[Current issues in the peripartum management of diabetic women from the perspective of an internist-diabetologist]

KERÉNYI Zsuzsanna

[In pregnancy complicated with diabetes, treatment of hyperglycaemia is of fundamental importance during delivery in order to improve the outcome parameters of both the mother and the neonate. This is particularly important in the case of mothers with type 1 diabetes and of all mothers who require insulin treatment during their pregnancy. The use of antenatal steroids for women at risk of pre-term birth further complicates the treatment of hyperglycaemia in the period immediately before... tovább »

[Exploring the legal implementation of patient information in adult general practice]

LENGYEL Ingrid

[Informing patients is still a concern for both patients and physi­cians. The §45/1 of the Act 1972 II. dealt the first time with general patient informa­tion. The right of patients to adequate information and the obligations of healthcare providers in order to enforce this right are enshrined in Articles 13 and §134-135 of the Act CLIV 1997 on Health. Under these laws, the patient is entitled to the full information provided to him/her in an indivi­dualized form. Regarding the content and... tovább »

PÓNUSZ Róbert, BONCZ Imre, KOVÁCS Dalma, CSONKA Diána, GAZSÓ Tibor, MOLICS Bálint, LUDMAN István, ENDREI Dóra

[In Hungary, the systematic waiting-list reduction program (“X” financing code) started in 2015 aiming to significantly reduce the waiting times of most relevant waiting lists services. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utilization and the territorial distribution of cases financed under the “X-code” between 2015 and 2018. We designed a retrospective and quantitative research on data of the Hungarian National Health Insurance Fund. Relevant data contained all publicly financed X-code... tovább »

[Whether we teach effectively what we consider being important? As seen by medical educators]

VARGA Zsuzsanna, PÓTÓ Zsuzsanna, CSATHÓ Árpád, FÜZESI Zsuzsanna

[In Hungary the training and output requirements of faculty of general medicine determine the required knowledge, skills and abilities, i.e. competences of graduated me­dical doctors. On the one hand, we examined how the tea­chers ponder the weight of competences established for medical education in the training and output requirements, on the other hand to what extent they mediate these during their teaching activity. The field research by self-developed questionnaires was carried out in... tovább »

[Nanobiophysics of new type coronavirus]

KISS Bálint, KIS Zoltán, PÁLYI Bernadett, KELLERMAYER Miklós

[The Covid-19 pandemic has swept across the world, causing a never seen burden on our health care systems and challenging biomedical research to give appropriate answers to the epidemic. Modern, one-particle biophysical methods ensure special insight to the characteristics of the cause of the epidemic, the SARS-CoV-2. The virus carries a crown-like layer of spike proteins, which plays a fundamental role in the process of infection. The topography structure and mechanical characteristics of... tovább »

[Screening and care of patients with lower extremity arterial disease in Hungary]

FARKAS Katalin, KOLOSSVÁRY Endre

[Lower extremity arterial disease, in addition to the worsening life quality due to the concerning complaints and the rist of amputation, entails high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The prevalence of this disease in the Hungarian po­pulation is close to 600 000 people, based on an extrapolation of the international epi­demiological data. In the recent years two target studies started (i) to analyse the performance of screening for lower extremity arterial disease in a... tovább »

[Clinical implication of arterial stiffness in the elderly]

BENCZÚR Béla

[Hypertension prevalence and cardiovascular risk gradually with age. However this aging process seems to take a more rapid course in some individuals, as reflected in the Early Vascular Aging (EVA) syndrome. Age and high blood pressure are the two main determinants of arterial stiffness which is the core of EVA: the impaired elasticity of the media layer of large elastic arteries (mainly the aorta), a process that can be measured by pulse wave velocity. In elderly hyperten­sives, large arteries... tovább »
