Silva, Gilmar de Oliveira Barros;Gondim, Ana Paula Soares;Monteiro, Mirian Parente;Frota, Mirna Albuquerque;Meneses, André Luis Lima de;
Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-790X2012000200016
Abstract: objective: to analyze polypharmacy (daily use of two or more) of continuous use medication and its associated factors in the elderly. methods: a cross sectional study conducted with elderly individuals living in an urban area of the municipality of quixadá, ceara, brazil from may to december, 2009. the sample consisted of 384 individuals who were 60 years old or older and users of continuous medication. the variables studied were sociodemographic, economical, and health characteristics related to use of medications. for the analysis of the association between the dependent variable polypharmacy of continuous-use medication and the independent variables a logistic regression model was developed. results: results showed a predominance of females, between 60 and 69 years old, married, with incomplete elementary school education, non-paid job, family income of one minimum salary, living in their own home and together with up to three individuals. a prevalence of 70.6% of polypharmacy in the elderly was found, and it was higher in women (66.4%). factors positively associated with the use of two or more continuous-use medication were: family income over one minimum salary (or 2.83; ci95% = 1.54-5.32); two or more self-reported chronic conditions (or 17.71; ci95% = 9.80-31.990) and self-perception of regular to poor quality of life (or 2.85; ci95% = 1.60-5.07). conclusions: the study observed a practice of polypharmacy of continuous-use medications in the elderly with family income over one minimum wage, two or more chronic conditions and self-perception of regular to poor quality of life. such status leads to questions on social, cultural, economic and health aspects.

Saulo Coelho Cunha,Mirian Parente Monteiro,Jo?o Macedo Coelho Filho
Revista Brasileira de Ciências do Envelhecimento Humano , 2010,
Abstract: O presente trabalho foi desenvolvido entre outubro de 2006 e maio de 2007 em um hospital público de ensino da cidade de Fortaleza onde participaram 50 idosos com idade igual ou superior a 60 anos. O objetivo do estudo foi avaliar o perfil e adequa o dos medicamentos prescritos para pacientes idosos internados tendo como base os Critérios de Beers, Critérios Canadenses e indicadores suecos de qualidade da farmacoterapia em idosos. Do total de 50 pacientes idosos admitidos no estudo, 42% eram homens e 58% eram mulheres. Metade dos idosos se encontravam na faixa etária dos 60 a 69 anos. Considerando-se os Critérios de Beers e Canadenses, 84% dos pacientes tiveram prescri es de medicamentos a serem evitados. Foram contabilizados 17 medicamentos com potencial de inadequa o em idosos e o mais freqüentemente prescrito foi metoclopramida, seguido de óleo mineral e diazepam. Os resultados mostraram que um percentual elevado recebeu prescri o de medicamento inadequado, demonstrando a necessidade de um melhor acompanhamento de prescri es voltadas para o paciente idoso.
Carbon Capture and Storage and the UNFCCC: Recommendations to Address Trans-Boundary Issues  [PDF]
Viviane Romeiro, Virginia Parente
Low Carbon Economy (LCE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/lce.2012.323017
Abstract: This paper is mainly focused on the eligibility of trans-boundary Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project activity and it aims to explore a broad range of CCS transboundary issues whereby the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and national governments could take into consideration. Much work is still to be done by the CCS community (including the Institute) to ensure that the implementation of CCS under the CDM is both environmentally effective and commercially attractive. The recommendations focus on technical issues, with the aim of helping Parties evaluate a robust strategy for CCS as part of international negotiations and establish CCS best practice criteria for governments and the international process, thereby enhancing transparency and ensuring that CCS deployment is safe and effective. When considering CDM projects activities with a transboundary component, it is recommend that the rules of the main international treaties related to CCS be considered by the UNFCCC, especially the London Protocol guidelines for risk assessment and management and the 2006 IPCC Guidelines. Additionally, national governments should apply the rules and guidelines as delineated under the relevant existing international treaties and CCS national regulations.
Paleoamericans in Northeast Argentina  [PDF]
Daniel Loponte, Mirian Carbonera
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2017.52005
Abstract: In this paper, we present a brief synthesis of the record of Fell or Fishtail points found in northeast Argentina, including the first two records for Misiones province. To date, 11 pieces have been identified in the region, which demonstrate techno-morphological similarities with specimens recovered in different areas of South America, which are linked to Paleoamerican groups of the Pleistocene-Holocene boundary. Although these points are still scarce in this area, this is probably due to the lack of research and issues related to archaeological visibility. These new records increase the density of findings of these early hunter-gatherers on the South American Atlantic slope.

Silva, Joaquim José de Lima;Lima, Antonia Artemisa Aurélio Soares;Dantas, Thalita Brito;Frota, Mariana Hadassa Alencar da;Parente, Ramon Veras;Lucena, Ana Luiza Sá Pinto da Nóbrega;
Revista Brasileira de Cirurgia Plástica , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1983-51752011000400018
Abstract: background: mandible fractures are most often caused by direct trauma, but occasionally, pathologic fractures may occur due to tumor lesions. the surgical approach is determined by the type and the location of the mandible fracture. this study aimed to evaluate the epidemiological profile of 70 patients who suffered mandible fracture and underwent surgery at instituto dr. josé frota (fortaleza, ce) between january 2005 and december 2009. methods: we analyzed medical records of 70 patients who underwent surgical treatment for mandibular fractures and assessed gender, age, skin color, anatomic site of fracture, etiology, associated fractures, treatment, hospitalization and complications. results: there was male predominance (90%) among patients, with a mean patient age of 28.25 + 11.04 years. most patients (80%) were caucasian and from small towns (68%). the most affected jaw sites, in descending order, were the parasymphysis region, body, and angle. the major cause was traffic accidents (70%), with motorcycle accidents being the most prevalent (55.7%). the main associated facial fractures were maxilla fracture type le fort and zygomatic-orbital. surgical treatment was carried out with rigid internal fixation in most patients (75%). the only complication was infection in one patient. conclusions: reduction and fixation of mandibular fractures should occur as accurately and quickly as possible, since malocclusion is an important long-term complication. in our study, we did not observe such a complication; there was only one case of infection. concurrent with the findings of other studies, there was a prevalence of young adult males among patients, and traffic accidents were the main cause. the fractures were frequently located in the parasymphysis region and were corrected through rigid internal fixation in 75% of cases.

Sociologia, Problemas e Práticas , 2006,
Abstract: this article aims to discuss the linkages between the concepts of change and learning when applied to organizational contexts. it seeks to demonstrate that the theoretical perspectives of organizational change can enrich sociology when complemented by psychology?s theoretical approaches to organizational learning. the argument is based on the relevance of this suggested theoretical linkage to knowledge production processes within organisations.
Artefactos y textos: algunas aporías en la "hermenéutica artefactual" de Dennett
Parente, Diego;
Scientiae Studia , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-31662008000300004
Abstract: this paper attempts to discuss the problem concerning interpretation of technical artifacts in daniel dennett's perspective. first, it tries a critical reconstruction of dennett's claims about functional attributions by analyzing his emphasis in the interpreter constructive dimension and, on the other hand, it focuses on his lack of attention about prior conditions of interpretation of texts and artifacts. the second part of this article is dedicated to discuss the range of dennett's analogy between texts and artifacts in order to suggest, finally, some alternative ideas about attribution and interpretation of functions.
La concepción heideggeriana del artefacto en Grundbegriffe der Metaphysik
Parente, Diego;
Signos filosóficos , 2008,
Abstract: in his course die grundbegriffe der metaphysik. welt-endlichkeit-einsamkeit (1929/1930) heidegger devises a distinction between organ and tool whose objective is to characterize organism in order to compare it to man. the objective of this article is to examine the limits between the organic and the artificial in order to determine to what extent such distinctions -although they could be considered marginal in the german philosopher's work- can contribute to understand the ontological status of artefacts. this paper tries to show how these heideggerian thesis about the distinction organ/tool can be reinterpreted in a coherent way through the idea of technical design.
Función técnica y normatividad: Acerca de algunas dificultades conceptuales del modelo searleano
Revista iberoamericana de ciencia tecnolog?-a y sociedad , 2010,
Abstract: this paper critically explores the thesis exposed in john searle's the construction of social reality about functional attribution, in order to determine some of his limitations in its application to scope of technical artefacts and their functionality. in order to clarify that problem, this article is divided into two parts. the first one offers a reconstruction of searlean vocabulary and its emphasis in normativity. in the second part, some delicate elements of searle's theory are discussed and an alternative approach to function in technical objects is suggested.
La idea de malfunción en artefactos técnicos
Revista iberoamericana de ciencia tecnolog?-a y sociedad , 2010,
Abstract: this article attempts to make some clarifications about the problem of normativity in the field of technical artifacts. for this purpose two strategies are presented. the first one contrasts technical and non-artificial objects through a comparison between artifactual and biological functions. the second strategy is to characterize the idea of 'malfunction' and to show its scope and peculiarities, to finally reconstruct conditions required for a legitimate attribution of artifactual malfunction.
