Abstract:

 

Diagnosing pulmonary diseases with auscultation of breath sounds in children is often difficult because of its high dependence on the clinician’s experience of special circumstances involving children. The purpose of this study was to analyze the spectrograms of normal and continuous adventitious breath sounds to reproducibly find the appropriate character of breath sounds through a mechanical analysis

Statement of the Problem: This study aimed to report World Health Organization (WHO) infant and young child feeding (IYCF) indicators from Kuwait; and investigate the association between these indicators and anthropometric measurements. Methodology: Kuwait Nutritional Surveillance System collects data by face-to-face interview with mothers or child guardians using a structured questionnaire that was developed based on WHO IYCF indicators. Weight and length of infants and young children were measured using digital scales in a standardized manner. Setting: Vaccination centers in all governorates of Kuwait. Participants: Infants and young Kuwaiti children aged 0-23 months (N=5,839). Findings: Exclusive breastfeeding was 8.0%. Minimum dietary diversity was 41.6%. The prevalence of stunting and wasting was 7.5% and 2.4%, respectively while the prevalence of overweight and obesity was 6.5% and 1.6%, respectively. In multivariable analysis, exclusive breastfeeding and age appropriate breastfeeding was positively associated with stunting, adjusted odds ratio 1.71 (95%CI: 1.08,2.70) (p=0.021) and 1.44 (95%CI: 1.01,2.06) (p=0.046), respectively. While introduction of solid/semisolid or soft foods was negatively associated with stunting, adjusted odds ratio 0.52 (95%CI: 0.30,0.90) (p=0.021). Only age appropriate breastfeeding was negatively associated with overweight, adjusted odds ratio 0.62 (95%CI: 0.39,0.98) (p=0.043). Conclusion: We have demonstrated that indicators of breastfeeding are low in Kuwait.

Biography:

Thrombocytopenia, commonly encountered in intensive care units, has been shown to be independent predictor of mortality and prolonged hospital stay in critically ill. We conducted a study in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit(PICU) to determine the causes and severity of thrombocytopenia as well as patient outcomes (bleeding and mortality). Materials and methods: Observational study was conducted in PICU of tertiary care hospital, India after ethics committee approval. Data was derived from routine examinations and investigations. Detailed information about demographic data, clinical data, length of stay (LOS), periodic platelet counts, primary diagnosis, complications, sites of bleeding (if any), use of mechanical ventilation and outcome in PICU were noted.

Abstract:

Being diagnosed with breast cancer has always been the number one cancer in Taiwanese women, and many patients have symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal atrophy after treatments. The study integrated cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) into patients with breast cancer and improves discomfort. CBT is particularly suitable for breast cancer care, which can improve the physical and psychological problems of patients with breast cancer and improve their quality of life. However, cognitive behavioral research has some limitations, that is, the experimental group can not be blind, so clinical trials may cause some bias.

Testicular tumors are rare in childhood with majority diagnosed to be malignant. Germ cell tumors (GCT), notably the most common of malignant gonadal tumor comprises only 3% of pediatric cancers. Yolk sac tumor has been documented to have the highest incidence among malignant GCT in children. A seventeen-year old patient presenting with a sixmonth history of gradually enlarging painless left scrotal mass with no accompanying symptoms. Two weeks prior to admission, he developed low-grade fever without chills at night accompanied by non-productive cough. One week later, he had weight loss with decreased appetite hence consult was done. Physical examination revealed a firm, movable, non-tender solid left scrotal mass with inguinal lymphadenopathies. Alpha fetoprotein, Beta HCG and LDH were all elevated. CT scan noted multiple enlarged nodes in the lungs, mediastinal areas, liver, and pancreas
