[Manifestation of role conflicts among female doctors]

MOLNÁR Regina, FEITH Helga

[The basis of this study is an empirical survey performed in September 1999 among the female employees with medical degree at the Scientific University of Szeged, Faculty of General Medicine, Albert Szent-Györgyi Medical and Pharmaceutical Centre (at the time of the survey: Albert Szent-Györgyi Medical University). The main goal of the survey was to explore the burden from the workplace, family and household contributing to overstrain, role conflicts and health problems. Our research intends to elucidate the different levels of incompatibility in the life of female doctors caused by professional and family duties. Present study summarizes the most important results in the following fields: professional progress, workload, personal state of health, maintaining health, manifestation of role conflicts. ]

[Focus on quality of life: Reconstruction in Vascular Surgery ]


[The aims of the study: The aim of our research was to gain deeper insight into the quality of life of patients after reconstructive vascular surgery of the lower limb. Material and method: The Vascuqol questionnaire survey was performed at the PTE KK Vascular Surgery Clinic on the day before the surgery and 3-6 weeks after surgery (N=54). Statistical analysis was carried out with Microsoft Office Excel 2013. Results: In summary it can be stated that following surgical intervention the quality of life of patients significantly improved, this finding ephasises the importance of invasise therapy. As the extent of pain decreased after surgery, patients’ ability to walk started to improve, as well as their overall physical state and ability to carry out certain household activities. There was also an improvement in their social life, more time was spent with family and friends. Conclusions: Although the VascuQoL-25 questionaire is senstivie device to measure quality of life, it is difficult to apply in clinical practice beacause of its length.]

[Perinatal postasphyxial brain damage and its obstetric prevention]

PAPP Zoltán

[The author provides an overview of the definition and aethiopathogenesis of fetal hypoxia and asphyxia, including possible forms of post asphyxial damages of mature fetuses as well as the incidence and neurological consequences of cerebralpalsy. Among from the screening methods of fetal hypoxia the special importance of colour-Doppler and pulse-Doppler technique (flowmetry), cardiotocography (CTG), non-stress test, biophysical profile examinations, amnioscopy and fetal pulsoxymetry are emphasized. In the prevention of fetal asphyxia the significance of preconceptional and prenatal care, the importance of maternal diseases, pathological conditions of the fetus and the umbilical cord, as well as the influence of factors during labour and delivery are also emphasized. The practice of the authors is supported by the recommendation of British obstetricians, when making a fetal scalp pH examination in case of pathological CTG findings, or performing a prophylactic cesarean section if the pH examination is not available. Since the number of postasphyxial damage in mature newborn infants is still high in Hungary, it is concluded, that an increase is required in the rate of cesarean sections when fetal asphyxia is present. ]

[Trigeminovascular hypothesis of cluster headache]

TAJTI János, SZOK Délia, VÉCSEI László

[Cluster headache is a rare, very severe disorder which is clinically well characterized with a relatively poorly defined pathomechanism. Concerning the pathomechanism of cluster type headache, from the clinical symptoms three things can be inferred. The fact that head pain is centred dominantly around the eye and fore head makes it probable that the unilateral trigeminal nociceptive pathways are involved. Lacrimation and rhinorrhoea suggest the activation of the parasympa thetic, while ptosis and miosis suggest the sympathetic innervation of the region. There is a reflex connection within the brainstem that may be activated when the Gasserion ganglion is stimulated. The afferent of the reflex circle comes from the central branch of the ophthalmic division as the sensory trigeminal nerve. The parasympathetic nuclei of the seventh and ninth cranial nerves are the centre. The efferents are the parasympathetic peripheral branches of the VIlth and IXth cranial nerves. During spontaneous and nitroglycerin induced cluster attacks the levels of CGRP and VIP increased in the blood of external jugular vein. Oxygen inhalation or subcutaneous administration of sumatriptan reduced the CGRP concentration to normal. This observation supports the function of the trigeminovascular reflex in cluster headache.]

The issue of social inclusion of the Roma minority in the Czech Republic from the viewpoint of the Model of the culturallyminded and adapted care


Objective: The aim of the research was to map out the area of social inclusion of the Roma minority according to the Model of culturally-minded and adapted care. Above all to find out the subjective opinion of the Roma on their lives in the Czech Republic, the distribution of family roles or the respect of Roma traditions and customs. Methods: Data collection was carried out using a quantitative survey, in the form of a non-standardised questionnaire. The research group consisted of 600 members of the Roma minority across the Czech Republic. Results: The results show that the Roma minority feels some intolerance, in some cases even discrimination from the majority of society. Although in a Roma family the traditional division of the roles of the mother - maternal role, the father - the family breadwinner persists, these roles change slightly depending on the style of family upbringing and cohabitation with the older generations. The life of a Roma according to Roma traditions and customs subsides slightly into the background. Younger and single Roma no longer follow traditions like their parents. Therefore, there is an obvious large influence from the majority of society towards the Roma minority. Conclusion: The Roma minority is a group of people with many specifics. To coexist with a majority society, therefore, there is a need for understanding and tolerance on both sides. For a better understanding of this minority, the conceptual model of the following authors J. N. Giger and R.E. Davidhizar can help us, as it complexly approaches the specific needs of an individual with a different culture or religion.

[Diabetology in dialysis]


[According to epidemiological data, the number of diabetic patients requiring dialysis is increasing. Burnt-out diabetes, new onset diabetes during chronic dialysis treatment and new onset diabetes after transplantation diabetes are new types of diabetes compared to the traditional division forms. It is utmost important to evaluate education ability and acceptance the core values of lifestyle changes. Clear guidelines for oral anti-diabetic and insulin therapy have not yet been developed since this group of patients did not participate in previous major surveys. In order to formulate individualized therapeutic recommendations, it is imperative to perform regular glucose self-monitoring, which is also the cornerstone of solving unexpected situations. Both in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, special considerations should be applied to the diabetic patient group, this review focuses on the current understanding of available relevant knowledge and summarizes presumably extrarenal diabetic complications as well.]
