AIMS: To determine the prevalence, clinical characteristics, and outcome of hypoglycaemia on admission in children at a rural Kenyan district hospital. METHODS: Observational study of 3742 children (including 280 neonates) in Kilifi District Hospital, Kenya. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: hypoglycaemia (blood glucose |2.2 mmol/l) and hyperglycaemia (blood glucose |10.0 mmol/l). RESULTS: Non-neonates: the prevalence of hypoglycaemia on admission was 7.3%. Severe illness, malnutrition, last meal |12 hours ago, and a positive malaria slide were independently associated with hypoglycaemia. Overall, mortality in hypoglycaemic children was 20.2% compared to 3.8% in normoglycaemic children (p | 0.001). The brunt of mortality in hypoglycaemic children was borne by those who were severely ill or malnourished (31.8%) as opposed to those who were neither severely ill nor malnourished (9.0%). Neonates: 23.0% of neonates were hypoglycaemic on admission. Inability to breast feed and weight |2500 g were independently
The objective of this study was to identify the common bacteria isolated from patients, antibiotics used, sensitivity patterns, therapeutic procedures and cleaning protocols practised in Kenyatta National Hospital Intensive-Care Unit (ICU). Kenyatta National Hospital is a 1,800-bed referral and tertiary-care hospital which is also the Teaching University Hospital. The ICU has 20 beds. Two members of staff, a consultant and a senior nurse, did the study. Out of 195 patients admitted to the unit during the study period, 137 (70.3%) received antibiotics. The most frequently prescribed antibiotics included meropenem, ceftazidime, cefuroxime, piperacillin tazobactam, vancomycin, Augmentin and Flagyl. The most common bacteria isolated were Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Klebsiella, Citrobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus pneumoniae, Acinetobactor and Escherichia coli isolated from tracheal aspirate, urine, blood and pus ...
Background: Attitude and practice of health care professionals toward autopsy are important as they will give information regarding factors that contribute to the low rate of autopsies in children under five years.. Objective: To evaluate the attitude and practice of health care providers towards autopsies in children under five years.. Design: Cross-sectional hospital based descriptive survey.. Setting: General paediatrics wards and newborn unit at Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya.. Subjects: Health care providers working at the Kenyatta National Hospital paediatric wards and newborn unit.. Results: The study enrolled 95 health care providers. Majority (69.5%) of health care providers showed a positive attitude towards autopsy. Consultants and paeadiatric residents had a more positive attitude compared to interns (p, 0.001) and nurses (p=O.Oll). Clinical experience of, 15 years was associated with a more positive attitude. The main barriers to obtaining consent were lack of formal ...
Background An average of eight thousand five hundred elective surgeries are carried out annually at the Kenyatta National Hospital. Before any invasive procedure, an informed consent is obtained from the patient or the next of kin after pre-operative counselling has been carried out. This study aimed at determining whether patients were adequately informed on the key components of informed consent and establishing whether patients were satisfied with the process of obtaining informed consent for elective surgery at the Kenyatta National Hospital. Methodology The study was structured as a cross-sectional survey in which a questionnaire was used to collect data from randomly selected adult patients scheduled to undergo elective surgery. The questionnaire was administered by the principal investigator. Data was then be analyzed using SPSS Version 15. Results Majority of the patients were informed on the nature of surgery (97.2%) the reason for surgery (98.2%) and the anaesthesia to be administered ...
Data from Kenyatta National Hospital indicated that 50% of all diabetic patients attending the outpatient diabetic clinic recorded random blood glucose levels of over 10 mmol/1. These patients were thus predisposed to suffer from complications of the disorder. Lowering blood glucose levels towards normal decreases the risk of developing some chronic complications of diabetes. The purpose of this descriptive cross-sectional survey was therefore to investigate factors that influence glycaemic control levels of diabetic patients who attended the outpatient diabetic clinic at Kenyatta National Hospital. The variables considered in this study were therapies used; duration patients have suffered from diabetes, diet and weight status. Data were collected using three interview schedules. A hundred patients who had attended then clinic at least thrice prior to the study period, two Nutritionists and one Doctor from the diabetic clinic were surveyed. Data were analyzed using the statistical package of ...

BACKGROUND: The most important prognostic factor in head and neck cancer is the stage of the disease at presentation. Early cancer has an excellent prognosis following treatment. Unfortunately most patients present with late disease that requires radical treatment with considerable morbidity and mortality. Clinical experience at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) shows that most patients present with late disease. OBJECTIVE: To determine the causes of late presentation of head and neck cancer. DESIGN: A prospective descriptive study. SETTING: Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi. RESULTS: Forty four cases were seen among whom 34 were males and 10 were females. The age range was 20 to 90 years with a peak incidence between 50 and 60 years. Most of the patients had little or no education and the majority lived in the rural areas. Seventy one percent of the patients came from the Central and Eastern provinces. Tobacco and alcohol use were the most common risk habits. The larynx was the most common ...
Thirty one patients with carcinoma of penis were studied retrospectively at Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, over a 20-year period (1971-1990). The majority of patients presented late with symptomatology of over one year duration. 88% of patients with carcinoma were uncircumcised, while the three (12%) patients who were circumcised but developed carcinoma were all circumcised late in adolescence and adulthood, confirming that late circumcision may not protect one from developing penile carcinoma as reported in literature. These findings also indicate that carcinoma of penis may be rare in this locality but is still common among the uncircumcised African tribes ...

Author Summary In rural western Kenya, both malaria and intestinal infections with worms are common. Pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to infection with malaria, but the effect on pregnancy of intestinal infections with worms is not clear and may depend both on how heavy the worm infection is and on the type of worm. Additionally, it is not clear whether infections with worms may affect malaria infections. In this article, we begin to disentangle some of these issues. Intestinal infections with worms were diagnosed in three-quarters of 390 pregnant women in western Kenya who provided a stool sample. In these women, intestinal worm infections caused a modest decrease both in haemoglobin levels and indicators of nutritional status. Women in their second and third pregnancies who were diagnosed with one particular type of worm infection (Ascaris lumbricoides) were less likely to have malaria than other women in their second or third pregnancies who did not have this type of worm infection.

Our aim in this study was to identify simple indicators of meningitis that would be useful as a screening tool in practice rather than to produce a complex predictive model. This was a comprehensive study of a large number of pediatric hospital admissions. Our findings confirm the difficulties of early recognition of meningitis among hospital admissions in a malaria-endemic area. Only 1 in 24 admissions that met the simplified set of IMCI criteria for referral actually had meningitis. The low specificity of these criteria makes them impractical for screening for meningitis at the secondary level in our setting. The "gap" between the performance of clinicians in practice (30-42% sensitivity) at the secondary level in practice and the 98% reported sensitivity of the simplified IMCI referral criteria in the Gambian study initially seems surprising. However, we found that 96% of children who met the IMCI referral criteria did not have meningitis. These children therefore were much more likely to ...

A total of 105 patients were treated for ruptured gravid uteri at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya, over a five year period, January, 1984 to December, 1988. During the same period, there were 44,156 deliveries, giving an incidence of uterine rupture of 1:425 deliveries. Of these, records for 95 patients were traced and analysed, and the results are presented here. Majority (61.0%) of these patients were aged less than 30 years, and 62.1% were gravida 5 or less. 54 (56.8%) of them had rupture of scarred uteri, 33 (34.7%) had spontaneous rupture, while 8 (8.4%) had traumatic rupture. 56 (59.0%) ruptured while at the Kenyatta National Hospital. Repair of the uterus without tubal ligation was the treatment offered to most of them, while total abdominal hysterectomy was rarely done. The perinatal case fatality rate was 60% and there were two maternal deaths giving a maternal case fatality rate of 2.1%. Factors associated with uterine rupture at the Kenyatta National Hospital are ...

Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF alpha) levels were measured by bioassay and immunoassay in sera of children infected with Plasmodium falciparum and uninfected children in the same community in Kilifi District, Kenya. Seventy-one children, mean age 2.9 years (range 4 months-6.8 years), were enrolled; 34 children had severe malaria, 23 had mild (non-severe) malaria and 14 had no malaria. TNF alpha levels were significantly elevated in children with severe malaria compared with those with non-severe malaria and the uninfected group (P | 0.001 and P | 0.00001, respectively). The levels correlated directly with parasite densities (r = 0.54, P | 0.002). Among the children with severe malaria, TNF alpha levels correlated directly with the degree of anaemia but inversely with age. High tumour necrosis factor levels were associated with manifestations of severe malaria infection but declined to normal levels after effective antimalarial treatment.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence, clinical characteristics, management methods and prognosis of testicular cancer at Kenyatta National Hospital. DESIGN: Retrospective case study of testicular cancer patients over a fifteen year period. SETTING: Kenyatta National Hospital, a referral and teaching hospital.

Kenya, the regional hub for trade and finance in East Africa, is hampered by corruption and reliance upon several primary goods whose prices continue to decline. Following strong economic growth in 1995 and 1996, Kenyas economy has stagnated, with GDP growth failing to keep up with the rate of population growth. In 1997, the IMF suspended Kenyas Enhanced Structural Adjustment Program due to the governments failure to maintain reforms and curb corruption. A severe drought from 1999 to 2000 compounded Kenyas problems, causing water and energy rationing and reducing agricultural output. As a result, GDP contracted by 0.3% in 2000. The IMF, which had resumed loans in 2000 to help Kenya through the drought, again halted lending in 2001 when the government failed to institute several anticorruption measures. Despite the return of strong rains in 2001, weak commodity prices, endemic corruption, and low investment limited Kenyas economic growth to 1%, and Kenya is unlikely to see growth above 2% in ...

In Sub-Saharan Africa, there are active debates about whether increases in energy access should be driven by investments in electric grid infrastructure or small-scale "home solar" systems (e.g., solar lanterns and solar home systems). We summarize the results of a household electrical appliance survey and describe how households in rural Kenya differ in terms of appliance ownership and aspirations. Our data suggest that home solar is not a substitute for grid power. Furthermore, the environmental advantages of home solar are likely to be relatively small in countries like Kenya, where grid power is primarily derived from non-fossil fuel sources ...
OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of valve morbidity associated with post-operative valve patients at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi.

Objectives: To assess the impact of ultrasound (US) in resource poor settings, we tested the hypothesis that US estimates of gestational age (USGA) would result in a different preterm birth (PTB: |37 weeks) rate to that derived from clinical estimates based upon menstrual dates and/ or fundal height measurements (CGA) in a rural Kenyan population at high risk of adverse birth outcomes (estimated perinatal mortality = 80-120/1000). Methods: PTB rates according are calculated using USGA and CGA estimates measured for all women attending Kilifi District Hospital for antenatal care at |24 weeks (CGA). Clinical information including the date of the last menstrual period is recorded by government staff as part of routine care. Locally trained sonographers measure fetal crown-rump length (|14 weeks) or head circumference in the trans-thalamic plane (|14 but |24 weeks): USGA is calculated from the mean of 3-blinded measurements using published formulae. Outcomes are determined using the largest demographic

Njuguna is the secretary of the Kenya Haemophilic Association. He said only 300 to 400, or less than 10 per cent of the number, have been diagnosed and registered.. Njuguna spoke at a function to mark the World Haemophilia Day at the Kenyatta National Hospital. Haemophilia is a group of hereditary genetic disorders that impair the bodys ability to control blood clotting, which is used to stop bleeding when a blood vessel is broken. Hundreds of patients and well-wishers marched from KNH to Kenya Medical Training College to mark the day. Njuguna, a paediatrician, said most of the cases are not reported as many parents are unaware of the symptoms.. "The condition should be discovered when a child is born, during crawling and circumcision," he said. Njuguna said babies at the crawling stage are at high risk of getting injuries on their knees. The doctor said this leads to most of them being deformed and eventually using wheelchairs. Njuguna said one in 10 children worldwide is haemophilic.. ...

Salima presents a soular backpack to President Uhuru Kenyatta.. In rural Kenya, electricity is a luxury that often acts as a barrier to basic needs like education. Salima Visram, (Kenya, UWC Atlantic College, 2009 - 2011), a former Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa student, understood this to be a problem early on, growing up in Kikambala and witnessing children forgo their education because they lacked access to electricity, thereby perpetuating a vicious cycle of poverty. Her solution to knocking down this barrier comes in the form of the Soular Backpack. True to its name, the backpack makes use of solar panels to charge an LED light that students can use at night to study and do homework without having to use an expensive and carcinogenic kerosene lamp. For every hour spent in the sun, students get 5 hours of light from the lamp. Visram created the first 2,500 backpacks after successfully raising $50,000 through crowd-funding and has already been distributing them in Kenya. She has been distributing ...

A hospital-based surveillance study describes the risk factors for death amongst children who have been hospitalized with diarrhea in rural Kenya.
The reasons for the higher rates in Kenyan children are not obvious. Methodological differences (in the age group targeted and/or the definition of EIB used) are unlikely to be the full explanation. A factor which may be important is whether the parents and/or the children were raised in the urban environment and therefore subjected since childhood to urban pollution by industrial and motor vehicle emissions, both of which are features of the city of Nairobi. Urban-rural differences in diet and in the frequency and nature of childhood infections, neither of which were examined in this study, have also been implicated.18 In other parts of the world residence at high altitudes such as those of the Kenya study sites (higher than that of any of the other study sites cited in table 7) is usually associated with lower rather than higher rates of asthma, and this is attributed to the fact that house dust mites do not survive the low temperatures and relative humidity of cold winters.18In tropical ...
