ABSTRACT

Objetivou-se avaliar se as variáveis do ambiente e as sociodemográficas e clínicas do familiar e do lactente verticalmente exposto ao Vírus da Imunodeficiência Humana (HIV) interferem nas oportunidades no domicílio para o desenvolvimento motor infantil. Estudo transversal, no Sul do Brasil, entre dezembro de 2015 a setembro de 2017, com 83 familiares e seus respectivos lactentes verticalmente expostos ao HIV, utilizando dois instrumentos: questionário do lactente e familiar e o Affordances in the Home Environment for Motor Development - Infant Scale. Análise com correlação de Pearson e Spearman e regressão linear simples. As oportunidades foram moderadamente adequadas, com associações positivas significativas entre as variáveis idade do familiar e do lactente, escolaridade e possuir irmão exposto ao HIV e as dimensões espaço físico, variedade de estimulação, brinquedos de motricidade grossa e fina. Conclui-se que as variáveis sociodemográficas do familiar e do lactente interferiram nas oportunidades para desenvolvimento motor infantil no domicílio.


The objective of this study was to evaluate whether the environment and the sociodemographic and clinical variables of the family member and the infant vertically exposed to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) interfere in the home opportunities for infant motor development. This is a cross-sectional study, in Southern Brazil, carried out between December 2015 and September 2017, with 83 family members and their respective infants vertically exposed to HIV, using two instruments: infant and family questionnaire and the Affordances in the Home Environment for Motor Development - Infant Scale. Analysis was performed with Pearson and Spearman correlation and simple linear regression. Opportunities (affordances) were moderately adequate, with significant positive associations between the variables of age of the family member and infant, education level, and presence of a sibling exposed to HIV and the dimensions of physical space, variety of stimulation, and toys for gross and fine motor skills. We conclude that the sociodemographic variables of the family member and the infant interfered in the opportunities for infant motor development at home.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Determinar la prevalencia y severidad de caries de infancia temprana severa y factores de riesgo asociados en una poblaciónn de niños de 6-36 meses de edad, que asisten a guarderías estatales del área metropolitana de la ciudad de Guatemala. Materiales y métodos: Diseño analítico transversal. Se examinaron clínicamente 110 niños de 13 a 36 meses de edad para determinar el estado de caries según los criterios del Sistema Internacional de Detección y Valoración de Caries (Kappa 0.69). Además, se determinaron las características sociodemográficas, hábitos de alimentación e higiene dental a través de una entrevista a las madres de los participantes y se realizó análisis descriptivo de estas variables. Para determinar la relación entre variables se aplicaron las pruebas estadísticas U de Man Whitney y Tau-b de Kendall. Resultados: Se encontró una prevalencia de caries de infancia temprana severa de 81.8%. En promedio cada individuo presentó 6.74 lesiones cariosas (IC 95% 5.62 - 7.92). El número promedio de lesiones no cavitadas fue 6.06 y de lesiones cavitadas fue 2.51. Se encontró que la edad y el porcentaje de superficies dentarias con presencia de placa están significativamente asociados con las caries de infancia temprana severa. Conclusiones: La alta prevalencia de caries (81.8%) y el carácter reversible de 2/3 de las lesiones encontradas demanda intervenciones preventivas de salud dental en esta población.


Objetivo: Determinar a prevalência e a gravidade de cáries precoce na infância e fatores de risco associados em uma população de crianças de 6 a 36 meses que frequentam creches estaduais na região metropolitana da Cidade da Guatemala.Material e métodos: Projeto analítico transversal 110 crianças de 13 a 36 meses de idade foram examinadas clinicamente para determinar o status de cárie de acordo com os critérios do Sistema Internacional de Detecção e Avaliação de Cárie (Kappa 0,69). Além disso, as características sociodemográficas, hábitos alimentares e higiene dental foram determinadas por meio de entrevista com as mães dos participantes e análise descritiva dessas variáveis. Para determinar a relação entre as variáveis, foram aplicados os testes estatísticos U de Man Whitney e Tau-b de Kendall. Resultados: A prevalência de cárie na primeira infância foi de 81,8%. Em média, cada indivíduo apresentou 6,74 lesões de cárie (IC95 % 5,62 - 7,92). O número médio de lesões não cavitadas foi de 6,06 e as cavitadas foram de 2,51. Verificou-se que a idade e a porcentagem de superfícies dentárias com presença de placa estão significativamente associadas à cárie precoce. Conclusões: A alta prevalência de cárie encontrada (81,8 %) e do tipo reversível foi de 2/3 das lesões encontradas demandam intervenções preventivas de saúde bucal nessa população


Objective: To determine the prevalence and severity of early childhood caries and the associated risk factors, in a population of 6 to 36 months old children that attend governmental daycares in the metropolitan area of Guatemala City. Methods: Cross-sectional analytical design 110 children from 13 to 36 months of age were clinically examined to determine caries status according to the criteria of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (Kappa 0.69). In addition, sociodemographic characteristics, eating and dental hygiene habits were established through a survey done to the mothers of the participants. To determine the relationship between variables, the statistical tests U of Man Whitney and Tau-b of Kendall were applied. Results: There was an 81.8% of prevalence found of severe early childhood caries. In average, each subject showed 6.74 carious lesions (IC 95% 5.62 ­ 7.92). The average number of non-cavitated lesions was 6.06 and 2.51 for cavitated lesions. It was found that age (τb = .224, p = .001) and the percentage of dental surface with plaque (τb = 0.352 p = .002) are significantly associated with severe early childhood caries. Conclusion: The high prevalence from found caries (81.8%) and the reversible type of 2/3 from the found lesions, show a need of preventive interventions of dental health in this population

Material y métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo, transversal, retrospectivo poblacional de los recién nacidos durante un período de 8 meses. Se estudiaron once variables: presencia o no de anquiloglosia, tipo de frenillo corto, talla, peso, perímetro craneal, sexo, Rh y grupo sanguíneo, edad gestacional, malformaciones y patologías neonatales asociadas, de forma confidencial y anónima, correlacionándolas para ver si existía alguna asociación entre ellas. Resultados: Un total de 306 recién nacidos fueron incluidos en el estudio (52% varones y 48% mujeres). La prevalencia de anquiloglosia fue del 6,54% (n=20). Del total de varones (159/306), el 8,125% (n=13) presentaban anquiloglosia, mientras que en mujeres (147/306), la prevalencia fue del 4,79% (n=7), sin encontrar diferencias estadísticamente significativas respecto al sexo (p-valor=0,24). Según la clasificación de Coryllos, el tipo II fue el más frecuente (95% de los casos) y el 4,58% de los lactantes con anquiloglosia exhibieron patología/malformación. Conclusiones: La prevalencia de anquiloglosia en recién nacidos en Andorra, Europa, es similar a la observada por otros autores en investigaciones similares. No se observó asociación entre la presencia o no anquiloglosia y las variables estudiadas.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To identify the factors associated with clinical deterioration recognized by a Pediatric Early Warning Score. Method: A cross-sectional study conducted in a tertiary pediatric public hospital with 271 children aged from zero to ten, hospitalized between May and October 2015. For the identification of the children with and without signs of clinical deterioration, the translated, adapted and validated version of the Brighton Pediatric Early Warning Score was applied to the Brazilian context. Logistic regression analysis and prevalence ratio (PR) were used to measure the association between the variables studied. A 95% Confidence Interval (CI) and p value were adopted as a measure of statistical significance to identify potential associated factors. Results: The factors associated with the clinical deterioration of the children studied were age ≤ 2 years old (p=0.000), hospitalization in the emergency unit (p=0.000), comorbidity (p=0.020) and clinical diagnosis of respiratory disease (p=0.000). Conclusion: Children ≤ 2 years old, with comorbidity, diagnosed with respiratory disease and hospitalized in the emergency unit showed an increased likelihood of clinical deterioration. The identification of factors associated with clinical deterioration may alert and direct the health team to children more susceptible to this phenomenon.


RESUMEN Objetivo: identificar los factores asociados al deterioro clínico reconocido por una Puntuación Pediátrica de Alerta Temprana. Método: estudio de corte transversal realizado en un hospital público pediátrico terciario con 271 niños de cero a diez años de edad, hospitalizados entre mayo y octubre de 2015. Para identificar a los niños con y sin signos de deterioro clínico, se aplicó la versión traducida, adaptada y validad del Brighton Pediatric Early Warning Score para el contexto brasileño. Se utilizaron el análisis de regresión logística y la relación de prevalencia (RP) para medir la asociación entre las variables estudiadas. Se adoptaron el Intervalo de Confianza (IC) del 95% y el Valor de p como medida de significancia estadística para identificar los potenciales factores asociados. Resultados: los factores asociados al deterioro clínico de los niños estudiados fueron los siguientes: edad ≤ 2 años (p=0,000), internación en la unidad de emergencia (p=0,000), comorbilidad (p=0,020) y diagnóstico clínico de enfermedad respiratoria (p=0,000). Conclusión: los niños con una edad máxima de 2 años, con alguna comorbidad, con diagnóstico de enfermedad respiratoria e internadas en la unidad de emergencia presentaron una mayor probabilidad de deterioro clínico. Identificar factores asociados al deterioro clínico puede servir como alerta y orientar al equipo de salud hacia los niños más susceptibles a este fenómeno.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La estimulación temprana es el conjunto de acciones que se brindan a un niño o niña en los primeros años de vida para evitar retraso en el desarrollo psicomotor. Objetivo: Evaluar el impacto de la estimulación temprana en el desarrollo psicomotor de lactantes. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio observacional, descriptivo y prospectivo de 60 lactantes con estimulación temprana, atendidos por el Grupo Básico de Trabajo 1, perteneciente al área de salud Camilo Torres Restrepo de Santiago de Cuba, desde junio del 2016 hasta igual periodo del 2018. Resultados: Predominaron el sexo masculino (32 para 53,4 %) y el grupo etario de 1 a 3 meses (48 para 80 %). El antecedente prenatal con mayor influencia negativa fue la anemia carencial presente en 36 madres (60,0 %) y el apgar bajo, como antecedente natal, se halló en 17 lactantes (28,3 %), siendo necesario el uso de oxígeno en 20 de ellos (33,3 %). Las principales alteraciones presentadas resultaron ser la tortícolis (25 para 41,6 %) y la hipotonía (23 para 38,3 %). La mayoría de los pacientes evolucionaron favorablemente (54 para 90,0 %). Conclusiones: El impacto de la estimulación temprana en el desarrollo psicomotor fue positivo, pues se logró la evolución favorable de los lactantes.


Introduction: The early stimulation is the group of actions that are offered to a boy or girl in the first years of life to avoid delay in the psychomotor development. Objective: To evaluate the impact of the early stimulation in the psychomotor development of infants. Methods: An observational, descriptive and prospective study of 60 infants with early stimulation was carried out, they were assisted by the 1 Work Basic Group, belonging to the health area of Camilo Torres Restrepo in Santiago de Cuba, from June, 2016 to the same period in 2018. Results: There was a prevalence of the male sex (32 for 53.4 %) and the 1 to 3 months age group (48 for 80 %). The prenatal record with more negative was the deficiency anemia present in 36 mothers (60.0 %) and the low apgar, as natal record, was found in 17 infants (28.3 %), being necessary the oxygen use in 20 of them (33.3 %). The main disorders presented were the torticollis (25 for 41.6 %) and the hypotonia (23 for 38.3 %). Most of the patients had a favorable clinical course (54 for 90.0 %). Conclusions: The impact of the early stimulation in the psychomotor development was positive, because the favorable clinical course of the infants was achieved.

ABSTRACT

Introducción. El virus sincicial respiratorio (VSR) es el principal agente causal de la infección respiratoria aguda baja (IRAB) en pediatría. Los niños prematuros tienen mayor riesgo de complicaciones asociadas con esta infección. Los objetivos fueron describir y comparar las características clínicas y epidemiológicas asociadas a IRAB por VSR en niños/as nacidos pretérmino y a término, y establecer predictores de letalidad en los prematuros.Métodos. Estudio prospectivo, transversal, de pacientes ingresados por IRAB, en el período 2000-2018. El diagnóstico virológico se realizó mediante inmunofluorescencia indirecta o reacción en cadena de la polimerasa con transcriptasa inversa de aspirados nasofaríngeos. Se registraron las características clínico-epidemiológicas. Se desarrolló un modelo de regresión logística múltiple para establecer los predictores de letalidad en prematuros.Resultados. Se incluyeron 16 018 casos de IRAB; 13 545 (el 84,6 %) fueron estudiados; 6047 (el 45 %) positivos; VSR predominó en el 81,1 % (4907); mostró un patrón epidémico estacional; el 14 % (686) fueron prematuros.Los prematuros mostraron mayor frecuencia de comorbilidades, antecedentes respiratorios perinatales, cardiopatía congénita, desnutrición, enfermedad respiratoria crónica, displasia broncopulmonar, hospitalización previa por IRAB y enfermedad neurológica crónica (p < 0,001); requirieron más cuidados intensivos, mayor tiempo de internación y mayor tasa de letalidad (p < 0,01). La cardiopatía congénita fue predictor independiente de letalidad por VSR en prematuros [OR 3,67 (1,25-10,8), p = 0,01].Conclusión. VSR mostró un patrón epidémico, afectó a prematuros con ciertas comorbilidades con mayor morbimortalidad que los de término. La letalidad por VSR en prematuros se asoció con la cardiopatía congénita.


Introduction. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of acute lower respiratory tract infection (ALRTI) in pediatrics. Preterm infants are at a higher risk for complications. We aimed to describe and compare the clinical and epidemiological characteristics associated with ALRTI due to RSV in preterm and term infants and to establish the predictors of fatality among preterm infants.Methods. Prospective, cross-sectional study of patients admitted due to ALRTI in the 2000-2018 period. Viral diagnosis was done by indirect immunofluorescence or reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction in nasopharyngeal aspirates. Clinical and epidemiological characteristics were recorded. A multiple logistic regression model established the predictors of fatality among preterm infants.Results. A total of 16 018 ALRTI cases were included; 13 545 (84.6 %) were tested; 6047 (45 %) were positive; RSV was prevalent in 81.1 % (4907), with a seasonal epidemic pattern; 14 % (686) were preterm infants.Comorbidities, perinatal respiratory history, congenital heart disease, malnutrition, chronic respiratory disease, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, prior hospitalization due to ALRTI, and chronic neurological disease (p < 0.001) were more common among preterm infants; they required more intensive care and a longer length of stay, and had a higher fatality rate (p < 0.01). Congenital heart disease was an independent predictor of fatality due to RSV among preterm infants (OR: 3.67 [1.25-10.8], p = 0.01).Conclusion. RSV showed an epidemic pattern and affected more preterm infants with certain comorbidities, with a higher morbidity and mortality, compared to term infants. RSV fatality among preterm infants was associated with congenital heart disease.

Introduction. The early detection of clinical deterioration in hospitalized patients helps to improve the quality of care. The pediatric early warning score (PEWS) system predicts such deterioration in the first 24 hours of administration. Prior studies support the use of these tools.Objective. To assess the usefulness of the Brighton PEWS (B-PEWS) for the prediction of clinical deterioration among hospitalized children at a children's hospital in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.Population and methods. Cross-sectional study. The medical records of all patients aged 1 month to 18 years admitted to any hospitalization ward between March 1st and August 31st, 2018 were included. Predictive outcome measure: B-PEWS score (≤ 3 and ≥ 4 points). Outcome variable: clinical deterioration in the first 24 hours. Categorical outcome measures were analyzed with the χ² test and screening values were estimated. The relative risk was used as a measure of association. A ROC curve analysis and an optimal cut-point analysis according to the Youden index were done considering the score in a continuous manner.Results. A total of 518 medical records were reviewed. Forty patients had clinical deterioration; the B-PEWS score was ≥ 4 in 37 patients and ≤ 3 in 3 (relative risk: 56.36; 95 % confidence interval: 17.76-178.89; p < 0.01). Sensitivity: 92.5 %; specificity: 88.3 %; positive predictive value: 39.8 %; negative predictive value: 99.3 %; positive likelihood ratio: 7.91; negative likelihood ratio: 0.08. AUC:0.94 (95 % confidence interval: 0.89-0.98).Conclusion. The B-PEWS demonstrated to be useful to predict clinical deterioration in hospitalized children.

ABSTRACT

Introducción. La anemia por deficiencia de hierro en hemodiálisis es frecuente. Para su detección se utiliza la ferritina sérica y la saturación de transferrina (ST). El equivalente de hemoglobina reticulocitaria (RET-He) es un análisis que no se modifica en estados inflamatorios y refleja directamente el hierro disponible en médula ósea.Objetivo. Explorar la capacidad diagnóstica de deficiencia absoluta de hierro del RET-He y evaluar su correlación con marcadores tradicionales de ferropenia.Población y métodos. Estudio retrospectivo que comparó RET-He con ferritina y ST en niños en hemodiálisis atendidos en el Hospital Garrahan entre julio de 2016 y julio de 2019. Resultados. En 164 observaciones realizadas en 40 niños, se encontró correlación positiva débil entre hemoglobina y RET-He (r 0,35, p < 0,001), positiva significativa entre ST y RET-He (r 0,52, p < 0,001), negativa baja entre hemoglobina y ferritina (r -0,19, p 0,02) y ausencia de correlación entre hemoglobina y ST (r 0,05, p 0,5). El 50 % presentaba anemia; la ferropénica fue por marcadores tradicionales en el 13 % y por RET-He en el 44 %. El RET-He mostró sensibilidad del 90,9 % (IC 95: 57,1-99,5 %), especificidad del 74,5 % (IC 95: 66,7-81 %), valor predictivo negativo del 99,1 % (IC 95: 94,5-99,9 %) y positivo del 20,4 % (IC 95: 10,7-34,7 %) para detectar anemia ferropénica con valor de corte de 29 picogramos.Conclusiones. Pese a su capacidad limitada, el RET-He como biomarcador de deficiencia de hierro aumenta la detección de anemia ferropénica en niños en hemodiálisis


Introduction. Iron-deficiency anemia is common in hemodialysis patients. Serum ferritin and transferrin saturation (TS) are used for its detection. The reticulocyte hemoglobin equivalent (RET-He) is a marker that is not altered by inflammatory conditions and directly reflects iron availability in the bone marrow.Objective. To explore the diagnostic capability of RET-He to detect absolute iron deficiency and assess its correlation with traditional markers of iron deficiency.Population and methods. Retrospective study comparing RET-He with ferritin and TS in children on hemodialysis seen at Hospital Garrahan between July 2016 and July 2019.Results. In 164 observations carried out in 40 children, a weak positive correlation was found between hemoglobin and RET-He (r = 0.35, p < 0.001), a significant positive correlation between TS and RET-He (r = 0.52, p < 0.001), a low negative correlation between hemoglobin and ferritin (r = -0.19, p = 0.02), and a lack of correlation between hemoglobin and TS (r = 0.05, p = 0.5). Anemia was observed in 50 %; iron-deficiency anemia was detected by traditional markers in 13 % and by RET-He in 44 %. RET-He showed a sensitivity of 90.9 % (95 % CI: 57.1-99.5 %), a specificity of 74.5 % (95 % CI: 66.7-81 %), a negative predictive value of 99.1 % (95 % CI: 94.5-99.9 %), and a positive predictive value of 20.4 % (95 % CI: 10.7-34.7 %) to detect iron-deficiency anemia with a cut-off value of 29 pg.Conclusions. Despite its limited capability, the use of RET-He as a biomarker of iron deficiency increases the detection of iron-deficiency anemia in children on hemodialysis.

ABSTRACT

El déficit de vitamina B12 es una de las complicaciones más importantes que puede producir el vegetarianismo. Los lactantes hijos de madres vegetarianas tienen riesgo aumentado de deficiencia y de presentar compromiso neurológico irreversible si esta no se identifica y corrige adecuadamente.Se describe el caso de un lactante de un mes y veinte días que consultó por episodios paroxísticos de mecanismo epileptógeno, en el cual los estudios complementarios permitieron identificar un déficit de vitamina B12 como causa de estos. Tras la confirmación diagnóstica, se instauró el tratamiento con vitamina B12 intramuscular, con remisión completa de los síntomas, buena evolución posterior y desarrollo psicomotor sin alteraciones.Teniendo en cuenta las tendencias alimentarias actuales, es necesario incorporar, en la práctica clínica habitual, la anamnesis nutricional materna detallada para detectar precozmente el riesgo de déficit de esta vitamina y prevenirlo


Vitamin B12 deficiency is one of the main complications of vegetarianism. Infants of vegetarian mothers have greater risk of deficiency and irreversible neurological compromise if deficiency is not identified and treated. We describe the case of a 1 month 20 days-old infant who consulted due to paroxysmal episodes of epileptogenic mechanism; laboratory tests identified a deficiency in vitamin B12 as the cause. After confirmation of diagnosis, treatment with intramuscular vitamin B12 was established with full remission of symptoms, good evolution and psychomotor development without alterations.Considering current alimentary trends, it is necessary to include a detailed maternal nutritional anamnesis in regular clinical practice, in order to detect the risk of this vitamin deficiency at an early stage and to prevent it.

ABSTRACT

El fibrosarcoma infantil es un tumor raro, perteneciente al grupo de sarcomas no rabdomiosarcoma; se presenta, preferentemente, en infantes, con localización más frecuente en extremidades.Se reporta un varón de 5 meses, con historia de sangrado digestivo desde los 3 meses, interpretados, al principio, como alergia a la proteína de leche de vaca, con evolución tórpida y anemia. Por laparoscopía exploradora, se evidenció un tumor en el intestino medio; se realizó resección y anastomosis término-terminal. Luego, se ampliaron los márgenes de resección por ser < 0,1 cm.Microscópicamente, se observó una proliferación neoplásica fusocelular con positividad difusa para vimentina, y reacción en cadena de la polimerasa con transcriptasa reversa positiva para ETV6-NTRK3. Se diagnosticó fibrosarcoma infantil intestinal. Presentó buena evolución a 24 meses del diagnóstico. Si bien es infrecuente en pediatría, se debe considerar como diagnóstico diferencial en lactantes con sangrado digestivo sin causa clara.


Infantile fibrosarcoma is a rare tumor, belonging to the non-rhabdomyosarcoma, soft tissue sarcoma. It is mostly presented in infants, most commonly involving the extremities.We report a 5-month-old boy, presenting with digestive bleeding since the age of 3 months, initially diagnosed as cow's milk allergy, with a torpid evolution and anemia. He underwent laparoscopic exploration, with evidence of a mass in the small bowel. Resection and end-to-end anastomosis were performed. Because of inadequate microscopic margins (< 1 cm), a new surgery was performed to achieve tumor free margins. Histological examination consisted of spindle cells that mainly expressed vimentin, and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction was positive for the ETV6-NTRK3 transcript, confirming the diagnosis of infantile fibrosarcoma. The patient did well after 24 months of follow-up.Although infantile intestinal fibrosarcoma is extremely uncommon in children, it should be considered as differential diagnosis for digestive bleeding in infants

ABSTRACT

La hipoacusia tiene una incidencia notable entre los recién nacidos. Una intervención temprana durante el período de maduración auditiva permite minimizar los efectos en el desarrollo intelectual del infante. Se propone el desarrollo de un Registrador de Emisiones Otoacústicas Transientes como parte de un sistema de cribado neonatal basado en microcontroladores de alto rendimiento. La prueba consiste en aplicar periódicamente un estímulo tipo chasquido para obtener la respuesta coclear. Se promedian las señales adquiridas y se aplica la Transformada Rápida de Fourier. El espectro obtenido es dividido en bandas de media octava para analizar la correlación y la relación señal-ruido. Si estos parámetros son mayores que los umbrales de referencia en la mayoría de las bandas, se considera al paciente apto para el desarrollo normal. El firmware fue implementado sobre el procesador STM32F405 y evaluado con el simulador Baby Isao; obteniéndose una sensibilidad del 87.5 por ciento y una especificidad del 93.75 por ciento(AU)


Hearing loss is highly incident among newborns. Early intervention during the period of auditory maturation allows adequate levels of intellectual development to be achieved. The development of a Transient Otoacoustic Emissions Recorder is proposed as part of a neonatal screening system based on high-performance microcontrollers. The test consists of periodically applying a click stimulus to obtain the cochlear response. The acquired signals are averaged and the Fast Fourier Transform is applied. The spectrum obtained is divided into half-octave bands to assess the correlation as well as the signal-noise ratio. If these parameters are greater than the reference thresholds in most of the bands, the patient is considered suitable for normal cognitive development. The firmware was implemented on the STM32F405 processor and evaluated with the Baby Isao simulator; obtaining a sensitivity of 87.5 percent and a specificity of 93.75 percent(AU)

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: analisar o perfil clínico epidemiológico de crianças admitidas na pediatria de um hospital público no interior do estado do Rio de Janeiro. Método: estudo descritivo, transversal, de abordagem quantitativa, desenvolvido com responsáveis de crianças admitidas na pediatria, através da aplicação de questionário. Resultados: 92 (100%) responsáveis participaram do estudo, dos quais, 57 (62,0%) não trabalham; 27 (29,4%) possuem quatro dependentes; 35 (38,0%) perfazem renda familiar de um salário mínimo. A maior proporção das crianças foi de lactentes, 47 (51,1%); com diagnóstico de afecção respiratória, 35 (38,0%). Conclusão: foi evidenciada associação entre determinantes sociais, sobretudo o socioeconômico, com o desenvolvimento de afecções respiratórias, especialmente em lactentes. Sugere-se que políticas direcionadas sejam intensificadas, não apenas para ação curativa, mas preventiva, através de educação em saúde direcionadas às famílias e aos responsáveis, visando reconhecer os fatores de risco para aquisição dessas doenças, bem como o reconhecimento dos sinais de gravidade.


Objective: to analyze clinical and epidemiologically profile of children admitted to pediatrics at a public hospital in Rio de Janeiro State. Method: this quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted by applying a questionnaire to parents and guardians of children admitted to pediatrics. Results: 92 (100%) parents and guardians participated, 57 (62.0%) of whom were out of work; 27 (29.4%) had four dependents; 35 (38.0%) received family income of one minimum wage. The children were mostly infants (47; 51.1%) and diagnosed with a respiratory condition (35; 38.0%). Conclusion: an association was found between social determinants, especially socioeconomic factors, and the development of respiratory disorders, particularly in infants. It is recommended that specific policies, for not only curative care, but also prevention, be intensified by health education to enable families, parents and guardians to recognize the risk factors for such diseases, as well as the signs of severity.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El programa de estimulación temprana en la primera infancia, está diseñado para promover y mejorar el neurodesarrollo. El cuerpo calloso es una masa arqueada de sustancia blanca, compuesta por un haz de fibras transversales, situada al fondo del surco longitudinal que conecta a ambos hemisferios cerebrales. Se asocia con prematuridad y edad materna avanzada. Objetivo: Demostrar la validez de un programa de intervención temprana en la evolución de un paciente con agenesia de cuerpo calloso en las etapas del neurodesarrollo. Presentación del caso: Lactante venezolano, masculino de 4 meses de edad, blanco, producto de un segundo embarazo. Padres jóvenes, no consanguíneos. A las 19 semanas le realizan ecografía fetal: imagen quística cerebral interhemisférica, sugestivo de agenesia del cuerpo calloso. Parto por cesárea de urgencia: 34 semanas por: CIUR, oligoamnios severo, sufrimiento fetal agudo y preeclampsia, con Apgar 7-9, peso: 1800 g. Es traído al Centro Internacional de Salud La Pradera, con el diagnóstico de agenesia de cuerpo calloso más retardo del desarrollo psicomotor. Se inicia programa de intervención temprana cinco veces por semana con evaluaciones cuatrimestrales. Se involucra a los familiares. A los 18 meses de edad alcanza los hitos longitudinales propios de la edad Conclusiones: La intervención temprana favorece los mecanismos de neuroplasticidad cerebral y proporciona una evolución satisfactoria en las etapas del neurodesarrollo independiente de la agenesia de cuerpo calloso. La participación intensiva de la madre del niño es crucial para el éxito de la intervención(AU)


Introduction: The program of early stimulation in the early childhood is designed to foster and improve neurodevelopment. The callused body is a curved mass of a white substance composed by a beam of transverse fibers located in the back of the longitudinal track that connects both brain hemispheres. It is associated to prematurity and advanced maternal age. Objective: To prove the validity of an early intervention program in the evolution of a patient with agenesis of corpus callosum in the stages of neurodevelopment. Case presentation: Venezuelan newborn, 4 months old, masculine, white skin, product of a second pregnancy. Young parents, no blood relation. At 19 weeks of pregnancy, it is conducted a fetal echography: interhemispheric cystic image, suggestive to agenesis of the corpus callosum. Emergency cesarean section at 34 weeks of pregnancy due to: IUGR, severe oligoamnios; acute fetal distress and preeclampsia, with 7-9 Agar, weight: 1800 g. The newborn was admitted in La Pradera International Health Center with a diagnosis of agenesis of the corpus callosum, and delay in the psychomotor development. It was started a program of early intervention five times in the week with four-monthly assessments. Relatives were involved in the program. At 18 months old, the patient achieved the longitudinal milestones of that age. Conclusions: Early interventions favour brain neuroplasticity mechanisms, and provide a satisfactorily evolution in the stages of neurodevelopment, obviating the agenesis of the corpus callosum. Intensive participation of the child's mother is essential for the success of the intervention(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El síndrome de dificultad respiratoria aguda es una enfermedad que cursa con hipoxemia severa, poco frecuente en las unidades de cuidados intensivos pediátricos, pero con elevada mortalidad. Objetivo: Determinar la relación entre variables demográficas y clínicas con la duración de la ventilación mecánica y la supervivencia en niños con síndrome de dificultad respiratoria aguda. Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo de los pacientes ingresados en 15 unidades de cuidados intensivos pediátricos, con diagnóstico de síndrome de dificultad respiratoria aguda. Se evaluaron variables demográficas, las formas clínicas del síndrome de dificultad respiratoria aguda, duración de la ventilación mecánica y la supervivencia. Las variables cualitativas se expresaron en valores absolutos y porcentajes, las variables cuantitativas se analizaron con la prueba ji-cuadrada de Pearson y comparación de medias. Resultados: Se registraron 282 pacientes, de ellos 63,7 por ciento menores de seis años, el 54,4 por ciento del sexo masculino y el 51,1 por ciento de piel blanca. Las formas clínicas pulmonares prevalecieron (58,1 por ciento) y se correlacionaron (p= 0,022) con la supervivencia, la mediana de la duración de la ventilación mecánica fue de 10 días. Existió relación (p= 0,000) entre la duración de la ventilación y la mortalidad. Se registró una mortalidad global de 40,78 por ciento, (n= 115). Conclusiones: El síndrome de dificultad respiratoria aguda tiene mayor incidencia en los menores de seis años y en las formas clínicas pulmonares que se relacionan con una mayor supervivencia, la cual se eleva en la medida que aumentan los días de ventilación mecánica(AU)


ABSTRACT Introduction: The acute respiratory distress syndrome is a disease that evolves with severe hypoxemia, and it is not frequent in pediatric intensive care units, but it has high mortality rates. Objective: To determine the relation between demographic and clinical variables with the mechanical ventilation and survival in children with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Methods: Retrospective study in patients admitted in 15 pediatric intensive care units with diagnosis of acute respiratory distress syndrome. There was an assessment of the demographic variables, the clinical forms of this syndrome, the duration of mechanical ventilation and the survival rates. Qualitative variables were presented in absolute values and percentages, and were analyzed with the Pearson´s ji-square test and means comparison. Results: 282 patients were recorded, 63.7 percent of them were under 6 years old, 54.4 percent were males and 51.1 percent were white. Pulmonary clinical forms prevailed (58,1 percent) and were correlated (p= 0,022) with the survival rates, and the mean of mechanical ventilation´s duration was of 10 days. There was relation (p= 0,000) between the duration of ventilation and mortality. It was recorded a total mortality of 40.78 percent (n= 115). Conclusions: Acute respiratory distress syndrome has higher incidence in children under 6 years and in the pulmonary clinical forms that are related with a higher survival, which increases in the same way that mechanical ventilation´s amount of days do(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Las malformaciones congénitas del riñón y del tracto urinario representan entre 20 y 30 por ciento de todas las malformaciones reconocidas en humanos. Objetivo: Identificar los antecedentes patológicos familiares y las enfermedades durante el embarazo asociados a la aparición de defectos congénitos renales. Métodos: Estudio descriptivo prospectivo transversal realizado en 672 niños nacidos entre julio de 2014 y junio de 2015 en Santa Clara, con ultrasonido prenatal normal. A todos los niños durante la consulta médica se les hizo examen físico detallado y previo consentimiento informado del familiar acompañante, se aplicó a estos una encuesta y se registraron variables epidemiológicas, antecedentes familiares de enfermedades renales, morbilidad de la madre durante el embarazo y se realizó un ultrasonido renal para identificar las alteraciones sonográficas sugerentes de algún tipo de anomalías del desarrollo renal. Resultados: En 40 (5,95 por ciento) pacientes se detectó alteración sonográfica. El 27,50 por ciento eran hijos de madres que presentaron alguna enfermedad durante el embarazo. La glucemia elevada afectó 10 por ciento de las madres de los niños con anomalías del desarrollo renal, seguida del bajo peso materno (7,5 por ciento). El hecho de presentar antecedente patológico familiar de enfermedad renal aportó un riesgo de 1,88 y en las de tipo obstructivo el riesgo fue de 5,08. Conclusiones: Las alteraciones sonográficas sugestivas de malformación congénita renal son más frecuentes en los lactantes cuyas madres presentaron concentraciones elevadas de glucosa y bajo peso durante el embarazo. Los niños con antecedentes familiares de malformación renal tienen mayor riesgo de presentar una anomalía del desarrollo renal(AU)


Introduction: Kidney and urinary tract´s malformations represent among 20 and 30 percent of all malformations known in humans. Objective: To identify during pregnancy family pathological history and diseases associated to the onset of renal congenital malformations. Methods: Prospective, descriptive, cross-sectional study carried out to 672 children with normal prenatal ultrasound whom were born from July, 2014 to June 2015 in Santa Clara province. All children during the medical consultation had a detailed physical examination and previous informed concent; it was applied also a survey and the epidemiologic variables, family history of renal diseases, morbility of the mother during pregnancy were recorded, and it was made a renal ultrasound to identify sonographic alterations suggesting any kind of anomaly in the renal development. Results: In 40 patients (5,95 percent), it was detected any sonographic alteration. 27,50 percent were children of mothers that presented any disease during pregnancy. High glycemia affected the 10 percent of mothers of children with anomalies in the renal development, followed by low maternal weight (7,5 percent). The fact of presenting a family pathological history of renal disease implied a risk of 1,88 percent and the risk was of 5,08 percent in the obstructive kind of diseases. Conlusions: Sonographic alterations suggesting renal congenital malformations are more frequent in newborns whose mothers had high concentrations of glycemia and low weight during pregnancy. Children with family history of renal malformations have higher risk of presenting an anomaly of the renal development(AU)

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: to report the use of virtual reality and its effects on clinical parameters, pain and its consequences in the treatment of two burned children in a Burn Treatment Center in southern Brazil. Method: case report on the use of virtual reality in two burned children treated at a reference burn treatment center in southern Brazil. Data were collected from January to February 2017, using the variables: pain, distraction, clinical parameters (heart rate and oxygen saturation) and analgesic medications. The measurements were carried out in five occasions and the intervention was applied for three days. The reports and reactions of children, guardians and the nursing team were also registered. Results: the use of virtual reality during dressings reduced the pain between two to four points on the scale used; oxygen saturation remained between 96 and 98%; heart rate decreased after the intervention. The children reported having fun, less time thinking about pain and were more collaborative during the procedure. Conclusion: this technology is innovative in the treatment of burned children and proved to be effective for the analyzed variables. New clinical studies with a larger sample are needed in the Brazilian context to contribute to these findings.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: The increase in the spectral information offered by the sound processing strategy HiRes 120 has led to great expectations for the pediatric population. Due to a shorter duration of auditory deprivation and higher neural plasticity, children could benefit more substantially from the spectral information of this sound processing strategy. Objective: To compare auditory and language skills in Brazilian children with cochlear implants using the HiRes and HiRes 120 sound processing strategies. Methods: Thirty children, aged 1-3 years, with congenital hearing loss, were divided into two groups, according to the signal processing strategy adjusted at the time of the cochlear implant activation. The assessed children were matched according to chronological age and the time of the cochlear implant use. The auditory and language skills were evaluated longitudinally through the Infant-Toddler Meaningful Auditory Integration Scale and Production Infant Scale Evaluation, carried out before surgery, and 3, 6 and 12 months after device implantation. The Mann-Whitney test was applied for the comparison between the two groups with a 5% significance level. Results: The findings indicated development of hearing and language skills in the first year of cochlear implant use; however, there was no statistically significant difference in the evolution of such skills due to the adjusted processing strategy in the activation of the cochlear implant electrodes. Conclusion: The development of auditory and language skills in the assessed children was similar during the entire study period, regardless of which signal processing strategy was used.


Resumo Introdução: O aumento das informações espectrais proporcionado pela estratégia de processamento de sinal HiRes 120 gera expectativas em relação à população pediátrica, uma vez que, devido ao curto período de privação sensorial e da maior plasticidade neural, as crianças poderiam se beneficiar de forma mais substancial das informações espectrais dessa estratégia de processamento de sinal. Objetivo: Comparar as habilidades auditivas e de linguagem em crianças usuárias de implante coclear, com a estratégia de processamento de sinal HiRes e HiRes 120. Método: Trinta crianças de um a três anos e com perda auditiva congênita foram divididas em dois grupos, de acordo com a estratégia de processamento de sinal ajustada no momento da ativação do implante coclear. As crianças avaliadas foram pareadas de acordo com a idade cronológica e o tempo de uso do implante coclear. As habilidades auditivas e de linguagem foram avaliadas, longitudinalmente, por meio do Infant-Toddler Meaningful Auditory Integration Scale e Production Infant Scale Evaluation, antes do implante coclear e com 3, 6 e 12 meses de uso do dispositivo. O teste estatístico de Mann-Whitney foi aplicado para comparar os resultados dos grupos, com nível de significância de 5%. Resultados: Os achados indicaram desenvolvimento das habilidades auditivas e de linguagem no primeiro ano de uso do implante coclear, porém sem diferença estatisticamente significante na evolução de tais habilidades, em função da estratégia de processamento ajustada na ativação dos eletrodos do implante coclear. Conclusão: O desenvolvimento das habilidades auditivas e de linguagem das crianças avaliadas foi semelhante durante o período do presente estudo, independentemente da estratégia de processamento de sinal usada.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) are featured by a delay in the acquisition of motor functions, cognitive abilities and speech, or combined deficits in these areas with the onset before the age of 5 years. Genetic causes account for approximately a half of all NDD cases. Objective: to describe alterations of the genome implied in neurodevelopmental disorders and some aspects of their genetic counseling. Methods: Bibliographic search in Medline, Pubmed, Scielo, LILACS and Cochrane, emphasizing in the last five years, the relationship between the various genetic factors that may be involved in neurodevelopmental disorders. Results: Multiple genetic factors are involved in neurodevelopmental disorders, from gross ones such as chromosomal aneuploidies to more subtle ones such as variations in the number of copies in the genome. Special emphasis is placed on microdeletion-micro duplication syndromes as a relatively frequent cause of NDDs and their probable mechanisms of formation are explained. Final Considerations: Genetic aberrations are found in at least 30-50 percent of children with NDD. Conventional karyotyping allows the detection of chromosomal aberrations encompassing more than 5-7 Mb, which represent 5-10 percent of causative genome rearrangements in NDD. Molecular karyotyping (e.g. SNP array/array CGH) can significantly improve the yield in patients with NDD and congenital malformations(AU)


Introducción: Los trastornos del neurodesarrollo están caracterizados por retardo en la adquisición de las funciones motoras, habilidades cognitivas para el habla o el déficit combinado en estas áreas; se presenta en niños menores de 5 años de edad. Las causas genéticas están implicadas en más de la mitad de los pacientes con estos trastornos Objetivo: Examinar las alteraciones del genoma implicados en los trastornos del neurodesarrollo y algunos aspectos de su asesoramiento genético. Métodos: Búsqueda bibliográfica en Medline, Pubmed, Scielo, LILACS y Cochrane con énfasis en los últimos cinco años, acerca de la relación entre los variados factores genéticos que pueden estar involucrados en los trastornos del neurodesarrollo. Resultados: Los factores genéticos involucrados pueden ser groseros como las aneuploidías cromosómicas hasta los más sutiles como las variaciones en el número de copias en el genoma. Se describen los síndromes de microdeleción-micro duplicación como una causa relativamente frecuente de los trastornos del neurodesarrollo y se explican sus probables mecanismos de formación. Se relacionan las aneuploidías cromosómicas y las variaciones en el número de copia como causas de estos trastornos. Consideraciones finales . Las aberraciones genéticas se encuentran en 30-50 por ciento de los niños con trastornos del neurodesarrollo. El cariotipo convencional permite la detección de aberraciones cromosómicas que abarcan más de 5-7 Mb, lo que representa 5-10 por ciento de los reordenamientos genómicos causales en estos trastornos. El cariotipo molecular (por ejemplo, una matriz de SNP/ CGH de matriz) puede mejorar significativamente la certeza del diagnóstico en pacientes con trastornos del neurodesarrollo y malformaciones congénitas(AU)

ABSTRACT

O surto da doença respiratória causada pelo novo coronavírus (SARS-CoV-2) aconteceu na cidade de Wuhan, capital da província de Hubei, na China, em dezembro de 2019, a qual disseminou-se de forma acelerada e, logo, atingiu mais de uma centena de países dos cinco continentes. Em 12 de março de 2020, a situação foi caracterizada como pandemia pela Organização Mundial de Saúde (OMS, 2020). Em razão da disseminação o do Coronavírus pelo mundo, o Ministério da Saúde declarou Emergência de Saúde Pública de Importância Nacional (ESPIN) em decorrência da infecção pelo novo coronavírus (COVID-19) e estabeleceu o Centro de Operações de Emergência em Saúde Pública (COE-COVID-19) como mecanismo de gestão coordenada da resposta à ESPIN no país (BRASIL, 2020a). Seguindo a linha mundial, o Ministério da Saúde elaborou e publicou "Plano de Contingência Nacional para Infecção Humana pelo Novo Coronavírus COVID-19" para organizar a detecção, monitoramento e resposta dos serviços de saúde à doença (BRASIL, 2020b). O Estado de Goiás instituiu o Centro de Operações Estratégicas de Saúde Pública (COE) em 18 de fevereiro de 2020 (GOIÁS, 2020a). E, seguindo as orientações nacionais, propõe o presente PLANO ESTADUAL DE CONTINGÊNCIA PARA O ENFRENTAMENTO DA DOENÇA PELO CORONAVÍRUS (COVID-19), a fim de organizar e fortalecer as políticas públicas de saúde, visto que, para que atinjam eficácia e eficiência, é necessário atuação conjunta e ordenada dos entes federados, bem como dos setores públicos e privados.


The outbreak of respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) occurred in Wuhan city, capital of Hubei province, China, in December 2019, which spread rapidly and thus reached more than a hundred countries on five continents. On March 12, 2020, the situation was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO, 2020). Due to the spread of Coronavirus around the world, the Ministry of Health declared a Public Health Emergency of National Importance (ESPIN) due to infection by the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and established the Center for Emergency Operations in Public Health (COE-COVID-19) as a mechanism for coordinated management of the response to ESPIN in the country (BRASIL, 2020a). Following the global line, the Ministry of Health elaborated and published "National Contingency Plan for Human Infection by the New Coronavirus COVID-19" to organize the detection, monitoring and response of health services to the disease (BRASIL, 2020b). The State of Goiás established the Center for Strategic Operations of Public Health (COE) on February 18, 2020 (GOIÁS, 2020a). And, following the national guidelines, it proposes this State CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR COPING WITH CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19), in order to organize and strengthen public health policies, since, in order to achieve effectiveness and efficiency, joint and orderly action of federal entities, as well as public and private sectors, is necessary.
