Clinical Research in Communication Disorders Fourth Edition

This thoroughly updated fourth edition of Clinical Research in Communication Disorders: Principles and Strategies remains an instrumental resource for courses on research methods and design in communication disorders.

The book is separated into three key sections: science and the scientific methods, clinical research designs, and doing, reporting, and evaluating research. Together, these sections provide thorough coverage of both the single-subject and group design strategies along with issues of measurement; philosophy of science; ethics of research; and planning, conducting, and reporting research.

Rare Disorders that Cause Dysphagia: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists

Rare Disorders that Cause Dysphagia: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists

Rare Disorders that Cause Dysphagia

Rare Disorders that Cause Dysphagia: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists is a resource manual to help medical speech-language pathologists identify the rare disorders that cause dysphagia and offer practical, therapeutic approaches to treatment. Most medical speech-language pathologists are acquainted with common etiologies of dysphagia, such as strokes, head injury, brain tumors, etc. However, there are less common disorders and syndromes that contribute to dysphagia that are not included in most textbooks and reference guides. Consequently, many clinicians who specialize in swallowing disorders are unaware of the impact that most uncommon diseases can have on swallowing.

Clearly organized, each chapter is divided into six sections: Definition, History, Etiology, Epidemiology, Clinical Manifestations of Dysphagia, and Management of Dysphagia. Each chapter begins with a list of key terms that are bolded throughout the text and included in a glossary.

Handbook of Foodborne Diseases 1st Edition

Handbook of Foodborne Diseases 1st Edition

Clearly linked to consumption of foods, beverages, and drinking water that contain pathogenic microbes, toxins, or other toxic agents, foodborne diseases have undergone a remarkable change of fortune in recent decades, from once rare and insignificant malaises to headline-grabbing and deadly outbreaks. Unquestionably, several factors have combined to make this happen. These include a prevailing demand for the convenience of ready-to-eat or heat-and-eat manufactured food products that allow ready entry and survival of some robust, temperature-insensitive microorganisms; a drastic reduction in the costs of air, sea, and road transportation that has taken some pathogenic microorganisms to where they were absent previously; an expanding world population that has stretched the boundary of human activity; and an ageing population whose weakened immune functions provide a fertile ground for opportunistic pathogens to invade and thrive.

Given the diversity of causative agents (ranging from viruses, bacteria, yeasts, filamentous fungi, protozoa, helminthes, toxins, to toxic agents), and the ingenuity of pathogenic microbes to evolve through genetic reassortment, horizontal gene transfer, and/or random genetic mutation, it has become an enormous challenge to understand how foodborne agents are able to evade host immune defenses and induce diseases, and also to develop and apply innovative approaches for improved diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of foodborne diseases.

Type 2 Diabetes: Cardiovascular and Related Complications and Evidence-Based Complementary Treatments

Type 2 Diabetes: Cardiovascular and Related Complications and Evidence-Based Complementary Treatments

Type 2 Diabetes: Cardiovascular and Related Complications and Evidence-Based Complementary Treatments

Approximately 29 million Americans are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes annually. Of that number, only about 36 percent (10.44 million diabetes sufferers) achieve satisfactory medical outcomes and would need additional help―rarely available―to reliably control their glucose levels. Contrary to popular belief, although anti-diabetic medications can lower sugar levels, nevertheless they have a poor performance track record because inflammation in the blood vessels persists.

FOR MORE BOOKS VISIT EDOWNLOADS.ME

This book details recent scientific findings that cardiovascular, kidney, vision, peripheral nervous system, and other body damage caused by chronic high levels of blood sugar (hyperglycemia) in Type 2 diabetes is actually due to excessive generation of unopposed free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS). These, in turn, cause chronic systemic inflammation and dysfunction of the endothelial lining of the arterial blood vessels, jeopardizing the formation of the protective molecule nitric oxide (NO), thus severely impairing the blood supply to every organ and tissue in the body. This book also catalogues the evidence that chronic hyperglycemia causes profound and often irreversible damage―even long before Type 2 diabetes has been diagnosed. In addition, because conventional prescription treatments are, unfortunately, often inadequate, the book details evidence-based complementary means of blood sugar control.

The Brain from Inside Out

The Brain from Inside Out

The Brain from Inside Out

Is there a right way to study how the brain works? Following the empiricist’s tradition, the most common approach involves the study of neural reactions to stimuli presented by an experimenter.

This ‘outside-in’ method fueled a generation of brain research and now must confront hidden assumptions about causation and concepts that may not hold neatly for systems that act and react.

Encyclopedia of Clinical Neuropsychology 2nd ed

Encyclopedia of Clinical Neuropsychology 2nd ed

Encyclopedia of Clinical Neuropsychology 2nd ed

Clinical neuropsychology is a rapidly evolving specialty whose practitioners serve patients with traumatic brain injury, stroke and other vascular impairments, brain tumors, epilepsy and nonepileptic seizure disorders, developmental disabilities, progressive neurological disorders, HIV- and AIDS-related disorders, and dementia.  Services include evaluation, treatment, and case consultation in child, adult, and the expanding geriatric population in medical and community settings. The clinical goal always is to restore and maximize cognitive and psychological functioning in an injured or compromised brain.

Most neuropsychology reference books focus primarily on assessment and diagnosis, and to date none has been encyclopedic in format. Clinicians, patients, and family members recognize that evaluation and diagnosis is only a starting point for the treatment and recovery process. During the past decade there has been a proliferation of programs, both hospital- and clinic-based, that provide rehabilitation, treatment, and treatment planning services. This encyclopedia will serve as a unified, comprehensive reference for professionals involved in the diagnosis, evaluation, and rehabilitation of adult patients and children with neuropsychological disorders.
