  • This study aimed to investigate the determinants of patients satisfaction and intent to revisit oriental medical hospitals. The level of overall patient satisfaction was used as an intervening variable and the level of intent to revisit was used as a dependent variable. The sample used in this study consisted of 578 patients from 3 oriental medical hospitals located in Chungnam Province. Data were collected from October 2014 to December 2014 with a structured and self-administrated questionnaire and analysed using path analysis. The results of the study indicate that oriental medical hospitals should make an effort to improve the overall satisfaction of patients, in the case of outpatient, especially focusing on the doctors' service and medical procedure, and in the case of inpatient, especially focusing on the facilities convenience, medical price and hospital ward life which will lead to high level of intent to revisit of patients.

  • Neuroleptic malignant syndrome(NMS) is an acute, potentially fatal, idiosyncratic reaction to neuroleptic medication. Early recognition and intensive care are crucial. An important issue is whether NMS will recur after initial recovery and subsequent use of neuroleptic medication. The authors presented with a male adolescent who had suffered a bipolar disorder manic episode and been taking clozapine after recovering from MNS. He had been admitted into a psychiatric ward once before and similarly diagnosed. On the second admission, he showed muscle rigidity, autonomic instability, mild fever, severe diaphoresis, and altered mental status on the fourth hospital day following a haloperidol injection. He was diagnosed with NMS, according to the clinical signs and laboratory data. After the use of antipsychotics was discontinued, he was moved to intensive care unit and given dantrolene. His condition began to improve about 48 hours after the onset of NMS. Due to manic behavior, he returned to the psychiatric ward. On the 21 st hospital day, clozapine was administered to counter the manic symptoms. The final dose was 350mg and showed good remission signs without further recurrence of NMS.

  • Purpose : Heart failure (HF) is considered an important medical burden with rehospitalization and mortality. Anemia is a major risk factor associated with the severity of HF. To improve the understanding of the impact of anemia in the population with HF, we explored the prevalence of anemia, its guidelines, relationship between anemia and mortality or rehospitalization, and limitation of reviewed papers of various populations with HF. Method: We used Whittemore and Knafl's integrative review methodology (2005), and thirty research papers were analyzed. PubMed, CINAHL, Cochrane, PsychInfo, Embase, Web of Science were searched for papers published between January 1960-June 2018. Results: Anemia in individuals with HF was primarily defined using the World Health Organization guideline. The prevalence of anemia in patients with HF varied from 9% to 56.7%. Moreover, such a condition significantly increases the prevalence of mortality or rehospitalization in patients with HF. The analyzed majority were non-prospective cohort study including secondary data analysis. Conclusion: Anemia in individuals with HF is a significant risk factor of mortality and rehospitalization. Prospective cohort studies should be designed to identify the optimal value for screening anemia and the impact of anemia on rehospitalization and mortality among HF patients.

  • 담관 낭종은 흔하지는 않지만, 외과적 절제가 필요한 주요 질환이다. 절제하지 않고 남겨두면 다른 질환으로의 이환이나 다양한 합병증에 의한 사망까지도 야기할 수 있기 때문에 적절한 수술적 치료가 필수적이다. 최근 수술에 따른 다양한 문제들이 계속 보고되고 있으며, 출생 전이나 건강 검진 시 발견되는 무증상의 담관 낭종의 수술 시기에 대해서도 아직 논란이 되고 있다. 저자들은 1995년부터 2009년까지 담관 낭종으로 수술 받은 환자 중 수술 받을 당시의 연령이 18세 이하인 32명 환자의 임상 양상과 수술 기록을 후향적으로 분석하여, 수술 성적에 영향을 주는 요인들을 알아보고자 하였다. 전체 32명 중 남자 10명, 여자 22명이었으며, 수술 당시의 평균 연령은 5.4세였다. 췌담관 합류이상은 9명(28.1%)이었으며, 평균 추적 관찰 기간은 34.6개월이었다. 술 전 증상을 호소한 환자는 30명(93.8%)이었으며, 복통(63.3%), 황달(40.0%), 구토(23.3%), 복부종물(16.7%), 발열(16.7%)등의 순서였다. 술 전 혈액 검사에서 AST/ALT의 상승이 18명(56.3%), 고빌리루빈혈증이 8명, 백혈구 증가증이 7명(21.9%)이었다. 술 후 합병증은 5명(15.6%)에서 나타났는데, 2명은 담관염이었고, 나머지 3명은 문합부 협착, 술 후 출혈, 장 폐쇄가 각각 1명 있었다. 술 후 평균 재원 기간은 12.2일 이었으며, 추적 관찰 기간 중 3명(9.0%)이 재입원 하였다. 수술 성적에 영향을 미치는 요인으로, 수술 당시의 나이가 많을수록 평균 수술 시간과 재원 기간이 증가하였다(p=0.004, p=0.028). 증상이 있었던 환자군에서 무증상 환자군보다 재원 기간이 더 길었다(p=0.001). 또한 췌담관 합류이상이 있었던 환자군에서 재입원율이 유의하게 높았다(p=0.005). 소아의 담관 낭종은 진단이 되면 증상 발현 전이라도 조기에 수술하는 것이 수술 시간 및 재원 기간을 단축시킬 수 있으며, 췌담관 합류이상이 동반된 경우에는 술 후에 재입원할 가능성이 높으므로 주의깊게 추적 관찰하는 것이 바람직할 것이다.

  • This study to analyze differences of cancer patient's health utilizations in medical aid program and national health insurance by analysing health insurance claims data, and identify effects of health care systems. The majors results of the research were as follows. First, cancer patients in medical aid program more used total medical expenditures than in national health insurance mostly by many outpatient visits and long term hospitalization. Second, results of multiple regression, cancer patients in medical aid program more used total expenditures and inpatient expenditures. But, outpatient expenditures weren't different, cancer patients in medical aid program more visited medical institutions and hospitalized long term periods than in national health insurance. Therefore, it is too early to conclude that moral hazard is in health utilizations of medical aid program, because cancer patients in medical aid program many use in benefits for many nonbenefit burdens.

  • The purpose of this study is to analyze the difference of medical care between medical assistance and health insurance patients to evaluate the increase of medical care costs due to the moral hazard of medical care patients and to provide a basis for rational medical care policy decision. For this purpose, we compared health insurance benefit data for Seoul citizens by gender, age, and type of medical institutions. The results of the analysis are as follows. First, all of the hospitalized and outpatient use of the advanced general Hospitals, medical assistance patients were less than those of the health insurance patients, so that the medical assistance patients could not use the high cost medical services. Second, in general hospitals, patients with health insurance are often hospitalized. On the other hand, medical assistance patients use a lot of outpatient services because they are less burdened. Third, in hospitals and clinics, medical benefits patients often use inpatient and outpatient services. Therefore, medical assistance patients are likely to use unnecessary medical care of outpatient and hospitalization clinics and hospitals, outpatient of general hospitals. But, in hospitalization and outpatient use in advanced general hospitals and medical assistance patients can not use due to excessive medical burden. Therefore, the policy to reduce the burden of medical expenses for patients with severe illness will continue, and the medical care patients using clinics and hospitals should be careful not to use unnecessary medical services.

  • Purpose : To determine clinical features, laboratory findings and cardiac abnormalities of highdose immune globulin(IVIG) retreatment in patients with Kawasaki disease, and to report effectiveness of retreatment. Methods : Retrospective study of 174 children diagnosed with Kawasaki disease at Ewha Mokdong hospital from March, 1999 to July, 2001. Results : Twenty(11.5%) of 174 patients were retreated with high-dose IVIG. After this, only two patients(1.1%) did not respond to IVIG retreatment. Patients with failure to respond to initial IVIG did not differ from the patients who responded to a single course of IVIG in sex, age, days of fever at initial IVIG and clinical characteristics. Compared with responders with single IVIG treatment, the patients who were retreated had significantly lower albumin(3.7 vs 3.4 g/dL, P < 0.05), higher ALT(118.2 vs 229.3 U/L, P < 0.05) and CRP(8.9 vs 13.3 mg/dL, P < 0.05). On echocardiography, patients who recieved IVIG retreatment were significantly more likely to have caronary abnormalities(45.0% vs 13.6%, P < 0.05). Conclusion : Retratment with IVIG for persistent or recurrent fever was safe and effective.
