Policy and strategy in the field of health protection


PUMTS. 2021; 41(1): 5-9.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed all aspects of life and learning in the world and in Ukraine. Quarantine restrictions made it impossible to conduct the educational process in medical universities by traditional methods (oral and written questioning, testing, attending lectures, participation in clinical trials and operations), which led to the restructuring of the educational process and the transition to distance learning. The aim of the work was to highlight the features of the organization of distance learning in higher medical institutions of Ukraine during the pandemic on the example of I. Horbachevsky Ternopil National Medical University. Learning management systems (LMSs) use the online learning platform Moodle to effectively conduct distance learning. Due to the dynamism, modularity, flexibility of this platform, students have continuous access to educational materials, undergo current and final test control of the level of knowledge acquisition and preparation for the exam Step-1, Step-2. The online service Microsoft Teams allows teachers and students to communicate in real time, conduct video lectures, discussions, surveys, control of students’ self-preparation, increase the motivational component of training by creating creative questions in Forms, running marathons and others. A high-quality distance learning process requires its digitization and informatization, teamwork of teachers and students, changing the role of the teacher as a mentor and coordinator, increasing the motivational component by introducing creative approaches to learning.

    The primary task of higher medical education in Ukraine today is to provide health care facilities, competitive — able, staff with fundamental knowledge. The competent component of the applicant for higher education, first of all, involves the introduction of updated approaches to the educational process. When studying the component “Pediatric Surgical Dentistry ” one of the most difficult to perceive, but very important is the topic of “Congenital malformations”. Experience shows that difficulties arise in mastering practical material. With this in mind, the aim of our work was to optimize the teaching of the component “Pediatric Surgical Dentistry” aimed at forming a competency component in higher education. When teaching the topic, first of all, you should focus on the relevance of the problem. In addition, in order to master the material in the process of practical training, we use interactive teaching methods: brainstorming, case method, presentations, role-playing and business games. To systematize the theoretical knowledge of students obtained in a practical lesson on this topic, lecture material is taught, the content of which is scientifically sound and supplemented by a multimedia presentation. To ensure a balance between theoretical and practical parts of higher education training on the basis of the department created and operates a regional diagnostic and counseling center for children with congenital and acquired disabilities, whose experience and experience is an additional source of methodological support of the educational process. Our data and teaching methods aimed at obtaining the necessary knowledge and practical skills of applicants to study the part “Congenital malformations” indicate the prospects for their implementation, as it further creates the basic prerequisites for further research to optimize the learning process to form competencies in accordance with educational-professional program.

    Local injectable anesthesia is widely used in modern dentistry. First of all, the purpose of anesthesia in the practice of the doctor is to relieve the patient’s emotional stress and eliminate pain during the procedure. According to the classical position of N. E. Vvedensky, local anesthetics affect the functional state of the nerve, changing its conductivity and excitability. With the help of questionnaires we conducted a survey of 65 patients aged 18 to 75 years who sought medical help at the regional dental center in Poltava. The results of a questionnaire of doctors on the use of local anesthetics in dental practice were also analyzed. With the help of laboratory methods of examination of oral fluid, a decrease in the rate of salivation, saliva pH, leukocyte migration rate was determined. The purpose of the survey was to identify the frequency of manifestations of various allergic reactions to drugs in patients. All patients were systematized by age and comorbidities, which further affected their distribution. The distribution of patients by risk groups (allergy history) allowed to assess the prevalence of allergic diseases depending on age and sex. Particular attention was paid to elderly and senile patients, as their condition is characterized by a decrease in compensatory and adaptive capabilities. Patients with somatic pathology and persons with multiple foci of chronic odontogenic infection should be classified as at risk for the development of allergic reactions to local anesthetics, which should be taken into account when performing local injection anesthesia on an outpatient basis. It should be remembered that concomitant pathology affects the choice of anesthetic and can determine the development of toxic reactions during local injection anesthesia in the head and neck. This category of patients requires dentists to take a more responsible approach to collecting medical history and taking preventive measures to prevent the development of allergic and toxic reactions to local anesthetics.

    The formation of medical statistical information and the effectiveness of statistical records of diseases of the upper respiratory tract, ear and mastoid process in children on the basis of the current International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10). The relevance of the analysis of the completeness and effectiveness of statistical records of the incidence of diseases of the upper respiratory tract, ear and mastoid process is substantiated. It is established that the reporting of the incidence of the child population on upper respiratory tract, ear and mastoid process is carried out in accordance with the headings of the ICD-10 revision. The requirements of the ICD-11 revision do not make significant changes in the statistical records. Features of statistical records of diseases of the upper respiratory tract, ear and mastoid process on the basis of the modern classifier of diseases — ICD-10 are shown and characterized. The shortcomings of statistical records of diseases of the ear and mastoid process in children in terms of clinical assessment of cases. The reasons of probable underestimation of statistical indicators of incidence of diseases of the upper respiratory tract in this category of patients are analyzed. The presence of differences in the formation of groups of statistical accounting of the incidence of the ear, nose and throat organs in children during the analysis of statistical trends has been proved. It is concluded that this contributes to the inaccuracy of accounting and data analysis, which hinders the development of adequate management decisions. It is shown the expediency of developing indicators, bringing into line the criteria for the formation of age groups for statistical records and creating a single register of nosology for such records at different levels.

    The review presents current literature data in the study of the clinical and pathogenetic value of adipose tissue hormones. Scientists have been able to establish that adipose tissue is actively involved in metabolism, bone formation, blood coagulation, immunity regulation, inflammation, thermoregulation and many others. Adipokines are hormones of adipose tissue, are a kind of cytokines and are of great clinical and pathogenic importance in the development of chronic diseases such as: obesity, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and cardiovascular diseases. Today we face a pandemic of chronic noncommunicable diseases, which is not only a medical but also a socio-economic problem. The modern concepts of regulation of adipokine production and their potential role in the processes of atherogenesis, development of insulin resistance, cardiovascular pathology and chronic kidney disease are considered in the article. Despite the large number of papers devoted to this problem, their results are controversial and ambiguous. Further studies are needed to determine the role of adipokines in the regulation of lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, influence on blood pressure, atherogenesis, albuminuria, coagulation, insulin resistance. The study of adipokines has a great potential for adaptation in clinical practice to assess the prognostic role of adipokine levels in relation to the risk of complications from the cardiovascular system, the endocrine system and the risk of metabolic syndrome.

    Fungi of Candida genus belong to the pathogenic microflora of the oral cavity. Chronic candidiasis often occurs in the elderly and elderly with low reactivity, who use removable plastic prostheses (mainly atrophic form of candidiasis stomatitis) or in patients who use antibiotics, oral contraceptives, cytostatic drugs, corticosteroids.
    Treatment of patients in the study group was considered effective in achieving positive results in the clinical picture of the disease and microbiological examination one month after the end of general and combined local therapy.
    Our proposed combination topical antifungal therapy was performed as part of a comprehensive treatment for chronic candidiasis. General treatment included dieting, elimination of background pathology, and use of antifungal, hyposensitizing, immunobiological, and vitamin therapy. Local therapy of patients with atrophic and hyperplastic forms of chronic candidiasis stomatitis consisted in the application of the scheme developed at the department of therapeutic dentistry of UMSA, where several groups of antifungal agents are prescribed, which change throughout the day and course of treatment.

    Currently, the incidence of tonsillitis in children is very common and represents a serious medical and social problem. In young children, viral tonsillitis predominates, while bacterial tonsillitis is more common between the ages of 5–15. The frequency of registration of infection with viruses of the herpes group, including the human herpes virus (HHV) type 6, is increasing. The healing processes in infectious pathology are primarily due to the balanced work of the cellular and humoral links of the body’s immune response, the state of which can be influenced by concomitant infection with herpes viruses. The aim of the work was to study the cellular immune response of children with tonsillitis infected with HHV-6 type. The study of the influence of HHV-6 infection on the state of the cellular component of the immune response in 74 children with tonsillitis in the acute period and in the period of convalescence was carried out. All patients were diagnosed with a moderate form of tonsillitis; the etiological factor was hemolytic streptococcus group A. It was revealed that in children with mono-infection at the onset of the disease, there is a moderate response of cellular immunity (t = 2.76), while the presence of HHV-6 infection leads to more pronounced changes in the parameters of CD lymphocytes (t = 4.06). We found a significant increase in the content of CD16+-lymphocytes in tonsillitis of streptococcal etiology, but the maximum growth was recorded in patients with mono-infection (p < 0.05). By the time of convalescence, complete recovery of T-lymphocytes in infected HHV-6 patients does not occur. The degree of deviation from the standard for the entire complex of CD-lymphocytes during the period of convalescence was more pronounced in patients with co-infection (t = 2.83). The obtained data indicate the suppression of the cellular component of the immune response in patients with tonsillitis against the background of HHV-6 infection, which requires a differentiated approach to treatment and medical supervision of such patients.

    The article is devoted to the history of the formation and development of the Department of Orthopedic Dentistry 1 Kharkiv Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education. The department was officially established in 1930 as the department of odontologists at the All-Ukrainian Institute for Advanced Medical Studies. Since 1931, the department became known as the dental department and dentists began to improve their qualifications in the department. In September 1941, the department ceased its work. In 1958, the department resumes work. Since 1959, the Ukrainian Institute of Advanced Medical Studies at the Department of Dentistry created an assistant professor specialization course for orthopedic and orthodontic doctors. In 1965 for the first time in the history of the institute, a separate department was created for the teaching of orthopedic dentistry, headed by M.A. Napadov.
    The staff of the department under the guidance of prof. M.A. Napadov Developed the main domestic structural and auxiliary dental materials.
    From 1992 to 1995 – he was in charge of the candidate sciences A.P. Golubnichy. From 1995 the department is headed by a doctor of medical sciences, professor Grizodub V.I.
    Is head of the department of Professor V.I. Grizodub: 12 candidate dissertations were defended and approved by Candidate of Medical Sciences (I. Dnistransky, I. Isakov, L. Ivanishchenko, K.V.
