Role of community nurses in the prevention of tuberculosis in the Tshwane Health District of Gauteng

Curationis , 2012,
Abstract: The objectives of this study were to identify the role of community nurses in the prevention of tuberculosis (TB) and to identify problems experienced by them when fulfilling this role in the Tshwane Health District of Gauteng. A non-experimental, descriptive, quantitative research design method was used to collect data from community nurses. The sample included 59 registered nurses who voluntarily agreed to participate in the study. A questionnaire was used to collect data and quantitative data analysis methods were employed. Various opinions and ideas on the role of community nurses in the prevention of TB and the problems experienced were identified. Based on the results of this research, measures to protect community nurses from contracting TB whilst on duty should be a priority. Government should support TB programmes by providing money to non-governmental organisations and direct observed treatment short course (DOTS) supporters to make follow-up visits to patients possible, thus reducing the number of defaulters. Stringent measures should be taken at all border points to ensure that foreigners are screened for TB, multidrug-resistant TB and extensively drugresistant TB. This study was limited to community nurses in the Tshwane Health District of Gauteng who were registered with the South African Nursing Council (SANC) and therefore this study could not be generalised to registered nurses in the hospital setting or even to clinics in the rest of South Africa.
PPAR and Local Renin-Angiotensin Systems in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases Associated with Obesity: A Unifying Hypothesis  [PDF]
Gustavo Márquez-Salom, Javier Diez
Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2013.35A001

Recent research has revealed roles for the PPAR family of transcription factors in the modulation of the RAAS. In particular, PPARα and PPARγ have been shown to control the transcription of renin in several tissues and influence the activity of local renin-angiotensin-systems coupling vascular and metabolic functions and contributing to their modulation. In this conceptual framework, PPAR and local RAS participate in the pathophysiology of blood pressure elevation, as well as in organ and tissue damage, and disturbances of glucose and lipid metabolism associated with cardiovascular diseases and obesity. The understanding of these mechanisms here discussed and their adequate pharmacological manipulation enlarge the potential to intervene pathological processes that connect the obesity with associate diseases and could alert about the adverse effects of some PPAR agonists on involved organs.

CFSP and the Theories of European Integration: the Contributions of the “New Intergovernmentalisms”
Mónica Salomón
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 1999,
Abstract: The lack of connection between the analysis of the so-called “European foreign policy” and the theories of European integration has had very negative consequences. European Political Cooperation (EPC) and Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP)’s studies have been developed in a “theoretical void” that has not contributed to theunderstanding of the phenomenon of foreign-policy coordination between European Union’s member states. The reasons for the estrangement lie mainly in the incapacity of the dominant supranational paradigm to explain the intergovernamental shift whichexperienced the EC in the mid-sixties. In fact, EPC is itself a product of the intergovernmental shift. But the situation has changed in this last decade. Integration theories are flourishing again. In particular, the contributions of a group of authors which can be classified as “new intergovernmentalists” (Keohane and Hoffmann, Moravcsik and Taylor) are promissing. They provide both a common framework of analysis for the intergovernmentalist EU’s pillars and its communitarian domains and some elements which help understand the specificities of the foreign policy coordination mechanism.

Standard Model thermodynamics across the electroweak crossover
M. Laine,M. Meyer
Physics , 2015, DOI: 10.1088/1475-7516/2015/07/035
Abstract: Even though the Standard Model with a Higgs mass mH = 125 GeV possesses no bulk phase transition, its thermodynamics still experiences a "soft point" at temperatures around T = 160 GeV, with a deviation from ideal gas thermodynamics. Such a deviation may have an effect on precision computations of weakly interacting dark matter relic abundances if their mass is in the few TeV range, or on leptogenesis scenarios operating in this temperature range. By making use of results from lattice simulations based on a dimensionally reduced effective field theory, we estimate the relevant thermodynamic functions across the crossover. The results are tabulated in a numerical form permitting for their insertion as a background equation of state into cosmological particle production/decoupling codes. We find that Higgs dynamics induces a non-trivial "structure" visible e.g. in the heat capacity, but that in general the largest radiative corrections originate from QCD effects, reducing the energy density by a couple of percent from the free value even at T > 160 GeV.
Hutchinson’s sign as a marker of ocular involvement in HIVpositive patients with herpes zoster ophthalmicus
M van Dyk, D Meyer Meyer
South African Medical Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Background. A positive Hutchinsonfs sign indicates an increased risk of ocular involvement in herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO). We examined the sensitivity of Hutchinsonfs sign as an indicator of ocular involvement in a consecutive series of patients presenting with HZO. Methods. We conducted a descriptive observational prospective study of patients .18 years old presenting with HZO and consenting to pre- and post-test counselling and HIV and CD4 testing. A full ophthalmological examination focused on the extent of ocular involvement, and the presence of Hutchinsonfs sign was confirmed by two clinicians. Results. Thirty-three patients were enrolled; 29 were HIV positive, of whom 18 (62%) had not been diagnosed with HIV prior to enrolment. Of the 29 HIV-positive patients, 21 (72%) were Hutchinsonfs sign positive (HSP), all of whom had intra-ocular involvement (95% confidence interval 88 - 100%) Of the 8 HIV-positive, Hutchinsonfs sign-negative (HSN) patients, 4 did and 4 did not display intra-ocular involvement. Neither the mean CD4 count nor the average age in the HSP group differed significantly from the HSN group. Conclusion. We confirmed that a Hutchinsonfs sign- and HIVpositive patient with HZO has a very high positive predictive value for intra-ocular involvement. Neither age nor CD4 count had predictive value for ocular involvement. Young adults presenting with HZO should be suspected of having HIV, and HIV-positive patients with HZO but HSN may still have ocular involvement. All patients with HZO should be seen by an ophthalmologist.

Abstract: "He who is master of the sea is master of world trade. And he who is master of world trade is master of the riches of the earth and of the earth itself" Sir Walter Raleigh, quoted by the former Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy, Admiral S.G. Gorshkov. Introduction Sir Walter Raleigh, the famous English adventurer, died three hundred and seventy years ago, but his words are just as valid today, as any television news programme on convoy operations in the Persian Gulf will show. Warships from the USA, UK, France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands have all been involved in patrols or minesweeping operations in the area to minimize threats to their oil supplies coming from the Gulf, the main export route of nine Middle Eastern countries possessing more than half of the world's proven oil reserves.

Abstract: To understand the significance of air weapons and their effectiveness, you have to look at the situation at the close of the October Warand extrapolate ... TheSAMS were totally destroyed and the air force could do whatever it wanted against the ground.
