ConclusionsPsychotropic use and polypharmacy were commonplace for older adults with ID. Psychotropic use, particularly the use of psychotropic combinations, needs to be regularly reviewed for safety, efficacy and adverse effects, and rationale for use of multiple agents needs to be clear and documented.
From frozen-pea pillows to sleeping in the garden, hundreds of people have been offering suggestions online about how to sleep in the heatwave. But does anything actually work?
Hey everyone, when I took the MCAT I wasn't able to get enough sleep because I was so anxious that I just tossed and turned the night before. Was hoping to not have a repeat of that for Step as it is a long, more mentally consuming test. I am planning to not sleep at all two nights before step, exercise the whole of next day and pass out with some 1st gen antihistamines the evening before. Has anyone else tried something similar and would like to share?
Conclusions Between 7 and 8 hours of sleep and fair/poor sleep quality were associated with optimal A1C levels, while sleeping for fewer or more hours appeared to increase dysglycemia, without adjustment for covariates. These relationships were attenuated following multivariable adjustment. Future research is necessary to refine our understanding of the sleep/glycemic-control relationship to provide a context for the clinical significance of these findings for longer-term A1C control in adults with diabetes.
In the ancient Roman literary masterpiece Metamorphoses, the poet Ovid writes that the god of sleep, Somnus (who had a twin brother named Thanatos, or Death), lived in a dark cave and "in front of the cave mouth a wealth of poppies flourish" . This verse demonstrates that our ancestors recognised links between sleep, death and the poppy plant (from which opium is derived). Present-day population-based studies show that opioid drugs are used frequently [2, 3] and in other potentially concerning ways  among individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including those with nonpalliative disea...
In patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), nighttime and early-morning symptoms are associated with an increased rate of exacerbation, hospital admission and reduced survival [1, 2]. Furthermore, patients with COPD frequently have poor sleep quality  and reduced physical activity [4, 5]. We hypothesised that nighttime airflow obstruction in patients with COPD is associated with impaired sleep quality, leading to early-morning symptoms and reduced physical activity.
ConclusionMuslim children with a mean age of nine years reported longer screen exposure, earlier bedtimes and longer sleep duration, but more sleep disturbances, than Jewish children. Cultural sleep practices may contribute to the differences in sleep patterns and sleep disturbances of Jewish and Muslim children in Israel.This article is protected by copyright.
