Clinical Tests for the Musculoskeletal System: Examinations – Signs – Phenomena


By (author): Johannes Buckup

The
third edition of this convenient pocket guide presents a comprehensive
collection of clinical tests for all the major musculoskeletal
structures. New tests have been added and existing tests fully revised
to include the most practical, relevant, and up-to-date information for
the effective evaluation of the musculoskeletal system.

The book
is organized by body region, with chapters devoted to the spine;
shoulder; elbow; wrist, hand, and fingers; hip; knee; and foot and
ankle. Each of these chapters opens with a figure depicting range of
motion and an algorithm that provides a quick overview of symptoms,
tests, imaging, and diagnosis. Additional chapters on posture
deficiencies, venous thrombosis, occlusive arterial disease and
neurovascular compression syndromes, and disturbances of the central
nervous system complete the book.

For each clinical test,
readers will find a step-by-step description of the procedure, followed
by a concise discussion of assessment and possible diagnoses for that
test.

Special Features:

  • Succinct descriptions of initial tests, functional tests, stress tests, and stability tests
  • More than 600 precise line drawings augment the text and reinforce key concepts
  • Helpful
    tips and guidance for the clinical examination, from taking patient
    history to selecting the appropriate tests and further course of action
  • Extensive bibliography of recommended literature for additional reading

The third edition of Clinical Tests for the Musculoskeletal System
is an essential tool for the physical examination and diagnosis of
functional impairments of musculoskeletal structures. This
user-friendly handbook is ideal for orthopaedists, physical medicine
and rehabilitation specialists, physical therapists, osteopathic

Doctors and Demonstrators: How Political Institutions Shape Abortion Law in the United States, Britain, and Canada


By (author): Drew Halfmann

Since Roe v. Wade, abortion has continued to be a divisive political issue in the United States. In contrast, it has remained primarily a medical issue in Britain and Canada despite the countries’ shared heritage. Doctors and Demonstrators looks beyond simplistic cultural or religious explanations to find out why abortion politics and policies differ so dramatically in these otherwise similar countries.
 
Drew Halfmann argues that political institutions are the key. In the United States, federalism, judicial review, and a private health care system contributed to the public definition of abortion as an individual right rather than a medical necessity. Meanwhile, Halfmann explains, the porous structure of American political parties gave pro-choice and pro-life groups the opportunity to move the issue onto the political agenda. A groundbreaking study of the complex legal and political factors behind the evolution of abortion policy, Doctors and Demonstrators will be vital for anyone trying to understand this contentious issue.

Medical Adherence and Aging: Social And Cognitive Perspectives


As the baby boom generation moves toward retirement and health care costs escalate, older adults will be expected to play a more active role in managing their own preventive care and treatment of existing conditions. In this age group, negative health events often occur not because cures for diseases are not available or because proper treatment was not applied, but because patients fail to follow the medical instructions or regimens that maintain their health. Medical complications frequently arise because patients have difficulty understanding and following their providers’ directions, or are unwilling to follow them. In Medical Adherence and Aging: Social and Cognitive Perspectives prominent psychologists and geriatricians examine the research on nonadherence using a cognitive, social, and developmental framework. While they focus particularly on the problems of older adults, the findings are highly relevant to other groups of patients who have cognitive compromise, such as those who have psychiatric or neurological disorders, some HIV patients, and patients who are in pain. addressed as well as the role of motivational and judgmental factors in keeping to a treatment regimen. The contributors also discuss the relationship between technology-based delivery of medical services and adherence. This volume will interest psychologists in a variety of subfields including health, rehabilitative, social, and experimental psychology, as well as geriatric nurses, social workers, and researchers in medical schools.

Developmental Hematopoiesis: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Medicine)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

During the past few decades, technical and conceptual breakthroughs have led to a virtual revolution in developmental biology. In part through cross-species compa- sons and multidisciplinary approaches (combining, for example, classical embry- ogy, genetics, molecular biology, and systems biology), major questions have often been redefined and examined from new angles and with innovative tools. Analyses using such model systems as Drosophila, Xenopus, zebrafish, chick, human, and mouse have underscored the remarkable extent to which molecular and genetic pa- ways are conserved across species and throughout embryonic, fetal, and adult dev- opment. What we learn from the embryo, then, is not only of fundamental interest, but may well have future practical applications in the clinic. A number of excellent volumes, including several in this series (e. g. , Hema- poietic Stem Cell Protocols, Klug and Jordan, eds. , 2002), have surveyed methods used in the study of hematopoiesis?the processes by which the multiple lineages of the blood form from stem and progenitor cells during ontogeny and throughout the entire life of the animal. These collections of protocols have focused largely on the postnatal cells of mouse and human. Our understanding of hematopoietic devel- ment, however, has benefitted enormously from investigations in a variety of org- isms at different stages of ontogeny.

0: Pesticide Protocols (Methods in Biotechnology)


Features: Pesticide Protocols

A comprehensive collection of robust methods for the detection of pesticide compounds or their metabolites useful in food, environmental, and biological monitoring, and in studies of exposure via food, water, air, and the skin or lungs. The readily reproducible methods range from gas and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry detection and other classic detectors, to capillary electrophoresis and immunochemical or radioimmunoassay methods. The authors have focused on extraction and cleanup procedures, in order to develop and optimize more fullyautomated and miniaturized methods, including solid-phase extraction, solid-phase microextraction, microwave-assisted extraction, and on-line tandem liquid chromatography (LC/LC) trace enrichment, among others. The protocols offer step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principles behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
