The evaluation of the contribution of neurological dengue in suspected central nervous system (CNS) viral infections is essential to better understand the impact of neurological dengue on morbidity and mortality in dengue endemic regions such as Jamaica. For this study 401 cases of suspected viral CNS infections were investigated for evidence of dengue(More)
Data in the Caribbean documenting the speciation of yeast associated with vulvovaginitis are lacking. The widespread use of antibiotics and increased availability of antimycotic agents, both prescribed and over-the-counter, predisposes both to a change in the epidemiologic patterns and the possible development of secondary resistance among previously(More)
U Executive Summary Competence encompasses knowledge, skills, abilities, and traits. It is gained in the healthcare professions through pre-service education, in-service training, and work experience. Competence is a major determinant of provider performance as represented by conformance with various clinical, non-clinical, and interpersonal standards.(More)
BACKGROUND The haematological profile of the pregnant woman has an impact on the outcome of the pregnancy. Published guidelines indicate acceptable levels for haematological indices in pregnancy but they are population specific. Indicators of haemoglobin concentration are the most commonly utilized of the indices. These published international norms are(More)
Validation of surveillance data is necessary to ensure its scientific credibility, to identify methodological problems within the surveillance programme, to help increase compliance and participation in the surveillance programme, and to identify data quality issues at local level. Surgical site infection surveillance (SSIS) in Scotland has been implemented(More)
OBJECTIVE Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease with increasing prevalence. Individuals with diabetes are at risk for long-term complications such as nephropathy, retinopathy, and cardiovascular complications. Additionally, several studies have indicated that diabetes doubles the risk for depression. Individuals with depression are also said to be at greater(More)
Homozygous sickle cell disease (HbSS) is a complicating factor in pregnancy resulting in perinatal morbidity and mortality. One of the hallmarks of sickle cell disease is increased whole blood viscosity. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of the maternal blood viscosity on perinatal outcome in steady-state homozygous sickle disease in(More)
A case of intravenous leiomyomatosis with massive ascites is reported. This is the first such recorded case. The patient was treated with a subtotal abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Pathological examination established a vessel wall origin. There is no evidence of recurrence up to 20 months after initial treatment.
One of the features of preeclampsia is impaired blood rheology due to altered erythrocyte aggregation and erythrocyte deformability. We investigated these two parameters which affect the viscosity of blood, along with serum and intraerythrocytic magnesium concentrations, immunoglobulin titres and fibrinogen concentration in 12 preeclamptic women. Eighteen(More)
