Essentials Of Biostatistics In Public Health (Essential Public Health)

By (author): Lisa M. Sullivan

Essentials of Biostatistics in Public Health, Third Edition provides a fundamental and engaging background for students learning to apply and appropriately interpret biostatistics applications in the field of public health. Many examples are drawn directly from the author’s remarkable clinical experiences with the renowned Framingham Heart Study, making this text practical, interesting, and accessible for those with little mathematical background. The examples are real, relevant, and manageable in size so that students can easily focus on applications rather than become overwhelmed by computations. The Third Edition offers a new chapter on data visualization and interpretation including guidance on reporting statistical results in tables, figures and text. Examples of well-organized, detailed and appropriately formatted tables and figures are provided along with samples of how best to interpret them. Examples of poorly organized tables and figures are also included to illustrate common misinterpretations of results, due in part to lack of clarity in presentation. The text comes packaged with an access code card that gives your students access to an online workbook for statistical computing using Microsoft Excel. The online workbook is available in both Mac and PC versions. Updates to the Third Edition: • New chapter on data visualization and interpretation • New “When and Why” sections in each chapter include timely examples of important medical and public health applications of biostatistical techniques to help students connect the technical aspects of how specific analyses are conducted to real and relevant applications. New suggestions for instructors to facilitate in-class discussions around these applications and their interpretation are included in the instructor resources • New examples from widely publicized clinical trials and from relevant and timely studies added throughout. • New integrative exercises included in the instructor resources that allow students to practice biostatistical analysis with real data using Excel. • New link to a publicly available, longitudinal dataset containing data collected in the Framingham Heart Study

Adhesion in Pharmaceutical, Biomedical, and Dental Fields (Adhesion and Adhesives: Fundamental and Applied Aspects)

By (author): K. L. Mittal, F.M Etzler

The phenomenon of adhesion is of cardinal importance in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and dental fields. A few eclectic examples will suffice  to underscore the importance/relevance of adhesion in these three areas. For example, the adhesion between powdered solids is of crucial importance in tablet manufacture. The interaction between biodevices (e.g., stents, bio-implants) and body environment dictates the performance of such devices, and there is burgeoning research activity in modifying the surfaces of such implements to render them compatible with bodily components. In the field of dentistry, the modern trend is to shift from retaining of restorative materials by mechanical interlocking to adhesive bonding.

This unique book addresses all these three areas in an easily accessible single source. The book contains 15 chapters written by leading experts and is divided into four parts: General Topics; Adhesion in Pharmaceutical Field; Adhesion in Biomedical Field; and Adhesion in Dental Field. The topics covered include:

– Theories or mechanisms of adhesion.
– Wettability of powders.
– Role of surface free energy in tablet strength and powder flow behavior.
– Mucoadhesive polymers for drug delivery systems.
– Transdermal patches.
– Skin adhesion in long-wear cosmetics. 
– Factors affecting microbial adhesion. 
– Biofouling and ways to mitigate it. 
– Adhesion of coatings on surgical tools and bio-implants. 
– Adhesion in fabrication of microarrays in clinical diagnostics. 
– Antibacterial polymers for dental adhesives and composites. 
– Evolution of dental adhesives. 
– Testing of dental adhesives joints.

Atlas of Head and Neck Robotic Surgery

This atlas offers precise, step-by-step descriptions of robotic surgical techniques in the fields of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery, with the aim of providing surgeons with a comprehensive guide. The coverage encompasses all current indications and the full range of robotic surgical approaches, including transoral, transaxillary, transmaxillary, and transcervical. Key clinical and technical issues and important aspects of surgical anatomy are highlighted, and advice is provided on ancillary topics such as postoperative care and robotic reconstructive surgery.

Robotic surgery has proved a significant addition to the armamentarium of tools in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery. It is now used in many centers as the workhorse for resection of oropharyngeal and laryngeal tumors, thyroid surgery, and base of tongue resection in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. The da Vinci robotic system, with its three-dimensional vision system, is also excellent for parapharyngeal, nasopharyngeal, and skull base resections. This superbly illustrated book, with accompanying online videos, will be ideal for residents in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery and skull base surgery who are working in a robotic cadaver lab and for specialists seeking to further improve their dissection techniques.
