Die Autoren haben beabsichtigt, diejenigen Gebiete der medizinischen Mikrobiologie kurz, exakt und in ihrem gegenwärtigen Stand darzustellen, die für die Infektionskrankheiten und ihre Chemotherapie von besonderer Bedeutung sind. Das Buch wendet sich in erster Linie an Medizinstudenten, außerdem an alle Ärzte in Krankenhaus und Praxis. Die Notwendigkeit für ein klares Verständnis der mlkrobiologischen Grundtatsachen ist in den letzten Jahren stärker geworden, da in Biochemie, Virologie und Chemotherapie so wie auf weiteren, die Medizin beeinflussenden Gebieten bedeutende Entwicklungen statt gefunden haben. Ein wesendicher Teil dieses Lehrbuches ist deswegen der Darstellung der Grundlagen gewidmet, wodurch sich das Buch auch für die Einführung des Studenten in den mikrobiologischen Kurs als brauchbar erweisen wird. Für die neue Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über Virus und Krebs neu geschrieben, und das Kapitel über antimikrobielle Chemotherapie wurde von Grund auf neu bearbeitet. Die Autoren freuen sich, bei dem Erscheinen der 7. amerikanischen Ausgabe von einer spanischen, deutschen, italienischen und griechischen Ausgabe, sowie von der Vorbereitung für eine serbokroatische Übersetzung berichten zu können. Die Autoren möchten nochmals allen danken, die ihnen bei der Bearbeitung dieser Auf lage behilflich waren, und die es ihnen durch ihre Kommentare und ihre Kritik ermöglicht haben, die in 2jährigen Abständen erscheinenden Revisionen dieses Buches auf dem neu esten Stand zu halten.

From the biological basis of disease to system dysfunction and failure, this one-stop resource presents comprehensive coverage of the fundamental knowledge necessary for surgical practice. Designed to be applicable to any surgical specialty, it provides general coverage of how tissues respond to surgical treatment, problems associated with specific types of surgical patients, and common challenges related to practice in any specialty. Clinicians will also find specialty-specific coverage of applied physiology and embryology. This practical book is perfect for use in preparation for the boards or recertification and ideal for daily practice. Delivers the basic knowledge every surgeon needs to properly understand how tissues respond to surgical treatment and the potential problems that can occur, covering molecular structures and interactions, biochemistry, blood flow, immunology, anatomy and physiology, and more. Discusses practical issues related to ICU management and critical care, including nutrition, transfusion therapy, electrolytes, infections, oncology, organ or system insufficiency and support, monitoring, legal/ethical issues, and more. Details special considerations and offers practical advice for dealing with pregnant, elderly, pediatric, morbidly obese, diabetic, and immunologically compromised surgical patients. Provides specialty-specific information, devoting separate chapters to cardiac, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, vascular, neurologic, pulmonary, renal, hepatic, and endocrine applied physiology and embryology.
This text provides students with the basic knowledge of neuroanatomy needed to practise medicine. Each chapter starts with a neurological case history which sets the scene. This is then followed by a chapter outline for quick access to material, and chapter objectives to focus the student on the most important material in that chapter.

The aim of this book is to be a core textbook of anatomy and physiology in childbearing. Written to present childbearing in the context of changes to non-pregnant physiology; therefore, both anatomy and physiology, their changes in pregnancy, and pathophysiology are all described. The book is divided into four sections - preconception, pregnancy, labour and puerperium - and it places childbearing in a total biological context so that concepts are drawn from disciplines such as evolution, ecology, biochemistry and cell biology. At all times, the text is related to practice and care giving. Written by a teacher/practitioner of midwifery with many years' experience of teaching this subject. Emphasises the links between knowledge and practice Text is well-designed and easy to read. Incorporates recent medical practice in caring for women and babies with problems. Places childbearing in a biological context to allow depth without denigrating social sciences' contribution to care. Fully updated throughout New material on genetics incorporated into the chapter on the cell. Highly illustrated throughout New 8pp colour plate section Further Reading fully updated and now with short annotations

Die Genetik ist eine der Naturwissenschaften, deren Wissen am schnellsten wächst und deren Erkenntnisse ständig in Bewegung und in der Diskussion sind. "Genetik für Dummies" erklärt, was überhaupt hinter diesem spannenden Thema steckt. Die Autorin Tara Rodden Robinson erklärt die Grundlagen der Vererbungslehre wie die Mendelschen Regeln, wie Zellen aufgebaut sind und sie sich teilen. Sie zeigt, wie die DNA aufgebaut ist, wie sie kopiert und richtig in Proteine übersetzt wird. Außerdem geht sie auf die Bedeutung der Genetik in der Humanmedizin ein, wie Genmutationen und Erbkrankheiten entstehen. Sie erläutert, was beim Klonen passiert und was sich überhaupt hinter dem Begriff Gentechnik verbirgt. Auch die heißen Themen wie Stammzellentherapie und der Einsatz der Genetik in der Rechtsmedizin werden behandelt.
