Abstract

Introduction: Hearing problems in school-age children impact several aspects of their quality of life (QoL). This study aims to describe the presiding QoL domains in students with hearing problems and investigate factors related to their quality of life.Methods: A cross-sectional study design using a modification of the World Health Organization Quality of Life Abbreviation version (WHOQOL-BREF) applied in a special school for hearing-impaired students. The self-answered questionnaire was collected by the teacher, along with several questions of sociodemographic and community engagement. A descriptive analysis was conducted to describes the QoL domains on student's characteristics. The multivariate analysis was then performed to denotes the association between variables of interest and QoL domains.Results: A total of 34 students were enrolled in the study. The environment domain shows the highest scores (65.5±14), while social interaction is the lowest (51.7±10). The environment and the social interaction domains indicate a positive correlation with community engagement (p=0.04). A negative correlation was found between the environment domain and age (p=0.0001).Conclusion: Deaf-community engagement has a positif correlation with the environment and social interaction domain in the student's quality of life. The low social interaction scores specify the importance of community engagement in motivation and self-development. Special attention to older students needed to improve their adaptation ability in society and function normally

Abstract

Introduction: Posner-Schlossman Syndrome (PSS) or glaucomatocyclitic crisis is a rare ophthalmic disease characterized by unilateral, acute, and recurrent attacks of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) accompanied by mild anterior chamber inflammation without any conclusive causative factor. This case report represents a concurrence of Ethambutol-induced Optic Neuropathy (EON) and recurrent episode of PSS. Although this combination rarely occurs, but it can significantly affect the prognosis of both conditions.Case: A 41-year-old woman with unilateral ocular pain and blurred vision for the last 24 hours presented with left anterior uveitis, elevated intraocular pressure 56.7 mmHg and was diagnosed with left eye PSS. Five years later she showed signs of bilateral EON after 5 months of ethambutol administration as tuberculosis treatment. Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) was (20/80 OD, 20/70 OS), with an unspecified bilateral cecocentral scotomas. After 1 month of ethambutol cessation, the patient had a recurrent episode of PSS on the left eye and worsening the visual acuity more on both eyes (20/400 OD, 20/200 OS). The patient was then treated with methylprednisolone injection, and the visual acuity starts to improve (20/100 ODS).Conclusion: Comprehensive examination to detect probable etiologies of PSS is important to prevent recurrences and possible comorbidities with other eye disease, such as EON in this case. Patients undergoing ethambutol medication should be assessed by an ophthalmologist before, during and after finished treatment to evaluate the patient’s risk factors, past medical history and progression of visual acuity during treatment.

Abstract

Introduction: Education is part of a child's learning process to form cognitive abilities and a good personality. Children who are unable to involve thinking skills, sensory and motor integration systems, as well as verbal and non-verbal functions, will experience learning disorders. The inability to read (dyslexia), write (dysgraphia), or arithmetic (dyscalculia) forms the domain of specific learning disorder in children. Identification and intervention of such cases require the full cooperation of parents, medical personnel, and teachers. Case: A boy, seven years of age, had been having barrier in reading based on six months of observation by school teacher since first-grade elementary school. The child did not have health problems, growth and development were according to age, and was able to engage in social interaction both at school and home environment. The patient fulfilled the reading domain criteria of specific learning disorder based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). Patients received adequate intervention and are now successfully in the second grade of elementary school with the advancement in reading skills. Conclusion: The importance of early identification, intervention, and long term follow up in children with a specific learning disorder to achieve optimal quality of life.

Abstract

Introduction: Amniocentesis is an invasive procedure that removes the amount of amniotic fluid to obtain fetal cells to chromosomal examination. It's one of the prenatal diagnostic techniques and methods introduced during the last ten years. This practice is essential to present because of the large incidence of chromosomal abnormalities in infants, which is 90 events per 10,000 births.Objective: This article is used as a learning material to increase insight regarding amniocentesis, which is the most frequently used invasive prenatal diagnostic method. Amniocentesis has a reasonably high success rate and helps prevent and detect early hereditary diseases and congenital abnormalities in the unborn fetus.Method: The writing of this article used the narrative review method as part of the literature studyDiscussion: Amniocentesis has other purposes, such as fetal lung maturity level assessment, and determines whether fetal infection occurred. The amniocentesis procedure is usually done at 15-20 weeks' gestation. If the amniocentesis procedure is performed earlier than 15 weeks' gestation, the risk of pregnancy loss increases. Amniotic fluid phospholipid analysis can determine the degree of fetal lung maturation. Amniotic fluid can also be used for biochemical analysis, molecular studies, and microarray chromosome analysis (CMA).

Abstract

Introduction: An individual’s overall muscle strength is commonly assessed by a power grip measurement, a reliable indicator of functional capacity and physical condition. The development of muscle parallels the changes of body composition during growth. Aim of this study is to examine the correlationship between hand grip strength and anthropometric. Methods: This cross-sectional study involved 76 male students of Dhammasavana School, aged between 12 – 16 years old, North Jakarta. Hand grip strength was examined using a digital dynamometer on the dominant side. Statistical analysis was computed using SPSS ver. 15.0 program with Spearman correlations test. Significance was set at p<0.05. Results: Dominant hand grip strength was found to have significant (p<0.05 - 0.001) positive correlation with height (r=0.612), lower arm muscle-and-bone cross-sectional circumference and area (CSA) (r=0.553 and r=0.553 respectively), hand length (r=0.548), forearm length (r=0.540), age (r=0.520), weight (r=0.416), and forearm girth (r=0.376). Conclusion: No significant correlation between grip strength and body mass index was found. Positive correlations between the variables mentioned above conclude that the higher the value of the anthropometric measurements, the greater the strength generated in a power grip.

Abstract

Introduction: Febrile seizure is the most common type of seizure in children, mostly occurred in children aged 6 months to 5 years. The aim of the study was to describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of febrile seizures in children in the Baptist Hospital Batu. Methods: This was a cross-sectional research, including febrile seizure children (n=41) who were admitted into the Baptist Hospital Batu on January 2017 to October 2018. The data was collected from the medical records and described and presented in frequency tables. Results: Febrile seizure was common in boys (61%), aged 1 to 2 years old (46.3%). Generalized seizure (97.6%) was the most febrile seizures. The duration of seizure was <15 minutes (95.1%) with the majority patients with febrile seizure experience one seizure episode (73.2%). Simple febrile seizure (70.7%) was more common than complex febrile seizures. The body temperature was ≥38⁰ C (68.3%), however, the leukocyte counts was normal (63.4%). Conclusion: Febrile children younger than 2 years old, especially boys need to be well monitored as these children may develop into febrile seizure.

Abstract

Introduction: Indiscriminate use of antibiotics contributes to the increasing resistance of more than one type of bacterias. Research on new antibiotic therapies and agents cannot keep up with the rapid antibiotic resistance. This study aimed to describe the patterns of antibiotic sensitivity and resistance at the Orthopedic and Traumatology Hospital (RSOT) Surabaya. Methods: This was a cross-sectional descriptive study. Secondary data from medical records year 2016-2018 were retrieved from patients treated at RSOT Surabaya who received antibiotic therapy. Only those with data of antibiotic sensitivity test results were included Results: The sensitivity test results of all b-lactamase inhibitors and cephalosporin antibiotics showed a decrease in sensitivity each year with a variety of coverage patterns. The fluoroquinolone group had increased sensitivity during the observation period. Conversely, a reduction in gentamicin sensitivity was followed by an increase in the resistance. This increase in resistance was also observed in meropenem with various sensitivity patterns. Linezolid sensitivity increased, while the sensitivity of teicoplanin remained 100.00%. Conclusion: There is no particular pattern in antibiotic sensitivity and bacterial resistance in RSOT Surabaya, except for cephalosporin, which shows a rising resistance and a decrease in sensitivity each year.

Abstract

Introduction: Online game addiction is a disorder with uncontrolable behavioral when playing online games. The academic achievement may decrease and has been negatively affected due to lack of learning motivation. The purpose of this study was to explore the relation between online game addiction and learning motivation among junior high school students in north Jakarta.Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in 1,474 junior high school students by filling in the questionnaire, consisting of the Indonesian Online Game Addiction Questionnaire (IOGAQ) and the Motivation Learning Strategy Questionnaire (MSLQ). The inclusion criteria were all junior high school (SMP) class I to class III in Kelurahan Penjaringan, North Jakarta. The exclusion criteria were students who did not signed the consent form. Bivariate test and multivariate logistic regression test were performed to analyze data.Results: From 1,474 respondents, most of them (52.5%) were aged 14 years old and girls (37.8%). The addiction to online game was more prevalent in boys (90.1%) and girls (79.1%), mostly (87.3%) in grade 1 junior high school. The respondents with online game addiction often played online games ≥4 days/week (95%), with the duration of playing online games on school days (95.5%) or holidays (94.2%) was >4hours/day. The types of online games played was role playing games (85.8%) using a portable tool (94,8%). The learning motivation was low (86.3%). Interestingly, bivariate analysis showed no significant relationship between online game addiction and learning motivation (p≥0.05).Conclusion: There is no significant relation between online game addiction and learning motivation. However, online game addiction need to be closely monitored as this may impact the learning motivation.

Abstract

Introduction: Hyperlipidemia is the cause of 18% of cardiovascular disease and 56% of ischemic heart disease worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. In its role against cardiovascular disease, green tea and black tea can be used as an alternative treatment in reducing triglyceride levels.Methods: This study is an in vivo experimental. This experiment using 16 Rattus norvegicus rats strain Sprague-Dawley induced with lard and raw quail egg yolk before and divided into two groups; green tea and black tea groups. Treatment is carried out for 17 days and checking the triglyceride level before and after intervention using test strip and tools from Lipid Pro. Data were collected and analyzed using the Shapiro-Wilk test, paired t-test, and unpaired t-test. Results: The results showed that the data were normally distributed (Shapiro-Wilk test p> 0.05). Treatment with green tea and black tea for 17 days led to a significant drop in triglyceride level (paired t-test p <0.05), and there is a significant difference between the effectiveness of the intervention group (unpaired t-test p <0.05).Conclusion: There was a significant decrease in rats’ triglyceride levels in the administration of green tea and black tea, and green tea is more effective than black tea in reducing triglyceride levels on hyperlipidemic Rattus Norvegicus.
