Tarascon Pain Pocketbook 1st Edition (2018) (PDF) by Sergey M. Motov

0
The Tarascon Pain Pocketbook is a must-have resource for physicians and medical professionals responsible for prescribing and administering pain medications, including emergency medical doctors, emergency nurses, family doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and perioperative nurses. Following the CERTA concept (Channels, Enzymes, Receptor Targeted Action) this pocketbook helps prescribers find the right balance of therapies and medications while working to reduce opiate use and promoting patient-specific, pain syndrome targeted analgesia. This targeted, patient-focused analgesic approach allows for a broader utilization of combinations of non-opioid analgesics and more refined and judicious use of opioids. The new Tarascon Pain Pocketbook is an invaluable resource for the hundreds of thousands of prescribers who manage patients’ pain.

Step By Step Approach To Endoscopic Cadaveric Dissection Paranasal Sinuses And The Ventral Skull Base (2019) (PDF) by Narayanan Janakiram

0
Step-By-Step Approach to Endoscopic Cadaveric Dissection: Paranasal Sinuses and the Ventral Skull Base elucidates on Dr Janakiram's "15 Commandments," which are the fundamental surgical principles he and his students follow for endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery. Following these principles makes endonasal endoscopic surgery safe, effective and relatively trouble-free. The unique feature of Dr Janakiram's approach is, as eminent neurosurgeon Dr Roman Bošnjak explains, positioning his knowledge and experience from his difficult skull base surgery cases into cadaveric dissection lessons. Thus, the most significant aspect of this approach is the learning and message that even experienced surgeons and authors cannot dodge the hard work required in the dissection lab.

Sports Nutrition for Paralympic Athletes 2nd Edition (2019) (PDF) by Elizabeth Broad

0
Sports participation opportunities for individuals with impairments are increasing. Whether an athlete is beginning a sport or competing on the world stage for a podium finish, nutrition is recognized as being integral to optimizing their health, training capacity, and performance. Some athletes with impairments are physiologically similar to their able-bodied counterparts, whereby the application of sports nutrition principles is straightforward. However, athletes with certain impairments require a very individualized approach when applying these principles in a practical way.

Sonographic Peripheral Nerve Topography: A Landmark-based Algorithm (2019) (PDF) by Hannes Gruber

0
This first of its kind richly illustrated book provides a tabular and schematic representation of all the peripheral nerves in the human body using a standardized landmark-based algorithm for the definition of the nerve’s “Point of optimal visibility (POV)”. In this atlas the nerves of the human body are depicted with high-frequent ultrasound probes with frequencies up to 24 MHz: it presents not only the “known” large nerves (N. ischiadicus, N. femoralis, N. medianus etc.), but also the tiny nerves you have learned in your anatomy sessions but forgotten in the course of time! Based on clear illustrations using palpaple/visible external and easily accessible internal landmarks, it offers “nerve sonographers” a clear sonoanatomic guidance on how to easily find the nerve. Additionally, it describes the exact positioning of the probe so that each nerve can be found at its point of optimal visibility.
