Clinical Reproductive Medicine and Surgery offers a succinct overview of both the medical and surgical management of reproductive disorders, as well as coverage of associated imaging modalities. The book includes chapters on major reproductive endocrinology and infertility issues such as polycystic ovary syndrome and amenorrhea, management of endometriosis and fibroids (including interventional radiology), imaging modalities such as ultrasonography and sonohysterography, preservation of fertility, and recurrent pregnancy loss. Residents, fellows, and practitioners interested in reproductive endocrinology and infertility will find this focused and practical text invaluable.
Based on the highly acclaimed Sleep: A Comprehensive Handbook, this is a concise, convenient, practical, and affordable handbook on sleep medicine. It consists of forty topic-focused chapters written by a panel of international experts covering a range of topics including insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, parasomnias, circadian sleep disorders, sleep in the elderly, sleep in children, sleep among women, and sleep in the medical, psychiatric, and neurological disorders. It serves as an effective Sleep Medicine board examination review, and every chapter includes sample boards -style questions for test preparation and practice.
Many real and potential hazards will face astronauts* during operations in space. Some of these hazards might be of little medical significance; others might produce serious medical problems. This book is an initial attempt to describe the characteristics and suggest the management of possible medical problems which might arise from hazards of space operations. Attention is not given here to the so-called 'naturally occurring' diseases. Writing is oriented to future interplanetary missions during which, due primarily to the time required to return to earth, the diagnosis and definitive or interim treatment of medical problems will have to be carried out in space. It is therefore assumed that suitable diagnostic and treatment facilities and medically trained personnel will be available on advanced spacecraft, in which large, multidisciplined crews will be living in a comfortable, 'shirt-sleeves' environment. To lay the groundwork of Space Clinical Medicine, a field in which very little has been written and essentially no experience gained to date, it was found necessary to consider clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of possible medical problems in space. Wherever necessary, various hazards of space operations are defined and analysed in order to determine their possible medical effects. The patho- physiologic characteristics of medical problems are discussed, frequently in detail, to provide the rationale for their prevention and treatment.
