Organic Psychiatry : The Psychological Consequences Ofcerebral Disorder

Organic Psychiatry : The Psychological Consequences Ofcerebral Disorder Lowest used price: $1,484.75

This classic single-author text has been extensively revised and updated. As in previous editions it provides a comprehensive review of cognitive, emotional and behavioural consequences of cerebral disorder and their manifestations in clinical practice. In addition to standard neuropsychiatric conditions, the subject matter encompasses endocrine, metabolic and toxic disorders with respect to their impact on brain function. Extensive new sections have been added to take into account recent theoretical and clinical developments, particularly in chapters on dementias and toxic disorders, and in reference to the expanding range of rarer neurodegenerative disorders. The problems of HIV infection receive extensive coverage as well as the accumulating evidence pointing to a neuropsychiatric basis for schizophrenia. Advances in brain imaging are detailed as are salient discoveries in the fields of molecular biology and molecular genetics. Finally, many new references have been added.

Acid and Basics: A Guide to Understanding Acidbase Disorders

Acid and Basics: A Guide to Understanding Acidbase Disorders Lowest new price: $6.95
Lowest used price: $4.43
List price: $19.50
Author: Jerome Lowenstein

Acid-base metabolism is of fundamental clinical relevance and is one of the areas least well understood by medical students and physicians. The past 10 years have seen tremendous advances in knowledge regarding the molecular basis for membrane transport. This accessible book discusses in detail the intricacies of acid-base physiology, clearly describing how transport proteins delicately facilitate the movement of ions across the cell membranes and preserve the acid-base balance. This information permits an understanding of the physiologic basis for acid-base disorders not previously possible.


Hemodiafiltration (Contributions to Nephrology, Vol. 158)

Hemodiafiltration (Contributions to Nephrology, Vol. 158) Lowest new price: $8.86
Lowest used price: $45.15
List price: $146.00
Brand: Brand: S Karger Pub

The application of hemodiafiltration has been restricted until recently, when a broader clinical application has been made possible due to evidence from large studies and clinical investigations. This book provides an updated review of the evolution, advances and recent results achieved by hemodiafiltration in the clinical arena. The first part is devoted to historical notes and an outline of the evolution of different forms of hemodiafiltration, made possible by technological developments in the fields of membranes, machines and fluids. The next section describes the theoretical rationale for hemodiafiltration, providing a detailed analysis of the involved mass separation processes, the hydraulic properties of the dialyzers, fluid mechanics and crossfiltration in hollow fiber hemodialyzers. An outline of different hemodiafiltration techniques, also reporting peculiar transport mechanisms and related technology, is given next, and a section on the clinical effects of hemodiafiltration concludes this book. Including different technologies, the publication offers a complete overview of the technical and clinical possibilities provided by hemodiafiltration in its widest concept, ranging from the molecular basis to the most practical application. It will be a valuable tool for the implementation of hemodiafiltration in daily practice aimed at beginners and experts, scientists and physicians, students and senior faculty members alike.

The Crush Syndrome (and Lessons Learned from the Marmara Earthquake)

The Crush Syndrome (and Lessons Learned from the Marmara Earthquake) Lowest new price: $7.21
Lowest used price: $91.00
List price: $51.00
Author: M.S. Sever
Brand: Brand: S Karger Pub

ARF induced by traumatic rhabdomyolysis and crush syndrome is a well-known complication occurring in the wake of natural or manmade disasters. As a matter of fact, it is the second most frequent cause of death, following the direct traumatic impact. Early recognition of the crush syndrome and rapid initiation of fluid replacement is essential as this can dramatically reduce the incidence of ARF. After the Marmara earthquake of 1999, the Turkish Society of Nephrology, in collaboration with the Renal Disaster Relief Task Force of the International Society of Nephrology, prepared special questionnaires to obtain patient data and follow-up information to analyze the extent of the nephrological problems. This book is based on the 639 cases consequently documented, constituting an unprecedented collection of first-hand experience on crush syndrome-related ARF following earthquakes. In addition to the data / analysis gained from the Marmara earthquake, each chapter also summarizes classical information on crush syndrome. In every major natural catastrophe, a rapid, appropriate and effective international response is essential to minimize losses and be able to adequately treat victims. This can be achieved only by rational planning and the establishment of an infrastructure composed of trained personnel, equipment, supplies and transportation that can be mobilized at a few hours’ notice is essential. This book has been written with the intent to make use of the experiences made after the Marmara earthquake to save more lives in similar future disasters.
