This difficulty has detected in the first years of his school stage at the time the child undertakes his first steps of reading, omitting or replacing some syllables with others; It has also reflected in writing since learning has not fully assimilated and is carried out with great difficulty. Given this, it is necessary for teachers to adopt measures or strategies that help to reduce this disorder, always relying on the diagnoses and guides of the specialists.</p> 2019-09-03T06:18:44+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijhs/article/view/344 Effects of health promotion with family approaches on blood pressure and headache toward elderly 2019-12-15T17:46:25+00:00 I Wayan Mustika wayankayunan@gmail.com Ketut Sudiantara sudiantara19@yahoo.com <p style="text-align: justify;">The study aimed at looking at the effect of health promotion with a family approach to lowering blood pressure and headaches for elderly. This research was an experimental study with a randomized pretest and posttest control group design (in the form of a community trial). The research was conducted for four months from June to September 2018 in Selemadeg Subdistrict, Tabanan. The sampling technique was random sampling. The sample number on the treatment group and control group were 590 people. Data analysis used the Mann-Whitney test and Wilcoxon sign rank test was a significance level of p-value &lt;0.05. The results showed on the treatment group before and after the intervention was obtained the p-value = 0.0001 on systolic and diastolic pressure data as well as the headache level. P-value &lt;0.05 showed there were significant differences before and after health promotion with a family approach. The conclusion that there was an effect of health promotion with family approach to blood pressure and headache in the elderly. It was suggested the health workers promote more promotion of the healthy living community movement through health counseling and distributing brochures to the community including a balanced menu and exercise. Therefore, the healthy, productive, and prosperous elderly were realized.</p> 2019-10-15T10:14:33+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijhs/article/view/345 Critical assessment of paradigms in the study of decision making on sport 2019-12-15T17:46:25+00:00 Amaya Castillo Caurel amaya.castillo@nauta.cu José Ignacio Ruiz Sánchez jose.ruiz61182@gmail.com <p style="text-align: justify;">In this critical assessment of the decision-making process in sport some ideas are clarified around an issue addressed in recent times. To this end, different perspectives are addressed: cognitive paradigm and ecological paradigm with the intention of referring, from a critical point of view, both to their convergences and to their theoretical divergences. A critical assessment is made on their object of study, the theories on which they are based, as well as the fundamental indicators and concepts they handle, based on the study conducted by García, Araujo, Carvalho &amp; Del Villar (2011). Bear in mind that both constitute ways of understanding and explaining the decision process to improve sports performance. Finally, the need to recognize the athlete's behavior as a complex system is exposed, where adaptation with time deficit is of vital importance. It is urged to overcome the vision of each approach in terms of finding convergent points, in an attempt to maximize the best of both perspectives.</p> 2019-10-15T11:24:41+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijhs/article/view/348 Radiation dosage distribution in area room CT scan multi slice 64 to dose limit value 2019-12-15T17:46:24+00:00 Ni Nyoman Ratini nymratini@unud.ac.id I Made Yuliara imdyuliara@unud.ac.id Ni Luh Putu Trisnawati trisnawati@unud.ac.id <p style="text-align: justify;">An analysis of the distribution of radiation doses in the area of ??CT Scan Multi-Slice 64 has been carried out in Sanglah Hospital Denpasar. The study was conducted by dividing the area around the room into 8 regions and paths that indicate the distance from the wall to the surveillance. Measurements were made at several points at intervals of 1 m. Each point is taken three times the data collection. From the results of the distribution analysis it was found that there was an increase in the radiation dose rate to the Dose Limit Value (DLV) with a significance level below 0.05 occurring in region C with an average dose rate of 142.32 µSv/h, region E with an average value of an average of 111.36 µSv/h and area D with an average value of 40.68 µSv/h which has a value above the DLV. Whereas the value of the dose rate of other regions is below the DLV. Areas with a 25 cm transverse brick type barrier wall that has a 2 m window above have an average dose rate of 129.55 µSv/h, a 5 cm wooden door with a 2 mm Pb layer has an average dose rate of 67, 91 ?Sv/h.</p> 2019-10-26T04:20:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijhs/article/view/320 High-risk sexual behavior among dakocan (female coffee seller) 2019-12-15T17:46:24+00:00 Iwan Saka Nugraha saka.nugraha1@gmail.com <p style="text-align: justify;">HIV/AIDS cases among female sex workers in Buleleng regency was suspected related to the increasing number of indirect sex workers. Coffee sellers named dakocan who are not only selling coffee, or various food but also providing alcoholic drink and sexual service.&nbsp; This study aimed to provide an overview of high-risk sexual behavior among dakocan and its determinants. The study applied a mixed-method design. First of all, the survey was conducted among 64 respondents. 14 confirmed that they were also providing sexual services who were further interviewed more deeply to know the sexual behavior related to high risk of HIV transmission. Quantitative analysis the respondents were having poor knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS (59.38%) and not a serious disease (62,50%) and 59.38 %having a low perception ,as much as 67,19% respondents perceived that they are having a high-risk variables that are significant low perception toward benefits of using condoms (95%CI=0.002-0.759; p=0.032), experience in undergoing HIV/AIDS examination (95%CI=1.039-182.903; p=0.047). These findings are supported by the qualitative interview. The government program is required to change dakocan behavior by providing preventive services including more campaigns in the importance of condoms.</p> 2019-11-08T03:26:59+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijhs/article/view/369 Laterality and pre-reading processes at an early age 2019-12-15T17:46:23+00:00 Liza María Cedeño Cedeño itspem.mcedeno@gmail.com Telly Yarita Macías Zambrano itspem.tmciasr@gmail.com Julio César Zevallos Rengifo itspem.mcedeno@gmail.com Karla Mercedes Mendoza Loor itspem.mcedeno@gmail.com <p style="text-align: justify;">Preschool ages are vital to the processes related to the acquisition and consolidation phases of defined laterality in children who will take advantage of this dimension to obtain favorable results in their academic performance and neuropsychological development. In this research, we intend to analyze the relationship between laterality at an early age and the construction of pre-reading processes through application programs and specific tests (such as the Martin Lobo adapted test); The sample of the same corresponds to 10 children attending the Children's Center of Good Living "Caritas Felices". In conclusion, it managed to demonstrate the impact of stimulation on interhemispheric interconnection and pre-reading processes. As part of the intervention program, both educators of the children's center and parents pledged to participate in a laterality training program in order to prevent and intervene in subsequent neuropsychological problems.</p> 2019-11-27T06:46:49+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
