The Anxiety Level of Caregivers of Neurological Patients with Dysphagia

AbstractWe aimed to investigate anxiety level of caregivers of neurological patients with dysphagia, and the relationship of patient-related factors to anxiety level of dysphagia caregivers. A total of 103 adult neurological patients with dysphagia (study group), 30 without dysphagia (control group), and their primary caregivers were included. Types of feeding, condition of dependency in eating and drinking, dysphagia duration, and history of previous dysphagia treatment were recorded for study group. In study group, the Turkish version of the Eating Assessment Tool-10 (T-EAT-10) was used to determine dysphagia symptom severity. Penetration and aspiration severity was determined with the penetration –aspiration scale (PAS). The Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) that has two subscales including state anxiety (S-STAI) and trait anxiety (T-STAI) was used to determine anxiety level of caregivers. There was no difference between groups in terms of age, gender, weight, and height. Th e mean S-STAI was 42.56 ± 10.10 for the study group and 29.20 ± 6.64 for the control group (p

CONCLUSIONS: The inpatient treatment seems to be most effective in severe mental states and in anxiety-related disorders and least effective in personality disorders. Due to limited inpatient treatment efficacy we believe outpatients services are crucial in adolescent psychiatry. PMID: 28826267 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Back in 400 B.C., Hippocrates wrote, “Eating alone will not keep a man well. He must also exercise.” But only 20 percent of Americans get the recommended 150 minutes of strength and cardiovascular physical activity per week, and 80 million Americans are entirely inactive. A recent Time magazine cover story examined the new science of exercise and how it can be used as medicine for even the sickest patients. Time’s Mandy Oaklander writes, “If there were a drug that could do for human health everything that exercise can, it would likely be the most valuable pharmaceutical ever developed...

Most of us were admonished as children not to talk to strangers, for fear of kidnapping, or worse. Although the intention behind the directive is admirable and may seem like responsible parenting, it might set a child up for unnecessary hesitation to meet new people and perhaps even lead to social anxiety. When my son was young, my instruction to him was that he could talk to strangers only if an adult he trusted was with him. He was not permitted to go anywhere with someone he didn’t know, nor accept anything from them. I reminded him that everyone in our lives started out as a stranger and that closeness developed ...

One of the most troubling foot issues affecting athletes, and the doctors caring for them, is the navicular stress fracture. A  physician treating a patient with this unpredictable entity should be experiencing a fair amount of anxiety; if not, the physician has not treated enough of them. The report in this issue of JFAS, by Saxena et al, helps us define the indications for surgery and the anticipated results. The number s reported are likely the highest of any non–meta-analysis review. The results illustrate the significant delay in diagnosis that can accompany this entity and the effect that can have on the outcomes.

Hey guys, appreciate your time. Felt fine leaving exam but now am having crazy anxiety (unable to sleep type things) So humanism I thought was good other than I didn't always sit at the end of the encounter to present dx and plan but I did ask for any questions, if they understood, etc.... Also worried I didn't tailor my ROS specific enough to the case at times... Forgot some parts of neuro exam and MSK exam on 2 of the patients. DDx and plans I thought went well.

(Elsevier) Anxiety occurs at high rates in children with fragile X syndrome (FXS), the most common form of inherited intellectual disability. Children with co-occurring anxiety tend to fare worse, but it can be hard to identify in infants. A new study in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging reports that infants and children with FXS show bias toward threatening emotion, rather than positive emotion, a pattern highly linked with anxiety.
