The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases: Pathophysiology, Clinical Aspects and Therapeutic Approaches 1st Edition

The prevalence of autoimmune diseases and rheumatic conditions is constantly increasing. Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 7-10% of the population of the United States, while more than 50,000,000 American adults suffer from some type of arthritis. The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases examines the complex mechanisms relating to cardiac diseases from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. Autoimmune rheumatic diseases can affect the coronary vessels, myocardium, pericardium, heart valves and the conduction system. The diagnosis of these unique cardiac complications necessitates medical awareness and a high index of suspicion. Increased risk of advanced atherosclerosis plays a pivotal role in the development of cardiac diseases in systemic, rheumatic and autoimmune illnesses. Yet, other complex immune medicated mechanisms may contribute to the pathogenesis. Patients’ optimal care requires coordination between the primary caregiver, the rheumatologist, immunologist and cardiologist. Screening for cardiovascular risk factors, recognition of high-risk patients and identification of subclinical cardiac conditions are of great importance. Moreover, regulation of inflammation, as well as abnormal immune responses and the initiation of early treatments should be the focus of patient management. A continuous attempt to identify novel therapeutic targets and change the natural history of the underlying disease and its cardiac manifestations is in progress. The book aims at providing the readers with a state of the art collection of up to date information regarding clinically important topics based on experts’ perspectives.

This book was a result of an extended coordinated collaboration of one-hundred and fifty-four distinguished scientists from thirty-one countries around the globe.

Fundamentals of Physiology: A Human Perspective Edition 3

FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY, Third Edition, is based on Lauralee Sherw

 

ood’s best selling Fifth Edition of HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS. While both texts cover the same key topics in a current, engaging, and clinically relevant manner, FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY is briefer, lower in level, and requires less of a background in chemistry, physics, and math than its sister text. Essential content is organized around the central theme of homeostasis, as demonstrated by the system-specific homeostatic model that opens each chapter, as well as the “Focus on Homeostasis” that completes each chapter. New to this edition are process-oriented figures, created to aid today’s visual learners. These figure

s include step-by-step descriptions summarizing and integrating various aspects of essential concepts. Another noteworthy addition is the comparative and early introduction of “Principles of Neural and Hormonal Communication”-a NE

W Chapter 4. This edition also showcases an emphasis on real-life experiences, using analogies as well as new “Clinical Note” icons, which flag clinically relevant material.

Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders (Lange Medical Books) 1st Edition

A concise full-color review of the mechanisms of blood diseases and disorders – based on a Harvard Medical School hematology course

2015 Doody’s Core Title!

4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!

“This is a superb book. Deceptively small, yet packs a wallop. The emphasis on principles instead of practice is welcome….The text is clear, concise, and surprisingly approachable for what could have been a very dense and dry discussion. I could not put this book down and read it entirely in one sitting. When was the last time anyone found a hematology textbook so riveting?”–Doody’s Review Service

Hematological Pathophysiology is a well-illustrated, easy-to-absorb introduction to the physiological principles underlying the regulation and function of blood cells and hemostasis, as well as the pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for the development of blood disorders. Featuring a strong emphasis on key principles, the book covers diagnosis and management primarily within a framework of pathogenesis.

Authored by world-renowned clinician/educators at Harvard Medical School, Hematological Pathophysiology features content and organization based on a hematology course offered to second year students at that school. The book is logically divided into four sections: Anemias and Disorders of the Red Blood Cell, Disorders of Hemostasis and Thrombosis, Disorders of Leukocytes, and Transfusion Medicine; it opens with an important overview of blood and hematopoietic tissues.

 

Features

  • Succinct, to-the-point coverage that reflects current medical education
  • More than 200 full-color photographs and renderings of disease mechanisms and blood diseases
  • Each chapter includes learning objectives and self-assessment questions
  • Numerous tables and diagrams encapsulate important information
  • Incorporates the feedback of 180 Harvard medical students who reviewed the first draft — so you know you’re studying the most relevant material possible
