Endocrine Emergencies Book Review:

Medical emergencies due to disorders of the endocrine system represent a unique category of clinical care. Hypotension, fever, palpitations, confusion, and electrolyte abnormalities are all signs of disparate endocrine emergencies that require immediate diagnoses and treatment. Recognition of endocrine emergencies will frequently lead to rapid improvement and stabilization of the patient. Now in a revised and expanded second edition including the latest clinical guidelines and protocols, Endocrine Emergencies serves as a handy single reference for any endocrinologist, internist, hospitalist, and emergency medicine physician to rapidly identify and initiate treatment. Topics covered include acute adrenal insufficiency, diabetic ketoacidosis, thyroid storm, hyponatremia, and myxedema coma, among many others. Each chapter opens with a precis that provides, in a single page, a presentation of symptoms, workup, and therapy. This serves as a rapid, “off the shelf” cue to immediately begin a differential diagnoses and therapy plan. The remainder of each chapter is an in-depth review of the pathophysiology, diagnoses, and management of the disease process. Book chapters are written by experts in the field and reflect the consensus and standard of care for specific endocrine emergencies. Updated with the latest clinical evidence and treatment options, Endocrine Emergencies remains a valuable resource for practitioners in endocrinology and internal medicine, as well as emergency room physicians, hospital support staff, fellows and residents.

Handbook of Equine Emergencies E Book Book Review:

There are approximately 5,780 vets in the UK seeing horses regularly and 800 final year students per year studying equine. Equine emergencies (e.g. Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Ophthalmic or Foal) are regular occurrences: most vets are not called out regularly enough to become specialists, but do need to know enough to treat these emergencies. The idea of this book is to be a quick practical reference guide that a vet could keep handy in such emergencies. Currently there are no other easy to use pocketbooks on this subject in the market. The existing Equine Emergencies texts are either aimed at horse owners or are too detailed to be useful in this context, very large and include uncommon equine emergencies and advanced techniques that are irrelevant to the mixed practitioner. - Suitable for all equine practitioners - Concise and practical layout and content - Accessible online downloads

Endocrine Emergencies Endocrinology in Intensive Care and Preoperative Care Book Review:

Descriptions of endocrinology will change in the years to come. Endocrinology is not only concerned about the diseases of the known endocrine organs. We know now organs that were not previously recognized as endocrine organs such as the heart and skin are in fact endocrine organs. Endocrinology is a science of knowledge transfer in the human body. Endocrine diseases like diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypertension and thyroid disorders are so common in the population. Each exceeds 10% of the total population. Endocrinologic evaluation of whole diseases of emergency situations and critical care situations are important, as well as known endocrine organ diseases in these units. Also, preoperative, perioperative, postoperative evaluation and management of endocrine diseases are very important. This book is the written first edition of a work that may be beneficial for endocrinology and internal medicine residents, surgeons, and medical students. The book purpose is to cover the up-to-date practical endocrine emergencies, perioperative evaluation and endocrine aspects of critical care. If you send us your comments, feedback and chapter headline suggestions, we can make changes in the new edition of this book according to suggestions.
