Objective Social capital incorporates both contextual and individual levels of interactions and influences health. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of neighborhood and individual social capital on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of children.Methods This 7-year cohort study was conducted with 639 children (1–5 years) who had been evaluated initially with a survey administered in 2010. OHRQoL was assessed using the Brazilian version of the Child Perception Questionnaire (CPQ8-10) in the follow-up. Contextual variables related to social capital were collected during the baseline and included the presence of social class associations, workers’ associations, and cultural community centers. Individual variables included individual social networks, socioeconomic variables, and oral health measures (dental caries and overjet). A multilevel Poisson regression model was used to investigate the influence of individual and contextual characteristics on OHRQoL. With this approach, we calculated incidence rate ratio (IRR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI).ResultsFrom the 639 preschoolers examined at baseline, a total of 449 children were re-evaluated after 7 years (70.3% response rate). Children who lived in areas with social class associations at baseline reported better OHRQoL in the follow-up (IRR 0.79; 95% CI 0.67–0.93). Regarding individual variables, low socioeconomic status, poor clinical conditions, and weak social networks were also associated with higher overall CPQ8-10 scores.Conclusions High levels of individual and neighborhood social capital in early childhood positively influenced children’s OHRQoL. This finding is important in planning public health policies to improve children’s health and well-being.

O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar o conhecimento e as práticas do controle de higiene bucal (HB) em pacientes internados em unidades de terapia intensiva (UTI). Foi realizado um estudo transversal com 41 profissionais de saúde atuantes em UTI por meio da aplicação de questionário composto de dados sociodemográficos e questões sobre a HB de pacientes hospitalizados. Análises estatísticas descritivas e bivariadas, usando o teste exato de Fischer (p<0,05) foram realizadas. A maioria dos profissionais estava na faixa etária de 30 a 39 anos (n=15; 36,6%), era do sexo feminino (n=37; 90,2%) e técnico (a) de Enfermagem (n=33; 80,5%). A maioria (n=38; 92,68%) respondeu que o hospital no qual trabalhava não possui cirurgião-dentista integrado à equipe, o técnico em enfermagem é o profissional responsável pela HB dos pacientes (n=41; 100%). Poucos profissionais afirmaram que existia protocolo de HB (n=11; 26,8%) e utilizar gluconato de clorexidina a 0,12% (n=12; 29,3%). Diferença estatistica-mente significativa foi observada entre o tipo de hospital e o tipo de substância utilizada para realização da HB (p = 0,020). Evidencia-se a necessidade de desenvolver e ampliar atividades de ensino, pesquisa e extensão relacionadas à Odontologia Hospitalar nos cursos de Odontologia no Brasil.

The prevalence of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) in intensive care units (ICUs) is increasing worldwide, with very large variations across countries, microorganisms, and settings. Emerging MDR gram-negative bacteria and fungi raise particular concerns that require improved prevention and control strategies. Vertical approaches are mainly based on screening and contact precautions and/or decolonization of MDRO carriers. On the other hand, horizontal strategies are not pathogen-specific and include standard precautions (i.e., hand hygiene), universal decolonization, antimicrobial stewardship, and environmental cleaning. The impacts of the different strategies vary between MDROs and compliance with control measures, and are intermixed in most infection control programs. Based on historical data, hand hygiene remains the cornerstone to prevent transmission of MDROs in ICUs. In the context of high hand hygiene compliance, screening and contact precautions for carriers seem to have a limited additional effect, particularly for MDR gram-negative bacteria. Studies on skin decolonization with chlorhexidine bathing show conflicting results, impairing its widespread adoption. Selective oral and digestive decontaminations have shown positive impact on clinical outcomes in ICUs with low levels of antibiotic resistance, but raised ecological concerns in high-prevalence settings. Antibiotic stewardship programs have been associated with reductions in antimicrobial use, duration of stay, and costs with no negative impact on mortality and should be widely promoted in ICUs. Whatever the strategy, compliance with the recommended measures is of crucial importance and implementation should rely on behavioral approach and change in the institutional and safety culture.

Objective: The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to assess whether toothbrushing-based oral heath measure (OHM), performed in intensive care units, can reduce the risk of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Background: Dental biofilm removal has been considered important to prevent VAP. Methods: PUBMED, SCOPUS, WEB OF SCIENCE and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) databases were searched up to and including December 2018 to identify randomized clinical trials (RCT) on the use of toothbrushing procedures in the prevention of VAP. Search was conducted by two independent reviewers. The risk of bias of each included study was assessed using the Cochrane Collaboration's domain-based, two-part tool. Random effects meta-analyses were conducted thoroughly. Results: Search strategy identified 215 potentially eligible articles, of which 12 RCT were included. All studies evidenced the importance of OHM in mechanically ventilated patients in order to prevent VAP. Seven RCT (58.3%) found some degree of positive association between toothbrushing, alone or associated to oral topical chlorhexidine (CHX), and a potential reduction of mechanical ventilation-related outcomes and dental biofilm/oral bacteria. However, pooled estimates did not identify an additional decrease of VAP incidence for any of the tested procedures (ie, toothbrushing + CHX versus swab/gauze cleaning + CHX or toothbrushing + CHX versus toothbrushing alone or + placebo). Conclusions: Toothbrushing does not seem to promote a reduction of VAP-outcomes compared to swab/gauze cleaning, when topic CHX is applied for oral hygiene of patients submitted to mechanical ventilation.

In order to analyze the alteration mechanism after the exposure to various maximum temperatures and immersion in pure water, non-destructive integrated CT-XRD method (the CT-XRD) was applied. Firstly, the verification of the CT-XRD was carried out to compare with conventional powder X-ray diffraction. It revealed that the CT-XRD could evaluate the crystals properly with a given limitation for low energy band. Besides, the CT-XRD indicated the advantage that can detect the presence of crystals which cannot be detected after grinding in preparing the powder sample for the conventional powder XRD. Then, the carbonated cement paste that was heated at 200, 400, 600, and 800 °C followed by immersion in pure water was evaluated by the CT-XRD. The results suggest that sample heated at 400 °C showed the resistance of leaching at most. In addition, rehydration of clinker minerals generated due to heating at 800 °C could be identified although the hydration product was easily dissolved into water.

This study explored the relationships between sex, socio‐economic status, social support, social network, dental clinical status, dental pain, oral health‐related quality of life (OHRQoL), and self‐rated oral health (SROH) in adolescents. A cross‐sectional study involving 542 adolescents, aged 12–14 yr, was conducted in Dourados, Brazil, to collect dental clinical measures (dental caries, missing teeth, and dental trauma), as well as measures of social support, social network, dental pain, OHRQoL, and SROH. Information on family income and parental education were collected from participant's parents. Structural equation modeling showed that higher income predicted better dental status and better SROH. Greater social support was linked to better dental status and better OHRQoL. Having more social networks was directly linked to better dental status. Poor dental status was linked to dental pain and poor OHRQoL. Dental pain predicted poor OHRQoL and worse SROH. Poor OHRQoL predicted worse SROH. Family income, social support, and social networks indirectly predicted dental pain via dental status. The latter was indirectly linked to OHRQoL and SROH via dental pain. Social support and social networks indirectly predicted OHRQoL and SROH via dental status and dental pain. Socio‐economic factors and social relationships should be considered when planning health promotion and dental care provision to improve an adolescent's oral health.

Fire poses serious threat to the life of structure and occupants, as it induces detrimental effects at structural level both short term and long term. Keeping in view the importance of fire performance of concrete , various researchers have evaluated the behavioral characteristics of concrete under such conditions. The safety and serviceable life of concrete structures after exposure to fire depend on two important factors i.e. residual strength and durability. In this paper, a comprehensive and updated review on the durability of concrete containing various mineral admixtures after being exposed to elevated temperatures is presented. Durability of concrete after fire exposure is measured through indirect tests such as chloride ion permeability, water permeability, absorption and sorptivity. Thus the test methods and available literature on the aforementioned techniques has been elaborately reviewed and summarized. The recent trends followed to improve the durability performance of concrete in the post-fire conditions have also been discussed and future research needs have been identified. However, to properly understand the durability performance of fire exposed concrete structures constructed with sustainable con-cretes, a great deal of work is required in this particular domain.

A normalized mortar was severely heated at different temperatures up to 600 °C that led to a strong material degradation linked to its loss of water and to the Portlandite decomposition. These heating were followed by pure water rehydration as these operations have proven to be efficient as regards the recovery in the transfer properties. The present study is based on the main material's poromechanical property measurements with gas as the pressurized porous fluid. They are useful to indicate, after heating, the strong increase of the mortar's skeleton compressibility and of its expansion due to internal pressure. These phenomena are due to heating micro-cracking, pore widening and to a material fractioning highlighted with the increase in its Biot's coefficient. Unambiguously, rehydration led to a visible recovery of the mortar's poromechanical properties that is linked to newly formed hydrates.
