Physiology's classic text continues to uphold its rich tradition-presenting key physiology concepts in a remarkably clear and engaging manner. Guyton & Hall's Textbook of Medical Physiology covers all of the major systems in the human body, while emphasizing system interaction, homeostasis, and pathophysiology. This very readable, easy-to-follow, and thoroughly updated, 11th Edition features a new full-color layout, short chapters, clinical vignettes, and shaded summary tables that allow for easy comprehension of the material. ...
Optoelectronics - Materials and Techniques is the first part of an edited anthology on
the multifaceted areas of optoelectronics contributed by a selected group of authors
including promising novices to experts in the field, where are discussed related
materials and techniques. Photonics and optoelectronics are making an impact
multiple times the semiconductor revolution made on the quality of our life.
Welcome to the third edition of Understanding Medical
Surgical Nursing! We have fully updated all the material,
and have added exciting new information on home health
care, end-of-life care, disaster response and bioterrorism,
stroke, and more.
We continue to work hard to provide a text written at an
understandable level, with features that help students understand,
apply, and practice the challenging content required
to function as practical/vocational nurses. We are thankful to
the many students who tell us they find the book very readable,
and actually enjoyable.
The evolution of technological advances in infrared sensor technology, image processing, “smart”
algorithms, knowledge-based databases, and their overall system integration has resulted in new methods
of research and use in medical infrared imaging. The development of infrared cameras with focal
plane arrays not requiring cooling added a new dimension to this modality. New detector materials
with improved thermal sensitivity are now available and production of high-density focal plane arrays
(640×480) has been achieved.
Due to the widespread use of ceramic coatings, several synthesis techniques have
been developed in recent decades. The majority of these techniques, such as chemical
vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD) and their
variants, are focused on the synthesis of flat coatings. Recently, the preceramic
polymeric synthesis route has offered the possibility to impregnate preceramic
materials into porous matrices prior to pyrolysis in order to create coated or
composite materials This technique, however, leads to pore filling and alterations
of the original substrate texture....
Research and development in bioengineering and medical technology, conducted during
recent decades, have led to spectacular progress in clinical medicine. These
achievements have triggered an enormous increase in the number of courses offered in
the areas of bioengineering, clinical technology and medical informatics; nowadays,
most major universities offer curricula oriented towards these fields. The majority of
participants however come from engineering backgrounds and so modules dealing with
basic biological and medical sciences have been included.
The primary purpose of this book is to provide in a single accessible format
information central to the professional, ethical and legal requirements of being
a doctor. It covers a core curriculum for medical students who must obtain a
grounding in the elements of what constitutes being a medical professional [1–2].
The same material is essential for doctors in training and for international medical
graduates coming to work in Australia. This book should be a useful and readily
accessible starting point for busy doctors looking for answers to issues as they
arise in practice....
The new millennium has seen the birth of a new perspective that conflates research in solid-state physics, biological science as well
as materials engineering. The perspective is one that recognizes that
future new advances in all these areas will be based on a fundamental
understanding of the atomic and molecular infrastructure of
materials that has resulted from two centuries of chemistry. Major
advances will be achieved when the novel behavior, in particular the
quantum mechanical behavior, that nanoscale structures possess, can
be controlled and harnessed....
Having a vision, a mission, and a passion are invariably seen as
conditions for success. The 1995 U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services (DHHS) concept of a Metropolitan Medical Response
System (MMRS) demonstrated that the leaders of DHHS had a
vision for an effective response to a mass-casualty terrorism incident with
a weapon of mass destruction. The mission was to expand the experimental
model of the Metropolitan Medical Strike Team (MMST) established
in Washington, D.C., and neighboring counties into a national
Normally, any ferromagnetic or ferrimagnetic material undergoes a transition to a paramagnetic state above its Curie temperature. Superparamagnetism is different from this standard transition since it occurs below the Curie temperature of the material.
Superparamagnetism occurs in nanoparticles which are single domain. This is possible when their diameter is below 3–50 nm, depending on the materials.
The application of radiation in human health, for both diagnosis and treatment of disease, is
an important component of the work of the IAEA. The responsibility for the increasingly
technical aspects of this work is undertaken by the medical physicist. To ensure good practice
in this vital area, structured clinical training programmes are required to complement
academic learning. This publication is intended to be a guide to the practical implementation
of such a programme for nuclear medicine.
For 30 years, the field of medical device technology has struggled
to identify the specifications for optimal biocompatibility. For
the vast majority of devices, clinical experience has eventually
confirmed that the best performance is achieved when biocom-patibility is equated with biological safety that is materials are
selected on the basis of maximizing bioinertness and minimizing
toxicity and irritation.
