Birth and Emergency Planning: A Cross Sectional Survey of Postnatal Women at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra, Ghana
EA Udofia, SA Obed, BNL Calys-Tagoe, KP Nimo
African Journal of Reproductive Health , 2013,
Abstract: Birth and emergency planning encourages early decision making, helps overcome barriers to skilled maternity care and reduces preventable maternal and newborn deaths. A facility based postnatal survey of 483 childbearing women in Accra, Ghana determined birth and emergency planning steps, awareness of obstetric danger signs, reported maternal and newborn complications and birth outcome based on length of hospital stay. Supervised antenatal care and delivery were nearly universal. Overall, 62% had a birth plan, 74% had adequate knowledge of danger signs, while 64% and 37% reported maternal and newborn complications respectively. Accompaniment by a birth companion and saving money were considered the most useful planning steps. Knowledge of danger signs was associated with birth and emergency planning, and birth and emergency planning was associated with reported birth outcome. Birth and emergency planning as a critical component of antenatal care can influence birth outcomes and should be extended to all pregnant women. Résumé La planification des naissances et d'urgence encourage la prise de décision rapide, aide à surmonter les obstacles aux soins de maternité qualifiés et réduit les décès maternels et néonatals évitables. Une enquête post-natale qui a été basée sur l’établissement, et auprès des 483 femmes en age de procréer à Accra, au Ghana a déterminé les étapes de planification des naissances et d'urgence, la sensibilisation des signes de danger obstétrical, a rapporté des complications maternelles et néonatales et les résultats des naissances selon la durée du séjour à l'h pital. Les soins prénatals et l'accouchement surveillés étaient presque universels. Dans l'ensemble, 62% avaient un plan de naissance, 74% avaient une connaissance adéquate des signes de danger, tandis que 64% et 37% ont déclaré des complications maternelles et néonatales, respectivement. Le fait d’être accompagné par un compagnon de naissance et d’économiser de l'argent ont été considérés comme les étapes de planification les plus utiles. La connaissance des signes de danger a été associée à la naissance et à la planification d'urgence et la planification des naissances et d'urgence a été associée à des résultats des naissances déclarées. La planification des naissances et d'urgence comme un élément essentiel des soins prénatals peuvent influer sur les résultats de grossesses et devrait être mis a la portée de toutes les femmes enceintes.
The brain of the common vampire bat, Desmodus rotundus murinus (Wagner, 1840): a cytoarchitectural atlas
Bhatnagar, KP.;
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-69842008000300017
Abstract: the vampire bat, desmodus rotundus, is exceptionally agile and stealthy in nature. feeding at night on cattle blood, it is a known scourge carrying rabies. it is endowed with a very high neocortical volume among bats, acute olfactory capabilities and an accessory olfactory system. these characteristics have resulted into an impressive number of neuroanatomical investigations except a long due atlas on its brain. this study presents a cytoarchitectural atlas of the brain of the common vampire, desmodus rotundus murinus, in the frontal plane, serially between the olfactory bulb and the medulla oblongata. twenty six selected sections are presented, each separated by about 300 to 560 microns. the atlas figures show lugol fast blue-cresyl echt violet stained hemisections with their matching half in a labeled line drawing. about 595 discrete brain structures (some repeating) have been identified. this study is likely to provide the accurate localization of nuclear groups, whole structures, fiber tracts, and interconnections to facilitate future neuroanatomical and neurophysiological investigations on the vampire brain.
“Informing of the child’s understanding, influencing his heart, and directing its practice”: Jonathan Edwards on education
KP Minkema
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: This article examines the role of education in Jonathan Edwards’ life and legacy, both the education he received in early eighteenth-century New England and his activities as a teacher, among the other vocations he followed. In particular, the methods and principles he employed as a teacher, both of English and Indian children and young people, are distinctive. Next, the essay turns to some selected figures within the Edwardsean tradition to show pedagogical changes and continuities.

The Dynamics of Ethnicity in a Multicultural Society
KP Kurgatt
Journal of Language, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Africa , 2009,
Abstract: Ethnicity is sometimes one of the misunderstood cultural aspects of national heritage in Africa. The mere mention of the term ‘ethnicity' or ‘ethnic origin' is apt to elicit negative reactions, basically because only one facet is assumed, namely ‘ethnocentricity', or to use a less anodyne term, ‘tribalism'. Yet there are many other positive facets to ethnicity. For example, ethnicity can be claimed, rightly so, as one aspect of national identity, which enriches Africa's national heritage(s).This paper attempts to highlight these dynamics through analyzing how one community, namely, the Nandi, manifests its ethnicity its social construction of reality, the differences in intra-ethnic identities that separate them from their immediate ‘cousins' as well as other neighbors, namely, the Maasai and Luo and the Kenyan nation as a whole. It is hoped that the answers to the above will help us to positively harness ethnic diversity to create a multicultural society at ease with itself Journal of Language, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Africa Vol. 1 (2) 2009: pp. 90-98
Epidemiology and Antimicrobial Resistance of Enteric Pathogens in Dhahira Region, Oman
KP Prakash
Iranian Journal of Public Health , 2008,
Abstract: Background: We reviewed the monthly laboratory surveillance reports and hospital laboratory database in Dhahira region, Oman."nMethods: All patients for whom a stool sample examination request was made from 1st January 2002 to 31st December 2006 (5 years) were included in the study. Antimicrobial resistance pattern was studied for 2 years period. The cultures were done using standard laboratory procedures and antibiotic sensitivity by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method."nResults: Of the 85,210 stool samples examined, 18% showed positive result for one or more parasitic infection. The most common were E. hystolytica (7.1%), Giardia (7.9%) and E. coli (1.9%). A total of 7,830 cultures were done, among them 11.4% showed positive result for bacterial pathogen. The most common were Salmonella (5.8%) and Shigella species (4.4%). The antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of 265 bacterial pathogens were analyzed. Of the Shigella strains, 71.8% were resistant to trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole (SXT) and 39.4% to ampicillin and 32.4% to tetracycline. Salmonella and E. coli strains were frequently resistant to ampicillin (12.5% and 47.7%, respectively)"nConclusion: This study provides important information on the prevalence and antimicrobial resistance pattern of enteric pathogens in Dhahira region population. SXT, ampicillin, and tetracycline are the drugs commonly associated with resistance.

Early weight bearing compared with non-weight bearing functional mobilization after operative treatment of an ankle fracture
KP Paudel
Journal of College of Medical Sciences-Nepal , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/jcmsn.v7i1.5972
Abstract: Ankle fractures are the most common types of fractures treated in orthopaedics. When to begin ankle movement and weight bearing and the type of immobilizing devices to use post-operatively have had more intense clinical study than most other aspects of ankle fracture treatment. Aim of this study is to compare the results of two functional methods of post-operative treatment in internally fixed ankle fractures, i.e. one after early weight bearing using walking plaster and the other after non-weight bearing functional mobilization in the first six weeks following stable internal fixation. This is a prospective, non-randomized study. Between March 2004 and February 2006, thirty- five patients with displaced ankle fractures treated by internal fixation were assigned in a way that every alternate patient fell in different groups. Group A patients, 17, were managed with a below-knee walking plaster and group B patients, 18 with non-weight bearing mobilization with crutches. Five patients were lost in follow up and 30 were followed regularly as in the protocol. There was a temporary benefit in subjective evaluation (63 v 48 points, student t test. P=0.262), return to work (53.8 v 72.9 days, student t test, p=0.079) for those with a below-knee walking plaster at six week. There were minimal differences between the groups in the loss of dorsal range of movement (14.7 v 13.1 degree) or in the overall clinical results at the first follow up. But the differences disappeared in any evaluation after three months. Both treatments were considered to be satisfactory and the treatment choice depends on the ability to mobilize or weight bearing, the type of work and personal preference.

Surface sterilization and duration of seed storage influenced emergence and seedling quality of African breadfruit (Treculia africana Decne)
KP Baiyeri, BN Mbah
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2006,
Abstract: The effects of factorial combinations of four storage duration (in days after seed extraction) and surface sterilization with three dilution levels of sodium hypochlorite on seedling emergence and seedling quality of African breadfruit were studied. Storage duration significantly influenced days to seedling emergence, cumulative emergence and seedling quality traits. The effect of sterilization was, however, only significant on deformed seedlings and seedling foliage development. The combined effects of storage duration and sterilization were significant on all traits measured. Seedlings arising from previously sterilized seeds and planted within six days of extraction had fewer cases of deformity and had better foliage development. It was conclusive that after-ripening treatment was necessary to enhance the number of seedling emerging and quality of seedlings of African breadfruit. Sterilizing seeds with 10% dilution of NaOCl and air-drying under ambient tropical room condition for three to six days were found most appropriate, and thus, recommended.
