The bioequivalence test was carried out with a cross-sectional study design with two stages, a randomized, crossover, two-way, double-blind, single-dose control, with pharmacokinetic parameters including AUC 0-t, Cmax, Tmax T1/2, which included 21 male and female healthy adult individuals under fasting conditions. Blood plasma levels were mea

The durability of Temporary Hemodialysis Catheter by Insertion Site in Hemodialysis Patients in Dr. Soetomo Hospital Surabaya

Abstract : Temporary hemodialysis catheter (NTHC, Non-tunneled hemodialysis catheter) can be used in cases of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in emergency settings. According to KDOQI 2019 guidelines, NTHC should not exceed two weeks in Internal Jugular or Subclavian vein and five days in the femoral vein. However, the use of NTHC in Indonesia and many other countries exceed the recommended use. This study aims to determine the durability of NTHC on three different sites (Interna

Echocardiographic Evaluation of Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints that may also manifest with extra-articular characteristics. Cardiovascular disorders are among those extra-articular characteristics, including pericarditis, cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, cardiac amyloidosis, coronary vasculitis, arrhythmia, valve diseases, and, most significantly, congestive heart failure and ischemic heart disease. RA is linked to a higher death rate when compared to the general population, the bulk of w

Relationship between Troponin Level and Systolic and Diastolic Dysfunction in Children with Sepsis

Abstract : Sepsis induced myocardial dysfunction (SIMD) increases mortality risk to 70-90% compared to sepsis without cardiovascular system dysfunction. Troponin is a specific and sensitive marker for myocardial injuries, where high troponin levels are frequently reported in critically ill adult patients. However, very few studies are available on systolic and diastolic heart functions in child patients with sepsis in relation to troponin levels. This was a prospective cohort research to assess the troponi

Sunrise Syndrome: A Case Report

Abstract : Sunrise syndrome is a complication that most often occurs after cataract surgery. This complication occurs in cataract surgery with improper fixation of the IOL inside the capsular bag, or incomplete capsulorhexis. Overall, the incidence rate of Sunrise syndrome has actually decreased a lot with the increasing use of curved capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification with the safe placement of IOL in capsular bag [1]. To report the case of a patient who had sunrise syndrome. Woman 52 years old with ma

Effects of Training of Rice Farmers in OHS and Use of PPE on The Occurrence of Occupational Accidents and Rice Production

Abstract : Accidents among rice farmers are on the rise. We conducted a two year quasi experiment to investigate the effects of training on occupational health and safety standards (OHS) and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) on the occurrence of occupational accidents (OA) and rice production by rice farmers in rural Java Island, Indonesia. We randomly chose 70 rice farmers from adjacent villages within one sub-district of Sleman Regency. These farmers were randomly allotted to two groups of thirt

Changes In Clean Living Behavior In Mentally Retarded Children: An Quasi-Experimental Study Using The Flashcard Method

Abstract : Children with mental retardation have a high vulnerability to exposure to diseases such as Covid-19. Special interventions are needed to increase the knowledge of mentally retarded children so that they can practice handwashing skills with soap so as to minimize the transmission of Covid-19 and other diseases. One method that can be applied in the intervention of handwashing with soap is the drill method with flashcard media. This study aims to examine the effect of the flashcard-based drill met
