One of the factors causing the increasing use of composite resins as a restorative material in dentistry is the simplification use of adhesives and the invention of self-adhesive flowable composite (SAFC). The mechanical characteristics of composite resins must be excellent, since it has an important role during mastication process. One of the mechanical strength tests used to evaluate this capability is diametral tensile strength test. In the oral environment, the filling material is exposed to and interacts with fluids such as healthy drinks derived from red dragon fruit juice which is impor
Thoracoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows visualization of the pleural space and intrathoracic structures. It aids in obtaining pleural biopsies under direct vision, therapeutic drainage of effusions and pleural lavage in a single procedure. Pleural effusions despite being a common entity in pulmonary medicine, nearly a quarter of exudative pleural effusions still go undiagnosed despite the initial biochemical and cytological examinations. Medical thoracoscopy is considered a technological boon in diagnosing such scenarios. We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic yield of medical
This paper aims to provide a framework for addressing the moderating effect of proactive behavioral treatments called Job Crafting Behaviors (JCBs) on the established correlation between Job Demands (JDs) (i.e., Physical JDs, Psychological JDs) and Job Recourses (i.e., Staffing Adequacy, Social Support, Job control) and work-related burnout. However, although research on the association between job demands, job recourses, and burnout is well established, there aren't many on the significance of proactive behaviors. Furthermore, only a limited number of research have looked at the link between
We implemented a team-based learning activity, using small-group of medical students. The goal was to determine the students' perceptions and peer feedback towards the activity. This cross-sectional study conducted from August 2021 to January 2022 for fifth-year medical students at the Medical College, University of Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. The topic of “Acute and Chronic Abdominal Pain” selected for TBL activity. The steps were pre-class preparation, in-class readiness tests, and group discussion activities—a structured questionnaire used to evaluate student perceptions and peer feedback. O
Sodium-glucose co-transporter inhibitors (SGLT-2i) are novel antidiabetic medications with cardiorenal benefits. To the best of my knowledge, no real-world prospective studies evaluating the benefits and adverse events of SGLT-2i exist in Saudi Arabia. This study aims to assess empagliflozin’s adverse effects, short-term effects on heart failure, and treatment satisfaction. This prospective study was conducted among patients with type 2 diabetes who were prescribed Empagliflozin tablets as a primary treatment, or in combination with other antihyperglycemic medications. The project was carrie
