    Selected as a Book of the Year by The New York Times, The Economist, Independent, Observer and Mail on Sunday

    THE NEW YORK TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

    SHORTLISTED FOR THE WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE 2017

    ‘Dramatic and precise… [A] thrilling and comprehensive account of what seems certain to be the most radical, controversial and, to borrow from the subtitle, intimate science of our time… He is a natural storyteller… A page-turner… Read this book and steel yourself for what comes next’
    Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

    The Gene is the story of one of the most powerful and dangerous ideas in our history, from bestselling, prize-winning author Siddhartha Mukherjee.

    Spanning the globe and several centuries, The Gene is the story of the quest to decipher the master-code that makes and defines humans, that governs our form and function.

    This is an epic, moving history of a scientific idea coming to life, by the author of The Emperor of All Maladies. But woven through The Gene, like a red line, is also an intimate history – the story of Mukherjee’s own family and its recurring pattern of mental illness, reminding us that genetics is vitally relevant to everyday lives. These concerns reverberate even more urgently today as we learn to “read” and “write” the human genome – unleashing the potential to change the fates and identities of our children.

    The story of the gene begins in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where a monk stumbles on the idea of a ‘unit of heredity’. It intersects with Darwin’s theory of evolution, and collides with the horrors of Nazi eugenics in the 1940s. The gene transforms post-war biology. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, temperament, choice and free will. This is a story driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds – from Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel to Francis Crick, James Watson and Rosalind Franklin, and the thousands of scientists still working to understand the code of codes.

    Majestic in its ambition, and unflinching in its honesty, The Gene gives us a definitive account of the fundamental unit of heredity – and a vision of both humanity’s past and future.

    Am pornit la drum cu dorinta de a aduce un instrument de lucru care, tinand cont de situatia actuala din Romania, sa delimiteze testarile cu adevarat necesare de cele facultative sau complet inutile. Un alt rol al sau este facilitarea obtinerii unei solutii cat mai rapide si corecte in dilema: este sau nu permis in timpul sarcinii acest antibiotic? Dar acest vaccin?

    De ce o asemenea initiativa? Pentru ca nu suntem un popor al regulilor si al masurii in ceea ce facem asa ca avem in acelasi timp:

    gravide ce ajung sa nasca fara sa stie din timp ca sunt infectate cu VHB sau cu HIV astfel incat sa se poata da o sansa in plus sanatatii copiilor lor, dar si gravide suprainvestigate incat rezultatele testelor sunt contradictorii sau imposibil de interpretat

    medici care recomanda gravidelor fara indicatie serologie de Listeria sau alte teste inutile, dar si medici care nu recomanda nicio testare

    gravide care repeta de mai multe ori aceleasi teste intr-un interval de timp de cateva saptamani si ajung de multe ori sa nu mai creada in rezultatele acestora si sa actioneze la intamplare 

    medici care induc gravidei decizia de intrerupere a sarcinii pe baza unei interpretari fanteziste a rezultatelor testarilor recomandate de ei, dar si medici care neglijeaza sa transmita interpretarea acestor rezultate gravidei si sa ii faca recomandarile necesare.

    Pe parcursul elaborarii acestui ghid am realizat tot mai mult ca avem un bun prilej de a incerca sa facem din el si un instrument de lucru impotriva utilizarii excesive si/sau eronate de antibiotice in infectiile caracteristice si in cele frecvente la gravida/lauza.

    Lasand continutul ghidului sa indeplineasca rolul de instrument de lucru ne-am permis sa evidentiem unele obstacole in calea im­plementarii unei atitudini coerente in acest domeniu medical, sub forma de raspunsuri la cateva intrebari.

     Cand testam?

    Suntem inca una dintre acele state ale Uniunii Europene in care primul bilant al unei gravide se mai efectueaza cand travaliul s-a declansat. Despre planning si evaluare preconceptionala vorbim inca rar, iar sarcina este adesea privita drept o intamplare, un dar sau o problema; din pacate, si generalizarea evaluarii initiale a gravidei in primul trimestru ramane un deziderat de atins in anii ce vin.

     Cine recomanda testarile? Cine prescrie antibiotice, care anume si in ce situatii?

    La aceasta intrebare un raspuns unic este hazardat: ginecologul? Medicul de familie? Infectionistul? De fapt, raspunsul nu ar mai avea nicio relevanta daca ar exista un consens in privinta a ceea ce este necesar sa fie testat. Este insa evident ca actualul circuit, in care pe fluxul medic de familie – ginecolog – infectionist, de la ultima veriga se poate decide reluarea ciclului pentru testari omise la pasii anteriori sau se ajunge la inlocuirea/intreruperea administrarii unui antibiotic prescris gravidei in mod eronat/excesiv, este nefunctional. 

     

    Ce se testeaza?

    in domeniul patologiei infectioase se aplica insa foarte bine regula lui „aici si acum“; de aceea, si testarile pentru infectiile cu potentiala transmitere maternofetala au un continut specific situatiei din fiecare regiune. A recomanda anumite teste „dupa ureche“ si a trimite apoi gravida cu rezultatele la interpretare „la un infectionist“ poate expune la cateva riscuri:

    pune in dificultate infectionistul in a furniza interpretari unor testari inutile sau fara semnificatie pentru situatia actuala a sarcinii

    expune medicul ginecolog riscului de scadere a credibilitatii in fata gravidei daca infectionistul se vede nevoit sa prescrie teste omise in bilantul initial

     Cine deconteaza testarile?

    Nu toata raspunderea in privinta derapajelor acestor testari apartine lipsei de educatie a gravidei in acest domeniu si/sau deficientelor profesionale ale medicului sau curant. De multe ori am intalnit gravide care aveau o lista de teste recomandate si neefectuate; cel mai adesea iti spun – „nu am avut bani ca sa fac aceste analize“.  Daca ne referim doar la testele cu adevarat utile, majoritatea sunt asigurate in mod gratuit pentru toate gravidele din Romania, dar unele nu. De aici se desprind cel putin doua idei:

    - necesitatea de a sustine efectuarea gratuita a tuturor acelor teste cu adevarat necesare, beneficiul medical si cel economic fiind cert;

    - necesitatea limitarii recomandarilor la testarile justificate, fara a incarca lista de analize cu alte teste inutile dar care costa, ceea ce va determina uneori ca gravida sa renunte la efectuarea oricarui test

    With so many medical tests and treatments and so much scientific and medical information – some of it contradictory – how can people make the best medical decisions? Most medical decisions, it turns out, are based on common sense. In this short and easy-to-read book, Dr. Phillip K. Peterson explains the ten rules of internal medicine. Using real case examples he shows how following the rules will help consumers make good decisions about their medical care. "Get Inside Your Doctor's Head" providesadvice about such questions as when to seek treatment, when to get another opinion, and when to let time take its course. Turn to the Ten Rules when you are weighing your doctor's recommendations about diagnostic tests and treatments and use them to communicate more effectively with your doctor. As with all rules, the Ten Rules of Internal Medicine have occasional exceptions – and when evidence suggests that you are an exception, the relevant rule should be broken. Follow the Ten Rules to make decisions in the increasingly complicated medical world when you need guidance about health matters for yourself and your loved ones.

"Living with Itch" offers relief, drawing on the authors' vast knowledge of itch, the suffering it causes, and available treatments. Itch researchers and clinicians Drs. Gil Yosipovitch and Shawn G. Kwatra explain what itch is and the cascade of physiological events that cause us to experience it. They describe the many skin diseases, from atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) to psoriasis, and conditions like chronic kidney disease, lymphoma, HIV, and neuropathies that cause itch. "Living with Itch" provides information on preventing itch as well as topical and systemic therapies, regardless of what's causing the itch. Patient and parent narratives explain how itch affects their lives and how they cope with a symptom that can, with medical and social support, be managed.

    Înainte de a învăța electrocardiogramă trebuie bine înțeles ce așteptăm de la ea; de cele mai multe ori electrocardiograma nu este diagnosticul ci o treaptă spre diagnostic, dar o treaptă ușor de pășit dacă știi să calci. Există evident excepții în ambele sensuri: uneori electrocardiograma este diagnosticul (preexcitația, aritmia etc.), iar alteori nu te ajută cu nimic (de cele mai multe ori dacă încerci să găsești în electrocardiogramă ceea ce nu poate da). Ar fi o eroare să considerați electrocardiograma normală (cel mai dificil traseu pentru studenții la examen) în această categorie; o electrocardiogramă normală spune foarte multe! Și mai rău ar fi dacă, posedând un aparat electrocardiografic cu diagnostic computerizat, v-ați baza pe diagnosticul calculatorului; am consumat în timp mai multă energie corectând diagnosticele calculatorului decât cea consumată pentru analiza “manuala” a traseului.

    Electrocardiograma este o reprezentare grafică a unui fenomen care se descrie vectorial și care pornește de la câteva axiome (datorate marelui Einthoven); majoritatea acestor axiome au fost fizic infirmate sau modificate în timp. Morala acestei constatări este că valoarea electrocardiogramei stă în comparație (fie că ne referim la traseele anterioare ale pacientului, fie ale altor pacienți cu aceeași condiție sau în lipsa lor, cu mai mică valoare, la modelul învățat despre cum trebuie să arate electrocardiograma în condiția dată). Obișnuiesc să recomand studenților mei să abordeze un traseu electrocardiografic în două etape: întâi să privească ca la un tablou și să-și facă o impresie generală, intuitivă, apoi să o uite pentru moment și să reevalueze sistematic traseul (ritmul atrial, conducerea atrioventriculară, depo- larizarea ventriculară, faza de repolarizare etc.) considerând mereu derivațiile sincrone împreună pentru a-și crea o imagine spațială. La cei pe care mi i-am apropiat și au avut răbdare cu mine (și reciproc) lucrurile au funcționat. Iar această metodologie trebuie aplicată indiferent că traseul pare simplu sau dificil. De altfel această terminologie este foarte subiectivă și ține mai mult de interpret decât de traseu. Nu o dată mi s-a cerut să prezint doar trasee „foarte interesante” (citește complicate) și am avut surpriza să constat cât de bine se descurcă unii la probleme delicate și cum se poticnesc la cele simple. Orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare.

    De la premisa că orice traseu electrocardiografic, cât de simplu, poate fi informativ pentru situația pacientului și valoros pentru învățare, ne-am hotărât să prezentăm celor dornici de a-și schimba condiția, trasee din colecția noastră, așa cum se înregistrează ele în viața reală, mai mult sau mai puțin “perfecte”, mai mult sau mai puțin complicate. Intenția noastră este să alcătuim câteva volume separate. Acest prim volum conține un număr de electrocardiograme simple și câteva mai complicate, comentate succint. De la început trebuie să fie clar că această publicație nu se vrea, în nici un caz un manual de învățare de electrocardiograme ci doar o culegere de “exerciții pentru acasă” așa cum, demult, fiecare dintre noi o făcea la matematică.

    There are occasions when a story told from a personal viewpoint can illuminate a profession. Alfred Sommer's epidemiological memoir is such a book. Adventurous, illuminating, and thought provoking, "Ten Lessons in Public Health" is more than the story of one man's work. It tells the tale of how epidemiology grew into global health. The book is organized around ten lessons Sommer learned as his career took him around the world, and within these lessons he explains how the modern era of public health research was born. Three themes emerge from Sommer's story: the duty to help your fellow human beings by traveling to places where there are problems; the knowledge that data-driven research is the key to improving public health; and the need to persevere with sensitivity and strength when science and cultural or sociological forces clash. Nothing in this compelling, sometimes controversial, history is glossed over, as the book's goal is to explain when and why public health efforts triumph or fail. Readers will travel to Bangladesh, Iran, Indonesia, South America, and the Caribbean, where they will learn about spreading epidemics, the aftermath of storms, and vexing epidemiological problems. Sommer reveals the inner politics of world health decisions and how difficult it can be to garner support for new solutions. Triumph, tragedy, frustration, and elation await those who set off on careers in public health, and "Ten Lessons in Public Health" is destined to become a classic book that puts the field into perspective.

    This book traces the genesis, principles and practice of homeopathy, and discusses the reasons for its enduring popularity. Two hundred years ago, medicine had little to offer except blood letting and the administration of violent purgatives – practices which shortened the course of illness by hastening the death of the patient. Largely in reaction to what he correctly saw as the brutality and ineffectiveness of the medicine of his day, the eighteenth century German physician Samuel Hahnemann developed a system of therapeutics that he termed homeopathy. Ironically, while modern medicine has changed beyond recognition, homeopathy, with its roots in alchemy and metaphysics, continues to be practiced precisely as it was in Hahnemann’s day. Readers of this book will enjoy the story of homeopathy and its almost magical attraction, whilst learning much from the authors' rational and scientific discussion of the biological, chemical and psychological questions that this treatment raises.

Each chapter follows a consistent format, opening with typical OSCE scenarios followed by a concise ‘point by point’ examination template. This is then expanded with a detailed description of each aspect of the examination process, including specific instructions around technique and information about key clinical signs to consider. Exam tips are also provided, along with typical questions likely to be asked during an OSCE. Answers are given are at the end of each chapter, making it an invaluable resource for both self-assessment and in peer-to-peer learning.


    Features:

     

    • The book provides a standardised framework for examination of all the major body systems.

    Product description

    Review

     

    "Practicing Psychodynamic Therapy is an excellent complement to Summers and Barber's earlier evidence-based guide, Psychodynamic Therapy. The psychodynamically formulated case studies are fascinating, and beautifully demonstrate the struggles and learning curve of novice therapists, describing in a refreshingly honest way their successful--and less-than-successful--interventions with patients who suffer from obsessionality, depression, trauma, and more. The down-to-earth and clear exposition of both theory and clinical cases makes this an exceptionally valuable book for beginning therapists, as well as undergraduate and graduate students being exposed to psychodynamic concepts and practice for the first time. This volume convincingly dispels any myths about the relevance of psychodynamic therapy for the practice of psychotherapy today."--Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    "This compelling, clearly written book addresses important questions for clinicians starting out in the world of mental health: What is psychodynamic psychotherapy? Why should a well-informed clinician learn it? How does it work? Jargon-free clinical cases--written by clinicians from varied training backgrounds who utilize a wide range of psychodynamic techniques--depict treatment with patients who suffer from panic disorder, major depression, combinations of depression and anxiety, and personality disorders. A 'must read' for clinicians of all orientations, this book will help to solidify psychodynamic therapy and techniques in the contemporary psychotherapeutic landscape."--Barbara Milrod, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

    "Referencing the emerging body of research on the efficaciousness of psychodynamic theory, this volume is organized around 12 cases presented by early-career psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. The diverse cases bring to light the unique relationship between psychotherapist and client and offer an in-depth look at individual approaches taken within a psychodynamic framework. Each of six core psychodynamic problems identified by Summers and Barber is covered in the cases. With its evidence-based focus, carefully selected cases, and emphasis on creating a change-oriented therapeutic alliance, this casebook will be an invaluable resource for mental health professionals for years to come."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

    "This accessible clinical casebook illustrates how patients and therapists can work together to address and resolve the most common core problems encountered in therapeutic practice. Twelve refreshingly candid treatment narratives demonstrate specific techniques for working through these problems at different stages of therapy, offering useful strategies for catalyzing and assessing change. Both novice and experienced clinicians will find much of use in this book."--Diana Diamond, PhD, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City University of New York, and Senior Fellow, Personality Disorders Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

    "Summers and Barber have gathered a series of eloquent and detailed cases that illustrate and enrich the approach elaborated in their earlier book, Psychodynamic Therapy: A Guide to Evidence-Based Practice. In this casebook, contributing authors openly share their clinical experience in a personal and candid fashion, offering a window into the very private relationships that develop between therapists and their patients. Indispensable for students of psychotherapy and their teachers, the book provides a rich opportunity for clinical learning and reflection."--Eve Caligor, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

    "Therapists searching for psychodynamic concepts and techniques that will help them better conceptualize their patients' problems will benefit greatly from this book. The book begins with a summary of the authors' framework and then follows with 12 extensive case studies in which their model is carefully applied, assisting clinicians in identifying and working with each patient's core psychodynamic patterns. This is an outstanding, essential book for all dynamically oriented clinicians."--Walter N. Stone, MD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of Cincinnati School of Medicine

     Description:

    Fully revised, this is an updated new edition of a much-loved book which has built a reputation for pithy, entertaining good sense over the course of six editions. ‘Children are different. Paediatrics is much more than medicine miniaturised.’

    From reviews of the previous edition:

    ‘All in all a very handy book for the student, the resident or other professionals working with children. I had a lot of fun reading it.’

    ‘The book is full of wonderful illustrations, and funny and profound advice with quotations, like the words of Sir Dominic Corrigan (1853): "The trouble with many doctors is not that they do not know enough but that they do not see enough", or the advice to teach thy tongue to say" "I do not know" (Rabbi Moses Maimonides or Rambam, 1135-1204). I have used this book for my final medical year paediatrics exams, the DCH and the MRCP and it has been a great help. It reminds us of the most important and basic things - history and examination, and of course a friendly demeanour.’

    • Short, manageable chapters
    • Clinical examples of examination techniques
    • Very helpful tips and topics section
    • Clinical checklists
    • Simply illustrated
    • Updated throughout
    • New section of ‘questions of fives’ questions

    If you’re like a lot of us, for years you’ve been making resolutions and promises about becoming physically fit. Despite all your good intentions, though, somehow it never quite goes according to plan. But you can break that cycle. In Fit at Last, bestselling business author Ken Blanchard and fitness authority Tim Kearin show how Ken, at age seventy-three, finally was able to make lasting improvements in his health and fitness, including dropping over thirty pounds in a year. In each chapter, Ken shares the very personal story of his ups and downs - involving, among other things, a puppy, a Hawaiian tour bus full of widows, and a fifty-year college reunion - while Tim offers expert advice and wisdom gained from over forty years in the fitness industry. Following through on your efforts to get fit requires leadership - personal leadership. Early on, Ken realized the same concepts he’d been using for years to help people lead organizations also could help him stick to his program. Here, you’ll learn how Ken and Tim applied the Situational Leadership II approach to set SMART goals, diagnose Ken’s progress in each of the six core areas of fitness, and match them with the leadership styles necessary to get Ken to the next level in each area. Certainly there is a wealth of excellent fitness advice here - but ultimately, this is a book about commitment. People don’t fail because they don’t know what to do - they fail because they just don’t do it. Using the tools in this book, you’ll be able to move from simply being interested in fitness to making a lasting commitment - one that will add a spring to your step, a smile to your face, and years to your life.

    Almost daily we hear news stories, advertisements, and scientific reports that promise genetic medicine will make us live longer, enable doctors to identify and treat diseases before they start, and individualize our medical care. But surprisingly, a century ago eugenicists were making the same promises. The "Science of Human Perfection" traces the history of the promises of medical genetics and of the medical dimension of eugenics. The book also considers social and ethical issues that cast troublesome shadows over these fields. Keeping his focus on America, science historian Nathaniel Comfort introduces the community of scientists, physicians, and public health workers who have contributed to the development of medical genetics from the nineteenth century to today. He argues that medical genetics is closely related to eugenics, and indeed the two cannot be fully understood separately. He also carefully examines how the desire to relieve suffering and to improve ourselves genetically, though noble, may be subverted. History makes clear that as patients and consumers we must take ownership of genetic medicine, using it intelligently, knowledgeably, and sceptically, lest pernicious interests trump our own.

  • Homeopathy Reconsidered: What Really Helps Patients

    Description:

     

    Homeopathy is over 200 years old and is still experiencing an uninterrupted influx of new practitioners and patients. Many patients and therapists swear by this "alternative healing method", which in some countries is even financed by health insurances. This seems completely incomprehensible to critics: For them it is clearly evident that homeopathy is hopelessly unscientific and has at best a placebo effect.   The positions of supporters and opponents seem to be just as immutable as they are incompatible. This book answers some essential and fascinating questions: What remains of the founding ideas of homeopathy in 21st century medicine? Does it really work and, if so, how? Which of the original theories can we still apply today with a clear conscience and use for the benefit of patients and the healthcare system? Where does homeopathy have its limits and does it indeed need to be critically reconsidered and evaluated?   The author has dealt with the points of criticism for years, but at the same time also takes seriously the wishes and concerns of patients who often feel insufficiently cared for by conventional medical practice. Against the background of her own personal history, her book attempts to bridge the gap between these two traditionally opposing camps.

     

    Table of Contents:

     

    1. How and On What Basis Does Homeopathy Treat?

    2. Homeopathy - What Are We Talking About?

    The book is a narrative of the unfolding of the Ebola virus disease outbreak from a scientific view point. The author provides an analysis of the scientific basis of public health policies that have influenced the public's, and the medical community's, abilities to understand the virus and the disease. This is done in the context of providing insights into the biology of the virus, and exploring open questions, including its likely modes of transmission. The author has included citations from the scientific literature and the press, as well as quotes from expert interviews. The book will help sort out the fact from fiction, given the confusion that arose after the virus arrived in the US. The author used his objective research skills and knowledge of evolutionary genetics and molecular biology to find out what was known, and what questions remained unanswered, and even what questions remained unasked.Written in an accessible style, it is intended for the educated general public, scientists, policy makers, health care workers, and politicians. It delves into the problems of trying to derive a logic-based understanding of a highly lethal emerging disease in 2014, when research funding cuts have gutted research institutions, and when public health institutions really were woefully unprepared. It is a highly distinct narrative analysis that is sure to stimulate new research and thinking in public policy. It will inform thousands of people of the nature of the virus, how it works, in terms they are likely to be able to understand. It will allow others to rapidly catch up with the story of Ebola.

    In "The Story Within", authors share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders. Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases: whether to be tested, who to tell, whether to have children, and whether and how to treat children medically, if treatment is available. More broadly, they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves, the world, and our actions within it. People affected by genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways. These writers reflect that breadth of response, yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what "health" is or whose life has value. They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity – to deepen debate and generate questions. Whether they or their families are affected by Huntington's disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, genetic deafness or blindness, schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, fragile X, or Fanconi anemia, their stories remind us that genetic health is complicated, dynamic, and above all, deeply personal.

    Monografia "Repercusiuni miocardice si coronariene in boli cronice " constituie o sinteza de peste 50 de ani desfasurata de prof. Dr. Nicolae Balta, membru al Academiei de Stiinte Medicale, distins cercetator din cadrul fostului Institut de Fiziologie Normala si Patologica "Daniel Danielopolu" al Academiei Romane.

     Lucrarea este o edificatoare sursa de documentare din domenul implicarii bolii cronice in patologia miocardo-coronariana, concept ce are la baza interdependenta in conditii fiziologice si patologiceale ale  functiilor miocardice si dinamica circulatiei coronare, componente ale aparatului cardiovascular care nu pot functiona bine decat impreuna. Este conceptul miocardo-coronarian cu valoare euristica ce poate contribui la estimarea si evaluarea unor aspecte importante intr-un domeniu de importanta covarsitoare in privinta cunoasterii si aprofundarii cadrului nosologic si a interrelatiilor morfofunctionale miocardice si coronariene in bolile cronice.

     Conceptul miocardo-coronarian reflecta just realitatea in domeniul enuntat conferind medicului capacitatea unei atitudini de ansamblu comprehensiv in aprofundarea si evaluarea diagnosticului de studiu evolutiv, a conditiei terapeutice si precizarea prognosticului bolilor cronice, domeniu de mare insemnatate al medicinii interne contemporane, care preocupa si alerteaza lumea medicala mondiala, socio-economica si politica. Conceptul miocardo-coronarian mai este relevant si ilustrativ pentru analiza medicinii omului sanatos, activ, educat si demn in desfasurarea activitatii sale.

     Prezentarea celor 14 capitole este realizata in baza unei metodologii elaborate conform conceptului miocardo-coronarian, care, reprezinta metode de studiu si de cercetare a mecanismelor de producere a fenomenelor patologice miocardice si coronariene in cursul evolutiei bolilor cronice. Acaeasta modalitate de prezentare confera lucrarii un caracter unitar al legaturilor dintre patologia miocardo-coronariana si bolile cronice care au incidenta de crestere rapida in acest secol.

    The surgeon and anatomist John Hunter (1728–93) left a famous legacy in the Hunterian Museum of medical specimens now in the Royal College of Surgeons, and in this collection of his writings, edited by James Palmer, with a biography by Drewry Ottley, published between 1835 and 1837. The first four volumes are of text, and the larger Volume 5 contains plates. Hunter had begun his career as a demonstrator in the anatomy classes of his brother William, before qualifying as a surgeon. He regarded surgery as evidence of failure - the mutilation of a patient who could not be cured by other means - and his studies of anatomy and natural history were driven by his belief that it was necessary to understand the normal physiological processes before attempting to cure the abnormal ones. Volume 5 contains the plates which accompany the works in the other volumes, along with notes.

    This book represents a new and hopeful paradigm for treatment of diseases that are spreading globally as countries adopt Western lifestyles and standards of living. It describes the phenomenal science and clinical efficacy of the work of Dr Xiu-Min Li across a broad array of immune and inflammatory diseases. These include food allergies, asthma, eczema, "new" diseases such as mast cell disorders, obesity, and mental health problems that are part of a worldwide "epidemic of progress". The most allergic people are caught in a cycle of medication, steroid dependency, emergency hospitalization, and curtailing their activities and diets to avoid triggers. Children are "losing their childhoods." They are fighting a battle against diet, climate change, and environmental degradation. Dr Li offers them hope by healing the entire immune system, not just address symptoms. In her practice Dr Li treats complex combinations of allergic diseases for all ages, from infancy through adulthood, bringing relief to people who have suffered terribly from oozing, bleeding skin, desperate breathing disorders, and life-threatening food allergies. She uses her vast knowledge of biochemistry to improve on the traditional decoctions to create refined versions suitable for modern tastes and lifestyles. In contrast with Western pharmaceuticals, which are the study of "one molecule's effects on one other molecule" Dr Li's work shows the effects of multiple molecules on multiple other molecules. Increasing numbers of scientists are beginning to see the possibilities for their own research, with the prospects for more collaborations with prestigious institutions around the world.

    The most famous nineteenth-century British reformer of care for the mentally ill and disabled was undoubtedly John Conolly, whose 1856 Treatment of the Insane without Mechanical Restraints is also reissued in this series. However, Conolly's work at the Hanwell Asylum near London was based in part on the pioneering efforts of Edward Parker Charlesworth (1781–1853) and his younger colleague Robert Gardiner Hill (1811–78), who had already (and controversially) abolished physical restraint in the Lincoln Asylum by 1838. Conolly is known to have visited and been impressed by the Lincoln hospital, but his supporters, and his own book, suggested his primacy in the field, and Hill published this work in 1857 in order to refute Conolly's claims. The first part consists of Hill's account of his and Charlesworth's reforms at Lincoln, and the second reprints many of the letters and pamphlets which focused on the topic during this period.

    Summary

    Respiratory problems are the commonest cause of acute admission to hospital. A variety of diagnostic investigations are required, both for acute and clinic assessment. Making Sense of Lung Function Tests, Second Edition familiarises both trainees and more experienced clinicians with the interpretation of a range of respiratory parameters. It places lung function in a clinical context using real-life examples and provides invaluable hands-on guidance.

    For this second edition Consultant Respiratory Physician Jonathan Dakin and Consultant Anaesthetist Elena Kourteli are joined by Mark Mottershaw, Chief Respiratory Physiologist from Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, all contributing a broad range of expertise and perspectives. Together they have updated the book throughout and added new chapters including an algorithm for interpretation of pulmonary function tests, exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

    The text offers a clear explanation of the concepts which students find difficult, including:

       

    • The basis of obstructive and restrictive defects
    •  

    • Pattern recognition of the flow volume loop
    •  

    • Differences between TLCO and KCO
    •  

    • Assessment of oxygenation using PO2 and SO2
    •  

    • The basis of Type 1 and type 2 respiratory failure
    •  

    • Distinguishing respiratory and metabolic acidosis
    •  

    • The relationship between sleep and respiratory failure

    The information is presented in an accessible way, suitable for any who seek only a grounding in spirometry or blood gases, but also sufficiently comprehensive for those completing specialist training in general or respiratory medicine.

    Review

     

    "One of the most important treatment developments in recent years has been the theoretical and empirical elaboration of mindfulness and acceptance into evidence-based cognitive-behavioral protocols. Books on this topic, however, have typically focused either on general theory or on clinical applications to narrow segments of psychopathology. Now Hayes, Follette, and Linehan--three of the most creative thinkers in this area--have produced a volume surveying the current status of these new intervention strategies across the wide spectrum of psychopathology. Anyone seeking to remain up to date on the applications of these exciting new procedures with a variety of client problems will want to have this book close at hand."--David H. Barlow, PhD, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders and Department of Psychology, Boston University

    "Some of today's most innovative scientist-practitioners provide an in-depth examination of the many ways that the concepts of mindfulness and acceptance are being integrated into cognitive-behavioral therapy, which hitherto has had little systematic contact with experiential therapies and Eastern philosophies. This book will be of interest to all mental health professionals concerned with enhancing therapeutic change in their patients and with furthering their own personal development. Provocative and at times very wise, this is 'must' reading for researchers and clinicians alike, inviting critical consideration of new and promising ideas and procedures. It is an appropriate text for graduate-level courses in psychotherapy, particularly within clinical psychology programs, and would serve as an excellent basis for a special-topic seminar on mindfulness and acceptance therapies."--Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California

    Review

     

    "This is a highly practical guide for using cognitive therapy with patients who present challenging problems to clinicians with diverse levels of experience. An excellent hands-on text for graduate-level courses and for novice therapists, it can also fruitfully guide mature practitioners who wish to expand their realm of expertise. Enriched with numerous illuminating case materials, the book will enlighten even the most experienced mental health worker."--Theodore Millon, PhD, DSc, Institute for Advanced Studies in Personology and Psychopathology

    "Clinicians have been reporting for some time now that they are seeing increasingly difficult cases in their consulting rooms. Axis I and Axis II comorbidities have become the rule rather than the exception. By systematically addressing these challenges in this clearly written and eminently readable volume, Judith Beck takes cognitive therapy to a new level. This book will be equally useful to students and to experienced therapists."--Glen O. Gabbard, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine

    "This excellent book focuses on the art of cognitive therapy. When therapy does not seem to be going well, most clinicians can think of another therapist who they think would fare better. This book teaches you how to become that therapist. Drawing on her vast experience with therapists and clients, Dr. Beck beautifully outlines how to identify and overcome many of the difficulties that can arise in cognitive therapy. As a consequence, therapists will be heartened and more patients will experience the benefits they hope for. Highly recommended reading for novice to highly experienced cognitive therapists."--David M. Clark, DPhil, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

  • Evolution of Obesity.

    In this sweeping exploration of the relatively recent obesity epidemic, Michael L. Power and Jay Schulkin probe evolutionary biology, history, physiology, and medical science to uncover the causes of our growing girth. The unexpected answer? Our own evolutionary success. For most of the past few million years, our evolutionary ancestors' survival depended on being able to consume as much as possible when food was available and to store the excess energy for periods when it was scarce. In the developed world today, high-calorie foods are readily obtainable, yet the propensity to store fat is part of our species' heritage, leaving an increasing number of the world's people vulnerable to obesity. In an environment of abundant food, we are anatomically, physiologically, metabolically, and behaviorally programmed in a way that makes it difficult for us to avoid gaining weight. Power and Schulkin's engagingly argued book draws on popular examples and sound science to explain our expanding waistlines and to discuss the consequences of being overweight for different demographic groups. They review the various studies of human and animal fat use and storage, including those that examine fat deposition and metabolism in men and women; chronicle cultural differences in food procurement, preparation, and consumption; and consider the influence of sedentary occupations and lifestyles. A compelling and comprehensive examination of the causes and consequences of the obesity epidemic, "The Evolution of Obesity" offers fascinating insights into the question, Why are we getting fatter?

    After training to be a doctor at the London School of Medicine for Women, Flora Murray (1869–1923) became an active member of the Women's Social and Political Union. At the outbreak of the First World War, she and her fellow suffragists laid down their banners and sought to aid the Allied war effort. Working within the newly formed Women's Hospital Corps, Murray and her colleague Louisa Garrett Anderson (1873–1943) overcame initial prejudice and established two military hospitals in France in the period 1914–15. Their success prompted an invitation from the War Office to open the Endell Street Military Hospital in London, staffed entirely by women. First published in 1920, Murray's account, illustrated with numerous photographs, records important steps in furthering the acceptance of women in the medical profession. For female doctors, surgeons and nurses, the war provided not only the 'occasion for service' but also 'great professional opportunities'.
