Many times, the Impasse tends to go unnoticed. It gets confused with other clinical phenomena, which makes it necessary to illuminate it in a special way. Its approach and complex technical implementation depends on it. In this episode she tries to look at the topics mentioned, emphasizing the necessary diagnosis and the vicissitudes of its approach.
