This unique resource is designed to be a practical, user-friendly guide for pediatricians, primary care providers, and all healthcare providers who work with children with autism spectrum disorder. Diagnosing and Caring for the Child with Autism Spectrum Disorder offers state-of-the art instruction to clinicians on how to recognize, diagnose and assist children with autism spectrum disorders, from early in life to transition to adulthood. This book will also delve into how to support pediatric patients by working with families, and discuss how to best interact with and support these families.

The book opens with a comprehensive introduction of ASD and obstacles to diagnosis and common myths. Section Two is devoted to the early recognition of atypical development and reviews the steps in diagnosing autism, including the evaluation, the diagnostic visit, the developmental exam, and the discussion of findings with parents. Section Three covers treatment and interventions for the autism spectrum and includes a discussion on alternative therapies and how to direct parents toward evidence-based or plausible treatments. Section Four and Five addresses special topics that are relevant to the PCP’s or pediatrician’s long-term relationship with families, including chapters on anxiety, parents, challenging behaviors and common scenarios that occur across childhood for those who have ASD. Later chapters delve more deeply into providing informed, sensitive care for patients with intersecting identities, and discusses how gender identity and cultural perspective and attitudes can impact the pediatric patient with ASD.

Engaging, and written in a conversational style, Diagnosing and Caring for the Child with Autism Spectrum Disorder will be an ideal resource for the pediatrician, primary care provider, and all healthcare providers working with children with ASD, providing concrete, step-by-step methods that readers can incorporate into their own practice.

Endobronchial Ultrasound: An Atlas and Practical Guide

 Radiology  Comments Off on Endobronchial Ultrasound: An Atlas and Practical Guide
Mar 182020
 

It has been 25 years since the first reports on endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) began to appear in the medical literature. The technology involves placing an ultrasound transducer at the tip of an endoscope, which allows for ultrasound imaging to be performed from within the gastrointestinal (GI) lumen. It became quickly apparent that for purposes of thoracic applications and cancer staging that smaller and dedicated bronchoscopes for ultrasound imaging and procedure guidance was required and subsequently were developed. Progress in instrumentation design and clinical research continue to expand the potential utility of this still relatively new method.Current indications for EBUS and EUS in oncology can be divided into several main categories: cancer staging; tumor diagnosis and guidance of therapeutic interventions . All the authors of Endobronchial Ultrasound: An Atlas and Practical Guide have helped to establish the field, are well published and have taught multiple courses in bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound for many years, helping to disseminate the prerequisite knowledge in order to properly apply the technology for patients.. Among the topics these experts discuss are: basic principles of TBNA – staging principles in lung cancer – technique and anatomy of radial ultrasound – ultrasound for interventional procedures – ultrasound for peripheral lesions – EBUS TBNA bronchoscopy – ultrasound as a therapeutic instrumentEndobronchial ultrasound has received explosive attention amongst pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons and gastroenterologists over the past few years and technical modifications continue to lead to the potential for ubiquitious use
