Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl 2020 Sep-Oct;31(5):1042-1050

Department of Nursing Training and Development, Medipol Mega University Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Organ transplantation is lifesaving for individuals with end-stage organ failure. However, many people are still waiting for organ transplantation due to religious beliefs and the perspectives of society. Many studies on organ donation have shown that the knowledge levels and attitudes of nurses have an important effect on organ donation rates. The aim of this study was to evaluate the views and attitudes of nurses about ethical and cultural issues related to transplantation. This descriptive study was conducted on 220 nurses who worked in a university hospital in Istanbul, Turkey. Data were collected using a questionnaire form included sociodemographic characteristics, ethical-cultural values, and knowledge levels about transplantation of the participants. Descriptive statistics and Chi-square test were used for the analysis of data. The mean age of the participants was 24.8 ± 6.04 years. Sixty percent of the participants reported that a person with brain-death was the most ideal candidate for organ donation. Seventy-seven percent of them suggested that organ sale was the most common ethical problem in organ transplantation. Sixty-three percent reported that the patient awaiting transplantation for a long time had priority order for organ transplantation. Most of the nurses (91.0%) believed that organ transplantation was religiously and culturally appropriate; however, 67.7% of them reported that it was not considered appropriate by the society due to religious and cultural beliefs. Sixty-two percent of them suggested that the society believed that organ transplantation was unlawful (haram) religiously. Nurses generally had positive views and attitudes about organ transplantation.

Transcutaneous bilirubin levels of newborn infants performed abdominal massage: A randomized controlled trial.

J Spec Pediatr Nurs 2019 Apr 28;24(2):e12237. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Neonatology, Medipol University Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Purpose: This study was designed as a randomized controlled trial to determine the effect of abdominal massage on bilirubin levels of newborn infants.

Design And Methods: The sample group consisted of 90 newborn infants (experimental group: 44; control group: 46) who were followed in a university hospital after birth between March and August 2017. The data were collected using an Information Form, Observation Form, and Transcutaneous Bilirubin Level Meter. Bilirubin levels were measured 1 hr after the first breastfeeding in both groups. The abdominal massage was performed for 5 min in each session, was continued in three sessions per day; was completed in totally six sessions for 2 days in infants in the experimental group. The second bilirubin measurements were repeated at the 48th hour after the birth and bilirubin levels were compared in two groups. The Student t test was used to evaluate the normally distributed data and the Mann-Whitney U test was used to carry out statistics in nonnormal distribution of quantitative data.

Results: The bilirubin levels of the groups (experimental group: 1.06 ± 0.92; control group: 1.01 ± 0.98) were statistically similar before abdominal massage, t(88) = 0.25, p = 0.803. The difference of the bilirubin levels was compared in the groups before and after abdominal massage. The increase of bilirubin levels in the experimental group (1.96 ± 1.69 mg/dl) was statistically significantly lower compared with the control group (2.80 ± 2.30 mg/dl), t(88) = -1.974, p = 0.048.

Practice Implications: Abdominal massage is effective to reduce bilirubin levels of newborn infants.

Effectiveness of ShotBlocker for Immunization Pain in Full-Term Neonates: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

J Perinat Neonatal Nurs 2017 Apr/Jun;31(2):166-171

Pediatric Nursing Department (Dr Caglar), Fundamentals of Nursing Department (Dr Büyükyılmaz), and Public Health Nursing Department (Dr Coşansu), Faculty of Nursing, Istanbul University, Istanbul, Turkey; and Nursing Training and Development Department (Ms Çağlayan), Medipol Mega Hospital, Istanbul Medipol University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Nonpharmacologic strategies exist to manage procedural pain in healthy newborn infants. The aim of this prospective randomized controlled trial (RCT) was to examine the efficacy of ShotBlocker for managing injection pain associated with the first intramuscular hepatitis B vaccine given to healthy full-term neonates. This randomized controlled trial study was conducted in a private university hospital in Istanbul, Turkey, in which 100 healthy term neonates were randomly assigned to either a ShotBlocker (n = 50) or control group (n = 50). The Neonatal Infant Pain Scale scores of the neonates in the ShotBlocker and control groups were compared before, during, and after the injections, and the physiological parameters were compared before and after the procedure. The pain scores of the neonates during (ShotBlocker group: 1.64 ± 0.80; control group: 2.96 ± 0.73) and after (ShotBlocker group: 0.74 ± 0.66; control group: 1.42 ± 0.76) the injection procedure were lower in the ShotBlocker group than in the control group (P = .000). The postinjection heart rate in the infants in the ShotBlocker group (145.02 ± 13.50) was found to be lower than in those for whom ShotBlocker was not used (150.24 ± 13.36) (P = .05). The use of ShotBlocker during the hepatitis B vaccine in term neonates is effective in reducing the acute pain.

The effect of total hysterectomy on sexual function and depression.

Pak J Med Sci 2015 ;31(3):700-5

Sabiha Caglayan, Medipol University Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background & Objectives: To investigate whether the operations of Type 1 hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy performed for benign reasons have any effect on sexual life and levels of depression.

Method: This is a multi-center, comparative, prospective study. Healthy, sexual active patients aged between 40 and 60 were included into the study. Data was collected with the technique of face-to-face meeting held three months before and after the operation by using the demographic data form developed by the researchers i.e. the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and the Beck Depression Scale (BDS).

Results: In the post-operative third month, there was an improvement in dysuria in terms of symptomatology (34% and 17%, P<0.001), while in FSFI (41.47±25.46 to 34.20±26.67, P<0.001) and BDS (12.87±11.19 to 14.27±10.95, P=0.015) there was a deterioration. For FSFI, 50-60 age range, extended family structure; and for BDS, educational status, not working and extended family structure were statistically important confounding factors for increased risk in the post-operative period.

Conclusion: While hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy performed for benign reasons brought about short-term improvement in urinary problems after the operation for sexually active and healthy women, they resulted in sexual dysfunction and increase in depression. The age, educational status, working condition and family structure is also important.
