Abstract: objective: to identify blood pressure values and estimate the frequency of risk factors for hypertension among middle school students. methods: this was a descriptive, cross sectional study, conducted in schools in the southeastern region of brazil. the sample consisted of 184 adolescents enrolled in the second semester of middle school, in 2009. in addition to the measurement of clinical variables, instruments were applied to identify risk factors associated with hypertension. results: an alteration in blood pressure was a parameter detected in 22.3% of the sample. among the risk factors investigated, family history of cardiovascular disease and alcohol consumption were the most prevalent. conclusion: there is need to enhance the measures of primary prevention and early detection of arterial hypertension among adolescents, with special attention to the assessment of family history and adoption of risk habits.

Abstract: TEMA: altera o de fala em respiradores orais. OBJETIVO: o presente estudo investigou através de levantamento bibliográfico dos últimos dez anos o perfil de fala em respiradores orais. CONCLUS O: constata-se a necessidade em realizar estudos mais profundos sobre este assunto para identificar as características da fala dos respiradores orais. Tais informa es s o muito úteis para o fonoaudiólogo, tanto para a realiza o de uma boa avalia o como no melhor atendimento destes indivíduos. BACKGROUND: alteration of speech in mouth breathers.

Revista CEFAC , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-18462006000400010
Abstract: purpose: to compare from a perceptual perspective the vocal characteristics of enka and mudo enka japanese singing genre. methods: ten recordings, from commercially available cds, of five professional japanese singers who sing the enka genre and five of the mudo enka genre were selected. we elaborated a voice evaluation protocol with vocal characteristics found in both genres of japanese music. the evaluation was carried out by three speech pathologists, licensed by the speech pathology federal board, who determined the most outstanding vocal characteristics of each genre, from a literature-based stratification. results: in the enka genre, the kobushi, the vibrato and crescendos and decrescendos were present in 100% of the vocal samples. we found 80% of metal, 90% of nasality and registration alternation and 70% of soprosity. in the mudo enka genre, the crescendos and decrescendos were present in 100% of the vocal samples. we found 70% of soprosity, 90% of vibrato, 50% of registration alternation, 40% of metal and 20% of nasality and kobushi. conclusion: when comparing the two genres, enka and mudo enka, we verified the strong presence of kobushi in the enka genre, along with a larger predominance of vibrato, metal, nasality, alternation of registrations and crescendos and decrescendos. the soprosity was found in equal rates in both genres. the identification of vocal characteristics is useful for the speech pathologist as well as singing professors when helping their clients (singers) during the learning of the japanese singing or in its improvement.
Coordinated Transmissions to Direct and Relayed Users in Wireless Cellular Systems

Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: The ideas of wireless network coding at the physical layer promise high throughput gains in wireless systems with relays and multi-way traffic flows. This gain can be ascribed to two principles: (1) joint transmission of multiple communication flows and (2) usage of \emph{a priori} information to cancel the interference. In this paper we use these principles to devise new transmission schemes in wireless cellular systems that feature both users served directly by the base stations (direct users) and users served through relays (relayed users). We present four different schemes for \emph{coordinated transmission} of uplink and downlink traffic in which one direct and one relayed user are served. These schemes are then used as building blocks in multi-user scenarios, where we present several schemes for scheduling pairs of users for coordinated transmissions. The optimal scheme involves exhaustive search of the best user pair in terms of overall rate. We propose several suboptimal scheduling schemes, which perform closely to the optimal scheme. The numerical results show a substantial increase in the system--level rate with respect to the systems with non--coordinated transmissions.

Revista Brasileira de Reumatologia , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0482-50042011000600011
Abstract: amyloidosis is a generic term that refers to the deposition of amyloid fibrils in bodily tissues. its onset is usually after 40 years of age, with localized or systemic involvement associated with multiple myeloma or chronic inflammatory diseases, and can mimic various rheumatic syndromes. we report the case of a patient with amyloidosis associated with multiple myeloma, showing clinical characteristics of pseudomyopathy

Abstract: systemic lupus erythematosus juvenile (slej) is a multi-systemic, chronic inflammatory disease, and with autoimmune features. some clinical manifestations of this disease are similar to those found inacquired immunodeficiency syndrome (aids). coexistence of aids with slej is rare, especially in the pediatric population, being described in the literature just 5 patients with congenital hiv infection who developed this rheumatological condition, presenting lupus nephritis as the initial manifestation. we report the case of a 14 year old patient, diagnosed with hiv infection at 8 months of age, with signs and symptoms of slej. this report aims to describe a female patient with aids who developed sle in its classic and forms, but has evolved satisfactorily

Abstract: objectives: to evaluate patients treated for traumatic injuries and to identify adherence to guidelines recommendations of treatment and association with death. the recommendations adopted were defined by the committee on trauma of the american college of surgeons in advanced trauma life support. methods: retrospective cohort study conducted at a teaching hospital. the study population was victims of trauma > 12 years of age with injury severity scores > 16 who were treated between january 1997 and december 2001. data collection was divided into three phases: pre-hospital, in-hospital, and post-mortem. the data collected were analyzed using epi info. results: we analyzed 207 patients, 147 blunt trauma victims (71%) and 60 (29%) penetrating trauma victims. trauma victims had a 40.1% mortality rate. we identified 221 non adherence events that occurred in 137 patients. we found a mean of 1.61 non adherence per patient, and it occurred less frequently in survivors (1.4) than in non-survivors (1.9; p=0.033). according to the trauma score and injury severity score methodology, 54.2% of deaths were considered potentially preventable. non adherence occurred 1.77 times more frequently in those considered potentially preventable deaths compared to other non-survivors (95% ci: 1.12-2.77; p=0.012), and 92.9% of the multiple non adherence occurred in the first group (p=0.029). conclusions: non adherence occurred more frequently in patients with potentially preventable deaths. non adherence to guidelines recommendations can be considered a contributing factor to death in trauma victims and can lead to an increase in the number of potentially preventable deaths.

Online Brazilian Journal of Nursing , 2008,
Abstract: The high occurrence rates of Hodgkin’s Lymphomas and the treatment-associated complications as well as the complication of the disease itself evidence the need for a technical-scientific training of nurses in order to provide health care to this population. In this sense, this study had the aim to identify the nursing care described in the literature for these patients subject to chemotherapy treatment. An integrative review of the 15 eligible articles was carried out. Findings show that the generated knowledge is aimed at the epidemiological aspects of the disease, therapeutic forms, besides nursing interventions. Regarding the latter, the teaching process, use of coping and technical-technological procedures were found appropriate and feasible
