RESULTS OF CREATION OF DATABASE FOR CHILDREN WITH PAROXYSMAL DISORDERS IN KHARKIV REGION AND PROSPECTS OF ITS APPLICATION
Kharkiv Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Kharkiv, Ukraine
Epilepsy is one of the most common diseases, leading to life limitation and social maladaptation in Ukraine. The search for new tools for studying and preventing the emergence of negative consequences of epilepsy is one of the most pressing tasks at the present time. In order to improve the provision of medical care and monitoring the status of children with paroxysmal conditions, a depersonalized register of the patients was created in the city of Kharkiv and Kharkiv region. From 2015, the register included 1,592 children who had undergone paroxysmal states of epileptic and other genesis (acute symptomatic attacks, febrile convulsions, respiratory paroxysms etc.). It has been shown that the register of children with epilepsy assists to improve the diagnostics, to prevent cases of false diagnosis, to identify the main etiological factors that can affect the disease course, to enhance the provision of medical care to patients, to estimate the number of patients receiving treatment and its effectiveness, to specify the economic costs of treatment and to monitor the patient's condition. As well this register makes it possible to improve the medical and social prognosis of the patients, the quality of their lives and lives of their families, to promote preventing the serious consequences of disease and disability.
