BACKGROUND: Telepsychiatry is becoming more commonplace in the provision of psychiatric care. Most commonly used in the outpatient setting, there is little information available in the literature as to the use of telepsychiatry for inpatient medical/surgical consultation. OBJECTIVE: We review the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's telepsychiatry consultation program that provides consultation to an outlying community-based rural hospital. METHODS: This article examines the 69 telepsychiatry consultations that were performed from November 2014 through February 2016, looking at the patients served, common consultation questions, and patterns of diagnoses and recommendations...

BACKGROUND: The use of constant observers ("sitters") has been common practice in many medical centers to maintain patient safety. RESULTS: A retrospective chart review of patients who required sitters from October 1, 2007 to September 31, 2013 at a large, private hospital serving a multiethnic community showed that the top reasons for sitters include suicide risk, agitation, fall risk, interfering with medical devices, and confusion/disorientation. Sitters were used for a mean of 3...

REVIEW
Mario F Mendez
BACKGROUND: Few publications deal with non-neurogenic language disorders (NNLDs), distinct from psychogenic speech disorders such as psychogenic dysphonia or stuttering. NNLDs are alterations in language owing to psychosomatic preoccupations, conversion disorder, psychiatric disorders, or other psychological reasons. OBJECTIVE: To identify and classify the range of NNLDs and their characteristics. METHODS: This review summarizes the literature on disturbances in language, broadly defined as the use of symbols for communication, which may have a psychogenic or psychiatric etiology...

REVIEW
Faiza Khalid, Awais Aftab, Sumita Khatri
BACKGROUND: In 2008 Food and Drug Administration issued a warning regarding a possible association between leukotriene-modifying agents and suicidality. OBJECTIVE: The warning remains controversial and this review of literature is an attempt to examine the evidence on the matter. METHODS: Literature search on PubMed. RESULTS: The data supporting a relationship between leukotriene-modifying agents and suicidality comes primarily from reviews of individual safety reports in adverse event databases; it is subject to considerable reporting bias and does not control for confounding factors...

BACKGROUND: Patients diagnosed with skin conditions have a higher risk of comorbid psychiatric conditions and suicide-related outcomes such as suicidal ideations and behaviors. There is paucity of evidence in the US general population about the risk of suicide death in patients with dermatologic conditions. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective case-control study to investigate the risk of suicide death in patients receiving care for dermatologic conditions. This study involved 8 US health systems...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend daily delirium monitoring of hospitalized patients. Available delirium-screening tools have not been validated for use by nurses among diverse inpatients. OBJECTIVE: We sought to validate the Nursing Delirium-Screening Scale (Nu-DESC) under these circumstances. METHODS: A blinded cross-sectional and quality-improvement study was conducted from August 2015-February 2016. Nurses׳ Nu-DESC scores were compared to delirium diagnosis according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5 (DSM-5) criteria...

BACKGROUND: Major depression after traumatic brain injury (TBI) has devastating consequences as it increases the risk of suicide, impairs overall quality of life, and affects interpersonal, occupational, and social functioning. Although the literature has reported factors associated with depression after TBI, very few studies have examined the prevalence and correlates focused on the development of new-onset depression (NOD) after first-time TBI. Our study aimed to identify TBI- and non-TBI-related factors associated with the development of NOD in the first year after TBI...

OBJECTIVE: Our study was to determine which psychosocial factors interfere with patients reaching sustained virologic response (SVR), a marker for hepatitis C virus eradication. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed between January 6, 2015 and February 24, 2016. The primary outcome was to assess which social and psychological factors may interfere with patients reaching SVR. SVR was defined as having an undetectable viral load 12 weeks after the completion of the treatment regimen...

BACKGROUND: Conversion disorder (CD) is a largely enigmatic disorder, one that requires a thorough ruling-out process. Prior research suggests that metaphors and conceptualization are rooted in physical experience, and that we interpret our affective world through metaphors. Spatial metaphors (interaction of affect and vertical space) are a prominent example of the grounding of metaphors. This is a relatively unpaved direction of research of CD. OBJECTIVES: The present pilot study sought to explore this view by investigating the "healthy is up, sick is down" spatial metaphors (e...

BACKGROUND: The clinical presentation and risk factors of nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) in the context of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) are poorly understood, and guidance regarding diagnosis and management remains scarce. In this article, we identify case reports of ECT-induced NCSE from literature, and discuss the presentation, diagnosis, and management of these cases in the context of what is known about NCSE from the neurology literature. METHODS: A literature search on PubMed for case reports of NCSE after ECT...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Integrating behavioral health care into the primary care setting is increasingly recognized as an effective way to manage mental illness and substance use disorders on a population level in the United States. The term "integrated care," however, is used in many ways and encompasses several different models. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this article is to provide a conceptual framework to understand the landscape of models of integrated care and to use this framework to contrast the roles of behavioral health providers in integrated settings with those in traditional behavioral health delivery models...

#18
Scott R Beach, John B Taylor, Nicholas Kontos
BACKGROUND: Despite the prevalence with which trainees encounter patients who attempt to manipulate, deceive, or withhold information from them, trainees receive little formal training in "thinking dirty"-that is, incorporating elements of hidden patient motives into their interview, formulation, and plan. Lack of acknowledgment of these aspects of patient care can lead to resident dissatisfaction, negative countertransference reactions, and decreased empathy for patients. METHODS: In this article, the authors outline a multimodal approach used in a large psychiatry training program for teaching trainees to recognize hidden motivations and deception, which involves formal didactic teaching, process rounds, and clinical experience...

BACKGROUND: The increased prevalence of psychiatric illness among patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) has been previously described. OBJECTIVES: We sought to assess the effect of pre-existing psychiatric illness on clinical outcomes following the diagnosis of TC. METHODS: Adults diagnosed with TC at Vanderbilt University Medical Center between 1999 and 2015 were included in the study. Medical records were retrospectively reviewed to identify any pre-existing mood, anxiety, or schizophrenia-spectrum illness before TC presentation...

REVIEW
Emily G Holmes, Jordan A Holmes, Eliza M Park
BACKGROUND: In recent decades, psychiatrists have become increasingly involved in the care of patients with cancer. Psychiatrists are often less familiar with the field of radiation oncology than with other medical specialties. OBJECTIVE: Therefore, it is beneficial for consulting psychiatrists to be familiar with the basic principles of radiation therapy (RT) and its potential neuropsychiatric sequelae. METHODS: We performed a PubMed search to identify articles describing neuropsychiatric symptoms resulting from RT, including anxiety, claustrophobia, posttraumatic stress disorder, and neurocognitive impairment...
