A Hodder Arnold Publication | ISBN: 0340810130 | 2021-12-29 | PDF | 262 pages | 8.79 Mb

The first edition of Leg Ulcers by David Negus was published in 1991. Since then, developments in the management of venous disorders and, in particular, of venous ulceration, have continued apace. Prominent among these has been the development of duplex ultrasound scanning, which now enables the diagnosis and treatment of venous ulceration to be undertaken with a sound knowledge of the underlying anatomy. Treatment options now include PIN stripping of the long saphenous vein, endoscopic perforating vein interruption and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. All of these developments, and more, are covered in this comprehensive guide to the management of this unpleasant and often socially unacceptable disorder. The book covers a wide diversity of subjects with authority and detail, including the relationship between venous ulcers and primary venous insufficiency as well as post-thrombotic syndrome, risk factors for deep vein thrombosis, recent advances in wound healing and microcirculatory changes in venous ulceration. Written by a team of internationally recognised experts, this third edition of Leg Ulcers contains comprehensive reviews of the relevant literature and provides advice for those faced with difficult diagnostic and therapeutic problems, whatever their clinical setting.

Roger Webber - Communicable Disease Epidemiology and Control: A Global Perspective
CABI | ISBN: 0851999026 | 2022-03-17 | PDF | 328 pages | 2.36 Mb

Communicable diseases are community problems, which can devastate whole populations, in both developing and developed countries. Epidemiology is the science of communities that looks at many individuals to try and discover common features in them. From this analysis the cause and characteristcics of a disease can be worked out. The first chapters of this book look at communicable disease theory and formulating common principles in both epidemiology and control. Since the first edition a new section on climate change due to global warming and its effect on disease as been added. Later chapters cover various criteria of communicable diseases including more recent outbreaks that have emerged since the first edition and others which many become important in the future. This book will prove an essential tool for doctors, epidemiologists and those working in the control of communicable disease, as well as providing a clear introduction for medical students, public health specialists and those involved in disease control.

Robert J. Latino - Patient Safety: The PROACT Root Cause Analysis Approach
CRC Press | ISBN: 1420087274 | 2021-10-14 | PDF | 192 pages | 4.33 Mb

Written by a reliability expert, this book provides a perspective on patient care from outside the healthcare industry and culture. Challenging perceptions about Root Cause Analysis (RCA), it provides a new approach that includes tools such as Basic Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Opportunity Analysis (OA) which help quantify and prioritize events which deserve the attention of true RCA. The authors begin by defining the events that require RCA to maximize the effect on the patient. They address not only the proactive methodologies but also the organizational paradigms that must change in order to support and sustain such activities in the interest of patient safety.
