Psychiatry Is Still Stuck in Freud ’s Era. Big Data Can Revolutionize How We Care for Patients
I have a problem. I am a psychiatrist in the 21st century and yet I still evaluate patients the way Freud did a century ago: I sit with a patient and, by carefully observing how and what they say, I expect them to tell me what’s wrong. The problem isn’t that I speak with and listen to my patients. Every doctor of every speciality does that. Rather, my problem is that I never measure the data I think are most important to my treatment of psychiatric diseases. Consider how I evaluate a patient for psychosis in the emergency room. When I speak with them, I want to know what their life is like—what’s th...

Mayo Clinic Q & amp;A podcast: Taking the fear out of cardiac testing
When it comes to the heart, it can be scary to seek care when you think you might be having a problem. Tests may be necessary to evaluate your heart, and the unfamiliar terminology associated with these tests can be confusing and intimidating. Understanding terms like electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, coronary angiogram or stress test may help alleviate the fear. "Whenever we order these tests, we don't want you to have anxiety," says Dr. Christopher DeSimone, a Mayo… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

NHS pay campaign: #2daysfor2k kicks off around the UK
In the latest instalment of the #2daysfor2k campaign taking place now, health workers across England, Wales and Northern Ireland are taking part in  a whole host of imaginative ways to demand a real pay rise. UNISON head of health Sara Gorton said: “NHS staff have given their all during the pandemic.  But despite their incredible efforts, the Westminster government says a meagre 1% rise is all they’re worth. We have to apply maximum pressure to force them to admit they’ve got this badly wrong. “The record number of patients waiting for treatment shows the huge challenges ahead for the NHS....

All Over the U.S., People Have Gained Weight During the COVID-19 Pandemic
If you’re like most Americans, the past year has been a time of fear, anxiety and often profound tedium—but also of worsening dietary habits. Take 328 million people and confine them to their homes for weeks and months on end and they’re going to start eating more and exercising less. That means, no surprise, weight gain. A study published March 22 in JAMA took a crack at determining just how many pounds the average American packed on in between February and June 2020, and came up with about 7.08 lb. (3.24 kg). Even before the pandemic began, the researchers, all from the University of California, San Fra...

More about chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, CEBM (updated 30th August 2020)
VERDICT The hypothesis that the 4-aminoquinolines chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine may be beneficial in the treatment of COVID-19 is a weak one, based on poor mechanistic reasoning and inconsistent results of studies in vitro, in laboratory animals, and in humans. It is likely that even if chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are effective in COVID-19, the beneficial effects will be small. The risks of adverse reactions to these drugs may be increased in patients who are acutely ill with severe COVID-19, in many of whom high doses are being used.

Discussion Congenital heart diseases (CHD) are malformations of the heart and great vessels. It occurs in about 5-8/1000 live births. Cyanotic congenital heart disease is often noted perinatally because of cyanosis, respiratory distress and/or poor feeding or other distress type problems. A review can be found here. Acyanotic congenital heart disease (ACHD) can present at birth but often is seen in older children or adults unless the lesions are severe, especially obstructive lesions. Severe lesions may also cause cyanosis and distress type problems in patients also. Shunting lesions cause problems by diverting blood flo...
