Abstract : Adolescence is a special age with great physical changes; it is also an important period for body image and self-concept development. The association between obesity and psychological health among adolescents has been researched extensively, but the epidemiologic results are inconsistent. The aim of this study is to evaluate how the body image perception is contributing to depressive symptoms amongst Bahraini adolescents. A cross sectional study conducted among 460 adolescent aged 10-19 years attending four primary health care centers representing the four governorates of Bahrain during February and March 2019. Self-filled questionnaire was given to adolescents after identifying them in the reception. Demographic, body image and mental health data were included. A total of 460 adolescents participated in the study, of which 217 (47.2%) were males and 243 (52.7%) were females. Although most of the adolescents (47.8%) described their weight as “right” weight, but significantly higher proportion of females (45.7%) think that they are overweight in comparison to males (30%). Females reported feeling sad or depressed (37.4%) significantly more than males (23%). Reporting depression was much higher among overweight females (54.1%) in comparison to overweight males (23.1%) The results of this study indicated that depressive symptoms among Bahraini adolescents are associated with perceived body image in both genders, but it is significantly more among females..

Abstract : The number of the elderly population in Yogyakarta Province, Indonesia, is higher compare to other cities in Indonesia. Therefore, supports from various sectors are required, including supports from the government, private sector, and community to improve the quality of life among elderly. An Elderly School Integration in Bina Keluarga Lansia (ESI-BKL) is one of the innovative interventions that have a strategic role in achieving seven dimensions of robust elderly. Respondents in this study are pre-elderly and elderly who are involved in ESI-BKL program for one year. The study design was a quasi-experimental study without control group design. The sampling technique in this study was purposive sampling. Statistical analysis performed in this study was the Wilcoxon Signed-rank test. The results of the study show there are significant differences in the intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental, vocational, and emotional dimensions before and after following ESI-BKL (p-value < 0.05). Moreover, there are no differences in the physical dimension before and after following the ESI-BKL (p-value=0.377). However, the robustness of the elderly can be measured through the indicators of 7-dimension of robust elderly. The measurement results show very significant differences in 5 dimensions, namely intellectual, social, spiritual, environmental, and emotional dimensions. In contrast, there are no significant differences in Physical and Vocational Dimensions..

Abstract : Aging is a complex process and make progressive loss of functional capacity of organ such as skin. Trans epidermal water loss represent changes in skin permeability which happen in aging. There is an imbalance of immune system in aging. It can cause condition called inflammaging. Proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-6 and TNF-α were elevated in skin aging. Purpose: This study aims to find correlation between TEWL and proinflammatory cytokines in non-aging and aging Methods: This research is an analytic observational study with cross sectional design. The IL-6 and TNF-α level was measured by using sandwich ELISA technique. TEWL was measured by Tewa meter. Results: The mean value of IL-6 and TNF-α in both non-aging and aging group showed no significantly difference. The TEWL in aging and non-aging group showed no statistically significant difference with and IL-6 and TNF-α. Conclusion: There was no significant relationship between TEWL and proinflammatory cytokines in non-aging and aging group..

Abstract : A 34-year-old man was referred to the oncology surgeons at dr. Kariadi General Hospital with a left-sided inguinal lump 3 months ago, initially 1,5x1x1.5 after 3 days became 3.5x3x2.5 cm, with tenderness, reddish colour around the lump. Then the patient came to the general surgeon at the district hospital, he was examined and performed a surgical removal and anatomic pathology examination which resulted metastasic melanoma. The patient had a history of tattoos in the upper and lower extremities since 10 years ago. After immunohistochemically evaluation at dr. Kariadi General Hospital, the result showing that it was reactive Para cortical hyperplasia expressed by dermatopathic lymphadenitis which was caused by tattoo pigmentation. After the lump removal from the inguinal region by excision surgeon at district hospital, the patient had no other complaints and had normal activities. Since the result of immunohistochemically evaluation was not metastatic melanoma, the patient was given antibiotics and anti- inflammatory..

Abstract : The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (JNC 7) divides hypertensive crisis into hypertensive emergency and hypertensive urgency. Hypertensive urgency is a severe elevation in blood pressure without progressive target organ damage. The drugs, labetalol and hydralazine are usually administered for hypertensive urgency in emergency room, but a head to head comparison on efficacy of each drug has not been reported so far. In this study, efficacy of labetalol and hydralazine compared along with requirement of second dose of each drug in patients presenting to emergency room with hypertensive urgency. A prospective observational study was conducted in 100 patients, presented with hypertensive urgency in emergency room during the time period from August 2019 to July 2020, after fulfilling both inclusion and exclusion criteria. Efficacy of both drugs were compared by measuring systolic blood pressure, that is one hour after administering each drug. Percentage of decrease in systolic BP after administering labetalol was 18.98± 9.55% and that of hydralazine was 21.32± 8.08% (P value=0.039). Hence this study revealed that hydralazine is more efficacious than labetalol in systolic BP reduction. Second dose required for 15(28.3%) patients in labetalol group and that of hydralazine was only 10(21.3%) (P value=0.418) The result of the study shows that, both hydralazine and labetalol are effective (JNC-7 guidelines) and safe in hypertensive urgency. But on comparison, it is found that hydralazine is having an edge over labetalol in treating hypertensive urgency..
