Defending the Indefensible: The Global Asbestos Industry and its Fight for Survival 1st Edition

https://upsto.re/3mddeu7

In the early twentieth century, asbestos had a reputation as a lifesaver. In 1960, however, it became known that even relatively brief exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma, a virulent and lethal cancer.

Yet the bulk of the world’s asbestos was mined after 1960. Asbestos usage in many countries continued unabated.

This is the first global history of how the asbestos industry and its allies in government, insurance, and medicine defended the product throughout the twentieth century. It explains how mining and manufacture could continue despite overwhelming medical evidence as to the risks. The argument advanced in this book is that asbestos has proved so enduring because the industry was able to mount a successful defense strategy for the mineral–a strategy that still operates in some parts of the world. This defence involved the shaping of the public debate by censoring, and sometimes corrupting, scientific research, nurturing scientific uncertainty, and using allies in government, insurance, and medicine.

The book also discusses the problems of asbestos in the environment, compensating victims, and the continued use of asbestos in the developing world. Its global focus shows how asbestos can be seen as a model for many occupational diseases–indeed for a whole range of hazards produced by industrial societies. The book is based on a wealth of documentary material gained from legal discovery, supplemented by evidence from the authors’ visits and researches in the US, the UK, Canada, Kazakhstan, Zimbabwe, Australia, Swaziland, and South Africa.

Breath Sounds: From Basic Science to Clinical Practice 1st ed

This book offers up-to-date information on the recording and analysis of respiratory sounds that will assist in clinical routine. The opening sections deliver basic knowledge on aspects such as the physics of sound and sound transmission in the body, a clear understanding of which is key to good clinical practice. Current techniques of breath sound analysis are described, and the diagnostic impact of advances in the processing of lung sound signals is carefully explained. With the aid of audio files that are available online, detailed guidance is then provided on differentiation of normal and abnormal breath sounds and identification of the various sounds, including crackles, wheezes, other lung sounds, cough sounds, and sounds of extrathoracic origin. The book is of high educational value and represents an excellent learning tool at pre- and postgraduate levels. It will also appeal to researchers as it provides comprehensive summaries of knowledge in particular research fields. The editors bring high-level expertise to the subject, including membership of the European Respiratory Society Task Force on the standardization of categories and nomenclature for breath sounds.

Lung Disease Associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis 1st ed

This comprehensive text expounds the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of lung disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disease that primarily affects joints. Recent advances in therapy for RA provide the benefit of achieving a better outcome in patients with arthritis, and a large number of reports on RA are now available. Moreover, the American College of Rheumatology and the European League Against Rheumatism have proposed guidelines and recommendations for management of RA patients. Therefore, clinicians around the world can adequately understand how to manage patients who have joint symptoms in RA. At the same time, however, the management of RA patients who have lung problems has not been disseminated sufficiently, although lung disease is a common complication in approximately 30–40 %  of patients with RA. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of tangible evidence regarding the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of lung disease associated with RA.

Each expert author in this book elucidates the current status of knowledge about lung disease in RA and the management of RA patients with lung diseases.  Thus this valuable collection benefits not only rheumatologists but also respirologists, radiologists, pathologists, general practitioners, and medical staff such as nurses who are involved in the management of RA.
