Understanding the numerous factors involved with body weight regulation and identifying interventions to prevent or treat the problem is an enormous task in and of itself. Addressing this issue in growing children is further complicated by the diverse challenges specific to children. Because of this, the field of childhood obesity is both extremely specialized and multidisciplinary. Featuring contributions from leading experts, Handbook of Pediatric Obesity: Etiology, Pathophysiology, and Prevention examines the problem of childhood obesity at the social, behavioral, environmental, metabolic, and genetic levels.

Michael Goren and Melinda Sothern are winners of the 2009 Oded Bar-Or Award for Excellence in Pediatric Obesity Research sponsored by the Obesity Society Pediatric Obesity Section

The book begins with a summary of the epidemiology of childhood obesity, stressing health and economic consequences. Focusing on the etiology of childhood obesity related to the regulation of body weight/energy balance during growth and development, the editors and their panel of experts examine obesity-related diseases in children such as pediatric type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease risk factors, and the metabolic syndrome. They close with detailed reviews of behavioral and environmental aspects and overviews of interventions for treatment and prevention.
The subject of obesity in growing children is, and will continue to be, a moving target for professionals in the field. Covering a wide range of applications and tools, this comprehensive book clarifies the challenges and offers strategies for their solution.

Covers the full range of arrhythmias encountered in pediatric patients
Presents each arrhythmia – from identification to management options – as well as showing how to make a precise non-invasive diagnosis from the ECG
Makes use of real ECG strips – not perfect redrawn examples – to show what readers will actually encounter in the clinical setting
In addition, the book discusses arrhythmias encountered in various clinical settings – early and late after operation, and in congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathy – as well as brief overview of the use of invasive EP studies, catheter ablation, pacemakers and defibrillators.
Whereas other books on this important topic are aimed and tailored for the needs of experts in pediatric cardiology, this book is ideal for pediatricians, pediatric intensivists, trainees in pediatrics, pediatric cardiology and pediatric intensive care, as well as for clinical support staff involved in the cardiac care of children.

System chapters begin with embryological development and review the key developmental stages of childhood. For infants and young children, this step-by-step guide uses the “quiet-to-active” approach favored by pediatric experts and considered more effective for this age-group than the traditional head-to-toe approach used for adults. Other key topics include pediatric mental health assessment and growth and development screening and surveillance.

  • Uses the quiet-to-active approach to the examination of infants and young children, starting with listening and moving on to touching, the pediatric assessment approach that yields the best results in this age group.
  • More than 300 photos and line drawings facilitate learning and familiarize you with common assessment findings.

  • NEW! Expanded coverage of history-taking and charting, with special emphasis on electronic charting, dermatologic assessment of more darkly pigmented skin, and adolescent assessment, provides valuable, need-to-know information.
  • NEW! Expanded coverage of pediatric mental health assessment, including depression and anxiety, better equips you to assess for the 70% of adolescent mental health disorders that are thought to be unrecognized and untreated.
  • NEW! Family, Cultural, and Racial Considerations sections address the increasingly important areas of family and cultural assessment to prepare you for differences to anticipate when assessing children of different cultural or racial groups.
  • NEW! Enhanced illustration program featuring more than 50 new photos and illustrations better prepares you for clinical practice.
  • NEW Summary of Examination lists at the end of each examination chapter highlight key assessment points associated with each body system and serve as a convenient quick reference and learning aid.
  • NEW! Evidence-Based Practice Tips highlight useful research findings that guide you in your clinical practice.
  • NEW! New and updated content on congenital and acquired heart disease, disorders of sexual differentiation, and sports-related concussions, as well as updated autism screening guidelines and World Health Organization (WHO) growth charts, highlights important trends in pediatric primary care practice.
  • NEW! Improved Environmental Health History chapter, with new information on exposure to lead and endocrine-disrupting chemicals, culture-specific exposures, and diagnostic testing, addresses key toxicants and guides you in performing an environmental health screening history and establishing a risk profile for exposure to environmental pollutants.
  • NEW! Attractive new design improves readability and usability, as well as learning and reference value.

Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties (Oxford Medical Handbooks) – 10th Edition

 Internal Medicine, Ob/Gynae, Pediatrics, Surgery  Comments Off on Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties (Oxford Medical Handbooks) – 10th Edition
May 072020
 

Covering each of the fourteen core medical specialties, the tenth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties is the must-have reference guide to each of the specialties you will encounter through your medical school and Foundation Programme rotations. Now updated with the latest guidelines, and developed by a new and trusted author team who have contemporary experience of life on the wards, this unique resource presents the content in a concise and logical way, giving clear advice on clinical management and offering insight into holistic care.

Packed full of high-quality illustrations, boxes, tables, and classifications, this handbook is ideal for use at direct point of care, whether on the ward or in the community, and for study and revision. Each chapter is easy to read and filled with digestible information, with features including ribbons to mark your most-used pages and mnemonics to help you memorize and retain key facts, while quotes from patients help the reader understand each problem better, enhancing the doctor/patient relationship. With reassuring and friendly advice throughout, this is the ultimate guide for every medical student and junior doctor for each clinical placement, and as a revision tool. This tenth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties remains the perfect companion to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, together encompassing the entire spectrum of clinical medicine and helping you to become the doctor you want to be.

Review

Review from previous edition: “This new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialities may appear small in size but don’t underestimate it. … [This] is an essential component of any medical student’s bookshelf and will be very useful in guiding you through the main clinical
specialities.”

–Northwing Magazine, University of Sheffield, UK, November 2013

“Applying humanism as the basis of delivering medical care, the reward for the physician and proven healing effect for the patient becomes evident. I found this focus delightful and worthy of every physician’s consideration… They consistently encourage sympathy and compassion in the many
types of patient interactions primary care providers will face and the reward this brings in a career that encompasses patient care from conception to end of life. The authors mine their experience for rich, authoritative insights into these many aspects of medicine.”

–Doody’s Notes, April 2013

“Although there are several good pocket-sized medical references, I have not seen one that has the detail and easy format for quick reference as this one does. It includes thoughtful tools and an invitation for feedback from the authors. What I find most appealing is the unique emphasis on the
human aspects of practicing medicine that is evident throughout, which is blended well with the more frequently taught technical, knowledge-based information. The authors succeed in their goal of emphasizing connection and compassion as a means to delivering more effective patient care as well as
supporting and enhancing the physician’s reason for choosing this career. If you are looking for a quick reference medical book, you will not be disappointed. The focus on the perspective of compassionate humans caring for people in need is a particularly useful bonus.”
