The Mechanobiology and Mechanophysiology of Military-Related Injuries (Studies in Mechanobiology, Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials)

This book provides a state-of-the-art update, as well as perspectives on future directions of research and clinical applications in the implementation of biomechanical and biophysical experimental, theoretical and computational models which are relevant to military medicine. Such experimental and modeling efforts are helpful, on the one hand, in understanding the aetiology, pathophysiology and dynamics of injury development and on the other hand in guiding the development of better equipment and protective gear or devices that should ultimately reduce the prevalence and incidence of injuries or lessen their hazardous effects. The book is useful for military-oriented biomedical engineers and medical physicists, as well as for military physiologists and other medical specialists who are interested in the science and technology implemented in modern investigations of military related injuries.

Small-Sided and Conditioned Games in Soccer Training: The Science and Practical Applications (SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology)

By (author): Filipe Manuel Clemente

This book reviews the general acute effects and adaptations of small-sided and conditioned games (SSCGs) in terms of physiological responses, technical performance and methodology/periodization in the game of soccer. It also reviews the many studies conducted in the past decade to investigate the influence of SSCGs on physiological responses and technical performance in soccer training. SSCGs, which are smaller and adapted versions of formal team sports, are very popular training drills for players at all ability levels and competitive levels and offer an alternative to traditional fitness training. Exploring their role in depth, this book offers a valuable resource for academics, researchers and coaches with an interest in developing improved training techniques for soccer.

Principles of Physiology for the Anaesthetist, Second edition

By (author): Peter Kam, Ian Power

The practice of anaesthesia, including intensive care medicine and pain management, requires a considerable understanding of normal and abnormal physiology. This is reflected in postgraduate examinations in anaesthesia where candidates are questioned in depth about many aspects of physiology.

The second edition of this well-received textbook continues to provide candidates with a ‘tailor-made’ alternative to more general physiology textbooks, delivering information designed and written specifically with the trainee anaesthetist in mind. The authors bring their extensive experience of teaching physiology to the book in order to improve the understanding of the fundamentals of human physiology in relation to the work of the anaesthetist. The content covers the physiology of all the major organ systems, with specific emphasis on the nervous, respiratory and cardiovascular systems. In addition, there are special sections on the physiology of pain, the physiology of ageing and the physiological effects of specific environments, all highly relevant to anaesthetic practice. Diagrams throughout, praised in reviews of the first edition, are used to support the text and to aid understanding of difficult concepts. The second edition also incorporates a number of new features – learning objectives, areas for reflection and a handy summary of physiological equations. It will remain an invaluable reference throughout anaesthetic training and beyond, and a useful revision aid.

Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation: Including Pathophysiology and Clinical Applications

By (author): Karlman Wasserman MD PhD, James E. Hansen MD, Darryl Y. Sue MD, William W. Stringer MD, Kathy E. Sietsema MD, Xing-Guo Sun MD, Brian J. Whipp PhD DSc

Discover what exercise testing can reveal about cardiopulmonary, vascular, and muscular health. Now in its Fifth Edition, Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation continues to deliver timely information on the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise and their relevance to clinical medicine.

The text begins by explaining the processes by which cells receive oxygen and dispose of carbon dioxide produced as a byproduct of exercise and metabolism. By measuring gas exchange, we can better evaluate cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary functioning, as well as cellular respiration. Detailed discussions explore various types of exercise intolerance, their effects on test results, and clinical diagnoses. Using real-world cases, the text illustrates how cardiopulmonary exercise testing can evaluate the functional competency of each component in the coupling of cellular to external respiration, including the cardiovascular system. Expert authors’ comments, analysis, and conclusions for each case, help to improve readers’ interpretive and diagnostic skills.

This in-depth resource provides…

• Updated content and new graphics present the most current information in a reader-friendly format.
• Updated flow charts detail clinical presentations and differential diagnosis
• More than 80 case presentations improve diagnostic accuracy.
• Normal test values for a wide range of patient groups provide a basis for comparison and help to identify abnormalities.
• Companion website includes the complete text, PLUS 30 additional case presentations.

The Artificial Kidney: Physiological Modeling and Tissue Engineering (Tissue Engineering Intelligence Unit 3)

By (author): John K. Leypoldt

Fundamental engineering principles are essential to consider when designing and developing artificial organs, especially the artificial kidney. Early contributors to the development of the artificial kidney were primarily chemical and electrical engineers who developed improved hemodialysis membranes, methods for producing large quantities of dialysis solutions and easy to use machines or dialysis delivery systems. Efforts along these lines continue today to improve hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis therapies.

Recent engineering efforts to improve artificial kidney therapies have focussed on developing a better understanding of the effect of hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis on patient physiology or pathophysiology and to develop improved treatments using recent advances in tissue, cellular and genetic engineering. Investigators active in these areas have contributed authoritative chapters to this book.

The focus of this book was to provide bioengineers and other interested researchers with comprehensive reviews of active research related to the artificial kidney. Each chapter begins from first principles and develops the topic to include the most recent research. The chapter authors are experts in their respective fields. This approach will permit both the student and the expert to gain a thorough understanding of the research area.
