Modeling the Injury Flow and Treatment after Major Earthquakes


This book discuss a series of earthquake emergency medical rescue complex models, which can provide theoretical support for medical disaster rescue work in the future. This book consists of three parts. The first part is an introduction (chapter 1) which makes an overview of the purpose, meaning, methods and relative theory using in the research. The second part (chapter 2 to 8) includes “casualty flow” related factors such as the occurrences of earthquake casualty, the Length of Stay among the Hospitalized Patients, the medical evacuation in earthquake and rescue force related factors such as the medical rescue forces allocation in earthquake, the organization and command of earthquake rescue forces, Location and Distribution of Medical Rescue Institutions and from peacetime to wartime in hospital.

Trauma Induced Coagulopathy


This text is aimed at defining the current concepts that define trauma induced coagulopathy by critically analyzing the most up-to-date studies from a clinical and basic science perspective. It will serve as a reference source for any clinician interested in reviewing the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of the coagulopathic trauma patient, and the data that supports it. By meticulously describing the methodology of most traditional as well as state of the art coagulation assays the reader will have full understanding of the tests that are used to study trauma induced coagulopathy. The evolving use of blood products as well as recently introduced hemostatic medications are reviewed in detail.
Trauma Induced Coagulopathy will also be a valuable source for quick reference to the clinician that is faced with specific clinical challenges when managing coagulopathy.

Essential Guide to Acute Care


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.

Starting with the concept of patients at risk, the Essential Guide to Acute Care explains how to recognise and manage the generic altered physiology that accompanies acute illness.

The principles of acute care are explained simply yet comprehensively. Throughout the book ‘mini-tutorials’ expand on the latest thinking or controversies, and practical case histories reinforce learning at the end of each chapter. The chapters are designed to be read by individuals or used for group tutorials in acute care.

Extensively rewritten and updated, this second edition is essential reading for anyone who looks after acutely ill adults, including:

  • Foundation Programme trainees and trainers
  • Trainees in medicine, surgery, anaesthesia and emergency medicine
  • Final year medical students
  • Nursing staff and allied professionals working in critical care

Irwin and Rippe’s Intensive Care Medicine


Irwin and Rippe’s Intensive Care Medicine is a comprehensive textbook covering both the theoretical and practical aspects of medical and surgical critical care. The Seventh Edition will again be presented as a single volume, and will retain the organizational structure established in in the Fifth Edition—a major overhaul from its two–volume predecessors.

Thoroughly updated for its Seventh Edition, this classic reference remains an unsurpassed source of definitive, practical guidance on adult patient care in the ICU. It provides encyclopedic, multidisciplinary coverage of both medical and surgical intensive care and includes a “how-to” atlas of procedures and a new section on noninvasive monitoring. Each chapter, completely revised, identifies Advances in Management based on randomized controlled clinical trials. The cardiology section has been completely rewritten to reflect advances in management of acute coronary syndromes. Also included are extensive updates on management of COPD, diabetes, oncologic emergencies, and overdoses and poisonings.
 
A companion website will provide instant access to the complete and fully searchable text.

Paediatric and Neonatal Critical Care Transport


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Peter Barry, Andrew Leslie

Sick babies and children are moved between hospitals for many reasons, often to receive specialist care and treatment not available locally. For the transfer to be safe and effective it is necessary to plan carefully for these occasions, and for the doctors and nurses attending the transport to be able to provide intensive care on the move.

The book provides guidance in both of these major areas. The first section – ‘Planning for Safe and Effective Transport’ – details issues to be considered by senior staff in setting-up or modernising a transport programme. General principles and relevant physiology are outlined, and vehicles and equipment are discussed in depth. The second section – ‘Practical Transport Management’ – is concerned with different patient groups and key clinical issues. These include the distinctive features of neonatal and paediatric patients, and management of airway, breathing and circulation. Other chapters discuss airborne transport, pharmacology, trauma, and special interventions for transport such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and inhaled nitric oxide.
