HIPAA - Annals of Emergency Medicine
It is true that these stories are not mine to tell and it is true that it undermines my very existence to do so and it is true that there are laws to fight exactly this sort of exposure; exploitation; embarrassment. It is also true that holding onto them for so long in silence makes your shoulders start to sag.

Chills - Wikipedia
> Chills is a feeling of coldness occurring during a high fever, but sometimes is also a common symptom which occurs alone in specific people. It occurs during fever due to the release of cytokines and prostaglandins as part of the inflammatory response, which increases the set point for body temperature in the hypothalamus. The increased set point causes the body temperature to rise (pyrexia), but also makes the patient feel cold or chills until the new set point is reached. Shivering also occurs along with chills because the patient's body produces heat during muscle contraction in a physiological attempt to increase body temperature to the new set point. When it does not accompany a high fever, it is normally a light chill. Sometimes a chill of medium power and short duration may occur during a scare, especially in scares of fear, commonly interpreted like or confused by trembling. Severe chills with violent shivering are called rigors.

Pathogenesis: A New Deck-Building Game | JAMA | JAMA Network
> In Pathogenesis, a deck-building game released in 2017, players assemble microbial pathogens and add virulence factors and microbial defense mechanisms through play to attack human body barrier defenses in tissue, respiratory, and gastrointestinal tracts. As the attacks proceed and players breach the barrier defenses, the body fights back using adaptive and innate immune responses like inflammation, complement, and T cells represented in cards that players also accumulate. Players win when they defeat the tracts’ immune responses (pathogen, virulence, and microbial defense cards overwhelm barrier defense and immune cards) and lose if game play takes too long and physiologic immunity develops.

Drug & Alcohol Dependence; https://ift.tt/2r2ET3B; June 19, 2018 at 02:41PM; ; Buprenorphine is an effective treatment for opioid use disorder and guidelines recommend long term or even life-long treatment (Kraus et al., 2011); however, a majority of patients are interested in eventually tapering off buprenorphine (Kleber, 2007; Winstock et al., 2011). Some patients avoid starting medications altogether due to concern about their ability to eventually taper off (Appel et al., 2004; Peterson et al., 2010). Currently, physicians lack sufficient evidence to answer common patient questions about the frequency and feasibility of discontinuing buprenorphine for stable patients without causing relapse (Amato et al., 2011).

Drug & Alcohol Dependence; https://ift.tt/2r2ET3B; June 19, 2018 at 02:41PM; ; Individuals who misuse opioids experience potentially traumatic events (PTEs) at a markedly high rate (Dore et al., 2012; Mills et al., 2012). Exposure to such events is associated with increased risk for psychopathology including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (Kilpatrick et al., 2013). Indeed, studies examining psychopathology across samples of individuals who report using multiple substances have reported PTSD as the most prevalent disorder (Cottler et al., 1992; Mills et al., 2006), and similar findings have found that opioid misuse is elevated in trauma-exposed samples (McCauley et al., 2009; McCauley et al., 2010; Seal et al., 2012).

Drug & Alcohol Dependence; https://ift.tt/2r2ET3B; June 19, 2018 at 02:41PM; ; Opioid-related emergency department (ED) admissions and deaths have rapidly increased in the United States during the past decade (Rudd et al., 2016). In particular, heroin-related deaths have more than quintupled from 2000 to 2014, as some people have shifted from taking prescription opioids to heroin (Compton et al., 2016; Jones et al., 2015; Martins et al., 2017). For a number of fiscal and practical reasons, data on the status and evolution of heroin use have been of poor quality, which has hampered the ability to halt the epidemic (Humphreys, 2017; Kilmer and Caulkins, 2014; Ruhm, 2017).

Drug & Alcohol Dependence; https://ift.tt/2r2ET3B; June 19, 2018 at 02:41PM; ; Individuals who identify as gay, lesbian, or bisexual experience significantly elevated rates of substance use and substance use disorders (SUD) relative to heterosexuals. Disparities are present at initiation, as sexual minority (SM) youth report younger ages of first use than heterosexual youth (Institute of Medicine, 2011). A meta-analysis of 18 school-based surveys reported that US SM youth had nearly three times the odds of any substance use relative to heterosexual youth, smoking rates 2-3 times higher those of heterosexuals and approximately 1.5 times the odds of marijuana use (Marshall et al., 2008).

Drug & Alcohol Dependence; https://ift.tt/2r2ET3B; June 19, 2018 at 02:41PM; ; With the advent of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, the effects of HIV pose a much smaller threat to mortality (Hessol et al., 2000; Lloyd-Smith et al., 2006). Scholars now attribute the majority of deaths among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) to health risk behaviors, such as smoking (Helleberg et al., 2015). Among those adhering to ARV, the negative impact of smoking upon life expectancy is two times greater than HIV-related factors (Reddy et al., 2016). This is of major concern as nearly 54% of PLWH are reported to smoke cigarettes in the United States compared to 19% in the general population (Park et al., 2016; Mdodo et al., 2015; Pacek et al., 2014).

Drug & Alcohol Dependence; https://ift.tt/2r2ET3B; June 19, 2018 at 02:41PM; ; Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) refers to the deliberate, self-inflicted destruction or alteration of body tissue resulting in immediate damage without a conscious suicidal intent and for purposes not culturally sanctioned (Cipriano et al., 2017). NSSI involves various forms, with self-cutting, head-banging, scratching, and hitting being the four most common types (Cipriano et al., 2017; Skegg, 2005). Although NSSI does not generally cause fatal outcomes, accumulating evidence has shown that NSSI is significantly associated with functional impairment, poor quality of life, premature death, and increased risk of attempted suicide and suicide death (Bergen et al., 2012b; Castellvi et al., 2017; Ribeiro et al., 2016; Zullig, 2016).

Facebook to redirect users searching for opioids to federal crisis help line
STAT - Addiction; https://ift.tt/1n5RA9I; June 19, 2018 at 12:43PM; https://ift.tt/2tjpKfB;

WASHINGTON — Facebook users attempting to purchase opioids or seeking out addiction treatment will be instead be redirected to information about a federal crisis help line, the company announced Tuesday, a major step for an industry leader facing pressure to more aggressively police illicit drug sales on its platform.

The announcement comes a week before an “opioids summit” convened by the Food and Drug Administration to get Facebook and other tech companies, including Facebook, Twitter, and Google, to take additional measures to help curb the nation’s opioid crisis.
