Brand: Brand: Haworth Social Work Practice Press
Social Work Theory and Practice with the Terminally Ill, second edition, takes a compassionate look at ways that social workers can help dying people and their families. The social workers who work most effectively with terminally ill patients and their families are the ones who best understand the multifaceted nature of the dying process and its impact on the the patient, the family, and even on the health care professionals who work with patients at the end of life. Dr. Parry--who specializes in dying and bereavement--offers astute observations on the stages of dealing with the diagnosis of a terminal illness and the impending death that patients and their families confront. This updated second edition provides valuable new information on ways that social workers can help those with AIDS and their families, on traumatic death from any cause, and on the grieving processes of parents.Social Work Theory and Practice with the Terminally Ill, second edition, also includes stimulating discussions on:
In touching case studies, this volume illustrates the particular needs and concerns of the terminally ill and their families--impending losses, financial worries, job concerns, pain, unfinished business, and spiritual needs--and reviews successful interventions used by social workers to help patients and their families work through the dying process.

|A Guide to Interpretation of Hemodynamic Data in the Coronary Care Unit
Lowest new price: $42.15
Lowest used price: $2.59
List price: $58.99
Author: Scott W. Sharkey MD
Since 1970, when the pulmonary artery catheter was introduced into clinical medicine, the technique of hemodynamic monitoring has expanded rapidly. The use of this essential procedure now encompasses the coronary care unit, the medical intensive care unit, the surgical intensive care unit, and the operating room; and an entire spectrum of physicians require this skill, including anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, pulmonologists, nephrologists, critical care specialists, and cardiologists. Learning the proper performance of invasive techniques is essential for providing high quality patient care. This easy-to-use guide provides every important aspect of hemodynamic monitoring, and presents it in a straightforward and organized format. The book's table of contents is evidence of its exceptional organization and completeness: / Normal Physiology / Respiration / Cardiac Output / Arrhythmias / Acute Mitral Regurgitation and the V Wave / Tricuspid Regurgitation / Acute Left Ventricular Infarction / Right Ventricular Infarction / Acute Left Ventricular Ischemia / Chronic Congestive Heart Failure / Pericardial Tamponade / Pericardial Constriction & Restrictive Cardiomyopathy / Pulmonary Embolism / Trouble / Normal Values / Techniques Used in this Book.
|Electrocardiography of Clinical Arrhythmias
Lowest new price: $72.95
Lowest used price: $77.00
List price: $99.95
Author: Charles Fisch
Because arrhythmias can present in so many different forms, the only way to be certain of an interpretation is to understand the underlying ECG mechanism of arrhythmia. This is especially important in choosing a management strategy, as similar arrhythmias of differing origin may have vastly different therapies/treatments. Unfortunately, standard teaching methods can seem to divorce the theoretical knowledge required for diagnosis from the hands-on reading of ECGs.
To achieve a balance of practicality and competency, the two parts of this book are equally divided between concrete example and didactic theory. Section I provides multiple ECG readings of the most commonly encountered simple and complex arrhythmias, and includes differential diagnosis where appropriate. These readings are presented with a minimum of theory, and are repetitively presented in multiple permutations, as they would be encountered in ECG reading room or on the wards. Section II provides a more in-depth discussion of ECG mechanisms and arrhythmogenesis. Attention is focused on the relevant underlying electrophysiology and the deductive processes used to reach the diagnoses of complex arrhythmias.
This book can serve as a quick and handy reference for systematic, rule-based arrhythmic diagnoses, as well as an authoritative teaching text for learning the underlying theory and mechanics. It will be of great interest to students and clinicians at all levels, including cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and others who care for patients with cardiovascular disease, ICU and ER staff, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, and surgeons.

THE account of the use of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients
A Doody's Core Title for 2011!
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This second edition continues the role established by its predecessor as the leading work in the field. Mechanical ventilation, as a defining event of critical care, has seen an explosion of physiologic and outcomes research in the past decade. Our thinking about management of ARDS, ventilator-induced lung injury, patient-ventilator interaction, and infectious complications has changed dramatically. All of this recent work is summarized here."--Doody's Review Service
Editor Martin J. Tobin--past editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine--has completely revised this text, acclaimed by The Lancet as "the bible of mechanical ventilation." The new edition is a cover-to-cover revision of the original content, filled with cutting-edge scientific insights from more than 200 contributors representing critical care, pulmonary medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, basic science, and radiology.
- Up-to-the minute, rigorous coverage that addresses every important scientific, clinical, and technical aspect of the field
- 70 well-organized chapters that encompass the full scope of mechanical ventilation, including the physical basis of mechanical ventilation; conventional, alternative, noninvasive, and unconventional methods of ventilator support; complications and airway management; and ethics and economics
- 24 new chapters on current issues in mechanical ventilation: Closed Loop Ventilation, Inhaled Antibiotic Therapy, Sleep and Speech in the Ventilated Patient, Mechanical Ventilation in ARDS, Ventilation Outside the ICU, and more
- Highly relevant new chapters on pharmacological and adjuvant therapy
- Greater use of tables and lists that conveniently summarize key information and solidify chapter concepts
