  • Relationship of Knowledge and Perception of Self-Medication of Cough
           Medicine to Lung Function Disorders in Construction Workers in Indonesia

    • Authors: Rivan Virlando Suryadinata; Amelia Lorensia, Rahmat Rizki
      Abstract: Construction workers were at high risk for chronic lung disease and decreased lung function, which often causes coughing symptoms. Self-medicated cough medicines were not only at risk for the incidence of side effects but also associated with the economy. This study aimed to determine differences in knowledge and perceptions about pulmonary function disorders. This study was an observational study using a case-control design conducted from April to December 2018. The subject was actively working in Rungkut District, Surabaya. Data will be presented descriptively, with relationships and differences analyzed using the chi-square test. Respondents found in both groups were 158, with 79 respondents in each group. Most of the respondents had a very high level of knowledge and perception in the group with impaired lung function (p=0.000). In addition, there is a relationship between knowledge and perception of self-medication of cough medicine. In conclusion, knowledge is related to construction workers' perception of self-medication of cough medicine.

  • Comparison of the Effectiveness between Oral NSAIDs and Dextrose
           Prolotherapy in Knee Osteoarthritis

    • Authors: Sugiyanta Sugiyanta; Winie Septhia Dwicahyandari, Erfan Efendi, Desie Dwi Wisudanti
      Abstract: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the first treatment choice for pain relief in osteoarthritis (OA). However, known to have an 85% risk of side effects on the gastrointestinal and a 40% chance of cardiovascular complications. In addition, incertain classes of NSAIDs, the risk of chronic kidney disease increases due to long-term consumption. On the other hand, dextrose prolotherapy is a regenerative therapy. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of oral NSAIDs with dextrose prolotherapy in knee OA based on clinical features. This study used an observational method (cross-sectional). Of the 75 population, 23 patients with mild to moderate knee OA were divided into two groups; 15 samples of dextrose prolotherapy and eight samples of oral NSAIDs. Data in the study showed the mean WOMAC score in the dextrose prolotherapy group was 12.4±11.7, while the oral NSAID group was 34.75±17.6. A total of 14 samples experienced a decrease in scores after switching from oral NSAIDs to dextrose prolotherapy. Bivariate analyseswere performed using Mann-Whitney and Wilcoxon tests. Both statistical tests show a p=0.001 (p<0.05). Thus, this study concluded that dextrose prolotherapy was more effective than oral NSAIDs in knee OA.

  • Correlation of Interleukin-6 Level with Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio and
           Disease Severity in COVID-19 Patients

    • Authors: Hendrastutik Apriningsih; Nurhasan Agung Prabowo, Reviono Reviono, Brigitta Devi Anindita, Risalina Myrtha, Desy Puspa Putri, Berty Denny Hermawati
      Abstract: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) causes severe acute respiratory disease in humans and has spread rapidly worldwide since its first identification in December 2019. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) describes the balance between the severity of inflammation and the immune system to be used as an important systemic inflammatory marker. Rapid progression of clinical deterioration is characterized by severe respiratory symptoms related to high levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, like interleukin-6 (IL-6), indicating that the occurrence of cytokine storms leads to increased mortality. This study aims to assess the correlation between IL-6 and NLR in predicting the severity of COVID-19. This prospective cohort study was conducted at the COVID-19 ward of Universitas Sebelas Maret Hospital in August–September 2021. This study involved 66 COVID-19 patients >18 years old with asymptomatic to critical degree and Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) value ≤3. Examination of laboratory parameters and serum IL-6 was carried out when the patient entered the Emergency Room. Statistical test with Pearson’s correlation test, significant if p<0.05. There is no significant correlation between IL-6 and NLR with p=0.56 and r=0.08, and a strong correlation between IL-6 and disease severity with p=0.000 and r=0.454. The conclusion is that IL-6 does not correlate with NLR and strongly correlates with disease severity in COVID-19 patients.

  • Soil-Transmitted Helminth Eggs Contamination on Fresh Vegetables in Medan

    • Authors: Nurfadly Nurfadly; Iqrina Widia Zahara, Aisyah Khoiriyah Nasution
      Abstract: Indonesian people habitually consume fresh vegetables as companions to other foods. We can find soil-transmitted helminths (STH) eggs in fresh vegetables that are not washed clean. This study determines whether there was STH egg contamination in fresh vegetables in several stalls selling fried chicken in Medan. This study was a descriptive study with a cross-sectional design. Research samples were four types of fresh vegetables: lemon basil (Ocimum africanum), lettuce (Lactuca sativa), cucumber (Cucumis sativus), and cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata) collected from 88 fried chicken stalls in Medan in January 2019. All samples were examined by the sedimentation method to ensure STH egg contamination at the Parasitology Laboratory of the Faculty of Medicine Universitas Muhammadiyah Sumatera Utara. The types of fresh vegetables that were most contaminated by STH eggs were lemon basil leaves (Ocimum africanum), and the most abundant STH eggs found were Ascaris lumbricoideseggs. In conclusion, there is egg contamination in fresh vegetables in several stalls selling fried chicken in Medan.

  • The Use of Ovitrap Has No Effect on the Female Aedes Sp. Density in the
           Tamansari Sub-district of Bandung City

    • Authors: Siti Annisa Devi Trusda; Ratna Dewi Indi Astuti, Cice - Tresnasari
      Abstract: The incidence of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) in Indonesia, which become one of the death causes, is quite high. The government launched the Mosquito Nest Eradication (MNE) movement with an indicator of the larva-free rate as a way to reduce the incidence of DHF. Another effort in vector control is the use of ovitrap to break the life chain of Dengue vectors. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of using ovitrap on the female Aedes sp density in the Tamansari sub-district area of Bandung City.      This study was a quantitative experimental study conducted on 60 houses in two Rukun Tetangga in the KelurahanTaman Sari area. Both groups of community were assessed for ovitrap index and the number of eggs trapped on ovitrap filter paper before and after treatment. The treatment group consisting of 30 houses was given one ovitrap inside and one ovitrap outside the house for four weeks. Ovitrap is changed every five days. The second group is the control community. The data obtained were analyzed using the Wilcoxon and Chi square tests with a degree of confidence of 0.05.      In this study, the ovitrap index of this area was found between 0.67-0.80 which indicates that this area is at high risk of DHF transmission. Statistical tests showed that the use of ovitrap had no effect on female Aedes sp density as assessed by the ovitrap index.      The results showed that the use of ovitrap could not control the population of Aedes sp.

           in Bulukumba District

    • Authors: Asri Asri; Andi Suswani, Haerati Haerati, Safruddin Safruddin, Andi Risky Amalia
      Abstract: Stigma and discrimination against people with Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV & AIDS) are one of the biggest obstacles to the prevention and control of HIV and AIDS in Indonesia. This study aims to analyze the factors associated with stigma and discrimination and to find out the types of stigma and discrimination given by health workers to people with HIV & AIDS. This study uses a cross-sectional design method. Data were analyzed using Chi-Square and Linear by linear Association test. The number of samples was 322 health workers consisting of nurses, midwives, laboratory analysts, some lecturers, and public health workers. Based on the results of the study, it was found that most of the health workers were female (82.3%), the highest education was Diploma (60.6%), worked as a nurse (48.4%), the work period was less than 10 years (69.6% ), have good knowledge about HIV & AIDS (55.9%) and do not practice stigma and discrimination (59.3%). It was found that the type of profession (p=0.041) and knowledge (p=0.019) were factors related to stigma and discrimination. Based on the type of stigma given, it was found that the greatest stigma experienced by HIV & AIDS sufferers is feeling disgusted and uncomfortable around the sufferer, and the assumption that HIV and AIDS sufferers are only the result of free sex, while the form of discrimination with the largest percentage is the behavior of health workers who will use multi-layered tokens when performing/providing services for people with HIV & AIDS.

    • Authors: Nurul Romadhona; Susan Fitriyana, Ayu Prasetia, Raden Ganang Ibnusantosa, Eka Nurhayati, Titik Respati
      Abstract: The many demands faced by first-year medical students can impact mental health. For students to function well, resilience is needed. This study aimed to determine the relationship between resilience knowledge and the mental health of first-year medical students. This quantitative study was conducted at the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Islam Bandung, in October 2022. Respondents were 92 students in the first year of the 2022/2023 academic year. Data collection method by distributing two google form links. The first contains a pre-test regarding resilience knowledge, while the second includes the Self Reporting Questionnaire 29 (SRQ-29). Univariate analysis used distribution assumptions, frequency distribution (median, mean, standard deviation), and proportion distribution (percentage, 95% confidence interval). Bivariate analysis used the t-test, Wilcoxon test, and chi-square test. Most respondents were female, 58.7% (95% CI=52.62, 72.37%). The majority of respondents were 18 years old. The highest order of mental health screening was PTSD symptoms at 58.7% (95% CI=48.27, 68.39%), mental-emotional disorder (anxiety and depression) symptoms at 36.96% (95% CI=27.62, 47.37%), and psychotic symptoms at 27.17% (95% CI 18.98; 37.28%). No respondents experienced symptoms of narcotic or psychotropic drugs. Respondents who indicated mental health disorders were more significant than those who did not, namely 55% (95% CI=49.35, 69.39%). There was no relationship between resilience knowledge and mental health (p=0.75). Respondent's understanding of resilience was good, but more indicated mental health disorders. One way to increase academic resilience is with peer counselors.
