We present the first record of Lygophis meridionalis for the state of Espírito Santo, in southeastern Brazil, and a distribution map based on indexed literature. This species of the family Dipsadidae is widely distributed in South America, although records from Brazil are only available for the states of São Paulo, Amazonas, Pará, Goiás, Tocantins, and Bahia. Our report is only the second record of L. meridionalis from the Atlantic Forest and represents a range extension of 998 km from the nearest record in this biome. © 2017 Check List and Authors.

This study analyzed the attitudes of nurses concerning the occurrence of errors in nursing procedures carried out in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) based on the bioethics framework. This descriptive study with qualitative approach was carried out with 14 nurses from a private hospital in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Results were analyzed according to Bardin's proposal of content analysis. The resulting themes were: acknowledging one's fallibility; acknowledging and reporting errors; hiding errors. The nurses' reports are based on considerations through the lens of bioethics: taking responsibility for an error implies acknowledging one's own vulnerabilities; acknowledging an error with responsibility implies ethical conditions in the relationships among those involved; and errors are in the context of a particular environment. This study enables re-thinking nursing practice based on bioethics, resorting to the analysis of errors focusing on the relationships between those involved.

Informed consent is a mandatory document in human subject research protocols. Its principles have been recently established in the history of Medicine, and the first official document to establish the need for an informed consent from the research subject was the Nuremberg Code (1947). All following documents confirmed that the informed consent is mandatory in human subject research. However, the informed consent, which represents patients' autonomy or self-determination regarding their relationship with their physicians, took a while to be included in medical care practice and medical deontology codes. The convenience of using the informed consent in medical practice is widely discussed today, especially in rheumatology. Our opinion is that the obligation of a signed informed consent provided by the patient for every medical procedure is neither reasonable nor practical. It should be used for more invasive or risky therapeutic procedures. We understand that the informed consent does not guarantee that the patient has been fully informed, which is an essential condition for the current rheumatological practice. Its adoption in routine medical care practice would make medical intervention bureaucratic, and, thus, quite different from the Hippocratic view, which considered the trustful physician-patient relationship fundamental for an adequate medical care practice.


Objective. To describe the pathology of Friedreich's Ataxia and correlate its clinical aspects to the study of affected nervous structures in this disease. Method. The search for materials was carried out during July-2011 to January-2013. The materials were published in Portuguese, English, French or Spanish and were sought in digital databases without restriction on publication date. Also were used books of author's personal collection. Results. In FA some nervous cells degenerate, especially kinesthetic sensory fibers. The central lesions occur in the cerebellum, where the lesions are in the cortex, the vermis and the dentate nucleus; in the brainstem, where there is greater involvement in spinocerebellars tracts, and lower in vestibular nucleus and vagus nerve nucleus; in the spinal cord, where degeneration occurs in the posterior funiculi and espinocerebelares and corticospinal tracts; in the PNS, where there is degeneration in large caliber myelinated fibers; and the sense organs. Conclusion. The knowledge of neuroanatomical and clinical aspects are essential for professionals in health, in view of the importance of this nosological entity and its complex and multifactorial clinical condition.


Resilience and bullying are two terms of recent use for old situations. Resilience refers to human possibility of recovering from adversity. Bullying is a form of physical or verbal violence sometimes by means of Internet resources. It is based on prejudices due to genre, social class, color, race and other factors and occurs in different spaces such as schools. Psychotherapy may contribute for strengthening resilience and interrupting the circle of violence of bullying, with individual or group care for "victims", "victimizers" and "observers", family guidance and to teachers, the production of materials and participation in transdisciplinary groups, in a work of promotion of humane values, deconstruction of preconceptions and development of self esteem.

The aim of the present study was to think the Oncology Course in the baccalaureate nursing curriculum pointing relevant issues about its introduction, considering professional training and qualification, labor market demand and a critical reflection about nurse's professional competences. Score is also the role of technology in helping training and education of new health professionals.

The Agulhas Negras Gravity Calibration Line was established in SE Brazil by the end of 1980s using LaCoste & Romberg relative gravimeters only, and has been used as part of the calibration process of relative gravimeters. In 2009, the accuracy of this Calibration Line was greatly improved as absolute gravity and vertical gravity gradients were measured on all the calibration stations by a team of the Gravimetry Laboratory of Observatório Nacional. After the acquisition of two quartz spring gravimeters Scintrex CG-5 Autograv in 2010, these meters were allowed to 'mature' for some time in the lab before being taken to the Calibration Line. These instruments have also been put to use in the maintenance and extension of the Brazilian Fundamental Gravity Network, specifically in measuring the vertical gradient of local gravity. Data gathered in the past two years with these two instruments are compared to known reference values of the Agulhas Negras Gravity Calibration Line and a few selected stations of the Brazilian Fundamental Gravity Network. This allows for an evaluation of the overall field performance of these meters and their reliability concerning highly precise gravimetery. © State Research Center of the Russian Federation Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC, 2016.

To define the nutritional profile of institutionalized elderly individuals. Comparative correlation and quantitative field study conducted in a Long-Stay Institution in Sao Paulo (SP), Brazil, between December 2010 and January 2012. To define nutritional diagnosis, data were collected from patient files, such as body mass index, circumferences, triceps skinfold, muscle area of the arm, thickness of the adductor pollicis, handgrip strength, and biochemical test results. The anthropometric variables were presented as mean, standard deviation, and percentages, and were grouped by gender and stratified by age. The level of statistical significance was p<0.05. One hundred and two elderly individuals were selected, and 84 were females. Excess weight was the most common anthropometric diagnosis in men (n=11; 61%), with the detection of protein depletion in those aged 70 years, and possible cases of sarcopenic obesity. All women were in good health conditions (n=84; 100%). However, in 27% (n=23) of them, protein depletion was evident. More anthropometric studies are necessary which would allow a definition of local reference standards, stratified by gender and age group. The difference between populations and factors, such as inclusion and exclusion criteria, and methodological characteristics, limit the use of international standards, interfering in the reliability of the nutritional diagnosis.


The use if newly deceased for teaching medical procedures occurs with an unknown frequency. In the surgical area the training of skills has a fundamental importance due to the need of invasive procedures inherent to the surgical practice. There are rare publications about this issue in Bioethics, but it is fundamental that this discussion and pondering be done in the surgery departments of the teaching hospitals. The performance of procedures in newly deceased must be faced as an exception and it must be mandatorily preceded by family authorization.
