Core Topics in Perioperative Medicine


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Jonathan Hudsmith, Dan Wheeler, Arun Gupta

Undergraduate medical education is continuously changing to meet the requirements for the training of future medical practitioners. Over the last few years the concept of perioperative medicine has evolved, encompassing the preoperative assessment and optimisation of patients, the intraoperative and postoperative management of these patients and importantly the diagnosis and treatment of the critically ill patient. The relevance of this to undergraduate medical students is obvious. Core Topics in Perioperative Medicine provides concise, informative chapters on many aspects of perioperative medicine, allowing medical students to bridge the gap between final year clinical attachments in this specialty, and first year house officer jobs. It aims to guide the reader through the perioperative period via short, up-to-date chapters, each giving a comprehensive account of the subject and its relevance to perioperative medicine.

The Intensivist’s Challenge: Aging and Career Growth in a High-Stress Medical Specialty


This book brings together personal narratives from critical care medicine specialists around the world. Most of these physicians started in critical care at or before the exponential increase in technological modalities to reverse or sustain organ function, have seen patient care both ways, and have worked as many as 30 years or more at the bedside. The narratives are organized around such themes as : how and why these physicians entered the discipline of critical care; what was critical care like in the beginning; how they have experienced the flood of innovations in critical care; why they decided to retire (or not); and what their retirement options have been (or not).

Composed by influential critical care medicine specialists, The Intensivist’s Challenge: Aging and Career Growth in a High-Stress Medical Specialty is a valuable resource bringing together a discussion of the nature and problems of aging as they apply to physicians in a high-stress occupation, while assessing the value of clinical experience at the bedside in a world increasingly full of soulless technology.

The Aetiology of Deep Venous Thrombosis: A Critical, Historical and Epistemological Survey


By (author): P. Colm Malone, Paul S. Agutter

What we now call ‘deep venous thrombosis’ (DVT) has been elucidated by a diversity of investigative approaches during the past four centuries. The authors of this book survey the history of the field and ask: why has one of these perspectives – the haematological/biochemical – come to dominate research into the causation of DVT during the past 50 years and to exclude alternatives? In answering this question, the authors show that the current consensus model is conceptually flawed.

Perioperative and Critical Care Medicine: Educational Issues 2005


Continuing medical education and specialty training procedures represent highly dynamical processes, with a continuously evolving content. The specific teaching methods available (micro-teaching, team teaching, mastery learning, simulation, and e-learning) are essential elements of this process to promote professional updating and teaching at the bedside, aimed at providing an excellent clinical practice. The didactic laboratory is the core of this process: teachers, students and the School must be able to integrate in order to encourage this trend, and following this trend, the Trieste School of Medicine has long recognised the importance of supporting educational aspects and teaching programmes that promote our discipline.

This volume is the result of the co-operation of the Trieste School of Medicine with experts at a national and international level who, in 2005, took part in seminars or micro-teaching sessions held at the Cattinara University Hospital.

By (author): Nicola Cooper, Kirsty Forrest, Paul Cramp

What you really need to know, but no one told you.

The Essential Guide to Acute Care contains everything you really need to know about acute care that you can’t find in a standard textbook and have probably never been taught before.
