Patologie della pleura

a cura di Paolo Solidoro

editore: Edizioni Medico-Scientifiche

pagine: 88

Le patologie della pleura presentano vari meccanismi fisiopatologici eziopatogenetici e necessitano di un ampio spettro di nozioni per potere essere affrontate e gestite con competenza ed efficacia. Le cause cardiocircolatorie, infettive, infiammatorie ed oncologiche che le determinano e sottendono i differenti quadri clinici, richiedono il consulto e l’approccio da parte di numerosi specialisti (internisti, cardiologi, reumatologi, radiologi, pneumologi, infettivologi, chirurghi toracici, oncologi, anatomopatologi) che vengano in supporto al medico di medicina generale, che spesso è il primo attore nella diagnosi e terapia, per comprendere appieno l’intera varietà di presentazioni e trattamenti disponibili in questo campo in rapido sviluppo. A questo fine il testo fornisce una panoramica sintetica e completa della malattia pleurica, a cominciare dall’anatomia e dalla fisiologia della pleura, per coprire quindi un’ampia gamma di condizioni specifiche in modo più dettagliato, tra cui lo pneumotorace, i versamenti pleurici, le infezioni pleuriche, nonché capitoli di radiologia e anatomia patologica. Ampio risalto viene inoltre dedicato alla neoplasia pleurica ed al suo istotipo più comune: il mesotelioma. Scritto da un team di specialisti, (Najib M. Rahman, Ian Hunt, Fergus V. Gleeson, Nick A. Maskell) questo testo dedicato alle malattie pleuriche è una guida pratica per tutti i protagonisti dell’approccio clinico e terapeutico al paziente con patologia pleurica, dai Medici di Medicina Generale, agli specialisti ambulatoriali ed ospedalieri coinvolti, a tutti gli Operatori Sanitari che si occupino delle patologie toraciche, sia per una rapida consultazione e per un’indicazione pratica al letto del paziente che come stimolo ad un ulteriore approfondimento bibliografico.

Manuale di pneumologia e terapia intensiva

Judd W. Landsberg

editore: Piccin

pagine: 431

Questo libro contiene materiale di studio e casi illustrati che sono stati raccolti e perfezionati nel corso di oltre una decade, focalizzati su argomenti di base che sono insegnati male, pieni di malintesi e per i quali non esistono chiari algoritmi di gestione. Vorrei aver avuto questo libro quando ho iniziato la mia formazione e sono felice di averlo adesso a disposizione per insegnare ai miei studenti. La mia speranza è che questo libro vi possa aiutare ogni giorno nella vostra pratica clinica e nei vostri insegnamenti.

Fisiologia della respirazione. L'essenziale

John B. West, Andrew M. Luks

editore: Piccin-Nuova Libraria

pagine: 280

Dalla prefazione Questo libro è stato pubblicato per la prima volta più di quaranta anni fa ed è stato al servizio di parecchie generazioni di studenti. È stato tradotto in quindici lingue. Questa nuova undicesima edizione comprende numerose innovazioni. Prima di tutto ci sono molte più domande a scelta multipla, impostate in modo da mettere alla prova più il ragionamento che dati mnemonici. Un’ampia appendice fornisce risposte dettagliate alle domande. Ad ogni capitolo sono stati aggiunti gli obiettivi formativi e vari punti nel testo sono stati estesi per spiegarne meglio il signifi cato. Le quattordici lezioni da 50 minuti su You-Tube sono tratte dal materiale presentato in questo testo e hanno riscontrato il favore degli studenti. La URL è: http://meded.ucsd.edu/ifp/jwest/resp_phys/index.html.Nonostante queste nuove caratteristiche, gli obiettivi del libro non sono cambiati. Per prima cosa, il libro è destinato agli studenti di medicina e di materie sanitarie. Come tale sarà normalmente usato insieme a un corso di lezioni, come avviene all’UCSD. Infatti, la prima edizione è stata scritta perché ritenevo che allora non ci fosse alcun libro adatto per il primo anno del corso di fi siologia.In secondo luogo, il libro è stato scritto come un ripasso per i medici interni e per i colleghi di pneumologia, anestesiologia e medicina interna, specialmente per prepararli agli esami di abilitazione e ad altri esami. Qui le esigenze sono piuttosto diverse. Il lettore ha familiarità con l’argomento generale, ma ha bisogno di rinfrescarsi la memoria su vari argomenti e i molteplici diagrammi didattici sono particolarmente importanti.Può essere utile aggiungere qualche parola su come il libro si integri con le lezioni per gli studenti del primo anno di medicina alla UCSD. Le lezioni di fi siologia respiratoria sono solo dodici di circa 50 minuti, integrate da due esercitazioni, tre discussioni a piccoli gruppi e una sessione di revisione con l’intera classe. Le lezioni seguono strettamente i singoli capitoli del libro, con la maggior parte dei capitoli che corrispondono a una sola lezione. Le eccezioni sono il Capitolo 5, che ha due lezioni (una su scambio normale di gas, ipoventilazione e shunt; un’altra sul diffi cile argomento del rapporto tra ventilazione e perfusione); il Capitolo 6, che ha due lezioni (una sul trasporto di gas nel sangue e un’altra sull’equilibrio acido-base); il Capitolo 7, che ha due lezioni (sulla statica e sulla dinamica). Non ci sono lezioni sul Capitolo 10, “Prove di funzionalità polmonare”, perché questo non fa parte del tema centrale del corso. È incluso in parte per il suo interesse e in parte per la sua importanza per chi lavora nei laboratori di funzionalità respiratoria.Questa edizione è stata aggiornata in numerose aree, compresi scambi di gas tra sangue e tessuto, meccanica, controllo della ventilazione e sistema respiratorio sotto stress. Oltre alle risposte alle domande a scelta multipla, l’appendice B contiene le discussioni delle risposte alle domande, comprendendo le nuove domande aggiunte ai casi clinici. Sono stati fatti grandi sforzi per mantenere il libro snello, nonostante le tentazioni enormi di renderlo più corposo. Qualche volta gli studenti di medicina si chiedono se il libro è troppo superfi ciale. Non è così. Se gli specializzandi in pneumologia che iniziano il loro tirocinio in un’unità di terapia intensiva capissero completamente tutto il materiale sullo scambio dei gas e sulla meccanica respiratoria, il mondo sarebbe un posto migliore.Molti studenti e insegnanti hanno scritto per chiedere spiegazioni su enunciazioni del libro o per suggerire miglioramenti. Noi rispondiamo personalmente a ogni punto che è stato sollevato e apprezziamo molto questi contributi. John B. Westjwest@health.ucsd.eduAndrew M. Luksaluks@uw.edu

Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy. Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications

a cura di Nico de Vries, Ottavio Piccin

editore: Thieme

pagine: 148

The definitive resource on the innovative use of DISE for obstructive sleep apnea Obstructive sleep apnea is the most prevalent sleep-related breathing disorder, impacting an estimated 1.36 billion people worldwide. In the past, OSA was almost exclusively treated with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), however, dynamic assessment of upper airway obstruction with Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy (DISE) has been instrumental in developing efficacious alternatives. Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications by Nico de Vries, Ottavio Piccin, Olivier Vanderveken, and Claudio Vicini is the first textbook on DISE written by world-renowned sleep medicine pioneers. Twenty-four chapters feature contributions from an impressive group of multidisciplinary international experts. Foundational chapters encompass indications, contraindications, informed consent, organization and logistics, patient preparation, and drugs used in DISE. Subsequent chapters focus on treatment outcomes, the role of DISE in therapeutic decision making and upper airway stimulation, pediatric sleep endoscopy, craniofacial syndromes, advanced techniques, and more. Key Highlights Comprehensive video library highlights common and rare DISE findings A full spectrum of sleep disordered breathing and OSA topics, from historic to future perspectives Insightful clinical pearls on preventing errors and managing complications including concentric and epiglottis collapse Discussion of controversial DISE applications including oral appliances and positional and combination therapies This unique book is essential reading for otolaryngology residents, fellows, and surgeons. Clinicians in other specialties involved in sleep medicine will also benefit from this reference, including pulmonologists, neurologists, neurophysiologists, maxillofacial surgeons, and anesthesiologists. This book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.
