R3,603 Discovery Miles 36 030 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) continues to be one of the greatest challenges to critical care practitioners and one of the greatest threats to the survival of our patients. The choice of this topic for an issue of the PERSPECTIVES IN CRITICAL CARE INFECTIOUS DISEASES Series is therefore quite appropriate. Despite its importance, many areas of the management of ventilator-associated pneumonia remain controversial. We therefore are pleased to include contributions from experts and investigators offering different perspectives on some of these controversial areas.

R4,804 Discovery Miles 48 040 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Acute lung injury (ALI) impacts patient care in every ICU in the world. Our collective understanding of this condition has grown immensely over the past decade but morbidity and mortality remain unacceptably high. To enhance the understanding of clinicians and researchers, this book addresses the pathophysiology of acute lung injury from a molecular and cellular standpoint; includes animal models of acute lung injury and points to potential therapeutic advances based on scientific findings. It is a concise compendium of the multiple pathways, mechanisms and molecules involved in the pathophysiology of acute lung injury and is intended to help caregivers understand the process and thus care for patients more effectively.

Much research over the past 30 to 40 years has shown that the inflammatory response, while critical for host defense during microbial infection, may itself play a central role in the pathogenesis of sepsis. Although key mediators responsible for this injury have been identified, efforts clinically to augment our conventional antimicrobial and supportive therapies during sepsis with agents modulating the inflammatory response have been unsuccessful. As a result, the mortality associated with this lethal syndrome, especially when complicated by shock, has remained persistently high. Unfortunately, during this same period of time, the incidence of sepsis has accelerated as other fields of medicine have relied increasingly on therapies that predispose to infection. While frustrating, overall this experience in the field of sepsis has not been without value. Most importantly, it has helped define on several different levels the complexity of the septic patient. Recognizing and addressing this complexity as discussed by each of the contributors to Evolving Concepts in Sepsis and Septic Shock may now provide new inroads into the treatment of sepsis.

Reaching beyond traditional nutrition support The care of ICU patients has seen many improvements over the years, both with regard to technical aspects and supportive measures. The first part of this book analyzes nutritional support at various levels, ranging from the cell level to the whole-body aspect; drawing on recent prospective randomized studies, the authors propose a new approach for oral, enteral and/or parenteral nutrition. The second part underlines the interference between nutrition and outcome to reach recovery, giving to this field an increased importance for better short and long term management: The best glucose control, individualized nutritional support and the avoidance of harmful interferences is extensively discussed. The final part deals with patients suffering from multi-organ failure and the need for a better understanding of the interactions between disease and nutrition. Identification of the metabolic condition of the patient, existence or not of evidence-based medicine, expert opinion, treatment opportunities and the case manager recognizing threats are all integrated to reach the appropriate decision. This last part will help the reader to untangle the complexity of the ICU patient of the 21st century and to propose a personalized nutritional support process.

R10,746 Discovery Miles 107 460 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

by E.K. ZSIGMOND, M.D. Department of Anesthesiology University of Illinois Chicago U.S.A. It is, indeed, a distinct honor and privilege to be invited by the authors to write a preface to this monumental monograph, Regional Opioid Analgesia. Regional Opioid Analgesia is a colossal undertaking by Drs. De Castro, Meynadier and Zenz shortly after the introduction of this revolutionary approach to pain relief which opened a new epoch in analgesiology. This is, indeed, the first authentic and comprehensive textbook encompassing the current knowl edge on this novel approach to pain relief. We are indebted to the authors for introducing the new opioids to regional analgesia with the scientists, who de veloped the potent short and ultrashort acting opioids with high therapeutic indices, which many researchers dreamt about but never before materialized. The side effect liabilities of these new opioids are minute as compared to morphine and meperidine. Regional Opioid Analgesia could not have been more authentically written than by Drs. De Castro, Zenz and Meynadier, who have conducted daily clinical investigations on all known opioids for regional analgesia as well as for neurolept analgesia. Therein lies the great value of this monograph: it is the most authentic work on this topic."

R4,794 Discovery Miles 47 940 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Intensive Care Medicine has been continuously growing and expanding, culturally, technically and geographically. Monitoring and instrumentation are continuously improving and more and more hospitals are getting Intensive Care facilities. The costs have proportionally increased over the years, so that ICUs represent today a major cost for health structures. Since the available resources are limited, a real need is emerging to set the limits and indications of Intensive Care. It is understood that the problem not only involves medical considerations, but also ethical and economical aspects of the utmost importance. For the first time in Europe, this book edited by Reis Miranda and his colleagues tackles systematically the many structural aspects of the European Intensive Care. The organisation and financing of health care in the Old Continent is deeply different from the American one, and the results and consequent proposals obtained in the USA cannot simply be transferred to this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Weare extremely pleased to welcome this first European attempt to discuss the Intensive Care problem. It lays no claims to giving definite replies in a continuously developing field, but it will surely become the basis for future discussions and proposals. I am particularly happy that this work has mainly developed within the European Society of Intensive Care, whose final target is to ensure a common standard of therapy in our old Europe, beyond national differences. We warmly congratulate the authors, and I am sure that their work will find wide diffusion and consent.

Dr. G. M. Woerlee is well known in my department both as a clinician and teacher. Years ofexperience have taught him that the problems discussed here have as yet not been treated in this way in any single work. In my opinion there is a real need for such abook, not only for resident and specialist anaesthetists, but also among surgeons and internists, specialist and trainee. Management of a patient in the operating room is a matter of teamwork, and knowledge of the problems encountered is the basis of any mutual understanding The information which has been assembled and clearly presented in this book should prove to be of great assistance in guiding our patients though an important phase of their lives. Professor Dr. Joh. Spierdijk, Department of Anaesthesia, University Hospital of Leyden, The Netherlands. vii PREFACE Much of the literature being published in the field of anesthesiology today concerns a narrow, in-depth scrutiny of a specific area or anesthetic technique that does not provide the novice with an overview ofthe perioperativeperiod and the commoneveryday problems faced by the anesthetist. Dr G. M. Woerlee of the University of Leiden with his book, "Com mon Perioperative Problems and the Anaesthetist," has filled a void in the current anes thetic literature. Dr Woerlee reviews in a straightforward, no-frills manner problems routinely encountered during the perioperative period. Other anesthesia textbooks do not cover the material in quite the same logical, step-by-step fashion."

Prima traduzione italiana del famoso manuale del Massachusetts General Hospital (V edizione): un testo compatto, caratterizzato da autorevolezza, accuratezza e solidita dell'informazione. Il successo mondiale di questo manuale - presente, sin dalla prima edizione, nelle tasche dei camici non solo di studenti e specializzandi, ma anche di tantissimi specialisti - conferma la validita dell'impostazione e la qualita dei contenuti. Gli argomenti trattati consentono una visione completa e aggiornata delle tematiche affrontate quotidianamente nelle unita di terapia intensiva: oltre ai temi "classici", sono presentati gli aspetti piu specialistici, compresi il trattamento dei pazienti sottoposti a trapianto e i problemi etici legati all'interruzione delle cure e al fine vita. L'approccio clinico e posto in costante e stretta relazione con la fisiologia del paziente critico, fondamentale per operare scelte corrette in terapia intensiva. Questo testo, definito "guida multidisciplinare alla cura del paziente critico", non e destinato solo al personale medico e infermieristico delle unita di terapia intensiva, ma anche a tutti coloro che, pur non operandovi stabilmente, vengono coinvolti per consulenze (come chirurghi, internisti, ematologi e farmacisti ospedalieri) o per delicati compiti di assistenza (come fisioterapisti e logopedisti).

The science of neuroanaesthesia and neurointensive care is fascinating, and the amounts of experimental and clinical studies are overwhelming. Surely, everyone can surf Medline and other database systems in order to get information. If you, however, ask for head injury, cerebral ischaemia or barbiturate, you will get hun dreds, may be thousands of titles and even the same number of abstracts. The aims of this book are to review important experimental and clinical data with emphasis on up-dated references. The text within each issue and sub-issue systematically covers experimental and clinical data separately, and details con cerning cerebral blood flow, cerebral metabolism, intracranial pressure etc. are reviewed accordingly. In our survey of the literature we did not use Medline or other database sys tems systematically. Rather, we used available medical journals which covered the topics of anaesthesia, neuroanaesthesia and neurointensive care. In this way we hope that relevant literature is presented. On the other hand, we cannot exclude that some important issues are omitted. The book covers 12 topics. In three chapters methodology of CBF measure ments, regulation of CBF, and intracranial pressure are described. In the next 6 chapters inhalation anaesthetics, hypnotic agents, analgesics, muscular relaxants, drugs used for control of blood pressure, and the sitting position are reviewed. The last three chapters cover head injury, subarachnoid haemorrhage and cere bral ischaemia."

Learning how to use a mechanical ventilator can be very challenging and frightening for most residents and other health care students. Many books and articles have been published on this subject, but they often leave the reader confused because they are generally written for pulmonary/critical care specialists. However, most patients will need the same basic respiratory support and will have similar complications. In this book we provide background information and outline strategies for use of mechanical ventilation to make this advanced patient support easy to understand and apply. Use this handbook to learn the basics about mechanical ventilators and to enhance your ICU experience.

The creation of units dedicated to treating critically ill patients is a recent development in our hospitals. In Europe, the first 'modern' ICU was established in Copenhagen during the large polio epidemics in 1951-52. Since then, the ICU and intensive care as a field of highly specialised medical competencies have developed side by side. The demand for ICU resources is likely to increase considerably in the coming decades, not least as a consequence of the 'age pandemic' that is rapidly changing (population) demographics. This book focuses on the many different aspects around the organisation of modern intensive care. Discussions about the concepts of intensive care, its structure and processes are highlighted in over 50 chapters all written by international experts in intensive care medicine. The book comprises the following sections: Concepts; Structures, Monitoring & Personnel; Processes; Outcomes; and, Conclusion. All clinical personnel working in the ICU as well as managers of hospitals should read this book. It will hopefully set the modern 'ICU standard' and will thus be a tool in planning for the challenges we all will face treating critically ill patients in the future.

O ObivoV brac ?vV, eJ de teJcnh makrhv Life is short, the] art long -Hippocrates Pediatric Interviewing: A Practical, Relationship Based Approach by James Binder is filled with a unique blend of wisdom, experience, and evidence, which will serve as a guide and as a reminder that what comes first in the care of the patient is the language and the silences that are shared between patient and physician. The medical interview quickly establishes the type of caring relati- ship the two will share. In this age of electronic medical records, pay-forperformance, and evidence-based medicine it is easy to lose sight that medicine is fundamentally about one person who has knowledge and experience providing care for another individual who is asking for help. How the physician organizes his or her interactions has an important impact on the experience and o- comes for both the physician and for the patient. Dr. Binder presents a conceptual framework with which to approach interviewing and illustrates this framework with pr- tical examples from years of teaching and practice. Physicia- intraining will find this book filled with wisdom and much needed recommendations about how to approach the medical interview. For those of us who have been in practice a number of years, Dr. Binder's book can serve as a refreshing opportunity to reflect in detail about something many of us take for granted - the c- plexity of the medical interview."
