【Abstract】 Background Mechanical ventilation (MV) is an important means to rescue patients with respiratory failure,but it can lead to atrophy and functional decline in diaphragm.Studies have found that diaphragmatic atrophy occurred at the early stage of MV,but the correlation between early diaphragmatic atrophy and  MV duration and prognosis is still unclear.Objective To investigate the relationship of the changes in diaphragmatic thickness at the end of expiration (DTee) during respiratory cycles scanned by bedside color Doppler ultrasound with MV duration and length of stay in the ICU in mechanically ventilated patients.Methods The enrolled 60 cases of MV were from the Intensive Care Unit,Shenzhen People's Hospital between January 2016 and September 2017.All of them received routine treatment.We collected their data about sex,age,primary disease,baseline APACHE Ⅱ score and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP),MV duration,length of stay in ICU,DTee at baseline,during 5-day MV and immediately before weaning from MV,and the difference between DTee after MV and MV before (ΔDTee) during 5-day MV and immediately before weaning from MV (detected by a kind of color Doppler diagnostic ultrasound produced by SonoScape). They were divided into diaphragm atrophy group (n=21) and normal diaphragm thickness group (n=39) based on the DTee detected on the 3rd of MV.Results The DTee decreased with the MV duration (F=108.95,P<0.001). In all patients,the mean baseline DTee was higher than that measured on the 3rd,4th,5th days of MV,and immediately before weaning from MV,as was the mean DTee measured on the 1st day of MV when compared with that measured on the 4th,5th days of MV,and immediately before weaning from MV,and the mean DTee measured on the 2nd day of MV when compared with that measured immediately before weaning from MV(P<0.05). ΔDTee tended to increase with MV duration(F=263.10,P<0.001). The mean ΔDTee between the DTee at baseline and on the 1st of MV was found to be lower than other 4 subsequently measured ΔDTee(P<0.05). The mean ΔDTee between the DTee on the 3th day of MV was lower than immediately before weaning from MV(P<0.05).Compared with normal diaphragm thickness group,diaphragm atrophy group demonstrated higher mean hs-CRP level,longer MV duration and length of stay in ICU (P<0.05). Moreover,the ΔDTee from the 1st day to the 3rd day of MV was positively associated with MV duration (r=0.266,P=0.04). Conclusion DTee gradually decreased with the MV duration in mechanically ventilated patients,which was particularly obvious in the first 3 days.The extent of early diaphragm atrophy was related with MV duration and length of stay in ICU.

【Abstract】 Background Persistent infection of high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) is necessary but not sufficient for the occurrence of cervical cancer.Multiple changes in genome,microenvironment and immune system,and inflammation contribute to carcinogenesis.Therefore,the biomarkers of HR-HPV infection detected simply and noninvasively that can accurately and quantitatively reflect the changes in biological behavior of cervical cancer,become a focus of clinical research.Objective To examine the changes in HR-HPV load and regulatory T Cells (Treg) in the same microenvironment of cervical lesions,and based on this,to discuss their interactions and expressions in the development of cervical lesions.Methods We enrolled 342 cervical lesions patients with persistent HR-HPV infection from First Affiliated Hospital of Henan Polytechnic University during January 2012 to July 2015,including 55 with chronic cervicitis,73 with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia(CIN)Ⅰ,71 with CINⅡ,72 with CINⅢ and 71 with squamous carcinoma of the cervix (SCC).QF-PCR was used to detect the HR-HPV load.According to the level of HR-HPV load (copy number of HPV DNA),we divided the participants into 4 groups:low load (HPV DNA 104-105 copies/ml,n=69),medium load (HPV DNA>105-106 copies/ml,n=90),high load (HPV DNA>106-107 copies/ml,n=106)and very high load (HPV DNA>107 copies/ml,n=77).Flow cytometry was used to determine the number of Treg from cervical samples collected using a cytology brush.Results There were significant differences in the number of Treg among different load groups (P<0.05).The number of Treg increased with the growth of HR-HPV load,namely,low load group had less number of Treg than other 3 groups(P<0.05),so did the medium load group when compared with other 2 high groups (P<0.05),and as did the high load group when compared with very high group (P<0.05).The number of Treg differed significantly in patients with different cervical lesions (P<0.05).Chronic cervicitis patients had less number of Treg than other patients,so did CINⅠpatients when compared with CINⅡ,CINⅢ and SCC patients,and so did CINⅡpatients when compared with CINⅢ and SCC patients,and as did the CINⅢ patients when compared with SCC patients(P<0.05).The number of HR-HPV load differed significantly in patients with different cervical lesions(P<0.05).Chronic cervicitis and CINⅠpatients had less HR-HPV load than other patients,so did CINⅡ and CIN Ⅲ patients when compared with SCC patients (P<0.05).Clustered boxplot diagram showed that chronic cervicitis and SCC patients were found with a total of 3 slightly abnormal values,but other patients without;the distribution of HR-HPV load was dispersed in SCC patients,but comparatively concentrated in other cervical lesion patients.The distribution of cervical lesions in different HR-HPV load groups was significantly different (P<0.05).Correlation analysis showed that HR-HPV load was positively correlated with the severity of cervical lesions and the number of Treg (r=0.631,0.683,P<0.05),and there was a positive correlation between the severity of cervical lesions and the number of Treg (r=0.863,P<0.05).Conclusion The level of HR-HPV load is not always positively correlated with the severity of cervical lesions.The roles of Treg in the development of different cervical lesions differ by their expressions in the local cervical microenvironment.There are different pathogenicities,which causes immune imbalance,a key link in the development of cervical cancer.

【Abstract】 Background Caries in deciduous teeth has different degrees of influence on children's physical and mental health.Healthy oral hygiene behavior in childhood also has a positive impact on future growth and development.In recent years,there is a lack of literature on analyzing the status quo of health of deciduous teeth among children in urban and rural areas of Jiangxi Province.Objective To investigate the prevalence of carious deciduous teeth and oral hygiene behaviors among 3-5-year-old children in urban and rural areas of Jiangxi Province,proving an evidence-based reference for the development of appropriate oral hygiene interventions by relevant departments.Methods In this cross-sectional study carried out between December 2015 and October 2016,by stratified clustering sampling,we enrolled 2 880 3-5-year-old children〔1 428(49.58%) urban children and 1 452(50.42%) rural children〕 from 3 kindergartens randomly sampled from 5 districts and 5 counties of Shangrao,Ganzhou,Yichun,Jiujiang and Nanchang (1 district and 1 county from each city) randomly selected from Jiangxi Province.All of them underwent a dental examination for screening the prevalence of dental caries and a personal interview survey about oral hygiene.Results The prevalence of caries was 49.13%(1 415/2 880) and the mean DMFT was (2.33±3.55) among all the children.Compared with rural children,urban children demonstrated a lower prevalence of caries〔42.37%(605
/1 428) vs 55.79%(810/1 452),χ2=51.866,P<0.05〕,a lower mean DMFT〔(1.79±3.03)vs (2.86±3.92)(Z=-8.156,P<0.001)〕,and lower prevalence of caries in central incisors,lateral incisors,canine teeth,first molars and second molars  (P<0.05) in the maxilla,mandible and both maxilla and mandible.Urban and rural children showed significant differences in prevalence of tooth brushing,age of starting tooth brushing,frequency of daily tooth brushing,prevalence of using toothpaste with fluoride,frequency of eating sugary foods,suffering from tooth pain or discomfort over the past 12 months (P<0.05),but not in the rate of seeking hospital care due to dental problems (P>0.05).Conclusion In Jiangxi Province,3-5-year-old children from the urban areas had lower caries prevalence and mean DMFT and better oral hygiene behaviors compared with those from rural areas.In order to improve the overall oral health status of children,a high priority should be given to oral health education and interventions for bad oral hygiene behaviors,and development of good oral hygiene behaviors for children in rural areas.

【Abstract】 Background With the change of population structure and the acceleration of modernization in China, the problem of empty nesters in community is becoming more and more serious. Previous survey studies show that empty nesters have low quality of life and serious psychological problems. How to improve the psychological problems of empty nesters in community and improve their quality of life is the focus of future research.Objective To evaluate the correlations of perceived social support,psychological resilience and self-esteem in empty nesters on the basis of a survey.Methods Empty nesters and non-empty nesters from Faculty Community of Qufu Normal University in Qufu City were recruited in December 2016.Demographic characteristics,levels of social support,psychological resilience and self-esteem were collected by a survey with the Demographic Questionnaire,Perceived Social Support  Scale(PSSS),Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC),and Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale (RSES).Structural equation model was established by AMOS 20.0.And mediation analysis was used to analyze the mediation effect of perceived social support.Results Of the 434 recruited individuals,400 (including 200 empty nesters and 200 non-empty nesters) responded to the study questionnaires,achieving a response rate of 92.2%.Empty nesters demonstrated lower mean scores of PSSS 〔(56.5±5.3) vs (63.8±6.1)〕 (t=12.65,P<0.001),CD-RISC 〔(86.5±8.4) vs (91.6±9.1)〕 (t=5.86,P<0.001),and RSES 〔(27.3±2.4) vs (32.4±3.2)〕 (t=11.37,P<0.001) compared with non-empty nesters.Pearson correlation analysis showed that PSSS was positively correlated with CD-RISC score (r=0.568,P<0.01),PSSS was positively correlated with RSES score (r=0.637,P<0.01),CD-RISC was positively correlated with RSES score (r=0.625,P<0.01).Mediation analysis revealed that the effect size of perceived social support between psychological resilience and self-esteem was 0.335,with a 95%CI (0.277,0.393) found by the Bootstrapping.Conclusion Empty nesters have poor levels of perceived social support,psychological resilience and self-esteem.Perceived social support exerts a strong mediating effect on the relationship between psychological resilience and self-esteem.Therefore,the self-esteem of this population can be enhanced by raising the perceived social support.

【Abstract】 Background Mindfulness-based stress reduction(MBSR)has become popular in China.Due to the widespread use of online video platforms,online MBSR courses has emerged.Although studies showed that online MBSR courses can reduce stress,anxiety or depression of cancer patients,mind state,the most common mental health indicator for non-clinical audience,is less focused.Objective To evaluate the effect of a Chinese online MBSR course on the level of mindfulness and mood state of course participants recruited from a general population and to investigate the correlation between the changes of mindfulness level and mood state.Methods Chinese speaking self-pay participants were recruited by E-mail and Chinese social media to an Chinese online MBSR course from May to July 2017.The course is led by a senior MBSR tutor on ZOOM platform for 8 weeks,including network group courses and after school exercises.The Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) and Profile of Mood States-short Form (POMS-SF) both in Chinese version were administered at baseline and within 3 days after the completion of the course.The course attendance rate was recorded. Changes in level of mindfulness and mood state and their correlation were analyzed.Results A total of 24 questionnaires were distributed and 21 valid questionnaires were collected,with an effective recovery rate of 87.5%.The attendance rate of the course was 100.0% (21/21).There was an increase in the total score of FFMQ,the score of observing and non-judging after the course (P<0.05).There was no significant difference in the score of describing,awareness and non-reactivity facets of FFMQ (P>0.05).There were no significant differences in the score of total mood disturbance (TMD),tension,anger,fatigue,depression,confusion,vigor and self-esteem before and after the course (P>0.05).Total score difference of FFMQ was negatively correlated with differences of TMD,tension,anger,depression and confusion (P<0.01).We further looked at the 16 participants (76.2%) who had increased FFMQ score after the course,and the total score of FFMQ was (130.8±15.9) points before the course,which was lower than that of (151.1±13.4) after the course (tpaired=5.47,P<0.001).Among those with significant increase in FFMQ,we found that their TMD,tension,depression and confusion were significantly lower than that of baseline (P<0.05).However,anger,fatigue,vigor and self-esteem did not show statistically significant changes (P>0.05).Conclusion The Chinese online MBSR course can improve the mindfulness level of participants and stabilize their state of mind.

【Abstract】 Background Bronchial thermoplasty(BT) is a new non-drug treatment for refractory asthma on the basis of conventional therapy.It can reduce the contraction of airway smooth muscle,alleviate asthma symptoms and deterioration,and improve asthma control and quality of life.Objective To evaluate the efficacy and safety of BT in the treatment of refractory asthma (RA) by using a systematic review.Methods We searched PubMed,EMBase,,CNKI,Wanfang Data Knowledge Service Platform and VIP for randomized controlled trials (RCT) published as of February 2017,in which the efficacy and safety of BT in the treatment of RA were reported,and reviewed the studies listed as references of the relevant RCT published in printed journals.Data were extracted from eligible RCT and quality assessment was conducted with Revman 5.3.Results Five RCT were included.Meta-analysis showed that the FEV1% predicted was similar between RA patients with 1-year BT treatment and those with 5-year BT treatment 〔WMD=-0.75,95%CI (-3.36,1.85),P=0.57〕;compared with the controls,BT-treated patients showed significantly improved peak expiratory flow (PEF) 〔WMD=23.98,95%CI (15.12,32.83),P<0.000 01〕,much enhanced Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (AQLQ) score〔WMD=0.52,95%CI (0.25,0.78),P=0.000 2〕,obviously increased Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) score〔WMD=-0.52,95%CI (-0.84,
-0.20),P=0.002〕,notably longer asymptomatic duration〔WMD=23.63,95%CI (14.92,32.33),P<0.000 1〕and apparently lower rate of hospitalization due to respiratory adverse events during a 1-year treatment period〔OR=3.16,95%CI (1.12,8.93),P=0.03〕.However,both groups showed no significant differences in the frequency of receiving emergency drug therapy 〔WMD=-0.28,95%CI (-3.42,2.85),P=0.86〕.There was no significant difference in hospitalization rate of adverse respiratory reactions between 1 year and 5 years after BT treatment〔OR=1.51,95%CI (0.68,3.38),P=0.31〕.Conclusion BT can significantly improve the pulmonary function,asthma symptoms and quality of life of RA patients with good safety.

【Abstract】 Background The pathophysiological mechanism of cardiac syndrome X (CSX) is still not clear.Evaluation data of female ischemic syndrome shows that in coronary angiography,about 50% of women and 17% of men do not have stenosis or coronary artery stenosis <50%.Compared with normal population,CSX patients have a higher incidence of myocardial infarction and stroke.As CSX is easy to progress,coronary lesions tend to be aggravated,so it is particularly important to seek a new evaluation method.Objective To evaluate the left ventricular systolic function (LVSF) in patients with cardiac syndrome X using three-dimensional speckle tracking imaging (3D-STI).Methods The enrolled 60 participants were all from Huzhou Central Hospital from June 2016 to September 2017,including 40 cardiology inpatients with typical chest pain,positive results of treadmill exercise testing but without coronary artery anomalies (identified by coronary arteriongraphy) (study group),and other 20 healthy individuals underwent physical examination in the outpatient (control group).Echocardiography was performed for examining the left ventricular diastolic and systolic function parameters.Using 3D-STI,the peak values of longitudinal strain (LS),radial strain (RS),circumferential strain (CS),and area strain (AS),and the peak of twist angle (Ptw) and torsion of the left ventricle were measured.Results LVEDD,LVESD,E/A,E/E',S',LVEF were similar in both groups (P>0.05).RS and CS were similar in both groups (P>0.05),but LS and AS reduced,and Ptw and torsion of the left ventricle increased significantly in the study group (P<0.05).Univariate Logistic regression analysis showed that LS 〔OR=0.520,95%CI(0.310,0.875)〕 and AS 〔OR=0.463,95%CI(0.280,0.764)〕 were the influencing factors of CSX (P<0.05);for diagnosing CSX,the AUC of LS was 0.839 and that of AS was 0.853.Conclusion Using 3D-STI can correctly evaluate the systolic function of different segments of the left ventricle in the normal population or in the CSX population.Moreover,as 3D-STI can detect early abnormal changes in myocardium such as ischaemic myocardium more timely and sensitively than echocardiography,it is recommended for clinical application.
