Impact of elapsed time between first symptoms and diagnosis of celiac disease on psycho-physical functioning and social life of children and adolescents

By Biljana Stojanović-Jovanović, Stevan Jovanović, Biljana Vuletić

Introduction. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease resulting from an inadequate immune response to gluten in genetically predisposed individuals as a result of consuming gluten and other related proteins present in wheat, rye, barley and oats. The only cure for this specific disease is a strict, carefully controlled and lifelong gluten-free diet. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether the elapsed time between the onset of the first symptoms and the diagnosis of celiac disease affected the psycho-physical functioning and social life of children and adolescents.

Methods. The study involved 116 respondents (39 of them were males), aged 8-18 years, who were diagnosed with celiac disease. The Documentation Sheet and the Celiac-Specific Pediatric Health-Related Instrument (CDPQOL), measuring the psycho-physical functioning and social life, were used in the study.

Results. 50% of subjects, aged ≤ 2 years, were diagnosed with celiac disease. 48.28% of them were diagnosed with the disease within three months after the symptom onset. In respondents with celiac disease, aged 8-12 years, there was no statistically significant difference between the psycho-physical functioning and social life and the elapsed time between the first symptoms and the established diagnosis. In subjects aged 13-18 years, using CDPQOL, a statistically significant difference was found in the following domains: school functioning, going out and social events, self-confidence. Furthermore, there was a statistically significant difference between total CDPQOL score and the elapsed time between the first symptoms and the established diagnosis.

Conclusion. The elapsed time between the first symptoms and the established diagnosis significantly affects the psycho-physical functioning and social life of subjects aged 13-18 years, but it does not affect the psycho-physical functioning and social life of the younger respondents. This is to confirm the importance of early diagnosis and treatment initiation.

Dijagnostika fokalnih promjena u jetri

By Zoran Terzić, Branko Brmbolić, Miloš Korać, Boban Đorđević, Dragica Terzić, Bogdanka Andrić, Siniša Ristić

Uvod. Patološki procesi u jetri mogu biti difuznog karaktera (zapaljenski,metaboličke bolesti, hematološke bolesti, toksične bolesti) i fokalne (zapaljenske,parazitarne i tumorske). Cilj rada je prikaz fokalnih promjena u jetrinomparenhimu nakon ultrazvučne, laparaskopske i patohistološke dijagnostike.Metode. Retrospektivno-prospektivnim ispitivanjem je obuhvaćeno 147punoljetnih pacijenata oba pola. Fokalne promjene jetrinog tkiva su sagledaneultrazvučnom, laparoskopskom i patohistološkom dijagnostikom.Rezultati. Osnovne karakteristike ispitanika: muškaraca 71 i žena 76 sanajvećim brojem pacijenata (102 - 70%) životne dobi između 40 i 70 godina,sa ravnomjernom distribucijom za svakih deset godina starosti. Međutim,neobično je veliki broj pacijenata ženskog pola registrovan u četvrtoj decenijiživota, čak 14 (9,5%) od ukupnog broja ispitanika, odnosno 18% odispitanika ženskog pola. Metastaze čine 104 (71%) svih fokalnih lezija jetre.U većini slučajeva radilo se o metastazama karcinoma dojke. Iako najčešćeimaju tipičnu ultrazvučnu prezentaciju, metastaze u jetri mogu da daju širokspektar različitih ultrazvučnih slikaZaključak. Najčešće fokalne promjene u jetri su metastaze adenokarcinoma.Samo 3 (2%) fokalne promjene dijagnostikovane ultrazvukom nisu potvrđenekao fokalne laparoskopskom tehnikom i patohistološkom analizom tkiva jetre.

The knowledge of nurses about prevention of infections caused by the bacteria Clostridium difficile

By Ivana Miljković, Amajla Topuz

Introduction. Clostridium difficile is the leading cause of nosocomial diarrhea, associated with the use of antibiotics. The most common ways of transmitting the infection in hospitals are contaminated surfaces of the premises and the hands of medical staff. Methods. The study involved 68 nurses/technicians employed at the University Hospital Foca in the departments of surgery and internal medicine. As a research instrument, we used a specially designed questionnaire, created by the authors for the purpose of this research. Results. The research showed that 61.8% of respondents knew that hand washing with warm water and soap was considered the most effective prevention of the spread of infections, and 55.88% meant that they used chlorine-based preparations and hydrogen peroxide as the only effective disinfectant. Nurses with a work experience of less than 5 years showed better knowledge than other groups. Conclusion. The knowledge of nurses about the prevention of C. difficile infection is not at a satisfactory level, which indicates the growing need for education of nurses.

Importance of documentation in nursing practice

By Amajla Topuz, Ivana Miljković

Nursing is an established discipline that helps people in having a productive and healthy life as well as in coping with health problems in the best possible way using established skills. The application of nursing interventions and measures based on the analysis and assessment of patient needs, problems and difficulties observed, and his or her abilities as well as on a continuous assessment and verification of the results obtained is carried out by means of the healthcare process. The rational and logical basis for defining and solving patient's problems is within the scope of healthcare process. Professional networking as well as the networking of all hierarchical structures is a priority where the filing of nursing documentation in a centralized information system is concerned. Nursing documentation is used to establish effective communication between non-medical and medical staff, between nurses and, between families, as well as to establish effective communication with the healthcare system during the overall patient care process.
