ConclusionFor the PWE included in this study, the incidence of comorbid anxiety and depression in PWE was similar for men and women, but the moderating factors affecting comorbid anxiety and depressive disorders differed between genders: male PWE were more likely to be affected by psychosocial factors, while female PWE were more influenced by epilepsy itself. This exploration suggests that gender-specific health care should be considered in epilepsy therapy to improve the psychiatric condition and QOL of PWE, and different treatments should be conducted for male and female PWE to prevent negative emotional comorbidities.
Authors: Liu SY, Riley RW, Yu MS Abstract Sleep surgery is part of a continuum of care for OSA that involves medical, pharmacologic, and behavioral therapy. Upper airway surgery for OSA can significantly improve stability by way of modulating the critical negative closing pressure. This is the same mechanism of action as PAP or oral appliance therapy (OAT). The updated surgical algorithm in this review adds precision in 3 areas: 1) patient selection, 2) identification of previously unaddressed anatomic phenotypes with associated treatment modality, and 3) improved techniques of previously established procedures. Wh...
CONCLUSIONS: Absence of proper resting is crucial on performance even if nurses perceived a good quality sleep. The relationship between shift work, poor sleep quality, and risk of medication errors represents crucial point for all health professionals' community, and web-survey represents a valuable information in order to capture the risk of medication errors. Health care organizations should encourage such a type of research in order to show a more proactive approach towards patient safety. PMID: 32633400 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Oxidative stress and Inflammation significantly correlate with OSA; similarly, vascular functioning is impaired in accordance to unregulated levels of NO and derived compounds. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure markedly improves oxidative stress, inflammation and endothelial dysfunction in OSA. PMID: 32633387 [PubMed - in process]

no LK Abstract Purpose To analyze, in aged obese patients, the weight loss, comorbidity control, and safety postoperative complications of bariatric surgery by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass technique. Methods Twenty-seven patients who underwent laparoscopic weight-reducing gastroplasty with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass to treat obesity were included. All patients were ≥ 60 years old at the time of surgery. The Wilcoxon test was used for statistical analysis, and a p-value ≤0.05it was considered significant. Results Ten (90.9%) patients with dyslipidemia were cured (p
While working at a mental health clinic in Harlem years ago, I got used to hearing the most traumatic stories I could have ever imagined. They were the normal way to live for many of my clients. One day a woman in her 40s, who lived in a drug den and had gone through a frightful marriage before her husband was imprisoned, asked me how she could know if her son was traumatized. As a then-inexperienced clinician, I took out the last version of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) off my shelf the same way a cowboy would take out his pistol from his belt, ready to shoot off a diagnosis. Diagnostic ...
