Essentials of Anesthesia for Infants and Neonates

 Anesthesiology  Comments Off on Essentials of Anesthesia for Infants and Neonates
May 302018
 

by Mary Ellen McCann (Editor), Christine Greco (Editor), Kai Matthes (Editor)

It is estimated that 1.5 million infants undergo surgery and anesthesia in the USA each year. However, there are serious concerns within the pediatric anesthesia community regarding the safety of anaesthesia in infants and children. There is mounting evidence from animal studies that anesthetics in common clinical use are neurotoxic to the developing brain and cause long-term neurobehavioral abnormalities. Essentials of Anesthesia for Infants and Neonates provides a comprehensive guide to the special needs of infants undergoing anesthesia. It focuses on the first year of life, the time when anesthesia mortality and morbidity is highest. Chapters are illustrated in color throughout, and include sections on newborn physiology for anesthetic management, specific procedures, pain management, and topics such as regional anesthesia and sedation. Written by nationally recognized experts, this book will become an invaluable point of reference for any physician interested in pain management in the first year of life.

A comprehensive guide for healthcare providers, focusing on the practical aspects of anesthestic care, Essentials of Anesthesia for Infants and Neonates will become a valuable point of reference for any practicing physician interested in pain management in the first year of life.

Radiation Dose from Multidetector CT, Second Edition

 Radiology  Comments Off on Radiation Dose from Multidetector CT, Second Edition
May 302018
 

Computed tomography (CT) is a powerful technique providing precise and confident diagnoses. The burgeoning use of CT has resulted in an exponential increase in collective radiation dose to the population. Despite investigations supporting the use of lower radiation doses, surveys highlight the lack of proper understanding of CT parameters that affect radiation dose. Dynamic advances in CT technology also make it important to explain the latest dose-saving strategies in an easy-to-comprehend manner.
This book aims to review all aspects of the radiation dose from CT and to provide simple rules and tricks for radiologists and radiographers that will assist in the appropriate use of CT technique. The second edition includes a number of new chapters on the most up-to-date strategies and technologies for radiation dose reduction while updating the outstanding contents of the first edition. Vendor perspectives are included, and an online image gallery will also be available to readers.

Review
REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “The text is a worthwhile reference for those in the beginning stages of their career, such as medical students rotating on-service seeing otolaryngology patients and procedures for the first time. Allied health professionals serving otolaryngology patients may use it as a quick reference during clinics. It is especially useful to trained otolaryngologists seeking to rapidly review an organized handheld resource for board examination review. . . .Overall, this is a very nice reference. I would recommend this as a part of every training otolaryngologist’s library, designating it as especially useful for a comprehensive yet succinct board review.” –Kristen Hurst, University of Iowa, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology (2015)

REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “I have rarely learnt so much, in seconds of thumbing through a textbook, as I did reading about central sleep apnoea…[It] is ideal for fast access reference and revision on the flight to the exit exams! In practice I have opened this many times, picking subjects at random and found the writing style reader friendly throughout.” –Liam M. Flood, FRCS, FRCSI, James Cook University Hospital, Journal of Laryngology & Otology (2013)

Hormone Therapy and Castration Resistance of Prostate Cancer

 Oncology  Comments Off on Hormone Therapy and Castration Resistance of Prostate Cancer
May 292018
 

This comprehensive reference expounds the current state of hormone therapy and castration resistance of prostate cancer (PCa). Previously, the incidence of PCa in Asian countries was relatively low, but it has been increasing dramatically in recent years. Although most of the new cases are diagnosed in early stages, a significant proportion of patients receive hormone therapy for metastatic disease or for relapse after local treatment. Thus the situation has gradually changed toward earlier and longer use of hormone therapy. The malignancy finally forms castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) despite the lack of testicular androgen. With advances in understanding of the molecular basis of hormone dependence and CRPC, many new androgen receptor-targeted agents have emerged.
