The study evaluates the effect of adolescent depression after a decade with respect to social, demographic, and health outcomes. The results suggest a significant correlation with depression recurrence, migraine headaches and lower level of self-reported health status. There is little correlation with the individual’s education, career, income or relationship status. An analysis of these outcomes helps in understanding the effect of adolescent depression and need for screening and treatment.

Doses for Epinephrine Base on Indication: Indication Dose Administration Anaphylactic 0.3-0.5mg of 1:1,000 Intramuscular (IM) Anaphylactic 0.1mg of 1:10,000 IV push over 5 minutes shock Myocardial 1mg of 1:10,000 IV push Infarction concentration What could’ve been done by the medical team to prevent these errors? There are a few aspects related to epinephrine that tends to increase the risk factors of errors in dosing and administrating correctly. The dosage
Lorazepam can also be used as premedication for anxiolysis at a dose of 2 mg as bolus and its elimination half life is 13.8 hrs. Though Lorazepam onset of action is delayed, it produces a constant sedative effect on the CNS when bolus dose precedes a continuous infusion. This property of lorazepam made available in the critical care medicine.5 Aim To compare the safety and efficacy of Lorazepam over a well-established premedication, Alprazolam, in producing sedation and anxiolysis effects. Objectives 1. To determine and compare the sedative and anxiolytic effects of orally administered Alprazolam and Lorazepam in control and treatment group at time intervals of 30, 60 and 90 minutes.
A study conducted by Mahmoud, F. S & Abd-ElSadik, B. (2013).to assess the effect of clinical pathway regarding promoting quality nursing care of children with meningitis exposed to invasive procedures. They found that the mean age of the studied nurses was 25.46 ± 5.08 years. As regards nursing qualification, about two thirds (64.3%) of them had secondary nursing school diploma. As illustrated from the results of the current study the majority of nurses had unsatisfactory level of knowledge and incompetent practice about diabetes and DKA before application of CP as compared to post implementation of CP the relatively high percentage of them gained satisfactory level of knowledge and competent practice.
Overall both the synthetic drug bath salts and crocodil result in damage to both the brain and body. The average lifespan for a crocodil user is 2 years while a bath salts user has a large chance of succumbing to an overdose after building up a tolerance. The drugs themselves have varying can be obtained with varying difficulty in the United States. One thing that is similar in both crocodile and bath salts is that the addiction can be treated through in-patient care involving the proper medical training and cognitive behavior
11, 12 How¬ever, Post-natal depression (PND) is diagnosed in only 50% of the women with prominent symptoms during first year after delivery. On the contrary, untreated PND can cause chronic depression and interferes in mother child bonding and even to the extent of suicide as well as infanticide in rare cases.13 However, it is important to distinguish PND from the “baby blues” that occurs be¬tween three and 10 days after giving birth; and “Post¬natal psychosis” which affects one in 500 women in the first week or so after child birth.4 The present study was conducted with an objective to assess the burden of postpartum depression in a group of Indian women attending a tertiary care teaching hospital using EPDS
Most of the time, psychiatric clinical research constitutes patients who are quite vulnerable and helpless due to their incapability to give consent. These patients are ethically and morally acceptable if there are no other ways of addressing the clinical questions made available to them. Conflict of interest is quite prevalent among psychiatric clinical trials, where there is a greater possibility of reporting a drug to be better than a placebo. In a study by Frances (2007), where 397 clinical trials were taken a closer look at, 239 trials had received funding from the pharmaceutical company that had manufactured the drug being studied, or other interested parties. Another 187 studies had included one or more authors with financial conflict of interest (Frances, 2007).

To assess the effect of topical 0.75%Metronidazole Gel on malodorous Cutaneous Ulcers. 1-By day 7 ,malodour had fallen to 11% and by day14 to 4%. 41 patient (95%) of 43 patients at 14 days reported decreased smell.
The first-line treatment for RMSF is 7-14 days of doxycycline for both adults (100 mg BID) and children of all ages. Patients who are severely ill should be hospitalized and given intravenous doxycycline. An added benefit of doxycycline is that it covers other tick-borne organisms with clinical presentations that may be confused with RMSF. Another course of treatment is Chloramphenicol (50-75 mg/kg/day for 7 days) has anti-RMSF activity. However, its efficacy is inferior when compared to doxycycline, it has more side effects, and it has a complex dosing schedule.
According to WHO, about fifty million people have epilepsy around the world. Traditional medical care to patients for control their seizures include drug therapy and surgery. But recently acknowledged that the comprehensive epilepsy treatment beyond these treatments. Adherence to medication and behavioral factors irrelevant to medicine Such as personal information management, management of seizures and lifestyle, play an important role in the success of epilepsy treatment.

New synthetic drugs are a cause for concern, but their use is not increasing. Synthetic marijuana (also known as Spice or K2)—referring to herbal mixtures laced with synthetic chemicals similar to THC, the main active ingredient in marijuana—was added to the MTF survey in 2011, when 11.4 percent of high school seniors reported using it in the past year; in 2013, it had dropped to 7.9 percent. These mixtures could be obtained legally until 2012 and are still wrongly perceived as a safe alternative to marijuana. The synthetic stimulants known as “bath salts” were added to the survey in 2012; in 2013, just 0.9 percent of seniors had used these drugs in the past
Medication administration errors occurs 34 percent more often than any other preventable error. These errors directly impact patient safety. According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), there are approximately one million patients harmed in hospitals across the United States. Studies support barcode scanning medication during medication administration can prevent this type of medication error (Marx, K., Stoudenmire, L.L., & Manasco, K.B., 2013). It is report that barcode medication administration (BCMA) may reduce medication administration errors by 86 percent (Gooder, V., 2012).
(Johnson, 2001). A heroin treatment program used in federal institutions is called Methadone Maintenance Treatment also known as (MMT). MMT works by injecting heroin addicts with methadone, which is a synthetic analgesic, drug that actives the same opiate receptors as heroin by using this treatment the individual is less likely to experience withdrawal symptoms, some participants have reported
