    Factors associated to quality of life in active elderly Fatores associados à qualidade de vida em idosos ativos OBJECTIVE: To analyze whether quality of life in active, healthy elderly individuals is influenced by functional status and sociodemographic characteristics, as well as psychological parameters. METHODS: Study conducted in a sample of 120 active elderly subjects recruited from two open universities of the third age in the cities of São Paulo and São José dos Campos (Southeastern Brazil) between May 2005 and April 2006.

  2. FOCUSED ISSUE OF THIS MONTH


    the privacy of no citizen shall be infringed. There have been considerable advances in the fields of computers and communications technology in the late 20th century. However, processing large amounts of personal information has caused many problems. In Korea, incidents of personal information leakage have been occurring frequently. To solve these problems, the Personal Information Protection Act was enacted in 2011. The most significant feature of this Act is that it applies not only to public institutions, but also to corporate bodies, organizations, and individuals who manage personal information. However, the Act does not allow the management of personal information...

  4. THE OPTIMAL CLIMATE IN DEPARTMENT STORES BY

    J. W. Snellen
    The optimal effective temperature for department stores was obtained by collecting temperature and humidity data in six such stores during one full year and by asking several members of the sales staff to give their preference at different periods of the year. Four of the stores gave very good agreement regarding the desirable effective temperature. One store had a different optimum, probably due to local differences in preference, and one store failed to indicate an optimum. This failure could be interpreted in terms of the average optimum derived from the other depart-ment stores. Recommendations for optimal effective temperatures for department...

  5. Berlin · New York Gene Analysis and the Clinical Chemist1)

    H. Lang; W. Ebeling; B. Reckmann; E. Rieke
    Summary: Knowledge of gene analysis methods and concepts will be important to the clinical chemist in the near future. Currently most gene analyses must be performed by indirect techniques, using polymicleotide probes hybridizing close to or on the disease gene but not on the position of the mostly unknown gene mutation (restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis). The sensitivity and specificity of such assays are affected by biological and methodologic factors, and are being continually improved. Preventive medicine is a promising area for gene analysis which will possibly fit well into the domain of clinical chemistry. The application of nucleotide hybridization...

  8. Heberden Oration, 1963: the epidemiology of rheumatic diseases

    J. H. Kellgren
    Epidemiology is the study of disease in populations as opposed to patients. Its objectives are to deter-mine the causes of disease and by their definition to enable us to introduce preventive measures designed to eliminate disease from populations rather than to cure or relieve established cases. In the time of William Heberden Epidemiology had not emerged as a separate discipline and Preventive Medicine was practically non-existent. Nevertheless Heberden made some very penetrating observations in his "Commentaries on the History and Cure ofDiseases", and he recognized that disease could result from both heredity and environment. When either heredity or environment is...

  9. Printed In U.S.A. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR RE: "INVITED COMMENTARY: CIRCULAR EPIDEMIOLOGY"


    Lewis Kuller on "circular epidemiology, " which he defined as "the continua-tion of specific types of epidemiologic studies beyond the point of reasonable doubt of the true existence of an important association or the absence of such an association " (1, p. 897). This problem, according to Kuller, arises from the lack of a systematic approach to the acquisition of new knowledge for improving public health and preventive medicine. A recent issue of the Epidemiology Monitor (2) compared "circular epidemiology " with the "false-positive research cycle, " which I described in an earlier article arguing for the need for a...

    Background The rapidly increasing burden of chronic disease is diffi cult to reconcile with the large, compelling body of literature that demonstrates the substantial preventive and therapeutic benefi ts of comprehensive lifestyle intervention, including physical activity, smoking cessation and healthy diet. Physical inactivity is now the fourth leading independent risk factor for death caused by non-communicable chronic disease. Although there have been efforts directed towards research, education and legislation, preventive efforts have been meager relative to the magnitude of the problem. The disparity between our scientifi c knowledge about chronic disease and practical implementation of preventive approaches now is one...

  12. Community health programs

    W. Harding; Le Riche
    In view of the Walkerton calamity,the anthrax scare in the United States and the threat of chemical and biological warfare, I think we should look again at the education of physi-cians in the specialty of community (public) health. When I joined the Toronto School of Hygiene in 1956 the program cov-ered 10 subjects: chemistry in relation to hygiene and sanitation, epidemiology and biometrics, hospital administration, hygiene and preventive medicine, viral infections, experimental cytology, para-sitology, physiological hygiene, public health administration and public health nutrition. At the time, the Diploma in Public Health program in microbiology was the best in the country....

  17. The Reliability and Validity of the Rhodes Index of Nausea, Vomiting and Retching in Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting

    Departments Of Anesthesiology; Pain Medicine; Clinical Pharmacology; Preventive Medicine
    Background: The Rhodes index of nausea, vomiting and retching (RINVR) is a patient self-report instrument to assess the objective and subjective factors of nausea and vomiting. The aim of this study is to evaluate the reliability and validity of the RINVR in postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). Methods: The RINVR, VAS for nausea and incidence of emetic episodes were administered to 150 patients approximately 30 minutes apart at 6 hours and 24 hours after surgery. The validity was evaluated by Spearman's correlation and internal consistency of reliability was determined using Cronbach's alpha. To determine test-retest reliability, second administration of the...
