Brief Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Cancer Patients: Re-Visioning the CBT Paradigm

By (author): Scott Temple

Brief Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Cancer Patients is a practical, clinical guide that allows for the integration of techniques from multiple newer CBT models, organized around a clear conceptual foundation and case conceptualization. The book targets those cognitive, emotional, and behavioral processes that research suggests are instrumental in the maintenance of human psychological suffering. Author Scott Temple also draws on newer models that build on strengths and resilience and brings clinical work to life through vivid case examples, worksheets, and case conceptualization forms. Detailed vignettes show clinicians how to create a case conceptualization as a guide to treatment, as well as how to integrate Beckian and newer CBT techniques.

Hypothermia, Frostbite, and Other Cold Injuries: Prevention, Survival, Rescue, and Treatment

By (author): Gordon Giesbrecht Ph.D., James A. Wilkerson M.D.

* A vital resource for search and rescue professionals and physicians as well as outdoor enthusiasts

* Includes new chapters to cover cold injuries and strategies for survival that weren’t in the previous edition

Hikers, skiers, climbers, hunters, fishermen, bicyclists, and lost children — all are potentially at risk of hypothermia or other cold injuries including frostbite and trenchfoot. Cold water immersion is also a major cause of death in boating accidents. Yet as shown in anecdotes from the updated second edition of Hypothermia, Frostbite, and Other Cold Injuries, many people have died unnecessarily, succumbing to cold effects long before hypothermia sets in.

This compact, comprehensive book covers the causes and effects of hypothermia and other cold injuries, and tells how to prevent, recognize, and treat them. Included is coverage of how the body loses heat and the latest rewarming techniques such as thermal wraps. This edition has added chapters on cold water drowning and covers additional cold injuries from Raynaud’s phenomenon to cold-induced asthma. You’ll also find strategies for cold-weather survival, plus safe practices for working on the ice and ice water escape and rescue techniques.

Fertility Preservation: Emerging Technologies and Clinical Applications

Features: Fertility Preservation Emerging Technologies and Clinical Applications

A growing majority of women in the western hemisphere have been delaying initiation of childbearing to later in life. Consequently, more women in their late 30s to early 40s are attempting to get pregnant for the first time than ever before. Since the incidence of most cancers increases with age, delayed childbearing results in more female cancer survivors interested in fertility preservation.

In this book, the editors provide strategies for fertility preservation in women and men who require gonadotoxic treatment. In addition, epidemiologic, ethical, medico-legal, psychologic, and social aspects of fertility preservation are discussed. Using a format that combines concise scientific background with practical methodological information and easy-to-grasp algorithms, the chapters all conform to a uniform structure, including a brief abstract, keyword glossary, step by step protocol of laboratory procedures, key issues in commentary and a list of references. The result is a unique, practical reference guide for reproductive endocrinologists, urologists, embryologists, reproductive scientists, and oncologists.

Neonatology: A Practical Approach to Neonatal Diseases

This new textbook wants to offer to neonatologists and pediatricians a modern and complete view of the various problems and aspects of neonatology, currently one of the most complex and advanced fields of pediatrics.

The first chapters will be dedicated to the epidemiology of neonatal mortality and morbidity and to the conditions responsible for neonatal risk. A section will be devoted to organizational problems of hospitals and home services for efficient modern neonatal and infant care.

Particular attention will be paid to neonatal care, medico-legal questions, examination of newborns and current availability of laboratory facilities and instrumentation for identification of perinatal abnormalities. Neonatal nutritional problems will also be examined, outlining current knowledge of the needs of sick and healthy babies. Conditions jeopardizing fetal health such as diabetes, maternal drug abuse and smoking will be discussed. New advances in neonatal pharmacology will be extensively examined.

Various diseases of the neonate involving lungs, heart, gastrointestinal tract, blood, immune system, endocrine system and kidneys will be also  expounded in special chapters. Fetal and neonatal infections will be extensively discussed. Fetal and neonatal neurological abnormalities will be discussed by highly specialized authors. There will be chapters on neonatal ophthalmology, dermatology and orthopedics.

Each chapter has beeb written by  a well recognized international expert in his or her field. As the opinion leader in their field, the Author is responsible for giving the most up-to-date information in terms of what is known, what is still being researched, and what has become evidence based medicine. Underlying causes and mechanisms of neonatal diseases will be presented in an immediate form. The use of summaries, tables, and accurately selected guidelines or recommendations that will accompany the text will supply quick references and instant solutions to the concerned neonatologists during their daily practice.

Foundations of Ophthalmology: Great Insights that Established the Discipline

There have been books over the years discussing the history of ophthalmology, but none that focus directly on just the most critical thinkers whose insights provided the foundation for the discipline. These men and women advanced knowledge about vision, diagnosis, disease mechanisms, and therapy through innovative thinking and perseverance against old ideas. Their stories are intriguing at a personal level and for showing the complexity of advancing medical science and, therefore, should be required reading for anyone practicing ophthalmology.  

Foundations of Ophthalmology includes giants such as Young (the nature of color and light), Braille (a practical reading system for the blind), Helmholtz (development of the ophthalmoscope), von Graefe (defining glaucoma), Curie (discovery of radiation and the basis of radiation therapy), Gonin (demonstration how to cure retinal detachment), Ridley (serendipity that led to intraocular lenses), and Kelman (development of phacoemulsification that revolutionized cataract surgery).
