Against depression by Peter D Kramer( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A decade ago, with Listening to Prozac, Kramer revolutionized the way we think about antidepressants and the culture in which they are so widely used. Now, he returns with a look at the condition those medications treat. Depression, linked in our culture to a long tradition of "heroic melancholy," is often regarded as ennobling--a source of soulfulness and creativity. Tracing this belief from Aristotle to the Romantics to Picasso, and to present-day memoirs of mood disorder, Kramer suggests that the pervasiveness of the illness has distorted our sense of what it is to be human. There is nothing heroic about depression, he argues, and he presents the latest scientific findings to support the fact that depression is a disease.--Publisher description

Ordinarily well : the case for antidepressants by Peter D Kramer( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Do antidepressants actually work, or are they just glorified dummy pills? How can we tell one way or the other?In Ordinarily Well, the celebrated psychiatrist and author Peter D. Kramer addresses the growing mistrust of antidepressants among the medical establishment and the broader public by taking the long view. He charts the history of the drugs' development and the research that tests their worth, from the Swiss psychiatrist Roland Kuhn's pioneering midcentury discovery of imipramine's antidepressant properties to recent controversial studies suggesting that medications like Prozac and Paxil may be no better than placebos in alleviating symptoms. He unpacks the complex "inside baseball" of psychiatry--statistics--and reveals the fascinating ways that clinical studies and their results can be combined, manipulated, and skewed toward a desired conclusion. All the while, Kramer never loses sight of the patients themselves. He writes with deep empathy about his own clinical encounters over the decades as he weighed treatments, analyzed trial results, and considered the idiosyncrasies each case presented. As Kramer sees it, we must respect human complexity and the value of psychotherapy without denying the truth--that depression is a serious and destructive illness that demands the most effective treatment available"--Provided by publisher

Should you leave? by Peter D Kramer( Recording )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A writer who presents his vast knowledge of psychiatry with the art of a novelist, Peter D. Kramer imagines scenarios in which he addresses a series of advice seekers. Each "session" not only reveals the various styles of giving advice - from Freudian psychoanalytic techniques to Ann Landers's application of conventional values - but probes the complexities of human relationships: How do we choose our partners? How well do we know them? How do mood states affect our assessment of them and theirs of us? When should we work to improve a relationship, and when should we walk away? What does "working on a relationship" entail? Kramer's questions lead to a reconsideration of our culture's norms - and to a suggestion that we may have begun to over-value autonomy and assertiveness at the cost of intimacy and connectedness

The hidden mental health network : provision of mental health services by non-psychiatrist physicians by Rachel Schurman( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the ability of the nonpsychiatrist physician to provide mental health services in an effort to guide policymakers dealing with the question of whether nonpsychiatrist physicians can, or should, be used to offset the projected shortfall of psychiatrists. The maldistribution of psychiatrists is discussed in chapter 1 of this report. Chapter 2 describes the National Ambulatory Medical Care surveys conducted in 1980 and 1981 as the data source for this analysis, and explains the sample and procedures used to define mental health visits. Chapter 3 compares mental health office visits to psychiatrists and to nonpsychiatrist physicians along a variety of dimensions: diagnosis, reason for visit, patient demographics, geographic location, length of visit, etc. In chapter 4, multivariate techniques are used first to estimate the probability that a patient will see a psychiatrist, and then to estimate the probability that a psychotropic drug will be prescribed. Chapter 5 presents the conclusions that nonpsychiatrist physicians: (1) appear to be part of a hidden mental health network, providing services to patients who cannot or need not obtain specialized care; (2) seem to substitute drugs for time in their treatment of mental disorders; (3) are less likely than psychiatrists to prescribe combination drugs; and (4) are less likely than psychiatrists to order major tranquilizers or the more serious and potentially dangerous antidepressants. Policy implications are discussed. Fifteen data tables are included. (Nb)
Arteriovenous hemofiltration : a kidney replacement therapy for intensive care unit by Peter Kramer( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discovery and Relative Importance of Continuous Arteriovenous HemofIltration Lee W. Henderson Continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration (CAVH) has seen a brisk upswing in popularity in Europe since its introduction by Dr. Kramer and colleagues from Gottingen, West Germany in 1977 [1]. In the United States, the technique re ceived approval as a clinical tool from the Food and Drug Administration in April 1982. This approval flowed, in no small measure, from the extensive expe rience reported from Europe and in particular West Germany [e. g., 2, 3]. Reports of its clinical utility now have begun to appear in the United States [4]. Removal of excess total body water using synthetic membranes in an extracor poreal circuit dates back to the work of Alwall and the artificial kidney that he designed which permitted utilization of a hydrostatic pressure gradient to moti vate water flow across the membrane [5]. Kolffs original rotating drum with its unencased membrane required an osmotic driving force [6]. Hemofiltration, the use of the filtration process to remove uremic solutes with the artificial kidney, in analogy with the glomerulus, was reported in 1967 [7]. This was made possible by the availability of synthetic membranes with far higher hydraulic permeability (approximately 10 times higher) than conventionally used cellulosic hemodialysis membrane. Specific applications of these "high flux" membranes to the removal primarily of excess total body water followed shortly thereafter [8]
