The Uncertain Art: Thoughts on a Life in Medicine by Sherwin B. Nuland

English | May 20th, 2008 | ASIN: B00199RHES, ISBN: 1400064783 | 199 Pages | EPUB | 0.35 MB

“Life is short, and the Art so long; the occasion fleeting; experience fallacious; and judgment difficult. The physician must not only be prepared to do what is right himself, but also to make the patient, the attendants, and the externals, cooperate.” –attributed to Hippocrates, c. 400 B.C.E.
The award-winning author of How We Die and The Art of Aging, venerated physician Sherwin B. Nuland has now written his most thoughtful and engaging book. The Uncertain Art is a superb collection of essays about the vital mix of expertise, intuition, sound judgment, and pure chance that plays a part in a doctor’s practice and life.
Drawing from history, the recent past, and his own life, Nuland weaves a tapestry of compelling stories in which doctors have had to make decisions in the face of uncertainty. Topics include the primitive (and sometimes illegal) procedures doctors once practiced with good intentions, such as grave robbing and prescribing cocaine as an anesthetic (which resulted in a physician becoming America’s first cocaine addict); the curious “cures” for irregularity touted by people from the ancient Egyptians to the cereal titan John Harvey Kellogg and bodybuilder Charles Atlas; and healers grappling with today’s complex moral and ethical quandaries, from cloning to gene therapy to the adoption of Eastern practices like acupuncture.
Nuland also recounts his most dramatic experiences in a forty-year medical career: the time he was called out of the audience of a Broadway play to help a man having a heart attack (when no other doctor there would respond), and how he formed a profound friendship with an unforgettable–and doomed–heart patient. Behind these inspiring accounts always lie the mysteries of the human body and human nature, the manner in which the ill can will themselves back to health and the odd and essential interactions between a body’s own healing mechanisms and a doctor’s prescriptions.
Riveting and wise, amusing and heartrending, The Uncertain Art is Sherwin Nuland’s best work, gems from a man who has spent his professional life acting in the face of ambiguity and sharing what he has learned.

A clinically oriented handbook providing up–to–date recommendations for mastering the practical aspects of patient management for venous thromboembolism
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is associated with high morbidity and mortality both in and out of the hospital setting, and is one of the commonest reasons for hospital attendances and admissions. Designed as a practical resource, the Handbook of Venous Thromboembolism covers the practical aspects of venous thromboembolism management in short and easily followed algorithms and tables. This important text helps physicians keep up–to–date with the latest recommendations for treating venous thromboembolism in clinic–oriented settings. Experts in fields such as the radiological diagnosis of pulmonary embolism and thrombophilia testing, give a succinct summary of the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of venous thromboembolism and include evidence–based guidelines.
With contributions from a team on internationally recognized experts, Handbook of Venous Thromboembolism is a source of information that specialists in the field can recommend to non–specialists and which the latter will be able to review to assist in their education and management of this wide–spread condition. This vital resource:
• Comprises of a clinically focused handbook, useful as a daily resource for the busy physician
• Offers a handbook written by an international team of specialists offering their experience on the practical aspects of venous thromboembolism management
• Addresses venous thrombosis prevention, a major focus for healthcare providers
• Includes coverage on controversies in the management of venous thromboembolism so clinicians can understand how experts are practicing in real scenarios
Written for hematology trainees, emergency and acute medicine physicians, junior doctors, and primary care physicians, Handbook of Venous Thromboembolism covers the basics for treating patients with venous thromboembolism and offers guidelines from noted experts in the field.

Richard de Courcy-Wheeler, Beverley Adams, Bernie McElhinney, Khaled El-Hayes – MCQs for MRCOG Part 1: A self-assessment guide

Published: 2003-09-26 | ISBN: 0340809272 | PDF | 144 pages | 0.67 MB

This book includes MCQs in the basic sciences that underpin the study of obstetrics and gynaecology, as is examined in Part 1 of the membership examination. Following the syllabus recommended by the RCOG, the questions are arranged in papers of 60 questions, each question having 5 stems with True/False answer options. Full answers with explanatory text will be provided. Where appropriate the answers will be supplemented by key message boxes and footnotes to direct further study – in this way the book can be used as a study guide as well as a tool for revision and self-assessment. A unique feature of the book will be the accompanying CD-ROM. Using this the candidate will be able to select at random questions to make up a practice paper which they can sit under ‘examination conditions’. When the candidate has completed the mock examination the program will calculate their scores and indicate whether this would represent a ‘good pass / pass / borderline pass or fail’. As with the text, full explanations of the answers will be provided.
