Grayce Alencar Albuquerque,Marcelo Alves De Oliveira,Evanira Rodrigues Maia
Revista Saúde.Com , 2010,
Abstract: The cancer appears in a man’s life as na agressive patology, reing-echo negative at every their spheres, especially above the sexuality female, already sensetized historically for your sort’s relations. Thus, at this crucial moment the sexual upheavals are lived deeply, the emotional alterations, the corporal disfiguraments, the social isolamentos and affective, at last, to break of this conjuncture, interioriza it low auto-they esteem staff. In this way, this literary revision had as objective to disclose, from diverse literary compositions that approached the thematic one, the real historical trajectory of the cancer associated with the feminine sex, mainly reing-echo on its sexuality, until the current days. This is a reality that deserves special attention, a time that the displayed data, are important to inquire the dimension of the impact caused for the cancer in the feminine sex that with certainty, will serve as base for elaboration of strategies for the confrontation of such pathology.

Abstract: The provision of care by health professionals seems to be related to cultural patterns in which these workers are inserted. The relationship between culture and care becomes a challenge for the provision of health care to homosexual and bisexual population. Thus, this study aimed to identify the perception of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals and Transgenders in relation to the care received from health professionals, in the light of Cross-Cultural Theory. This is a qualitative, ethnographic study, conducted with 30 members of sexual minorities in Juazeiro do Norte, Brazil. The data analysis lead to the elaboration of five categories based on of the Theory of Cultural Care Diversity and Universality. The participants emphasized the constant violation of their rights to universal and equitable access to the National Health System, stating that they have suffered from prejudice and exclusion, as result of a heteronormative culture. They highlighted that homophobia and dehumanization of care have a strong relation to sexual orientation. The transvestites are the most prone to humiliation and pejorative attitudes of professionals and such condition is a barrier to accessing services.

Abstract: the objectives of this work were to evaluate different models, regarded to considered maternal effects, for growth traits and to estimate genetic parameters for these traits in canchim breed bovine, by one, two and multitrait analyses. the weight traits at birth, at weaning, standardized weight for 12, 18, 24 and 30 months of age in males and females, and mature female weight were analyzed using four models with random effects added in sequence. maternal effects influenced birth weight at 2 years of age and weaning weight was the most affected by maternal effects. direct heritability estimates obtained by two- and multitrait analyses were higher than those obtained through one-trait analyses. estimates of direct genetic effect heritability obtained using multi-trait analyses were 0.39 for weight at birth; 0.31 for weight at weaning; 0.29 for weight at 12 months of age; 0.28 for weight at 18 months of age; 0.26 for weight at 24 months of age; 0.30 for weight at 30 months of age and 0.38 for weight at mature age. genetic correlations estimated among weights at early ages and mature weight were high, above 0.79. selection based on growth traits at any age can promote intermediate genetic gains on the body weight of canchim breed animals at all standard ages, including weight at birth and at mature age of females. it is important to consider in the analyses the weights previous to selection to estimate genetic parameters for weights after selection. multitrait analyses is the best indicated.

Abstract: as a result of the advances in the control of pulmonary insufficiency in tetanus, the cardiovascular system has increasingly been shown to be a determining factor in morbidity and mortality but detailed knowledge of the cardiovascular complications in tetanus is scanty. the 24h-holter was carried out in order to detect arrhythmias and sympathetic overactivity in 38 tetanus patients admitted to an icu. the sdnn index (standard deviation from the normal r-to-r intervals), was useful in detecting adrenergic tonus, and ranged from 64.1 ± 27 in the more severe forms of tetanus to 125 ± 69 in the milder ones. sympathetic overactivity occurred in 86.2% of the more severe forms of the disease, but was also detected in 33% of the milder forms. half the patients had their sympathetic overactivity detected only by the holter. the most frequent arrhythmias were isolated supraventricular (55.2%) and ventricular (39.4%) extrasystoles. there was no association of the arrhythmias with the clinical form of tetanus or with the presence of sympathetic overactivity. the present study demonstrated that major cardiovascular dysfunction, particularly sympathetic overactivity, occurs in all forms of tetanus, even in the milder ones. this has not been effectively detected with traditional monitoring in icu and may not be properly treated.
