Physical Assessment of the Newborn : A Comprehensive Approach to the Art of Physical Examination, Sixth Edition

 Ob/Gynae  Comments Off on Physical Assessment of the Newborn : A Comprehensive Approach to the Art of Physical Examination, Sixth Edition
Apr 252019
 

The newly revised, 25th anniversary edition of this definitive publication on neonatal care continues to illustrate how to systematically and accurately gather assessment data and interpret results. Because even normal newborns feature a wide range of physical variation, subtle signs that indicate internal malformations or syndromes may escape notice without a proper assessment. Many problems in the neonate can be noticed early by an astute nurse, neonatal nurse practitioner, neonatal physician assistant, or physician with honed assessment skills, long before electronic monitors or other equipment can detect them.

Physical Assessment of the Newborn, Sixth Edition, addresses the physical, physiologic, neurologic, and behavioral implications of a thorough assessment, and explains how healthcare providers can reduce the risks associated with the transition to extrauterine life and the neonatal period. Grounded with a scientific basis and rationale, each system assessment represents the most up-to-date clinical content. Because assessment skills are such an integral aspect of practice, many individuals take them for granted, yet all health professionals who perform newborn examinations—including nurses, neonatal and pediatric nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, physicians, therapists, and students preparing for advanced practice roles in neonatal care—can benefit from the essential content presented in this book.

New to the Sixth Edition:

– Provides clinical updates throughout
– Presents an enhanced art program
– Offers an all-new chapter on the perinatally substance-exposed neonate
– Includes an image bank and PowerPoints

Practical Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology

 Ob/Gynae, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Practical Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
Apr 122019
 


The gynecologic needs of younger patients are variable and complex
Clinicians are often uncomfortable with the gynecologic concerns of young girls and developing women. How can I put the patient at ease? What are the rights of the patient and her parents? How do I ask the questions in a way that allows her to trust me so that I can better understand her medical and social situation?

In Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, Dr Hillard has designed a new textbook that puts the patient at the center. It follows the patient’s life and her changing needs as she matures. An emphasis on effective, patient-friendly encounters is the prelude to a sensitive clinical approach to intimate, potentially awkward, clinical challenges. Short, practical chapters provide guidance on the issues rather than an academic treatise.

This ‘in the office’ guide to effective patient care is informed by evidence-based practice and backed by a wealth of practical features:

• Algorithms and guidelines to most effective approaches
• ‘Tips and Tricks’ boxes so you can improve you clinical outcomes
• ‘Caution’ warning boxes so you can avoid complications
• ‘Science Revisited’ boxes give a quick reminder of the basic science principles

Dr Hillard has assembled an expert group of authors to provide straightforward guidance to caring for and reassuring your younger patients and their parents. If you provide clinical care to girls and young women then Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology is designed for you.

Hyperthermia in Oncology

 Ob/Gynae  Comments Off on Hyperthermia in Oncology
Mar 262019
 

Hyperthermia in oncology is the application of heat to a patient’s body for the purpose of cancer treatment. In recent years, its use has seen rapid development, with a large amount of clinical data becoming available.

Hyperthermia in Oncology synthesizes the current research on the topic and provides treatment protocols for using localized as well as whole-body hyperthermia. The differentiating characteristic of this book is the systematic documentation of evidence.

Standard procedures for cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management are included along with guidance for evaluating clinical therapeutic effects. The book examines the unique effects of hyperthermia treatment with a large quantity of evidence-based data from both medical research and clinical practice. It reviews outcomes of cancer patients clinically treated at Clifford Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility with Joint Commission International accreditation located in Guangzhou, China.

A diverse set of clinical cases is discussed. For each case, a scientific, rational, and practical patient treatment plan is presented. The amount and type of heat administered to patients are analyzed when hyperthermia is used in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or other therapeutic strategies.

Although hyperthermia is not an independent treatment method for cancer, it can play a significant synergistic and complementary role. As such, this book can serve as a valuable clinical guide for the effective use of hyperthermia in integrative cancer therapy.

The book is written by nurse practitioners with combined experience of more than 50 years of practice in women’s health and obstetrics. Written for NPs, CNMs, and PAs, it provides a consistent, easy-to-access outline format that includes definition, etiology, history, physical exam, lab exam, differential diagnosis, treatment, complications, consultation/referral, and follow-up.

Radiation Therapy Techniques for Gynecological Cancers: A Comprehensive Practical Guide

 Ob/Gynae, Oncology  Comments Off on Radiation Therapy Techniques for Gynecological Cancers: A Comprehensive Practical Guide
Mar 072019
 

This book is a practical guide to the use of modern radiation therapy techniques in women with gynecological cancers. Step-by-step instruction is provided on simulation, contouring, and treatment planning and delivery for cancers of the cervix, endometrium, vagina, and vulva. Beyond external beam radiation delivery, full details are presented on three-dimensional brachytherapy at all sites for which it is applicable. Moreover, in-depth guidance is offered on the various advanced techniques of radiation delivery, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image guidance for external beam and brachytherapy, and stereotactic body radiotherapy.

Radiation therapy is a critical component of the multidisciplinary management of gynecological tumors. With modern technology, both external beam radiation and brachytherapy can be delivered in a highly conformal way. This requires precise contouring and accurate planning techniques. In clearly describing the indications for and the delivery of quality radiation therapy for gynecological tumors, this book will benefit radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and radiotherapy residents.
