Advances in our understanding of the molecular principles underlining both health and disease
has revealed the existence of many regulatory polypeptides of significant medical potential. The
fact that such polypeptides are produced naturally within the body only in minute quantities
initially precluded their large-scale medical application. The development in the 1970s of the
twin techniques of genetic engineering and hybridoma technology marked the birth of the
modern biotech era.
This book has been written to enable health care workers to understand the principles of
managing an acute medical emergency safely and effectively.To achieve this aim it provides
a structured approach to medical emergencies, describing relevant pathophysiology
that will also help to explain physical signs and the rationale behind treatment.The first
edition of this manual (written by Terry Wardle) has undergone significant modification
directed by the working group and also, in particular, candidates from the first
The United States has seen major advances in medical care over the past decades, but
access to care at an affordable cost is not universal. Many Americans lack health care insurance
of any kind, and many others with insurance are nonetheless exposed to financial risk because of
high premiums, deductibles, co-pays, limits on insurance payments, and uncovered services. One
might expect that the U.S. poverty measure would capture these financial effects and trends in
them over time.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common neoplastic condition
afflicting men and constitutes a major health factor impacting
patients in every part of the world. Bladder neck obstruction secondary to
BPH can result in significant medical complications including renal failure,
urinary retention, recurrent urinary tract infection, bladder stones, significant
hematuria, and marked and disruptive bladder symptoms
This effort is the culmination of my lifelong attraction to medical terminology - that
which continues to be a source of fulfillment for me. Throughout, I have been impacted by
the enhanced efficiency and clarity which is inherent in medical nomenclature.
How do nurses view charting? Too often, it is the last load of the shift, in which haste and
other demands cloud a precise recall of details.
Medicine Chapter 7. Medical Disorders during Pregnancy
Medical Disorders during Pregnancy: Introduction
Approximately 4 million births occur in the United States each year. A significant proportion of these are complicated by one or more medical disorders. Three decades ago, many medical disorders were contraindications to pregnancy.
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.
Rubella (See also Chap. 186) Rubella virus is a known teratogen; first-trimester rubella carries a high risk of fetal anomalies, though the risk decreases significantly later in pregnancy. Congenital rubella may be diagnosed by percutaneous umbilical blood sampling with the detection of IgM antibodies in fetal blood. All pregnant women should be screened for their immune status to rubella. Indeed, all women of childbearing age, regardless of pregnancy status, should have their immune status for rubella verified and be immunized if necessary.
In patients with stable coronary artery disease, it remains unclear whether an initial
management strategy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with intensive
pharmacologic therapy and lifestyle intervention (optimal medical therapy) is superior
to optimal medical therapy alone in reducing the risk of cardiovascular events.
We conducted a randomized trial involving 2287 patients who had objective evidence
of myocardial ischemia and significant coronary artery disease at 50 U.S. and Canadian

Although dyspnea is a common symptom, there has been only limited investigation of
its prognostic significance among patients referred for cardiac evaluation.
We studied 17,991 patients undergoing myocardial-perfusion single-photon-emission
computed tomography during stress and at rest. Patients were divided into five categories
on the basis of symptoms at presentation (none, nonanginal chest pain, atypical angina,
typical angina, and dyspnea).
After studying this chapter you will be able to: Explain the medical assistant’s role in microbiology, describe how microorganisms cause disease, describe how microorganisms are classified and named, discuss the role of viruses in human disease, discuss the symptoms of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, discuss the role of bacteria in human disease,…
Spinal disorders are among the most common medical conditions, having a significant
impact on health-related quality of life, use of health care resources and
socioeconomic costs. As a therapeutic measure, spinal surgery is still one of the
most rapidly growing areas in clinical medicine, and is a major contributor to the
continuously increasing costs of modern-day medicine. Similarly, the increasingly
aging population will have a greater need for the treatment of degenerative
spinal disorders, particularly secondary spinal deformities and stenosis.
This book arose because of the huge amounts of clinical material that pass through
the Singapore General Hospital, the largest tertiary care hospital in Singapore. A
significant proportion of our patients come to us for a second opinion from the
neighboring countries. Often they come to consult us for an abnormality on a
chest radiograph. Pulmonary Medicine is largely based on the strong foundation of
the plain chest radiograph. Indeed, chest radiography is the single most common
investigation carried out in hospital practice.
Composites are engineered or naturally occurring materials made from two or more
constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties which
remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. Basically, they can be
categorized into two major types, i.e., structural composites with outstanding
mechanical properties and functional composites with various outstanding physical,
chemical or electrochemical properties. They have been widely used in a wide variety
of products, e.g.
The novel properties of multifunctional polymer nanocomposites make them useful for a broad range of applications in fields as diverse as space exploration, bioengineering, car manufacturing, and organic solar cell development, just to name a few. Presenting an overview of polymer nanocomposites, how they compare with traditional composites, and their increasing commercial importance, Multifunctional Polymer Nanocomposites conveys the significance and various uses of this new technology for a wide audience with different needs and levels of understanding. ...
Urologic laparoscopy is in the midst of a clinical resurgence thanks to improvements
in technology, education, and a new generation of urologic laparoscopists. At the time of
this writing, the problem of educating and training the vast majority of practicing urologists
in urologic laparoscopy is creating a significant burden on centers of excellence.
The purpose of Essential Urologic Laparoscopy: The Complete Clinical Guide is to
provide a practical, step-by-step guide to creating, maintaining and expanding a successful
practice in urologic laparoscopy.
