Nigeria ranks fourth among 22 high tuberculosis (TB) burden countries. Although it reached 99% DOTS coverage in 2008, current case detection rate is 40%. Little is known about delays before the start of TB therapy and health-seeking behaviour of TB patients in rural resource-limited settings. We aimed to: 1) assess healthcare-seeking behaviour and delay in treatment of pulmonary TB patients, 2) identify the determinants of the delay in treatment of pulmonary TB. We conducted a cross-sectional study of adult new pulmonary TB patients notified to the National Tuberculosis Control Programme (NTP) by three rural (two mission/one public) hospitals. Data on health-seeking and delays were collected using a standardised questionnaire. We defined patient delay as the interval (weeks) between the onset of cough and the first visit to any health provider, and health system delay as the time interval (weeks) between patients first attendance to any health provider, and the onset of treatment. Total delay is the
In the Gaza strip, diarrhea is one of main reasons for children visiting primary healthcare centers. Hence, we investigate predictors of the diarrheal illness and health care-seeking behavior among different age groups. This community-based cross-sectional survey was conducted from August 2017 to June 2018 among 1857 households. A pretested structured questionnaire included information about socio-demographic, sanitation, hygiene, source of water, diarrheal illness, and seeking healthcare in households was administered to head of household. To achieve representativeness for the five Gazas governorates, a cluster random sampling was applied. Of the 1857 households heads, 421 (22.7%) reported an episode of diarrhea during the 48 h preceding the interview resulting an overall prevalence rate of 3.8 per 100 individuals. The prevalence of diarrhea was statistical significant greater in males (5.4/100) compared to females (1.3/100) in all age groups (p | 0.05). Socio-demographic, economic, water,

The dataset used in the analyses was constructed by merging all reported symptoms experienced by the responders with each individual symptom experience. This was then used as a study case. For each symptom experience, the outcome variable was whether or not the GP had been contacted about the symptom. To assess the appropriateness of merging the 44 different symptom experiences, the researchers conducted sensitivity analyses considering each of the 44 symptom experiences separately.. Covariates considered in the uni-, bi-, and multivariable statistical analyses were; influence on daily activities, concern about the symptom, and symptom burden. Influence on daily activities, concern about the symptom and general concern about the current health were categorised on a 5-point scale: none at all, slight, moderate, quite a bit, and extreme.. The number of symptoms experienced by each individual was used as a proxy for the symptom burden. Thus, for each symptom experience reported by the ...

For the vast majority of newborn babies, birth and adaptation to extrauterine life happens as a completely normal process that does not require medical attention at all. For them, even the administrative routines of hospital admission are bypassed: they are cared for in nurseries rather than in hospital wards, and they are usually registered together with their mothers (or not at all) in the obstetric service. Unavoidably, perhaps, the normal newborn infant and its mothers mothering ability are frequently virtually ignored and left to the most junior staff, who have almost certainly had inadequate training to deal with difficulties.. And yet in the neonatal period arguably lie the origins of influences that have the potential to alter lifes course. The aim of keeping healthy children healthy is influenced strongly by good mothering behaviour in respect of care, feeding and nutrition, immunisation and healthcare-seeking behaviour, early childhood education and environmental control. ...
Background: This study aimed to analyse the patient predictors of health-seeking behaviour for persons coughing for more than 2 weeks to better understand this vulnerable and important population. Methods: The study analysed data from a cohort study (SOCS - Secondary Outcome Cohort Study) embedded in a community randomised trial ZAMSTAR (Zambia and South Africa TB and AIDS Reduction Study) in eight high-burden TB communities in the Western Cape, South Africa. These datasets are unique as they contain TB-related data as well as data on health, health-seeking behaviour, lifestyle choices, employment, socio-economic status, education and stigma. We use uni- and multivariate logistic regressions to estimate the odds ratios of consulting for a cough (of more than 2 weeks duration) for a range of relevant patient predictors. Results: Three hundred and forty persons consulted someone about their cough and this represents 37% of the 922 participants who reported coughing for more than 2 weeks. In the ...

Heart failure (HF) patients frequently suffer from episodes of deterioration and may need medical treatment. An adequate reaction from the patient is needed to decrease the delay between the onset of deterioration and consulting a medical professional (i.e. consulting behaviour). The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether depressive symptoms are associated with the duration of the delay between the onset of symptoms of worsening HF and hospitalization, and to examine how consulting behaviour correlates to depressive symptoms and delay in HF patients.

Dont be afraid to seek medical help. I was embarassed too at first. The only difference is I thought there was no reason I should be depressed, and I knew that very insignificant things were upsetting me. I was also afraid of what I was going to be diagnosed with...I was very afraid of being bi polar.

My family doctor is simply trying to provide me the medication that I need to be functional. It is a hit and miss process, but I can guarantee you that it is worth it.

BACKGROUND: Assessing healthcare utilization is important to identify weaknesses of healthcare systems, to outline action points for preventive measures and interventions, and to more accurately estimate the disease burden in a population. METHODS: A healthcare utilization survey was developed for the Typhoid Fever Surveillance in Africa Program (TSAP) to adjust incidences of salmonellosis determined through passive, healthcare facility-based surveillance. This cross-sectional survey was conducted at 11 sites in 9 sub-Saharan African countries. Demographic data and healthcare-seeking behavior were assessed at selected households. Overall and age-stratified percentages of each study population that sought healthcare at a TSAP healthcare facility and elsewhere were determined. RESULTS: Overall, 88% (1007/1145) and 81% (1811/2238) of the population in Polesgo and Nioko 2, Burkina Faso, respectively, and 63% (1636/2590) in Butajira, Ethiopia, sought healthcare for fever at any TSAP healthcare ...

Medical tourism isnt a recent global phenomenon; it dates back to thousands of years, when Greek pilgrims travelled everywhere the Mediterranean to the tiny territory within the Gulf of Aegina called Epidauria, a medical tourism destination of that era.. With the appearance of globalization and culture of consumerism, theres an increasing tendency among people to travel in search of higher quality and affordable health options. Medical tourism includes medical treatments, wellness and alternative medicines.. Medical tourism is gradually transitioning towards medical value travel that also includes capturing a patients healthcare-seeking behavior yet because of the wider economic impact on the countries hosting them.. It is estimated that 11 million people travel annually to hunt medical aid out of their country, which is around 1 percent of the worldwide tourist volume.

In this study, we used a novel large-scale, prospective, community-based survey to identify people with TB-indicative symptoms in South India and reveal key barriers to delayed care-seeking. We then identified a subpopulation of employed men who problem-drink and smoke, who are particularly at risk of TB and unlikely to seek care. While they comprise only 10% of our sample, we model that they may account for 54% of all TB-diagnosed individuals in Chennai who do not promptly seek care, making them a prime target for targeted interventions to increase care-seeking behaviour.. Characteristics around occupation and health behaviours emerged as strong overall predictors of delayed care-seeking. In particular, problem drinking and smoking were both strongly negatively associated with seeking care for TB symptoms. We also found large differences in care-seeking behaviour by occupation, with individuals who are not in the labour force (home makers and the retired/unemployed/disabled) being more likely ...
Abstract. Maternal practices regarding children's health care have been recognized as an important factor associated with mortality rates among children < 5 years of age. We focused on health care-seeking practices of primary caretakers of children < 5 years of age with diarrheal disease in Kolkata. We interviewed caretakers of 1,058 children in a baseline survey and 6,077 children on six subsequent surveys. The prevalence of diarrhea during the preceding 2 weeks was 7.9% in the baseline survey and 5.7% (lowest 3.5% to highest 7.8%) in subsequent surveys. Multivariate logistic regression showed that formal education of primary caretakers was associated with seeking care outside the home (odds ratio [OR] = 15.5; 95% confidence interval [CI] [2.5-85.7]; P = 0.002). Multinomial logistic regression showed that formal education of the primary caretaker (OR = 21.4; 95% CI [3.2-139.0]; P = 0.002) and presence of dry mouth during diarrhea (OR = 17.3; 95% CI [2.7-110.9]; P = 0.003) were associated

In the case of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy the heart muscle thickens, making it more difficult for blood to travel away from the heart. As a result, the heart must work much harder in order to perform its job of pumping blood. In some instances, cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may occur on one side of the heart, meaning that it is asymmetrical. In younger people the condition is generally more severe although it can be diagnosed in patients of any age. Young athletes, many of those who previously seemed healthy, if affected by this disorder could suddenly collapse and die during periods of intensive exercise. Thus early detection could be life saving for these athletes. Symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy include:. ...

The health care debate in the United States is far from over despite the passage of health care legislation. Studies show about half of Americans lack confidence in their health care system. Others are pushing for a repeal of the health care legislation, and still others put off getting medical help even after a heart attack because they worry about paying for their care. Americans are just as divided on health care as they were before President Obamas health reform legislation became law.
Nazma Begum has come to Gonoshasthya Kendra in Savar with stomach pains, travelling several miles from Dhamrai with her mother, Kajali Begum.

I ran out of Advil, and sent Josh out in search of a pharmacy to find something to suppress a fever. He came back with a kind of aspirin that you dissolve in water like alka-seltzer. I tried this and it did not help. I decided I needed to seek medical help. The hotel said there was an excellent hospital, five minutes away by cab, which had special emergency services for foreigners. We got in a cab, and were taken to a spot on the street and told to walk down about 100 meters to the entrance. We found the entrance and went in. In Chinese hospitals you must pay for everything first. Josh quickly mastered the system.

He thought I had a viral infection, with perhaps a ...
