CHANGING PATTERNS OF MENTAL HOSPITAL DISCHARGES AND READMISSIONS IN THE PAST TWO DECADES. (1/6)

The discharge and readmission pattern for the non-organic psychoses (chiefly schizophrenia and manic-depressive psychoses) was studied for three-year periods: immediately before extensive use of modern therapies (1940-42), when electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) alone was extensively used (1950-52), and finally when tranquillizers had been added (1956-58). Patients were followed up for four years after either admission or discharge. The cohort method was used. With the use of ECT alone discharge took place at an earlier period after admission but was associated with a higher rate of readmission. With the addition of tranquillizers the improvement in rate of discharge continued for the whole four years after admission and the readmission rate was reduced to that seen in the first period. The rate of changing factors other than specific therapies is discussed.  (+info)

Long-term prognosis and followup in schizophrenia. (5/6)

The long-term course or natural history of schizophrenia is correlated with differing diagnostic criteria and commonly agreed upon prognostic variables. A review of 38 long-term followup studies of hospitalized schizophrenics reveals that unspecified or Kraepelinian-type schizophrenia has a much worse prognosis than atypical schizophrenia, schizoaffective psychosis, reactive psychosis, or other good premorbid types. Diagnoses based on longitudinal as well as cross-reactional data are more predictive of outcome than cross-sectionally based diagnoses. Drug and psychosocial treatment results must be evaluated in terms of prognostic variables, many of which are incorporated in some currently employed diagnostic criteria. There is no firm evidence that maintenance medication is indicated in some good prognosis patients. The paucity of long-range followups, the inadequacies of outcome assessments, and diagnostic disagreements limit our understanding of the effects of drug treatment, a treatment which is not without dangerous neurological side effects in many patients.  (+info)

Impaired glucose tolerance: a late effect of insulin shock treatment. (6/6)

Glucose tolerance tests were performed in a group of patients in a mental hospital who had been treated with insulin shock and in a matched control group. Five out of 31 (16%) patients in the insulin-treated group and 1 out of 22 (5%) controls had "diabetic" blood sugar curves. Median blood sugar values were significantly higher at 60 minutes and later in the insulin-treated group, as were mean blood sugar values when the "diabetic" patients were excluded. Small amounts of plasma insulin-binding antibody were found in two insulin-treated patients. In the absence of any other clear-cut explanation, it is suggested that in some patients massive doses of insulin by injection may leave diminished tissue responsiveness to insulin as a long-term after-effect.  (+info)

Insulin shock therapy or insulin coma therapy (ICT) was a form of psychiatric treatment in which patients were repeatedly injected with large doses of insulin in order to produce daily comas over several weeks. It was introduced in 1927 by Austrian-American psychiatrist Manfred Sakel and used extensively in the 1940s and 1950s, mainly for schizophrenia, before falling out of favour and being replaced by neuroleptic drugs in the 1960s. It was one of a number of physical treatments introduced into psychiatry in the first four decades of the 20th century. These included the convulsive therapies (cardiazol/metrazol therapy and electroconvulsive therapy), deep sleep therapy and psychosurgery. Insulin coma therapy and the convulsive therapies are collectively known as the shock therapies. In 1927 Sakel, who had recently qualified as a doctor in Vienna and was working in a psychiatric clinic in Berlin, began to use low (sub-coma) doses of insulin to treat drug addicts and psychopaths. Having returned ...

How safe or risky is the treatment method in general?. ECT is amongst the safest and least risky medical procedures carried out under induction anaesthesia. To put the mortal risk with ECT in proper perspective, it is only necessary to note that ECT is about 10 times safer than childbirth. One large scale Scandinavian survey found one death in 22,210 treatments for a per-treatment mortality rate of 0.004%. Recent figures from the state of California reflected 2 deaths per 99,425 treatments, for a per treatment mortality rate of 0.002% (Kramer, 1985; Hermann & co-workers, 1995.) and are at the bottom of the reported range for anaesthesia induction alone (0.003% to 0.04%). The American Psychiatric Association and the British Royal College of Psychiatry recognizes no absolute contraindications to ECT. The same view is held by the Society of Psychiatrists of South Africa. As in all anaesthesias the greatest risks are in people with severe or unstable concomitant medical conditions.. How safe is it ...

Insulin coma and various types of convulsive therapies were the major biologic treatment modalities in psychiatry before the psychopharmacological era. Except for electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), these methods disappeared from the psychiatric armamentarium after the introduction of psychotropic drugs. Atropine coma therapy (ACT) was one variety of nonconvulsive coma therapy used from the 1950s in a few state mental hospitals in the United States and in several Middle- and Eastern European countries until the late 1970s. In ACT, a coma of 6-10 hours duration was induced with doses of parenteral atropine sulfate that were hundreds of times greater than the therapeutic dose administered in internal medicine. Although ACT was given to thousands of patients with a variety of diagnoses for nearly 3 decades, it is rarely mentioned, even in papers on the history of psychiatry. The method, indications, contraindications and adverse effects of ACT are summarized together with patients personal accounts. ...
Begin your training by discussing the basic relationship between blood sugars, cells and insulin. The cells in the body use glucose or sugar from carbohydrates for the energy it needs to perform everyday functions. Insulin, which normally is made in the pancreas, is necessary for enabling sugar to enter the cells. By doing so, it keeps the levels of sugar in the blood from getting too high. If that happens, a condition called hyperglycemia occurs. Hyperglycemia can cause severe dehydration, and overtime, can lead to serious damage to organs, such as the heart, eyes and nervous system. If the body doesnt make its own insulin, or if it cant effectively use the insulin it does produce, an injectable insulin medication, or medication that will increase the amount of insulin the body makes, may be needed. Either medication requires the consumer to know how much is needed and when to take it. For people with insulin-dependent diabetes, taking a prescribed insulin shot before eating helps the body ...

TY - CONF. T1 - Visual analysis of scientific discoveries and knowledge diffusion. AU - Chen, Chaomei. AU - Zhang, Jian. AU - Vogeley, Michael S.. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - We introduce a new visual analytic approach to the study of scientific discoveries and knowledge diffusion. Our approach enhances contemporary co-citation network analysis by enabling analysts to identify co-citation clusters of cited references intuitively, synthesize thematic contexts in which these clusters are cited, and trace how research focus evolves over time. The new approach integrates and streamlines a few previously isolated techniques such as spectral clustering and feature selection algorithms. The integrative procedure is expected to empower and strengthen analytical and sense making capabilities of scientists, learners, and researchers to understand the dynamics of the evolution of scientific domains in a wide range of scientific fields, science studies, and science policy evaluation and planning. We ...
We review the main components of autonomous scientific discovery, and how they lead to the concept of a Robot Scientist. This is a system which uses techniques from artificial intelligence to automate all aspects of the scientific discovery process: it generates hypotheses from a computer model of the domain, designs experiments to test these hypotheses, runs the physical experiments using robotic systems, analyses and interprets the resulting data, and repeats the cycle. We describe our two prototype Robot Scientists: Adam and Eve. Adam has recently proven the potential of such systems by identifying twelve genes responsible for catalysing specific reactions in the metabolic pathways of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This work has been formally recorded in great detail using logic. We argue that the reporting of science needs to become fully formalised and that Robot Scientists can help achieve this. This will make scientific information more reproducible and reusable, and promote the integration

Hospitalization is not on my list of things to do, especially with hourly insulin shots that may or may not work, and which could (improperly applied) bring on coma, insulin shock, or even death. I know, these words seem fatalistic, but that is my other choice. So, Ill wait this out, be a good girl, and I will get well soon, Im sure.. Ive done some thinking about all of this, since my attack began last Thursday. I should NOT have waited until Monday to do a call into my doctor. Earlier treatment might just have nipped this in the bud, a lot sooner. So I have only myself to blame. But still, why this attack? Why did God not simply lift me from this ailment, and deliver me before I even got it? I have the evidence of His intimate caring.. Every day He gives to me.

Another unpublished experiment was carried out in 1960. Researchers at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor were given eighteen laboratory rats. These were divided into three groups: one group received cornflakes and water; a second group was given the cardboard box that the cornflakes came in and water; the control group received rat chow and water. The rats in the control group remained in good health throughout the experiment. The rats eating the box became lethargic and eventually died of malnutrition. The rats receiving the cornflakes and water died before the rats that were eating the box! (The first box rat died the day the last cornflake rat died.) Furthermore, before death, the cornflakes-eating rats developed aberrant behavior, threw fits, bit each other and finally went into convulsions. Autopsy revealed dysfunction of the pancreas, liver and kidneys and degeneration of the nerves of the spine, all signs of insulin shock.2 The startling conclusion of this study was that there was ...

An inquiry into the system of the laws which govern the process of history and the effects which historical events produce on the life of society is one of the most important needs of our society at the present juncture. An insight into this system is essential for the continued vitality of our cultural revolution and its extension to other peoples of the world.. There is no doubt if a society wants to free itself from its environmental limitations, suffocating atmosphere and overbearing conditions, it must know to what extent societies are compulsorily regulated by their circumstances and how they can overcome their limitations in this regard.. What is important is only to find out the ways and means of overcoming the limitations and hinderances. It is immaterial to us whether this discovery is called a scientific discovery or is given the name of a religious, philosophical, gnostic or some other kind of unravelling. Now let us see what Ayatullah Sadr has said on this subject from the ...

Hi, my names Daniel Locke, welcome to my studio. Im a graphic novelist and artist. Im absolutely fascinated by scientists and scientific discovery, and since 2010 Ive pursued projects that have brought into contact with a wide range of researchers, in hugely diverse settings.. Much of my practice has been brief based. I often get employed to help communicate a specific set of issues or ideas. This residency is exciting for many different reasons to me, not least because it offers a period of time where I can explore ideas I have encountered during other projects, that perhaps were tangential to the task at hand but non-the-less incredibly interesting. I intend to make a series of new illustrated narratives that will explore the ideas I have collected. The narratives will form the basis of a short animation, at least the beginning of one..

Magnetic Seizure Therapy (MST) is a novel form of treatment that uses high intensity magnetic field pulses to stimulate the brain and induce a seizure as a therapeutic intervention for patients with depression resistant to antidepressant medication, known as Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD). Preliminary research has shown that MST is an effective therapy for this population, with response and remission rates comparable to that of Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). For this project, Dr. Blumberger and his team are using a double-blind, randomized non-inferiority trial to compare both the cognitive adverse effects and the response and remission rates of MST to a modified form of ECT that uses ultra-brief pulse width stimulation, in 264 patients with TRD. Although ECT is a highly effective treatment, it is associated with societal stigma and significant negative side effects on memory. The memory side effects impair the retrieval of recent memories and the formation of new memories. MST does not ...
Safety Concerns of Chelation Therapy are: Kidney Toxicity, Excessive Removal of Calcium, Inflammation of a vein, Insulin shock and hypoglycemia, and Congestive heart failure. It is generally believed that chelation therapy, administered by an experienced therapist at the proper doses is very safe. A very large study, which had been monitored by the friends and foes of chelation therapy, found that EDTA administered in the proper dosage was no more toxic than a placebo.
As early as the 16th century, agents to induce seizures were used to treat psychiatric conditions. In 1785, the therapeutic use of seizure induction was documented in the London Medical Journal.[1][88][89] As to its earliest antecedents one doctor claims 1744 as the dawn of electricitys therapeutic use, as documented in the first issue of Electricity and Medicine. Treatment and cure of hysterical blindness was documented eleven years later. Benjamin Franklin wrote that an electrostatic machine cured a woman of hysterical fits. In 1801, Giovanni Aldini used galvanism to treat patients suffering from various mental disorders.[90] G.B.C. Duchenne, the mid-19th century Father of Electrotherapy, said its use was integral to a neurological practice.[91]. In the second half of the 19th century, such efforts were frequent enough in British asylums as to make it notable.[92]. Convulsive therapy was introduced in 1934 by Hungarian neuropsychiatrist Ladislas J. Meduna who, believing mistakenly that ...
Much of the therapy for insanity was experimental, and a number of treatments likely inflicted a great deal of harm and discomfort on patients. Something like Pilgrims Tub Therapy (see last post) may have resulted in a waterlogged and weakened patient, but would not have otherwise imposed great trauma, particularly since the treatment was almost always voluntary. On the other hand, shock treatments could be both violent and frightening.. In the 1930s, psychiatrists began experimenting with various kinds of treatments that threw the body into convulsions. For some reason-and they did not know why-convulsions often helped patients with depression and other problems. In 1933, Ladislaus (also Ladislas) von Meduna began inducing convulsions through intravenous drugs. He had noticed that schizophrenia and epilepsy could not seem to co-exist, and believed that controllable convulsions would cure schizophrenics.. ...

Barbaturex morrisoni was a rather large, plant-eating reptile that roamed the planet some 36-40 million years ago. B. morrisoni was as large a Dalmatian [source: Huffington Post]. The king of the lizards lived during a period in Earths history when temperatures were skyrocketing, and, indeed, scientists think the warm temps contributed to B. morrisonis unusual success as a big, herbivorous lizard.. ...

Artificial intelligence that helps make scientific discoveries needs to get better at admitting its uncertainty, Genevera Allen says.
All science is creation science. Science is possible precisely because God upholds the universe in a consistent way that the human mind can (at least partially) understand. If the universe were merely the result of chance, then there would be no reason to expect it to obey laws. Even granting the existence of laws, there would be no reason to think that such laws would be mathematical in nature or understandable by the human mind. Nor would there be any reason to expect any kind of consistency in those laws over space and time. (Why would the same laws that apply on earth today also apply on Mars next Thursday?). The existence and properties of laws of nature are the expectation of the biblical creationist, but make no sense in an evolutionary worldview. Therefore, the fact that science is possible is a powerful confirmation of biblical creation. Even when evolutionists make a scientific discovery, they are inadvertently confirming creation because such a discovery would not be possible if God ...

No, its not proven. Science has not been able to do much with the subject to give a yes answer either. The negative answer seems more accurate (at this time) but there have been many scientific discoveries that would have been impossible to prove or perfect just a few decades ago that are now part of our everyday routine. If a true skeptic is someone who is looking for the truth, why not look for people who make extrodinary claims and pick their brains until there is nothing left to pick? Its not up to skeptics, its up to science to tell the person making the claim that they are whackjobs. It seems that the JREF has put that power in their hands and taken it away from science. Not that its a bad thing, as we can see that there are more rip off artists out there than perhaps people with insight. That sure is a fact that has been proven time and time again by skeptics ...
Other examples are travel throughout space based on the latest scientific discoveries and visualisation of the research into autonomous systems carried out within the Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program, WASP, of which Anders Ynnerman and his research group are an important part..

Sometime in the next 15 to 30 years, the Kenyan-born paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey expects scientific discoveries will have accelerated to the point that even the skeptics can accept it.
IN one of the most beautiful of all the shining pages of his History of the Spanish Conquest in America, Sir Arthur Helps describes the way in which, through some fitness of the season, whether in great scientific discoveries or in the breaking into light of some great moral cause, the same processes are going on in many minds, and it seems as if they communicated with each other invisibly. We may imagine that all good powers aid the new light and brave and wise thoughts about it float aloft in the atmosphere of thought as downy seeds are borne over the fruitful face of the earth (vol. iii, page 113). The thinker who elaborates a new system of philosophy deeper and more comprehensive than any yet known to mankind, though he may work in solitude, nevertheless does not work alone. The very fact which makes his great scheme of thought a success and not a failure is the fact that it puts into definite and coherent shape the ideas which many people are more or less vaguely and loosely ...
