Family Visitation During Phase 1 Recovery

Moffitt utilizes a family-centered care nursing model. Traditionally, families were not allowed to visit patients during Phase 1 recovery. This practice contributed to anxiety and dissatisfied family members as evidence by anecdotal feedback and survey results which prompted implementation of a process change. PACU nurses questioned family visitation during Phase 1 because of space limitations, privacy, concerns about confidentiality, and liability risks. After a systematic literature review, evidence showed decreased family anxiety with visitation.

CONCLUSIONS: This is the largest cohort reported in the literature of patients with frostbite injuries treated with HBOT. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may show positive impact on the demarcation level of frostbite and, despite the common side effects, it generally causes no long-term sequelae.

The basic science underlying biological psychiatry came first from animal models. For example, rodent studies established the pathways through which early-life experience and stress impact brain systems involved in anxiety and depression (1). With the advent of modern neuroimaging it became possible to study these systems as they function in healthy humans and in those with psychiatric disorders (2).

Anxiety disorders, the most prevalent class of pediatric mental disorders, are viewed as conditions of abnormal threat processing. The circuitry engaged by threats in a range of mammalian species encompasses the amygdala and its connections to the ventral prefrontal cortex, insula, and hippocampus. Thus, this circuitry can be targeted in translational research. Cross-species translational research is crucial for psychiatry given the inaccessibility of the human brain to many research techniques.

Stress and emotional tension tends to be associated with distress – but a form called ‘eustress’ can be healthy and productiveStress has become a defining feature of the 21st century, contributing to the mental-health crisis, fuelling a boom in mindfulness apps and even, science has suggested, affecting unborn children. But it is not always the villain it is made out to be. Psychologists are keen to arm us with the knowledge that some stress can be good, healthy and productive. This type is known as “eustress” and without it, they say, our lives would be dull and meaningless.“Stress has ...

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Aleksandra Lecei, Ruud van WinkelAbstractChildhood adversity increases the risk of developing psychiatric symptoms later in life. However, the neurobiological mechanisms underlying this association are unknown. This paper reviews the current literature regarding structural and functional alterations in the hippocampus and amygdala following childhood adversity, ultimately converging into a model that proposes impaired ‘pattern separation’ as an important underlying mechanism associated with risk or resil...
