Thus, feelings are the central issue, and under this heading one might expect to include fear, jealousy or love. Bipolar disorder (once called manic-depressive psychosis) is the most dramatic form - characterised by mood elevated (manic) and lowered (depressed) phases. These phases may last for months or even become chronic. For a given patient, swings may predominantly occur in one direction, alternatively, about equal numbers of swings may occur in each direction. In the mood elevated phase the patient is often over confident, grandiose, irritable and disinhibited, with rapid thoughts, reduced need for sleep and abundant energy. Delusions may occur about possessing exceptional importance or skills; hallucinations (often of being spoken to by God or adoring others) less commonly occur. In depressed phases the mood and energy are low, thinking is slowed and the ability to concentrate is reduced. Sleep is disrupted, the patient often waking in the early hours and unable to return to sleep. There is loss of interest in food, sexual or any other activity, and weight loss is a frequent feature. The patient in a manic phase is clearly acting out of character, and with mood elevation as a springboard, problems arise when patients engage in risky behaviour such as unwise investments, fast driving, ill-advised sexual liaisons or audacious activities. The patient in a depressive phase may also act out of character, becoming inactive and withdrawn. However, not infrequently, the patient thinks about death and regrettably, suicide is more common among significantly depressed individuals than among the healthy population. Major depressive disorder or unipolar depression is the term applied when severe episodes of depression occur, but the individual has never experienced a manic or hypomanic episode. Cyclothymic disorder manifests both depression and elevations, but severity is insufficient for the diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Persistent depressive disorder is a chronic condition of depressed mood; this may indicate a major depressive disorder which has incompletely resolved, or a long term condition which has never reached the diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder.

The symptoms of the psychotic disorders such as hallucinations and delusions are largely unknown to healthy individuals. However, the symptoms of the non-psychotic disorders are known to us all, at least to some degree. These include anxiety, which is similar to worry and fear - in a mild form, this is familiar to everyone who has taken an exam or been out on a first date. Generalized anxiety disorder is characterised by continuous, unprovoked anxiety. Panic disorder is characterized by sudden attacks of extreme anxiety during which the patient may struggle to get enough air, feel the heart thumping as if to burst, and fear that he/she may collapse or die. The phobic disorders (or phobias) are characterized by episodes of anxiety which is out of proportion to the danger of a particular situation. In agoraphobia, anxiety is triggered by the thought of leaving the home, and this may worsen if the home is left. In special phobias, anxiety increases at the thought of meeting a feared, specific agent or circumstance (spiders or lifts, for example), and life may be disrupted by the steps taken to avoid those agents or circumstances. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a curious, disabling condition. Obsessions are repetitive thoughts which make no sense. Patients (usually) accept that these are their own thoughts, but are unable to stop them. For example, the patient may have the irrational and unwelcome thought that his/her hands are contaminated by dirt or germs, alternatively, the patient may be dogged by the irrational thought that he/she “killed God”. The patient is distressed by the loss of control and the “silliness” of his/her thought. Compulsions are repetitive actions or urges in which the patient engages. Sometimes the compulsions relate to obsessions, as when the thought is that the hands are dirty and so the hands must be washed.

Conclusion A neurological intensive care unit requires a multidisciplinary approach to the management of critically ill patients cheap 100 mg kamagra gold fast delivery.

Medical Diseases and Metabolic Encephalopathies Saher Hashem buy generic kamagra gold 100mg, Nabil Kitchener Neurological emergencies in medical diseases (secondary brain injury) purchase 100mg kamagra gold, e kamagra gold 100mg. Understanding the underlying mechanisms of secondary brain injury which include hypoxia, hypoperfusion, reperfusion injury with free radical formations, release of excitatory amino acids and harmful mediators from injured cells, and electrolyte and acid base changes from systemic or regional ischemia, are very important for proper management of such conditions. Management rules will be specified according to each cause and pathogenesis. Metabolic encephalopathies are a group of neurological deficits affecting the brain causing delirium, confusion, or coma, caused by different mechanisms involving toxin production or interference with metabolic biochemical processes. Metabolic encephalopathies are usually multifactorial in origin, and are important complications of many diseases of patients treated in critical care units. Confusion is clinically defined as the inability 98 | Critical Care in Neurology to maintain a coherent stream of thought or action. Delirium is a confusional state with superimposed hyperactivity of the sympathetic limb of the autonomic nervous system with consequent signs including tremor, tachycardia, diaphoresis, and mydriasis. Acute toxic-metabolic encephalopathy (TME), which encompasses delirium and the acute confusional state, is an acute condition of global cerebral dysfunction in the absence of primary structural brain disease (Chen 1996).

On the other hand, multifocal Medical Diseases and Metabolic Encephalopathies | 99 spikes are specific to lithium intoxication (Kaplan 2011). Brain stem auditory evoked potentials (BAER) are resistant to metabolic changes. General Pathophysiology Normal neuronal activity requires a balanced environment of electrolytes, water, amino acids, excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters, and metabolic substrates (Earnest 1993). In addition, normal blood flow, normal temperature, normal osmolality, and physiologic pH are required for optimal central nervous system function. Complex systems, including those mediating arousal and awareness and those involved in higher cognitive functions, are more likely to malfunction when the local body environment is deranged (Young 1998). All forms of acute metabolic encephalopathy (ME) interfere with the function of the ascending reticular activating system and its projections to the cerebral cortex, leading to impairment of arousal and awareness. Ultimately, the neurophysiologic mechanisms of ME include interruption of polysynaptic pathways and altered excitatory-inhibitory amino acid balance (Lipton 1994). The pathophysiology of ME varies according to the underlying etiology. Hepatic Encephalopathy Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) appears as a complication of fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) and in chronic liver failure. Initially it is characterized by minor mental and personality changes with some cognitive impairment. With disease progression there are obvious motor abnormalities and increasing loss of consciousness until deep coma. All of the following conditions may precipitate hepatic encephalopathy: – Increased GIT protein absorption like in GIT hemorrhage or increased dietary protein – Drugs like benzodiazepines or INH – Renal dysfunction – Catabolic states like infections and surgery – Dehydration, hypokalemia, constipation – Chronic hepatopathies which can present with FHF, e. Cerebral edema may complicate hepatic encephalopathy in 80% of cases. This syndrome is reversible with normalization of renal functions. Another form of renal dysfunction is pre-renal azotemia. Hypotension and derangement of acid base balance with acidosis is reported with cerebral edema and alkalosis, and is found with vomiting and hypokalaemia in cases of hepatic encephalopathy.
