Effective Factors on Auditory Brainstem Response Test in Newborns

Effective Factors on Auditory Brainstem Response Test in Newborns

Promotion of community health careis one of the major health and treatment policies. In this regard, prevention is considered the primary, most important and effective level of health care. Given the high prevalence of congenital (sensorineural) hearing loss (nearly 1/1000 to 3/1000 of live births) large numbers of neonates with congenital hearing loss will be born annually. Hearing loss will cause adverse effects on social, cognitive and speech development of these children. Therefore, early, even neonatal, diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss has been recommended in order to prevent such complications. This study has been conducted with the aim of hearing screening of the newborns and evaluating the effective factors on Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) test. In this descriptive study all included newborns were examined by TEOAE test during first week after birth. The result of the test was interpreted as “Pass” or “Refer”. In case of “Refer”, the test was repeated 3 weeks later. In neonates with the test result of “refer” in the second step, the ABR was done.The following risk factors were evaluated: 1) History of NICU admission for more than 48 hours 2) History of neonatal exchange transfusion 3) Family history of hearing deficiency 4) Birth weight 5) Administration of aminoglycosides in neonatal period. Of the total5850 evaluated newborns, 5148 (88%) gained criteria of “Pass” in first step of the test, while 702 cases (12%) were “Referred” to the second step and 468(8%) had impaired ABRtest. Related risk factors were evaluated in neonates with the abnormal OAE test or in those with the result of “Refer”. This showed that: 1) History of NICU admission for more than 48 hours was positive in 4.8% of normal newborns but in 55% of neonates with abnormal ABR test, and the difference was significant (P<0.001). 2) Family history of hearing deficiency was positive in 4.4% of normal newborns but 5.9% of neonates with abnormal ABR test, so

Seyyed komeyl tayebi and Abdollah ghanbari (1384), investigated the effect of joining WTO on Iran’s saffron export market (by focusing on Khorasan provinces); in order to investigate the export behavior of this product in export market, in both demand and supply points of view. In fact, if the effective factors on saffron export demand and supply, and the amount of these effects on export development is identified, then optimizing possibility of export market becomes available. Thus, by using econometric methods and needed time series date in a period, simultaneous equation of demand and supply of the products is calculated, by using dummy variables (WTO, unification and adjustment) as the indicators of Iran joining to WTO. The results showed a significant and positive effect of WTO variable (that indicates the organization establishment in 1995), on Iran’s saffron export market. Fatemeh Pasban, claimed that the results of assessing saffron export supply function, shows that saffron production and actual exchange rate has had a positive and saffron export price and the War has had a negative effect on saffron export. By the way, statistical investigations show that saffron export earnings has been unstable in the investigation period, because of export demand, not the export supply. By taking the results into consideration, it seems that we should help promotion of saffron in global markets by paying enough attention to processing and marketing, and setting stable and effective foreign currency and trade policies.

Investigating effective factors on attitude of farmers towards agri environment in Iran

Investigating effective factors on attitude of farmers towards agri environment in Iran

Agri-environmental indicators have to cover positive and negative effects of agriculture and should be sufficiently differentiated to be able to capture regional differences in environmental conditions . The potential application of agri- environmental indicators for assessing progress in the integration of environmental concerns into the Common Agricultural Policy is more limited. This limitation is due to the complex links between policy measures, changes in farming practices and environmental improvements, and other numerous other intervening factors . Measures used to monitor environmental changes within agricultural landscapes (e.g. soil quality, water quality, and biodiversity). Agri-environmental indicators may not be effective in cases where the environmental benefits provided by a policy measure are difficult and/or very expensive to measure.

Effective factors for increasing university publication and citation rate

Effective factors for increasing university publication and citation rate

Experimental sciences like life sciences involve doctoral students in experiments and knowledge production requiring the application of growingly complex instruments. Doctoral students are also considered as a vehicle for knowledge dissemination. With regard to publication, they circulate knowledge in academic organizations during and after their PhD program by contributing to scientific production and spreading knowledge to other organizations. Research conducted by doctoral students is an effective element in the overall knowledge production in universities. Therefore, training doctoral and post-doctoral students is actually a reproductive process in academic environments, which is linked with shifts in academic knowledge production (Enders, 2004). As such, institutional policy changes need to target improvement in funding system and increasing post-doctoral position.
