Essential Microbiology for Dentistry

Lakshman P. Samaranayake

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 392

The new edition of this highly successful book continues to offer readers everything they require to gain a full understanding of microbiology as it relates to modern dental practice. Clearly written and in full colour throughout, the book uniquely divides the subject of microbiology into six discrete sections to relate the many aspects of microbiology for dental practice in a logical, easy-to-understand manner. The first part of the book covers the principles of general microbiology and is followed by a clear and straightforward account of basic immunology.

Orell and Sterrett's Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology

Gregory F. Sterrett, Svante R. Orell

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 512

This is a major revision of the leading textbook of FNA cytology. Both text and illustrations provide a systematic and logical approach to the acquisition, interpretation and diagnosis of Fine Needle Aspirate biopsy specimens. "Orell's FNA Cytology" will assist in establishing diagnostic criteria and results in the examination of benign and malignant condition in all body systems where the technique is currently applied.

Emergency Ultrasound Made Easy

Justin Bowra, Russell E. McLaughlin

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 224

The use of ultrasound in emergency medicine has proved invaluable in answering very specific, time-critical questions, such as the presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, or of blood in the abdomen after trauma. Unlike other imaging modalities (e.g. CT scan), it is a rapid technique that can be brought to the patient with ease. This book, "Emergency Ultrasound Made Easy", is accessible and easy to use in an emergency. It is aimed mainly at specialists and trainees in emergency medicine, surgery and intensive care; but its broad scope (e.g. rapid diagnosis of DVT) makes it an invaluable addition to the library of any doctor with an interest in ultrasound, whether in primary care or the hospital setting.

Clinical Application of Neuromuscular Techniques

The Lower Body

Judith Delany, Leon Chaitow

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 608

"Clinical Application of Neuromuscular Techniques, Volume 2 - The Lower Body", is a highly illustrated volume of more than 600 pages (Volume 1 - "The Upper Body" is also available). Almost 500 illustrations, with over 400 in two-colours, support the text throughout and make the anatomy and associated techniques easier to understand. This book covers MET (muscle energy techniques), NMT (neuromuscular techniques), PR (positional release) and many other bodywork techniques used in the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. The text has a regional, joint by joint structure, and the same sequence of headings is used for each joint, making the text easy to dip into. The unique feature of the book is that it describes the normal anatomy and physiology as well as the dysfunctions that may arise, giving a detailed evaluation and description of clinically important aspects of functional anatomy and physiology. Indications for treatments and guidance on making the appropriate treatment choice are given. Palpation methods are evaluated. The different NMT techniques are then described in relation to the joint anatomy involved, which include not only manual techniques but also acupuncture, hydrotherapies and nutritional support as well as guidance for the patient in the use of self-help approaches. Practical neuromuscular solutions are described in great detail for the treatment of somatic pain and dysfunction together with an eclectic selection of associated manual modalities. This book discusses theories and physiology relevant to the manual treatment of chronic pain, especially as it relates to the soft tissues of the lower body. Step-by-step protocols that address each muscle of a region and a regional approach to treatment are features that make this book unique. A structural review of each region, including ligaments and functional anatomy, adds value for new students and practitioners alike.

Visceral Vascular Manipulations

Alain Croibier, Jean-Pierre Barral

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 294

This work demonstrates a novel approach to visceral osteopathy. Basing their ideas on anatomy and physiology, Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier propose manipulation of the arteries to treat the intestines and other internal organs by increasing their blood flow. The arteries, elastic and muscular in structure, and the innumerable nerve filaments which surround them, react ideally to manual treatment. To be effective, however, these manipulations must be specific and precise. Thanks to the authors' long experience as therapists, their mastery of osteopathic techniques and the aid of ultrasound technology, they have devised innovative techniques to improve the visceral vascular circulation. In this book, the authors show the various sites of the principle pulses of the body and summarise the physiology of the circulation of the blood. The main organs and their physiology are addressed and include the heart, pancreas, small intestine, colon and other abdominal structures as well as the regions of the neck, skull and pelvic cavity. Rich in detailed, high quality illustrations, this book serves as both an anatomical reference and a guide to carrying out visceral vascular manipulations in the most effective way possible. The work is aimed at experienced osteopaths as well as those in training, and at other manual therapists who wish to widen their scope.
