Gilbert (2005) showed that to reduce the internal shame and self-criticism CMT was particularly significant. The findings from Gilbert’s research have been furthered to show the significance of increasing warmth reassurance and self-soothing (Gilbert & Procter, 2006). CFT has also been shown to be significantly effective in treating mental health conditions, but mainly effective in treating depression. This was supported by MacBeth and Gumley (2012), through a systematic review (meta-analysis) of the current literature on mental health conditions. All studies used the Neff Self-Compassion scale (Neff, 2003) which showed a large effect size for the relationship between compassion and psychopathology.
An increased PI is an early indicator of the pharmacologic effect of the anesthesia, often occurring before the onset of the anesthetic effect providing the physician an early indicator of successful anesthetic administration. In the neonatal acute care setting, a low PI has been shown to be an objective indicator of severe illness. In conjunction with oxygen saturation and pulse rate, a diminished PI becomes an important indicator of a critical state of neonatal health. As such, the PI may be important to consider as a standardized, objective measure in addition to conventional subjective means of assessing the state of the neonate. From
In this case study they observed 532 bedside handovers and they interviewed 34 nurses. These handovers provided opportunity for the off going nurse to introduce the oncoming nurse, for them to perform safety checks and medication checks. It was found that bedside nursing handovers improved accuracy, promoted patient centered care and improved service delivery Clarke, D., Werestiuk, K., Schoffner, A., Gerard, J., Swan, K. (2012). Achieving the “perfect handoff” in patient transfers: building teamwork and trust. Journal of Nursing Management, 20, 592-598.
Overall, Spun did an amazing job portraying methamphetamine and its effects. I found that the content related to methamphetamine was very accurate. First, the movie accurately portrayed most the many methods of taking methamphetamine. According to the How Is Methamphetamine Abused (2013), methamphetamine can be taken orally, snorted, injected, and smoked. Spun showed that methamphetamine can be taken orally.
The following article explains how the use of clozapine can help treat a patient with schizophrenia. The author explains that clozapine is a atypical antipsychotic medication, that is the most significant advancement in the treatment of chronic schizophrenia. The author states that clozapine has been found to reduce or alleviate positive symptoms associated with schizophrenia such as hallucinations, delusions, and thought disorder. Along with this, there are side effects which include, a relatively high incidence of agranorocgtosis, sedation, excessive salivation, lowered blood pressure, and seizures. Although, clozapine has positive symptoms and help those with schizophrenia, many of those people do not receive it.
The use of continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, is considered to be the first line of treatment for patients suffering from sleep apnea (Dulak, 2005). The benefits of using CPAP in HF patients with obstructive sleep apnea consist of improved right ventricular function, diastolic function, and contractility (Turgut and Perker, 2010). CPAP helps prevent airway collapse during the sleep cycle, thus reducing apnea hypopnea index (Dulak, 2005). The utilization of CPAP has also shown a reduction in death and hospitalization in patients using CPAP suffering from HF compared to untreated patients with HF (Turgut and Perker, 2010). Sleep apnea and HF are a lethal combination.

Placebo is a widespread clinical phenomenon that is considered as sham medication. This can also be an effective medication to certain health problems or psychological matters such as depression, chronic diseases, and sometimes, life threatening diseases. On 75 clinical trials conducted between 1981 and 2000, a Columbia University psychiatrist named B. Timothy Walsh found out that on an average of antidepressants given, 30% of people who was given placebos improved. This shows that the response rate of placebos is sharper than the real medicinal drug. Placebo is also an antidepressant that is particularly benefited by young people.
WebMD (2016) reported that caffeine is effective in headache-related ailments, such as migraine-induced headache, post-surgery pain and tension-induced headache, but with conjoint drugs as well to increase the efficiency. As caffeine is known as central nervous system stimulant, it helps people to stay awake and prevent sleepiness, thus caffeine is also combined with antihistamines to counteract the effect of drowsiness rendered by antihistamines. Besides, in low doses, caffeine is used for treatment of breathing problems in
Mr. Devi was complaining of severe headache with pain score of 10/10, strong pain relief medication prescribed for the pain management. Upon diagnosis of CVA on his CT scan, he was administered stat medication of intravenous anti-hypertensive agent Labetalol as prescribed. Labetalol is an anti- hypertensive medication used to lower severe hypertension both in acute ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke. It is a selective alpha1 and non- selective beta1 and beta 2 blocking agent, with minimal intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. Because of its unique combination of actions, it contributes to lowering blood pressure via vasodilatation and a slowing of heart rate without affecting cardiac output, renal hemodynamic and cerebral blood flow (Harrington
The aerosol form of the steroid is highly recommended for asthma patients, since it rapidly reaches the throat area providing significant relief to patient. Some refute the negative effects of steroids which include ulcers, weight gain, cataracts, high blood pressure, and easy bruising. True, steroids do not have ideal side effects but neither do
Anaesthetist explained to the author that Isoflurane was suitable for Sibert because of his age and healthy status. Furthermore, Smith et al., (1992) also mentioned that Isoflurane is a good anaesthetic agent for adults and causes less cardiovascular effects. Again, Frink et al.,(1992) emphasised that Isoflurane when used on patients with ASA grade 1,the incidence of post-operative nausea and vomiting is very less even though it causes respiratory
Questionable methods of pain relief have been practiced on this planet since the stone ages. Luckily, modern advancements in medicine have granted us safe and quick options for relieving pain. Analgesics, often referred to as painkillers, are drugs that work by targeting the peripheral and central nervous systems. They are important because they are responsible for alleviating our headaches, body aches, fever, and inflammation. Non-opioid analgesics include acetaminophen and non- steroidal inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as aspirin; they are typically used for mild pain.
