Counseling the Terminally Ill: Sharing the Journey (Series in Death, Dying, and Bereavement)

Counseling the Terminally Ill: Sharing the Journey (Series in Death, Dying, and Bereavement) Lowest new price: $62.68
Lowest used price: $13.96
List price: $51.95
Author: George S. Lair
Brand: Brand: Taylor n Francis

Placing a focus on the spiritual needs of death and dying, the theme of this book is that the focus of counselling with people who are dying should be on the psychospiritual aspects of death and dying.

It is based on two assumptions - that death and anxiety, not pain, are the most critical issues for the dying, and that the time of dying is an opportunity for growth and transformation.

The author believes that it is imperative for counselling professionals to realize that at this time understanding and caring are primary.

Electrocardiography of Clinical Arrhythmias

Electrocardiography of Clinical Arrhythmias Lowest new price: $84.77
Lowest used price: $65.00
List price: $106.95
Author: Charles Fisch

Because arrhythmias can present in so many different forms, theonly way to be certain of an interpretation is to understand theunderlying ECG mechanism of arrhythmia. This is especiallyimportant in choosing a management strategy, as similar arrhythmiasof differing origin may have vastly different therapies/treatments.Unfortunately, standard teaching methods can seem to divorce thetheoretical knowledge required for diagnosis from the hands-onreading of ECGs.

To achieve a balance of practicality and competency, the twoparts of this book are equally divided between concrete example anddidactic theory. Section I provides multiple ECG readings of themost commonly encountered simple and complex arrhythmias, andincludes differential diagnosis where appropriate. These readingsare presented with a minimum of theory, and are repetitivelypresented in multiple permutations, as they would be encountered inECG reading room or on the wards. Section II provides a morein-depth discussion of ECG mechanisms and arrhythmogenesis.Attention is focused on the relevant underlying electrophysiologyand the deductive processes used to reach the diagnoses of complexarrhythmias.

This book can serve as a quick and handy reference forsystematic, rule-based arrhythmic diagnoses, as well as anauthoritative teaching text for learning the underlying theory andmechanics. It will be of great interest to students and cliniciansat all levels, including cardiologists, electrophysiologists, andothers who care for patients with cardiovascular disease, ICU andER staff, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, andsurgeons.


Palliative Care: The Nursing Role

Palliative Care: The Nursing Role Lowest new price: $50.46
Lowest used price: $8.98
List price: $72.95
Author: Jean Lugton

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Palliative Care: The Nursing Role is an introductory text for nurses and other health care professionals who deliver palliative care across a range of settings. It lays a clear foundation of knowledge focusing on the needs and perspectives of patients and families who face the challenge of advanced, incurable illness. The style is highly accessible yet challenges readers to analyze key issues that present within palliative care. Covering the wide range of care provision in hospices, hospitals and patients' homes, the book draws widely from practice based examples to explain and expand upon theoretical issues. Research evidence underpins each of the chapters. Guided activities encourage readers to reflect, in a focused way, on their clinical experience and current practice. This new edition has been fully updated to reflect ongoing developments and shifting trends in palliative care education and practice. It will suit the needs of both pre and post-qualifying students seeking to develop their knowledge and is well suited to practitioners working within either generalist or specialist palliative care settings, or within acute or community settings as well as those studying a range of palliative care educational curricula. The authors have a wide range of experience in palliative care and all are actively engaged in practice and/or education.

  • A clear, broad-based approach offers a thorough introduction for the non-specialist nurse.
  • Written and edited by an experienced team of nurses working in this field, grounding it in current practice.
  • Learning outcomes listed at the start of each chapter aid learning and comprehension.
  • Reflective practice activities and an outline of CPD is especially useful for students working independently.
  • Case histories, recommended reading lists, and references provide a solid evidence base for clinically based practice and facilitate further study.
  • Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect changes in policy direction.
  • A new chapter on pain and symptom management.

Basics of Respiratory Mechanics and Artificial Ventilation (Topics in Anaesthesia and Critical Care)

Basics of Respiratory Mechanics and Artificial Ventilation (Topics in Anaesthesia and Critical Care) Lowest new price: $111.04
Lowest used price: $111.54
List price: $119.99
Brand: Brand: Springer

Management of the intensive care patient afflicted by respiratory insufficiency requires knowledge of the pathophysiological basis for altered functions. The etiology and therapy of pulmonary diseases, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are highly complex. While physiologists and pathophysiologists work prevalently with theoretical modes, clinicians employ sophisticated ventilation support technologies in the attempt to understand the pathophysiological mechanisms of the pulmonary diseases which can present with varying grades of severity. Despite the availability of advanced technologies it is common to personalize the treatment protocol according to the patient's physiologic structure.Given the complexity and difficulties of treating respiratory disease, a strong collaboration between clinicians and physiologists is of fundamtental importance.
