Authors: Brima N, Samba TT, Yamba A, Barrett G, Stephenson J, Hall J Abstract New ways of measuring pregnancy planning/intention such as the London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy (LMUP), which recognise the complexity of the construct, are being adopted worldwide. The aim of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Krio version of the LMUP in Sierra Leone. An interviewer-administered version of the LMUP was translated into Krio and pre-tested with 12 pregnant women. Field testing involved 172 pregnant women aged 15-42, with 87 completing a re-test. Completion rates of LMUP items were 100%. LMUP...
Authors: Lee HA, Park B, Park EA, Cho SJ, Kim HS, Choi EJ, Kim NE, Park H Abstract BACKGROUND: Routine blood pressure (BP) measurement is recommended to begin at 3 years of age, but there are no national BP reference values for Korean children less than 7 years of age. Therefore, we developed sex-, age-, and height-specific BP reference values for non-overweight children aged 3-9 years. METHODS: We analyzed the data of 416, 340, 321, 323, and 332 subjects aged 3, 5, 7, 8, and 9 years, respectively, who participated in the Ewha Birth and Growth Cohort Study. BP percentile curves were generated using generalized ...
