In the Preface to the first edition of the Handbook of Veterinary Procedures and Emergency
Treatment, published in 1969, Dr. Kirk and Dr. Bistner described the format of that book
as being divided into six sections, “each emphasizing a facet of early examination, clinical
methods, or emergency care.”
Today, 37 years later, those original objectives remain unchanged. What has changed,
however, are the numerous advances in clinical diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities in
companion animal medicine.
The field of Pain Medicine has evolved over the last 20 years to include an
increasing array of sophisticated and technologically complex diagnostic and therapeutic
procedures. Concurrent to this advancement has been the development of a
battery of pharmacological options to treat pain, from extended-release formulations
of analgesics to antidepressants and anticonvulsants designed to treat specific types of
In this important book, Erving Polster - coauthor of the landmark work "Gestalt Therapy Integrated" - greatly expands the therapeutic utility of the concept of self. A Population of Selves offers therapists new ways of thinking about the self, as well as specific procedures to help patients realize a powerful and healthy sense of self: a goal at the very heart of the therapeutic process. In an innovative expansion of therapeutic theory, Polster shows how the human reflex to summarize and animate experiences serves as a natural springboard for the formation of selves.
In times of overburdened daily practice, we are all looking for concise,
practical books; books that are easy to consult and in which we rapidly find
clear answers to specific problems or suddenly arising queries. Musculoskeletal
Procedures: Diagnostic and Therapeutic belongs to this category of books.
Chapter 22 - X-rays and diagnostic radiology. After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Explain how x-rays are used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, compare invasive and noninvasive diagnostic procedures, carry out the medical assistant’s role in x-ray and diagnostic radiology testing,…
When you finish this chapter, you should: Carry out the role of the medical assistant in the medical specialty of gynecology, carry out the role of the medical assistant in the medical specialty of obstetrics, identify diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed in obstetrics and gynecology, relate the role of medical assisting to the medical specialty of urology,...
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, sporadic attempts to perform
esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) using fiberscopes
designed for adults were made in children. However, the actual
“birth’’ of pediatric EGD occurred a few years later when
prototypes of pediatric flexible gastroscopes and panendoscopes
became commercially available.
Pharmacologically induced sedation has become pervasive throughout
medical practice to accomplish diagnostic and minor therapeutic procedures
effectively and humanely. As diagnostic techniques and technical procedures
become more complex, the need for sedation in patients with varied
co-morbid conditions, in diverse settings produces a series of questions
regarding safety and effectiveness.
Despite significant technological advances in recent years, their impact on our overall health and social, well-being is not always clear to see. Perhaps, one of the best examples of this can be highlighted by the fact that mortality rates as a result of cerebrovascular diseases have hardly changed, if at all. This places cerebrovascular diseases as one of the most prominent causes of both disability and death. In Cuba, for instance, a total of 22,000 cases of cerebrovascular diseases are reported each year in a country where life expectancy should increase to 80 years in the near future.
Rapid technical advances in medical imaging, including its growing application to
drug/gene therapy and invasive/interventional procedures, have attracted significant
interest in close integration of research in life sciences, medicine, physical sciences
and engineering. This is motivated by the clinical and basic science research requirement
of obtaining more detailed physiological and pathological information about the
body for establishing localized genesis and progression of diseases.
Endoscopy has had a major impact in the development of modern medicine and other medical specialties. The field of endoscopic procedure has developed over the last decade. By using different data it provided a better understanding of pathogenic mechanisms, described new entities and used for early detection, diagnostic procedures and therapeutic procedures. The advantages of many technical advances and modern endoscopic equipments, endoscopy has had a developed spectacularly.

Several studies have compared outcomes for coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG)
and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but most were done before the availability
of stenting, which has revolutionized the latter approach.
We used New York’s cardiac registries to identify 37,212 patients with multivessel disease
who underwent CABG and 22,102 patients with multivessel disease who underwent
PCI from January 1, 1997, to December 31, 2000.
For tracking the marketing related behaviors
of online communities, “netnography” is a
stand-alone method. It is a way in which to
understand the discourse and interactions of
people engaging in computer-mediated
communication about market-oriented topics.
This involves research and investigational work concerned with the development of new
or revision of existing class and grade standards, including such matters as: (1) gaining
cooperation of producer, trade and consumer organizations; (2) factfinding to arrive at
the terms and conditions suitable to the needs of the various elements of the industry; (3)
investigation for such factors as requirements for storing and handling, designation under
which the commodity is usually marketed, changes in methods of preparation, harvesting
and marketing, new means of preserving quality or cond...
Medical Implications of Circadian Rhythmicity
Prominent circadian variations have been reported in the incidence of acute myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death, and stroke, the leading causes of death in the United States. Platelet aggregability is increased after arising in the early morning hours, coincident with the peak incidence of these cardiovascular events. A better understanding of the possible role of circadian rhythmicity in the acute destabilization of a chronic condition such as atherosclerotic disease could improve the understanding of the pathophysiology.
