LEARN THE PRINCIPLES OF CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES IN JUST THIRTY DAYS Infectious Diseases: A Clinical Short COURSE is a concise overview of this important field designed to help the busy physician, medical student, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant to understand, diagnose, and treat common infectious diseases. This unique self-instruction book is organized by system/region as opposed to pathogens—simulating how common pathogens and disorders would be encountered in rounds or in practice. By indicating the number of days that should be allotted to the study of each chapter, the author has created a schedule for completion of each lesson. A wide array of tables that summarize the methods of clinical assessment, anti-infective agent doses, and drug toxicities--facts that do not require memorization, but do need to be referred to when caring for patients--facilitate this condensed learning schedule. There is no better resource for learning to associate pathogens with the corresponding impact on patients than Infectious Diseases. FEATURES Key Points summarize the most important facts when managing each infection and facilitate board review Guiding Questions begin each chapter An estimate of the potential severity of each disease gives you a sense of how quickly you should initiate treatment Numerous case examples highlight real-world clinical application of the content Dozens of color plates depict major pathogens All chapters have been updated to reflect the most current treatment and diagnostic guidelines from the Infectious Diseases Society of America NEW! Antibiograms for each major antibiotic class provide a visual depiction of the spectrum of each individual antibiotic; a table listing the most commonly used outpatient antibiotics and their dosing; and much more

The Grace And The Severity Of The Ideal

In this highly original book, Victor Kestenbaum calls into question the oft-repeated assumption that John Dewey's pragmatism has no place for the transcendent. Kestenbaum demonstrates that, far from ignoring the transcendent ideal, Dewey's works—on education, ethics, art, and religion—are in fact shaped by the tension between the natural and the transcendent. Kestenbaum argues that to Dewey, the pragmatic struggle for ideal meaning occurs at the frontier of the visible and the invisible, the tangible and the intangible. Penetrating analyses of Dewey's early and later writings, as well as comparisons with the works of Hans-Georg Gadamer, Michael Oakeshott, and Wallace Stevens, shed new light on why Dewey regarded the human being's relationship to the ideal as "the most far-reaching question" of philosophy. For Dewey, the pragmatic struggle for the good life required a willingness "to surrender the actual experienced good for a possible ideal good." Dewey's pragmatism helps us to understand the place of the transcendent ideal in a world of action and practice.

The standard work for ophthalmology in veterinary practise – now completely revised and extended. In its modern layout, the new edition continues a tried and tested concept. The present day developments in ophthalmological diagnostics and therapy are supplemented comprehensively throughout the book. In ophthalmology, the paramount maxim is "Learning by doing". This book provides a concrete guide to diagnostics and therapy of all important eye diseases in small animals especially for those general veterinary practitioners without any specific experience in ophthalmology and to students. It enables the determination of a diagnosis even without specialised instruments, while at the same time it gives answers to the important questions: When should an eye patient be referred to a specialist? Which preparations are necessary for doing this? Specific veterinary features in pet animals, horses, birds and farm animals are compared. A special chapter dedicated to ophthalmological emergencies enables quick and assured actions to be undertaken in emergency situations. The structure of the book follows the steps of a clinical examination making it particularly user–friendly. First–class new colour photographs and instructive drawings illustrate symptoms, diagnosis and treatment methods.
