Turning

Turning from side to side permits lung expansion. Patients may turn themselves or be turned by a caregiver. The head of the bed is also elevated to promote drainage if the patient can tolerate this position. Critically ill patients and those dependent on mechanical respiration are turned once every one to two hours around the clock.

Patient discussion about Turning

Q. Can depressions turn into a bipolar? Anyone here who is misdiagnosed as depression but supposed to be a bipolar? It had happened with me ……I was on antidepressants from 3 years and now they say I am bipolar….can depressions turn into a bipolar?

A. It's very very normal for people to suffer from depression before they are diagnosed, or have even had, their first bipolar episode. Bipolar most commonly develops during late adolescents into the early thirties. Usually, people who eventually become bipolar have a long history of depression, anxiety, and/or other mood disorders. In my case for instance, I was diagnosed with Major Depression when I was 14. When I was 21 I had my first manic break and my diagnosis was changed to Bipolar II disorder. It doesn't mean that the original diagnosis was wrong, I just hadn't become bipolar yet. Just like a chest cold develops into pneumonia, its not necessarily a misdiagnosis, just a progressive disorder. I suspect that adjusting treatment to your updated diagnosis will be very beneficial.

Q. My brother is bipolar now turning to alcoholism because he is showing such symptoms. My brother is bipolar and I have found that during his episodes of depression he runs to a bar every night and he risks himself by driving alone on that rushing highway…..now a more bad condition is arriving that he; in spite of episodes goes to a bar. I mean is he turning to alcoholism because he is showing such symptoms……..we will take him to doctor soon…just wanted to have some of your views…

A. Your bro might be self medicating in an effort to gain control of his emotions. A good psychopharmacist may be able to both diagnose and find the right treatment for him! Hopefullt he is willing!
