Stay human in medicine: Lessons from The House of God
In 1978, under the pseudonym Samuel Shem, psychiatrist Stephen Bergman published “The House of God,” an iconic novel drawn from his medical internship in Boston in the early 1970s. Earlier this year, Dr. Bergman spoke at the commencement of the New York University School of Medicine. With his permission, the following is adapted from those remarks. I began writing The House of God as a catharsis, to make sense of what seemed like the worst year of my life. These are times we all have each day, finding ourselves doing things — or not doing things we should have done — and we say to ourselves, “Hey...

Did Adnan do It?
I figured I'd join the bandwagon of bloggers talking about The Serial Podcast.   I'm taking a break from psychiatry for the moment.  If you haven't been listening, Sarah Koenig is orchestrating a year-long investigation into a 1999 murder. 17-year old Adnan Syed was convicted of killing his ex-girl friend and there are a few things that have caught Koenig's attention about the case: an alibi witness was never interviewed, Adnan was a good kid who followed the rules and was no one's pick as a would-be murderer,  and there was no physical evidence.  Koenig has been hunting down every detail, intervie...

The Season of the Witch
During the VN era, there was a song with the line, 'Must be the Season of the Witch,' a haunting rock song. Now we have the Michael Brown shooting, and riots, the misfired UVA rape allegations, and the Garner death; and injustices in some parts real and in other parts projected out of the preexisting anger of the accuser are played out in the reactions of victim identification. During VN we had the 'specter' of communism, and now I see the 'Season of the Witch' and see this time similarly. I wish we had let the Vietnamese vote to decide their country's status in 1956 but my feelings about the war have further thoughts, and...

The Shooting at Sandy Hook report: 4 things we can learn from it
The recently released report, Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, from Connecticut’s Office of the Child Advocate offers a searing in-depth account of the holes in our mental health care system. The report is careful to point out that no causative link exists between their findings and the events at Sandy Hook. However, this in-depth investigation offers an opportunity, if we are able to hear and take action on its recommendations, to begin to fix a system that without significant attention may lead to an ever growing epidemic of serious mental illness.

Questioning the Rules
Good morning.  I'm sending you to look at two articles today, both by or about people who have been on our blog before.Over in the New York Times, Robin Weiss has a fabulous article about her work with a patient who wanted to know details of her personal life, "The 'rules' of psychotherapy."  Dr. Weiss talks about how revealing such information goes against the 'rules' of psychotherapy, and she discusses reasons why she decided that in this case, it made sense to break the rules.  She writes: As therapy continued with her, I heard how flat and tinny I sounded whenever I attempted to analyze what was going on...

Can We Prevent Psychosis?
Each year, about 500,000 young people in this country seek help for symptoms that resemble the prodrome of a psychotic illness. They are not actively psychotic, but they may be struggling in school, dealing with odd thoughts, and becoming socially isolated. Some describe brief hallucinations or paranoid ideas. Many have become “basement kids,” playing video games alone most of the week and losing interest in the world above ground. Most of these youth will, ultimately, be fine. But about one in three of those identified as high risk will have a first psychotic episode within three years.1 (Source: NIMH Directors Blog)

Mayo Clinic Sued By Hellmann's Maker For False Advertising.
Rochester, MN --  Mayo Clinic was sued Monday by a Unilever, the maker of  Hellmann's mayonnaise, claiming the hospital's actual brick and mortar is not made of egg and oil, an FDA requirement since 1957 for any product that wants to call itself mayonnaise.   The lawsuit comes less than a week after the multinational behemoth  sued Just Mayo -- a small San Francisco start-up with a vegan alternative to mayonnaise -- for using mayo in their name despite not having the required egg and oil mixture.Mayo Clinic sued for false advertisingUnilever, which claims consumers equate mayo to mayonnaise,  is as...

Later this week, more than 30,000 neuroscientists will descend on Washington, DC, for the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. The meeting will likely reveal extraordinary progress in studies of brain structure and function, with thousands of posters and short presentations from a diverse crowd, ranging from excited graduate students to the venerable leaders of brain science. Amidst the excitement and sheer volume of activity, it’s easy to forget about a sobering set of recent reports that as much as 80 percent of the science from academic labs, even science published in the best journals, cannot be replicated.

Algal virus associated with altered human cognitive functions
Many well-known human viruses, including poliovirus, rabies virus, West Nile virus, can infect cells of the nervous system, leading to alterations in the function of that organ. Could a virus that infects algae also cause human neurological alterations? Chloroviruses are large DNA-containing viruses that infect unicellular algae called zoochlorellae (pictured: image credit, ViralZone). Unexpectedly, chlorovirus DNA sequences were found in the oropharynx of 40 of 92 individuals (43.5%) who had no known physical or psychiatric illness. The clinical specimens had been obtained as part of a study of cognitive function, and it ...

Physician suicide 101: Secrets, lies and solutions
This article adapted from a lecture presented by Pamela Wible, MD, at the 2014 American Academy of Family Physicians Scientific Assembly in Washington DC. Why did you go to medical school? I’m a family physician born into a family of physicians. My parents warned me not to pursue medicine. So I went to medical school. Ten years later, I’m unhappy with the direction of my profession (and I’m not the only one). Then I get this crazy idea: what if I ask for help? Not from the profession that wounded me. Just from random people on the street. So I hold a town meeting and ask patients to help me — design an ideal me...

What Does Tolerance for Ambiguity Look Like?
By: Marie Caulfield, PhD, manager of data operations and services, Association of American Medical Colleges, Washington, DC Last year my daughter was admitted to a teaching hospital with a kidney infection. The medical student and residents on her treatment team recommended an MRI to rule out a possible anatomical cause. Dr. R., the attending physician, guided them through the case: the medical history did not suggest an anatomical problem, treatment would be the same regardless of the findings, and scans are uncomfortable and expensive. Dr. R. firmly said, “No MRI.” The medical student was clearly uncomfortable with l...

Cognitive behavioral therapy: Why parents should be involved
While studying for my recertification exam as required by the American Board of Pediatrics, I came across this question:  A 7-year-old girl is having difficulty establishing relationships with other children despite repeated opportunities to do so. The girl prefers to stay near her mother or her teacher and will avoid other children. She sometimes cries and can be difficult to calm down after being dropped off at school, so her mother frequently remains in the classroom for a few minutes before quietly leaving. On days when morning transitions to school are significantly difficult, her mother will allow her to stay home...

What is a social admit to the hospital?   A social admission is generally accepted by healthcare professionals to be a patient with no acute medical needs that is brought into a hospital because no safe discharge arrangements could be made at the time they presented.

They might have a non surgical fracture limiting their mobility or a family refusing to take them home. Most social admissions occur after-hours when community services are un...

After the latest school shooting, social media accounts should be monitored
In the wake of the latest school shooting in the state of Washington, much attention has been paid to the shooter’s (Jaylen Fryberg’s) Twitter account. In fact, after a school shooting, social media sites are typically the first place that people go to learn about the assailant.

A civil war in psychiatry: Is there common ground?
There will never be any compromise acceptable to the die hard defenders of psychiatry or to its most fanatic critics. Some inflexible psychiatrists are blind biological reductionists who assume that genes are destiny and that there is a pill for every problem.

Primary care physicians: 7 tips to treat health anxiety
Before the Internet age, people with excessive and irrational worries about their health (we called them “hypochondriacs”) went to their doctors for reassurance. Today these patients still schedule appointment — often with exasperating frequency – with their primary care physicians when they’re concerned about an unusual lump or vague symptom.
