Neuropathic Pain

A Case-Based Approach to Practical Management

a cura di Jianguo Cheng

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 456

Neuropathic pain is one of the most common, most debilitating, most costly, and most difficult to treat categories of chronic pain conditions that are characterized by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system. Managing neuropathic pain is challenging and requires skillful assessment and comprehensive and integrated treatment strategies that are mechanism-guided, evidence-based, and individualized. However, these critical and integral elements are very fragmented in the current literature. The mechanistic understanding of neuropathic pain is typically found in basic research articles. Clinical research evidence is presented in forms of clinical trials with emphasis on minimizing biases such as those from patient selection and assessment. Individualized considerations for each patient are usually presented in case reports and problem-based learning discussions. This book overcomes these barriers and integrates all the critical elements around individual patient care into a coherent management strategy that is practical and applicable to daily clinical practice. Rather than compiling what have been published in the literature, this work emphasizes on identifying and highlighting the key points or findings that guide decision-making in clinical practice. It integrates the key points around a typical case scenario that not only represents the core of the diagnostic and therapeutic processes but also allows introduction and differentiation of painful conditions that bare similarities with the case in hand. The overarching goal is to improve clinical outcomes through better understanding of the mechanisms, more accurate diagnosis, and wiser and more comprehensive treatment strategies.

Biscotti e radici quadrate. Lezioni di matematica e pasticceria

Eugenia Cheng

editore: Ponte alle Grazie

pagine: 390

Che cos'è la matematica e come funziona? Ha qualcosa a che fare con il taglio di una torta? Eugenia Cheng, esuberante professoressa di Matematica Pura all'Università di Sheffield, in questo libro mette a disposizione la sua esperienza di docente per spiegarci la bellezza e la logica di questa disciplina, impastandola - è proprio il caso di dirlo - con la sua forte passione per la cucina e in particolare per la pasticceria: così come per cucinare un dolce è necessario conoscere gli ingredienti e il procedimento, per capire che cosa sia la matematica e fare matematica sono necessari ingredienti - numeri, figure geometriche, operazioni - e capire in che cosa consiste il metodo. Quello che ci spaventa di questa materia è l'astrazione, dunque la Cheng cerca di farci digerire i concetti astratti attraverso l'analogia: attività semplici e quotidiane come cucinare, leggere un cartello stradale, correre hanno molto in comune con numeri primi e dimostrazioni. Così passando da una crema pasticcerà a un assioma, da una torta allo zenzero alla teoria delle categorie questa straordinaria e appassionata cuoca/professoressa rende fragrante, desiderabile e cremosa la temibile, spaventosa, algida matematica.
