The Relationship Between Mindfulness, Academic Stress, And Attention, Tida Blackburn 2020 Utah State University

The Relationship Between Mindfulness, Academic Stress, And Attention, Tida Blackburn

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Some degree of anxiety in learning situations is expected and normal. However, excessive anxiety and stress negatively affect cognitive performance, especially working memory, concentration, and sustained attention. Studies have shown that higher success in academics is related to a better ability to maintain focus on the information presented including auditory and visual attention. College students who are better able to manage stress are more successful than those who cannot. One method of coping with stress and anxiety is the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present in the moment, be aware of one’s mind, body ...


Clinical Application: A Cost-Benefit Analysis Of Sugammadex Versus Neostigmine For A North Mississippi Delta Hospital, Donald Carver, Andrew Bundt 2020 The University of Southern Mississippi

Clinical Application: A Cost-Benefit Analysis Of Sugammadex Versus Neostigmine For A North Mississippi Delta Hospital, Donald Carver, Andrew Bundt

Doctoral Projects

As the cost of health care continues to rise and insurance reimbursements have decreased, organizations have to find avenues to cut costs and increase profits. A goal of this project is to help prepare anesthesia providers with the best evidence-based knowledge about sugammadex and neostigmine and allow providers to make a sound, cost-efficient decision when choosing a reversal method. A needs assessment was conducted with the chief certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) at a north delta Mississippi facility. The needs assessment demonstrated that cost was the main concern and reason for choosing neostigmine over sugammadex. Further, providers at the chosen ...

Apneic Oxygenation: An Adjunctive Therapy For Laryngoscopy During Anesthesia Induction, Yaro Hoffman 2020 The University of Southern Mississippi

Apneic Oxygenation: An Adjunctive Therapy For Laryngoscopy During Anesthesia Induction, Yaro Hoffman

Doctoral Projects

Endotracheal intubation is an essential component within the skill set of anesthesia providers. Rapid arterial desaturation remains a primary risk factor during laryngoscopy and intubation. The risk for hypoxemia exists because during endotracheal intubation, patients are apneic or hypo-ventilating (Wong et al., 2017). Apneic oxygenation (AO) has been advocated to attenuate hypoxemia during endotracheal intubation (Pavlov et al., 2017).

The aim of this project was to assess for any knowledge deficits regarding AO among anesthesia providers and assess the willingness of these providers to include AO into their current practice. The project investigator conducted an education session involving the evidence-based ...


Using Collaborative Objective Simulation Clinical Evaluation With Undergraduate Nursing Students And Nurse Anesthesia Students Labor Epidural Placement In An Active Labor Patient, Chaka K. Jackson, Aisha Pierre 2020 University of Southern Mississippi

Using Collaborative Objective Simulation Clinical Evaluation With Undergraduate Nursing Students And Nurse Anesthesia Students Labor Epidural Placement In An Active Labor Patient, Chaka K. Jackson, Aisha Pierre

Doctoral Projects

Developing interdisciplinary teamwork and patient communication skills are essential for the student registered nurse anesthetist (SRNA) to provide quality patient care when administering epidural anesthesia. The synthesis of the evidence revealed limited available information on simulation use for SRNA epidural administration and collaboration. This doctoral project examined the effectiveness of learning through traditional simulation to enhance communication and collaboration between the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and the Nurse Anesthesia Program (NAP) students. The BSN and NAP students were provided with a simulation environment to care for a laboring patient while improving patient safety and quality outcomes. The project ...


Cultural Competence Objective Structured Clinical Examination For Student Nurse Anesthetists, Ashley Nicole Minor, Loryn Elise Jamison 2020 University of Southern Mississippi

Cultural Competence Objective Structured Clinical Examination For Student Nurse Anesthetists, Ashley Nicole Minor, Loryn Elise Jamison

Doctoral Projects

The landscape of ethnicity is growing increasingly diverse. In 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that by the time the 2020 Census is conducted, over half of the nation’s children will be of a minority group (U.S. Census Bureau, 2017). With this evolution in cultural variety comes a necessity to incorporate exposure and training of cultural competency into professional health programs. Student registered nurse anesthetists (SRNAs) are a key demographic to professional growth within the realms of cultural competence as related to the field of nurse anesthesia. Along with clinical skills and advanced knowledge, cultural competence should ...

Variation and clade shifts in dengue virus (DENV) genotypes are responsible for numerous dengue fever outbreaks throughout Latin America in the past decade. Molecular analyses of dengue serotypes have revealed extensive genetic diversification and the emergence of new genotypes in Brazil (DENV-4 genotype I) and elsewhere in tropical and subtropical America. The goal of the present study is to assess the extent to which the adventitious introduction of DENV genotypes and their increasing genetic diversity affects dengue epidemiology in Mexico. A nuanced sequence inspection and phylogenetic analysis of the C-prM nucleotide region of DENV was performed for specimens collecting in ...
