Pediatric Homicide: Medical Investigation


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Pediatric homicide investigations are clouded by a number of factors, not the least of which is a lack of straightforward resources. The cause of death in infants and children is often subtle and difficult to establish. Designed for quick access, Pediatric Homicide: Medical Investigation provides an invaluable resource for medical examiners, police, child abuse investigators, and attorneys charged with either making or ruling out the diagnosis of homicide.

Focusing on forensic pathology aspects, this book covers the causes of death which are most difficult to determine, including:

  • head injury
  • asphyxiation
  • drowning
  • abdominal trauma
  • poisoning
  • starvation and dehydration

With contributions by a team of expert pathologists, the book provides a scientific foundation for diagnosing homicide, discusses methods to determine the timing of injuries and death, and reviews the legal requirements for presenting evidence in court. More than 100 photographs enhance the text and clarify the source of injury in these difficult cases.

Intra-Abdominal Hypertension (Core Critical Care)


By (author): Manu Malbrain, Jan De Waele

Despite increasing interest in intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) as causes of significant morbidity and mortality among the critically ill, unanswered questions cloud the understanding of the pathophysiology of these conditions: • Are IAH and ACS synonymous? • What are the ideal methods of measuring and lowering intra-abdominal pressure (IAP)? • When should we think of IAH? • Can IAH be prevented? • What level of IAP requires abdominal decompression? Written by two experts in critical care and IAP, Intra-Abdominal Hypertension is a distillation of the current literature and furthers the understanding of these complex critical conditions. Using a step-by-step approach and illustrative figures, this clinical handbook presents a concise overview of consensus definitions, measurement methods, organ assessment and treatment options. Intra-Abdominal Hypertension is essential reading for all members of the intensive care multidisciplinary team, including experienced and junior physicians, anesthetists and nurses.

Manual of Singing Voice Rehabilitation: A Practical Approach to Vocal Health and Wellness


By (author): Leda Scearce

Manual of Singing Voice Rehabilitation: A Practical Approach to Vocal Health and Wellness provides speech-language pathologists and singing teachers with the tools to lay the foundation for working with singers who have voice injuries. Singing voice rehabilitation is a hybrid profession that represents a very specific amalgam of voice pedagogy, voice pathology, and voice science. Becoming a singing voice rehabilitation specialist requires in-depth training and thorough preparation across these fields.
This text presents a conceptual and practical basis for interacting with singers in an effective and supportive way, identifying factors to address, structuring singing voice rehabilitation sessions, and ensuring that singers are getting adequate exercise while allowing their injuries to heal, as well as resources and materials to provide to singers to optimize the outcome of their rehabilitation.
Each chapter exposes readers to important concepts of singing voice rehabilitation and the elements that need to be addressed in the singing voice rehabilitation process, which include medical factors, emotional factors, vocal hygiene, vocal pacing, and vocal coordination and conditioning. This text contains information for developing exercises and interventions to target specific vocal problems and guidance in customizing vocal exercises based on injury, singing style, skill level, professional level, and the particular vocal demands of each singer.
Key features include:

  • Rehabilitation and therapy exercises
  • Clinical case studies to illustrate real-life examples and practical application
  • Downloadable educational handouts available on a PluralPlus companion website

While the intended audience for this book is speech-language pathologists and teachers of singing who are accomplished performers, experienced pedagogues, and clinically and scientifically well-informed, there is information herein that will be of value to all singers, physicians interested in learning more about the behavioral side of singing voice rehabilitation, nonsinging speech-language pathologists, or anyone seeking knowledge about singing health, including music educators, music therapists, conductors, vocal coaches, worship leaders, or music directors.

Breast Cancer Surgery and Reconstruction: What’s Right For You


Features: Rowman Littlefield Pub Inc
By (author): Patricia Anstett

More than 100,000 American women undergo mastectomy and breast reconstruction every year because of breast cancer. Thousands more are having double mastectomies to prevent it. So much has been written about breast cancer, and so much overlooks the reality of reconstruction when a woman has a mastectomy and opts for this process. It is difficult, painful, and traumatizing at times. Most women do not emerge with a new set of breasts and nipples in a single operation. Breast reconstruction usually takes months and can take years to finish. Some women never do, living without nipples or with imperfect results. Others opt not to have reconstruction at all. Still others struggle with one of the biggest women’s health questions today: lumpectomy and radiation or mastectomy?

Breast Cancer Surgery and Reconstruction offers a glimpse into the big picture of the various stages and types of breast reconstruction using stories and photos of real women. It offers a true picture of what breast reconstruction entails, and offers hope to those facing it. This is a book to help women with a variety of issues surrounding their choices, with powerful insights from women who have been there.
