Paediatric Oncology, Third edition

 Oncology, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Paediatric Oncology, Third edition
Jan 182020
 

This comprehensive and established textbook presents an up-to-date overview of all aspects of managing children with cancer and in its third edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect recent developments in the field. Individual malignancies are given comprehensive coverage, including details of clinical presentation, diagnostic investigations, novel imaging techniques and current management with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.
Current controversies relating to diagnosis and management – a popular feature of previous editions – are presented in boxes for increased emphasis. Content changes to the new edition include a restructured pathology section and new chapters under separate headings of ‘advances in therapy’ and ‘late effects and supportive care’.
Retaining a European flavour, but incorporating information from American and other national studies to give an objective and comprehensive overview, the third edition of Paediatric Oncology remains invaluable reading for trainee and practising paediatric oncologists, and nurse specialists, world-wide.
[contributors mainly UK and European, plus 1 from US and 1 from Australia]

Twelve-Lead Electrocardiography: Theory and Interpretation

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Twelve-Lead Electrocardiography: Theory and Interpretation
Jan 182020
 

This is a fully revised and updated edition of the major work that teaches health professionals to utilize the 12-lead ECG in daily clinical practice. It deals with the analysis of the morphology of ECG waveforms in order to diagnose many conditions not related to rhythm, including ischemia, acute myocardial infarction, and hypertrophy of the heart muscle. Almost all other texts of morphologic interpretation for non-cardiologists rely heavily on memorizing electrocardiographic patterns. This book is unique due to its different technique, leading the reader through easily understood electrophysiologic principles, and then allowing the reader to deduce what the 12 lead electrocardiogram will look like under various circumstances.

Handbook of Adolescent Health Psychology

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Handbook of Adolescent Health Psychology
Jan 182020
 

Adolescence is a pivotal period of development with respect to health and illness. It is during adolescence that many positive health behaviors are consolidated and important health risk behaviors are first evident; thus, adolescence is a logical time period for primary prevention. In addition, the predominant causes of morbidity and mortality in adolescence are quite different from those of adults, indicating that early identification and treatment of adolescent health problems must be directed to a unique set of targets in this age group. Moreover, because of the particular developmental issues that characterize adolescence, intervention efforts designed for adults are often inappropriate or ineffective in an adolescent population. Even when chronic illnesses are congenital or begin in childhood, the manner in which the transition from childhood to adolescence to young adulthood is negotiated has important implications for disease outcomes throughout the remainder of the person’s life span.
Organized in five major sections (General Issues, Developmental Issues, Treatment and Training, Mental Health, and Physical Health) and 44 chapters, Handbook of Adolescent Health Psychology addresses the common and not so common health issues that tend to affect adolescents. Coverage includes:
▪ Context and perspectives in adolescent health psychology
▪ Health literacy, health maintenance, and disease prevention in adolescence
▪ Physical disorders such as asthma, obesity, physical injury, and chronic pain
▪ Psychological disorders such as substance abuse, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, and eating disorders
▪ Congenital chronic diseases such as type 1 diabetes and spina bifida
Handbook of Adolescent Health Psychology is the definitive reference for pediatricians, family physicians, health psychologists, clinical social workers, rehabilitation specialists, and all practitioners and researchers working with adolescents.

The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet: How to Beat Diabetes Fast (and Stay Off Medication)

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet: How to Beat Diabetes Fast (and Stay Off Medication)
Jan 182020
 

A groundbreaking guide to defeating diabetes without drugs—including a step-by-step diet plan, recipes, and the science behind why the program works—from #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Michael Mosley whose life-changing FastDiet series brought on “a health revolution” (New York Times).

The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet is a radical new approach to the biggest health epidemic threatening us today…

Our modern diet, high in low-quality carbohydrates, is damaging our bodies—producing a constant overload of sugar in our bloodstream that clogs up our arteries and piles hidden fat into our internal organs. The result has been a doubling in the number of type 2 diabetics, as well as a surge in those with a potentially hazardous condition—prediabetes. It is now known that even moderately elevated blood sugar levels can trigger heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer.

Scientists have recently demonstrated that you can prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes with a simple change in diet and lifestyle.

Drawing on the work of Professor Roy Taylor—one of the UK’s foremost diabetes experts—and his own experience as a one-time diabetic, Dr. Michael Mosley presents a groundbreaking, science-based, 8-week plan for diabetics who want to reverse their condition (and then stay off medication). He also offers a more flexible regime for people interested in the extensive health benefits to be gained from lowering their blood sugar levels and shedding dangerous fat.

As Dr. Mosley says, it is never too late to act…

The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer

 Immunology, Oncology  Comments Off on The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer
Jan 182020
 

For thousands of years, physicians observed cases of “spontaneous remissions” from cancer. These sudden and dramatic cancer cures were chalked up to magic or miracle. In fact it was the immune system, mysteriously unleashed.
Now scientists have learned to recreate that miracle with medicines so new that cancer patients- and even many doctors- don’t realize they exist.
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Nurse comes an empowering and accessible story of the discoveries of the tricks cancer uses to avoid the immune system, and the important new cancer immunotherapies already unleashing the immune system to fight – and beat – the disease.
Four years in the writing, THE BREAKTHROUGH is an “exciting read” about the discoveries which received the 2018 Nobel Prize winning discoveries in October, and a dramatic and exciting turning point in our relationship with a disease that has for too long defined us.
For decades, scientists have puzzled over one of medicine’s most confounding mysteries: Why doesn’t our immune system recognize and fight cancer the way it does other diseases, like the common cold?
As it turns out, the answer to that question can be traced to a series of tricks that cancer has developed to turn off normal immune responses-tricks that scientists have only recently discovered and learned to defeat. The result is what many are calling cancer’s “penicillin moment,” a revolutionary discovery in our understanding of cancer and how to beat it.
In THE BREAKTHROUGH, Graeber guides us through the surprisingly recent scientific discoveries that change the way we will treat- and maybe even beat- cancer in the years to come.
Amazingly, many patients, and even many doctors, are not fully aware of what many are calling our “penicillin moment” with cancer. With literally thousands of new therapies that harness the power of the immune system to recognize and fight cancer in clinical trials, it’s never been more important for patients to understand their choices, and empowered to ask better questions. In the new war against cancer, information is now a crucial weapon.
Groundbreaking, riveting, and expertly told, THE BREAKTHROUGH is a scientific mystery story about the quest to unleash our natural ability to recognize and defeat cancer, told through the experiences of the patients, physicians, and cancer immunotherapy researchers who are on the front lines. This is the incredible true story of the race to find a cure, a dispatch from the life-changing world of modern oncological science, and a brave new chapter in medical history.
