MRSA (also known as Mercer) is a bacterium responsible for several infections in humans that are difficult to treat. The study aimed at screening of microbial flora on mobile phones to find out the prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of methicillin resistant <em>Staphylococcus aureus.</em> <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> The present study was carried out in the Department of Medical Microbiology, NIMS Medical College and Hospital, NIMS University, Jaipur during the period of January 2014-June 2014. <strong>Results:</strong> The present study showed males prevalence of MRSA than Females. MRSA was seen among the age group 21-40 years. Maximum MRSA were obtained from pus/wound samples 12 (66.6%). The present study showed higher prevalence rate of MRSA from Doctors mobile phones. Higher prevalence rate of MRSA 58.8% in Hospital associated as compared to community associated sources 40%. HA(MRSA) showed highest resistance to penicillin 100%. The present study showed 35% MDR MRSA in HA. CA(MRSA) showed higher resistance to penicillin and ciprofloxacin 100%. HA and CAMRSA showed vancomycin and Linezolid 0% resistance.<strong> Conclusion:</strong> The study showed a higher prevalence of MRSA in HA as compared to CA sources and indicated high risk of infection in individual exposed to hospital environment. Thus, there is a need to screen individuals in hospitals for risk exposure and infection, to avoid outbreak and cross infection. There is a need of taking good Infection control measures and suggested that microbiological surveillance and monitoring of susceptibility patterns of MRSA may also help in arresting the spread of infections.</p> 2023-02-27T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Clinical Research and Applied Medicine Effectiveness and Perceptions of Small Group Teaching among Second Year MBBS Students. 2023-02-07T19:19:29-05:00 Dayananda R Prashantha B Manjunath SN Rajapur Parashuram Basavanna PL <p><strong>Background: </strong>Small Group Teaching (SGT) has grown in popularity in medical education as it offers a dynamic setting for learning and it is also learnercentered. <strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> Hundred final year MBBS students with informed consent were divided randomly into two groups. Group A was delivered a didactic lecture on the topic of Infant deaths, Group B was administered casebased learning and then subjected to small group interactive discussions. Pretest and post-test were conducted using MCQ’s. Perception of students based on Likert scale taken. The data analyzed in SPSS software. <strong>Results: </strong>Students who were given small group learning experience fared better than the didactic lecture group in the post-test. Small group tutorial teaching was agreed upon by the majority of the students to be more effective. <strong>Conclusion: </strong>Small group teaching was more effective as compared to didactic lectures and the perception of students was in favor of it.</p> 2023-02-27T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Clinical Research and Applied Medicine Coping up with Everyday Stress 2023-01-30T02:41:43-05:00 Mohammed Yunus Pankaj K Chaudhary <p style="text-align: justify;">Everyday stress is a common experience for many people and can manifest itself in various ways. It is an emotional and physical reaction to the daily demands and pressures of work, relationships, and personal responsibilities. Stress can be caused by a variety of events, including both positive and negative experiences. Stress can manifest physically and emotionally causing various symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, anxiety, and depression. It can also have a detrimental effect on an individual's general health and bring about several health problems such as hypertension, migraine, headache, cardiac diseases and many more. Stress can also impact a person's sleep, appetite, and concentration. Despite its adverse effects, stress is not always harmful. Stress, in small doses, can be a motivator, assisting people in meeting deadlines, achieving goals, and perform at their best. On the other hand, exposure to stress for an extended period may have a materially detrimental impact on the quality of life of a person and needs to be corrected. <strong>Read more...</strong></p> 2023-02-27T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Clinical Research and Applied Medicine
