Clinician’s Guide to Mycosis Fungoides

By (author): Pooya Khan Mohammad Beigi

Complete with dozens of color clinical photos to aid readers in diagnosis and treatment, this book includes TNM staging, description of the histopathology, and a step-by-step guide through the diagnosis of the disease. It is the most common form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, generally affecting the skin, though sometimes progressing internally over time. However, there is very little comprehensive information on this subject for dermatologists, dermatopathologists, and oncologists seeking deeper insight into this lymphoma in one all-inclusive text. Clinician’s Guide to Mycosis Fungoides meets this need, covering the history, categories of disorder, molecular analysis, etiology, epidemiology, effect on body systems, disorder symptoms, and treatment. Additionally, the various recommended treatments of mycosis fungoides are explained, using clinical research and case studies as guidance in part stemming from the author’s extensive research on the topic.

Medical and Biomedical Applications of Shock Waves (Shock Wave and High Pressure Phenomena)

By (author): Achim M. Loske

This book provides current, comprehensive, and clear explanations of the physics behind medical and biomedical applications of shock waves. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is one of the greatest medical advances of our time, and its techniques and clinical devices are continuously evolving. Further research continues to improve the understanding of calculi fragmentation and tissue-damaging mechanisms. Shock waves are also used in orthopedics and traumatology. Possible applications in oncology, cardiology, dentistry, gene therapy, cell transfection, transformation of fungi and bacteria, as well as the inactivation of microorganisms are promising approaches for clinical treatment, industrial applications and research.

Medical and Biomedical Applications of Shock Waves is useful as a guide for students, technicians and researchers working in universities and laboratories. Chemists, biologists, physicians and veterinarians, involved in research or clinical practice will find useful advice, but also engineers and physicists may benefit from the overview of current research endeavors and future directions. Furthermore, it may also serve to direct manufacturers towards the design of more efficient and safer clinical, industrial and laboratory equipment.

A Case Approach to Perioperative Drug-Drug Interactions

The occurrence of deleterious or even fatal drug-drug interactions (DDIs) in the perioperative period is no longer a theoretical concern but a harrowing reality. A Case Approach to Perioperative Drug-Drug Interactions addresses the complex realm of pharmacokinetic drug interactions in an easy-to-read volume that functions as both a comprehensive clinical reference and a casebook.  The book presents a summary of the core concepts of drug interactions; an organized, annotated presentation of the drug interactions most relevant to the perioperative clinician; and approximately 200 case scenarios that highlight specific drug interactions. This book fills a real void in the clinical literature and is invaluable to anesthesiologists and surgeons, as well as trainees  in both specialties; intensive care staff, including physicians, physician’s assistants, and nurses; and nurse practitioners who staff preoperative evaluation clinics.

Vulvar Pain: From Childhood to Old Age

By (author): Alessandra Graziottin, Filippo Murina

This book offers detailed coverage of all aspects of vulvar pain in age groups from children to the elderly, with a particular focus on factors that precipitate or maintain the pain. Guidance is provided on diagnosis and treatment, and careful consideration is given to special circumstances associated with vulvar pain, including childbirth, recurrent cystitis, female genital mutilation, medical comorbidities, and sexual comorbidities in both partners. Vulvar pain of neurogenic and iatrogenic origin is also fully discussed. Two innovative chapters present case reports highly relevant to clinical practice and address outstanding issues, including controversies and difficulties in terminology, initial triggers, the role of stress, psychogenic causes, and misuse and abuse. The book is exceptional in covering vulvar pain throughout the human life span and in a wide range of situations, and it will be of value to all who are involved in management of the condition.

Auriculotherapy (Complementary Medicine (Thieme Paperback))

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Raphael Nogier

The continuation of Paul Nogier’s findings

Auriculotherapy is based on
proven correspondences between locations on the external ear and the internal
organs and systems of the body. The ear acts like an input/output terminal in
direct contact with the central nervous system. Information on viscerosomatic
states can be accessed via visual clues, skin electro-conductivity, and pressure
sensitivity at specific points.

The first part of Raphael Nogier’s
Auriculotherapy shows how acupuncture needles are used in sophisticated and
powerful therapeutic interventions.

The second part introduces the principles
and practice of auriculomedicine, a true frequency medicine that evolved from
Dr. Paul Nogier’s auriculotherapy, his discovery of the VAS (Vascular Autonomic
Signal) in the pulse and his consequent observations of the diagnostic and
therapeutic properties of radiant light frequencies on the skin.

The material
presented here builds on and updates the work of the author’s father, Dr. Paul
Nogier, who scientifically explored and charted the auricular microsystems in
the 1950s.

A serviceable, contemporary work for students of acupuncture as well
as practitioners, offering clear and practical information to be applied
directly for the benefit of patients.
