Abstract


During 2005 and 2006, as part of the social responsibility of an institution of higher education to guide the processes of taking of decisions within the trade associations and the general system of social safety in health, a descriptive study on cardiovascular risks and level of physical activity in merchants of an urban sector of the municipality of Pereira was carried out. This study was started by doing an epidemiologic profile of the city, which reported for 2004, 101.6 dead men and 82.8 dead women per 100.000 inhabitants, secondary to cardiocerebrocirculatory problems, and according to a study that on physical activity was done in the city in 2002, which defined the population as sedentary. The research was carried out with the program of Respiratory Therapy, through visits to 174 tradesmen from 193 business locations inscribed in the Chamber of Commerce of the city, to whom 2 instruments were applied that were previously tested in the city: the CARDIOVASCULAR RISK IN WORKER POPULATION and the INTERNATIONAL QUESTIONNAIRE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IPAC 2000, prepared by Agita Sao Paulo . It was seen in the tradesmen that they are a population with low academic formation; mostly younger than 40 years old, with little physical activity, 1 out of 3 of them were exposed to cigarette. This population has a low average of consults to the system of health, in spite of having high indexes of corporal mass and familiar precedents of death and illness by cardiovascular pathologies. There is a proposal to implement a program of cardiovascular health with the participation of the system of social safety in health, other institutions of higher education and the programs of health, marketing, publicity and graphic design of the institution. This proposal would be submitted to the governmental entities and to the associations of tradesmen, such as FENALCO, CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, ANDI of Pereira, to guarantee the execution and participation of the associates.
