Travel Medicine

Colour Guide

Eric Walker, Fiona Raeside
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 104

This is a highly illustrated guide to an increasingly important area of health care. GPs and Practice Nurses are frequently called upon to give medical advice to people taking holidays in places which until very recently were only visited by explorers or serious mountaineers, while travel to countries where malaria is endemic is now common. Travellers frequently return with exotic rashes, etc, which are highly suitable for illustration in colour. All the important areas of the subject are covered, including advice to travellers on immunisation, malaria, assessing fitness to travel, illness while travelling and problems after return. There is at present no widely available short guide to travel medicine which is illustrated in colour and is suitable for a wide range of health professionals - this Colour Guide fills that gap.

Evidence Based Coronary Care

Mark Connaughton

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 216

All junior doctors and in particular trainee cardiologists will at some point in their training be involved in managing acute coronary syndromes and other cardiac emergencies.

"Evidence-Based Coronary Care" will provide junior doctors with the answers they seek when dealing with difficult clinical situations.

Clinical Applications of Neuromuscular Techniques

Judith Delany, Leon Chaitow

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 496

This long awaited text is the first of two volumes which presents the theories, validation and techniques of manual treatment for both chronic and acute neuromuscular pain and somatic dysfunction. Unlike many other texts, the theory and practice are described within the context of the normal anatomy and physiology of the related structures. The book takes a regional approach to treatment, giving a structural review of each area, including ligaments and functional anatomy. It then examines each muscle and joint in that region, giving step-by-step protocols for each muscle to be treated, using a variety of neuromuscularapproaches. Particular reference is made to the treatment of trigger points. Each joint and muscle has the same sequence of headings making it easy for the reader to dip into what they need to review. Numerous two colour illustrations also appear throughout, making the anatomy and techniques described easier to follow. The two authors have drawn together and integrated information that currently has to be accessed from several sources. The result is a text which will do much to ensure the safe and effective application of soft tissue techniques and which will provide an invaluable source of reference to all manual therapy students and practitioners.
