Evaluation of the Animated Cartoon-aided Teaching of Intranasal Corticosteroid Allergic Rhinitis

2015-10-09 10:23:24 | BioPortfolio


Correct methods and compliance of intranasal corticosteroid (INCS) is very important for the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR). The animated cartoon-aided teaching of INCS administration was created to decrease workload of health care professionals. The aim of this study is to compare the achievement of the children with AR in using INCS between the group which were instructed by animated cartoon-aided teaching or oral presentation without demonstration.


The study was a prospective randomized control trial in children aged 5 - 16 years with moderate to severe intermittent or persistent AR who had never used INCS. The patients were randomly divided into 2 groups; 1) Teaching how to use INCS by oral presentation and 2) by animated cartoon-aided teaching. Successful achievements were recorded when the patients were able to use INCS (all five-point checklists) correctly. If they were unable to use the INCS correctly after the first teaching, the same instruction would be repeated and the second assessment would be performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.

Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).

Conditional probability of exposure to a treatment given observed covariates.

The subject's ability to connect 25 numbered and lettered circles in sequence in a specific length of time. A score of 12 or below is suggestive of organic brain damage.
