Key Points

  • Changing the term from PTSD to PTSI (Post Traumatic Stress Injury) could reduce stigma and improve care for those suffering from trauma-related mental health issues.
  • The Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB), a procedure that involves an injection in the neck, has been shown to provide rapid relief for PTSD symptoms and is being explored for treatment of other conditions like depression and anxiety.
  • Understanding one's ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) score is crucial for first responders, as it can predict susceptibility to PTSD and inform the need for proactive mental health strategies.
