  • In 1949, at the age of three, holding tight onto my mother's skirt, I ran with my parents and two younger brothers across a Shanghai airport runway. Amid the sound of bombs blasting, we boarded the last commercial flight out of China. From a life of affluence and privilege, my family was reduced to the condition of faceless immigrants among millions in Taiwan who had fled the conquering communists. All the possessions we were able to salvage from the devastation of our lives fit into the suitcases my parents carried....

Yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 39% of Americans engage in no leisure-time physical activity....

  • It is estimated that approximately 20 million people suffer from heart failure worldwide. Moreover, the prevalence of heart failure still tends to increase. A signifi cant proportion of patients with this condition have normal left ventricular systolic function, as measured by the ejection fraction. It is believed that in these patients, heart failure is the result of diastolic dysfunction. This condition is, therefore, frequently referred to as diastolic heart failure.

  • Not Otherwise Specified [NOS]). We also review functional brain imaging studies of patients with various forms of conversion disorder (e.g. psychogenic motor or sensory changes, psychogenic blindness, pseudoseizures) as well as depersonalization disorder. As hypnotizability traits have been postulated to be associated with a higher tendency for developing dissociative symptoms, we briefly refer to functional imaging studies of hypnosis.

  • Poor nutrition is a major problem in older Americans. Inadequate intake affects approximately 37 to 40 percent of community-dwelling individuals over 65 years of age (Ryan et al., 1992). In addition, the vast majority of older Americans have chronic conditions in which nutrition interventions have been demonstrated to be effective in improving health and quality-of-life outcomes. Eighty-seven percent of older Americans have either diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, or a combination of these chronic diseases (NCHS, 1997).

  • Air pollution is one of the most serious environmental threats to urban populations (Cohen 2005). Exposures vary among and within urban areas, but all people living in cities are exposed, and many are harmed, by current levels of pollutants in many large cities. Infants, young children, seniors and people who have lung and heart conditions are especially affected, but even young, healthy adults are not immune to harm from poor air quality.

  • Resilience is natural. Even after a long, hard winter, when the proper conditions arrive, nature simply springs back to life of its own accord. Resilience may be natural, yet every day we encounter people who are enduring a hard inner winter, whose joy and vitality have long ago gone dormant. Many of them have lost heart. Having tried all the usual remedies with little success, they wonder if they will ever fully reclaim their lives. They come to us with a single question, framed in a thousand different ways: “What can I do to feel better, to bring myself back to life, to recover the joy...

  • Attanasio and Lechene (2002) estimate Engel curves using municipality wage as an instrument for consumption. They find more reasonable results than when household income is used as an instrument. We follow them and use municipality wage as an instrument for total consumption. This obviously precludes the introduction of community fixed effects. In this case the main identification assumption is that municipality wage is not correlated with the error term once the effect of other covariates have been taken into account.

  • This is a fully revised and updated edition of the major work that teaches health professionals to utilize the 12-lead ECG in daily clinical practice. It deals with the analysis of the morphology of ECG waveforms in order to diagnose many conditions not related to rhythm, including ischemia, acute myocardial infarction, and hypertrophy of the heart muscle. Almost all other texts of morphologic interpretation for non-cardiologists rely heavily on memorizing electrocardiographic patterns.

  • Diabetes is a unique condition for women. When compared with men, women have a 50 percent greater risk of diabetic coma, a condition brought on by poorly controlled diabetes and lack of insulin. Women with diabetes have heart disease rates similar to men, but more women with diabetes die from a first heart attack than do men with diabetes. Diabetes also poses special challenges during pregnancy.

  • The pathophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias is complex and the actions of drugs that are useful in stopping or controlling them may seem equally so. Nevertheless many patients with arrhythmias respond well to therapy with drugs and a working knowledge of their effects and indications pays dividends, for irregularity of the heart-beat is at least inconvenient and at worst fatal.The mechanisms by which the failing heart may be sustained are now better understood; carefully selected and monitored drugs can have a major impact on morbidity and mortality in this condition.

  • Anesthesia management is markedly influenced by pregnancy. Pregnancy-induced physiologic alterations may be compounded by labor, pregnancy-associated conditions (e.g., pregnancy-induced hypertension), or intercurrent disease states of the mother or fetus (e.g., heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, diabetes, or isoimmunization). The pregnancy alterations most influencing anesthesia are those of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal systems. At term, cardiac output is increased by 30%–40% above nonpregnant levels in the absence of aortocaval compression.

Medication interactions: Alcohol can interact with a wide variety of medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter. Alcohol can reduce the effectiveness of some medications, and it can combine with other medications to cause or increase side effects.
