The cultivation of bananas presents several activities aiming the product processing. Some of these activities are a physical burden to workers, especially to their upper limbs. Therefore, this project analyzed the banana tumbling with the purpose of identifying the critical aspects and, consequently, defining the requirements for redesigning the t...

We have an interest in the handling posture at the logistic workplace. Although a lot of studies on compressive and shear forces on lumbar spine have been reported, there was little studies on the difference of asymmetric lifting between logistic workers and beginners with the comparison of measured results. The main purpose of this study was to an...

JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: As lesões por esforços repetitivos/distúrbios osteomusculares relacionados ao trabalho têm afetado inúmeros trabalhadores rurais, ocasionando comprometimentos funcionais. O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a prevalência de distúrbios osteomusculares relacionados ao trabalho na bananicultura. MÉTODOS: Foi obtida a listagem de trabalhadores vinculados à Estratégia da Família e foram aplicados um questionário para obter dados sociodemográficos, da propriedade rural, de saúde e trabalho; e o Questionário Nórdico de Sintomas Osteomusculares. Os dados foram analisados estatisticamente por meio do programa estatístico R Development Core Team®. RESULTADOS: Participaram da pesquisa 36 trabalhadores de 10 propriedades rurais, sendo a maioria do sexo masculino (94,4%), com faixa etária entre 20 e 49 anos (75,0%), e ensino fundamental incompleto (50,0%). Em relação aos distúrbios osteomusculares, as principais regiões acometidas foram: lombar (63,9%); ombros (47,2%) e joelhos (44,4%), havendo mais uma região acometida por trabalhador. No trabalho, foram relacionadas tarefas penosas/cansativas junto ao corte, carregamento, adubação, pulverização costal de agrotóxico, roçado e desbaste. CONCLUSÃO: Há riscos de distúrbios osteomusculares entre os trabalhadores da bananicultura, com riscos de afastamento do trabalho e prejuízos em atividades cotidianas. Há necessidade de aprofundar o tema visando a promoção da saúde do trabalhador. Descritores: Agricultura; Dor musculoesquelética; População do campo; Saúde do trabalhador

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Work-related repetitive strain injury/musculoskeletal disorders affect numerous rural workers causing functional physical impairment. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders in banana culture workers. METHODS: From a list of banana culture workers linked to the Family Strategy, a questionnaire was applied to obtain socio-demographic data, rural property, health and labor, and the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire. Data were statistically analyzed using the statistical software R Development Core Team®. RESULTS: Thirty-six workers from ten rural properties participated in the study. The majority were male (94.4%), age group from 20 to 49 years (75.0%), most of them with incomplete primary education (50.0%). Regarding musculoskeletal disorders, the main regions affected were lumbar (63.9%), shoulders (47.2%) and knees (44.4%), with more than one region affected per worker. Regarding the work, tasks were described as painful and tiring including cutting, loading, fertilization, costal pulverization of pesticide, plowing and thinning. CONCLUSION: There are risks of musculoskeletal disorders among banana workers with risks of leave of absence due to illness, which may lead to losses in daily activities. There is a need to deepen the theme to promote health at work. Keywords: Agriculture, Musculoskeletal pain, Occupational health, Rural population health.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Studies have demonstrated that the cannabinoid CB1 receptor is involved in the modulation of pain, mainly by activating the descending pain control pathway. However, the role of photobiomodulation in this process is not well elucidated. Thus, the present study aimed to investigate the involvement of the CB1 receptor in the supraspinal photobiomodulation-induced antinociception. METHODS: Male albino swiss mice were submitted to chronic constriction injury and treated with photobiomodulation. To evaluate the supraspinal involvement of the CB1 receptor in the photobiomodulation-induced antinociception, the cannabinoid CB1 receptor antagonist AM251 (0.1µg/vol 0.2µL) was injected 5 minutes before the photobiomodulation treatment. The photobiomodulation treatment was performed on the fifth day after the stereotactic surgery and chronic constriction injury at a dose of 50J/cm² in acute condition. The hot plate and von Frey monofilaments tests were performed to evaluate the thermal and mechanical pain sensitivity, respectively. RESULTS: The thermal and mechanical nociceptive threshold was higher in mice with chronic constriction injury, injected with saline and treated with photobiomodulation at the dose of 50J/cm² in both the hot plate (p<0.001) and von Frey (p>0.001) tests. These antinociceptive effects were not detected in mice with chronic constriction injury pre-treated with AM251. CONCLUSION: The present study suggests that CB1 receptors located in Supraspinal structures, participate in the control of neuropathic pain following photobiomodulation treatment in animals undergoing chronic constriction injury.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The use of opioids in cancer is already widespread and proven by several well-controlled clinical trials. However, the elderly with cancer pain are=un-dertreated due to the lack of knowledge in the management of these patients, the underestimation of pain, as well as the fear of complications arising in this age group. Therefore, the scientific community contributes to giving inputs to create possible clinical and health guidelines. The present study aimed to perform a systematic literature review of opioid treatments proposed for cancer-related pain in elderly patients. CONTENTS: The search on the literature included papers addressing cancer pain treatment with opioids among the elderly, published from 2008 to 2018, and available in Portuguese or English. Searches were conducted on Medical Literature, Analysis, and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE) and Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature (LILACS) electronic databases using the keywords “cancer pain”, “opioids”, and “elderly” in both languages, combined with the Boolean operator “AND”. To analyze the quality of the method, the adapted Critical Appraisal Skills Programme was used. Of a total of 411 studies found, 32 were included. About 75% of the selected articles were published in the last five years. CONCLUSION: The results showed that opioids remain the pillar to treat cancer-related pain in the elderly. They can be used for better management of pain, but with caution due to the possible adverse effects. In addition, pain management in the elderly requires a multifactorial analysis, including comorbidities, polypharmacy, and patient functionality. Therefore, an individualized approach in the elderly patient is required in order to enhance results, reduce side effects, and improve quality of life.
