In this study, we aimed to study congenital anomalies in the population of the study region regarding the frequency and highlight the associated risk factors. The types of congenital malformations have been classified according to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). Univariate analyzes were performed to identify the variables associated with the etiology of the malformations. Multiple logistic regression was used to characterize the associations between the MC, and the determining explanatory variables are taken into account simultaneously. The results found that congenital disabilities were significantly associated with the consanguinity level of the child, the prematurity of childbirth, the family history of CMs, the Body Mass index. (BMI) of the mother and the presence of a significant trauma during pregnancy. Our results have made it possible to highlight the existence of an association between a certain number of risk factors and the occurrence of congenital malformations</p> SAID EL MADIDI, Bouadil Karim Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Nursing and Health Services (IJNHS) https://ijnhs.net/index.php/ijnhs/article/view/363 Sun, 20 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Factors Related to Anemia in Trimester of III among Pregnant Women in the Working Area of Puskesmas, Cengkareng District, 2019 https://ijnhs.net/index.php/ijnhs/article/view/427 <p>Anemia in pregnant women is a condition of red blood cells (erythrocytes) &lt;11 gr/dl in trimesters III. It is unable to fulfill its function as a carrier of oxygen to all body tissues. Data obtained from the Cengkareng District Health Center recorded the number of anemia sufferers in third-trimester pregnant women in October 2019 as many as 40 people. This study aims to determine the factors associated with anemia incidence in third-trimester pregnant women in the Cengkareg District Health Center in 2019. This type of research is quantitative with a case-control research design to obtain field data of 80 respondents conducted by filling in medical records with total sampling techniques for case group respondents and control groups. The results of the Chi-Square test showed a relationship between nutritional status (p = 0.002), ANC visits (p = 0,000), parity (p = 0.022) and the incidence of anemia in third trimester pregnant women. It is expected that the public health center can further optimize programs for pregnant women so that they do not experience an increase in third-trimester pregnant women's anemia</p> Ummu Nida, Gisely Vionalita Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Nursing and Health Services (IJNHS) https://ijnhs.net/index.php/ijnhs/article/view/427 Sun, 20 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Medication Adherence Improvement of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus https://ijnhs.net/index.php/ijnhs/article/view/430 <p>Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a degenerative disease with long-term medication which needs home care service to enhance patients' obedience to medication compliance. The study aimed to investigate the effect of home care counseling on patients' medication adherence in prescribed medicine use. Methods: The research design was quasi-experimental using pre-test post-test without control group approach. A total of 43 patients with type 2 DM at the outpatient unit of Sari Mutiara General Hospital were selected through consecutive sampling techniques. The patients were given counseling in medicine using home care visits over 24 times in July 2017 and September 2017. Results: Patient adherence evaluation on disease medication was carried out through questionnaire administration before the patient received counseling (pre-test) and received counseling (post-test). Data from the Questionnaire were analyzed using the Wilcoxon test with a confidence level was 95%. Before counseling, the average score of patients was 3.26. However, after counseling was carried out to the patients, the average score was 0.72. In conclusion, there was an increase in patient adherence, i.e., 2.54. It was also obtained that there was a significant difference in patients' adherence to medication use before and after receiving counseling in-home care, with a significance value of 0.000 (p&lt;0.05). It indicated that home care counseling was effective in enhancing their medication adherence.

Women who suffer from this disease will choose treatment using mastectomy. Mastectomy treatment is a process of removing all breast tissue that can inhibit the development of cancer cells. Post-operative mastectomy pain can be relieved by non-pharmacological therapy, one of which is murotal therapy. This case study aims to present the results of applying evidence-based murotal treatment to reduce pain scales in post-mastectomy surgery patients. Physical examination was performed using the head-to-toe method in post-operative patients. The North American Nursing Diagnosis Association is used to determine nursing diagnoses. Meanwhile, nursing intervention refers to the Nursing Intervention Classification and Nursing Outcome Classification. The intervention was carried out in five stages of evidence-based nursing implementation in nursing practice, with complementary therapy in murotal therapy and progressive application for 6 days for post-mastectomy surgery patients. As a result, giving murotal therapy intervention for 6 days showed a reduction in the pain scale from a scale of 4 (1-10) to 1 (1-10). The implementation of EBN murotal therapy proved to be effective in reducing the intensity of the pain scale in post-mastectomy surgery patients</p> Heri Ariyanto, Henri Setiawan, Heri Ariyanto, Windi Oktavia Copyright (c) 2021 International Journal of Nursing and Health Services (IJNHS) https://ijnhs.net/index.php/ijnhs/article/view/461 Sun, 20 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Range of Motion Exercise to Improve Muscle Strength among Stroke Patients: A Literature Review https://ijnhs.net/index.php/ijnhs/article/view/464 <p>Stroke was a disturbance in part or all brain function caused by abnormal blood flow to the brain, disrupting bodily functions such as muscle weakness. One of the efforts that could be done to overcome muscle weakness in stroke patients was the Range Of Motion (ROM) exercise which could be done independently or assisted by health workers. The purpose of this literature review was to identify the effect of range of motion (ROM) exercise in increasing muscle strength in stroke patients. This study used a descriptive method with a literature review approach. The search strategy used six international journal databases: PubMed, JSTOR, Wiley Online Library, Sage Journal, ScienceDirect, and Taylor &amp; Francis Online. In addition, a search was conducted on one national journal database, namely Google Scholar. The selection was conducted by assessing articles that met the inclusion criteria, such as publication range from 2005-2021, in English, Indonesian, and other languages that can be translated and opened full access text. After the selection process, nine articles that met the inclusion criteria were obtained, with 197 respondents assigned randomly and grouped into 58 control groups, 55 intervention groups, 84 combined groups.

Effectively in self-management has been demonstrated to conjunction patients with a health provider and support system to solve the patient's problem. Self-management in DM is very popular but still complex and abstract. Ambiguity regarding the intention of self-management in DM can cause confusion and misunderstanding among health professionals about the purpose and the application in the clinical situation. A perceptible definition regarding self-management for diabetes is required for clinical setting implication and future research. The study aimed<strong> to</strong> clarify and formalize the concept analysis of self-management in DM. We clarify the meaning of self-management in DM with concept analysis as outlined by Walker and Avant (2005). Attributes of self-management in diabetes were glycemic control process and activities, self-control, health-seeking, problem-solving, and decision making. Antecedents, consequences, and empirical referents are explained. Model, borderline, related, and contrary cases are explaining to clear and clarify the concept. Defining the concept can help the researcher solve the patient's problem about conjunction among patients with a health provider.
