    Summary: The chapters in Essentials of Cardiac Anesthesia for Noncardiac Surgery have been written by acknowledged experts in each specific area, and the material has been coordinated to maximize its clinical value. Recent information has been integrated from anesthesiology, surgery, cardiology, critical care medicine, and clinical pharmacology to present a complete clinical picture. This “essential” information will assist the clinician in understanding the basic principles of each subject and facilitate their application in practice. Because of the large volume of information presented, several teaching aids have been included to help highlight the most important clinical information. Teaching boxes include many of the key take-home messages. In addition, the Key Points at the start of each chapter highlight the major areas covered. Finally, each chapter includes a list of Suggested Reading for additional information, rather than an extensive list of references.

    Summary: Kenneth Warren was a powerful figure in twentieth century medicine whose work transformed public health policy and tropical medicine, and who left a profound legacy in global health thinking. A prolific writer and researcher, Warren was respected for his scientific research, winning awards and accolades, while his later role as activist, agitator, innovator and connoisseur of science brought him international recognition. His career in medicine is remembered for three enduring achievements: · His efforts to introduce modern biomedical science to the study of infectious diseases in the developing world · The proselytising energy he brought to the ethical challenge of how to provide the most cost-effective health care to the world's poorest people · His tenure as Director of Health Sciences at the Rockefeller Foundation, during which time he inaugurated the Great Neglected Diseases of Mankind Programme Told through personal interviews with both Warren's supporters and detractors, the story of Warren's career, inexorably interwoven with the GND programme, is a compelling narrative that has not only enduring implications for current medical research, funding and healthcare across the globe, but also a long-standing legacy for the future ways in which we combat disease in the developing world.

    Summary: The book covers various aspects of the management of keratoconus, which is a leading cause of visual impairment in young adults. It focuses on the epidemiology and risk factors of keratoconus with a special focus on Southeast Asia. Keratoconus affects the quality of vision, thereby affecting the quality of life. While most patients present with defective vision, many are diagnosed accidentally during screening for refractive surgery. The book covers the varied epidemiology of keratoconus across different parts of the world. It discusses many systemic and ocular diseases associated with keratoconus. The book covers the newer diagnostic techniques and various treatment procedures for keratoconus, helping in diagnosing keratoconus in the early stages and closely watching the progression. It discusses various contact lenses to improve vision quality; widely used collagen crosslinking, and its various modifications for halting the progression. It also explains the surgical approach for keratoconus, such as penetrating keratoplasty, lamellar keratoplasty and other lens-assisted procedures. The book is relevant for general ophthalmologists and cornea specialists.

    Summary: "The family Falconidae constitutes a group of small to medium-sized diurnal raptors whose monophyly is strongly supported. Kestrels are included in the subfamily Falconinae. There are at least 13 species that belong to the kestrel group, but recent genetic studies suggest that the number of kestrel species might be larger, possibly 16. The paleontological and molecular evidences are congruent in suggesting an evolutionary radiation of kestrels from the Late Miocene (5.6 to 9.8 million years ago) through the Early Pleistocene"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: This book presents the latest data from basic research and clinical trials supporting the effectiveness of ketamine as a treatment for depression, bipolar disorder, and suicidal behavior, setting these positive findings within the context of the serious problem of ketamine abuse. The first part of the book focuses on the evidence regarding ketamine abuse, with specific reference to Asian countries, and discusses countermeasures and complication management. It then addresses the mechanisms underlying the antidepressant and side effects of ketamine, which have remained elusive, describing and discussing important new research findings. Further, it explains insights gained from whole brain imaging in rodents and from behavioral pharmacology, and presents evidence regarding the role of gut microbiota, the NMDA receptor GluN2D subunit, and the lateral habenula in the actions of ketamine. These advances form the basis for the safer use of ketamine in patients with treatment-resistant depression and are expected to lead to the development of new antidepressants. -- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: Short case studies, based on real stories from the health care arena, ensure that each chapter of this book is rooted in descriptions of nursing practise that are grounded, salient narratives of nursing care. The reader is assisted to explore the ethical dimension of nursing practice: what it is and how it can be portrayed, discussed, and analysed within a variety of practice and theoretical contexts. One of the unique contributions of this book is to consider nursing not only in the context of the individual nurse-patient relationship but also as a social good that is of necessity limited, due to the ultimate limits on the nursing and health care resource. This book will help the reader consider what good nursing looks like, both within the context of limitations on resources and under conditions of scarcity. Indeed, any discussion of ethical issues in nursing should be well grounded in a conceptualisation of nursing that nursing students and practising nursing can recognise, accept and engage with. Nursing, like medicine, social work and teaching has a clear moral aim--to do good. In the case of nursing to do good for the patient. However it is vital that in the pressurised, constrained health service of the 21st century, we help nurses explore what this might mean for nursing practice and what can reasonably be expected of the individual nurse in terms of good nursing care.

    Summary: This book adds in chapter 1 and 2 the MIN-key techniques Laser and sealing, completing the 3 MIN-key techniques of the first volume. In chapter 3 the evolution of anatomy to a key-concept of MIN is described, presenting theory and reality of anatomical perspectives that can be used by the MIN-surgeon directly in the OR. Anatomy must be elaborated according to Gestalt-Theory to become a Key of MIN. Still anatomy is the "House of Medicine", giving a mental place to all knowledge, theories and biological functions. The "surgical simulation concept" of chapter 4 as trainings environment follows, also as a key-concept of MIN. In this chapter we draw the line from Gestalt-Anatomy to a Surgical Simulation Application in Pathological Anatomy exemplified in aneurysm cases. Chapter 5 presents the best preservation technique of anatomical perishable matter, forming durable, dry and odorless specimen of unknown precision and beauty. The scientific value of this unique technique and the benefit for MIN are shown by many examples.With the Plastination gallery of chapter 6 the best head-plastinates and sheet-plastinates of head and brain complete the volume. Many of the specimen have been shown around the globe in the famous exhibitions "body worlds" (Prof. Dr. G. v. Hagens/Inventor of Plastination).

    Summary: "The book offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of key issues in perinatal mental health. Classic topics such as screening, assessment, pharmacological, psychological and psychosocial interventions of the most common conditions (depression, anxiety disorders, etc.) are combined with lesser known issues, such as mother-infant relationship disorders or thoughts of infant-related harm and aggressive behaviors, sleep disturbances in puerperium, obsessional disorders, fetal death etc., paying particular attention to specific groups of perinatal patients like mothers with cancer, adolescents, fathers, migrants, and preterm babies. The chapters written by health professionals working in hospitals, community services or voluntary agencies alternate with contributions from researchers whose fields of expertise include biology and neuroscience, diagnosis and special needs, treatment and prognosis, etc., striking a balance between scientific investigation and clinical practice.The book offers a valuable tool for a wide range of professionals like psychiatrists, psychologists, gynecologists, midwives, oncologists, pediatricians, and social workers, who want to improve their clinical practice and the effectiveness of their treatment pathways using evidence from perinatal health research."-- Provided by publisher

    Summary: "This edition includes new chapters and updates of prior chapters designed to keep pace with the many exciting innovations in radiation oncology. It is our hope that this edition will bring readers from yesterday's standard of care to today's state of the art and provide a peek over the horizon at the dawn of a new era in which the science and the art of radiation oncology come together as never before. The science includes new understanding of the potential lurking within discoveries in physics, biology and technology. The art is the integrated clinical application of those discoveries, in concert with advances in systemic therapies. For example, there is a new chapter on the treatment planning implications of combined immunotherapy and radiation. This and other chapters hold clues that may lead us beyond local control of an individual tumor to a future in which a systemic response may be ignited by the application of modern radiation techniques and systemic therapies in proper sequence and intensity. In addition, there is a re-focus on the patient, beginning with a new chapter on treatment planning and patient safety"-- Provided by publisher.

    Summary: This book is the first title that focuses exclusively on kidney disease and its impact in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. The increasing prevalence of vascular risk factors such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension coupled with increased longevity has resulted in a worldwide epidemic of cardiovascular and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Never has the impact of one organ system on the other been so profound, as in the current context of cardio-renal interactions. The cross talk between the heart and kidneys is highly relevant in the field of interventional cardiology, given the increasing number of trans-catheter procedures being performed in patients with underlying kidney disease. These procedures also have a significant impact on kidney function and require thoughtful interdisciplinary planning by a cardiorenal team, to achieve optimal outcomes This book assembles the collective expertise of several international leaders in the field of interventional cardiology and nephrology to summarize this complex interface. The book is divided into seven sections to comprehensively cover the topic, including sections on best practices with reduction of contrast associated acute kidney injury, cutting edge techniques to minimize kidney risk with complex interventions, impact of transcatheter valvular procedures on kidney function and the utility of cardio-nephrology teams. Less recognized complications with high morbidity such as athero-embolic renal disease are featured prominently, to increase awareness in the interventional cardiology and nephrology communities. This book is a valuable resource for interventional and structural cardiologists, general cardiologists and nephrologists dealing with the significant overlap areas between these two specialties. It is also relevant to medical students, trainee physicians in nephrology and cardiology, advanced care practitioners and nursing personnel in both specialties . Given the major impact of kidney function on outcome s in patients undergoing cardiac procedures, this textbook serves as a focal point to integrate relevant clinical data from both specialties and help interventional cardiologists achieve optimal outcomes, especially in patients with (or at risk for) kidney disease.

    Summary: "With the increased prevalence of kidney transplantation, transplant recipients are being treated in a variety of clinical settings -- often beyond the transplant center. There is a greater need for clinicians and allied healthcare professionals to have appropriate guidance on managing these patients. Kidney Transplantation offers the latest evidencebased information on the full range of dilemmas in the medical management of kidney transplant recipients before, during and after transplantation. Beginning with the selection of patients who are candidates for transplantation, this authoritative guide covers the care of the patient on the waiting list and evaluation of donors, preoperative care, induction and immunosuppression maintenance. This wealth of new information and guidelines will serve as an important resource for the best possible care for transplant patients."--Publisher's website.

    Summary: This book presents state of the art knowledge on all aspects of kidney transplantation in recipients in whom desensitization strategies are necessary in order to overcome immunologic barriers such as anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) donor-specific antibody and ABO blood group incompatibility. Readers will find detailed, up-to-date information on the various immunomodulating therapies that may be employed in these circumstances and the outcomes that may be expected. Full guidance is provided on preoperative evaluation and management and post-transplantation care. In addition, the pathology of antibody-mediated rejection and acute cellular rejection in this context is discussed. For most patients with end-stage renal disease, kidney transplantation offers significant benefits compared with dialysis, but especially sensitization to HLAs remains a major clinical obstacle to success. Kidney Transplantation in Sensitized Patients will assist in achieving optimal results in individual patients. It will be an important resource for everyone involved in the care of kidney transplant recipients.

    Summary: "In 1997, this groundbreaking book made a powerful entrance into the national conversation on race. In a media landscape dominated by racially biased images of welfare queens and crack babies, Killing the black body exposed America's systemic abuse of Black women's bodies. From slave masters' economic stake in bonded women's fertility to government programs that coerced thousands of poor Black women into being sterilized as late as the 1970s, these abuses pointed to the devaluation of Black motherhood--and the neglect of Black women's reproductive needs in mainstream feminist and civil rights agendas. Now, some two decades later, Killing the Black body remains as crucial as ever--a rallying cry for education, awareness, and action on extending reproductive justice to all women"--Page 4 of cover.

    Summary: Knee ligament injuries are very common and are frequently sports related, although they may arise from trauma experienced during everyday activities. This book provides in-depth descriptions of the extra articular surgical techniques that may be employed when performing ligament reconstruction in patients with injuries involving the posterolateral and posteromedial corners of the knee. It is intended as a practical, how to manual that will be of value for both the trainee and the more experienced surgeon. Many of the techniques relate to the central pivot of the knee, i.e. the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments. For each technique, indications, presurgical planning, postsurgical follow-up and complications are discussed in addition to the surgical details. Numerous tips and pearls are provided and the techniques are clearly depicted in informative high-quality illustrations.

    Summary: "With this collection of more than fifty pieces on politics, photography, travel, history, and literature, Teju Cole solidifies his place as one of today's most powerful and original voices. On page after page, deploying prose dense with beauty and ideas, he finds fresh and potent ways to interpret art, people, and historical moments, taking in subjects from Virginia Woolf, Shakespeare, and W.G. Sebald to Instagram, Barack Obama, and Boko Haram. Cole brings us new considerations of James Baldwin in the age of Black Lives Matter; the African American photographer Roy DeCarava, who, forced to shoot with film calibrated exclusively for white skin tones, found his way to a startling and true depiction of black subjects; and (in an essay that inspired both praise and pushback when it first appeared) the White Savior Industrial Complex, the system by which African nations are sentimentally aided by an America "developed on pillage." Persuasive and provocative, erudite yet accessible, Known and Strange Things is an opportunity to live within Teju Cole's wide-ranging enthusiasms, curiosities, and passions, and a chance to see the world in surprising and affecting new frames."--Publisher's description.
