As any procedure has its risks and is that you have to take into account the area of application, as well as the adverse and toxic effects that would bring its administration in inappropriate doses. In this sense, the purpose of the research is to promote an academic reflection related to the use and proper application of local anesthetics to avoid possible complications in the health of patients. To this end, a thorough bibliographic review was carried out, where 65 bibliographic documents containing scientific articles were analyzed, as well as updated literature on the subject. It was concluded that it is necessary for the health professional to have a vast knowledge about the correct use and proper application of local anesthetics to avoid unwanted effects on human health. The scientific value of the work lies in the very nature of the subject studied, since its study is an urgent challenge for health professionals, while the results offered can be a valid starting point to undertake new research to deepen and expand the knowledge related to the use and application of anesthetic agents in medical practice.</p> 2019-05-10T06:25:17+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Emotional intelligence and marital decision 2019-08-21T11:47:09+00:00 Lely Setyawati Kurniawan <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Emotional Intelligence (EI)</em> is individuals ability to recognize their self-emotions, emotions of others, motivate their self, and manage their emotions well in dealing with others.

It has considered necessary to conduct a literature review with the following objective: Determine the relationship between Behavioral Intention and Alcohol Consumption. Because of the theoretical review carried out, it was possible to identify that numerous authors highlight behavioral intention as a subjective probability in which a behavior is connected to an action. The theory postulates have closely linked to behavior, that intention is the function of two basic determinants; one of a personal nature and the other has to do with social influence. The personal factor is the positive or negative evaluation about executing a behavior, this has called "attitude. The social factor is the perception of the social pressure of each individual in order to carry out or not carry out a certain behavior, this factor has called "subjective norm. It has concluded, therefore, that the modification of behavioral intentions could be an option for the development of intervention strategies that have the purpose of preventing the consumption of alcohol.</p> 2019-06-06T04:17:54+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
