Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a noninvasive technique applied in persistent neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression, posttraumatic stress, Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a noninvasive technique applied in persistent neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression, posttraumatic stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder ( OCD) or other non-psychiatric pathologies. Its use is activating them directly stimulate brain regions, as in the case of the prefrontal cortex and other areas associated with the regulation of mood, using electrical energy that travels through a stimulation coil to create a powerful magnetic field. During a treatment session, the energy of the field is transferred into the brain of a patient through the skin and skull. The advantages of this method is that it is painless and without surgery or sedation. ...

Pelvic pain features occur in the lower abdomen as both intermittent steadily. Pelvic pain in women can occur during menstruation or during intercourse. It may be a sign that there is a problem in the pelvic organs such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes or the vagina. To discover the cause of the pain suffered by the patient, several clinical tests must be performed, and the treatment of pelvic pain depends on the results. Women may also experience an infection of the lining of the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which is caused by bacteria that cause chlamydia and gonorrhea. ...
Polysomnography is a noninvasive and painless test that allows the study of sleep stages (REM and non-REM) and its various modifications. It is indicated to diagnose possible disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, excessive sleepiness, restless legs syndrome or sleep terrors, among others. Overall, polysomnography is done at night, in specialized centers or at home, and while the patient sleeps, placing electrodes on your chin, scalp and the outer edge of the eyelids, other monitors in the chest. The system records different variables: the blood pressure, EEG activity, eye, muscle, heart and lung. It measures the time it takes the patient to fall asleep and duration of different sleep stages. A specialist observes from another room, the person being tested while sleeping and a polygraph records and stores the information of the different physiological signals, which will then be performed for diagnosis. The sleep period could also be recorded on video for later analysis. ...
Restless legs syndrome, known by its acronym SPI (or acronyms in English RLS) affects about four million people in Spain and characterized by strange and unpleasant sensations in the legs caused as a result of a neurological disorder, symptoms to increase their involvement in patients with stress. Anyone can suffer although RLS usually occurs more frequently in patients with diabetes, Parkinson's disease, kidney disease and iron deficiency. Furthermore, due to its symptoms, it causes akathisia, urgent need to have legs in constant motion, with inability to keep still. Although there is no cure for this disease, treatment is aimed at reducing stress in order to contribute to muscle relaxation. ...
Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing that occurs moments after falling asleep and loud snoring preceded by at least 10 seconds. If this process is repeated 5 times per hour of sleep we will face the Obstructive sleep apnea. Obstruction of breathing leads to lower oxygen levels in the body that makes it difficult for the person to have a restful sleep and show signs of fatigue in the morning. Moreover, the persistence of this lack of oxygen could cause pulmonary hypertension and heart failure future right or myocarditis, making it convenient to catch it early and make appropriate tests for safe diagnosis. Therefore it is conducting a sleep study to establish a treatment that includes changing some habits (diet, alcohol withdrawal, postural changes ...) and prescribing a CPAP, a pressure generator as required nasal mask that keeps the airway obstruction, obliterating snoring and promoting restful sleep. In some cases surgery may be required if there are any lesions in the respiratory tract or when use of the mask is not effective. ...
Sleep disorders are a group of disorders that occur in preventing sleep stages enjoy a proper rest, continuous and restful. This type of disorder can have several causes, such as physical or psychological disease (hyperthyroidism, anxiety ...), and even cause other diseases or problems in daily life (fatigue, poor performance, daytime sleepiness ...). Therefore the medical diagnosis is necessary to determine their causes. Among the most common sleep disorders are distinguished: insomnia, which is the inability to fall or stay asleep properly according to the physical needs of each person; It is sleepwalking, which is a state in which the person stands up and acts in a semi-conscious during sleep, unaware of what you do not remember; night terrors, fear episodes of agitation that may be associated with sleepwalking; or nightmares, which are unpleasant and frightening dreams that cause a rude awakening in both children and adults. ...
