List price: $19.95
Author: Renée Le Verrier

A daily guide to yoga practice designed for people with dystonia, muscle imbalance, rigidity, and spasms due to such causes as Parkinson's, stroke, and multiple sclerosis. The focus is on rebuilding strength and flexibility as well as physical and emotional balance. Part 1 prepares the reader for practicing yoga. It includes an introduction, a chapter on how to begin, from where and when to practice, how to use the book, safety precautions, and a note to teachers.Part 2 flows as a yoga class would, with breathing exercises, modified poses, and guided relaxation. The poses presented in later chapters include a variety of difficulty levels, from seated to standing, with step-by-step directions and easy-to-follow photos. The mind/body connection is woven throughout,and each chapter concludes with a brief list of why the day's practice is beneficial along with suggestions of how to apply the poses and concepts to everyday activities. LIM (Less Is More) Yoga, it tones and stretches gently, without exertion and with an emphasis on relaxation.

Endothelium, Nitric Oxide, and Atherosclerosis: From Basic Mechanisms to Clinical Implications

Endothelium, Nitric Oxide, and Atherosclerosis: From Basic Mechanisms to Clinical Implications Lowest new price: $25.75
Lowest used price: $4.87
List price: $166.95

The opening chapter of this book, by scientist Dr. Robert Furchgott, details the discovery of endothelium’s role in the vasodilator effect of acetycholine in 1978. Its subsequent identification as nitric oxide has been critical to cardiovascular medicine in understanding the regulation of vascular homeostasis. This simple observation won Dr. Furchgott a Nobel Prize in 1998.

Spanning from these initial observations to recent clinical investigations, this work offers an invaluable historical reference and clinical explanation about the intracellular mechanisms that regulate and stimulate endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). The basic mechanisms leading to endothelial dysfunction in cardiovascular disease complement information about the biological role and regulation of endothelial nitric oxide. Clinical studies of impaired endothelial function in patients with different cardiovascular conditions also reveal important and effective therapeutic strategies.

Written for both established physicians and scientists investigating the basic mechanisms and treatment of cardiovascular disease, as well as medical students who want to initiate themselves in the study of endothelial regulation of vascular physiology, many will find this comprehensive review a stimulus for new research.


Pulmonary Pathology - Tumors

Pulmonary Pathology - Tumors Lowest new price: $27.99
Lowest used price: $16.57
List price: $264.00
Author: David H. Dail

Diagnosis of tumors is among the most commonly performed tasks in pulmonary pathology, and the chapters on tumors in Dail and Hammar: Pulmonary Pathology have been singled out for special praise for their authoritative discussions and comprehensive lists of references. In reviewing the first edition, Diagnostic Cytopathology said: "the chapter on common lung neoplasms is like a book within a book." In revising the chapter on uncommon lung tumors, Dr. Dail added nearly 500 new references and 100 new illustrations.
The present proposal is to make the chapters on tumors from the second edition of Pulmonary Pathology available to the broad range of pathology residents and clinicians who will not buy Pulmonary Pathology, 2nd ed. for their personal libraries because of its size and cost.


Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers

Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers Lowest new price: $133.51
Lowest used price: $125.00
List price: $154.95
Author: Babatunde A. Ogunnaike
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Many of the problems that engineers face involve randomly varying phenomena of one sort or another. However, if characterized properly, even such randomness and the resulting uncertainty are subject to rigorous mathematical analysis.

Taking into account the uniquely multidisciplinary demands of 21st-century science and engineering, Random Phenomena: Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers provides students with a working knowledge of how to solve engineering problems that involve randomly varying phenomena. Basing his approach on the principle of theoretical foundations before application, Dr. Ogunnaike presents a classroom-tested course of study that explains how to master and use probability and statistics appropriately to deal with uncertainty in standard problems and those that are new and unfamiliar.

Giving students the tools and confidence to formulate practical solutions to problems, this book offers many useful features, including:

  • Unique case studies to illustrate the fundamentals and applications of probability and foster understanding of the random variable and its distribution

  • Examples of development, selection, and analysis of probability models for specific random variables

  • Presentation of core concepts and ideas behind statistics and design of experiments

  • Selected "special topics," including reliability and life testing, quality assurance and control, and multivariate analysis
  • As classic scientific boundaries continue to be restructured, the use of engineering is spilling over into more non-traditional areas, ranging from molecular biology to finance. This book emphasizes fundamentals and a "first principles" approach to deal with this evolution. It illustrates theory with practical examples and case studies, equipping readers to deal with a wide range of problems beyond those in the book.

    About the Author:
    Professor Ogunnaike is Interim Dean of Engineering at the University of Delaware. He is the recipient of the 2008 American Automatic Control Council's Control Engineering Practice Award, the ISA's Donald P. Eckman Education Award, the Slocomb Excellence in Teaching Award, and was elected into the US National Academy of Engineering in 2012.

    Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users

    Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users Lowest new price: $25.84
    Lowest used price: $10.42
    List price: $31.25
    Author: Committee for the Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users

    NIOSH and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) share responsibility for overseeing respiratory protection in the workplace and have established regulations for this purpose. Specifically, NIOSH has issued regulations which define respirator testing and certification. OSHA has issued regulations which define conditions under which employers are required to maintain respiratory protection programs in general industry, shipyards, marine terminals, and construction.

    In 2005, NIOSH contracted with the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to study the NIOSH-sponsored Anthrotech study along with its supporting information and reports, and to examine and report on the adequacy and relevance of the study protocol, the analyses conducted, the resulting anthropometric dataset, and the appropriateness of the respirator fit-test panels derived from the new dataset.

    Assessment of the NIOSH Head-and-Face Anthropometric Survey of U.S. Respirator Users focuses on the establishment of the scientific base required for certification standards of respirators, not their use in the workplace. This report describes and analyzes the anthropometric measurements performed by Anthrotech for its NIOSH-sponsored study. This report looks at the survey methods used by Anthrotech in the study, and examines how Anthrotech analyzed its data to derive fit-test panels and suggests some ways that analysis could be improved. This report discusses future directions, pointing toward further analyses of the data and offers suggestions for moving from research to practice.
