Neonatal Infections: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management

 Nephrology, Pathology, Physiology  Comments Off on Neonatal Infections: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management
Jul 052018
 

There are approximately 4 million newborns annually in the United States, including 400,000 infants born preterm. This care occurs in nurseries of all acuity levels, sizes, and regions across the country and is provided by a variety of providers, including pediatricians, family practice doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
The most common complication during the newborn period is suspected or proven infection – either those acquired during the delivery itself or before delivery in the womb. Indeed, 4 of the 8 most commonly-prescribed medications in newborns annually are antibiotics. Therefore, these providers must all be knowledgeable about the clinical presentation, epidemiology, and approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neonatal infections. However, many of these nurseries do not have convenient access to pediatric infectious disease consultation or support, and would benefit from a convenient reference guide.
This book effectively and succinctly covers the pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, approach to diagnosis and treatment, and important aspects of preventative care for the most frequently encountered neonatal and congenital infections. The first section discusses common neonatal infections (i.e., those acquired during or after delivery), including sepsis, meningitis, pneumonia, and other focal infections. The second section covers the most frequently encountered congenital infections (i.e., those acquired via the placenta while the fetus is still in-utero). Finally, the concluding section discusses the basics of infection prevention in the nursery setting, including general principles of infection prevention, how to apply those principles to families, and how to manage a suspected outbreak of infection within a nursery.
This book is a unique contribution to the field. Existing texts such as the AAP Red Book fold neonatal infections in within chapters on a given pathogen, but the information is difficult to find and access quickly. By covering neonatal and congenital infections thoroughly while still keeping each section clear and concise, this Handbook will be a valuable resource for the busy nursery provider.

200 Best of Five Questions for Nephrology Specialty Certificate Exam with Revision Notes and Guidelines (2017 Release)

 Nephrology  Comments Off on 200 Best of Five Questions for Nephrology Specialty Certificate Exam with Revision Notes and Guidelines (2017 Release)
Jun 302018
 

Introduced in 2010, the Nephrology SCE (Specialty Certificate Examination)
is compulsory for the Nephrology trainees to gain a CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training) in the Specialty. Candidates who have sat for the exam with their written MRCP are familiar with the best of five formats where they select the best of five plausible and comparable answers. This requires both knowledge and exam technique that is often best achieved through practice questions.

Currently, difficulty of exam preparation is the unavailability of reliable practice questions. This book seeks to fill that void by providing the best of five questions that resemble the exam format with their explanatory answers. The question material was written with the 2010 syllabus in mind and based on contemporary guidelines from KDIGO, KDOQI, ISPD and Renal Association.

Our goal was to create a valuable tool for all trainees revising for the SCE exam, American Board of Nephrology and Arab Board of Nephrology Exam.

Our authors were supported by consultants in the region and we offer our thanks to them all.
We would like to extend our gratitude to our parents and families. Without their support, blessings and encouragement this would not be possible.

We acknowledge the graciousness of our patients who consented the publishing of their pictures for education purposes. We would also like to credit Dr. Ramesh Abdullah for providing renal histology slides from his personal collection.

Finally, much appreciation is given to Professor Philip Kalra for providing his inspirational commentary for this book.

The Power of Kindness: Why Empathy Is Essential in Everyday Life

 Nephrology  Comments Off on The Power of Kindness: Why Empathy Is Essential in Everyday Life
May 052018
 

As a veteran emergency room physician, Dr. Brian Goldman has a successful career setting broken bones, curing pneumonia, and otherwise pulling people back from the brink of medical emergency. He always believed that caring came naturally to physicians. But time, stress, errors, and heavy expectations left him wondering if he might not be the same caring doctor he thought he was at the beginning of his career. He wondered what kindness truly looks like—in himself and in others.

In The Power of Kindness, Goldman leaves the comfortable, familiar surroundings of the hospital in search of his own lost compassion. A top neuroscientist performs an MRI scan of his brain to see if he is hard-wired for empathy. A researcher at Western University in Ontario tests his personality and makes a startling discovery. Goldman then circles the planet in search of the most empathic people alive, to hear their stories and learn their secrets. He visits a boulevard in São Paulo, Brazil, where he meets a woman who calls a homeless poet her soulmate and reunited him with his family; a research lab in Kyoto, Japan, where he meets a lifelike, empathetic android; and a nursing home in rural Pennsylvania, where he meets a therapist at a nursing home who has an uncanny knack of knowing what’s inside the hearts and minds of people with dementia, as well as her protege, a woman who talked a gun-wielding robber into walking away from his crime. Powerful and engaging, The Power of Kindness takes us far from the theatre of medicine and into the world at large, and investigates why kindness is so vital to our existence.

Pathogenesis and Treatment in IgA Nephropathy: An International Comparison

 Nephrology, Pathology  Comments Off on Pathogenesis and Treatment in IgA Nephropathy: An International Comparison
Apr 072018
 

This book discusses the latest findings on the pathogenesis and treatment of IgA nephropathy. It particularly focuses on recently recognized initiation and progression factors and the varying treatment strategies in different regions, such as Asia, Europe, and the United States. More than 40 years have passed since Dr. Jean Berger first described primary IgA nephropathy (“Nephropathy with mesangial IgA-IgG deposits”) as a new disease entity.
Immunohistopathologically, IgA nephropathy is characterized by the granular deposition of IgA (IgA1) and C3 in the glomerular mesangial areas with mesangial cell proliferation and the expansion of mesangial matrices. It is clear that IgA nephropathy is one of the most common types of chronic glomerulonephritis in the world. This disease may lead to end-stage kidney disease, with its enormous economic impact on healthcare everywhere. Efforts by many investigators around the world have gradually clarified various aspects of the pathogenesis and treatment of IgA nephropathy. However, there are many controversial strategies for the treatment of patients with IgA nephropathy throughout the world, as there are several limitations for treatment in each country. This volume provides nephrologists everywhere with an overview and comparison of both global and regional findings in basic and clinical fields in IgA nephropathy. It covers genetic variation, aberrant IgA1 production, and classification etiology, guidelines, and treatment goals, with all chapters written by top international researchers.
