100 Cases in Clinical Medicine

Christopher Kosky, James Pattison
e altri

editore: Hodder Education

pagine: 275

Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions and then choosing the best course of action is an essential skill for doctors. Exploring initial medical assessment, 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency or outpatient department, on the ward, or in the community setting. Each case begins with a succinct summary of the patient's history, examination, and initial investigation. The text includes photographs where relevant and questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answers provide a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate. Most of the cases included are common problems but the book also includes more unusual cases to illustrate specific points and to emphasize that rare things do present. The first 20 cases are arranged by systems; the next 80 are in random order because symptoms such as breathlessness and pain may relate to many different clinical problems in various systems. These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical symptoms and signs and to develop the diagnostic and management skills needed for the cases they will encounter on the job.

High Altitude Medicine and Physiology

James S. Milledge, John B. West
e altri

editore: Hodder Arnold

pagine: 480

More than half a century has passed since man first stood on the summit of Mount Everest, and the story of man's attempts to climb higher and higher unaided is one of the more colourful and exciting in medicine and physiology. The past few decades have seen an explosion in the interest in mountain pursuits in general, as increasing numbers of people take to the mountains for day trips and longer excursions. As a result, doctors face ever expanding challenges in dealing with the changes in human physiology and particular medical conditions that arise from exposure to altitude and cold. Building on the success and reputation of previous editions the fourth edition includes major changes in the scientific content, with updates in many areas. The area of genetics has assumed great importance, along with other advances in molecular biology and medicine, and these are incorporated throughout the text. There are also new or improved sections on women and children at high altitude, the role of vascular endothelial growth factor, neurological disorders at high altitude, athletic training using high altitude, high altitude pulmonary edema, and the problems of patients with pre-existing disease. Other new features include summary boxes highlighting important concepts, and increased tabulation of key data for rapid reference. Despite the addition of new material, the authors have avoided the text become unwieldy and less readable with prudent pruning of existing material. High Altitude Medicine and Physiology remains invaluable reading for any doctor accompanying an expedition to altitude or advising patients on a visit to altitude, and for those physicians and physiologists who study our dependence on oxygen. The aim of the highly-respected authors, joined following the retirement of Michael Ward by Robert Schoene - to provide a text that will help physicians continue to improve the health and safety of all people who visit, live or work in the cold, thin air of high mountains - is undoubtedly met by this new edition.

Casebook of Psychosomatic Medicine

Debra Kahn, James A. Bourgeois
e altri

editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 336

The practice of medicine is both learned and advanced through the compilation and study of cases -- vignettes that record the presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of individual patients and diseases. This is especially true of psychosomatic medicine (PSM), which depends on the "compelling case" to distill clinical knowledge and communicate it to students, residents, and clinicians. An invaluable contribution to the field, the Casebook of Psychosomatic Medicine describes the psychiatric symptoms and/or illnesses managed by the PSM psychiatrist in collaboration with other medical colleagues. The book presents a broad range of cases illustrating the medical, psychosocial, and intertwined situations psychiatrists are likely to encounter in an academic medical center setting. No other single volume offers a broader range of engaging, detailed, and nuanced PSM cases, or grounds them so firmly in a psychiatric, psychosocial, and spiritual context. Here are just a few of this patient-centered book's most impressive and useful features: * The relevant science underlying each case is addressed in discussion sections, allowing the book to be read as a stand-alone volume. Alternatively, the cases can be read as instructive and insightful illustrations by the reader who has already absorbed the fundamentals of PSM from standard textbooks in the field.* This user-friendly book is organized by the organ system or disease type of the presenting illness or symptom.* Content rare in volumes of this kind includes detailed coverage of the diagnosis and management of cognitive disorders; the management of drug toxicity states; determinations of decisional capacity for medical decision making; and "stress and adaptation", an issue the PSM psychiatrist encounters daily.* The authors strongly believe that one of the most crucial roles for the psychiatrist is in the medical center, and the book reflects that orientation. * The book addresses the importance of understanding the impact of patients' systemic illnesses on their psychiatric symptoms, and modifying interventions and care accordingly. These abilities are critical to sound PSM practice. Although PSM has a long and noble history, it is the newest of the psychiatric subspecialties, and as the literature expands, more and more clinicians will incorporate PSM treatment modalities into their practice. The Casebook of Psychosomatic Medicine is an essential contribution to that body of knowledge and establishes a new standard with which to face the future of this exciting field.
