Ecosystemic and gerontotechnological actions in complex nursing care to the elderly with ostomy.

[Ecosystemic and gerontotechnological actions in complex nursing care to the elderly with ostomy]. Rev Bras Enferm. 2014 Jan;67(1):91-6 Authors: Barros EJ, Santos SS, Gomes GC, Erdmann AL, Pelzer MT, Gauterio DP Abstract The goal was to identify the ecosystem and gerontogeriatric technological actions to be done in a complex nursing care for the elderly patients of ostomy. To do so, a qualitative and descriptive research was made on a Case Study. The data were collected through interviews. The elderly were classified due to the Functioning, Disability and Health. They also went through physical exams and systematic observation. Ten people from the Estomatherapy Service of the south of Brazil took part in the research along the period of June to August of 2012. A theoretical model was developed and the data were compared with a protocol. The ecosystem actions identified the construction of a therapeutic environment, the guaranty of physical access and environmental adaptation. The gerontogeriatric technological actions identified a health educative process, the routing to the support group and the material and necessary equipment distribution for self-care. Being the nursing care primordial for the elderly patients of ostomy, they are able to face their limitations, demystifying their deficiency/ disability /health. PMID: 24676074 [PubMed - in process]

This study aims to analyze the early clinical and radiological outcomes of treatment on SS&DH by using newly developed minimal invasive TESSYS-ISEE technique.MethodsPatients with limp and unilateral lower limb radiculopathy underwent minimal invasive surgery by using TESSYS-ISEE technique. The visual analogue scale score (VAS) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) were evaluated before operation and 1, 3, 6 and 12  months after surgery. The clinical global outcomes were also evaluated using modified MacNab criteria after surgery.ResultsA total of 32 cases underwent operation by using TESSYS-ISEE technique from December ...

ConclusionThe highest PSC costs were observed in the USA, with rehabilitation services being the main cost driver. Due to diversity in reporting, it was not possible to conduct a detailed cost analysis addressing different segments of services. Further approaches should benefit from the advantages of administrative and claims data, focusing on inpatient/outpatient PSC cost and its predictors, assuring appropriate resource allocation.

In conclusion, gene therapy methods for bone regeneration are systematically becoming more efficient and show proof-of-concept in clinically relevant animal models. Yet, on the pathway to clinical use, more investigation is needed to determine the safety aspects of the various techniques in terms of biodistribution, toxicity, and tumorigenicity.

AbstractGenetic counselors adopt seemingly contradictory roles: advocating for individuals with genetic conditions while offering prenatal diagnosis and the option of selective termination to prevent the birth of a child with a disability. This duality contributes to the tension between the disability and clinical genetics communities. Varying opinions exist amongst the disability community: some value genetic services while others are opposed. However, there is limited research exploring the opinions of individuals with a disability regarding issues related to reproduction and genetic services in the context of personal e...

AbstractTraumatic brain injury (TBI) is the main cause of disability in people younger than 35 in the United States. The mechanisms of TBI are complex resulting in both focal and diffuse brain damage. Fractal dimension (FD) is a measure that can characterize morphometric complexity and variability of brain structure especially white matter (WM) structure and may provide novel insights into the injuries evident following TBI. FD-based brain morphometry may provide information on WM structural changes after TBI that is more sensitive to subtle structural changes post injury compared to conventional MRI measurements. Anatomic...
