The most common entrapment neuropathy symptoms, the diagnosis of CTS, is determined by examination findings and by means of the results of electro-diagnostic test. With an increase in disease severity, trap neuropathy, whose symptoms are more pronounced at night, negatively affects the daily life of the person. Deterioration in sleep quality may cause depression and anxiety. Conflicting results have been found in the studies related to these findings. However, no study was found in which daytime sleepiness was evaluated in terms of CTS. The investigators aim in this study is to evaluate the relationship between CTS severity and depression, anxiety, sleep quality and daytime sleepiness.
As of December 2019, the global pandemic of COVID-19 has spread rapidly throughout the world, putting healthcare staff at the frontline. In this context, several factors leading to the appearance of psychiatric symptoms have emerged : work overload, fear of being infected or of infecting, exhaustion… (The Lancet, 2020) Indeed, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depressive symptoms, anxiety symptoms, insomnia and increased stress have been reported (Rossi et al., 2020). Furthermore, the increased anxiety and depression symptoms and stress associated with the COVID-19 pandemic may increase the risk of suicide in this already high-risk population. For example, suicidal ideation has been reported in up to 5% of healthcare workers in the United States (Young et al., 2021). It is therefore essential to evaluate the incidence of psychiatric disorders (e.g. PTSD, depression, suicide) and their associated risk factors among the hospital staff. To do so, Montpellier University Hospital healthcare staff was asked their mental state during the first wave of COVID-19.
This project aimed to test the efficacy of a telehealth-administered placebo without deception intervention on stress, anxiety, and depression related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants were randomized into two groups (open-label placebo vs. no-treatment control). All participants received information on the impact of COVID-19 on psychological health. Participants in the open-label placebo group were instructed to watch an informational video on the beneficial effects of placebos without deception, remotely interact with an experimenter, and take open-label placebo pills twice a day for two weeks. Participants in the no-treatment control group did not receive any intervention. Instead, participants met with an experimenter and reported on their psychological and physical health. The investigators predicted that the placebo without deception group would exhibit substantially reduced stress, depression, and anxiety compared to a no-treatment control group.
The aim of the study is to compare the effects of the self-regulation (neurofeedback) of the fMRI signal of the prefrontal cortex in depression to ones of more conventional non-pharmacological treatment, primarily, psychotherapy.
This study was planned to examine the effect of aerobic exercises on depression in geriatric individuals with a diagnosis of depression.
The effects of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic on health, economy and social network has an impact on mental health, specially students. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a brief online mindfulness, compassion and intercare based intervention in medicine students in Santiago de Chile. Randomized controlled trial was conducted. Enrolled participants were randomly assigned to 1) a mindfulness, compassion and intercare based intervention, 2) a psychoeducational intervention or 3) waiting list. Both intervention lasted 1 hour per week for 4 weeks. Academic flexibility, breaks and individual psychological help was offered to the whole group. An online assessment of well being, anxiety and depression symptoms was completed at the beginning, 1 month and 3 month.
The purpose of this investigation is to conduct a randomized trial comparing a web-based Mindful Mood Balance for Moms course without coaching support to waitlist control among pregnant or early parenting women with depression histories.
Starting from December 2019, the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus-2 (SARS-COV-2) disease spread rapidly from China into the world, with about two Mio cases confirmed around the world. In Switzerland, more than 26'000 cases have been confirmed so far, and health authorities declared in March the needs for social isolation and have banned visits to hospitalized patients and to nursing home residents. Loneliness and isolation is a significant concern for the elderly patients as well as for their families that may significantly affect physical and mental health in both. SILVER aims to evaluate the role of programmed video calls with families: - on mood, anxiety, fear of death and pain perception in patients hospitalized or in nursing homes during the SARS-COV-2 pandemic. - in relieving the familiar caregiver anxiety and fear of death of others - in relieving the professional caregiver anxiety. SILVER is an international study involving both acute, rehabilitation geriatric units and nursing homes; we will enroll all the patients present in the participating centers. Patients will be allowed to chose between video and phone calls, the following dimensions will be evaluated: - Delirium risk: using the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) - Mood: using the 5-item Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) - Anxiety: using the Clinical Anxiety Scale (GAS). - Fear of death (self and others): using the Collett-Lester scale. In parallel, health professionals and family caregivers will be evaluated for anxiety at baseline and every week after intervention set-up by the Clinical Anxiety Scale (CAS). Family caregivers will also be evaluated with the fear of death scale (sub-scale fear of death of others). Finally, to evaluate the appreciation for video call communication in patients and caregivers we will use a Likert scale.
The interest of pulmonary rehabilitation for patients who underwent lung resection for cancer remains controversial. The investigators studied the effects of the RR and its impact on quality of life and level of anxiety and depression in patients. In 2011 and 2012 , an RR was proposed to the patients referred to our center after lung resection for cancer. Patients were assessed at entry and departure by 6minutes walk test , a visual analog pain scale , a quality of life questionnaire ( EORTC QLQ C30 ) and an anxiety questionnaire and Depression (HAD) . These same questionnaires were mailed 6 months after the end of the pulmonary rehabilitation .
Orthopedic residents, like all other healthcare professionals, face unique challenges during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The rapid spread of COVID-19 has forced healthcare systems around the world to adapt. As in many other specialties, it has led to many changes in the training of orthopedic residents including restructuring of surgical training, a reduction in elective surgery cases, and re-assignment of residents to COVID-19-related clinical duties. As a result, the standard training curriculum has been interrupted and the number of surgical cases has decreased, limiting the ability of the residents to meet the range and number of patient follow-up and treatment requirements set by the Turkish Orthopedics and Traumatology Education Council (TOTEK). The already stressful work environment of orthopedic residents has become more stressful and anxious with the COVID-19 pandemic. There are no well-designed survey studies that have shown the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on orthopedic resident education and well-being from the resident's perspective. Therefore, the purpose of this nationwide survey study was to document and analyze the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the real-life experiences of orthopedic residents in Turkey.
