Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy Athropometric Standards of Children Assisted by Ngo, According to the Growth Curves of WHO CAVALCANTE, N.R.S1; NEVES, L.N.S1; FREIRE, A.G.1; SILVA, K.S1; RAMOS, R.C.F3; SILVA, E.V1; ANJOS, F.B.R1. Federal University of Pernambuco/UFPE1, Federal University of Pernambuco/UFPE2. Based on the socioeconomic conditions are, in most cases, factors crucial to the growth and development of children and adolescents, this study aims to analyze the demographics of children served by PROCRIU NGO, located in the City Recife Pernambuco. The height of children was checked with fixed metal anthropometer to the wall, according to the WHO criteria, the Frankfurt plane; while the weight was obtained by positioning the center of the scale, with little clothing as possible; the data (height, weight and BMI) were recorded and later applied to the WHO curves. The percentage of children between z-scores (+3) and (+2) was 11.3 %, indicating that there is an obesity, according to their age, height and wheight10. The children overweight (z-score corresponded to 18 % of the studied Among these children, 61 % are eutrophic, rating given by z-scores: > (- 2) and <(+1) have children with unsatisfactory weight account for 9 % of the total, with 4.5 % classified as thin and markedly thin as 4.5 % Keywords: anthropometry, WHO, malnutrition, undernourishment ...

Schuum. (Cactaceae) aerial parts preparation is used to treat inflammatory disorders and cancer in Nigerian ethnomedicine hence the need to study its antioxidant properties and to evaluate the toxicity profile. Methods: The dried, ground, aerial parts of Rhipsalis neves armondii were extracted with a mixture of methanol and dichloromethane (1:1). The obtained extract (RNE) was employed for antioxidant and sub chronic toxicity studies. Antioxidant activity was determined using two in vitro models: ferricyanide reducing power assay and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging assay, while ascorbic acid was used as standard antioxidant agent. Sub chronic toxicity tests were performed on some hematological and biochemical parameters such as total leukocyte count, differential white blood count and levels of the liver marker enzymes, in rats. Results: The results showed that the RNE exhibited potent reducing power activity with mean absorbance value of 1.34 compared to 0.85 of ascorbic acid. The extract also produced a concentration-dependent percentage increase in DPPH radical scavenging activity at tested doses with IC40 values of 360 µg/ml and 130 µg/ml doses for RNE and ascorbic acid, respectively. There was no significant difference (p<0.05) in the liver marker enzymes (ALT, AST and ALT) and hematological parameters (neutrophils, lymphocyte, monocyte, eosinophil) of the animals at tested doses of the extract. The results also ...

Construction of Map of Health of V Regional Management of Pernambuco Health

Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy Construction of Map of Health of V Regional Management of Pernambuco Health BEZERRA, P.B1; FREITAS, J.M.M1; PACHECO, I.C.O1; LOPES, L.G.F1; SOUZA, R.AA. Federal University of Pernambuco1 Map of Health it is a geographical description of distribution of human resources, activities and services offered by the Unified Health System and the private sector, considering the existing installed capacity, investments and performance measured from indicators of health. Aims to enable the orientation of the decision of managers and support the definition of guidelines, objectives and health goals, as well as the preparation of the Annual Programming of Health and the conformation of care networks. The aim of this study is to report the construction experience of the Map of Health of the V Regional Health Management of Pernambuco (GERES), in year 2012. This is a descriptive study, where the construction of the Map of Health of  V Regional was conducted by a multidisciplinary health team, consisting of professionals from nursing, nutrition, physical therapy, pharmacy, psychology and social work. The regional data were investigated, the year 2012 through the national database, available from health information systems. The Map of Health presented data from the following items: socio-sanitary conditions; structure of the health system; supply and coverage of health activities and services; health care networks; flows access; financial resources; work management and health education; science, technology, production and innovation in health; health management. Despite the ease of access to this data, it realize a lack of integration, quality and presentation by these information systems. Integration failures of health data incur multiple, repetitive and disjointed information systems. The variability clippings prevents intersectoral actions are planned together. For this reason, it is important the development of the Map of Health by an interdisciplinary team, aiming to expand the ...

Accompaniment of Mental Health Patients in the Public Sector: Strategies in Pharmaceutical Care and Psychoeducation

Article of Research Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmacy Accompaniment of Mental Health Patients in the Public Sector: Strategies in Pharmaceutical Care and Psychoeducation ROCHA, M.F1¹; SILVA, J.A.S² University of Pernambuco - UPE¹ Caruaruense Association of Higher Education and Technica - ASCES² Compared with the current public health reorganization model, this paper aims to contribute to the strengthening of interdisciplinary actions in centers that promote care in mental health, in particular for the joint work of professionals in the fields of Pharmacy and Psychology, paying attention to the challenges and advances in psychosocial restructuring process. Systematic review of qualitative studies in the period from 08.27.15 to 10.04.15 on the basis of virtual platforms(Scielo, among others). aimed to investigate the scientific literature the results obtained through the use of concomitant psychoeducation with the pharmacological treatment, the latter being well led through the device of pharmaceutical care in the treatment of these users of public mental health services. As results, it was possible to identify the difficulties in differentiating the concepts of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach, as well as integrated pharmaceutical practice and psychologists. The construction of new projects and their development can not be fruit of solitary endeavors of professionals, the provocation that is present in this work is how the pharmaceutical care combined with psychoeducation may contribute to the production of care, generating such devices: connection, protection,responsibility and autonomy of network users. It can be concluded that mental health centers should constitute fertile field for new forms of atencionar to patients there seeking the services thus interdisciplinary work requires novelty seeking with regard to role models multidisciplinary, thus showing that both proposed strategies appeared consistent with the ultimate goal which is a psychosocial rehabilitation, leading this user empowerment of its existence.
