Trata-se de um estudo exploratório-descritivo e retrospectivo com os objetivos de identificar, a partir dos dados contidos nos prontuários, diagnósticos de enfermagem; e caracterizar esses diagnósticos através de um mapeamento utilizando a Taxonomia II da North American Nursing Diagnosis Association. A coleta de dados foi realizada em outubro e novembro de 2006, aplicando-se um roteiro, com oito perguntas fechadas, em todos os prontuários (196) existentes no Programa Interdisciplinar de Geriatria e Gerontologia da Universidade Federal Fluminense, Niterói - RJ. Os dados foram agrupados e organizados para tratamento estatístico descritivo simples. Obteve-se como principais diagnósticos de enfermagem: risco de integridade da pele, memória prejudicada e dentição prejudicada. Concluiu-se que o mapeamento realizado mostrou-se em concordância com a taxonomia diagnóstica, auxiliou na construção de um instrumento padrão e validou a necessidade do uso dessa tecnologia como um sistema padrão de linguagem.
Objective: to describe the theoretical construction process of nursing process support documents in COVID-19 care scenarios. Methods: an experience report of the joint activity of the Brazilian Nursing Process Research Network (Rede de Pesquisa em Processo de Enfermagem) composed of Higher Education and Health Institution researchers in Brazil. Results: five instruments were organized collectively, involving the elements of nursing practice (nursing diagnoses, outcomes and interventions) in assistance for community; for patients (with suspected or mild, moderate, and critical COVID-19 and residents in Nursing Homes); for nursing workers’ health support, also subsidizing registration and documentation during the COVID-19 pandemic. Final considerations: valuing the phenomena manifested by families/communities, patients and health professionals is essential for early detection, intervention, and prevention of diseases.
Objectives: to model the process of promoting healthy aging from the conceptual analysis proposed by Walker and Avant and Nola Pender’s Health Promotion Model. Methods: this is a descriptive and theoretical study, with a qualitative approach. Elements resulting from conceptual analysis were used to model a healthy aging promotion process based on Nola Pender’s Health Promotion Model. Results: in conceptual analysis, seven antecedents, seven attributes and three consequences of the concept of healthy aging were identified. Final Considerations: the proposed Health Promotion Model represents a structure that in an instrumental way can guide the nursing process application in gerontological clinical practice. This can guide nurses in identifying diagnoses, establishing outcomes and implementing interventions aimed at promoting the elderly’s health.
To analyze the concept of healthy aging and propose the development of a nursing diagnosis
Concept analysis using the method proposed by Walker and Avant
Four bibliographic databases were searched, and 36 articles were included in the analysis. Seven antecedents, seven attributes, and three consequences for “healthy aging” were identified.
The concept analysis supported the development of the new nursing diagnosis “readiness for enhanced healthy aging,” which can assist nurses in implementing actions aimed at promoting the health of older adults.
IMPLICATION FOR NURSING PRACTICE
The establishment of a nursing diagnosis may provide nurses the opportunity to implement interventions that promote the maintenance of functional and cognitive capacity, psychological and spiritual well‐being, and social engagement, aiming at healthy aging with high quality of life.
This paper presents the implementation of the low voltage ride-through (LVRT) curve in two commercial numerical relays, assessing the features and limitations of each protection device. The LVRT curve is defined in grid codes of several countries, especially those who already have or are planning a high share of wind power in their electric power systems. The functionality of the wind turbine grid protection system is tested in a power system using the PSCAD/EMTDC simulation tool. The fault ride through capability curve applied in the test system is as defined in the Brazilian grid code and the protection system responses evaluated at the point of common coupling of the wind power plant when the power network is under symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults. The biggest challenge to adhere the system operator requirements is to ensure the highest conformity to the defined LVRT curve, because most relays only gives you the option of tuning in discrete time intervals.
Foram determinados os atributos definidores e identificados seus antecedentes e consequentes. Foram propostos casos e estabelecidas as referências empíricas. CONCLUSÕES: Os resultados proporcionaram evidências e instrumentalização das referências empíricas, o que pode auxiliar na acurácia do diagnóstico de enfermagem. IMPLICAÇÕES PARA A PRÁTICA DE ENFERMAGEM: Esta clarificação poderá contribuir para o retorno do paciente às atividades diárias em um tempo mais curto e promoção da segurança cirúrgica.
