|Title||:||Fibromyalgia, Modified Symptoms And Solution Paradigm (Medical Case)|
|Authors||:||Dr. Darina Mineva|
Abstract: The diagnostic process in medical practice encounters difficulties in connection with the so-called modified symptoms. Often the disease is not properly diagnosed and symptomatic treatment is prescribed. With this scientific work, an attempt has been made to create a rule for the diagnosis of the rarely diagnosed disease "Fibromyalgia". A case of a sixty-four-year-old patient with a disc herniation-like pain syndrome was examined. Clinical thinking is represented by a general rule / paradigm composed of four elements: a description of the specifics of each symptom; aspects of the diagnosis: what is and what is not; the symptoms forming a whole; analysis of small deviations and nuances - a way of accurate diagnosis. The paradigm was developed for the disease "Fibromyalgia", referring specifically to the observed case.
Keywords: - fibromyalgia, paradigm, depression, pain, modified symptoms.

Abstract: Urinary catheterization is one of the most common procedures performed in hospitals especially in intensive care units. The urinary catheter is considered as a single biggest risk factor for acquired urinary tract infections (UTIs), and more than 80% of all acquired UTIs are attributable to catheter use..Thus the present Study was planned to assess the nurses compliance towards catheter care bundle to prevent CAUTI among Patients Admitted in Tertiary Care Hospital, Bathinda (Punjab) Objectives 1. To assess the nurses compliance towards catheter care bundle regarding prevention of CAUTI among patients.2.To find out the association between nurses compliance towards catheter care bundle for prevention of CAUTI among patients with their socio demographic variables. Descriptive survey design was used.....

Abstract: Introduction: For the practice of a wind instrument, respiratory control is the technical skill with the greatest impact on sound production. The growing number of published articles reflects the lack of consensus about this theme. Hence the pertinence of this study, whose general goal is to assess the impact of the practice of a wind instrument on the respiratory function of musicians.
Methodology: A formulary was used to data collection. Were performed 51 forced spirometries to non-smokers musicians, older than 18 years and without diagnosed respiratory pathologies. Subsequently, 23 individuals performed the whole-body plethysmography.......

Abstract: Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) is a frequent complication of hospitalization. HAI is defined as an infection whose development is favoured by a hospital environment, such as one acquired by a patient during a hospital visit1. Hospital-acquired infections, also known as healthcare-associated infections, are nosocomial acquired infections that are typically not present. These infections are usually acquired after hospitalization and manifest 48 hours after admission to the hospital2.
This issue been recognized for more than a century as a critical problem affecting the quality of health care and principal source of adverse outcomes. The pattern of organism causing infections varies widely from one country to another as well as from one hospital....

Abstract:The prevalence of central obesity in Indonesia based on the results of Basic Health Research (Riskesdas) in people aged ≥ 15 years has always shown an increase over time. The increase in obesity is closely related to non-communicable diseases so that it has an impact on the morbidity and mortality rates of obesity which are also getting higher. The cause of increasing central obesity is due to lifestyle changes, such as high alcohol consumption, smoking behavior, and low physical activity. The design of this research was observational analytic with cross sectional research method. The study was conducted using secondary data from Riskesdas 2018 data analysis and data processing was carried out at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Lampung....
