Abstract: Introduction: The prevalence of asthma has grown considerably in recent decades, but some studies have shown stabilization of this trend. The masticatory process of asthmatic children may be altered due to asthma-related anatomo-functional changes. Objective: The study objective was to determine the clinical and electromyographic characteristics of the masticatory process in asthmatic children and compare the electrical activities of their masseter and anterior temporal muscles (at rest and during maximal voluntary contraction and mastication) with those of non-asthmatic children. Method: Case study. Asthmatic and non-asthmatic groups, each consisting of 30 children of both sexes between 6 and 10 years of age, were evaluated. Mastication was evaluated clinically and electromyographically in all subjects. RESULTS: The masticatory process did not differ significantly between asthmatic and non-asthmatic children. Conclusion: Although the masticatory process did not differ significantly between asthmatic and non-asthmatic children, the masticatory process of asthmatic children may be altered because of anatomical changes of Asthma.

Revista Brasileira de Educa??o Física e Esporte , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1807-55092009000400010
Abstract: the objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of overweight and obesity, the correlation between body mass index (bmi) and indices: waist hip ratio (whr) and waist circumference (cc) and to compare between genders, the relationship between the indices in patients of down syndrome (ds) aged 15 to 44 years. the sample consisted of 33 individuals of ds residents in the cities of itaperuna - rj and bom jesus itabapoana - rj, being 15 females aged between 14 and 38 years (mean ± sd, 23.8 ± 7.4 years, bmi = 29.67 ± 5.64 kg/m2) and 18 males aged between 14 and 44 years (mean ± sd, 26.4 ± 8.4 years, bmi = 27.68 ± 5.97 kg/m2). the anthropometric measures of body mass, height, waist and hip, were used to obtain the bmi, the whr and wc. the level of association between variables was obtained by spearman and pearson tests. the highest correlation coefficients between the variables bmi and wc in male groups (r = 0.926, p = 0.000), female (r = 0.874, p = 0.000) and overall (r = 0.892, p = 0.000). thus, the strongest associations between bmi and anthropometric indicators suggest that these cc integrated indicators are good predictors of general and central obesity, in patients with ds.

Health (Health) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/health.2015.74049
Abstract: This is a qualitative study that aims to describe the opinion of nursing students on the use of an educational hypermedia on Peripheral Venipuncture. We interviewed 16 nursing students of a private university on second semester of 2014. The interviews allowed the identification of units of meaning and categorization by content analysis and led to four categories: influence of hypermedia on learning, educational technology as support to teaching classroom, contribution of hypermedia for professional practice and access difficulties. Hypermedia showed positive results as most scholars reported that the material helped in learning and generated autonomy and interactivity in the moment of studying. However some reported difficulties in access hypermedia related mainly to the server used. So hypermedia proved to be a valuable tool to use, since it favored the learning and aroused the interest and curiosity of students.
