  • Perceived Stress and Religious Coping in Morbidly Obese People

    • Authors: Kátia Ariana Borges
      Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To assess religious/spiritual coping in morbidly obese people and to correlate its relation to Perceived Stress. METHOD: Cross-sectional, non-experimental, quantitative study, with collection carried out between September 2020 and July 2021. The analyzes were based on absolute and relative frequency, central tendency, Shapiro-Wilk normality test and Spearman correlation coefficient.RESULTS: We obtained 41 participants, 29.27% men and 70.73% women. Utilization scores were high for Religious and Spiritual Coping Scale (SRCOPE), Total SRCOPE (TSRCOPE) (M = 3.6, SD = 0.4), medium for Positive SRCOPE (PSRCOPE) (M = 3.1, SD = 0.7) and low use of Negative SRCOPE (NSRCOPE) (M = 1.9, SD = 0.6). The correlation between the 14 questions of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) and the SRCOPE showed a positive association between TSRCOPE, PSRCOPE (p = 0.031 and r = 0.337) and NSRCOPE (p = 0.002 and r = 0.477), indicating that morbidly obese people believe in positive or negative influence of spirituality and religiosity in their lives. The correlations between factors PSRCOPE 1, 2 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 with the PSS items showed significant associations in practically all questions, especially in PSRCOPE 1, suggesting that participants use their religiosity and spirituality in coping everyday life.CONCLUSION: Stress, whether chronic or acute, plays an important role in the maintenance of morbid obesity and the strategy of spiritual religious coping can be appropriate and beneficial to the population in question. Cross-sectional and longitudinal studies with a more robust sample are needed in order to obtain generalized data for the entire Brazilian population.

  • Adherence to Anticoagulation Ambulatory during the Beginning of
           Coronavirus Pandemic

    • Authors: Marco Aurélio Lumertz Saffi
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Treatment with Vitamin K Antagonists is already proven to be significant in reducing thromboembolic events in patients with indications for systemic anticoagulation. In the context of ambulatory adherence, the SARS-CoV2 coronavirus pandemic emerged as a challenge for managing patients undergoing anticoagulation. METHODS: To avoid crowding and follow the recommended measures of social distancing, the Anticoagulation Ambulatory of the Hospital Universitário de Santa Maria started to adopt a differentiated model of care, with a collection of hospital prothrombin time and immediate home return, followed by teleconsultation, with medication adjustment, as necessary. The present study aimed to assess adherence to the new care model, as well as the profile of patients seen. A retrospective cohort study was conducted, analyzing consultations between March and May 2020. RESULTS: The results demonstrate a low-educated population (76% had completed elementary school at most). The most common indications for the use of oral anticoagulation were atrial fibrillation (33.6%), followed by mechanical aortic valve prosthesis (31.3%) and mechanical mitral valve prosthesis (17.2%). Regarding adherence, especially to blood collection in the scheduled period, there was low adherence in the initial weeks of the pandemic declaration, with substantial improvement in adherence in the last two weeks of analysis. CONCLUSION: Determining the clinical characteristics and profile of patients helps to determine the local needs of this population and implement active search strategies to improve adherence rates, which may reduce unfavorable outcomes.

  • The Current Level of HIV/AIDS Knowledge and Sexual Behaviors of Students
           in Southern China: A Cross-Sectional Study

    • Authors: Huaying Ao
      Abstract: BACKGROUND: The spread of HIV/AIDS in China is predominantly driven by sexual transmission and it is a fact that HIV transmission among students is quite common, e.g., 480 000 adolescents were infected from 2000 to 2018. Our study aimed to investigate knowledge of HIV/AIDS and sexual behaviors of young students in Southern China. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted based on questionnaire. The information collected included socio-demographic characteristics, knowledge of HIV and risky sexual behaviors. RESULTS: 9027 students were invited and 8349 were eventually enrolled in the study. The following factors were found to be associated with lower level of HIV/AIDS knowledge: female (OR: 0.757, 95% CI 0.689–0.831), residence in rural areas (OR: 0.786, 95% CI: 0.713–0.866), studying in high school (OR = 0.598, CI =0.459–0.779) and secondary vocational school (OR =0.713, CI =0.545–0.933), major in pharmacy (OR = 0.453, CI = 0.331–0.621), medicine (OR = 0.592, CI = 0.402–0.872) and others (OR = 0.671, CI = 0.518–0.871), and little participation in programs for the prevention of AIDS (OR = 0.646, CI = 0.585–0.714). Kendall correlation test showed that students who had risky sexual behaviors all had lower level of HIV/AIDS Knowledge (P < 0.05).CONCLUSIONS: Students who have more knowledge of HIV/AIDS were generally less likely to have risky sexual behaviors. Female students and those who reside in rural areas had lower level of HIV/AIDS knowledge, indicating that we may need to pay more attention to deliver education for these cohorts. It is suggested to follow the strategies used by some developed countries to improve students’ knowledge for HIV/AIDS and prevent its transmission.

  • An Analysis of Obesity and Associated Health Implications in Colorado and
           Mississippi States in U.S.A.

    • Authors: Saman Janaranjana Herath Bandara
      Abstract: The study tries to investigate the obesity and obesity related health implications of Colorado and Mississippi States to see the significant factors affecting obesity in each state to propose effective and doable policy suggestions to the states, especially to Mississippi state. The study follows logit analysis using Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance Systems (BRFSS) survey data of 2018. The individual data reported for the states were used for the analysis. The statistical package of STATA was used for the analysis. The analytical results show that physical exercise (EXER), number of sleeping hours (SLEP), and education (EDUC) play a major role in combatting obesity. Also, the impact of smoking (SMOK), alcohol consumption (DRNK), and obesity -related diseases ((DISE). The large differences in value between Colorado and Mississippi indicate the significance of these variables and how they could be used in Mississippi. Thus, Mississippi needs to go for efficient and effective policy implications to facilitate more for physical exercises, and education. Both states report that obesity-related illnesses have a significant impact on obesity. Thus, health programs on these diseases would be required to reduce obesity.

  • Impact of a Holistic Health Intervention on the Well-Being of Elderly

    • Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Mental stress is a major risk factor of metabolic diseases and impairs quality of life in the elderly. The goal of this study was to investigate whether a mindfulness-based intervention can improve health parameters and reduce stress-related hormones in elderly Thais.METHODS: A total of 192 participants were recruited from urban (n = 96) and rural areas (n = 96) in central region of Thailand. Creative visual art relaxation and meditative movement exemplified by Dao De Xin Xi exercise were introduced as monthly workshops and individual participants were encouraged to practice regularly for three months. General health status, levels of blood pressure (BP), fasting blood sugar (FBS), cortisol and dehydroepiandrosteone (DHEA) were evaluated before and after completing the intervention.RESULTS: This mindfulness-based intervention was effective as assessed by several biological health parameters. However, the degree of effectiveness differed between participants in urban and rural groups. In urban group, BPs were significantly reduced in hypertension and pre-hypertension subgroups of participants, and levels of DHEA in low DHEA participants were significantly increased after the intervention. In contrast, FBS levels in diabetic and pre-diabetic participants in the rural group, but not in the urban group, were significantly decreased after the intervention. We found a trend toward improvement of cortisol levels in both groups. However, the levels of glycated hemoglobin in either group remained unchanged.CONCLUSION: This mindfulness-based intervention to elderly people improved health parameters related to metabolic diseases. Therefore, applying the intervention in primary healthcare may help promote the well-being in elderly.

  • Food Insecurity among College Students

    • Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence and determinants of food insecurity among college students at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) during the COVID 19 pandemic. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study that collected online survey data from a convenience sample of college students. Setting: UNLV, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. Participants: 310 UNLV students 18 years of age and older, who were enrolled during the 2020 Fall semester. RESULTS: A total of 29.4% (n=97) of the study participants were food insecure. Students with a household income greater than $50,000 were 81% less likely to be food insecure (P < 0.01) compared to students with a household income lower than $50,000. Students who reported their general health as good, fair, or poor were 2.19 times more likely to be food insecure (P = 0.02) compared to students who reported their general health as excellent or very good. For each increase in GPA of 1 point, the odds of being food insecure decreased by 58% (P = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: This study highlights the high prevalence of food insecurity among UNLV students and provides public health professionals and policymakers with the scientific basis to develop interventions and policies aimed at reducing the rates of food insecurity among college students.

  • Creative Self-Efficacy as a Predictor of the Use of Creative Cognition

    • Authors: Wu-jing He
      Abstract: The present study examined the hypothesized predictive role of creative self-efficacy in the use of creative cognition by taking a perspective rooted in social cognitive theory. A sample of 614 undergraduate students (51.6% female) in Hong Kong was surveyed using the Creative Self-efficacy Scale and the Use of Creative Cognition Scale. The results of multiple regression analyses indicated that creative self-efficacy significantly accounted for 11% of the variance in the tendency to deploy creative cognition. The results of Pearson correlation analysis suggested that the strength of the association between creative self-efficacy and the tendency to deploy creative cognition was of medium size (r = .45). These findings lend empirical support to social cognitive theory and the creative behavior as agentic action (CBAA) model. The findings also suggest the practical implication that creative intention can be facilitated through the promotion of a stronger sense of creative self-belief.
