir.Hippocrat, klinik tıbbın babası olarak kabul edilirken; Asclepiades de moleküler tıbbın babası olarak kabul edilmektedir. Okuyacağınız yazı, Anadolu topraklarındaki özellikle Konuralp bölgesindeki, kültür mirasına ve tıp tarihinin ilginç yönlerine hekimlerimizin dikkatini çekmek için kısaca hazırlanmış bir derleme yazısıdır ; Asclepiades (Greek: Ἀσκληπιάδης; c. 124 or 129 – 40 BC),sometimes called Asclepiades of Bithynia or Asclepiades ofPrusias, was a physician born at Prusias in Bithynia (currentlyKonuralp) in Asia Minor and flourished at Rome. He establishedmedicine near the end of the 2nd century BC. Cito tuto jucundemeaning to treat his patients "swiftly, safely, and sweetly" was amotto that he followed. Digestion was a primary factor inAsclepiades' drug theory. Asclepiades used music therapy totreat mentally ill patients in order to maintain "psychogenicequilibrium". Asclepiades advocated humane treatment ofmental disorders and founded his medical practice on amodification of the atomic or corpuscular theory, thereforeAsclepiades is considered to be a pioneer physician inpsychotherapy, physical therapy and molecular medicine.

After their initial evaluation during the third trimester the mothers were re-evaluatedin their second and third month after birth.Results: Mean age of the mothers was 28.2±4.2 years. Prepartum and postpartum evaluationsof the mothers with BDI revealed 31% and 29% depression ratios, respectively. According tothe STAI-I when evaluated at prepartum and postpartum periods, 47% and 49% of the motherwere significantly anxious. It was 71% and 63% for prepartum and postpartum evaluations withSTAI-II, respectively. There were statistically significant difference between prepartum andpostpartum periods in terms of upper threshold of the BDI and STAI-II scores (p=0.002 andp=0.014).Conclusion: Mothers seem to be under as high risk for depression and anxiety at prepartumperiod as they are at postpartum period.

The relationship between iron deficiency anemia and gestational status in women

In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between iron deficiency anemia and gestational status (gravida, parity, abortus and living child) in women.Data of female patients who referring to Family Practice Department of Dicle University Medical Faculty in two months period (September, October 2007) was surveyed retrospectively. Hemoglobin, hematocryte, iron, binding capacity of iron in serum, age, gravidity, parity and abortion of patients were recorded. Whose transferring saturation index below 20 percent and hematocryte below 35 percent were considered as anemia.Of 65 patients taken part into the study, 23.1% were anemic and 76.9% were normal. Anemia was detected 26.7% of the patients whose gravidities were ≤3, while among patients, having gravidities >3, anemic patients were 73.3%. These ratios were 68% and 32% respectively, between no anemic patients (p=0.037).In this study, iron deficiency anemia has been detected more frequently by increasing gravidity and parity among women. Therefore in order to prevent anemia in women, effective family planning methods have to be used; ladies must be informed and heedful about iron deficiency anemia and iron deficiency monitoring as well as iron supplement therapy must be performed not only during pregnancy.

Compare of Structural and Functional Changes in Athletes, Hypertensive Patients and Healthy Sedentary Control Subjects

To asses cardiac structure and function in athletes, hypertensive patients and healthy sedentary control subjects by Doppler-echocardiographyOne hundred athletes, 45 hypertensive patients and 45 healthy sedentary control subjects volunteered to take part in the study, cardiac dimensions and function were determined by 2-D Doppler –echocardiography and were compared by One Way Anova test.There was not any significant relation in interventriculer septal thickness (IVST) between athletes and hypertensive patients (0,89±0.11-0,87±0.15). But there was a significant increase in athletes compared with sedentary subjects (0,89±0.11-0,77±0.14).there was a significant relation in deceleration time (DT) and in ratio of peak mitral velocity to mitral flow velocity at the time of atrial contraction (mEv/mAv) which is important for diastolic function compared three group (patients group has in favour of diastolic dysfunction, the other groups has normal limits of DT and mEv/mAv. Values of DT respectively athletes, patients, sedentary group (154±24, 240±54, 210±39). Values of mEv/mAv respectively athletes, patients, sedentary group (1.5±0.2, 1.1±0.2, 1.0±01).Although sedentary subject’s IVST was normal, athletes and hypertensive patients had increased IVST; but these increases did not impair diastolic function of heart also diastolic parameters in sedentary subjects was bigger than athletes.
