Jun 302020

Core Topics in Endocrinology in Anesthesia and Critical Care provides a comprehensive, practical overview of the perioperative management of patients with endocrine disorders, giving clear diagnostic advice and management guidelines. This book considers the management of patients with endocrine disorders of the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, including rarer disorders such as MEN syndrome. It then considers all aspects of the perioperative management of diabetic patients, including paediatric, obstetric and ambulatory patients.

Finally it discusses endocrine disorders in the critically ill patient, covering such issues as the topical conundrum of glucose control and the management of diabetic metabolic acidosis, thyroid storm and myxoedema coma. Every chapter reviews the relevant anatomy and pathophysiology and the latest developments in defining the genetic causes are also considered where appropriate.

Diabetes (Genes and Disease)

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Diabetes (Genes and Disease)
Jun 112020

Diabetes in all its forms has continued to baffle scientists and doctors for centuries. Though its symptoms and mechanisms are well understood, the genetic and environmental causes of diabetes are difficult to unravel. Diagnosis and treatment of the different types of diabetes are no longer impossible, but prevention and a cure remain beyond current scientific capabilities. As the genetic variations that contribute to diabetes are being discovered, many scientists have hope that a cure will come during the lifetimes of the young people today. In “Diabetes”, learn how scientists worldwide are laboring to finally conquer this disease.

Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3rd Edition

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3rd Edition
Jun 072020

Foot problems in diabetic patients are some of the most challenging complications to treat, due to an often quite late presentation of symptoms from the patient. Therefore visual recognition of presenting clinical signs is absolutely key for a successful diagnosis and subsequently, the right management programme.

The 3rd edition of Managing the Diabetic Foot once again provides a practical, handy and accessible pocket guide to the clinical management of patients with severe feet problems associated with diabetes, such as ulcers, infections and necrosis. By focusing on the need for a speedy response to the clinical signs, it will enable doctors make rapid, effective management decisions in order to help prevent deterioration and avoid the need for evental foot amputation.

Each chapter focuses specifically on the different stages of foot disease and the clinical management required at that particular stage, ie, the normal foot; high-risk foot, ulcerated foot, infected foot, necrotic foot and unsalvageable foot.

Full colour throughout, it will feature over 150 clinical photos, numerous hints and tips to aid rapid-reference, as well as the latest national and international guidelines on diabetic foot management.

Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3E, is the ideal go-to clinical tool for all diabetes professionals, specialist diabetes nurses and podiatrists managing patients with diabetic foot problems.

Obesity and Metabolism

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Obesity and Metabolism
Jun 012020

Description: It has become increasingly difficult to keep up with the growing body of literature on the genetics, metabolic phenotype and treatment of obesity. This volume brings together an array of chapters from many of the foremost authorities and researchers in this area. Key advances in the genetics of obesity are summarized and the effects of obesity in pregnancy, childhood and old age explored. By scrutinizing the hormones and enzymes most recently implicated in the development, maintenance and consequences of obesity, the biochemical and physiological background of the abnormal metabolism of obesity is mapped out. Furthermore, a practical update on clinical approach and treatment of obesity is offered.

Finally, the social aspects of obesity and the view of the obese body in art throughout the centuries are reflected. A valuable overview of causes, metabolic disturbances and treatment options, this volume will appeal to those with an interest in clinical as well as pathophysiological and genetic aspects of obesity. Furthermore, it will provide useful reading for scientists and students who would like to broaden and update their knowledge in this area

Surgical Metabolism: The Metabolic Care of the Surgical Patient (2nd Edition)

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Surgery  Comments Off on Surgical Metabolism: The Metabolic Care of the Surgical Patient (2nd Edition)
May 182020

The goal of this book is not to follow a traditional systems or organ-based approach but rather to encourage our readers to think of the patients as complex biochemical systems. The book provides information that supplements the more traditional approaches and provides a detailed overview of the metabolic knowledge needed for surgical practice. The text reviews normal physiology, the pathophysiology of starvation and surgical stressors. It also focuses on appropriate nutritional repletion for various common disease states. Specifically, chapters address the severe metabolic demands created by systemic inflammation, infection, and major insults such as trauma and burns. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information. As biochemical aspects of modern medicine are advancing rapidly, chapters have been updated and several new chapters have been added in order to help readers keep pace in this race for state-of-the-art knowledge.
Surgical Metabolism: The Metabolic Care of the Surgical Patient 2nd Edition is designed for clinicians across levels of training and provides clear and concise evidence based guidelines for the metabolic management and nutritional support of the surgical patient.

Diabetes Complications, Comorbidities and Related Disorders

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Diabetes Complications, Comorbidities and Related Disorders
May 102020

This book provides the reader with comprehensive information on the interactions between diabetes and a wide range of comorbid conditions and on disease management in such patients. It has the aim of empowering health care providers in their daily battle against the disease and its consequences. Diabetes has been identified by WHO and the United Nations as a medical emergency because of the increase in its global prevalence, which may reach one billion in three to four decades if the trend remains unchanged. Despite improved care that is helping to prolong life, diabetes impacts substantially on the quality of life of those affected and kills or disables several million people each year. The disease is systemic because all organs, tissues, and cells suffer in the presence of hyperglycemia and are damaged by the diabetic milieu. Unfortunately, most patients with diabetes will consequently experience chronic diabetic complications. This book will be of value for all physicians and nurses who care for patients with diabetes and face the challenge of treating hyperglycemia and related acute and chronic complications.
