Publication date: Available online 15 October 2019Source: Respiratory Physiology &NeurobiologyAuthor(s): Yvonne A. Dzal, Ryan J. Sprenger, William K. MilsomAbstractIn rodents, the ventilatory responses to hypoxia (low O2) and hypercarbia (high CO2) change significantly over postnatal development. In hypoxia, most adult rodents increase ventilation and decrease metabolism to some degree. Hypercarbia, however, leads to an increase in ventilation with little, to no change in metabolism. Neonates, on the other hand, respond to hypoxia with a profound metabolic depression, and a severely attenuated ventilatory response. In ...

Methods: Administrative claims data from the IBM Watson Health MarketScan® Databases (2010-2016) were used. Women with live births (index date = delivery date) were identified and linked to their newborns. The mother-child pairs were divided into PPD and non-PPD exposure cohorts based on claims for depression, mood or adjustment disorders, or anxiety identified in t...

Postpartum depression (PPD) affects10% to 20% of women within the first year after birth and 25% beyond the first year. PPD, despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, remains underdiagnosed and misunderstood. Women do not always display signs of PPD while in care for delivery of the infant and may not discuss mood changes to their primary care provider at discharge and first post-delivery appointment. Identifying screening and treatment options for non –mental health providers was the purpose of this article.

CONCLUSION: Indigenous women are at increased risk of mental health problems during the perinatal period, particularly depression, anxiety, and substance misuse. However, resiliency among Indigenous women, cultural teachings, and methodological issues may be affecting estimates. Future research should utilize more representative samples, adapt and validate diagnostic and symptom measures for Indigenous groups, and engage Indigenous actors, leaders, and related allies to help improve the accuracy of estimates, as well as the well-being of Indigenous mothers, their families, and future generations.
