Mrs Smith was prescribed Flucloxacillin despite being penicillin allergic, and suffered an anaphylactic reaction. Her husband now wishes to speak to you. You were not present at the time and you are not sure of what happened, however, he demands to speak to you as you are a doctor and part of the team looking after her. What do you do? These 96 invaluable flashcards thoroughly test OSCE candidates on correct procedure for a wealth of topics from taking blood to managing advanced life support, scrubbing for theatre to breaking bad news. Each topic is presented in an easy-to-read table, detailing best practice, including pertinent questions, tests to perform, possible responses and suspected diagnoses. Expertly laid out, the small, A5 format makes for easy handling - ideal for revision and self-examination.
As in previous years, the editors have selected topics which are rapidly developing and for which there is a need to communicate new information. For Roma 99 they have chosen nine topics, each subject to a pair of presentations, the first on new disease mechanisms and the second on recent development in clinical management.
Community medicine is one of the most important aspect of the medical system. It deals with various facets of health and health-related problems. Though the basic pattern of community medicine remains same but there are day-to-day changes in data, technology as well as health hazards which lead to rapid evolvement in the arena of community medicine. Thus, in this book, it has been tried to make the study of community medicine comprehensive along with homeopathic approach on each aspect. For the sake of revision & mental Sample Questions Papers have been included at the end of the book. We hope "Textbook of Community Medicine" will fill the long-felt need for a book which specifically covers the syllabus prescribed by Central Council of Homeopathy for students of homeopathy.
John Libbey Eurotext continues to publish the proceedings of the gastroenterology seminars taught by leading European specialists and organised by the European Association for Gastroenterology and Endoscopy (EAGE). The aim of the book is to describe major clinical and therapeutic progress observed during 2002: gastrooesophageal reflux disease, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, colon cancer, liver cancer.
The opening chapter examines the role of different reported oviduct factors in modulating gamete function, fertilisation and early embryo development. The guidelines of occupational post-exposure prophylaxis are reviewed in order to help guide clinicians in managing occupational exposure to human immunodeficiency virus. Next, the authors discuss how the detection of bacterial genes in the genome of eukaryotic cells has provided evidence for gene exchange between bacteria and eukaryotic cells, mainly from bacteria to fungi. The important structural information for potent and selective HDAC3, a zinc-dependent histone deacetylases isoform, inhibitors along with the structure-activity relationships of a handful of molecules may enrich the knowledge of academics and industry personnel. As such, this compilation provides a deep insight into HDAC3 and related inhibitors. In the penultimate chapter, the authors assess the algorithm of cell dead mechanism in spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage and how the impact of intraperitoneal celecoxib treatment can increase the survival of neural stem cells. The concluding chapter focuses on how foreign protein accumulation in vacuoles proves to be a fruitful production strategy for for biological and industrial enzymes.
Convergence-based research approaches are critical in solving many scientific challenges, which frequently draw on large teams of collaborators from multiple disciplines. The 2014 report Convergence: Facilitating Transdisciplinary Integration of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Beyond describes the term aEUROoeconvergenceaEURO as a multidisciplinary approach that melds divergent areas of expertise to form conclusions that are inaccessible otherwise. However, a convergence-based approach involves hybrid systems of people, buildings, and instruments, which pose complex structural and managerial challenges. In October 23aEURO"24, 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop to explore efforts to promote cultures that support convergence-based approaches to research. The 2014 report served as a foundation for this workshop, allowing participants to further explore convergence as a valuable and adaptable approach to organizing research. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
Are ultraviolet rays dangerous? This is the question addressed by the leading dermatological experts who compare their wide clinical experience in this book. It has now been established that ultraviolet rays provoke erythema and can cause considerable damage to blood vessels. But what is their precise impact on the occurrence of premature ageing and cancer of the skin, and other serious consequences? The specialists contributing to this work report on their observations and give objective and reasoned opinions on this question. Their explanations are rounded out by many colour illustrations and diagrams.
Volume 140 opens by discussing vascular endothelial growth factor, an attractive target for antiangiogenic therapy for glioblastoma. Although bevacizumab, a humanized anti-vascular endothelial growth factor antibody, improves the progression-free survival of patients with glioblastoma, prolonged overall survival has been attained only in few patients with a proneural type of glioblastoma. As such, bevacizumab is increasingly used to treat newly diagnosed and recurrent glioblastoma. Bevacizumab selectively inhibits glioblastoma growth by targeting membrane-bound vascular endothelial growth factor, inhibiting angiogenesis and thus halting tumor growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor plays a major role in wound healing, with upregulation starting on day three and levels remaining high up to 24 weeks after wound creation. The authors discuss how, to avoid postoperative wound complications following neurosurgical procedures, perioperative management is indispensable. As perioperative preparation, shaving or minimal hair removal should be avoided to prevent minor trauma to the scalp and surgical-site infection. Excess electrocautery coagulation and metal skin clips are efficacious during skin incision for preventing blood loss, but might cause skin edge necrosis and alopecia. Next, the authors briefly summarize the actions of melatonin in a broad range of effects with a significant regulatory influence over many of the protection processes against Fe overload effects. Melatonin is a ubiquitous compound present in bacteria and eukaryotes, which in vertebrates, is released at night from the pineal gland to induce sleep. Quantitative foundations of continuous non-invasive prenatal screening are explored in the following chapter. The mosaicism interval and the interval-based estimate of the degree ofmosaicism are introduced, and the uncertainty of the estimation of the degree of mosaicismcan be quantified by the width of the mosaicism interval. Continuing, the authors emphasize the implication of SRY-related box factors in male sex determination and differentiation, leading to fertility. The production of spermatozoa in adulthood requires a coordination in the regulation of gene expression by a multitude of SRY-related box transcription factors within the testis. The authors perform an overview of the mechanisms of action of SRY-related box transcription factors throughout male development contributing to fertility. The objective of the penultimate study is to evaluate, in vitro, the coagulating, cytotoxic, oxidizing and antioxidant effects caused by the Bothrops jararacussu and B. moojeni crude venoms. The crude venoms protein profiles are characterized, and the biological effects are evaluated and compared between the species. Among the activities triggered by Crotalus durissus terrificus snake venom, coagulation is both intriguing and contradictory since the venom contains in its composition both coagulant and anticoagulant precursor proteins. The concluding work describes the in vitro effects of crude venom and purified proteins from Crotalus durissus terrificus snake venom as they affect coagulation factors of the extrinsic, intrinsic, and common clotting pathways in citrated human plasma.
This book is a question book that offers single best answers (SBA) to 300 questions related to topics in general medicine. In order to further enhance knowledge and understanding, detailed answers have been included. This book is designed as both a revision and learning aid, with questions being set in a mock-examination format which can be completed under timed conditions.The primary target audience of this book is clinical medical students who are revising for examinations. However, questions have been planned in a way that a fairly large secondary target audience will be reached as well. This includes students who are transitioning from pre-clinical to clinical.As recently qualified medical graduates who have had the option of both online and book-based questions, the authors feel that students often prefer a Single Best Answers book that aids them in advancing their medical knowledge rather than online question banks, which can often have very repetitive and one-dimensional questions. Having questions in paper format replicates examination conditions better than online question banks and, therefore, offers a more realistic revision experience. In addition, though SBAs are becoming increasingly more common as an examination style with medical schools, there are very few SBA question books available. As such, medical students will find this book highly useful in the preparation for their examinations.

This book is the first of its kind to guide final-year medical undergraduates in performing self-assessment in examination-style modified essay questions. It will also be useful for junior residents to evaluate their own knowledge and approaches in internal medicine, as well as senior doctors in providing inspiration and ideas for setting examination questions.Comprehensive solutions, as well as possible answers that candidates may give, are provided at the end of the book. Useful examination-oriented and practice-based tips for selected solutions are given as well.
With over 1000 UKCAT practice questions (including a full mock exam), in-depth explanations, and comprehensive tips and techniques spanning over 600 pages, this book constitutes an ideal preparation tool for the UKCAT, helping candidates save time, retain focus and optimise their score. Fully compliant with the new-style UKCAT exam for 2017 entry, the book shows how to approach each type of question (abstract, verbal and quantitative reasoning together with situational judgement) and helps candidates familiarise themselves with all the potential traps that can be laid by the examiners. The overwhelming range of exercises that it contains will enable all UKCAT candidates to refine and optimise their technique to answer questions under strict time constraints. This book replicates the breadth and depth of the different types of questions that can be asked in the live UKCAT test and the spectrum of difficulties that it covers (from normal to stretching), which makes it an ideal preparation tool for all those who want to achieve a high score and maximise their chances of getting into the medical school of their choice.
Every two years, the world's leading specialists meet to exchange information on the most recent advances in understanding metals and the part they play in treating some diseases, especially cancer. Most of the elements in our environment are metals. Some are essential for life, such as copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, nickel and zinc; others are toxic, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. This book aims to help advance our knowledge of the role of metal ions in a number of fields in biology and medicine. It reproduces the papers given at the International Symposium on Metal Ions in Biology and Medicine organised in Munich in May 1998.
John Libbey Eurotext is continuing to publish the proceedings of these courses in gastroenterology organised in Europe by the world's leading specialists. The July course will cover bacterial gastrointestinal infections, which doctors are increasingly called upon to treat. For example diarrhoea, the best known of these conditions, is no longer specific to the developing world and many bacterial infections are now appearing in western countries. Biological and clinical data are presented here in a synoptic work for young practitioners, edited by EAGE president Professor Galmiche. Latest knowledge about the mechanisms of these infections, their interactions with other systems and their medium- and long-term treatments has enabled specialists to lay the first foundations for future therapies, in particular treatments for and vaccines against diarrhoea.
