The masters athlete: understanding the role of sport and exercise in optimizing aging

 Sports Medicine  Comments Off on The masters athlete: understanding the role of sport and exercise in optimizing aging
Jun 262019
 

Masters athletes are those that continue to train and compete, typically at a high level, beyond the age of thirty-five and into middle and old age. As populations in the industrialized world get older and governments become increasingly keen to promote healthy aging and non-pharmacological interventions, the study of masters athletes enables us to better understand the benefits of, and motivations for, life-long involvement in physical activity. This is the first book to draw together current research on masters athletes. The Masters Athlete examines the evidence that cognitive skills, motor skills and physiological capabilities can be maintained at a high level with advancing age, and that age related decline is slowed in athletes that continue to train and compete in their later years. Including contributions from leading international experts in physiology, motor behaviour, psychology, gerontology and medicine, the book explores key issues such as: motivation for involvement in sport and physical activity across the lifespan evidence of lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes the maintenance of performance with age. Challenging conventional views of old age, and with important implications for policy and future research, this book is essential reading for students and practitioners working in sport and exercise science, aging and public health, human development, and related disciplines.

Journey from Cognition to Brain to Gene: Perspectives from Williams Syndrome

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Journey from Cognition to Brain to Gene: Perspectives from Williams Syndrome
Jun 262019
 

A blueprint for the investigation of neurodevelopmental disorders, this book presents the work of a team of scientists using a multidisciplinary, integrated approach to link genes with human behavior. Using Williams syndrome as a model, leading researchers in neuroanatomy, neurocognition, neurophysiology, and molecular genetics have built bridges between disciplines to link higher cognitive functions, their underlying neurobiological bases, and their molecular genetic underpinnings. One of the book’s many strengths is that the scientists from each discipline studied the same individuals with Williams syndrome. As the book shows, Williams syndrome is a fascinating disorder because of the “peaks and valleys” among cognitive domains: severe intellectual deficits but remarkably spared and effusive language; specific impairment in spatial construction but great strength in face processing and sociability. By capitalizing on these dissociations in higher cognitive functioning, the book provides a model for the study of brain-behavior relationships as well as for the mapping of brain and behavior phenotypes to the genome and beyond.Contributors Ralph Adolphs, Twyla Alvarez, Lawrence Appelbaum, Ursula Bellugi, Dennis Burian, Xiao-Ning Chen, Michael Chiles, Stephan Eliez, Albert Galaburda, Hanao Hirota, Wendy Jones, Julie Korenberg, Zona Lai, Liz Lichtenberger, Alan Lincoln, Rumiko Matsuoka, Debra Mills, Helen Neville, Judy Reilly, Allan Reiss, Bruce Roe, Marie St. George, J.

The Junior Doctor’s Guide to Cardiology (Junior Doctor’s Guides)

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on The Junior Doctor’s Guide to Cardiology (Junior Doctor’s Guides)
Jun 252019
 

‘The transition between medical student and junior doctor is both stressful and demanding. The learning curve is extremely steep, and even more so in the world of specialist medicine – Senior doctors expect a lot of their juniors and, as a result, people often feel out of their depth and may feel too embarrassed to tell their seniors when they don’t understand something – ‘ – from the Preface Boost your confidence. This is a user-friendly manual for the junior doctor. Concise and easy to read, it is invaluable for day-to-day clinical cardiology while out on the wards. It provides a logical, stepwise guide through the more common problems encountered in cardiology and assists with clinical practice and decision making. Complications, prognoses and comprehensive explanations of investigations aid in understanding why certain tests are requested and how to interpret their results. The Junior Doctor’s Guide to Cardiology helps you to make informed, confident decisions and gives you the assurance to optimise your time in cardiology. When I first entered medical school, a very wise senior tutor said to me, ‘Collins, learn the basics and you won’t go far wrong!’ The problem is in defining the basics and how to identify them. I am sure this book will help you and hopefully entice you into the wonderful and expanding world of cardiology – good luck and don’t forget ‘learn the basics!’ From the foreword by Peter Collins

Hospitals and Health Systems: What They Are and How They Work

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Hospitals and Health Systems: What They Are and How They Work
Jun 252019
 

by Charles R. McConnell (Author)

Hospitals and Health Systems: What They Are and How They Work takes a practical approach to explaining the history, development, and structure of modern health care institutions. Early chapters discuss the history of the hospital, Medicare and Medicaid, health insurance, as well as managed care and reimbursement to set the context for the modern hospital and health system network. The text moves on to explain how hospital mergers, reaction to cost escalation, and government and religious affiliations have led to the emergence of health systems, of which hospitals are an important part. Finally, it delves into operating today’s modern hospital, including care structure and organization, direct patient care, staffing, physical facility, business activities (billing, accounting, health information management, electronic health records, etc.), and unions.

Written for undergraduate courses in Hospital and/or Health Systems Administration, this short text can be easily used alongside a Health Management text or by anyone looking to understand how today’s hospitals and health care system evolved and now operates.

Key Features:
• Contributions by experts from both professional practice and academia provide fresh insights and different perspectives
• Each chapter offers key terms, learning objectives, and chapter summaries to enhance learning
• End-of-chapter review and discussion questions encourage critical thinking
