One hundred different individuals were going to be used as subjects for the research. Univariate, bivariate, and multivariate analyses, in addition to the Chi square test, were utilized in order to analyze the data.According to the findings of the study, the p-value for the advocacy variable was found to be 0.000, while the values for the collaboration and communication variables were 0.001 and 0.002, respectively. This indicates that there is a connection between advocacy, teamwork, communication, and mentorship and the protection of gastroenteritis.

The objective of our study is to report the surgical management of severe abdominal trauma in a low-resource center. This was a 31-month observational study from January 2018 to August 2020. We have 44 cases of severe abdominal trauma. The sex ratio was 4.5. The mean age of patients with severe abdominal trauma was 31.43182 years. A penetrating wound to the abdomen was seen in 68.18%. The circumstance of the trauma was a liability accident in 70.45%. A shortened laparotomy was performed. The mean duration of the operation was 45.63636 minutes. No perioperative death was reported during the performance of the shortened laparotomy.

This study used an analytic observational study with a case control study design, designed to determine the risk and the effect of exposure duration on pulmonary TB transmission with a total sample of 72, bivariate analysis using the chi square test and calculating the odds ratio (OR). multivariate analysis using binary logistic regression test. The results of the study found that close contact is a risk factor for TB transmission with OR = 4.857; contact time is a risk factor for TB transmission with OR = 6.143; and length of contact are risk factors for TB transmission with OR = 5.857. The binary logistic regression equation shows that someone who lives in the same house with a patient with pulmonary tuberculosis, exposure time &gt; 8 hours/day and contact duration &gt; 6 months, has a probability of suffering from pulmonary TB by 30% compared to someone without risk factors. In conclusion, the closeness of contact, contact time and duration of contact are risk factors for pulmonary TB transmission.</em></p> Bellytra Talarima Copyright (c) 2023 Journal La Medihealtico 2023-05-26 2023-05-26 4 1 20 28 10.37899/journallamedihealtico.v4i1.793 Factors Influencing the Prevention of Hypertension in the Working Area of Martubung Health Center, Medan Labuhan District <p><em>The objective of the study was to identify the factors that influence the prevention of hypertension in the Martubung Public Health Center's service area in the Labuhan District of Medan.The research design employed a quantitative method that was implemented through an analytical survey employing the Cross Sectional Study methodology.
