    Kateter Vena Cenral boleh tercabut dengan senang daripada tubuh badan.
    Artikel ini membincang tiga teknik terperinci yang berinovasi untuk mengelakkan
    berlakunya insiden kateter tercabut. Penempatan leher kateter kira-kira 1cm dari
    tempat kateter keluar pada bahagian kulit dengan jahitan tambahan di bahagian
    leher kateter membantu mencegah insiden kateter tercabut.

    We report a case of perforation over duodeno-jejunal junction (DJ) in a healthy 8-month-old baby. The difficulty in diagnosis, management dilemma and probable etiology is discussed.

    This study aimed to assess the knowledge of blood-borne diseases transmitted through needle stick injuries amongst health-care workers in a tertiary teaching hospital. We also aimed to assess the practices of universal precautions amongst these workers and its correlation with the facts. We carried out a cross-sectional study from January to July 2008 involving various levels of health-care workers in Serdang Hospital, Selangor, Malaysia. A self-administered questionnaire assessing knowledge of blood-borne diseases and universal precautions, and actual practice of universal precautions was used. Two hundred fifteen respondents participated in this study; 63.3% were staff nurses. The mean knowledge score was 31.84 (SD 4.30) and the mean universal practice score was 9.0 (SD 2.1). There was a small, positive correlation between knowledge and actual practice of universal precautions (r = 0.300, n = 206, p < 0.001) amongst the cohort studied. Factors such as age and years of experience did not contribute towards acquisition of knowledge about blood-borne illnesses or the practice of universal precautions.

    VACTERL association is a rare genetic disorder involving at least three of the following congenital
    malformations: vertebral defects (V), anal atresia (A), cardiac defects (C), trachea-oesophageal fistula with
    or without oesophageal atresia (TE), renal anomalies (R) and limb abnormalities (L). Until now, the
    aetiology of VACTERL association is unknown, particularly at the molecular level. Here, we performed
    whole exome sequencing (WES) of an infant with VACTERL association. The patient was delivered
    prematurely at 30 weeks and had 4/6 of the VACTERL malformations. Trio-WES analysis was performed
    using Torrent Suite and ANNOVAR. Polymorphisms with an allele frequency of >0.01 were excluded, and
    the remaining variants were filtered based on de novo mutations, autosomal recessive, X-linked and di-genic
    inheritance traits. In this patient, no homozygous, compound heterozygous or X-linked mutations was
    associated with VACTERL. However, we identified two heterozygous mutations; KIF27
    (ENST00000297814: c.3004A> C:p.N1002H) and GNAS (ENST00000371098: c.205C>A:p.H69N) genes that
    were inherited from her father and mother respectively. A de novo, IFT140 gene mutation
    (ENST00000426508: c.683C>G:p.S228C) was also identified in this patient. The VACTERL phenotype in
    this patient may due to heterozygous mutations affecting KIF27 and GNAS genes, inherited via autosomal
    recessive trait. In addition, the IFT140 gene mutation may also be involved. These genes are known to be
    directly or non-directly involved in the sonic hedgehog signalling that is known to be implicated in
    VACTERL. This is the first report of these genetic mutations in association with VACTERL.

    OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate a multidisciplinary, interventional, ergonomic education program designed to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal problems by reducing schoolbag weight and correcting poor sitting posture.
    METHODS: Data were collected twice before and twice following intervention using the Standardized Nordic Body Map Questionnaire, a rapid upper limb assessment for posture evaluation, and schoolbag weight measurement in children aged 8 and 11 years attending two schools within the central region of Malaysia.
    RESULTS: Students who received the ergonomic intervention reported significant improvements in their sitting posture in a classroom environment and reduction of schoolbag weight as compared with the controls.
    CONCLUSION: A single-session, early intervention, group ergonomics education program for children aged 8 and 11 years is appropriate and effective, and should be considered as a strategy to reduce musculoskeletal pain among schoolchildren in this age group.

    To meet the current diversified health needs in workplaces, especially in nonindustrial workplaces in developing countries, an indoor air quality (IAQ) component of a participatory occupational safety and health survey should be included.
