. This is to prevent the filters within the drip chamber becoming wet which could affect the efficiency of the drainage ( ). It is the responsibility of the neurosurgeon to give instructions on the level at which the drain is to be set or the amount of drainage required each hour and document in the patient’s medical records. The level of the ventricles must be estimated to create a zero reference point: Draw an imaginary line between the outer aspect of the child’s eye and the external auditory meatus (...) records. If the EVD continues to not drain, the child may need to return to theatre for a new drain to be inserted. The frequency of observations increased (every fifteen minutes may be required dependant on the child's neurological status). Any changes in neurological status must be highlighted to the neurosurgical team promptly. Drain management: fluid and electrolyte balance CSF contains approximately 120mmol/l of sodium. The child should have their electrolytes measured regularly, daily if losses

involvement such as bulging fontanelle or seizures. Focal syndromes such as pneumonia, bone or joint infection, cellulitis, or adenitis often have findings that point to the site of infection. Osteomyelitis frequently is insidious and may not be associated with fever. Complications are common for meningitis and can include neurodevelopment impairment, hearing loss, persistent seizure disorders, or cerebrovascular disease.

that stores and releases intracellular iron. Body iron stores are regulated at the level of intestinal iron absorption, as there are no physiologic processes for the excretion of excess iron other than blood loss via menses or sloughing of senescent intestinal mucosal or epidermal cells ( ). Hepcidin, a 25-amino acid peptide produced mainly in the liver, is considered the key regulator of iron stores by inhibiting of iron absorption ( ). Primary iron overload disorders are defined as inherited conditions (...) in the broad way it can present clinically ( ). Fatigue and arthralgias are the most common symptoms encountered early in the disease ( ). However, up to 18% of men and 5% of women may have hepatic iron overload in the absence of clinical symptoms ( ). Disease manifestations usually occur earlier in men than in women, most commonly in the fourth to fifth decades of life ( ). In women, clinical symptoms usually appear after postmenopause, due to iron loss during menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation

to 2050, the proportion of the global population aged 60 years and over will nearly double. 1 Many of these people are likely to experience losses in their health, including developing multimorbidities, and to live in low- and middle-income settings. At the same time, the world has united around the United Nations 2030 agenda for sustainable development. This pledges that no one will be left behind and that every human being will have the opportunity to fulfil their potential with dignity and equality (...) and the services within them are designed – to ensure care is of high quality, integrated, affordable, accessible and centred on the needs and rights of older people. 3 Integrated care, particularly for older people and people with chronic health con- ditions, is widely accepted as a mechanism to improve health outcomes and system efficiency. 3 Building sustainable long-term care systems WHO defines long-term care as “the activities undertaken by others to ensure that people with significant loss of intrinsic
