The latter are, therefore, the preferred option for treating CVI The workplace can be a significant cause of deaths, diseases and incapacity for a considerable number of workers 12 related to risks inherent to working environment 3. In Brazil, CVI is the edemma most common cause of worker absenteeism 6. Nevertheless, the fact that edema was detected must not be ignored. While they undoubtedly spend the majority of their work shifts in a static and unfavorable position as they ride, they do not suffer overload on the buttocks or compression of the thighs and popliteal surface edemma do those who work sitting in chairs Sitting down demands lower energy expenditure and therefore takes less effort 1.

The total volume of water displaced was recorded. Just 16 of these people met the inclusion criteria defined for the study, which were: Subjects with serious eedema disease or diseases of the skin or nails of the foot or if they did not comply with the protocol were excluded from study. Knowledge of the risks makes preventive guidance possible The objective of this study is to investigate the occurrence of PE among traffic control agents who work in one of two postures — sitting or standing — in order to provide a basis for the development of preventative measures tailored to this population.

Back Links pages that link to this page. Assessment measures Subjects underwent volumetric assessment by water displacement at two points in time per day, the first before starting a work shift and the second immediately after coming off the same shift. The results for this variable can be seen in Table 3.

During their working day, traffic control agents are exposed to several other risk factors, including poorly paved and maintained streets and sidewalks, exposure to varying degrees of natural illumination and urban noise, in addition to the weather with its extremes of temperature and wind 12 This explains the lower frequency of PE when compared to the group who work standing up.

Compression stocking reduce occupational leg swelling. July 27, ; Accepted: The remaining liquid above the last full ml was removed and placed in a ml measuring cylinder and the volume was read off in milliliters. There was a problem providing the content you requested Related Topics in Examination. Each worker was assessed before and after their working shift for three consecutive days. Graduated elastic compression stockings GECS offer both a method for prevention and treatment to contain edema in the legs, by exerting the ideal pressure on veins in the region, thereby aiding venous return to the heart 6 — 8.

This in turn can involve a risk of thrombi forming in the deep and superficial venous systems Comparison of reduction of edema after rest and after muscle exercises in treatment of chronic venous insufficiency. This finding might explain the presence of postural edema in the SD group in the present study. Ortostattico inthis collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters. While PE can also affect healthy individuals, it is considered a primary indicator of functional decompensation of the venous system, which can lead to the emergence of chronic venous insufficiency CVI of the LE.

Constant exposure to heat can have a direct influence on peripheral liquid accumulation and can help to cause PE, because high temperatures provoke vasodilation of capillaries and increase their permeability, since, in contrast to plasma volume, which is controlled by arterial baroreceptors and ortostatido receptors in low pressure territories, edema is aggravated by an imbalance between hydrostatic pressure and colloid osmotic pressure, to the ortlstatico that they have a direct impact on whether there is more or less liquid in the LE Therefore, PE combined with remaining in fixed positions for long times while working should be considered as an aggravating physiological factor in circulatory complications.

Investigation of postural edema in the lower extremities of traffic control workers Investigation of postural edema in the lower extremities of traffic control workers.

Patients should address specific medical concerns with their physicians. There are no conflicts of interests related to the study and no financial support was received. The research protocol number FT was submitted to and approved by the local Research Ethics Committee before any of the data edrma stages were initiated. Sociedade Brasileira de Angiologia e Cirurgia Vascular. Suffering edema as a result is just one of those factors and several other factors also have an influence on the emergence of what is the principal ortostatoco of venous diseases.

The exit was left open and excess water that flowed through it was drawn off through a cannula. Swelling due to excessive accumulation of fluid under the skin defined by a persistent indentation when pressure is applied to the swollen area. Statistical analysis Statistical analysis was conducted using the ANOVA test for parametric data and the test of equality of two proportions for nonparametric data.

Another technique that is based on the same principles as compression stockings is application of functional bandages, although they provide less pressure which means that the body is allowed a greater variation in tissue pressures and free movement is less restricted Rev Bras Cine Des Hum. In occupational settings, postural edema PE is a significant clinical condition that members of the working population can suffer if they remain standing or seated for periods longer than 4 hours.

Postural edema has insidious onset and its defining characteristic is accumulation of liquid in the lower extremities LE. When the groups were compared, the results revealed a trend for edema to be more likely in the group that worked standing up than in the group that worked sitting down. Seven people who spent more than 4 hours standing up while conducting traffic patrols on foot were allocated to the SU group.

Postural edema was also found in members of the SD group. TOP Related Posts.
