    Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users

    Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users Lowest new price: $32.94
    Lowest used price: $25.19
    List price: $43.00
    Author: Committee for the Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users
    Brand: Brand: National Academies Press

    NIOSH and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) share responsibility for overseeing respiratory protection in the workplace and have established regulations for this purpose. Specifically, NIOSH has issued regulations which define respirator testing and certification. OSHA has issued regulations which define conditions under which employers are required to maintain respiratory protection programs in general industry, shipyards, marine terminals, and construction.

    In 2005, NIOSH contracted with the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to study the NIOSH-sponsored Anthrotech study along with its supporting information and reports, and to examine and report on the adequacy and relevance of the study protocol, the analyses conducted, the resulting anthropometric dataset, and the appropriateness of the respirator fit-test panels derived from the new dataset.

    Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users focuses on the establishment of the scientific base required for certification standards of respirators, not their use in the workplace. This report describes and analyzes the anthropometric measurements performed by Anthrotech for its NIOSH-sponsored study. This report looks at the survey methods used by Anthrotech in the study, and examines how Anthrotech analyzed its data to derive fit-test panels and suggests some ways that analysis could be improved. This report discusses future directions, pointing toward further analyses of the data and offers suggestions for moving from research to practice.

    Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (Developmental Perspectives in Psychiatry)

    Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (Developmental Perspectives in Psychiatry) Lowest new price: $53.85
    Lowest used price: $5.10
    List price: $125.00

    Tuberous Sclerosis is a genetic disease characterized by lesions of the skin and central nervous system, seizures, and sometimes sever mental retardation. Infants with this disease may appear overactive, autistic, or socially impaired. Because tuberous sclerosis involves abnormal cellular differentiation, aberrant neuronal migration, and excessive cell proliferation, this thoroughly revised edition will be of interest to a wide range of professionals involved in the study of biological mechanisms underlying many genetically determined neurological disorders.

    Superficial Esophageal Neoplasm: Pathology, Diagnosis, and Therapy

    Superficial Esophageal Neoplasm: Pathology, Diagnosis, and Therapy Lowest new price: $137.40
    Lowest used price: $46.47
    List price: $199.00
    Brand: Brand: Springer

    This book, containing the proceedings of the 2000 Kyoto Symposium on Esophageal Cancer, is an important contribution for all types of physicians interested in both squamous and adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. The volume has great legitimacy and relevance. The symposia hosted by Professor Masayuki Imamura brought together the leaders in several disciplines from Japan with other acknowledged authorities from Europe, the United States, Australia, and other parts of Asia. Japan has long been a leader in making advances in understanding the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, for several decades originally led by Professor Komei Nakayama and his students. It is now clear that Japanese are also beginning to suffer from esophageal adenocarcinoma and Barrett's columnar lined epithelium, thus enabling the Japanese to formulate studies on the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment for the full spectrum of esophageal neoplasms. The authoritativeness of these proceedings is established not only by the long tradi­ tion of Japanese leadership in the field but by the contributions of the principal leaders from the Nakayama school participating in the honorary faculty and local scientific committee.

    Venous Thromboembolism: Prevention and Treatment

    Venous Thromboembolism: Prevention and Treatment Lowest new price: $95.99
    Lowest used price: $65.21
    List price: $189.00
    Brand: Kunio Shirato

    Pulmonary thromboembolism in Japan is currently associated with a high mortality rate and remains a concern for patients and medical staff alike. Moreover, as the mechanisms of the condition have been elucidated, it has become clear that much work needs to be done in the field to achieve acceptable results in this country. Thus, Japan has regularly played host to the International Symposium on Pulmonary Thromboembolism . At the most recent symposium, in Sendai, the epidemiology and the treatment of pulmonary thromboembolism, traveler's thrombosis, and the prevention of deep vein thromboembolism were discussed, particularly with reference to the differences between Japan and Western countries. The fruits of the collaboration between that assembly of international specialists can be found in this collection of work. It provides an in-depth look at the current concepts that guide the treatment and prevention of the disease, and at the problem areas that must be improved upon.

    Lung cancer remains a major cause of cancer deaths throughout the world. It is an extremely lethal neoplasm: 80-90% of patients who develop lung cancer will die of their disease. The purpose of this book is to update cancer specialists, pulmonary physicians, thoracic surgeons and general practitioners about the many recent advances in the treatment, prevention and biology of lung cancer. Despite the overall poor prognosis for patients, a number of new chemotherapeutic drugs and regimens have been developed which result in a clinically meaningful improvement in survival for patients with nonsmall cell lung carcinoma. Four chapters in this book are devoted to reviewing these new drugs and drug combinations (paclitaxel, docetaxel, vinorelbine, gemcitabine, topoisomerase inhibitors). Advances in the management of locally advanced nonsmall cell and small cell lung cancer are considered, including combined-modality treatments using chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy. Results of recent trials involving chemoprevention agents are also reported. Finally, the latest progress in understanding the molecular biology of this disease, and how it might impact on the clinical management of lung cancer patients, is discussed.
