Abstract

Background: Stroke is one of the leading causes of global disability. Post stroke rehabilitation program becomes the key to gain functional recovery. Thus it minimizes disabilities. Multiple studies have been carried out to gain greater functional outcomes for post stroke patients, including medical therapy such as supplements. However, supplement effectiveness in providing stroke recovery or prevention is still debatable. There is no data of supplement consumption among post stroke patients; therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the supplement consumption among post stroke patients.Methods: This study was a cross sectional descriptive study using primary data with a consecutive sampling method. Minimum samples for this study were 42 post stroke respondents who followed rehabilitation program. This study was conducted at Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic of Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung from June until November 2013. The interviews were done after written informed consent was obtained. Descriptive statistics such as frequency distributin and proportion were used to analyze the data.Results: From 42 respondents, 23 (55%) respondents consumed the supplement. From 34 supplements recorded, 56% were herbs supplements; followed by multivitamin (29%), mineral (6%), multivitamin and mineral (6%), and other supplement (3%). The most frequent ingredients composed in the supplements were B1, B6 and B12 vitamin (7%).Conclusions: More than a half of post stroke patients at Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital are supplement users, with herbal supplements as the majority. The most frequent ingredients used are B1, B6 and B12 vitamin. [AMJ.2016;3(3):451–8]DOI: 10.15850/amj.v3n3.865

The incidence of CTS quite often occur in people working with their hands, for instance the administrative staff, especially in a busy workplace such as Dr.Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung. CTS causes reduction in work productivity, and consequently degrading family welfare and the quality of public service. For that very reason, the prevalence and characteristics of CTS among administrative staff at Dr.HasanSadikin General Hospital Bandung needed to be revealed.Methods: This quantitative descriptive study involved 94 administrative staff in the Medical record department of Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital using the Carpal-tunnel.net questionnaire and further examinations by neurologists. Variables involved in this study were the subject characteristics.Results: Out of the 90 subjects, 22 stated having symptoms related to CTS (prevalence, 24.4%). On further clinical examination, 3 were diagnosed of suffering from CTS (prevalence, 3.3%).Conclusions: Carpal tunnel syndrome is found among the administrative staff at Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung  and the prevalence is lower than in the general population. A further study is required to reveal ther specific division in the hospital with the most prevalent CTS case.DOI: 10.15850/amj.v4n2.1077

Abstract

pathophysiologic mechanism that underlies each stroke type may give different outcome in post-stroke patients. This study aimed to compare the improvement of functional outcome between both types of stroke among stroke patients admitted to Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital (RSHS).Methods: Consecutive sampling was carried out on first-ever stroke patients admitted to neurological inpatient unit of RSHS from September 2015 to October 2015. Functional recovery, measured by subtracting Canadian Neurological Scale (CNS) on day-8 and day-1 of admission, was compared among two subgroups and analyzed using Mann-Whitney U test. Baseline characteristics were collected and analyzed.Results: Total of thirteen stroke patients was included in this study: ten ischemic stroke and three hemorrhagic stroke patients. CNS score improvement between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke patients was not significantly different. However, hemorrhagic stroke had higher score than ischemic stroke with 0.30 CNS score difference.Conclusions: CNS improvement between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke was not significantly different.  DOI: 10.15850/amj.v4n2.1069

Abstract

  Background: Reduced handgrip strength is an aging process that influences the activities of daily living among elderly people. Handgrip strength varies greatly with age, gender, anthropometric measurement and nutritional status. This study aimed to determine the profile of handgrip muscle strength, physical characteristic, nutritional assessment and activities of daily living among elderly Methods: This study was conducted at Karitas nursing home, Bandung on September 2012. This is a descriptive study by collecting primary data from 28 elderly people. Data were collected in 2 days within 2 weeks. The first data collection included details of anthropometric measurement and handgrip measurement. The second data collection included face to face interview using standardized questionnaire for mini nutritional assessment and Barthel index.Result: The mean age of the respondents was 74.14 ± 8.5189 years. The average reading on handgrip muscle strength was 30.84 ± 12.0175 lbs for right hand and 27.77 ± 11.3778 lbs for left hand. For anthropometric measurement, most of the respondents had normal weight body mass index status (39.3%). Nutritional status of respondents evaluated by mini nutritional assessment showed that most of the respondents were at risk of malnutrition (64.3%). The activities of daily living assessment based Barthel Index showed that half of the respondents were dependent in activities of daily living (50%).Conclusions: From this  study, it can be concluded that the grip strength of all the respondents are weaker. Majority have normal body weight, malnutrition risk, and half of the subjects are depend on others in doing their daily activities.Keywords: Activities of daily living, anthropometry, elderly, handgrip strength, nutritional status DOI: 10.15850/amj.v2n1.423

Abstract

Abstract: This pre-experimental research aimed to find out whether there is a significant effect of chain story on the ability of the second year students of SMAN 5 Pekanbaru in writing narrative text. This research was conducted by using one-group pre-test post-test design. Class XI IPA 5 was chosen as the sample by using cluster random sampling. A paired samples t-test was conducted to compare the students’ writing score before and after the treatment and to analyze the hypotheses. The result showed that the t-test score was 17.148 while t-table score in significance level 5%, df= 34 was 2.032. Since t-test was higher than t-table, it can be concluded that alternative hypothesis (Ha) was accepted and null hypothesis (H0) was rejected. It can be further understood that chain story has a significant effect on the ability of the second year students of SMAN 5 Pekanbaru in writing narrative texts. Based on the research findings, it is suggested that chain story can be used by teachers in teaching writing narrative text.Key Words: Effect, Chain Story, Writing, Narrative Text

Abstract

Objective: To discover isometric knee extensor muscle strength prediction formula using hand-held dynamometer (HHD) through the use of modified aneroid sphygmomanometer (MAS). Isometric knee extensor muscle strength examination is required to diagnose and evaluate the treatment of quadriceps femoris weakness.Methods: This was a quantitative observational and correlational analysis study with cross-sectional design. Isometric knee extensor muscle strength was measured using HHD and MAS with 60o knee flexion in sitting position. Correlation tests were performed to investigate the correlation between HHD, MAS, and other variables. Regression test was carried out to analyze knee extensor strength regression using HHD through MAS.Results: TSubjects enrolled were 25 healthy females aged 23–52 years old. The correlation between HHD and MAS was significant while age, body weight, body height, and body mass index (BMI) did not show correlation with HHD and MAS. The isometric knee extensor muscle strength using HHD could be predicted by formula = 0.1041xMAS.Conclusions: Isometric knee extensor muscle strength measured using HHD strongly correlates with that of using MAS with 60o knee flexion in sitting position and can be predicted from measurement values of MAS. The formula is only suitable for females.Keywords: Hand-held dynamometer, knee extensor, prediction formula, sphygmomanometer DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v6n1.1103
