Urogynaecology

Helen Jefferis, Natalia Price

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 192

Urogynaecological problems are one of the most common reasons that women are referred to the hospital services, and can account for up to a fifth of the gynaecological surgery waiting list at any time. Pelvic floor problems can have a huge impact on the patient's quality of life, and therefore should be managed appropriately. Compact, portable, and comprehensive, this new addition to the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Obstetrics and Gynaecology series covers all aspects of pelvic floor function and dysfunction, and approaches to assessment and management in all compartments (the bladder, reproductive system, and bowel). Special chapters are dedicated to urogynaecological issues in pregnancy and childbirth, and also to the effects of age on the pelvic floor. Covering all material needed for those undertaking the RCOG Advanced Training Skills Module in Urogynaecology and Vaginal Surgery, this is an invaluable guide for both senior general trainees in Gynaecology, and subspecialty trainees in urogynaecology.

Obstetric Medicine

Charlotte Frise, Sally Collins

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 584

Obstetric Medicine contains relevant, accessible, and focused information to help both general physicians to manage medical conditions during pregnancy, and the specialist obstetrician manage general medicine in the pregnant patient.Pregnant women regularly present with medical problems to many different medical specialties, and as their physiology is changed by the pregnancy, so too is the way in which many chronic illnesses behave. There are also differences in which drugs or investigations may be appropriate during pregnancy. This new specialist handbook provides a comprehensive overview of medical conditions in the pregnant patient, and covers the syllabus for both the RCOG Advanced Training Skills Module (ATSM) and the maternal medicine for obstetric trainees.Filled with links to national and international guidelines, expert advice, and evidence-based management strategies for a range of acute and chronic conditions that can occur in the pregnant woman, this handbook is an essential new addition to the literature for all physicians who work with pregnant patients in their practice

Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast

Laura C. Collins, Stuart J. Schnitt

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 512

A practical guide for the diagnostic surgical pathologist, this new edition of "Biopsy Interpretation of the Breast" presents the diverse spectrum of pathologic alterations that occur in the breast in a manner analogous to that in which they are encountered in daily practice. Lesions are grouped together according to their histologic patterns rather than by the traditional benign-malignant categorization in order to simulate the way pathologists face these lesions as they examine microscopic slides on a daily basis. The role of adjunctive studies in solving diagnostic problems in breast pathology is emphasized where appropriate. In addition, the clinical significance and impact on patient management of the various diagnoses are discussed and key clinical and management points highlighted. Features include: lesions grouped by histologic patterns to simulate real-world experience; many sections updated to reflect the most recent advances in the field; more than 550 color images, including over 100 new images, highlight key pathologic features and streamline visual diagnosis; bulleted tables summarize key diagnostic features of various lesions; and a concise, convenient format that serves as a practical reference and diagnostic guide for pathologists. Included with the companion web site: fully searchable text; more than 300 full-color images; and test bank that is ideal for board exam preparation.

Sport and Exercise Nutrition

Adam Collins, Samantha Stear
e altri

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 400

Now widely adopted on courses throughout the world, the prestigious Nutrition Society Textbook series provides students with the scientific basics in nutrition in the context of a systems and disease approach rather than on a nutrient by nutrient basis. In addition books provide a means to enable teachers and students to explore the core principles of nutrition and to apply these throughout their training to foster critical thinking at all times. This NS Textbook on Sport and Exercise Nutrition has been written to cover the latest information on the science and practice of sport and exercise nutrition. A key concept behind this textbook is that it aims to combine the viewpoints of world leading nutrition experts from both academia/research and a practical stand point. Plus where necessary there are additional practitioner based authors to ensure theory is translated into practice for each chapter in the form of either 'practice tips' or 'information sheets' at the end of relevant chapters. The textbook in essence can be divided into three distinct but integrated parts: Part 1: covers the key components of the science that supports the practice of sport and exercise nutrition including comprehensive reviews on: nutrients both in general and as exercise fuels; exercise physiology; hydration, micronutrients; and supplements. Part 2: moves into focusing on specific nutrition strategies to support different types of training including: resistance; power/sprint; middle distance/speed endurance; endurance; technical/skill, team; and specific competition nutrition needs. The unique format of this textbook is that it breaks down nutrition support into training specific as opposed to the traditional sport specific support. This reflects the majority of current sport and exercise requirements of the need to undertake concurrent training and therefore facilitating targeted nutrition support to the different training components through the various macro and micro training cycles. Part 3: explores some of the practical issues encountered in working in the sport and exercise nutrition field and includes key sport related topics such as: disability sport; weight management; eating disorders; bone and gut health; immunity; injury; travel; and special populations and situations. READERSHIP: Students of nutrition and dietetics at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. All those working in the field of nutrition and related health sciences.

La strada per la libertà

Michael Collins

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 164

L'esperienza di Collins, scrittore, polemista ed eroe della resistenza irlandese, ci ricorda quanto sia tortuoso il cammino verso la libertà. E' lecito ricorrere alle armi per garantire l'autonomia di un popolo? Fino a che punto è giustificata la resistenza ai poteri iniqui? Gli scritti di Collins non solo spiegano le cause della guerra civile che ancora infuria nell'Irlanda del Nord ma ci portano al cuore della crisi dello stato moderno, della questione della rappresentanza politica e della legittimità del "diritto di ribellione".

Io parlo con la coda

Capire il linguaggio segreto dei cani

Sophie Collins

editore: White Star

pagine: 125

Quando sorride è un segno di felicità o di nervosismo? Sbadiglia perché è stanco oppure è stressato? Ha le orecchie piegate all'indietro perché è contento oppure è sulla difensiva? Atteggiamenti difficili da comprendere, latrati inattesi e altri dilemmi del comportamento canino trovano una spiegazione in questo volume che svela cosa il vostro cane sta cercando di comunicarvi davvero, anche grazie al supporto delle immagini. Questa pratica guida vi insegnerà gli atteggiamenti canini, quasi fosse un utile frasario che illustra come il vostro amico a quattro zampe utilizza le varie parti del corpo per comunicare.
