Mar 202018

 Chronic heart disease impacts more than 17 million Americans, and lifestyle and mental health problems are major contributors to the everyday burden of this disease. In this brief yet thorough primer, Matthew Burg – an expert in the psychosocial aspects of cardiovascular medicine – provides mental health practitioners with the foundational knowledge they need to understand and work with cardiac patients.

Burg describes how psychologists can help cardiac patients adjust to their conditions, for example by changing unhealthy behaviors and coping with invasive medical interventions, including surgeries and implantable devices. He also introduces readers to specific assessment and intervention methods that can be applied to a variety of comorbid psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety, sleep dysregulation, and sexual dysfunction. Special attention is given to the role that family and other social networks play in the development and treatment of heart disease. Burg also uses the palliative care model to illustrate how clinicians can provide relief to patients facing end-of-life dilemmas.

This concise primer introduces mental health practitioners to cardiovascular behavioral medicine. Matthew Burg reviews fundamental information about the etiology and medical treatment of chronic heart disease, providing a foundation from which readers can learn to assess and treat cardiac patients. In addition to surveying methods and strategies for addressing comorbid psychological disorders, Burg describes how psychologists can help clients adjust to their conditions, change unhealthy behaviors, cope with invasive medical procedures, build social support networks, and face end-of-life issues.

Giant Intracranial Aneurysms: A Case-Based Atlas of Imaging and Treatment

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on Giant Intracranial Aneurysms: A Case-Based Atlas of Imaging and Treatment
Mar 202018

This atlas focuses on the imaging and treatment options available for giant intracranial aneurysms since 1990s in the beginning of the so-called modern endovascular era. During this period, there were significant advances made in the therapy of small intracranial aneurysms though the treatment of giant aneurysms continued to pose an insurmountable challenge. At the turn of this century, this grim scenario gradually improved with better understanding of the pathophysiology of giant intracranial aneurysms. This changed scenario in giant intracranial aneurysm therapy has been illustrated with the aid of informative clinical case studies. The clinical presentation of giant aneurysms in adults and children is described as are the merits of different imaging modalities explained and illustrated. Extensive consideration has been given to modern fusion imaging that has improved our insight into the nature of the disease. Endovascular treatment approaches (including illustrative open surgical approaches) and reconstructive and deconstructive strategies are fully documented, with careful attention given to factors that influence management strategies, treatment choice and complications.The atlas will be a valuable reference and practical aid for neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, fellowship trainees, postgraduate & graduate students.

Allergy Prevention and Exacerbation: The Paradox of Microbial Impact on the Immune System

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Allergy Prevention and Exacerbation: The Paradox of Microbial Impact on the Immune System
Mar 202018

Allergy is developing into one of the most prevalent diseases affecting individuals in the very early days of life. While the cause of this epidemic is still unclear, it appears that the westernized life style is playing an important role, which includes nutrition, possibly air pollution as well as hygienic conditions. While epidemiologic studies were able to narrow down these factors, basic research discovered novel mechanisms that control the organism´s tolerance against allergens. Particularly interesting is the role of microorganisms that colonize or infect a host and thereby cause damage and immunological activation followed by sensitization or exacerbation of already existing sensitizations. However at the same time microbial activation of the immune system can help to generate a protective immunity that prevents allergen sensitization. The current book is collecting these evidences and connects epidemiologic and clinical mechanistic knowledge. Only the synthesis of this knowledge will help to find solutions to the ongoing allergy epidemic in terms of public health activities, prevention and therapy.

Critical Care Nutrition Therapy for Non-nutritionists

 Critical Care  Comments Off on Critical Care Nutrition Therapy for Non-nutritionists
Mar 202018

This book offers a pragmatic approach to day-to-day metabolic and nutritional care based on physiological considerations. Due to the numerous controversial trials published in the last 15 years, there is no clear guidance for intensive care physicians regarding the metabolic and nutritional management of patients. This has resulted in a return to underfeeding and related complications in most ICUs worldwide as shown by the latest Nutrition Day data.
Using a structured, logical approach, the book examines practical solutions for artificial feeding in complex areas of critical care (brain injuries, burns, cardiac failure, ECMO, intestinal failure, long term patient, renal failure, metabolic diseases, obesity, old patients) and discusses measurement of the results of metabolic interventions. It also includes dedicated chapters focusing on specific problems, in order to avoid complications. Critical Care Nutrition Therapy for Non-nutritionists is a valuable resource for all general ICUs and ICU subspecialties such as cardiovascular, neuro, gastrointestinal and burns ICUs.
