Dr. Patrick Roth is an accomplished neurosurgeon with a thriving practice. He reveals eye-opening stories from his 30-year career that demonstrate modern medicine is "not what you think it is." Based on his vast experience, he discusses his current conflicted view of medicine, one filled with awe and a sense that medicine is broken. With a critical eye and an open heart, THE ME IN MEDICINE: REVIVING THE LOST ART OF HEALING discusses today's medical industry issues and what can be done to fix them. The typical office visit allows little time for doctors to listen, for patients to share, and for both to come to enough of an understanding as to the best way forward. One of the most pronounced problems today is our "top down" approach powered by electronic record systems that medicalize symptoms, maximize income at the expense of the patient and dispense recommended treatments that have crushed the art of healing. Having recognized the problem, he/Dr. Roth now wants to be part of the solution--and he wants you to be too. Welcome to his movement -a call to embrace narrative medicine, for your own good. This is a book for every one - doctors, patients and healthcare providers - to buck the current system. Through THE ME IN MEDICINE: REVIVING THE LOST ART OF HEALING, the author reveals the approach that is critical for both the doctor and the patient to improve treatment, the healthcare system, reduce misdirection (and possible cost) as well as overtreatment by doctors. THE ME IN MEDICINE, whether "Me" the doctor or "Me" the patient, will revive the lost art of healing for the benefit of both/all.

Pastor Tracy Wilde reflects on the absence of empathy in today’s world and shares how Christians can renew their compassion to help unify not only the church, but society as well, in this timely and refreshing guide. Achieving meaningful relationships and cultivating lasting connections with others are often some of the most valuable experiences of our lives. So why can it sometimes feel so difficult to relate to the people around us if we all share the same human desire to bond? In Finding the Lost Art of Empathy, Tracy Wilde addresses the reasons why we struggle with showing empathy toward others and explains why we ultimately avoid it—and even avoid contact with others altogether. She explores the different facets that have promoted isolation instead of community and provides the antidote for a more unified, loving, and empathetic society. Inspirational and encouraging, Wilde inspires us to self-reflect and remove whatever obstacles from our lives that may be blocking our way to true fulfillment in our relationships—and living life the way God intends us to.

Principles Of Cardiovascular Neural Regulation In Health And Disease

This book is an attempt to indicate to researchers and clinicians a simple way to approach the complexity of cardiovascular neural regulation. A conceptual pillar like homeostasis is contrasted with instability and a continuous interaction of opposing mechanisms that have negative and positive feedback characteristics, and is considered to subserve the multitude of patterns pertaining to physiology. However, in pathophysiological conditions the final design is most often replaced by largely purposeless neural mechanisms. The complexity of cardiovascular neural regulation, reflected by the state of sympathovagal balance, is also assessed in the frequency domain. Power spectrum analysis of heart rate and arterial pressure variability, a sophisticated but simply explained approach, provides an unprecedented tool to evaluate this interaction in both physiological and pathophysiological conditions. The elementary characteristics of nonlinear dynamics are also outlined. Finally, the need for an ethical structure for science and medicine is analyzed.
