Should We Treat Electroencephalographic Discharges in the Clinic or in the Intensive Care Unit, and if So When and How?

The important question that often emerges in the clinic is how aggressive the therapy for nonconvulsive status epilepticus and electrical status epilepticus in sleep ought to be and how continuous the discharges in each of these 2 entities should be before therapy is aimed at them. Additionally, as the use of electroencephalographic monitoring continues to expand to include the clinic and intensive care unit populations, it is important to identify epileptiform patterns that warrant identification and treatment.

The scale of the COVID-19 and its impact on our lives is unprecedented. When humanity gets past this, the world will be a very different place than the one we have known.

While most of us are experiencing our very first pandemic, we are simultaneously living in an ongoing “infodemic”. The latter refers to the widespread misinformation circulating on the web around the novel coronavirus, especially on social media. We saw the likes of reports claiming the COVID-19 being part of a biological weapons program (debunked, as the natural origins of the virus have been proven) or even more, let’s say, creative ones suggesting 5G networks cause the infection (it goes without saying that there’s no relation whatsoever). Despite those misconceptions and hoax stories, there a...

Conclusions: Older adults who begin using cannabis are likely using for what they perceive to be medicinal purposes for a range of issues. However, they receive minimal guidance from their family physicians and instead obtain information from non-clinician sources.Clinical implications: Cannabis screening should be included in geriatric assessments and medicine reconciliation. Continuing education for clinicians needs to address knowledge gaps about cannabis use among older adults. PMID: 32223535 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
