Over the past 100 years, modern science in collaboration with technology has been responsible for some phenomenal inventions to aid the delivery of medical treatment such as the x-ray machine, ultra sound technology and the cochlear implant. One such development has been initiated in field of robotic surgery, which is redefining the way in which patients undergo procedures. Robotic surgery utilizes the robot to actually perform the tasks that were performed by humans but in a more precise and efficient
towards a larger sample. Again these can be also shaped to be done in a particular setting (like the dental wing in a facility) or in specific groups of patients (like age groups); and these are called as tailored surveys. Moreover, surveys can also be paper based, telephonic or through internet or any other means as given by Picker Institute (2009). The narratives are mostly qualitative tools. These can include interviews with patients on specific subjects or incidents enumerate Klaucy et al (2009).
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study Dengue is an arbovirus disease complex which includes dengue fever (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) and its subsequent dengue shock syndrome (DSS). It is caused by four serotypes of dengue virus. A dengue virus infection may be asymptomatic or it may lead to undifferentiated viral fever syndrome, dengue fever, fever hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome. (World Health Organization 2003) The disease is often, though not exclusively
