Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (1/6626)OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention. (+info)
Randomised controlled trial of effect of feedback on general practitioners' prescribing in Australia. (2/6626)OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect on general practitioners' prescribing of feedback on their levels of prescribing. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: General practice in rural Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 2440 full time recognised general practitioners practising in non-urban areas. INTERVENTION: Two sets of graphical displays (6 months apart) of their prescribing rates for 2 years, relative to those of their peers, were posted to participants. Data were provided for five main drug groups and were accompanied by educational newsletters. The control group received no information on their prescribing. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prescribing rates in the intervention and control groups for the five main drug groups, total prescribing and potential substitute prescribing and ordering before and after the interventions. RESULTS: The intervention and control groups had similar baseline characteristics (age, sex, patient mix, practices). Median prescribing rates for the two groups were almost identical before and after the interventions. Any changes in prescribing observed in the intervention group were also seen in the control group. There was no evidence that feedback reduced the variability in prescribing nor did it differentially affect the very high or very low prescribers. CONCLUSIONS: The form of feedback evaluated here-mailed, unsolicited, centralised, government sponsored, and based on aggregate data-had no impact on the prescribing levels of general practitioners.

Preliminary report: symptoms associated with mobile phone use. (3/6626)Mobile phone use is ubiquitous, although the alleged health effects of low level radio-frequency radiation (RFR) used in transmission are contentious. Following isolated reports of headache-like symptoms arising in some users, a survey has been conducted to characterize the symptoms sometimes associated with mobile phone usage. A notice of interest in cases was placed in a major medical journal and this was publicized by the media. Respondents were interviewed by telephone using a structured questionnaire. Forty respondents from diverse occupations described unpleasant sensations such as a burning feeling or a dull ache mainly occurring in the temporal, occipital or auricular areas. The symptoms often began minutes after beginning a call, but could come on later during the day. The symptoms usually ceased within an hour after the call, but could last until evening. Symptoms did not occur when using an ordinary handset, and were different from ordinary headaches. There were several reports suggestive of intra-cranial effects. Three respondents reported local symptoms associated with wearing their mobile phone on their belts. There was one cluster of cases in a workplace. Seventy-five per cent of cases were associated with digital mobile phones. Most of the respondents obtained relief by altering their patterns of telephone usage or type of phone. Cranial and other diverse symptoms may arise associated with mobile phone usage. Physicians and users alike should be alert to this. Further work is needed to determine the range of effects, their mechanism and the possible implications for safety limits of RFR. (+info)
Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events. (4/6626)BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events. (+info)
Changing epidemiology of hepatitis A in the 1990s in Sydney, Australia. (5/6626)Surveillance of hepatitis A in residents of Eastern Sydney Health Area identified substantial epidemics in homosexual males in 1991-2 with a peak rate of 520 per 100,000 recorded in males aged 25-29 years, and again in 1995-6, with a peak rate of 405 per 100,000 per year in males aged 30-34 years. During 1994-5 an epidemic was detected among disadvantaged youth associated with injecting drug use; peak rates of 200 per 100,000 per year were reported in males aged 25-29 years and of 64 per 100,000 per year among females aged 20-24 years. The epidemiology of hepatitis A in these inner suburbs of Sydney is characterized by very few childhood cases and recurrent epidemics among homosexual men. Identified risk groups need to be targeted with appropriate messages regarding the importance of hygiene and vaccination in preventing hepatitis A. However, poor access to health services among disadvantaged youth and a constant influx of young homosexual males into these inner suburbs present major challenges to hepatitis A control. (+info)
A comparative analysis of surveyors from six hospital accreditation programmes and a consideration of the related management issues. (6/6626)PURPOSE: To gather data on how accreditors manage surveyors, to compare these data and to offer them to the accreditors for improvement and to the scientific community for knowledge of the accreditation process and reinforcement of the credibility of these processes. DATA SOURCE: The data were gathered with the aid of a questionnaire sent to all accreditors participating in the study. RESULTS: An important finding in this comparative study is the different contractual relationships that exist between the accreditors and their surveyors. CONCLUSION: Surveyors around the world share many common features in terms of careers, training, work history and expectations. These similarities probably arise from the objectives of the accreditors who try to provide a developmental process to their clients rather than an 'inspection'. (+info)
Biodiversity of Lactococcus garvieae strains isolated from fish in Europe, Asia, and Australia. (7/6626)Lactococcus garvieae (junior synonym, Enterococcus seriolicida) is a major pathogen of fish, producing fatal septicemia among fish species living in very diverse environments. The phenotypic traits of L. garvieae strains collected from three different continents (Asia, Europe, and Australia) indicated phenotypic heterogeneity. On the basis of the acidification of D-tagatose and sucrose, three biotypes were defined. DNA relatedness values and a specific PCR assay showed that all the biotypes belonged to the same genospecies, L. garvieae. All of the L. garvieae strains were serotyped as Lancefield group N. Ribotyping proved that one clone was found both in Japan, where it probably originated, and in Italy, where it was probably imported. PCR of environmental samples did not reveal the source of the contamination of the fish in Italy. Specific clones (ribotypes) were found in outbreaks in Spain and in Italy. The L. garvieae reference strain, isolated in the United Kingdom from a cow, belonged to a unique ribotype. L. garvieae is a rising zoonotic agent. The biotyping scheme, the ribotyping analysis, and the PCR assay described in this work allowed the proper identification of L. garvieae and the description of the origin and of the source of contamination of strains involved in outbreaks or in sporadic cases.

Mutations in the nebulin gene associated with autosomal recessive nemaline myopathy. (8/6626)The congenital nemaline myopathies are rare hereditary muscle disorders characterized by the presence in the muscle fibers of nemaline bodies consisting of proteins derived from the Z disc and thin filament. In a single large Australian family with an autosomal dominant form of nemaline myopathy, the disease is caused by a mutation in the alpha-tropomyosin gene TPM3. The typical form of nemaline myopathy is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, the locus of which we previously assigned to chromosome 2q21.2-q22. We show here that mutations in the nebulin gene located within this region are associated with the disease. The nebulin protein is a giant protein found in the thin filaments of striated muscle. A variety of nebulin isoforms are thought to contribute to the molecular diversity of Z discs. We have studied the 3' end of the 20. 8-kb cDNA encoding the Z disc part of the 800-kDa protein and describe six disease-associated mutations in patients from five families of different ethnic origins. In two families with consanguineous parents, the patients were homozygous for point mutations. In one family with nonconsanguineous parents, the affected siblings were compound heterozygotes for two different mutations, and in two further families with one detected mutation each, haplotypes are compatible with compound heterozygosity. Immunofluorescence studies with antibodies specific to the C-terminal region of nebulin indicate that the mutations may cause protein truncation possibly associated with loss of fiber-type diversity, which may be relevant to disease pathogenesis.

In the medical field, "Australia" typically refers to the country located in the southern hemisphere, which is known for its unique flora and fauna, as well as its diverse population and healthcare system. Australia has a well-developed healthcare system that is publicly funded through a combination of taxes and government subsidies. The country has a universal healthcare system known as Medicare, which provides free or low-cost medical services to all citizens and permanent residents. In addition to its public healthcare system, Australia also has a thriving private healthcare sector, which includes hospitals, clinics, and specialist medical practices. Many Australians also have private health insurance, which can provide additional coverage for medical services that are not covered by Medicare. Overall, the medical field in Australia is highly advanced and well-regarded, with a strong emphasis on research, innovation, and patient-centered care.
In the medical field, Australasia generally refers to the region that includes Australia and New Zealand, as well as the surrounding islands and territories. This region is known for its unique flora and fauna, as well as its high rates of skin cancer due to the region's location in the southern hemisphere and its high levels of ultraviolet radiation. Medical research and treatment in Australasia often focuses on issues related to these unique characteristics of the region, as well as on broader health concerns such as infectious diseases, chronic conditions, and mental health.
Melioidosis is a serious infectious disease caused by the bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei. It is primarily found in tropical and subtropical regions, particularly in Southeast Asia and northern Australia. The disease can be transmitted to humans through contact with contaminated soil, water, or vegetation, or through the bites of infected insects such as mosquitoes and ticks. Symptoms of melioidosis can vary widely and may include fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, cough, and difficulty breathing. In severe cases, the disease can cause pneumonia, sepsis, and organ failure. Treatment typically involves antibiotics, although the specific antibiotics used may depend on the severity of the infection and the location of the affected organs. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove infected tissue. Melioidosis is a potentially life-threatening disease, and prompt diagnosis and treatment are crucial for a favorable outcome.
Burkholderia pseudomallei is a Gram-negative, aerobic, non-spore-forming bacterium that is the causative agent of melioidosis, a severe infectious disease that is found in Southeast Asia and northern Australia. The bacterium is commonly found in soil and water, particularly in areas with high rainfall and humidity. Melioidosis can cause a wide range of symptoms, including fever, chills, cough, and skin ulcers, and can be fatal if left untreated. Treatment typically involves antibiotics, such as ceftazidime or meropenem.
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is a federal territory of Australia located in the southeastern part of the country. It is home to the capital city of Canberra, which is also the seat of the federal government. In the medical field, the ACT is primarily known for its healthcare facilities and services, which are provided by the ACT Government and various private organizations. These facilities include hospitals, clinics, and specialist medical centers, which offer a range of medical and surgical services to residents of the ACT and visitors to the territory. The ACT also has a number of research institutions and universities that are involved in medical research and education.
In the medical field, the term "climate" typically refers to the environmental conditions in a particular location or region, including temperature, humidity, precipitation, and other factors that can affect human health. For example, a hot and humid climate may increase the risk of heat stroke and other heat-related illnesses, while a dry climate may increase the risk of dehydration and respiratory problems. In some cases, climate can also refer to the broader social and cultural context in which medical care is provided, including factors such as access to healthcare, cultural beliefs and practices, and economic conditions. For example, a study of climate and health in a particular region might examine how these factors interact to influence the prevalence of certain diseases or health outcomes.
In the medical field, cross-cultural comparison refers to the study of how different cultures perceive, understand, and approach health and illness. This involves comparing and contrasting the beliefs, practices, and attitudes towards health and illness across different cultural groups. Cross-cultural comparison is important in healthcare because it helps healthcare providers to understand the cultural context of their patients and to provide culturally sensitive care. It also helps to identify and address health disparities that may be related to cultural differences. For example, cross-cultural comparison may reveal that certain cultural groups have different beliefs about the causes of illness, different attitudes towards seeking medical care, and different practices for managing health and illness. This information can be used to develop culturally appropriate interventions and treatments that are more likely to be effective for patients from different cultural backgrounds.
In the medical field, "Asia" typically refers to the continent of Asia, which is home to a diverse range of cultures, languages, and ethnic groups. The region is known for its high population density, rapid economic growth, and unique healthcare systems. In the context of medicine, "Asia" may also refer to the prevalence of certain diseases or health conditions that are more common in this region, such as tuberculosis, hepatitis B, and certain types of cancer. Additionally, medical research and clinical trials may be conducted in Asia to study the effectiveness of new treatments or medications in this population. Overall, the term "Asia" in the medical field is used to describe the geographical region and its unique healthcare and epidemiological characteristics.
In the medical field, "Canada" typically refers to the country located in North America, bordered by the United States to the south and the Arctic Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, and Pacific Ocean to the north, east, and west, respectively. Canada is the second-largest country in the world by land area and has a diverse population of over 38 million people. In the context of healthcare, Canada has a publicly funded healthcare system known as Medicare, which provides universal coverage for medically necessary hospital and physician services to all Canadian citizens and permanent residents. However, there are also private healthcare options available in Canada, and some Canadians may choose to seek medical treatment outside of the country. Canada is also home to a number of world-renowned medical research institutions and universities, including the University of Toronto, McGill University, and the University of British Columbia, which conduct cutting-edge research in fields such as genetics, immunology, and neuroscience.
Alphavirus infections are a group of viral diseases caused by viruses belonging to the Alphavirus genus of the Togaviridae family. These viruses are primarily transmitted to humans through the bite of infected mosquitoes, although transmission can also occur through contact with infected animals or their bodily fluids. Symptoms of alphavirus infections can vary depending on the specific virus and the severity of the infection. Common symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, and rash. In severe cases, symptoms can progress to include encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), meningitis (inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord), and hemorrhagic fever (bleeding from various parts of the body). There are several different alphaviruses that can cause human infections, including Chikungunya virus, Eastern equine encephalitis virus, Western equine encephalitis virus, and Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus. Treatment for alphavirus infections typically involves supportive care to manage symptoms and prevent complications, such as dehydration and secondary infections. In some cases, antiviral medications may be used to help control the infection. Vaccines are available for some alphaviruses, but they are not widely available and are not always effective. Prevention of alphavirus infections involves avoiding mosquito bites through the use of insect repellent, wearing protective clothing, and eliminating standing water where mosquitoes can breed.
In the medical field, "age factors" refer to the effects of aging on the body and its various systems. As people age, their bodies undergo a variety of changes that can impact their health and well-being. These changes can include: 1. Decreased immune function: As people age, their immune system becomes less effective at fighting off infections and diseases. 2. Changes in metabolism: Aging can cause changes in the way the body processes food and uses energy, which can lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, and other metabolic disorders. 3. Cardiovascular changes: Aging can lead to changes in the heart and blood vessels, including increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. 4. Cognitive changes: Aging can affect memory, attention, and other cognitive functions, which can lead to conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease. 5. Joint and bone changes: Aging can cause changes in the joints and bones, including decreased bone density and increased risk of osteoporosis and arthritis. 6. Skin changes: Aging can cause changes in the skin, including wrinkles, age spots, and decreased elasticity. 7. Hormonal changes: Aging can cause changes in hormone levels, including decreased estrogen in women and decreased testosterone in men, which can lead to a variety of health issues. Overall, age factors play a significant role in the development of many health conditions and can impact a person's quality of life. It is important for individuals to be aware of these changes and to take steps to maintain their health and well-being as they age.
Henipavirus infections are a group of viral infections caused by henipaviruses, which are a type of paramyxovirus. These viruses are primarily found in bats and can be transmitted to humans through direct contact with infected animals or their bodily fluids, or through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects. There are two main types of henipaviruses: Hendra virus (HeV) and Nipah virus (NiV). Both viruses can cause severe respiratory illness, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), and in some cases, death. HeV is primarily found in Australia, while NiV is found in Southeast Asia. Symptoms of henipavirus infections can include fever, headache, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, and difficulty breathing. In severe cases, the viruses can cause brain swelling, seizures, and coma. There is no specific treatment for henipavirus infections, and supportive care is the mainstay of treatment. This may include antiviral medications, respiratory support, and management of symptoms. Vaccines are currently not available for henipavirus infections, but efforts are underway to develop them.
Allied Health Personnel (AHPs) are healthcare professionals who provide a wide range of services to support the delivery of healthcare. They are not medical doctors, but they play a critical role in the healthcare system by providing specialized services that complement the work of physicians and other healthcare providers. AHPs include professionals such as nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, pharmacists, medical laboratory technologists, radiologic technologists, respiratory therapists, and many others. They work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, schools, and private practices. AHPs are trained to provide specialized care in their respective fields, and they work closely with physicians and other healthcare providers to ensure that patients receive comprehensive and coordinated care. They may also be involved in research, education, and advocacy to advance the field of healthcare and improve patient outcomes.
DNA, Bacterial refers to the genetic material of bacteria, which is a type of single-celled microorganism that can be found in various environments, including soil, water, and the human body. Bacterial DNA is typically circular in shape and contains genes that encode for the proteins necessary for the bacteria to survive and reproduce. In the medical field, bacterial DNA is often studied as a means of identifying and diagnosing bacterial infections. Bacterial DNA can be extracted from samples such as blood, urine, or sputum and analyzed using techniques such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or DNA sequencing. This information can be used to identify the specific type of bacteria causing an infection and to determine the most effective treatment. Bacterial DNA can also be used in research to study the evolution and diversity of bacteria, as well as their interactions with other organisms and the environment. Additionally, bacterial DNA can be modified or manipulated to create genetically engineered bacteria with specific properties, such as the ability to produce certain drugs or to degrade pollutants.
Cross-sectional studies are a type of observational research design used in the medical field to examine the prevalence or distribution of a particular health outcome or risk factor in a population at a specific point in time. In a cross-sectional study, data is collected from a sample of individuals who are all measured at the same time, rather than following them over time. Cross-sectional studies are useful for identifying associations between health outcomes and risk factors, but they cannot establish causality. For example, a cross-sectional study may find that people who smoke are more likely to have lung cancer than non-smokers, but it cannot determine whether smoking causes lung cancer or if people with lung cancer are more likely to smoke. Cross-sectional studies are often used in public health research to estimate the prevalence of diseases or conditions in a population, to identify risk factors for certain health outcomes, and to compare the health status of different groups of people. They can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions or to identify potential risk factors for disease outbreaks.
