Background and Objectives: Considering the importance of thinking styles in individualschr('39') decision making, this study was conducted to investigate the correlation between thinking styles with clinical decision making among nurses working in educational hospitals affiliated to Tabriz University of Medical Sciences. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive–correlational study, 196 nurses were recruited using random sampling method. Data were collected using the Thinking Styles Inventory and a researcher structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed using the Pearson correlation test and multiple regression analysis. Results: The results showed that hierarchical thinking had the most significant relationship with the clinical decision making (p<0.001 r=0.427). Conservative and internal thinking styles showed significant negative relationships with the clinical decision making (p<0.05 r=-0.201, r=-0.149, respectively). According to the multiple logistic regression analysis, type 1 thinking styles predicted better clinical decision makings and type 2 thinking styles were associated with low scores of clinical decision making. Nevertheless the relation intensity obtained from the test was poor (R2=0.171 p<0.001). Conclusion: Considering significant relationship between thinking styles with clinical decision making, further studies are recommended.

Background: Postpartum is considered as one of the most vulnerable and stressful periods for women. Changes in physical appearance after pregnancy and childbirth could result in attitudinal changes of women towards their body and subsequently disorders in women’s sexual behavior.
Objectives: Regarding the effect of pregnancy and childbirth on sexual function and the body image of women, this study aims to assess the effect of body image satisfaction on sexual function of Iranian women referring to Health Care Center of Zanjan city after child birth.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 420 mothers who had referred to health care centers affiliated to Zanjan University of Medical Sciences between 2018-19. A checklist including questions about demographic and reproductive information, Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and the Multidimensional Body–Self Relations Questionnaire (MBSRQ) were filled up for all of the participants. The data were analyzed by SPSS 16 software through using the Pearson correlation coefficient.
Results: A positive relationship was observed between body image satisfaction and sexual function (SF) of women (r=0.23, p<0.001). The participating women’s BMI (r=0.27, p<0.001), marriage duration (r=0.11, p<0.05) and their age (r=0.28, p<0.001) were associated with their body image satisfaction. The levels of body image satisfaction showed significant difference between women with and without sexual dysfunction (p=0.008).
Conclusion: Women experience changes in SF and body image during the postpartum period. Changes in women’s SF can leave negative impact on women’s family relationship. Therefore, in that period, women need breastfeeding and nutritional support as well as psychosocial support with regards to their body image. As a strategy, health care providers are recommended to pay more attention to women’s mental and sexual issues while offering postpartum routine checks.

Background: Adolescent pregnancy is considered a high-risk pregnancy and is considered as a common phenomenon in Iran.
Objectives: This study aimed to compare neonatal and maternal outcomes in adolescent mothers with those of adult pregnancy.
Methods: This cross-sectional comparative study was conducted between September 2018 and March 2019 in the Referral Hospital of Ayatollah Mosavi of Zanjan, Iran. Data were collected using the convenience sampling method. Overall, 133 and 696 out of 1340 participated women were teenage and adult women within the age range of 20-30 years, respectively. The Chi-squared and logistic regression tests were used to compare the neonatal and obstetric consequences of the pregnancy of the two age groups. Finally, SPSS25 was used for data analysis, and a P<0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: Prevalence of adolescent pregnancy was found to be 9.92%. Adolescents had an increased risk of induced vaginal delivery (IVD) (OR=1.43, (OR: Odds ratio) 95% CI 1.07-4.23(CI: Confidence interval)), (P=0.01), dystocia (OR=3.23, 95% CI (2.27-17.22), (P=0.004)), and episiotomy ((OR=3.63), 95% CI (2.44-7.31), (P=0.001)). None of the neonatal consequences showed any significant difference between the two groups (P>0.05).
Conclusion: In our society, adolescent pregnancy is accompanied by dire consequences for the mother, but not for the neonate. Thus, it is recommended that health workers discourage adolescent pregnancy through appropriate services and education, and in cases where pregnancy has already occurred, support the woman through offering health services in order to prevent or minimize the risks or complications of pregnancy at such early age.

Background: The study of the prevalence, reasons, and various outcomes of pre-eclampsia in any region is of special importance in determining the prevention and medication strategies in that area.
Objectives: This study focuses on the prevalence and outcomes of pre-eclampsia and related factors in the referral Hospital of Ayatollah Mosavi in Zanjan Province.
Methods: This cross-sectional and analytical study was conducted on all the pregnant women who delivered their babies in Ayatollah Mosavi Hospital in Zanjan from September 2018 and March 2019. From among 1340 mothers in this study, 63 patients were considered as the sample based on the aim of this study, and 63 participants were selected by means of systematic randomized sampling and were placed in the control group. The data were collected using a researcher-made checklist. Analyses of the data were done using Mann–Whitney U test, Chi-square test, and Fisherchr('39')s exact test (p<0.05).
Results: This study proved that the majority of the mothers fell within the age range group of 20-35 (74.6%) characterized by multipar (66.6%). The results showed that the prevalence of pre-eclampsia in Zanjan Province was 5.5 percent. Based on the data, the pre-term and caesarean deliveries by mothers afflicted with pre-eclampsia were found to be 2.5 and 2.86 times, respectively (p<0.05). Furthermore, the experimental group babies needed the NICU care, which was 6.9 percent more than those of the control group (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Due to the high prevalence of pre-eclampsia in Zanjan Province and the unfavorable outcomes such as preterm delivery, caesarean, and baby’s need for admission in the NISC, it seems that the medication and prevention strategies in the province should be under more review and investigation.

Background: Hypothyroidism is common during pregnancy. This disorder is associated with adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes.
Objectives: The study of the prevalence and different consequences of hypothyroidism in pregnancy in each region is the special importance in determining prevention and management strategies. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of hypothyroidism and pregnancy outcomes in women referred to Ayatollah Mousavi Hospital in Zanjan.
Methods: This cross-sectional-analytical study was performed on all pregnant women who gave birth in Ayatollah Mousavi Hospital in Zanjan in 2018-2019. Data were collected through census and using Chi-square, Fisherchr('39')s exact and independent t-tests and with SPSS software version 22, pregnancy outcomes between the two groups were calculated.
Results: The prevalence of hypothyroidism in pregnant women in the present study was estimated at 8.59%. Hypothyroidism was found to double the chance of gestational diabetes (p<0.02) (CI=1.1-3.8). The rate of cesarean delivery was significantly higher in patients (p<0.001). The rate of fetal heart rate drop, placental abruption, and placental adhesion was higher in the affected group, but this difference was not significant (p>0.05). There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of preeclampsia, preterm delivery, first minute Apgar score, height, weight and head circumference of the newborn (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Considering the adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes of hypothyroidism, it seems that more clinical studies in this field are needed to manage and evaluate the outcomes in pregnant women with hypothyroidism
