Part 1 book "The Washington Manual - Cardiology subspecialty consult" includes: Approach to the cardiovascular consult, approach to the cardiovascular consult, basic electrocardiography, evaluation of acute chest pain, evaluation of acute heart failure, approach to syncope,...
The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is the foremost international
textbook of medicine. Unrivalled in its coverage of the scientific aspects and
clinical practice of internal medicine and its subspecialties, it is a fixture in the
offices and wards of physicians around the world.
Available via www.oxfordmedicine.com, the online edition of the Oxford
Textbook of Medicine contains the full-text of the print edition, plus
freely available chapter summaries, a searchable collection of full-colour
illustrations, photographs, and figures, and links to all material referenced in
Endourology is one of the most important subspecialties in the field of urology because
of the widespread use of endoscopy for the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of upper
genitourinary tract pathologies. Although most clinical urologists incorporate some basic
endourology into their practices, complex upper tract pathology and anatomy require
more advanced endoscopic skills and instrumentation.
Advanced Endourology: The Complete Clinical Guide is intended as a resource guide
for all aspects of clinical endourology, particularly the more advanced procedures.
Water-quality engineering is a specialty area in environmental engineering that includes
the subspecialties of water treatment, wastewater treatment, and water-quality control in
natural systems. This textbook is intended to encompass the latter subspecialty, and the
content of this book constitutes baseline knowledge expected of water-quality engineers
This book has been written to fill a need for a basic but
comprehensive text dealing with all aspects of paediatric
ENT. It is aimed at trainees in our specialties who are
developing an interest in the paediatric aspects of their
work, at established ENT surgeons and audiologists who
have decided to specialise in this most enjoyable subspecialty,
or who wish to know more about paediatric ENT,
and as a work of reference for those who encounter particular
problems in their paediatric patients.
STROKE IS THE THIRD MOST COMMON CAUSE of death
and disability in the US. It is a complex disease, with many
causes, many presentations, and many levels of severity. Despite
recent medical advances, stroke remains a diffi cult disease
to diagnose and treat. In recognition of the importance of this
common disorder, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
(ABPN) instituted a new subspecialty examination in
With the first cystoscopy performed by Maximilian Nitze more than 100 years ago,
endoscopy developed step by step to become eventually a subspecialty in urology now
Manual Endourology addresses young trainees in urology and is written by experts
in this field who are also experienced teachers. It is hoped that the book will be helpful
to prepare the trainee in the first steps of these still fascinating techniques but will also
prevent the newcomer from mistakes and common complications....
Clinical neurophysiology encompasses the application of a wide variety of electrophysiologic methods to the
analysis and recording of normal function, as well as to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving
the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system and muscles. The steady
increase in growth of subspecialty knowledge and skill in neurology has led to the need for a compilation
of the whole range of physiologic methods applied in each of the major categories of neurologic disease.
Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine has a long and dis-
tinguished tradition in the ﬁeld of hematology. Maxwell
Wintrobe, whose work actually established hematology
as a distinct subspecialty of medicine, was a founding
editor of the book and participated in the ﬁrst seven edi-
tions, taking over for Tinsley Harrison as editor-in-chief
on the sixth and seventh editions. Wintrobe, born in
1901, began his study of blood in earnest in 1927 as
an assistant in medicine at Tulane University in New
Clinical transfusion medicine is an evolving subspecialty, which straddles
traditional areas of pathology and clinical hematology. This subspecialities
is concerned with aspects of blood procurement, including safety, logistics
and economics, and the appropriate use of blood products in different
clinical situations. This causes the transfusion medicine physician
to interact with (and occasionally come into conflict with!) surgeons, anesthesiologists,
internists, and many subspecialists in internal medicine,
particularly, oncologists and hematologists....
Among the subspecialties of internal medicine, medical oncology may have had the greatest impact
in changing the practice of medicine in the past four decades, as curative treatments have been
identified for a number of previously fatal malignancies such as testicular cancer, lymphomas, and
leukemia. New drugs have entered clinical use for disease presentations previously either
untreatable or amenable to only local means of therapy, such as surgery and irradiation.
Additionally, the medical profession exercises significant self-regulation to assure
the continuing competence of practicing physicians. Specialists in reproductive
medicine are certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology or the
American Board of Urology after completing residency training and passing
examinations. They may achieve subspecialty certification with additional training
in infertility and endocrinology. Continuing medical education and periodic
re-examination are required to maintain certification....
It is a great pleasure for me to be the editor of the book Contemporary Pediatrics.
Nowadays; there is lot of classical pediatric text books describing various well-known
topics. In these kinds of text books, there have always been similar topics, which are
written with the same styles. Nevertheless, in this book volume, beyond classical
themes, a different approach was made to current pediatric issues and topics.
The overall approach to learning medicine can be summed up in two questions: What is it? What do you do for it? The
goal is to have a concise review that is readable and easy to follow with algorithms, diagrams, radiographs, and pathologic findings.
This book is divided into subspecialty topics, each chapter written by an author(s) with clinical expertise in the designated
topic. Images and tables are provided. Each chapter has bulleted items that highlight key points. These may be summary points
from previous paragraphs or new points. Bulleted items also address typical clinical scenarios.
The subspecialty of population pharmacokinetics was introduced into clinical pharmacology
/ pharmacy in the late 1970s as a method for analyzing observational
data collected during patient drug therapy in order to estimate patient-based pharmacokinetic
parameters. It later became the basis for dosage individualization
and rational pharmacotherapy. The population pharmacokinetics method (i.e., the
population approach) was later extended to the characterization of the relationship
between pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and into the discipline of
Conservators have many specializations, from paintings to works of art on paper to photography,
and more. Those who specialize in outdoor sculpture also have subspecialties (bronze, stone,
wood, and so forth). Begin by locating several people whose skills and experience are comparable
and appear to match your needs. Professional qualifications are always the most important
criterion. Geographic proximity is helpful but not necessary.
Principles of Chemotherapy Medical oncology is the subspecialty of internal medicine that cares for and designs treatment approaches to patients with cancer, in conjunction with surgical and radiation oncologists. The core skills of the medical oncologist include the use of drugs that may have a beneficial effect on the natural history of the patient's illness or favorably influence the patient's quality of life. In general, the curability of a tumor is inversely related to tumor volume and directly related to drug dose.
The subspecialty of cytopathology is 60 years old and has become
established as a solid and reliable discipline in medicine. As expected,
cytopathology literature has expanded in a remarkably short
period of time, from a few textbooks prior to the 1980s to a current
library of texts and journals devoted exclusively to cytomorphology
that is substantial. Essentials in Cytopathology does not presume
to replace any of the distinguished textbooks in Cytopathology. Instead,
the series will publish generously illustrated and user-friendly
guides for both pathologists and clinicians....
