Intramuscular injection safety without aspiration in the ventro-gluteal region during vaccination: randomized clinical trial.

Rev Bras Enferm 2021 20;75(1):e20201119. Epub 2021 Aug 20.

Universidade Federal de Alagoas. Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil.

Objectives: to compare adverse events after administrating hepatitis A vaccine intramuscularly in the ventro-gluteal region between techniques with and without aspiration.

Methods: randomized double-blind clinical trial, using hepatitis A vaccine (inactivated) in the ventro-gluteal region, with a sample of 74 participants in the intervention group, vaccinated with the slow injection technique without aspiration, and 74 participants in the control group undergoing slow injection with aspiration. Daily assessment of participants was carried out in the 72 hours after vaccination, in order to ascertain local, systemic adverse events, local and contralateral temperatures.

Results: the occurrence of local and systemic adverse events was homogeneous between the groups in the three days after vaccination (p>0.05). There was no influence of sex, race, pre-existing disease and use of medication.

Conclusions: the intramuscular vaccination technique without aspiration in the ventro-gluteal region is safe for adverse events following immunization compared to the conventional technique with aspiration.

Correlation of facial anthropometry data of late preterm newborns and oral feeding readiness.

Rev Bras Enferm 2021 23;74(5):e20201120. Epub 2021 Jul 23.

Universidade Federal de Alagoas. Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil.

Objective: To correlate nine facial anthropometric measurements with the readiness for oral feeding of late preterm newborns using an orogastric tube.

Methods: Observational study, carried out in two institutions in Maceió, Alagoas. Fifty-two newborns participated. A single measuring of nine facial measurements and daily measuring of the interface area for fixing the tube was performed. For readiness assessment, the Premature Oral Feeding Readiness Assessment Scale was used.

Results: An average readiness of 28.81 (± 3.18) was observed in the first evaluation and 30.65 (± 3.23) in the second. Most facial measurements are correlated with weight. There was a positive and slight correlation between glabella-subnasale distance and readiness. No correlation was observed between the area of the tube fixation interface and facial measurements.

Conclusion: It is concluded that the glabella-subnasale measurement is positively correlated with the readiness for oral feeding in late preterm newborns who used an orogastric tube for feeding.

Biometric measurements of the nasal area of newborns for the development of a nasal protector model: cross-sectional study.

Rev Esc Enferm USP 2021 23;55:e03706. Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Universidade Federal de Alagoas, Escola de Enfermagem, Maceió, AL, Brazil.

Objective: To correlate the biometric measurements of the nasal area of premature and term newborns to provide parameters for a nasal protector model.

Method: A crosssectional descriptive study, carried out in the neonatal joint accommodation, intermediate and intensive care units of a hospital in Maceio, Alagoas, with a total of 300 newborns, divided into two groups: 150 term and 150 premature. Neonatal history data and 1200 digital photographs were used for biometric measurements.

Results: The groups were homogeneous regarding gender, weight and length of the newborn. The measurements of nasal width, distance from the wing of the nose to the right and left columella midline, right and left nasal introitus area, length of the right and left nasal dorsum were different when compared in groups according to gestational age and weight ranges - very low weight, low weight and appropriate weight for gestational age (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The data obtained provide parameters for creating a nasal protector for newborns using prongs, considering anatomical aspects.

Pulsatility of the umbilical cord in full-term natural childbirths.

Rev Gaucha Enferm 2021 21;42:e20200241. Epub 2021 May 21.

Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL), Escola de Enfermagem. Maceió, Alagoas, Brasil.

Objective: Measure umbilical cord pulsatility time and evaluate correlation/association with maternal and neonatal characteristics.

Method: Cross-sectional study, with 76 binomials, carried out in 2017, in a maternity hospital in Alagoas. Analysis with Pearson or Spearman correlation test and Mann-Whitney or Kruskal-Wallis test.

Results: Sixty-two parturients and their newborns participated of the research. The women had a gestational age ≥ 37 weeks, natural cephalic birth, without distortions. The newborns had average weight of 3326.29g, mostly male. The umbilical cord pulsatility time was 285.48s. There is a correlation between umbilical cord pulsatility time and placental delivery time (p<0.001). Other correlations/associations were not significant.

Conclusion: It suggested using a correlation between pulsatility time and placental delivery time in clinical decision making for good practices in childbirth assistance.

The use of biofeedback intervention in the improvement of depression levels: a randomised trial.

Acta Neuropsychiatr 2021 Jun 11;33(3):126-133. Epub 2021 Jan 11.

School of Nutrition. Federal University of Alagoas, Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil.

Objective: To evaluate the use of biofeedback intervention in the levels of depression. The main hypothesis tested if the use of biofeedback improves depression levels compared to the control group.

Methods: A randomised clinical trial. The final sample was composed of 36 participants (18 in the experimental group, receiving 6 training, once a week, with biofeedback; and 18 in the control group, who received conventional treatment in the service).Outcome measures were assessed in two stages: pre-test and post-test. The research used the following instruments: demographic survey data, Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview 5.0.0 and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). The factors and variables were presented in terms of descriptive and inferential statistics. Fisher's exact test (p < 0.05) was used to verify the existence of an association between the counting variables. The multinomial logistic regression model was adopted, and the Logit link function was used, as the software RStudio version 3.6.2.

Results: The factors that remained in the final model were group, sex, partner, atypical antidepressant, benzodiazepines, mood stabiliser, antiepileptic and antihistamine, according to the levels of depression based on the BDI. The group that did not receive biofeedback intervention had 16 times more chances of increasing the depression levels compared to participants in the experimental group.

Conclusion: The use of biofeedback reduces depression, thus, representing a complementary alternative for the treatment of moderate and severe depression, and dysthymia.

Development of anatomical nasal protector for newborns using prongs.

Rev Esc Enferm USP 2020 12;54:e03618. Epub 2020 Oct 12.

Universidade Federal de Alagoas, Escola de Enfermagem, Maceió, AL, Brasil.

Objective: To develop an anatomical nasal protector for newborns using prongs.

Method: A descriptive study and technological production based on the Product Development Process, which involved informational design, conceptual design and detailed design phases, between March 2017 and February 2019.

Results: The design and materialization of nasal protectors were achieved in hydrocolloid plates. These were reprocessed by five sterilization methods: ultraviolet and gamma radiation, gaseous formaldehyde, hydrogen peroxide plasma and saturated steam under pressure. Microbiological tests indicated bacterial growth after processing by formaldehyde and ultraviolet radiation. Gamma radiation guaranteed the sterility and stability of the material.

Conclusion: Three classifications of nasal hydrocolloid protectors were achieved after the tests, with safe and promising characteristics to continue studies aiming at the clinical evaluation in newborns using prongs.
