Abstract
Hypertension remains a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. Self-monitoring of blood pressure by patients at home is currently recommended as a valuable tool for the diagnosis and management of hypertension. Unfortunately, in clinical practice, home blood pressure monitoring is often inadequately implemented, mostly due to the use of inaccurate devices and inappropriate methodologies. Thus, the potential of the method to improve the management of hypertension and cardiovascular disease prevention has not yet been exhausted. This volume presents the available evidence on home blood pressure monitoring, discusses its strengths and limitations, and presents strategies for its optimal implementation in clinical practice. Written by distinguished international experts, it offers a complete source of information and guide for practitioners and researchers dealing with the management of hypertension.

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
This case-based approach to the management of pediatric eye diseases and strabismus teaches the novice, as well as the experienced surgeon, how to conceptualize and analyze surgical planning to maximize patient outcomes, allowing readers to "get inside the head of the surgeon." Individual cases with clear instructions and an abundance of color illustrations, presented by experts in the field, teach critical information one case at a time. Practical Management of Pediatric Ocular Disorders and Strabismus provides the key guiding principles of a traditional textbook in an easy-to-digest format. Each of the text tackles a common or rare clinical situation and begins with the description of an illustrative case. The chapters are structured with sections on case description, differential diagnosis, management and outcomes with a list of possible complications and the approach to their management.
