Measurement of fatigue in industries. (2/459)

Fatigue of workers is a complex phenomenon resulting from various factors in technically innovated modern industries, and it appears as a feeling of exhaustion, lowering of physiological functions, breakdown of autonomic nervous balance, and decrease in work efficiency. On the other hand industrial fatigue is caused by excessive workload, remarkable alteration in working posture and diurnal and nocturnal rhythms in daily life. Working modes in modern industries have changed from work with the whole body into that with the hands, arms, legs and/or eyes which are parts of the body, and from physical work to mental work. Visual display terminal (VDT) work is one of the most characteristic jobs in the various kinds of workplaces. A large number of fatigue tests have already been adopted, but it is still hard to draw a generalized conclusion as to the method of selecting the most appropriate test battery for a given work load. As apparatus for fatigue measurement of VDT work we have developed VRT (Visual Reaction Test) and the Portable Fatigue Meter. Furthermore, we have presented immune parameters of peripheral blood and splenic T cells for physical fatigue.  (+info)

Occupational stress in human computer interaction. (3/459)

There have been a variety of research approaches that have examined the stress issues related to human computer interaction including laboratory studies, cross-sectional surveys, longitudinal case studies and intervention studies. A critical review of these studies indicates that there are important physiological, biochemical, somatic and psychological indicators of stress that are related to work activities where human computer interaction occurs. Many of the stressors of human computer interaction at work are similar to those stressors that have historically been observed in other automated jobs. These include high workload, high work pressure, diminished job control, inadequate employee training to use new technology, monotonous tasks, por supervisory relations, and fear for job security. New stressors have emerged that can be tied primarily to human computer interaction. These include technology breakdowns, technology slowdowns, and electronic performance monitoring. The effects of the stress of human computer interaction in the workplace are increased physiological arousal; somatic complaints, especially of the musculoskeletal system; mood disturbances, particularly anxiety, fear and anger; and diminished quality of working life, such as reduced job satisfaction. Interventions to reduce the stress of computer technology have included improved technology implementation approaches and increased employee participation in implementation. Recommendations for ways to reduce the stress of human computer interaction at work are presented. These include proper ergonomic conditions, increased organizational support, improved job content, proper workload to decrease work pressure, and enhanced opportunities for social support. A model approach to the design of human computer interaction at work that focuses on the system "balance" is proposed.  (+info)

Epidemiology of job stress and health in Japan: review of current evidence and future direction. (4/459)

With the increasing concern about job stress, there is a growing body of literature addressing psychosocial job stress and its adverse effects on health in Japan. This paper reviews research findings over the past 15 years concerning the assessment of job stress, the relationship of job stress to mental and physical health, and the effects of worksite stress reduction activities in Japan. Although studies were conducted in the past using ad-hoc job stress questionnaires, well-established job stressor scales have since been translated into Japanese, their psychometric properties tested and these scales extensively used in recent epidemiologic studies. While the impact of overtime and quantitative job overload on mental health seems moderate, job control, skill use and worksite support, as well as qualitative job demands, had greater effects on psychological distress and drinking problems in cross-sectional and prospective studies. These job stressors also indicated a strong association with psychiatric disorders, including major depression, even with a prospective study design. Long working hours were associated with a higher risk of myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and hypertension. There is evidence that the job demands-control model, as well as the use of new technology at work, is associated with higher levels of blood pressure and serum lipids among Japanese working populations. Fibrinolytic activity, blood glucose levels, immune functions and medical consultation rates were also affected by job stressors. It is further suggested that Japanese workers tend to suppress expression of positive feelings, which results in apparently higher psychological distress and lower job satisfaction among Japanese workers compared with workers in the U.S. Future epidemiologic studies in Japan should focus more on a prospective study design, theoretical models of job stress, job stress among women, and cultural difference and well-designed intervention studies of various types of worksite stress reduction.  (+info)

Rapid and simple analysis of urinary vanilmandelic acid by high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection. (5/459)

We examined an analytical method for urinary vanilmandelic acid (VMA) by high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection from the viewpoint of practical analysis and application. The sample pretreatment in our method is only the dilution of urine samples with citrate buffer. The calibration curve for VMA was linear within the range 0.2 to 20 ng. The detection limit was 50 pg at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3 and the coefficients of variation were 2.30-4.30%. Variations in the urinary levels of VMA, noradrenaline (NA) and adrenaline (Ad) during and after exercise were investigated for 5 males (mean +/- SD, 42.4 +/- 4.3 years of age). The high levels of urinary NA and Ad during 1 hr exercise rapidly decreased after exercise, whereas urinary VMA increased after exercise rather than during exercise and decreased later. The correlation of the urinary levels of VMA and NA for 71 salesman (mean +/- SD, 40.6 +/- 11.7 years of age) in a field study was significantly positive (r = 0.426, p < 0.001). These results suggest that urinary VMA mostly reflects NA, but the excretion rate of VMA is slower than that of NA.  (+info)

Shift work-related problems in 16-h night shift nurses (1): Development of an automated data processing system for questionnaires, heart rate, physical activity and posture. (6/459)

To assess the shift work-related problems associated with a 16-h night shift in a two-shift system, we took the following important factors into consideration; the interaction between circadian rhythms and the longer night shift, the type of morningness and eveningness experienced, the subjective sleep feeling, the subjects' daily behavior, the effectiveness of taking a nap during the long night shift, and finally the effectiveness of using several different kinds of measuring devices. Included among the measuring devices used were a standard questionnaire, repetitive self-assessment of subjective symptoms and daily behavior at short intervals, and a continuous recording of such objective indices as physical activity and heart rate. A potential problem lies in the fact that field studies that use such measures tend to produce a mass of data, and are thus faced with the accompanying technical problem of analyzing such a large amount of data (time, effort and cost). To solve the data analysis problem, we developed an automated data processing system. Through the use of an image scanner with a paper feeder, standard paper, an optical character recognition function and common application software, we were able to analyze a mass of data continuously and automatically within a short time. Our system should prove useful for field studies that produce a large amount of data collected with several different kinds of measuring devices.  (+info)

Shift work-related problems in 16-h night shift nurses (2): Effects on subjective symptoms, physical activity, heart rate, and sleep. (7/459)

We compared the shift work-related problems between 16-h night shift and 8-h evening/night shifts among nurses in a university hospital with respect to subjective symptoms, physical activity, heart rate (HR), and sleep. The nurses of one group (n = 20) worked a 16-h night shift under a rotating two-shift system, while those of the other group (n = 20) worked an 8-h evening or night shift under a rotating three-shift system. The 16-h night shift was staffed by three or four nurses who alternately took a 2-h nap during the shift, and had at least one day off after each shift. Subjective symptoms and daily behavior were measured every 30 min by the nurses before, during, after each shift as well as during days off using a time-budget method. Also, physical activity, heart rate (HR), and posture were recorded during shifts. The results showed similar or lower levels of sleepiness, difficulty in concentration, fatigue, physical activity, and HR during the 16-h shift compared to the 8-h shifts. No differences in subjective symptoms between the two shift schedules were observed before or after the shifts or during days off. The main sleep was longer after the shifts and during days off in the 16-h shift group than in the 8-h shift group.

We conducted a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to examine the effects of mailed advice on reducing psychological distress, blood pressure, serum lipids, and sick leave of workers employed in a manufacturing plant in Japan. Those who indicated higher psychological distress (defined as having GHQ scores of three or greater) in the baseline questionnaire survey (n = 226) were randomly assigned to an intervention group or a control group. Individualized letters were sent to the subjects of the intervention group, informing them of their stress levels and recommending an improvement in daily habits and other behaviors to reduce stress. Eighty-one and 77 subjects in the intervention and control groups, respectively, responded to the one-year follow-up survey. No significant intervention effect was observed for the GHQ scores, blood pressure, serum lipids, or sick leave (p > 0.05). The intervention effect was marginally significant for changes in regular breakfasts and daily alcohol consumption (p = 0.09). The intervention effect was marginally significant for the GHQ scores among those who initially did not eat breakfast regularly (p = 0.06). The study suggests that only sending mailed advice is not an effective measure for worksite stress reduction. Mailed advice which focuses on a particular subgroup (e.g., those who do not eat breakfast regularly) may be more effective.  (+info)

Although job burnout is common among bank employees, few studies have explored positive resources for combating burnout in this population. This study aims to explore the relationship between occupational stress and job burnout among Chinese bank employees, and particularly the mediating role of psychological capital. A cross-sectional study was conducted in Liaoning, China, during June to August of 2013. A questionnaire that included the effort-reward imbalance scale, the Psychological Capital Questionnaire and the Maslach Burnout Inventory-General Survey, as well as demographic and working factors, was distributed to 1739 employees of state-owned banks. This yielded 1239 effective respondents (467 men, 772 women). Asymptotic and resampling strategies explored the mediating role of psychological capital in the relationship between occupational stress and job burnout. Both extrinsic effort and overcommitment were positively associated with emotional exhaustion and depersonalisation. Meanwhile, reward

ISSN 0120-5307.. Objective. To determine the prevalence of burnout syndrome, and the relationship with the type of contract under which professors work for the university, in professors of an academic unit of a public university of the city of Medellin (Colombia) in 2008. Methodology. A cross sectional descriptive study was carried out in three independent, randomized, representative samples according to the type of contract (31 full timers, 21 part timers and 43 per hours). A total of 89 professors were interviewed. To measure burnout prevalence the Maslach Burnout Inventory was used. Results. The prevalence of burnout probable cases was 19.1%, an additional 49.4% was at risk of having suffered it. According to the type of contract, full time professors had the highest prevalence (25.0%). In general, ...
The aims of this study were to assess the validity and internal consistency of constructs in a model of work-related well-being and to test a structural model of their relationships. The Maslach Burnout Inventory-General Survey, Utrecht Work Engagement Scale, a Job Demands-Resources Scale, a Health Questionnaire, and an Organizational Commitment Scale were administered to a stratified random sample of 1177 educators in North-west Province (South Africa). A good fit was found for a model in which burnout (exhaustion and mental distance) mediated the relationship between job demands and ill-health, while work engagement (vigor and dedication) mediated the relationship between job resources and organizational commitment. Job resources contributed strongly to low burnout and high work engagement. These results suggest that both positive and negative aspects of work-related well-being (i.e. burnout and work engagement) can be integrated into one model.

The fit indices for models 1 and 3 are provided in Table 2. Model 2 resulted in negative variances, indicating that the model fit was poor. No further analyses were undertaken regarding Model 2. The results reported in Table 2 indicate that Model 1 did not fit the data, since the results did not fall within the acceptable boundaries of goodness-of-fit indices, as indicated in the literature (χ2 = 1360.96; GFI, IFI, TLI and CFI , 0.90 and RMSEA , 0.08). Model 3, which distinguished between the four proposed dimensions of Burnout, explained the associations among the items significantly better than did the other competing models (Model 3 vs. Model 1: Δχ2 = 908.24; Δdf = 4; p , 0.001). The third model hypothesised that the adapted MBI-GS consists of four latent first-order factors, namely Exhaustion (5 items), Cognitive Weariness (5 items), Cynicism (4 items), and Professional Efficacy (6 items), and one latent second-order factor, namely Burnout. It was assumed that the errors of items were ...
Introduction. Working in health care has some peculiarities that place a heavy burden of physical, cognitive and emotional demands on professionals. Excessive work, high competitiveness, conflicts, having to deal with death, lack of organization at the service and conflicts with colleagues are all variables that increase the risk of burnout or burnout syndrome (BS) in this population.1. BS is an essentially social manifestation that reflects the feelings of crisis and disorientation found in modern society, imposing tension on the most critical working fields, such as health care.2 It is also considered to be caused by chronic stress, typically observed at work environments, especially when excessive pressure and conflicts are present and when there is a scarcity of emotional rewards, recognition, and success.3. When regarded as a psychosocial phenomenon, BS is described as comprising three dimensions: emotional exhaustion, characterized by lack of energy and enthusiasm and depletion of ...

Objective To investigate emotional stress, coping and burnout among nursing staff and their association with biosocial factors and characteristics of work in Intensive Care Units (ICU). Method This was a cross-sectional study, conducted in eight ICUs at a teaching hospital in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, in October 2012. Biosocial data and information about the professionals work was gathered, and they were given the Scale of Occupational Stress, Scale of Occupational Coping, List of Signs and Symptoms of Stress and the Maslach Burnout Inventory. Results The study sample consisted of 287 subjects, predominately women, with partners and children. Most professionals presented moderate stress levels and control as a coping strategy (74.47% and 79.93%, respectively), and burnout was present among 12.54%. Factors associated with stress were related to working conditions. The most prevalent protective factors were having a partner, working in the clinical ICU and liking work, while adequate amount ...
Out of the 355 professionals included in this study, 27% were in burnout (this defined as being in burnout and in high risk of developing this syndrome). Univariate regression analyses showed that higher burnout levels were significantly associated with the following work-related experiences: night shifts, conflicts, decisions to withhold treatment, decisions to withdraw treatment and implementing terminal sedation. When controlling for socio-demographic and educational characteristics of the participant professionals, and for the setting (intensive vs. palliative care units), the only variable that remained significantly associated to higher burnout levels was ´conflicts´. ...
A burnout affects the whole of life - nothing works any more. The psychoanalyst Herbert Freudenberger (1927-1999) coined the term "burnout syndrome" for the first time in 1974. Whoever burns out becomes cynical, isolated and no longer works effectively. This can especially for the medical profession have serious consequences.. Clinicians in particular are often subject to unpredictable working times. They work with very ill patients and those concerned with the patients. The doctors private life is sometimes considerably curtailed. High volumes of working time correlate with the rate of burnout illness occurring with internists, general practitioners, palliative care physicians, young junior doctors and radiologists, as one study has showed. In addition, clinician physicians are often young and inexperienced, which increases their stress. The well-defined hierarchies in the hospital and pressure from above adds to this. Studies have shown that younger doctors due to their inexperience are ...
Work can be a real burden for some people. They feel overwhelmingly exhausted and cynical toward their workplace environment, and believe their efforts are not valued. In other words, they are burned out.
The secret to overcoming psychological fatigue at work could simply be to stay calm. In fact, theres scientific proof that keeping your composure reaps big benefits in the long run.. Thats according to Emma Seppälä, a Stanford psychologist and science director of Stanfords Center For Compassion and Altruism Research, in her book "The Happiness Track.". Though we normally associate being tired with physical exhaustion from either lack of sleep, an intense workout or a long day of physical labor, Seppälä says that psychological fatigue can wear you out just as much. Plus, she says, it can lead to professional burnout.. But thats not the case, she writes. "Instead, being calm allows you to get your work done while spending less energy than you otherwise would," according to Seppälä.. You might feel high-intensity emotions, such as excitement and elation, come into play during moments when you feel anxious or excited to finish a project on deadline or every time you get a new email ...

The plans for anaerobic digestion specialists such as GTS Maintenance and Tamar Energy is to create as much renewable energy as possible to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels that adversely affect the environment.. And we could be well on our way to achieving this goal.. In this news article, the UKs largest on-farm anaerobic digestion plant opened in Nottinghamshire this year and is in the process of turning farm waste - such as manure, maize and general agricultural waste - into green electricity; with the potential to power 6000 homes.. The plant can also create bio-fertiliser; an alternative to fossil fuel based fertilisers AND the heat generated through the facilitys function will be used to dry woodchips that will then be sold on.. Those in favour of AD see it as a positive way to create renewable energy. Concerns about AD include a scenario where we may need to grow food specifically to feed AD plants. But in the case of agricultural waste, maybe AD is a forward-thinking solution to ...

Aim: This study examined the levels of occupational stress and burnout among surgeons in Fiji. Methods: A document set comprising a cover letter; a consent form; a sociodemographic and supplementary information questionnaire; the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI); the 12-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12); the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT); and the Professional Quality of Life (ProQOL) questionnaires were provided to surgeons from three public divisional hospitals in Fiji. Thirty-six of 43 (83.7%) invited surgeons participated in the study.Results: According to their MBI scores, surgeons suffered from low (10, 27.8%), moderate (23, 63.9%), and high (3, 8.3%) levels of burnout. Comparatively, 23 (63.9%) demonstrated moderate burnout according to their ProQOL scores. Substantial psychiatric morbidity was observed in 16 (44.0%) surgeons per their GHQ-12 scores. Consumption of alcohol was noted in 29 (80.6%) surgeons and 12 (33.4%) had AUDIT scores characterizing their alcohol use

Where once the term burnout was applied exclusively to health care workers, police officers, firefighters, paramedics or social workers who deal with trauma and human services - think Graham Greenes novel "A Burnt-Out Case," about a doctor in the Belgian Congo, a book that gave rise to the term colloquially - the term has since expanded to workers who are now part of a more connected, hyperactive and overcompensating work force.. But occupational burnout goes beyond needing a simple vacation or a family retreat, and many experts, psychologists and institutions, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, highlight long-term and unresolvable burnout as not a symptom but rather a major health concern.

Our study found that more than half of the junior doctors surveyed displayed high levels of burnout but that debriefing sessions, while considered a valuable support mechanism, did not improve burnout scores using the MBI.. Female interns experienced higher levels of burnout, but no association was shown with age, current term or hours worked, confirming previous studies which also showed no causal relationship between burnout and demographic factors.27 Our findings confirm results of a larger-scale study where internal medical female residents demonstrated higher levels of emotional exhaustion and depersonalisation than men.28 Given our findings, factors associated with being female and the work environment, is worthy of further study.. Sources of stress focused on work-life balance, long working hours and continually adjusting to new environments and terms. These concepts, previously well documented, highlight the ongoing relevance of addressing these issues at an organisational level. The ...
Research over the last 10 years has shown that burnout - the particular constellation of emotional exhaustion, detachment and a low sense of accomplishment - is widespread among medical students and doctors-in-training. Nearly half of these aspiring doctors end up becoming burned out over the course of their schooling, quickly losing their sense of empathy for others and succumbing to unprofessional behavior like lying and cheating.Now, in what is the first study of burnout among fully trained doctors from a wide range of specialties, it appears that the young are not the only ones who are vulnerable. Doctors who have been practicing anywhere from a year to several decades are just as susceptible to becoming burned out as students and trainees. And the implications of their burnout -- unlike that of their younger counterparts, who are often under supervision -- may be more devastating and immediate ...
Increase Intrinsic Cognitive Load (Signal):. The cultivation of attention (improved working memory performance) can actually be made easier by increasing the difficulty of our work (increased signal). When the challenge of what we are doing matches our skill, it is easier to become engaged. Increased engagement has been correlated with higher levels of productivity, quality and well-being. Too little difficulty for our skill level (think EMR clicks, pre-authorization paperwork, or self-editing reports/charts) causes fatigue and boredom. This is often relieved by seeking out distractions. When our work is above our skill level (under-prepared for a lecture), we become anxious and overwhelmed-both of which are also relieved by distractions. The degree of difficulty of our professional work is especially relevant to the current practice of medicine. In a 1992 study Survey finds Low Office Productivity linked to Staffing Imbalances, economist Peter Sassone found that technological advances allowed ...
A diagnosis is made via a medical professionals evaluation, and sometimes tests to rule out other possible causes. Medical professionals suspect the disorder based on symptoms: Individuals have episodes of depersonalisation, derealisation, or both that last a long time or recur.Individuals know that their unreal experiences are not real.Individuals are very distressed by their symptoms…

Dear Friends,. I get asked many times when do I get to do my sewing, scrap booking or any other hobby or craft. Right now I want us to look at this. Now dont get me wrong we all need some down time, but lets examine our personalities in depth first.. As SHEs we have a tendency to hyper-focus and you all know what I mean. It is the perfectionism in us that causes us to keep going and spread our project all over our homes. If you have you ever scrubbed the grout in a tile floor with a toothbrush to make it all white, then you know exactly how we can hyper-focus. It is this inability to stop when we should that hurts us, our families and our homes. For some reason we have trouble with our starter and our breaks on our little engine.. If we think that we dont have enough time to do a job right, then we wont even start. Then if we ever do, we cant stop till it is all done right. It doesnt matter that dinner needs to be started or that the house has been trashed by the kids while you were on ...
The link between connection and overall health is becoming increasingly clear. Research suggests that people with rewarding social relationships are more likely than their peers to recover quickly from illness and live a long life. Connected people have lower levels of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and chronic negativity.. On the other hand, the health consequences of feeling isolated can be dramatic, from disrupted sleep to a compromised immune system.. And the modern plague of isolation is having an impact on our workplace. In addition to struggling with issues like diminished cognitive performance, it appears that lonely people more frequently suffer from exhaustion or disengagement on the job.. The association between loneliness and professional burnout can be complicated and difficult to chart. When my new clients talk about their disaffection at work, they seldom begin by using the word "lonely." But often, as we keep talking about their unhappiness or lack of productivity, social ...
Editors Note: This is Part One of a three-part story. Click here for Part Two and Part Three. This is the story of how a team of highly engaged employees executed a large business transformation from the bottoms-up. By reaching across functional, geographic and organizational boundaries, focusing on a common vision, and locking arms together, they overcame years of stagnation and cynicism and demonstrated a real cultural change in less than one year.. After 4 years of false starts and over $XXM spent on consultants, software, and FTEs, every "transformational" initiative we tried failed. Cynicism grew rampant about the "flavor of the month" initiative. Employees felt that management was totally disconnected from reality. However, the consultants werent wrong. The underlying operating system was falling apart. Without massive change the system would crash, meaning, we would be unable to profitably serve our customers and compete in the 21st Century. Something had to change.. Like many of these ...
Student researchers included undergraduates Izzy Mitchell, Richard Windisch, Kyra Schoonover, Robin Franke, Leonard Ngo and spatial informatics masters student Yuqing Qian. The students were funded by a donation from GIS company Esri, which was a partner with the city of Los Angeles in constructing the GeoHub portal. The students worked under the direction of Brazil, MacDonald and SSI Director John Wilson.. Windisch, an L.A. native, is a junior majoring in GeoDesign at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. He relished putting his curriculum-based learning into practice through this project.. "The opportunity to be on this research team and present a semesters worth of research to city officials and partners was a unique experience and personal accomplishment," he said. "I was able to see the importance of my degree in spatial sciences and how it can benefit an entire city as well as improve the understanding of Los Angeles working parts through the lens of different city ...
To be a Christian means one has traded in his "polluted garment" of self-righteousness for the perfect righteousness of Christ (Phil. 3:8-9; cf. Isa. 64:6). He has ceased striving and now rests in the finished work of Christ-no longer depending on personal accomplishments, religious pedigree, or good works for Gods approval, but only on what Christ has accomplished on his behalf (Phil. 2:8-9). A Christian understands with Paul that "it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" (Gal. 2:20). As regards Jesus paying the penalty for our sins, the Christian believes that when Jesus said, "it is finished" (John 19:30), it really was. Because of this, "there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Rom. 8:1), and they have been "saved to the uttermost" (Heb. 7:25). A miraculous transformation has taken place in which the believer has "passed from death to ...

Recent studies show about one in two U.S. doctors experience burnout in their jobs which can lead to eroding job performance, an increase in medical errors, doctors quitting and an increase in suicide rates.}
In the article "From Triple to Quadruple Aim: Care of the Patient Requires Care of the Provider," Sinsky and Bodenheimer conclude that clinician burnout is associated with lower patient satisfaction and reduced health outcomes, and may increase costs, thereby endangering the Triple Aim [2]. Dyrybe et al. identified that the rapidly changing US health care environment, including new payment and delivery approaches, the electronic health record (EHR), and publicly reported quality metrics, have profoundly affected clinician well-being [3]. There is no question that the recent pressures to decrease the cost of health care, raise clinical quality, and improve the patient experience have greatly increased the load clinicians must carry. In a 2014 study, physicians displayed higher rates than the general US working population of emotional exhaustion (43.2 percent versus 24.8 percent), depersonalization (23.0 percent versus 14.0 percent), and overall burnout (48.8 percent versus 28.4 percent), and ...
Theres also a body of research that ties stress and emotional exhaustion to hearing problems. In 2013, scientists at the Karolinska Institute and Stockholm Universitys Stress Research Institute in Sweden found that women with chronic emotional exhaustion were especially susceptible to stress-induced hyperacusis. After brief exposure in the lab to a physical, mental or social stressor, those women experienced the sound level of a normal conversation as uncomfortably loud ...

So, apparently people still read this blog! I am surpised as I havent updated it in forever. I suppose Ill do that now. I must warn you, however, it is not all good news. Well, after my show last year (in which I won my class and placed 3rd in masters)... I began another bulk that was intended to last for 7 months. I was training hard and often, 4-5 days per week with weights. I wasnt just training heavy... I was also training with high volume (lots of exercises, sets, and reps). I even continued to do cardio. I saw some progress but I was starting to feel burned out. By October I was REALLY burned out. I took a week off and when I started back I cut out all cardio and I cut my weights back to 4 days/wk. Unfortunately, my training continued to be high volume. I was still doing too much. I still felt fatigued but I pushed through it. Through the end of November I continued to bulk, gain, and make progress. I had put on 18lbs (from 135 to 152) but still looked fairly lean. I felt good about my ...
I know your pain! I just split and cut back all my irises and I have ALOT! They are so hard to saw up, I died. I hated it every minute. Why are they so MUCH work! But it feels good when you actually get it one.. Yes, this time of the year sucks. What I did was got rid of my flower pots and replanted them with shrubs, goldflame spirea. I just need to look at something else. They will turn to red and drop their leaves and thats fine. Its different to look at.. I just planted mini coral roses in front of my large bed in the front yard. I took out the strangely annuals that got wild and a little burned out and I was tried of looking at them.. Yes, its a bit wasteful because I could have gotten a few more months out of my overgrown, somewhat burned out annuals. But you know what…. Im excited again. I needed a change. And not just adding some mums which are *yawn* boring. And what everone is doing.. Its nearly bulb time, and if you dont feel like digging up and replanting perhaps planning a site ...
In years past, the NHF accomplishments flowed victoriously forward month-to-month. However, in 2015 every accomplishment was met with internal resistance from an unfaithful Board of Governors, dividing a previously united Board in half after the insinuation of a few. Prior to each Codex meeting, for example, or during the actual meeting when intense concentration was required, a new wave of in-fighting would erupt taking away from what the World may have gained or proving each victory doubly hard-won. These detractors have since resigned and fresh, enthusiastic professionals have taken their place, all successful in their own businesses and serving the World.. With a new governing foundation, proven loyal, and a fresh influx of fresh enthusiasm and spirit, NHF in its 60th year has indeed followed the legend of the eagle in its 60th year by plucking out its old feathers that impeded, and renewed its strengths.. Scott C. Tips, NHF President and General Counsel, strategically commanded during an ...

I am in love. No, not with you (sorry), but with Criterions upcoming Burnout 3: Takedown. The first two games in the series, published by Acclaim, had a lot of promise. The original Burnout was a great concept, but had only a handful of tracks and little beyond racing fast and brilliant crashes. Burnout 2 added Crash Mode, impressive visuals, lots more cars, and far better tracks. Though Criterion was on the right path, the UK company still hadnt fully realized the franchises potential. But with Burnout 3 everything has come together to provide a intense, fast, aggressive, beautiful, fun racer that may just end up being the best of its kind.

Please, whenever you are prescribed an antibiotic, look it up on www.drugs.com and look up ALL the side effects. I was prescribed avelox, and after taking just one pill had horrible side effects and thought I was going crazy. Looked it up on drugs.com and found this drug has a side effect of "depersonalization" - aka the "crazies"! Also, this drug can cause a tendon to tear, requiring surgery! I am not kidding - I wonder how many poor people have had these side effects and never linked them to this drug. Docs just dont concern themselves with side effects of a drug. You must be an informed consumer. Please do this with any medication you are taking, and if you are taking more than one med, click on their drug interactions checker - it is a great resource. Also, with antibiotic use it is necessary to get yourself a good quality PROBIOTIC to counterbalance the antibiotics stripping away all of your good intestinal bacteria.

Background: Depersonalisation is a subjective experience of unreality and detachment from the self often accompanied by derealisation; the experience of the external world appearing to be strange or unreal. Feelings of unreality can be evoked by disorienting vestibular stimulation.. Objective: To identify the prevalence of depersonalisation/derealisation symptoms in patients with peripheral vestibular disease and experimentally to induce these symptoms by vestibular stimulation.. Methods: 121 healthy subjects and 50 patients with peripheral vestibular disease participated in the study. For comparison with the patients a subgroup of 50 age matched healthy subjects was delineated. All completed (1) an in-house health screening questionnaire; (2) the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12); (3) the 28-item depersonalisation/derealisation inventory of Cox and Swinson (2002). Experimental verification of "vestibular induced" depersonalisation/derealisation was assessed in 20 patients and 20 controls ...
Our own clinical experience has been that many patients referred to our clinic have been on an SSRI for prolonged periods with little or no impact on their symptoms, and this has led us to investigate other potential pharmacotherapies, in particular the anticonvulsant lamotrigine. Lamotrigine acts at the presynaptic membrane to reduce the release of glutamate, and it has been shown to reverse depersonalisation-related phenomena induced by the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist ketamine in healthy individuals (Anand et al, 2000). In the absence of large-scale randomised controlled trials, and in the presence of conflicting published data (see below), the efficacy of lamotrigine (whether as monotherapy or in conjunction with an SSRI) is not yet firmly established, but it is often our first-line treatment for the condition.. An initial study of lamotrigine monotherapy in four patients with primary depersonalisation found substantial benefits in all cases (Sierra et al, 2001), but a ...

During the depersonalization experience, reality testing remains intact. C. The depersonalization causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. D. The depersonalization experience does not occur exclusively during the course of another mental disorder, such as Schizophrenia, Panic Disorder,Acute Stress Disorder, or another Dissociative Disorder, and is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition (e.g., temporal lobe epilepsy)..

Quality of work life (QWL) has been found to influence the commitment of health professionals, including nurses. However, reliable information on QWL and turnover intention of primary health care (PHC) nurses is limited. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between QWL and turnover intention of PHC nurses in Saudi Arabia. A cross-sectional survey was used in this study. Data were collected using Brooks survey of Quality of Nursing Work Life, the Anticipated Turnover Scale and demographic data questions. A total of 508 PHC nurses in the Jazan Region, Saudi Arabia, completed the questionnaire (RR = 87%). Descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, General Linear Model (GLM) univariate analysis, standard multiple regression, and hierarchical multiple regression were applied for analysis using SPSS v17 for Windows. Findings suggested that the respondents were dissatisfied with their work life, with almost 40% indicating a turnover intention from their current PHC centres. Turnover intention was
What can be done to improve effective supervision by consultants?. Given the above impediments, there may now be fewer opportunities for a supervisor to be a role model than there were previously.6 We believe that clinical supervision can be an Achilles heel of the hospital system. Hospitals generally lack either the resources or the motivation (or both) to ensure that it is done effectively. We need to create and develop systems, environments and cultures that support high standards of conduct and effective clinical supervision. This will require: commitment from the organisation, consultants and trainees; allocated time; and governance of the process.. Effective supervision requires the right staff. Recent publications from varying disciplines have offered suggestions for improved clinical supervision and can be used to build a framework.6 For supervisors, suggestions include those listed in Box 1. The supervision program should include the features outlined in Box 2.. We also offer ...

In recognising the highly stressful nature of the nursing profession, the added burden of hospital staff shortages, and patient overload, the present study explored the impact of work on family functioning, its relationship to job satisfaction and the role of spousal support in a group of 80 female nurses working in a government hospital. Using a descriptive, correlational design, the relationships among job satisfaction, work-family conflict (WFC) and spousal/partner support were explored. The hypotheses that job satisfaction and WFC would be negatively correlated, that job satisfaction and spousal support would be positively correlated, and that WFC and spousal support would be negatively correlated, were tested using correlation techniques. All hypotheses were confirmed. The ...
