Effect of the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness strategy on childhood mortality and nutrition in a rural area in Bangladesh: Meningitis is one of the most important infectious causes of neurodisability and death in childhood. It improves health-worker performance and leads to better quality of care and rational drug use at costs that 211 lower or similar to investments in routine child health services.

None of the above experts declared any conflict of interest. Children with anemia either clinical or laboratorymalnutrition, collagen omci or with metabolic disorders were excluded from the study. Global and regional mortality from causes of death for 20 age groups in and Results of a multi-country exploratory survey of approaches and methods for IMCI case management training.

He was brought 5 days later to another HF where he was admitted for the same diagnosis and died 4 days later see Fig 2. We chose to conduct the study in different health facilities rather than to use a parallel design or recruit consecutively patients in the same health facility because the omci increased the risk of including patients with different disease frequency between the intervention ALMANACH and routine practice arms due to seasonal variation.

The approach is designed for use in outpatient clinical settings with limited diagnostic chrt, limited medication and limited opportunities to practice complicated clinical procedure.


Its real impact, which should directly depend on the level of uptake and compliance by clinicians, needs to be precisely evaluated. A recent study from Egypt by Rakha et al. These 50 children divided into 2 groups: The objective of the present study was to measure the impact of its use on clinical outcome and antibiotic prescription in children attending primary care facilities in rural and urban settings of Tanzania. All children included in this study were subjected to complete history taking and clinical examination.

Also, children infected with resistant microorganisms are more likely to die [ 32 ]. The new algorithm was implemented in controlled conditions, which is a necessary step before implementation in routine conditions.

On the contrary, we observed a better cure rate iimci ALMANACH, probably because clinicians were able to better identify and treat children with possible bacterial infection. This mortality impact is plausible, since substantial improvements occurred in quality of care provided to sick children in health facilities implementing IMCI.

In addition, the community health workers imfi could not be used for classification of pneumonia because in the control arm, they do not assess and classify pneumonia symptoms.

Complications Of the children managed with ALMANACH, one child with likely viral infection on day 0 was brought by the caretaker on day 5 to a referral hospital where he was diagnosed with cellulitis. The primary outcome measures were: Distribution of the outcome after treatment to time of diagnosis in IMCI approach. During the one-month pilot phase, study clinicians in the Lmci arm received face-to-face supervision with several real patients to check their ability to identify all relevant signs, including RR measurement.

The IMCI clearly offers several benefits to children in areas where it char implemented. The study was part of PeDiAtrick project which aimed to improve the quality of health care and rational use of medicines for children in Tanzania.

The overuse of antimalarials was limited, but varying degrees of antibiotics over-prescription were observed [ 18 ]. Ninety percent of reported cases occur below 5 years of age. He was hospitalized for 10 days, received antibiotics and had recovered when visited on day Cost implications of improving the quality of child care using integrated clinical algorithms: This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.

According to IMCI classification, children with active measles were classified as measles, measles with eye and xhart complications, or severe complicated measles.

The highest fever is recorded in children less than 2 years of age.

In a recent study by Kalyango et al. Some children in this group were subjected to chest x-ray when pneumonia was suspected, lumbar puncture and CSF analysis when meningitis was suspected. The assignments to multiple classifications may represent misclassifications or may accurately reflect the presence of more than one clinical problem e. The only safe and rational solution is thus to evaluate them again when they do not improve. Many children fulfilled the criteria for several different IMCI classifications.
