Postpartum depression is a non-psychotic major or minor depressive episode that occurs during pregnancy or within 12 months of post-partum period. The nature of symptoms is same as depressive episode characterized by depressed mood, anxiety, sleep difficulties, suicidal thoughts, tiredness and diminished interest in pleasurable activities. Severe maternal depression affects children by increasing the risk of emotional and behavioral and physical health problems and cognitive difficulties. Thus early screening and intervention is critical in reducing the negative impact of PND in the mother and child, family and the community. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, pharmacokinetics and antidepressant efficacy of sub-anesthetic dose of intravenous ketamine in perinatal depression.

The Primary objective of this study is to determine whether patients who receive sugammadex immediately after tracheal extubation will exhibit a decrease in the incidence of postoperative residual paralysis and an associated decrease in the incidence of postoperative respiratory depression (which can precede critical respiratory events, CRE). The Secondary objectives are to: a) determine whether patients receiving sugammadex will have a normal TOF ratio (>0.90) indicative of full neuromuscular recovery in the PACU; and b) to improve patient safety by documenting whether postoperative respiratory depression (decreased MV below 80% and 40% of predicted MV as assessed by a Respiratory Volume Monitor) is due to opioid administration vs. postoperative residual neuromuscular block (by comparing postoperative VAS scores and total opioid administered).

The purpose of this study is to test the following hypotheses: 1. Enteral glutamine administration decreases in-hospital mortality in adult patients with severe thermal burn injuries. 2. Enteral glutamine administration decreases hospital-acquired blood stream infections from Gram negative organisms and length of stay in ICU and hospital for adult patients with severe thermal burn injuries. 3. Enteral glutamine administration will improve the physical function of surviving burn injured patients and reduce their cost of care. The objectives of this trial are to determine the overall treatment effect and safety of glutamine in burn patients. Specifically, the investigators want to assess the following outcomes in a sample of 1200 patients in 80 sites: 1. In patients with severe, life-threatening burn injury, what is the effect of enteral glutamine on time to discharge alive from hospital 2. In patients with severe, life-threatening burn injury, what is the effect of enteral glutamine on 6 month mortality, hospital-acquired blood stream infections from Gram negative organisms, hospital mortality, duration of stay in ICU and hospital, health-related quality of life, and health care resources?

This study evaluates a technology-enabled decision aid that provides evidence-based education (i.e. on understanding the condition, treatment options and comparisons, patient values and question & answer quiz) and personalized, quantifiable benefit-risk ratio alongside the level of potential benefit in relation to joint stiffness, joint pain and quality of life. The study will be performed in the setting of an integrated care system providing patient-centered care for hip and knee osteoarthritis over the full cycle of care. The impact of a technology-enabled decision aid incorporating predictive analytics with machine learning capabilities on decision quality, activation, experience & limitations of patients in this setting is relatively unknown.
