  • The effectiveness of smartphone applications as an effort to improve
           cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) : Literatur review

    • Authors: Aris Nur Rahmat, Ridlwan Kamaluddin
      Abstract: Background : Cardiac arrest is a life-threatening emergency. Cardiac arrest must immediately get fast and appropriate treatment through the provision of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Doing CPR requires mental and knowledge. Material knowledge is obtained from media that is easily accessible to anyone, such as applications that contain CPR on smartphones.
      Objectives : To analyze and assess the quality of articles about the effectiveness of smartphone applications as an effort to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
      Methods : Article search using the Pubmed and Science Direct electronic databases. The search for articles used was the last 10 years with the keywords “Telenursing OR Telehealth OR Smartphone”, AND “Cardiopulmonary OR Cardiac Arrest”.
      Results : Results 6 of 13 articles applied the research design with RCTs, the other articles applied retrospective, prospective observation studies, and A mixed-methods evaluation study. The results of the article review show that smartphone feature functions include reports of cardiac arrest cases and learning-based applications regarding CPR. 1 of 13 articles describes the function of the report feature via SMS base system notification. Other articles discuss CPR learning features with video conferencing audio telephone calls instruments, Resusci Anne Skillreporter manikin, Laerdal skillreporting system V.2.2.1 software, use of U-CPR, The VADSS software application, Laerdal resusci-anne simulator, A SimMan simulator (Laerdal, Stavanger, Norway) and cardiac arrest simulation test score, guidelines for basic life support suitability test and system usability scale (SUS), video instructions for Dispatcher-assisted CPR and CPR quality, and CPR manikins and resuscitation council (UK)-endorsed lifesaver VR.
      Conclusions : Smartphones have been well developed and used in providing CPR by countries that have developed information systems. In addition, the smartphone feature can improve the quality of CPR, provide layperson CPR, and speed up CPR access. However, further research is needed to ensure the quality of the smartphone and the communication systems that support it so that there is no delay in administering CPR

  • The practice of birth preparedness and complication readiness (BPCR) in
           Panti District, Jember Regency

    • Authors: Devi Arine Kusumawardani, Ni'mal Baroya, Elok Permatasari

      Abstract: Background: High maternal mortality rates remain challenging in developing countries such as Indonesia. These maternal deaths are preventable with appropriate management and care. Birth preparedness and complication readiness (BPCR) is a crucial strategy for making prompt decisions to seek care resulting in reduced maternal mortality. Jember regency is one of the districts that rank first until the end of 2021 with the highest death rate in East Java and nationally.  Objectives: This study aims to assess the proportion of BPCR practices and the aspect of BPCR in pregnant women.Methods: This descriptive research was conducted among pregnant women in the working area of Panti Primary Health Service, Jember Regency as Primary Health Services with the highest maternal mortality rate in Jember regency in 2020. This study was conductedfrom August to November 2021. A total of 110 pregnant women were recruited by simple random sampling. The respondents were interviewed using the BPCR index, adapted from the John Hopkins Program for International Education in Gynecology and Obstetrics to identify nine indicators of BPCR.Results: The proportion of good BPCR in pregnant women was 60,00%. The most mentioned aspect of BPCR was planning transportation (89,10%) and planning to give birth with a skilled provider (82,7%). The elements that pregnant women are least prepared for are aware of the danger signs during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum.Conclusions: The proportion of good BPCR among pregnant women was moderate. Community-based health education about preparation for birth and awareness of danger signs during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum is crucial to prevent maternal mortality.

  • Improving the quality of life for premature infants through the continuity
           of care approach: A literature review

    • Authors: Dyah Dwi Astuti, Dessie Wanda
      Pages: 208 - 224
      Abstract: Background: The agenda for strengthening the global health architecture is to improve quality of life for premature infants. Premature births increase the morbidity and mortality of newborns, necessitating innovation in primary health care. Objectives: This study was conducted to examine innovation programs with a continuity of care approach in primary health care for premature infants in an effort to strengthen the global health architecture. Methods: A literature review method was used to analyze articles obtained using databases such as Science Direct and Google Scholar. The researcher used the key words “continuity of care” and “premature infants”. The inclusion criteria were full-text journal articles published from January 2020-December 2022 in English-language journals. Results: This study obtained ten articles that correspond to the continuity of care approach for premature infants. The articles included four qualitative studies, three quantitative studies, one mixed-method study, one literature review, and one systematic review. There are three themes related to the continuity of care for premature infants, including (1) Primary healthcare with information continuity, relationships continuity, and management continuity; (2) Continuity of care in the antenatal, natal, and postnatal periods; (3) The continuity of care on premature infant approach improves the outcome of premature infant care, the ability of parents, and health service quality. Conclusions: A continuity of care approach can increase the achievement of adequacy, equity, efficiency, and effectiveness in primary health care for premature infants. Joint synergy between the community, health services, and health policymakers is essential in efforts to strengthen the quality of life for premature infants.

  • The effect of prenatal yoga and acupressure on lowering blood pressure in
           pregnant women

    • Authors: Siti Rahmadani Nasution, Nurul Lidya, Yunita Laila Astuti, Diana Hartaty Anggaraini
      Pages: 225 - 233
      Abstract: Background: Hypertension in pregnancy is one of the contributors to the maternal mortality rate (MMR) in Indonesia. The combination of yoga and acupressure was expected to help pregnant women in lowering blood pressure.Objectives: This study aimed to test the combination of prenatal yoga and acupressure against blood pressure in pregnant women who had hypertension.Methods: This study was a quasi-experiment using a pre-post-test design with control group. The population in this study was all pregnant women in the Depok Regional Health Center. The inclusion criteria for this study included: pregnant women aged > 20 weeks of pregnancy, suffering from hypertension, namely systolic TD ≥140 mmHg and diastolic ≥90 mmHg. As for pregnant women who had a history of preeclampsia, had a history of bleeding in this pregnancy, pregnant women with placenta previa totalis were excluded from this study. The sample was taken by purposive sampling with the number of respondents as many as 30 pregnant women in the intervention group and 30 pregnant women in the control group. Data analysis used SPSS version 20 with descriptive and Chi-square tests for respondent characteristics. Bivariate analysis was analyzed with the Wilcoxon test, while to find out the difference in blood pressure between the two groups, the Mann-Witney U test was used.Results: Statistical results obtained that there was a significant difference in the blood pressure of pregnant women before and after yoga and acupressure. In addition, there were significant differences in blood pressure reduction between the intervention group and the control group.Conclusions: Yoga and acupressure combination was proven to reduce blood pressure. It is hoped that midwives or other health workers could implement it by teaching pregnant women, especially who suffer hypertension
