Abstract
This book provides a concise yet comprehensive overview of acid-base disorders. Each chapter reviews an acid-base disorder, covering pathophysiology, evaluation, and management of the disorder. The chapters include clinical cases and a Q&A section, based on scenarios and questions that clinicians regularly encounter when treating patients with these disorders. The book concludes with two chapters on acid-based disorders in special patient populations, including critically ill patients, pregnant patients, and surgical patients. Written by an expert in the field, Acid-Base Disorders: Clinical Evaluation and Management is a state-of-the-art resource that should assist clinicians and practitioners in managing patients with acid-base disorders.

Abstract
This book describes the fundamental process of senescence, and reviews a new concept developed by a number of research groups that is based on cellular senescence and its secretome. This concept provides a basic explanation of the main physiological and pathological features of senescence, and delineates possibilities for “treating” it. Following an introduction to the emerging medical landscape, the increasing incidence of a new epidemiological group (age-related “chronic non-transmissible diseases”), and the multiple origins of aging, the book explores and characterizes the senescent cell, which is linked to benign and pathological age-related manifestations. In turn, the closing chapters discuss how to “treat” or “prevent” the aging process, underscoring the central role of physical exercise and caloric reduction as compared to new senolytic approaches. Appendices are also provided, and address circadian rhythms, telomere shortening, diabetic cardiomyopathy, and senescence in plants and bacteria. Given its scope, the book will primarily be of interest to geriatricians, but will also appeal to a wider range of clinicians.

Abstract
This ambitious and comprehensive manual represents an essential contribution to our current understanding of interactions between heart and brain, a research topic generating growing interest. Despite the increasing awareness that neural mechanisms are the primary cause of cardiac disease and its progression, therapy continues to focus on end-organ protection and does not approach the neural core of the problem. Growing public health problems such as heart failure are still treated with autonomic drugs that are 30-40 years old and simply act on cardiac receptors. However, it has now been shown that the progression of ischemic heart disease to heart failure is mainly due to abnormal central responses to incipient cardiac disease, with neural activation the primary cause rather than the consequence of cardiac remodeling. Written by leading international experts in their respective research areas, it presents a variety of perspectives on the core topic: from social and philosophical to gender-related aspects. Designed for a broad readership, it includes dedicated sections for cardiologists, psychiatrists, neurologists and psychotherapists looking for a more insightful and targeted approach to neuro-cardiovascular disease.

Abstract
The book covers the basic science and clinical aspects of cardiovascular calcification and bone mineralization. Cardiovascular calcification is the leading predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, with a predictive value more significant than blood lipid levels. The presence of calcific mineral in cardiovascular tissues alters biomechanical performance, increasing workload on the heart and potentiating atherosclerotic plaque rupture and subsequent heart attack and stroke. This book examines the role of calcification in cardiovascular disease covering topics such as calcification in the atherosclerotic plaques and aortic valves arteries and valves, aortic valve replacement, peripheral artery disease, imaging of early calcification and target discovery. In addition, various forms of ectopic calcification as well as mechanisms of bone mineralization are discussed. Cardiovascular Calcification and Bone Mineralization is an essential resource for clinicians, researchers, and other medical professionals in cardiology, pathology, and biomedical engineering.

Abstract
The second edition of this key resource provides a broad and fundamental overview of basic cardiovascular (CV) hemodynamic principles with a focus on clinical assessment of CV physiology. Extensively updated, the book includes new coverage on noninvasive hemodynamic assessment and the effects of selected interventions on CV hemodynamics. It provides an introduction to the basic concepts such as preload, afterload, myocardial contractility, and cardiac output. Subsequent chapters examine the effects of interventions such as vasodilators, beta blockers, pressor agents, inotropes, and different forms of invasive circulatory support. The book also focuses on various methods of hemodynamic evaluation including echocardiography, CT/MRI, noninvasive hemodynamic assessment, and cardiac catheterization. The book concludes with a discussion of proper diagnosis, evaluation, and management of patients using hemodynamic data on a variety of specific disease states. An invaluable contribution to the Contemporary Cardiology Series, the Second Edition of Cardiovascular Hemodynamics: An Introductory Guide is an essential resource for physicians, residents, fellows, medical students, and researchers in cardiology, emergency medicine, critical care, and internal medicine.

This book resolves to bridge the communication gap between research and clinical practice for circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders. Beginning with a scientific background on biological timekeeping, opening chapters describe the crucial nature of maintaining delicate temporal organization of physiological and molecular events within the body. Following this are discussions on circadian physiology and methods of circadian assessments. Subsequent chapters then relay comprehensive information regarding the International Classification of Sleep Disorders-defined circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders (CRSWDs), specifically discussing etiology and epidemiology, but focusing on evidence-based treatment data. Concluding discussions provide guidance for the application of light therapy and discuss future roles for optimized lighting environments. Nuanced and market-demanded, Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorders: An Evidence-Based Guide for Clinicians and Investigators is an invaluable resource for Sleep Medicine clinicians, circadian researchers, and other interested parties.

Abstract
This book establishes and specifies a rigorously scientific and clinically valid basis for nonpharmaceutical approaches to many common diseases and disorders found in clinical settings. It includes lifestyle and supplement recommendations for beginning and maintaining autonomic nervous system and mitochondrial health and wellness. The book is organized around a six-pronged mind-body wellness program and contains a series of clinical applications and frequently asked questions. The physiologic need and clinical benefit and synergism of all six aspects working together are detailed, including the underlying biochemistry, with exhaustive references to statistically significant and clinically relevant studies. The book covers a range of clinical disorders, including anxiety, arrhythmia, atherosclerosis, bipolar disease, dementia, depression, fatigue, fibromyalgia, heart diseases, hypertension, mast cell disorder, migraine, and PTSD. Clinical Autonomic and Mitochondrial Disorders: Diagnosis, Prevention, and Treatment for Mind-Body Wellness is an essential resource for physicians, residents, fellows, medical students, and researchers in cardiology, primary care, neurology, endocrinology, psychiatry, and integrative and functional medicine. It provides therapy options to the indications and diagnoses published in our book Clinical Autonomic Dysfunction (Springer, 2014).
