Sample text

Third, in the coping stage, the individual chooses and uses a strategy to cope with the stressor (Lazarus, 1999; Lazarus & Folkman, 1984). The model emphasizes that there is no universally best strategy for effective coping, that most individuals employ a variety of coping strategies over time and in different stressful situations, and it respects the fluid complexity of most stressful conditions (Folkman & Lazarus, 1985). Coping strategies are conceptualized to function as either problem-focused coping, strategies that attempt to change the stressful situation or the relationship between the individual and the stressful context, or emotion-focused coping, in which the individual alters his or her appraisal or emotional reaction to the stressful situation (Lazarus, 1999).

Cost The national direct and indirect costs of health care are discussed in detail in Chapter 2, and costs specific to each disease are discussed in the following chapters that address these health conditions. The cost of treatment to each individual patient or family is, however, another matter. For any costs that are not covered by medical insurance for medication, supplies, travel to appointments, or particular foodstuffs for dietary needs, the burden falls on the patient and his or her family.

For example, for a patient accessing emergency services for shortness of breath and chest pain, myocardial infarction (heart attack) and pulmonary embolism (a blood clot occluding vessels in the lungs) can be acutely fatal, and requires immediate assessment. A panic attack, however, is not an acutely fatal condition, and will therefore be lower in priority on the physician’s differential diagnosis. Due to this prioritizing of etiology by lethality, however, many clinicians conclude their assessment after ruling out the potentially lethal medical conditions before assessing the psychosocial phenomena, which may be seen by critical care clinicians as either superfluous or outside the role of acute critical care.
