Nutritional Knowledge and Practices, Lifestyle Characteristics and Anthropometric Status of Turks and Caicos Islands Elementary School Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.111
Pages: 
29–36
Synopsis: 
Assessment of nutritional status and knowledge of 297 elementary school children in Turks and Caicos Islands revealed that most (70%) knew non-communicable diseases were related to diet and obesity. However, levels of physical activity and fruit and vegetable consumption were low, while overweight/obesity level was high (41%).

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To assess nutritional status, knowledge, practices and lifestyle characteristics of Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) primary school children.

Subjects and Methods: Sociodemographic, nutrition knowledge and lifestyle information were collected via an interviewer-assisted questionnaire from grade 5 to 6 participants in a cross-sectional survey; anthropometrics were collected by trained interviewers.

Blunt Trauma in Paediatric Patients – Experience from a Small Centre

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.069
Pages: 
126–30
Synopsis: 
This study sought to determine the incidence, aetiology, grades of abdominal organ injuries, diagnosis, management and outcome of blunt abdominal trauma in a paediatric population. Conservative treatment was appropriate for all stable patients with blunt abdominal trauma regardless of organ injury grade. The choice of non-operative treatment should be based predominantly on physiological response.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Despite great prevention efforts, blunt abdominal trauma still remains a leading cause of injury, especially in the paediatric population. Abdominal trauma is the main culprit of serious children’s injury and the most common area of initially missed diagnosis with a fatal outcome.

Systems for Paediatric Sepsis: A Global Survey

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.326
Pages: 
703–10
Synopsis: 
Even among centres with no significant resource constraints and advanced medical systems, significant deficits in sepsis care exist. Early recognition and management remain a key issue and may be addressed through improved triage, augmented support for referring centres and public awareness.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To evaluate the resources available for early diagnosis and treatment of paediatric sepsis at hospitals in developing and developed countries.

Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura Associated with Hepatitis A Infection in a Five-year Old Boy: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.176
Pages: 
536–8
ABSTRACT
 
Acute hepatitis A infection is usually a self-limiting disease and mostly asymptomatic in children younger than six years old. Extrahepatic autoimmune manifestations such as immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) have been reported rarely in children with acute hepatitis A infection. We report herein a paediatric case with ITP which is due to hepatitis A virus infection.

Observer Variability in Sonographic Measurement of Kidney Sizes among Children in Benin-City, Nigeria

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.262
Synopsis: 
In this prospective cross-sectional study, ultrasonography was used to repeatedly measure kidney sizes by different observers in order to determine the level of inconsistency within and between replicate measurements of kidney size by a single and different observers. Replicate sonographic measurements by a single observer are more consistent, and therefore, more reliable than replicate measurements by different observers.
ABSTRACT
 
Aim: To assess the level of inconsistency in replicating sonographic kidney size measurements in a population of healthy Nigerian children.

A Rare Cause of Rhabdomyolysis from Brucella: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.261
ABSTRACT
 
Rhabdomyolysis is caused by myocyte necrosis, which results in the release of muscular cell contents into the circulation and extracellular fluid. We present a case of rhabdomyolysis due to brucella infection without any complications. Following the treatment applied for brucella, creatinine kinase level was significantly reduced. Rhabdomyolysis associated with brucella is rare in children.
