This disorder can manifest itself at various times in life, with physical exercise being one of the allies in reducing and preventing symptoms. <strong>Objective:</strong> To analyze the influence of physical exercise on people with anxiety, identifying the existing relationships between them. <strong>Method:</strong> The method used was of a qualitative nature, being an integrative descriptive review. Scientific articles were selected using descriptors in the Scielo, Medline, Lilacs and Pubmed databases. <strong>Results:</strong> Four articles were selected. They used similar methods to obtain the results of their studies, modifying the instruments of tests, tooth, ergometric, anamnesis and interviews. The studies found subjected people to physical exercises between 1 and 12 weeks. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> It was identified that biopsychosocial interactions cannot be dissociated, and physical exercise is an enhancer in improving anxiety disorder, having anxiolytic effects, improving well-being and quality of life. Individuals subject to hypoxia are more likely to have anxiety disorder. The efficiency of recreational sport for reducing anxiety was noted, but in competitive sports, pre-competitive effects may occur, demonstrating the relevance of the mental health professional.</p> Gabriel de Carvalho Marques, Mírian Reijane da Silva Alves, Vinicius de Almeida Matos, Thyana Cordeiro Lopes, Gustavo Marques Porto Cardoso, Marcelle Esteves Reis Ferreira Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Multiprofessional Health Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/6 Thu, 14 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0300 COVID-19 and the act of making science https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/14 <p>In the last year, we have been embraced by the emergence of a new disease that has generated profound impacts on societies globally. Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 presents itself as a pathology supported by the triggering of an inflammatory cascade with release of cytokines and inflammatory substances in plasma [1]. Therefore, several attempts to circumvent the emergence of these changes have been appearing in the scientific environment.</p> <p>The exploration of drugs that would be potentially effective in combating COVID-19 was a strategy actively implemented by scientists. However, no antiviral has, in fact, been proven to be specific in the control of changes caused by COVID-19 so far [2]. Some researchers believe that, as the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome caused by coronavirus related to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the result of the inflammatory response, the release of inflammatory mediators could be modulated by some nutritional substrates or immunonutrition [3,4].</p> <p>The greatest hope currently lies in vaccines. The global effort to create immunizers against COVID-19 is unprecedented in terms of scale and speed. This represented an important change about the traditional path of vaccine development [5].</p> <p>The pandemic of SARS-CoV-2 infection has made more evident how dynamic science is and how it is constantly challenged to respond to the needs of modern society. In addition, it was also able to reveal how much the production of scientific knowledge still lacks structure, financing, partnerships, and skilled labor around the world.</p> <p>It is to foster science and support researchers that the Journal of Multiprofessional Health Research begins its second year of activities, after a brief but interesting beginning in 2020. We believe that the construction of knowledge comes from capable and innovative human minds, who dare to think beyond, create hypotheses and test their ideas. We invite you all to follow with us on this journey.</p> <p>Welcome to the new year and may we make the new happen!</p> Rodrigo Fernandes Weyll Pimentel, Magno Conceição das Merces Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Multiprofessional Health Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/14 Tue, 12 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0300 The spiritist religion and psychoactive drugs: A study of social representations https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/11 <p><strong>Introduction: </strong>The concept of health currently used is about comprehensive care, which aims not only to reach the human being regarding their diseases, but also their social and mental. Thus, the study aimed to identify the origin of the social representation of psychoactive drugs and their users for the Kardecist spiritist religious group and analyze this representation and its implications for health care. <strong>Method:</strong> This is a qualitative and quantitative study. Data were collected in the years 2018 and 2019 through semi-structured interviews. The data collection scenario included the religious temples of the Kardecist spiritists. <strong>Results:</strong> 30 subjects participated in this stage, chosen at random, who met the inclusion criteria previously established. In this section of the study, only the results regarding the participants of the spiritist religion will be presented, totaling 9 participants. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Based on the results found, it was evident that the participants of the religious Spiritist Kardecista condemn the abuse of drugs, as they reinforce that, in addition to the physical problems that this use can cause, it is also capable of bringing religious and spiritual harm, preventing the faithful to have contact with the transcendent in a particular way.</p> Diogo Jacintho Barbosa, Antonio Marcos Tosoli Gomes, Marcia Pereira Gomes Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Multiprofessional Health Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/11 Thu, 21 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0300 Syphilis cases in pregnant women in a city in Bahia: Ecological study https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/7 <p class="western" align="JUSTIFY"><span style="font-family: Georgia, serif;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Introduction</strong></span></span><span style="font-family: Georgia, serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">: Gestational syphilis is a preventable disease, through the provision of health services together with the population.

In this perspective, the national program of arterial hypertension and diabetes mellitus (HyperDia) in the health space demand of the professional nurses the development of strategies to control of these conditions in a moment of overload of the health system, considering that users registered with HyperDia are a risk group to severe forms of the Covid-19. <strong>Objective:</strong> To analyze the performance of nurses inserted in the HyperDia program and to know the main points of the nurse consultation during the pandemic. <strong>Methods:</strong> The methodology runs through qualitative, descriptive research with content analysis. This research involved four reference nurses of the HyperDia on different Units of Primary Health Care of one sanitary district on Salvador, Bahia. Results: The strategies developed for the prevention and control of users registered in the program are aimed at maintaining social distance, validation, and extension of the prescription. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The Covid-19 pandemic puts hypertensive and diabetic patients in conditions to enhance the risk factors and complications inherent to hypertension and diabetes mellitus. In this field, nurses struggle to mitigate the consequences and difficulties imposed on workers, exacerbated by the lack of personal protective equipment and testing.</p> Terezinha Andrade Almeida, Mario de Castro Guimarães Neto Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Multiprofessional Health Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/10 Thu, 28 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0300 Profile of patients in Intensive Care Unit of burns in a reference hospital https://journalmhr.com/index.php/jmhr/article/view/17 <p><strong>Introduction: </strong>Burns represent an important public health problem in Brazil, being commonly characterized as a skin lesion in its various layers resulting from various etiologies.
