Authors: Pincus T, Schmukler J, Castrejon I Abstract A patient history generally provides the most important information in diagnosis and management of patients with most rheumatic diseases, including osteoarthritis (OA). Patient history components can be expressed as quantitative, structured, "scientific" data, rather than "subjective" narrative descriptions, using patient self-report questionnaires. The Western Ontario McMaster (WOMAC) questionnaire is used in all OA clinical trials, and the health assessment questionnaire (HAQ) in all rheumatoid arthritis (RA) clinical trials, as "diseas...

Authors: Hawker GA Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, affecting 1 in 3 people over age 65 and women more so than men. The prevalence of OA is rising due, in part, to the increasing prevalence of OA risk factors, including obesity, physical inactivity, and joint injury. OA-related joint pain causes functional limitations, poor sleep, fatigue, depressed mood and loss of independence. Compared to age and sex-matched peers, OA patients incur higher out of pocket health-related expenditures and substantial costs due to lost productivity. Most people with OA (59-87%) have at least one othe...

The mechanisms by which D3R in...

However, the effects of CTRP3 on depression are largely unknown. In the present study, we found that CTRP3 expression levels were markedly reduced in hippocampus of mice with depression induced by chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS). In mouse mode...

ConclusionOur data demonstrate that DEX sedation carries a potential risk of aspiration due to swallowing reflex depression during elevation of the larynx; therefore, suctioning of water and saliva should be rigorously performed. However, peripheral muscle contraction of the submental muscle complex, neural organization function, and timing of the swallowing reflex in relation to the respiratory cycle are not affected.

There is overlap between the symptoms of depression and burnout. Many of those with burnout are also depressed. If the depression is significant, the individual should be referred for therapy. However, many articles on therapy for those with burnout are flawed, and the best type of therapy for burnout is controversial. However, cognitive behavior therapy is usually helpful for the emotional exhaustion component of burnout. Counseling and/or coaching may be helpful for those having burnout without significant depression. There are lessons from positive psychology that may be utilized to help counsel those with burnout.
