 ANALYSIS OF PUBLIC HEALTH RISK EXPOSURE TO THE HEAVY METAL MERCURY (Hg) THROUGH THE CONSUMPTION OF MANGROVE CRAB IN KAYELI BAY MALUKU PROVINCE

Abstract : Mangrove Crab or Scylla Serrata is a source of biodiversity whose habitat is in the mangrove forest in Kayeli Bay which generally grows and develops in coastal areas. Unlicensed gold mining activities on Buru Island resulted in mercury being deposited at the bottom of the river and the waters of Kayeli Bay. This will increase the potential for bioaccumulation and bioconcentration of mercury in mangrove crabs. The purpose of the Research is to determine the level of accumulation of heavy metal Hg


The Effect of Apium graveolens (Linn.) Extract on the Number of Neutrophils and Angiogenesis in Wound Incision of Sprague Dawley Rat

Abstract : Wounds were a challenging clinical problem that often caused morbidity and mortality. Apium graveolens (Linn.) was an herbal plant that had anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects which were considered to accelerate the wound healing process. The number of neutrophils and angiogenesis was an element that played an important role in the wound healing process. Thus, the administration of Apium graveolens (Linn.) extract was expected to help in the process of wound healing which could be viewed


THE USEFULLNESS OF TRANSESOPHAGEAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY GUIDANCE DURING TRANS CATHETER CLOSURE OF VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECT WITHOUT FLUOROSCOPY

Abstract : Perimembranous Ventricular Septal Defect (PmVSD) is one of the most common type of congenital heart abnormality. Transcatheter closure of PmVSD is an emerging alternative modality to surgical closure, but has high radiation exposure. We reported a transcatheter VSD closure in PmVSD’s patient through femoral venous route under the guidance of Trans-Esophageal Echocardiography (TEE), without fluoroscopy. The catheter’s delivery and device deployment guided by long axis and short axis TEE’s v


Prediction Model of Quality of Life Based on Lifestyle in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients with Peripheral Neuropathy

Abstract : Diabetes mellitus and its complications like peripheral neuropathy are priority non-communicable diseases that the number of patients increased over time. This condition will result in a progressive decrease in the life quality of patients. Controlled risk factors to decrease quality of life needs to be done, one of the most important risk factors is a lifestyle. This study was to create a prediction model of quality of life-based on lifestyle in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with peripheral


E-Audit Compliance with the Use of Personal Protective Equipment in Hospital

Abstract : Designing and developing a software-based "e-Audit for Hospital Personal Protective Equipment" system, could improve service, speed of time, accuracy, more thorough integration, and ease in the audit process for compliance with the use of Personal Protective Equipment in hospitals. The study was a waterfall. The study resulted “e-Audit of Hospital Personal Protective Equipment” system that has been done through four stages including analysis, design, implementation, and testing. The results


ANALYSIS OF THE RISK FACTORS OF CARBAMATES AND ORGANOPHOSPHATE PESTICIDE POISONING ON RED ONION FARMERS IN PERANGIAN VILLAGE, BARAKA DISTRICT, ENREKANG REGENCY, 2022

Abstract : Measuring the risk of various factors that influence the incidence of organophosphate and carbamate pesticide poisoning in shallot spraying farmers in Perangian Village, Baraka District, Enrekang Regency in 2022. This research is an observational analytic study using a retrospective case control study design which aims to determine the effect of age, nutritional status, wind direction, land area, working period, level of farmer knowledge, determining pesticide doses, how to store pesticides, how


The Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) on Oxygen Saturation of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) Patients

Abstract : A new pandemic afflicts the entire world. The highly contagious severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus originated in Wuhan, China in late 2019 and rapidly spread across the entire globe. Patients with coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) disease present with a wide array of symptoms, ranging from mild complaints such as low oxygen levels to life threatening pulmonary and cardiac complications. New therapeutic interventions to treat COVID-19 symptoms include hyperbaric ox


Low Glasgow Coma Scale Score as a Risk Factor of Death in Children with Acute Encephalitis Syndrome

Abstract : Acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) is a global health problem. Globally, the incidence found in 10.5 per 100.000. In a study in India, the most common age for AES cases was 1 to 7 years. Children with AES have a tendency to experience bad outcomes both disability and even death. In AES, diffuse brain edema occurs which causes disturbance of consciousness. The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) is the instrument of choice for assessing a person's level of consciousness and is widely associated with children


Zinc level in children with sickle cell anemia : Meta-analysis

Abstract : Sickle cell anemia is a chronic, inherited hemoglobinopathy disease that has a high morbidity and mortality. Zinc has a crucial role in immunity and growth, which are affected in these patients. This review evaluated the zinc level in sickle cell anemia patients. Cochrane Library, PubMed, Medline, and Google Scholar were searched and limited to the period from January 2012 to December 2022. The keywords "zinc levels," "sickle cell disease," "serum zinc," "sickle cell anemia," and "urinary zinc"


Comparative Study of the Effect of MTAD Irrigation Solution Activated By Laser on the Micro-Hardness of the Radicular Dentin

Abstract : The work aims to compare the influence of irrigation solution MTAD when activated by laser and without activation on the root dentin micro-hardness (MH). Thirty root samples were prepared into two equal halves for dentin MH measurements. The sixty root halves were subdivided equally into three groups (twenty samples each) according to the utilized irrigation solution: MTAD activated by laser, MTAD non-activated by laser and deionized water (control group). Samples from each group were used for d
