Influence of Comprehensive Nursing Intervention Combined with WeChat Platform Propaganda and Education of ERAS Concept on Postoperative Functional Recovery of Patients with Gallbladder Polyps

To analyze the effect of comprehensive nursing intervention based on ERAS’s concept in laparoscopic gallbladder polyp (GP) surgery on patients’ postoperative quality of life and nursing job satisfaction. Ninety patients with polyps were included in this article until October 2021. In this format, the 45 cases are divided into governing bodies and committees according to their processing time. As recommended by the ERAS committee, the committee provides daily and patient care, as well as training on the WeChat platform. The pain level (visual analogue scale (VAS) score), the quality of life (life quality index (GLQI) score), and the incidence of complications were compared between the two groups before and after the intervention. The VAS score of the control group at 2 h after operation was lower than that of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (). After the intervention, the GLQI scores of the two groups were higher than those before the intervention, and the GLQI scores of the control group were higher than those of the control group, with significant differences (all ). Studies have shown that comprehensive nursing intervention applied to patients with gallbladder polyps can reduce postoperative pain with less complications and can also improve nursing satisfaction, which is worthy of clinical promotion.

High-Intensity Injury Recognition Pattern of Sports Athletes Based on the Deep Neural Network

In order to solve the problem of low efficiency and accuracy of injury image recognition for sports athletes in high-intensity injury treatment, this paper proposes an injury recognition mode based on the deep neural network. In this paper, the image of sports injury is converted to gray level, and the contour of the injury part in the image is extracted according to the combination of adaptive thresholding and mathematical morphology. In this model, the seed points are selected, the active contour is used to approximate the initial contour, and the curve fitting method is used to fit the obtained discrete points to obtain the final damaged contour. The digital matrix is constructed by using the extracted number of pixels at the damaged position and relevant information. The images are arranged into feature vectors with a length of 64 according to the mode of column concatenation. The overall mean vector of the image is calculated. The calculation results, training samples, and image samples to be recognized are substituted into the Euclidean distance to obtain the preliminary recognition results of the damaged position of the image of sports injury. Then, the image segmentation is realized by clustering. The clustering segmentation results are used to color describe the pixel categories of the original image, calculate the relative damage proportion area in the sports injury image, and identify the damage parts of the high-intensity sports injury image. The experimental results show that the recognition rate of the neural network is 80%-100%, and the recognition time of this method is 0-0.6/s. The above method can improve the accuracy of the recognition of the damaged part of the sports injury image and shorten the recognition time and has certain feasibility in determining the sports injury part.

Adhesive Bond Integrity of Experimental Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles Incorporated Dentin Adhesive: An SEM, EDX, μTBS, and Rheometric Analysis

Objective. Our study is aimed at preparing an experimental adhesive (EA) and assessing the influence of adding 5-10 wt.% concentrations of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles on the adhesive’s mechanical properties. Methods. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy were employed to investigate the morphology and elemental distribution of the filler nanoparticles. To examine the adhesive properties, microtensile bond strength (μTBS) testing, an investigation of the rheological properties, degree of conversion (DC), and analysis of the interface between the adhesive and dentin were carried out. Results. The SEM micrographs of ZnO nanoparticles demonstrated spherical agglomerates. The EDX plotting confirmed the incidence of Zn and oxygen (O) in the ZnO nanoparticles. The highest μTBS was observed for nonthermocycled (NTC) 5 wt.% ZnO group ( MPa), followed by the NTC-10 wt.% ZnO group ( MPa). Most of the failures observed were adhesive in nature. A gradual reduction in the viscosity was observed at higher angular frequencies, and the addition of 5 and 10 wt.% ZnO to the composition of the EA lowered its viscosity. The 5 wt.% ZnO group demonstrated suitable dentin interaction by showing the formation of resin tags, while for the 10 wt.% ZnO group, compromised resin tag formation was detected. DC was significantly higher in the 0% ZnO (EA) group. Conclusion. The reinforcement of the EA with 5 and 10 wt.% concentrations of ZnO nanoparticles produced an improvement in the adhesive’s μTBS. However, a reduced viscosity was observed for both nanoparticle-reinforced adhesives, and a negotiated dentin interaction was seen for 10 wt.% ZnO adhesive group. Further research exploring the influence of more filler concentrations on diverse adhesive properties is recommended.

Effect of Rehabilitation Physical Training on Basketball Injury under Ultrasound Examination

In order to solve the problem of observing the effect of rehabilitation physical training on basketball player injury, a kind of observation study on the effect of rehabilitation physical training on basketball player injury based on memory ultrasound examination was proposed. This study makes a comprehensive analysis of physical fitness training factors such as physical fitness test plan, training arrangement, training method, training monitoring, and effect evaluation. Through the experiment, it is found that there are still gaps in physical training, diagnostic standards, training plans and requirements, load monitoring, standardization of operation, nutrition, and recovery in the training organization. There are only 23.81% of full-time physical coaches and 25.40% of professional team doctors at all levels of sports teams. There were only 23.81% of full-time physical fitness coaches and 25.40% of professional team doctors in all levels of sports teams. Basketball players in the basketball injury survey had 67 sports injuries throughout the year, with a rate of 3.35 injuries per person and 2.48 injuries per 1000 hours. The location of chronic injuries is usually the lower back, knee joint, and ankle. The main injuries are due to the physical component, with injuries occurring most frequently throughout the training season in July, August, and September. Experiments show that good and professional physical training can reduce the risk of injury to a greater extent than strengthening the specific skills of athletes.

Observation on the Effect of Rehabilitative Physical Training on Ice and Snow Sports Injury under Ultrasound Examination

In order to solve the problem of rehabilitative physical training on ice and snow sports injuries, the author proposed an observation method using ultrasonography to be proposed. This method selects patients with anterior talofibular ligament injury treated in a hospital, forty-nine patients who did not undergo conventional rehabilitation under the surveillance of sports medicine ultrasound were set as the control group, a total of 49 patients with anterior talofibular ligament injury who underwent rehabilitation treatment under the monitoring of sports medicine ultrasound were selected as the experimental group, and the clinical efficacy of the two groups of patients was retrospectively analyzed, in order to discuss the application value of sports medicine ultrasound in the rehabilitation of anterior talofibular ligament injury. The results showed that comparing the rehabilitation effect, ankle function score, and daily living ability of the two groups of patients, the experimental group was better than the control group. Comparing the thickness of ligament and effusion between the two groups, the experimental group was also better than the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (). Ultrasound medical examination can help doctors to effectively judge the degree of injury and recovery of patients, and doctors can adjust the treatment plan in time according to the examination results and formulate an effective rehabilitation plan, which can greatly shorten the recovery time of patients, improve the treatment effect, promote the functional recovery of the ankle joint, and reduce the occurrence of complications.
