  • The Impact of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on Community
           Pharmacy

    • Authors: SUNIL JAWLA, Durg Vijay Rai
      Pages: 01 - 04
      Abstract: Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are transforming health services throughout the world. Health information and technologies (HITs) involve application of information processing using computer for storage, retrieval, sharing and use of information and knowledge for communication by a pharmacist. Similarly electronic prescription (EP) services have made the dispensing and reimbursement processes more efficient. Maintenance of patient record become easy by using ICTs. Barcode identification of medicines can be used to reduce medicine administration errors and to improve the medication history of patients. Telecare using digital communications technology provides healthcare consultations and other health care services to rural, old & handicap patients easily and improves their access to healthcare by reducing their hospital attendance. In developing countries like India, it is quite a challenging task to provide access to information and communication technologies. As the geographical diversity is also a challenging for implementation of ICTs at everywhere. Information and technologies are giving a way to access the data all over the globe. ICTs have brought transformation in education in all over the world. Information and technologies are removing barriers from learning education. ICT applications are becoming indispensable tools for traditional and vocational education. In the field of pharmaceutical sciences, ICTs can further enhance the quality of education. As lots of modifications and newer drugs are coming in the market, it is quite a challenging task to a pharmacist to update knowledge to serve the society in an efficient way. ICT can be utilized in health care to improve quality of patient centric services.

  • Individual or Group-based Approach to the Assessment of Preschool
           Children: A Comparison using the INTERGROWTH-21st Neurodevelopment
           Assessment (INTER-NDA)

    • Authors: Johanna Slim, Jose Villar; Prof, Gabriela Guerrero Varela, Francisca Hernandez Castillo, Angélica Buchán Durán, Maria De la Luz Lozada Guzmán, Leila Cheikh Ismail, Dr, Sandy Savini, Pilar Vazquez Arango, Alan Stein, Prof, Stephen Kennedy, Prof, Michelle Fernandes, Dr
      Pages: 11 - 33
      Abstract: Introduction: It is unclear if the assessment of early child development can be carried out using a group approach, as opposed to individually. Objective: To compare scores obtained from children aged 22 to 26 months assessed either in small groups or individually using the INTERGROWTH-21st Neurodevelopment Assessment  (INTER-NDA), which measures cognition, language, motor skills, behavior, attention and socio-emotional reactivity. Methods: A small group based strategy for administering and scoring the INTER-NDA was developed. Thirty-six preschool children attending four Centros de Cuidado y Atención Infantil of the Sistema Nacional para el Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF) of Mexico were assessed in small groups of three children by a teacher specifically trained in the INTER-NDA. A second teacher, unaware of the group results, assessed the children individually on a different day. The sex, age, weight, length and head circumference of the children at the time of assessment were recorded. Results: INTER-NDA domain scores for group and individual assessments were statistically significantly correlated (range r=0.35 to r=1.00) for all domains except receptive language (r=0.25, p=0.14). Bland-Altman analysis showed agreement between group and individual scores for the language, behavior, attention and socio-emotional reactivity domains, and consistency (but not agreement) between group and individual scores for the cognitive and motor domains. None of the differences between group and individual scores examined were statistically significant, even after adjusting for the children’s age, sex, nutritional status and location of the preschool.   Conclusion: INTER-NDA domain specific scores obtained following group and individual assessment of children aged 22 to 26 months are consistent. It is feasible for trained preschool teachers to administer INTER-NDA at both group and individual level.

  • GROWTH MONITORING FOR LOW BIRTH WEIGHT INFANTS IN OMDURMAN MATERNITY
           HOSPITAL, SUDAN

    • Authors: EKHLAS A. I. MOHAMMED; AGBA A. A. GADAH-ELDAM
      Pages: 34 - 43
      Abstract: This was a longitudinal study to investigate the growth monitoring of Low Birth Weight (LBW) infants, (weight, length and head circumference) from birth to 6 months of age. 84 LBW infants delivered at Omdurman Maternity were included in the study, normal birth weight or preterm infants were excluded. Data was collected by questionnaire included background of the families and Infant's health and feeding. Mothers were interviewed first in the wards 3-4 h after delivery, then during home visits after 2 w and monthly follow up monitoring were used up to 6 mo. Infant's birth weight was taken immediately after birth and classified as LBW (1500-<2500 g) or VLBW (1000-<1500 g), as well as length and head circumference. Weights taken after 2 w and during monthly follow up. Infant's length and head circumference were measured to the nearest 0.1. cm. The data was analysed using statistical package for social science program (SPSS) and Chi-square test. 96.4% of the infants had LBW and 3.6% VLBW, 78.4% had normal health at birth and the rest suffered from jaundice, chest infection and diarrhoea were transferred to New Born Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for 1-3 w. 32.1% of the infants reached standard weight at the 6th month and 33.3% never reached it at any age. Mean weight attained at every age from birth to 6 months was always below standard weight. Weight attained at 2 w was 1.3 times and at 6 months 3 times the birth weight. Boys and girls had the same mean weight at birth and both doubled their weight in the second month. Length at birth was 58.3% and at 6th month was 53.6% standard length, however, there were 2 growth spurts, in the 2nd week (70.2%) and 4th month (80.9%). There was a steady increase in head circumference (≥ standard) and then a drop in the 5th (51.2%) and 6th (54.8%) months. Growth monitoring using Z-scores showed that girls had normal weight-for-age growth from 1st to 6th months but boys suffered mild underweight for the same period. Both had normal length-for-age growth from 1st to 6th months and both had normal weight-for-length growth only in the 5th and 6th months. Determinants of infants reaching standard weight at 6 months were: order of infant (P<0.037), number of family members (P<0.039), type of area (P<0.027) and diarrhoea infection (P<0.042). There was a significant correlation (P<0.000) between weight at birth and at 2 w but not with any other weights. The study recommended special care for LBW infants by admitting to the new born intensive care unit (NICU) till they achieve the optimum weight for their age.

  • OBESITY INTERVENTION AT SCHOOL SETTINGS, SOCIAL MOBILIZATIONS, FAMILY
           ENGAGEMENT AND BEHAVIOURAL APPROACH

    • Authors: Waleed Al Faisal; Hamid Y. Hussein, Nusaiba AlBehandy
      Pages: 44 - 48
      Abstract: Background: Obesity and overweight are recognized as major global public health phenomena. Its long term consequences are many chronic conditions like hypertension, Diabetes mellitus, and many more. Childhood obesity is complex and multidimensional, which has been identified as a public health priority. Objectives: To assess the impact of a multi-approach population-based childhood obesity intervention over three years at school population in Dubai. Methodology: Follow up was conducted on about 260000 students in the age range of 5-18 years (grades 1 –12) over about 180 private schools in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in three consequence academic years 2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017.  BMI measurement as per WHO growth charts was used at the beginning of each academic year (September). Wide variety of interventions have been designed an applied like health promotion, school nutritional education activities, Food labelling, happy schools initiatives, 10/10 initiative physical activity platform, parents awareness, students health file initiative, City Makers (blue team initiative), community participation (private –public partnership, Governmental stockholders intersect oral collaborations school canteen policy and guideline. Results: The current study revealed that about 10.1% of the total students in private schools in Dubai in the academic year 2014-2015 were obese.    Obesity prevalence during the academic year 2015-2016 was 9.88%. The study reflected that prevalence of obesity among student population at private schools in Dubai during the academic year 2016-2017 was 8.9%. The study revealed that the trend of obesity prevalence among students population at private schools in Dubai is declining over that last three academic years (2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017) showing that about 1.2% total reduction during the three year period of applying effective intervention program.  Conclusion:  Multi approach public health intervention for childhood obesity is significant. Maintaining intervention need to be revised, re assessed, monitored and there is a need for strengthening sustainable long term approach through governmental and nongovernmental accountability.

  • Large Aorto-Pulmonary Window (APW) associated with severe pulmonary
           hypertension: A case report

    • Authors: Abdul Wasay Khan, Laraib Malik, Farheen Malik, Sultana Habib
      Pages: 05 - 10
      Abstract: Background: APW is a rare congenital cardiac abnormality, accounting for 0.2% to 0.6% of patients. Hence the reported surgical experience is minimal. It is a     communication b/w pulmonary artery (PA) and the ascending aorta (Ao), in the presence of two separate semi lunar valves. Heart failure and irreversible pulmonary hypertension are the fearsome outcomes of untreated APW. Therefore, surgical  closure is the first-line curative choice. We present a case of young boy who presented late in age (his second decade of life) with severe signs and symptoms. Case   Presentation: A 12-year-old male patient from Baluchistan (balochi) presented with complaints of high grade fever for one week, palpitations since 12 days, along with past history of shortness of breath. On examination patient was anemic, cyanosed with raised JVP. On precordial examination apex beat was localized at the 6th     intercostal space shifted to mid-axillary line. S1 was normal but S2 was loud with prominent pulmonary component. Grade IV/VI continuous murmur was heard in the left upper sterna border. Chest X-ray showed cardiomegaly with prominent pulmonary artery (PA) and bilateral lung congestion. Echocardiography showed enlarged and hypertrophied right ventricle associated with dilated PA and a large APW was seen with severe pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) of 102 mmHg. Diagnosis of APW was confirmed on cardiac catheterization. Furthermore, cardiac CT was performed which showed type I APW with severe PH and large patent PDA (patent ductus  arteriosus). Patient then underwent repair of APW associated with reactive     pulmonary hypertension that had a complete repair utilizing a trans-aortic approach. PDA was also ligated during the same procedure. Patient symptoms remarkably  improved with a reduction PAP (40mmHg) after surgery and at 6 weeks follow-up. Follow-up echocardiography showed complete closure of the APW, and       pharmacological therapy was no longer required in the patient. Conclusion: APW should be suspected in any child, who comes with repeated chest infections and signs of congestive heart failure. It should be surgically corrected early, in order to prevent the development of obstructive pulmonary vascular disease. There is conflict of   interest.
