D8 - Response to other students.

Please response to the students posting below. write as if you are the student. up to 100 words per task. Thanks Hopkins! task#MN:For my article this week, I chose a PBS piece titled, Soldiers of Conscience. The article discusses many different aspects of PTSD including the signs and symptoms; reliving or re-experiencing the event, avoidance, emotional numbing and increased anger, irritability or difficulty sleeping. The article also discusses some statistics about PTSD, approximately 20% of soldiers return from combat exhibit PTSD symptoms. It states that there is a direct correlation between taking a life and witnessing atrocities PTSD in combat veterans. They also discuss ways for veterans to reach out and receive the help needed for PTSD and other mental health issues. Lastly, they discuss one of the main reasons that military members and veterans do not seek help, the stigma of being perceived as weak. http://www.pbs.org/pov/soldiersofconscience/post-traumatic-stress-disorder/ task#AC:Every Sunday evening, at 6:00 p.m. my very favorite news program airs. 60 Minutes recently aired a radio program geared at bringing to light the effects of PTSD on our Veterans. A synopsis of the program was featured in this article. I did know some of what PTSD entailed, but I was not aware that during both the Korean and Viet Nam wars it was called “Shell Shock.” This phrase depicted the trauma a military soldier experienced during those wars. I also did not know until I read this article it was first called PTSD in 1980 by the American Psychiatric Association. There was not enough help for those who experienced PTSD in the earlier wars; however, strides have been taken to bring it to the forefront and now programs are available to those who need it. I could not find a secure link to the radio program so, if anyone runs across it - send it on! Post-traumatic stress disorder's effect on U.S. veterans explored on CBS Radio News. (n.d.).

What caught my attention is that the article was written by, Harry Croft, M.D., a former Army doctor and psychiatrist. Throughout my military career, I have been treated by several doctors and psychiatrists. My own experiences with military doctors made me curious about the article’s viewpoints from Dr. Croft’s perspective. With health care being covered in the military, everyone is limited in choice of doctor or type of care. Soldiers and family members are normally assigned a doctor and rarely get to choose. Military doctors change duty assignments the same as any other soldier and rotates 3 years at a time. In Dr. Croft’s article (2014), he raises the issue that veteran PTSD sufferers often seek care from their PCP (Primary Care Physicians) instead of the VA (Veteran’s Administration) doctors. Primary care physicians “simply don’t have the specific training to recognize or treat combat-related PTSD” (Croft, 2014). Most often, they prescribe antidepressants and fail to recognize the underlying issue. The inability to diagnose PTSD in veterans doesn’t always rest on the PCP. If patients fail to mention being in combat, it may be misdiagnosed as stress. “To ensure that a proper diagnosis of PTSD is not missed, better education for both veterans and primary care physicians needs to become the new standard protocol” (2014). References Croft, H. (2014, January 23). Recognizing the ‘Silent Killer’ of the Military: PTSD.
