An experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of vitis vinifera soak on hemoglobin level among anemic students in selected colleges at Vellore. Quantitative evaluative approach was used for this study and the researcher adopted a true experimental research design. The sample was conducted among 60 anemic students in selected colleges at Vellore, in which 30 were in experimental group and 30 were in control group. The sample was selected by using Probability simple random sampling technique with lottery method. The researcher adopted Kristen M. Swanson theory as a conceptual framework. There are six different hypothesis were tested in this study. The Structured interview schedule was used to collect the demographic and clinical variable. Sahli’s hemoglobinometer was used to assess the hemoglobin level. Experimental group received intervention of vitis vinifera soak for 21 days in the morning and control group advised to follow daily routine and no intervention is given. In both groups, on 22nd day the researcher was conducted post test by using same tool. The data were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The study revealed that the mean post test score in control group was 9.29 where as in experimental group the mean post test score was 9.82, the mean difference was 0.53. The obtained ‘t’ value was 2.24 which was statistically significant (P<0.01). These findings revealed that the students in experimental group had increased hemoglobin level after administering vitis vinifera soak compared to the control group.

Background: In the hospital setting perioperative care is needed to revise or refine the illness and to improve the life status of the affected individual that can be determined by quality of recovery. The quality of recovery deals with individual needs and problems which has to be fulfilled during perioperative period. Aim: This study was aimed to assess the existing quality of postoperative recovery among postoperative patients and to find out the association of the level of quality of postoperative recovery with selected demographic variables. Subjects and Methods: A descriptive study was conducted among postoperative patients in selected hospital Pondicherry. Sample size was 120, selected through purposive sampling. The quantitative approach and descriptive design were adopted in this present study. Data collected by using modified rating scale questionnaire with related demographic profile of the subjects, ASA classification, present surgical data and quality of recovery (15-point questionnaire). Result: The results predicated among 120 samples by following the quality of postoperative tool which indicates 75 % (62.5%) patients had good recovery with fulfillment of needs and 73 (60.83%) with reduced signs and symptoms of patients after surgery. There was a significant association of gender, ASA classification and type of anesthesia with needs basic approach and problem-based approach questions 1 to 15 at the level of p<0.05 is significantly (chi-square test). Conclusion: The study results shows that quality of recovery is most of the subjects had good recovery among the post-operative and less subjects developed post-operative infections after their surgery with their demographic variables association. The post-operative care can be recommended in clinical practice which helps for improvement of the postoperative recovery among the post-operative patients.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorders that are characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. According to the International Diabetes Federation, there were over 72.946.400 cases of diabetes in India in 2017. Diabetic foot ulcers are the most challenging complication of unstable diabetes. It is a neuropathic complication of diabetes that occurs in about 15% of the patients with diabetes. They develop from two main causes like peripheral neuropathy and ischemia from peripheral vascular disease. The goal of treatment of a foot ulcer is to achieve healing as soon as possible. Low level light therapy or low level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation is a type of treatment which aids in wound healing through the application of biostimulative light energy to the body cells. Improving the glycemic control forms a major part of the treatment. Treatment of infection in diabetic ulcer nowadays is very difficult and expensive. So, we need to educate people in order to reduce the risk as well as occurrence of the foot ulcers. Hence, the use of low-level light therapy with the help of Red and Near-Infrared lights is recommended due to low expenditures and easy application for the patients.

Quality of life (QOL) of patient who is suffering with CKD is massively affected and deprived. Aim: The study was aimed to assess the standard of quality of life of CKD patient who were under treatment. Setting and methods: A Descriptive survey study was meted out among 150 CKD patients (n=150) selected by purposive sampling technique through structured interview who were admitted in selected Hospital, Cuttack, Odisha. Results: Maximum Percentage (84%).of patient with CKD were adult people. Highest percentage (78%) of CKD patient was male. Majority (62%) of patient were having primary education. Most of the patients (56.7%) were having Hyper- tension as an associated disease. Most (42%) of patients were daily labour. Maximum (89%) CKD patient were having average quality of life. Linear Regression towards the mean analysis shows only BMI and Gender having the numerous associations with quality of life among demographic variables. Conclusion: The study revealed that Maximum CKD patient were having average quality of life and quality of life(QOL) was only related to BMI and gender among all selected demographic variable.
