Circulation Research | Year: 2013

RATIONALE: Reactive hyperemia (RH) in the forearm circulation is an important marker of cardiovascular health, yet the underlying vasodilator signaling pathways are controversial and thus remain unclear. OBJECTIVE: We hypothesized that RH occurs via activation of inwardly rectifying potassium (KIR) channels and Na/K-ATPase and is largely independent of the combined production of the endothelial autocoids nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandins in young healthy humans. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 24 (23±1 years) subjects, we performed RH trials by measuring forearm blood flow (FBF; venous occlusion plethysmography) after 5 minutes of arterial occlusion. In protocol 1, we studied 2 groups of 8 subjects and assessed RH in the following conditions. For group 1, we studied control (saline), KIR channel inhibition (BaCl2), combined inhibition of KIR channels and Na/K-ATPase (BaCl2 and ouabain, respectively), and combined inhibition of KIR channels, Na/K-ATPase, NO, and prostaglandins (BaCl2, ouabain, L-NMMA [N-monomethyl-L-arginine] and ketorolac, respectively). Group 2 received ouabain rather than BaCl2 in the second trial. In protocol 2 (n=8), the following 3 RH trials were performed: control; L-NMMA plus ketorolac; and L-NMMA plus ketorolac plus BaCl2 plus ouabain. All infusions were intra-arterial (brachial). Compared with control, BaCl2 significantly reduced peak FBF (-50±6%; P<0.05), whereas ouabain and L-NMMA plus ketorolac did not. Total FBF (area under the curve) was attenuated by BaCl2 (-61±3%) and ouabain (-44±12%) alone, and this effect was enhanced when combined (-87±4%), nearly abolishing RH. L-NMMA plus ketorolac did not impact total RH FBF before or after administration of BaCl2 plus ouabain. CONCLUSIONS: Activation of KIR channels is the primary determinant of peak RH, whereas activation of both KIR channels and Na/K-ATPase explains nearly all of the total (AUC) RH in humans. © 2013 American Heart Association, Inc.


Wickramasekera I.E.,University of the Rockies
American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis | Year: 2015

This article reviews a growing body of research and theory in hypnosis and neuroscience that supports the empathic involvement theory (EIT) of hypnosis (Wickramasekera II, 2001; Wickramasekera II & Szlyk, 2003; Wickramasekera II, 2007c). The EIT is a unified transpersonal theory of hypnosis and the self, which weaves together empathic elements of Dzogchen, neodissociative, neuroscience, psychoanalytic, sociocognitive, and other theories by proposing that hypnotic phenomena are inherently characterized by their deep involvement with processes of empathy and the self. The EIT proposes that the experience of hypnosis is embodied in a system of neural networks in the brain that utilizes empathy-related processes, adaptive resonance between perceptual input and top-down expectancies, and connectionist learning algorithms to (a) empathically enact the affect, cognition, body language, response expectancies, social roles, sensations, etc. that are presented to them during hypnosis in accordance with socio-cognitive theories of hypnosis; (b) engage in a convergent psychophysiological relationship with another person in accordance with psychoanalytic, Ericksonian, and polyvagal/social engagement system theories; (c) alter the empathic self/other (theory of mind) coding of phenomenological experiences during hypnosis in accordance with aspects of the neo-dissociative and socio-cognitive traditions; and (d) develop an experiential understanding of the illusion of self that may lead, in some people, to its transcendence in accordance with Bon-Buddhist, Dzogchen, and transpersonal scholars. A unified definition of hypnosis is proposed based on findings in the empathic neuroscience of hypnosis as well as a working model of the neuromatrix of the self. © American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.

Since the implementation of managed care, clinicians have struggled with ways to provide optimal treatment in a cost-effective manner. With the rising cost of medications, generic substitutes appear to be an answer. Some medications have proven to be less effective in generic form. Consumers may be wary of generics. However, when financially motivated, many people choose generic over brand-name products. With the hope of finding effective medications with fewer side effects, drug companies continue to spend money to find the best solutions. Research in medication efficacy is costly, which is handed over to the consumer. Benefits and efficacy of generics will be discussed. Copyright © 2011 by The Southern Medical Association.
