The data of confidence for doing a procedure is limited. This information is<br>important to adjust a medical student program and also to evaluate the quality of the present<br>program. The objective of this study is to evaluate the confidence level in basic orthopedic<br>procedures of medical students, Burapha University with a questionnaire. Results of the study<br>demonstrated that the confidence levels in orthopedic specialty procedures were low, which<br>were similar to previous studies. The significant factors that affected confidence level were the<br>procedure difficulty and the number of case exposure. Sex and Grade Point Average Cumulative<br>(GPAX) were not ployrole. The number of exposed cases in most procedures were not sufficient.</p> 2018-04-27T00:00:00+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## CT Colonography at Burapha University Hospital: An Experience of Patient Satisfaction 2018-04-27T14:46:33+07:00 ศรสุภา ลิ้มเจริญ วีรวัลย์ แสนสวัสดิ์ <p><strong>Objective</strong> CT colonography (CTC) for screening of colorectal cancer in Thailand is quite a<br>new method and not popular. Thus we investigated patient satisfaction concerning patients’<br>understanding for bowel preparation, discomfort during examination, and acceptance.<br><strong>Design</strong> We reviewed questionnaires from all patients who underwent CTC at Burapha University<br>hospital from 1st July 2013 to 30th June 2016.<br><strong>Results</strong> There were 128 patients, mean age 58.8 years. Eighty patients (62.5%) were female.<br>All of patients received instructions clearly to very clearly. Of the 128 patients, 91.4% felt mild<br>to moderate discomfort during the examinations and 68.0% accepted the next examinations.<br>There were 1.3% non-assessable colonic segments in this study.<br><strong>Conclusions</strong> Most patients satisfied this method because they received clear instructions of the<br>patient preparation for CTC. This resulted in a good patient co-operation and a well acceptance<br>for the next examination.</p> 2018-04-27T00:00:00+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Chest Radiographic Findings in Hospitalized Children with Influenza and Respiratory Syncytial Viral Lower Respiratory Tract Infections 2018-04-27T15:02:14+07:00 ลานทิพย์ สุทธิรัตน์ ศรสุภา ลิ้มเจริญ วราวุฒิ เกรียงบูรพา <p><strong>Background</strong> Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza virus account for the majority of<br>lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI) in children. Although there were several studies describing<br>chest radiographic findings in these cases, results were different.<br><strong>Objectives</strong> The aim of this study was to describe the chest radiographic patterns of the two<br>common viruses in children with LRTI. Moreover, incidence, demographic data, and clinical<br>characteristics were also reported.<br><strong>Material and Methods</strong> Chest radiographs of 30 children aged 1 month to 15 years who were<br>hospitalized in Burapha University Hospital from September 2010 to August 2015 with the<br>diagnoses of LRTI by either RSV or influenza virus were evaluated and described. The incidence,<br>demographic data, and clinical characteristics were also evaluated.<br><strong>Results</strong> The incidence of RSV and influenza LRTI in our study was 32/556 (5.8%) patients. Of the<br>30 patients, 19 patients (63.3%) were infected with RSV and 11 patients (36.7%) with influenza<br>virus. The most common pulmonary infiltration patterns of both RSV and influenza infections<br>were interstitial infiltration (57.9% in RSV, 72.7% in influenza) and multifocal distribution (66.4% in<br>RSV, 72.7% in influenza). Diffuse distribution was more frequently found in RSV (31.1% vs. 9.1%).<br><strong>Conclusion</strong> The most common chest radiological findings in children with RSV and influenza<br>infection of lower respiratory tract were interstitial pattern and multifocal distribution. The<br>complications, found only in RSV group, were pleural effusion and pneumothorax.</p> 2018-04-27T00:00:00+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Holistic Psychology 2018-04-27T15:06:05+07:00 สมจิต พฤกษะริตานนท์ <p>Holistic Psychology is a concept of Alfred Adler for which a person’s consciousness is<br>an integration of the mind-body-social and spirit.
