Abstract : Benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) is classified as a carcinogenic compound on humans and animals. The presence of metabolite 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP) in the urine is commonly used as a biomarker to BaP. We measured the BaP concentration from schools using sorbent tubes with a charcoal filter and analyze it using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with a fluorescence detector. To evaluate and measure the exposure risk of benzo(a)pyrene to primary school children in West Jakarta, Indonesia. We used a cross-sectional study design with two different methods of Public Health Assessment, i.e., environmental health risk assessment and environmental health epidemiology. We used 84 students as our sample, which were determined using probability proportional to size; and picked using the purposive sampling method. The risk of carcinogenic exposure of BaP in three study locations was considered under the safety limit (i.e., realtime RQ < 1). The mean BaP concentration was the highest at school number 2 with a value of 0.0092 mg/m3. The mean 1-OHP concentration extracted from urine samples was also the highest at school number 2 with the majority being fourth-grade students. The BaP exposure inside the classroom was positively related to the 1-OHP concentration in the students’ urine (p=0.001).

Abstract : We present a case of an 80-year-old Malay lady with underlying diabetes and hypertension who presented with right-sided facial swelling at the angle of the mandible for about 3 years duration. Initially the swelling was small and painless however currently had been associated with pain and progressively increase in size. The patient also noted drooping of the right lower lip. However, patient denies dysphagia or odynophagia and association with weight loss or appetite. On examination, revealed right sided facial nerve palsy with well-defined mass at the angle of mandible. No neck nodes palpable and other ENT examinations were unremarkable. FNAC was reported as atypical cells seen suspicious of malignancy. CT scan of head and neck was reported as parotid malignancy with likelihood of facial nerve involvement. The patient was subjected for radical right total parotidectomy and selective neck dissection with pectoralis major for tissue reconstruction.

Abstract : Children flatfoot is a frequent deformity in which there is a reduction in the medial longitudinal arch. Previous studies afford useful information about the prompt effects of foot insoles (FI). It is not clear if these effects long-lasting or might change over a longer period. The aim of this study was to investigate if wearing FI for a long time might change gait variables in children with flexible flat feet (FFF). Thirty Female children (9-13 years) with asymptomatic bilateral FFF were selected according to their arch index. Vicon 3D Gait analysis was used to calculate the kinetic variables (ankle, knee, and hip peak moments) during the gait cycle before and after 6 and 12- months period of wearing the FI. A significant decrease was achieved in terms of foot eversion and forefoot, knee and hip abduction and hip flexion peak moments after 6-months of wearing the FI. After 12-months, the previous parameters continued to decrease, in addition to significant increases were found in ankle dorsiflexion and forefoot adduction peak moments, and significant decreases were obtained in foot plantar-flexion and inversion, knee flexion, extension, and internal rotation and hip extension and internal rotation moments. It could be concluded that FI is feasible and effective in improving the lower limb kinetic parameters by achieving permanent changes in the young females with FFF when applied for successive 12 months.

Abstract : The purpose of this research is to investigate the impact of personality traits and emotional intelligence on school success. The study was conducted among 260 students (58 men and 202 women) in the fourth class of two high schools in the southern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. A Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PFQue) was used to determine personality traits and a Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue) was used to measure emotional intelligence. Anxiety and self-sufficiency were found to be the most common traits among students. Tough-mindedness was significantly more evident in the group of students with an average grade of “excellent” in comparison to the students with an average grade of “good”. Sensitivity and tension were significantly more present among the students with an average grade of “good” in comparison to the students with an average grade of “excellent”. Tough-mindedness positively correlated, whilst anxiety, liveliness, sensitivity, apprehension, openness to change and tension negatively correlated with school success. There was no significant difference in emotional intelligence between the groups of students. According to our results, certain personality traits may have a significant influence, whilst the level of emotional intelligence has no impact on school success.

Abstract : Under-treatment of pain in children is still a problematic area for hospitalized children in Indonesia. In-effective pain management in children may give negative impacts on the children and contributes to a reduction in the quality of life of children. Managing children’s pain requires nurses to be prepared with adequate knowledge and proper attitudes. Nursing students are the face of future nursing and must be highly knowledgeable about pain and its management. This research aim was to examine the knowledge and attitudes regarding pediatric pain management among undergraduate nursing students. Descriptive cross-sectional research design was employed. Total sampling was used which provided 98 students from the population of students in the nursing profession program. Data was collected using the Pediatric Nurses Knowledge and Attitude Survey (PNKAS). Results of the study showed that 86 respondents (87.8%) had poor knowledge. The students of the nursing profession program were weak in their knowledge of pain assessment and pharmacology treatment. Whereas in terms of the attitude of pain management, 52 % of the students displayed inappropriate attitude. The study concluded that nursing students in Indonesia had more insufficient knowledge and an unsupportive attitude regarding pain management compared with other nursing students around the world. Considering the important role of nurses in managing children’s pain, there is a need of close clinical supervision, additional training for clinical nursing educator and the curriculum of bachelor nursing program in Indonesia should be evaluated to enrich more about pain assessment and its management.
