See Update Calendar inside. A publication for the SUNY Upstate Medical University Community MARCH 24 THROUGH APRIL 7, 2004 University Hospital participates in national trial for heart failure An innovative new treatment for chronic heart failure, in which a persons own immune system is targeted to reduce their risk of hospitalization and death, is now being tested at University Hospital. The hospital is one of 160 sites in North America and the only in Syracuse to test Vasogen Inc.s immune modulation therapy for chronic heart failure. Nearly five million Americans are living with heart failure and 550,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. The hearts inability to function as a pump leads to a decline in health for the patient and frequent hospitalizations and premature death. Chronic heart failure is the leading cause of hospital admissions for patients over 65. Under the new treatment, which uses immune modulation therapy (IMT), blood (approximately two teaspoons or 10 milliliters) is drawn from the patient and mixed with a small amount of a standard anticlotting agent. The sample is then placed in a special device where it is exposed Group therapy program uses cognitive-behavioral strategies Central New York adults who have been diagnosed with depression are welcome to participate in a 12-week group therapy program sponsored by SUNY Upstate Medical Universitys Adult Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic. The program uses cognitive-behavioral strategies to help participants lead a more productive and satisfying life. Sessions are held Tuesdays, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the clinics 713 Harrison Street location. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be an effective time-limited intervention for many adults with depression. CBT teaches practical skills that can be applied over a lifetime to improve everyday functioning, said Program Director Robbi Saletsky, PhD, a psychologist at the Adult Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic and clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at SUNY Upstate. Participants will rehearse new skills in the group each week. They will also have weekly practice homework assigncontinued on page 4 Take Note Convocation is Sept. 8 SUNY Upstate Medical Universitys Fall Faculty Convocation will be held Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 4 p.m. in the Weiskotten Hall Medical Alumni Auditorium.

This process takes between 20 and 30 minutes. The blood sample is then injected back into the body. The process is designed to reduce the chronic inflammation implicated in the development and progression of chronic heart failure by activating the immune systems physiological anti-inflammatory response to bad cells. Immune modulation therapy targets the destructive action of chronic inflammation in the body, said University Hospital cardiologist Robert Carhart, MD, who is leading the Syracuse study. continued on page 4 For health information, physician referral, and Upstate Medical University services, call Health Connections at 464-8668 calendar Wednesday, March 24 Employee Information Day. 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wsk.

The national clinical trial, called ACCLAIM, for Advanced Chronic Heart Failure Clinical Assessment of Immune Modulation Therapy, seeks to enroll about 2,000 patients. Enrollees must have diagnosed chronic heart failure and prior hospitalization or outpatient treatment with intravenous medication for heart failure within the past 12 months. To see if one is eligible for the clinical trial, call Mimi Weber at 464-9574. In an earlier similar study, patients who received IMT reported improvement in their condition and quality of life and were hospitalized less often than those who did not receive the treatment. Anesthesia Technicians Day SUNY Upstate will offer lunch to anesthesia technicians in celebration of National Anesthesia Technicians (A.T.) Day, March 31. The lunch will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the hospitals Operating Conference Room. The A.T.s will also receive recognition pins, courtesy of the Anesthesiology Department. The anesthesia technician is an active participant of the anesthesia team in the planning of the technical support for acceptable medical physiological monitoring. Technicians support the anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists by the preparation and set up of appropriate equipment and supplies for each surgical case, including connecting monitoring lines preparing infusion sets, applying to the patient, and operating all common physiological monitors, and drawing arterial lines and central lines, among others. ments. Practice can help lead them to a more rapid and complete change of thought patterns and behaviors. During the sessions, participants will learn CBT strategies that will help them to change self-defeating, unrealistically negative thoughts so that mood improves and they can better perform everyday activities. They will also learn to become more aware of the relationship between mood and activity and learn skills needed to counter feelings of isolation and social inadequacy. Groups consist of six to eight participants who may continue to meet with their individual therapists. Sessions are led by Dr. Saletsky and an advanced psychiatry resident. Participants will be asked to attend one or two initial screening session to assess whether group therapy will best meet their needs. One in four women and one in eight men will suffer at least one episode of depression during their life times. Symptoms of depression can last anywhere from a few weeks to years. Signs include sad mood; a reduction of interests for pleasurable activities; changes in appetite and in sleep pattern; lack of energy most days; feelings of guilt, worthlessness, agitation or anxiety; difficulty with concentration; hopeless or helpless thoughts and recurrent thoughts of death or suicide. The cost for each session is $78 with many insurance companies covering the cost of the treatment. To learn more about the group sessions, call Dr. Robbi Saletsky at 315-464-3115.

Donna Stoner, director of Volunteer Initiatives, says the Gift Shop needs to be closed by the end of April, but will likely close much earlier. All of our inventory has been drastically reduced and is selling very well, she said. Our final day of business will be determined by how much inventory we have left to sell. Stoner said there are no plans to open a temporary Gift Shop during the renovation, but popular items will be sold at Eckerds (located on the first floor), the cafeteria and the coffee cart, which will be relocated to Room 1500A. A new expanded gift shop will open in the lobby once the renovation is complete. The nearly $4 million lobby renovation, which is set to begin this spring, will transform the existing lobby into a two-story lobby with additional seating, wheelchair accessible revolving doors and an expanded entrance. A highlight of the new lobby will be the glass enclosed footbridge over East Adams Street to take patients from the hospital lobby to the parking garage. Patients will enter on the second floor and ascend staircase to lobby and patient information.

Poisonings arent just kidstuff Local poison center officials are hoping the attention March brings as National Poison Prevention Month will raise awareness that poisonings can happen at any age. Its not just the toddler who can get into trouble with poisonings, said Gail Banach, education coordinator for the Central New York Regional Poison Center. Adults and senior citizens are also very much at risk from an accidental poisoning. While most calls (52 percent) to the Central New York Poison Center are related to children under the age of six, two out of every 10 calls (23 percent) involve incidents related to individuals over the age of 30. Often, these calls are related to misreading drug labels where someone has accidentally taken too many cold tablets, Banach noted. Another example of poisonings in older adults, Banach said is sharing prescription medications with others. Physicians prescribe medications based on ones symptoms, weight, allergies and current intake of other medications, both over the counter U P S T A T E and prescription medicines. Sharing a prescription medication, selected for you, could produce dangerous results, she said. Poisonings among adults also happen as a result of substances placed in unlabeled containers or mislabeled pill bottles; exposure to environmental toxins, such as carbon monoxide; and the accidental misuse of cleaning materials. The Central New York Regional Poison Center responds to poison information calls to help prevent poisonings before they happen. In 2002, the center answered nearly 12,000 informational calls. The Central New York Regional Poison Center is a certified center of the American Association of Poison Control Centers and is affiliated with University Hospital. In case of a suspected poisoning or for poison information, call 1-800-222-1222. update 7 briefs S U N Y U p s t a t e M e d i c a l U n i v e r s i t y Mindful Path training begins April 13 SUNY Upstate Medical University will present The Mindful Path, an intensive training for healthcare providers offered as an eight-week program comprised of two-hour weekly sessions and one, six-hour Saturday retreat.
