A Prospective Observation of Psychological Distress in Patients With Anaphylaxis.

A Prospective Observation of Psychological Distress in Patients With Anaphylaxis. Allergy Asthma Immunol Res. 2020 May;12(3):496-506 Authors: Lee Y, Chang HY, Kim SH, Yang MS, Koh YI, Kang HR, Choi JH, Kim CW, Park HK, Kim JH, Nam YH, Kim TB, Hur GY, Jung JW, Park KH, Kim MA, Kim J, Yoon J, Ye YM Abstract PURPOSE: Anaphylaxis is an immediate allergic reaction characterized by potentially life-threatening, severe, systemic manifestations. While studies have evaluated links between serious illness and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), few have investigated PTSD after anaphylaxis in adults. We sought to investigate the psychosocial burden of recent anaphylaxis in Korean adults. METHODS: A total of 203 (mean age of 44 years, 120 females) patients with anaphylaxis were recruited from 15 university hospitals in Korea. Questionnaires, including the Impact of Event Scale-Revised-Korean version (IES-R-K), the Korean version of the Beck Anxiety Inventory (K-BAI), and the Korean version of the Beck Depression Inventory (K-BDI), were administered. Demographic characteristics, causes and clinical features of anaphylaxis, and serum inflammatory markers, including tryptase, platelet-activating factor, interleukin-6, tumor necrosis factor-α, and C-reactive protein, were evaluated. RESULTS: PTSD (IES-R-K ≥ 25) was noted in 84 (41.4%) patients with anaphylaxis. Of them, 56.0% had severe PTSD (IES-R-K ≥ 40). Additionally, 23.2% and 28.1% of the patie...

CONCLUSIONS: Opiate analgesia can disrupt performance on the Westmead PTA scale in school-aged children resulting in a high false-positive error rate. It is therefore important to record pain medication schedules and interpret results cautiously when opiate analgesia is used following a TBI. Alteration of the method of administration of the memory items should be researched as this may increase the validity of the scale for children with TBI treated with opiate analgesics.

In this study, investigate whether there is an association between GSDMA (rs7212938, T/G) and GSDMB (rs7216389, T/C) at locus 17q21.2 and risk of Allergic Rhinitis among Jordanians. Also we aimed to determine if there is an association between such polymorphisms and the IgE level. METHODS: The study included 112 rhinitis patients and 111 Healthy controls. Gasdermin A (GSDMA) (rs7212938, T/G) and Gasdermin B (rs7216389, T/C) polymorphisms were genotyped using the PCR-RFLP method. RESULTS: On the genotype level, three analysis models were applied namely co-dominant, dominant and recessive genotypes. GSDMB CC genotype...

Resumo O presente ensaio busca discutir as implica ções do isolamento social devido à pandemia do COVID-19 para o uso intensivo da internet entre crianças e adolescentes e suas possíveis consequências para a prática de violências autoinflingidas. Discutimos brevemente o potencial ansiogênico e a reprodução de um “ medo global ” que se consolidam com a exposi ção maciça e sem mediação dos conteúdos consumidos, que podem aumentar as vulnerabilidades para estresse e ideações suicidas.

Conclusions: The communication of bad news was considered adequate by the parents, although this perception was not unanimous. This study, therefore, indicates that it is necessary to improve the communication of bad news in this NICU. Training professionals can assist in this process.RESUMO Objetivo: Descrever os relatos dos pais de rec ém-nascidos (RNs) com malformações congênitas internados em uma Unidade de Terapia Intensiva Neonatal (UTIN) a respeito de como receberam as más notícias, buscando identificar as questões relacionadas à percepção de uma m...
