Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies: A Clinician’s Guide

This fascinating book, Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies, edited by Dr. Glenn Matfin, MSC (Oxon), MB ChB, FACE, FACP, FRCP, draws its subject matter from nearly 100 noted endocrinologists worldwide. The book advises clinicians and other health professionals on treating acute medical and critically ill patients who experience endocrine and metabolic emergencies, such as dangerously low blood sugar or excessive thyroid hormone levels. As hormone health conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, and thyroid disorders become more commonplace, hospitals are seeing more patients who need emergency assessment and treatment for related complications. “A given patient entering the emergency room or ICU may have a complex constellation of health problems, including endocrine conditions,” said Matfin, a consultant physician in the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS). “Clinicians need practical resources to ensure their patients receive the best possible care, and that is what this book delivers.” Dr. Matfin was previously medical director of the International Diabetes Center and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis. Prior to this, he was a senior physician and director of the Inpatient Hyperglycemia Program at the Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School, in Boston. Edited by an internationally recognized expert in the field, Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies is an invaluable text and reference packed with practical advice for clinicians, practitioners, students, and other health care professionals working with complex inpatients and endocrine abnormalities, and it features new insights on the diagnosis and treatment of acute endocrine emergencies.

Behavioral Neuroendocrinology 1st Edition

Inspired by Carlos Beyer’s 50 years of pioneering research and influence on his students and colleagues, Behavioral Neuroendocrinology builds upon Beyer’s fundamental discoveries and concepts as well as their widespread implications. It presents original research and reviews on mechanisms ― genomic and non-genomic ― of steroid and protein hormone action; the role of steroid metabolism, especially aromatization, protein phosphorylation, and neurotransmitter action in mediating reproductive behavior and sexual differentiation; and brain and spinal cord mechanisms in sexual behavior and analgesia.

This book presents a rich diversity of topics ― lactation, maternal behavior, pheromone action, chronobiology, allodynia, angiogenesis, prostate physiology, sexual motivation, and specific brain systems, including vomeronasal system, cerebellum, preoptic area, hypothalamus, and spinal cord. This book brings together, in one source, an international “family” of researchers whose work has evolved in diverse but related ways from a seminal set of discoveries and concepts in behavioral neuroendocrinology.
