Abstract:

Introduction: Several pieces of evidence focus light on the culprit characteristic of crystalline silica for the induction and development of silicosis. Therefore, the present study was suggested to assess the impact of silica exposure on immunoglobulin levels.
Material and Methods: One hundred fifty subjects (n=150) were selected from the stone quarries of Central India, classified as healthy control (n=75) and workers exposed to respirable silica dust (n=75).Workers having less than 10 years exposure were excluded.  
Result: The mean duration of exposure for the experimental group is 15.8 ± 4.80 yrs. 
The mean value of serum IgM in exposed and control groups are 75.8.1l ± 18.52 mg/dL and 109 ± 19.81 mg/dL respectively and significantly depressed in the exposed group as compared to the control group (p<0.0001). The mean differences in the concentration of IgA between two groups are statistically significant with P< 0.001. Experimental group is showing 248.14±58.20 mg/dL concentration in comparison with control 124.26 ±30.11 mg/dL. The mean IgG value of exposed and control group is 1737.18 ± 469.62 mg/dL & 1005.17±219.56mg/dL respectively. 
Conclusion: Concentration of immunoglobulin IgG and IgA is raised and IgM level is depleted in silica dust exposed workers.  However, further studies are necessary to understand the immunological mechanisms alteration involved in silicosis.

Abstract:

The occurrence of multiple primary (triple synchronous) malignant neoplasms are rare. The exact aetiology is unknown and the management is complex. We describe a previously healthy elderly male who presented with breathlessness and difficulty in passing urine. Imaging revealed three separate tumours in prostate, lung and incidentally in oropharynx. All three sites underwent individual histopathological examination. The patient was treated initially with a combination of chemotherapy and hormonal therapy and later with external beam radiotherapy for oropharyngeal lesion. The prognosis of such patients is poor. Our patient expired with a survival of 16 months.

Abstract:

Fruit plucking during harvesting period involves labor intensive and time consuming steps. Automatic fruit plucking drones has to be developed to avoid the scarcity of labor and to consume less time. In order to make drones automatic, fruits have to be detected and classified properly. Drone need to be stabilized during flight and remotely controlled by the user. Robotic arm with gripper needs to be interfaced with the drone to pluck and hold the fruit. Fruit detection is performed by training different fruit images to object detection algorithms like SSD-Lite. Recognized fruit information is given to user through Raspberry Pi and is displayed in receiver module. Then Raspberry Pi controls the robotic arm automatically to pluck the fruits. Project can be implemented to harvest various kinds of fruits in orchards like apple, banana, guava and citrus etc.


Abstract:

Developments in robotic systems have created opportunities for use in many different areas and developed solution systems. Especially in labor-intensive studies, with the use of robotic systems, more mass production results were obtained with less errors. Polishing is a work that requires a lot of operator experience in manual applications. It is applied in many fields such as aviation, industrial and health. Although there are advantageous aspects of current manual use due to visual adaptation, the use of robotic systems in polishing applications is increasing day by day, especially after the developments in sensor technology. In this study, a robotic system has been developed to be used in the finishing processes of glasses frames including polishing. By comparing the developed system with the results obtained with the current technology, the benefits to be obtained in the use of the developed system were determined. As a result of the study, it was determined that the developed system has the ability to perform glasses frame polishing processes with high efficiency.

Abstract:

People seek out parks because they provide contact with the natural environment and a social environment which offers opportunities for meeting with friends, watching others and being seen all of which help to establish a feeling of comfort and security. The design of a park can have a direct impact on people’s perceptions of safety and their willingness to use a space. The physical characteristics which park users associate with high-risk environments include: Poor lighting, Confusing layout, Physical and aural isolation, Poor visibility, No access to help, Areas of concealment, Poor maintenance, Vandalism, Presence of “undesirables. In this paper we are going to focus on lighting and the effect of that in the safety of dunya Baris Park near besiktas, Istanbul, turkey. The single most requested physical design modification to improve safety is usually an increase in lighting. Lighting is a key factor because it can clarify the layout of a park by emphasizing walkways, focal points, gathering places and building entrances. When planned as a coordinated system, lighting improves the night time legibility, use and enjoyment of a site. Different methodologies have made in this case, like Experimental Study Area, site observations, to understand qualitative variables and also, make questionnaires about user satisfaction in this park to reach both qualitative and quantitative variables, In order to know the effect of public lighting on the pedestrian's sense of safety in the city parks.

Abstract:

Ergonomics is defined as the process of adapting the human and the environment in physical and psychological terms to each other in the most comfortable way without forcing them physically and spiritually. There are characteristics, trends, capabilities, and limitations of various business and environmental conditions on people and machines.
With the development of the industry, companies grew and large factories of complex machinery systems were established. Over time, the working conditions of the people working here were ignored, people were forced to work in more difficult conditions between machine systems, even compared to machines were asked to work more. Nowadays, the error of this situation has been revealed, the importance of the human factor has been understood and it has been seen that business should be created according to its capacity and condition. Despite the development of machine systems, it has been understood that human beings are the most important factor in the working environment and ergonomics science has been developed in order to make the working environment suitable for human beings.
The design of the interior organization in line with the ergonomic and anthropometric data, which will ensure that human beings are affected at minimum value against organic and psychological stresses, is very important. The aim of this study is to investigate the history of ergonomics and to define its usage areas by definition. The aim of this course is to investigate the effect of indoor ergonomics on human psychology and efficiency. In this study, literature review and articles published on this subject and other scientific sources were used.


Abstract:

Hospital started implementing SIMRS since 2011. Implementation of SIMRS at the hospital still has many obstacles or problems. There are no tools for coding diagnosis, in some units there is still a manual system implementation, based on observation there is one officer complaining about SIMRS performance, facilities (IT staff) have not been met to fix the problem with the program. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hospital information system based on staff perceptions by using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) method at Hospital. This type of research is quantitative analytic with cross sectional approach. This study uses a questionnaire method with 80 respondents used as a sample. Sampling was done using quota sampling technique. Based on the results of a simple logistic regression test conducted from the four variables only 1 variable that affects the use interest. These variables are business expectations that have an influence on interest in the use of information systems, while expectations of performance, social factors and facilities that help do not have an influence on the interest in using SIMRS in Hospital. Suggestions proposed by researchers related to the above problems are the need for socialization by the hospital regarding the benefits of the use of SIMRS and the benefits provided by the existence of the SIMRS. As well as further evaluations to assess whether the SIMRS contained in the hospital is in accordance with the needs or not.
