Aimed at health care professionals and their colleagues, ministers of religion and funeral directors, this comprehensive work of reference describes the complex procedures required when someone dies. The information should be of value to all those who are concerned with the correct handling of situations as diverse as fatal mass disasters and the rites that are associated with those who hold unfamiliar religious beliefs. The guide is in three parts: legal and technical aspects; considerations for the living, care of the dying, and death with dignity; and religious, ethnic and cultural aspects of dying and death. The author combines medico-legal facts and practical, sensitive advice.

R2,337 Discovery Miles 23 370 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Abundant evidence indicates that TENS can be used effectively to alleviate certain pain syndromes. For patients suffering from chronic musculo-skeletal pain in particular, TENS offers an alternative means of pain management. This book addresses the need among physiotherapists for a practical manual on the application of this relatively new technique. Numerous illustrations provide guidelines for the choice of stimulation parameters, the selection of electrode positions, as well as other aspects related to technique. A brief introduction to the neurophysiological mechanisms of pain and the pain-relieving effects of TENS is also given. These special features make this comprehensive presentation of particular interest to physiotherapists and clinicians actively engaged in the management of patients suffering from pain.

Pain--it is the most common complaint presented to physicians. Yet pain is subjective--it cannot be measured directly and is difficult to validate. Evaluating claims based on pain poses major problems for the Social Security Administration (SSA) and other disability insurers. This volume covers the epidemiology and physiology of pain; psychosocial contributions to pain and illness behavior; promising ways of assessing and measuring chronic pain and dysfunction; clinical aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation; and how the SSA's benefit structure and administrative procedures may affect pain complaints.

In September 1983 the First International Headache Congress took place, the founding congress of the International Headache Society (lHS). This meeting was attended by around 200 headache specialists from some 20 countries. One of the principal goals of the IHS, which was formed in London in 1982, is to promote and stimulate interest and research in the headache field. In addition to the sponsorship of continued-education events, this also involves the coordination of scientific pro jects and the organization of future conferences. There is no doubt that headaches represent an everyday problem in medical practice. When the first headache clinics were established some years ago, they were regarded as very progressive. Today there are special outpatient centers and clinics for headache patients. However, this specialization has certainly not progressed very far. The fact is that differential diagnosis and treatment of recurrent and chron ic headaches represents a broad field that cuts across many disciplines. Headaches are thus relevant not only to the neurologist, but also to the psychiatrist, the neuro surgeon, the internist, the endocrinologist, the psychologist, the pharmacologist, and the biochemist. Despite intensive research in numerous and very disparate medical disciplines there are still no generally accepted pathophysiologic concepts for many headache syndromes. Realizing the importance of a multidisciplinary fo rum, the IHS assumed the organization of this congress in collaboration with the German Migraine Society."

The existence of a differential block is still part of the theory of regional anaesthesia. In 1980 it was described in detail by Cousins and Bridenbough in their standard work Neural Blockade. The theory of differential sensitivity of fibres in the peripheral nervous system essentially goes back to Gasser and Erlanger, who in 1929 established that when isolated peripheral nerves are electri- cally stimulated in the presence of increasing concentrations of co- caine, the compound action potentials of slow-conducting fibres are blocked before those of fast-conducting fibres show any measur- able changes. In man, regional anaesthesia begins subjectively with a feeling of warmth, objectively with a corresponding increase in skin tem- perature. There is then, in order of occurence, loss of sensation of cold, heat and pain, and pressure and touch, and fmally loss of voluntary motoricity. In recovery from anaesthesia, these return in the reverse order. The theory of differential block is by no means undisputed. In 1981, de Jong, commenting in Anesthesiology on the work pub- lished in that journal by Gissen et al. which showed a new sequence of differential sensitivity in the rabbit, wrote, "There remains plen- ty to be done yet before the book on differential nerve block can be closed".

The phenomenon of phantom limb was described in medical literature at least as early as 1545 by Ambroise Pare, according to the notes in the translation of Lemos' dissertation, "On the Continuing Pain of an Amputated Limb", by Price and Twombly [9]. This strange experience was brought to public attention by a popular essay anonymously published 1866 by Mitchell concerning the story of George Dedlow, a quadriamputee who described his invisible limbs [7]. In 1871 Mitchell wrote under his own name, and was the. first to use the term "phantom limb" [8]. In this work, he also corrected some erroneous beliefs that had arisen from his 1866 essay [13]. Most amputees report feeling a phantom limb almost immediately after amputation of an arm or a leg [11]. It is a positive sensation, usually described as tingling or numbness, which is not painful. The most distal parts of the limb, particulary the digits, thumb, and index, are the strongest and most persisting phantom sites, and may be the only parts to appear even after removal of a whole limb. The elbow or knee is sometimes involved, the forearm or lower leg rarely, and the upper arm and thigh almost never [5]. The phantom thus appears to consist predominantly of those parts which have the most extensive representa tion in the thalamus and in the cerebral cortex.

This highly engaging title offers a concise, state-of-the-art overview of the management of sciatica and chronic pain. Written by a well-known neurologist, the book explores the multifaceted approach to the management of sciatica and chronic pain from many viewpoints, including the pharmacologic and surgical, as well as less orthodox methods. In discussing the many different aspects of pain - including neural networks, neural transmitters and genetic viewpoints - the book also provides a thorough review of how various factors interact to make us perceive pain. Importantly, the neuroscience and medical jargon that goes with the field is minimized by the author by defining terms as they are introduced and providing a glossary with definitions of key terms. Contributing to the unique nature of this highly instructive book, three patients with sciatica and chronic pain are followed serially throughout the text to illustrate important concepts that are discussed. A wide range of charts, figures and tables help clarify new concepts as well. Practical and illustrative, Sciatica and Chronic Pain: Past, Present and Future will be of great interest to a wide audience, including medical trainees and practicing physicians at all stages of their careers. Patients may find the book of significant value as well.

This cutting-edge book is a quick reference guide to the evidence-based evaluation, diagnosis, and management of the broad spectrum of orofacial disorders. Each chapter is devoted to a particular disease or disorder and presents advances in our understanding of the condition, the most recent evaluation and diagnostic strategies, and up-to-date treatment approaches. In addition, strategies for integration of care into routine dental practice are explained, and information provided on how to comprehensively diagnose and manage orofacial disorders. The coverage encompasses the latest technological advances in the field, such as novel pharmaceuticals, diagnostic tools, gene transfer techniques, radiotherapy modalities, and a vast array of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches including complementary and alternative therapies for orofacial disorders.Although the management of orofacial disorders is emerging as a distinct field of dentistry, many dentists and physicians are unfamiliar with recent advances in the care of patients with these disorders including orofacial pain, oral lesions and cancer, malodor, xerostomia, obstructive sleep apnea, bruxism and oral parafunctional behaviors, temporomandibular disorders, occlusal dysesthesias, orofacial neuropathic pains, and headaches. This book, written by world class experts, is deliberately geared to the level of understanding of a clinician. It will serve as an ideal evidence-based reference and source of specific clinical recommendations in daily practice.
