We have all been hypoxic. Fetal tolerance for intrauterine hypoxia arises from evolutionarily conserved physiological mechanisms, the antecedents of which can be learned from diving mammals or species at high altitudes. Understanding fetal hypoxia leads to understanding the huge physiological shifts of neonatal transition and the dangers of perinatal hypoxia.

 

This comprehensive volume of topical review articles by expert authors addresses the origins of hypoxia tolerance, the impact of oxygen on circulatory transition at birth, and the biochemistry of hypoxia in the pulmonary circuit, as well as the classification, diagnosis, and clinical management of hypoxic respiratory failure and persistent pulmonary hypertension in the term neonate.

 

The goal of Hypoxic Respiratory Failure in the Newborn is to connect our understanding of hypoxia from animals in extreme environments, with how the human fetus handles its hypoxic environment; and why the human newborn suddenly cannot. The book will educate health care professionals on how to care for newborns with hypoxic respiratory failure, including the use of up-to-date diagnostic tools and therapies. It also highlights areas of controversy and ongoing research in hypoxic respiratory failure and pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, including challenging case studies.

 

Key Features

 

    • Explores evolutionary context and comparative physiology of hypoxia tolerance in the fetus and neonate, from basic research to clinical scenarios

 

 

 

    • Provides guidance to trainees, physicians, and allied health professionals engaged in NICU care; pediatricians, cardiologists, pulmonologists, anesthesiologists, neonatologists, and physiologists to effectively manage infants in hypoxic respiratory failure

 

 

 

  • Includes case scenarios emphasizing current diagnostic and therapeutic controversies and algorithmic approaches to decipher difficult clinical cases

Medical Reasoning: The Nature and Use of Medical Knowledge 1st Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Medical Reasoning: The Nature and Use of Medical Knowledge 1st Edition
Oct 232021
 

Modern medicine is one of humankind’s greatest achievements.Yet today, frequent medical errors and irreproducibility in biomedical research suggest that tremendous challenges beset it. Understanding these challenges and trying to remedy them have driven considerable and thoughtful critical analyses, but the apparent intransigence of these problems suggests a different perspective is needed. Now more than ever, when we see options and opportunities for healthcare expanding while resources are diminishing, it is extremely important that healthcare professionals practice medicine wisely.

In Medical Reasoning, neurologist Erwin B. Montgomery, Jr. offers a new and vital perspective. He begins with the idea that the need for certainty in medical decision-making has been the primary driving force in medical reasoning. Doctors must routinely confront countless manifestations of symptoms, diseases, or behaviors in their patients. Therefore, either there are as many different “diseases” as there are patients or some economical set of principles and facts can be combined to explain each patient’s disease. The response to this epistemic conundrum has driven medicine throughout history: the challenge is to discover principles and facts and then to develop means to apply them to each unique patient in a manner that provides certainty.

This book studies the nature of medical decision making systematically and rigorously in both an analytic and historical context, addressing medicine’s unique need for certainty in the face of the enormous variety of diseases and in the manifestations of the same disease in different patients. The book also examines how the social, legal, and economic circumstances in which medical decision-making occurs greatly influence the nature of medical reasoning. Medical Reasoning is essential for those at the intersection of healthcare and philosophy.

Understanding Emg Illustrated Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Understanding Emg Illustrated Edition
Oct 202021
 

Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS) are electrodiagnostic tests used for identifying neuromuscular diseases and for assessing low-back pain and disorders of motor control. Many doctors refer their patients to the clinical neurophysiology department for electrodiagnostic
tests and are then faced with interpreting the results. This book teaches the principles of NCS and EMG, promotes better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of these techniques, and thereby improves their use. Understanding EMG is different from existing books in this field since it is
written for a large group of referring doctors and other healthcare professionals who need to know the basic principles of NCS and EMG, including when to request and how to interpret the tests, but who do not necessarily need to know how to perform them.
