Long-Term Follow-up of Individual Therapist Delivered and Standardized Hypnotherapy Recordings in Pediatric Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Functional Abdominal Pain.

J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2022 Jul 4;75(1):24-29. Epub 2022 May 4.

the Department of Pediatrics, St. Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, the Netherlands.

Objectives: We previously showed that standardized home-based gut-directed hypnosis exercises with compact disc (CD) is non-inferior to individual hypnotherapy (iHT) by a therapist in the treatment of children with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and functional abdominal pain (syndrome) (FAP(S)). Aim of this follow-up study was to investigate the long-term effects of standardized-hypnosis-recordings at home in comparison to iHT.

Methods: All participants from our previous randomized controlled trial were invited to complete: 1) an online standardized abdominal pain dairy, on which pain frequency and intensity were scored, and 2) an online questionnaire including adequate relief (AR), anxiety/depression scores, somatization, quality of life (QOL), pain beliefs, school and/or work absenteeism and health care utilization.

Future projection therapy: Techniques and case examples.

Am J Clin Hypn 2022 Jun 20:1-12. Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Tramontana Psychological Services, Baton Rouge, LA, United States.

As noted by some recent authors, psychotherapy has traditionally focused primarily on how the past affects present functioning. For example, in the hypnosis literature, there is much written about age regression and more recently there has been a focus on the future. In the 1950's there was discussions about embodying expectancy and pseudo-orientation-in-time, but there was not much in the literature again until the 1980's and thereafter about the importance of future focus.

Anxiety and Depression in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Perspectives on the Use of Hypnosis.

Front Psychol 2022 19;13:913406. Epub 2022 May 19.

Complementary Care and Behavior Research Team, Bligny Hospital Center, Briis-sous-Forges, France.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a highly prevalent and debilitating respiratory condition, characterized by chronic airflow limitation, breathlessness, and other persistent respiratory symptoms. Critically, patients suffering from COPD often find themselves trapped in a vicious comorbidity cycle: while breathlessness and increased respiratory rate are known inducers of anxiety, the latter have been shown in turn to exacerbate breathlessness and chest discomfort. Hypnosis holds great potential for the simultaneous complementary management of anxiety and breathlessness in COPD. Read More

Beyond the epidural: Alternatives to neuraxial labor analgesia.

Best Pract Res Clin Anaesthesiol 2022 May 22;36(1):37-51. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905, USA. Electronic address:

Labor creates an intense pain experienced by women across the world. Although neuraxial analgesia is the most effective treatment of labor pain, in many cases, it may not be undesired, not available, or have contraindications. In addition, satisfaction with labor analgesia is not only determined by the efficacy of analgesia but a woman's sense of agency and involvement in the childbirth experience are also key contributors.

Global sensitivity analysis in physiologically-based pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic models of inhaled and opioids anesthetics and its application to generate virtual populations.

J Pharmacokinet Pharmacodyn 2022 May 26. Epub 2022 May 26.

Bioinstrumentation and Clinical Engineering Research Group - GIBIC, Bioengineering Program, Bioengineering Department, Engineering Faculty, Universidad de Antioquia UdeA, Calle 70, No. 52-21, 050016, Medellín, Colombia.

The integration between physiologically-based pharmacokinetics (PBPK) models and pharmacodynamics (PD) models makes it possible to describe the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion processes of drugs, together with the concentration-response relationship, being a fundamental framework with wide applications in pharmacology. Nevertheless, the enormous complexity of PBPK models and the large number of parameters that define them leads to the need to study and understand how the uncertainty of the parameters affects the variability of the models output. To study this issue, this paper proposes a global sensitivity analysis (GSA) to identify the parameters that have the greatest influence on the response of the model. Read More
