Hutchison's Clinical Methods E-Book

An Integrated Approach to Clinical Practice

Author: Michael Glynn,William M Drake

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences

ISBN: 0702067415

Category: Medical

Page: 544

View: 8826

Hutchison’s Clinical Methods, first published more than a century ago, is the classic textbook on clinical skills. It provides an outstanding source of learning and reference for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors. It seeks to teach an integrated approach to clinical practice, so that new methods and investigations are grafted onto established patterns of clinical practice, rather than added on as something extra. The text is organised so that both system-related and problem-oriented chapters are included. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of the doctor-patient relationship, the essential skills needed for clinical examination, and for planning the appropriate choice of investigations in diagnosis and management. Hutchison’s Clinical Methods is an invaluable resource for all those learning and training in medicine and is an essential adjunct to a standard textbook of medicine, surgery or other specialty. The book provides a comprehensive account of the traditional methods of patient history-taking and examination but is updated with a full account of the role of modern investigative techniques. This is a book for students of all ages and all degrees of experience. This established textbook of clinical methods has been thoroughly reviewed by an international group of students and trainee doctors to ensure the text concentrates on the basic principles of history and examination in all the various clinical settings which medical students need to master. The global perspective of the book has been enhanced with a new International Advisory Board recruited from South Asia and the Middle East.

Diese vollständig überarbeitete Neuauflage weist all die innovativen konzeptionell-didaktischen und herausragenden gestalterischen Eigenschaften auf, die die früheren Auflagen zu Bestsellern gemacht haben - die außerordentliche klare und präzise Art der Darstellung, die Aktualität, das elegante, lockere Layout -, und greift in gewohnt verständlicher Form auch die jüngsten Fortschritte auf dem Gebiet der Biochemie auf. Die jahrelange Erfahrung der Autoren in der Lehre ist im gesamten Buch spürbar. Das Werk veranschaulicht den "Kern" der Biochemie - die Schlüsselkonzepte und Grundprinzipien -, schlägt Brücken zwischen verschiedenen Befunden und Untersuchungsansätzen und offenbart damit letztlich sowohl die molekulare Logik des Lebendigen als auch die Bedeutung der Biochemie für die Medizin. Die Studierenden werden in der 6. Auflage vor allem folgende Neuerungen und Verbesserungen zu schätzen wissen: stärkere Betonung der Biologie -- das neu konzipierte Kapitel über Hämoglobin führt jenes einfache, zentrale Strukturbeispiel wieder ein, das als experimentelles Modell schon ein Klassiker ist, aber heute erneut in den Blickpunkt der Forschung gelangt -- physiologische Aspekte werden deutlicher hervorgehoben, insbesondere im Hinblick auf die alltäglichen Bedingungen der Stoffwechselregulation (etwa: körperliche Aktivität vs. Ruhe, Sättigung vs. Hunger); neue Grafiken zur metabolischen Integration verknüpfen über verschiedene Kapitel hinweg Stoffwechselwege miteinander, die bei bestimmten Aktivitäten, etwa beim schnellen Laufen, zeitgleich aktiv sind leichterer Zugang -- ausgewogenere Präsentation verschiedener Typen der Darstellung molekularer Strukturen (Kalotten, Bänder etc.) -- die gegenüber der Vorauflage veränderte Integration evolutionärer Aspekte erleichtert das Lernen und Lehren des Stoffs (das alte Kapitel 2 wurde eliminiert und die umfassende Behandlung der Evolution auf Kapitel 6 verschoben, wenn die Studierenden besser darauf vorbereitet sind) -- selektiv umorganisierte Inhalte helfen dem Lernenden zu einem besseren Verständnis; so ist das Kapitel 14 zur Signaltransduktion nun dem Kapitel über Membranen nachgeordnet, und das Kapitel zur Integration des Stoffwechsels beschließt die Darstellung der metabolischen Prozesse, statt in den molekularbiologischen Teil eingegliedert zu werden aktualisierte Darstellung -- ein gänzlich neues Kapitel zur Wirkstoffentwicklung (Kapitel 35) greift faszinierende jüngere Fallstudien auf, an denen die Studierenden die Schlüsselrolle der Biochemie für die Entwicklung neuer Medikamente nachvollziehen können -- die durchgehende Überarbeitung aller Kapitel bringt die Studierenden an die vorderste Front moderner biochemischer Forschung ________________ Um Biochemie zu lernen, bietet seit jeher der "Stryer" den einfachsten und klarsten Weg an. Die jetzt vorliegende 6. Auflage ist durchgängig überarbeitet und auf den neuesten Stand gebracht. Sie enthält nicht nur ein völlig neues Kapitel zum Thema "Wirkstoffentwicklung", sondern trägt auch durch zahlreiche weitere Veränderungen aktuellen wissenschaftlichen und diaktischen Überlegungen Rechnung. So bleibt dieses Lehrbuch das Standardwerk vor allem für Biologen und Mediziner. Das klassische Proteinforschungsbeispiel Hämoglobin nimmt wieder eine angemessene Stellung ein, in den Stoffwechselkapiteln sind die physiologischen Verhältnisse sowie die Regulation und Vernetzung der Stoffwechselprozesse noch stärker berücksichtigt, die Behandlung der Signaltransduktion schließt sich nun direkt den Membrankapiteln an, die Evolutionsaspekte sind durchgängig integriert. Sämtliche schematischen Abbildungen sind in punkto Anschaulichkeit und Verständlichkeit optimiert worden. Teil I führt in bewährter Weise in die Sprache der Biochemie und die Struktur biologischer Moleküle ein. Die folgenden drei Teile widmen sich den drei in der Evolution entscheidenden Herausforderungen: der Umwandlung verschiedener Energieformen ineinander, der

ISBN: 070204850X

Category: Medical

Page: 652

This new book, from the editor of the highly successful Pharmaceutical Analysis, sets out to define the area of pharmaceutical chemistry as distinct from medicinal chemistry. It focuses less on prototypes of drugs that perhaps never came to market and more on the drugs currently in use. The emphasis in the book is on the physicochemical properties of drug molecules and, in so far as they are known, the way that these properties govern the interaction of the drug with its target. Important physicochemical properties include pKa and partition coefficient and the properties of the structural elements within the drug which provide interactions with the target via a range of intermolecular forces. The last fifteen years has seen a great advance in the knowledge of protein structures and a strong emphasis is given to the interaction of drugs with proteins which shape the majority of drug mechanisms. Features: Focus on intramolecular actions Mechanisms of action richly illustrated Self-assessment included Comprehensive chapters on vitamins and biotechnological products This new book, from the editor of the highly successful Pharmaceutical Analysis, sets out to define the area of pharmaceutical chemistry as distinct from medicinal chemistry.
