Social determinants of dengue shock syndrome in Semarang


This study aimed to know the social determinants related to dengue shock syndrome.


This study used a case control design in Semarang. Cases were dengue patients with shock syndrome diagnosed by a clinician in the hospital, and controls were dengue patients without shock syndrome. Participants were recruited using purposive sampling, and completed written informed consent to be interviewed using a questionnaire.


Results showed that children aged <18 years have the highest risk of having DSS compared to other age groups. Referral system was also correlated to dengue shock syndrome.


This study recommends the clinicians to undertake appropriate diagnosis and prompt decision making to reduce the risk of more severe DHF events. The community should improve the awareness of shock syndrome by taking their children immediately to health services for examination if they have dengue symptoms in order to get the adequate treatment.
