Extraintestinal Manifestations of Coeliac Disease

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Extraintestinal Manifestations of Coeliac Disease
May 192019
 

Coeliac Disease (CD) affects at least 1% of the population. “Classical” CD refers to gastrointestinal presentations with anaemia and gastrointestinal symptoms. CD can, however, present with extraintestinal manifestations, the commonest of which are dermatitis herpetiformis and neurological presentations (e.g., ataxia, neuropathy, encephalopathy). Recognition and research into the pathophysiology of such manifestations is likely to enhance our understanding of this complex autoimmune disorder.

Pre-Screening Systems for Early Disease Prediction, Detection, and Prevention

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Pre-Screening Systems for Early Disease Prediction, Detection, and Prevention
May 192019
 

by Thierry Edoh (Author, Editor), Pravin Pawar (Editor), Sagar Mohammad (Editor)

With the development of advanced screening procedures and techniques, certain limitations of the existing screening processes for disease methodologies and paradigms have been noted. More accurate and less invasive screening methods are needed to diagnose and treat health disorders and diseases before symptoms appear.

Pre-Screening Systems for Early Disease Prediction, Detection, and Prevention is a pivotal reference source that utilizes advanced ICT techniques to solve problems in health data collection, analysis, and interpretation, as well as improve existing health systems for the advanced screening of diseases. Using non-invasive biomedical sensor devices and internet of things technology, this book examines safer methods to accelerate disease detection and effectively treat patients while challenging previously used pre-screening processes. While highlighting topics such as the applications of machine learning, patient safety, diagnostics models, and condition management, this publication is ideally designed for healthcare specialists, researchers in health informatics, industry practitioners, and academics

by David H., Ph.D. Fukuda (Author)

Many scientific sport assessment resources are difficult to understand, can be time consuming to implement, and provide data that are difficult to analyze. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance effectively solves those problems in this practical, user-friendly guide to performance-based evaluation.

A perfect resource for coaches and fitness professionals, Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance is a streamlined guide through the process of identifying appropriate tests for individuals or teams, making use of common low-cost equipment to administer the tests, interpreting data, adjusting training programs based on the results, and continually monitoring training.

For each assessment, this text walks you through a step-by-step process and includes a script of directions to give the athlete or client being tested to ensure the tests are performed correctly. You’ll find a variety of protocols that do not require complicated equipment and can be conveniently conducted in your normal training environment. You’ll be able to assess your athletes or clients in the following areas:

• Anthropometrics and body composition

• Flexibility and balance

• Agility and sprinting

• Power

• Muscular strength and endurance

• Cardiorespiratory fitness

In addition, each assessment is accompanied by normative data to set baseline evaluations and to monitor progress over time. As a refreshing break from the typical complex tables, the normative data are displayed in modern, simplified figures that make it easy to quickly evaluate test results.

Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance takes the guesswork out of determining which tests to administer and what equipment is needed. It will equip you with the tools needed to help your athletes and clients achieve even greater success.

CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of the Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance With CE Exam package that includes both the book and the exam
