Bipolar disorder is the most complex psychiatric disorder with different types of mood episodes, subtypes, varied course, and significant co-morbidity. Not surprisingly, this complexity poses unique challenges to clinicians for optimal management of those with bipolar disorder.

There has been an explosion of research into the causes and treatment of this condition over the past two decades. It is a daunting task for a practising clinician to make sense of this research and to remain up to date with progress in the understanding of the neurobiology and treatment of bipolar disorder. This book synthesizes and translates the vast array of research knowledge into information that is clinically relevant and meaningful for a clinician.

The book provides a comprehensive, yet focused, reference work on bipolar disorder for both trainees and practising psychiatrists. The two editors are leaders in the field who have published extensively on bipolar disorder. They have assembled a team of experts from around the world: in many instances, chapters are co-authored by people from different continents, bringing a truly international perspective to this important topic. The book covers the basic science of the pathology underlying bipolar disorder but addresses the clinical aspects of the disease throughout.

The book comprises four sections:

Descriptive Aspects—issues ranging from how the concept of bipolar disorder has evolved over the years to new information about neurocognitive impairment, creativity and economic productivity, and to discussion of the deliberations of the DSM-V committee on changes in diagnostic categories and criteria.

Biology—the contribution of genes to this disorder, changes in circadian rhythms, what we know about brain changes and the role of oxidative stress.

Biological Treatment and Psychosocial Treatment— all the latest information about pharmacological and psychological treatments and the optimal management of this condition.

If you want to provide state-of-the-art care to your bipolar patients, be sure to consult this authoritative reference.

The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex and the Brain: The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex and the Brain: The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love
May 162019
 

Who do we love? Who loves us? And why? Is love really a mystery, or can neuroscience offer some answers to these age-old questions?In her third enthralling book about the brain, Judith Horstman takes us on a lively tour of our most important sex and love organ and the whole smorgasbord of our many kinds of love-from the bonding of parent and child to the passion of erotic love, the affectionate love of companionship, the role of animals in our lives, and the love of God.Drawing on the latest neuroscience, she explores why and how we are born to love-how we’re hardwired to crave the companionship of others, and how very badly things can go without love. Among the findings: parental love makes our brain bigger, sex and orgasm make it healthier, social isolation makes it miserable-and although the craving for romantic love can be described as an addiction, friendship may actually be the most important loving relationship of your life.Based on recent studies and articles culled from the prestigious Scientific American and Scientific American Mind magazines, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex, and the Brain offers a fascinating look at how the brain controls our loving relationships, most intimate moments, and our deep and basic need for connection.

What Nurses Know… Gluten-Free Lifestyle

 Nursing  Comments Off on What Nurses Know… Gluten-Free Lifestyle
May 162019
 

Celiac disease and gluten intolerance are sensitivities to the gluten in wheat. People with celiac disease have a genetic predisposition, causing the proteins in wheat, barley and rye to create an inflammatory process in the small intestine. For a person with celiac disease, it is absolutely mandatory to maintain a strict diet for life. Currently there is no other treatment. The gluten-free lifestyle may also reduces the risk of many other diseases, including cancer, caused by the inflammatory process. “What Nurses Know…Gluten-Free Living” provides medical-based advice with a common sense leaning that people expect from nurses. The book explains the differences between celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten allergy. Tips and suggestions are provided for setting up a gluten-free kitchen, what to watch for in medications, how to safely dine out and travel. The book includes a One Week Simple Healing Meal Plan to introduce how to eat gluten free and be healthy. Written in a user-friendly style, it will be easy for people to access the information they want and need without dealing with complex data or details. Nurses hold a critical role in modern health care that goes beyond their day-to-day duties. They share more information with patients than any other provider group, and are alongside patients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, offering understanding of complex health issues, holistic approaches to ailments, and advice for the patient that extends to the family. Nurses themselves are a powerful tool in the healing process. “What Nurses Know” gives down-to-earth information, addresses consumers as equal partners in their care, and explains clearly what readers need to know and wants to know to understand their condition and move forward with their lives.
