Background: Hypotension after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery is common. Previous studies have demonstrated that a crystalloid fluid " coload " (rapid administration of a fluid bolus starting at the time of intrathecal injection) is superior to the conventional crystalloid preload (fluid administered before the intrathecal injection) for preventing hypotension. However there is paucity of study on the effectiveness or otherwise of coloading as against the common practice of crystalloid preloading for ceaserian section under subarachnoid block. This study compared crystalloid preloading to coloading in preventing hypotension usually associated with subarachnoid block for ceaserian section Methods: In this double-blind study, 60 patients were randomly assigned to receive a preload of 1L of normal saline over a period of 15–20 min before initiation of spinal anesthesia or an identical fluid (bolus of normal saline) starting at the time of identification of cerebrospinal fluid. Vasopressors (ephedrine) were administered if systolic arterial blood pressure decreased less than 80% of the baseline pressure and <100 mm Hg. The primary outcome was the incidence of hypotension (defined as the administration of at least one dose of vasopressor). Other complications like nausea and vomiting were also sought for. Results: There was no significant difference in the two groups in the incidence of hypotension (p= 0.823), nausea and vomiting and vasopressor requirements. Conclusion: There is no difference in the incidence of hypotension whether patients were coloaded or preloaded.

Introduction: Diabetes Healthcare Providers (DHPs) are notable advocates of increased Physical Activity (PA) as a veritable means of preventing type 2 diabetes mellitus and related noncommunicable diseases. However, the extent to which the DHPs themselves comply with this important lifestyle habit is not known. Aim: To evaluate PA and sedentary living among DHPs in Nigeria and identify some determinants of PA in this population. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, PA was assessed using the short form of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ-SF). Besides socio-demographic and anthropometric indices, participants were asked about frequency and duration of engagements in vigorous PA, moderate PA, walking and average sitting time, in the past 7 days. Data were analysed using Chi-square, t-test, Spearman’s test of correlation and logistic regression statistics on SPSS version 23. Results: One hundred and eight subjects (63% males), with a mean age of 42.1±7.7 years, participated in the study. Although 86% of the participants were adjudged physically active, the intensity of PA was low in 52.8% and 74.1% did not meet the World Health Organisation recommended target for adequate PA. A significant negative correlation was observed between intensity of PA and Body Mass Index (BMI) while sitting time positively correlated with BMI. BMI ≥25 kg/m2 and higher professional cadre were significant independent predictors of low PA. Conclusion: Nearly three-quarter of DHPs in Nigeria do not engage in sufficient PA. This observation calls to question their ascribed status as role models of healthy lifestyles and may portend increased health risks among this important group of healthcare workforce. There is a significant inverse relationship between PA and BMI as well as professional cadre.

Ukpong, D, Ibigbami O.  2021.  Correlates of Quality of Life in Caregivers of Patients with Schizophrenia and Bipolar Affective Disorder: A Study From Southwestern Nigeria, 2021/04/01. 32:26-32. Abstract

Objective:Quality of life and its correlates were studied in two groups of family caregivers of patients with major mental disorders-Schizophrenia (SZ) and Bipolar Affective Disorder (BPAD).
Method:
Family caregivers of SZ and BPAD patients were consecutively recruited to the study (n=100 for each group). Caregivers were screened for quality of life (QOL) measures, caregiver burden, symptoms of anxiety and depression, using the World Health Organization Quality of Life Scale (WHOQOL-BREF), the Pai and Kapur Family Burden Interview Schedule (FBIS) and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Inventory (HADS) respectively.
Results:
When compared to the caregivers of the BPAD patients, the caregivers of the SZ patients had lower QOL scores in two out of the 4 WHOQOL-BREF domains (physical and psychological domains) (p=0.001), and higher overall total caregiver burden (p=0.001). On the other hand, caregivers of the BPAD patients had higher levels of depressive symptoms (p=0.001). Increased depressive symptoms were associated with lower QOL for both groups, comprising all WHOQOLBREF domains for BPAD and 3 domains for SZ caregivers. Higher caregiver burden was associated with lower QOL for both groups.
Conclusion:
There is a need for intervention and caregiver support for the relatives of patients with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
