      Abstract: Objective This study is aimed to determining the prevalence of antenatal care utilization and associated factors among women of Aneded woreda who give birth in the past 12 months before the survey. Methods Community based cross sectional combining both quantitative and qualitative study design with total sample size of 415 is used. The data is entered and analyzed using statistical package for social science version 20 and binary logistic regression model is used to see the association of different variables with the outcome variable. Odds ratio at 95% confidence interval was used to measure strength, and statistical significance of associations. Results The overall mothers utilization of antenatal care is 60.5 %( 55.4, 65.3). Multivariable analysis shows being rural resident, no pregnancy complication, get health education about ANC, give birth at health center and traveling less than or equal to 1 hour distance on foot from home to health center are significant factors for ANC service utilization.

In quantitative study, the data were collected using structure questionnaires. The study participants were women of reproductive age (15–49 years) who gave birth in the past 2 years before the study. The dependent variable is utilization of at least one postnatal care visit within 6 weeks of delivery. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were employed to determine the association between dependent and independent variables. Results: From the total respondents, 37.7% of the mother and 20.3% of newborn had gotten postnatal checkup within the first 6 weeks, respectively. From PNC users, 51.1% of the mother and 47.4% of the newborn had utilized PNC 1 time, respectively. Based on multivariate analysis maternal education, number of ANC follow-up, PNC information before delivery, monthly income, place of delivery, and attendant during delivery have statistically significance association with postnatal health-care service utilization. Conclusion: The use of postnatal care service utilization is still limited in the study area. Only 37.7% of the mother and 20.3% of newborn had gotten postnatal checkup. Establishing qualified health facility around the area, expanding transport accessibility, and providing vehicles like ambulances that used to take mothers in the health facility are used to improve postnatal care service utilization.

      Abstract: Objective: This study aimed to assess institutional delivery and its associated factors among childbearing women in North Mecha woreda, Amhara region, Ethiopia. Methods: A cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted among 422 childbearing women from October 2019 to June 2020. Multistage sampling was used to cluster and select study subjects in urban and rural areas. The study participants were selected using systematic sampling from a listing of women who had been born within the study area. Both bivariate and multivariable logistic regressions were employed. AOR with a 95% confidence interval (CI) and p < 0.05 was used to determine significant factors. Results: The prevalence of institutional delivery was 36.8%. Duration of labor within 12 h (AOR=5.950, CI: 2.852–12.415), within 12 and above hours (AOR=6.653, CI: 1.948–22.717), outcome of last baby (AOR=10.178, CI: 1.871–55.364), residence (AOR=6.275, CI: 1.717–22.936), husband’s occupation (AOR=0.109, CI: 0.014–0.840), husband education (AOR=4.865, CI: 1.225–19.321) health facility near to residence (AOR=4.851, CI=2.782– 8.459), and time taking to reach health facilities (AOR=14.363, CI: 5.761–35.806) were significantly associated with institutional delivery.

      Pages: 1 - 4
      Abstract: Objectives: The objective of the study was to assess medical care and pain management of 237 lumbar disk herniation cases treated from 2011 to 2021 in the Specialties Hospital CREHVITAL, Ambato-Ecuador, and to provide a set of standards for appropriate management. Methods: Retrospective, cross-sectional analysis of archives, and registries of patient’s data provided by the Specialties Hospital CREHVITAL, Ambato-Ecuador. Participants: A total of 237 patients with lumbar disk herniation received medical services from 2011 to 2021; outcome measures were: Pain management, patient characteristics, surgical procedures, and medication after surgery. Results: The 40–50 age range had the highest prevalence of lumbar disk herniation and a higher percentage of the pathology in men (66%) than in women. Of the 237 patients, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed the highest lumbar disk herniation of the L4–L5 (101 men and 20 women), followed by herniation of the L5–S1 (59 men and 51 women). Two types of surgeries were performed: Classical surgery on 157 patients and microsurgery on 80 patients. The average period before receiving treatment was 1.5 years of maintaining back pain, and the early post-operative management consisted of patients receiving diclofenac, ketorolac, and ceftriaxone. Analgesics were used in 73.43% of patients. All cases required strict control, follow-up, and post-operative check-ups. Conclusion: This study provides essential and conclusive evidence and information on treated cases of lumbar disk herniation and its incidence in the medical field.

  • TYPE II DIABETES MELLITUS AND MANAGEMENT OF ISOLATED HYPERGLYCEMIA: A
           REVIEW

    • Authors: JUAN DIEGO CAYO TELLO, DIANA ELIZABETH SÁNCHEZ MORETTA, GABRIELA JENNIFER VARGAS HERNÁNDEZ, LUIS SANTIAGO HERNÁNDEZ MEDINA
      Pages: 1 - 4
      Abstract: Type II Diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is the most common of two types of Diabetes disease. T2DM is a metabolic disease characterized mainly by insulin resistance, reduction of insulin secretion, and hyperglycemia. T2DM is a major public health cause of concern not only by the increase in morbidity and mortality associated with patients with the disease, but also by the significant reduction in quality of life and productivity among the economically active population. Isolated hyperglycemia refers to patients with T2DM with normal fasting plasma glucose and no ketoacidosis. With the rise of T2DM and the presence of hidden symptoms, it is vital to determine a diagnostic sequence, blood-glucose control with sulfonylureas or insulin, and diet and exercise.

    • Authors: SELVA PREETHI SAMUNDI, SARAVANAKUMAR PARAMESWARAN, MANIMEKALAI PICHAIVEL, MURUGANANTHAN GOPAL
      Pages: 1 - 7
      Abstract: Mucormycosis is an angioinvasive infection caused by Zygomycosis in the order of Mucorales. It is mainly affected in immunocompromised individuals followed by risk factors such as diabetes mellitus, stem cell transplantation, organ transplantation, hematological malignancy, and more intake of steroids. Rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis, pulmonary mucormycosis, cutaneous mucormycosis, gastrointestinal mucormycosis, and disseminated mucormycosis are the most common types. Moreover, it can be diagnosed to overcome this infection using the following methods such as histopathology cultures, computed axial tomography, and resonance imaging. Moreover, it can be treated with amphotericin B, the first-line drug, and posaconazole and isavuconazole are also used. The in vitro studies reveal the antifungal drugs which show the best activity against mucormycosis. The main aim of this review shows the detailed study of mucormycosis and the outcome of this infection.

  • CONSUMPTION, KNOWLEDGE AND OPINIONS OF EXERCISERS AND ATHLETES ABOUT
           ENERGY DRINKS. A PUBLIC HEALTH PERSPECTIVE

    • Authors: NIKOLAOS NIKITIDIS
      First page: 7
      Abstract: The energy drinks are beverages that contain caffeine and are consumed by students, children, adolescents and young adults to enhance their athletic and cognitive performance. Significant adverse effects have been reported. They vary from mild symptoms to death. The present study attempts to assess the risk of using energy drinks by exercisers and athletes. In order to achieve this, we evaluate the consumption and knowledge level of the consumers. The lack of awareness can lead to dangerous practices. Views on appropriate public health protection measures are also being investigated. The grade of consumption (35.5%) is within the bounds of the literature. The main source of knowledge is the advertisement (69.2%), which does not guarantee objective information. Therefore, although exercisers and athletes believe that they have adequate knowledge on the subject (91.2%), in fact this is not the case (the knowledge score is 10.12/18). Thus, half of them consume concurrently energy drinks with alcohol (a perilous practice). The study emphasizes the need of taking measures for public health protection.
