Principles of Pharmacology: The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy

 Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology  Comments Off on Principles of Pharmacology: The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy
Jun 102020

This primary textbook for a first course in pharmacology offers an integrated, systems-based, and mechanism-based approach to understanding drug therapy. Each chapter focuses on a target organ system, begins with a clinical case, and incorporates cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology to explain how and why different drug classes are effective for diseases in that organ system.

Over 400 two-color illustrations show molecular, cellular, biochemical, and pathophysiologic processes underlying diseases and depict targets of drug therapy. Each Second Edition chapter includes a drug summary table presenting mechanism, clinical applications, adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations. New chapters explain how drugs produce adverse effects and describe the life cycle of drug development.

Handbook of Pediatric Obesity: Etiology, Pathophysiology, and Prevention

 Pathology, Pediatrics, Physiology  Comments Off on Handbook of Pediatric Obesity: Etiology, Pathophysiology, and Prevention
May 302020

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.

Neurologic Disease: A Modern Pathophysiologic Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pathology, Physiology  Comments Off on Neurologic Disease: A Modern Pathophysiologic Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment
May 302020

This novel title explores the central and peripheral nervous system in health and disease.  By first establishing a fundamental basic science knowledge about the cellular elements of the nervous system, the reader is then presented with clinical cases in a pathophysiologic manner, as exemplified in unifying Guillain Barre and Multiple Sclerosis in one chapter on Demyelinating Disease.  The reader is encouraged to adopt a systematic approach of sorting out neurologic problems he or she may face in clinical practice by identifying time and space factors based on the age of a patient.   High quality illustrations for each case are included in the book along with novel three-dimensional reconstructions of MR, PET, and CT data whenever possible. Developed largely for medical students as an introduction to the clinical neurosciences, for neurology residents, and for others doing graduate level neuroscience study, Neurology – A Modern, Pathophysiologic Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Neurologic Disease will also be of significant interest to the established neurologist as a comprehensive, up-to-date reference.

Basic Physiology for Anaesthetists

 Anesthesiology, Physiology  Comments Off on Basic Physiology for Anaesthetists
May 292020

Every trainee in anaesthesia requires a thorough understanding of basic physiology and its application to clinical practice. Now in its second edition, this comprehensively illustrated textbook bridges the gap between medical school and reference scientific texts. It covers the physiology requirements of the Primary FRCA examination syllabus. Chapters are organised by organ system, with particular emphasis given to the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems. The practical question-and-answer format helps the reader prepare for oral examinations, while ‘clinical reference’ boxes translate the physiological concepts to clinical practice. This new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised throughout, and includes six new chapters including the physiology of the eye, upper airway and exercise testing. It provides junior anaesthetists with an essential ‘one stop’ physiology resource.

 Internal Medicine, Pathology, Physiology  Comments Off on Pathophysiology of Disease: An Introduction to Clinical Medicine (8th Edition)
May 062020

The goal of this trusted text is to introduce you to clinical medicine by reviewing the pathophysiologic basis of 132 diseases (and associated signs and symptoms) commonly encountered in medical practice. The authors, all experts in their respective fields, have provided a concise review of relevant normal structure and function of each body system, followed by a description of the pathophysiologic mechanisms that underlie several common diseases related to that system. The accessible presentation features high-quality full-color illustrations, and numerous tables and diagrams.

Each chapter of Pathophysiology of Disease concludes with a collection of case studies and questions designed to test your understanding of the pathophysiology of each clinical entity discussed. These case studies allow you to apply your knowledge to specific clinical situations. Detailed answers to each case study question are provided at the end of the book.

This unique interweaving of physiological and pathological concepts will put you on the path toward thinking about signs and symptoms in terms of their pathophysiologic basis, giving you an understanding of the “why” behind illness and treatment.

•Twelve additional case studies, bringing the total to 132, one for each of the clinical entities discussed in the book’s 24 chapters
•More than 2/3 of the chapters are enhanced and refreshed by the input of new contributors
•Totally revised chapter on neoplasia
•New chapter sections on urticaria, spinocerebellar ataxia, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and spondyloarthropathies
