The expectations of fathers concerning care provided by midwives to the mothers during labour
Malmsey L.M. Sengane,Anna G.W. Nolte
Health SA Gesondheid , 2012, DOI: 10.4102/hsag.v17i1.527
Abstract: Midwives have been criticised for neglecting the expectations and needs of fathers. They either ignore the fathers or pressure them into becoming more involved than they would choose, if allowed to provide support to the mothers during labour. Whilst midwives are providing woman-centred care, it is important that they remember to involve the fathers in decision-making and to acknowledge their role, expectations and needs, because the birth of a child is one of the most important events in a person’s lifetime. This study focused on fathers’ expectations of the care provided to mothers by the midwives during labour. A qualitative, explorative, descriptive and contextual study design was utilised. In-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with fathers about the care provided to their partners or wives by midwives. Data were then analysed with an open descriptive method of coding that is appropriate for qualitative research. The results of the interviews were subsequently positioned within a holistic health-promotive nursing theory that encompassed body, mind and spirit. The results revealed that fathers saw the provision of comfort and support as the two main aspects for mothers in labour that they expected from midwives. The findings were that midwives should improve their communication skills with the mothers, as well as with the fathers if they are available. Fathers expected midwives to encourage them to accompany the mother during labour and to facilitate bonding between father, mother and baby. The results of this study should assist midwives to provide holistic quality care to mothers and fathers during labour. Opsomming Vroedvroue word daarvan beskuldig dat hulle nie voldoen aan die verwagtinge en behoeftes van die vaders nie. Vaders word, óf deur hulle ge gnoreer, óf druk word op hulle uitgeoefen om meer betrokke te raak as waarmee hulle gemaklik is, indien hulle wel toegelaat word om moeders te ondersteun tydens die kraamproses. Vroedvroue verskaf moeder-gesentreerde sorg, maar dit is nogtans belangrik dat hulle onthou om die vaders te betrek in die besluitneming en hulle rol, verwagtinge en behoeftes te erken omdat die geboorte van ‘n kind een van die belangrikste gebeurtenisse in hulle lewens is. Die studie het gefokus op vaders se verwagtinge van die sorg wat verskaf word aan moeders tydens kraam. ‘n Kwalitatiewe, eksploratiewe, beskrywende en kontekstuele navorsingsontwerp is gebruik. Data is ingesamel deur in-diepte onderhoude met vaders te voer oor die sorg wat aan hul vroue of metgeselle tydens die kraamproses verskaf word deur vroedvr
The influence of fasting/refeeding on the lipoprotein lipase activity of adipose tissue and muscle
Botion, L.M.;
Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-879X2001001100006
Abstract: lipoprotein lipase activity in adipose tissue and muscle is modulated by changes in the pattern of food intake. we have measured total lipoprotein lipase activity in adipose tissue and muscle of male wistar rats (n = 6-10), weighing 200-250 g (~12 weeks), during the refeeding/fasting state following 24 h of fasting. lipoprotein lipase activity in tissue homogenates was evaluated using a [3h]-triolein-containing substrate, and released [3h]-free fatty acids were extracted and quantified by liquid scintillation. adipose tissue lipoprotein lipase activity did not completely recover within 2 h of refeeding (60% of refed ad libitum values). cardiac lipoprotein lipase activity remained increased even 2 h after refeeding (100% of refed ad libitum values), whereas no significant changes were observed in the soleus and diaphragm muscles. adipose tissue lipoprotein lipase activities were consistently higher than the highest skeletal muscle or heart values. it is therefore likely that adipose tissue, rather than muscle makes the major contribution to triacylglycerol clearance. there was concomitant relatively high lipoprotein lipase activity in both adipose tissue and cardiac muscle during the first few hours of refeeding, therefore cardiac muscle may contribute significantly to triacylglycerol clearance during this period. the results suggest that during fasting, increased lipoprotein lipase activity provides a complementary source of free fatty acids from circulating triacylglycerol, allowing the heart to maintain its continuous, high-energy expenditure.
Mathematical Analysis of the Correction Factor for Analysing Space Frame under the Action of Horizontal Crane Load
L.M. Olanitori
Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This research attempts to analytically investigate, the effect of the space nature of an industrial frame building on its strength. The above subject matter is divided into two parts; the mathematical analysis of the correction factor and design procedures of an industrial frame building considering its space nature. This study examines only the first part of the above subject matter that is the analytical investigation of the effect the space nature of an industrial frame building on its strength in the form of a correction factor. The result obtained shows that frame structures are being over loaded if their space nature is not considered, hence, leading to uneconomic design.
Hilos de agua, lazos de sangre: enfrentando la escasez en el desierto de Lavalle (Mendoza, Argentina)
L.M. Torres
Ecosistemas , 2008,
Abstract: En el trabajo se analizan las posibles relaciones existentes entre las dinámicas de uso de los recursos naturales y las estrategias de localización de las unidades domésticas en el territorio, dentro de espacios rurales de desierto que poseen una oferta ambiental limitada. Cómo, en el marco de qué estrategias, los grupos humanos convierten distintas porciones de la naturaleza en recurso natural? y cómo usan y administran esos recursos en procura de asegurar su propia reproducción social? Para avanzar en esta dirección se analiza un estudio de caso (el desierto de Lavalle, provincia de Mendoza, Argentina) y, dentro de él, se procede con las técnicas cualitativas de entrevista en profundidad y observación participante. Los datos que se presentan sugieren que en los territorios analizados rurales, emplazados en tierras secas, afectados por desertificación y con elevados índices de pobreza- las limitaciones que impone el medio ambiente son sobrellevadas en alguna medida- mediante una estrategia de localización íntimamente relacionada con el proceso de producción, que maximiza el acceso de determinados recursos naturales y que "ordena" la competencia por ellos con los vecinos y parientes.

Importance of best Human Resource Management Practices and the need for a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) for the Public Health Sector in Sri Lanka
L.M. Mujeeb
Sri Lanka Journal of Bio-Medical Informatics , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.4038/sljbmi.v3i2.2449
Abstract: Human Resource (HR) management practices are essential for delivering effective healthcare services in hospitals. To maximise the usage of available HR, an effective and prudent HR management policy is essential. Special emphasis is necessary with regard to the HR management of public sector doctors and dental surgeons. A Health Resource Information System (HRIS) is helpful in achieving this. Such a system should be sustainable and affordable.

Fungal photobiology: a synopsis
L.M. Corrochano
IMA Fungus , 2011,
Abstract: Fungi respond and adapt to many environmental signals including light. The photobiology of fungi has been extensively investigated, but in recent years the identification of the first fungal photoreceptor, WC-1 in the ascomycete Neurospora erassa, and the discovery that similar photoreceptors are required for photoreception in other ascomycete, basidiomycete and zygomycete fungi has allowed the molecular characterization of light reception and the early steps of signal transduction in a number of model fungi. This contribution is based on presentations made at the Special Interest Group Meeting on "Fungal Photobiology" held during IMC9. The contributions summarize the current status of fungal photobiology in Aspergillus nidulans, Neurospora erassa, Mucor eireinelloides, and Coprinopsis cinerea.
