Biomechanics of the Human Stomach


By (author): Roustem N. Miftahof

This book concerns the mathematical modeling and computer simulation of the human stomach. It follows the four modern P’s (prevention, prediction, personalization, and precision in medicine) approach in addressing the highly heterogeneous nature of processes underlying gastric motility disorders manifested as gastroparesis, functional dyspepsia, myenteric enteropathy etc.  The book comprehensively guides readers through the fundamental theoretical concepts to complex physiological models of the organ.  This requires a deep and thorough understanding of driving pathophysiological mechanisms as well as the collaborative effort of specialists working in fundamental and biological science. Such a multidisciplinary partnership is vital because it upholds gnostic capabilities and provides the exchange of thoughts and ideas thus offering broad perspectives into the evolution and management of diseases. The book is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, computational biologists, bioengineers, physicians, physiologists and researchers working in various fields of biomedicine.

Advanced ICD-10 for Physicians Including Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury


By (author): Eugene Fukumoto

ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), a medical classification list by the World Health Organization. It contains codes for diseases, signs and symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances, and external causes of injury of diseases. The code set allows more than 14,000 different codes and permits the tracking of many new diagnoses.

The U.S. has used ICD-10-CM (Clinical Modification) since October, 2015. This national variant of ICD-10 was provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics, and the use of ICD-10-CM codes are now mandated for all inpatient medical reporting requirements.

This book is for physicians, practice managers and all others who need learn ICD-10. It’s designed for the clinician to learn how to put their diagnosis into a code and not rely on staff or computer software programs to decide it form them.

ICD-10 is a complex system of coding and Medicare and third party insurers have been lenient giving providers a year to get used to the coding system. As a result, physicians and their staff have become very complacent regarding proper coding. However, Medicare and third party insurers will soon begin to deny claims which are not coded correctly, which in turn will cost physician groups time and money.

This book focuses on Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury, a very large segment of the healthcare industry and is a new area to ICD-10. The diagnosis coding for injuries is much different than for Medicare or group insurance and unless the physicians and their staff learn how to use it properly, they risk losing income for themselves and worse, they risk losing the case for the patient.

Patient Safety: A Case-Based Comprehensive Guide


Despite the evolution and growing awareness of patient safety, many medical professionals are not a part of this important conversation.  Clinicians often believe they are too busy taking care of patients to adopt and implement patient safety initiatives and that acknowledging medical errors is an affront to their skills.

Patient Safety provides clinicians with a better understanding of the prevalence, causes and solutions for medical errors; bringing best practice principles to the bedside.  Written by experts from a variety of backgrounds, each chapter features an analysis of clinical cases based on the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) methodology, along with case-based discussions on various patient safety topics.  The systems and processes outlined in the book are general and broadly applicable to institutions of all sizes and structures.

The core ethic of medical professionals is to “do no harm”.  Patient Safety is a comprehensive resource for physicians, nurses and students, as well as healthcare leaders and administrators for identifying, solving and preventing medical error.

In the healthcare job market, much has changed in the past few years. Qualified healthcare workers are in demand, and in no area is this so apparent as in medical assisting. The challenges for the programs that train these assistants are multi-faceted:

  • Guidelines, technologies, and the demands of this industry are changing fast. It is hard to keep up with what is new and expected when you have a full classroom.
  • Today’s student brings unique challenges to an educational environment. In addition to skills and tasks, you have to teach critical thinking, professionalism, and communication.
  • In a classroom of mixed generations, ability levels, and learning types, engaging all of the students is critical, but requires a multitude of options, which can be tough to plan for an already time-pressed instructor.

Because of our understanding of the above, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins’ Comprehensive Medical Assisting, Fourth Edition, is the medical assisting text designed to meet your challenges. In fact, this dynamic package of text and resources represent more than just a textbook, instead providing a suite of learning resources. This is the one text aimed at making sure that every graduate can quickly change their cap and gown for a set of scrubs and immediately be a vital member of the medical office. We do this by:

Perioperative Inflammation as Triggering Origin of Metastasis Development


The book will explain previously unconnected clinical data such as why mammography works better for women age 50-59 than it does for women age 40-49, why adjuvant chemotherapy works best for premenopausal patients with positive lymph nodes, and it may also explain the racial disparity in outcome. In particular, it points to the perioperative period when systemic inflammation persists for a week or so. This can lead to a variety of mechanisms whereby single cancer cells (perhaps from the marrow) begin division and angiogenesis of dormant avascular micrometastases occurs leading to early relapses.

With chapters presented from distinguished scientists and physicians in a variety of specialties that relate to and border the effects we present, this volume can be used as a reference for practicing physicians and as a jumping-off point for researchers to explore new therapeutic opportunities.

Physician-Assisted Death: What Everyone Needs to Know®


By (author): Wayne Sumner

The issue of physician-assisted death is now firmly on the American public agenda. Already legal in five states, it is the subject of intense public opinion battles across the country. Driven by an increasingly aging population, and a baby boom generation just starting to enter its senior years, the issue is not going to go away anytime soon. In Physician-Assisted Death, L.W. Sumner equips readers with everything they need to know to take a reasoned and informed position in this important debate.

The book provides needed context for the debate by situating physician-assisted death within the wider framework of end-of-life care and explaining why the movement to legalize it now enjoys such strong public support. It also reviews that movement’s successes to date, beginning in Oregon in 1994 and now extending to eleven jurisdictions across three continents.

Like abortion, physician-assisted death is ethically controversial and the subject of passionately held opinions. The central chapters of the book review the main arguments utilized by both sides of the controversy: on the one hand, appeals to patient autonomy and the relief of suffering, on the other the claim that taking active steps to hasten death inevitably violates the sanctity of life.

The book then explores both the case in favor of legalization and the case against, focusing in the latter instance on the risk of abuse and the possibility of slippery slopes. In this context the experience of jurisdictions that have already taken the step of legalization is carefully reviewed to see what lessons might be extracted from it. It then identifies some further issues that lie beyond the boundaries of the current debate but will have to be faced sometime down the road: euthanasia for patients who are permanently unconscious or have become seriously demented and for severely compromised newborns.

The book concludes by considering the various possible routes to legalization, both political and judicial. Readers will then be prepared to decide for themselves just where they stand when they confront the issue both in their own jurisdiction and in their own lives.

The Doctor Crisis: How Physicians Can, and Must, Lead the Way to Better Health Care


By (author): Jack Cochran, Charles C. Kenney

Calming fears, alleviating suffering, enhancing and saving lives—this is what motivates doctors virtually every single day. When the structure and culture in which physicians work are well aligned, being a doctor is a most rewarding job. But something has gone wrong in the physician world, and it is urgent that we fix it.

Fundamental flaws in the US health care system make it more difficult and less rewarding than ever to be a doctor. The convergence of a complex amalgam of forces prevents primary care and specialty physicians from doing what they most want to do: Put their patients first at every step in the care process every time. Barriers include regulation, bureaucracy, the liability burden, reduced reimbursements, and much more. Physicians must accept the responsibility for guiding our nation toward a better health care delivery system, but the pathway forward—amidst jarring changes in our health care system—is not always clear.

In The Doctor Crisis, Dr. Jack Cochran, executive director of The Permanente Federation, and author Charles Kenney show how we can improve health care on a grassroots level, regardless of political policy disputes, by improving conditions for physicians and asking them to take on broader accountability; by calling on physicians to be effective leaders as well as excellent clinicians. The authors clarify the necessary steps required to enable physicians to focus on patient care and offer concrete ideas for establishing systems that place patients’ needs above all else. Cochran and Kenney make a compelling case that fixing the doctor crisis is a prerequisite to achieving access to quality and affordable health care throughout the United States.
