About Department of Anesthetic Technology

The Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care, one of the most important departments in the college, was established in 2001/2002 AD, with the aim of graduating specialized cadres to work in the field of anesthesia and intensive care, who can work in operating rooms and intensive care units.The graduate of the department obtains a Bachelor’s degree in Anesthesiology and Intensive Care after completing 137 credits over a period of four years.

The student enrolls in the specialized stage, which lasts for three years, in which he studies (35) academic courses, including specialized courses, supporting courses, and (theoretical and practical)elective courses.The department employs a group of specialized faculty members who, in addition to teaching scientific courses, supervise practical and clinical training. Upon completing all the academic courses, the student will go through a practical field training period of six months, during which the student will be trained in educational hospitals to work in operating rooms, intensive care units, ambulance units, and dialysis units.

Palm Oil–Derived Natural Vitamin E: Its Role in Cellular Protection and NRF2/KEAP1 Signaling

Vitamin E has long been shown to be associated with an antioxidant activity. Tocotrienols serve as the predominant vitamin E and presented in high quantities in palm oil, rice bran and barley. There is a growing body of evidence regarding the manner in which tocotrienols mediate their antioxidant activities. Experimental studies have suggested that the antioxidant activity of tocotrienols is mediated through the induction of phase II antioxidant enzymes such as; glutathione peroxidase (GPx), NADPH: quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1), superoxide dismutase (SOD), etc. The induction of phase II enzymes protects against free radical damage and reduces the incidence of radical derived degenerative diseases.

Antimicrobial resistance in Libya: A systematic literature review of two decades

Background: In low- and middle-income countries, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) imposes a significant burden on patients and health-care systems. Due to a lack of data, the overall impact of AMR in Libya is not well known or documented. As a result, this study presents the results of a review of available data on AMR in Libya over the past 20 years (from 2002 to 2021) to aid understanding of the current AMR situation in this portion of the continent. Methods: Articles related to the topic were researched using databases and search engines such as PubMed, Google Scholar, and ResearchGate websites. These articles were selected based on predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. The total number of tested isolates for each of the reported Bacterial spp. was used to calculate antibiotic resistance to a specific bacterium. Results: Studies published in the past 20 years, representing reports of 18,160 AMR tests, showed that Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) was the most reported clinical diagnosis in Libya (61.3%). Out of 43 articles, Staphylococcus aureus was the most common Gram-positive bacteria documented in (31, 61.3%) studies, and was most common in 59.78% of skin infections. Whereas, Pseudomonas spps., were the most common Gram-negative bacteria presented in (23, 53.48%) studies, and were commonly isolated in respiratory infection (9.39%). Among Gram-negative bacteria, Pseudomonas spp. reported a high resistance percentage for penicillin beta-lactam antibiotic, i.e., piperacillin (10.4%) and to the first-generation cephalosporins antibiotics, i.e., cefazolin (7.7%). However, they are susceptible to metronidazole, v​a​

Assessment of Microbial and Chemical Contamination in Re-Usable 18 Liter Bottled water Marketed in Tripoli City and its Suburbs

The increasing population and limited drinking water, resources have enhanced the necessity of using bottled water. Transmission of the waterborne disease is a major concern of public health, and it is important to know chemical and microbial contamination of bottled water. This study was to investigate the microbial and chemical contamination in 18liters refilled water samples consumed inTripoli city and its suburbs. 40 samples of bottled water were collected randomly from ten different brands. All the samples meet standard of the WHO guidelines. The mean values of nitrate, nitrite, turbidity, Na+, K+ and pH parameters were 7.10 mg/l, 0.013 mg/l , 0.36 NTU, 8.60 mg/l, 0.32 mg/l and 7.64, respectively. Results showed that the mean and standard devation of total coliforms bacteria were detected in 14.42% bottles water. The high levels of microbial faecal indicators recorded in this study indicate the possibility that pathogenic microorganisms and parasites might be present in the 18liters refilled bottles currently offered for sale at the local market. Such a situation might pose a threat to public health. Since the bottles are of the re-usable type, thus, the reasons behind the high levels of contamination of most brands of bottled water included in this study could be due to inefficient cleaning and sanitizing of the bottles before refilling, utilization of water from unsafe sources and inefficient sanitizing of water.
