An Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry
This illustrated text provides undergraduate and postgraduate students with an accessible introduction to medicinal chemistry. It covers basic principles and background, and then describes the general tactics and strategies employed in developing an effective drug. Through the use of numerous examples, it highlights both the difficulties faced by the medicinal chemist and the great power and potential of rational drug design. This book is suitable for undergraduates on courses in chemistry (2nd and 3rd year) and medicinal chemistry (1st and 2nd year), and postgraduate chemists beginning work in pharmaceutical research.
The focus on this book is on helping practitioners recognize and respond appropriately to psychosexual anxiety and distress. Recent research suggests that the sexual concerns of patients still go unaddressed and that communication with patients about sexual issues is generally inadequate. Psychosexual anxiety and distress occur as the consequence of changes or threats to the sexual aspects of an individual?s self-confidence. Such changes may occur as the consequence of illness, disability, ageing, altered sexual function, relationship difficulties, loss and other psychosocial events. Sexual distress and anxieties that go unrecognized may lead to sexual and interpersonal problems which in turn create further anxiety or distress. As a consequence, a vicious circle of altered sexual self-concept, psychosexual anxiety and distress, and alterations in sexual response and satisfacction, can become quickly established. This book gives a thorough grounding in the principles of the care of patients with psychosexual problem. Psychosexual anxiety and distress ? Professional issues in psychosexual care ? Psychosexual nursing skills ? Altered sexual interest and response ? Sexual dysfunction ? Reproductive sexual health ? Sexual orientation ? Sexually transmitted infections ? Sexual assult and sexual abuse ? Sexual variations and issues relating to gender identity ? Useful addresses ?

Diabetes and You: A Comprehensive, Holistic Approach
In this well-organized guidebook, physician Ali gives diabetics and their families understandable information about an increasingly common and ultimately debilitating disease. More than 23 million people suffer from diabetes in the U.S. alone. Ali expertly covers the causes, treatment, and early and later symptoms. (The first signs are excessive thirst, urination, and appetite. Later, people can suffer from erectile dysfunction, acne, headaches, and cramps.) Ali also explains the disease’s mind-boggling alphabet-acronym soup: BMI, SMBG, DCCT, NP, DKA. Rather than blaming type 2 diabetics for sufferers’ condition, which is often brought on by obesity, Ali tries to motivate them to exercise and lose weight. He also includes a thorough glossary (whoever heard of Goodpasture’s syndrome?) and several pages with contact information for research groups, diabetes centers and clinics, and other resources. His advice isn’t always earthshaking; learn portion size, keep a food diary, eat more fruits and vegetables, quit smoking. But it may be lifesaving. --Karen Springen

Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function - 8th Edition
Physiology is a text
designed to teach the functions of the human body from
a mechanistic approach, stressing homeostasis and control
systems. The fundamental purpose of this book has remained undeniably
the same: to present the principles and facts of human
physiology in a format that is suitable for undergraduates regardless of
academic background or field of study. Human
Physiology, eighth edition, carries on the tradition of
clarity and accuracy, while refining and updating the content to meet the needs
of today's instructors and students.
Mechanistic approach. Physiology is explained as a dynamic process of clearly defined chains of causal links. This approach prevents students from viewing physiology as a memorizing exercise -- students must understand causal links and processes within the context of homeostasis. This mirrors the experience they will have in the clinical setting.
Chapter Sections. Most text chapters are broken down into sections which contain their own pedagogy: key words, summaries, review questions, thought questions. Gives more pedagogical support to individual topics within chapters. Breaks information into smaller functional "chunks" which are better grasped by students.
A very clear and concise text book with plenty of information without being too difficult to get your head around. Quality colour pictures along with easy to read text make it a very user friendly study assistant.

Bones and Muscles: An Illustrated Anatomy
and Muscles: An Illustrated Anatomy is 187 pages long with 144 full-color
illustrations. It is the first anatomy textbook
available only in ebook format. It can be downloaded
in whole or in part as a PDF file, or ordered as a CD
at a fraction of the cost of a typical medical textbook.
Bones and Muscles focuses on only one aspect of the human body--the origins and insertions of the voluntary muscles. The format is simple and uncluttered, with drawings on the right and text--including actions, origins and insertions of the muscles--on the left. Translations of the names of the bones and muscles from the Latin and Greek are provided.
The author and illustrator, Virginia Cantarella, is a renowned medical illustrator with 20 major medical texts to her credit, including the classic Aesthetic Plastic Surgery by Thomas Rees, M.D.
Here is what Rees has to say about Bones and Muscles:
"The study of anatomy is innately difficult because of the built in "dryness" of the subject. The mental exercise required to memorize the details is a boring task at best. In medical school, I found the study of Gray's Anatomy to be tedious beyond words. The illustrations were not appealing.
"This new work by Virginia Cantarella is a delight to the eye and makes the study of anatomy a pleasure... She has married accuracy of detail with art - a most difficult task. I was lucky enough to have Ms Cantarella's services in illustrating two editions of my texts AESTHETIC PLASTIC SURGERY, of which I was the editor and author. The clarity and appeal of her illustrations of surgical anatomy contributed much to the success of these books which drew compliments from plastic surgeons from all over the World.
"I have found these anatomical plates and their accompanying text to be a delight to the eye and the mind. The anatomy is almost incidental to the art. I believe this work will become the classic by which all future texts on anatomy will be measured. The work is useful for all workers in the field of health care whether a surgeon, nurse, paramedic, rehabilitation specialist, or other health provider."
--Thomas D. Rees, M.D., F.A.C.S.
"Congratulations on a fine book. I'm impressed. I recommend it highly for surgeons, chiropractors and and massage therapists."
-- Dr. Michael Patipa, West Palm Beach, Florida

Dermatopathology The Basics
In this volume, the authors hope to share their passion for the
teaching of dermatopathology with a wide range of students.
The idea for the project was initiated by a group of dermatology
residents trained during the past 20 years. As part of a
dermatopathology curriculum within the Dermatology and Pathology
departments, Drs. Smoller and Hiatt have developed a series
of didactic lectures covering much of the field. Annually, the residents
ask for “hard copies” of the lecture notes and use these
to create binders to be used for studying. At their constant urging,
we decided to share these lectures in the form of a series of
Psychological Aspects of Women's Health Care: The Interface Between Psychiatry and Obstetrics and Gynecology
the decade since the first edition of this work was published, an incredible
array of reproductive technologies and associated issues has emerged. Obstetricians and gynecologists are hard-pressed to deal with
the startling breadth and depth of these issues, which require mastery over a
daunting combination of ever-increasing scientific knowledge, technical skills,
long hours, legal liability, and exposure to clinical situations of
overwhelming emotional intensity.
Psychiatrists have a vital role to play in helping obstetricians and gynecologists cope with a host of problems whose resolutions require not just technical skill, but also knowledge of biology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, ethics, and law. For example, to design and implement strategies to reduce the transmission of HIV, psychiatrists could work with public health workers to incorporate the psychology, sociology, and anthropology of female reproductive behavior. Psychiatrists could likewise improve the diagnosis and treatment of breast and pelvic malignancies by elucidating the factors that deter women from self-examination and regular medical screening and enhance treatment compliance.
Divided into three sections, this clinical and theoretical sourcebook addresses every major area of contemporary concern.
Pregnancy covers topics from the psychology of normal gestation to physical and psychiatric complications during and after pregnancy, including new prenatal diagnostic techniques and the dynamic issues that emerge when abnormalities are detected, and the use of psychotropic drugs and electroconvulsive therapy in pregnant and lactating patients.
Gynecology discusses not only common gynecologic problems but also more controversial issues such as induced abortion and the new reproductive technologies, including the role of the menstrual cycle in exacerbating and precipitating psychologic symptoms, the psychiatric aspects of menopause, the assessment and management of chronic pelvic pain, the psychosocial concomitants of gynecologic malignancies and the emotional demands on the oncology team, and the special implications of HIV/AIDS.
General Issues offers a broad, balanced view of topics rarely found in the literature, such as men's reactions to women's reproductive events, substance abuse and eating disorders, sexual and physical abuse (often part of the histories of patients with personality disorders and posttraumatic stress disorders), ethical and legal issues, and health care for lesbian patients. Of special significance is Dr. Stotland's chapter on how consultation-liaison services are provided to obstetrics and gynecology services.
This practical and scholarly volume is exceptionally useful as a teaching reference for medical and other health care students and residents in psychiatry and obstetrics and gynecology. It also provides a valuable resource for the clinician working to improve the psychological well-being of women patients.
This is the first one-volume anatomy atlas by Netter, who has illustrated eight volumes on various parts of the body for the medical and health professions. These volumes are considered classics and are owned by all medical libraries. This new one-volume atlas is a beautifully illustrated book which would be of value to public libraries because of the coverage. The 36-page index makes for easy access to the illustrations. Reference librarians will cheer to have this handy one-volume book. Recommended highly for public libraries, the book clearly outlines the human body and does a better job than any existing atlas.
