Sharing and Skinning Furry Things — Songs or Stories

If people giving anaesthetics are still using a bunch of different techniques, it’s fair to assume that all those options have their own pros and cons. You could argue that’s true for most of anaesthesia but this post is going to look at one situation and one option: airway endoscopy and spontaneous breathing. It’s by…

What I learnt this week: Let’s consider ‘appropriateness’ inappropriate #WILTW

I saw two children this week who were, by any measure of illness severity, both well. They were not in discomfort,  were both interested in their surroundings and had no derangement of their physiology (i.e normal heart and breathing rates). While some would have you believe their presence in an Emergency Department was inappropriate this was not the case. In fact one of the children attended on my specific instructions.

Does mindfulness work?

Mindfulness has been defined as the process of paying attention to the present moment in a non-judgmental manner.1 In the early stages of mindfulness training, awareness of breathing is typically used as an attentional anchor to regulate ruminative thinking,2 but mindfulness encompasses much more than observing the breath. It derives from Buddhist practice and has been the subject of empirical investigation since the late 1970s, with over 700 scientific papers on mindfulness published in 2014.3

Emotion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Emotion, in everyday speech, is any relatively brief conscious experience characterized by intense mental activity and a high degree of pleasure or displeasure.[1][2] Scientific discourse has drifted to other meanings and there is no consensus on a definition. Emotion is often intertwined with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation.[3] In some theories, cognition is an important aspect of emotion. Those acting primarily on emotion may seem as if they are not thinking, but mental processes are still essential, particularly in the interpretation of events. For example, the realization of danger and subsequent arousal of the nervous system (e.g. rapid heartbeat and breathing, sweating, muscle tension) is integral to the experience of fear. Other theories, however, claim that emotion is separate from and can precede cognition.

Prenatal treatments for babies with congenital diaphragmatic hernia | Cochrane

A congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a hole in the diaphragm, the muscle that helps with breathing and separates the chest and abdomen. This defect can allow the liver and bowel to move to the chest cavity and interfere with lung development, affecting lung and heart function in newborn babies. At birth, respiratory insufficiency and pulmonary hypertension contribute to poor outcomes. About one in every 3000 babies may be affected and the problem can be diagnosed during a routine mid-pregnancy ultrasound at around 20 weeks. For babies born with a CDH, surgery in early life is necessary, but even with new surgical techniques there can be a poor outlook and many long-term medical problems. Treatments are now possible in pregnancy. Interventions described to date include maternal antenatal corticosteroid administration and prenatal tracheal occlusion to improve lung growth and maturity by obstruction of the fetal trachea. This increases airway pressure by preventing secreted lung fluid from leaving the lungs resulting in growth and expansion of the lungs. There are potential side effects and complications for the mother with this procedure as the uterus and amniotic sac are entered in order to gain access to the unborn baby.
