Text for Summarization

Summarize the reading texts and make it a habit!

DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine) is a hallucinogenic tryptamine drug that occurs naturally in many plants and animals. It is also referred to as the “spirit molecule” due to the intense psychedelic experience. Although lesser known than other psychedelics such as LSD or magic mushrooms, DMT produces a brief but intense visual and auditory hallucinogenic experience.

DMT is a Schedule I controlled substance in the United States; this means that it is illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute the drug. The substance has a high potential for abuse, no recognized medical use, and a lack of accepted safety parameters for the use of the drug. DMT has no approved medical use in the United States but can be used by researchers under a Schedule I research registration that requires approval from both the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Despite its illegal status, DMT is used in some religious ceremonies and various settings for an “awakening” or to obtain deep spiritual insight. DMT is a white crystalline powder that is derived from certain plants found in Mexico, South America, and parts of Asia, such as Psychotria viridis and Banisteriopsis caapi.

It is typically consumed in the following ways:

  • Vaporized or smoked in a pipe
  • Consumed orally in brews like ayahuasca
  • Snorted or injected on rare occasions

The chemical root structure of DMT is similar to the anti-migraine drug sumatriptan, and it acts as a non-selective agonist at most or all of the serotonin receptors, particularly at the serotonin 5-ht2a receptor. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that has a large effect on the majority of our brain cells. There is some evidence that DMT is also produced endogenously, in other words, it is produced naturally in the body, specifically in the pineal gland in the brain.

When smoked, the average dose of DMT is believed to be somewhere between 30 to 150 milligrams (mg), and the onset of action can be felt almost instantly. The effects peak and plateau for 3 to 5 minutes, and gradually drop off with the duration of effect totaling 30 to 45 minutes. When consumed as a brew, the dose is between 35 to 75 mg. Effects begin after 30 to 45 minutes, peak after 2 to 3 hours and are resolved in 4 to 6 hours.

The use of DMT can be traced back hundreds of years and is often associated with religious practices or rituals. The drug is the active ingredient in ayahuasca, a traditional South American brewed tea. DMT is used illicitly for its psychoactive, hallucinogenic effects. “Spiritual insight” is one of the most commonly reported positive side effects of the drug. The vast majority of new DMT users are already experienced with using psychedelic drugs, and as is the case with other illegal hallucinogens, users often obtain the drug through the Internet.

Research from the Global Drug Survey carried out in 2016 reported 2.24 percent of people used DMT in the last 12 months. It was among the least used drugs overall, with only kratom and modafinil used less. The main effect of DMT is psychological, with intense visual and auditory hallucinations, euphoria, and an altered sense of space, body, and time.

Many users describe profound, life-changing experiences such as visiting other worlds, talking with alien entities known as “DMT elves” or “machine elves,” and total shifts in the perception of identity and reality. When smoked, DMT produces brief yet intense visual and auditory hallucinations that have been described by users as an alternate reality, otherworldly, or a near-death experience. In comparison to other psychedelic drugs, such as LSD, ketamine, and magic mushrooms, recreational users of DMT consider it to have the lowest side effect profile.

Possible side effects of DMT include:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Agitation
  • Dilated pupils
  • Rapid rhythmic movements of the eye
  • Dizziness
  • When taken orally, DMT can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Depending on the individual user, the DMT experience can range from intensely exciting to overwhelmingly frightening. The experience can be so powerful that users may have difficulty processing and integrating the “trip” into their real life. Mental side effects may linger for many days or weeks after ingestion of the drug.

Labeling a Paragraph

How to label?

As you know, Part C Reading is 90% comprised of finding out what a particular paragraph mentions. In other words, you have to tell what each paragraph is about.

Let’s look at a few official examples. Here is the first paragraph of the text and the 7th question:

Millions of people who suffer sleep problems also suffer myriad health burdens. In addition to emotional distress and cognitive impairments, these can include high blood pressure, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. ‘In the studies we’ve done, almost every variable we measured was affected. There’s not a system in the body that’s not affected by sleep,’ says University of Chicago sleep researcher Eve Van Cauter. ‘Every time we sleep-deprive ourselves, things go wrong.’

7. In the first paragraph, the writer uses Eve Van Cauter’s words to

A. Explain the main causes of sleep deprivation.
B. Reinforce a view about the impact of sleep deprivation.
C. Question some research findings about sleep deprivation.
D. Describe the challenges involved in sleep deprivation research.

Now, let’s apply labeling to find out the right choice! For this you have to summarize the entire paragraph into a label that consists of a word or a very few words, say, 5! Look at the paragraph again and read the labels below. Which summarizes the paragraph at its best?

Millions of people who suffer sleep problems also suffer myriad health burdens. In addition to emotional distress and cognitive impairments, these can include high blood pressure, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. ‘In the studies we’ve done, almost every variable we measured was affected. There’s not a system in the body that’s not affected by sleep,’ says University of Chicago sleep researcher Eve Van Cauter. ‘Every time we sleep-deprive ourselves, things go wrong.’

Step 1 – Original split into paragraphs

  1. Millions of people who suffer sleep problems also suffer myriad health burdens.
  2. In addition to emotional distress and cognitive impairments, these can include high blood pressure, obesity, and metabolic syndrome.
  3. ‘In the studies we’ve done, almost every variable we measured was affected. There’s not a system in the body that’s not affected by sleep. Every time we sleep-deprive ourselves, things go wrong.’ says University of Chicago sleep researcher Eve Van Cauter.

Step 2 – Known information removed

  1. People who suffer sleep problems also suffer health burdens.
  2. Emotional distress, cognitive impairments, high blood pressure, obesity, metabolic syndrome.
  3. Studies – almost every variable affected. All systems in the body is affected by sleep. Sleep-deprivation upset body and mind – Eve Van Cauter.

Step 3 – Crunching

  1. Sleep problems > health burdens.
  2. Impact on mind and body.
  3. Eve Van Cauter – No sleep, no health

Step 4 – Final Labeling

Sleep deprivation and health by Eve Van Cauter.

Now look at question number 7 and check which option is close to our label:

7. In the first paragraph, the writer uses Eve Van Cauter’s words to

  1. Explain the main causes of sleep deprivation.
  2. Reinforce a view about the impact of sleep deprivation.
  3. Question some research findings about sleep deprivation.
  4. Describe the challenges involved in sleep deprivation research.

The answer is B, “Reinforce a view about the impact of sleep deprivation.” 

Now the final problem is the problem of similarity. For many, all the options look correct! This is because the given paragraph vaguely touches some of the aspects in each option. How to look for the correct answer?

A. Explain the main causes of sleep deprivation.

The label does not have the word “causes.” Nowhere in the paragraph it mentions “causes.”

B. Reinforce a view about the impact of sleep deprivation.

The label does not have the word reinforce but altogether it is a reinforcement!

C. Question some research findings about sleep deprivation.

The label or paragraph does not have the word “Question” nor does it anywhere question anything.

D. Describe the challenges involved in sleep deprivation research.

Challenges are discussed in the paragraph but nothing about challenges in research.

Warm Up Question

Warm Up

Warm up questions are asked under a friendly atmosphere. These are interview questions and you can easily answer them.

Today’s Warm up Question:

Speak about a patient who has appropriately acknowledged the service that you once extended to him / her.

Sample Reply 1

English Melon

It is hard to get acknowledgement in most of the professions, especially in nursing. What happens is, patients forget to return a word of gratitude to their doctors and nurses once they recover from a dreadful disease that had kept them in the critical list. However, I still remember Mr Richard who was in my care for three days in a hospital in the Middle East where I worked for six months.

Mr Richard was a postoperative patient in the cardiac ICU and I was one of the duty nurses. He had a strong family support but during that time all his family members were touring the Americas. He was an independent man but after the surgery, he developed dependence. He could not manage his daily activities without one of us. Whenever he had pain in the incision areas, he used to call me to his side and speak. Soon I saw that this gentleman was surrounded by a strong family that didn’t make him strong – I mean, he was in an abandoned state. I felt pity for him and that was the starting of an attachment between the two of us. When he got discharged, he got my contact details. After a month, a year ago, I had a call from him asking if I would like to work in one of the leading hospitals in Dubai as nursing superintendent but I declined the offer with fond love. After all, I will not be comfortable in the Middle East. We still communicate.

ROLE PLAYER’S CARD

SETTING: Mayo Skin Care Clinic

PATIENT:

You are a college-going student, pursuing your graduation at a university in London. You are suffering from extreme redness of the skin. Your skin turns red when you go out every time. You are now at skin care clinic where you have undergone an examination. You are anxious to know that your “skin problem” is known as “Rosaceae” and that there is no treatment for it except regular use of face-cream and some tablets. The nurse also has asked you not to go out anywhere on hot days.

TASK:

  • Express your nervousness on knowing that there is no possible treatment for this.
  • Try to know more about when to apply or how to apply the cream etc or will there be any side effects of it or not etc.
  • Try to know more about what the diet shall be.

CANDIDATE’S CARD

SETTING: Mayo Skin Care Clinic

NURSE:

You are the head nurse at Mayo Skin Care Clinic. A patient has come for a skin problem. It is noted to be Rosaceae. The patient is very nervous to know this. The doctor at the clinic has sent him / her to you for further instructions to be received from you.

TASK:

  • Explain it to him / her that there is really no treatment for Rosaceae but it can easily be controlled.
  • Explain to him / her how and when to apply face cream or how it can reduce redness and make him / her look normal.
  • Explain this too that there will be no side effects of the face cream or the tablets. Advice him / her to bring some changes in his / her diet as well.
  • Advise him / her not to go out without applying sun screen lotion too

Task Role Play

Prepare a role play with the following input!

Fast facts on rosacea

  • The main symptom of rosacea is the development of facial pustules.
  • Other symptoms include blushing easily and inflamed blood vessels.
  • The exact causes are not known but a number of factors can trigger symptoms.
  • Some foods can worsen the symptoms, such as dairy products and spicy foods.

There is no cure for rosacea. However, there are various treatments which can relieve the signs and symptoms. A combination of medications and lifestyle changes generally give the best results. The doctor may prescribe camouflage creams that mask blemishes on the skin.

Medications

Treatment may involve a combination of prescribed topical medications (applied to the skin) and oral drugs (swallowing pills, tablets, or capsules). These include:

Topical medications: These help reduce inflammation and redness and are applied to the skin either once or twice a day. They are commonly used in combination with some oral medications. Antibiotics (metronidazole), tretinoin, benzoyl peroxide, and azelaic acid are examples of commonly prescribed topical medications.

  1. Oral antibiotics: These may be prescribed for their anti-inflammatory properties. Oral antibiotics tend to give faster results than topical ones. Examples include tetracycline, minocycline, and erythromycin.
  2. Laser treatment: For patients with visible blood vessels (telangiectasia) laser treatment, which uses intense pulsed light, can be used to shrink them. This will be done by a dermatologist. Although the procedure may cause some pain, most patients can tolerate it without the need for an anesthetic. Laser treatment can sometimes cause bruising, crusting of the skin, swelling, tenderness, and, very rarely, infection. These complications will usually disappear within a few weeks, although if it becomes infected it may require antibiotics.
  3. Plastic surgery for thickened skin (rhinophyma): If the patient develops a bulbous enlarged red nose and puffy cheeks, and possibly thick bumps on the lower half of the nose and the nearby cheek areas, they might be referred to a plastic surgeon. Laser or scalpel surgery may be performed to remove excess tissue and remodel the nose. A carbon dioxide laser can also be utilized to shrink the tissue.

Causes

Experts are not sure what causes rosacea. The following related factors are thought to contribute:

  1. Abnormalities in facial blood vessels: Skin specialists (dermatologists) suggest that abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face cause the flushing, persistent redness, and visible blood vessels. What causes the inflammation of the blood vessels is still a mystery.
  2. Light skin color: A much higher percentage of people with fair skin develop rosacea compared with other people.
  3. Demodex folliculorum (microscopic mite): Demodex folliculorum lives on human skin and usually causes no problems. However, patients with rosacea have much higher numbers of these mites than others do. It is unclear whether the mites cause the rosacea, or whether the rosacea causes the overpopulation of the mites.
  4. H. pylori bacteria: H. pylori, a bacteria found in the gut, stimulates the production of bradykinin, a small polypeptide known to cause blood vessels to dilate. Experts suggest that this bacterium may play a role in the development of rosacea.
    Family history (inheritance, genes): Many patients with rosacea have a close relative with the condition.

Rosacea triggers

Some factors can aggravate rosacea or make it worse by increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin; these include:

  1. Extremes of temperature
  2. Sunlight, humidity, or wind
  3. Stress, anxiety, anger, embarrassment
  4. Vigorous exercise
  5. Hot baths or saunas.
  6. some medications, such as corticosteroids and drugs for treating high blood pressure
  7. Acute medical conditions, such as a cold, cough, or fever
  8. Some chronic medical conditions – such as hypertension (high blood pressure)

Foods and drinks that may trigger rosacea include:

  1. Hot foods and beverages
  2. Caffeine
  3. Dairy products
  4. Spices and seasonings that contain capsaicin, for example, hot sauce, cayenne pepper, and red pepper alcohol, including wines and hard liquors foods containing cinnamaldehyde, such as tomatoes, chocolate, and citrus fruits

Symptoms

Many signs and symptoms are associated with rosacea, but they can vary considerably from person to person.

The following signs and symptoms tend to be present in most cases:

  1. Flushing (easily blushing): Flushing episodes can last as long as 5 minutes. The blush can spread from the face down to the neck and chest. Some people say the skin feels unpleasantly hot during flushing episodes.
  2. Facial skin hyper-reactivity: Sensitive blood vessels dilate easily to touch and some other physical stimuli, such as sunlight. Many mistakenly refer to this as “sensitive skin,” but, with rosacea, it is caused by sensitive blood vessels and not sensitive skin cells.
  3. Persistent redness: Sometimes, the flushing episodes may eventually be followed by bouts of persistent facial redness. The redness, like a patch of sunburn, may not go away. This occurs because hundreds of tiny blood vessels near the surface of the facial skin dilate (expand).
  4. Pimples, papules, and pustules (Inflammatory rosacea): Small spots, papules, and pustules sometimes appear on the face – this is also known as inflammatory rosacea. Misdiagnosis is common because of their similarity to teenage acne. However, with rosacea, the skin has no blackheads, unlike acne.
  5. Inflamed blood vessels (vascular rosacea): As the signs and symptoms of rosacea progress and get worse, small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks swell and become visible (telangiectasia) – they sometimes look like tiny spider webs. The skin on the face can become blotchy.
  6. Rhinophyma, or excess facial skin around the nose: Severe rosacea can result in the thickening of facial skin, especially around the nose. The nose can become bulbous and enlarged (rhinophyma). This is a very rare complication, and tends to affect males much more than females.
  7. Ocular rosacea: There is a burning, gritty sensation in the eyes, making them bloodshot. The inside of the eyelid may become inflamed (blepharitis) and appear scaly, causing conjunctivitis. Some people may not tolerate contact lenses and sties may develop. In very rare cases, vision can become blurred.
  8. Facial swelling: Excess fluid and proteins leak out of the blood vessels and eventually overwhelm the lymphatic system, which cannot drain the leakage away fast enough. This results in fluid buildup in the facial skin.

Natural remedies

These lifestyle and home measures will help to control symptoms, and can be used alongside any medical treatments. The key here is to minimize exposure to anything that may trigger symptoms or exacerbate them:

  1. When exposed to the sun, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.
  2. In wintertime, protect the face with a scarf or ski mask.
  3. Try to refrain from rubbing or touching the skin on the face.
  4. When washing, apply a gentle cleanser to problem areas.
  5. Do not use any facial products that contain skin irritants or alcohol.
  6. If skin is sore, use a moisturizer.
  7. Only apply moisturizers after topical medication has dried.
  8. Only use products labeled as noncomedogenic. These do not block the oil and sweat gland openings.
  9. Do not get too hot.
  10. Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages.
  11. An electric shaver is less likely to trigger flareups than normal razors.
  12. Avoid spicy foods.
  13. Build up a list of likely foods and drinks that might trigger an outbreak and avoid them.
  14. Green or yellow pre-foundation creams and powders may help mask the skin redness.
  15. Avoid over-the-counter (OTC) steroid creams unless your doctor has included them as part of your treatment. In the medium or long-term they may worsen symptoms.
  16. Stress
  17. Hectic and stressful lifestyles can trigger rosacea.
  18. Experts say stress is an important trigger of rosacea. Any measures to reduce stress levels will help prevent flare-ups and existing symptoms from getting worse.
  19. Steps to reduce stress may include regular exercise, getting at least 7 hours of good quality sleep every night, and eating a healthy and well-balanced diet.
  20. As vigorous exercise is often a trigger, patients with rosacea are advised to do low-intensity exercise, such as walking or swimming.
  21. Yoga, tai-chi, breathing exercise, and some meditations may also help reduce stress.

Diagnosis

  1. There is no clinical test for rosacea. A doctor reaches a diagnosis after examining the patient’s skin, and asking about symptoms and triggers. The presence of enlarged blood vessels will help the physician distinguish it from other skin disorders.
  2. The presence of a rash on the scalp or ears usually indicates a different or co-existing diagnosis. Rosacea signs and symptoms are mainly on the face.
  3. Early diagnosis and subsequent prompt treatment significantly reduce the risk of rosacea’s progression. If the doctor suspects there may be an underlying medical condition or illness, such as lupus, blood tests may be ordered. The doctor may refer the patient to a dermatologist.

And vs Along with

Learn how to use this word correctly!

And is used to combine two information of the same kind.
Along with is used when the second element has a different attribute.

Please look at this example:

“Domiciliary care needs to be contacted as a ramp along with bathroom aids need to be placed at her home.”

If you use “and” in the sentence above, the meaning will not conveyed properly.

“Domiciliary care needs to be contacted as a ramp and bathroom aids need to be placed at her home.”
