  • 2023 № 4 Aspects of the quality of the life of persons of working age with chronic noncommunicable diseases of the respiratory organs

    Chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCD) are widespread and affect people of different age groups in all countries. The fight against this group of diseases is one of the priorities of the modern health care. Non-infectious diseases of the respiratory system as well as other diseases, affect social, physical and mental components of well-being. The qualitative assessment of their influence helps to assess the study of the quality of life.
    P u r p o s e : to assess the quality of life of the working-age population of the Nizhny Novgorod region and to develop measures to reduce the risk factors for chronic non-infectious diseases of the respiratory system in these cohorts.
    M a t e r i a l s a n d m e t h o d s . A one-stage comparative study was carried out using the method of standardized interviewing using the SF‑36 questionnaire. The quality of life of people of various age-gender groups with chronic non-infectious diseases of the respiratory system was assessed. All respondents were stratified into groups by pathology and age.
    R e s u l t s . The scientific article reflects the results of the study of assessing the quality of life of working-age patients with the chronic respiratory system pathology. The analysis of the data revealed statistically significant differences in age, gender and groups of pathologies among the respondents. Differences in indicators reflecting emotional states were revealed among men and women of the working age. Age-related changes in indicators of physical and psychological components of health and on all scales of the quality of life were presented. The obtained values of patient indicators show the need to develop specific measures to reduce behavioral risk factors for chronic non-infectious respiratory diseases of the population of the Nizhny Novgorod region.
    Findings. The comparative analysis of the results of the scales of the quality of life and health components reflects the age-related changes in indicators. The people of the older age group of the working age demonstrate significantly low results. The indicators of physical functioning are statistically significantly different in different pathologies of the respiratory system. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) restricts the physical activity of patients more strongly than other pathologies. Low values of the quality of life reflect the need to develop the measures to reduce the risk factors for chronic non-infectious diseases for the population of the Nizhny Novgorod region.

  • 2023 № 9 Self-assessment of reproductive health by future doctors.

    The reproductive health of the younger generation is of particular medical and social importance. The state of health of today’s youth, their reproductive potential and attitudes will be reflected in the demographic situation of Russia’s future. To maintain and improve the reproductive health of young people, a whole range of medical measures is being implemented. Of interest is the state of reproductive health of future doctors who receive a comprehensive education in the field of health care and have the highest level of knowledge about risk factors and health-saving technologies.
    T h e p u r p o s e o f t h e s t u d y : to analyze the responses of medical students to assess their reproductive health and commitment to maintaining it.
    M a t e r i a l s a n d m e t h o d s . An anonymous survey of 460 medical students studying at medical universities in St. Petersburg was conducted (September-October 2022). Methods of analytical and descriptive statistics were used.
    R e s u l t s . There is a low effectiveness of activities to inform adolescents about sexual education and reproductive health. Most students do not consider their own health as a priority for the coming years, give a low assessment of their physical condition, rarely go in for sports or do not do it at all, every second eats irregularly. A third of young people suffer from acute and chronic extragenital diseases, and every fifth has a pathology of the reproductive system. 72.6% of girls and only 21.4% of boys visit a gynecologist/urologist/andrologist at least once a year, more often for preventive purposes. During sexual intercourse, respondents prefer barrier contraceptives that meet the requirements of availability, reliability and ease of use.
    C o n c l u s i o n s . When developing strategies for improving and maintaining reproductive health, gender differences, medical and social characteristics and motivation of young people should be taken into account. To improve reproductive health-saving behavior, it is necessary to increase the availability of preventive measures, incl. anonymous counseling.

  • 2021 № 8 Concerning the process of forming motivation to a healthy lifestyle

    The components of the concept of a healthy lifestyle, starting with the provisions presented in early sources, are considered from the standpoint of management. It was found that it is difficult to achieve the increase of the number of citizens leading a healthy lifestyle in the absence of clear criteria for the healthy lifestyle, since there is an objective difficulty in assessing the lifestyle of people. It is definitely necessary to formulate the basic principles for creating lists of criteria for healthy lifestyle in order to effectively motivate citizens for health-preserving behavior.
    The need was identified to update and expand a number of modern lists that are used to obtain information that serves as the basis for making managerial decisions in the field of public health protection at the strategic level based on the analysis of the main existing lists of criteria for a healthy lifestyle. It is proposed to create an individual list of criteria for a healthy lifestyle by forming a low-variability part using the traditional approach, and a high-variability part using the personalized approach.
    The formulated principles of compiling lists of criteria for a healthy lifestyle can be used in the system of motivating and stimulating citizens to health-preserving behavior, aimed at reducing the prevalence of known behavioral risk factors for diseases.

  • 2022 № 4 The relationship between the structure of nutrition and chronic non-communicable diseases

    I n t r o d u c t i o n . The article analyzes modern literary sources and scientific ideas devoted to the study of the role of healthy
    nutrition and the influence of nutrition factors on health. Proper and healthy nutrition is the basis of a high-quality human life,
    affects health, longevity and performance. Modern nutrition should not only satisfy the physiological needs of a person for nutrients
    and energy, but also perform preventive and therapeutic functions. Diets based entirely on the consumption of plant products are
    becoming increasingly popular due to the many claimed health benefits. Numerous studies conducted in recent years indicate
    that a plant-based diet with a restriction of animal products is accompanied by a lower risk of developing chronic diseases, and
    in some nosologies contributes to disease control. The goals and objectives of the prevention of healthy eating are to preserve
    and strengthen the health of the population, prevent diseases caused by inadequate and unbalanced nutrition. M a t e r i a l s a n d
    m e t h o d s . A review of the literature on the control of food safety, the fullness and balance of nutrition, compliance with dietary
    regimes. R e s u l t s . With eating disorders, the ability to withstand adverse environmental influences, stress, increased mental
    and physical exertion sharply decreases. An imbalance of nutrients, vitamins and minerals in the composition of food leads to
    metabolic disorders and subsequently to disease. D i s c u s s i o n . Rational nutrition is considered as one of the components of
    “lifestyle medicine”. At the same time, most researchers emphasize the need for large-scale population-based research in this
    area in accordance with modern principles of evidence-based medicine. C o n c l u s i o n . The results of numerous studies indicate
    the significant role of nutrition in the development of various diseases, their prevention and treatment. Nutrition is the basis for all
    metabolic processes of the human body, therefore, a violation of nutrition contributes to the occurrence of the disease. A healthy
    diet and a healthy lifestyle are the basis of disease prevention.

  • 2021 № 4 PROFESSIONAL BURNOUT OF NURSES: FEATURES OF GENERATIONS

    Professional burnout among nurses is an urgent public health problem, which negatively affects the quality of medical care. A specialist’s belonging to a certain generation determines its own characteristics of the response to stress factors and the development of professional burnout.
    Purpose of the study is to determine the main patterns of occurrence of professional burnout among nurses depending on the generation for development and implementation of targeted prevention methods.
    Materials and methods. A one-stage comparative study was planned and conducted using a specially designed questionnaire, including a burnout questionnaire MBI (Maslach Burnout Inventory) and questions assessing professional performance and socioeconomic status to determine the factors of professional burnout. All nurses were stratified into three generational groups.
    Results. The study involved 2486 nurses. It was found that respondents of all generations were prone to professional burnout, with a high and extremely high degree. At the same time, the third generation was most susceptible to the development of professional burnout, the first was the least. The main predictors of the development of professional burnout in the third generation were: lack of sleep and rest, low salary and large loan payments, excessive work load; in the first – the presence of chronic diseases. The second generation had a smaller percentage of respondents with an extremely high degree of professional burnout, because they were characterized by lower labor intensity, lack of sleep deficit and the highest salary.
    Findings. Thus, prevention measures can be individual for each generation, with considering the differences in predictive and protective factors. While, it is necessary to focus on the youngest, third generation, reinforcing factors preventing the development of professional burnout.

  • 2022 № 10 Mathematical prediction of the risks of iron deficiency in women

    Purpose. Based on the study of medico-social, medico-biological and psychological factors, to assess the risks of iron deficiency in women. The results obtained will be used to develop a relevant program for the prevention of iron deficiency anemia and latent iron deficiency in primary health care.
    Materials and methods. The medical and social study was conducted on the basis of the city polyclinics of Kazan, the samples included two groups of women: 394 patients with laboratory-confirmed iron deficiency, including its clinical manifestations, and 373 women with a confirmed absence of iron deficiency and without probable complaints. The following methods were used in the study: bibliographic, socio-hygienic, psychological testing, sociological, information-analytical, mathematical-statistical, organizational experiment.
    Results. New data have been established on the factors affecting the volume of tissue iron stores in women: statistically significant associations of serum ferritin with sleep quality parameters and carbohydrate intake. The risks of iron deficiency anemia and latent iron deficiency were assessed, and subranges for individual risk groups were calculated.
    Findings. Statistically significant associations were found in the ferritin-total protein model with late bedtime (p <0,001), discrete sleep patterns (p <0,001), situational anxiety (p <0,001), and daily sugar intake (p = 0,021). According to mathematical forecasting, the greatest influence on the development of IDA in women is “going to bed” (R=2,1). Women who go to bed after midnight and from 23.00 to midnight are at risk of iron deficiency anemia, the risk of which is 2 times higher than in women who fall asleep before 23.00. The probability of latent iron deficiency in women with a high level of personal and situational anxiety is 28–29 times higher than in women with a low level of anxiety (R=29,254 and R=28, respectively).

    The value and originality of the new organizational approach implemented in the Healthy Moscow program lies in the fact that mobile pavilions have been set up as part of a large-scale preventive examination of the population in convenient location accessibility – park areas, squares and recreation areas, which makes it possible to identify not only diseases at an early stages, but also risk factors among population groups who consider themselves healthy, as well as organize targeted promotion of a healthy lifestyle. During the period of the Healthy Moscow program, more than a million citizens underwent preventive examinations in the pavilions, and to a greater extent the population that, for a number of reasons, rarely visits polyclinics and who do not have pronounced symptoms of diseases. However,
    according to the results of the surveys, it was revealed that approximately 12% of the so-called healthy people have diseases.

  • 2019 № 4 Prevention of chronic non-infectious diseases prevention in Russia: possibilities of optimization

    Chronic non-communicable diseases (CNCD) remain the cause of three-fourths of deaths in Russia, but their control is not productive enough. Achieving of planned mortality reduction to 2025 among employable persons by 25,4%, from cardiovascular diseases – by 16,5% and from cancer – by 6% is possible only due to CNCD prevention. However, the costs on the «Centers of Health» activity are not justified from the point of view of their effectiveness, and dispanser- ization is not yet fully balanced in structure and volume. The analysis of some financial, organizational, methodological, legal and reporting documents makes will be it possible to identify problems and to offer systemic measures to optimize CNCD prevention.

    Children’s disability is an urgent medical and social problem of modern society, one of the main characteristics
    of public health and social well-being of the country. This article provides additional data on the main trends in primary
    childhood disability, depending on the age and type of injury, type of injury and a damaging factor; presents a medium-
    term prognosis of primary childhood disability due to injuries for the Kursk region. The types of psychological status of a
    family with a child with an injury are determined, and their effect on the implementation of measures for its rehabilitation in
    various types of injuries is studied. The results obtained indicate the importance of an individual approach to each specific
    family with a child with an injury, and the need for work aimed at achieving optimal treatment outcomes and preventing
    the formation of disability. A scheme has been developed for the interaction of various organizations and departments
    involved in the prevention of childhood injuries and the comprehensive rehabilitation of children with the consequences of
    injuries. A scheme of the relationship between the types of rehabilitation and the level of adaptation (somatic, psychological,
    socio-environmental) of children with the consequences of injuries under the age of 12 years is proposed.

  • 2021 № 5 Health centers – a tool for improving the prevention of chronic non-communicable diseases in the Russian Federation

    There are Health Centers in Russia that deal with the early diagnosis and prevention of risk factors for chronic non-communicable diseases (NCD).
    M a t e r i a l a n d m e t h o d s : the data of 9505 visitors who applied to the Health Centers of Tomsk were analyzed.
    Purpose to identify the most significant combinations of risk factors for the development of NCD among visitors to Health Centers.
    R e s u l t s : 70% of people had two or more behavioral risk factors. Two or more metabolic risk factors were identified in 37% of people. The prevalence of combinations of behavioral risk factors remains almost constant in all age groups, while the prevalence of metabolic risk factors significantly increases starting from the age of 30–34 years. The combination of physical inactivity and inappropriate nutrition is most significant for the development of high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia and excess body weight in persons under 30 years of age. Individuals under 30 years of age have a higher risk of developing coronary artery disease and diabetes in the presence of combinations of metabolic risk factors (excess body weight, increased blood pressure and hypercholesterolemia). The risk of developing hypertension, ischemic heart disease and diabetes mellitus significantly increases with an increase in BMI for each unit, starting from a BMI of 22 kg/m2. It is noteworthy that this is still within the normal range. The risk of developing hypertonic disease and coronary artery disease significantly increases with an increase in cholesterol for every 0.5
    mmol/l, starting from normal values.
    C o n c l u s i o n s : the primary goal of preventive measures should be persons under 30 years of age without metabolic risk factors and with a combination of behavioral factors.

    The value and originality of the new organizational approach implemented in the Healthy Moscow program lies in the fact that mobile pavilions have been set up as part of a large-scale preventive examination of the population in convenient location accessibility – park areas, squares and recreation areas, which makes it possible to identify not only diseases at an early stages, but also risk factors among population groups who consider themselves healthy, as well as organize targeted promotion of a healthy lifestyle. During the period of the Healthy Moscow program, more than a million citizens underwent preventive examinations in the pavilions, and to a greater extent the population that, for a number of reasons, rarely visits polyclinics and who do not have pronounced symptoms of diseases. However,
    according to the results of the surveys, it was revealed that approximately 12% of the so-called healthy people have diseases.

  • 2023 № 1 Economic effect of vaccination as an argument in explanatory work on vaccine prevention

    There is no doubt about the economic effect of vaccination. However, the relevant assessments have not yet become a convincing argument for the need for vaccination.
    P u r p o s e o f t h e s t u d y . Based on the results of the inventory of the existing domestic and foreign experience in determining the economic effect of vaccination, identifying management problems in the relevant explanatory work, propose other approaches on how to calculate the economic effect of vaccination and how to use this argument in explanatory work on vaccination.
    M a t e r i a l s a n d m e t h o d s . A comparative analytical assessment of domestic and foreign experience in the field of calculating the economic effect of vaccination has been carried out. It is analyzed what place the economic effect of vaccination has in explanatory work of state bodies on vaccination.
    R e s u l t s . It has been established that the insufficient effectiveness of explanatory work on vaccination is largely the result of an incorrect delineation of functions at different levels of government (municipal, regional, federal). Unreasonably large tasks in this area are assigned to the municipal level, while the federal level, on the contrary, turned out to be actually unreasonably exempted from solving the substantive tasks in the field of explanatory work on vaccine prevention. The analysis of foreign and domestic experience in determining the economic effect of vaccination confirmed the significance of the results, calculations, and estimates. The necessity of presenting the results of the
    assessment of the economic effect of vaccination in a simpler and more understandable form is substantiated. For this purpose, an assessment was made of what can give the economy in value terms 25 years of additional human life, which he received in the 20th century thanks, according to experts, to vaccination. The calculation of GDP per capita (according to Rosstat for 2021, in purchasing power parity) for 25 years of extra human life due to vaccination was carried out. The need to consider the issue of the advisability of paying people for vaccination is substantiated.
    F i n d i n g s . It is necessary to reconsider the traditional approaches to assessing the economic effect of vaccination. State and municipal authorities should update the tasks in the field of vaccination in order to increase its effectiveness.

  • 2016 № 2 The economical effectiveness of actions preventing the expansion of incidents of substance and alcohol abuse

    The analysis of economical effectiveness of preventative measures against substance and alcohol abuse in the Kostromskaya region between 2008–2012 years showed a presence of significant losses for the region’s economy, prompted by the population’s morbidity for drug and alcohol abuse among the young and employable population. There was noted a low level of financial provision of regional target-oriented programmes and a deficit in current financing of narcology service, what in turn makes the medical aid considerably less accessible. The level of achieved indicators for evaluating the effectiveness of the narcology service’s activity demonstrated that there is a significant retardment among the regions, included in the process of realization of the concept for modernizing the narcology service of the Russian Federation.
