Crises in Childbirth – Why Mothers Survive: A Systems-Based Competencies Approach

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Crises in Childbirth – Why Mothers Survive: A Systems-Based Competencies Approach
Jul 232018
 

This work includes Foreword by Phillip J S Steer, Professor of Obstetrics, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London. It includes Introduction by Gwyneth Lewis, National Clinical Lead for Maternal Health and Maternity Services, Department of Health, England and Director of the UK Confidential Enquiries into Maternal Deaths. ‘The reductions in maternal mortality over the last half century are an eloquent testimony to the value of the technical expertise in life support that anaesthetists bring to the management of labour complications. Many direct causes of maternal death have been substantially reduced as a result of anaesthetic innovations ranging from advances in regional anaesthesia to the panoply of techniques used in intensive care. This book is essential reading.’ – Phillip J Steer, in his Foreword. Offering a unique insight into real cases, this book covers the physiology, pharmacology and organisational factors involved in previous maternal deaths, highlighting key lessons to be learnt. This practical guide provides an ideal introduction for new anaesthetists and up-to-date information for senior practitioners, particularly those who cover labour wards. It is also invaluable for anaesthetic nurses, obstetricians and midwives. ‘For more than 50 years the Confidential Enquiries into Maternal Deaths in the UK have collected together invaluable information about why mothers die in pregnancy and childbirth. For the first time ever, this unique book collects together all the valuable lessons into one volume. Experts in their fields provide a physiological, pharmacological, and evidence based commentary on the events of each death. The overall result pays homage to the value of collecting together lessons from the past, and we hope will help people avoid repetition of these situations in the future.’ – Daryl Dob, Anita Holdcroft and Griselda Cooper, in the Preface.

Trouble Talking: The Realities of Communication, Language, and Speech Disorders

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Trouble Talking: The Realities of Communication, Language, and Speech Disorders
Jul 232018
 

The ability to speak is an important part of human interaction. In this book, a glimpse into the lived realities of 37 adults and 3 children with communication disorders whose humanism is somewhat compromised by their speech, language, or voice disorders is offered in humorous and heartbreaking detail. The patient’s struggle to communicate is often matched by their listeners, who are struggling to understand.

Stories are presented of patients treated in medical settings for such problems as aphasia, dementia, Parkinson’s disease (PD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other CNS diseases, apraxia, and head trauma. Other stories look at people who were treated in university clinics for such disorders as cerebral palsy and stuttering. The last few stories look at speech/voice treatment for a transgender woman, the loss of voice in a young man in a state penitentiary, and finally a humorous story of a pilot with left hemiplegia flying the author.

Seasoned specialist Daniel Boone does not offer therapy suggestions for either the SLP or the patient’s family or friends to try. Rather, for anyone with a communication disorder, he strongly recommends that such patients should seek the guidance and therapy of an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist (SLP). The SLP determines what to do in therapy and practice.

The stories illustrate the struggles of those who cannot always make their listeners understand. They may only be able to repeat the same phrase over and over. They may not be able to articulate words clearly enough to be understood. They may give bizarre, confusing answers to everyday questions. Taken together, they also illustrate the difficulties listeners, those who wish to understand, have in trying to make heads or tails of the intended communication. Ultimately, this work provides a sensitive look at the various disorders people have, their attempts to overcome them, the treatments that might be available, and the actions listeners can take in making communication easier and more productive.

Psychology in Historical Context

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Psychology in Historical Context
Jul 222018
 

Psychology, the study of mind and behaviour, has developed as a unique discipline in its brief history. Whether as it currently takes place, or how it has been conducted over the past 140 years or so since it became recognized as a separate field of study, there has been constant debate on its identity as a science.

Psychology in Historical Context: Theories and Debates examines this debate by tracing the emergence of Psychology from parent disciplines, such as philosophy and physiology, and analyzes key topics such as:

the nature of science, itself a much misunderstood human activity often equated with natural science;
the nature of the scientific method, and the relationship between data gathering and generalization;
the nature of certainty and objectivity, and their relevance to understanding the kind of scientific discipline Psychology is today.

This engaging overview, written by renowned author Richard Gross, is an accessible account of the main conceptual themes and historical developments. Covering the core fields of individual differences, cognitive, social, and developmental psychology, as well as evolutionary and biopsychology, it will enable readers to understand how key ideas and theories have had impacts across a range of topics. This is the only concise textbook to give students a thorough grounding in the major conceptual ideas within the field, as well as the key figures whose ideas have helped to shape it.

Review
‘Chapter by chapter Richard Gross illustrates and illuminates the foundations of contemporary psychology – the blind alleys, the insights, and the political and cultural biases that have given rise to where we are today in mainstream academic study.’ – Paul Gardner, School of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of St. Andrews, UK.

About the Author
Richard Gross has been writing Psychology texts for both undergraduate and A-level students for 30 years. He has a particular interest in the philosophical aspects of Psychology, including the nature of the discipline, the free will/determinism debate, and the defining features of personhood.

Health Organizations, Second Edition

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Health Organizations, Second Edition
Jul 212018
 

Organizations are complex human systems that have evolved over time and continue to do so in an increasingly globalized, information enriched, technology intensive era such as the 21st century. This is especially so following the Affordable Care Act legislation and regulations in the U.S. The new Second Edition of Health Organizations: Theory, Behavior, and Development addresses these changes by integrating new content throughout every chapter and topic area.

Health organizations are comprised of highly credentialed professionals who function under considerable scrutiny within many prescribed guidelines. The challenge of managing in this environment is great with the basis of any level of effectiveness coming from an understanding of individual, group, and organization behavior. Additionally, health organizations are not static, tasking leaders to facilitate and manage the change that is inevitable in modern organizations. This book will help the student and practitioner put to use theories of organization and knowledge of organization behavior in ways that foster change in productive and sustainable ways resulting in better outcomes. Students will learn systematic planned approaches for organization development and team building and by examining power, influence, conflict, motivation, and leadership in the context of health service delivery.

The overall framework of the Second Edition remains the same as the first book with the following three sections:
• Part I – Organization Theory Past and Present
• Part II – Organization Dynamics and Human Behavior
• Part III – Organization Development and Sustainability

The Second Edition introduces new elements including: chapter overviews; film learning exercises; key terms; case studies; chapter discussion questions; in-class exercises; online learning activities; key interviews with leaders and managers; appendix; study guide; and other supporting ancillaries.

Jul 182018
 

This atlas provides a concise overview of the principle of fat grafting and its clinical applications to treat aging in the central areas of the face in a minimally invasive manner. The authors start with a short description of the anatomical basis of facial aging and by presenting current facial rejuvenation techniques. Here the emphasis is on the process of harvesting and preparing macro-, micro-, intradermal and nano-fat for injection. Thanks to the book’s numerous illustrations and short descriptions, readers will find valuable information on where and how to inject the fat combined with the authors’ individual techniques and refinements. Aging is a major issue in today’s society. Facial rejuvenation procedures seek to enhance the final outcome and durability of surgery and to minimize drawbacks. The current trend is to use less invasive methods requiring fewer incisions, which produce more natural-looking results. This atlas shows the authors’ personal techniques to help achieve that goal.

Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The Definitive Manual

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The Definitive Manual
Jul 172018
 
This manual is designed to serve as the standard for the management of patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) by means of modern techniques. All aspects are covered, from pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and diagnosis through to initial management, operative strategies, postoperative complications, outcomes and quality of life issues. The book is based on the experience gained at a leading U.S. institution (Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington) that treats up to 40 patients with ruptured AAA annually and is highly respected for its expertise in this medical emergency. The team at Harborview Medical Center has recently shown that the implementation of a structured protocol for the management of ruptured AAA, with emphasis on an “endovascular-first” strategy, dramatically reduces mortality and complications. This has led to a sea change in the way in which patients are managed. There is an increasing hunger for information on these codified protocols and Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The Definitive Manual will be invaluable for both surgeons and critical care physicians.

Atlas of Non-Gynecologic Cytology

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Atlas of Non-Gynecologic Cytology
Jul 162018
 

Cytology is a unique subspecialty in anatomic pathology, and plays a critical role in the diagnosis of a variety of benign and malignant lesions by using minimally invasive procedures, such as fine needle aspiration, brushing, washing and lavage. Cytology not only provides an accurate diagnosis of the lesion based on the cytomorphological evaluation at cellular level, but also provides material for molecular characterization of a tumor for targeted therapy. In the era of personalized medicine, cytology has continued to grow and evolve as an important diagnostic tool. For example, some types of procedures are routinely used, diagnostic criteria have become more refined, and certain terminology has been changed based on current WHO classifications. Therefore, it is necessary to update our knowledge and terminology in cytology.
In this volume, we have retained the quality and the clarity of the series, and like the other volumes, this volume aims to be concise and comprehensive yet clinically relevant to daily practice. Although this volume is written by multiple authors, all chapters follow a similar format: brief introduction of the specific organ/system (including types of specimens and techniques to obtain samples), description of normal findings, and a practice approach to diagnose benign and malignant lesions. In each chapter, the key cytomorphological feature and main differential diagnoses of the lesion are summarized in a concise table. Images in each chapter are instructive and clearly represent findings. Where necessary, we have also illustrated the important ancillary tests, such as flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry and molecular analysis, which are crucial for an accurate diagnosis and targeted therapy. The updated knowledge, including key cytomorphological features, current terminology and molecular diagnostic tests, is the highlight of this volume.
