Authors: Momeni M, Arab M, Dehghan M, Ahmadinejad M Abstract Materials and Methods: This randomized, parallel, single-blind controlled trial study was performed on 75 ICU patients. Patients were allocated into three groups (massage by a nurse, massage by the patient's family, and control group) by the minimization method.

Abstract Conventional antidepressants typically require weeks of daily dosing to achieve full antidepressant response in antidepressant responders. A newly evolving group of compounds can engender more rapid response times in depressed patients. These drugs include the newly approved antidepressant (S)-ketamine (esketamine, Spravato). A seminal study by Furey and Drevets in 2006 showed antidepressant response in patients after only a few doses with the antimuscarinic drug scopolamine. Several clinical reports have generally confirmed scopolamine as a rapid-acting antidepressant. The data with scopolamine are consi...

For example, should we be focussing on early childhood interventions which target the child's emotional environment and parenting to encourage emotional exp...
