  • Evaluation of therapeutic management in women with lumbar spine pain

    • Authors: Agnieszka Zbylut, Katarzyna Wódka
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: Aim of the study: To evaluate the effects of two different modes of improvement on the level of perceived pain, spinal mobility, lumbar spinal motion control and limitations in activities of daily living in women aged 51–62 with lumbar spine pain. Material and methods: The study included a group of 31 women between the ages of 51 and 62. The subjects were divided into 2 groups. Group I (FK) received physical therapy treatments and general gymnastics, while group II (FS) received physical therapy treatments and exercises using a PBU stabilizer. The project covered a period of 10 treatment days excluding Saturdays and Sundays. Before and immediately after the rehabilitation, tests of flexion and extension control in the L-spine, active knee joint flexion test, Schober test were performed, and the NRS scale was used scale and QBPDS scale. Results: After the applied rehabilitation, a significant reduction in the level of perceived pain and improvement in spinal mobility in the direction of flexion were observed in both groups. In the FS group, there was also a significant improvement in lumbar flexion control and better lumbar spine control during the active knee flexion test. In addition, a reduction in disability as measured by the QBPDS scale was noted. Conclusions: The use of comprehensive rehabilitation brings significant improvements in terms of pain reduction and improvement in lumbar spine mobility in the flexion direction. A two-week exercise program using a stabilizer appears to yield significantly better results in terms of lumbar flexion control as well as better lumbar control during the active flexion test of both knee joints. And this, in turn, may affect the results obtained using the QBPDS scale among FS subjects.

  • A simulation structure for nursing education in mental health

    • Authors: Aneta Grochowska, Johanna Kero, Sari Teeri, Pauliina Alinen, Małgorzata Kołpa, Sheila Cunnigham, Manuel Lillo-Crespo, Neville Schembri, Phylis Farrugia Abanifi, Hanna-Mari Pesonen, Annukka Kukkola, Anne Prest, Anna Stefanowicz-Kocoł, Sandra Felliciano
      Pages: 13 - 20
      Abstract: The aim of the paper is to present a structure for nursing education simulation that incorporates elements of blended and online simulation in a socially constructivist, culturally sensitive environment. To develop the structure for nursing education, a descriptive literature review was conducted in spring 2022 on simulations implemented in mental health nursing education. Nurses require the skills and knowledge to provide mental health care in every area of health care. According to the descriptive literature review, simulation-based learning such as high-fidelity mental health simulation resulted in increased confidence, knowledge gains and improved communication skills.
      Simulation is a wide concept and allows nurse lecturers to implement the pedagogy as they see it best. The Simulation structure helps especially beginners to follow the simulation as a process. The structure eases the planning phase as well as the debriefing part of the simulation. As it has been shown in the analysis of the literature simulation can be effectively implemented in a blended and / or online environment. It is expected that in the future, simulation games and virtual, online simulations will be more typical ways to conduct a simulation.

  • Diet of the 21st-century person — food intolerances and elimination

    • Authors: Ewa Gacoń
      Pages: 21 - 28
      Abstract: In a dynamically changing world and environment, the human diet is subject to numerous changes, as well as the quality of selected products. More and more often, patients who report gastrointestinal complaints after eating certain foods come to doctors. This situation often ends with the introduction of an elimination diet, which conducted without the supervision of a specialist, can have various negative effects. The work aims to present the latest results of research on the diet of modern man, published in international journals, available in the PubMed database and the Google Schoolar. The review discusses the most common food intolerances, their mechanisms and treatment options with particular emphasis on therapy with elimination diets and their potential health consequences. The discussed health problems are related to environmental changes and at the same time, significantly reduce the quality of life of people struggling with them.

  • Home herbal remedies based on the “School” Calendar of 1896

    • Authors: Marek Smoła
      Pages: 29 - 35
      Abstract: The article is the source edition of the text originating from the XIX century and primarily published in the calendar contributing the addition to the magazine entitled Szkolnictwo, addressed to the teachers of folk schools. Although the text was published in print in 1895 in Polish, it comes originally from the German publication of Sebastian Kneipp, priest and prominent authority in the field of natural medicine. His work entitled Meine Wasserkur (from 1886), was translated into Polish as early as in 1890. It soon turned out that the treatment method proposed by Kneipp is consistent with folk herbal medicine practised in Polish Galicia. Therefore, the work of Kneipp became the basis of advice and guidance published in Calendar in 1895 as well as this very publication.

  • 26th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Travel Medicine (DFR)
           Leipzig, Germany, 7–9 September 2023

    • Authors: Thomas Küpper
      Pages: 36 - 45
      Abstract: This year the meeting included again a wide variety of topics. Beside of ‘typical’ ones like malaria (Rothe) or actual aspects concerning vaccinations (Burchard, Kling) other lecturers reported about international aid in the case of catastrophies (Schad), polar regions (Kohlberg), volcano tourism (Heggie), diving medicine (Koonen and Schröder), rare diseases like naegleria (Heggie), and even work in space (Ewald). A session focused tricky cases from daily routine travel medicine. There was also a special invitation to young scientists, students and clinicians with a specific event. Poster presentations added topics for discussions.
