Abstract: The objective was to evaluate the practice of self-care of patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis. A descriptive, cross-sectional study developed in two outpatient valvopathies of teaching hospitals of Fortaleza/CE, from October 2013 to January 2014. The sample consisted of 127 patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis. It was held an interview using instrument based on the Theory of Orem’s Self-Care and Brazilian Guidelines for Valvular Heart Diseases. The data were presented in tables and charts. Results: Universal self-care practices of larger adhesion: body hygiene (97.6% washed-haired, daily-bath 92.1%); oral hygiene (brushing teeth before sleeping, 87.4%); fluid intake (drinking-water 95.2%); food intake (salt intake ≤ 2 g/day, 92.1%, fruit and vegetable consumption 79.5%); intestinal eliminations (without blood or mucus—96%, non-parasitic 94.4%); urinary elimination (no blood nor pus-96.8%, urination 4 to 6 times a day, 96%). As self-care developmental requirements predominated: never used illegal drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or stopped at the discovery of the disease (70%). As self-care health deviation requirements we have: making use of certain medication at the right dose (95.2%); attending medical appointments (cardiologist—92.1%; nursing—84.2%); INR control (identifies signs of bleeding— 85.8%). We conclude that patients did not perform all recommended self-care practices, being necessary to establish strategies to reduce the self-care deficit.

Abstract: this paper compares the methods for sizing rainwater reservoirs for non-potable uses provided by the brazilian standard nbr 15527/2007 and the municipal decree 293/2006 in the city of curitiba, state of parana (pr), in the south of brazil. to pursue that objective, five rainwater harvesting systems located in buildings in the city of curitiba were studied. the results obtained from those two methods varied significantly. in order to obtain volumes that are consistent with the harvesting of rainwater, the municipal decree equations should be revised in order to include rainfall data, roof size and the rainwater demands in their formulation. standardization of the names of the variables is suggested for the methods described in nbr 15527/2007, as well as the inclusion of more information about its equations, since the existing ambiguities may lead to misunderstandings. in order to decide on the best method, one should compare the different results and evaluate the available area for the construction of the reservoir, as well as its cost.

Abstract: Background: Suicide among physicians is a serious public health issue, with an extremely complex and multifactorial behavior. Aim: The aim of this study was to use the theme “Suicide among Physicians” to exemplify the analysis of methodological similarities between the scientific content available at MEDLINE and BVS databases, as scientific research tools. Methods: This is a systematic review with metanalysis. The following combinations of keywords were used for data search in the referred databases: “suicide” AND “physicians” AND “public heath”. Results: Three hundred and thirteen publications were identified, but only 16 studies were chosen. Great association was found between MEDLINE and BVS databases and the Odds Ratio regarding the theme: “Suicide among physicians”. Conclusions: Considering the similarities found in the utilization of the two analyzed databases, it was possible to identify that suicide among physicians is associated with the exercise of an important professional role in the society and in the workplace. With regard to scientific information, the p-value-obtained value (<0.05) seems to be statistically significant for the association between the suggested theme and the methodological similarities of the scientific information available in the analyzed databases. Thus, these open-access research tools are considered scientific reliable tools.

Abstract: Background The aim of this study was to document the types of diseases treated by the use of medicinal plants, their main applications and also to have a report of the major diseases treated at the Hospital of San Pablo de Huacareta (Chuquisaca Bolivia). Methods We conducted semi-structured interviews on the use medicinal plants with 10 local informants, and categorized the kinds of diseases treated by traditional medicine. We obtained reports of cases treated at the Hospital of Huacareta in order to compare the use frequency of traditional medicine and allopathic medicine for the treatment of recurrent diseases in the area. Results Our survey identified 258 traditional medicine uses, spanning a total of 13 diseases categories and including 91 native and exotic plant species and one unidentified sample plant type. Gastrointestinal disorders (55%) were most frequently treated with medicinal plants, followed by afflictions of the musculoskeletal system (25%) and dermatological disorders (24%). Hospital information indicates that the most common diseases are acute respiratory infections (47%) and acute diarrheal diseases (37%). The herbal remedies were mostly used in the form of teas and decoctions. The informants used mainly native plant species, although exotic species has been introduced to the pharmacopoeia. Conclusions The treatment of gastrointestinal disorders is the primary objective of the medical ethnobotany of the inhabitants of Huacareta, while respiratory system diseases are mostly treated in the hospital. Looking at the data from the Hospital records we can infer that gastrointestinal disorders are among the most common diseases in the study area. For most respondents, traditional medicine is a reliable choice for the care of their illnesses. However, the preference of the population for either traditional medicine or allopathic medicine needs to be clarified in future comparative studies to obtain more convincing results. The results presented can be used as a base for subsequent work related to traditional medicine and its contribution to allopathic medicine in San Pablo de Huacareta.

Abstract: The ischemic disorders, in which platelet aggregation and blood coagulation are involved, represent a major cause of disability and death worldwide. The antithrombotic therapy has unsatisfactory performance and may produce side effects. So, there is a need to seek molecules with antithrombotic properties. Marine organisms produce substances with different well defined ecological functions. Moreover, some of these molecules also exhibit pharmacological properties such as antiviral, anticancer, antiophidic and anticoagulant properties. The aim of this study was to evaluate, through in vitro tests, the effect of two extracts of brown algae and ten marine sponges from Brazil on platelet aggregation and blood coagulation. Our results revealed that most of the extracts were capable of inhibiting platelet aggregation and clotting measured by plasma recalcification tests, prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, and fibrinogenolytic activity. On the other hand, five of ten species of sponges induced platelet aggregation. Thus, the marine organisms studied here may have molecules with antithrombotic properties, presenting biotechnological potential to antithrombotic therapy. Further chemical investigation should be conducted on the active species to discover useful molecules for the development of new drugs to treat clotting disorders.

Abstract: Este trabalho foi realizado com o objetivo de tra ar o perfil clínico e laboratorial para o diagnóstico da erliquiose canina. Utilizaram-se 75 c es, de ambos os sexos, diferentes idades e ra as, da cidade de Salvador e regi o metropolitana, Bahia, incluídos na pesquisa a partir da suspeita clínica e por apresentar infesta o de carrapatos ou histórico de exposi o prévia ao vetor. Anticorpos anti-Ehrlichia canis foram encontrados em 98,66% (74/75) dos animais. A PCR foi positiva em 33,3% (25/75) dos c es, enquanto a presen a de mórulas foi positiva em 5,33% (4/75) dos suspeitos. Nos animais com PCR (Rea o da Polimerase em Cadeia) positivo, febre, desidrata o, mucosas hipocoradas e petéquias em membranas mucosas ou na pele e anemia, leucopenia, neutropenia, eosinopenia, linfopenia e trombocitopenia foram os sinais clínicos e laboratoriais estatisticamente significantes (p<0,05) mais freqüentemente encontrados. Canine Ehrlichiosis despite its high morbidy is an illness of great importance in the medical clinic of small animals. The great difficulty for the definitive diagnosis of this disease consists of the little use of more sensible and specific tests considering the clinical signals and more frequent hematological results as exclusive of the illness. This research aimed to provide the clinical-laboratorial profile in the diagnosis of canine ehrlichiosis of 75 dogs, of both sexes, at different ages and races, from Salvador and metropolitan region, Bahia state. The evaluated animals were dogs with clinical suspicion of Ehrlichiosis and tick infestation or description of previous exposition to that vector. Antibodies anti- E. canis were found in 98.66% (74/75) of the animals. The PCR was positive in 33.3% (25/75) of the dogs, while the presence of inclusions (morulae) was observed in 5.33% (4/75) of the suspected animals. Fever, dehydration, pale mucous membranes, petechiae of skin and mucous membranes; and anemia, leucopoenia, neutropenia, eosinopenia, lymphopenia, and thrombocytopenia were the most significant (p<0.05) clinical and laboratory indicators found in animals with positive PCR.
