Neurocritical Care Board Review: Questions and Answers provides clinicians with a thorough review of the complex subspecialty of Neurocritical Care, using a question-and-answer (Q&A) format. The Q&A format is easily readable, high yield, and serves as good practice for test takers or anyone looking to improve or reinforce essential knowledge. The book covers the key topics pertinent to (and found on) neurocritical care boards, and is organized according to the exam core curriculum outline.. A total of 649 questions address both neuroscience critical care (general neurology, neurotrauma, neurovascular and neurosurgical problems) and general critical care topics (systems trauma, cardiovascular, infectious disease, pulmonary and renal issues, and hemodynamic monitoring). Detailed explanations follow in the answer section of each chapter, along with references for further study. Where relevant, neuroimaging, EEG and monitoring waveforms, and other images are included in case questions to allow candidates to familiarize themselves with these tools that form a significant part of the exam. Features of Neurocritical Care Board Review include: Comprehensive, high-yield review that covers all areas tested on the neurocritical care certifying exam Applicability to a wide range of physicians in multiple specialties reviewing for boards or looking to test skills and clinical acumen in this challenging area Question and answer format with detailed explanations and references to facilitate recall of must-know information and help identify knowledge gaps for further attention Material aggregated from multiple specialties into a singular resource for exam study
Clifford B. Saper, Chair of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, and Nicholas D. Schiff of Weill Medical College in NY join the original authors to thoroughly update this seminal text with over 90% new material. the goal of the new edition is to provide a clinically slanted volume that will help the reader understand and diagnose severe brain dysfunction both as it exists and as it evolves in the seriously ill. the book remains a treatise on pathophysiology because recent imaging, electrophysiologic, and biochemical technologies (discussed in the book) are by themselves insufficient substitute
"Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology: From Concepts to Transcription "provides readers with a basic foundation in both phonetics and phonology. The book has two goals: the first is to connect phonetics and phonology into a conceptual unity and the second is to demonstrate the practical relevance of phonetics, phonology, and phonetic transcription for beginning students in communication disorders and related disciplines, such as linguistics or education. Written with an abundance of real-life examples, this first edition provides readers with a large base of information, from the basic definitions of phonetics and phonology to their practical, clinical applications when analyzing speech samples. The text's uniqueness lies in how it connects the various concepts with practical examples. This helps students to solidify what they are learning and understand its relevance to clinical practice. Highlights of this New Text... Unique to this text -- A chapter on Phonological development explains the development of speech in children using three theoretical models, one of which is a contemporary model emphasizing nonlinear phonologies. Aseparate set of DVDs are available containing both audio and video resources for practice in transcription. This DVD set can be purchased using ISBN: 0-205-40285-2. Receive a 10% discount on both the text and the DVD set by using this special package ISBN: 0-205-62715-3 Case studies at the beginning of each chapter highlight specific concepts of that particular chapter. The case study is then revisited throughout the chapter, demonstrating how the information could be applied in a real-life situation. Extensive learning aids are provided in the form of focus questions, concept exercises, further readings, key terms, critical thinking questions, and multiple choicequestions. A thorough discussion of dialect, whichincludes definitions and examples of regional dialects, ethnic dialects, and foreign dialects. A chapter in which the core information presented for phonetics and phonology is integrated into a series of case studies which apply this knowledge to the analysis of speech. Examples include the analysis of regional dialects, emerging phonology, and a child with disordered articulation. Phonetic transcription workbook is included as an additional study aid as Part II of the textbook. This workbook guides students through a systematic learning process beginning with the identification of sounds within words, to transcribing multisyllabic words and short phrases.
