The Odon device represents a promising novel way to potentially prevent these deaths and improve obstetrical outcomes for both mother and baby. In complicated deliveries, the device is positioned against the baby’s scalp and the lubricated sleeve is gently inserted around the baby’s head. Once a marker on the device indicates that it has been positioned properly, the inner compartment of the sleeve is inflated, providing a strong grip on the baby’s head. The inserter is taken away and the sleeve can be pulled with up to 19 kg (42 lb) of force to pull out the head and allow for delivery of the baby.</p> 2020-10-06T06:29:02+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PREVENTIVE AND PUBLIC HEALTH SCIENCES Cancer SEEK: Novel Approach 2020-10-06T06:57:24+00:00 S Karpagalatha <p>Cancer SEEK is a non-invasive blood test that can be used to screen for multiple common types of cancer in asymptomatic apparently healthy individuals. It can detect eight common cancer types through assessment of the levels of circulating proteins and mutations in cell-free DNA. The majority of localized cancers can be cured by surgery alone without any systemic therapy. Once distant metastasis has occurred; however, surgical excision is rarely creative. There is a wide window of opportunity to detect cancer before the onset of metastasis. Early detection of cancer is key to reducing cancer deaths offers crucial buying time for patients to take advantage of timely therapy and treatment.</p> 2020-10-06T06:57:24+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PREVENTIVE AND PUBLIC HEALTH SCIENCES Association of Anaemia and Intestinal Worm Infection among School going Children 2020-10-06T07:07:08+00:00 O R Jeff Walter Rajadurai M Somasundaram S Rashmi S Karthick Raja Ashima Joseph B Ibrahim Nasurlsha <p>Intestinal worm infections are more prevalent throughout the tropics and subtropics. In many parts of the developing world, these parasitic worms and anemia are of considerable public health and social importance as they directly affect the performance of these children in their respective schools. Hence, this article relates the association of anemia and the parasitic worms, the methods of early diagnosis, and the ways to manage it.<br><br></p> 2020-10-06T07:07:08+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PREVENTIVE AND PUBLIC HEALTH SCIENCES
