Nurses! Test yourself in Anatomy and Physiology (Paperback, Ed): Katherine Rogers, William Scott Nurses! Test yourself in Anatomy and Physiology (Paperback, Ed)
Katherine Rogers, William Scott
R501 Discovery Miles 5 010 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

""Many Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) textbooks have been written, most of them are limited by the absence of a significant bank of self test material. This book fills that space by providing the student engaged in active learning opportunities to assess their learning in all the core areas of A&P. The explanatory feedback material following answers to the test questions is excellent. Now the student has a resource that actually guides them towards success. It will complement any course that includes introductory A&P. This book will be a very useful partner to any student new to the subject that is motivated to learn and do well."
Jim Jolly, Head of Academic Unit for Long Term Conditions, School of Healthcare, University of Leeds, UK

"This book will be of great benefit to student nurses revising for exams as well as registered nurses wishing to refresh their memory. The authors have a good awareness of the areas where students struggle, and have focused special attention on those."
Dorothy Adam, Lecturer, The Robert Gordon University, UK

"This book is the perfect companion to help nurses explore their own understanding of this key subject. Students and newly qualified nurses alike will find the different kinds of tests a valuable revision aid."
James Pearson-Jenkins, Senior Lecturer of Adult Acute Nursing, University of Wolverhampton, UK

Yoga Biomechanics - Stretching redefined (Paperback): Yoga Biomechanics - Stretching redefined (Paperback)
R997 Discovery Miles 9 970 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The book gives teachers a grounding in biomechanics so that they can easily use yoga and/or stretching with their students. Most yoga teacher schools provide only limited training in anatomy and biomechanics, and the study of the effect of mechanical forces on structure and function is often overlooked and/or misunderstood. Aesthetic cues (ie instructing students where to place their hands and feet in yoga asana) may not be biomechanically appropriate for everyone. Readers will learn to fit the pose to the student, rather than making the student fit the pose. This book: Highlights useful, evidence-based applications and examples of yoga and/or stretching. Provides insight into critical interpretation of research findings helping the reader to avoid clinical assumptions. Encourages variety in popular modern day asana, using yoga props and a keen eye, based on the understanding of how tissues adapt to applied loads. Educates yoga teachers to think beyond common scripted yoga education. Supports teachers to understand biomechanics, rather than simply memorizing anatomy, empowering them to make smart choices for instructing a variety of populations in both private and group class settings.

Appetite and Its Discontents - Science, Medicine, and the Urge to Eat, 1750-1950 (Hardcover): Elizabeth A. Williams Appetite and Its Discontents - Science, Medicine, and the Urge to Eat, 1750-1950 (Hardcover)
Elizabeth A. Williams
R2,527 Discovery Miles 25 270 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Why do we eat? Is it instinct, or some other impetus? Despite the necessity of food, anxieties about what and how to eat are widespread in our culture, and scientists and physicians continue to have shifting theories about the phenomenon of appetite and its causes and norms. In Appetite and Its Discontents, Elizabeth A. Williams charts the history of inquiry into appetite between 1750 and 1950, as scientific and medical concepts of appetite shifted alongside developments in physiology, natural history, psychology, and ethology. Williams argues that trust in appetite was undermined in the mid-eighteenth century, when researchers who investigated ingestion and digestion began claiming that science alone could say which ways of eating were healthy and which were not. Tracing nineteenth- and twentieth-century conflicts over the nature of appetite, Williams explores contemporary worries about eating through the lens of science and medicine to show us how appetite--once a matter of personal inclination--became an object of science.

R2,328 Discovery Miles 23 280 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The abiotic characteristics of the environment-including temperature, oxygen availability, salinity, and hydrostatic pressure-present challenges to all biochemical structures and processes. This volume first examines the nature of these perturbations to biochemical systems and then elucidates the major adaptive strategies that enable organisms from all Domains of Life-Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya-to conserve common types of biochemical structures and processes across a wide range of environments. In addition to these conservative adaptations that foster a biochemical unity among diverse species, other adaptations can be viewed as innovative changes that enable organisms to exploit new features of the environment that may themselves be the result of biological activities.

This book provides up-to-date scientific information on the pathways by which psychosocial stress can affect the auditory system and describes current approaches to the management of patients with stress-related tinnitus. The latest evidence is presented on aspects such as the role of stress hormones in auditory function, the effects of allostatic load, circadian sensitivity to auditory trauma, and the association between stress-related biomarkers and tinnitus. The clinically oriented chapters discuss psychometric instruments of value in the tinnitus clinic and present stress-related tinnitus treatment protocols and outcome measures. It is widely acknowledged that the tinnitus percept acts as a stressor. However, it is also now evident that psychosocial stress can play a causative role in tinnitus and that the impact varies according to the level, duration, and quality of the stress. Assessment of the types and levels of stress in tinnitus patients before, during, and after treatment is therefore very important. Healthcare professionals attending tinnitus patients will benefit from the information that this book provides on the relationship between tinnitus and stress and from the practical guidance that it offers.

The sirtuin family of proteins (SIRT1-7) received a lot of attention in recent years as they serve as metabolic sensors that control not only metabolism, but also aging and lifespan regulation. As such, sirtuins are strong targets for the treatment of age-related metabolic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Indeed, many research groups as well as pharmaceutical companies discovered food components and/or drugs that target the sirtuins and provide significant health benefits. This book focuses on various aspects of sirtuin biology, from basic biochemistry, via molecular function, to its role in (fighting) human disease.

Phosphatases, such as TNAP are fundamental in regulating the roles of cellular, and consequently numerous body functions. TNAP is a ubiquitous enzyme with a wide spectrum of substrates and specificity. Regulation at the cellular level and the lack of TNAP activity is a lethal condition. Recent findings of a highly specific regional, laminar and subcellular localization of TNAP in the cerebral cortex indicates that in addition to its metabolic and skeletal functions, TNAP also plays a role in regulating cerebral functions, most probably cognition. In fact, TNAP disturbance could result in complex diseases such as epilepsy, developmental retardation and Alzheimer's disease. Available data suggest that, regarding brain functions, TNAP is a potentially important target of clinical research. This book aims to provide an overview of our current understanding of the functions of TNAP in the brain and on other tissues and organs.
