Emergency room anxiety

I've recently started a job as a critical care tech at a busy trauma center which, suffice it to say, has given me a completely new perspective of medicine. I'm still new enough to everything that I get a sense of euphoria just being in the E.R. (it makes me feel like I'm on an episode of grey's anatomy sometimes lol). Despite this, I've had some serious doubts. I tend to question whether I'm suitable and capable enough to work in such a high-stress environment. I even get to the point where...

Abstract Pain control in total shoulder arthroplasty demands a multidisciplinary approach with collaboration between patients, surgeon, and anesthetist. A multimodal approach with preemptive medication, regional blockade, local anesthetics, and a combination of acetaminophen, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, tramadol, and gabapentinoids postoperatively leads to pain control and patient satisfaction.

In 2016 I found myself waiting at a Colorado doctor’s office with my 12-year-old son, hoping to qualify for a cannabis prescription for him. I had traveled a long way from mainstream medicine in ten years. As a West Point graduate, Army Medical Service Corps Junior Officer of the Year and Medical Intelligence Officer for NATO Peacekeeping Forces, none of those experiences adequately prepared me for the greatest medical challenge and controversy of our time. My toddler son had suffered a vaccine induced brain injury from the MMR vaccine in 2005. The Harvard trained physician I was meeting with had been practicing medi...

(Int J Obstet Anesth 2017;29:57–63) Chronic postsurgical pain (CPSP) has been widely studied. Its occurrence rate has been found to vary widely depending on the surgical procedure performed. Since cesarean delivery (CD) is considered the most common surgery performed worldwide, understanding CPSP in this patient population is important. In this prospective study from Scotland, the investigators sought to determine the rate of persistent pain after CD in an urban patient population consisting largely of women from a socially deprived background. Secondarily, the relationships between maternal anxiety, socioeconomic s...

Grief is ubiquitous in the experience of children and adolescents with illness but not always recognized or named, and as a result grief is not always treated effectively by child/adolescent psychiatrists or pediatricians. Grief can be misinterpreted or treated as stress, anxiety, depression, adolescent moodiness, or behavioral concerns. Pediatricians and child/adolescent psychiatrists are often insufficiently educated on the topic of grief.

AbstractAnxiety and depression are often comorbid with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). There is empirical support to suggest that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an efficacious treatment for comorbid anxiety disorders in youth with ASD. Modifications to CBT for youths with ASD have been made with emphasis on exposure being a critical component. Few studies have evaluated the efficacy of CBT on symptoms of depression in youths with ASD. Modifications to CBT will be outlined in this review, as will implementation suggestions for the clinician practicing CBT with ASD youth. Limitations of the studies investigating this ...
