From the moment of diagnosis, the cancer patient embarks on a journey that can prove both daunting and overwhelming. Fears and choices abound, along with the need to understand the nature and ramifications of the specific illness. Having witnessed this devastating predicament among countless patients in his own extensive practice as a cancer specialist, Dr. Michael Sherry felt compelled to write a lucid and comprehensive cancer handbook for patients and their families coping with the daily reality of the disease. Confronting Cancer: How to Care for Today and Tomorrow is a practical and readily understandable resource book that interprets the complexities of cancer for the layperson. In order to guide the patient and caregiver through the successive phases of the disease, including diagnosis, treatment, and day-to-day living, Dr. Sherry has carefully organized the book into three parts: Part One emphasizes the distinctive nature of specific cancers (such as breast, lung, skin, and colon) and explains the basic rationale for treatment Part Two discusses orthodox and unorthodox therapies and Part Three details common problems encountered by the patient (including getting a second opinion, frequent symptoms, and pain control). The author also includes vital information on the nature and treatment of less familiar cancers affecting bladder and kidney function, the testicular area, and 'unknown primary organ.' While the vast majority of the over one million cancer patients in the United States receive technically sophisticated treatments, most patients are bewildered by the intricacies of the treatment process. Confronting Cancer clearly explains major cancer treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, bone marrow transplantation, investigational therapy, 'no therapy,' and the dangers of cancer quackery.
Written by an expert author team at the renowned Boston Children's Hospital, USA, The Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia Handbook provides a comprehensive yet concise overview of the anesthetic management of pediatric patients with congenital heart disease. This book is divided into two parts. The first part provides an introduction to the basic assessment of patients, including cardiovascular physiology, pathophysiology and the underlying concepts in coronary heart disease, preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management, and interpretation of cardiac catheterization data. The second part of the book addresses disorders and diseases in a templated manner covering the anatomical and physiological features, surgical therapies, anesthetic approach and postoperative management. Chapters on the heart and heart and lung transplantation consider the additional complexities of those patients and anesthetic considerations for non-cardiac surgery after heart transplantation. The anesthesiologist caring for patients with congenital heart disease faces a myriad of challenges in the perioperative management of these complex individuals. This book provides: * A concise and easily referable guide ideal for use during anesthesiology residency training and fellowships. * A templated chapter layout ideal for easy referral by wider members of the multidisciplinary team, such as cardiologists, cardiac intensivists, perfusionists, and surgeons. * Helpful illustrations and a bulleted content for rapid reference. * Guidelines on specific lesions for the pediatric anesthesiologist caring for cardiac patients presenting for non-cardiac surgery. This book is a valuable resource for all anesthesiology and cardiac critical care providers who manage patients with congenital heart disease, and an ideal study aid.
This volume critically evaluates the latest legal reform of China, covering major areas such as trade and securities law, online privacy law, criminal law, human rights and international law. It represents a bold departure from the most recent works on Chinese legal reform by engaging the ideas of experts in contemporary Chinese law with the archival scholarship of Chinese legal historians. This unique interdisciplinary feature affords readers a more nuanced view of the complexities and specificities of how China has problematised legal reforms in various historical contexts when building a progressive yet sustainable legal system. This volume appraises the most current reform in Chinese law by considering China's engagement with globalisation, increasingly complicated domestic situation and historical legal transplantation experiences. It will be of huge interest to students, researchers and practitioners interested in Chinese law and policy, China and Asian studies and Chinese legal history.
