a cura di James L. Levenson

editore: American Psychiatric Association Publishing

pagine: 1410

As with the first two editions, this third edition of The American Psychiatric Association Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry is the most comprehensive reference on the subspecialty available. Extensively revised and updated, this new edition also features 30 new authors. The emphasis on a diversity of perspectives remains as strong as ever: Chapter authors represent a range of backgrounds and disciplines, and of opinions and viewpoints, and 24 of the 88 contributors are from countries other than the United States. Organized into four sections, the textbook addresses General principles of evaluation and management, legal and ethical issues, and psychological reactions to illness. Psychiatric symptoms and disorders -- including delirium, aggression, depression, suicidality, psychosis, anxiety, eating and sleep disturbances, sexual dysfunction, and substance use problems -- commonly encountered in medically ill populations. Psychological and social aspects of diseases and disorders affecting the various organ systems. Psychiatric treatments in the medically ill, including psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, electroconvulsive and other neurostimulation therapies, and palliative care. Encyclopedic in its scope and accessible in its presentation, The American Psychiatric Association Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry is an essential resource for psychiatry residents, psychosomatic medicine fellows, attending psychiatrists, and other specialists who need to stay up to date with the rapidly expanding evidence base in the field.

Clinical Manual of Psychopharmacology in the Medically Ill

James A. Owen, James L. Levenson
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Publishing

pagine: 640

Psychiatric drugs are frequently used in the medically ill and are prescribed to nearly three-quarters of medically ill patients seen in psychiatric consultation. Primary care and other nonpsychiatric physicians account for more than one-half of prescriptions written for psychiatric drugs, typically to patients with complex medical illnesses. Appropriate use of psychopharmacology in the medically ill requires careful consideration of the underlying disease process and the potential for multiple complex interactions. "Clinical Manual of Psychopharmacology in the Medically Ill" is a comprehensive yet practical guide to psychotropic prescribing for patients who are medically ill. Both basic and more specialized knowledge is covered, from fundamental principles of psychotropic prescribing to disease - and organ system-specific issues. Designed to be useful to a broad range of specialists, this manual will equip clinicians with the detailed and directly relevant information they need to provide safe and effective psychopharmacological treatment for their patients with medical illness.

Essentials of Psychosomatic Medicine

James L. Levenson

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 608

This condensed version of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine focuses on psychiatric care for medically ill patients. Essentials of Psychosomatic Medicine presents that portion of the larger work devoted to specific disorders, enabling the practitioner to assist patients with comorbid psychiatric and general medical illnesses complicating each other's management. Each chapter covers epidemiology, psychological factors affecting specific diseases, the effects those diseases have on mental health, diagnostic issues, and treatment, including psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, psychiatric side effects of drugs for medical conditions, and drug interactions relevant to the diseases covered. More succinct than the Textbook while offering broader coverage than most other books on psychiatric care of medical patients, Essentials first guides users through general principles in evaluation and management and then offers, in concise form, all 18 specialty chapters from the Textbook, updated for this edition. All of the medical specialties are covered, including the internal medicine subspecialties, neurology, surgery, ob-gyn, organ transplantation, pediatrics, dermatology, physical medicine, and pain management. Each chapter ends with multiple-choice questions for self-assessment. Among the range of issues taken up are -Depression as a major factor affecting medical outcomes in coronary artery disease, diabetes, and other diseases. -Neuropsychiatric presentations of endocrine, rheumatologic, and infectious diseases. -Controversies surrounding functional disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. -Psychiatric complications of medical treatments like chemotherapy, implanted defibrillators, and immunosuppression. -Psychological factors affecting medical compliance and surgical results. -Special considerations in using psychiatric drugs in the medically ill. Today's psychiatrists are increasingly called upon to help diagnose, understand, and manage a wide array of conditions in order to address the needs of both the patient and the medical-surgical team. Concise yet comprehensive, Essentials of Psychosomatic Medicine stands at the interface of psychiatry and medicine to help them better meet those needs.
