Bridging the Stressful Gap Between ICU and Home: Medical Simulation for Pediatric Patients and Their Families*

Conclusions: In accordance with new care models and patient need, critical care requires parallel evolution of care practices, including new educational and care models, in order to maximally reduce risk, fear, and anxiety and to insure quality and consistent care in the community for patients and families transitioning between the ICU and home environments.

The relationship between obesity and mood disorders is bidirectional. We assessed whether a Hericium erinaceus treatment improved depression, anxiety, sleep, and binge eating disorders after 8 weeks of supplementation in subjects affected by overweight or obesity under a low calorie diet regimen. Looking for a possible clinical biomarker, we assessed the seru...

I'm a PGY-3 who has been getting a lot of postpartum patients recently whose ob/gyn placed them on disability for postpartum depression or anxiety, and then they come to me asking for their disability to be extended. Some of them have therapists, but apparently only an MD can extend disability. I have very mixed feelings about this, specifically because while I don't think maternity leave in this country is long enough, and some of them are quite symptomatic, I don't think that not going to...

Publication date: 1 September 2019Source: Personality and Individual Differences, Volume 147Author(s): Nicole Barbaro, Brian B. Boutwell, Todd K. ShackelfordAbstractAdult attachment anxiety shows consistent and robust associations with intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration and IPV victimization. Prior research, however, has not investigated whether this association would be robust to genetic covariation between the traits of interest. We expand the limited research regarding genetic influences on IPV by examining the extent to which accounting for potential genetic covariation between IPV and attachment anxiety can ...

This study investigated what types of classroom anxiety were related to student performance in the course and persistence in the major. Students in introductory biology classes self-reported their general class, test, communication, and social anxiety; perceived course difficulty; intention to stay in the major; and demographic variables. Final course grades were acquired from instructors. An increase in perception of course difficulty from the beginning to the end of the semester was significantly associated with lower final course grades (N = 337), particularly for females, non-Caucasians, and students who took fewer Adv...

Authors: Seritan AL, Rienas C, Duong T, Delucchi K, Ostrem JL Abstract OBJECTIVE: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a quintessential neuropsychiatric condition in which anxiety and depressive symptoms are common and may precede motor manifestations. The authors explored the ages at onset of anxiety and depressive disorders among patients with PD evaluated by psychiatrists at a deep brain stimulation center. METHODS: Psychiatric diagnoses and ages at onset were collected via clinical interviews. The ages at PD diagnosis were ascertained by chart review. Onset ages for anxiety and depressive disorders (overall and for ...

CONCLUSIONS: Benzodiazepine monotherapy is utilized in nearly 1 in 10 patients treated for depression. Adults aged 45 to 65 years, patients prescribed opioids, patients seen by primary care providers, and those with underlying anxiety, epilepsy, or pulmonary disorders are at highest risk.

Publication date: Available online 23 May 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Lea Boecker, Paul PauliAbstractStartle reflex potentiation versus startle attenuation to unpleasant versus pleasant stimuli likely reflect priming of the defensive versus appetitive motivational systems, respectively. This review summarizes and systemizes the literature on affective startle modulation related to psychopathologies with the aim to reveal underlying mechanisms across psychopathologies. We found evidence for psychopathologies characterized by increased startle potentiation to unpleasant stimuli (anxiety diso...

This study investigated the long-term consequences of post-weaning social isolation on behavior, VGF/BDNF/TrkB pathway and two isoforms of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in the hippocampus and examined whether these effects were sex-specific. Male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were reared either in social isolation or social groups from postnatal day 21 for 9 weeks (n = 12–15/group and sex). Post-weaning social isolation induced impairments in sensorimotor gating and increased anxiety-like behavior in rats of both sexes. These behavioral alterations were accompanied by attenuated gene expression of VGF and TrkB rec...
