This unique book is the first of its kind to specifically explore the science, medicine, challenges and successful experiences of assisting those who must perform and thrive in hot conditions, with an eye toward maximizing both performance and safety. Beginning with both human and comparative physiology as it relates to coping with the heat, key concepts are subsequently elaborated, including heat acclimatization, work-to-rest ratios, hydration, sleep, the effects of altitude, and the use of drugs and supplements. The sections that follow discuss heat-related considerations in individual and team sports and other populations, monitoring techniques, and medical and legal issues.
Athletes, warfighters and laborers are often forced to perform intense physical activity in the heat as a part of their jobs or lifestyle. The process of properly preparing for this challenge is multifaceted and often not fully understood or utilized. Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat is an excellent resource for team physicians, high-level coaches, serious athletes, athletic trainers, exercise scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, industrial hygienists, military commanders, or anyone involved in the process of maximizing performance and safety during exercise in the heat for the athlete, warfighter, or laborer.

This handbook provides key information on the clinical use of nutraceuticals, an increasingly common practice grounded in an understanding of the pharmacological activities of natural compounds and clinical evidence of efficacy and safety. Each chapter examines the effects of nutraceuticals in different therapeutic contexts, including nutraceuticals active on the digestive system, heart, lipid and glucose metabolism, and immune system. The authors also address relevant concerns such as relative and absolute contraindications, range of tested doses (efficacious and safe), possible side effects and pharmacological interactions, and the scientific level of clinical evidence for each product.
Management of benign anorectal disorders is challenging for the treating surgeons as the patients are highly distressed, the symptoms are always alarming, and surgical intervention may be associated with lifelong disabilities such as loss of sphincter control. Written by highly experienced colorectal surgeons, this book provides detailed notes on optimal management of these disorders including pre- and post-operative management. Chapters cover the entire range of benign disorders such as hemorrhoids, fissure, fistula-in-ano, anorectal injuries, anal incontinence, rectal prolapse, pelvic floor disorders, benign tumors and ulcers, and strictures. Chapters on surgical anatomy and physiology equip the surgeons with the information necessary to understand the complex anatomy and functioning of this region which makes surgery all the more difficult.
Benign Anorectal Disorders is an essential reading for colorectal surgeons, general surgeons, fellows-in-training and the post-graduate students.

Written by an expert in the field, this book is a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the evaluation and management of lacrimal drainage disorders. Lacrimal disorders are one of the most common conditions encountered not only by oculoplastic surgeons and general ophthalmologists, but also by otorhinolaryngologists in their daily practice. Consisting of 77 chapters, it addresses the basic anatomy and underlying pathology, patient evaluation, and the surgical procedures currently performed in managing various lacrimal disorders. Surgical modalities including the endoscopic approaches are thoroughly and succinctly captured in pictures with detailed legends to aid understanding and offer a visual treat. Since familiarity with a surgical technique is incomplete without the knowledge of risk factors and red flags, the book discusses in detail how to deal with surgical complications and failure.
n to the author’s previous work “Principles and Practice of Lacrimal Surgery”.
Mohammad Javed Ali completed his basic medical education and ophthalmology training at NTR University of Health Sciences, Hyderabad. He obtained his fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners (FRCGP), UK in 2003 and fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (FRCS) in 2008. He also completed his fellowship in Orbital Surgery in 2008, followed by a second fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery, Ocular Oncology and Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery in 2010. He later trained in rhinology with world leader Peter-John Wormald from Australia. Javed is one of the rare recipients of The Experienced Researcher – Senior Alexander Von Humboldt Fellowship Award, a pinnacle award in the research world. He is also a recipient of the Dr P Siva Reddy Gold Medal in Ophthalmology, Dr Pathak Medal in Ophthalmology, Mazher Foundation Award for outstanding academic performance, Vengal Rao Medal, Raghavachary medal, Ranga Reddy Endowment award, Honavar award and Sunayna Medal. He has described 2 new diseases of the lacrimal system along with their classifications and clinicopathologic profiles. He was honored with the “Healthcare Leadership Award 2012’ for his research and innovations in dacryology and also received the 2015 ASOPRS Merrill Reeh Award for his groundbreaking work on the etiopathogenesis of punctal stenosis. His textbook “Principles and Practice of Lacrimal Surgery” is considered to be the most comprehensive treatise on the subject. He is a section editor for 7 journals and reviewer for over 30 major journals. His areas of research include the molecular pathogenesis of NLDO, stem cells and minimally invasive lacrimal surgeries.

This book presents an account of innovative methods and, for most of them, gives direct and practical insights into how practitioners can benefit from their use in their everyday practice. It also explains how to interpret the data measured, and the underlying neuromechanical and biomechanical factors related to sports performance. Written and edited by the same researchers who proposed and validated these methods, this book not only presents innovative methods for an efficient training and testing process (most of which are based on very simple technology and data processing methods), but also discusses the associated background information. Although it is a young scientific discipline, sport biomechanics has taken on an important role in routine sports training, medicine and rehabilitation. It allows both a better understanding of human locomotion and performance and better design of training and injury prevention. In those processes, the testing of athletes is crucial, and the quality and quantity of the variables analysed directly influences the efficiency of physicians’, coaches’, physiotherapists’ and other practitioners’ interventions.
performance, with specific interest into running biomechanics and maximal power movements (sprint, jumps). He teaches locomotion, sports biomechanics, and strength training and assessment methods. He has published over 100 peer-review Journal articles since 2002, and collaborates and plays a consultant role with elite sprinters, rugby and football teams (among other sports) all over the world.
