Recomendaciones nutricionales para el tratamiento y prevención de la úlcera por presión
Las úlceras por presión son el resultado de una compleja interacción entre innumerables factores de riesgo intrínsecos y extrínsecos, como carga mecánica excesiva, inmovilidad, incontinencia, y edad avanzada, entre muchos otros. Aunque generalmente la inmovilidad se considera el factor predisponente principal para la inducción del desarrollo de una úlcera por presión, también se asume a menudo que existe una relación de causalidad directa entre la nutrición y el desarrollo de úlcera por presión.

Guía de Orientación Nutricional para Personas Mayores
Todos somos conscientes que en los llamados países occidentales la edad media de la población y la proporción de ancianos están aumentando, y que lo va a seguir haciendo al menos durante el primer tercio del s. XXI. En este sentido, y por la repercusión que va a tener al analizar la relación entre envejecimiento y alimentación, este aumento en la esperanza de vida está dando lugar a un crecimiento aún más rápido de la población mayor de 85 años, que se incrementará hasta en seis veces en nuestro mundo occidental.

Concepts of Genetics 10th Edition


Libros de Medicina en PDF
Concepts of Genetics
It is essential that textbook authors step back and look with fresh eyes as each edition of their work is planned. In doing so, two main questions must be posed: (1) How has the body of information in their field—in this case Genetics grown and shifted since the last edition; and (2) What pedagogic innovations might be devised and incorporated into the text that will unquestionably enhance students’ learning? The preparation of the 10th edition of Concepts of Genetics, a text now well into its third decade of providing support for students studying in this field, has occasioned still another fresh look.

Asperger Syndrome: Natural Steps toward a Better Life
When I started writing this book, I set out to offer a more natural, science-based medical treatment option to the Asperger community. Along the way, things changed. Hearing story after story of Asperger children and adults struggling to fit into what the general population has defined as normal, I began to see that this issue, like all issues, has two sides. Gradually, I recognized Asperger Syndrome as a different way of thinking based on variations in the brain, similar in many aspects to speaking a foreign language.

The Mainstreaming of Complementary and Alternative Medicine

The Mainstreaming of Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a major component of healthcare in most late modern societies. While there is increasing recognition of the need for more research in this area, it is frequently argued that such research should be directed towards establishing ‘evidence’ that will provide ‘answers’ to policy questions. However, complementary medicine is also a topic worthy of study in its own right, a historically contingent social product, and it is this sociological agenda that underpins The Mainstreaming of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

The Whole Story Alternative medicine on trial? – Toby Murcott

The Whole Story Alternative medicine on trial?
I spent eight years as a research biochemist. Throughout that time I lived with Sam, a large, ginger neutered tom cat. He had moved in with no fur on his belly and back legs – apparently as a result of fleas – and a medicine cabinet of powerful and expensive steroids. I decided that if fleas were causing Sam’s baldness then I would deal with them rather than spend my meagre funds on cat steroids. So I bought him a flea collar and dusted him down with flea powder.

Complementary and Alternative Median for Child and Adolescent Care
There are a number of excellent books on the market addressing the role of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in nursing, midwifery and physio-therapy (Rankin-Box 2001, Tiran 2000, Charman, 2000) which review, in general, a range of themes relevant to the discipline. As far as possible I have tried to avoid going over the same ground in this book, however, there will be inevitably some overlap. In addition I have assumed that the reader has a prior level of knowledge covering paediatric, professional and legal issues in nursing.

Alternative Medicine – Christine A. Larson
Alternative medicine is a term that causes confusion for most people.
What is alternative medicine? How does it compare with conventional medicine? What is integrative medicine? Is integrative medicine the same as alternative medicine? How does alternative medicine compare with holistic health? What do all of these practices have in common, and what are their differences? Do they work? Are they safe?
The reason most consumers choose to explore alternative approaches to healing is a very simple one: what they’re currently doing isn’t working.

Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Alternative Medicine
According to a random survey conducted in 1997, 42% of Americans sought out and used one or more types of medical interventions that were not taught in medical schools and were not generally available in U.S. hospitals. This represented an eight percentage point increase over the 1990 results of the same survey. While the vast majority (96%) of these people were also seeking conventional treatment for their health problems, less than 40% of these people told their conventional doctors what they were doing. Clearly, something’s going on with alternative medicine.

Researching Complementary and Alternative Medicine
The rise of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) – a whole array of practices, products and approaches to health and illness1 – can certainly no longer be characterised as cultural fad or fashion. Changes in the use of titles (from ‘unscientific’ and ‘marginal’ to ‘complementary’ and ‘integrative’)
reflect a more substantive relocation and transformation of many of these medicines from the fringe to the mainstream of both community and professional health-care discourse and practice (Tovey et al. 2004).
