[The development of the family, family relations and family socialization play a decisive role in becoming an adult and in the development of later forms of behavior. Parental treatment is closely related to problem-solving skills, which is why they can influence adequate responses to unexpected situations in ambulance care. The aim of the study: to explore and analyze the parental attitudes and behaviors that emerged during the upbringing of outgoing ambulance workers and can be related to the demographic, socio-economic characteristics of the study sample, as well as work, workplace and health behaviors. The survey was conducted between the employees of the National Ambulance Service and the participants of the National Ambulance Professional Section of the HHCP. In addition to demographic, workplace, and health status questions, the authors surveyed a shortened, 23-question version of the Egna Minnen Beträffande Uppfostran (s-EMBU) questionnaire developed by Perris et al. SPSS version 25.0 was used for statistical analyses. Types of analyses included descriptive statistics, two-sample t-test, correlation calculation, analysis of variance. The authors found striking correlations between religion, especially school graduation and female gender, as well as restrictive and gay parental treatment. The maternal rejection and paternal overprotection have been shown to be prominent among people those working in the capital, with the correlation that the “diversity” provided by the big city is particularly conducive to breakaway behavior and good social relationships. The parental restriction, as one of the characteristic parental behaviors revealed in our research, and its positive relationship with religiosity and higher school graduation in the part of Emergency Medical officers who work in higher positions raises the possibility that the professional appearance of helping and life-saving activities is influenced by religiosity and the resulting development of moral and social sensitivity during upbringing. ]

About the perineal-muscles: usually the PT-group achieved the best results. The FH-group’s perineal-muscles in case of relaxation were significantly symmetrical (p=0.038) than the TS-group’s after training.

Our research is a retrospective, cross-sectional study. In the random sampling within the target group, the target group was diagnosed with PCOS (n=50) and the control group was mothers who had undergone uninterrupted pregnancy (n=50). The exclusion criterion is the coexistence of other endocrine disease that may affect the parameters under consideration, in addition to the control group the diagnosis of PCOS. With IBM SPSS for Windows 22.0, we applied two-sample T-test and Khi2 test (p<0.05). The BMI values ​​measured in the PCOS study group are higher than in the control group (p<0,05). Pregnant women with PCOS has a higher risk of developing high blood pressure, and high cholesterol (p<0,05). The difference between the two groups can not be considered significant for the development of proteinuria and oedema.
