Parkinson s Disease Book Excerpt:

Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterised by an insidious onset with slowing of emotional and voluntary movement, muscular rigidity, postural abnormality and tremor. Parkinson's disease was first described in 1817 by James Parkinson. It is a progressive, neurological disease mainly affecting people over the age of 50, although at least 10 per cent of cases occur at an earlier age. It affects people of either sex and all ethnic groups. In the normal brain, some nerve cells produce the chemical dopamine, which transmits signals within the brain to produce smooth movement of muscles. In Parkinson's patients, 80 percent or more of these dopamine-producing cells are damaged, dead, or otherwise degenerated. This causes the nerve cells to fire wildly, leaving patients unable to control their movements. This new book brings together the latest research in this field.

Parkinsons s Disease Book Excerpt:

With the general population becoming increasingly aware of new developments for the diagnosis and treatment of certain neurological disorders throught increased media coverage in the popular press and on television and with celebrities being affected, the clinician must be aware of all the latest developments inthe diagnosis and treatment of disease. Parkinson's disease is no different. Peter LeWitt and Wolfgang Oertel have assembled an international team of contributors to write on their particular areas of expertise to produce a work which will help the practising clinician. This book captures all the latest information: the most important developments in the research of Parkinson's disease in recent years and the many different approaches to the treatment of the disease. These are exciting times for the study of Parkinson's disease, and this book condenses the wealth of available information into a practical text.

Parkinson s Disease Book Excerpt:

It is an insidious illness with no known cure, afflicting those who suffer from it with near-uncontrollable tremors, speech impairment, and balance problems. In addition, one's intelligence experiences decline. Among its most prominent victims are Muhammad Ali and Michael J Fox. Parkinson's disease is a disorder of certain nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine, which is a chemical messenger that the brain uses to help direct and control movement. In Parkinson's disease, these dopamine-producing nerve cells break down, dopamine levels drop, and brain signals directing movement become abnormal. Usually, the disease begins in later life (in one's 50s or after), although there are cases of 'early-onset' Parkinson's affecting those in their 20s and 30s. Medical science has yet to determine a cause for this illness, although recent tests have seemed to rule out genetics. In addition, there is no known cure, but treatment can lessen some of the symptoms. The importance of understanding Parkinson's disease is quite clear, and medical research in the field is moving ahead, although there are continual battles for funding. across the world. After giving a thorough overview of Parkinson's, the book gives a carefully selected list of abstracts of relevant literature, then provides easy access via author, title, and subject indexes.

Parkinson s Disease Book Excerpt:

Parkinson's disease is no longer considered only a motor disorder. It has become evident that the pathological changes are broad, the progression seems to follow a pattern suggesting transynaptic transmission via templation of proteins in a prion-like fashion, and that these pathological changes usually antedate the motor symptoms by decades. This book emphasizes treatment options for Parkinson's disease, critically assessing pharmacologic and surgical interventions for all aspects of the disease. Evidence from randomized controlled clinical trials is highlighted to develop practical recommendations for clinical practice. Lessons learnt from clinical trials – and controversies and future challenges – are all addressed. Readers will find the necessary clinical and scientific foundations for the understanding of the disease, the underpinnings of the pathological processes, the identification of disease biomarkers, and the basis for solid therapeutics. Chapters are authored by an international team of specialists who bring their expertise to improving the management of this disease.

Non motor Parkinson s Disease Book Excerpt:

"1. Introduction Non-motor symptoms (NMS) are a crucial component of Parkinson's disease (PD) and the burden of the range of NMS that occurs in PD is one of the main determinants of quality of life [1]. In 1817, Dr James Parkinson already described several NMS in his "shaking palsy", the condition that would later be named after him, including pain, constipation and sleep disturbances [2]. Nonetheless, after a long period of inertia, over the last 20 to 25 years the interest in NMS has increased and evidence suggests that the overall burden of NMS dominates and can influence the risk of developing motor parkinsonism in the premotor stage of PD while being a driving factor for quality of life [3]. The identification of NMS in PD has been greatly aided by the development of specific tools, such as the NMS questionnaire (NMSQ) in 2006 [4] and the NMS Scale (NMSS) in 2007 [5]. The NMSS, which was based on the previously validated NMSQ, addresses a wide range of NMS in PD which are grouped into nine domains, measured over the period of the last month and quantified by severity and frequency (NMS symptomatic burden) [5]. Recently, a new version of the NMSS, the Movement Disorder society - Non-motor symptoms scale (MDS-NMS), has been published which will further aid in the identification and quantification on NMS burden of PD [6]. In this chapter, we will describe the phenomenology of NMS in PD, including non-motor fluctuations (NMF), and how to measure these symptoms"--

Parkinson s Disease An Interdisciplinary Guide to Management Book Excerpt:

Evidence shows that a multidisciplinary approach to Parkinson’s care provides better patient outcomes and is more cost effective. This new title provides a practical guide to this approach, with the perspective of the person living with Parkinson’s firmly at its core. Written by experts in their field and firmly grounded in up-to-date evidence, Parkinson’s Disease: A Multidisciplinary Guide to Management addresses multidisciplinary intervention through the various stages of disease, rather than by discipline. It covers all aspects of care, from pharmacological management to non-drug interventions that are helpful for Parkinson’s symptoms. This book is unique in its holistic approach to the patient and their family, and will help all members of the team to implement a biopsychosocial model of health that puts the person with Parkinson’s at the centre of care. Clinician-led content provides perspectives of different members of the interdisciplinary team, including medics, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychologists Includes practical advice and top tips enhance management of common problems Includes best practice for Parkinson’s as well as Atypical Parkinsonian Syndromes - Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Corticobasal Syndrome and Multiple System Atrophy Includes management of falls and bone health, palliative care, management of inpatients Provides practical advice on delivering services remotely by telephone or video
