Description: ARE YOU READY? GET RESIDENT READY.
Inspired by the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine's popular course, Resident Readiness: Internal Medicine prepares you for success during your medical internship. Inside is a full range of clinical scenarios you may experience during your internal medicine residency, supported by comprehension questions with detailed answer explanations and tips to remember. You will also learn the clinical problem-solving process so you can think quickly on your feet, especially when time is critical. With the book's step-by-step guidance, you will gain the confidence you need to perform at your best on Day One of your residency.
Beyond treating your patient, Resident Readiness prepares you to
- Deal successfully with emergencies on the floor
- Safely hand off patients
- Handle call
- Discharge and follow up with your patients
- Smooth your transition and be ready for residency
- Case-based approach brings your readiness to the next level
- Targets what you really need to know to care for patients on day one
Description: Structural and functional abnormalities of arteries and veins manifest clinically in a broad spectrum of disorders, including aneurysmal disease, atherosclerosis, vasculitis, venous insufficiency, microvascular complications, thrombo-embolism and lower limb ulceration. Many of these are common and/or chronic conditions which present for initial assessment by primary health care workers. This new edition is a practical guide to the most commonly presenting disorders, and provides a structured approach to clinical assessment, investigations and management. The last few years have seen major changes in the use of non-invasive or minimally-invasive techniques, e.g wider use of CT and MR angiography, and increasing use of percutaneous interventions for carotid, lower limb and reno-vascular disease. The ABC of Arterial and Venous Disease (Second Edition) explains the underlying technology and the applications of new minimally-invasive methods, especially CT and MRI, and provides an up-dated, evidence-based guide to the modern day management of patients with common, life-threatening diseases involving different parts of the circulation. This authoritative, full-colour, illustrated ABC is an ideal reference for the primary care, non-specialist practitioner to base effective management and prevention programmes.
Description: What Every Pathologist Needs to Know About Technical Immunohistochemistry.
Available with Prescott, Harley, and Klein's Microbiology, Seventh Edition, are more than 150 animations to harness the visual impact of microbiology processes in motion.
Description: THE CLINICAL USE OF BLOOD HANDBOOK provides a handy guide to the appropriate use of blood and blood products for prescribers of blood at all levels of the healthcare system. It is designed to provide a quick reference to transfusion, particularly when an urgent clinical decision is required. It summarizes key information from a more extensive module of learning material: The clinical Use of Blood Manual. The handbook introduces the principles of the appropriate use of blood and blood products and outlines the characteristics and indications for use of intravenous replacement fluids, whole blood, blood components and plasma derivatives. It provides a detailed guide to clinical transfusion procedures and the recognition and management of transfusion reactions. Comprehensive guidance is given on transfusion and alternatives to transfusion in the areas of general medicine, obstetrics, paediatrics and neonatology, surgery and anaesthesia, trauma and acute surgery, and burns. Key points, tables and algorithms are highlighted for easy reference and a comprehensive index is included.
Description: Immunoassays is the first practical volume designed to help any biologist develop an immunoassay of any common format for any suitable analyte. The basic principles are described and the choices of assay types and formats listed. Methods for raising and for characterizing antibodies, for preparing radioactive, enzymatic, fluorescent and other labels, are described. Solid-phase reagents, standards and immunogens are explained, with procedures for their preparation. But most components can be obtained commercially and comprehensive lists of suppliers are given. Approaches to combining the reagents and optimizing the required assay are described, including how to eliminate common interferences, and thorough validation procedures are given. Manual and computer methods for the calculation of concentrations are explained. Since only assays that are within control give valid results, a graded and comprehensive approach to internal and external quality assurance methods is detailed, including how to prepare control samples.
Description: REAL-LIFE CASES FOR THE SURGERY CLERKSHIP You need exposure to high-yield cases to excel in the surgery clerkship and on the shelf exam. Case Files: Surgery presents 56 real-life cases that illustrate essential concepts in surgery. Each case includes a complete discussion, clinical pearls, references, definitions of key terms, and USMLE-style review questions. With this system, you'll learn in the context of real patients, rather then merely memorize facts. 56 high-yield cases, each with USMLE-style questions, help you master core competencies to excel on the clerkship and ace the shelf exam Clinical pearls highlight key concepts Primer teaches you how to approach clinical problems Proven learning system maximizes your shelf exam scores
Description: This revised fifth edition is an excellent pathology review for students preparing for the USMLE Step 1 and course examinations. Written in the popular Board Review Series outline format, this text covers general and basic pathology, major concepts of disease processes, and systemic pathology that surveys the principal disorders of each organ system through concise descriptions and full-color illustrations. USMLE-style questions at the end of each chapter emphasize board-relevant information and allow for self-testing to confirm strengths and uncover areas of weakness. Plus, the comprehensive exam at the end of the book is a great prep tool for the actual exam!
Description: Monoclonal Antibodies: A Practical Approach covers the preparation, testing, derivation, and applications of monoclonal antibodies. New immunological techniques incorporating tried and tested methodologies are described, making the book of interest to established and inexperienced immunologists. Both the standard somatic hybridization technique and recombinant techniques, including the use of phage libraries, for the preparation of rodent and human monoclonal antibodies are described. Protocols for both the small and large scale production are detailed, as well as purification and labelling (with both radioisotopes and non-radioisotopes) methods. The applications of monoclonal antibodies in immunoblotting, enzyme linked immunoassays, immunofluorescence, and FACS analysis are all covered in detail. Finally protocols are given for the use of monoclonal antibodies in rheumatoid arthritis, tissue typing, detecting DNA modified during chemotherapy, and in the clinical analysis of transplantation samples for malignancy. This book will therefore be an invaluable laboratory companion to anyone using monoclonal antibodies in their research.
Description: Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series is written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Alongside volumes exploring specific biomedical themes and related laboratory diagnosis, an overarching Biomedical Science Practice volume gives a grounding in the professional and experimental skills with which any Biomedical Scientist must be equipped.
