This is a concise description of the clinical manifestations frequently seen in the more common respiratory disorders affecting pediatric patients. After a brief description of each disease, the clinical findings associated with the disorder are summarized in table format. Students are cautioned that the tables represent a summary of the “classic” findings in moderately advanced cases. In reality the occurrence and degree of the typical findings vary with the severity of the disease and the patients overall health status.

We must be daring and search after Truth; even if we do not succeed in finding her, we shall at least come closer than we are at present (Galen AD 130-200)
SYNOPSIS (CONTINUED) Surveillance studies and the reporting of spontaneous adverse reactions respectively determine the clinical profile of the drug and detect rare adverse events. Further trials to compare new medicines with existing medicines are also required.These form the basis of cost-effectiveness comparisons.
Govender et al. present an important overview of criteria employed to predict
recurrence and progression to MS, with particular attention given to radiological
findings. Guevara Campos and González Guevara focus specifically on Landau
Kleffner syndrome (LKS; sometimes called infantile acquired aphasia), in which
language comprehension and expression impairments emerge after an initial period of
While history and examination will always remain the foundation of neurolog-
ical diagnosis, MRI and CT have now become the most important diagnostic
tests used by neurologists and neurosurgeons. These tests are critical not only
for confirming clinical diagnosis, but in many cases will give additional infor-
mation absolutely essential to patient care. Modern clinical diagnosis and treat-
ment of central nervous system disorders relies heavily upon neuroimaging. In
some cases, the optimal management of clinical problems affecting patients
with brain tumors, strokes, etc.
(BQ) Ebook 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine is an indispensable revision tool for medical students preparing for clinical examinations or OSCEs. Using scenarios which mimic daily life, the cases will interest students in clinical problems and help them develop their clinical reasoning skills, with each case presenting details of a patient's medical history and the key findings of a clinical examination, together with initial investigation results for evaluation.

Although most genital ulcerations cannot be diagnosed confidently on clinical grounds alone, clinical findings plus epidemiologic considerations (Table 124-7) can usually guide initial management (Table 124-8) pending results of further tests.
Clinicians should order a rapid serologic test for syphilis in all cases of genital ulcer and a dark-field or direct immunofluorescence test (or PCR test, where available) for T.
This paper presents the results of the development of a high throughput, real time modularized text analysis and information retrieval system that identifies clinically relevant entities in clinical notes, maps the entities to several standardized nomenclatures and makes them available for subsequent information retrieval and data mining. The performance of the system was validated on a small collection of 351 documents partitioned into 4 query topics and manually examined by 3 physicians and 3 nurse abstractors for relevance to the query topics.

Periodontitis is one of the most common oral diseases and is characterised by gingival
inflammation and alveolar bone resorption (Savage et al. 2009). Periodontitis is a
multifactorial irreversible and cumulative condition, initiated and propagated by bacteria
and host factors (Kinane 2001). More than 500 different bacterial species are able to colonise
the oral biofilm and up to 150 different species of bacteria are possible in any individual’s

Pulmonary embolism is a serious, potentially life-threatening cardiopulmonary disease
that occurs due to partial or total obstruction of the pulmonary arterial bed. Pulmonary
embolism constitutes 5-25% of in-hospital deaths, and mortality is decreased from 30%
to 8% with early treatment. Therefore, risk factors should be identified and treatment
should be planned to decrease the risk of mortality. Clinical findings, routine laboratory
data, electrocardiogram, chest X-ray, and arterial blood gases are not sufficient to
diagnose or rule out pulmonary embolus.
This book has emerged from our experience in the education of allied health
professionals (AHPs), particularly student occupational therapists. As tutors we
were aware that students, especially as they neared qualification, struggled to
find a suitable textbook examining the key areas that contextualised their study
of profession-specific skills.

This study examines how different types of performance measures were
weighted in a subjective balanced scorecard bonus plan adopted by a major financial
services firm. Drawing upon economic and psychological studies on performance evaluation
and compensation criteria, we develop hypotheses regarding the weights placed
on different types of measures.
