Abstract: Female age is the most important factor affecting fertility. Women are born with all the eggs they will ever have and the number of eggs available decreases each day from birth onwards. In young women the decline is fairly gradual (only a few eggs are ‘lost’ each day), but as women approach their mid to late 30s, the decrease gets much steeper (many more eggs are ‘lost’ each day). In addition to this decrease in the number of eggs available, the quality of the eggs also declines as women get older. This reduction in both the quantity and quality of available eggs means that older women are less likely to get pregnant and, if they do get pregnant, they are more likely to have a miscarriage. Male fertility may also decrease with age although to a much lesser degree.

Abstract: The prevention of spinal anesthesia induced hypotension is important, especially among pregnant women. The women receiving crystalloid loading in spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery, the co-load strategy reduced the incidence of intra operative maternal hypotension and the need for vasopressors. Even though, both pre-loading and co-loading techniques are effective in prevention of hypotension among pregnant women, the co-loading was found to be more efficient. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate how different internal policies affected the management of spinal anesthesia-induced hypotension.

Abstract: This article acknowledges that land reform is critical in the development and transformation of economies especially in Sub Saharan Africa. (SSA). Land reform is a planned purposive change in the way land tenure is held or owned. It also includes the methods of cultivation that are employed and in a way, defines the relation of agriculture to the rest of the economy. Like most economies in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA), agriculture in Zimbabwe plays an important role in the country’s economy and also on the livelihoods of the rural populace whose quest for food security and nutrition, income and expansion of their rural economies is embedded in agriculture.

Abstract: Healthcare-associated infections are the most common kind of patient harm in hospitals. Although 5–10% of hospitalized patients in developed countries have similar infections, the burden of disease is much higher in low- and middle-income countries. Preventing the spread of infectious diseases requires widespread, systematic use of hygiene practices by healthcare workers, but only around 40% of those who should comply actually do so. There are several reasons why hand cleaning is so important in a healthcare setting. It prevents patients from catching infectious diseases that originate inside their bodies as well as those brought in from outside, as well as the spread of germs from one person to another. When combined with other safety measures, it protects medical personnel from the hazards of occupational infections. Reports show that for every 100 hospitalized patients, 10 in emerging and low-income countries and 7 in high-income economies contract at least one HCAI.

Abstract: For the fishing towns that rely on the fishermen of Mogadishu, fishing is a significant source of revenue. The purpose of this study was to gather information on the economic and societal circumstances of these fishing communities in order to identify pressing problems that could be resolved in order to preserve their way of life and secure their participation in the conservation of fish species. Using a questionnaire distributed to the fishermen living along the Mogadishu Coast, information was gathered in a single "snapshot" study. The study illustrates that all of the women employed at the Liido, Urubo, and Abaydhahn landing sites are traders who are smaller than males in business, and it also demonstrates that most fishermen do not own their own land., Bank loans may not be available to fishermen without their own land, and the absence of a strong community-based organization in the fisheries forces poor fishermen to rely on other sources of income, such as wages in other industries like agriculture, construction, etc., or engage in destructive fishing techniques to survive during closed seasons. To finance the purchase of fishing-related supplies, some fishermen borrow money from wealthier fishermen and other local moneylenders. Their ongoing debt to the conventional financial system and a lack of inputs are the key barriers to raising their standard of living.

Abstract: Background: Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a ward that is prone to nosocomial infections. Mechanical ventilation (MV) support is often required by 10-20% of patients admitted to the ICU, where there is always a risk of developed Ventilator-Acquired Pneumonia (VAP). Poor oral hygiene can lead to bacterial colonization of the oropharynx and aspiration of oropharyngeal secretions into the lower respiratory tract is a major factor in the occurrence of VAP. In addition, VAP is an important cause of morbidity, increased use of health resources, increased length of ICU stay and costs. Therefore, since 2003, various efforts have been made to reduce the incidence of VAP in the ICU, one of which is the use of antiseptic mouthwash which is expected to reduce the incidence of VAP. Objective: Obtain the results of chlorhexidine 0,2% mouthwash compared to povidone iodine 1% mouthwash in preventing the incidence of Early VAP in RSUP Haji Adam Malik Medan.

Abstract: Introduction: Coronary-Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) is currently a heart bypass surgery procedure that is often performed and with developing technology. The most common CABG techniques are on-pump and off-pump. This difference in surgical technique affects the final postoperative outcome, namely the length of stay and mortality of patients in the cardiac ICU. On- pump CABG performed at cardiopulmonary bypass is one of the most commonly performed procedures and an excellent treatment for ischemic heart disease. However, the results of a recent retrospective study found that length of stay and postoperative mortality can be reduced when coronary artery bypass surgery is performed using the off-pump technique.

Abstract: World Health Organization (WHO) noted schizophrenia as one out of 10 disability leading diseases contributing to global burden of disease. It’s exact aetiologies are still elucidated, but recent studies have revealed that schizophrenia may be related to oxidative stress. Selenium, a known oxidative stress factor, consists of two forms; non-organic selenium (selenate), and organic selenium (selenometionine, selenosistein) which can be obtained from dietary intake. In this present study, we measured serum level of selenium from 50 Bataknese male with schizophrenia. Measurement was conducted by using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). We found that age and duration of illness are related to serum level of selenium (p = 0.048, r = -0.281 for age, and p = 0.039, r = -0.293 for duration of illness). Serum level of selenium was not associated with positive and negative symptom scale in Bataknese male with schizophrenia.

Abstract: Background: Low back pain (LBP) is a global health issue and the largest contributor to disability affecting about 80% of people during their lifetime and some will develop into Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP). Low back pain also causes mental health problems such as stress, anxiety, and depression. The most common mental health problems associated with low back pain are symptoms of depression. Considering that there is still a lack of awareness of mental disorders that cause an increase in the number of cases of depression in low back pain patients, this present study is to investigate factors related to the development of depressive symptoms in low back pain. 97 samples of patients with low back pain were obtained in this study. Multiple linear regression was then used to assess relationships of independent risk factors to depressive symptoms score. The final multivariate result in the model that fit the factors associated with depression in low back pain patients were age with p value = 0.012 and r value = -0.152, monthly income with p < 0.001 and r value = -0.473, duration of disease with p value < 0.001 and r value = 0.233 were found to contribute to depressive symptom scores for as much as 73.5%. Age, monthly income, duration of disease, are contributing factors related to depressive symptom score among low back pain patients.
