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 ...

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.

A7. The Genomes to Life Initiative (GTL) will build upon the success of the human, animal, plant and bacterial genome programs as a foundation for scientific discovery of the fundamental, comprehensive and systematic understanding of life at the molecular level. Stated in another way, DNA sequences are universal codes that specify the components of all known living organisms (called proteins), but it is these proteins, each specifically built according to a unique DNA code, that are the engines, the building blocks and the signaling mechanisms-the essence of life itself. The GTL initiative seeks to utilize the vast amount of sequence information now becoming available and build upon it using new techniques in molecular and structural biology, computations and imaging to understand and predict how genomes are truly brought to life. A specific focus of the initiative is in understanding simple bacteria (the microbial world). This focus will enable mission-oriented benefits in areas that ...

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.. ...

on computational discovery is about to appear, although fewer papers were received than the editors wished (Simon, Valdes-Perez & Sleeman, forthcoming). Data-mining in scientific databases is an active area of research, as are other computational approaches applied to individual sciences, e.g., intelligent systems in molecular biology. It is becoming more difficult to locate computational discovery work because much of it is published in scientific journals--a good sign that the methods of producing results of interest to practicing scientists. Buchanan (e.g., Lee et al., 1996) continues work on rule induction applied to various scientific databases. Simon is studying the difficult problems of constructing diagrammatic representations (Larkin & Simon, 1987; Qin & Simon, 1995) and of modeling relations between diagrammatic and verbal reasoning (Tabachneck-Schijf, Leonardo, & Simon, 1996). Zytkow continues to work on various aspects of discovery, including analyzing the components needed for an ...

Jim Morrison, the inspiration behind the storied 70s rock band The Doors, might be dead (is he?), but he still lives on, and not just in his music. In June, scientists named a new species of lizard for the self-proclaimed, hard-rocking Lizard King.. 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.. ...
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 ...

Are you one of those people who puts your head down at night, setting your morning alarm clock, cringing as you calculate how many hours of sleep youll get that night? Do you think losing an hour or two of sleep isnt a big deal or that you can "catch up later"? Do you think youre immune to the effects of caffeine? Matthew Walker is here to tell you just how wrong you are, making scientific discoveries accessible to the average arrogant reader, or rather, sleeper, who thinks little of popping Tylenol PMs, or pulling an all-nighter, and even less of the benefits of a good nights rest. An influential voice, Walker will be echoing in your head as you try to tell yourself one more episode in your Netflix binge wont drain you the next day. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost. ...

1. Dear ladies and gentlemen, Dear students, It gives me great pleasure to take part in this meeting, so I would like to thank the organizing committee for inviting me to this lecture. I am going to talk about the evolution of the nervous system. But firstly I need to point out that this title does not imply that the evolution of the body and the evolution of the organs are separate things. 2. I think that one of the most important scientific discoveries this year is presented in Yang J et al.
Drug resistant pathogens are an ongoing plague for the medical field and efforts to find original drugs and other solutions are slow going.

Training? Im an autodidact with a certified IQ north of 150 (MGCT and SAT tests). I had a college level vocabulary at 9 years of age and was reading everything about science I could get my hands on starting a few years before that. Ive continued on that course for over 40 years. In my spare time I became a computer design engineer and self-made millionaire. I quit my day job after making my third million (about 6 years ago) so I can concentrate on fun subjects like science that has little or nothing to do with computers (if I can help it), politics, and religion. So basically all the scientific discovery of the last 40 years important enough to make it into the pages of Scientific American I read about at the time it was discovered. For the last 13 years though Ive had a broadband connection to the internet and my sources expanded exponentially. For the last 6 years I havent been burdened with being a computer whiz kid and my time to learn new things has expanded not exponentially but at ...
Modern technologies are enabling scientists to collect extraordinary amounts of complex and sophisticated data across a huge range of scales like never before. With this onslaught of data, we can allow the focal point to shift from data collection to data analysis. Unfortunately, lack of standardized sharing mechanisms and practices often make reproducing or extending scientific results very difficult. With the creation of data organization structures and tools which drastically improve code portability, we now have the opportunity to design such a framework for communicating extensible scientific discoveries. Our proposed solution leverages these existing technologies and standards, and provides an accessible and extensible model for reproducible research, called science in the cloud (SIC). Exploiting scientific containers, cloud computing, and cloud data services, we show the capability to compute in the cloud and run a web service that enables intimate interaction with the tools and data
Im sorry, Ive always been a big supporter of a lot of great scientific discoveries or experiments, but to honestly think that our universe, our world, heck even our own human bodies, as complex as they are, came out of RANDOM mutations over a period of generations without the help of some creator entity, is just downright silly. Im sure that if you do some research, youll find that even evolution as a theory still has flaws and cant explain everything. In fact, the one biggest misconception about evolution that Ive found from both evolutionists and christians, is that they both seem to think that evolution is supposed to explain the origin of EVERYTHING (our universe, our planet etc.) when that is downright false. Last I read, the title said that it was the "Origin of species" and NOT "The origin of how ALL came to be ...

Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells-taken without her knowledge in 1951-became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henriettas cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family cant afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew ...

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..
