Pak Heart J Vol 49, No 3 (2016)

Pakistan Heart Journal

Objective: The aim of our study was to determine the frequency and severity ofMR in patients presenting with STEMI after emergency reperfusion treatmentwith primary percutaneous coronary Intervention (P-PCI) or streptokinase (SK)during hospital stay. Methodology: This cross-sectional study was conducted at National Institute ofCardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), Karachi for six month of duration from 1stAugust 2013 to 31st January 2014. Patients of both genders aged between 20-60 years presenting with STEMI who underwent emergency reperfusion therapywith primary percutaneous coronary Intervention (P-PCI) or streptokinase (SK)were included in the study. Descriptive analyses were performed for socieodemographiccharacteristics while Chi-square test was applied for theassociation of different characteristics among various categories of mitralregurgitation. Results: Total of 262 patients were included in the study with mean age of53.9±7.1 years. Of them 68% of the patients were males. Mitral regurgitation(mild, moderated and severe) with different characteristics was found in 58%(152) patients .Elderly patients with acute inferior wall MI (IWMI) and thosereceiving SK were more likely to have MR. Furthermore patients with IWMI andthose receiving SK were more likely to suffer from severe grade ofMR(p 0.05). Conclusion: MR is a frequent complication of STEMI and it was more frequent inpatients with IWMI or who received SK as a mean of emergency thrombolysis.

OBESITY, AN EMERGING EPIDEMIC IN PAKISTAN-A REVIEW OF EVIDENCE

VOL 28, NO 3 (2016)

Journal of Ayub Medical college Abbottabad JAMC

Background: In Pakistan, the disease pattern is facing a huge changeover from acute and communicable diseases to the non-communicable diseases. Moreover, an emerging epidemic of obesity is still under recognized in Pakistan. A detailed review and dissemination of the existing knowledge to determine the extent of burden of obesity can help understand this important public health issue. Methods: A detailed literature review was conducted through PubMed search engines, regarding obesity burden in Pakistan. The original peer reviewed research articles, reports of WHO in English language, non-government organizations reports were included in the review. “Obesity AND Pakistan” were used as a search terms. Results: Pakistan is suffering from epidemic of obesity, affecting all age groups. Urban population, particularly women shows considerable higher burden of obesity as compared to men and women from rural population. However, among children and adolescents there is variation in prevalence of obesity. Girls from all age groups are predominantly more obese as compared to boys. Most of the studies have estimated child obesity among school going children of different age groups and need careful interpretation. Conclusion:Pakistan is currently suffering from an emerging epidemic of obesity. The rising burden of obesity is widespread among adults (man and women) and children. The burden of obesity is higher among females in all age groups as compare to males. Effective interventions are required at population level to prevent and control this emerging public health issue

Burden and associated factors for caregivers of the elderly in a developing country.

East Mediterr Health J. 2016 Sep 25;22(6):394-403.

East Mediterr Health J

The elderly population in South Asia is growing. In Pakistan trained caregivers are scarce and culturally not acceptable. This study assessed the level of stress experienced by caregivers of the elderly and determined the association of care giving burden with different characteristics of the elderly. A cross-sectional, questionnaire based study was conducted using nonprobability purposive sampling. All consenting participants aged 60 years and above needing help with at least one activity of daily living or two instrumental activities of daily living were included. 350 participants were assessed for perceived care giver burden. Care providers were mostly female (68.9%). Half (50.3%) of the caregivers had a positive score on a perceived care burden scale. Financial impact had a strong correlation (0.79) with perceived caregiver burden. Higher dependency levels of a physical and cognitive nature posed greater burden on caregivers. Behavioural issues of the elderly such as verbal abuse and difficulty sleeping were predictors of a higher caregiver burden. Caregiver burden is a significant issue for those caring for elderly family members in Karachi, Pakistan
