Review article of Global Journal of Anesthesia and Clinical Research Presidency on elderly people with arterial hypertension and mellitus diabetes: literature review Santos, R. M. S1, Nascimento, A. Tenório 2; Gomes Filho, J. E. C3; Gomes, G.G 4 1Students of Speech Therapy course – UNCISAL, 2,3Students of Speech Therapy course – UNCISAL 4Assistant Professor of UNCISAL Introduction: Population aging is now a global event, determining greater growth of the elderly population in relation to the other age groups. The hearing loss due to aging is known as presbycusis, characterized by bilaterally decreased auditory acuity, generally for high frequency sounds, due to degenerative and physiological changes in the auditory system that have arisen with increasing age. Studies have shown that chronic diseases affecting the elderly may be related to hearing disorders. Among these diseases, the most frequent are diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Objective To describe the hearing loss of elderly patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) from a bibliographic survey. Methodology: This is a bibliographic review research carried out in the SciELO database. Inclusion criteria were: complete scientific papers published in the Portuguese language, published in the period from 2011 to 2015,that present in the title some of the descriptors: elderly, diabetes mellitus, systemic arterial hypertension. Results and Discussion: We found 27 articles, of which 7 were selected for the review, since the others did not present data relevant to the research, were duplicated and did not fit the other inclusion criteria. According to the research, drastic changes were observed when comparing the elderly living with DM and SAH with those without chronic diseases, also showing an adverse effect on the cochlea, resulting in the loss of hair cells that, through mechanotransition, detect the sounds. Conclusion: It can be observed that the elderly with DM and SAH presented ...

Review article of Global Journal of Anesthesia and Clinical Research Pharmaceutical care in the palliative care of the oncological patient Torres, G.S.S¹, Xavier, A.C.C¹, Silva, A.C.M¹, Oliveira, E.F.S¹, Silva, G.K.A¹, Cordeiro, R.P² ¹Pharmacy students of the Academic Center Tabosa de Almeida – Asces-Unita, Caruaru-PE, ²University Professor of the Academic Center Tabosa de Almeida – Asces-Unita, Caruaru-PE. Introduction: The oncology has been developing rapidly and the pharmacist’s main challenge is to be up-to-date with new studies about the subject. Palliative care is involved in the protection and responsibility for the patient’s well-being. This area requires a multidisciplinary team that cares for patients suffering from serious diseases, even if there is a possibility of cure. The purpose of pharmaceutical care is to analyze prescriptions, check drug interactions, dosages and side effects. Objetive: To identify the importance of the pharmacist in the palliative care of cancer patients. Methodology: Review of published researches from 2010 to 2017 in the Google Scholar, Scielo and Bireme databases, using the descriptors pharmaceutical care and Palliative Care. Results and Discussion: The pharmacist can intervene in therapy to reduce symptoms, as often the medications may be responsible for some of these symptoms. It can also check if the therapy can be well tolerated if it is being uncomfortable for the patient to receive a particular drug or suggest to the doctor in charge to replace a drug of unpleasant taste, for example. Pharmaceutical care in palliative care is focused on informing the health team about the availability of medicines, regarding pharmacotechnical possibilities and legal aspects, as well as patients and their families, about the correct use and storage of medicines. Conclusion: The presence of the pharmacist in palliative care is extremely important both in the patient’s medical treatment and in ensuring the necessary comfort to the patient and the promotion ...
