Illness and death are important events for people everywhere. No one is spared. However, faith and medical practice not the same everywhere. How do people understand the causes of illness and death and how they deal with these events culture different from culture. It is not surprising therefore that the medical practitioners and others are becoming increas ingly aware of the need to understand the influence of the social and cultural beliefs and medical practice. Culture the usual ways of thinking and acting in a society often affect the outcome of disease, illness and even occur.
To help you have more specialized Medical documents serving the needs of learning and research, invite you to participate dug out the book "Medical Terminology Systems - A Body Systems Approach". Hope useful document for the learning needs and research.
This book is intended as a textbook for a course in radiation physics in aca-demic medical physics graduate programs. The book may also be of interestto the large number of professionals, not only physicists, who in their dailyoccupations deal with various aspects of medical physics and have a need toimprove their understanding of radiation physics.Medical physics is a rapidly growing specialty of physics, concerned withthe application of physics to medicine mainly, but not exclusively, in the ap-plication of ionizing radiation to diagnosis and treatment of human disease...
We are very pleased to launch the 23rd edition of
Review of Medical Physiology
. The current authors have attempted
to maintain the highest standards of excellence, accuracy,
and pedagogy developed by Fran Ganong over the 46
years in which he educated countless students worldwide
with this textbook.
At the same time, we have been attuned to the evolving
needs of both students and professors in medical physiology.
The Medical Device R&D (Research and Development) Handbook is the
fruition of a personal desire to see some of the practical information on
how to develop medical devices compiled in one place. I wanted to write
a book that I wish had been available when I first started in medical
This book contains three main threads. The first thread is practical.
There are many excellent books that give in depth theory on specialized
medical and technology subjects in medical device engineering, but not
a general practical how-to manual.
Modern medicine is characterized by the continuously growing
spectrum of improving diagnostic methods and therapeutic processes.
It keeps getting more complicated and confusing and therefore
also needs more order.
The main goal of medical documentation is to provide information
for the adequate care of patients. Carefully carried out written
records like a patient history, physician indexes, or, more recently,
patient databases serve to reach this goal.
Often, there is a need to use the knowledge from multiple ontologies. This is particularly the case within the context of medical imaging, where a single ontology is not enough to provide the complementary knowledge about anatomy, radiology and diseases that is required by the related applications. Consequently, semantic integration of these different but related types of medical knowledge that is present in disparate domain ontologies becomes necessary. Medical ontology alignment addresses this need by identifying the semantically equivalent concepts across multiple medical ontologies. ...
The General Dental Council’s core ethical guidance booklet ‘Standards for dental
professionals’ and associated, supplementary guidance, emphasise that all dental
professionals are responsible for putting patients’ interests first, and acting to
Central to this responsibility is the need for dental professionals to ensure that they
are able to deal with medical emergencies that may arise in their practice.
This paper outlines the development of the sociological study of medical
autonomy and how recent reforms in medical regulation in the United Kingdom
illustrate how medical elites are proactively introducing formal performance
surveillance and appraisal mechanisms and processes within medical training as
they respond to challenges to traditional professional self-regulatory privileges,
such as greater state, inter-professional and non-medical involvement in the
governance of medical expertise.
The NCRP has long mcog&ed the need for a clear assessment of the
magnitude of doses from various souroes of radiation to which the
population of the U.S. is ocpo9ed. In anticipation of the need to gather
data for input into this process five as&sament committees, each
adhing a different source category, wem established, first in 1971
and then reestablished in 1986. NCRP reports assessing exposum
from natural background, consumer products, and nuclear power gene
ation have recently been published (NCRP, 1987% 1987b. 1987~)...
Learners enrolled in all healthcare training programs need to have a basic understanding
of medical genetics so that they can successfully transition from students to clinicians.
The field of medical genetics is advancing at a fast pace and is becoming increasingly integral
to all aspects of medicine. This fact emphasizes the need for every practicing clinician
and faculty member to develop an in-depth knowledge of the principles of human genetics,
given that they are applicable to such a wide variety of clinical presentations.
Over the last decade in the WHO European Region the health profes-
sions have been under some pressure to promote patient education* as
a major addition to pharmacological, physical and other forms of thera-
py. Nevertheless, health care providers still need efficient educational
programmes* in the long-term management* of chronic diseases*. Cur-
rent programmes do not usually include educational methods or psy-
chological support of patients. Their methodology has never been
adequately formalized and this creates difficulties in educating other
health care providers*.
Today’s nurses enter a realm of opportunities and challenges for
providing high-quality, evidence-based care in traditional as well as
new and innovative health care settings. The rapid changes in
health care mandate that nurses be prepared to provide or plan care
across the continuum of settings—from hospital or clinic, to home,
to community agencies or hospice settings—and during all phases
of illness. Recent research has indicated that nurses make significant
contributions to the health care outcomes of patients who are hospitalized.
The structure of this volume basically follows a tripartite organization: Morality
and Politics, Money and Poverty, and Medical Need and Response. I will briefly
review the chapters in each part in order to provide the reader with a sense of wha
he/she might expect. First, however, I would like to describe the rationale behind
each part of the book and how they are intended to relate to each other.
e California Simulation of Insurance Markets
(CalSIM) model is designed to estimate the impact of
various elements of the ACA on employer decisions to
offer insurance coverage and individual decisions to
obtain coverage in California.
The medical devices industry is booming. Growth in the industry has not stopped despite
globally fluctuating economies. The main reason for this success is probably the self-sustaining
nature of health care. In essence, the same technology that makes it possible for
people to live longer engenders the need for more health-care technologies to enhance the
quality of an extended lifetime. It comes as no surprise, then, that the demand for trained
medical-device designers has increased tremendously over the past few years.
Transport will play a critical role in delivering the CO2 emissions cuts needed to meet global political cli-
mate change targets. The world’s car fleet is expected to triple by 2050, with 80% of the growth in rapidly
developing economies. At the same time the car manufacturing industry is facing huge difficulties in the
economic recession. We have to find ways to reconcile legitimate aspirations for mobility, an ambitious
reduction in CO2 from cars worldwide, and global economic recovery.
