Rather than focusing on earlier treatments, based largely on the simplifications of geometrical acoustics, Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics examines concepts of wave acoustics, introducing them in the very first chapter. Practical implications of these concepts are explored, first the generation and nature of acoustic fields, and then their formal descriptions and measurement. Real tissues attenuate and scatter ultrasound in ways that have interesting relationships to their physical chemistry, and the book includes coverage of these topics.

Abstract Complex I is the fi rst enzyme of the respiratory chain and plays a central
role in cellular energy production. It has been implicated in many human neurodegenerative
diseases, as well as in ageing. One of the biggest membrane protein
complexes, varying in size from 0.5 to 1 MDa, it is an L-shaped assembly consisting
of hydrophilic and membrane domains. Previously, we determined the structure
of the hydrophilic domain in several redox states. It established the pathway for
electron transfer from NADH to quinone via seven Fe-S clusters.
; the data and assumptions are sound; the findings are useful and advance knowledge; the implications and recommendations follow logically from the findings and are explained thoroughly; the documentation is accurate, understandable, cogent, and temperate in tone; the research demonstrates understanding of related previous studies; and the research is relevant, objective, independent, and balanced. Peer review is conducted by research professionals who
Engineering is the integration of art and science and involves the use of systematic knowledge based on the
principles of mathematics and the physical sciences to design and develop systems that have direct practical
applicability for the benefit of mankind and society.With this philosophy in mind, the importance of the
engineering sciences becomes obvious, and this is especially true for the biomedical aspects, where the
implications are easily identifiable. Of all the engineering sciences, biomedical engineering is considered
to be the broadest.
The second chapter case study by Rosso et al. presents a medical survey that tests
professional drivers for the presence of various psychoactive substances. Positives
were identified by using a commercially available immunoassay rapid kit test which
indicates consumption of psychoactive drugs. This is of interest and important since
the dependence on drugs may pose a risk to drivers in their profession affecting their
reaction time and driving judgment. This is one of the first and important
contributions to the literature in this area.
Acknowledging the tremendous changes in the health care system, this book offers a current and fresh perspective on nursing in the 21st century. A departure from the "medical model", its emphasis on client education, shifting delivery of care, and a collaborative approach fosters a practical view of the challenges the student will encounter in the workplace. Core content areas are covered in detail, including pathophysiology, normal and high-risk pregnancy, and women's health across the life-span.
During the past 25 years, there has been a vast explosion in new information
relating to the art and science of dermatology as well as fundamental
cutaneous biology. Furthermore, this information is no longer of interest
only to the small but growing specialty of dermatology. Clinicians and
scientists from a wide variety of disciplines have come to recognize both
the importance of skin in fundamental biological processes and the broad
implications of understanding the pathogenesis of skin disease.
The research field of gene therapy and the clinical practice of medicine evolving
from the research are fast moving, ever-changing disciplines. On an almost daily
basis, there appears in the media a “breaking story” of a gene-based research finding.
An implication of the story is that this research breakthrough will speedily transform,
in the next few years, into a marvelous new therapy in molecular genetic
This edition aims to present some relevant topics in the histopathology area that may be of interest for medical doctors and for other professionals interested in pathology. Histopathology applies basic knowledge obtained from biologic and anatomic science to make diagnosis, to determine the severity and progress of a condition and to evaluate the possible response to certain therapies. Thus, it is not surprising that this discipline constantly expands with progresses produced in biology.
1950 The practice of medicine has changed in significant ways since the first edition of this book appeared in 1950. The advent of molecular biology with its enormous implications for the biological sciences (the sequencing of the human genome), sophisticated new imaging techniques, and advances in bioinformatics and information technology have contributed to an explosion of scientific information that has fundamentally changed the way we define, diagnose, treat, and prevent disease. This explosion of scientific knowledge is not at all static as it continues to intensify with time. ...
In this A–Z of Haematology we have
sought to be as comprehensive as possible,
but we have nevertheless given particular
emphasis to recent advances in molecular
haematology. We have detailed the important
genes that have been implicated
in haematological neoplasms and in constitutional
haematological disorders. Blood
transfusion, haemostasis and thrombosis
and immunology have not been neglected.
Drinking and driving: It doesn’t take much alcohol to impair a person’s
ability to drive. The chances of being killed in a single-vehicle crash
are increased at a blood alcohol level that a 140-lb. woman would
reach after having one drink on an empty stomach.
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.
We conducted the study at a private facility in Washington
State, USA. The animals at the facility were mainly or-
phaned individuals that were housed in captivity for huma-
nitarian reasons. The study was conducted under a license
from the State of Washington, USA. Animals were kept in
three outdoor enclosures, each c. 1500m2
in size. The
enclosures consisted of mature conifer and hardwood forest
enriched with water bodies and logs for climbing. The
animals were fed commercial mink food mixed with offal
provided by local elk and deer hunters.
The presence or absence of diseases is strongly associated with individual health but did
not fulfil the multidimensional concept of health. Health is characterised by dynamic and
multi-factorial influences on the physical, psychological and social functioning of an
individual. On the one hand, an objective health status includes the set of diagnosed
physiological and psychological diseases of an individual.
With this edition of Biomedical Ethics Reviews we commence
a somewhat new focus for the series. Building on its solid
tradition of exploring and debating pressing bioethical issues of
the day, this series will now also examine the real-life implications
of these issues for patients and the health care system in
which care is delivered. With each topic, attention will be focused
not only on the theoretical and policy aspects of ethical
dilemmas, but also on the clinical dimensions of these challenges,
and effects on the patient–physician relationship....
Understanding the biological basis of aging has fascinated people throughout
recorded history, and is one of the great remaining scientific questions. The question
has never been more important than now, as we anticipate the impact that a
rapidly growing older population will have on the social, political, and medical
landscape over the next 50 years. There is increasing evidence that aging involves
damage to the genome, and it is certainly the case that such damage explains much
of the coupling of most cancers to aging.
In addition, the marketing provisions of the AIFM Directive do not apply to the marketing of AIF’s shares or units that are subject to a current offer to the public on an EU-regulated stock exchange under a prospectus that has been drawn up and published in accordance with the Prospectus Directive (Directive 2003/71/EC) before mid-2013, as long as this prospectus is still valid.
