Translational Speech-language Pathology and Audiology: Essays in Honor of Dr. Sadanand Singh

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Robert Goldfarb

Translational research has been present and ongoing for decades and yet, in spite of The National Institutes of Health promoting this “bench-to-bedside” approach since 2006, its adoption by the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology has been relatively scant and mostly individually approached. Although efforts have been made in this direction by individuals, the communication sciences and disorders professions are somewhat behind the curve in not addressing this issue directly. For practicing clinicians, researchers, and students taking research seminars, Translational Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology examines the broad fields of laboratory, clinical, and public health research. Interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary in scope, it aims to expedite the translation of related discoveries into new and improved standards of care. This series of short essays also honors Dr. Sadanand Singh, the late CEO and Founder of Plural Publishing, Inc., who encouraged innovation throughout his career. All royalties will be donated to the San Diego Foundation/Dr. Sadanand Singh Fund.

Endogenous Interferences in Clinical Laboratory Tests (Patient Safety)

By (author): Martin H. Kroll

The goal of clinical laboratories is to produce accurate information for clinical decision making in medicine. More than half of the medical decisions made depend on clinical laboratory tests.

Patient safety represents an important and critical problem for laboratories. They need to assure that the information they deliver to physicians is accurate, and therefore safe for clinicians to use. Endogenous compounds can interfere with laboratory tests, decreasing accuracy and threatening patient safety. Elevated bilirubin (bilirubinemia) and elevated lipids (lipemia) are common conditions that cause significant interferences with laboratory results. Clinicians depend on laboratories to detect these endogenous interferences. Laboratories must have a means to detect these endogenous interferences, make decisions about reporting results, and evaluate their impact.

Most clinical pathology books provide only an abbreviated introduction to the subject, or provide a long list of references, without the necessary foundation for evaluating their significance. Package inserts typically provide scant information. This book provides the empirical and theoretical foundation for these interferences, describes the clinical settings where they occur, and explains their evaluation and detection, allowing the laboratory to interpret the available data on interferences and make the appropriate decision to effectively report test results while protecting patient safety.

A Practical Guide to Basic Laboratory Andrology (Cambridge Medicine (Paperback))

By (author): Lars Björndahl, David Mortimer, Christopher L. R. Barratt, Jose Antonio Castilla, Roelof Menkveld, Ulrik Kvist, Juan G. Alvarez, Trine B. Haugen

This practical, extensively illustrated handbook covers the procedures that are undertaken in andrology and ART laboratories to analyse and assess male-factor infertility, and to prepare spermatozoa for use in assisted conception therapy. The content is presented as brief, authoritative overviews of the relevant biological background for each area, plus detailed, step-by-step descriptions of the relevant analytical procedures. Each technical section includes pertinent quality control considerations, as well as the optimum presentation of results. In addition to the comprehensive ‘basic’ semen analysis, incorporating careful analysis of sperm morphology, the handbook provides established techniques for the use of computer-aided sperm analysis and sperm functional assessment. Throughout the handbook the interpretation of laboratory results in the clinical context is highlighted, and safe laboratory practice is emphasized. It is an invaluable resource to all scientists and technicians who perform diagnostic testing for male-factor infertility.

The Female Pelvic Floor: Function, Dysfunction and Management According to the Integral Theory

By (author): Peter E. Papa Petros

I f rst encountered the Integral T eory system in the early 1990’s at the Royal Perth Hospital laboratory in Western Australia where I was working on laparoscopic colposuspension. Even in prototype form, the IVS operation was so simple and ef ective that I adopted it immediately. Subsequently, based on my experiences, I wrote the following in the Medical Journal of Australia in October 1994: (the operations) promise a new era for women, virtually pain-free cure of prolapse and incontinence without catheters, and return to normal activities within days. Now, ten years later, more than 500,000 ‘tension-free’ anterior or posterior sling operations have been performed. One case in particular stands out from those early years. A woman patient in her mid-50’s came to see me with a f ve year history of urinary retention which required an indwelling catheter. T is woman had consulted more than a dozen medical specialists who had told her the same story: no cure was possible. Using the Structured Assessment of the Integral T eory it was deduced that she had a posterior zone defect. I performed a Posterior IVS. T e next day the patient was voiding spontaneously with low residuals, and she has remained well since.
