RELATIONSHIP OF NASAL DIMENSIONS AND THUMBPRINT AMONG STUDENTS OF DELTA STATE UNIVERSITY, ABRAKA

Research Article of American Journal of Anatomy and Physiology RELATIONSHIP OF NASAL DIMENSIONS AND THUMBPRINT AMONG STUDENTS OF DELTA STATE UNIVERSITY, ABRAKA Agatovure Ohwojero Suresha aDelta State University Abraka. The estimation of individual variation using demographic features has long been considered as a useful marker within the domain of biological anthropology. The purpose of the study was to determine the relationship of nasal dimensions with thumbprint ridge counts among students of Delta State University, Abraka. The study investigated a total of three hundred and eighty – four (384) subjects. Data from this study was analyzed with the aid of statistical package for social sciences (SPSS, version 21.0). Student T-test was used in testing the significance difference between mean of males and females. The results shows that females have higher ulner ridge on right thumb, Males have higher arch, Whorl ridge in the right thumb and also Males have higher Ulner, arch, whorl ridge on the left thumb. The study therefore concludes that sexual dimorphism exists among studied parameters. Keywords: Nasal Dimensions, Thumbprint, Students ...

Introduction: CKD is also called Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and, when installed, compromises renal functions in a slow, progressive and irreversible manner. Therefore, in some cases, renal replacement therapy treatments are necessary, including hemodialysis (HD). The family, in turn, also experiences changes in their roles and dynamics of functioning that influence the act of taking care of themselves and others. Objective: To promote reflections on the life projects of family members/caregivers of Pediatric Nephrology Hemodialysis patients at a reference hospital in Integral Medicine in the Northeast. Methods: Experience report through a group meeting with host intervention, listening directed to life projects aimed at family members and or companions of hemodialysis patients. Results: It was perceived from the reports that the task of caring is complex and permeated ...

DAYS OF ACADEMICS OF A COURSE OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION, GOIÂNIA, GOIÁS, BRAZIL

Research Article of American Journal of Anatomy and Physiology DAYS OF ACADEMICS OF A COURSE OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION, GOIÂNIA, GOIÁS, BRAZIL Andressa Moura Costa¹²*; Luis Henrique Silva Siqueira²; Lorena Tassara Quirino Vieira¹; Neuma Chaveiro¹; Lídia Acyole de Souza Oliveira¹² Introduction: Sleep is a psychobiological phenomenon that represents the moment that the body restores the processes performed by the body during the wake, influencing the well-being and the physical and mental health of the individual. Objective: In this sense, the objective of the study was to analyze the factors associated with daytime sleepiness in university students. Methodology: This is a cross-sectional, analytical, quantitative analysis study conducted with students of the three shifts of the Physical Education course, UEG / Eseffego. Data were collected using a socio-demographic record and the Epworth Daytime Sleepiness Scale (EPWORTH, 1991). In this, adding the scoring of the scale has up to nine individual points without signs of sleepiness (SS), between 10 and 15 with signs of drowsiness (SDS) and from 16 points with excessive daytime sleepiness (SDE). Results: 305 students were evaluated, mean age 22.01 ± 4.64 years. In the evaluation of the socio-demographic profile, the majority of the sample consisted of men (52.1%), morning (56.4%), no work and / or paid internship (61.6%) and in the first two course (56.4%). When the drowsiness level was verified, 64.9% (198) presented BDS, 18.4% (52) SS and 16.5% (51) did not present BDS. SDE was higher among women (72.6% / p = 0.001), students in the last period (82.4% / p = 0.001) and morning shift (60.2% / p = 0.001). Considerations: This data is worrying since BDS can influence daily activities and, persisting, is a risk factor for the emergence of sleep disorders. In addition, this condition can interfere with the hormonal cycle and trigger more serious ...

Comparative Myoarchitectural Orientation of the Extrinsic Lingual Muscles of the Egyptian Cattle (Bos Taurus), Buffalo (Bubalus Bubalis) and Camel (Camelus Dromedarius)

Research Article of American Journal of Anatomy and Physiology Comparative Myoarchitectural Orientation of the Extrinsic Lingual Muscles of the Egyptian Cattle (Bos Taurus), Buffalo (Bubalus Bubalis) and Camel (Camelus Dromedarius) Mohamed A. Naziha aDepartment of anatomy, faculty of veterinary medicine, New Valley University, El-Kharge, New Valley, Egypt Comparative myoarchitectural anatomical studies were adopted on twelve tongues of apparently health of both adult sexes of cattle, buffalo and camel. The study was aimed to describe the architectural orientation of the extrinsic lingual muscles for each species. As well as statistical data between the tongue and extrinsic lingual muscles. The work declared the properties of potent tongue which allowed the cattle and buffalo to perform their behavioral prehension of food. The study described the extrinsic lingual muscles and spotted a light on the role of the geniohyoid muscle on the tongue. The work concluded that the tongue of cattle was the stronger than the buffalo while both able to depend up on their tongue for food prehension. On the other hand the tongue of camel adapted for introral function. Keywords: Comparative, orientation, lingual muscles, cattle, buffalo, camel ...
