Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies: A Clinician’s Guide

This fascinating book, Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies, edited by Dr. Glenn Matfin, MSC (Oxon), MB ChB, FACE, FACP, FRCP, draws its subject matter from nearly 100 noted endocrinologists worldwide. The book advises clinicians and other health professionals on treating acute medical and critically ill patients who experience endocrine and metabolic emergencies, such as dangerously low blood sugar or excessive thyroid hormone levels. As hormone health conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, and thyroid disorders become more commonplace, hospitals are seeing more patients who need emergency assessment and treatment for related complications. “A given patient entering the emergency room or ICU may have a complex constellation of health problems, including endocrine conditions,” said Matfin, a consultant physician in the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS). “Clinicians need practical resources to ensure their patients receive the best possible care, and that is what this book delivers.” Dr. Matfin was previously medical director of the International Diabetes Center and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis. Prior to this, he was a senior physician and director of the Inpatient Hyperglycemia Program at the Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School, in Boston. Edited by an internationally recognized expert in the field, Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies is an invaluable text and reference packed with practical advice for clinicians, practitioners, students, and other health care professionals working with complex inpatients and endocrine abnormalities, and it features new insights on the diagnosis and treatment of acute endocrine emergencies.

Molecular Genetics and the Human Personality 1st Edition

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, personality and mental illness were conceptualized in an intertwined psychodynamic model. Biological psychiatry for many un-weaved that model and took mental illness for psychiatry and left personality to psychology. This book brings personality back into biological psychiatry, not merely in the form of personality disorder but as part of a new intertwined molecular genetic model of personality and mental disorder. This is the beginning of a new conceptual paradigm!!

This breakthrough volume marks the beginning of a new era, an era made possible by the electrifying pace of discovery and innovation in the field of molecular genetics. In fact, several types of genome maps have already been completed, and today’s experts confidently predict that we will have a smooth version of the sequencing of the human genome–which contains some 3 billion base pairs

Such astounding progress helped fuel the development of this remarkable volume, the first ever to discuss the brand-new–and often controversial–field of molecular genetics and the human personality. Questioning, critical, and strong on methodological principles, this volume reflects the point of view of its 35 distinguished contributors–all pioneers in this burgeoning field and themselves world-class theoreticians, empiricists, clinicians, developmentalists, and statisticians.

For students of psychopathology and others bold enough to hold in abeyance their understandable misgivings about the conjunction of “molecular genetics” and “human personality,” this work offers an authoritative and up-to-date introduction to the molecular genetics of human personality. The book, with its wealth of facts, conjectures, hopes, and misgivings, begins with a preface by world-renowned researcher and author Irving Gottesman. – The authors masterfully guide us through Chapter 1, principles and methods; Chapter 4, animal models for personality; and Chapter 11, human intelligence as a model for personality, laying the groundwork for our appreciation of the remaining empirical findings of human personality qua personality.- Many chapters (6, 7, 9, 11, and 13) emphasize the neurodevelopmental and ontogenetic aspects of personality, with a major emphasis on the receptors and transporters for the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. Though these neurotransmitters are a rational starting point now, the future undoubtedly will bring many other candidate genes that today cannot even be imagined, given our ignorance of the genes involved in the prenatal development of the central nervous system. – Chapter 3 provides an integrative overview of the broad autism phenotype, and as such will be of special interest to child psychiatrists. Chapters 5, 8, and 10 offer enlightening information on drug and alcohol abuse. Chapter 14 discusses variations in sexuality.- Adding balance and mature perspectives on how all the chapters complement and sometimes challenge one another are Chapter 2, written by a major figure in the renaissance of the relevance to psychopathology of both genetics and personality; Chapters 15-17, informed critical appraisals citing concerns and cautions about premature applications of this information in the policy arena; and Chapter 18, a judicious contemplation by the editors themselves of this promising–and, to some, alarming–field.

Clear and meticulously researched, this eminently satisfying work is written to introduce the subject to postgraduate students just beginning to develop their research skills, to interested psychiatric practitioners, and to informed laypersons with some scientific background.

Reducing the Stigma of Mental Illness: A Report from a Global Association

The stigma attached to mental illness is the main obstacle to better mental health care and a better quality of life for patients, their families and the community as a whole. In 1996, the WPA began an international programme to fight the stigma and discrimination because of schizophrenia. The ‘Open the Doors’ program has since been implemented in more than 20 countries and involved roughly 200 different anti-stigma interventions. This book details the results of these efforts internationally and provides recommendations and guidance for those seeking to join this international effort or start similar efforts to dispel stigma and discrimination.

Antipsychotics and their Side Effects (Cambridge Medicine (Paperback)) Illustrated Edition

With the remarkable expansion in the use of antipsychotics, concerns about their immediate, intermediate, and long-term adverse effects have intensified. Despite this, studies consistently show that monitoring of patients taking antipsychotics can be inadequate, haphazard, or worse. This book provides a comprehensive review of the adverse effects of this pharmacologically complex therapeutic class, covering all commonly used conventional and atypical agents. In the first section, each chapter provides background information about an adverse effect, reviews the evidence linking the effect to various antipsychotics, and provides specific detection and monitoring recommendations. The second section provides unique monitoring guides for each antipsychotic. The third section provides the clinician with a program to monitor patients over the long-term. By supporting rational treatment decisions and systematic adverse effect monitoring, Antipsychotics and their Side Effects provides the clinician with the necessary information and tools for optimizing the safe and effective long-term use of antipsychotic drugs.

The Mark of Shame: Stigma of Mental Illness and an Agenda for Change 1st Edition

Millions of people and their families are affected by mental illness; it causes untold pain and severely impairs their ability to function in the world. In recent years, we have begun to understand and develop a range of effective treatments for mental illness. Even with this shift from
moralistic views to those emphasizing the biological and genetic origins of mental illness, punitive treatment and outright rejection remain strong. Public attitudes toward mental illness are still more negative than they were half a century ago, and the majority of those afflicted either do not
receive or cannot afford adequate care. As a result of all of these troubling facts, applying the term “stigma” to mental illness is particularly appropriate because stigma conveys the mark of shame borne by those in any highly devalued group.

Mental illness tops the list of stigmatized conditions in current society, generating the kinds of stereotypes, fear, and rejection that are reminiscent of longstanding attitudes toward leprosy. Mental disorders threaten stability and order, and media coverage exacerbates this situation by equating
mental illness with violence. As a result, stigma is rampant, spurring family silence, discriminatory laws, and social isolation. The pain of mental illness is searing enough, but adding the layer of stigma affects personal well being, economic productivity, and public health, fueling a vicious
cycle of lowered expectations, deep shame, and hopelessness.

In this groundbreaking book, Stephen Hinshaw examines the longstanding tendency to stigmatize those with mental illness. He also provides practical strategies for overcoming this serious problem, including enlightened social policies that encourage, rather than discourage, contact with those
afflicted, media coverage emphasizing their underlying humanity, family education, and responsive treatment.

The Mark of Shame is a deeply inspiring and passionate work that is realistic and filled with hope. It combines personal accounts with information from social and evolutionary psychology, sociology, and public policy to provide messages that are essential for anyone afflicted or familiar with mental
illness.
