Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the admission of children aged 0 to 5 years due to respiratory infections at a major hospital in the Southern region of the city of S o Paulo. Methods: A total of 4,240 clinical records of children hospitalized and diagnosed with pneumonia, bronchopneumonia, bronchiolitis and bronchitis were evaluated for the 2008-2009 period, based on age, gender and year season. Results: Out of this total of children aged 0 to 60-months, 139 (3.2%) presented with pneumonia, with a slight predominance in female babies, and 73.4% occurred between 12 and 60 months (102 cases), particularly during the winter. No significant difference was found as to gender in bronchopneumonia. Age range and year seasons showed to be significant. As regards to bronchiolitis, there was a slight increase in male babies (253 cases) aged less than 12 months and in the autumn season. A total of 182 (4.3%) presented with bronchitis, mainly boys (101 cases) in children aged 12 to 60 months, predominantly during autumn/summer seasons. Conclusion: The assessment of admissions of children aged 0 to 5 years due to respiratory infections at a major hospital at the Southern region of the city of S o Paulo, in the 2008-2009 period, showed that respiratory diseases affect age groups, and gender in a different way occurring in specific periods of the year.

Abstract: objective: the purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between body adiposity and postural control in elderly women. introduction: aging and obesity account for a significant portion of healthcare spending. life expectancy is increasing worldwide, and rio de janeiro has the largest proportion of elderly residents of all brazilian states. methods: a total of 45 women underwent bioelectrical impedance analysis, waist circumference measurements, weight and height measurements, and stabilometric tests in eight different stance conditions (opened and closed bases with both eyes opened and closed and right and left tandem and unilateral stances with eyes opened). during unilateral stances, the number of hand or foot contacts was counted. results: weight, body mass index, waist circumference, fat percentage, and fat mass showed statistically significant (p,0.05) and positive correlations with the number of contacts made during unilateral stances. the subjects with greater fat mass showed significantly higher anterior-posterior standard deviation and range when their eyes were closed. the sway area was also greater for this group in opened base when their eyes were closed. discussion: the results relating body adiposity and postural control can be explained by the difficulty of maintaining a greater quantity of body fat mass within the limits of the individual support base, especially while assuming a unilateral stance. conclusion: the subjects with a greater fat mass exhibited poor balance control, indicating that body adiposity level was associated with postural control in the elderly women examined in the present study.
