Sepsis 1st Edition

Sepsis

Sepsis or septic shock is a type of condition/infection which represents one of the leading post-surgical or post-traumatic complications. Sepsis is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in intensive care units worldwide. Also, sepsis is the leading cause of death in non-coronary patients, with pulmonary sepsis accounting for most cases as it relates to lung dysfunction. This is a concise, practical softcover volume devoted to covering only the most practical information for physicians. Charts, tables, and other figures are used to illustrate easy-to-follow treatment guidelines for those professionals who regularly treat patients in the ICU.

CBT Made Simple: A Clinician’s Guide to Practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (The New Harbinger Made Simple Series)

In CBT Made Simple, two psychologists and experts in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) offer the ultimate “how-to” manual based on the principles of effective adult learning. Structured around these evidence-based principles, this user-friendly guide will help you learn CBT and deliver it to your clients in the most optimal way.

CBT is a popular and proven-effective treatment for several mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anger problems. However, there are no evidence-based learning techniques to teach it—until now. This simple, pragmatic guide offers everything you need to know about CBT: what it is, how it works, and how to implement it in session.

CBT Made Simple provides a user-friendly, practical approach to learning CBT using up-to-the-minute teaching methods and learning tools—in particular, the “effective adult learning model,” which promotes interactive learning, experiential learning, and self-reflection. Each chapter presents key elements of CBT in clear, accessible language, and includes client dialogues—including explanations of the therapist’s thinking process in relation to various interventions—and clinical examples. Practical exercises are incorporated throughout, enabling you to practice and consolidate your learning. In addition, each chapter mimics the structure of an actual CBT session.

If you are a clinician or student interested in learning more about CBT, this book—a new addition to the New Harbinger Made Simple series that includes ACT Made Simple and DBT Made Simple—has everything you need to hit the ground running. Why not make it a part of your professional library?

Protein Deimination in Human Health and Disease 2nd ed. 2017 Edition

Published in 2014,  Protein Deimination in Human Health and Disease  was the first book on this novel post-translational modification, in which selected positively-charged arginine amino acids are converted to neutral citrulline amino acids by the peptidyl-arginine deiminase (PAD) family of enzymes. This area of research continues to expand rapidly, necessitating the need for this second edition. Chronicling the latest inflammatory, epigenetic, neurodegenerative, and carcinogenic processes,  Protein Deimination in Human Health and Disease, Second Edition, updates the latest advances in deimination research, including new information on PAD enzyme structure and activity, and how PAD knock-out animals are being used to study known and newly-discovered links to various human diseases.

The first edition outlined what was known about citrullinated proteins in normal tissues such as skin and hair, as well as in maladies such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), glaucoma, peripheral nerve injury, neonatal hypoxic brain damage, and breast cancer. This second edition addresses numerous additional disorders such as diabetes, asthma, traumatic brain injury, inflammatory bowel disease, lupus, bone disease, heart failure, fronto-temporal dementia, and prostate and colon cancer. It also provides updates on the deimination research covering the three seminal diseases first linked to this process (RA, MS and AD), and details how auto-antibodies against citrullinated proteins contribute to disease. In addition, new hypotheses on the possible pathologic mechanisms of citrullinated myelin basic protein and glial fibrillary acidic protein are also proposed. This second edition also outlines the latest developments in therapeutic strategies, including the use of new PAD antagonists and innovative techniques such as micro-vescicles and stem cells as possible mechanisms to treat these conditions.

Restless Nights: Understanding Snoring and Sleep Apnea 1st Edition

People with severe sleep apnea may struggle for breath all through the night, not breathing for as long as ninety seconds at a time during their sleep. This syndrome, which affects at least four percent of men and two percent of women, can cause daytime fatigue, traffic and work accidents, deteriorating cognitive abilities, and cardiovascular problems. Yet until now there has been no accessible discussion of the history, physiology, and risk factors of sleep apnea. In this book Peretz Lavie, an expert in sleep research, tells the complete story of sleep apnea for the first time.
The book provides:

• an explanation of the symptoms of sleep apnea, including the most important one, snoring;

• an up-to-date description of the risk factors;

• a clear explanation why sleep apnea causes cardiovascular problems;

• a discussion of children’s breathing disorders in sleep;

• advice on how to get a consultation and diagnosis;

• evaluations of the treatments currently available;

• practical recommendations on how to live with the syndrome;

• interviews with the key figures in sleep apnea research;

• and more.

B Cell Receptor Signaling (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) 1st ed. 2016 Edition

This volume details our current understanding of the architecture and signaling capabilities of the B cell antigen receptor (BCR) in health and disease. The first chapters review new insights into the assembly of BCR components and their organization on the cell surface. Subsequent contributions focus on the molecular interactions that connect the BCR with major intracellular signaling pathways such as Ca2+ mobilization, membrane phospholipid metabolism, nuclear translocation of NF-kB or the activation of Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase and MAP kinases. These elements orchestrate cytoplasmic and nuclear responses as well as cytoskeleton dynamics for antigen internalization. Furthermore, a key mechanism of how B cells remember their cognate antigen is discussed in detail. Altogether, the discoveries presented provide a better understanding of B cell biology and help to explain some B cell-mediated pathogenicities, like autoimmune phenomena or the formation of B cell tumors, while also paving the way for eventually combating these diseases.
