- Clinical Case Studies Across the Medical Continuum for Physical Therapists (2021; 1st Edition)
High-quality clinical case studies provide robust physical therapy learning and teaching tool
Direct access legislation and a growing aging population has led to a greater number of people with medical complexities seeking physical therapy services. To ensure physical therapy students are adequately prepared to enter the demanding workforce, academic educators must provide clinical case studies that match clinical demands. Clinical Case Studies Across the Medical Continuum for Physical Therapists by distinguished editors Julie Skrzat and Sean Griech and an impressive group of expert contributors was developed with that goal in mind.
Twenty medically complex case studies, each with three standalone cases covering three distinct clinical settings, are presented to show medical and physical therapy management throughout the continuum of care. These high-quality case studies cover all the body systems and detail conditions including chronic, neurological, oncologic, and traumatic, which closely mirror cases seen in clinical practice. Each case study includes extensive medical data from an interprofessional team, imaging/diagnostic tests, social history, and physical therapy information. The text promotes interprofessional education by requiring learners to consider elements beyond the physical therapy plan of care.
The design of the case studies enables learners to understand disease evolution, progression of medical management, and the reasoning behind subsequent changes in physical therapy care plans
Questions and answers encompassing all levels of Bloom's Taxonomy, coupled with pause points and key points, promote critical thinking and problem solving
Six videos demonstrate how experienced clinicians respond to real-time clinical challenges with effective patient management strategies
This must-have resource for doctorate-level physical therapy students promotes synthesis of information across all aspects of care. It provides a multidimensional representation of the patient, facilitating optimization of physical therapy plans of care, both in the classroom and clinic.
- Pocket Atlas of Echocardiography (2017; 2nd Edition)
In diagnostic cardiology, the effectiveness and reliability of state-of-the-art echocardiography is unsurpassed but-as with all ultrasound examinations-the results are highly operator dependent. The second edition of Boehmeke's Pocket Atlas of Echocardiography is concise and portable, including all the information necessary to perform and read echocardiograms, and to navigate the bewildering number of imaging planes that transect the heart, with ease and confidence.
More than 400 illustrations, including sharp, clear echocardiograms, corresponding full-color schematic diagrams, and 3-D images. For this new edition, all images showing cardiac disease have been post-processed to make them clearer and in more accurate relation to the explanatory drawings
Detailed descriptions of all the acoustic windows and imaging planes for every echocardiogram
A practical overview of the typical patient examination, including imaging and patient positioning
All cardiac diseases are shown: valvular heart disease, coronary heart disease, cardiomyopathies, prosthetic valves, carditis, septal defects, hypertensive heart diseases, intracardiac masses; depicted in B-mode, M-mode, Doppler and color Doppler
New to the second edition: nearly 80 videos are now accessible on the Thieme MediaCenter showing normal views and many pathologies in video mode
- General Pathology and Internal Medicine for Physical Therapists (2012; 1st Edition)
A key resource on internal medicine and general pathology written for physical therapists
Written by physicians, General Pathology and Internal Medicine for Physical Therapists introduces the basic principles of general pathology and internal medicine clearly and comprehensively for physical therapy (PT) students and practitioners. With this user-friendly book at hand, they will have the knowledge to identify underlying medical conditions, develop individualized treatment plans that take these factors into account, achieve sound therapeutic goals, and refer patients to other resources where necessary.
The only book on general pathology and internal medicine for physical therapists written with the in-depth knowledge and experience of practicing MDs
Organized in two logical sections: the first, General Pathology, provides a basic foundation in the origin and course of diseases, cardinal signs and symptoms, and diagnostic and therapeutic procedures; the second, Internal Medicine, presents the main diseases of the different organ systems with a short physiological introduction, the pathomechanisms, the clinical pictures, and the diagnostic and therapeutic management
Offers nearly 300 full-color, didactic illustrations that serve as a superb visual aid to learning
Includes numerous tables, chapter summaries, a glossary of medical terminology, and case studies that make every concept clear and accessible
Assists in exam preparation by providing over 160 study questions
Now a major part of the curriculum in undergraduate and graduate physical therapy programs, internal medicine and general pathology are part of the basic equipment of the physical therapist. For PT students, this book will be a training guide throughout their studies and a valuable review as they prepare for examinations. For practitioners of physical therapy and other allied health disciplines, it is a reliable and easy-to-use reference that will help them fully understand their patients’ medical conditions and provide the highest levels of care.
- Siegenthaler's Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicine: From Symptom to Diagnosis (2007; 1st Edition)
A pragmatic approach to differential diagnosis gives rapid, reliable answers to these questions: Which diseases are likely? What causes them? What are the typical characteristics of these disorders? Do they correspond with the symptoms in question? How can the preliminary diagnosis be confirmed? Siegenthaler's new Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicine guides the reader through the challenges of differential diagnosis across the spectrum of internal medicine.
Identify and understand key symptoms
Consider the whole patient in selecting possible diseases
Evaluate, exclude or confirm possible diagnoses
Make the correct diagnosis using an appropriate diagnostic procedure
Professor Walter Siegenthaler brings decades of international experience in clinical practice, teaching and writing on internal medicine to this new book. The book also benefits from close cooperation with the leaders of the specialist internal medicine departments at the University Hospital Zürich, and of other institutions and disciplines. The generalist and specialist aspects of internal medicine are thereby brought together to enhance the approach to the patient.
The book is directed at medical students, residents in most areas of medicine, practitioners of internal medicine, general practitioners, dermatologists, neurologists and rheumatologists and those involved with the basic subjects in medicine who wish to gain competence and knowledge in internal medicine.
From Symptom to Diagnosis:
Organized by functional system and symptom constellations
Covers all fields of internal medicine plus special treatment of subjects dermatology, neurology and rheumatology
Typical findings and signs for differentiation of all common, rare and even "exotic" diseases with pathophysiological background information
Nearly 1000 stunning figures and many instructive table-format overviews and differential diagnostic algorithms
Differential diagnostic evaluation of common laboratory test results, including step-by-step plans for further diagnosis
Learn by tracing the path from symptom to diagnosis, just as the physician encounters the situation in practice!
