Hemodiafiltration: Theory, Technology and Clinical Practice

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Hemodiafiltration: Theory, Technology and Clinical Practice
Oct 222018
 

This book gives a complete description of online hemodiafiltration, in five sections. It is unique in the systematic and complete way in which hemodiafiltration is described. Each chapter is completed by a point-to-point summary of essential information, in a separate text box. Part of the book is dedicated to the theoretical background of convective clearance. In this part, safety issues and quality control is reviewed (especially on the quality of water for dialysis and substitution fluid), as well as equipment (both dialyzers and machines) with which this treatment can be performed. As recently the results of several randomized controlled trials were available, the effect of hemodiafiltration on hard clinical end points (mortality and morbidity) is discussed in detail. This has not been done before, as the most recent book/journal on hemodiafiltration was published in 2011, before the results of the 3 randomized controlled trials were published. Furthermore, the methodological quality of the trials is discussed by an expert, in order to help the readers in their judgment of the trials Part of the book concentrates on the effect of the treatment on several biomarkers and uremic toxins. Several clinically relevant issues is discussed separately, such as the prescription of anticoagulation during the treatment, drug prescription and clearance for patients treated with hemodiafiltration, and hemodynamic stability. Finally, a practical guide on how to perform the treatment is provided. In this unique section, seemingly simple but important details of hemodiafiltration-treatment is discussed, such as the importance of needle size for blood flow rates, the difference between filtration fraction and substitution ratio, the different targets that can be set and how to reach them. As most literature is mainly focused on theoretical issues, this unique feature really will help the field to perform hemodiafiltration, and answer practical questions

The Greenberg Rapid Review: A Companion to the 8th Edition

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on The Greenberg Rapid Review: A Companion to the 8th Edition
Oct 202018
 

Written by an esteemed educator and founder of the renowned Chicago Review Course in Neurological Surgery™, this updated review reflects substantive content additions to the 8th edition. The two prior editions of the Rapid Review were must-have companions that fully leveraged the vast knowledge contained within Greenberg’s legendary tome.

Through repetition and spot-on questions, this book brings clarity to a specialty whose sheer depth and breadth presents comprehension and retention challenges. This book helps readers determine if they are retaining key data and information, thereby providing a robust self-assessment study tool for ABNS certification.

The 7th companion generated glowing reviews, such as: “A wonderful example of how to turn the classic Greenberg text into a study guide rather than an encyclopedic reference to a young neurosurgeon” -AANS Young Neurosurgeons News

Key Highlights:

Question formats include fill in the blank, open-ended questions, true/false, matching, and identification of various elements in diagrams/figures
Mnemonic devices, helpful hints, clinical pearls, and study charts aid in comprehension and long-term retention
Greenberg chapter headings are used (e.g. 4.2.3), thereby providing clear-cut Handbook references
This book is designed to help neurosurgical residents prepare for the ABNS primary examination and/or rounds. It will enable practicing neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, and neuropathologists to develop a storehouse of knowledge required to efficaciously examine, analyze, diagnose, and treat neurosurgical patients.

Aging and Aging-Related Diseases: Mechanisms and Interventions

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Aging and Aging-Related Diseases: Mechanisms and Interventions
Oct 202018
 

This book provides an overview of recent advances in the study of aging and aging related diseases, discussing the topics at individual, organ, tissue, cell, and molecular levels. It also presents studies on the biomarkers of aging and anti-aging interventions.
Aging has been becoming a global health problem. However it was not possible to determine aging as we usually diagnose a disease because there are few biomarkers for age estimation. Since ancient times, people have been seeking anti-aging substances and methods for achieving immortality, while the scientific study of aging has only existed for 100 years. This book appeals to researchers both in institutes and in pharmaceutical companies interested in further studies in this field.

My Imaginary Illness: A Journey into Uncertainty and Prejudice in Medical Diagnosis

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on My Imaginary Illness: A Journey into Uncertainty and Prejudice in Medical Diagnosis
Oct 182018
 

At age twenty-one, Chloë Atkins began suffering from a mysterious illness, the symptoms of which rapidly worsened. Paralyzed for months at a time, she frequently required intubation and life support. She eventually became quadriplegic, dependent both on a wheelchair and on health professionals who refused to believe there was anything physically wrong with her. When test after test returned inconclusive results, Atkins’s doctors pronounced her symptoms psychosomatic. Atkins was told not only that she was going to die but also that this was her own fault; they concluded she was so emotionally deranged that she was willing her own death.

My Imaginary Illness is the compelling story of Atkins’s decades-long battle with a disease deemed imaginary, her frustration with a succession of doctors and diagnoses, her immersion in the world of psychotherapy, and her excruciating physical and emotional journey back to wellness. As both a political theorist and patient, Atkins provides a narrative critique of contemporary medicine and its problematic handling of uncertainty and of symptoms that are not easily diagnosed or known. She convincingly illustrates that medicine’s belief in evidence-based practice does not mean that individual doctors are capable of objectivity, nor that the presence of biomedical ethics invokes ethical practices in hospitals and clinics.

A foreword by Bonnie Blair O’Connor, who teaches medical students how to listen to patients, and a clinical commentary by Dr. Brian David Hodges, a professor of psychiatry, enrich the book’s narrative with practical guidance for medical practitioners and patients alike.

Basic Health Care Series

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. When used without further specification, “blood pressure” usually refers to the arterial pressure in the systemic circulation. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic (maximum during one heart beat) pressure over diastolic (minimum in between two heart beats) pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg), above the surrounding atmospheric pressure (considered to be zero for convenience). High blood pressure is defined as a systolic pressure at rest that averages 140 mm Hg or more, a diastolic pressure at rest that averages 90 mm Hg or more, or both. However, the higher the blood pressure, the greater the risk of complications–even within the normal blood pressure range–so these limits are somewhat arbitrary. In most young people with high blood pressure, both systolic and diastolic pressures are high. In contrast, many older people with high blood pressure have high systolic pressure (140 mm Hg or more) with normal or low diastolic pressure (less than 90 mm Hg). This disorder is called isolated systolic hypertension. This book serves as a reference to many of the viable alternative approaches available today. Murray, a brilliant scientific mind, has put together a wonderful compilation of natural and simple alternatives to traditional medicines that serve as a practical guide in reducing the risk of heart attacks and high blood pressure
