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 ...
