Nov 242018
 

This Atlas depicts in a clear manner the use of regional skin, muscle and musculocutaneous flaps as well as donor sites from distant regions of the body where vascularized skin, muscle, bone, and nerves can be harvested and transferred to the head and neck. Otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons and general surgeons use both regional and free flaps to reconstruct damage to the head and neck caused by cancer and trauma. This Atlas provides the surgeon with techniques for mastering different donor sites needed to find solutions to virtually every reconstruction problem. It provides detailed descriptions of the anatomy and harvesting techniques of the major regional and free-flap donor sites currently employed in head and neck reconstruction.

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Holistic Reflexology: Essential Oils and Crystal Massage in Reflex Zone Therapy
Nov 142018
 

A guide to reflexology treatments combined with complementary therapies to restore energetic balance, relieve pain, and support healing

• Provides more than 30 full-color maps of reflex zone systems from head to toe, including the ears, mouth, tongue, fingernails, and torso
• Explains how to incorporate supportive therapies such as essential oils, crystal wand massage, and visualization to maximize healing
• Examines the history and evolution of reflexology, revealing both its Eastern and Western roots, as well as recent international advancements

Expanding the practice of reflexology beyond the feet and hands, Ewald Kliegel illustrates how to precisely and quickly treat different emotional and physical disorders with an integrated combination of reflexology and complementary therapies. Applying the fundamental principles of reflexology to the entire body, he provides more than 30 full-color maps of reflex zones from head to toe, including reflex zone systems of the ears, mouth, tongue, fingernails, and torso.

The author details reflexology techniques for each reflex zone and discusses how to incorporate essential oils and gemstones during active touch and reflexology sessions, including the benefits of crystal massage for post-stroke recovery. Drawing on international advancements in reflexology, including the work of craniosacral reflexologist Martine Faure-Alderson, Russian researcher Alexander Kachan, Chinese biologist Zhang Yingquing, and Korean physician Tae Woo Yoo, Kliegel examines how to integrate Yin-Yang massage strokes, metacarpal reflexology techniques, Korean Hand treatments, and craniosacral massage principles into reflexology treatments to restore energetic balance, relieve pain, and support healing. He outlines specific treatment protocols, including holistic reflexology treatments for headache, digestive problems, and back pain. Providing step-by-step instructions for diagnostic testing, he also outlines supportive approaches such as visualization to balance the energies of the body and an active meditation to troubleshoot congested locales in the body.

Examining the history and evolution of reflexology, the author reveals not only the ancient Eastern medical practices that played a role in reflexology’s genesis, but also its ancient European roots. Providing a truly holistic and integrative approach to reflexology, Kliegel reveals many different hands-on paths to healing that embrace the energetic interconnections of mind and body.

Damage-Associated Molecular Patterns in Human Diseases: Volume 1: Injury-Induced Innate Immune Responses

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Damage-Associated Molecular Patterns in Human Diseases: Volume 1: Injury-Induced Innate Immune Responses
Nov 082018
 

This book presents current understanding of the importance of modern immunology in the etiopathogenesis of human diseases and explores how this understanding is impacting on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prophylaxis. As the core of modern immunology, the “danger/injury model” is introduced and addressed throughout the book. Volume I of the book describes the network of damage-associated molecular pattern molecules (DAMPs) and examines the central role of DAMPs in cellular stress responses and associated regulated cell death, the promotion and resolution of inflammation, the activation of innate lymphoid cells and unconventional T cells, the stimulation of adaptive immunity, and tissue repair.
The significance of DAMPs in a wide range of human diseases will then be explored in Volume II of the book, with discussion of the implications of injury-induced innate immunity for present and future treatments. This book is written for professionals from all medical and paramedical disciplines who are interested in the introduction of innovative data from immunity and inflammation research into clinical practice. The readership will include practitioners and clinicians such as hematologists, rheumatologists, traumatologists, oncologists, intensive care anesthetists, endocrinologists such as diabetologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, pharmacists, and transplantologists.

Great Health Care: Making It Happen

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Great Health Care: Making It Happen
Nov 062018
 


Great Health Care is enlightening and entertaining. It’s a must read for physicians, patients, health policymakers and administrators, and the interested public–-anyone who wants to understand what great health care is, and how we might build it together.

The authors share their stories and motivations and the methods they have used to transform care for their own patients within their own practices and health systems. They thoughtfully explore how we got into this mess, how we can get out of it, and the barriers to making it happen. “It is not only the impact of chronic diseases on our health and economy that draws us to this subject. It is the intriguing and rewarding potential for improving the status quo through redesigning how chronic disease care is provided and paid for.” (Timothy Harrington, MD) “You can’t do things differently until you see things differently.” (Eric Newman, MD) “We start people on the road to recovery, but the 12 weeks of cardiac rehabilitation is just the warm-up period. The really important part is what happens afterward.” (Richard Lueker, MD, Beth McCormick, MS) “We believe the extra-ordinary efforts of our program coordinators are key to our clients’ wellbeing and our unusually low readmission rate.” (Kathi Farrell, RN, BSN, PHN, Kathleen Sullivan, RN, MSN) “In real life, we are not usually given the chance to have a do-over. But we are given the chance to continuously improve. With the right skill sets, and the right partners, we can transform.” (Eric Newman, MD)
