      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: This study was designed on a research and development approach and aimed to determine the development of originating the innovative community media for preventing emergency medicine among community-dwelling elderly people in Thailand which consisted of 1) the situation analysis and identifying factors related to medical emergencies among the elderly 2) development of the innovative community media to prevent medical emergencies for the elderly, and 3) the effectiveness evaluations of the innovative community media to prevent medical emergencies for the elderly, from January through December 2021. The findings were presented in three processes as follows: Firstly, elderly persons experiencing emergency services were having emergency crisis level nearly 20%. Also, associated factors were 6 factors included Asthma/COPD 8.065 (95%CI=2.383-27.302), CHD/chest pain 6.161 (95% CI = 3.132-12.119), diabetes 4.455 (95% CI = 2.084-9.523), hypertension 4.379 (95% CI = 95% CI = 2,450-2,949), pneumonia 3.945 (95%CI=2.152-7.233), and age ≥ 75 year 2.068 (95%CI=1.450-2.949). Moreover, the protective prevention factors were the early visiting and taking the ambulance Secondly, originating an innovative community media for preventing elderly people against emergency medicine. In this process, 1) to review factors that could be manipulated for preventing the elderly from emergency medicine, 2) to develop the innovative community media for preventing emergency medicine among elderly people that were concerned with the lifestyle of the elderly and the local wisdom, and 3) to evaluate the efficacy of the innovative community media. The results showed that the average satisfaction scores and the average knowledge scores on the innovative community media after training were significantly higher compared to before training. Furthermore, the efficacy of the innovative community media was higher than the established criteria. Finally, the health outcomes of innovative community media to prevent medical emergencies for the elderly after 3 months found that blood pressure levels and blood sugar of the elderly were significant at (P < 0.002) and (P < 0.004), respectively, and disease controls in the elderly with hypertension and diabetes were statistically significant at (P < 0.002) and (P < 0.007), respectively. Moreover, visiting the emergency department and exercise behavior were significant at (P < 0.001).

  • Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative activities of Stephania pierrei
           extracts

    • Authors: Sirilak Kamonwannasit, Bung-on Prajanban, Agarat Kamcharoen, Parkarang Srimee
      Pages: 25 - 34
      Abstract: A tuber of Stephania pierrei Diels (Menispermaceae) has been used as a traditional medicine for edema, migraine, and heart related to inflammation. The objective of this study was to determine the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory activities of S. pierrei tuber extracts including hot water extract (SH) and ethanolic extract (SE). Hydroxyl radical and superoxide radical scavenging activities were used to analyze their anti-oxidative activities Reverse Transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to investigate the gene expression of pro-inflammatory mediators including IL-1β, COX-2, TNF-α, IL-6, and iNOS compared with a housekeeping gene, β-actin. In addition, the cytotoxicity of extracts against RAW264.7 macrophages was also determined by using an MTT assay.. The results showed that both SE and SH showed high anti-oxidative activity. The SE showed slightly stronger superoxide radical scavenging activity than SH. For cytotoxic effect, SE showed higher cytotoxicity than SH with IC50 of 96.14±1.79 μg/ml and 191.80±6.08 μg/ml, respectively. Both extracts as well as the standard compounds, significantly suppressed the gene expression of all pro-inflammatory mediators. The SE effectively suppressed COX-2 gene expression to the same degree as the SH (IC50 of 50.85±2.15 μg/ml and 56.54±0.97 μg/ml, respectively). Moreover, the SE showed a stronger inhibitory effect than the SH on the gene expression, especially IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α genes. These results indicated that S. pierrei tuber extracts might decrease inflammation via suppression of pro-inflammatory mediator gene expression and their anti-oxidative activity. Therefore, S. pierrei tubers can be a good candidate for the development of anti-inflammatory health products.

           suis infection in Uttaradit hospital

    • Authors: Watcharapol Poonual
      Pages: 47 - 56
      Abstract: The purpose of this research was to study risk factors that increase hearing loss in a patient with Streptococcus suis infection in Uttaradit hospital in Thailand as Streptococcus suis infection inclines to increase constantly particularly in Uttaradit province which has been ranked as the second place in the country and high risk of hearing loss. A retrospective case-control study was designed and data was taken from medical records and audiograms of the patients who visited Uttaradit hospital from 1 January 2009 to 31 October 2019. They were first diagnosed with Streptococcus suis infection and had the evidence of auditory evaluation. Ninety-two patients were chosen which were divided into 38 patients who had sensorineural hearing loss or mixed hearing loss as a study group and another 54 patients who the individual had no hearing loss or conductive hearing loss as a control group. The data of this research were studied using descriptive and analytical statistics. Results and Discussion: The results revealed that dyslipidemia and meningitis were associated with significantly increasing the chance of hearing loss by 28.7 (95%CI=1.20-685.18, p=0.038) and 8.2 (95%CI=1.99-14.19, p=0.004) times, respectively. In patients with hypertension, male and kidney diseases have significantly increased by 2.1 ((95%CI=0.59-7.80, p=0.250), 1.8 (95%CI=0.38-8.68, p=0.457) and 1.4 (95%CI=0.30-6.21, p=0.684)) times, respectively. The descriptive statistics were analyzed using the count data and percentage, the chi-square test and Fisher’s exact test. The univariate and multivariate logistic regression model were used to analyze all explanatory variables interpreted as Odds ratio, 95% CI and p-value. Conclusions: The patients with Streptococcus suis infection and dyslipidemia and/or meningitis have increased the risk of hearing loss. Therefore, the surveillance of these patients is strongly recommended in order to decrease the incidence of hearing loss.

  • Association Between the Level of Body Mass Index and Cognitive Function
           and Functional Mobility in the Elderly

    • Authors: chayanee kaewthong, Monchuleeporn Viriyawattanakul
      Pages: 87 - 97
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and cognitive function, cognitive function and functional mobility and to make comparisons between cognitive function and BMI of the elderly. There were 183 participants in this study. Participants were divided into 5 groups by BMI. [ The cognitive function was collected by Montreal cognitive assessment (MOCA) test and functional mobility was collected by Timed up and go (TUG) test. The correlation was analyzed using a Spearman correlation. The comparison of cognitive function between 5 groups was analyzed by using one-way Analysis of variance (ANOVA). The results showed that all of 5 groups had cognitive impairment (93.44%). Most of the elderly have an abnormal BMI (78.14%) and abnormal functional mobility (57.37%). The statistical analysis found the correlation between cognitive and functional mobility (r=-0.364). However, there was no correlation between body mass index and cognitive function, and no significant difference of cognitive function between the 5 groups (p=0.393). The results of this study indicated that body mass index is not related to cognitive function, but the elderly with cognitive impairment had slower movements. Therefore, they should be aware of proper care and a rehabilitation program.

      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to 1) study perceptions about particulate matter and 2) study preventive behavior towards particulate matter. The sample group was 145 personnel of an organization in Bangkok. Data were collected by using questionnaires about perception and preventive behaviors towards particulate matter. The content is divided into 3 sections as follows: 1) general information about the respondents 2) perception about particulate matter and 3) preventive behavior towards particulate matter. The statistics used were descriptive statistics. The results showed that the sample had access to information relating to particulate matter from Facebook (86.2%), followed by TV (84.8%) and Line (69%). The sample perceived the susceptibility of particulate matter at the highest level (x̄=4.55, SD=0.42). The perceived severity of particulate matter was at a high level (x̄= 4.41, SD=0.50), perceived benefits of protection against particulate matter was at a high level (x̄= 3.99, SD=0.67), perceived barriers of protection against particulate matter were at a high level (x̄=3.69, SD=0.77). Also, the preventive behaviors towards micro-dust were at a high level (x̄=4.03, SD=0.71). The most average self-protective behaviors were not burning waste/paper/plastic, always wearing a mask. and avoiding activities that increase the respiratory rate.

      Abstract: This descriptive research study aims to study the level of sleep quality and factors affecting the students’ sleep quality, in the faculty of Public and Environmental Health of Huachiew Chalermprakiet University. The sample size of 199 students was used to study personal factors, sleep quality, sleep behaviors, stress and environment. The research instrument was a questionnaire of 5 parts. The content validity of the questionnaire was examined by 3 experts. The Item Objective Congruence (IOC) index is between 0.67-1.00 of the questionnaire. The confidence values of the questionnaire, sleep quality, sleep behavior, stress and environment were 0.71, 0.71, 0.76 and 0.72, respectively. This study used frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation for data analyzed. Simple Regression Analysis was used to predict factors affecting the sleep quality of students, in the faculty of Public and Environmental Health of Huachiew Chalermprakiet University. The results of this study showed that the students of the faculty of Public and Environmental Health of Huachiew Chalermprakiet University had the sleep quality at a moderate level (x̄= 2.75, S.D = 0.80) and sleep behavior factor affecting sleep quality was significant at the level of 0.05 (b = 0.336, p < 0.05, R2 = 0.117), while the stress factors did not significantly affect the sleep quality at a level of 0.05 (b = -0.098, p > 0.05, R2 = 0.010). In addition, the environment factor did not significantly affect the sleep quality at a level of 0.05 (b = -0.157, p > 0.05, R2 = 0.013.)

      Pages: 117 - 128
      Abstract: COVID-19 is a respiratory infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus, initially found to cause disease in China in December 2019. Since then, the number of confirmed cases has increased rapidly all over the world. In Thailand, the Ministry of Health has an urgent policy to control the spread of infection. As a result, Siriraj hospital has a proactive policy to establish an Emerging Infectious Diseases Clinic, Acute Respiratory Infection Clinic and Physical Distancing Clinic. The results showed that the spread of infection to other patients could be controlled and that reduced the risk of infection among personnel. From the context of the outpatient nurses, working in various medical examination departments and clinics to support the COVID-19 emergency situation, the results showed environmental management and nursing competency for triage patients to be the most important. However, the problems and obstacles of nurses were also encountered such as triage skill, readiness to handle Emerging Infectious Diseases, service system development using technology and news tracking of Emerging Infectious Diseases.
