  • Characterization of homicide and associated factors with use of drugs in a
           state capital city in Northeast Brazil

    • Authors: Alline Oliveira do Nascimento Veloso, Kaio Keomma, Mayrla Sousa Coutinho, Alessandro Leite Cavalcanti
      Abstract: Introduction: Homicide is a public health problem in Brazil that is often related to illicit drugs. Objective: To characterize homicides and aspects associated with the use of illicit drugs. Methods: A cross-sectional study with a quantitative approach carried out in Joao Pessoa, in the state of Paraiba, Brazil, in 2014. 424 homicide victims whose data were collected through a specific instrument were considered, analyzed descriptively and analytically with the aid of statistical software, with Chi Squared Test and Robust Poisson Regression, considering a confidence level of 95% and statistical significance when p<0.05. Results: Prevalence of homicide victims (93.2%), non-whites (97.2%), with up to 30 years, considering the age groups below 20 years (22.6%), 20-24 (26.7%) and 25 to 29 (18.8%), with less than seven years of study (67.5%), with a history of involvement with illicit drugs (72.5%) and incarceration (59,7%). There was an association between involvement with illicit drugs with sex (p=0.037), age (p=0.002) and history of incarceration (p<0.001). There was a 67% higher prevalence of involvement with illicit drugs among those with a history of incarceration (PR: 1.67, 95% CI: 1.44-1.94) and 28% lower among individuals aged 30 years or older (PR: 0.72, CI: 0.58-0.88). Conclusion: Homicide is part of a complex set of social issues, including involvement with illicit drugs, which is more prevalent among young adults and individuals with a history of incarceration.

  • Association between depressive symptoms and sexual dysfunction in men with
           traumatic spinal cord injury

    • Authors: Josepha Karinne de Oliveira Ferro, Caroline Palácio da Silva, Daniella Araújo de Oliveira
      Abstract: Introduction: Spinal cord injury results in loss of functional independence, autonomy and social status. This enormous change contributes to the appearance of depressive symptoms in this population. Objective: To evaluate depressive symptoms and sexual dysfunction in men with traumatic spinal cord injury, and to analyze their association. Methods: Observational study was performed with 44 men with traumatic spinal cord injury, age between 18 and 60 years, injury time over 1 year and active sexual life. The degree of neurological impairment was assessed through the revised 2011 ASIA Impairment Scale, depressive symptoms through the Beck Depression Inventory, and sexual function through the International Erectile Function Index. Descriptive statistics techniques and bivariate analysis were applied to verify association, using a level of significance of 0.05. Results: The volunteers had a mean age of 34.1 years, and an average injury time of 7.7 years. All individuals in the sample had lesion level above the medullary segment L2, with incomplete injury being the most frequent (68.2%). The mean time of the last sexual intercourse was 56.5 days and the weekly frequency of intercourse was the most reported (65.9%). Only 17.6% of the sample presented depressive symptoms, ranging from dysphoria (6.8%) to mild to moderate symptoms (6.8%). No association was found between depressive symptoms and sexual dysfunction, except for the domain of general satisfaction dysfunction (p=0.02). Conclusion: There is no association between depressive symptoms and sexual dysfunction in men with chronic spinal cord injury.

  • Correlation between pain intensity and upper limb limitation in subjects
           with cuff tendinopathy

    • Authors: Alyssa Conte da Silva, Juliana Falcão Padilha, Jefferson Luiz Brum Marques, Cláudia Mirian de Godoy Marques
      Abstract: Introduction: Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy (RMR) causes pain and impairment in shoulder function, but it is not known if both in the same proportion. Objective: Verify whether pain intensity correlates with upper limb function in subjects with RMR. Methods: Cross-sectional observational study of 60 individuals with RMR. The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) was used to assess pain and the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand Questionnaire (DASH) for shoulder function. For data analysis, descriptive statistics (means and standard deviation, numerical and percentage presentation) were performed and Spearman correlation was applied using a significance level of 5%. Results: The average pain by VAS was 5.02 (moderate). Mild limitation (mean score 34.43) was found in the 30 questions of the DASH questionnaire. Regarding the optional modules, in the module intended for athletes/musicians, there was no limitation of the subjects who practiced this (average score of 11.82). In the work module there was a slight limitation (average score 35.38). There was a low correlation between pain and shoulder function (rs=0.2949; p=0.0222). Conclusion: Although subjects with RMR had moderate pain, the correlation was weak between pain and shoulder function.

  • Level of knowledge of pregnant women in the public service about humanized

    • Authors: Amanda Basílio Bastos dos Santos, Enaldo Vieira de Melo, Júlia Maria de Gonçalves Dias, Rayssa da Nóbrega Didou, Rodrigo Almeida Santiago de Araujo, Willas de Oliveira Santos, Lorena Barreto Araújo
      Abstract: Introduction: The awareness of pregnant women is fundamental to positive birth experiences. Objective: To analyze the level of knowledge on humanized birth of pregnant women from two public services and characterize the sample epidemiologically. Methods: Descriptive study using questionnaire between June and August 2017. Sample with 297 pregnant women being selected 200 after applying the exclusion criteria. Association test of variables were used (Chi-square and Fisher's exact test). Results: Mean age was 26.6 years. Majority were from countryside (72.5%), income up to a minimum wage (90.5%) and more of eight years of education (62.5%). 71% started prenatal care in the first trimester and it was conducted by physician in 71% of cases. 71% preferred vaginal delivery and 44% related fear of cesarean. Prenatal professional in charge did not provide information for 66.5%. 30.5% have heard about humanized childbirth, among these, 83.6% showed adequate concepts. Associations were observed between prior knowledge of humanized childbirth and origin (Aracaju) (p=0.03), higher income (p 0.02), lower abortion incidence (p=0.04), prenatal physician (p=0.04) and preference for normal childbirth (p=0.04). Among women without previous knowledge on humanized childbirth there association of correct concept with higher income (p=0.03), schooling (p=0.02) and prenatal physician (p=0.01) Conclusion: The majority did not know about humanized delivery, were from the countryside with lower income, preference for normal birth, were not informed on the types of delivery by the professional practitioner (in majority doctors), whom knew properly. Adequate concepts about humanized childbirth, even in the absence of prior information, were associated to socio-economic and prenatal variables.

  • Assessment of postural sway in people living with HIV/AIDS

    • Authors: Bruno José Frederico Pimenta, Felipe Arruda Moura, Camila Ramos dos Santos, Raquel de Melo Martins, Jefferson Rosa Cardoso, Inara Marques
      Abstract: Introduction: Motor changes are observed in people living with HIV/AIDS. These changes may be associated with the chronicity of infection, continued use of antiretroviral medication, and/or the presence of comorbidities. Objective: The objective of the present study was to evaluate postural sway in people living with asymptomatic HIV/AIDS under treatment with highly active antiretroviral therapy. Methods: Twenty-seven subjects, recruited at an HIV referral center, aged between 30 and 40 years, participated in the study, divided into two groups: HIV group (n=12) and non-HIV group (n=15). The participants performed an experimental task, remaining on a force platform in a static position, in bipedal support and semi-tandem positions, in conditions with and without vision. Results: The results demonstrated that visual occlusion, when the bipedal base was adopted, generated significant differences in the area of oscillation and mean velocity in both groups. Differences were also observed in the area and mean velocity of both groups when the semi-tandem position was adopted without vision. When comparing the groups, it was possible to identify significant differences in the semi-tandem base with vision. Conclusion: Considering these results, it was found that postural oscillation was higher in the visual occlusion condition for both groups. Concomitant to this, we conclude that in the challenging condition, where the base of support is reduced, the HIV group presents greater oscillation (medial-lateral) than the non-HIV group.

  • Depressive symptoms in primary care pregnant women: prevalence and
           associated factors

    • Authors: Rafaela Santi Dell'Osbel, Maria Luisa Oliveira Gregoletto, Cleber Cremonese
      Abstract: Introduction: The onset of emotional disorders early in pregnancy is frequent, including depressive symptoms (DS) such as guilt, lack of appetite and energy. Objective: To measure the prevalence of depressive symptoms and associated factors in pregnant women attending primary care. Methods: Cross-sectional observational epidemiological study of pregnant women, who attend primary care in Caxias do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Depressive symptoms were assessed using Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9). Gross analysis was performed, in which prevalence ratios (PR) and respective confidence intervals (CI 95%) were calculated. The comparison of categorical variables occurred through the Chi-square test. The adjusted analysis was performed by Poisson regression, using the backwards technique, where the final model was constructed from the variables with p≤0.20 in the gross analysis. Results: The sample consisted of 76 pregnant women, of these 46.1% had depressive symptoms. The average age was 26.6 years (±5.95) and 72.4% were married or in a stable union. There was a significant association between depressive symptoms and marital status (PR: 1.54; 95% CI 1.00-2.37; p=0.045) and the occurrence of abortion in other pregnancies (PR: 1.72; 95% CI 1, 08-2.74; p=0.022). Conclusion: There was a high prevalence of depressive symptoms compared to regional studies in the pregnant women investigated. Factors associated with the outcome were marital status and history of abortion, which may cause problems during pregnancy and postpartum. Thus, there is a need for tools and strategies to identify the presence of depressive symptoms in early pregnancy, so that they can be diagnosed and treated.

  • Animal accumulators from the perspective of health promotion and

    • Authors: Claudio Manuel Rodrigues
      Abstract: Animal accumulation is considered a complex phenomenon that, although recognized in the academic universe, is still difficult to solve for health management. Studies on accumulation, mainly of animals, are incipient in Brazil. This literature review article aims to warn about this complex morbidity, which is increasingly common to urban agglomerations, indicating health promotion and surveillance actions to ensure the health of animals, the accumulator and the community to which it belongs. It is suggested that a new approach to animal accumulation disorder may counteract the poor - including academic - visibility demonstrated in the literature review, increasing investment in specific interventions that may explain this important public health problem in Brazil.

  • Influence of climacteric hormonal changes on buccal tissues

    • Authors: Natalia Pereira de Oliveira, Nicolás Antonio Douglas Gomez
      Abstract: During the climacteric period, when female gonads cease their function, estrogen deficiency, especially estradiol, causes important changes in the oral cavity, interfering in inflammatory mechanisms, salivary secretion, collagen metabolism, among others. Through a literature review, this study aimed to see the influence of the hormonal changes from the climacteric period in the oral tissues, providing the dentist surgeon with information regarding the consequences and care related to this phase of the woman's life. In this period, women become more susceptible to changes such as: osteopenia and osteoporosis of the jaws, hyposalivation, periodontal diseases, among others. Preventive treatment through removal of plaque, adequacy of the buccal environment and orientation before and during climacteric are the best means of minimizing oral problems arising from this phase of a woman's life.

      Abstract: Introduction: The treatment of cancer has been evolving every day. However, adverse effects such as dermatological changes have a great psychosocial impact on cancer patients. One dermatological change is alopecia, characterized by loss of eyebrow and scalp strands. Case report: Two cases of patients undergoing chemotherapy with partial and total alopecia were reported. Both were treated with Minoxidil, which was topically used, with complete repilation after three months. No adverse effects observed. Conclusion: Minoxidil topical lotion has proven to be an effective and safe method to treat partial and total alopecia in patients still undergoing cancer treatment.

      Abstract: Introduction: This study reports possible factors for recurrence of acute myocardial infarction of a patient treated in a coronary care unit from a family perspective. Case Report: This is a descriptive study with a qualitative approach, case report type. Data were collected through a semi-structured pilot interview with a relative of a patient who was admitted to the coronary care unit with recurrence of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The family member reported that the intense physical activity performed by the patient, excessive alcohol consumption and non-adherence to drug treatment contributed to the second picture of AMI. The family member mentioned that the guidelines received during discharge were only about the prescribed drugs, highlighting the lack of guidance on lifestyle changes, especially to the nursing staff. Conclusion: The present report revealed that guidance during discharge is not effective in preventing recurrence of AMI and emphasizes the need to rethink the role of nursing professionals in relation to the guidance provided, as a way to facilitate patient adherence to drug treatment and to lifestyle changes.
