Vivere con l'alzheimer. Consigli semplici per la vita quotidiana

Cameron J. Camp

editore: Erickson

pagine: 164

Spesso chi si occupa della cura di una persona con demenza si sente frustrato, impotente, privo di ogni possibilità di intervento utile. Il volume contrasta questa comune percezione, offrendo strumenti concreti nell'approccio al malato: conoscere il suo contesto di vita e i suoi interessi, sapere come riconoscere e valorizzare le abilità conservate (ad esempio la lettura), indovinare le possibili cause di agitazione e modificare l'ambiente fisico e sociale quando provoca comportamenti problematici. Caratterizzato da uno stile leggero e spiritoso, ma allo stesso tempo fondato su rigorose evidenze di ricerca e ispirato al Programma Montessori per la Demenza, Vivere con l'Alzheimer fornisce decine di consigli pratici per affrontare le molte sfide davanti a cui ci pone la demenza, in particolare negli stadi da moderati ad avanzati. Attraverso storie reali, il volume dimostra che le persone con capacità mnesiche compromesse possono ancora essere in grado di apprendere nuovi comportamenti e trarre vantaggio da trattamenti non farmacologici, rendendo così la propria vita più ricca, significativa e "normale", nonostante la malattia.

Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine

Biswadev Mitra, Gary J. Browne
e altri


pagine: 688

It is now more than ten years since the publication of the first edition of Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine and interest in this specialty continues to grow at a local and international level. Paediatric emergency medicine can be a challenging and difficult area for doctors. Children cannot always communicate their problems verbally, while parents are anxious and the possibility of a missed diagnosis is ever present. Although the principles in managing paediatric patients are the same as adults there are significant differences in patterns of illness and response. In addition, the therapies available vary widely between adult and paediatric practice. Textbook of Paediatric Emergency Medicine provides clear, concise and comprehensive coverage of all the major topics that present within paediatric emergency medicine. It offers a consensus approach to diagnosis and treatment, drawing on the latest evidence available. Short chapters with key point boxes allow for the quick and easy retrieval of information, essential when time is short. This Third Edition captures the major changes in guidelines across the specialty in the assessment and management of paediatric patients, whilst refining established approaches to practice. The text reviews both new technologies and the better application of older techniques which have led to changes in practice. There are significant updates to the sections on resuscitation and trauma, the clinical applications of bedside ultrasound, analgesia and sedation. There is also a new focus on the teaching and research sections.

Le tecniche della programmazione neurolinguistica (PNL) sono applicate in questo volume alla terapia sessuale e di coppia.

E se il libro è rivolto soprattutto ai terapeuti in formazione, non mancherà di interessare tutti coloro che vogliono crescere, cambiare, scoprire le proprie risorse interiori, capire a fondo il loro comportamento, e riprendersi il controllo della propria vita invece di lasciarsi portare dagli eventi.

Gesti e atteggiamenti che parlano da soli. Capire e padroneggiare il linguaggio del corpo per migliorare il rapporto con se stessi e con gli altri

Milton Cameron

editore: Il Punto d'Incontro

pagine: 125

Tutti i gesti che compiamo, anche i più banali o abituali, nascondono un significato ben preciso e rivelano, di solito senza che ce ne accorgiamo, i nostri pensieri, gli stati d'animo e persino il nostro carattere. Imparare a decifrare il modo in cui ci muoviamo è fondamentale per conoscere meglio noi stessi e gli altri. Attraverso spiegazioni e disegni che illustrano in dettaglio, per ogni parte del corpo, le varie modalità d'espressione gestuale, questo testo insegna a individuare le zone e i territori da rispettare nella comunicazione fisica, svela i segreti per sviluppare un "lessico corporale adeguato" e per decifrare i gesti di ogni interlocutore.

A History of the Treatment of Renal Failure by Dialysis

J. Stewart Cameron

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 368

This book tells the extraordinary story of how the function of the first - and so far almost the only - human organ was replaced by a machine, and the "artificial kidney" entered medical and public folk-lore. A practical artificial kidney, or dialyser, came about by advances in science followed by the acquisition of new synthetic materials which made the application of these ideas possible. However it was the dedication and persistence of a number of talented pioneers who pressed ahead against professional opposition to achieve success, first in the treatment of temporary, recoverable kidney failure, and then permanent renal shut-down which made it a success. The apparent high cost and limited availability of this form of treatment immediately raised ethical questions which had never been questioned before, centering around equity of access to treatment, when and if treatment could be denied, and - worst of all - the agonising decision of when, once established, it should be stopped. Spiralling costs as the true number of people with kidney failure became evident raised major political and financial questions, which were addressed in different countries in different ways which reflected - but also helped change - patterns of how medical care is provided. In developed countries, the problem could be solved by allocating a disproportionate amount of money to the treatment of relatively few kidney patients, but in the developing world the cost of treatment still limits its availability, as it does all forms of modern health care. Nevertheless, today almost one million people world-wide are maintained alive following terminal kidney failure, two thirds of them by various forms of dialysis and the remainder bearing kidney transplants, almost always placed after a period on dialysis. The story is also the sum of the often heroic lives of these hundreds of thousands of patients, a few of whom have today been maintained alive and active for more than 35 years, and many of whom suffered known, but also unexpected complications as a result of their treatment.
