  • Life Course Approach: A Review

    • Authors: Gouri Priyanka Gollapalli, Naveen Kumar Baratam, Hyandavi Balla
      Pages: 63 - 65
      Abstract: In recent years public health research has increasingly focused upon exploring the social determinants of health. Many health education interventions have been influenced by health behavior research based upon psychological theories and models. These theories focus at an individual level and seek to explore cognitive and affective processes determining behavior and lifestyle. Current psychological theories have only a limited value in the development of public health action on altering the underlying social determinants of health. New theoretical approaches have however, emerged which explore the relationship between the social environment and health. This paper aims to review and highlight the potential value to oral health promotion by public health theoretical approaches called Life Course Approach which analyses the complex ways in which biological risk interacts with economic, social and psychological factors in the development of chronic disease throughout the whole life course.

  • Imbalances of both systolic and diastolic hypertension is implicated by a
           series of causative agents, a cross-sectional health survey

    • Authors: Rupom Mitra, A.T.M. Towfique Hasan Towhid, Md. Habibur Rahman, Md. Al Amin, Debendra Nath Roy
      Pages: 66 - 71
      Abstract: Background and Objectives: Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. Blood pressure is summarized by two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting (systole) or relaxed between beats (diastole). Our survey based study is carried out to estimate the current consequences of HTN among the populations of southern cities in Bangladesh.Methods: We have conducted our research in context on population’s age, gender, family history, addictive probability with type of drug habit, age of onset of respondents. We have compared systolic value with diastolic regarding these parameters by the help of self-designed standard questionnaire relevant with hypertension by manual data collection over six month’s period. Total 350 subject respondents were investigated by majorly visiting at their home, work places and hospitals. Descriptive statistics were applied to the collected data and analyzed using Microsoft Excel software.Results: 52.8% was male respondents and 47.8% was female of which 27.3% was the age range 56-65 years and another top most 23.4% was 46-55 years old. 90-100 mm/Hg diastolic value was noticed for 84.9% participants whereas 101-110mm/Hg was for remaining 9.3%. On the other hand, 140-150 and 151-160mm/Hg systolic pressure measured for 36.1% and 26.8% patients. Although 43.4% respondents answered yes in question for conveying hypertension from their family history but 56.6% was not at all. Narcotics substances immensely do impact in high blood pressure pathogenesis as it has showed almost 54.63% users among them betel & tobacco are experienced at least 71% following for smoking 29%. However, 68% betel & tobacco consumers had diastolic pressure 90-100 mm/Hg and 140-150 mm/Hg systolic value was measured for 37% betel and tobacco addicts followed by 26% chain smokers persist systolic pressure 151-160 mm/Hg range. Interestingly the maximum numbers of 32.2% peoples was first affected by hypertension in their age 36-45 years and 24.9% was the age range of 46-55 in second position.Conclusion: Hypertension is a major public health problem and it is diagnosed on the basis of a persistent high blood pressure. Unfortunately, the tendency to start hypertension in young age is increasing day by day. Everybody should be very conscious about this severe health issue to give up all kind of habit forming narcotic agents.

  • Study of Electrolyte status in patients with Thyroid dysfunction attending
           a tertiary care hospital of North Bengal.

    • Authors: Indrajit Nath, Swati Bhattacharyya, Mita Saha (Das)
      Pages: 72 - 75
      Abstract: Context: Thyroid disorders have widespread systemic manifestations including their effects on body mineral homeostasis in many different ways. Thyroid hormones control urinary excretion of minerals like Magnesium, zinc, sodium, potassium etc and minerals like Zn helps in peripheral conversion of inactive T4 to its active T3 form. Electrolyte abnormality is a common finding in the patients with thyroid dysfunction which can effect the disease morbidity.Aims & Objective: The present study was carried out to access the importance of Electrolyte status in the study subjects and to use the information for lowering the mortality and morbidity associated with the disease process.Materials &Methods: The study population was divided into normal control group consisting of 40 healthy individuals and a test group consisting of 80 patients out of whom 40 were diagnosed to be having primary hypothyroidism and 40 to be having primary hyperthyroidism. Electrolyte status was assessed by serum calcium, serum phosphorus, serum magnesium, serum zinc, serum sodium and serum potassiumResults: There is a significant increase in levels of serum calcium and phosphorus in group-II (P<0.001) and significant decrease in their levels in group-I (P<0.001) compared to control. Serum Magnesium showed a significant decrease in test groups-II (P<0.001) and increase in test group-I (P<0.001) compared to controls. Serum sodium showed significant decrease in test group-I (P<0.001) and test group-II (P=0.007) but the study did not show any significant difference in level of serum zinc and potassium in test group-I and II when compared to controls.Conclusion: Thyroid dysfunction results in an array of electrolyte abnormalities which increases the morbidity and mortality of the disease process. By proper maintenance of the electrolytes within normal limit, we can employ preventive strategies for better management of the patients and thereby improve their survival.

  • A comparison of fentanyl and clonidine as adjuvants to intrathecal
           levobupivacaine for spinal anaesthesia and postoperative analgesia in
           patients undergoing for lower limb surgery

    • Authors: Archana Agarwa, Rajiv Lakhotia, Somnath Longwani, Sandeep Srivastava, Amit Kumar Srivastava, Jaishri Bogra
      Pages: 76 - 80
      Abstract: Objective: Analgesic adjuvants, clonidine and fentanyl have decreased the requirements the local anaesthesia and prolonged the effects of the analgesia. The purpose of this study was compare the intrathecal clonidine and fentanyl as adjuvant to levobupivacaine in terms of efficacy, safety and postoperative analgesia in patients undergoing lower abdominal surgeries.Methods: This prospective study is conducted is sixty lower limb surgery patients, divided into two group C: 2.5ml of 0.5% levobupivacaine with either 30μg of clonidine and group F: 2.5ml of 0.5% levobupivacaine with either 15μg of fentanyl intrathecally. The hemodynamic parameters, onset and duration of sensory and motor block, total analgesia time and side effects were statistically analyzed using unpaired t-tests and Chi-square test.Results: The onset of sensory and motor were statistically similar in both group F and group C. The duration of sensory and motor block were significantly higher (p <0.001) in group C as compared to group F. The highest level sensory block was comparable in both group (p=0.918). Time reach max level and rescue analgesia were higher in group C (146.33±10.44 and 513.33±22.18 respectively) as compared to group F (139.17±7.09 and 428.50±25.53 respectively).Conclusions: Intrathecal clonidine and fentanyl as adjuvant to levobupivacaine provide adequate anaesthesia for lower abdominal surgeries. Clonidine as an adjuvant provided prolonged postoperative analgesia as compared to fentanyl.

  • The role of modified biophysical profile in high risk pregnancies and
           fetal outcome

    • Authors: Monica Agrawal, Nitu Nigam, Sangeeta Goel, Naheed Zia Khan
      Pages: 81 - 85
      Abstract: Objectives: In a high risk population where chances of adverse outcome are relatively high and almost all the pregnancies are under strict monitoring, biophysical profiling further helps to identify adverse outcome and thus a basis for intervention. In this study, we aim to evaluate the role of modified biophysical profile in high risk pregnancies and fetal outcome.Methods: Total 125 high risk pregnancies and were monitored for modified biophysical profiling from GA 34 weeks onwards. AFI<8 and non-reactive NST were considered as abnormal BPP. Apgar <7 at 5 min, MSL, NNU admission and neonatal death were considered as adverse fetal outcomes. Chi-square test was used to compare the data.Results: Mean age was 24.32±4.37 (range 19-35) years. Mean age at enrolment was 35.23±1.78 weeks. A total of 41 (32.8%) patients had AFI<8.  Non-reactive NST was seen in 52 (41.6%) patients. Overall abnormal biophysical profile (NR-NST/AFI<8) was seen in 62 (49.6%) patients. Incidence of meconium stained liquor, Apgar<7 at 5m, NNU admission and NNU expiry was 15.2%, 20.8%, 26.4% and 4.0% respectively. NST and overall BPP showed a statistically significant association with all the outcomes however, AFI failed to show a significant association with NNU expiry. For all the outcomes NST had higher sensitivity as compared to AFI. Combined BPP showed a higher sensitivity than either of two components.Conclusion: Modified BPP was found to be useful in identification of adverse fetal outcomes, thus highlighting its role in planning interventions to avert extreme events.Keywords:

  • Experimental evaluation of beneficial potential of Rhizophora mucronata
           Lam. leaves in Cisplatin-induced nephrotoxic animal model

    • Authors: Anjan Adhikari, Moumita Ray, Tapas Kumar Sur, Ranendra Kumar Roy, Anup Kumar Das
      Pages: 88 - 92
      Abstract: Objective: Chronic kidney disease typically evolves over many years, with a long latent period when the disease is clinically silent. Diagnosis, progression and treatment of renal impairment are based mainly on biomarkers that assess kidney function. There are a number of drugs used in the therapeutics which possesses nephrotoxic properties. But till date there is no nephroprotective drug available in therapeutics. In recent years the popularity of the herbal drugs is increased for their safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness. They have also gain importance in the drug development research. Present study has been focused to evaluate the preventive effect of the ethanolic extract of Sunderban mangrove Rhizophora mucronata Lam. leaves (RME) against cisplatin induced nephrotoxicity in experimental animal model. Methods: In-vivo nephrotoxic model was developed using a single dose of Cisplatin (5mg/kg i.p.) in rats. The extract (RME) was administered in different doses orally for consecutive 14 days and different biochemical parameters were evaluated at the end of the study. Results: The extract (RME) significantly reduced the urine output, kidney weight, urinary microprotein, microalbumin, elevated serum urea, creatinine levels than the nephrotoxic control rats. RME at the doses 200mg/kg and 400mg/kg body weight orally also had significant nephroprotective activity. Conclusion: Present study results indicated the protective effect of the ethanolic extract of the mangrove Rhizophora mucronata Lam. leaves in Cisplatin induced nephrotoxic model in rats. The amelioration of the nephrotoxicity might be mediated by the secondary metabolites of the plant extract, possessing significant antioxidant property.

  • A case report on placenta previa percreta involving urinary bladder

    • Authors: Arun H. Nayak, Namrata Yeole, Meenal Sarmalkar, Madhuri Mehendale
      Pages: 93 - 95
      Abstract: Placenta previa percreta with urinary bladder invasion is a rare but a potentially lethal condition. It is one of the leading causes of intractable postpartum haemorrhage requiring obstetric hysterectomy. The incidence of placenta percreta has dramatically increased due to increase in caesarean section rate. It is associated with increased morbidity and mortality both in mother and fetus. Hence, we present a case report on placenta previa percreta involving bladder who underwent uterine artery embolisation   followed by obstetric hysterectomy.
