Description : Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact because of an ageing population. During the last 20 years neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of 'evidenced based medicine' with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a 'work in progress' and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of neurorehabilitation. There are very few books that address contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective. This volume moves the reader from theory to practice. It provides the reader with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of neurorehabilitation, as well as a clear idea about how (and why) to approach treatment decisions in individual patients. These clinical recommendations are based on a mix of established evidence and clinical experience that the authors bring to bear on their topics.

Description : A survey of over 900 trainees at the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) in the United Kingdom showed that over three-quarters of psychiatry trainees desired some knowledge and training in the field of neuropsychiatry. Recent years have given rise to a substantial global focus on integrating neurosciences and neuropsychiatry in psychiatric training. Neuropsychiatry forms an important part of the psychiatric curriculum and is examined in theory and in clinical exams. Similarly, neuropsychiatry is also of interest to neurology trainees, and it is increasingly recognised that all neurology trainees should have some knowledge and experience in neuropsychiatry. Despite this growing interest, there is a dearth of neuropsychiatry textbooks specifically geared towards trainees and other clinicians who are not specialist in the field. Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry series, the Oxford Textbook of Neuropsychiatry helps to bridge the gap between general psychiatric textbooks and reference texts in neuropsychiatry. Organised into four sections, the book covers the basic knowledge and skills relevant to neuropsychiatry, the various neuropsychiatric conditions, the principles of treatment, and perspectives for neuropsychiatry worldwide. Chapters have been written by international experts who are leaders in their own fields with the view to taking an evidence-based, up-to-date, global perspective on neuropsychiatric problems and treatment. The book is relevant to trainees in psychiatry, neurology, neurorehabilitation and also to various allied professionals in neuroscience and mental health. It covers core knowledge and skills for practice in all psychiatric disciplines including core knowledge for training in neuropsychiatry. The book meets curriculum requirements for various international training programmes and examinations, and serves as an essential training text book for all psychiatric and neurology trainees worldwide.

Description : The first edition of the Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology established itself as the leading clinical reference text for practicing nephrologists worldwide. The second edition comes five years later, during which time there have been significant advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of renal disease and in therapy. Placing existing treatment on a firm scientific basis or stopping ineffective or dangerous treatment is as important as introducing proven new therapies, and all the contributors have taken this fully into account. During the development of the second edition all the first edition chapters were critically reviewed by practicing nephrologists and their suggestions have been incorporated to make the text even more practically useful and logically arranged. Expert topic editors for pediatrics, pathology, physiology and pharmacology have checked all relevant sections from their own perspective. This edition is the only major textbook of nephrology to be printed in full colour throughout. Reproduction of the histological and clinical illustrations in their natural colours reveals their true significance, and there are numerous new colour illustrations. There are new chapters on: Imaging tactics - a rationale; Structural basis of glomerular function; Symptomless patient with abnormal urine; Immunotactoid (fibrillary) nephritis; Mechanisms of interstitial disease; and Host factors in the pathogenesis of urinary tract infection. The sections on acute and chronic renal failure have been reorganized with new chapters on the Epidemiology of acute renal failure, Dialysis and haemoperfusion treatment in acute poisoning, and Genesis of the uraemic syndrome. In addition the chapter on Gastrointestinal effects in chronic renal failure includes a new discussion of the various forms of hepatitis. A new section on Acute renal failure in special settings includes new chapters on pregnancy, tropical illness, and the elderly. In the inherited diseases section there is a new chapter on Inherited disorders of purine metabolism, and in the structural diseases section a new chapter on Medullary sponge kidney. The section on malignant disease has new chapters on Tumours of the bladder, and Tumours of the prostate. The result is an outstanding up- to-date, international clinical text which no clinical nephrologist can afford to be without.

Description : Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery, second edition, teaches students a logical step-by-step diagnostic approach to common patient presentations. This approach mirrors that used by successful clinicians on the wards, challenging students with questions at each stage of a case (history-taking, examination, investigation, management). In tackling these questions, students understand how to critically analyse information and learn to integrate their existing knowledge to a real-life scenario from start to finish. Each chapter focuses on a common presenting symptom (e.g. chest pain). By starting with a symptom, mirroring real life settings, students learn to draw on their knowledge of different physiological systems - for example, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology - at the same time. All the major presenting symptoms in general medicine and surgery are covered, together with a broad range of pathologies. This book is an essential resource for all medicine students, and provides a modern, well-rounded introduction to life on the wards. Ideal for those starting out in clinical medicine and an ideal refresher for those revising for OSCEs and finals.

Description : This book is a collection of over 50 case histories of patients with predominantly acute neurological illness, with particular emphasis on conditions that present to physicians in both acute general (internal) medicine and neurology, including headache, encephalopathy and altered consciousness, behavioural disturbance, seizures and focal deficits. The majority of the cases have endocrine, vascular, infectious or metabolic aetiologies and include examples of common conditions presenting in unusual ways. The differential diagnosis in such cases is often broad but rapid diagnosis and treatment is often paramount. Each case is outlined in brief and is followed by several questions on clinically important aspects of the diagnosis and management. The answers are accompanied by a detailed discussion of the differential diagnosis, together with other clinically important aspects of the condition. The text is complimented by over 170 radiographic illustrations. The question-and-answer format is designed to enhance the reader's diagnostic ability and clinical understanding.
