Care management for tuberculosis: from education to the nurse practice.

[Care management for tuberculosis: from education to the nurse practice]. Rev Bras Enferm. 2013 Dec;66(6):847-53 Authors: Barrêto AJ, Evangelista AL, Sá LD, Almeida SA, Nogueira Jde A, Lopes AM Abstract The study aimed to analyze the relation between the training of the nurse and the actions directed to the management of the care to the tuberculosis. With qualitative nature, it was performed in one of the cities of the metropolitan region of João Pessoa-PB. The subjects were ten nurses of the Health Family Strategy. The data collection was performed in February 2010 using a semi structured interview script. To examine the empiric material it was used the technique of content analyzes. In the testimonies of the nurses there was predominance of the thematic TB in the hospital space; they approach either the superficiality and the distance of the care to TB related to the relation between the theory and the practice, and the absence of direct care to the patient of TB during training; according to them, the organization of the services points to a mechanicist and task based practice. One concluded that there is necessity of training institutions to come close to the health services, in a dialogic relation, to organize better the learning spaces.

How much of the natural human variation in longevity and pace of aging has its roots in genetics, and how much is determined by lifestyle and environment? Some gene variants result in beneficial metabolic alterations such as lower cholesterol or a greater resilience in the face of the molecular damage of late old age. Lifestyle choices such as calorie intake and exercise clearly influence long term health and mortality. Similarly, exposure to pathogens and pollutants can accelerate the pace of aging via their interaction with the immune system. The consensus of the past few decades had come to be that the split is around 2...

Authors: Oh JY, Lee YS, Min KH, Hur GY, Lee SY, Kang KH, Rhee CK, Park SJ, Shim JJ Abstract Background: Patients with tuberculosis-destroyed lungs (TDLs), with airflow limitation, have clinical characteristics similar to those of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Acute exacerbation is an important factor in the management of TDL. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the factors associated with acute exacerbations in patients with stable TDL with airflow limitation. Methods: We evaluated the clinical characteristics, such as lung function, image findings, and serum labora...

Comparative Evaluation of Molecular Tests Vis-à-Vis Culture and Treatment Response in the Diagnosis of Cutaneous Tuberculosis. Skinmed. 2018;16(5):301-303 Authors: Malhotra S, Nair D, Ramesh V, Sehgal VN Abstract The clinical diagnosis of cutaneous tuberculosis (CT) was based on criteria of reinfection and reactivation. Laboratory tests are mandatory but have limitations, thus demanding continuous innovation. In our study, we took punch biopsies from lesions on 48 patients. Half of these biopsies underwent histopathologic investigation, and the other half were analysed using the BACT Alert 3D s...
