A. Background
Dengue spread by the virus is spread by the Aedes mosquito (Stegomyia).
Over the past two decades, the frequency of cases and epidemics of dengue fever
(dengue fever, DF), dengue fever (dengue hemorragic fever, DHF), and dengue shock
syndrome (dengue shock syndrome, DSS) have shown dramatic improvements
throughout the world.The World Health Report 1996,states that "the reappearance of
infectious diseases is a warning that the progress made so far on world security in
terms of health and prosperity is futile". The report further states that "these infectious
diseases range from diseases that occur in the tropics (such as malaria and DHF that
often occur in developing countries) to diseases found throughout the world (such as
hepatitis and sexually transmitted diseases [STDs], including HIV / AIDS) and food-
borne diseases that affect large numbers of the world's population both in poor and
rich countries.In May 1993, the 46th World Health Meeting submitted a resolution on
dengue control and prevention which emphasized that strengthening DF and DHF
prevention and control at both local and national levels should be one of the priorities
of WHO Member States where the disease is endemic. The resolution also calls for:
(1) strategies developed to address the spread and increase of dengue incidents must
be carried out by relevant countries, (2) increase public health education, (3) promote
health promotion, (4) strengthen research, (5) expand dengue surveillance, (6) guide
delivery in terms of vector control, and (7) mobilization of external resources for
disease prevention must be a priority.
To respond to WHA's resolution in the prevention and control of dengue, a
global strategy for the operation of vector control activities was developed based on
key components such as selective, integrated mosquito control measures with
community participation and cooperation between sectors, emergency preparation,
etc. One of the main pillars in the global strategy is an increase in active surveillance
and is based on accurate laboratory examinations of DF / DHF and its vectors. In
order to run smoothly, every endemic country must enter DHF disease into one type
of disease that must be reported.
This disease is commonly found in tropical areas such as Southeast Asia, India,
Brazil, America, including in all corners of Indonesia, except in places of altitude
more than 1000 meters above sea level. Doctors and other health workers, such as

midwives and medical staff Often wrong in the diagnosis, because of the tendency of
early symptoms that resemble other diseases such as flu and typhoid (typhoid).

A. Definition of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)

Dengue infection is an acute fever disease caused by dengue virus (flavivirus group
belonging to family Togaviridae), transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and other
Stegomya species such as A. albopictus, polynesiensis, scutellaris.
DBD disease is not transmitted directly from person to person. The patient becomes
infective for mosquitoes at the time of uremia, which is sometime before the onset of
the fever until the fever ends. Aedes Aegypti's nose becomes infective 8 -12 days after
sucking the blood of the previous DBD. During this period Aedes mosquitoes who
have been infected with this dengue virus will remain infective throughout their life
and potentially transmit dengue virus to other vulnerable human beings.
In accordance with the aforementioned criteria, WHO (1975) divides the degree of
DHF disease into four degrees, as follows.
1. Degree I : Fever with non-specific symptoms and the only manifestation of
bleeding is positive tourniquet test.
2. Degree II: degree one with spontaneous bleeding in the skin or other bleeding.
3. Degree III: The finding of a circulatory failure, ie rapid and soft pulse, decreased
pulse pressure (less than equal to 20 mmHg) or hypotension accompanied by cold,
moist, and restless skin.
4. Degree VI: severe shock with unmanageable pulses and unmodified blood
5. Definition of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)
B. Etiology of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)
There are at least four different types of dengue virus (type 1-4) that have been
isolated from dengue fever. Four types of dengue virus (serotype) in Indonesia,
namely DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN- 4. It turns out that DEN-2 and DEN-3 are
the most common serotype as a cause. Nimmannitya (1975) in Thailand reported that
the dominant DEN-2 serotype. Being in Indonesia especially by DEN-3, though lately
there is a trend of domination by the DEN-2 virus.
In addition, the sequence of serotype infections is a risk factor because more than
20% of the sequence of DEN-1 virus infection followed by DEN-2 causes shock,

while the risk factor of shock in DEN-3 virus affairs followed by DEN-2 is 6% DEN-
4 followed by DEN-2 is 2%.

C. Pathophysiology of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)

There are two pathophysiological changes that occur in DBD:
a. Increased blood vessel permeability resulted in plasma leakage, hypovolemia, and
shock. DHF has a unique feature due to its special plasma leakage towards the
pleural and peritoneal cavity. In addition, the leakage period is quite short (24 - 48
b. Abnormal haemostasis occurs due to vasculopathy, thrombocytopenia, resulting in
various types of bleeding manifestations.

D. Signs and Symptoms of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)

The WHO clinical trials (1975) to diagnose the DHF are set out below.
a. High fever with sudden and continuous for 2-7 days.
b. Manifestation of bleeding, including at least positive toureniquet test and one other
form (petekia, purpura, ecomosis, epistaxis, gum bleeding), hematemesis and or
c. Enlargement of the liver.
d. Renal stress characterized by weak pulse, rapidly accompanied by decreased pulse
pressure (to 20 mmHg or less), decreased blood pressure (systolic pressure
decreased to 80 mmHg or less) with a cold and dull skin especially at the tip of the
nose, toe and toe , the patient becomes anxious, cyanosis arises around the mouth.
1. The first phase
Relatively mild with fever began to suddenly, malaise, vomiting, headache,
anorexia, and cough accompanied by 2-5 days by rapid clinical deterioration
and kollaps.
2. The second phase
Patients usually suffer from cold extremities, dampness, hot body, red face,
sweaty, restless, irritant, and mid-epigastric pain. Often there are petekies
scattered on the forehead and limbs, spontaneous ecosystems may seem, and
it's easy to bruise and bleed on where the venous function is normal. Macular
or maculopapular retin may appear, and there may be cyanosis around the
mouth and peripheral. Breathing is often fast and heavy. fast, small, and subtle

heart sounds. Pulse pressure is often narrow (20 mmHg or less), blood
pressure can be low and difficult to obtain. The liver may be 4-6 cm below the
edge of the cavity and usually hard and painful. Less than 10% sufferers
suffering from eczotic or bleeding of the obvious gastrointestinal tract, usually
post-shock uncoupled.After 24-36 hours of critical period, convalesen is fast
enough for a healed child. Temperature can be back to normal before or during
the shock phase. Barthikardi and extracurricular ventricles are common during
conventions. There is a brain injury injury caused by old shock or sometimes
because of intracranial bleeding. The three strains of dengue virus circulating
in the main Asian regions of 1983 are accompanied mainly by severe clinical
syndrome, characterized by encephalopathy, hypoglycemia, prominent and
sometimes jaundiced liver enzymes. In contrast to the very distinctive pattern
of very severe children, secondary dengue infection is relatively mild in most
cases, ranging from unclear infections to undeferrating upper respiratory
diseases. Laboratory Data : The most frequent hematologic disorder during
clinical shock is the increase in hematocrit 20% or greater beyond the
hematocrit hematocrit, thrombocytopenia, mild leukocytosis (rarely exceeding
10,000 / mm3) elongated haemorrhage time, and moderate decreased
protrombin levels (rarely less than 40% control). The rates of fibrinogen may
be subnormal and fibrinogen fracture products rise. Other disorders are the
moderate increase in serum transaminase levels, complementary consumption,
mild metabolic acidosis with hyponatremia, and sometimes hypochloremia, a
slight increase in serum nitrogen urea, and hypoalbuminemia. Chest
Roentgenogram shows pleural effusion in almost all patients.
E. Medical Management and Nursing Healing Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever
The rules of DBD should be based on the mild weight of the disease found among
1. Dengue cases that are allowed to undergo treatment
Patients are allowed to treat the road if only complaining of heat, but the desire
to eat and drink is still good. To overcome the high heat it is desirable to give
paracetamol hot drug 10-15 mg / kg BW every 3-4 hours repeated if the heat
symptom is still above 38.50C. Therapeutic salicylic drugs are not
recommended because they have the risk of bleeding and acidosis. Most cases

of DBD in this way of treatment are DBD cases that show the first day and
second day heat manifestations without indicating other complications. If the
person with DHF indicates the manifestation of hyperterms and conjunctivitis
should be recommended for inpatient treatment.
2. DBD case degrees I and II
On day 3, 4, and 5 hectares are recommended for hospitalization because this
patient has a risk of occurrence when shock. To anticipate the occurrence of
shock, the patient is advised to infiltrate the cryptoid fluid with a droplet on the
basis of 7, 5, 3. During the heat phase, the patient is recommended Many
people drink or drink water or commonly used to cope with diarrhea,
hematocrit that increases more than 20% of the normal price is indicator of
plasma leakage and should be treated in the observation room at the
rehydration center for a period of 12-24 hours.
3. Management of DBD (degrees III and IV)
"Dengue Shock Syndrome" (dengue rhythm syndrome) includes emergency
cases requiring rapid handling and need to get rapid replacement fluid. Typical
acids and electrolyte (hiponatremia) disorders are found in this case. In this
case it is important to consider the possibility of DIC. blood promotes the
occurrence of DIC which can cause severe bleeding and difficult to overcome.
Rapid replacation of the missing plasma isothermal salt solution (lactic ringer,
5% dextrose solution in lactate ringer or 5% dextrose in acetic ringer solution
and normal solution of salt fait) with a total of 10-20 ml / kg / 1 hour.In very
severe cases (degree IV) can be given bolus 10 ml / kg (1 or 2x). if the shock
continues with high hematocrit, colloidal solution (dextran with 40,000
molecular weight in normal solution of salt or plasma) can be given by 10-20
ml / kg / hour.
4. Anxiety drugs
In some cases tranquilizers are needed especially in very nervous cases. Toxic
drugs should be avoided, chloral oral or rectal hydration is recommended at
doses of 12.5-50 mm / kg (but not more than 1 hour) used as a hypnotic drug.
5. Oxygen therapy
6. Blood transfusion
7. Monitoring

The vital signs and levels of hematocrit should be monitored and evaluated
regularly to assess the outcome of treatment.
8. Criteria for returning the patient
Patient may be returned if:
a. No fever for 24 hours without antipyretic.
b. Appetite improved.
c. Clinical improvement appears.
d. Hematocrine stable.
e. Three days after shock is solved.
f. Platelet counts 200.000-300.000 / mm3
g. No respiratory distress.
h. Emergency room for dengue Haemorragic Fever (DHF)

F. Prevention of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)

The precise principle in the prevention of DHF (Dit.Jen.P3M., Dep. Case R.I., 1976)
is as follows.
a. Utilize the change of mosquito state as a result of natural influences by
implementing vector eradication when there is a small DHF / DSS case.
b. Decide the transmission circle by holding the vector density at very low levels to
give the patient the opportunity to heal spontaneously.
c. Introduce vector eradication at the center of the deployment area, ie schools and
hospitals, including the surrounding buffer areas.
d. Attempt vector eradication in all potential high-risk areas.
DBD Prevention includes:
1. Eradication of adult mosquitoes
Attempt to clean the places that mosquitoes prefer (eg hang clothes), install
mosquito nets on ventilation and house windows, spraying with chemicals,
fogging fumes, penetrating the life cycle by using fishfish in the water
2. Eradicate mosquito larvae
By doing 3M (draining, closing, and burying) means the tubing curves once a
week, closing the water storages together, the used cannabis cisterns in the
pool or hard-water storage areas can be transmitted by Abate powder.

Guidelines for the use of Abate powder (abatization): 1 tablespoon perch (10
g) for 100 liters of water. Walls should not be brushed after sprinkling abate à
abate powder will stick to the wall of the tub or crockery. The abate powder
remains effective for up to 3 months.
3. Counseling for the community
Because DBDs have no drugs that can kill dengue virus or DBD vaccine, the
efforts to prevent dengue are very important. Fighting of mosquito nest (PSN)
is very important for the prevention of DBD. PSN movements should be done
jointly by all levels of society at home , in schools, in hospitals, and public
places such as places of worship, tombs. Thus society can change the behavior
of healthy living, especially improving environmental hygiene.
G. Complications of Dengue Heamorrhagic Fever (DHF)
1. Encephalitis such as seizures and coma may appear so complications in the case of
a long enough shock accompanied by severe bleeding.
2. Water toxicity, a relatively common introgenic complication that can cause an
3. Unusual manifestations that are rarely seen in DF / DHF infections include acute
renal failure and hemolytic urinary syndrome.

A. Conclusion
There are many ways to reduce the incidence of DHF. Because the vector of DHF is
Aedes a mosquito, then there are some things that should be done to break the chain
of diseases:
1. Without insecticide:
a) Drain bath tubs, jars, drums, etc. at least once a week.
b) Close the reservoir of water tightly.
c) Clean the yard from used cans, used bottles that allow mosquitoes to nest.
2. With insecticide:
a) Malathion to kill adult mosquitoes: usually by fogging.
b) Abate to kill mosquito larvae by way of sowing on vessels holding clean water
with a dose of 1 gram of Abate SG 1% per 10 liters of water.

B. Suggestion
The author hopes that the preparation of papers on Askep in children / infants with
DHF can provide knowledge and knowledge in the fields of education and nursing
practice. And also with this paper can be a reference for the actions of the nursing
