Related Articles Psychedelics and Dying Care: A Historical Look at the Relationship between Psychedelics and Palliative Care. J Psychoactive Drugs. 2019 Apr-Jun;51(2):102-107 Authors: Dyck E Abstract This article examines the historical relationship between psychedelics and palliative care. Historians have contributed to a growing field of studies about how psychedelics have been used in the past, but much of that scholarship focused on interrogating questions of legitimacy or proving that psychedelics had therapeutic potential. Palliative care had not yet developed as medical sub-specialty, more often leaving dying care on the margins of modern, pharmaceutical-based treatments. As psychedelic researchers in the 1950s…

Indwelling pleural catheters for benign pleural effusions: what is the evidence?

Related Articles Indwelling pleural catheters for benign pleural effusions: what is the evidence? Curr Opin Pulm Med. 2019 07;25(4):369-373 Authors: Aboudara M, Maldonado F Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Benign pleural effusions are common and usually managed by treating the underlying disease process. In some patients, these effusions may be refractory to medical management. Indwelling pleural catheters, used extensively for malignant pleural effusions, are increasingly used in benign pleural effusions not responding to medical therapy. This review focuses on current data regarding their safety and effectiveness in effusions due to congestive heart failure, hepatic hydrothorax, end-stage renal disease, and chylothorax. RECENT…

Palliative care and paediatric cardiology: current evidence and future directions.

Related Articles Palliative care and paediatric cardiology: current evidence and future directions. Lancet Child Adolesc Health. 2019 07;3(7):502-510 Authors: Morell E, Moynihan K, Wolfe J, Blume ED Abstract Although outcomes for children with heart disease have improved substantially over the past several decades, heart disease remains one of the leading causes of paediatric mortality. For children who progress to advanced heart disease, disease morbidity is high, with many children requiring multiple surgical interventions and long-term intensive care hospitalisations. Care for children with advanced heart disease requires a multidisciplinary approach, and opportunities for earlier integration of palliative care are being explored.…
