Cardio-Renal Clinical Challenges (Hardcover, 2015 ed.): David Goldsmith, Adrian Covic, Jonas Spaak Cardio-Renal Clinical Challenges (Hardcover, 2015 ed.)
David Goldsmith, Adrian Covic, Jonas Spaak
R4,806 Discovery Miles 48 060 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In modern medicine, the aging population is prone to many simultaneous cardiovascular (CV) risk factors which often produce co-incident pathology. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the interaction between Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), Diabetes and diverse CV diseases (CVD). This is a complex and challenging area, as the presence of CKD/diabetes promotes CVD while also complicating its treatment. The emergence of CKD as a public health priority is one of the most challenging problems of modern medicine. It is now solidly established that renal dysfunction portends a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular diseases remains the main cause of death in western societies and the amplification of the death risk conveyed by coexisting CKD, even though still poorly understood, appears considerable. The bidirectional link that associates renal and cardiovascular diseases, the high risk of the death signalled by their coexistence and the considerable epidemiological burden imposed by this link is at the basis of the emergence of a new discipline aiming at making the borders between nephrology and cardiovascular medicine even more permeable than before. The term Cardio-Renal Syndrome was coined around 5 years ago to try to formalize this link, and act as a stimulus to interaction between clinical teams, researchers and others to achieve better management and outcomes for all. This book takes clinical presentations and clinical problems as its base, and then discuss the evidence for best management of common clinical problems as well as the reasons for the complex interplay between the cardiac and renal systems. Moreover, it addresses the issue of organizing healthcare to maximize the opportunities for prevention and best healthcare economic returns, building on cutting edge initiatives at the Karolinska, Stockholm. The book will be of immediate value and interest to all cardiologists and renal physicians.

R1,579 Discovery Miles 15 790 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This concise book provides practical strategies to help nephrologists and endocrinologists correctly diagnose and treat the various forms of parathyroid disease they may encounter in the management of chronic kidney disease. Each chapter deals with various topics related to parathyroid gland anatomy and physiology, as well as diagnostic tests and their particularities in regard to chronic disease. The book highlights the range of therapies used for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism, and critically analyses the latest research in the field. Providing an up-to-date review of the current literature, including innovations in both medical and surgical treatment and current indications for parathyroidectomy, this practice-oriented book is an excellent resource for nephrologists, endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons and family medicine physicians.

The past two decades have seen an explosion in research on the synthesis of sesquiterpenes, an important class of hydrocarbons commonly found in oils, resins, and balsams. Volume Eleven in The Total Synthesis of Natural Products series continues to review this dynamic area of chemistry. It features systematic, A-to-Z coverage of sesquiterpenes synthesized between 1979-1994-a sesquidecade.
Focusing on bicyclic and tricyclic compounds in sesquiterpene synthesis, this authoritative work complements Volume Ten's coverage of acyclic and monocyclic sesquiterpenes. The authors comb through the hundreds of sesquiterpene syntheses already developed, consolidating the multitude of research papers, and providing extensive references as well as author and subject indexes. To keep the presentation manageable, they emphasize literature where natural products were prepared, leaving out natural ring systems or compounds whose structures were misassigned.
This volume presents multiple syntheses of the same compound in chronological order, making the various steps of the synthetic strategy easily accessible. In addition, it addresses one of the most important developments in sesquiterpene research, namely the increase in compound targets prepared in an optically active form. And while syntheses of racemates are not specifically marked, legends for synthesis schemes producing optically active compounds include their absolute configurations, signs of optical rotation, or both.
An important resource for organic chemists, pharmaceutical and medicinal chemists, natural prod-ucts chemists, and biochemists, The Total Synthesis of Natural Products offers valuable insight into the structure andmakeup of sesquiterpenes while serving as a practical tool for locating any of the major classes of sesquiterpene compounds.
An invaluable guide for the chemist interested in natural products.
Providing a fascinating, comprehensive look at sesquiterpene synthesis, Volume Eleven of The Total Synthesis of Natural Products reviews sesquiterpenes synthesized in the period 1979-1994, continuing the coverage begun with Volume Ten in the series (see below). This authoritative work:
* Focuses on bicyclic and tricyclic sesquiterpenes.
* Explains the structure and makeup of this important class of hydrocarbons.
* Serves as a useful, practical tool for researchers interested in locating any of the major classes of sesquiterpene compounds.
* Provides multiple syntheses of the same compound chronologically, clearly showing the evolution of the synthetic strategy.
Also available . . .THE TOTAL SYNTHESIS OF NATURAL PRODUCTS Volume Ten, Edited by David Goldsmith.
A complement to this work, Volume Ten examines compounds with acyclic and monocyclic ring structures in sesquiterpene synthesis. 1997 (0-471-59679-5) 173 pp.

Have you ever thought about the fact that a craftsman has more and better tools to solve challenges on the job than the leader of a business or organization does? Leadership tools are usually defined as computers, spreadsheets, data, and even experience, but in reality, leaders need thinking tools that are hard to come by, so they find themselves hunting and pecking for answers in books, at seminars, through on-the-job training programs, from mentors, and at business schools, and still, they're left with gaps. Surely, most leaders are good at what they do, but the daily challenges of their jobs, like accelerating growth, increasing productivity, driving innovation, doing more with less, and balancing work with life don't come with some sort of leadership toolkit...until now.
In Paid to Think, international consultant David Goldsmith presents his groundbreaking approach to leadership and management based on research revealing the twelve specific activities that all leaders perform on a daily basis, and he provides you with each activity's accompanying tools and instructions proven to boost your performance and that of your entire organization.

This is a comprehensive, authoritative, yet user-friendly guide to renal disease. More than any other subdivision of internal medicine successful nephrological practice is dependent on other specialities. The kidneys are affected by many systemic diseases. There is increased incidence of cardiovascular and neoplastic disease in patients with renal failure. Expertise is needed in renal imaging, arterial intervention and renal histopathological examination. Reflecting all these elements, the authors have compiled a practical handbook to help physicians in practice and training to diagnose and manage patients with renal disease. The format of this book follows the stages of renal disease beginning with presenting symptoms and syndromes. It goes on to cover inherited renal diseases, glomerular and systemic diseases, acute and chronic renal failure, dialysis and renal transplantation. The Handbook is of value to physicians and trainees in nephrology and internal medicine, and to medical students in their clinical years.
