Description : If ever a book could be called timely, this is it. Sleep disorders medicine has made rapid advances in recent years. The field has attained growing respectability, with a textbook recently published, a congressionally man dated National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, and a growing public awareness of the importance of sleep disorders. However, this rapid growth has made the discrepancy among certain components of the field all the more obvious. Thus, we find that patients who complain of insom nia are almost never in the majority of those seen in sleep disorders centers, in spite of the well-known fact that the prevalence of such individ uals in our society is by far the largest. Current articles on insomnia abound, but they tend to be facile recitations of diagnosis and impractical global recommendations for treat ment, without providing the essential details. Indeed, the clinical profes sions really do not know what to do about insomnia. This is reflected in a number of observations I have made in the recent past. For example, the majority of individuals who complain of insomnia take alcohol, aspirin, over-the-counter medications, hot baths, and a host of other nostrums, but rarely seek a physician. In the unlikely event that a physician is consulted, he is likely to prescribe a sleep medication but without any particular consistency, or any clear instructions on its use.

Description : Chinese internal medicine is the foundation of clinical practice of Chinese medicine and covers a large variety of diseases and symptoms. Developing expertise in every internal disease requires a lot of practice and extensive studies. However, after mastering the theory of Chinese medicine and classical understanding of the etiology and pathomechanism of diseases, the practitioner must acquire many years of clinical practice. One could spend years accumulating firsthand experience. However, since there is ample information collected from successful cases studies available to us, it is highly profitable for the practitioner to analyze and grasp the knowledge through the experience of the masters that came before them. In this approach, medicine itself will continue to evolve and improve. This collection of internal medicine clinical cases contains clear and detailed analysis of commonly seen diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, post stroke sequelae, insomnia, epilepsy, bipolar disorder, emaciation, rheumatoid arthritis and many more. These medical cases are concrete and filled with medical knowledge from experts on the theory, treatment principles and methods with medicinals, formulas, acupuncture and moxibustion. In addition, to deepen the level of understanding of the diseases, comprehension questions have been added at the end of each chapter with detailed answers. This clinical case study collection is a most for all practitioners of Chinese medicine.

Description : Gain expertise in primary care of older adults with a case-based approach to geriatric primary care and multimorbidity management. Written by two leading academic and clinical experts in geriatric primary care, Case Studies in Geriatric Primary Care and Multimorbidity Management, 1st Edition uses detailed Exemplar Case Studies and Practice Case Studies to teach you how to think like an expert geriatric clinician. Because most older adults have more than one condition when seeking care, both Exemplar and Practice Case Studies place a strong emphasis on "multimorbidity" management, (the management of patients with a host of complex, interacting conditions). To provide extensive practice in learning how to think like an expert, case studies reflect the reality that care does not necessarily begin or end in the primary care setting. Cases therefore move fluidly from primary care to acute care to inpatient rehabilitation to assisted living to long-term care. Building on foundational introductory chapters, cases also call on you to develop interprofessional collaboration skills and reflect the diversity of today's older adults, in terms of age (young-old to old-old), gender, culture, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and more! As you work through both basic-level and advanced Practice Case Studies, you can make extensive notes in the printed book and then go online to submit answers for grading and receive expert feedback for self-reflection. NEW! Introductory unit on the core principles of caring for older adults gives you a strong foundation in the principles of geriatric primary care and multimorbidity management. NEW! and UNIQUE! Exceptionally detailed, unfolding Exemplar Case Studies demonstrate how an expert advanced practitioner "thinks clinically" to provide care to older adults with multiple conditions. NEW and UNIQUE! Exceptionally detailed, unfolding Practice Case Studies emphasize patient diversity and multimorbidity management across healthcare settings to help you develop advanced clinical reasoning skills for geriatric primary care. NEW and UNIQUE! Strong emphasis on multimorbidity management focuses on caring for older adults with multiple chronic conditions. NEW! Emphasis on the continuum of care across settings reflects the reality that care does not necessarily begin or end in the primary care setting but can move from primary care to acute care to inpatient rehabilitation to assisted living to long-term care, and so forth. NEW! Online answer submission for grading and expert feedback for self-reflection. NEW! Emphasis on patient diversity reflects the makeup of today's older adult, population in terms of age (young-old to old-old), gender, culture, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and more.

Description : The polysomnogram is a formidable sleep medicine tool, typically incorporating multiple channels of physiologic data including EEG, ECG, EMG, respiratory flow and effort, ventilation via CO2 monitoring, oxygen saturation via pulse oximetry and ventilatory treatment modalities. Aspiring experts must constantly ask themselves questions regarding PSG interpretation such as: Am I confident in using all of these modalities? Can I accurately and consistently distinguish a seizure from a movement disorder; a servo ventilator signal from an auto-titrating continuous positive airway pressure signal; an episode of Cheyne–Stokes breathing from an episode of obstructive sleep apnea? The authors take you into their own sleep laboratories and deliver real-life cases for you to interpret with them. Such expertise is vitally useful for house staff and fellows learning sleep medicine, those seeking Board certification, technologists who score PSGs and seasoned sleep clinicians managing patients with sleep-related health disorders. The print edition includes a CD-ROM featuring all images.

Description : A single volume of 85 articles, the Handbook of the Neurobiology of Aging is an authoritative selection of relevant chapters from the Encyclopedia of Neuroscience, the most comprehensive source of neuroscience information assembled to date (AP Oct 2008). The study of neural aging is a central topic in neuroscience, neuropsychology and gerontology. Some well-known age-related neurological diseases include Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, but even more common are problems of aging which are not due to disease but to more subtle impairments in neurobiological systems, including impairments in vision, memory loss, muscle weakening, and loss of reproductive functions, changes in body weight, and sleeplessness. As the average age of our society increases, diseases of aging become more common and conditions associated with aging need more attention by doctors and researchers. This book offers an overview of topics related to neurobiological impairments which are related to the aging brain and nervous system. Coverage ranges from animal models to human imaging, fundamentals of age-related neural changes and pathological neurodegeneration, and offers an overview of structural and functional changes at the molecular, systems, and cognitive levels. Key pathologies such as memory disorders, Alzheimer's, dementia, Down syndrome, Parkinson's, and stroke are discussed, as are cutting edge interventions such as cell replacement therapy and deep brain stimulation. There is no other current single-volume reference with such a comprehensive coverage and depth. Authors selected are the internationally renowned experts for the particular topics on which they write, and the volume is richly illustrated with over 100 color figures. A collection of articles reviewing our fundamental knowledge of neural aging, the book provides an essential, affordable reference for scientists in all areas of Neuroscience, Neuropsychology and Gerontology. * The most comprehensive source of up-to-date data on the neurobiology of aging, review articles cover: normal, sensory and cognitive aging; neuroendocrine, structural and molecular factors; and fully address both patholgy and intervention * Chapters represent an authoritative selection of relevant material from the most comprehensive source of information about neuroscience ever assembled, (Encyclopedia of Neuroscience), synthesizing information otherwise dispersed across a number of journal articles and book chapters, and saving researchers the time consuming process of finding and integrating this information themselves * Offering outstanding scholarship, each chapter is written by an expert in the topic area and over 20% of chapters feature international contributors, (representing 11 countries) * Provides more fully vetted expert knowledge than any existing work with broad appeal for the US, UK and Europe, accurately crediting the contributions to research in those regions * Fully explores various pathologies associated with the aging brain (Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's, memory disorders, stroke, Down's syndrome, etc.) * Coverage of disorders and key interventions makes the volume relevant to clinicians as well as researchers * Heavily illustrated with over 100 color figures

Description : This book offers a concise, methodological approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients with sleep disorders. The management of sleep disorders requires an understanding of sleep itself, thus the book initially discusses aspects of normal sleep. The remainder of the book provides a formula for critical assessment, in which the symptoms and signs and the psychological and medical background of the patient, in conjunction with an understanding of the neurobiological and psychological basis of sleep disorders, are considered. Polysomnographic studies and other laboratory tests supplement and redefine clinical information and assist physicians in their treatment options.

Description : In Volume 2 of Current Thinking and Research in Brief Therapy the author's consideration of Ericksonian-influenced brief therapy continues. Presently, there is a concern among those in the psychotherapy profession who worry that this area of science will become heartless. Others are equally concerned that their hearts not become science-less in the future. In this volume, the authors respect both viewpoints and attempt to weave these notions together. Throughout this book, different types of emotions in psychotherapy unfold. For instance, Harry Aponte presents a thoughtful piece on the issue of client-therapy intimacy, while Doug Flemons and Shelley Green, a married couple, share a humorous yet sensitive article on sexual concerns in couples, and finally, Daniel Handel provides a powerful story of the use of hypnosis with a dying adolescent. In addition to the emotional side of psychotherapy, the authors include the scientific aspects of psychotherapy. A discussion about various models of brief therapy is given, emphasizing that the therapeutic effects of the treatment models are attributable to "the non-treatment specifics" of the therapeutic interaction. A review of empirical data on the key elements of Ericksonian hypnosis and the social-psychological aspect of Ericksonian hypnosis are discussed as well. Finally, an important, and perhaps controversial, essay on ethics in the general non-therapeutic use of hypnosis by lawyers and its use in recovering memories is presented.

Description : Like its predecessors, this fourth edition of A Guide to Treatments That Work offers detailed chapters that review the latest research on pharmacological and psychosocial treatments that work for the full range of psychiatric and psychological disorders, written in most instances by clinical psychologists and psychiatrists who have been major contributors to that literature. Similarly, the standards by which the authors were asked to evaluate the methodological rigor of the research on treatments have also remained the same. Each chapter in A Guide to Treatments That Work follows the same general outline: a review of diagnostic cues to the disorder, a discussion of changes in the nomenclatures from DSM-IV to DSM-5, and then a systematic review of research, most of which has been reported within the last few years, that represents the evidence base for the treatments reviewed. In all, 26 of the volume's 28 chapters review the evidence base for 17 major syndromes. Featuring this coverage is a Summary of Treatments that Work, an extended matrix offering a ready reference by syndrome of the conclusions reached by the chapter authors on treatments that work reviewed in their chapters. New to this edition are two chapters at the beginning of the book. Chapter 1 details two perplexing issues raised by critics of DSM-5: the unrealized potential of neuroscience biomarkers to yield more accurate and reliable diagnoses and the lingering problem of conflicts of interest in pharmaceutical research. Chapter 2 contrasts Native American and western ways of identifying effective treatments for mental and physical disorders, concluding that "evidence-informed culture-based" interventions sometimes constitute best practices in Native communities. Two chapters detailing pharmacological treatments for pediatric bipolar disorder (Chapter 9) and pediatric depressive disorder (Chapter 12) have also been added. More than three quarters of the chapters are written by colleagues who also contributed to most or all of the previous editions. Hence, this new edition provides up-to-date information on the quality of research on treatment efficacy and effectiveness provided by individuals who know the research best.

Description : Psychological stress is often overlooked by medical doctors as a major factor in physiologically based illness; however, clinical studies show that stress has a vital impact on both the mental and physical well-being of patients. Handbook of Stress Medicine: An Organ System Approach focuses on the relationship between stress and the physiology and pathology of the major organ systems of the body. It suggests that understanding how stress impacts on illnesses can help hold down medical costs through more accurate diagnoses and promote improved preventative care. Section I offers a general background on stress as it relates to medicine and the difficulties in conducting stress-related research. The primary focus of the text, how stress effects specific organ systems, is examined using scientific and clinical data in Section II. The third section addresses the impact of stress on important medical problems of current interest, such as AIDS, cancer, and substance abuse. It also discusses anxiety disorders. The next section covers topics related to stress, such as stress measurement, stress in the workplace, and the psychodynamics of stress. The final section explores the major pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to the treatment of stress and anxiety disorders. This book will assist physicians, psychologists, nurses, physical therapists, and other health care professionals recognize possible stress-related problems, educate their patients, and develop therapeutic strategies for reducing stress and stress-related illnesses.

Description : Sleep Disorders II covers various aspects of sleep disorders. These include the different classification of sleep disorders, the genetic influences of sleep disorders, abnormality in the sleeping pattern, and the circadian rhythm sleep disorder. A sleep disorder is a medical disorder that affects the sleeping patterns of humans (and sometimes animals). The disruptions in sleep can be caused by different factors, such as teeth grinding, night terrors, and the like. The book also discusses different perspectives on insomnia and hypersomnia. According to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, insomnia is a sleep that is low in quality or a difficulty in sleeping. On the other hand, hypersomnia is a sleeping disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) or prolonged nighttime sleep. The book discusses narcolepsy, a syndrome that is characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness that is associated with cataplexy and other REM sleep phenomena. The different medicines for this disease are also discussed. People who are practicing neurology and internal medicine, especially those in pulmonary, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, renal and endocrine specialties, will find this book valuable. * A comprehensive resource for the study of sleep science, sleep medicine, and sleep disorders * Fascinating noninvasive neuroimaging studies that demonstrate marked changes during different sleep states * A state-of-the-art reference that summarizes the clinical features and management of many of the neurological manifestations of sleep disorders
