Ms. Jingam Karlo, Dr. M.J. Kumari, Ms. H.T. Lalthanthuami


Abstract


Problem: Intravenous cannulation is one of the key procedures that is performed for patients; however, it causes pain and discomfort. Studies have shown feasibility and efficiency of various anesthetic and analgesic agents to reduce pain but it is still not implemented in daily practice. The current study aims to assess the effect of topical application of an anesthetic agent on the pain perception of patients and degree of difficulty for healthcare professionals. Approach: 120 patients who require intravenous cannulation at an emergency department of a tertiary care center were enrolled usinga consecutive sampling technique for therandomized controlled trial. The intervention group received an application of 2% lignocaine gelfive minutes before the procedure, while,control group received a placebo (ECG gel). After the procedure, the pain score from patients anddegree of difficulty score from the health care professionals were assessed. Inferential analyses were done using Chi-square test, Fisher’s exact test, Mann-Whitney U test, and Kruskal Wallis test. Findings: There was a significant difference in pain perception between both groups. Participants in the intervention group mostly experienced mild pain or no pain (56.7% and 20% respectively), however, participants in control group mostly experienced moderate pain (56.7%) and severe pain (28.3%). However, there is no significant difference in the degree of difficulty experienced by healthcare professionals for both groups., Conclusion:The use of a topical anesthetic agent like 2% lignocaine gel before intravenous cannulation is recommended to reduce additional pain experienced by patients during the course of their treatment

Dr.Ritu Parna Mohanty (PT)1, Dr.Priyadarshini Mishra (PT)2


Abstract


A static, non-progressive lesion in the brain is the underlying cause of cerebral palsy, a pediatric neurological disorder affecting children. Children with this disease will continue to experience its effects throughout their lives.  A multi-centric team strategy is necessary. The majority of cases of causal events happen during the first two years of a child's life. Due to weak muscles, poor coordination, and overly tense muscles, a kid with CP struggles to carry out their daily activities. The most common cause of cerebral palsy in children is stress, which has negative effects on their environment, development, growth, and the people around them. The purpose of this research is to provide some preliminary evidence that yoga, particularly the relaxation techniques used in yoga, can help alleviate some of the tension that parents of children with cerebral palsy experience.

Abstract


This study presents a novel and green approach for the synthesis and stabilisation of silver nanoparticles (M_AgNPs) using a water-based stem extract of Salvadora persica. As evidenced by the development of a brownish-yellow colour, the biosynthesis of green synthesised M_AgNPs was further investigated using UV-Visible spectroscopy and ATR analysis (attenuated total reflectance). M_AgNPs were discovered to be spherical and 52 ±2 nm in size after SEM and DLS investigation. Zeta potential of -31mV supported M_AgNPs' stability. Additionally, they showed inhibitory zones against S. aureus and E. coli of 12.5 mm and 13.5 mm, respectively. Additionally, it was found that the MIC of M_AgNPs for S. aureus (MTCC 25923) and E. coli (MTCC 25922) were 6.0 g/ml and 6.7 g/ml, respectively. This indicates that the plant mediated M_AgNPs depict positive response for antibacterial activity. Therefore, these may be developed as novel medicines for the treatment of bacterial infections, particularly those that are multi-drug resistant.

1Yusuf Wasiu A.,E. O. 1Oyegoke, B. A.2Adewumi, T. 1Moronfolu, T. D. 1Adisa & A. D. 1Nuhu


Abstract


Small businesses in Nigeria confront a significant challenge in accessing necessary funds, hindering their potential for growth and development. Recognizing this hurdle, the financing of small businesses by Microfinance Banks has emerged as a pivotal component of the government's economic policies. These institutions focus on deposit mobilization within their areas of operation, extending microcredits or overdrafts to customers who lack access to conventional banking services.Small Business Growth is the dependent variable, while microfinance deposits, microfinance institution size, and microfinance loans constitute the independent variables. Utilizing monthly secondary time series data from the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Statistical Bulletin spanning from 2006 - 2021, the study employed the Autoregressive Distributed Lags (ARDL) Technique. The Unit Root test indicated the suitability of employing the ARDL estimation technique given the stationarity nature of the variables.Findings revealed a significant but negative impact of microfinance banks on the short-term expansion of small businesses, yet a positive and noticeable effect over the long term. Furthermore, the study indicated that the size of microfinance institutions holds minimal influence on the long-term success of small businesses. Interestingly, microfinance loans exhibited a negative and significant effect on short-term growth but demonstrated a positive and significant impact in the long term.Based on the outcomes, policymakers and microfinance institutions should focus on effective deposit mobilization and establish sustainable long-term financing models for small businesses. Prioritizing microfinance service quality over institution size is advised. Government policies should encourage high-quality financial services, emphasizing timely and affordable credit, savings, insurance, and other relevant products. Finally, fostering responsible lending practices is crucial, requiring robust screening, monitoring mechanisms, suitable interest rates, repayment terms, and financial education for borrowers to ensure effective utilization of loans without burdening small businesses.

*1Oladipo, Olajide. S., Ukeje Marie C., Yusuf Wasiu. A.


Abstract


Official statistics reveals that large swings have remained a consistent trend in official development Assistance in Nigeria but its influence on economic development is yet to be fully investigated. The study adopted an ex post facto research design, with the data covering all the sectors of the economy and spanning 2000-2020; a period of 21 years. A dynamic Panel ARDL estimation technique is preferred for the analysis given by Pesaran and Shin (2003). The Hausman test indicated preference to Pool Mean Group (PMG) estimator to determine possible homogenous effect. The findings revealed that development assistance improves the overall economic growth by 0.014 percent and 0.076 percent in the long-run and short-run respectively. However, in the health sector, there is an indication of 0.276 percent increase in economic growth as result of official development assistance while the educational sector experienced 0.71percent all things being equal. It is therefore recommended that the health and educational ministries should be transparent enough to boost confidence of donors.
