What is muscle confusion?

Training approach

Episodes_of_decreased_consciousness
The concept is to change up a variety of different exercises over time so your muscles won't know what's coming next, with the theory that this will speed build-up of muscle mass and strength. It was popular in the 80's but still unproven that it is better than other forms of exercise in achieving good outcomes. What is needed is consistent exercise of various muscle groups.

What is nipple confusion?

Nipple confusion

Nipple_confusion
Breastfeeding and bottle feeding are very different with respect to the way a baby needs to suck. Breastfeeding requires the baby to have a wide open mouth with the tongue down and curled under the nipple. Some babies can become "confused" if artificial nipples from pacifiers and or bottles are introduced early, before breastfeeding is well established.

Does nipple confusion exist?

Yes

Breastfeeding_and_bottlefeeding
Simple thought process... Does YOUR nipple look like the nipple on the bottle? Of course not, and so baby will naturally react differently to both forms of feeding. Many babies will still do fine no matter what, but SOME babies will have troubles switching back and forth. This MAY create troubles with breastfeeding and so try to avoid doing both unless 100% necessary.

Dr. William Goldie answered:

What can you do for confusion?

What?

Heterosexual
We all suffer confusion at times. Stress, lack of sleep, too much to drink, too many medications all can cause confusion. Progressive memory problems may be serious. If more straight forward causes are not evident, a thorough neurological or psychological evaluation would be appropriate.

Dr. Kerrie Pinkney answered:

Can confusion in sepsis be resolved?

Yes

Healthy_diet
The confusion can occur because of the infection itself, low blood pressure, or low oxygen levels in the blood or all of the above. Once the underlying infection is treated and oxygen delivery to the brain and blood pressure are improved, it nearly always resolves. One exception may be if there is brain infection.
