Over the last few years, we've seen a noticeable increase in anxiety and anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. And we've talked about anxiety many times on the Diverse Thinking Different Learning Podcast. But one thing we haven't discussed yet is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder or OCD. This is a topic that has been requested by listeners and I'm thrilled to have found today's guest, Dr. Jesse Spiegel, an expert on OCD. Everyone has had the occasional concern about misplacing something or has had a fear of germs or contamination. Sometimes we have a need to order and arrange things in a particular way. But when these thoughts and behaviors become intense and begin to interfere with life, they may indicate OCD. In our conversation today, Dr. Spiegel explains the major differences between obsessive behaviors and compulsions as well as common unintentional mistakes parents make with children who exhibit these behaviors. Show Notes: [2:28] - We are currently seeing a noticeable increase in anxiety in children and teens. [4:05] - OCD has two components: obsessions and compulsions. [5:48] - There are some compulsions that are observable to other people, but many compulsions are mental and unseen by others. [8:04] - Reassurance seeking is often overlooked by parents, but it is common in OCD and tends to feed the obsessions and compulsions. [10:03] - When you accommodate the child's compulsive behaviors, it actually accommodates the OCD. [11:49] - Anxiety disorders overlap in a lot of ways, but OCD is overpowering. [15:00] - Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) is a component of the treatment for OCD. Dr. Spiegel explains what this entails. [19:12] - Being over accommodating or over demanding are mistakes that a lot of parents of children with OCD make. [20:16] - Parents need to learn new ways to respond because a lot of behaviors unintentionally fuel OCD. [22:27] - Let's give a name to OCD for children. Some call it “The Worry Monster”. [24:57] - Giving it a name takes the power away from OCD. It's not who you are, but it is impacting you. [26:30] - A lot of times, kids do not want to be in therapy. Dr. Spiegel describes some ways to provide motivation. About Our Guest: Dr. Jesse Spiegel is a licensed clinical psychologist treating children, adolescents, and adults. He works in private practice in Los Angeles, CA, where he specializes in treating OCD, anxiety, insomnia, and behavioral-related problems. In addition to utilizing CBT and exposure-based therapies, Dr. Spiegel takes a family-based approach when working with clients. Dr. Spiegel is a clinical instructor at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine's Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences. He is the Vice Chair of the Anxiety Depression Association of America's (ADAA) OCD SIG. Dr. Spiegel is a graduate of the IOCDF's Behavioral Therapy Training Institute (BTTI), as well as the Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE) program.

The COVID-19 vaccine came out at warp speed because of the work of these two scientists. This week, they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. In celebration, we are re-posting our episode about Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman. For many, many years they investigated the secrets of messenger RNA (mRNA). And when the pandemic began, their research was ready and waiting. On this episode you'll hear Katalin Karikó talk about her humble beginnings in Hungary, and the forces that enabled her to persevere, even though for decades people thought her ideas about mRNA were laughable. She was denied grants, lost jobs and wasn't taken seriously, but she never wavered. Fortunately, she met Drew Weissman one day at a copy machine, where they both worked at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Weissman was an immunologist, working on a vaccine for HIV. He was interested in Karikó's work and they began to collaborate. Even when they made major discoveries, they could not get support for their work… until the Corona Virus appeared. Now the scientific world sees the potential that Karikó and Weissman saw all along: that mRNA may open the door to many other vaccines and to therapeutic treatment for a host of illnesses, from Cancer to Sickle Cell Anemia to Heart Disease.

How many married couples sleep in separate beds? A lot more than you may think. This episode begins with a discussion about why couples sleep separately and how it used to be a common and recommended practice not so long ago. https://www.newsweek.com/marriage-couple-sleeping-separately-husband-wife-1742874 The interesting thing about fear is that it is an emotion that serves us well. Without fear, we'd all be dead. Yet, sometimes fear gets in the way. We can often be more afraid than a situation warrants. We can be fearful and anxious about so many things it can prevent us from living a full and happy life. Joining me to help explore what human fear is all about and how to control it when it gets in the way is Dr. Arash Javanbakht. He is a psychiatrist and neuroscientist who is director of the Stress, Trauma, and Anxiety Research Clinic at Wayne State University School of Medicine and author of the book Afraid: Understanding the Purpose of Fear and Harnessing the Power of Anxiety (https://amzn.to/3LDJ93K). Our world is full of chemicals – many of them are harmless while many others are dangerous. Where do new manmade chemicals come from? How do we know they are safe? Do we really understand the dangers of all the chemicals we surround ourselves with? Here to answer these and other important questions about chemicals in our environment Frank A. von Hippel. Frank is a professor of ecotoxicology at Northern Arizona University and author of the book The Chemical Age: How Chemists Fought Famine and Disease, Killed Millions, and Changed Our Relationship with the Earth (https://amzn.to/3tbzA5K) Certain words, when used to describe specific foods, can actually make you think the food tastes better than it really does.

How do you get people to think about new ideas?And then, how do you move your audience from thinking - to buying? To examine how ideas go from brainstorming to industry-changing, I've invited Pete O'Heeron to join me for today's podcast. Pete is the Founder and CEO of FibroBiologics, a leading biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing fibroblast cell-based therapies. We kick the conversation off discussing how Fibroblast has gone from a few peer reviewed papers a year to dozens each week in the span of a mere eight years. Pete helps us understand exactly what fibroblast cells are and why the amount of interest and important research for them has spiked. Not only is research into fibroblast cells new but the work Pete is doing at FibroBiologics is going in directions no one else is. Pete discusses why they are doing work no one else is and how the research and science are the mechanics that steer the direction of the company. Working on such new and cutting edge ideas often means having to convert people from no, to yes. Pete shares how their scientific discovery board is made up of world leaders in stem cell research, which gives the work they do a great deal of credibility. This creates an opportunity to start conversations that spark interest in what the company is doing and allows the science to sell itself as people dig into these new ideas. Pete offers great insight into how to take new niche ideas from prototype to market and have conversations that draws your audience in. Three Key Takeaways: · Allowing research and science to dictate the direction of your company can take you in new directions. · Getting new ideas out means starting a conversation with the points that will spark interest. After that follow with research and science that can't be disputed. · Having a board within your company that is filled with respected professionals will give the new ideas you produce a level of credibility that others might not have.

What if antibiotics aren't as necessary as we think for infants with high-grade Vesico-urideral Reflex (VUR)? That's the question we dissect in this thought-provoking episode. We dive into a recent study from the New England Journal of Medicine, which took a close look at the use of continuous antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent the first symptomatic UTI in infants with high-grade VUR. We'll unpack the methods used in this Phase 3 multi-centered prospective randomized open-label trial, walk you through the criteria for the trial, and explore how the primary and secondary outcomes were determined.Did you know that about 70% of infants with high-grade VUR will never experience a UTI in their first two years? With this startling statistic in mind, we tackle the ongoing debate on whether to administer prophylaxis to infants with grade 3, 4, or 5 reflux. Hear us explore the evolving guidelines put forth by pediatricians and nephrologists and what this shifting perspective means for a system-wide approach to prophylaxis. This episode is a must-listen for healthcare professionals and parents alike who want to understand the risks and benefits of antibiotic prophylaxis in infants with high-grade VUR more comprehensively.

Restorative, yin, and gentle yoga are some of the most effective and underutilized tools for stress reduction and health promotion available. They are powerful medicine for stress relief and healing. I recorded this episode is in honor of all the times I hear how restorative and yin yoga were first enjoyed at my Sagrada Nourish & Transform Retreat. Afterwards these types of yoga become regular practices for many who join me. These kinds of yoga are powerful medicine designed to cultivate nervous system relaxation, activate the parasympathetic nervous system, and decrease stress. Restorative yoga is conscious rest and one of the most productive activities you can do for your peace, health, and healing. “Healing is a matter of time but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity” - Hippocrates No matter where you are in life, slow, gentle, restorative yoga can help you have less pain, less stress, and be healthier and feel happier. “To understand what really ails you have to be quiet and listen.” This is the why of "slow" yoga. The yoga I usually teach I call Mindful Yoga. It is a blend of yin and hatha with mindfulness, coaching, and mindset work intentionally infused throughout. My usual classes are designed to be accessible to different levels, body types, and even to those healing, and/or not at their best. People who have had a hard time with yoga in the past tell me my yoga is the first yoga they have enjoyed and felt safe in. Yoga is a philosophy, a way of living, and a way of working with and caring for the body that you have with kindness. The intention is to learn to live with the body you have. To use it optimally, befriend it, and treat it well. As a society we spend so much time in sympathetic overdrive, gentle, restorative practices are essential for health and stress management. They are "prop heavy" to hold your body while you rest. Props are not crutches- they are part of the experience. They allow you to rest comfortably and relax into the pose. This is but of the one reasons why slow restorative yoga is better in person. Retreats are the best way to learn how to practice it in a way that feels good to you. Almost everyone who joins me goes home with a love of the restorative and yin practice. I personally can't recommend adding this type of yoga to your practice/life enough. Restorative yoga is a completely different experience than most other styles of yoga. Postures are held almost effortlessly for long periods. The only work that's required on your part during a restorative yoga practice is to pay attention to your breath and become aware of any sensations or thoughts that may arise. It is great pre-sleep practice and at Sagrada retreats it is affectionately known as Pajama yoga. Do you want to learn to relax more? Do you want to be less stressed? Do you want to sleep better? Do you want to hurt less? Do you want to strengthen the connective tissues around your bones and joints? Do you want to learn to breathe strategically? Try restorative yoga. “Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right the outside will fall into place.” - Eckhart Tolle "Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured." - BKS Iyengar What you practice grows. My wish for you is to practice stress reduction, relaxation, and restorative rest. If you are a woman physician I encourage you to join me for a retreat to learn how to practice these techniques in person. The experience of learning them in person makes them even more delicious and effective and you will learn ways to make them simple and personalized. www.jessiemahoneymd.com/retreat-nourish-and-transform Today's mindful moment is a brief virtual sound healing session. Sound healing is something that is also much better in person. If you wish to join me for mindful yoga on zoom, you can sign up here.

New York officials are attempting to pass a law extending government powers to force the quarantine of people exposed to illnesses like COVID-19. Attorneys and state senator George Borrello are fighting back with a lawsuit, saying the change would be a breach of due process by taking rights from targeted individuals and forcing them to appeal to courts after they've already been forced into involuntary detention. Dr. Drew is joined by Joshua Guetzkow (sociologist and criminologist), Sen. George Borrello (NY State Senator), Bobbie Anne Cox (NY attorney), and Dr. Kelly Victory. Olean Times Herald reported that “Borrello, the lead plaintiff in the case, had challenged Section 2.3 of the state's Public health Law, which would have allowed state health officials to order people suspected of having a communicable disease such as COVID-19 could be placed in temporary housing — which saw claims on social media indicating the state had the authority to and may have planned to create “quarantine camps” during the pandemic.” 「 SPONSORED BY 」 Find out more about the companies that make this show possible and get special discounts on amazing products at https://drdrew.com/sponsors • GENUCEL - Using a proprietary base formulated by a pharmacist, Genucel has created skincare that can dramatically improve the appearance of facial redness and under-eye puffiness.

Welcome to PICU Doc on Call, a podcast dedicated to current and aspiring intensivists. I'm Pradeep Kumar coming to you from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University School of Medicine, and I'm Rahul Damania from Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. We are two pediatric ICU physicians passionate about all things medical education in the PICU.Episode Overview: PICU.com call focuses on interesting PICU cases and management in the acute care Pediatric setting. In this episode, we discuss the case of an eight-year-old boy with chest pain, fatigue, and shortness of breath. This case presentation by Rahul highlights the complexity of pediatric care in the PICU.Case Presentation: An eight-year-old boy with up-to-date immunizations and no recent travel or pet exposure presented to the PICU with chief complaints of chest pain, fatigue, and decreased oral intake. His history over the preceding two weeks included a diminishing appetite, episodes of vomiting, and shortness of breath.On examination, he exhibited various cardiac findings, including a hyperdynamic left ventricle, murmurs, and a noted gallop. Abdominal and neurological findings were also concerning. Diagnostic studies revealed an enlarged heart, and sinus tachycardia with left ventricular hypertrophy, and echocardiography confirmed severe valvular and ventricular abnormalities.Laboratory Findings:Laboratory findings included elevated BNP, slightly elevated troponin, and elevated inflammatory markers (ESR and CRP). Strep throat culture was negative, but ASO and anti-DNAse B titers were markedly elevated. MRI confirmed multiple punctate infarctions, likely due to valvular heart disease.Diagnosis: Given the complex multisystem presentation, the child was admitted to the PICU for intensive monitoring and comprehensive management of this multisystem pathology. The working diagnosis is rheumatic fever.The episode is organized into three parts:Pathophysiology of Acute Rheumatic FeverApproach to Diagnosis and InvestigationsManagement and PreventionPathophysiology of Acute Rheumatic Fever: Acute rheumatic fever is an autoimmune disease initiated by a response to group A strep infection, primarily due to molecular mimicry. The streptococcal M protein has structural similarities with host proteins, leading to organ damage, especially in the heart.Epidemiology: Acute rheumatic fever is most prevalent in low to middle-income areas, affecting over 80% of cases. It mainly affects children between 5 to 14 years of age, and overcrowded households and limited healthcare access increase the risk. Globally, rheumatic heart disease affects millions of people annually and claims many lives.Jones Criteria for Diagnosis: The Jones criteria help diagnose acute rheumatic fever. For

We continue the conversation about artificial intelligence (AI) in this second episode of a two-part series. Our guest is Dr. Michael Victoroff, a family medicine physician, patient safety and risk management specialist, and clinical informatics expert. Dr. Victoroff uses image interpretation in radiology as an example of AI because it sees things humans miss and humans see things AI misses. We look at other AI applications—support for diagnosing and creating a treatment plan, concerns with visit notes (e.g., inaccuracies, information designed for billing purposes versus information for patient care, bias that can emerge, etc.), and the knowledge medical providers will need to acquire about AI's role in medicine. In addition, Dr. Victoroff highlights key risk considerations such as cyber risks, AI impersonation of other medical professionals and facilities, and how this technology may extend into our personal lives.Feedback or episode ideas email the show at firstname.lastname@example.orgDisclaimer: Information provided in this podcast should not be relied upon for personal, medical, legal, or financial decisions and you should consult an appropriate professional for specific advice that pertains to your situation.

The Science Behind The Placebo EffectEarlier this month, a Food and Drug Administration panel concluded that a common decongestant ingredient used in drugs like Sudafed and NyQuil doesn't work. The panel agreed that while the ingredient, called phenylephrine, isn't dangerous, it doesn't work any better than a placebo.That made us wonder: How well do placebos work? And why do they work even when people know they're getting a placebo?Ted J. Kaptchuk, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of the Program in Placebo Studies and Therapeutic Encounter at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, joins guest host and musician Dessa to talk about what's new in placebo research. They discuss the benefits placebos can offer for chronic illness management, and when doctors might start using them in treatments. Where Technology Meets AbleismWith all the bad news on our feeds, a feel-good story can be a welcome reprieve. But what happens when that story comes in the form of coverage of disability technology?You might've seen the videos online of a person with a physical disability being fitted with an exoskeleton, essentially “wearing” a robot, to help them walk. Onlookers cheer in the background, dramatic music swells, and we get the sense we're watching something inspirational and empowering—a victory of the human spirit.This might seem like a triumph of scientific innovation, but our guest asks us to look again at what's actually going on in narratives like this one.Dr. Ashley Shew, associate professor at Virginia Tech, studies the intersection of disability and technology and how our collective fixation on these fancy, supposedly transformative gadgets could be doing more harm than good. In her new book, she coins the term “technoableism” to get to the heart of the matter.Guest host and musician Dessa talks with Dr. Shew about her book Against Technoableism: Rethinking Who Needs Improvement, about what disability technology is, what the future should look like, and even how disability intersects with space travel and climate change. Sour Times For Florida's CitrusFlorida is known for citrus, particularly its fresh-squeezed orange juice. But citrus trees in the state are struggling. For the last two decades, crops have been struck with a devastating disease called “citrus greening.” And Florida orange production has dropped some 94% over that period. Citrus greening is caused by an invasive insect, the Asian citrus psyllid, which is threatening to wipe out the citrus industry in the state. One of the effects of the disease is a bitter, acidic fruit. Scientists are hard at work devising possible solutions to save Florida's crop.Guest host and musician Dessa talks with Dr. Yu Wang, associate professor of food science at the University of Florida's Citrus Education and Research Center, about her recent advances in making infected orange plants sweeter. Making Neuroscience Into MusicWhen composer Sarah Hennies learned about a neurological theory called “motor tapes” from Oliver Sacks' book Musicophilia, the concept stuck with her for years. The theory comes from neuroscientist Rodolfo Llinás, who posited that many of our thoughts, memories, and physical movements operate via a series of “looping tapes,” with the goal of reducing the amount of energy the brain uses while doing common, repetitive tasks.The concept resonated with Hennies, who is also a visiting assistant professor of music at Bard College. Most of her compositions use heavy amounts of repetition, and Llinás' theory fit with how she experienced her own memories and the evolution of her identity. Her piece “Motor Tapes” premiered in early August, performed by Ensemble Dedalus.Hennies joins guest host and musician Dessa to talk about repetition in music, how to translate neuroscience into art, and what that pairing can reveal about our bodies and the world around us.
