Assessment of the measurement properties of the Brazilian versions of the Functional Status Score for the ICU and the Functional Independence Measure in critically ill patients in the intensive care unit
RESUMO Objetivo: Comparar as propriedades de medida (consist ência interna, confiabilidade intra e interavaliadores, validade do construto, e efeitos teto e piso) da Escala de Estado Funcional para UTI (FSS-ICU - Functional Status Score for the ICU) e da Medida de Independência Funcional (MIF)-domínio motor). Métodos: Neste estudo de propriedades de medi da, a FSS-ICU e a MIF foram aplicadas em 100 pacientes (72,1 ± 15,9 anos; 53% masculino; Sequential Organ Failure Assessment = 11,0 ± 3,5 pontos; Simplified Acute Physiology Score 3 = 50,2 ± 16,8 pontos) na unidade de terapia intensiva na linha de base e após 2 horas pelo fisioterapeuta 1 (teste e reteste) e 30 minutos após a linha de base pelo fisioterapeuta 2. As propriedades de medidas avaliadas foram a consistência interna (alfa de Cronbach), as confiabilidades intra e interavaliadores (coeficiente de correlação intraclasse), a concordância (erro padrão de medida), a diferença m ínima detectável com confiança de 90%, os efeitos teto e piso (frequência de pontuação máxima e mínima) e a validade do construto (correlação de Pearson). Resultados: Para a FSS-ICU e a MIF, foram encontradas adequadas consistência interna (alfa de Cronbach: FSS-ICU = 0,95 e MIF = 0,86), confiabilidades intra e interavaliadores para pontuação geral da FSS-ICU e...
AbstractTo explore primary care professionals ’ perceptions of physical activity and other cancer rehabilitation practice in cancer survivors, investigating the preparedness to implement guidelines regarding cancer rehabilitation. We collected qualitative data through seven semi-structured focus group interviews with 48 rehabilitation profess ionals, with mean 9 years of experience in primary care rehabilitation (32 physiotherapists, 15 occupational therapists, and 1 rehabilitation assistant) in a primary care setting. Data was analyzed using content analysis. Primary care rehabilitation professionals expressed ...

ConclusionA review of the literature identified only few cases of closed avulsion of FDS tendons nonpathologically. Early diagnosis and intervention can prevent sequel of flexion contracture.
ConclusionMRI may detect clinically insignificant injuries within the calf complex. If an athlete does not have any clinically relevant symptoms, abnormal signal on MRI may represent a different diagnosis to muscle strain. Signal change on MRI proximal to scar tissue may represent reactive oedema. Clinical history and examination should be correlated with radiological findings is recommended when diagnosing calf injury in elite athletes.

a Zorena Dysmenorrhea often significantly reduces the quality of women’s life and is still an important public health problem. Despite numerous studies, the pathomechanism of dysmenorrhea is not fully understood. Previous research indicates the complexity of biochemical reactions between the endocrine, vascular, and immune systems. Prostaglandins play a major role in the pathomechanism of dysmenorrhea. In contrast, cytokines and other proinflammatory factors in primary dysmenorrhea are less studied. In addition to the applied pharmacotherapy, more and more studies proving the effectiveness of non-pharmacologi...
This study highlights the complexity and immediacy of the embodied learning of touch and its interactions with the development of professional identity. Negotiation of boundaries, both seen and unseen, creates jeopardy in that process through the first two years of the course. PMID: 32053416 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Results suggest pain neuroscience education is a feasible intervention and when combined with dance may have a positive impact on pain intensity. PMID: 32053057 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
