Abstract

Background: Recently, increased frequency in cardiovascular events was observed in young population.It has not been clearly determined whether cardiac and ventricular repolarization parameters differ between the young who have normal body mass index (BMI) and the young who are in overweight BMI class.Subjects and Methods: Forty-Three overweight (BMI-28.6±1.2 kg/m2, mean age- 20.6±1.5 years) and 39 normal weight (BMI - 21.8±2.0 kg/m2, mean age - 20.4±1.4 years) healthy male students from Baghdad University/ Medical College participated voluntarily in this study.All subjects underwent a blood pressure measurement and an electrocardiography recording.Results:Significant statistical differences in systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, Q-T interval duration and corrected Q-T interval duration between subjects with normal weight and those with overweight was found, also a positive linear correlation between BMI and Q-T interval duration and corrected Q-T interval duration and systolic and diastolic blood pressure.Conclusion: Results of this study indicate thatthe problem of overweight in youngmen should not be ignored. In a younger agegroup, weight gain and a higher BMI may affect cardiac and ventricular repolarization parameters, even if there areno obesityrelated disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease.

الخلفية العلمية: في الاونة الاخيرة لوحظ ازدياد في حدوث الامراض القلبية الوعائية لدى السكان الشباب. ليس من الواضح ان كانت مؤشرات اعادة الاستقطاب البطيني و القلبي تختلف بين الشباب ذوي دالة كتلة الجسم الطبيعية او الشباب ذوي دالة كتلة الجسم العالية.الاشخاص و طرق العمل: ثلاثة و اربعون شابا من ذوي دالة كتلة الجسم العالية بالاضافة الى تسعة و ثلاثون شابا من ذوي دالة كتلة الجسم الطبيعية من طلبة كلية الطب /جامعة بغداد الاصحاء شاركوا بصورة طوعية في هذه الدراسة . كل الاشخاص خضعوا الى قياس ضغط الدم و اجري لهم فحص تخطيط كهربية القلب.النتائج: اظهرت نتائج الدراسة وجود فرق احصائي يعتد به في ضغط الدم الانقباضي و الانبساطي و فترة كيو تي و فترة كيو تي المصححة بين الاشخاص ذوي دالة كتلة الجسم العالية و الطبيعية. كذلك اظهرت وجود علاقة خطية موجبة بين دالة كتلة الجسم و فترة كيو تي و فترة كيو تي المصححة ,كذلك وجود علاقة خطية موجبة بين دالة كتلة الجسم و ضغط الدم الانقباضي و الانبساطي.الاستنتاج: نتائج الدراسة تؤشر ان مشكلة ازدياد الوزن لدى الشباب يجب ان لا تهمل. في فئة الشباب ازدياد الوزن مع ازدياد دالة كتلة الجسم قد يؤثر على مؤشرات مؤشرات اعادة الاستقطاب البطيني و القلبي على الرغم من عدم وجود مضاعفات البدانة كارتفاع ضغط الدم او داء السكري او مرض قصور الشرايين التاجية للقلب.

Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:There are many circulatory changes that occur during exercise including the stimulatory effects on the circulation by the mass sympathetic discharge, the increased arterial pressure and cardiac output.OBJECTIVE:To investigate the effect of aging process on the heart rate and blood pressure responses during exercise in normal Iraqi male subjects.METHODS:The subjects involved in the study were normal healthy people, their total number was 80 persons all of them were males. They were grouped into three age groups; 20 ≤ 29 years, 30 ≤ 39 years and 40 ≤ 50 years. Each subject performed the exercise on motor driven treadmill device. Testing was conducted at The Medical City Teaching Hospital-Treadmill and Echo unit. Blood pressure was measured indirectly by auscultation. The heart rate was determined by ECG.RESULT:There was a significant differences in heart rate after the exercise between the three age groups, a significant differences in systolic blood pressure after the exercise between group2 and group3 was also noted, a non significant decrease in diastolic blood pressure among the three age groups and there was a significant increase in mean blood pressure between group2 and group3.CONCLUSION:There was a negative linear correlation between heart rate after the exercise and increasing age, while a positive linear correlation between systolic blood pressure and increasing age was found and there was a positive linear correlation between age and the mean blood pressure after the exercise.

Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:The annoying feeling of mistakenly thinking that you can hear your mobile phone ringing. This audio illusion is familiar and unnerving sensation is so widespread and now it has an official name: ringxiety.OBJECTIVE:This study was conducted to determine whether "Ringxiety" is common among Iraqi peoples and its correlation with age, sex, education, mobile type, and mobile using time.METHODS:Two hundred adult persons of either sex with a mean age of 20 ± 3 years were asked to answer a questioner with 14 questions.RESULT:The results of this study revealed that 73% of the individual involved experienced the phenomenon of ringxiety from time to time, in addition to 4% who experienced frequent ringxiety.Significant correlations were found between this sign and using mobile for more than 30 minutes per day and also a significant correlation was found between mobile addicts and ringxiety (P value <0.05).42% of studied subjects experienced mobile vibration mistakenly feeling, which occurs always with ringxiety but not the reverse. This sign was only correlated with the high mobile using time.No association was found between ringxiety and age, education, type of ring tone, or short messages (SMS) using.CONCLUSION:This study has proved that ringxiety is common among mobile users and could be one of the side effects of radio waves or just a malfunction of the brain due to the life heavy duties. Ringxiety might cause discomfort or loss of concentration during car driving or using dangerous machine
