For instance, in this article the military states that when a soldier is experiencing sighs of mental trouble or PTSD they will move him to a location not far from the battle field to rest for a couple days and speak with someone about their traumatic experiences and probably receive some medication. I think it is good when mental issues like these are recognized by higher ranking officials and they realize that some help needs to be enforced; although I don’t think enough is being done to let the soldier properly heal before he is sent back into battle. I think it would be more useful to completely remove a soldier suffering from PTSD from any dangerous war like area, in order to help decrease their anxiety level. Give them a psychiatrist to speak with and help with their traumatic experiences. Then when they show signs of mental stability send them back.

Running Head: Theory Critique Hart Theory Critique: Archibald Hart The Anxiety Cure Jennifer Hooker Liberty University COUN 507 Diane Powel 12/09/12 Summary of Content Dr. Archibald Hart’s book The Anxiety Cure is often presented as a self-help book. Dr. Hart introduces a guideline that would assist a person in determining the causes and prevention of anxiety and ways to cope with it. Dr. Hart wants to raise awareness on the growing effects of anxiety is now one of the major emotional disorders at this time (Hart, 1999). Stress can often be unpredictable and difficult to avoid, however it can end up leading to depression or an anxiety disorder, which could negatively affect the progress of living a healthy life. Dr. Hart provides examples of different techniques that can be utilized when coping with anxiety without having to rely on the use of medication.
“People with Generalized Anxiety Disorder report that the anxiety that they experience cause substantial interference with their lives and they need a significant dosage of medications to control their symptoms.” (Gerow and Chatmon 2013, p. 258). To try and help Mr. Hudson with his disorder I’m going to try two methods of treatment. The first method would be a psychoactive drug therapy. I will have him try an antianxiety drug called Equanil, a muscle relaxant for his extreme muscle tension. According to Gerow and Chatmon, “When muscular tension is reduced, a person usually reports feeling calm and at ease” (p. 281).
There is a fine line with regard to the status of a patient’s health, the patient’s state of mind, and the exhaustion of alternative means for pain regulation. For decades, our country has debated good death and its implementation, surely it will be discussed at length for decades to come. History conveys the outcome of previous decisions, both good and bad. Hopefully, others will not suffer in vain while waiting for reasonable decisions and legislature to come
Then only I understood that patient is running an event of SVT. Even though we were successful in reviving the patient, he had to be transferred to ICU for a day. This incident always reminds me that if I was trained to think critically and quickly on my feet as a BSN is trained, I could have avoided the Rapid Response Code event. Thus, I believe earning BSN would help me to think critically if such situation shall arise. As one can see, there are several differences in competencies for ADN and BSN nurse.
I came to Chestnut Grove today to talk to you about maturity. I matured a lot when the doctors told me that I might have soft tissue sarcoma which is a type of cancer that affects the bone, joints, and soft tissue. I learned to appreciate my family more because if it wasn’t for them I would not have been able to do much around the house. My mom and dad continued to work twelve hour shifts every day and still make it back in time for my appointments at Wake Forest Baptist hospital which is all the way in Winston Salem and cancer visits are not cheap so they also had to give up a lot of money for that. My brother was really little at the time but he still did his best to help me with anything I needed, like getting me a drink or if I left something in my room he would go get it so I
In order for symptoms to exist they must seriously interfere with leading a normal life. Symptoms include; Reliving the ordeal through a nightmare or flashback, Feeling that one can never relax, and must be on guard all the time to protect oneself, trouble sleeping, feeling irritable, overreacting when startled, angry outbursts or trouble concentrating. According to the 2004 census there was 57.7 million people diagnosed with PTSD in the United States. That adds up to be one out of every seventeen people are diagnosed with PTSD, and with that it turns out to be fairly common. Treatment might work through cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, and/or exposure therapy, in which the person gradually and repeatedly re-lives the frightening experience under controlled conditions to help him or her work through the trauma.
It is hard, however, to get through each day while being a sufferer of PTSD. There are many treatments available for post traumatic disorder. "Two SSRIs [selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors] are approved for treatment of PTSD. There is also definitive evidence for the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy [CBT], including prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is somewhat controversial but also supported by clinical trial data” (Kelly, 2006).
PTSD is diagnosed by a mental health professional only after the veteran has displayed PTSD symptoms for longer than one month and the symptoms are effecting or interfering with the veteran’s daily life. Most soldiers who disclose feelings of PTSD are glad they did so, but nearly half perceived at least one negative response from a doctor or health care provider they told (Leibowitz, et. al., 2008). Ergo, it is not always easy for a veteran to accept PTSD treatment so be prepared to encourage by letting him know that scientist are continually working on developing and improving ways to cope with PTSD. In 2010, research suggests that therapy administered within a certain time frame after the traumatic event may enhance recovery (Mofils, Raio, Johnson, LeDoux & Phelps, 2010 Jan 7,463(7277)).
