Resistant Hypertension: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Treatment

 Epidemiology, Pathology, Physiology  Comments Off on Resistant Hypertension: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Treatment
May 032018
 

A growing number of people suffer from so-called resistant hypertension, that is to say, high blood pressure that does not respond to treatment. This disorder is of great current interest and importance for public health, being a common clinical problem faced by both primary care clinicians and specialists.

Furthermore, as older age and obesity are among the strongest risk factors for uncontrolled hypertension, the incidence of resistant hypertension will likely increase as the population becomes more elderly and heavier. While the prognosis of resistant hypertension is unknown, cardiovascular risk is undoubtedly increased since patients often have a history of long-standing, severe hypertension complicated by multiple other cardiovascular risk factors.

This volume, compiled by a panel of world-renowned experts, offers a comprehensive exploration of resistant hypertension, covering epidemiology, complex diagnostic aspects, and the therapeutic options currently available, with due attention to overall treatment strategies. New therapeutic agents and procedures, such as renal denervation and baroreceptor stimulation, are also described. In addition, the book addresses the economic aspects of resistant hypertension and the role of the different professional figures, from GPs to hypertension specialists, in dealing with it.

Hemodynamic Rounds: Interpretation of Cardiac Pathophysiology from Pressure Waveform Analysis

 Cardiovascular, Pathology, Physiology  Comments Off on Hemodynamic Rounds: Interpretation of Cardiac Pathophysiology from Pressure Waveform Analysis
May 022018
 

The essential resource on cardiac hemodynamics now in a new edition

Hemodynamic Rounds, Fourth Edition is intended to help cardiologists, cardiovascular fellowship trainees, residents and other members of the medical community enhance their understanding of cardiac physiology and its associated hemodynamic presentations in health and disease. This includes the basic principles of flow and pressure measurements, systemic as well as coronary hemodynamics in normal and diseased states, and changes in hemodynamics following interventional procedures ranging from TAVI and valvuloplasty to stent placement.

Like its popular predecessors, this new edition draws on case studies to illustrate characteristic cardiac hemodynamic findings and discusses the essential methods used in interpreting pressure waveforms as a diagnostic and monitoring tool.

The text is organized into chapters on specific areas of the heart, common cardiac pathophysiologic conditions, and hemodynamic situations resulting from different therapeutic procedures. It includes discussions of both normal and abnormal pressure waveforms. This new edition has been revised throughout to include brand new content on aortic and mitral valve stenosis and regurgitation as well as TAVI and mitral clip hemodynamics. Highlights include:

Essential and easy to understand resource for those required to interpret cardiac blood flow and blood pressure tracings
Covers hemodynamic assessment by cardiac disorder, plus the bedside applications of hemodynamics
Revised throughout and includes brand new content on valve stenosis and regurgitation and TAVI and mitral clip hemodynamics
Hemodynamic Rounds: Interpretation of Cardiac Pathophysiology from Pressure Waveform Analysis, Fourth Edition is an indispensable tool for all physicians, nurses, and students responsible for measuring and interpreting cardiac waveforms in cardiac diagnosis and monitoring.

Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology: 2400 Multiple Choice Questions, Second Edition

 Anatomy, Physiology  Comments Off on Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology: 2400 Multiple Choice Questions, Second Edition
Apr 182018
 

This second edition provides 2400 multiple choice questions on human anatomy and physiology, and some physical science, separated into 40 categories. The answer to each question is accompanied by an explanation. Each category has an introduction to set the scene for the questions to come. However, not all possible information is provided within these Introductions, so an Anatomy and Physiology textbook is an indispensable aid to understanding the answers. The questions have been used in end-of-semester examinations for undergraduate anatomy and physiology courses and as such reflect the focus of these particular courses and are pitched at this level to challenge students that are beginning their training in anatomy and physiology.
The question and answer combinations are intended for use by teachers, to select questions for their next examinations, and by students, when studying for an upcoming test. Students enrolled in the courses for which these questions were written include nursing, midwifery, paramedic, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nutrition and dietetics, health sciences, exercise science, and students taking an anatomy and physiology course as an elective.

Pruritus, Second Edition

 Physiology  Comments Off on Pruritus, Second Edition
Apr 162018
 

This book provides a thorough and comprehensive reference in the management of pruritus, designed to be a convenient resource for all physicians confronted with patients suffering from itch. The Editors have recruited a board of internationally renowned experts to provide an in-depth analysis of the causes and management of pruritus, including the current concepts in pathophysiology and novel therapeutics.
Acute and chronic pruritus can represent significant management issues both as a common physiological sensation and as a manifestation of dermatologic and non-dermatologic diseases. All patients suffering from itch know that it is a very awkward sensation. Unfortunately, this often significant symptom is frequently considered less severe in comparison with pain. The consequences are that research on this field has been poorer than research on pain and that pruritus is therefore more difficult to treat.
Pruritus, Second edition addresses the new concepts and discoveries that have modified our understanding of this condition. It explains the pathophysiology of itch, describes all causes, and provides guidelines for management and treatment.
