Sickle Cell Disease Causes Much More Pain Than Thought: Internal Medicine Report
 
02:26
A new prospective study of pain in adults with sickle cell disease finds that daily pain is far more prevalent and severe than previous large studies have indicated. Authors of the study gave diaries to 232 sickle cell disease patients to record daily pain and indicate whether they used hospital emergency or unscheduled ambulatory care for their pain. Previous estimates about sickle cell pain assumed that if patients didn't go to the hospital or seek medical care for pain, they didn't have pain. Previous sickle cell treatments also were based on the number of visits to hospitals to relieve pain.

Sleep Deprivation Can Lead to Impaired Insulin Response in Fat Cells
 
01:37
After just four days of sleep restriction, young, lean volunteers' total-body insulin response decreased by an average of 16 percent, and insulin sensitivity of fat cells decreased by 30 percent. This reduction is akin to taking the fat cell functioning of a healthy person down to that of an obese or diabetic patient.

Older Adults and Antipsychotic Drugs
 
01:31
Millions of Americans suffer from dementia and many are given antipsychotic drugs for behaviors such as agitation or verbal and physical aggression. But according to a study published in Annals of Internal Medicine adults with antipsychotic prescriptions had a higher risk for death than adults without these prescriptions. The use of older (also called conventional) antipsychotic medications was associated with higher risk for death than the use of newer (also called atypical) drugs. Excess risk was evident at 30 days and seemed to continue to 180 days. The six-year study looked at health and death records of more than 27,000 adults older than 66 with dementia. The researchers could not be certain that they had accounted for all other possible causes for their findings other than prescriptions. The exact cause of the deaths was not known. Examples of conventional drugs are chlorpromazine and haloperidol. Examples of atypical medications are olanzapine, risperidone, and quetiapine.

American College of Physicians: Inspirational Stories from Practicing Internists: Nirav Shah, MD
 
02:31
When it comes to New York City, there are two kinds of people—those who can live there and those who cannot. To be a true New Yorker, you have to thrive on the hustle and bustle, the never-ending cycle of action. There is never a dull day in NYC, and the people who make it their home would not have it any other way. That is how Dr. Nirav Shah feels about being a New Yorker. It is also how he feels about being an internist. "I enjoy being in the middle of the action, dealing with the most important issues facing medicine today," said Shah. "Right now, internal medicine is the best place—the most exciting place—to be in medicine, because we are on the threshold of significant change and we are already seeing it happen."

Massage Therapy and Advanced Cancer Patients
 
01:59
Massage therapy may have immediate benefits on pain and mood among patients with advanced cancer. In a randomized trial of 380 advanced cancer patients at 15 U.S. hospices, improvement in pain and mood immediately following treatment was greater with massage than with simple touch. Pain and depressed mood are common problems for patients with advanced cancer. While drug therapies can reduce symptoms, they dont always work and often have troublesome side effects. Researchers think that massage may interrupt the cycle of distress, offering brief physical and psychological benefits. However, researchers caution that while massage may offer some immediate relief for patients with advanced cancer, the effects do not last over time, demonstrating the need for more effective strategies to manage pain at the end of life.

American College of Physicians: Inspirational Stories: Christopher Mays, MD
 
02:31
As a teenager, Dr. Christopher Mays had long blond hair that hung to the middle of his back, little academic ambition, and notions of becoming a rock star or professional athlete. But by the time he graduated from high school, that boy was long gone, replaced by a reflective, deeply faithful, and purposeful young man who dreamed of doing something useful with his life. That something turned out to be internal medicine. The catalyst for the transformation was a failing kidney which landed him in the hospital for four major operations between the ages of 12 and 18. The experience was trying yet defining, as it served as his introduction to the field of medicine. "I was in the hospital a lot," he says, "and so I ended up developing a relationship with my surgeon. I liked him and knowing him had a positive effect on me. Around the same time I also began to grow in other ways. Religious faith became important to me, and I saw in medicine the opportunity to serve people and utilize my faith as well."
