Abstract
Vous serez probablement excitée et anxieuse à l’approche de la naissance de votre bébé. La durée moyenne d’une grossesse est de 40 semaines. La plupart des femmes accouchent entre la 38e et la 42e semaine. Beaucoup de bébés ne viennent pas au monde à la date prévue d’accouchement. Environ 85 % des bébés naissent dans la semaine qui précède ou qui suit la date prévue d’accouchement. La meilleure chose à faire est de considérer votre date prévue d’accouchement comme la meilleure « estimation possible ». La présente brochure explique à quoi vous attendre si la grossesse se poursuit après votre date prévue d’accouchement. Elle traite aussi du déroulement des évaluations post-terme et de la façon de vous préparer à ces consultations. Les symptômes exigeant un appel à l’unité du travail et de l’accouchement sont indiqués.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1925, “Giving Birth After Your Due Date”. You will likely feel excited and anxious as you wait for the birth of your baby. The average length of pregnancy is 40 weeks. Most women give birth between 38 to 42 weeks. Many babies are not born on their due date. About 85% of babies are born within one week before or after their due date. It’s best to think of your due date as a “best guess.” This pamphlet describes what to expect if you go past your due date. What is done during a Post-Dates Assessment (PDA) and how to get ready for these visits are covered. A list of symptoms which require you to call the Labour & Delivery Unit is listed.

Abstract
The Bone Book: An Orthopedic Pocket Manual is a complete guide to the essentials of orthopedics in today's busy hospital and outpatient settings. Concise chapters provide the basic knowledge that all orthopedic surgery residents, medical students, and supporting staff must know to handle the full range of conditions, injuries, and diseases for patients in the operating room and emergency department. Included are essentials of musculoskeletal anatomy, physical examination, orthopedic emergencies, and emergency room consults, including care for fractures, dislocations, bone/joint infections, and spinal cord injuries. Additional chapters cover operative room basics, such as patient positioning, prepping, and draping, and common orthopedic techniques, such as splinting, joint aspiration, and regional blocks. By compiling information commonly passed down from senior to junior surgeon, the authors have distilled a wide range of orthopedic fundamentals into one easy-to-read book.

Abstract
This instant gold standard title is a major contribution to the field of clinical medical ethics and will be used widely for reference and teaching purposes for years to come. Throughout his career, Mark Siegler, MD, has written on topics ranging from the teaching of clinical medical ethics to end-of-life decision-making and the ethics of advances in technology. With more than 200 journal publications and 60 book chapters published in this area over the course of his illustrious career, Dr. Siegler has become the pre-eminent scholar and teacher in the field. Indeed his work has had a profound impact on a range of therapeutic areas, especially internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, oncology, and medical education. Having grown steadily in importance the last 30 years, clinical ethics examines the practical, everyday ethical issues that arise in encounters among patients, doctors, nurses, allied health workers, and health care institutions. The goal of clinical ethics is to improve patient care and patient outcomes, and almost every large hospital now has an ethics committee or ethics consultation service to help resolve clinical ethical problems; and almost every medical organization now has an ethics committee and code of ethics. Most significantly, clinical ethics discussions have become a part of the routine clinical discourse that occurs in outpatient and inpatient clinical settings across the country. This seminal collection of 46 landmark works written by Dr. Siegler with colleagues throughout his career was edited by Dr. Laura Weiss Roberts and by Dr. Siegler. Dr. Roberts is a prominent psychiatric ethicist and physician-scientist as well as a mentee and longtime collaborator of Dr. Siegler. The text is organized around five themes of foundational scholarship: restoring and transforming the ethical basis of modern clinical medicine, the doctor-patient relationship, education and professionalism, end-of-life care, and clinical innovation.With introductory perspectives by a group of renowned scholars in medicine, Clinical Medical Ethics: Landmark Works of Mark Siegler, MD explains the field authoritatively and comprehensively and will be of invaluable assistance to all clinicians and scholars concerned with clinical ethics. .

Abstract
This book is aimed to bring the reader into the heart of the action of any health professional consulted for a patient with a neurogenic bladder (NB). Extensive textbooks of the NB exist but there is a lack of an actual practical guide for diagnosis and management of patients suffering from NB. This book provides a single source of information on consultation in neurourology. The text covers both urinary incontinence and retention resulting from NB dysfunction. The book also discusses complications of NB which include urinary tract infections, hydronephrosis, renal failure or autonomic dysreflexia. Sections address these clinical issues faced by physicians. This book provides a useful guide with comprehensive and practical instructions for all practitioners dealing with NB in their day-to-day clinical practice. It will serve as a valuable resource for those with a special interest in NB. The book reviews new data about diagnostic and management options. It also provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current NB guidelines from different societies. All chapters include the most up to date scientific and clinical information with the relevant level of clinical evidence and grade of recommendation.

Abstract
This unique title offers a novel exploration into the world of advance directives for patients with dementia. Based on real life ethics consultations the expert author has undertaken, the cases depict fascinating and challenging moral issues arising in a variety of healthcare facilities. The dynamics of the interdisciplinary health care teams of these patients, along with the dynamics of the families who are grappling to best serve their loved ones, are outlined and assessed; and the role each player's personal histories have on the ethical issues and their resolution in real life are explored. Following each case study, the author applies a range of concepts introduced in the beginning of the book to the relevant case study, thus integrating theory with a case-based approach. A user-friendly question-and-answer format provides a thought provoking and accessible learning experience for readers. Dementia and the Advance Directive: Lessons from the Bedside tackles complicated and realistic healthcare scenarios and offers an invaluable addition to the literature on advance directives.

Abstract
This innovative and important book describes a practical and clinically-relevant approach to the 'difficult' psychiatric consultation. The authors systematically examine psychodynamic theories, family systems theories, and legal and ethical aspects of these consultations. Difficult Psychiatric Consultations: An Integrated Approach is unique compared to most psychiatric texts, in that it weaves traditional concepts in understanding a person and their family with contemporary developmental and relational concepts. The importance of these concepts, when applied to the study of the complexities and the interplay between patients, treatment teams and patients' families in today's medical centers, is brought to life through rich, real-life clinical examples. These powerful clinical vignettes allow the reader to put himself in the psychiatric consultant's shoes as he navigates practical interventions to improve the outcomes of 'difficult' consultations. To that end, the authors provide tables to outline pre and post diagnosis observable patterns of the parties involved in the psychiatric consultation. This book has much to offer to general psychiatrists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, psychologists, nurse practitioners and social workers.

Abstract
The Frozen Section Library series provides concise, user-friendly, site specific handbooks that are well illustrated and highlight the pitfalls, artifacts and differential diagnosis issues that arise in the hurried frozen section scenario. Frozen Section Library: Lymph Nodes highlights the usefulness of techniques such as touch preparation cytology and fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology, as well as FNA biopsy. This fascicle also suggests proper handling for subsequent ancillary studies, including flow cytometric, cytogenetic, and molecular studies. Special emphasis is given to the limitations of frozen section diagnosis in lymph node pathology. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific information. This book serves as a very useful resource for physicians in the frozen section room and in intra-operative consultation situations dealing with, and interested in, this very complex field of diagnostic pathology. Frozen Section Library: Lymph Nodes is of great value to pathologists, residents, and fellows who diagnose pathologic processes involving lymph nodes. Cherie H. Dunphy, M.D. is Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Executive Director of Hematopathology and Hematopathology Fellowship Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, NC.

Abstract
This book provides basic knowledge and skills for non-dental healthcare practitioners, helping them recognize the importance of oral health, perform initial oral health assessments, consult dentists when necessary, and offer preventive advice and counseling. As people age, they tend to refrain from routine dental care, while the number of consultations with non-dental healthcare providers (physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists etc.) increases. However, few healthcare providers are adequately trained to assess oral problems. The relevance of this book is underscored by the recently published European policy recommendations on oral health in older adults by the European College of Gerodontology and the European Geriatric Medicine Society, which highlight the importance of the active involvement of non-dental primary care practitioners in oral health assessment and promotion. These two respected European Societies have identified a significant gap in education, practice and health policies and described the necessary action plans. This book helps to fill the educational gap identified in the recommendations and will be an invaluable tool for all healthcare providers working with older people.

Abstract
The aim of this book is not only to help climbers and coaches gain a better understanding of medical consultations, but also to offer insights into practical treatment. As regards the medical field, the explanation of the different forces exerted on fingers during climbing allows better assessment of the causes of injuries and can help injured climbers adjust when they return to training. Despite their small size and fragility, fingers are essential in rock-climbing. The publication of this book was motivated by the numerous possible injuries and the required treatments, as well as the desire to connect medicine to this field. Combining scientific and medical research offers a new approach to training and practice. Indeed, promoting cooperation between specialists and coaches for the benefit of climbers can reduce the risk of lesions and improve training.

Abstract
A user-friendly, pocket-sized reference for all physicians faced with endocrine care and challenges in hospitalized patients, this handbook covers the most common issues leading to an inpatient endocrine consult, providing differential diagnoses, a reasonable and practical approach to investigating and managing the condition, and advice for follow-up. Conditions discussed include thyrotoxicosis and thyroid storm, calcium disorders, osteoporosis, Cushing's syndrome, pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, primary hyperaldosteronism, hypoglycemia in diabetic and non-diabetic patients, and endocrine issues during pregnancy, among others. Suggestions for further reading are included, providing more context for well-established clinical approaches. Written by experts with years of experience providing endocrinology consultations in a hospital setting, Handbook of Inpatient Endocrinology is a valuable, high-yield resource for endocrine residents and fellows, but it will be equally useful for any busy hospitalist or primary care physician when endocrinology consults are not available.

Abstract
Over the past decades, health services research has informed policy for improving health care delivery. Computer simulations have great potential to drive full scale improvement, yet the technology has rarely been used to evaluate proposed changes before they are implemented in health care systems. Health Care Evaluation Using Computer Simulation describes a new interdisciplinary approach, one that incorporates the simulation of health system operations into the paradigm of health services research. Beginning by reviewing the processes of health care evaluation and simulation experiments, the book presents a complete methodology for conducting simulation studies for evaluating policy alternatives. Unified Modeling Language and Statechart diagramming are introduced as a means for developing realistic requirements of discrete-event models and policies. And to clearly illustrate simulation modeling in context, an extended series of examples illustrates the use of simulations throughout a single department in a busy hospital. Chapters take the reader through each step of the methodology, featuring: A comparison of approaches to constructing simulation models of health care systems; An overview geared toward developing research questions; A framework for determining model requirements and designing simulations; Methods for evaluating simulation experiments at the cluster and individual levels; Guidelines for clear reporting of simulation studies; Examples of computer simulation in surgical services, from appointment booking to discharge planning. As a research reference and a hands-on blueprint, Health Care Evaluation Using Computer Simulation breaks innovative new ground for researchers and graduate students in health services research and health care management.health care management.

Abstract
The fourth edition of this well received book provides an authoritative and up-to-date resource to support good practice in travel medicine, a field that has evolved substantially in recent years. Concretely, there has been intensified monitoring of health problems among travellers, as well as extensive research efforts, which have led to the development of evidence-based approaches to the field. The book includes expert recommendations regarding e.g. immunizations, malaria prophylaxis, travellers’ diarrhea, altitude sickness, emerging infections, and non-infectious health issues encountered by travellers. It provides a practical approach to the pre-travel consultation and management of most issues that arise in medical care for travellers. In addition, it provides expert advice for high-risk travellers, e.g. those with immunosuppression, the elderly, pregnant women and young children. The text offers a user-friendly, practical handbook for healthcare practitioners during their clinical consultations, as well as nurses and pharmacists.

Abstract
A successor to the popular The Psychiatrist in Court: A Survival Guide, The Mental Health Professional in Court has expanded the scope of the earlier book to include other professionals in the field. The authors have thoroughly updated the text, and provided a comprehensive coverage of legal processes. This book equips the mental health professional with a hands-on, practical working knowledge of what to expect-and how to survive-in the courtroom and the legal system. The book includes many helpful features: An informal, user-friendly writing style that is accessible, reassuring, and empowering, and a succinct presentation that helps the reader achieve mastery of the material quickly and efficiently-a boon when prepping for a court appearance; A practical, rather than theoretical, approach to issues, with examples from literally hundreds of actual cases and countless consultations with peers and colleagues on how to deal with the legal system; A thorough understanding of the book's audience. Because the authors understand that most mental health professionals' knowledge about going to court comes from television and movies, the book addresses the many deeply embedded misperceptions and distortions perpetuated by the media, taking the reader from rudimentary information about the legal system to more sophisticated topics, such as the different approaches to testifying; An indispensable legal glossary keyed to the text, which enhances understanding of courtroom terminology.

Abstract
This text covers basic principles and practice of on-call psychiatric care in the geriatric patient in various medical settings. It compiles the most likely complaints and provides assessment and management tools for each situation. Written and edited by expert geriatric psychiatrists, emergency psychiatrists, consultation/liaison psychiatrists, geriatricians, and other multidisciplinary specialists, this is the first handbook devoted to on-call geriatric psychiatry. Chapters contain an important summary of key points for managing clinical situations, case studies, and reflective questions. This text brings together relevant principles of on-call geriatric psychiatry provided in clinical settings such as emergency, acute and subacute inpatient, outpatient, residential, correctional, and consultation/liaison. It includes clinical topics such as psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, substance abuse, and includes coverage of medical ethics and the law, utilization of contemporary technology, and administrative and public health policy. On-Call Geriatric Psychiatry is the first practical guide to knit together evidence-based medicine and geriatric psychiatric principles and practice guidelines and is a valuable resource for trainees, psychiatrists, geriatricians, emergency departments, nursing home physicians, and other health professionals working with older adult patients.
