Robust older adults in primary care: factors associated with successful aging

CONCLUSION The prevalence of robust older adults in primary care is considered satisfactory for the older population in general but decreases with age and is associated with the absence of diseases and disabilities. These results denote the need to redesign the health care system, focusing on promoting and preventing clinical-functional vulnerability.RESUMO OBJETIVO Estimar a preval ência de robustez entre idosos assistidos na atenção primária à saúde e identificar fatores de envelhecimento bem-sucedido. MÉTODOS Trata-se de pesquisa transversal, realizada com idosos no norte de Minas Gerais, Brasil. Foram utilizados dois questionários para coleta de dados: Brazilian O lder Americans Resources and Services Multidimensional Function Assessment Questionnaire (BOMFAQ) e Índice de Vulnerabilidade Clínico-Funcional (IVCF-20). As razões de prevalências ajustadas foram obtidas por análise de regressão de Poisson múltipla com variância robusta. A análise estatís tica foi realizada para os idosos em geral (60 a 107 anos) e estratificada por idade: de 60 a 79 anos e 80 anos ou mais. RESULTADOS Participaram 1.750 idosos, com idade de 60 a 107 anos, sendo 48,7% robustos. Idosos de 60 a 79 anos (n = 1.421) e 80 anos ou mais (n = 329) apresentaram prevalência de robustez de 55,4% e 19,3%, respectivamente. Associaram-se ao envelhecimento bem-sucedido: autopercep&cc...

CONCLUSIONS In this Caribbean population, uncontrolled asthma was independently associated with obesity, late-onset disease, and comorbidities of sleep apnea and depression. Poor asthma-related quality of life was independently associated with Indo-Caribbean ethnicity. PMID: 32493146 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: In left and right stroke rehabilitants with equally mild neglect, those with left stroke had higher stroke severity, cognitive and total disability and dependence level. Neglect severity correlated with right or left stroke severity and functional ability, moderate to severe neglect correlated significantly more with functioning. Neglect severity was independently associated with functional outcome in right stroke. PMID: 32488286 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis and prognosis related to depression can be predicted at an individual subject level by integrating low-cost variables, such as demographic and clinical data. Future studies should assess longer follow-up periods and combine biological predictors, such as genetics and blood biomarkers, to build more accurate tools to predict depression course.

Abstract Depression is a common mental disorder characterized by high incidence, high disability, and high fatality, causing great burden to the society, families, and individuals. The changes in brain plasticity may be a main reason for depression. Recent studies have shown that exercise plays a positive role in depression, but systematic and comprehensive studies are lacking on brain plasticity changes in depression. To further understand the antidepressive effect of exercise and the changes in brain plasticity, we retrieved related literatures using key words "depression," "depressive disorder,&q...

osa S Abstract BACKGROUND: During 24-hour on-call shifts medical residents are exposed to diverse circumstances such as sleep deprivation and stress. OBJECTIVE: Our aim is to assess the effect of 24-hour on-call shifts on medical residents' headache-related disability. METHODS: The Migraine Disability Assessment Scale (MIDAS), the Headache Impact Test (HIT-6), the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) questionnaires were administered to medical residents who had never performed on-call shifts at baseline and 6 months after beginning 24-hour on-call sh...

Even with the demonstrated success of TKA and a higher prevalence of arthritis and arthritis related disability among minorities, racial and gender disparity remains a constant issue in providing care for the adult reconstruction patient.
