Multiprofessional Integration In Monitoring Patients With Mental Disorders: A Literature Review

Review Article of American Journal of Psychiatric Research and Reviews Multiprofessional Integration In Monitoring Patients With Mental Disorders: A Literature Review Fernanda Romão Aquino de Sousa UFC Objective: The objective of the study was to review the literature on how multiprofessional integration can positively impact the quality of life of patients with mental disorders, increasing treatment compliance and ensuring the necessary care for the patient. Methods: A search was made in the Pubmede Scielo databases, using the descriptors found in the DECS, using as descriptors ¨ Community Mental Health¨, ¨Services Patient Care Team¨, health mental¨, ¨ community health services mental¨, a total of 242 were selected, of which 49. Results: Considering that the field of mental health, aggregates a set of complex and particular issues of each being, a multidisciplinary treatment is essential to integrate all therapeutic possibilities. In this bias, it is perceived that the fight for hegemony over the ways of caring, how to deal optimally with the experience of illness is guided by an intentionality of reorganization of knowledge about the health/disease dichotomy, which is reflected in the models proposed for the implementation of actions and services aiming at the promotion, prevention, care and rehabilitation of human health. Conclusion: In view of the study carried out, the need for expanding researches and the daily approach of the teams working in the multi, inter and transdisciplinary perspectives are fundamental tools for the treatment effectiveness, as well as the political action and necessary investments in the mental health area in order to guarantee better assistance to patients suffering from mental disorders.

EFFECTIVENESS OF KINESIOTHERAPEUTIC EXERCISES IN LOMBALGY SECONDARY TO BONE DEMINERALIZATION AND LUMBAR HYPOLORDOSIS: AN EXPERIENCE REPORT

Research Article of American Journal of Orthopedic Research and Reviews EFFECTIVENESS OF KINESIOTHERAPEUTIC EXERCISES IN LOMBALGY SECONDARY TO BONE DEMINERALIZATION AND LUMBAR HYPOLORDOSIS: AN EXPERIENCE REPORT João Adriano Correia Santos¹* ¹UniAGES. Objective: To report the experience of the effects of kinesiotherapy exercises applied to a patient with low back pain associated with bone demineralization and lumbar hypolordosis. Methods: Physiotherapeutic monitoring of a 55-year-old female patient from Bahia is presented, presenting a condition compatible with low back pain, secondary to bone demineralization in the lumbosacral spine, dorsal and lumbar hypolordosis. In the assessment, the Owestry questionnaires (14 points), Visual Analogue Scale (grade 6), FABQ-Brazil subscale (43 points), absence of lateral shift, hip movement (internal rotation D = 27º, E = 31º) were applied , segmental mobility test of the thoracolumbar spine (hypermobile vertebrae = L1 to S1), Pronation Instability test (positive), symptoms longer than 16 days, aberrant movements with finger climbing, centralization of symptoms in the flexion and lateral inclination movements, and periphery to knee E. in extension. Thus, it was classified in the Mobilization / Manipulation and Stabilization groups, which was subjected to physical therapy intervention during 12 visits. Therapeutic approaches were based on segmental stabilization exercises associated with co-contraction of the abdominal and pelvic muscles, passive stretching, myofascial release with digit pressure and pelvic, sacroiliac and thoracic mobilization exercises. Results: After treatment, there were positive effects on low back pain and when performing movements, gaining flexibility, mobility and muscle strength, as well as feeling of well-being and improved sleep. Conclusion: It is inferred, therefore, that the conduct based on clinical reasoning is of paramount importance for the physiotherapeutic performance in the kinetic-functional problems arising from low back pain, which contributed to the improvement of the pathological condition and promotion of quality of life.

Research Article of International Journal of Food and Nutrition Research Evaluation Of Murinometric Parameters In Wistar Rats Submitted To Diet Containing Babaçu Coconut Oil Raisa Rebeca da Silva Batista¹*, Isabel Michely da Silva Galvão de Melo¹, Luciana Maria Silva de Seixas Maia¹ ¹Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE), Recife/Pernambuco, Brasil. Objective: Evaluate the effects of the maternal diet containing babassu coconut oil on future generation, through the analysis of murinometric parameters during the lactation period. Methods: The analysis was carried out with 32 rats of the Wistar lineage, from the breeding facility of the Department of Nutrition at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE). These animals came from mothers who were isolated in individual cage in 2 groups, being a control group (CG, n = 16) with a standard diet according to the recommendations of the American Institute of Nutrition-93G (AIN-93) and an experimental group, with an AIN diet -93-G modified, containing babaçu oil (GEO, n = 16). The animals were subjected to an artificial light-dark cycle of 12/12 hours, with free access to water and food. The offspring were submitted to evaluations every three days regarding: body weight, waist circumference, tail length, Lee index, body mass index and abdomen-thorax ratio. Results: It was demonstrated that there was no statistical difference between the groups regarding weight gain and murinometric measurements of the offspring, except for the item related to tail length at 21 days. A significant reduction was identified in the GEO group when compared to the respective control (3,604 ± 1,062 versus 3,836 ± 1,254). Conclusion: The data obtained indicate that unbalanced levels of fatty acids in the maternal diet can affect the development of the progeny nervous system. However, studies for longer periods are necessary, as well as other behavioral variables to better clarify these nutritional implications on the ...

Methodology: The search was made with the most recent papers, with free access in online databases: Pubmed (National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes), Lilacs (Latin-American and Caribbean Literature in Health Science, acronym in Spanish) and Scielo (Scientific Electronic Library Online), by using key words related with the proposed theme. Results: Libraries have substrates and residuals that allow the presence and proliferation of airborne fungi. These fungi are biodeteriorators that attack the collections but also can cause respiratory diseases, mycoses, or even systemic diseases. The most common genera are Aspergillus, Penicillium, Cladosporium, Alternaria, Acremonium and Fusarium. These fungi have asexual reproduction by producing tiny dry spores that can remain viable by long periods on the air and can also be transported on it. Preserve collections demands control of air temperature and humidity, to inhibit the airborne fungi proliferation and thus, decreasing the risks to human health.

STUDY OF PLACENTAS OF HYPERTENSIVE MOTHERS ASSISTED IN TWO PUBLIC MATERNITIES OF RECIFE-PE

Research Article of American Journal of Histology and Cytology STUDY OF PLACENTAS OF HYPERTENSIVE MOTHERS ASSISTED IN TWO PUBLIC MATERNITIES OF RECIFE-PE Karinne Gomes Mendonça1*, Evandro Valentim da Silva2, Fálba Bernadete Ramos dos Anjos3 1UFPE, 2Pathology Laboratory of Hospital das ClínicasHC/UFPE, 3Professor / Researcher at the Department of Histology and Embryology – UFPE Objective: Perform the histomorphometric study of the following regions: areas of perivillous fibrin deposition; thickness of the endothelial layer of the vessels; analysis of Tenney-Parker changes. Analyze the Placental Index (IP). Results: It was seen that the weight of the placentas increased according to the weight of the newborn, however, when the variable PI was analyzed as being decisive for the development of a risk-free pregnancy, it was found that this parameter was not significant between the groups studied. (p <0.05). It was found that there is a significant difference in relation to the areas of fibrin deposition (P <0.05) between the groups and that it possibly converges with the data found in the literature in which it could be established that in the GrH there is a different relationship in this pattern. The findings of the thickness of the middle layer were significant in the GrH when compared to the GrN (p <0.05), when this parameter is compared between the Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy (HDP) groups, microscopically the PE cases showed prominent changes. I n the present study, Tenney-Parker changes were prominent and discreet in 75% of the GrH placentas versus 20% in the GrN. However, there are contradictions in the literature regarding the consideration of this finding seen only in Hematoxylin-Eosin staining. Conclusion: Given the above, the presence of syncytial knots, the difference between vessel thickness and areas of fibrin deposition are possibly involved in the pathogenesis of Hypertensive Syndromes, regardless of age and established classifications ...
