Body consciousness of people with intestinal stomach: A phenomenological study.

Body consciousness of people with intestinal stomach: A phenomenological study. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Mar-Apr;71(2):391-397 Authors: Marques ADB, Amorim RF, Landim FLP, Moreira TMM, Branco JGO, Morais PB, Santos ZMSA Abstract OBJECTIVE: to describe the bodily awareness of people with stomies. METHOD: a descriptive study with a qualitative approach, carried out in the Ostomized Association of the State of Ceará, through semi-structured interviews with ten people with intestinal stomies, according to Merleau-Ponty's phenomenological thinking. RESULTS: two categories of analysis emerged: The body that I have, in which the sensations of deficiency, imperfection and bad odor add to the feeling of strangeness towards one's own body, affecting the way of being in the world of each deponent; and The body that others perceive, in which the stoma is seen as an embarrassing and complex experience, since it hampers daily activities and conviviality with other people. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: The corporeal consciousness of Being-Stomp-in-the-world requires the movement to reconstruct the senses of the body from the body I have and from that which others perceive.

Acontroversial study recently published inJAMA Pediatrics has posed possible but largely unfounded links between autism and ultrasound technique and frequency. According to researchers from Boston University School of Medicine, there is a possible correlation between depth of ultrasound penetration during the first and second trimesters and autism. The researchers evaluated sonograms of 420 children, 107 with autism, 104 with developmental delay, and 209 with typical development. They looked at the frequency of ultrasound scans and penetration depth amongst the three groups. They found that mothers of children with au...

A new study from the National Institutes of Health has found that acute stroke patients who undergo MRI are highly susceptible to gadolinium leakage into the eyes. In astudy published inNeurology, the group of researchers led by Emi Hitomi, a post-baccalaureate intramural research training award fellow, evaluated 167 patients who received MRI exams upon being admitted to the hospital. Two hours and/or 24 hours after the MRI, patients underwent a fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging exam. Gadolinium leakage into ocular structures (GLOS) were identified in 76 percent of patients. At the two-hour exam, GLOS occ...
