Chronic Medical Conditions and Perinatal Mental Illness: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to examine the association between maternal chronic medical conditions (CMC) and perinatal mental illness. Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL, and PsycINFO were searched to September, 2017. Data were extracted and quality was assessed using standardized instruments. We generated unadjusted and adjusted pooled odds ratios (aPOR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) using DerSimonian and Laird random effects models. The review included 16 papers representing 12 studies and 1,626,260 women. CMC overall was associated with perinatal mental illness overall (aPOR = 1.43, 95% CI: 1.25, 1.63). CMC overall was associated with antenatal (aPOR = 1.41, 95% CI: 1.10, 1.81) and postnatal mental illness separately (aPOR = 1.44, 95% CI: 1.13, 1.85) and with perinatal depression (aPOR = 1.45, 95% CI: 1.25, 1.67) and anxiety separately (aPOR = 1.63, 95% CI: 1.35, 1.95). No studies examined bipolar or psychotic disorders. Diabetes (aPOR = 1.34, 95% CI: 1.07, 1.69), hypertension/heart disease (aPOR = 1.60, 95% CI: 1.05, 2.45), migraine (aPOR = 1.75, 95% CI: 1.20, 2.54), and other neurological disorders (aPOR = 1.45, 95% CI: 1.19, 1.77), but not asthma, were each associated with perinatal mental illness. Findings suggest that mental health resources should be integrated in medical settings where pregnant and postnatal women with CMC are treated. PMID: 2963...

Hello all. First time poster. Does anyone know how long it takes for the Board to respond after taking the EPPP? I know the handbook says that they are notified of your score within 10 days, but I would really like to get that confirmation email from them to verify my score. Any help in easing my anxiety would be MUCH APPRECIATED!!
Conclusions: Negative ICS beliefs are associated with higher number of oral steroid courses. The association between CAM endorsement and asthma control is varied, but mostly in favor of improved control. Financial difficulties may make CAM use more likely.

CONCLUSION: Our observational study suggests that intake of lorazepam impedes the response to rTMS. The impact of lorazepam and other BZD on rTMS should receive more attention and be further investigated in prospective, hypothesis-based treatment studies to determine causal relationships between medication treatments and outcome. This could lead to specific recommendations for pharmacological treatment for depressed patients undergoing rTMS. PMID: 32648109 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The concurrent assessment of insistence on sameness behaviour and anxiety in ASD may help in understanding current symptom profiles and anticipating future trajectories. High preschool insistence on sameness in particular may be associated with elevated current or future anxiety symptoms. PMID: 32641181 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

METHODS: About 1,363 cognitively unimpaired individuals (52.8% males) aged ≥50 years were followed for a median of 4.8 years to the outcome of incident MCI. NPS were assessed using Beck Depression an...
