ICU Memories and Patient Outcomes in a Low Middle–Income Country: A Longitudinal Cohort Study
CONCLUSIONS: Gaps in memory and various memory types were common after ICU admission, whose prevalence waned over time. Compared with nightmares and fearful memories, gaps in memories were most strongly associated with poor mental health and quality of life. Identifying patients with gaps in memories might be an objective way of planning interventions to improve their long-term outcomes.

Jackson Avenue is the main road that cuts through Oxford, Miss. At its northern limit, it circles the Ole Miss campus where Raven Saunders had spent the past three years as a student athlete. At its western end, Jackson splits into a T junction populated by a cluster of familiar American fast food restaurants and retail chains: a Walmart Supercenter, a Home Depot, a Popeye’s, a Chick-Fil-A. Saunders, a senior at University of Mississippi and a star shot putter on the school’s track and field team, knew the intersection well. Turn right, and the road led home. Turn left, and the highway hugged a steep drop-off f...
CONCLUSION: Individuals who engage in conscious dance report that these practices help them to cope with stress-related health conditions. Participants reporting longer duration or greater frequency of practice scored higher on measures of psychological well-being. The feasibility and efficacy of conscious dance for improving well-being among individuals naïve to these approaches will be important to determine in future research.PMID:34260998 | DOI:10.1016/j.ctcp.2021.101440
This article reviews the evidence for the treatment of painful-DPN, including emerging treatment strategies, such as novel compounds and stratification of patients according to individual characteristics, (e.g., pain phenotype, neuroimaging, and genotype) to improve treatment responses.PMID:34238163 | DOI:10.2174/1573399817666210707112413
