  • Validation process of voice self-assessment instruments in Brazil

    • Abstract: RESUMO Objetivo caracterizar e refletir sobre o processo de equivalência cultural e/ou validação de instrumentos de autoavaliação vocal traduzidos e adaptados para o português brasileiro, utilizados na prática clínica e em pesquisas científicas. Estratégia de pesquisa Buscas realizadas nas bases de dados: SciELO, LILACS, PubMed e The Cochrane Library. Critérios de seleção estudos selecionados quanto à presença dos descritores citados em seu título, resumo ou lista de descritores; artigos de validação de instrumento de autoavaliação em voz, ou com o objetivo de realizar equivalência cultural; direcionados à população brasileira; estudos originais com amostra de seres humanos, independentemente da idade do ciclo vital, tipo de disfonia ou sintomas vocais. Resultados nove artigos selecionados. Qualidade de vida em voz e desvantagem vocal foram os construtos mais abordados. A maioria das validações ocorreu na Região Sudeste do Brasil. A maior parte dos escores dos instrumentos foi calculada por somatório simples das respostas dos participantes nos itens; pontos de corte nem sempre foram apresentados. Os domínios dos instrumentos, bem como os itens que os compunham, foram mantidos conforme apresentado no instrumento em sua língua original. A estatística mais comum para análise dos instrumentos foi o coeficiente Alfa de Crombach. Conclusão os construtos mais abordados nos artigos selecionados foram qualidade de vida em voz e índice de desvantagem vocal. Os instrumentos foram considerados válidos e sensíveis para autoavaliação vocal, mesmo quando não consideradas as etapas propostas internacionalmente para validação de instrumentos em saúde.ABSTRACT Objective to characterize and reflect on the process of cultural equivalence and/or validation of vocal self-assessment instruments translated and adapted to the Brazilian Portuguese, used in clinical practice and scientific research. Research strategy The search of articles was carried out in the following databases: SciELO, LILACS, PubMed and “The Cochrane Library”. Selection criteria The studies were selected regarding the presence of the descriptors cited in their title, abstract or in the list of descriptors; validation articles of a self-assessment instrument in voice or with the objective of performing cultural equivalence; to be directed to the Brazilian population; original studies with a sample of human beings; regardless of the age of the life cycle, type of dysphonia or vocal symptoms. Results Nine articles were selected. Quality of life in voice and vocal handicap were the most addressed constructs. Most validations occurred in the Southeast region of Brazil. The scores of the instruments is calculated by a simple sum of the answers given by the participants in the items; cutoff points are not always presented. The domains of the instruments, as well as the items that compose them, were maintained as presented in the instrument in its original. The most common statistic for instrument analysis was Cronbach's Alpha coefficient. Conclusion The constructs most addressed in the selected articles were quality of life in voice and vocal handicap index. The instruments were considered valid and sensitive for vocal self-assessment, even not considering the international proposals for validation of health instruments.
       
  • Feeding methods and weight evolution in newborns with congenital
           microcephaly due for Zika Virus

    • Abstract: RESUMO Objetivo investigar a forma de oferta de dieta, conforme os diversos métodos de alimentação, e descrever o ganho de peso em recém-nascidos com microcefalia relacionada ao Zika Vírus, comparando-os com recém-nascidos sem microcefalia. Método estudo de coorte retrospectivo com caso controle aninhado. Informações sobre idade gestacional, peso e métodos de alimentação (seio materno, sonda nasogástrica/orogástrica, mamadeira e copo) foram coletadas em prontuários de 43 recém-nascidos com microcefalia por Zika Vírus, equiparados conforme idade gestacional com 43 recém-nascidos sem acometimentos (grupo controle), em uma maternidade de referência no Nordeste do Brasil. Os dados foram coletados desde o nascimento até a alta hospitalar. As medidas de desfecho foram pesos (ao nascer e na alta), velocidade de ganho de peso, tempo de internação e métodos de alimentação. Resultados O grupo com microcefalia apresentou menores pesos ao nascer (D=-1,67; p<0,001), inclusive com maior probabilidade de serem baixo peso (Phi=0,687; p<0,001), e no momento da alta (D=-0,87; p=0,006), do que o controle. O grupo com microcefalia também apresentou maior velocidade de ganho de peso (D=0,77; p=0,006), embora com métodos alimentares semelhantes ao grupo controle, incluindo a aceitação do seio materno, de forma exclusiva (34,9%) ou complementada (58,1%). Conclusão recém-nascidos com microcefalia relacionada ao Zika Vírus utilizaram métodos alimentares semelhantes, incluindo seio materno, aos do grupo sem acometimento. Quanto ao peso, apresentaram valores menores ao nascimento e na alta, apesar de terem um crescimento precoce pós-natal mais rápido que aqueles sem microcefalia.ABSTRACT Purpose Investigate the form of diet offer, according to the different feeding methods, and describe the weight gain in newborns with microcephaly related to Zika Virus, comparing them with newborns without microcephaly. Methods Retrospective cohort with nested case-control study. Information on gestational age, weight and feeding methods (maternal breast, nasogastric/orogastric tube, bottle and cup) were collected from medical records of 43 newborns with microcephaly due to Zika Virus, matched according to gestational age with 43 newborns without involvement (control group), in a reference maternity hospital in northeastern Brazil. Data were collected from birth to hospital discharge. Outcome measures were weights (at birth and at discharge), weight gain speed, length of hospital stay and feeding methods. Results The microcephaly group had lower weights at birth (D=-1.67; p<0.001), even more likely to be underweight (Phi=0.687; p<0.001), and at discharge (D=-0.87; p=0.006), than the control group. The microcephaly group also showed a higher rate of weight gain (D=0.77; p=0.006), although with eating methods similar to the control group, including acceptance of the mother’s breast, exclusively (34.9%) or complemented (58.1%). Conclusion Newborns with Zika Virus-related microcephaly used similar feeding methods, including maternal breast, to those in the non-affected group. As for weight, they showed lower values at birth and at discharge, despite having a faster postnatal early growth than those without microcephaly.
       
  • An analysis of asynchronous hearing health teleconsulting at the Rio
           Grande do Norte Telehealth Center

    • Abstract: RESUMO Objetivo identificar o perfil das teleconsultorias assíncronas na área da saúde auditiva do Núcleo Técnico Científico de Telessaúde do Rio Grande do Norte (RN). Métodos este estudo é retrospectivo e descritivo. Foram analisados os registros das teleconsultorias de janeiro de 2015 a dezembro de 2019 na plataforma de teleconsultoria do Núcleo de Telessaúde do RN. As teleconsultorias foram filtradas e categorizadas por dois fonoaudiólogos quanto a estado de origem, gênero e profissão do solicitante, tema e objetivo da questão. Resultados entre as teleconsultorias realizadas no período, foram incluídas, neste estudo, as teleconsultorias na área da saúde auditiva. Em ordem decrescente de frequência, os profissionais solicitantes foram: agentes comunitários de saúde, fonoaudiólogos, agentes de combate a endemias, médicos, enfermeiros, agentes de saúde pública, técnicos e auxiliares de enfermagem e outros. Quanto aos objetivos das teleconsultorias, de maior a menor frequência, foram constatadas perguntas sobre condutas, avaliação, tratamento, relações entre fatores, etiologias, prevenção, sintomas, implantação, acesso ao sistema de saúde e outras. Em relação às temáticas, em ordem descendente, foram observadas perguntas sobre hipoacusia, dispositivos auxiliares de audição, zumbido, otite, programa saúde na escola, emissões otoacústicas, otalgia, labirintite e perfuração timpânica. Conclusão as teleconsultorias assíncronas sobre saúde auditiva tiveram maior frequência por solicitantes do gênero feminino, agentes comunitários de saúde e fonoaudiólogos, sobre a temática da hipoacusia e de dispositivos auxiliares de audição, com objetivo de tomada de decisões para condutas e avaliação na área da saúde auditiva.ABSTRACT Objective To identify the profile of asynchronous hearing health teleconsulting ​​ at the Scientific-Technical Center for Telehealth in Rio Grande do Norte (RN). Methods This study is retrospective and descriptive. Teleconsulting records from January 2015 to December 2019 on the telehealth platform of the Telehealth Center of RN were analyzed. The teleconsultations were filtered and categorized by two speech-language therapists regarding the applicant's state of origin, gender and profession, theme and objective of the question. Results Among the teleconsultations carried out in the period, the ones regarding the hearing health area were included in this study. In decreasing order of frequency, the requesting professionals were: community health agents, speech-language therapists, endemic disease control agents, doctors, nurses, public health agents, nursing technicians and assistants and others. As for the objectives of teleconsulting, from higher to lower frequency, were identified questions about: conduct, evaluation, treatment, relations among factors, etiologies, prevention, symptoms, implementation, access to the health system and others. Concerning the themes, in descending order, were observed questions about hearing loss, hearing aid devices, tinnitus, otitis, school health program, otoacoustic emissions, otalgia, labyrinthitis and tympanic perforation. Conclusion Asynchronous teleconsulting on hearing health was more frequent on female applicants, community health agents and speech-language therapists, concerning the theme of hearing loss and hearing aid devices, to make decisions for conducts and evaluation in the health area hearing.
       
  • Auditory and vestibular changes associated with the use of mefloquine: an
           integrative review

    • Abstract: RESUMO Objetivo descrever, por meio de revisão da literatura, alterações auditivas e/ou vestibulares relacionadas ao uso em curto ou em longo prazo da mefloquina. Estratégia de pesquisa trata-se de uma revisão integrativa, realizada nas seguintes bases de dados: PubMed, Web of Science, SciELO, LILACS, Scopus, ScienceDirect, Cochrane Library, Embase, OpenGrey, DissOnline e OAlster. Critérios de seleção foram incluídos estudos com participantes a partir de 18 anos de idade, que fizeram uso de mefloquina e que foram submetidos à avaliação auditiva e/ou questionário referente à função auditiva e vestibular. Foram excluídas revisões de literatura, capítulos de livros e estudos que utilizaram a mefloquina combinada a outros medicamentos. Resultados foram identificados 1.267 estudos nas bases de dados utilizadas, sendo selecionados 28 artigos para leitura completa. Destes, 12 foram incluídos na revisão, de acordo com os critérios de elegibilidade. Quatro artigos apontaram a presença de alterações vestibulares e auditivas, 2 indicaram apenas alterações auditivas e 6 apenas desordens vestibulares. No que se refere às manifestações auditivas, zumbido e perda auditiva foram os sintomas mais frequentes. Vertigem/tontura e desequilíbrio corresponderam às alterações vestibulares comumente apresentadas. Conclusão manifestações auditivas e vestibulares foram referidas em curto e longo prazo, após o tratamento com a droga. A descontinuação de seu uso possibilitou a reversão das manifestações, porém, em alguns casos, foi observada a permanência das afecções. Considera-se importante a realização de acompanhamento audiológico e vestibular durante a ingestão da mefloquina, visto o seu perfil de toxicidade e possíveis manifestações colaterais de caráter auditivo e vestibular.ABSTRACT Objective To describe through a literature review auditory and/or vestibular alterations associated with the short or long-term use of mefloquine. Research strategy Integrative review performed on the following databases: Pubmed, Web of Science, Scielo, Lilacs, Scopus, Science Direct, Cochrane Library, Embase, Open Grey, DissOnline, OAlster. Selection Criteria The articles selected included studies with participants that were 18 years old or over, who used mefloquine and who were submitted to an auditory evaluation and/or a questionnaire regarding auditory and vestibular function. Literature reviews, book chapters, and studies using mefloquine associated with other drugs were excluded. Results 1,267 studies were identified in the databases used, 28 articles were selected for full reading, and out of these, twelve were included in the review according to the eligibility criteria. Four articles pointed out the presence of vestibular and auditory diseases, two indicated only auditory disorders, and six solely vestibular disorders. Regarding auditory manifestations, tinnitus and hearing loss (HL) were the most frequent symptoms. Vertigo/dizziness and imbalance matched to the vestibular changes were commonly observed. Conclusion Auditory and vestibular manifestations were referred to in the short and long-term after treatment with the drug. The discontinuation of its use made it possible to reverse the manifestations; however, in some cases, the permanence of the disorders was reported. Audiological and vestibular follow-up during mefloquine use is considered important, given its toxicity profile and possible side manifestations of an auditory and vestibular nature.
       
  • Atypical reconstruction of the larynx: functional assessment after
           enlarged supratracheal laryngectomy with cricoglossohioidopexy

    • Abstract: RESUMO Em tumores transglóticos estendidos para base de língua, a indicação para ressecção do osso hioide descarta a possibilidade de realização de uma laringectomia parcial horizontal clássica, devido ao grande risco de complicações pulmonares oriundas de uma disfagia grave. O objetivo deste estudo foi descrever os aspectos funcionais de deglutição e voz de um paciente submetido à laringectomia supratraqueal ampliada com cricoglossohioidopexia. Trata-se de um homem de 69 anos, com tumoração transglótica na hemilaringe direita, submetido à laringectomia supratraqueal ampliada, com ampliação para base de língua, osso hioide e aritenoide direita. Na videofluoroscopia da deglutição, observou-se aspiração silente para líquido fino durante a deglutição e resíduo em base de língua, valécula, aritenoide, esfíncter esofágico superior e recessos piriformes em todas as consistências e volumes. Na videolaringoscopia, observou-se voz por meio da vibração da unidade cricoaritenóidea esquerda, associada à base de língua e constritores da faringe. No protocolo Consensus Auditory-Perceptual Evaluation of Voice (CAPE V), notou-se grau moderado de rouquidão e soprosidade. O paciente apresentou preservação parcial das funções laríngeas, grau moderado de disfonia e alimentação e hidratação exclusivas por via oral, com sólidos macios e líquido espessado em néctar, sem prejuízos à saúde pulmonar, até o momento.ABSTRACT In transglottic tumors extended to the base of the tongue, the indication for resection of the hyoid bone rules out the possibility of performing a classic horizontal partial laryngectomy due to the high risk of pulmonary complications resulting from severe dysphagia. This study aims to describe the functional aspects of swallowing and voice of a patient undergoing an enlarged supratracheal laryngectomy with cricoglossohioidopexy. This is a 69-year-old man with a transglottic tumor in the right hemilarynx, who underwent an extended supratracheal laryngectomy with enlargement to the base of the tongue, hyoid bone and right arytenoid. In swallowing videofluoroscopy, silent aspiration was observed in fine liquid and residue on the basis of tongue, valecule, arytenoid, upper esophageal sphincter and pyriform recesses in all consistencies and volumes. In videolaryngoscopy, a voice was observed through the vibration of the left cricoarytenoid unit associated with the base of the tongue and constrictors of the pharynx. The Consensus Auditory-Perceptual Evaluation of Voice (CAPE V) showed a moderate degree of hoarseness and breathiness. The patient had partial preservation of laryngeal functions, with a moderate degree of dysphonia and exclusive oral feeding and hydration with soft solids and thickened liquid in nectar without impairing lung health until the study.
       
  • Student stress in a speech, language and hearing sciences undergraduate
           course

    • Abstract: RESUMO Objetivo verificar a prevalência de estresse e os fatores associados à sua presença em discentes de um curso de Fonoaudiologia. Métodos participaram 105 discentes, maiores de 18 anos, de ambos os sexos, matriculados no curso de Fonoaudiologia de uma universidade federal. Foram excluídos os discentes que não estavam com a matrícula ativa durante o período da pesquisa. Todos responderam a um questionário sociodemográfico e ao Inventário de Sintomatologia de Stress de Lippi, que identifica os sintomas de estresse, bem como a sua respectiva fase e os sintomas predominantes. Os dados receberam tratamento estatístico, sendo estipulado o nível de significância de 5%. Resultados dentre os participantes, 77,1% apresentaram resultados sugestivos de estresse, sendo que, destes, 77,7% estavam na fase de “resistência”, 18,5% na fase de “quase exaustão”; 2,5% na fase de “alerta”; e 1,2% na fase de “exaustão”. Quanto à sintomatologia 64,2% apresentaram predominância de sintomas psicológicos, 18,5%, físicos e 17,3%, físicos e psicológicos. A análise estatística mostrou a presença significativamente superior de estresse entre as mulheres e entre os que não trabalhavam e a relação do estresse com o ano de estudo. Conclusão um elevado número de discentes de Fonoaudiologia foi identificado com estresse, sendo a fase de “resistência” a mais frequente, com prevalência de sintomas psicológicos. Os fatores associados ao estresse foram sexo, com maior prejuízo entre as mulheres, o fato de não exercerem atividade remunerada e o ano do curso em que estavam matriculados, sendo que no primeiro ano foi observada menor prevalência de estresse e no último ano, maior.ABSTRACT Objective To verify the prevalence and factors associated with the presence of stress in students of a Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences course. Methods 105 students participated, over 18 years old, of both sexes, enrolled in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences course at a Federal University. Students who were not active during participation in the research were excluded. All respond to a sociodemographic questionnaire and Lipp's Stress Symptoms Inventory, which identifies the symptoms of stress, as well as their s—pecific phase and the predominant symptoms. The data received statistical treatment being stipulated the significance level of 5%. Results 77.1% showed results suggestive of stress, of which 77.7% were in the “resistance” phase, 18.5% in the “almost exhaustion”; 2.5% in the “alarm”; and 1.2% in the “exhaustion”. As for the symptomatology, 64.2% had a predominance of psychological symptoms, 18.5% physical, and 17.3% physical and psychological. The statistical analysis showed a significantly higher presence of stress among women and among those who do not work, and a relationship between stress and the study year. Conclusion A high number of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences students with stress, was identified, with the “resistance” phase as the most frequent and the prevalence of psychological symptoms. The factors associated with stress were gender, which presented greater damages among women, the fact that students do not engage in paid work, and the year of the course they were enrolled. The first year had the lowest prevalence of stress, while the last year had the highest result.
