Acupuncture: An Anatomical Approach, Second Edition
Practiced for more than 2,000 years, acupuncture was once restricted to the realm of alternative medicine. It was thought to be based on mythical elements and not easily understood by those in the scientific community. Acupuncture: An Anatomical Approach, Second Edition dispels these notions and brings this once backroom therapy into the forefront—explaining it in terms that can be easily comprehended by all medical professionals.
Presenting a scientific, anatomical approach to acupuncture, this volume discusses:
- The basics of the nervous system
- Acupuncture points located in the head and face, formed by the cranial nerves
- The cervical plexus, which forms acupuncture points in the neck region
- Acupuncture points formed by the brachial plexus in the upper limbs, spinal nerves in the body trunk, and the lumbar–sacral plexuses in the lower limbs
- The anesthesia effect of biochemical substances in the nervous system
- The measurement and quantification of pain
- Applications of acupuncture in clinical practice, from cases easy to treat to those more challenging
- Theories on the future of acupuncture
The treatment of pain, in general, is controversial, as many therapies have unintended consequences and side effects. Acupuncture provides a therapy that is quick, easy to perform, and requires no medications. This volume enables physicians, osteopaths, pain specialists, chiropractors, and other health professionals to perform this effective treatment for their patients who experience both chronic and acute pain.
3D Angiographic Atlas of Neurovascular Anatomy and Pathology
The 3D Angiographic Atlas of Neurovascular Anatomy and Pathology is the first atlas to present neurovascular information and images based on catheter 3D rotational angiographic studies. The images in this book are the culmination of work done by Neil M. Borden over several years using one of the first 3D neurovascular angiographic suites in the United States. With the aid of this revolutionary technology, Dr. Borden has performed numerous diagnostic neurovascular angiographic studies as well as endovascular neurosurgical procedures. The spectacular 3D images he obtained are extensively labeled and juxtaposed with conventional 2D angiograms for orientation and comparison. Anatomical color drawings and concise descriptions of the major intracranial vascular territories further enhance understanding of the complex cerebral vasculature.
Classic Papers in Orthopaedics 2014
The book categorizes articles by field of research to include studies on the hip and knee arthroplasty, sports medicine and arthroscopy, paediatric orthopaedics foot and ankle, spine, hand and upper extremity, trauma/fracture healing, oncology and basic science articles (stem cell, bone tissue, ligament, tendon tissue and implants).
Classic Papers in Orthopaedics assembles a distinguished team of contributors to identify, analyze and bring together in a single volume the most important articles from a broad range of publications that have become recognized as the defining articles in orthopaedics. It is a unique reference providing a single source for reviewing the most important papers in the discipline. It also provides a critical analysis of the strengths, weaknesses and the impact each paper has had on the development of orthopaedics and is therefore essential reading for all practicing orthopaedic surgeons, orthopaedic trainees sitting higher level exams, and all involved in research and clinical practice in the field of orthopaedics.
Postgraduate Orthopaedics: The Candidate’s Guide to the FRCS (TR & Orth) Examination
The FRCS (Tr & Orth) examination is a stressful experience, even for the most well-prepared candidate. There is nothing more frustrating than a good candidate with good knowledge failing because of lack of appropriate preparation or examination technique. This book will guide the orthopaedic trainee in preparing for the examination before they are thrown into the lion’s den. In the written section the authors give general advice about preparing for the MCQ/EMI paper. The clinical section covers both the long and short cases with examples of the most likely cases that regularly appear in the examination. The next four sections cover the remaining vivas, namely Basic Science, Trauma, Hands, and Paediatrics, each with the same structure. Finally, there are a series of real-life candidates’ blow-by-blow accounts of their whole examination experience. These give candidates a real-life perspective of what to expect during their own examination. Overall, the book presents the key essentials for success in the FRCS (Tr & Orth).
Practical Manual of Renal Medicine: Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation
This manual provides practical and accessible information on all aspects of general nephrology, dialysis, and transplantation. It outlines current therapies in straightforward language to help readers understand the treatment rationale, and does not assume extensive knowledge of anatomy, biochemistry, or pathophysiology. Consisting of 33 chapters written by 31 experts from four continents, this volume covers all the practical tips in the emergency and long-term management of patients with electrolyte disturbance, acid-base disturbance, acute renal failure, common glomerular diseases, hypertension, pregnancy-related renal disorders, chronic renal failure, and renal replacement therapy. It is thus an essential source of quick reference for nephrologists, internists, renal fellows, and renal nursing specialists, and is also suitable for graduate students and research scientists in the field of kidney diseases
Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance 2014
Infectious disease surveillance has evolved at an extraordinary pace during the past several decades, and continues to do so. It is increasingly used to inform public health practice in addition to its use as a tool for early detection of epidemics. It is therefore crucial that students of public health and epidemiology have a sound understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin modern surveillance of infectious disease.
Written by leaders in the field, who have vast hands-on experience in conducting surveillance and teaching applied public health, Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance is comprised of four sections. The first section provides an overview, a description of systems used by public health jurisdictions in the United States and legal considerations for surveillance. The second section presents chapters on major program-area or disease-specific surveillance systems, including those that monitor bacterial infections, foodborne diseases, healthcare-associated infections, and HIV/AIDS. THe following section is devoted to methods for conducting surveillance and also approaches for data analysis, communication and the use of traditional and social media. A concluding chapter showcases lessons learned from the New York City Department of Health’s experience in surveillance and epidemiology training.
This comprehensive new book covers major topics at an introductory to intermediate level, and will be an excellent resource for instructors. Suitable for use in graduate level courses in public health, human and veterinary medicine, and in undergraduate programs in public-health-oriented disciplines, Concepts and Methods in Infectious Disease Surveillance is also a useful primer for frontline public health practitioners, hospital epidemiologists, infection control practitioners, laboratorians in public health settings, infectious disease researchers, and medical and public health informaticians interested in a concise overview of infectious disease surveillance.
