Noh, Young-Hee ; Kim, Ki-Bong ;
The Journal of Pediatrics of Korean Medicine, volume 25, issue 3, 2011, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2011.25.3.001
Objectives: The purpose of this study is to investigate various treatments in other countries for nocturnal enuresis. We analyze the treatments on enuresis (within acupuncture, moxibustion, psychotherapy and chiropractic) and herb for 12 years (from 2000 to 2011). Methods: Databases include PubMed and Web of Science. To narrow the search, the following key search terms were used: 'enuresis, acupuncture', 'enuresis, moxibustion', 'enuresis, psychotherapy', 'enuresis, chiropractic' and 'enuresis, herb'. The search was limited to the publication date from 2000 to 2011. Results: There are 31 studies on enuresis treatment by using acupuncture, 3 on moxibustion, 91 on psychotherapy, and 8 on chiropractic. Among them, 27 studies on acupuncture, 3 on moxibustion, 86 on psychotherapy and 5 on chiropractic reveal that patients with enuresis benefit from the each treatment. Conclusions: In the future, various researches on acupoint are necessary. Especially, studies on enuresis by using psychotherapy and chiropractic are needed. With those efforts, treatments on enuresis will become more pragmatic and beneficial.

Results: 1. 77% of the participants didn't recognize the existence of Oriental childcare center. 49% of participants were informed by health center. 2. In terms of preferences on oriental versus western medicine, 76% of participants preferred western medicine as compared to the oriental medicine but, some wanted to use both medical treatments 3. Recognition levels in importance of childcare education on post-survey were significantly elevated to the pre-survey(p<0.05), and the childcare education helped parents to breed children better. Participants want to recommend neighbors to participate in childcare class. 4. Levels of common senses about childcare on post-survey were significantly elevated compared to pre-survey(p<0.05), but levels of common senses about oriental childcare were not elevated. 5. 77% of the participants satisfied with the childcare class. Conclusions: The oriental childcare class sessions in health center have helped parents to recognize the importance of childcare education and common senses about childcare.

DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2011.25.3.046
Objectives: The purpose of this study is to find a way to apply current oriental pediatrics treatment guidelines based on a pediatric herb chapter in Dong-eui-bo-gam. Methods: We classified herbs based on the four properties, five flavors, attributive channel, a dosage form of the medicine, diagnosis, toxicity and character. Results & Conclusions: The result of this study is that there were lots of things that we have to learn - characteristics of common herbs in pediatrics and pediatric diseases and pathology. From this study, we also learn about changes of pediatric physiology and pathology. More related studies can be helpful for updating the current oriental pediatric guidelines.
A Pilot Study for Analysis of Genetic and Environmental Factors on Final Adult Height
Choi, Min-Hyung ; Lee, Jin-Young ;
The Journal of Pediatrics of Korean Medicine, volume 25, issue 3, 2011, Pages 57~69
DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2011.25.3.057
Objectives: Purpose of this study is to analyze and to estimate which and how much genetic and environmental factors have affected on growth. Also, a method of final height prediction can be developed from this study results. Methods: Correlation analysis and categorical regression analysis were conducted between genetic and environmental factors correlated with the final adult height, through survey from 171 male. Results: Mid parental height, neonatal body weight, intake frequency of beef, chicken, milk, fruits and coffee, sleep quantity and quality during the elementary school and sleep quantity during the middle school have affected on the final adult height. And a regression equation with 0.494 for coefficient of determination was obtained. Conclusions: Mid-parental-height has the most affected on the final adult height. Among environmental factors, food and sleep have significantly affected, but exercise doesn't. Among foods, meal, beef, and milk intake have remarkably affected on the final height, and chicken and fruit also have affected in some degree, but coffee has affected badly. Among sleep habits, sleep quantity during the elementary school has the most affected, sleep quality during the elementary school and sleep quantity during the middle school also have affected in some degree on final height. The younger the age is, the more sleep have affected and sleep quantity have more affected than sleep quality. Neonatal weight also has remarkably affected on the final height. Through this analysis, the final adult height can be predicted using regression equation which covers 49.4% of genetic and environmental factors.

The Journal of Pediatrics of Korean Medicine, volume 25, issue 3, 2011, Pages 77~84
DOI : 10.7778/jpkm.2011.25.3.077
Objectives: This study was performed to investigate the effect of hot spring therapy on children weight, body composition and heart rate variability. Methods: The study was carried out from 30 children who visited the spa from August 1, 2011 to August 31, 2011. We measured the change of weight, body composition, and heart rate variability after hot spring therapy for an hour per day. Results: The subject was consisted of 13 boys and 17 girls. This study revealed that their weight got lost from a hot spring therapy, which was statistically significant. Their body mass index(BMI) was decreased in from a hot spring therapy, which was not statistically significant. Total body water, muscle, protein, and mineral were decreased from a hot spring therapy, which was statistically significant. We measured HRV(heart rate variability) before and after the hot spring therapy. The mean HRT was increased, which was statistically insignificant. SDNN(standard deviation of the NN interval) and RMSSD(square root of the mean of the sum of the square of differences) were not different before and after the hot spring therapy. ln TP was decreased insignificantly. ln VLF was not affected before and after hot spring therapy. ln LF and ln HF was decreased, LF norm was increased, and HF norm was decreased, which were not statistically significant. Also, LF/HF ratio was increased insignificantly. Conclusions: From these results, we concluded that the weight, total body water, muscle, protein, and mineral got lost from the hot spring therapy. However, the HRV was not affected from the hot spring therapy.
