Boost your skills in planning and managing physical rehabilitation! Neuroscience: Fundamentals for Rehabilitation, 5th Edition provides a practical guide to the nervous system and how it affects the practice of physical and occupational therapy. Case studies and first-person stories from people with neurologic disorders make it easier to apply your knowledge to the clinical setting. New to this edition are new chapters on neuroanatomy imaging and neurologic examination techniques. Written by noted PT educator Laurie Lundy-Ekman, this book uses evidence-based research to help you understand neurologic disorders and treat clients who have physical limitations due to nervous system damage or disease. Logical, systems approach to neuroscience makes it easier to master complex information and provides a framework for conducting a neurologic examination and evaluation. A clinical perspective of neuroscience is provided through case studies, personal stories written by patients, and summaries of key features of neurologic disorders and the body systems they affect. Five sections — Overview of Neurology, Neuroscience at the Cellular Level, Development of the Nervous System, Vertical Systems, and Regions — first show how neural cells operate, and then allow you to apply your knowledge of neuroscience. Emphasis on topics critical to physical rehabilitation includes coverage of abnormal muscle tone, chronic pain, control of movement, and differential diagnosis of dizziness. Hundreds of color-coded illustrations show body structures and functions across systems. Clinical Notes case studies demonstrate how neuroscience knowledge may be applied to clinical situations. Pathology boxes provide a quick summary of the features of neurologic disorders commonly encountered in rehabilitation practice. New! Neuroimaging and Neuroanatomy Atlas chapter includes MRI and CT images. NEW! Neurologic Disorders and the Neurologic Examination chapter provides detailed descriptions and photographs of techniques. NEW! Diagnostic Clinical Reasoning boxes help you develop the ability to recognize patterns of signs and symptoms associated with specific diagnoses. NEW! Updated content reflects the most current research findings. NEW! Reader-friendly approach converts long, technical chapters into smaller, more accessible chapters. NEW! Reorganized chapters progress from the cellular view to the systems view to the regional view.

Personalized Computational Hemodynamics: Models, Methods, and Applications for Vascular Surgery and Antitumor Therapy offers practices and advances surrounding the multiscale modeling of hemodynamics and their personalization with conventional clinical data. Focusing on three physiological disciplines, readers will learn how to derive a suitable mathematical model and personalize its parameters to account for pathologies and diseases. Written by leading experts, this book mirrors the top trends in mathematical modeling with clinical applications. In addition, the book features the major results of the "Research group in simulation of blood flow and vascular pathologies" at the Institute of Numerical Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Two important features distinguish this book from other monographs on numerical methods for biomedical applications. First, the variety of medical disciplines targeted by the mathematical modeling and computer simulations, including cardiology, vascular neurology and oncology. Second, for all mathematical models, the authors consider extensions and parameter tuning that account for vascular pathologies. Examines a variety of medical disciplines targeted by mathematical modeling and computer simulation Discusses how the results of numerical simulations are used to support clinical decision-making Covers hemodynamics relating to various subject areas, including vascular surgery and oncological tumor treatments

Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is an exciting and still developing diagnostic tool that has added significantly to the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer and other thoracic diseases. Co-authored by one of the technology's pioneers, this book helps the reader to use EBUS to diagnose and stage lung cancer and a variety of different tumours of the chest region. The second edition of Endobronchial Ultrasonography covers all of the standard techniques and the very latest developments and guidelines involved in EBUS, combining two common procedures, bronchoscopy and real-time ultrasonography, allowing physicians to obtain precise biopsies of lymph nodes and masses within the chest cavity.

Oxford Case Histories in Problem-Orientated Clinical Microbiology and Infection contains over 45 well structured cases, providing comprehensive coverage of the diagnostic and management dilemmas in clinical microbiology and infectious diseases. Each case comprises of a brief patient history with relevant clinical examination findings, thus insuring the reader is aware of how to confirm a diagnosis rapidly, with reference throughout to laboratory techniques, advice on therapy, epidemiological features, and areas which can be controversial. The cases discussed include common and important pathogens, infections, and serious conditions due to risk of onward spread. Divided by main organ systems, the book also includes a section on systemic infections, and miscellaneous cases which don't fit neatly into one category. The text is complimented by over 50 clinical photographs and laboratory illustrations. Each case includes a concise list of further reading to aid learning and understanding. The format of the book is thought provoking, and helps to improve critical thinking and interpretative skills. It is a perfect self-assessment tool for clinical microbiology and infectious diseases postgraduate trainees. It will also be of interest to medical professionals working in critical care and public health.
