While such a response can be helpful in the short run, chronic (...) modalities support the learning of the relaxation response through the use of electrodes placed over muscles (e.g. EMG-assisted relaxation) which then provides immediate feedback to individuals regarding the success of their attempts to alter muscle tension. Related biofeedback techniques can be used to monitor bloodflow and sweating responses (i.e. other indicators of physiological arousal).

74. Clinical decision rules to rule out subarachnoid hemorrhage for acute headache.

Clinical decision rules to rule out subarachnoid hemorrhage for acute headache. IMPORTANCE: Three clinical decision rules were previously derived to identify patients with headache requiring investigations to rule out subarachnoid hemorrhage. OBJECTIVE: To assess the accuracy, reliability, acceptability, and potential refinement (ie, to improve sensitivity or specificity) of these rules in a new cohort of patients with headache. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: Multicenter cohort study conducted (...) at 10 university-affiliated Canadian tertiary care emergency departments from April 2006 to July 2010. Enrolled patients were 2131 adults with a headache peaking within 1 hour and no neurologic deficits. Physicians completed data forms after assessing eligible patients prior to investigations. MAIN OUTCOMES AND MEASURES: Subarachnoid hemorrhage, defined as (1) subarachnoid blood on computed tomography scan; (2) xanthochromia in cerebrospinal fluid; or (3) red blood cells in the final tube
