In Brazil, the pandemic arrived at the end of February 2020 and has been causing alarm due to the increase in the number of contaminated people related to the high capacity of transmission of the disease. In affected patients, the virus can cause from simple symptoms, which can be treated at home, to hospital admissions, assistance in intensive care units and can even lead to death2. In the midst of this pandemic, the professionals who assist patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection constitute a population at high risk of contagion. In this way, preventive measures such as adequate hand hygiene and the use of personal protective equipment(PPE) have been reinforced. 2020-03-30T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Aline Oliveira Ramalho, Paula de Souza Silva Freitas, Paula Cristina Nogueira https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/866 Accredited enterostomal therapy courses for excellence 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Juliano Teixeira Moraes julianotmoraes@ufsj.edu.br Vera Lúcia Conceição de Gouveia Santos veras@usp.br Sônia Regina Pérez Evangelista Dantas srpedantas@gmail.com Maria Angela Boccara de Paula boccaradepaula@gmail.com Until the end of the 1970s, enterostomal therapy could be practiced by other health professionals and even lay people. But soon after the creation of the World Council of Enterostomal Therapists (WCETTM) in 1978, this became an exclusive specialty of nurses (from 1980 onwards). 2020-05-15T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Juliano Teixeira Moraes, Vera Lúcia Conceição de Gouveia Santos, Sônia Regina Pérez Evangelista Dantas, Maria Angela Boccara de Paula https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/828 Clean intermittent catheterization in patients with spinal cord injury: knowledge of nurses 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Gisela Maria Assis giassis21@hotmail.com Roberta Silmara Miranda mirandarobertas@gmail.com Ana Claudia Lima Dornellas ana.lima.dornellas@gmail.com Aline Maria Benedita Messias aline_messias20@hotmail.com Valeria Teles Batista valeriatelles.enf@gmail.com João Júnior Gomes joaojunior@educative.com.br <strong>Introduction</strong>: Spinal cord injury results in failure to empty the bladder, leaving the individual exposed to the risk of recurrent urinary tract infection, vesicoureteral reflux and even loss of renal function. Clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) is the method of choice for emptying the bladder in these cases. Although it has a simple technique, its performance should be well oriented in order to avoid complications such as infections or traumas. Guidance for the technique should be performed during the hospitalization period due to the injury and the nurse is responsible for this action. <strong>Objective:</strong> To evaluate the knowledge of nurses working in a trauma care hospital in relation to clean intermittent catheterization. <strong>Methods:</strong> Questionnaire constructed based on the guidelines of the European Association of Urological Nurses, applied to 18 nurses from a university hospital, a reference in the treatment of spinal trauma, regarding neurological dysfunction of the lower urinary tract and clean intermittent catheterization. <strong>Results:</strong> The participants presented expressive knowledge about lower urinary tract neurological dysfunction and CIC. There were errors regarding the CIC technique in the indication of the use of procedure gloves, in the lubrication of the catheter, collection of periodic urine cultures, use of antibiotics and in the need for instructions before discharge from hospital. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Although the sample demonstrated knowledge on several issues related to the subject, the errors indicate the need for training and especially awareness of the responsibility of guidance before discharge from hospital. 2020-04-28T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 ROBERTA SILMARA MIRANDA, Gisela Maria Assis, Ana Claudia Lima Dornellas, Aline Maria Benedita Messias, Valeria Teles Batista, João Júnior Gomes https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/698 Clinical and epidemiological aspects of children and adults with intestinal stoma of the Bahia-Brazil reference center 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Ana Claudia Gonzaga Lemos anaclaudia_gonzaga@hotmail.com Aurenice Karine Almeida Albergaria karinealbergaria@hotmail.com Karina Portugual Araújo karyportugal@hotmail.com Eline Lima Borges elineufmg@gmail.com José Ferreira Pires Junior piresjuniorr@gmail.com <strong>Objective:</strong> To characterize children and adults with intestinal stoma in relation to sociodemographic and clinical aspects of the State Reference Center of Bahia. <strong>Method:</strong> This is a cross-sectional descriptive research, with a quantitative approach and a convenience sample of 43 patients that met the inclusion criteria. The data were collected through an interview and evaluation of the stoma and skin, around and analyzed by descriptive statistics, with frequency and percentage distribution.<strong> Results:</strong> There was a predominance of males, aged between 40 and 59 years old, unmarried, with incomplete elementary education, family income of a minimum wage, having colorectal cancer and firearm trauma as responsible for the stoma. It emphasized the occurrence of temporary descending colostomy, use of a drainable device, a single piece, with a cut-off, with a cut greater than the diameter of the stoma, presence of dermatitis. Stomatal hygiene and device switching were performed independently. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The results of the study indicated a need to reassess the strategies used in specialized care, with emphasis on educational actions aimed at self-care and greater participation of the user in the program, aiming at their rehabilitation and improvement in quality of life. 2020-05-15T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Revista Estima https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/825 The senses of being an enterostomal therapist nurse: complexities involved in the specialty 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Carolina Cabral Pereira da Costa carolcuerj@hotmail.com Norma Valéria Dantas de Oliveira Souza norval_souza@yahoo.com.br Ellen Marcia Peres ellenperes@globo.com Manoel Luis Cardoso Vieira mlcv22@bol.com.br Jakeline Costa dos Santos jakeline.flamenguista@gmail.com Rafael Seabra Polidoro Cardoso rafaelspc93@gmail.com <strong>Objective:</strong> To describe the meanings of being an enterostomal therapist considering the complexity of the process of caring for people with wounds, stomas and incontinence. <strong>Method:</strong> A qualitative, descriptive-exploratory study, conducted through a semistructured interview, between the months of January to April 2018, with 22 graduates from a specialization course in Nursing in Enterostomal Therapy from a public university in the Southeast region, following the snowball technique. Documental research was also carried out in order to complement the data analysis. <strong>Results:</strong> The interviewed graduates reported that being an enterostomal therapist is taking care of people who have a wound, stoma and/or incontinence, which means they recognized the essence of the specialty. They emphasized that being an enterostomal therapist is to care for people who may be marginalized/stigmatized by society, to work with a focus on the patient’s rehabilitation, seeking social reintegration and independence, and to know how to be an entrepreneur. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The meaning of being an enterostomal therapist involves being inserted in a specialty that provides flexibility in the job market and an entrepreneurial character, which gives professional recognition and even financial satisfaction. It is suggested, therefore, that further studies be carried out in this area, contributing to the fields of assistance, teaching, research and extension. 2020-06-04T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Carolina Cabral Pereira da Costa, Norma Valéria Dantas de Oliveira Souza, Ellen Marcia Peres, Manoel Luis Cardoso Vieira, Jakeline Costa dos Santos, Rafael Seabra Polidoro Cardoso https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/845 Psychosocial factors of patients with venous leg ulcers and their association with healing 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Johana Enyd Cifuentes Rodriguez jecifuentesr@unal.edu.co Sandra Guerrero Gamboa nsguerrerog@unal.edu.co <strong>Objectives:</strong> To identify psychosocial factors present in patients with venous leg ulcers and the association that these factors have in the healing of venous leg ulcers. <strong>Methods:</strong> An integrative review of the quantitative studies in MEDLINE, Scielo and Cochrane Library databases, between 2008 and 2019, using the keywords, psychosocial factors, venous ulcer, wound healing, anxiety and depression in English, Spanish and Portuguese. <strong>Results:</strong> sixteen studies were included. The psychosocial factors present in patients with venous ulcers were depression, anxiety, feelings of helplessness, subjective well-being, self-esteem, loneliness and spirituality. Stress, a negative perception of venous ulcer, living alone and severe experience of symptoms such as pain and depression have statistically significant associations with longer periods of healing. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> Depression is one of the most frequently measured factors and present in this population. The available evidence on the association of psychosocial factors with the healing of venous ulcers is low. 2020-06-08T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Johana Enyd Cifuentes Rodriguez https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/849 Incidence of pressure injury and nursing care time in intensive care 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Yasmin Cardoso Metwaly Mohamed Ali yasminma16@gmail.com Taís Milena Milena Pantaleão Souza taismilena@hotmail.com Paulo Carlos Garcia paulogarcia@usp.br Paula Cristina Nogueira pcnogueira@usp.br <strong>Objectives:</strong> To correlate the incidence of pressure injury (PI) with the average time of nursing care in an intensive care unit (ICU). <strong>Method:</strong> Epidemiological, observational, retrospective study, carried out in the ICU of a university hospital. Data were collected by consulting the PI incidence and the average nursing care time from ICU databases between 2010 and 2014. Measures of central tendency and variability, and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were used for data analysis. <strong>Results:</strong> The average incidence of PI between 2010 and 2014 was 10.83% (SD = 2.87) and the average time spent in nursing care for patients admitted to the ICU was 15 hours (SD = 0.94). There was no statistically significant correlation between the incidence of PI and the nursing care time (r = -0.17; p = 0.199), however, the results suggested an overload on the nursing team. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> This study confirms the importance of implementing and reassessing the effectiveness of preventive care protocols for PI, in addition to warning about the work overload of nursing in assisting critically ill patients. 2020-06-10T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Yasmin Cardoso Metwaly Mohamed Ali, Taís Milena Milena Pantaleão Souza, Paulo Carlos Garcia, Paula Cristina Nogueira https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/830 Socio-demographic and intestinal elimination profile in women treated at a health service 2020-06-10T22:10:09-03:00 Rhaylla Maria Pio Leal Jaques rhaylla.maria@hotmail.com Elaine Carininy Lopes da Costa ninyenfbio@ifpi.edu.br Gisela Maria de Assis giassis21@hotmail.com Aline Costa de Oliveira alinecosta.1@hotmail.com Claudia Daniella Avelino Vasconcelos Benício cdavb2010@hotmail.com Sandra Marina Gonçalves Bezerra sandramarina20@hotmail.com <p class="p1"><strong>Objective:</strong> To investigate the profile of intestinal eliminations in women. <strong>Method:</strong> Cross-sectional study conducted with 41 women seen at a women’s health center in the state of Piauí in Brazil.

The articles linked the theory to diabetic foot, venous ulcer, leg/lower limb ulcers (no specification of type), burns and pressure injury. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Orem’s theory was applied to a variety of individuals and contexts, its applicability within the scope of wounds is something concrete, regardless of the type of injury. 2020-06-10T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Larissa Houly de Almeida Melo, Thaís Honório Lins Bernardo, Jane Keyla Souza dos Santos Macedo, Leilane Camila Ferreira de Lima Francisco, Alice Correia Barros https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/848 Nursing interventions to reduce surgical site infection in potentially contaminated surgeries: an integrative review 2020-07-14T17:32:03-03:00 Tatiana Martins tatiana_martins15@hotmail.com Lúcia Nazareth Amante luciamante@gmail.com Camila Vicente camilavicente.enf@gmail.com Gabrielle Maciel de Sousa gabyh_sousa@hotmail.com Emanuele Pozzebon Caurio emanuelecaurio@yahoo.com.br Maria Elena Echevarría Guanilo gua@estima.com.br Juliana Balbinot Reis Girondi gitondi@est.com.br <strong>Objective:</strong> Identify nursing interventions that contribute to the reduction of surgical site infections in potentially contaminated surgeries. <strong>Methods:</strong> Integrative review, carried out in four databases. There were 5,888 articles published in the period from January 2008 to July 2018, in English, Portuguese and Spanish, from which nine articles were selected after final analysis. <strong>Results:</strong> The nursing interventions appeared according to the perioperative periods: preoperative (55.55%), intraoperative (33.33%), postoperative (66.66%), being associated with: antibiotic therapy, trichotomy, alcoholic chlorhexidine bathing, hand hygiene, sterile glove/wear/ package change for fascia and skin closure, degermination, antisepsis, surgical classification, surgical time, care with dressings and drains, temperature and blood glucose control, patient education, discharge and post-hospital discharge orientation. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> Nursing interventions were identified in each perioperative period, proving to be essential for the qualification of nursing care and effective in reducing surgical site infection in potentially contaminated surgeries. 2020-07-11T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Tatiana Martins, Lúcia Nazareth Amante, Camila Vicente, Gabrielle Maciel de Sousa, Emanuele Pozzebon Caurio https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/870 Digital technologies in the prevention of diabetic foot: a review on mobile applications 2020-07-17T10:22:11-03:00 Sabado Gomes Dabó sagoda94@outlook.com Maria Girlane Sousa Albuquerque Brandão girlane.albuquerque@yahoo.com.br Thiago Moura de Araújo thiagomoura@unilab.edu.br Natasha Marques Frota natasha@unilab.edu.br Vivian Saraiva Veras vivian@unilab.edu.br Analyze mobile applications developed for prevention of diabetic foot. Method: Integrative review, with searches in LILACS, BDENF, Scopus, Web of Science and PubMed databases, from 2000 to 2019. After eligibility criteria, the sample consisted of nine articles. Results: The mobile applications for prevention of diabetic foot are based on online foot monitoring through images, evaluation of thermal images of the feet, capture of images of the sole of the foot, recommendations for self-care with the feet and classification of the risk of diabetic foot. The analysis of the articles shows that the applications were considered a good prevention strategy. Conclusion: This study enabled the identification of nine mobile applications developed for prevention of diabetic foot, with predominance in the use of thermometry as the main measure for prevention and early detection of diabetic foot ulcers, with the use of thermal images and sensors associated with the mobile application. 2020-07-17T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Sabado Gomes Dabó, Maria Girlane Sousa Albuquerque Brandão, Thiago Moura de Araújo, Natasha Marques Frota, Vivian Saraiva Veras https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/907 Difficulties of patients and caregivers in performing clean intermittent catheterization: scoping review 2020-07-14T17:02:52-03:00 Leonardo Orlandin leonardo.orlandin@usp.br Aguinaldo Nardi aguinaldonardi@gmail.com Raphael Raniere de Oliveira Costa raphaelraniere@hotmail.com Alessandra Mazzo amazzo@usp.br <p class="p1"><strong>Objective</strong>: To identify the main difficulties reported by patients and caregivers in the use of clean intermittent catheterization described in the scientific literature. <strong>Methods:</strong> Scoping review with studies published in Portuguese, English or Spanish, without date limit, in electronic databases and digital libraries, using descriptors and keywords. <strong>Results:</strong> 790 studies were identified, including 34 studies published between 1984 and 2019. The main difficulties reported in performing clean intermittent catheterization were related to catheter insertion, pain, discomfort, urethral trauma, public bathrooms with inadequate facilities, physical difficulties and lack of access to necessary inputs. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The studies analyzed show the difficulties that patients who use clean intermittent catheterization and their caregivers face on a daily basis, which are related to intrinsic and extrinsic, institutional and governmental factors and can decrease satisfaction and adherence to rehabilitation programs bladder, with an impact on the quality of life of patients and their caregivers. Therefore, it highlights the need for health education for the proper teaching of performing clean intermittent catheterization, emphasizing the importance of the nurse’s role in this process.</p> 2020-09-10T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Leonardo Orlandin, Alessandra Mazzo, Aguinaldo Nardi, Raphael Raniere de Oliveira Costa
