Cross-cultural adaptation of the Myocardial Infarction Dimensional Assessment Scale (MIDAS) to the Brazilian Portuguese language

Resumo A partir da avalia ção dos fatores que incidem na qualidade de vida (QV) é possível planejar as intervenções que proporcionam melhoria do bem-estar dos pacientes. Realizar a adaptação transcultural do questionário Miocardial Infarction Dimensional Assessment Scale (MIDAS) para língua portuguesa, buscando as equivalências semântica, idiomática, conceitual e cultural. Foi utilizado o referencial teórico de Guillemin, Bombardier e Beaton, cumprindo as seguintes etapas: tradução, retrotradução, avaliação dos autores, banca de juízes e pré-teste. Após todas as avaliações, foram alcançadas as equivalências semântica, conceitual, idiomática e cultural. A escala mostrou-se de fácil aplicação e importância clínica. O MIDAS encontra-se validado no que se refere às equivalências semânticas, idiomáticas, conceituais e culturais. Posteriormente, será avaliada a equivalência de me nsuração, para verificar as propriedades psicométricas.Abstract From the evaluation of the factors that affect quality of life (QOL) it is possible to plan interventions that lead to the improved well-being of patients. The scope of this study was to conduct the cross-cultural adaptation of the Myocardial Infarction Di...

Predictors for post-sepsis myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke are yet to be identified due to the competing risk of death. Baseline comorbidities and sources of infection were associated with an increased risk of post-sepsis MI and stroke. The identified risk factors may help physicians select a group of patients with sepsis who may benefit from preventive measures, antiplatelet treatment, and other preventive measures for post-sepsis MI and stroke.

We report a 30-year-old woman with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis who developed a type 2 non-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) during her first alemtuzumab infusion cycle. While acute coronary syndrome has been described with alemtuzumab in the treatment of lymphoma, alemtuzumab-associated cardiac ischemia in multiple sclerosis is uncommon and can occur in patients without cardiovascular risk factors.

An in-depth look at violence and its relation to schizophrenia. Is violence a symptom of schizophrenia? Do mass attackers always have schizophrenia? Are schizophrenics dangerous? Studies say people with schizophrenia are more likely to be a victim of a crime than the perpetrator. However, James Holmes, the movie theater mass murderer, was said to have paranoid schizophrenia. And a person can plead not-guilty by reason of insanity in court. This seems to be contrary to the idea of non-violence in mental illness. Host Rachel Star Withers, a diagnosed schizophrenic, and co-host Gabe Howard delve into these intense subjects i...
