    Introduction: The fungi of the genus Candida belong to the individual’s normal microbiota, that is, they coexist in a harmonious way with the organism, but in some cases this equilibrium is broken, triggering the candidiasis. Oral candidiasis is a type of candidiasis characterized by the appearance of whitish plaques that may be isolated or in a group causing pain and discomfort to the individual and due to the emergence and growth of conventional drug resistant strains, new possibilities of treatment have been sought. Objectives: To evaluate the antifungal potential of the oil of the species Caryocar coriaceum, in front of four species of Candida, Candida albicans; Candida glabrata; Candida krusei and Candida tropicalis isolated from pediatric patients undergoing antineoplastic treatment. Methodology: To perform the antifungal test, the strains were divided into four distinct groups, positive control, negative control, sterility control and test group, and then the minimum inhibitory concentration Results: The oil of the species Caryocar coriaceum failed to inhibit the growth of the strains tested. Conclusion: Although the oil of the species Caryocar coriaceum has not demonstrated antifungal activity, more tests should be performed, but under new extraction conditions, for a full proof if there is any component that has activity against Candida.


    Background: Child hospitalization is potentially a traumatic situation for the child, causing a break in his daily routine, habits of hygiene, sleep and food. In Pediatrics, you can not wear your clothes, you do not feed as you want and at the time you are accustomed, you experience impersonal treatment of the team and invasive treatment that can make adherence difficult. Conditions such as these can lead to the appearance of psychological reactions such as anxiety, fear and anguish, social repercussions such as difficulties of interaction and isolation. Humanizing the hospital environment in pediatric care may be an interesting solution to help cope with the adverse effects of hospitalization. Storytelling is a playful resource that favors coping with hospitalization and minimizing pain. Objective: To report the experience of using the history contact as a resource for humanization in the hospital context and coping with pain. Methodology: report of experience. Results and discussion: Storytelling can be fun and enjoyable for the child and his / her family, making him travel in the stories told in a few minutes, and draw attention away from discomfort, pain and suffering. It facilitated a social interaction that facilitates the mutual growth and exchanges of emotions, humanizing the hospital environment. It affects the children, their families and even the health team. In addition, it allowed to re-signify the patient’s own history from the fantasy present in the plot that is told. For storytelling, one can use the book as support or not to interact and actively insert the child into what is being narrated. Conclusion: The experience of storytelling by relaxing the child, taking the focus off the pain, allowed a playful experience and reflection on reality, reinventing what is happening in the hospital and itself, as well as the rescue of the right of the…


    Introduction: Aiming at the well-being of the population, it is necessary for health teams to work in an effective and integrated way, especially when it comes to childhood, which is the phase of greater personal development, thus supporting not only the child but all his family. To begin to work the interdisciplinarity still in the university is very relevant for the future professional formation of the students, because it brings a new look to the same ones, causing that they are able to draw up plans of more specific and individual care directed to the particularities of each patient. Objectives: To describe the interdisciplinary experience of the consultation to a newborn, considering its family context, based on a practice of the Project of Interdisciplinary Actions in Maternal and Child Health linked to the Federal University of Alagoas, Campus Arapiraca. Methodology: A descriptive study of the experience report, based on the experiences of Nursing and Psychology students who are part of the project, during an action taken in September 2018, at a basic health unit in the municipality of Arapiraca, Alagoas. Results: The consultation was directed by the unit’s nurse, and accompanied by the students of nursing and psychology. During the consultation, it was noticed from the physical examination that the newborn was jaundiced. The parents were very distressed because they did not know what to do to minimize this alteration that even with the sun baths did not present results, in addition they presented complaint of frequent and excessive crying of the baby, which was identified as aspect generating of stress and distress for parents. Given this, nursing and psychology acted together to meet the parents’ demands, thus, guidance and emotional support were offered in order to minimize the interference of stressors that could affect the family context and impair…

  • A Rare Case of Glandular Odontogenic Cyst With a Breif Review Of Literature

    Glandular odontogenic cyst (GOC) is an extremely rare cyst of jaw bone with only 182 cases documented so far in the English literature. GOC is considered to be a locally aggressive lesion with high rate of recurrence. Anterior mandible is the most common site of involvement for GOC, involvement of the maxillary bone which is a rare occurrence. The clinical and radiographic finding of GOC are varied & often pathognomic. As clinical & radiographic findings are overlapping with those of other odontogenic cyst, a careful histopathological examination is needed to arrive at a definite diagnosis of GOC. In the present paper we reported a rare case of GOC in a 23yrs old male involving maxillary bone along with a review of literature focussing on clinical & radiological presentation and treatment outcome.


    The paper discusses a unique technique developed initially at Nation Institute of Technology, Surat that is remodeled in real world applications. The concept consists primarily of a user-friendly software facilitating direct communication with any intelligent or learning system/robot operating under known parameters of motor specifications. Any software base permitting high level PC interface without ASCII interrupt can be used and here Visual Basic is represented for easy programing. This allow for a learning operation mode where a prevention of time lag implementation stores machine data based on movements by the machine stored or actions taught. Such learning aspects make the machine more efficient where the robot can either perform individual actions as needed or learn new methods for the same results and can perform a series of actions continuously. Using the stored data, the machine is also capable of autonomous movements based on the path of least resistance as calculated by the time it takes to perform an act. Unlike the ALPHA model, new and improved model is tested on a CNC 6 axis manufacturing machine This paper focuses on methodology of interface through VB programing and does not contain associated files to retain any possible patent applications.

  • Research on screening performance of double layer vibrating screen for soybean harvester based on discrete element method

    In order to improve the screening effect of grain combine harvester, it is necessary to study the influence of different screening parameters on screening performance.In this paper, discrete element method was used to simulate the screening process of soybean and short stems by selecting different screening parameters, and dynamic screening efficiency and the number of short stems under screening were introduced as evaluation criteria.The results show that under certain other conditions, the vibration frequency, amplitude and direction angle have significant influence on the screening performance, while the inclination angle of the upper screen has little influence on the screening performance. With the increase of vibration frequency, amplitude and direction angle, screening efficiency increased first and then decreased, while the number of short stalks under screening increased first and then decreased. Considering the screening efficiency and the number of short stalks under the screening, it is concluded that the screening performance is better when the amplitude is 25 mm, the vibration frequency is 4 Hz, the vibration direction angle is 25 degrees and the upper screening angle is 3 degrees. The simulation results are verified by field experiments, and the simulation results meet the requirements of field experiments.

  • Idiopathic Spontaneous Pneumoperitoneum: When Not to Operate

    Pneumoperitoneum is often a surgical emergency related to gastrointestinal tract perforation. On rare occasions, free intraperitoneal air can be present without any discernible cause and is considered Idiopathic Spontaneous Pneumoperitoneum (ISP). Deciding which patients with ISP can be managed conservatively would help prevent some patients from undergoing unnecessary surgery. We describe here two cases of successful management of ISP and the review of literature of ISP management for the past 29 years. In the first case, a patient with ISP with no significant abdominal symptoms was successfully managed nonoperatively. In the second case, a patient with ISP and symptoms of small bowel obstruction was successfully treated surgically with exploratory laparotomy and small bowel resection. We recommend conservative management for the subset of ISP patients with no sign of peritonitis or sepsis.

  • Essay on Sustainable Development of Ethiopia in Relation to Environmental Policy

    In the developing countries like Ethiopia most of the environmental problems are caused by underdevelopment. Millions continue to live far below the minimum levels required for a decent human existence, deprived of adequate food and clothing, shelter and education, health direct their efforts to development, bearing in mind their priorities and the need to safeguard and improve the environment. For the same purpose, the industrialized countries should make efforts to reduce the gap themselves and the developing countries, environmental problems are generally related to industrialization and technological development (Yared, 2017:17).

    INTRODUCTION: Chronic pain can be considered a pathology and not just a symptom, which negatively influences people’s quality of life, leading to a decrease in autonomy, isolation and impact on social life. In this context, considering the pain related to chronic health problems, it can be affirmed that Basic Care represents a strategic service due to its high capillarity and potential to identify health needs of the population by subsidizing the organization of care throughout the network. health services. OBJECTIVE: To discuss the role of Primary Care in the management of patients with chronic pain. METHOD: This is a descriptive study of a qualitative approach, carried out through literature review. DISCUSSION: Social determinants can be considered to have a strong impact on the prevalence of chronic diseases as well as their reflexes, such as pain. Social inequalities, differences in access to goods and services, low level of schooling and inequalities in access to information generally determine a higher prevalence of chronic diseases and diseases caused by these diseases. In this context, Primary Care plays a fundamental role because it represents a strategic service with high capillarity. CONCLUSION: Primary care has great potential to identify the health needs of the population by subsidizing the organization of care throughout the health services network, contributing to factors that negatively impact the health of the population, causing pain and suffering.
