What Psychotic Episodes Really Look and Feel Like
When we hear someone is psychotic, we automatically think of psychopaths and cold-blooded criminals. We automatically think “Oh wow, they’re really crazy!” And we automatically think of plenty of other myths and misconceptions that only further the stigma surrounding psychosis. In other words, the reality is that we get psychosis very wrong. For starters, psychosis consists of hallucinations and/or delusions. “You can have one or both at the same time,” said Devon MacDermott, Ph.D, a psychologist who previously worked in psychiatric hospitals and outpatient centers, treating individuals experi...

Head-Up CPR May Improve Neurologically Intact Survival Rates
Head-up CPR is a novel concept in resuscitation that has the potential to improve neurologically intact survival after cardiac arrest. Inspired by the clinical question of whether patients in cardiac arrest should be transported either head-up or feet-up in a small elevator, an initial animal study was performed in 2014. In this swine model of cardiac arrest, pigs underwent five-minute periods of automated CPR with an impedance threshold device (ITD-16) in the traditional supine position, then with a 30-degree whole-body head-up tilt, and then a 30-degree whole-body head-down tilt.
