Abstract: Laboratory diagnosis has undergone several changes over time due to automation. In addition to automation, the adoption of a quality assurance program (PGQ), thus resulting in greater accuracy and accuracy in exams. The present study aimed to analyze in the literature the main laboratory errors related to the pre-analytical phase. The same is a literature review, where data collection was composed of scientific articles taken from electronic databases of scientific publications: SciELO, CAPES Journal Portal and MEDLINE, and data analyses were performed between July and August 2021. The main question of the present study was: "What are the main laboratory errors of the pre-analytical phase found in scientific publications?". The search in the database was performed using the combination of the following keywords: Laboratory tests; pre-analytical phase; Laboratory hematology. In view of the findings in the studies, it was possible to notice that pre-analytical variables continue to be an important source of attention for the clinical laboratory. And that it is responsible for most of the errors that occur in the dynamic process of the clinical analysis laboratory, which negatively impacts the laboratory result of the patients.

Abstract: Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are caused by viruses, bacteria or other microorganisms, transmitted most often by sexual intercourse, without the use of condoms, and can transmit from mother to child and through syringes, needles or other sharp materials shared. Six infections are on the rise among young Brazilians, which are: HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B and C, Syphilis, HPV, Gonorrhea and Genital Herpes. However, only HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B and C and Syphilis will be analyzed, because they are diseases of compulsory notification and present their data in SINAN. To analyze the survey of epidemiological data in case of STIs in adolescents. Study of secondary databases, quantitative, descriptive with a focus on the young population, adolescents between 10 and 19 years old. The results show that the most affected sex is male in all STIs analyzed. Hepatitis B decreased by approximately 17.57% in 2019 compared to 2014. Hepatitis C in 2018 had n=1574 deaths, more than three times the total number of deaths by the other Hepatitis. N=70,756 pregnant adolescents who had syphilis between 2015 and June 2020 were reported. There was also a decrease in AIDS cases from 2015-2019, where n=37,302 cases were reported in 2019. With the high number of cases during the year of STIs, special care is needed to create primary and secondary prevention strategies, which will contribute to a decrease in these numbers.

Abstract: The increase in cases of anxiety during the pandemic is related to the use of drugs of abuse. Social toxicology is a study of the harmful effects of drugs and drugs without a prescription that can harm both the individual and society. This study aims to understand the relationship between the increase in anxiety cases with drug use. It consists of exploratory-descriptive bibliographic research, with a qualitative approach, based on articles and book, from 2016 to 2021. Among the drugs most used in Brazil are alcohol, cocaine, marijuana and benzodiazepines. With the false concept of safety over a given substance, people associate therapeutic purposes with abusive consumption. Care should be, in self-medication and in the search for comfort in something that in the long run can do harm, and do not seek therapies that actually work, with suitable professionals, so that these drugs are used in a beneficial way to health.

Abstract: The indiscriminate use of benzodiazepines in the world has been growing for years, mainly for long periods and, in cases, without justification. The aim of this research is to conduct a literary review on the consequences of excessive consumption of benzodiazepines, especially its dependence, characterizing a complementary literary review, concluded through other studies, with qualitative method. The articles gathered were searched from the SciELO, PUBMED and Google Scholar databases. Addressing a need for awareness of the time of use of the drug, because the longer the period, the more difficult to interrupt the treatment, as well as increase the chances of developing abstinence. Concluding that the lack of adequacy of mental health issues by primary care professionals, the division of care, overwork, resource limitations and little investment in training contribute to the inadequate use of benzodiazepines.

Abstract: Through the pandemic scenario of Covid-19, declared by the World Health Organization (WHO), the support of the use of masks, alcohol and hand hygiene, became essential measures for combat. Under so many uncertainties and the fear of the population, it began to enter a serious emotional state, in which the irrational use of medications and self-medication increased, trying to protect itself from the lethality of such a disease, where the widespread practice of antibiotics should be discouraged, in which its use can lead to higher rates of bacterial resistance. The present study aimed to present discussions about the indiscriminate use of antibiotics and the evolution of resistance, based on the analysis in national scientific publications. The same was carried out between July and August 2021. The following databases were used: Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), Latin American and Caribbean Literature on Health Sciences (LILACS) and US National Library of Medicine (PUBMED). The search in the database was performed using the following key words: Bacterial resistance; Antibiotics; Public health; COVID-19. The study identified that bacterial resistance results in indiscriminate use, which will always be a very serious public health record, however, in order to have minimal control in the face of this global problem, and recent, in the face of the pandemic of the new coronavirus, it is increasingly necessary that professionals are aware of this evil and increasingly responsible.

Abstract: The Epitácio Pessoa reservoir (Boqueirão), is the second largest freshwater reservoir in the State of Paraíba, considered for most local farmers the main source of irrigation and currently supplies 19 municipalities, including Campina Grande, which is the largest among them. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the adverse environmental impacts caused by inadequate agricultural practices around the Epitácio Pessoa reservoir, as well as to propose environmental control measures. Initially, a check list of the environmental impacts presents in the vicinity of the Epitácio Pessoa reservoir, Municipality of Boqueirão-PB, was subsequently analyzed using the Pressure-State-Impact-Response methodology, making it possible to diagnose the environmental quality of the watershed, as well as the answers or absence of them for each type of impact on the environment. Information was also obtained through formal interviews with producers and photographic records. The results revealed that there are numerous environmental impacts on the dam today and that most of them do not present a response to its elimination or mitigation. Even though the watershed presents a relevant socioeconomic importance for the State of Paraíba, it is subjected to a continuous and gradual deterioration of environmental conditions, compromising its environmental quality, also evidencing the need for more effective interventions by the public authorities, represented by those of the responsible agencies.

Abstract: Neglected diseases (DNs) are a group of diseases caused by infectious or parasitic agents that are strongly associated with poverty, where the determinants for incidence are: inadequate housing, poor basic sanitation, insufficient drinking water, education and health services. Brazil is responsible for a large proportion of these diseases, especially in the northern and northeastern regions of the country, where there is a high rate of morbidity and mortality of the exposed population. The research aimed to compare the epidemiological profile of neglected pathologies in children in Brazil, between 2015 and 2017. As a method to obtain the data, a study was carried out through the Notification Disease Information System (SINAN).), provided by DATASUS / Ministry of Health, in which data were collected from the records in the notification forms for the diseases: schistosomiasis, dengue, visceral leishmaniasis, malaria, acute chagasic disease and pertussis. From the collected results, it was noticed that the southeast region predominated in cases of notification, considered one of the richest regions in the country, the incidence percentage was high, compared to the other regions, the predominant male gender and the susceptible age group. 10 to 14 years. It is concluded that DNs are a public health problem that mainly affects low-income families, causing morbidity and mortality in children exposed to the risk of infection or reinfection. Knowing the magnitude related to DNs is essential for monitoring, especially in regions where the incidence rate is high.

Abstract: Chronic rheumatic heart disease consists of a group of acute or chronic heart diseases that occurs as a result of rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease triggered by pharyngeal tonsillitis caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes. It is more frequent in children between 5 and 15 years of age. It can affect skin, joints, brain and heart. The most common complication is the damage to the mitral valve of the heart. To quantify the number of hospitalizations by age, sex and region of children and adolescents affected by chronic rheumatic heart disease. Through the database of the SUS Hospital Information System (SIH/SUS), the hospitalization forms for chronic rheumatic heart disease in Brazil were evaluated from 2016 to 2019, provided by DATASUS/Ministry of Health. The results showed that the most affected sex is female (57.57%), in the region the Southeast region stands out (41.34%). The city with the highest number of registered cases is São Paulo (19.55%), followed by Belo Horizonte (15.81%). Among the age group, it is the 10–14-year-old age group with the highest incidence, totaling 681 reported cases. This study expresses and proves that the female population is quite affected in Brazil. Among the cases analyzed, the female gender predominates in reported cases and the most affected age group is between 10 and 14 years. It was also evidenced that low educational level, as well as low income and poor basic sanitation are factors that influence the onset of the disease.

Abstract: With the role of nurses in Health Education, there is a decrease in cases of diseases that can be avoided, in the case of sexually transmitted infections from 2016 to 2017, it was notorious that the population is becoming aware, through the lectures that are offered and given in the USF's. To analyze the incidence and prevalence of syphilis in the State of Pernambuco from 2015 to 2017. Methods Cross-sectional, quantitative, descriptive work with secondary data obtained through SES-PE, Sinan and SINASC/State Program of STIs/AIDS/HV/DGCDA/SES/PE on congenital syphilis and acquired in the years 2015 to 2017, these data provided are preliminary and gender and age group were established. Until September 11, 2017, Pernambuco recorded 1,022 cases of congenital syphilis, when transmission occurs from mother to baby during pregnancy. In all of 2016 there were 1,507 cases and in 2015, 1,363. The disease is easy to diagnose and has treatment available free of charge in the Unified Health System (SUS). In addition to cases of congenital syphilis, SES also records the occurrences in pregnant women and in the general (acquired) public. In the case of pregnant women, there were 870 cases in 2015, 953 in 2016 and 835 in 2017 (up to 11.09). In relation to acquired syphilis, there were 1,319 cases in 2015, 2,657 in 2016 and 1,829 in 2017. The results of this research, considering the proposed objectives, indicate that the number of inhabitants in general (men and women) including pregnant women and children, have had a significant decline for individual and population health, of sexually transmitted infections. This decrease is most likely given by nursing care with lectures, and prevention alerts of STIs.

Abstract: Syphilis is considered an infectious disease, when it affects pregnant women, it can cause congenital syphilis, causing consequences for the conceptus. Congenital syphilis is due to the hematogenous dissemination of Treponema pallidum from pregnant women to her conceptus, by transplant. Congenital syphilis is considered a serious public health problem for Brazil. To describe the epidemiological profile of syphilis in the state of Pernambuco from 2015 to 2017. Secondary data were used from the Database of the Department of Informatics of SUS (DATASUS) through notifications of congenital syphilis, covering the state of Pernambuco from 2015 to 2017 by the Notifiable Diseases Information System (SINAN) and tabulated by TABNET. 5,097 cases of congenital syphilis were recorded in the state of Pernambuco from 2015 to 2017. The year in which a higher rate of cases was observed was in 2017 with 37.15% (n=1,894) the city of Recife had the highest rate of reported cases, among all cities of Pernambuco with 59.46% (n= 3,031) according to the most predominant race was mixed with 70.23% (n=3,580) it was observed that most mothers had the 5th to 8th incomplete grade of elementary school, totaling 34.37% (n=1,752). The number of mothers who underwent prenatal care was 77.26%, (n=3,938) it was also observed that the majority did not treat their partners reaching 45.16%. (n=2,302). With the high numbers of confirmed cases of congenital syphilis, it is necessary that primary care has control of the disease, investigates syphilis in pregnant women, creating strategies to reduce these numbers, it is suggested, early diagnosis of maternal infection, because the earlier the diagnosis, the greater the possibility of completing treatment in a timely manner, thus avoiding vertical transmission to the newborn, preventing complications from appearing to the fetus.

Abstract: Cardiovascular pathologies are a public health problem of great relevance, where hospital expenses, mortality and death rates and high mortality rates, however, the support of information for situational analysis and health planning is of relevant importance. Where, reports via the public information system, consists of subsidies for planning, execution of actions and decision making. It is also an important indicator in the preparation of health actions, task, with the establishment of methods, strategic evaluations and goals in health services. Therefore, the reports of financing, permanence and deaths in cardiovascular pathologies stimulates the analysis of costs, concomitantly, causes analysis of management actions in the function to promote quality and safety in the execution of the provision of health services, besides having a positive impact on decision-making by reducing or minimizing risk factors in the face of poor planning. To verify data and compare them on financing, stay in the hospital unit and the amounts and rate of deaths of patients with cardiovascular pathologies. The search strategy was delineated in the databases of the Ministry of Health (MS) DATASUS, Hospital Information System (SIH), and NET TAB of the Government of the State of Pernambuco. The criteria for data extraction six large hospitals in the State of Pernambuco, authorization of hospitalization, hospitalization, quantitative and death rate, sex of patients hospitalized for cardiovascular pathologies, in comparative analysis in June and May 2018. After extraction in a database, via TAB NET of the State of Pernambuco, 12 worksheets appeared that referred to the association of the factors sought. Among these worksheets, 05 worksheets were described and presented. Where, funding values, deaths, mortality rate and gender were described. The total financing values of the regional health of May and June, where, in the comparisons, investment of R$ 8,225,987.87 was demonstrated, which is equivalent to 92% of the total investment of the State. The information system has a positive impact on health planning actions, especially when describing an analysis on cardiovascular pathologies, where this pathology requires high-cost investment from prevention in primary care to treatment in intensive care units.

Abstract: Measles is a viral and transmissible disease that is related to the circulation of the virus, immunity and vulnerability of the population, also linked to socioeconomic conditions. The safe, low-cost triple viral vaccine is used to prevent it. Many cases are being reported worldwide, including Brazil. Therefore, control strategies through vaccination should be applied. To analyze the incidence of measles cases and deaths in Brazil. Cohort study that analyzed the years 2018 to 2019. Through the database of the Notifiable Diseases Information System (SINAN), the epidemiological profile and vaccination indicators in Brazil, provided by DATASUS/Ministry of Health, were analyzed. The results showed that the states of the northern region of Brazil, Amazonas, Roraima and Pará, during the period from 2018 to 2019, were the most affected by measles, and had as a consequence the evolution of some cases to death. Due to the reappearance of measles cases in Brazil, it is important to analyze its incidence and consequent death rate. As well as, strategies to reduce these numbers, associated with vigorous epidemiological surveillance and vaccination coverage, allowing the acquisition of measures to cease their transmission.

Abstract: Heart transplantation is currently evaluated as an alternative for the treatment of diseases of which they were previously considered out of therapeutic possibility. Cardiovascular diseases are the main causes of death in Brazil and in several developed countries. Among them is heart failure, which is a condition considered severe and irreversible. Today, with the advance of medicine and technology, for the treatment of irreversible heart failure, heart transplantation has been used as the last possibility of intervention. Therefore, this aimed to verify the epidemiological profile of patients submitted to heart transplantation at the Heart Institute of Pernambuco INCOR/PE. A descriptive retrospective study was developed that seeks to describe and quantify patients who underwent cardiac surgery through medical records provided by the institute from April 2000 to April 2016, through medical records analysis. Information on the epidemiological data of patients is effective for a better understanding of the person with social reality. Due to this, little is known to suffer the epidemiological profile of patients who are submitted to heart transplantation. Heart transplantation (CT) is the treatment of choice for many patients with end-stage HF who remain symptomatic despite medical therapy. The main causes of morbidity and late mortality of patients undergoing CT are infections, chronic kidney disease, vascular disease of the cardiac graft. The inclusion of surgical techniques and improvement in postoperative care demonstrated an evolution in long-term results after CT.

Abstract: Intoxication can be defined as the manifestation of toxic signs and symptoms caused by one or more chemicals (exogenous) when it comes into contact with the living organism. The composition, dose and route of exposure are key factors that indicate the severity of intoxications, such as simultaneous exposure and other toxics, the form of nutrition of the child, age and pre-existing health conditions Accidents with children in this age group is one of the main public health problems in the world. And in developed countries, it composes the main cause of mortality in children over one year of age, contributes considerably as morbidity in childhood. The process of human exogenous intoxication is characterized as one of the most significant public health problems, due to the lack of control and care strategies, related to the easy access of the population to licit and illicit substances with a high degree of toxicity. To analyze cases of exogenous intoxication in children and adolescents aged 0 to 14 years in Brazil from 2015 to 201.Through secondary databases of the Notifiable Diseases Information System (SINAN), provided by DATASUS/Ministry of Health, and the National System of Toxic-Pharmacological Information (SINITOX), is responsible for the compilation, collection, dissemination and analysis of cases of intoxication and poisoning. The population was resisted in the compulsory notification forms in the SINAN Database in Brazil, in the year 2015 to 2017. The results show that the female sex is the most affected, with a percentage of (52%), in the region stands out in the Southeast region (43%). Among the age group, it is the 1–4-year-old group with the highest incidence, totaling 40,255 reported cases. The study made it possible to identify the epidemiological profile of exogenous poisoning in Brazil from data from DATASUS, which showed that medications and household use, food and beverages are the most involved toxic agents, however children aged 1 to 4 years were the most affected, with the most prevalent female gender.

Abstract: Congenital syphilis disease caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum, has been a disease for epidemiological surveillance purposes since 1986. Its form of transmission occurs from the infected mother untreated or treated incorrectly to the fetus through transplacental, the drug used for treatment is penicillin, an antibiotic derived from mold produced by the fungus Penicillium crysogenum. The test for diagnosis of Congenital Syphilis should be performed at the first prenatal consultation, in the last three months of pregnancy and at the time of prepartum. Therefore, in order to be able to make the diagnosis accurately, it is necessary to evaluate the clinical history of the mother, also to perform the physical examination of the offspring and to have the results of the tests. To investigate the incidence and prevalence of congenital syphilis at the Regional Hospital of Palmares. This is a quantitative, descriptive study, data were collected through secondary data collection - SINAN. Case of congenital syphilis in 2018 (n=9) and detection rate (n=14.3); cases of gestational syphilis in 2018 (n=23) and detection rate (n=20.4). The results of the study revealed a significant increase in syphilis indices and indicators in 2018.
