Social medicine, in deep contact with people’s suffering – Télam

Today the National Day of Social Medicine is celebrated in tribute to Dr. Ren G. Favaloro

The expression “social medicine” originated in France in 1848, and was first published in the “Gazzette Mdicale” in Paris. The reasons for its formation lie in history, in times of poverty and social aspirations in that country, and it was coined by Dr. Jules R. Gurin. In our country it has been commemorated since 2002, in which July 12 was established as the National Day of Social Medicine for the birth of Dr. Ren Favaloro, who used to say: “In every medical act, respect for the patient and the ethical and moral concepts; then science and conscience will always be on the same side, on the side of humanity “. It is a tribute to all the doctors who work in this area and who have the conviction to carry out projects that focus attention on the person and everything that determines their health.

The professional who does social and community medicine is trained to approach the health-disease process and the care of the local population from the Primary Health Care strategy, fundamentally at the first level of care, with scientific, technical, social and social criteria. ticos. Personally, social medicine brings me closer to people and their environment, it allows me to know the origin of the causes of diseases, and it has led me to delve into a deeper understanding of the suffering of the people I care for.

The holistic view of the ailments makes the care process in a protective and respectful environment, where the doctor-patient relationship is between two people of the same nature, and, above all, where the person is unique and unrepeatable. In Social Medicine, the health professional knows how to recognize the vulnerable state, of suffering, of pain, of limitations and, also, of hope of each person.

Many of the problems that people in the community we serve today rank are “social determinants of health.” The WHO mentions them as the circumstances in which people are born, grow up, live, work and age, including the health system. These circumstances are the result of social, cultural, economic, educational and political factors that influence the health status of the communities.

The pandemic brought with it social and psychological circumstances that are causing chronic stress and continuous states of anxiety, with the perception of lack of security that are affecting health with different forms of presentation. The lack of work or the low income of money, added to the precariousness of the households that depend on informal income, have important effects, such as the inability to access a healthy diet. Social distancing impedes social relationships that provide support and improve health at home, work, and in the community.

This reality makes social medicine seek to understand how social and economic conditions impact health, and requires an interdisciplinary approach in interventions and monitoring of individuals and their families.

Doing social medicine means that, on many occasions, doctors must demonstrate knowledge that exceeds healthcare to help the person and their family to face problems that are not medical but, many times, sad and difficult situations. We do it with a broad view that recognizes the biological, psychological, social, economic, cultural and spiritual condition; aspects that have a degree of influence on your current or future illnesses.


The sera of people vaccinated with Sputnik V neutralized new variants of Covid-19 – Télam

The Sputnik V vaccine is “highly protective against new variants,” according to a study by the Gamaleya Center.

Sera from the blood of people vaccinated with Sputnik V had virus neutralizing activity (VNA) against new coronavirus variants, meaning that they achieved in vitro protection, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) reported based on a study published this Monday in the international journal Vaccines.

“Sputnik V vaccination has produced protective neutralization titers against new variants, including Alpha B.1.1.7 (first identified in the UK), Beta B.1.351 (first identified in South Africa), Gamma P. 1 (identified for the first time in Brazil), Delta B.1.617.2 and B.1.617.3 (identified for the first time in India) and endemic variants of Mosc B.1.1.141 and B.1.1.317 with mutations in the receptor binding domain (RBD), “the statement said.

The work, which was published in the international journal Vaccines, was based on the evaluation of the virus neutralizing activity (VNA) of the serum of 27 people vaccinated with two doses of Spunik V against live virus and also against pseudovirus with mutations of the different variants.

The study found that the neutralizing properties of the sera of people vaccinated with Sputnik V were not reduced against the variants B.1.1.7 (UK), B.1.617.3 (one of the Indian) and local Moscow genetic lines B.1.1.141 (T385I) and B.1.1.317 (S477N, A522S) .

For the variants of concern B.1.351 (South Africa), P.1 (Brazil) and B.1.617.2 (another one from India), although the sera had neutralizing activity, this was 3.1, 2.8 and 2, 5 times lower respectively than against the reference virus.

“In particular, this decrease is less than that reported in publications for other vaccines“said the work and indicated that” a direct comparative study is necessary for a final conclusion “and that” the decrease in the neutralization effect is a cause for concern and requires more surveillance and epidemiological studies. “

In this context, the RDIF statement indicated that the Gamaleya Center – developer of Sputnik V– is actively studying the response of sera from vaccinated people and the efficacy of its vaccine emerging variants of SARS-CoV-2.

In addition, studies are underway “together with other leading producers of Covid-19 vaccines” to test combination regimens using the first component of Sputnik V.

“Our studies have shown strong results of Sputnik V against new variants of SARS-CoV-2,” he said. Alexander Gintsburg, director del Gameleya in the statement released this Monday.

In addition, he added that “more evidence was received of the ability of the coronavirus to transform and mutate around the world” and stressed that, “today, Sputnik V is one of the most effective vaccines against the original and new variants of the coronavirus thanks to their unique approach of using two different adenoviral vectors as the delivery mechanism. “

For his part, Kirill Dmitriev, executive director of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), recalled that “Sputnik V pioneered the two-shot cocktail cocktail approach.”

“The tests carried out by the Gamaleya Center have demonstrated the validity of this approach, since the neutralizing activity of the virus against new strains, which are more dangerous and infectious, continues to be superior to that of many other vaccines,” he said.

Sputnik V is based on a platform of human adenoviral vectors, which are genetically modified common influenza viruses that cannot reproduce in the human body.

When the Sputnik V vaccine is used, the coronavirus itself does not enter the body since the vaccine only contains genetic information about part of its outer protein layer, the “spike” or spcula.

“This completely eliminates the possibility of becoming infected as a result of vaccination and, at the same time, elicits the body’s stable immune response,” explained its developers.

The Russian vaccine has been registered in 67 countries worldwide with a total population of more than 3.5 billion people.

Studies showed that the vaccine managed to reduce the likelihood of symptomatic disease by 91% and close to 100% in severe forms, hospitalization and mortality.

Real-world data obtained during population vaccination in various countries, including Mexico, Argentina, Serbia, Bahrin, Hungary, San Marino, United Arab Emirates, and others, demonstrate that Sputnik V is one of the “safest and most effective vaccines. against coronavirus “.

On the National Day of Social Medicine, commemorating the birth of Dr. Ren Favaloro, professionals who practice and study this specialty spoke with Tlam to understand its importance, meet its references throughout history, and reflect on its potential in a pandemic.

The National Day of Social Medicine was promoted from Law 25,598 of 2002.

Before achieving international prestige in cardiovascular medicine and creating the Foundation and the University that bears his name, Favaloro practiced rural medicine for 12 years in Jacinto Arauz, a town in the province of La Pampa, a legacy that he transmitted to future generations. professionals.

A social look for graduates

Raquel Vzquez, Clinical physician graduated from the first promotion of the Favaloro University in 1998 and today a teacher at the same institution, she is in charge of coordinating the mandatory final practice of the last year of the Medicine career, which they call “rural rotation” .

Ren Favaloro was the creator of this practice and his objective, Raquel tells Tlam, “was for graduates to incorporate a social perspective and return to society the knowledge acquired to educate and prevent diseases.”

(FI) Among the fundamental legacies of Ren Favaloro is the personal, humane and respectful treatment of people, always based on scientific rigor and putting himself on the side of the patient to help him in whatever he needs. (FI)

Social medicine “has to do with activities for the primary prevention of diseases and timely care,” the doctor explained to Tlam. And he added that it is linked to rural areas “because there are places very far from urban centers, where people do not reach the hospital due to lack of economic resources or mobility.”

On July 12, the Day of Social Medicine is celebrated.

On July 12, the Day of Social Medicine is celebrated.

In 1998, as a student, Raquel carried out the first rural rotation internship at the Favaloro University and traveled to the city of Orn, in the province of Salta, where she spent two months in a hospital that carried out campaigns to visit very remote places.

In this experience, Raquel slept in schools and visited small towns where medication did not arrive and there were no pharmacies.

“Everything had to be carried, controlled pregnant women, newborns and vaccinated”, cont.

Among the fundamental legacies that Favaloro transmitted to her and that she in turn transmits to her students is personal, humane and respectful treatment of people, always based on scientific rigor and putting herself on the side of the patient to help him in whatever he needs. .

The residents

Camila Abud (28) is a second-year resident of Cardiology at the Favaloro Foundation and did the rural rotation practice three years ago. In his case, he traveled to Fras, in the province of Santiago del Estero.

There he spent three months living in a hospital and visited different towns that did not have drinking water or electricity and “if we did not go, they had no way to get to health,” he told Tlam.

In that place, I learned “new ways of solving situations without having all the equipment that we are fortunate to have in Favaloro.”

“We meet very different realities -Camila recalls-: children with injuries from days ago who held it without antibiotics; and if they had an emergency like appendicitis, they didn’t have the money to pay for the transfer or the intervention. “

Camila’s promotion traveled from house to house to ascertain which was the most important health problem, detect the prevalent health diseases in each place and determine if they were related to each other.

Ráquel Vázquez is a graduate of Medicine from the Favaloro Foundation and a teacher.

Rquel Vzquez is a graduate of Medicine from the Favaloro Foundation and a teacher.

She also gave classes in sex education and first aid, in which at the end they collected anonymous questions on small pieces of paper.

“The things that emerged were strong,” says the resident, “girls who asked if it was normal to have family relationships, and there it was necessary to detect if there were cases of rape in a context of high rate of adolescent pregnancy due to intrafamily abuse.”

Radio was another ally to promote prevention.

“We talked about health problems in a program and people called and asked questions on the air”, Camila completes, while highlighting the importance of practice because “knowing this makes you different, it makes you aware”.

“One of the legacies my teachers left me – Camila affirms – is never to take for granted what the patient understands and to explain everything.”

With the pandemic, the rural rotation practice of the Favaloro University in the provinces was suspended, but the practice was readapted as volunteers within the hospital with the more advanced students, who collaborate with a nurse and in different specialties.

Another student, Carla Settepassi (28), is studying the last of the medical degree, participates in the volunteer work and tells Tlam: “We check the vital signs of hospitalized patients, we generate links, they know that someone on volunteer service always goes to talk to them, they tell us about their life It is another relationship that is formed with the patient by spending more time in the hospital and doing those basic things. “

“From what they tell me, if I see that something is relevant to the case, I will transmit it to the staff doctors or the nurse if it is something they can help at the moment, for example, headache, anguish. Each patient it has a different story, “completes the student.

For its part, Micaela Nastasi (32), another volunteer from the last year of the degree, says that “from the beginning they convey to us the importance of respect, knocking on the door, and when one checks the patient respect the integrity of the other” and that “in volunteering the nurses they thank us all the time and we actually thank them. “

At the end, they stressed to Tlam the importance of the biopsychosocial paradigm that has been approached from the first year of career and that the University has been promoting for two years the application of the gender perspective, through an observatory, training, diploma and the review of all the programs of the careers of the Faculty of Medical Sciences.


Rodríguez Larreta wants to advance with the construction of luxury towers on the Costanera Sur – Télam

The project covers an area of ​​71 hectares that belongs to the IRSA company.

In the midst of the controversy over the sale of the Costa Salguero, the Portego Government resumed the project to enable a new neighborhood on the Costanera Sur that replicates the urban model of the luxury buildings of Puerto Madero, which received criticism from environmentalists and opposition leaders who warned of a “real estate business“on public riverside lands.

The proposal of the port administration covers a property of 71 hectares that belongs to the company IRSA, the investment company in real estate and shopping mall development, which plans to build there a conglomerate of buildings that will contain homes, offices and commercial premises and that could accommodate about 15,000 people.

The venture is not new since the project, known as “Plots of Santa Mara“, dates from 2010, when the company that presides Eduardo Elsztain signed the first of six agreements with the City Government to achieve a change in the permitted uses of the land and move forward with his endeavor, which initially included 50-story towers and a jetty.

However, for more than a decade, real estate development did not achieve the endorsement of the Legislature, where over the years the ruling party led to the then head of government Mauricio Macri was unable to collect the votes necessary to modify the current regulations on the land in the Costanera Sur.

The property extends in front of Puerto Madero, south of the Ecological Reserve and next to the popular neighborhood Rodrigo Bueno, and was owned by the national State until in the 1960s it was donated to the Boca Juniors club in order to make a Sports City with a mega-stadium and auxiliary fields, and with the prohibition of later being sold to private.

However, the prohibition was without effect some time later and in 2007 these lands were acquired by IRSA for 50 million dollars, after which it sought – unsuccessfully – to change the urban permits in force since until that moment in the space only activities were allowed sports

In a new attempt, the head of government carried Horacio Rodrguez Larreta signed an agreement to send this week to the Legislature, to grant the change of uses of the land to enable the conglomerate of buildings of up to 30 stories high in front of the Río de la Plata and, as a consideration, the company cede to the City 47 of the 71 hectares to be make a green park.

“It will be the natural link between the southern zone and Puerto Madero, generating continuity in the urban fabric in an area of ​​the city that needs it,” said Elsztain about his next venture, which he renamed “Costa Urbana.”

The environmental lawyer Enrique Viale He said, in statements to Tlam, that “these are lands that were ceded by the Nation for a social purpose and, as that was truncated, (the property) ended up being bought by crumbs by the IRSA group, which is now going to do a business billions of dollars of real estate without seeing that it is land that was public. “

“We are not very clear about what this new agreement is about, but the previous projects all had a negative impact on the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve in relation to what such a construction of buildings means, the shadow cone and the possible contamination, “he warned.

Mara Eva Koutsovitis, civil engineer and coordinator of the Chair of Community Engineering of the UBA, recalled that “the donation and subsequent transfer of these lands was not made to develop a sumptuous real estate complex” and then warned that “if the use was changed, authorizing a new residential and commercial neighborhood, the value of the property will increase exponentially “.

For its part, Jonatan Baldiviezo, from the Observatory of the Right to the City, told Tlam that with the “Costa Urbana” project “public land is going to be lost” and “a new Puerto Madero is going to be born, a neighborhood that is not good for the City because it helps integration and is an area that segregates the population from the middle and popular sectors. “

“The City needs more green spaces, more biodiversity, interaction with the river, that is why it is necessary to recover that land on the Costanera Sur and prevent them from being used to build towers,” he said and assured, “although there is talk of a property that belongs to a private party, the reality is that it was public and that, due to a vicious circuit, it ends up destined for real estate speculation “.

“The City needs more green spaces, more biodiversity, interaction with the river, that is why we must recover that land on the Costanera Sur and prevent them from being used to build towers”

Judicial protection

The urban development of that area of ​​the Costanera Sur is part of a general plan of the porteo government to “promote public and private investment” in “strategic places and large parcels“of the City, among which are also the riverside lands that correspond to the complexes of Costa Salguero and Punta Carrasco.

On that polygon, located in front of one of the headwaters of the metropolitan airport, the City promoted the sale through a law passed in the Legislature in December 2019, which was stopped by a Judicial protection understanding that the legislative process prior to approval did not comply with the constitutional mandates.

Despite this, the port management advanced with the project on the Costanera Norte and sent a second law to Parliament to change the zoning of the space in order to make possible buildings there, which received a first approval with the votes of the official block of Vamos Juntos and the allies of the UCR-Evolucin and the Socialist Party.

The initiative to the construction of luxury apartments was rejected by legislators from the opposition arch and also by civil society, environmental and social organizations, which came together to launch a popular initiative that seeks to repeal the land sale law and proposes, instead, that it become a large green park with unrestricted access.

Regarding that proposal, the legislator carried Javier Andrade I advanced that “from the Front of All we are not going to accompany these proposals, we do not want closed neighborhoods or deepen an unequal City in what continues to consolidate Together for Change as the electoral project of the large real estate developers.

In this sense, he denounced “an agreement between Elisa Carri to return with this project that the Barrio Nutico insisted so much” in relation to the change of position of the Civic Coalition bloc that, since 2010, had opposed the accompaniment in the Legislature of the IRSA undertaking to the point of submitting a request for reports to the Executive on the subject.

The legislator of the Left Front Amanda Martn, for his part, he warned about “progress in the Costanera Sur, with IRSA hand in hand, and with the support of Carri to build a Puerto Madero 2, which will be luxury constructions that later go to real estate speculation when the population of the City of Buenos Aires is being expelled. “

The legislator of the FdT Matas Barroetavea joined the critics in arguing that the initiative of the porting government “shows, once again, the appropriation plan that Larreta has for the benefit of private developers”, and finally added, in a criticism directed at the head of the Civic Coalition : “What I cannot understand is that Carri is the one who fulfills the role of the Legislature.”

The project also establishes that in the case of fuel made from sugar cane, the volumes must be 6% of the minimum mandatory mixture, and the same percentage for corn-based bioethanol.

The initiative seeks to replace the regime that has been in force in the country for fifteen years, which expired last May and was temporarily extended by the Executive Power.

One of the outstanding data related to the issue was that last November the Senate approved a bill that extends the previous rule for four years.

The initiative was then turned over to Deputies, where it did not advance and in its place the new regime was presented that obtained sanction last week.

Representing the opposition, Senator Alfredo De Angeli (Together for the Change-Between Ros) I regret that there has not been a broader debate on this proposal, while his block pair, the legislator for Cordoba Laura Rodríguez Machado, described the project as “anti-federal, anti-environmental and anti-employment”.

In this week’s session, the Senate also seek to approve projects on Monotax and Personal Assets, which also already has the endorsement of the lower house.

The reform of the Monotax Law will eliminate the retroactive tax and the contributors will not have to face any debt for the difference between what they paid between January and June and the new values ​​established by law 27,618.

“The idea is that those who went to the general regime can return to the monotax regime. A moratorium is also established with forgiveness of fines and interest. It is a sixty installment plan and whose maximum interest rate will be 1.5% per month “, said the official.

Regarding the project on Personal Assets, Ruiz stressed that “all the interest generated in pesos for fixed terms and other instruments, such as UVA fixed terms, do not pay Income Tax.”

The psychological consequences and “mental cloud” affect the return to physical activity – Télam

For Villalba, patients who had mild covid do not have major difficulties in returning to physical activity.

Returning to training, both professionally and amateurishly, after having suffered coronavirus, involves, in addition to the physical, the psychological consequences, stress and isolation suffered by the patient, especially in moderate cases that required hospitalization.

Daro Villalba, a kinesologist who runs a rehabilitation center for patients who had Covid-19, told Tlam that “beyond the physical, other sequelae can also condition the return to training, such as the psychological, the stress and the level of isolation they have had. “

“How this can impact on the physical level after discharge especially in patients who required hospitalization is something that must be taken into account together with the called ‘mental cloud’ that is, if the cognitive environment such as memory was affected“, Villalba details.

The professional explained that there are two sequelae left by the covid and that they are subjective “because there is no medical study that determines it.

Mention in this regard “loss of muscle strength and endurance, resulting in fatigue and lung involvement, which has to do with the lack of oxygenation in the blood “.

For Villalba, patients who had mild covid do not have major difficulties in returning to physical activity, although they must make a gradual return, but he remarked that in moderate or severe cases “there is no general prescription on the period of return.”

And he added that while “there is no scientific evidence to indicate that those who engaged in physical activity are less likely to become infected, personal experience tells me that most of the patients were sedentary or had some comorbidity such as diabetes.”

The kinesiologist specifies that if physical activity is restarted and dyspnea suffers, “studies must be carried out to evaluate if it has any sequelae at the lung or cardiac level, although there may be dyspnea without any pulmonary or cardiac affectation, since it is a subjective assessment of the person “.

Villalba stressed that in the case of the other subjective factor such as fatigue, which is the main sequel described by people, you have to graduate the activity.

“Those who report fatigue get up well and feel that their day is over at 16 or 18. Muscle strength is fine but they feel weak as if it were 22 or 24 hours. As this sensation cannot be measured, there is no correlated with a study, many people believe that it is real “, assured the professional.
