Abstract: objective: although manual hyperinflation (mh) is widely used for pulmonary secretion clearance, there is no evidence to support its routine use in clinical practice. our objective was to evaluate the effect that mh combined with expiratory rib cage compression (ercc) has on the length of icu stay and duration of mechanical ventilation (mv). methods: this was a prospective randomized controlled clinical trial involving icu patients on mv at a tertiary care teaching hospital between january of 2004 and january of 2005. among the 49 patients who met the study criteria, 24 and 25 were randomly assigned to the respiratory physiotherapy (rp) and control groups, respectively. of those same patients, 6 and 8, respectively, were later withdrawn from the study. during the 5-day observation period, the rp patients received mh combined with ercc, whereas the control patients received standard nursing care. results: the two groups were similar in terms of the baseline characteristics. the intervention had a positive effect on the duration of mv, as well as on the icu discharge rate and murray score. there were significant differences between the control and rp groups regarding the weaning success rate on days 2 (0.0% vs. 37.5%), 3 (0.0% vs. 37.5%), 4 (5.3% vs. 37.5%), and 5 (15.9% vs. 37.5%), as well as regarding the icu discharge rate on days 3 (0% vs. 25%), 4 (0% vs. 31%), and 5 (0% vs. 31%). in the rp group, there was a significant improvement in the murray score on day 5. conclusions: our results show that the use of mh combined with ercc for 5 days accelerated the weaning process and icu discharge.

Abstract: Between August 2007 and June 2008, 105 lithiasic patients were distributed into 2 groups: Group 1 (n = 55): patients with IH (urinary calcium excretion > 250 mg in women and 300 mg in men with normal serum calcium); Group 2 (n = 50): normocalciuric patients (NC). Inclusion criteria were: age over 18 years, normal renal function (creatinine clearance ≥ 60 ml/min), absent proteinuria and negative urinary culture. Pregnant women, patients with intestinal pathologies, chronic diarrhea or using corticoids were excluded. The protocol of metabolic investigation was based on non-consecutive collection of two 24-hour samples for dosages of: calcium, sodium, uric acid, citrate, oxalate, magnesium and urinary volume. Food intake was evaluated by the three-day dietary record quantitative method, and the Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated and classified according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Sodium intake was evaluated based on 24-hour urinary sodium excretion.The distribution in both groups as regards mean age (42.11 ± 10.61 vs. 46.14 ± 11.52), weight (77.14 ± 16.03 vs. 75.99 ± 15.80), height (1.64 ± 0.10 vs. 1.64 ± plusorminus 0.08) and BMI (28.78 ± 5.81 vs. 28.07 ± 5.27) was homogeneous. Urinary excretion of calcium (433.33 ± 141.92 vs. 188.93 ± 53.09), sodium (280.08 ± 100.94 vs. 200.44.93 ± 65.81), uric acid (880.63 ± 281.50 vs. 646.74 ± 182.76) and magnesium (88.78 ± 37.53 vs. 64.34 ± 31.84) was significantly higher in the IH group (p < 0.05). There was no statistical difference in calcium intake between the groups, and there was significantly higher salt intake in patients with IH than in NC.This study showed that salt intake was higher in patients with IH as compared to NC.Renal lithiasis is a common disease affecting nearly 20% of the world population, and in approximately 95% of cases, it is associated with a metabolic disorder [1].Elevated sodium excretion in urine resulting from excessive sodium intake can lead to hypercalciuria and contribute to the for

PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0056913
Abstract: This study was designed to determine the genotoxicity of a supraphysiological dose of triiodothyronine (T3) in both obese and calorie-restricted obese animals. Fifty male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to one of the two following groups: control (C; n = 10) and obese (OB; n = 40). The C group received standard food, whereas the OB group was fed a hypercaloric diet for 20 weeks. After this period, half of the OB animals (n = 20) were subjected to a 25%-calorie restriction of standard diet for 8 weeks forming thus a new group (OR), whereas the remaining OB animals were kept on the initial hypercaloric diet. During the following two weeks, 10 OR animals continued on the calorie restriction diet, whereas the remaining 10 rats of this group formed a new group (ORS) given a supraphysiological dose of T3 (25 μg/100 g body weight) along with the calorie restriction diet. Similarly, the remaining OB animals were divided into two groups, one that continued on the hypercaloric diet (OB, n = 10), and one that received the supraphysiological dose of T3 (25 μg/100 g body weight) along with the hypercaloric diet (OS, n = 10) for two weeks. The OB group showed weight gain, increased adiposity, insulin resistance, increased leptin levels and genotoxicity; T3 administration in OS animals led to an increase in genotoxicity and oxidative stress when compared with the OB group. The OR group showed weight loss and normalized levels of adiposity, insulin resistance, serum leptin and genotoxicity, thus having features similar to those of the C group. On the other hand, the ORS group, compared to OR animals, showed higher genotoxicity. Our results indicate that regardless of diet, a supraphysiological dose of T3 causes genotoxicity and potentiates oxidative stress.

Abstract: In the school context, the development and education of children and adolescents involve inter-relations between emotion, cognition and socialization; in other words, emotional and social skills management cannot be disconnected from student learning. The aim of this study is to analyze teacher training in the early years of Primary Teaching through the reading, analysis and reflection of texts on Socio-emotional Competencies and Problem Solving. Audio recordings were used, along with their transcriptions, with a view to supplying the teachers’ words in their entirety, although for the article only extracts that were relevant to the understanding of the problem studied in this research were used. The conclusions indicate that Socio-emotional Education can contribute to the practice of teaching and teacher training. In addition to this, as reported by the teachers participating in the research, with the use of Problem Solving methodology in the teaching of mathematics in the classroom, space and opportunity have been gained for the development of Socio-emotional Competencies with students, improving the management of stress and conflicts in the school environment.

Abstract: the present study was aimed at investigating male batterers' family of origin's parental style, and its relationship with anxiety symptoms in such men, by comparing these variables with men without a history of domestic violence with similar age, socio-economic status, education and marital status. a sample of 20 batterers and 20 men without a violence history was utilized. the instruments in portuguese included: a batterer's family of origin semi-structured interview, the parental style inventory, and the beck anxiety inventory (bai). both groups did not differ statistically in regards to age, socio-economic status, education and marital status. however, the groups were statistically different in terms of the variables family of origin's parental style and anxiety. it is suggested that anxiety, combined with family of origin's inappropriate parenting, may contribute to intimate partner violence. future studies could further investigate this possibility using larger samples.

Abstract: interest in research and economic analysis related to child labor reappears in the literature around 1995, mainly due to a growing emphasis on the reduction of poverty and the accumulation of human capital to obtain economic development, which means that child labor is seen as an impediment to economic progress. empirical analysis to find the causes, consequences and solutions for child labor are now being facilitated by the increase in the availability of high quality microdata and ease of obtaining computational data. poverty, parents' education, family composition, gender of the head of the household, age parents started working and the household location are the most analyzed and important determinants to explain the allocation of the child's time to work. the most important social-economic consequences of child labor are related to the reduction in years of education, school performance, wages and health status. the objective of this study is to present a summary of what is known in the economic literature related to child labor and to indicate directions for future research.
