by Claire Hilton

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book tells the story of Barbara Robb and her pressure group, Aid for the Elderly in Government Institutions (AEGIS). In 1965, Barbara visited 73-year-old Amy Gibbs in a dilapidated and overcrowded National Health Service psychiatric hospital back-ward. She was so appalled by the low standards that she set out to make improvements.

Barbara influenced government policy, to improve psychiatric care and health service complaints procedures, and to establish a hospitals' in...

Genetic Counselling

by Sics Editore

Every doctor will need at some stage to answer questions relating to the hereditary nature of diseases and discuss relevant issues with the patient. A patient should be referred to a genetics specialist when hereditary issues require further investigation, for example when a condition occurring in family members or relatives is suspected to be genetic and the diagnosis is not clear a genetic condition, often very rare, has been diagnosed in the family about which it proves difficult to find further information. The role of a genetics specialist (medical geneticist) is purely an advisory one and he/she will not take part in decisions relating to, for example, family planning, prenatal diagnosis, carrier testing or predictive testing.

Fractures in Children

by Sics Editore

The majority of common fractures in children can be managed by a general practitioner. If a child presents after a fall with significant swelling or deformity of the injured limb or obvious pain around the bone, it is likely that the child has sustained a fracture. A fracture is very painful: even before the child is examined and treated, adequate and timely pain relief must be administered . The purpose of immobilisation in children’s non-displaced fractures is usually pain relief since the fracture would heal spontaneously even without the support.

Aging by Design: How New Thinking on Aging Will Change Your Life

by Theodore Goldsmith

Why do we age? How do we age? These questions have baffled scientists for centuries and remain unresolved. The answer to the how question is critical to our ability to successfully prevent and treat age-related diseases like cancer and heart disease that now cause the majority of all deaths in the developed world. Because of major difficulties in directly experimentally determining causes of aging, the answer to the why question is critical to guiding research efforts directed toward identifying and altering processes involved in age-related diseases. Evolution theory plays a critical role in the why issue because it attempts to explain why each living organism has its particular design and therefore why different species display different aging characteristics and different life spa...

Asthma: Symptoms and Diagnosis

by Sics Editore

Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways. Persons susceptible to asthma get symptoms associated with the inflammation. The symptoms usually include an airway constriction of variable degree, which is relieved spontaneously or with treatment. Common symptoms include dyspnoea, wheezing and prolonged cough. The inflammation increases the sensitivity of the airways to many irritants. Auscultation of the lungs, spirometry, bronchodilatation test, peak expiratory flow (PEF) monitoring and chest x-ray are the basic examinations. Other examinations may be performed in uncertain cases or when a more exact classification of the disease is pursued.

Clinical Use of Neuroradiological Imaging

Always consider, whether the possible benefit from the investigation is greater than the harm to the patient due to radiation exposure.Computed tomography (CT) is the easiest and most rapid method for identifying intracranial haemorrhages and for acute differential diagnosis between cerebral haemorrhage and infarction.Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the best method for the examination of the brain and the back. It is, however, slower than CT and not so easily available.As computed tomographic angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) have become more common, the use of carotid and cerebral angiographies (DSA) has become restricted to special situations.Carotid ultrasonography is a non-invasive and easily available first-line procedure for detecting carotid artery steno...

Aphasia

by Sics Editore

Aphasia is a disorder affecting the processing, formulation and comprehension of spoken and written language resulting from a disease or trauma. Most commonly aphasia occurs secondary to cerebral infarction involving the left cerebral hemisphere. Cerebral haemorrhage of this region will likewise cause aphasia. Speech disorders of some kind occur in over half of patients with acute cerebrovascular disease. Sudden deterioration in the ability to speak is one of the warning signs of disturbed cerebral circulation. The character of aphasia is linked to the location and extent of the cerebral lesion. Aphasia may be accompanied by disturbances of other higher brain functions, including: articulation through the speech organs (dysarthria) memory functions (amnesia) perception (agnosia) voluntary ...
