Chapter 9
stress: is the worse offender that affects us mentally and physically; laughter alleviates it
memory - problems - mental and physical health issues; sometimes its just cause of stress
and being busy
North Americans dont have much sleep: the growing reason for the trend because of our
use of computers, laptops and televisions and other electronic devices an hour before were
supposed to go to sleep
poll: 95% of respondents were using some kind of electronic device just before closing their
eyes
late video gaming: 13-18 worse offenders: the reason for them not being able to sleep;
not only because they are engaged; artificial light being emitted are overstimulating
their brain not allowing the production of melatonin to occur; results to difficulty of
sleeping

Dr. Charles Samuels: center for sleep in calgary: people are connected for 24 hours a
day because of all these electronic devices
approximately 1 in 10 that there being awakened by phone calls, e-mails, txt almost
every night or every night
list of suggestions
oturn off electronics after 9pm
relying on a lot of coffee to get through the day; nap frequently during the day, many
of the sleep-deprived people are affecting their mood, family life, social life and their
work life
sleep of course is very important in human development at any age
not having enough sleep can often times be confused with memory problems
especially in the elderyl; the elderly may not be using electronic devices, there are
other reasons as well: stress, grief, medications that interfere with the ability to
sleep; chronic conditions that cause pain and interrupt patterns of sleep: rheumatoid
arthritis; difficulty of sleeping - fatigue - may present to you as having memory
problems which you might think is dementia (medication, sleep paterns, talk to the
family, lifestyle habits,
sleep interruption is a problem for the elderly: falls- most common cause of main
injury;
falls among elderly; 1/5 of all severe admissions to hospitals
in ON. we are always dealing with our problem of limited budget for health care
ON goverment instituted a 2 year wage freeze on hospital management and non-
uniozed staff in order to get rid of a 20 billion dollar deficit in ON
this is important because it raises the prospect of lay-offs in hospitals and service
cuts
women who drink one or more servings of sugary drink/orange juice a day are
adding increased risk for developing a condition of gout (a type of arthritis: occurs
uric-acid crystal formation in the joints)
diet softdrinks were not associated with the risk of gout
www.notesolution.com
stress: we are also being told that there is an association on our ability to remember
things or flooding of memories: post-traumatic stress disorder, victims of war,
aftermath in Japan,
how can we delete those painful memories in people? Dr. Karim Nadar, Montreal,
McGill: Dr. Nadal research hoping to find ways to dull pain associated with trauma;
to turn a traumatic memory and transform it to an ordinary memory; when using a
medication called propranorol; that basically people will have a dull effect of the
memory; it is now being test: commonly prescribed as beta-blocker; shows promise
when administered literally after an hour after a traumatic even, then the person
who was exposed will not develop post-traumatic disorder
stress can be very harmful: fight or flight hormones affecting us raising our blood
pressure; heart problems; chest-pain, elevated blood pressure
stress is a staple part of life; it is relative
South Florida woman injured, dolphin jumped over states west Cost and landed on a
woman, suffered a sprain ankle
stress differs from one person to another
Sigmond Freud: psycho-social analysis but that was the idea; personality and
disease outcomes are very much related
CHD: subjected to prolong stress;
hostility: people that are suffering from hostility, Charlie Sheen: risk factor for
cardio vascular events, coronary heart disease, type-a personality rate are at great
risk for cardiovascular disease, always anxious,
hostility: demographic trends: coronary heart disease stronger for men, theories as
to why it leads to higher levels of mortality
people that are high in hostility, tend to have poor health behaviour habits, more
likely to drink, smoke excessively,
anxiety: at risk for coronary heart disease, release of catacole mines stimulating
our heart rate; sweating profusely, heart rate variability decreases with normal
aging
depression: is a part of a normal course of life; amount of time that you are feeling
sad that can be a problem
