French Language Online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia Disorder: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Conclusions: The present eCBT-I program seems feasible, acceptable and effective in reducing insomnia severity and insomnia-related functional outcomes in this small clinically-derived population. Given the high prevalence of insomnia, our data are supportive of the use of such program as an effective alternative to treat insomnia in daily clinical practice in French speaking countries.

Conclusions: Sleep problems may persist after anxiety treatment, suggesting that CBT for insomnia may be warranted during or after a course of CBT for anxiety. Importantly, baseline insomnia does not impede anxiety reduction during CBT. PMID: 31955594 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

n Restless legs syndrome is a relatively common neurologic disorder considerably more prevalent in women than in men. It is characterized by an inactivity-induced, mostly nocturnal, uncomfortable sensation in the legs and an urge to move them to make the disagreeable sensation disappear. Some known genes contribute to this disorder and the same genes contribute to an overlapping condition—periodic leg movements that occur during sleep and result in insomnia. Dopamine and glutamate transmission in the central nervous system are involved in the pathophysiology, and an iron deficiency has been shown in region-sp...

Abstract STUDY OBJECTIVES: Positive airway pressure (PAP) noncompliance remains a major barrier in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treatment. The PAP-NAP, a daytime PAP "test-drive," has been associated with increased PAP use, but risk factors and indications for the procedure remain unspecified. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted on 139 patients who (1) were diagnosed with OSA (n = 116) or upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) (n = 23); (2) adamantly refused to proceed with either a full-night attended titration or in-home trial of PAP; and (3) elected to proceed with a PAP-NAP ins...

DiscussionThis is the first trial testing the effectiveness of smartphone apps delivered to school students to prevent depression at scale. Results from this trial will provide much-needed insight into the feasibility of this approach. They stand to inform policy and commission decisions concerning if and how such programmes should be deployed in school-based settings in Australia and beyond.Trial registrationAustralian and New Zealand Clinical Trial Registry,ACTRN12619000855123.

What are the Signs of Opioid Use? Opioids are a group of drugs derived naturally from the poppy plant, or are man-made in a laboratory, also known as synthetic opioids. Opioids are generally prescribed to individuals suffering from chronic pain, whether from surgery, a major injury or other health issues. Legally prescribed opioids include morphine, codeine, and oxycodone, while illegal opioids include heroin. It is easy to know if an individual is using opioids if they’ve been prescribed, but it is also important to know the signs of opioid use if it has crossed the line into an addiction. Signs and Symptoms There a...
