  • This is a new and fully revised edition of Jeffrey and Leach: Atlas of Medical Helminthology and Protozoology . Helminths (worms) and similar parasites are a major medical problem in much of the world and perhaps the largest single cause of morbidity and mortality (eg malaria, elephantiasis, trypanosmiasis). The diagnosis of these conditions still largely rests on the microscopic examination of, for example, faeces. This atlas illustrates the different myriad of different organisms and how to identify them. The atlas covers all helminths and protozoa of medical importance.

  • Traditional healthcare often doesn’t help people to become truly healthy. Many medical problems persist and even worsen despite all the usual traditional healthcare. Let’s examine the case of Bob Baker, a typical patient within the “traditional healthcare system,” which clearly illustrates the issues.

  • Advances in obstetrics, neonatology, obstetric anesthesiology, and medicine have increased the expectation that pregnancy will result in an excellent outcome for both mother and fetus despite most of these conditions. Successful pregnancy requires important physiologic adaptations, such as a marked increase in cardiac output. Medical problems that interfere with the physiologic adaptations of pregnancy increase the risk for poor pregnancy outcome; conversely, in some instances pregnancy may adversely impact an underlying medical disorder. ...

  • We present an NLP system that classifies the assertion type of medical problems in clinical notes used for the Fourth i2b2/VA Challenge. Our classifier uses a variety of linguistic features, including lexical, syntactic, lexicosyntactic, and contextual features. To overcome an extremely unbalanced distribution of assertion types in the data set, we focused our efforts on adding features specifically to improve the performance of minority classes.

  • Care for pregnant women differs fundamentally from most other medical endeavours. ‘Routine’ care during pregnancy and birth interferes in the lives of healthy people, and in a process which has the potential to be an important life experience. It is diffi cult to measure the extent to which our efforts may, for example, disturb the development of a confi dent, nurturing relationship between mother and baby. The harmful effects we measure in randomised trials are limited to those we have predicted may occur.

  • In the 4th edition we have distilled the text to a set of fl ow diagrams with linked tables. Our aim is to provide the doctor caring for an acutely ill patient with rapid access to key information, including a balanced interpretation of current national and international guidelines. We have substantially broadened the scope of the book to cover all problems in general medicine likely to be encountered in the emergency department. Integration of the use of echocardiography, which we believe is as important in acute medicine as ECG interpretation, is a particular feature of the text.

  • After more than a quarter century as a primary care educator, I am convinced that our graduates enter practice inadequately trained in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems and injuries. One reason for this perceived deficiency is the relatively short duration of primary care training—typically three years for family medicine, general internal medicine, and general pediatrics. During this time, there are just not enough months to teach all a clinician needs to know about diseases and trauma involving the musculoskeletal system....

  • Every patient knows to seek medical help when his or her aches and pains become too much to bear, but how does the healthcare provider determine what is wrong and what to do to restore the patient to good health? The answer depends on the patient’s signs and symptoms and the results from medical tests. In this book you will learn to identify these signs and symptoms, interpret the medical test results, and perform the nursing interventions that will assist in solving or alleviating the patient’s medical problem.

  • Image registration is an emerging topic in image processing with many applications in medical imaging, picture and movie processing. The classical problem of image registration is concerned with finding an appropriate transformation between two data sets. This fuzzy definition of registration requires a mathematical modeling and in particular a mathematical specification of the terms appropriate transformations and correlation between data sets. Depending on the type of application, typically Euler, rigid, plastic, elastic deformations are considered.

  • We investigate the problem of ordering medical events in unstructured clinical narratives by learning to rank them based on their time of occurrence. We represent each medical event as a time duration, with a corresponding start and stop, and learn to rank the starts/stops based on their proximity to the admission date.

  • Filled pauses are characteristic of spontaneous speech and can present considerable problems for speech recognition by being often recognized as short words. An um can be recognized as thumb or arm if the recognizer's language model does not adequately represent FP's. Recognition of quasi-spontaneous speech (medical dictation) is subject to this problem as well.

  • Some 60 years after physicists helped to initiate the molecular-biology revolution that has produced so many medical miracles, biophysics is a growing dis- cipline worldwide. Yet in spite of the spectacular ad- vances in understanding the cell’s molecular machinery, something as widespread and pervasive as cancer re- mains a stubborn and growing medical problem. As the population ages, so the burden of cancer on society and on the economy is set to worsen.

  • Numerous abbreviations are used routinely throughout such texts and identifying their meaning is critical to understanding of the document. The problem is that abbreviations are highly ambiguous with respect to their meaning. For example, according to UMLS2 (2001), RA may stand for “rheumatoid arthritis”, “renal artery”, “right atrium”, “right atrial”, “refractory anemia”, “radioactive”, “right arm”, “rheumatic arthritis,” etc. Liu et al. (2001) show that 33% of abbreviations listed in UMLS are ambiguous. ...
