As a treatment for diabetes, the current American Diabetes Association guidelines are a disaster for Type 1 diabetics. The ADA recommendations actually make blood sugar control much harder and increase the danger of hypoglycemic episodes. The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes eBook provides the practical information to implement a ketogenic diet in the context of managing insulin needs. Coauthored with Dr. Keith Runyan, a physician who treats his own type 1 diabetes with a ketogenic diet (with the result of an HbA1c of 5.0) the book contains over 300 pages of referenced, applicable information on getting off the blood sugar roller coaster, avoiding hypoglycemia, lowering HbA1c test results and avoiding diabetic complications.

The 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP has been fully revised and updated throughout to retain its pole position as the textbook to accompany core medical training (CMT) and prepare candidates for success in the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills and a future specialty career. Features Fully revised for the new Station 5 and completely updated throughout. Promotes understanding and deeper learning of modern medicine applicable to PACES and the specialist registrar. Emphasis on clinical assessment – history-taking, examination and communication skills – equipping candidates with appropriate differential diagnoses from which to develop the right diagnosis. Encourages candidates to question why a diagnosis has arisen and consider its consequences. For example, ‘Heat failure’ is a not a diagnosis until a candidate has considered the differential diagnoses of breathlessness and decided why heart failure is most likely, and then considered its cause (not always ischaemic heart disease), its presentation (acute, chronic, left or right ventricular or both) and, most importantly, the effects of it and its treatments on a patient’s life. This 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP continues to provide fully revised, up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of investigations and treatments. Whilst the emphasis of PACES is on clinical skills, candidates who understand when, for example, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis might benefit from a biologic agent and how this will influence inflammatory disease, is better equipped for success. A one-volume text giving candidates complete preparation for the PACES exam within one portable volume 250 cases organised into the 5 stations of the PACES exam – respiratory and abdominal system, history taking, cardiovascular and nervous system, communication and ethics and skin, locomotion, eyes and endocrine systems Engaging question-and-answer approach at the end of each case – excellent preparation for the exam Boxed tips highlight vital information – helps identify what is most important to remember Produced in full colour throughout Colour coding for each station Many more illustrations added - now over 300 clinical photographs and line drawings in colour Many more cases added, bringing the number up to 250 - 50 per station History-taking and communication skills stations now revised so that they exactly mimic the requirements of the exam

This time honoured classic has been re-built completely: after six editions the editor has decided that a radical revision is necessary. The new edition has been developed as a result of intensive consultation with trainees in OB/GYN as to what they want, what they need and how they learn. The book is organised into two halves covering obstetrics and gynaecology. Within each, the chapters are structured into sections containing pedagogic features such as boxes, highlights and key points for the first time. It contains everything the clinician needs to practice the art of obstetrics and gynaecology and sufficient information to help sub-specialists develop their specific interests. This text is recommended reading for the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology membership examination. This seventh edition contains 21 new chapters: Anatomy of the Pelvis and Reproductive Tract Placenta and Fetal Membranes Antenatal Care Anaesthesia and Analgesia Recurrent Miscarriage Ectopic Pregnancy Trophoblastic Disease Genetics and Prenatal Diagnosis Drugs and Pregnancy Obstetric Emergencies Prolonged Pregnancy Renal Disease Termination of Pregnancy Imaging in Gynaecology PMS Assisted Reproduction Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Sexual Dysfunction Psychological Aspects of Pregnancy Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault - now on MRCOG curriculum Ethical Dilemmas This seventh edition has been significantly updated with a wide range of internationally renowned contributors who are all experts in their field, bringing this book to the cutting edge of knowledge in obstetrics and gynaecology. "It was my favourite textbook when I was working for my examinations and I am still using it. I can recommend this edition to current trainees wholeheartedly. It is certainly worth buying."

The 7th edition comes 32 years after the publication of the first Study Guide by American College of Emergency Physicians in 1978! The textbook changes over the years have mirrored the complexity and expansion of the practice of emergency medicine. Emergency physicians are specialists in time-focused treatments such as trauma, stroke, shock, and heart attack, and the 7th edition provides the most contemporary information as possible for acute conditions. Emergency Medicine is the only population-based specialty and is the only specialty that serves as the safety net for those with illnesses, injuries, socioeconomic barriers to care, and conditions that require the mobilization of resources for care on a 24/7 basis. We have expanded the scope of the book to represent all those conditions for which patients seek ED care, and to include recommendations for transitions of care to inpatient and outpatient services. We have tried to construct the book so it is a primary resource for ED conditions from A to Z—well, almost A to Z—Air Transport to Xanthines. As a primary resource, the 7th edition has expanded procedure content and provides a series of procedure videos to accompany this text. The full collection of videos is available on AccessEmergencyMedicine.com, and the collection will continue to expand. The video collection with this text is aimed at both learner and teacher, to learn and teach the precise steps and potential errors with each procedure. Emergency Medicine is a global specialty and is officially recognized as a specialty in nearly 50 countries around the world. The problems, challenges, and practices of emergency are globally similar. The 7th edition is notable for contributions by emergency physicians from 17 countries. The editors of the 7th edition are all actively practicing emergency physicians, and their guidance, insight, and careful attention have been invaluable in its preparation. Thank you Steve, John, David, Rita, and Garth. Barbara Steckler, BS, EMT-P, has served as our managing editor in Chapel Hill and has been invaluable in managing the manuscripts for us. Many of our medical illustrations have been drawn by Cinnamon Larson, PhD. We have been fortunate to work with Anne Sydor, PhD, as our McGraw-Hill Medical Editor. Anne has special gifts in project organization and management, as well as an in-depth knowledge of medical science. Anne’s commitment to this project has been exemplary, and I can honestly say that her energy and perseverance have enabled us to produce the best edition ever. Judith E.
