A Multicenter Study of Nursing Leadership in Andalusian Hospitals from a Gender-based Perspective

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.467
Synopsis: 
In today’s world, leadership is a key factor in the coordination and direction of the personnel in healthcare centres. Consequently, it is crucial to determine the predominant leadership behaviours typical of the different nursing management levels and to analyze how this leadership is reflected in the daily interactions among supervisors and their subordinates. The results will ultimately lead to a more efficient hospital system and a more effective use of human resources.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Leadership is the ability to guide subordinates in a direction or decision so that they can perform a task or achieve a goal that leaves them feeling empowered and accomplished. Leaders are capable of producing changes and at the same time, they inspire others to do the same. This research analyzed gender-based differences and dimensions of nursing leadership styles in eighteen hospitals in Andalusia, a region of southern Spain.

Surgical Excision and Autograft after Allergic Reaction to Tattoo Ink: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.304
Pages: 
572-74

ABSTRACT

A 29-year old female patient suffered a hypersensitivity reaction after having a tattoo placed on the supra-malleolar area of her right leg. Among other substances, the tattoo ink used contained red dye. Since the allergic reaction and its subsequent complications were recalcitrant to conventional medical treatment, it was finally necessary to surgically remove the tattoo and cover the area with an autograft.

Risk of Postpartum Depression in the Early Postnatal Period

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.033
Synopsis: 
Postpartum depression is an important health problem because of its negative impact on the family. Our study evidences that the risk factors for postpartum depression were onset of labour, type of delivery, reasons for not having epidural anaesthesia, and parity. Knowing this kind of data can help us to better understand and improve the prognosis of our patients.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Postpartum depression is an important health problem because of its negative impact on the family. The objective of this study was to ascertain the risk of depression in new mothers who had recently given birth in public university hospitals in Granada and to identify the factors that most contributed to the onset of postpartum depression.

Excess Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus Deposition in Epigastric Artery of Dialysis Patients Undergoing Renal Transplantation

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.466
Synopsis: 
Vascular calcification is a real problem related to chronic kidney disease, usually estimated by imaging methods. Our study evidences the cuantitative increased of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in vascular wall in long-term dialysis patients undergoing transplantation. Knowing this kind of data can help us to better understand and improve the prognosis of our patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  Vascular calcification contributes to cardiovascular disease on dialysis patients. Arterial mineral content is modified, but is still not well defined. We aim to define which is the concentration of calcium, magnesium and phosphorusin epigastric artery of adult dialysis patients undergoing renal transplantation.

Study of Different Involutive Changes in Bone Mineral Density Measured in Ward’s Triangle and Trabecular Volume Measured in Iliac Crest in Relation to Age

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.046
Pages: 
108–12
Synopsis: 
Involutional changes occur in bone mineral density during the process of ageing. Body mass index has a great influence on bone mineral density.

ABSTRACT

Background: The ageing process causes changes in the bone structure, in bone mineral density, and musculoskeletal disorders.

Aims: The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare involutive changes in bone structure that occur in relation to age in men and women through the study of bone mineral density at the Ward’s triangle and trabecular volume.
