Fábio Rodrigues Kerbauy, Leonardo Raul Morelli, Cláudia Toledo de Andrade, Luis Fernando Lisboa, Miguel Cendoroglo Neto, Nelson Hamerschlak

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082012000100017

Objective:To evaluate whether the Pretransplantion Assesment of Mortality risk score is associated to transplant costs and can be used not only to predict mortality but also as a cost management tool.METHODS:We evaluated consecutively patients submitted to allogeneic (n = 27) and autologous (n = 89) hematopoietic stem cell-transplantation from 2004 to 2006 at Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein (SP), Brazil. Participants mean age at hematopoietic stem cell-transplantation was 42 (range 1 to 72) years; there were 69 males and 47 females; […]

ABSTRACT Objective: Reuse of hemodialysis filters is a standard practice and the sterilizing chemical most often employed is peracetic acid. Before starting the dialysis session, filters and lines are checked for residual levels of peracetic acid by means of a non-quantitative colorimetric test that is visually interpreted. The objective of this study was to investigate a new quantitative spectrophotometric test for detection of peracetic acid residues. Methods: Peracetic acid solutions were prepared in concentrations ranging from 0.01 to 10 ppm. […]

Impact of screening and monitoring of capillary blood glucose in the detection of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia in non-critical inpatients

Rogerio Silicani Ribeiro, Ricardo Botticini Peres, Magda Tiemi Yamamoto, Ana Paula Novaes, Claudia Regina Laselva, Adriana Caschera Leme Faulhaber, [...]

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082011AO1840

ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate the impact of screening hyper and hypoglycemia measured by capillary glycemia and standard monitorization of hyperglycemic patients hospitalized in regular care units of Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein. Methods: The capillary glycemia was measured by the Precision PCx (Abbott) glucosimeter, using the PrecisionWeb (Abbott) software. The detection of hyper and hypoglycemia during the months of May/June were compared to those of March/April in 2009 and to the frequency of the diagnosis of diabetes in 2007. Results: There […]

INTRODUCTION On January 12, 2010 an earthquake of 7.0 on the Richter scale struck Haiti, the poorest country in America. The quake’s epicenter was in Leogane with extension to almost all the country also hitting Port-au-Prince, the country’s capital. This disaster caused a huge destruction and devastated more than 250,000 of houses and commercial buildings and left more than a million of homeless people. In the aftermath, this catastrophe caused 230,000 deaths and more than 30,000 wounded people (). () […]
